So yesterday I took my shoes out to Jubilations Dinner Theater with a few co-workers to celebrate one the their birthdays. They're all older than me, like, the closest one is 25 years older than me. But it's all ok because they're just as crazy as me. And they kept me out until 3:30am, those old chicks know how to party let me tell you.
I work capri pants with my beloved heels and they were all suprised that I owned heels, and I laughed at them. Clearly, they know nothing about me. It's true that I only own 2 pairs of heels, but I still love them, my prized shoes basically. I think they thought I would show up in runners, like a tomboy kinda chick. Well, I guess that image of me is over.
So anyway, we went to a dinner theater, and one of the actors was supremely cute, so it was a good night all in all. Although today I am quite tired and I do have to get up at 4:30am to go to work with all these crazy ladies.
P.S. I am getting this phone for free If you are a Rogers customer and also a blogger, then email me and I will hook you up with the email addy to get the phone
#1 - how many of you have recieved the "i'm giving away cell phones to bloggers" email? what is that about?
#2 - when i came home from BC there was a letter in my mailbox addressed to my exboyfriend's family - well, their names followed by my address. it was a sympathy card (we could see through the envelope). my mom delievered it to them today and found out that the card came from their old neighbours when they used to live in another town. people i have never heard of and probably have never heard of me, sending a card to my address. weird.
OK wait. there's a third thing
#3 - I came home to find Matt Good has a new demo = If I Was a Tidal Wave. *le sigh* What a great thing to come home too.
Ok so I'm back from BC. It was a pretty good trip. Relaxing. I spent most of my time either shopping in the 3 stores available or at the pool soaking up the rays and swimming a zillion laps. Seriously, swimming is fun.
We played board games and watched Young and the Restless all together, because that show is awesome.
I've discovered the formula for absolute hair control. It's weird herbal shampoo + a large ammount of chlorine from a pool + sleeping on it wet = excellent hair (meaning hair that feels like cement and will stay in any way that you mush it on your head because it's just that strange)
I'm sleepy, so here are some pictures of the mini golf course that I love, there are more on my flickr site, enjoy
I'm going on vacation tomorrow morning, well, today morning I suppose. I picked like 10 books to take on my 4 day vacation and now they won't fit in my suitcase because who the fuck takes 10 books for 4 days, it's retarded. How many times can you read Harry Potter anyway?
So anyway, I'll be gone for 4 days or so, going to BC is the plan. Maybe do some hiking, maybe some swimming, maybe even some tennis, I don't know if there will be enough time. What I do know is that there will be a large amount of minigolf being played.
So my brother bought me a present, and he got one for himself as well, but it was nice of him to do. In anycase, it's awesome, so I thought I would make a video of it and put it on here because that is just the kind of girl I am.
Here is is, the Dwight Schrute Bobble-head:
We always watch the Office together, so now we have matching bobbleheads. hehe, cute.
It's a friggen miracle, and what a game. They won in shoot out. Talk about suspense.
We got Baba new flooring and new furniture, which is red and it's awesome. I don't like red but I'm in love with the living room now because it looks so good. And I think I want to buy the house when she moves out.
Do you ever wish that you could be completely honest?
with yourself, or even with other people?
I try to be honest, but there are some things that I can't help but hold on to. I'm scared of being judged, no matter how much I say what other people think doesn't matter, to me it kind of does, just a little bit. Not enough to change me, but enough to admit that I don't admit everything to everyone.
I got my stereo back.
That needs explanation.
When I was 16 I got the most amazing stereo for my birthday, I picked it out. In the store my dad and I had Beautiful Midnight at full volume, to see what it would sound like.
Anyway, the stereo broke after 6 years of constant use, and the CD's wouldn't read.
Today, it is back from the repair shop, I've given up the new stereo that I got so that I could have this old one, the sound is just so amazing I can't believe it. I'm in an oblivion of joy with this thing. I'm playing Beautiful Midnight as a tribute to the first CD ever played on it.
My dad was on the deck and he could hear it outside, and he said that he wished I was playing Apparitions. He knows it's not on the album, but it's his favorite Matt Good song I believe.
We are getting new flooring
I can't stop looking at this stereo and thinking that I used to talk on the phone with Heather's like Sunday playing in the background and i remember a certain ex-boyfriend who would point out that it was playing
I wouldn't care, because I was focused on him, I guess he wasn't focused on me.
I was never beautiful, I was cute. Never, in my life have I been beautiful.
Today at work I was told a story about this dog that had to be shot because it was attacked by a porcupine and it had like 300 needles in him, in his eyes and everything.
Then when I got home I learned that the girl who was in that big accident on Ellerslie road and 50th street is the sister of my ex-boyfriend that I dated for 4 years. She graduated high school with my brother, so that's how I found out about it. And I must say, I'm in complete shock.
You never think that these things happen to people that you know. I'm a lot more upset by this than I ever thought that I would be, not that I expected this situation, but in general I suppose.
I'm sad for him, and for his family. I can't even imagine how they must feel. He was an amazing brother to her, the kind of brother that people wish for.
In me it opens up a lot of regret, about how things have turned out, and how I imagined they would turn out. I know that things don't always turn out as planned, but I've just strayed so far off the course I imagined that it's like some other alternate reality or something.
Damn introspection caused by major tragedy.
I'm taking my dog for a haircut tomorrow. Should be a good time.
And the tradition continues. Every 12 years team Italy makes it to the World Cup finals, and this year is no different.
Oh what a game what a game. Back and forth until the second overtime period. Where a beautiful, and I mean gorgeous shot is taken by Fabio Grosso. And finally, a score. Fuck, that was a nice shot. It should be called "Bend it like Grosso, not like Beckham". But maybe that's just me.
Then, for icing on the cake, Alessandro del Piero scores another goal.
