I'm not sure if this is open to the public or not (seeing as the admission charge is $0.00 i assume it is.
Nonetheless,
To anyone in Ottawa who reads this, I recommend going to this. It may seem silly, like who cares about trees, but i feel that this would be a good talk to go to. I wish i could go but alas.


On Wednesday, March 30, at 5:00 p.m., the OAIA is hosting a talk by Jeffrey Monty, President of the Tree Canada Foundation, entitled "Healthy Trees - Healthy Canadians: The Health Benefits of Urban Silviculture".

Location: downstairs at the Clocktower pub, 575 Bank Street (just south of the Queensway).

Charge: Admission is free.

Refreshments: It's a cash bar. Pub fare may also be bought on site (5-7 is happy hour and appetizers are half price).

This event is one in OAIA's series of "pub socials". They provide opportunities for you to hear interesting speakers, meet members of OAIA's executive in an informal setting, renew old friendships, meet and network with practitioners and scholars in your field, and learn more about your organization and its future plans.

The OAIA promotes innovation and best practice in impact assessment among all stakeholders


John Dauvergne,
President Ontario Association for Impact Assessment

i hate pesticides
not because they're supposed to give you cancer or kill because they really don't
because i have two papers and a midterm on that subject. i really know more than i ever wanted to know about integrated pest management than i wanted to and Bacillus sphaericus (or Bs for short....how appropriate).

on a better note...i made scones this morning. they're a little bland but decent all the same....definately needs more sugar.

there's also this bustier sale on at zeller's ($10 each). Zeller's of all places. who cares though. i want to use it as a pattern so i can make a top to wear outside of my room haha.

i could really go for some pure being right about now.

-Promise

What would you say if I asked you not to go
To forget everyone, forget everything and start over with me
Would you take my hand and never let me go
Promise me you'll never let me go

And now the stars aren't out tonight,
But neither are we to look up at them
Why does hello feel like goodbye?
These memories can't replace,
These wishes I wished and dreams I chased
Take this broken heart and make it right

I feel like I lost everything when you're gone
Left remembering what it's like to have you here with me
I thought you should know,
You're not making this easy

I never thought I'd be the one to say
Please don't, well please don't leave me

I feel like I lost everything when you're gone
Left remembering what it's like to have you here with me
I thought you should know,
You're not making this easy

You're not making this easy (easy, easy, easy...)

Take my hand and never let me go,
Take my hand and never let me go,
Promise me...
You'll never let go
You'll never let go
You'll never let go
You'll never let go
Make this last forever

I feel like I lost everything when you're gone
Left remembering what it's like to have you here with me
I thought you should know, you're not making this easy

You're not making this easy
You're not making this easy
You're not making this easy
You're not making this easy

I'll fall asleep tonight, 'cause that brings me closer to you

so as i'm taking a break from studying, i start to think that maybe i'll start a university ski team. as i'm looking around for information about other uni. teams, master's races, and looking at the good ol' outaouis sites i discover that there IS actually a team here. how in the hell? how come it's not advertised ANYWHERE? unless it's all a big hoax. i emailed them about next season.
i went to the old cascades site. omy, it made me miss skiing and racing even more. pat and steph are coaches now, and all the little people have grown up. two of them are on NCO now. i feel like such an old person. AH i can't believe i'm not going skiing at all this year. it sucks big monkeys.

-Brand New Colony

I'll be the grapes fermented,
Bottled and served with the table set in my finest suit
Like a perfect gentlemen
I'll be the fire escape that's bolted to the ancient brick
Where you will sit and contemplate your day

I'll be the waterwings that save you if you start drowning
In an open tab when your judgement's on the brink
I'll be the phonograph that plays your favorite
Albums back as your lying there drifting off to sleep...
I'll be the platform shoes and undo what heredity's done to you...
You won't have to strain to look into my eyes
I'll be your winter coat buttoned and zippedstraight to the throat
With the collar up so you won't catch a cold

I want to take you far from the cynics int his town
And kiss you on the mouth
We'll cut out bodies free from the tethers of this scene,
Start a brand new colony
Where everything will change,
We'll give ourselves new names (identities erased)
The sun will heat the grounds
Under our bare feet in this brand new colony
Everything will change, oOo oOo...

this song has the cutest little noises throughout, it reminds me of a video game. makes me want to dance like a robot

reading week is over and it makes me sad. no more lying around with my love and doing nothing but cooking good food and drinking cheap wine (at least we felt sophisticated). i decided that if my university degree falls through i'm going to become a somalier .: why not :.

it's crazy, after less than a day i was missing him like crazy not unlike that really bad boy band pop song from back in the day but i can't remember their name to save my life. but i guess now everything is back into the groove. into the groove of hell. and instead of tackling any of the work i'm thinking about when i should eat my wierd left over dinner i made last night...now? or later?.....hmmm.

i started to fill out my application for exchange tonight but stopped because i needed references from people from the university. maybe i'll use Rob the TA. does he count? i dont' know who else i'd use.
I really hope that i get accepted despite the feelings that other people have. it's such a great opportunity. why wouldn't you want to? i mean this was one of the reasons i went here was so i could go somewhere else....interesting how that worked out.
i just realised that i'm not going to home for about another year and a half. how wierd is that?

i bought the tackiest jacket ever yesterday at this second hand store near my house. it's silver blue and white brocade. think....a nice chesterfield from the 70's. perhaps to the enviro sci semi-formal....now if i could only get a date....shifty eyes. it makes my closet look more interesting at least if i never end up wearing it.
my mum's bringing up my sewing machine when she comes down next week. so i'll have another distraction. at least i won't be glued to this screen for stupid amounts of time.

so it's been a really long time since i've set foot 'round these here parts.

we celebrated new years on saturday night at the keg. it was a decent turn out but we left anyway after the free champagne which may not have been worth it though. of all places we went to the palace. it's always pretty interesting there. there was this crazy girl trying to beat up some guy for god knows what reason. ken and i watched for a bit and laughed. it was some kind of theme night and they were giving out gold dildos to the girl who danced the worst. and by worst it really met the most like a stripper.



this has been the first time i've had the house all to myself since i've been back. so i got out my bass and finally got a chance to use my precious amp. too bad i still suck. there's a guy in my enviro lab who plays, maybe i'll ask him for lessons.....ha or not.

  i would be angry about all this stupid shit but it's definately not worth any effort what so ever. you could at least have the balls to leave your fucking name because it's extremely obvious who you are. if you hate a person as much as you claim why concern yourself with their life? i dont' give 2 shits about you or anything you say. why would i care about a shallow, poor excuse for a person? so just go on smiling and playing your useless mind games with other people. i would just prefer if you left me alone so i would never have to deal with you again? okay? great thanks.

  happy lallowe'en
the festivities were last night because well... 8:30's on monday morning are not enjoyable after celebrating anything. we went to the keg but there was NO one there. it was too depressing so we went downtown to trappers. well...not at first. they wouldn't let us in because it was too busy, but becca made nice with the bouncer and he let us upstairs. while we were waiting for the bus downtown becca and i mysteriously ended up on the ground lying beside each other, and neither of us could figure out what happened. we sat next to the imfamous travolta from last year. my goodness it was hilarious.
for being a 1970's secretary i was mistaken for a french made, a school girl, and something else i can't remember. i was determined not to look like i was wearing what a typical girl would wear and look what happened. you would not believe how many times i was attacked by some sort of winged thing on a girl.
all in all a pretty good night.

i've decided that i'm going to stay with this journal. i like the layout too much. it's aesthetically pleasing. yup yup.

anyway.

i'm listening to lenny kravitz for god knows what reason. his love songs pulled at my heart strings. probably because i'm a sucker for love songs. but then it got me thinking about everything. and blah blah blah. we all know what happens when you over analyze trivial things. overall, i'm becoming farther for him but closer to other. closer strictly on a platonic level. but that doesn't mean great conversation can't come out of it. i'm having better conversation with people that i never really talked to before than the person i want to have great conversation with. it's f'd yo.

tomorrow is chem lab. lol. one of the hi-lights of the week. LOL. more wierd chatting with rob the creeepy t.a. it went over the top last week when he patted my on my side. *shudder*. nonetheless he makes lab time that much more interesting.

goodnight all.
