I have been thinking for several days that I haven't blogged in a while, and as it gets further from my last post, I seem to feel more and more like if my next post isn't incredibly amazing, then it wont be worth it. But hell, half the posts in this blog are just crap, so why not trudge forward! Mando did it on her blog, so I will do the same. Here is a bulleted recap of the past week.
- Last Wednesday, I missed class because I missed all 3 of my possible buses simultaneously. I don't know how the hell it happened, but it did. This is just one of my many bus issues this week. Nothing seems to work out when I want to bus somewhere. But I did meet some lovely girls on the bus on Saturday night. They even took a picture of me with them, but I have no idea who these people were, so it will never be tagged on Facebook. Sad!
- I saw the movie Zach & Miri Make A Porno. It was pretty good. Some dumb parts, but that's a prerequisite in movies these days, so whatever.
- I ended up taking a trip to Perth on the weekend, which was lovely. Nice little town. But they do NOT allow big box stores to come to town, and even their Tim Hortons is the 'chalet model' because they wouldn't allow the regular store to be built. Freaks!
- I finished the 140 page photo book I'm giving my mom for Christmas, of her trip to Italy. She's going to love it. Just don't tell her what I'm giving her. If you do, I'll be sad!
- I mean it. Don't spoil my mom's Christmas present secret.
- My sister turned 30 yesterday. We only spend 53 weeks living in the same age decade, and then we spend 8 years and 51 weeks in different ones. When I turn 30, Alison will be a week away from turning 39. Crazy!
- Yesterday I went to the Remembrance Day ceremony at the National War Memorial. It always amazes me how many people turn out to something that involves standing in the freezing cold for two hours, while you stare at the back of someone else's head. I've gone 4 years in a row, and while I am always in the same general area, I'm pretty sure that no one in attendance is actually able to see what is going on at any point. Especially since one of the big screens is behind a tree, and the other one was broken. And then the sound system was cutting out while the childrens choir was singing. Bravo, CBC. Afterward, the thousands of people all made their way to restaurants or the mall, and downtown Ottawa went from absolutely packed, to barren landscape, in about 20 minutes.
- I guess I should get going. I've got 4 labs to do for school, that are due within the next 10 days. None of them take very long, but they're boring and therefore time consuming. Grr.
