And we're back! Live from North Bay, thanks to the good, if not slightly slow, people at Cogeco. Woot!
I'm pretty much settled in here! The job is fantastic, and I work with some absolutely awesome women, and I'm getting back into the groove of it all pretty easily. I'm still highly amused by some of the excuses people have for not paying rent, and the number of nosy neighbours there are out there.
In other news, I've been a bit of a hermit over the last week, because of my lack of contact with the outside world. This week will be different, I hope. I need to do some walking, mostly because we have a Pedometer Challenge at work, and I got thrown into the ranks to help the girls beat out our competitors, some of which apparently are tri-athletes. Oi. But, yeah, I'd love to really wander the city for a couple hours, see the sites, the shads... I've never been here in the summer, and I'd like to claim that I actually got a tan in Northern ON! So, I'm hoping for maybe a picnic in a part somewhere, or a walk down the waterfront... something like that. Wander the mall even! I don't like doing it alone, so I'm going to have to start recruiting.
Well, I've been recording random thoughts over the last week, so I could prove that I hadn't forgotten EpicSparky, and that I still had randomness in my life...
1) Who would had thought that open blisters the size of dimes would hurt so much? Meaghan bought me the most comfortable shoes on the market (in her opinion... They are really comfy, but...), and the blisters I got from it are rather insane. Actually, they're healing now, except somehow I got a blister IN a blister yesterday from going out with Karl and Jason. It's crazy, because we didn't really walk anywhere last night.
2)I had a thought about the woman upstairs, but now I kinda like her. She's just... well, not shy, but reserved, and I can respect that.
3) Karl gave me a crash course in poker, and now I have this wild fantasy of walking into a in a cocktail dress (about 40lbs lighter, mind you, with long, shiney waves of hair) ordering a dirty martini and revealing my hidden genious, wiping the floor with all the big shots. Fantasy can make reality suck sometimes.
4)What the hell does Hamlet performed in a Freezer have to do with fresh Hamburgers? Like, come on Wendy's...
5) Construction Paper ROCKS
6)I need a fan. I've been here a week, and it's already stuffy. And that's with the window open. Winter's going to be interesting.
7)I'm dehydrated on a subatomic level. I blame tachyons from Rygel 7. Ha Ha!
8)Why do I only want to eat when there's food in the house? Wait, I'll make that make sense... I'm not hungry when there's no food, and when there is, I feel like I have to eat it all so there's no food so I won't be hungry. Ok, so I can't make that make sense...
9)Is there a difference between reality TV (like Survivor and Big Brother), and "contest" TV (like Idol or Dancing with the Stars)? PS, I LOVE So You Think You Can Dance... I want to learn to dance like that.
10)Health Canada came out with a report that stated that for women, a waistline over 32" is "overweight". They're smoking the serious crack. Also, I may have heard that wrong, as I was half asleep. If someone could confirm that for me, that would be awesome.
11) Why isn't there an elevator or something to the top of Everest? I mean, someone must have thought of that by now... People are still risking their lives climbing that damned mountain, why not have family packs?
yeah, so... Random! Yay!
So... what else is going on? Not much. The place is still fairly clean, which is cool. I need a real vaccume though. That would be cool. And I'm going to get a few lawn chairs, turn my stretch of front yard into a patio. Picnic! yays! Oh, and I'm going to Sault Ste. Marie this weekend, with Adam, Karl and Mal. We're going to see Amanda in Pirates of Penzance. It should be good! Roadtrips rock.
So... That's pretty much it. If anyone feels like entertaining me, I'm ususally home by 5pm.
