I saw a Princess at the bookstore today…

November 30, 2007

Hey, I got a Christmas card from Ana (daphne486) and a card with various stickers from Julie (julie709) over the past few days! Gotta love the Easter stickers showing up at Christmas time, haha. Also got a penguin blood donor, a pink bear, and scratchy dog / fish stickers. You know, the ones where you […]

Not going to ping-pong, but dinner instead!

November 30, 2007

Steph unexpectedly invited me out to dinner tonight. Sure, I’ll do it tomorrow! I know Korey called three times today, but I was frankly too upset to say anything. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day if it happens…

Comics / Sadness / Dream of baby Byron and Laura Ingalls Wilder

November 29, 2007

Got a bunch of good advice and funny comic recommendations yesterday – thanks, Teunis! You know I need to laugh right now, and I appreciate that! 🙂 Biting teen advice. (no, not literal advice on how to bite teens… :P) Ozy and Millie (a good comic to meander through) Tales of Mu (and a funky […]

Note: What swear word are you Kwiz Biz, by Thy Beloved. Note to self: Just put the names and authors of Kwiz Biz quizzes as a note like I do with LJ-based Blogquizzes and Memegens. Too much “bad” HTML to be edited otherwise! Everclear lyrics that suit my mood right now: Baby, go to bed […]

Dream of reverse conditions, Veggie Tales, and Tim Horton’s!

I had an interrupted nap when a blocked number called me – no lie, since that’s what shows up on the Caller ID. (“——- BLOCKED CALL”) If it’s blocked, how does it get through in the first place?! Ugh. At least Lesley and I agree that naps are wonderful things! I’m also calmer about certain […]

How do you translate THAT situation into Chinese?!

November 27, 2007

Managed to get my ride something yesterday: some cheaper chocolates (Willocrisp!) and two cute Christmas-themed mini stuffed toys will do for them, as well as a Disney-themed Christmas card. I kinda wanted to go to the mall today, but I don’t think it’s a good idea right now – maybe I’ll wait till the mall’s […]

I do not put cigarette butts or litter on / near my patio, thanks!

November 26, 2007

Man, am I glad to be home – it’s snowing now in certain places around here! Had a busy weekend, which kept me from missing people too much… but I still do love and miss them. I managed to shop for a bunch today – Uncle John’s Triumphant 20th Anniversary Bathroom Reader, birthday / Christmas […]

Pressing 6 is what YOU do, not the other person!

November 26, 2007

After an hour-long nap, I was good to go… or maybe not, since I kept yawning every so often on the ride over to Jeremy’s. I said that Eric didn’t want to imagine what I’d be like if I did NOT have that nap: he surmised I’d be really cranky. He knows me quite well, […]

We don’t want to know if parents hit romantic home runs a lot, Mike!

November 25, 2007

Jon and Steph picked me up this morning, so I said something about his birthday – I knew his golden birthday was last year, but I definitely wasn’t thinking. Steph’s co-worker has just come back from Beijing, and developed a nasty smokers cough within a week from all the pollution: according to Lonely Planet, spending […]

She may have a hairy Assyrian uncle, but don’t go all SPARTA!!!! on him…

Before I went to Awana this afternoon, I spent time updating my Facebook visual bookshelf – Raymond had reminded me about that yesterday when he brought it up. Added a lot of books, with more to come since I *do* read a lot! When Ada picked me up, Ian was eating Frosted Flakes out of […]
