full, very much so

i am super duper full. i ate a lamb shank at work, went to the jason george and had nachos and then a slice of turtles cheesecake. i had brown cow and one and a half pints of strongbow. other than that, i didn't have much at all today. just an apple on my way to work.'s not a lot of food stretched over the course of the day but it's a fair bit of food for an hour and a half. such a little piggy. tisk year's resolution??? i think so...

jen and auston are dating, nes pas? i'm not sure. they're all touchy feely but i don't know if they're dating. i've stopped asking jen because i don't find auston all that attractive. i can't help but say "ew" when i think about him. it's slightly gross. i like him as a friend but never would i think about him romantically or sexually. bleech...

jessica's going away to new zealand for four months. lucky girl. i think i'm going to go out west in the spring. cj was saying how he wanted to go out west by via and i asked if i could join him. the plan is to take the train so we can literally see everything and make stops along the way. he wants to stop and see louise in alberta.

tomorrow is going to be a long day. gotta get off my lazy ass and do stuff in the day and then go to work for a super long shift. i'm scheduled 4 until 4. i'm sure it's going to be longer that then.

my father just came and asked me what a tsunami is. it's so sad and terrible. the news said the death count is over 117, 000. people at work were saying how it's really a lot higher because sri lanka doesn't keep proper records of their people so no one really knows how many sri lankans are missing. i'm very glad that tanya, a girl who i used to work with, finally called home. she's in thailand and no one knew if she was alright or not.

gotta get to bed. i wish my bed had the ability to become uncomfortable in the mornings so i wouldn't want to stay in it all day.

merry christmas

merry christmas everyone!!! i ate too much food!!! i ate two plates of dinner, drank two mugs of mango juice, and had some fruit after all of that. it doesn't sound like a lot but it was my first meal of the day so my stomach strunk. i didn't plan for it to be my first meal of the day but i ended up being a lazy bitch and staying in bed until really late. i pooed and then contemplated making myself throw up. the over-full feeling went away pretty fast so it was okay. i ate some more fruit after that.

my baby second cousin, sheldon, is so cute! his dad, herbert, told him to give me a kiss so he could take a picture and he kissed me on the lips really fast and then ran to look at the picture on the digicam before herbert got a chance to take a picture. he did it twice! so cute! i must sound really dumb using all these exclamation marks!!! after that, we had some fun with a magnidoodle.

my cousins and i played some trivia pursuit after dinner. we didn't play the actual game. we just asked questions but it eventually turned into 'reach for the top' because i was the only one asking questions and everyone else spazzed and shouted out the answers. claudia was playing too and for some reason, she and mimi would shout out the answers and point at me if they knew the answer. they both got very excited about the game.

i'm going boxing day shopping this year. i haven't gone since my mother took me and my brothers when we were kids. was she nuts? why the hell would you take children to a packed mall on boxing day? not my idea of a fun day. anyway, i hope i'll score some kick ass deals. mimi wants to go for 8:00 a.m. when the mall opens.

anyway, i'm going to read magazines now. once again, merry christmas!!!

i want to be a slayer

i saw 'blade trinity' last night. i'm very glad to report that it was much better than the second one. not so much cheese in the third installment. and can someone tell me the hell did ryan reynolds get so damn hot? *drool*drool* oh sorry, lemme wipe my spit off of the screen now. he spends a good 20 minutes topless. *still drooling*

blade kills dracula in the film so will there be another blade film? they left it open ended so who knows. they make a killing with those films.


i thought that i was in a blogging mood, but i'm not. lates...

baby, it's cold outside

that's my favourite christmas song. it's the only one that doesn't piss me off and make me hate christmas. 'santa baby' really annoys me because it always sounds like a dumb skanky bimbo is singing it. i heard some carolers outside at pape logan tonight. i remember doing that when i was in choir.


i got everything that i need to make my fudge. i've given up on finding raspberry extract because apparently, it doesn't exist. well, i know that it exists, i just don't know where the hell to find it. i went to sun valley and to the big carrot and neither of them had it. they had all the other flavours though; alas, all useless to me...*sigh*. i googled some more recipes and it turns out that i can just use raspberry flavoured liquor instead. hurrah! my mood was lifted when i learned that.

i also bought all the packaging that i need. so far, this year's christmas giving has cost me roughly $30 for nearly 10 people which is GRRRREAT (tony the tiger great)!!!! three bucks per person, not bad. not bad at all. now i need to buy some cards. i can't decide if i want to get cards made for school children to pass out in class or if i want proper adult cards. it would be cheaper to get the little kiddie ones. maybe i can find some transformers cards! that would be kick ass.

i gotta clean my room tonight. my parents are coming back from florida tomorrow and i have yet to move all of my stuff from the basement. i'm such a procrastinator. i should have done it months ago but of course, i enjoy tormenting myself by leaving things until the very last minute. argh! when will i learn? when??

i also have a least two loads of laundry to do. i've run out of clothes to wear. it's not too bad since i have to work a lot this week so i'll mostly be in my uniform. i'll probably wear sweat pants the rest of the time because i'll be so tired. i love sweat pants!!! and pumas...must buy more.


i am now obsessed with winter coats. i want more and more of them. i want to buy a white one from aritzia. a longer one that covers my butt that also has a hood. jen's going to wonder what the hell is wrong with me. she's already questioned me about the number of coats i have. oh well, she's got a gazillion shoes so she's not one to talk.

i bought two spatulas from williams-sonoma today. the line ups in the mall are hell. avoid them until january if you can. shop online. save precious minutes of your life being wasted from standing in line.


okay, time to stop procrastinating and doing chores.

where are the hot strippers?

i went out to milestones for dinner with some old friends from jack astor's tonight. we must have looked retarded to pepole because we were laughing so much. there were some hot waiters that dropped off food and drinks at our table and we blatantly stared at them. nothing wrong with that.

anyway, some how the conversation turned to strip clubs and tammy said that she had never been so we ended up going to the zanzibar on yonge. not one of the 'dancers' danced. tammy and jen g went and got a lap/table dance which was pretty damn funny. there were a lot of sketchy looking old guys in there too.


on saturday, i got cut from my night shift so i went for dinner with jen b. (i know, jen is such a common name). steaks at podium were really good but i was surprised at how high the bill was. or should i say how low the discount was. i thought there was more of a difference. oh well. at least it was a good meal.

afterwards, we ended up at the underground garage. steve must think that i'm in love with him now because i had smoked some pot and was staring at him all night. not obsessed, he was just the first thing in my line of vision. why does pure spirits have all the hot chefs? we're stuck with little creepy brown guys and gay men. boo!!

afterwards, we went and got chinese food and went to adam's. dean got the guys at the underground to loan him a two-four of corona. around 4:30 jen and adam started to drift off on the couch and they were holding hands. dean and i decided it was time to go home but jen decided to stay the night. i wonder...hmm... i really should stop being so gossipy. why am i so nosy? why?!?!

there was also a guy wearing a green shirt and leather pants. i was going to slap his ass really hard but then steve said he wanted a slap and i tried to get the leather pants dude to stand in front of steve so when i slapped steve, he would hump a leather clad ass. i don't remember the guys name but he looked like a leprechaun because he was dancing all weird. i started singing "we all know where the rainbow goes" from the pot of gold commercials and jen and dean pissed there pants and i had to run away.


i've decided that i'm going to make fudge as presents this year. i bought three pounds of chocolate today for $15 and icing sugar for $1.27 and i have the rest of the stuff that i need. i'm going to make mint chocolate fudge and i also want to make raspberry chocolate fudge but i wasn't able to find raspberry extract today. hopefully i'll be able to locate some tomorrow. anyhoo, off to make my first batch of the season.

it's been so long

wow, it's been almost a month since i last posted. well, i finally bought a wool coat, found a pair of pumas to buy, and a kid was stabbed to death outside of my old high school. weird. who would have thought there would ever be a stabbing at eyci? the cops say it's gang related.

i'm currently slightly hung over. it was really warm in the bar last night so we all drank a little quicker than we normally do. there was a party at work and we all got out pretty early which was great. i asked a man for his credit card to run a tab and he offered me his hotel room key instead. i told him it was worth very much to me if he skipped out on his bill. my first instinct was to laugh but then i controlled myself. would all the dirty old men please fuck off? thanks!

i'm going to make my guest appearance at podium tonight. i think it's great that they haven't fired me yet. they give me two shifts a week and i end up giving them away every week because there are better shifts at the distillery. i'm pretty sure i'm going to have to give away more shifts next week. i work there but i only show up maybe once every two or three weeks. fun times! i hope marc is working. our standard greeting "hey stranger". =)

i'm thinking about dying my hair black again. i'm not the type who gets attached to my hair but i'm finding it hard to decide whether or not to dye out the pink. i dyed some of it out months ago because it was taking over my entire head. i think it's because i don't like my cut right now. a woman named 'nutty' cut it. why couldn't i just wait for my regular hair stylist to come back from vacation? it would have only been another 3 days. damn me and my impatience.

i went to jamie kennedy wine bar for dinner last tuesday. the food was amazing and it was surprisingly cheap for the amount of food that we ordered. phil was my foodie friend. everyone else was trying to stay on a budget for that night but phil just kept ordering wines. the $12 cheese plate was great. too bad the service sucked ass. he was such a jackass. he would stand by the computer terminal, which was only two feet away, and would look over our table and not make eye contact. the guy only had four tables so i don't know what he was so frazzled about. so, my advice for dining at jk wine bar: go with a group of about 6 and order one of everything on the menu, and ask not to be served by mitko. unattentive jackass...

time to drink some water. i'm glad i'm not nauseous.
