so i voted today.

and i am on chapter ten of my book. for whom the bell tolls by hemingway.

i went to the used book store and got eight books for $4.50. i even bought "the edible woman". i thought it only fair to give margaret atwood another chance since erin took my advice and picked up the fountainhead.

the books i got today are:

the edible woman - margaret atwood
emma - jane austen
heart of darkness - joseph conrad
lord of the flies - william golding
mansfield park - jane austen
the scarlett letter - nathaniel hawthorne
great expectations - charles dickens
david copperfield - charles dickens

i have a whole list of other books i intend to read this year. and it will probably take me longer than that to finish them all, but it's my new year's resolution to read more. and where better to start than the classics.

i feel violated. my car got broken into last night.... well it wasn't exactly broken into, since the car was unlocked. my roomy's kid went out to the car last night to grab the dvd i had rented for them, and forgot to lock it when he came back in the house.

all my cd's are gone.

my iggy, tom, jello, henry, bad brains, primus, marilyn, southern culture on the skids, agnostic front, and all the other stuff i had.... is gone.

this is a sad sad day, as anyone who has been in my car knows, i have around two hundred cd's.

sorry, had.

i hate assholes.

oh henry [25 Oct 2005|03:48pm]
so the rollins show in toronto on sunday was everything i had hoped it would be..... and more. he was funny, articulate and had on some really nice pants *grin*

his hair is a little more gray now, but i dig it. he talks extremely fast but i guess he has to. he kept me enthralled for about three hours. if he was a slow talker, we'd only get to hear a fraction of what he covers during the show.

when it was all over, we headed outside to wait for him to come out to the bus. there was a bit of a line and we were the last ones lined up. i kind of preferred it that way since we seemed to get the most time one on one with him.

i was hesitant about staying afterwards because i'm not the kind of girl to gush and giggle and make a big deal about meeting a celebrity. even the one i am obsessed with. i hate being a "fan girl".

so i developed the pictures i took during the show and not one turned out. no flash, so they all turned out blurry because i cannot hold a heavy camera still it seems. the pics gish took of me and henry after the show turned out brilliantly though.... even if i look a little red. i must admit i was blushing.

so without further adieu..... here is a few pics of me and my new boyfriend. *ahem* don't dump me D, you had to have known this post was going to happen. you're still my #1 guy, no worries.

excuse the washed out look in this pic. it was dark and gish was using the flash.

i just watched the absolute strangest, craziest, insane short film ever in existence.

i dare anyone to find a more insane film than "rubber johnny".

six minutes of absolute insanity. if you can find it, you need to watch it to understand what i'm talking about.

i've been awake since around eight this morning when my roomy's youngest was throwing a temper tantrum and was screaming at the top of her lungs.

can't sleep so you might as well dick around at the computer wasting time right?

i've been playing this csi game and it's completely geeky but it's fun. so besides that i've showered and dressed and am currently waiting for gish to call me so we can go have lunch at the chinese buffet place.

exactly one month until my trip to cuba. the trip is booked. my mom bought me a five piece luggage set, so all that is left to do is pack and wait for the day to come.

rollins on sunday.... the countdown has begun.

work tonight and tomorrow night....

i'm dying to get out and take more pictures. there's just never enough time to do all that you want to do.

camera fun [17 Oct 2005|07:34pm]
i've bought a couple of new toys for the nikon... some new filters. an orange and a blue. and oh how much fun i had taking pictures yesterday with gish. we were all around london scouting locations to test out the camera. first we went to an apple orchard, and then to one of the biggest cemetaries i've ever seen.

here are some pics... the first are taken with the orange filter...

work yesterday was busy but much better than the day before.

today i'm heading to london to hang out with gish, it's been a couple of weeks i think since we've hung out and now that i have the nikon, we're heading out looking for inspiration.

after breakfast at the del-mar of course.

anyhow, time to go.

a shitty day at work yesterday, and i'm hoping today is slightly better.

it can't be any worse i don't think.

we'll see.

a trip home a few days ago. i'll elaborate more on it later. i had a good time. my nephew is as cute and as bad as ever.

time to get ready for work.

so a few things have happened in the last couple of days since i've updated last. the basement was flooded wednesday while i was at work and so the floor in my room was soaking wet when i got home. apparently the sewage system is clogged, and when my roomate was doing a load of laundry, it had no where to drain and ended up draining all over the basement.

anyone want to go swimming?


luckily none of my stuff got ruined, mind you i haven't taken anything out from under my bed yet. i'm assuming that all is wet and wrecked.

my roomate's son had been using the wet vac and was sucking up all the water and we put the dehumidifier in there to dry it all up, but i don't think things will be back to normal for another couple of days.

so i'll go home on saturday and finish cleaning up the mess.

currently, i'm in toronto. D and i went out to dinner and a show last night with J and R who are getting married in cuba in november. i can't wait for that trip. anyhow, as a thank-you for being part of the wedding, J and R bought tickets to see les miserables for us. the show was pretty amazing. i'm not usually one for musicals, but you can't deny the talent these people have. the set design was well done, the lighting and costumes were great, and the singers were awesome.

tonight we're going out for sushi, and then going to see the corpse bride. i'm looking forward to seeing it. the last couple of times we've gone, the show has been sold out, so now that it's in the second week of showing, there should be more than enough tickets.

anyhow, today i'll be hanging out in D's apartment while he's at work. not much to do here, but i'll find something to occupy my time. i bought a magazine last night, some crossword puzzles, and there's always the play station. it will be a day of lounging around and doing nothing.

another thanksgiving will be spent at work. i think the last time i had thanksgiving off was three years ago. we decided to have a pot luck, because nothing will be open due to the holiday. no tim horton's, no cafeteria. the vending machines never work either.

oh well, time to lounge.

all is well that ends well. after being hysterical for a little while, i got my way and now have the days off i need for my vacation. i guess it's true what they say in that the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

L's birthday today, so we went shopping. i bought a couple of new sweaters and she bought some pants and a couple of tops.

i love having excuses to go shopping. i've been really behaving myself and not been spending a lot of money on things i don't need, but every once in awhile, you have to treat yourself for good behaviour.

hilarity last night. D rolled an extra large joint and the three of us were going to go out in the front porch so L and D could smoke it, except L's daughter E came running down the stairs and opened the door catching us. she started throwing a hissy fit and was crying because she thought her mom was smoking cigarettes. this fit carried on for a good couple of hours until me and D were exausted and went downstairs to the basement to sleep.

i am always reminded why i don't have children.

this is one of the reasons why. if i want to smoke, i'll smoke. and i don't have to listen to kids carry on and cry and stomp their feet in order to get me to stop. L doesn't smoke, she was just going to have some of D's joint in celebration of turning the ripe old age of 33.

long story short, she didn't get to, and ended up going to bed instead.

work tomorrow. relaxing tonight. later.

a night spent at home instead of a crowded dance club. i can't say i'm disappointed, i'm not one to really go out and party anymore.

i'm happier with a rented movie or a book.

we're leaving shortly to get something to eat, then heading to the comic book store. ya ya, we're geeks. and you're jealous. so whatever.

lenore 12 is out. and soon to be mine. as long as they're not sold out. although i can't really imagine too many people around here know about lenore, or dirge for that matter.

many text messages from gish and erin this morning. and a couple last night but i didn't see those until today. crazy girls having fun. i'll just sit at my computer, push up my glasses, scratch myself and read my comics.

i'm comfortable here.

no matter how much of a geek i am.

i'm feeling a little better today. i'm not so angry and pissed off, i'm able to breath a little easier. i still have hardly any energy but i'm sure i'm on the way to getting better.

when i get sick, which isn't too often, it takes me a long time to get over it.

work tonight. scrambling tomorrow to finish up shopping for birthday presents. or today, now that i've talked to gish and she wants to tag along. i'm not up for lunch, i don't think i could hack it. no appetite man.

anyhow, i should get showered and dressed.

i am in distress.

that's right. i'm having a mild panic attack at the moment, but i can't give into it, because i'm at work. i can't get ahold of D because he has his phone off the hook, i'm sick, and struggling to make it through my shift, and i just looked at my schedule and the cocksuckers in staffing have me booked for the next seven weekends. how do they get away with it? because they're not all total weekends. they might as well be though when they book me for a saturday night.

how the fuck do i go to toronto when i'm working the middle of the weekend? i don't.

not only did they fuck up my weekends, they have me scheduled the night before the day i requested off, and they have me scheduled the day i'm supposed to be leaving for my trip to cuba.

i am not having a good night, and i'm ready to break down. or break my foot off in someone's ass.

i have a cold, not allergies like i originally thought. i found out that my roomate's kids were sick with a cold this weekend and that would explain why i have itchy, watery eyes, and why my nose is stuffy and i'm coughing.

it's kicking my ass. this afternoon i've been feeling quite tired and unenergetic, and my goddammed nose won't stop running.

so i'm in my room, stocked up with dvd's and some cold medication. i've changed into my pj's, and i don't plan to surface until i feel a little better.

i had lunch with gish and L today, and i ate even though i wasn't really hungry. i more or less went for the social interaction. oh, and the coffee.

work this week won't be so horrid. i work tomorrow night, then thursday night and back on days on sunday. i like it when i have days off in between, rather than all at once.

it makes it more bareable.

anyhow, i'm going to go get under the covers and batten down for the night.

today at work was relatively painless, if you don't count the period cramps i suffered through.

yes, i'm talking about my period and cramps and how it makes me grouchy and impatient. not so much with my patients, but with my friends and D.

last night i pretty much bit his head off for not calling me fast enough, and then i cut the conversation short and said that i was pms'ing, and i was tired and didn't want to talk. so we hung up.

however men put up with us women when we're like this, i'll never know. a big kudos to you men though for enduring it.

it's not such a picnic going through it though i must admit.

the cramps alone are enough to make me want a hysterectomy. it's not like i want kids anyhow. actually, a coworker brought her newborn in for everyone to see and all the girls were oohhhing and awwwing over him, and i just looked at him and shivered like he was the plague or something. i don't want to come off as a kid hater, but i just can't fathom having one of them.

i love my nephew to death, but at the end of the day, he's at home with his mom. not me.

anyhow, i'm going to go watch a documentary i just finished downloading then i'm heading to bed.

yesterday was spent in the states. me and L decided to take a day trip to niagara falls, ny for something to do. besides actually seeing the falls and going to an outlet mall, there wasn't much to see besides hundreds (and i'm not exaggerating here) of motels and variety stores.

i ended up getting a few gifts for family for christmas. i got my sister and her boyfriend each a fossil watch, and i got an outfit for my nephew.

today i bought a new cell phone and got a free mp3 player, so i'll put that away to give someone for christmas as well.

i know it's only september, but i like to get christmas shopping over and done with as soon as possible.

so for those of you on my blurty list that have my old cell number, email me and i'll give you the new one. i think i'm going to go read. i haven't done that in a little while.

i'm am sitting at my desk, having a coffee and waiting for my turn to shower.

i am procrastinating getting ready because sometimes it just feels good to sit in your pj's at 11 in the morning. knowing you have a day off and not having any schedule to follow. feels pretty good.

me and L may go to target tomorrow in the states. i've never been to a target, and i'm not sure if i'd need anything from there, but what the hell. it's a road trip.

i guess the big question of the day is: do i wear my brown slacks or blue ones? i love shopping at value village and finding men's old work pants that are in near perfect condition. why buy dickies for almost $70 when you can have almost the same thing from VV that costs $5?

well i guess not everyone likes the idea of wearing used clothes, but come on, that's what a washing machine is for.

anyhow, i should go see if it's my turn yet to shower. i think gish is bringing coffee in about half an hour.

this has been an irradic post with not one subject relating to the next, but sometimes, that's how my thought process goes.

and plus, i haven't updated in about a week and had to submit something before erin and gish decide to banish me from their friend's list.
