So. I’m doing a review for a test I have tomorrow and I’ve hit a roadblock. Oh, ok, I found it now. This might as well have been Twittered, for all anyone will care. Hey, I took a bunch of pictures this weekend, many of which I haven’t uploaded yet… but also, many of which I have. Go look if you’re bored (be sure to click page 2 as well). [Aside: When Flickr people add me who have displayed photos they took of the corpse … Continue reading

In the span of 25 minutes…

Walked in on a girl in the bathroom who was screaming hysterically at the toilet. She then told me I could use it, whereby I asked, “Um, is it working all right?” She then began to cry because she had just flushed her Motorolla RAZR down the toilet. Overheard a conversation about Dunnville while on the bus home. A girl told another girl that all they had in Dunnville was a bowling alley. The other girl then proceeded to ask the first what a bowling … Continue reading

I was pretty sure I couldn’t do it, but it only took me from 2pm until now to read the three disgustingly long chapters I needed to, with just one break to eat a [horrible] packet of Thai noodles [that cook up like Mr Noodles which has sent my stomach into an effervescent spiral of hellishness] so that I didn’t starve. I should’ve just eaten dirt off the kitchen floor. Plenty for all! This morning, I enjoyed breakfast with Garth. That was a nice switch! … Continue reading

Sexual Healing

Today: Car battery died today before I left for school, so I took the bus instead, despite the fact that it would mean disrupting the class when I walked in 15 minutes after it started. Better late than never, I thought to myself. (See also, in Nikki’s strikeout mantras: You have to spend money to make money!, and Think positive!, and You can’t make your candle brighter by blowing out someone else’s flame.) So I hop on Pop the bus and things are going good. … Continue reading

Embracing the Midweek Weekend

Shockingly, school’s going great. I got a nice, swift rejection from a company for an interview that I went to a week or so ago, but not because I wasn’t great. (They said I was great!) Actually, they’ve had to re-evaluate their department headcount (which means hiring freeze in real people terms), so for now, they can’t hire me on. They would like me to call back around March though, and we can discuss what can be done then, because they really, really liked me. … Continue reading

Happy how?

I am actually looking very … backward at starting school. (Just four more months, just four more months.) I already miss my recently-found freedom. I don’t think I’ll be going back to school after this year. How incredibly disappointing it has been. At least there are still a few nice things in life to keep me sane. Just wondering how my purse got blood all over the one side. Note to self: Do not put purse on floor of parking garage from this day forward. … Continue reading

Code Red

I couldn’t have picked a more beautiful bunch of winter days to have off work. The sky is blue (as far as I can tell with my curtains over the windows), and yesterday was a good day for pictures. Had a blueberry and a strawberry beer, which were all right, but kind of lackluster since my affinity for drinks has long vanished into my past of fun and hope and dreams and creativity. Hey. Maybe I’ll start drinking again to resurrect those qualities! That does … Continue reading

Rather shoot myself in the foot.

Dan and I came up with the very feasible idea of writing Joel Plaskett a letter asking him to perform in my backyard (should I ever get one) and sweetening the deal by inserting a “fiver” into the envelope. You’re invited, should this idea ever come to pass. I really like this “not being in school” part of my life. I could start to get used to it. And maybe I will, after next semester finishes. I’d like to never be in school again. Of … Continue reading

Happy Autumn!

Hello waste of time and taxpayers’ money minority-government from yesterday back again today, hello! Today I was wondering where this jerk, who always bought a lot of lottery and was always a dick to everyone he talked to at my store, had been lately. Well, it turns out, sometimes bad people die. Disorienting though, since he didn’t seem unhealthy, just rude and mean-spirited and self-absorbed and in love with spending money on the hope that he might one day actually win money. (To buy friends?) … Continue reading

UR DOIN IT RONG

Spent an unusually relaxing day in the sun at the family’s yesterday and got some colour (hopefully preventing that shaky old Jewish man who comes in to buy paper towels from heckling me about how ‘white’ I am). In lieu of this, today I got a bunch of errands and chores done and thought about just why I’m not taking some of my courses this semester and lightening the load for my final semester. (Other option is waiting until January til the ‘co-op semester’ is … Continue reading
