(Jon joked that he should have brought his Boredoms CD for them to play)

* Corey emailed me a bunch of ghost stories, which I appreciated.

* Went to my sister’s Fellowship, and had a reasonably good time.
* My parents put the kibosh on my meeting Candy when I was in the area.
* Saw the Ripley’s Museum at Niagara Falls.. we could spend a very expensive week there!
* Finally went home after 18 days… I *needed* the phone contact with Yazmine and someone else afterwards, since it reminded me of the comforts of home / helped me regain some lost sanity!
* First day of the Awana Club year.
* My old 486 computer finally decided to give up the ghost, temperamental beast that it was.

* Went to Netaholics Café for my Internet fix.. Eric M. thought I was insane to pay for it!

* Rediscovered the joys of the Crime Library.
* Dictionary Day happened on 16 October… I did nothing to mark the day, unless you count going to the 2004 Awana Leadership Conference. (Spoz didn’t need to block em, as he’d made a mental note of doing!)

* Spent WAY TOO MUCH money at the mall and Shoppers Drug Mart on gifts and such for myself and other people.

* Learned that “perfervid” was a word.. new words are cool.
* Got plenty of goodies in the mail, thanks to the LJ community Holiday_Wishes.
* Had the ESC Christmas Celebration, and saw Dave back in town.. singing carols by candlelight was a new experience.
* Saw my brother back in town.. Jon, Nate, both Erics, and I went to the Rose Garden Café for bubble tea later… Cana Booze Night at the Broadway Church, anyone?
* Bonded over ROTK:EE with a bunch of people, and slipped on Nathan’s floor.. that resulted in a sore back for a few days afterwards! (but things are fine now, thank goodness)

* Spent most of my Christmas Day at church taking care of the kids, and in hospital seeing my brother. (watched Fromage 2004, which the other people in the hospital lounge thought was no good!)

alt=”I am nerdier than 23% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!”>

You are a dark girl. You have a really quiet and
really an “I don’t care” attitude. You like to be
alone, and that is what you enjoy. You don’t
like to be around others, and you’d rather be
away from here. You have a “get away from me”
look and others find you bitchy and
self-righteous. You’d rather read than be at a
fair, but that’s okay because that’s who you are.

Who are you inside????? (LOTS OF RESULTS)girls only

You scored as Samurai. You are a Samurai. You are easily offended, and if your honor is offended you have to kill yourself. Your best weapon is your ability to scare the crap out of your enemies. You serve a Shogun though, and that’s not cool. You should be a Ronin.

In the year 2005, I resolve to:
Watch more TV.

I’ve been oddly thirsty tonight for some reason, even though I’ve been drinking regularly. No, I don’t think I have diabetes… maybe I just need more liquid consumption? Corey told me some time ago to take a cold shower, since it acts like a shock to the system. I think I’ll go do that and THEN drink a crapload of water or juice, actually. Bye for now.. I’m sure I’ll be around later!
