Patience is A Virtue...

I'm still way too tired from my trip to the US western states (i.e. Olympia, Washington; Astoria, Oregon; and San Jose, California) and I do not have the energy and time to write a decent post. So I turn to Blogthings...

You Are Very Patient

You are an incredibly patient soul. You rarely get rattled or frustrated.

You are willing to let others take their time... even if it means you must wait.

You have the makings of a great teacher, parent, or leader.

You are able to deal with people's annoyances and quirks. You don't let yourself get angry.

Agree? Disagree? Hehehehehe...

LOST Gets Five Emmy Nods

Hello from warm and sunny San Jose, California! It is six days into our road trip and this is the first time I've had a chance to go on an actual computer. (I have been living on my BlackBerry and iPod Touch.)

I did not even know that the Emmy Awards nominations were going to be announced this morning. I must have forgotten it because of all the fun I'm having. Hehehehe...

It's nice to see that LOST is nominated for five awards:

Outstanding Drama Series
Lost • ABC • Grass Skirt Productions and ABC Studios

Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Drama Series
Lost • The Incident • ABC • Grass Skirt Productions and ABC Studios
Stephen Semel, Editor
Mark Goldman, Editor
Chris Nelson, Editor

Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (One Hour)
Lost • The Incident • ABC • Grass Skirt Productions and ABC Studios
Robert Anderson, Production Sound Mixer
Ken King, Production Sound Mixer
Scott Weber, Re-Recording Mixer
Frank Morrone, Re-Recording Mixer

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series
Lost • ABC • Grass Skirt Productions and ABC Studios
Michael Emerson, as Ben Linus

Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series
Lost • The Incident • ABC • Grass Skirt Productions and ABC Studios
Carlton Cuse, Writer
Damon Lindelof, Writer

Like the previous years, I really hope that LOST wins any of the major awards (best drama, best supporting actor - drama, and best writing - drama). LOST's win for the sound mixing in the Creative Emmys last year was nice, but Michael Emerson was robbed in the supporting drama actor category.

I just have one question: how come Josh Holloway and Elizabeth Mitchell were snubbed? They were both amazing in Season 5, especially in the last several episodes, yet they aren't nominated. Evangeline Lilly also did a great job in "Whatever Happened, Happened" (her best acting yet). Jeremy Davies was also fantastic in Season 5. Nevertheless, congratulations to Michael Emerson for his Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series nomination!

I am so glad that Darlton's writing for the season 5 finale, "The Incident," was recognized. Congrats, Damon and Carlton! It's a shame, though, that Jack Bender's directing went unrecognized.

I am also glad that How I Met Your Mother (Outstanding Comedy Series), Neil Patrick Harris (Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series), Jim Parsons (Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series), Phil Keoghan (Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program), Fringe (Outstanding Special Visual Effects For A Series), and Sandra Oh & Chandra Wilson (Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series) are nominated. Yay!

And I was pleasantly surprised to see this:

Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media - Fiction
The Dharma Initiative •

ABC Entertainment Marketing

Oh yeah!

Am I Happy Being Single?

You Love Being Single

In general, you're very happy being single.

You like doing your own thing, and you're happy not to have to compromise.

You're not opposed to being attached, but you're not going to settle.

Someone else should your enhance your life, and you're happy to wait for that person.

Now, join me as I sing "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" by Beyonce. *Wink wink*

One more thing: quiz creators need to proofread their work. Seriously.

Gone Camping...

I've been very busy.

In addition to work, church, business planning, and LOST Rewatch, I received my course materials from SFU Writing and Publishing Program, and I've gotta get started on Assignment 1 that is due on July 31st. Also, I've been preparing for my trip to Washington, Oregon, and California. You know, writing a packing list (thanks, Google Docs!), actually packing my clothes and other essentials, and making sure my electronics are fully charged.

Yep. I'm going on vacation. Woot woot!

So there might not be another blog post until I come back on July 20th. I know, I know: I haven't blogged since Canada Day. Like I said, I've been very busy. Unfortunately, Blogger Mobile doesn't work with Canadian cell phones, so can't do that either. Maybe I'll try to find a Wi-Fi hotspot and blog from my iPod Touch?

Anyhoo, have a great summer and please pray for our protection.

Ciao for now!

Happy 142nd Birthday, Canada!!!

I am spending my Canada Day working on my freelance editorial services website. But I have to do something in honour of my country's B'Day!

Check out this YouTube video message from Canada's Prime Minister, Stephen Harper:

Hey, wait a minute... Canada is now 142 years old. It's the Numbers, man! Hehehe...
