A real go-getter.

July 5, 2008

I love how I got a registered letter from the government demanding my tax return with 30 days. From 2006 I guess? A testament to my excellent bookkeeping skills methinks.

I went to go get my nails done at a neighbourhood kind of place [I am not going to bother to explain why I have acrylic nails but it is for a purpose.] I was just getting them filled, the young girl doing them was so nice, we had a good conversation about our families. I really liked the experience, more than the the first place I went to with hoochie tanned chicks gossiping and stuff… [okay that is not fair but it had this really annoying vibe about it.] I was planning on going back, but my nails are so fucking bumpy! She did a shitty job but she was so nice, I don’t want to go back and be a bitch. I guess you have to go to the pretentious expensive places to get a good result. :(

Why am I using proper capitalization?

i know this is one of those so annoying things, but i was looking at pictures from when celeste was here and i would really like to lose some weight! granted, anyone looks like a megabeast beside celeste, but i think now is a good time to work towards a body i would prefer a little more. maybe i am brainwashed, but to me it is not about bending towards other people’s ideal, but my own personal preferences in what i find attractive. damnit! but this is the time i am determined to accomplish things, i am no longer all winge with no action amber, so might as well start/continue here.


home sweet trashhole.

so… i was GOING to go to yoga today, finally, but then keith offered the option of chinese buffet. regretfully, i chose the buffet. we did vow to never go there again anyway, due to the fact that there was nowhere to look that wasn’t depressing. it reminded me of america [or what i presume america to be having barely been there.] plus be going to a buffet is a pretty big joke because thankfully i get full in about two minutes. actually, being ‘out and about’ in langford today reminded me why i had such negative associations with it from when i lived out here in grade 10. i may have committed suicide if i had to spend grades 11 and 12 here! even as we were in the elevator back to our condo keith said ‘i just want to get out of langford and into our house!’ haha. it serves it’s purpose anyway, and generally when i go out i am pleasantly surprised at the general friendly, non-trash i come across.

in any case, i HAVE TO go to yoga on saturday. tomorrow night i have to go to my mom’s for dinner and sunday i will hopefully be hung over for the first time in quite a while, after brittani’s boyfriend’s birthday. i hate how i am starting to feel like ‘i am so fat, wah wah’ when i have been feeling generally good about myself in recent memory. i blame it on beginning to be aware of my body, as well as seeing all the perfect naked yoga ladies in the change room! in any case, it is really unfortunate, because i seem to be fairly unable to maintain good habits. i will keep trying though! even though i don’t actually control very well what i put into my body, i do think about it, which is strange in the sense that i never did at all before a year or two ago, and now i really think about it.

here are some old pictures [i just unpacked the cord.]


at ferris’…s…s… goddamnit, that is one of those easy grammatical things i will always forget how to do properly and feel like an idiot for. anyway, that soup was amazing, except for it being entirely cilantro-ridden… i hate cilantro so very much. but it has these rice dumplings that were so effing good. that’s right, so good i have to be vulgar and say effing. also i love the mayo sampler you can order with the fries, three different mayos, the thai peanut one is good.

i had to capture the awesomeness of this at the metchosin farmer’s market… because i am mean.

yes, only go out on the strongest note.

the height of entertainment in the…. when is this from? 19th century?

buck 65… before the show started, just before my camera ran out of batteries! so sad.

oh, and in a good note:

Touring musician Buck 65 was ecstatic when he learned yesterday that nearly 100 hours of video footage stolen from his May 8 concert at Alix Goolden Performance Hall has been recovered.

[His manager] said she had almost given up hope the mini-DV tapes would ever be found. Then someone called the office to let her know someone had posted an ad on a Victoria buy-and-sell website for the missing footage.

That someone turned out to be post office employee Steven Sanders, who found a manila envelope filled with the concert footage beside a mailbox on the side of the highway in Colwood. Across the envelope was written “Missing Buck 65 Footage.”

Not knowing who Buck 65 was, Sanders placed the ad with his e-mail address. He also made posters with his son, which he was going to put up around the neighbourhood. Before he had a chance, Sanders got an e-mail from Buck 65’s friends.

“He e-mailed back: ‘Tell me what’s in the envelope and it’s yours,'” Persley said. She then sent him a photo of tapes similar to the stolen ones.

“When the footage was stolen, it was a huge blow against a big effort,” said Persley. “It was big money-wise. There were props, sets, lighting visual effects to create a great show so we could shoot this DVD. It was absolutely irreplaceable and invaluable.”

i swear, they must have spent at least like… $350 dollars on that equipment. :P

i think we may have just bought a condo.

despite evidence to the contrary, i am excited! and partially insanely terrified.


do you think you need to do a building inspection on a brand new place with a 10 year warranty? it seems unnecessary, but i don’t know much about these things and i hate to be naive.


you are lucky to know me, you just don’t know it.

sometimes i wish i didn’t think i was such a damned awesome and amazing person. but then i remember all those years when people would tell me nice things and i just wouldn’t hear them… do i deserve this newfound state of finally having an ego after going through years of self-doubt? probably not. it will probably get me into trouble.

but i am an awesome person so i will manage just fine!


I AM LEGEND. no, not you…..


the too much information post.

acceptance of being the crazy cat lady.

February 4, 2008

when you are the owner of a cat, it seems regardless of how often you lint brush yourself you are that person who is walking around with cat hair all over your clothes. it is really tough to be fashionable or attractive when you’re that insane woman [things i can struggle at at the best of times.] i lint brush my new clothes before i leave the house. they look good. i arrive at work, somehow i am covered in hair again. is my cat hiding in my pocket? i lint brush myself when i get to work. surely this will last. there are no cats to be seen, and i have even lint-brushed my chair to take care of those strays i have transported there myself. and yet, not 20 minutes later, i am once again that insane woman. where is that beast lurking?

don’t fight it, don’t even try…. i think i should just make a cardigan with all the matted hair and just embrace it to it’s fullest.
