today was highly interesting! we went to visit uncle nick and have a look at the latest in the renovations on his house. then we went to a chinese buffet for lunch and drove along the canals in the holland marsh. it was really nice until grammy and nick got out of his car (which was in the lead) and came back to talk to us and put grammy in mom and dad's car so we could go to the badawi's for dinner and nick could go home (bear and i were in stuart's car). grammy got out and locked her door....nick's keys were still in the car. this, of course, made nick quite upset. it also eventually proved to all of us for absolute certain that my dad is insane. for some completely unknown reason, where as everyone else's idea was phone caa and have them break in for nick, dad's idea was to try his car keys in nick's door....and they worked! so dad unlocked nick's car w/ the keys that are supposed to unlock mom's civic door...which, incidentally, also drive dad's car. no one's quite sure why THAT of all things was the first thing that came to mind. it certainly wouldn't have occurred to anyone else in a million years, but it worked, so whatever.

i'm not scheduling ANYTHING for the next 2 weeks! maybe i should make it a ny resolution not to schedule but to delegate! *sigh* lost track of days and only just realized that tomorrow's tues AND the 23rd. we're supposed to visit aunt pat (who aparently has a cancerous tumour *sob*) and derek tomorrow and clean the house before mom gets home and i'm still not entirely sure who's showing up to sing. i hope mom got enough spaghetti and sauce to feed everyone. i think i'm cooking (everyone beware!)
well, see you all tomorrow.
btw, best of luck to c tomorrow.....*crosses fingers* don't get deported

spend the whole day shopping w/ sonya and went for pi's lunch/dinner break :)
saw phil at lunch and he seems to be doing as well as phil ever is. we did some shopping and, as usual, got nothing done other than getting me tired
played trivial persuit w/ bear, aesh, and kc at sola
got up disgustingly early....anyone notice that this is backwards? oh well
now i'm completely exhausted and going to bed early.....hopefully before 12
not too much shopping left *cheer*
well, i'm not officially home
at my parent's house and everything
*sigh* i think it's good to be back
has everyone seen my sister lately? *worried*
oh well, we'll see what i can do there :S
had a wonderful weekend (thanks love) finally beginning to feel like me again...been a while....

had the scare of my life tonight
smitty said he guessed i was back in london for the exam
i said no, i was in toronto
he said, but we have an exam tomorrow
made him phone the info desk
turns out he was wrong....he had a bit of a break down
i think he's ok, but there's nothing i can do from here regardless
so the crew will re-assess after the break and see what we can do. *sigh* why does everyone seem to think i'm some sort of weird psychiatrist?!

i am about to do the unprecidented and blog twice in 1 day!!!!!!! *shock and amazement*
i have an announcement to make: *clears throat*
i am making the switch from electric cars to homing pigeons.
thank you
that is all
to make ppl quite...and 'cause it's dec i am again *sigh*
you know this is silly, i talk to you all every day! all day sometimes! it's not as if you're not all caught up!
oh well
i just got back from grammy's having done NO work and now i've got 2 essays to do and i'm going to be stressed out until friday...when i'll hopefully have written 2 essays and an exam and be able to go home!
grammy's was part 'cuase i didn't do any work.
grammy meant it about the lobster. we had entire lobsters 2 nights in a row. snow crab legs the other 2, and veil the last. kippers every day for breakfast, baked brie, smokes salmon, asparagus w/ every meal, escargot, mussles, smoked haddock, home made mince meat tarts, xmas cake, egg nogg, chocolate...lots of chocolate....i know i'm forgetting something...oh well, you get the idea.
we watched movies too :) lawrence of arabia (2 tapes), dr. zhivago (2 tapes), all the king's men, the red shoes, key largo, a room with a view, gone with the wind (2 tapes), napoleon (2 tapes)...i think that's it, but i'm not entirely sure. i have a list here somewhere.......
well, it was a great weekend but i'm really glad to be back, i missed you all sooooooooo much!!! *sigh* home soon!

there...happy? *grin*

well, it's 2 pm and i've now been up for 9 hrs. so i feel like it's about dinner time. time to be winding down certainly...*sigh* stupid new pl (which is the equivalant of the new vr in toronto). it was a 6.15 am call 'cause they didn't know when we'd go on air. we weren't on air until 8. we did 2 sets of 4 mins each. i got home at about 1/4 to 9 and had to leave for class at 10. someone want to tell me if i had breakfast today? i can't remember and i feel like having dinner now. yay jetlag! :( i'd prefer to have at least been somewhere exciting to be 4 hrs off! where could i go that has a 4 hr time difference? i should take a vacation while i don't have to get used to a new timezone!

ii, they weren't filming at your photo reh were they? trust me, (seeing as i was right about the photos) ppl filming is WORSE!!! they've got BIG cameras and they like to get in your face. you can't tell where they're aiming the thing either :P

I HATE BELL!!!!!!! stupid phone company *grumble grumble grumble*
who ever heard of a 2 min lag on highspeed? what kind of high speed is that?

Tuesday, October 14, 2003

well tg was certainly interesting. got off to a rocky start. grandma's feeling better, but her hemoglobin count is still down which means there's still internal bleeding so she's staying in hospital probably 'till wed at least. she's in the university h though so i can visit b/w classes. dinner at my place was good. decided lack of comments from everyone except nick which was a welcome surprise...and even nick wasn't that bad. 21 for dinner is a bit squishy in my house, but we've done worse. breakfast sun was good too...we really need to find a breakfast place that's actually open for breakfast (what a thought!) church was alright but someone needs to get robert an editor....or a speach writer....or let ted preach 'cause robert certainly shouldn't. he should just admit defeat and start his sermons once upon a time *sigh* sunday dinner was great too...i think i'm going to have to admit defeat and say that i enjoy meeting ppl :) monday desert, always a good thing...sandy can you mail that recipe to derek when you get around to typing it? if you can't read my writing tell me and i'll see if i can figure it out. i still haven't gotten a phone bill and it's worrying me....has anyone noticed that i'm feeling REALLY talkative today? sandy, is that a good sign or not? anyway, mon desert...*yay* also ha phi, you like nurtz afterall...i know i spelled it differently on your comments, sandy, but it's all made up, it doesn't have a proper spelling. ...note, this does not count as a shhhh.... will hopefully remember to look at the opera schedule for nov/dec and see when i'm likely to be in TO again. will let everyone who reads this know is a more immediate way...probably....hope you all get set up w/ mics and all asap :) yay...*small panic about the phone bill moment* ok, now i'm rambling.....i'm going to stop now

anyone know who invented beyond 20/20?
for that matter, who invented whatever it is that won't let me save anything to my computer from an internet link?
bets on how long it will take the gov't documents librarian to fix the software and email me back? the project's basically due at the end of the week *sigh*
