My blog - March 2006

Being my own DJ

March 24th 2006, 2:53am

I've had my laptop for about a year now, and it's my music centre, my phone to James, my connection to many of you! Of course, it's too big to carry with me all the time! I did enough of that travelling Europe and on the cruise ship! And since it contains my music library and a lot of James' music as well, I'm trying to get an ipod. I'm sure most of you have heard of getting a free ipod! This one actually works! Some of James' friends have already got theirs. And it's one of the new 30 Gb ipods, which is AWESOME!!!! I have two people signed up all ready, and I only need three more to get my ipod. If you click on this link

or copy and paste it, it will choose me automatically, and you just have to put in your info. You just choose one of the options. The Sears At Home card is good, it's free for the first month. Oh, and you can choose whether you want a 30 Gb ipod or a 4 Gb nano. Which is better than most of these free ipod sites. Anyways, if you do, that's awesome, if you don't, that's cool too! Thanks for listening to my little plug, guys.

I've been doing well. My car should be on the road within the next week or so! Yay! So my little world will expand a little. I've been rather a recluse lately, which is no fun at all! Sometimes I wish I were in S'toon, around so many of you crazies... But I do enjoy Calgary. Especially the lack of winter! Hee hee! The weather has been really nice this week, and I look forward to spring. Dry roads, green grass, everything blossoming... You know, I'm not sure WHAT my favourite season is. I love fall with all the changing colours, spring with that wonderful smell of moist soil and green growing things, the tantalising fragrance of flowers surrounding you, the heat of summer, the feeling of the sun beating down on you juxtaposing the iciness of a cold mountain stream or lake or even better, as the waves lap your feet while your toes sink into the sand... Even winter has its appeal in the long spikes of hoarfrost, or the first snowfall, big fluffy flakes falling around your face, the intricacy of each lacy snowflake. Oops! I think I've waxed eloquent long enough!

I hope you're all enjoying yourselves wherever you are! If anyone who was onboard the Elation with me is reading this, drop me a line! I'd love to know where you are now!

Rachel showed me this site, and I turned out to be Animal. Anyone agree? :D

You Are Animal
A complete lunatic, you're operating on 100% animal instincts.
You thrive on uncontrolled energy, and you're downright scary.
But you sure can beat a good drum.
"Kill! Kill!"
The Muppet Personality Test

I also tried the candy test, and turned out to be...

Gummy Bears
You may be smooshie and taste unnatural, but you're so darn cute.
What Kind of Candy Are You?

I'm also a car, it seems...

Your Summer Ride is a Beetle Convertible
Fun, funky, and a little bit euro.
You love your summers to be full of style and sun!
What's Your Summer Ride?

The Ben & Jerry's test is silly, but I like what I turned out to be!!! If you don't laugh out loud, let me know!

You Are In a Crunch Ice Cream
The perfect combo: a completely nuts person who likes to be touched
What Flavor Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Are You?

I'm moving in with my brother, Paul, on Saturday, so that will be fun! Having someone else to live with, goof around with. Of course, he's looking forward to having a widescreen TV and internet and lots of stuff. So if any of you are in Calgary, I think we'll have to have a big BBQ night sometime!

yup, I'd say those quizzes give a fairly good depiction of you :) (surface-wise, anyways). and I hear ya about loving all of the seasons--I love each one while I'm in it, but I'm always ready for the next one when it comes (although there is always something exciting about having a blizzard in May.....!)

Oh the fun!

So lately when people ask me what I've been up to, I say working and wedding stuff. That really pretty much covers it! I get to talk to James Saturdays, Sundays and alternate Friday mornings before I head off to work. Poor guy! Some times I'm so tired I can't tell what stuff I actually respond to, and what things I respond to in my head. One morning I was just about asleep on the phone, and I thought I was having a great conversation with him, until he jolted me out of my drowsiness asking me his question again! All of you know I've never been a morning person. Breakfast? Don't you mean brunch? That meal crazy people eat in the morning? Oh, right, THAT meal! Composes of cereal for most people? I choose SLEEP instead! :P

Work has been going well. My days at ATB as receptionist fly by. Slow days? What are those? Oh, you mean the days where I don't have people at my desk every minute but I still have plenty to keep me busy? Oh, okay! Which is a good thing. After all, I'm not watching the clock, or trying to find things to amuse myself with! Which is nice.

Speaking of amusing myself, while chatting with Kev Nikkel aka "the tropical rainforest", I was mucking around making a weemee. They're cool, and I found the site where you can make them at no fee! Yay! www.weeworld.com You can create a little person that resembles you, they make fun MSN pics or... if you have Skype (a great FREE way to keep in touch with long distance friend, the way James and I have kept in touch so nicely), you can use it for your pic too! Meet me in MSN sometime, guys, and check it out! Or get Skype and keep in touch with me no matter where we are! (You know what I'm talkin' about, Karis!)

I've been keeping busy with wedding invitations. Just have to find paper and envelopes, and then I'll be able to print them! Hurray! They're my biggest labour for this wedding. James has been a great help getting them ready, and has been working on our website as well. What are we going to do? His website, my website, our wedding website!!!! Oi!

We've got a church, a reception site, a photographer, my dress... Flowers are the next big thing after invites. Any Calgary ladies out there with ideas for florists?
