This and that among other things

Yes, I quite liked the ring of that title. Well big news in little old Florenceville, that's right we can be finally put on the map, no nothing to do with McCains, much bigger if you asked some people. Yes the rumors have been true, we have a Tim Horton's

Guinness went in for her big operation, she is still in her kennel, very dopey and looking very sad. My poor puppy, however it was for the greater good I don't want to deal with all the male dogs in the neighbourhood

Took a few days off work this week, just felt like it. Have a new office that I share with the new research assitant who went to McGill as well and actually was on the woman's rugby team which plays at Mac, so there are my 2 degrees of separation.

So Gross

So today I saw one of the grossest things, in a Tim Horton's of all places. There I was trying to have my breakfast in peace, and there across from me, what the largest man, with a HUDGE scab on his elbow, it was the size of my bagel, all yellow and crusty and bleading, I mean come on get a bandage to cover it, people are trying to EAT.

Grossest thing you've ever seen while eating?

Going Away

So tomorrow I am leaving on my first ever big drive into the city of HRM aka Halifax Regional Municipality aka I am going to Dartmouth to stay with my Aunt while i go into Halifax. Nothing against Dartmouth, but it's just weird to be staying there.

What really bothers me, is that everyone seems to think that I am going to get lost on my way there, gerrr am I not one of the most anal people around when it comes to planing things?

Funniest Movie this Year

Went and saw the 40 year Old Virgin last night with the gals, talk about laugh my ass off, I was laughing so hard I was crying (which I normally do) it was raunchy as hell, but if that's your sort of thing, you'll enjoy it

I have found a new shampoo that I am in love with. Aussie Mega Shampoo. Not only does it smell great, my hair has never felt this soft, and the bonus it's not that $$

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I've been given
I sit and talk to God
And he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don't understand

I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
I don't wanna die
But I ain't keen on living either
Before I fall in love
I'm preparing to leave her

Scare myself to dead
That's why I keep on running
Before I arrive
I can see myself coming
I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
And I need to feel
Real love and the love ever after
I can not get enough

I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in
I got too much life
Running thru my veins
To go to waste

I just wanna feel
Real love and the love ever after
There's a hole in my soul
You can see it in my face
It's a real big place

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This rope I've been given
Not sure I understand (x3)

You're Beautiful

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

Talk about major flash backs. I was in the dollar store the other night, when I saw the candy isle. Bottlecaps were the first thing that I saw and I got them. Total impulse purchase. They have changed the packaging from when I was a kid, they used to be in a bag, but now they come in a roll similar to sweet tarts. I had the weirdest sensation when I opened them. The smell a lone and the memories of being 5 on a hot sunny day in Halifax going to the park and stopping in at Roger's to spend that 0.25 cents that you got for the week if you were lucky. Talk about movie playing in my head. And then I ate one, total out of body experience was transported back in time, funny how smells and tastes can do that to a person. After 17 years the taste of bottle caps hasn't changed a bit.So if anyone has Bottlecaps, and they don't like the Rootbeer ones, I'll eat them!

What sort of candies do you remember when you were little?

The calm before the storm

Well I know that I have been that current with my postings and I do apologize. Right now I just feel like jumping on top of my little unsturdy table that I work on here, and yell at the top of my lungs and see if anyone notices me. With all these people telling me how busy they are and they don't have time, you'd think they could find a task for me to do. This whole month has basically been too quite. I have far too much free time. You'd think that would be a good thing, but I just know that there is something coming, what it is I don't know.

I am thinking of making the trip to Montreal the weekend after the long weekend. That would be nice, fun to see everyone, go out for good food, do a little shopping. Then in the winter time I am looking at going to London, England for a tour. Just a nice vaca to get away.

Things at home are crazy as ever. Guinness is a joy and blessing, who would have thought that a dog could bring so much love into ones life. I always thought those "dog people" were nuts. Well let me be the first to admit I was wrong! She is the cutest thing, and it's hard to stay angry at her when she looks at you and tilts her head. You just want to pick her up and give her a hug.

More later, just had a sudden burst of I need to type something. I am sure there will be more to follow

Updated Links

Hi there ye who peruse my little site that I am sorry that I haven't really updated in awhile, I find that you get out of the swing of things and feel like you don't have much to input.

I have updated my links, you will see that I have another little site thingie for you my friends, it is easier for me to put my pictures up that way since I have changed computers yadda yadda yadda, there are reasons, so just enjoy them.

As all of us have heard now about the bombings in London, I would like to recomend the BBC website for news updates. It's a great site for news in general, so check it out. It is such a terrible thing, and I am lost for words

It's been awhile

Well I realize it has been awhile since I've posted anything, but there really hasn't been that much going on here in NB. Well that isn't true lots has happened however, nothing really interesting, it's been sorta one of those things that you can't imagine where the time went.

We had a squirrel the size of a cat in our house, it jumped over my shoulder and scared the shit out of me, that I jumped on my chair and screamed.

My mother was gone for the week, which made me realize even more how much she has to do.

And my brother's friend crashed her rather large truck into our house, didn't dent the truck, but sure did some damage to the house. Will post pictures of the house and squirrels later.

Ok well DH is on, Eddie is too funny.

April Already

How the time has flown, it is April already. I saw a robin today on my front lawn, which is always good to see after a long winter. The ice in the river has pretty much broken up with minimum flooding, which is good. I will try and post some pictures later so you can see the large chunks of ice.

Had a quite weekend, worked a bit on the basement. I have a closet now! Which is amazing, slowly moving my stuff in and their stuff out.

Ok well I thought that I had more to write here today but it's just not flowing

Cleaning my Appt and over 1000 visits

YEahhh look at that, over 1000 visits and I have moved into my appt, even more so I am cleaning the bathroom which was sorely forgotten and just never used, its not too bad just a lot of dirt as it used to be our mud room

Saturday, January 08, 2005

Made it through Week 1

That is right I have made it through my first week and boy was I exhausted. It will take some time getting used to being on my feet all day. That is right this is no desk job (which I am thankful for) I would go crazy if I had to sit all day.

I fianlly watched O Brother Where Art Thou, what a great movie I know I am behind a bit on certain films, but if you haven't seen it yet I highly recomend it. Also the soundtrack is amazing, especially the song O' Death, shivers down my spine when I first heard it.

Right my mom is out of the house for the Day a bit of a breathing space much needed cleaning will get done.

The work never ends, and it is freezing in this house, dam electric heating bill

2005 and goings on

I would first like to wish everyone a very Happy and Hopeful 2005, I have been thinking a lot lately (not too sure if that is a good thing ;) ) and yes I think it has somthing to do with me finishing school and soon to start work. The tsunami in Asia has also left me thinking, especially about how can I possubly help. While one can donate money to the relief I am still left feeling that there must be somthing more that I could do, I know if I was just to hop on a plane and go over there and show up and say ok what can I do I would be a complet fish out of water. Yet still I hate this feeling of helplessness, and even more so I know how lucky I am to live in this wonderful country and have a supportive family and well a nice life for lack of better terms, and I feel guilty when I complain about things that happen to me now, especially lately.

I can't tell you how disapointed I was in my govt when I saw that the US was only giving 30 million especially after Japan a tiny island country itself who knows the dangers of tsunami (a Japanese word) raised its original funding from 30 million US to 500 million US$. While I am glad to see that the US has raised it's original support from the 30 mil to 350 million $, none the lease still disapointed.

I am going to add a list of possible sites if you're interested in checking out and if you have any sujjestions please feel free to leave it in the comments sections:

Canadian Red Cross
Medecins Sans Frontieres

While I know it isn't much I feel that it is the least that I can do for now, I wish you all a safe and happy New Year and good luck to you all who are going back to school or looking for a job or whatever you might be doing
