This week has been crazy busy, and rather than bore you all with a giant paragraph, I figured I would describe it succintly in point form instead.
-On the way home from work on the bus. I spot a seat at the far back, but its a tight squeeze in-between two guys. I look at the seat hesitatingly until one of the men says to me: “Sit down. You are the highlight of my day anyways.” Um..thanks?
-Went to bellydance class with my jazzy new scarf. Turns out the rest of the class bought new hip scarves too and we make a lot of noise jingling around. My instructor is trying to recruit dancers for the beginner’s class performance. I raise my hand to join, then she tells the class we’ll be dancing in front of 350 people! Yikes!
-My neighbours are making all sorts of noise, like their moving furniture or installing shelves, at 7am. It sounds like there are raccoons in the pipes.
-Finally got around to seeing a physiotherapist who advised me to see the sports doctor on site who can refer me to get an x-ray. The physio also provides me with exercises to strengthen my “core”. Unfortunately for most people, the sports doctor only works Mon-Friday, 9-5, so its gonna take some manoevering to see her.
-Went to my second “Comic Jam” at Shanghai restaurant. On my way there, I spotted this licence plate. It says “Cup4Sens”. Gotta love a man with optimism eh?
The Jam was great-the food was yummy and the “Halloween-themed” drawings were hilarious and very cool. There weren’t as many artists this time around, but there were some journalism students who came to report on the event. I got interviewed by a girl from CKCU and tried my best not to appear too nervous. She also tried to capture the sound of a pencil drawing on paper with her microphone, so I was sitting there attempting to draw and kept accidently tapping her mic with my pencil. Oops! Anyways, here is a photos of the event:
Here is a sample of the drawings, to see them all go to the site. I drew the first square and the silliness grew from there. 😉
-My software at work is driving me bonkers and I wonder why the financial system we use at work can’t be easier and more user friendly? Why does it take ten people to fix one little issue?
-Fully intended to go and see Stella perform that night but with a sore throat, I decided not to risk infecting her and the rest of the patrons at the tavern.
-After work, I felt bummed about my stagnant daytime career and how alienated I feel from my work group. Wine helped me forget about it a bit.
-Took the cats and dog to the vet. $400 later, their butts may not smell pinesol fresh, but they are healthier
-Got my hair done and fooled around with my camera
-That night, stayed home, ate candy and watched Trick ‘r Treat while kids showed up demanding that I share my ‘stash’
-Went out and bought hubby a videogame for his birthday, which he spent all day playing. I think he likes it. 😉
-Did some painting and promised to myself that I would start cleaning next weekend.
