Bloody hell, I am tired of being sick! Today was the first time in 2 weeks that I've felt like eating. Yesterday and today are also the only days I've taken off work. I thought I was in the clear, but all of a sudden I woke up without any energy whatsoever. After a day and a half spent lying on the sofa...

Wow, look at me acutally updating my blog more than once a season!

First week back to work was survived. The highlight was the launch of our new LGBT employee resource group. We had a launch party at MoneyPennies and everything! For those of you who are straight, not from Calgary, or both: MoneyPennies is a dyke bar. And by that I mean the endearing...

I must admit, I love the idea of fleeing to the other side of the world. I just don't see it in my cards this year. I have one thing I need to do before I get on to all the other things I want out of my life, and if I try to start anything else right now (such as a new life in Ultimate Winter) I'll fail quite succinctly.

I just sent an e-mail to my grandfather, who is dying much faster than most of us. I thought he might like to see my vacation photos. This is probably the time in his life when he most needs to hear from the people who love him and I find myself without anything to say. It seems crass to chatter on about work, the weather...

Just show that you care about him... That is all you can do. The emailing of pictures is a great thing, even if you don't believe it is a enough. smile

Have a great day.

Three weeks in Thailand was the best idea I ever had! How have I let myself go this long without a vacation? After one week, I was contemplating moving there and only going home briefly to pack my things. After two weeks, I was ready to leave all my stuff at home and just never go back at all.

Lotus flowers at the grand temple...

Eeeeeeee! I'm so happy you guys went! (and too jealous for words that I didn't get to go too...)


I miss you insanely. You should call me one day soon.

Last week, a good friend loaned me a huge stack of books from some university Clit Lit course she's taking and I've been completely consumed by them ever since. Top of the list is a book called 'Zami: A Different Spelling of My Name' (Audre Lourde) I know, I know. I cringed at the title too. I hate coming of age stories with...

What is there to say about today? Neal Stephenson has said it already in Zodiac, when the lead character weighs the pros/cons of living a double life:

'"Do those moments of satisfaction I get as Spiderman make up for all the crap I have to take as Peter Parker?" In my case, the answer is yes.'

That pretty much sums it up for me...

So, tomorrow, I head down to the passport office with my application. It'l be the first concrete thing I do to plan for Thailand (money saved not included). I still don't quite believe I'm going, but maybe this will make it sink in. In fact, I think it's almost time to start my official countdown.

Lots of new things in the...

The current newest set on SG, from the lovely 'Prussia', is making me flash back to high school. Half way through one semester, our resident blonde cheerleader raised her hand in Social Studies class and said "Um, ex-CUUSE me, but it's, like, called RUSSIA!".

It's been years, and I'm still laughing my ass off. biggrin
zenfish:
I'm glad I don't remember anyone that stupid from high school, albeit I'm sure if given enough time I could.

Any adventures lately?
tilpacer:
Yes, that is quite humourous. biggrin Silly kids think they know everything. biggrin

Have a great day! biggrin

Happy Christmas, all!

I think it may just have been the perfect Christmas.

This year was the year of two Christmases for me: the 24th was Christmas with my favorite people, and the 25th was Christmas with my immediate family. My embarassing secret is that I turn into a hyperactive five-year old at Christmas. I try not to, but there's just no stopping it...

Those photos shed some light on the freaky-deakiness of the whole place. It was a fine line of satisfying curiosity and learning a bit too much about the crazy old farmer who "out lived" the rest of the family. The air was thick, heavy and very quiet. It reminded me most of catacombs. I didn't really want to dig too deep. Apparently the crazy-farmer out buildings are due for the torch prior to spring. Sleep well, I didn't even mention the cellar wink

Ya I am trying to find where they are selling the rest of the bunch, and I know they are going to come out with a vehicle pack with figures too.

And yes, I'll totally get some of those too.

Lately I just love sleeping in till way to late.

mmm.

Gimpy for Christmas, that's me.

First thing this morning, knee-deep in powder, I discovered rather loudly and indignatly that falling down hurts. As a devout bookworm and daughter of delicate academics, I've only recently learned how to go outside and play with the other children, you see, so it actually was kind of a rude surprise. Poor Char1es had to see my complete...

"Frankly, I don't think anyone would be able to find a virgin within a 100-mile radius of the ski hills."
Seriously made my morning. I think Crispix came out my nose a little.


As for skiing next weekend, I wish I could but I'll be on the Island as of early Saturday morning. And if you had just ASKED, I'm sure you would have found a more than willing cookie baking buddy!



Hope Santy brings you some new and improved tendons! kiss

Can someone give me a hand with putting photos into my profile or point me in the direction of a tutorial? I know it's not rocket science, but I've never done any kind of photo-editing before. I really have to do something about that picture. Someone who knew me from that could not pick me out of a line-up...which actually doesn't...
