More Christmas'

I'm off today for my second Christmas. I won't bother writing a poem this time. Both this year have felt very rushed as I wrap and shop at the last minute. It makes me wish my life was a little more organized. A lot of things are really complicated and confusing right now (and that is all I'm going to say about him.)

Merry Christmas

I have presents still to get, and presents still to give
Shopping still to do, and traditions still to live.
Merry Christmas to all and have a great year
I hope this season brings you lots of joy and some cheer.
(Oh such a bad little poem, but written in less then 2 minutes since I'm heading off to Si and Dan's for more Christmas stuff. I love winter and Christmas is such a great holiday. Everyone have a good one!!!)

Hungover on Horseback

After a great night at the bar I had to wake up early to head to the barn to see our family friends new horse. My mom has been riding him for a while now and takes lessons on him on Saturdays. This isn't a picture of him, but he is very similar. This breed is known as Icelandic and they are very short and get really fuzzy in the winter. I think they look like My Little Pony's. They are considered Horses though not Ponies, despite how tiny they are. I took a lesson on him and he is very much the dream horse for any 5 year old little girl who asks Santa for "A Pony".

Longest Night

Last night was the longest night of the year, literally. Just like June 21st, my Dad's birthday, is the longest day of the year. I spent most of last night driving back from Tremblant and then the rest passed out on a mattress in my old room. My old room is at least no longer a recording studio, it is now My Little Brother Mike's leisure room, TV and game consoles etc.

Going Going Gone

Ok, Dad and Ter just showed up and we are taking my laptop into Future Shop to get cleaned. I will be essentially off the grid for a while. Have a good time this Holidays.

Dirty Bunny

Everything my bunny does is adorable! The thing eats its own poo, and is cute while it does it. Mind you lately I have been fairly lazy about keeping the cage clean, so the poo has piled up. I don't want him to get sick, or my roommates to evict me, so I'm going to change the the shavings. He deserves it, he is perfect in every little bunny way.

Now that my exams are over I can actually read fun books. Books that aren't hundreds of years old, amazing works of literary genius, or by great Canadian writers. I was running late for work today and knew that since I was closing I would need something to amuse myself with during the down time. Not wanting to bring my laptop, or buy a new magazine, I went looking for something good to read. My New Roommate is gone for the weekend with her boyfriend, The Boy Roommate, so I snuck into her room and borrowed a book. It was an interesting combination of single girl chick-lit and high school loser angst, an edgier Judy Blume. I just devoured it. I read all through my shift and then when I got home tonight, read it in bed. I just finished it and as you can see from the time stamp on this post it is quite late. I hope to wake up early enough tomorrow to pick up the sequel from the library in the morning before I go to work. Teri is also bringing my the newest Harry Potter to read over the break. Reading for pleasure, pure perfection.

Yesterday Today Tomorrow

If you had to relive yesterday, would you do anything differently? I don't think I would, manly because I try to live with out regrets and wishing I had changed things. Also right now I feel like my life is pretty hopeless, boring, pathetic, depression and cyclic.
What can I get for you today?
6" or footlong?
On which bread?
White, Swiss, or Cheddar cheese?
Would you like that toasted?
And what vegetables can I get for you?
Would you like the Sweet Onion that goes with that?
Any other sauce?
Salt and Pepper?
This good?
Would you like it for here or to go?
As a combo?
Chips or cookies?
A drink from the fridge or the fountain?
Its the same price
$10.24 please.
From $20, your change is $9.76
Would you like a receipt?
Thank you, have a good day

Finished Exams

I'm done my exams for this semester. Some went better then expected, some went worse, some were easier then I thought they would be, some were harder. I have no regrets, as always I will just learn from it and try things a little differently next time. I hope I did well and that when the marks come back I'm happy.

Holiday Mood

With exams nearly over and Christmas coming soon, this little site put me even more into the mood. I love the song, it is my favorite carol, although I say that about a lot of them.

Wednesday, 13 December 2006


I have my first exam today, and I can honestly say I don't feel ready. After tonight's exam it is just one after another for a while. After BritLit tonight I'm heading down to Kristin's to study for Mass Comm which is tomorrow. Hopefully we will keep each other awake and focused, not distracted and sleepy.

Favorite Family Guy

This is my favorite Family Guy moment of all time!!!!!


I can love both fair and brown,
He whom abundance melts, and he whom want betrays,
He who loves loneness best, and he who masks and plays,
He whom the country formed, and whom the town,
He who believes, and he who tries,
He who weeps with spongy eyes,
And he who is dry cork, and never cries;
I can love him, and him, and you, and you,
I can love any, so he be not true.
(*The first stanza of "The Indifferent" by John Donne, adjusted for gender*)

Danger Danger

Do not, I repeat do not, go to this site if you are in exams. It has all kinds of shows and movies that are free and broadband. This means no commercials, and you don't need to download anything. It is addictive though, and eats away at your time, so don't go there if you should be doing something else, like studying.

Carleton Karma

Today I got some good Carleton karma. After visiting Kristin for her birthday I hopped on the bus. I had planned to head to campus to watch a lecture in the viewing room. I woke up very early this morning, unable to sleep because I was so worried about exams and how slow my studying was going. I made a vow to myself to start going to campus and watching the lectures I need to catch up on today after the visit with the Birthday Girl. I make these plans all the time but tend not to follow through with them. I was sure that I would be leaving the missed lectures for the last minute, fail my exams, and end up on the street. Even though I got on the #7 bus, which goes right passed my house, I went to school. It took everything I had to stay on that bus and get to campus. I just kept repeating to myself, "you have to watch those lectures, you have to watch those lectures". Well I made it, I'm sitting in the viewing room and I'm half way through one. I was looking for another piece of paper to write notes on when I found the 10 pages of notes that I had lost!!! I feel great, I also have fewer lectures to watch then I thought I needed. I may actually be back on track with my studying.

My Cool Boss brought over his new puppy last night. It was the tiniest, cutest thing ever. Chopper is about the size of half a loaf of bread and just as addictive. He just licked and nibbled me while making adorable puppy noises. I was won over, especially because he is a baby Boston Terrier which is normally not one of my preferred dogs. Trust me though, this little guy was heaven on four legs.

Tuesday, 5 December 2006


The plan failed. My room is now cleaner, but not finished. Studying is going slowly and I just figured out that I have over 8 hours of lectures to watch before Monday. I also have lost some notes too which is really bugging me. Thank goodness they are notes I used to write an essay so I know the material well enough to go without them. My exams are all in a row and that makes it very difficult to study for Dec. 14, 15, and 16.

The Plan

Ok, it is late at night, and I had a can of pop, Diet MC Cola to be exact. The plan is to stay up and completely clean my room so I can start fresh and study tomorrow. I have a bag of chips to keep me company and motivated. I won't post pictures this time, but trust me, tomorrow morning my room will be beautiful!

Bad Dreams

Last night I had so many bad dreams. When you wake up after a night like that it is so hard not to let it affect your day. In one dream, Binx died, so I have spent serious time this morning loving and petting her. In another, I was living back home and everyone was ignoring me. My family, O-Town Friends, P-Dot friends, Roommates, everyone was just living in my neighbourhood and completely ignoring me. When I walked outside they would move to the other side of the street. If I ran up to talk to them, they disappeared. I just spent the whole dream crying, and now I'm all sad.

Studio 60

I have seen Studio 60 advertised and written about quite a bit, but I had yet to catch an episode. I discovered a few days ago that I can watch it (and a number of other shows) on CTV Online. There are very few commercials and it is broadband, not download. I have gradually caught up and watched it on TV tonight for the first time. I hope that I contributed to their success tonight and that they continue to stay on the air. It really is a smart show, very very good.

'Tis The Season

I had my first advent calender chocolate and it is snowing. I was so excited about December 1st that I knocked on my New Roommate's door at midnight and we made an even out of opening the little calender window. Of course I have a Disney Princess one, and the chocolate is way better then I remember, not bad for $1.99.
