So, there you have it; the long awaited review. I hope that both of you found it satisfactory.

So, the big question is: What am I gonna listen to on my drive to work now? Well, I listen to KSL News Radio on my way home but that's not a viable option for the morning. Why you ask? Well, I will tell you. I can't stand listening to Amanda Dickson. Now, please don't misunderstand; I have no doubt that she is a delightful person. In fact, that is part of the problem. She is just too freakin' perky. Seriously, that woman could be talking about a baby being murdered and still sound like she's about to erupt into a fit of giggles. I mean, her voice is so sugary sweet I'm surprised she doesn't get cavities just from talking. She's kinda the opposite of Richard G. Scott who always sounds like he's about to start crying. Now, on the exceedingly unlikely event that Ms. Dickson should read this post I would like to say: I'm sorry. It's not you; it's me. Or better yet: It's not you, it's just your voice. If you are saddened by reading this I will happily bake you a delicious pound cake and add you as a facebook friend.
Anyway, if anybody has any suggestions of a new radio station for me to listen to in the morning I would be happy to hear it. And for those of you who love Amanda Dickson and find her voice wonderfully delightful, please feel free to scold me and call me names.

Now, whenever Collin sees the tree he tries to say popcorn because we have started singing that song more often. At least he will grow up understanding it. When I was a wee little lad I had no apricot tree in my yard so I really never understood the association between an apricot tree and popcorn. There was even a time when I was really little that I actually thought that the blossoms on an apricot tree literally exploded off the tree. Of course, as any little boy would, I thought that would be pretty cool to see.

- I can spend a ludicrous amount of money and get cable or satellite.
- I can wait for several months until the show comes out on DVD and either buy it or try to check it out at the library.
- I can try to find someone who gets The SyFy Channel and by employing my considerable charm and mad baking skills convince them to record the episodes for me.
- I can look into buying the episodes on iTunes as they become available.
Of course, there may be other possible solutions to this sticky problem but, those are all the ones I can think of at the moment. If anyone has any bright ideas I will be happy to hear them.

So, as much as I liked this show I have to ask myself why it was that it ultimately didn't make it. Here are some of my ideas:
- It came from the mind of Josh Whedon. Now that is not meant as an insult to the show's mastermind but the fact of the matter is, Josh Whedon tends to make some really quirky shows that often don't have mass appeal.
- Eliza Dushku is kind of a twit. Sorry, she's a decent actress (as she clearly showed in the finale) but when it comes down to it she probably just wasn't the right person for this role. She simply doesn't play the "butt-kick chick" part of her role very convincingly. It also didn't help that she's the star of the show and she seemed to be upstaged by Fran Kranz, Enver Gjokaj and most every other member of the cast.
So, whatever the reasons may be, it's over and I for one am sad to see it go. I shall however, take comfort in the fact that at least LOST returns this week.

At 10:30am on Thursday December 31, 2009 I had the chance to interview with a Freight Forwarder in the area called Air & Sea International/Freightlink. About a half-hour after I got home they called me up and offered me a position in their Operations Department. Alisa and I took the weekend to talk it over and come to a decision. This morning I called them up and accepted the job.
I have been out of work for about 14 and a half months. Alisa and I are very grateful to everyone out there that has helped us and prayed for us throughout this difficult time. In particular I want to thank the McAllisters who have watched Collin during most of the job interviews I have had over the past months.
I officially start on January 12th. I am really looking forward to getting back out into the workforce. Thank you all again for everything you have done for our family.
