Cheesies are so yummy in my tummy tralala

It has been so long now since I entered a post. Eh. Not much has happened.


Seriously now, it's all different! I'm 23 now! With great age comes great responsibility! So far I think I have eaten more junk food in the past three days then my entire 22nd year! (That's a mass exaggeration but you get the picture) Yup, I'm 23. I sleep a whole bunch, I'm playing games on the internet like it's going to go somewhere far, and I'm eating food I could never afford on my own so... cheesies, those yummy chocolate chip cookies mom makes, pepsi, and cheesy buns. (heehee... buns)
So yeah, I am also in Vernon for two weeks. It is funny that for the first time that I ever get the time to actually spend a long visit in Vernon, is the first time that I actually have things to miss in PG. I am having a lovely visit though, being spoiled rotten. I just get to relax and try not to think about school in order to remain happy. Mom and I have been shopping a lot lately which is mucho fun.
Christmas was wonderful except for the snow that decided to invade the Okanagan. I remember there was a time this would make me happy, but now that I live a little more North.... not so much with the loving of the white stuff. (or as Sheena pointed out, 'PG is really North!')
So, wanna hear about my new love? Knitting! I am in the midst of a pink and brown toque with a matching scarf! Whee for me! I've got the book I should have just stolen from Julia but anyways, it's called Stitch N' Bitch and so I'm pretty happy with it and wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
New development in school in the dropping of my creative writing course to lower my courseload from five to four. It sucks but I figure currently I barely have anytime to do anything (like the research that I am suppose to be doing currently....) so I decided if I take five course I have to drop all my other activities and I don't want to do that so.
I have got to go to bed now. Even just to get these cheesies away from me! Tootles! Leone

is it time to sleep yet?

ugh. I hate this part, when you've studied all that you can and your head in so full of stuff you never really desired to have in there in the first place, but you still have another hour and fifteen minutes before you have the chance to purge your brain of all this nattering and then run away screaming 'never again!' but with my chances I'll trip before I get out the door, not a good trip where you gain sympathy by just smoking your knee or something on the door, but one where it's all slow motion and everyone has enough time to look over just as you fall and make an unhappy face but you don't damage anything so you have to jump back up, even if you did hurt yourself but it wasn't explicit enough, and then I will pause, dust myself off, and take off running and screaming again. It's good to have goals. Hm. One hour and thirteen minutes. Wonder if the hot chocolate machine is working yet. Okay, I'll go study some more. Who knows, maybe the definition of the program behaviour model has changed in the last two minutes. It could happen. You don't know. Punk.

*ack* school..... sigh........
Okay, have two new things to add to my christmas list cause I'm so greedy. It's true.
  • a DVD pilates thingie
  • really large pottery mugs for coffee

I should go study for social now. And, for all of you out there, over the Christmas break, I would like you all to motivate me to care more about school cause right now... not so much with the love here. Anyhoo, going home soon! Wheeeeeeeee! Tata for now!

The Messiah Blogs

Yeah that's right. Anyhoo, some ideas for presents for me! include the following...
  • socks-with monkeys, cats, or owls on them! (Lizards will do as well) Brightly coloured or striped knee socks acceptable as well!
  • gift certificates to HMV or DVDs (unfortunately I want all the expensive TV series ones so eh)
  • a dresser
  • books books and more books-like the first, fourth, and fifth Harry Potter, any on the Kushiels Dart trio (I need to give Maggie back her copy), or gift certificates to coles, ANY of the bloom county comics, or any cool coffee table books with lots of pretty pictures
  • same old art supplies as usual, though no watercolour or pencils, but cool paper to paint on or what have you
  • a really good packsack for school cause mine is all ripped
  • a camera
  • framed paintings or cool things to hang on my wall(I'm not so much into faeries anymore, more of a... chinese dragon phase right now)
  • all about the jewelry
  • a grater
  • pots for cooking
  • toys for Spike
  • bed pillows
  • earphones, the type that go around the back of your neck so as not to muss your hair
so that's quite a lot, basically I'm all for any gift cause I'm not picky, and in a pinch, money will do ; P . Anyhoo, I'm soooo excited for the holidays! Baileys, hot chocolate, and David Bowie wearing makeup! Woohooo! Well, away I go to study.

Blessed be my children, blessed be.

This next one was stupid though cause it was easily rigged (question was something like... where do you live? and the answers were all the place the characters lived so it was kinda lame, but I enjoy the tag so)

Spike's big adventure

So Spike paid the vet a little visit this morning. As you can imagine, he was thrilled. Now, the first time Spike visited the vet he was so scared he didn't move or blink the entire time, nor did he detach his claws from my sweater. But the second time we went it was a little different. The moment I put his leash on and took him outside, the hissing and spitting begain. And yes, spitting. He was so bad that the vet decided not to take his tempature, mainly due to the low grumblings he was omitting. He also has a social problem, basically he would start flipping out in his cage if he was too close to other cats and extending his paw out of his cage to scratch people.

He's special.

So anyways, after waking to my defcom4 alarm, Spike and I set off in Jen's car (with Jen driving) away to the vet. Because it's been about three weeks, I think his memory was a little dim from last time, so he was mostly new smells occupied. Though then we got to the vet and he started to slink further and further under my arm. However, we got into the examining room and I am so proud of his non spitting and scratching. I won't go as far as to say he was social or anything, when the vet lifted him off of the table to get weighed, he refused to move any of his legs from their previous position, it was like he was a statue. So he didn't even squawk when the vet was feeling his tummy. I was so proud. Then came the shots. So Spike was sitting, facing me, and the vet was behind him and gave him the shot in the hindquarter region. Poor Spike. So he lunges with his left paw and arched around, I think he was trying to slit the vet's wrist. Anyhoo, the vet escaped from that one, and I held Spike a little tighter for the next shot, which consisted in some hissing. So luckily, no bodily harm to me, the vet, nor Jen. Jen was placed in some danger when she was holding Spike while I was paying and a very big dog came in, so Spike had to let him know who was the alpha male in the room by hissing. Least to say, it all went all and Spike doesn't need another visit for a whole year. He's adjusting well to his new grown up kitty food and has gotten more friendly with some of the toys I purchased for him months ago (I sprayed them with catnip). I have lots of photos of him I will hopefully be sending out with Christmas cards if I ever get around to that so for those who have not seen him, he is the cutest cow kitten ever. Well, that's all that's new for now! Bybye!

Bloated Arnold

so this morning, I ate two pancakes really quickly (it was the source of food I used to bribe myself out of bed half an hour late) and chugged my coffee before coming to school, and then in Jen's car we were discussing the future ramifications of automated trash pickup (the terminator) and then we said something about Arnold being governor, and then my tummy made some gurgling noise, so I went 'uuuggghh' and Jen agreed with me. So now it determined I have yucky arnold tummy. And frankly, my arnold tummy is very upset and bleckey. On other news, I'm making a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Website! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. And I got a spray bottle for Spike jumping on the counters. He's not so happy about this recent purchase. Hey, it's nearly my birthday! Have you all gotten more presents yet? huh? Punk.

Perils of the Nose

So, as some of you know but others I may have just presumed you know but you actually don't, I have a pierced nose. Yes, I know it's shocking, but it's true.
I got it pierced in Montreal on March 1st, or 2nd, (John would know for sure). And since then, I have managed to keep it and not have my nostril torn in two! That makes me happy. (Funny enough, getting my nose pierced hurt WAY more than getting my eyebrow piercedwho knew?)
I started out with a lovely and expensive green jewel which is lost somewhere in Gwen's house, then I switched to swirly thingie, than to this red stud, but on the second day the red part fell out leaving this ugly dot, but the thing is, the last two were both bars, which are really painful to get in and out, I mean, really really painful. So anyways, I figured no worry, and left the ugly dot in my nose cause well, ow.
So anyhoo, I picked up some really neato nose studs at Claires last week with Florence who got her ears pierced (so pretty!) and I did get some bars, but it was cause I really wanted the little cherries nose stud! So I swallowed the pain and switched the bars.
This was only just last week.
Now, if I tell you where I got my nose studs, Claires, this next bit will be not a suprise. The frickin' green leaf part fell off the nosestud right away! But I had had enough self inflicted torment for the month so I did nothing.
Now the whole reason I wrote this was cause last night, at 430 in the morn (BC time) I was having very vivid dreams, and all of a sudden, I woke up, and just knew that my nose stud was no longer in my nose. It didn't hurt really, but there was a feeling of absense. So I touched my nose hesitantly with my fingers to realize I was right, there was no longer a cherry nose stud in my nose, but there was a growing amount of free running blood!
Gross eh?
So after frantically looking for my nose stud in my bed, I took off for the bathroom with Spike hot on my heels (he thought we were playing a game and was soooo excited) where I tore apart the medicine cabinet looking for other studs (though I grew concerned my landpeople were going to call the cops when I dropped my bottle of hairspray really loudly) and finally, in a panic because of my still slightly confused in my dream/what's happening state, I found my studs and quickly pushed (owowowowowowowow!) an ironically red nose stud into my bleeding nose... hole.
So anyways, as I mulled over how exactly my nose stud was ripped out of my head in the middle of my sleep, I found the cherry stud on my bed all bent up. I purposely sleep with no blankets that will snag my nose stud, so I couldn't figure out what had happened, but then I realized, I have a bandaid on my finger! (yes I am in emoticon heaven, why?)
So I have come to the conclusion that people with nose studs should never wear bandaids to bed. Which deeply conflicts with having an insane (but socially active!) kitten living in the house.
But yeah, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

In other news-no cavities!

Quiet Grad Room

Mmmm.... it's Friday afternoon. I'm pretty darn tired. I think I will go to bed very very early tonight. I keep on staying up to watch Jon Stewart but I wonder if I should try to hook up my VCR to tape it. That would be good. I've also decided to become an OC fan, yup, jumping on that bandwagon. (so to the eyebrow crooking masses, I got cable) Florence is getting her ears pierced this weekend, all very exciting. There is also the much anticipated Jen and Coral's house warming party on Saturday, sure to be the talk of the town till Christmas. That's all I'm going to post right now, no rants really, no grudges or sneers, just a post about the current quietness of the grad office. And also, I wanted to make a November post. It's exciting, cause it's not October. Tralala, call me!

Coffee is good

I just nearly died in my english class because I decided I didn't need coffee this morning. A mistake I hopefully will never commit again. Jen wants me to post about my dinner last night. I boiled yams then mashed them all up then put cheese on them and cooked them a little to make the cheese all soft and gooey and when I left to go sit in the living room and study while eating I put a dishtowel over them so Spike wouldn't get into them. So anyhoo, I come back to add my dirty dish to the pile around my sink and what is the little gremlin doing? He's sitting ontop of the dishtowel, mushing the cheese into the towel and upon further inspection, yams are oozing over the side of the dish to make way for his little kitten gremlin weight. I was so mad at him! He knew it and dashed ontop of the cupboards, the only spot I can't get him. He was up there for awhile. Gremlin. And funny enough, I realized I've been going about school all wrong. Don't expect good grades, like A's, cause then if you get a B, you get really upset; expect really bad grades like C's and then when you get an A, you are completely hysterical! (I keep on confirming my dork status, ala-Lisa, Florence, and I getting our group paper back and after weeks of complaining bitterly about it, with tension growing, flip to the back page where we see an 'a minus' written on it, and we all scream at the same time and start hugging, note this is while the rest of the class is still in attendence looking at their papers.) So yeah, finally some good stuff. Now I feel better about my stupid b midterm in english and I feel more confident about going and seeing the prof about it and improving my writing or what have you. Well, class starts soon so I should mosey on down. The homework assignment was brutual, but I did all the forumlas right, whether or not I came up with the right answer is another thing (this is stats). Here I go. Leone.

Crappity crap-crap

well, what a fun day. The h-drives are down! That means I cannot access any of my work on the school computers! Wonderful! I have a lab due by the end of today but hey, whatever! Nor can I go over my power point presentation for class tomorrow, nor can I work on anything cause I can't save it anyways. Okay, and I know some people may consider a B+ okay, and normally I would too, but when it's your favorite class and you think you did so well and 13 people in the class got A's and blah blah blah, well then a b+ sucks monkey. Seriously, bad day. And now, rather loud flippant girl is sitting across from me, being all flippant and loud. Quickly, toss you hair some more! See, now I'm all hyper critical and demeaning in my bad mood. I'm sure she's nice. (it doesn't help that she's wearing green) Well, maybe I'll go.... read some stuff or something. Oh yeah and Adrienne, I was repeating your '15 and legal' statement at the airport story to some friends and my friend, Joyce, totally agrees with you about Daniel Radcliffe. The other people there opted for silence on the debate. But hey, there you go. Talk to you all later, let's believe this day will only get better. Leone

Adreneline Junkie

That likely isn't spelled correctly, but eh. True through, I crave the rapid heartbeat, the twittering of fingers, the heightened senses, the rush! And just to let you know, yeah yeah, sure it's because I've been put on a puffer, but hey, that's kinda like sky diving or bungee jumping or such right? Seriously right now, I can't really sit still and my chair is kinda squeaky so I think I may be annoying other people. Eh. So in the midst of a 6 week midterm/paper fiasco in my classes. This is the week of two midterms, last week was a paper, the week before that was a midterm, and I have a midterm every week for the next two weeks so it's bonkers! I still seem to have enough time to watch the simpsons though. I've got season 1 on DVD, borrowed it from my landpeople. Did everyone know I bought a DVD player? It's a joy. (I feel so sad, nobody is sitting by me, I think it's the twitch) So Spike is all good from his surgery, he doesn't get to eat people food anymore which he is finding very upsetting and is constantly jumping up on the counters so I actually have to put food away now when I'm done with it. He loves the fireplace (as do I) the only problem is when it turns on at night, casting the living room in light for him to knock things off the desk and bookshelf.
My place is really coming along now thanks to the help of lots of lovely people. I just moved my computer from the kitchen table to an actual desk so there is a place to eat now at my place, oh so exciting! Heading back to Vernon on the 16th of December with Jen, though I don't know how long I'll be there for. I do have plans to kidnap Jolene for the holidays . Well, I suppose I should go study or something of the like. I'm very excited to see Sheena's blog! Talk to you later! Leone

Goodness sake it's snowing! How horrible! I had to walk today as I lacked change and last time the bus did not accept visa, but it was a good thing because University hill was backed up all the way to the lights! It was wretched, I am suprised there were not more rear endings and in the ditch cars (though there were alot of ditched cars) but one car would stall or something and because one lane was all the ditched cars, all the other cars would be stuck behind the stalled cars, causing all a complete standstill, then finally the one car would go, but three others would not be able to start up again. The bus was completely stranded. I think it eventually got up the hill though. And I enjoyed the walk, only took me an hour. I would have left sooner but I did not know that it was snowing till I went out to take the garbage out. It was scary and I had to phone my dad. Despite my pleads he would not come here and drive me to school. Oh well. I should go, I have a midterm in a bit. That weird kid is beside me again. Gosh he is strange. Well, I should go get myself some hot chocoo and than write some stuff about Blake. I'm writing about the presense of nature in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice which makes me very happy. I need to check out everyone's blogs when I get back, sounds like a lot has been happening. Thanks again to Cali and Scott for the desk! Loo of Loo! (Lots of Love) Leone.

Jen-I'm talking to you!

Hey, I played a little with the font on your suggestion and changed the smalls to meds in my body paragraph (large was wayyyyyyyy to large) so what I did was
body {
padding:40px 20px;
font:x-med "Garamond",Trebuchet,Verdana,Sans-Serif;
font-size/* */:/**/med;
font-size: /**/med;
so it's right at the beginning of the template. Okay, it took a little of fiddling but it seems to have worked out. Don't know if this helps you out any in concerns to the phone call last night about blogs (I'm started to get really addicted to this whole 'internet' thing) Okay dokey. And Saroj, that was so your post! Love love!

Oh my.....

so I wanted to create a link to other people's blogs on my blog right, but I figured I should ask permission first and everything, so I wrote it all in but instead of blogspot I just put blogpot cause I figured if someone clicked on it there would just be an error or something right? And I'm having trouble with Jen's blog title connecting onto ancient archives so I'm fooling around and I click on Jen's blog connection thingie and all of a sudden I'm taken to abundant bibles webpage! Holy crap! So then I go back and it circle zooms me back to my webpage, and I click on Jim's and it does it again! Bonkers I tell you! Bonkers! so anyhoo, funny as sin. And I'm not actually trying to make religious comments but I just read over then and realize I say those things a lot and in this theme of post it's kinda funny. Anyhoo, isn't that just crazy? Hm. Can anyone explain to me why that happens? Craziness I tell you! Craziness. Tsk Tsk.

Wednesday, October 13, 2004


Sigh Oh well, what a day. Just to note, see the time of this post? 8am in the morn! I've been up since 6! What is wrong with this? And you know what the scary thing is? It wasn't hard at all to get up! I'm turning into a morning person!!!!! Oh yeah, and yesterday, the two that from now on shall be called GIATS (grossly in-appropriate tounge suckers) were taking up the entire back row of seats on the bus! ack! Well, I should go hand in an excerise, study for my midterm, take my midterm, work (RA, not crappy greasy job which I don't have anymore), finish editing group paper, then sleeping and waking bright and early tomorrow to be sure! Why? Cause I'm a morning person! Whoohoo! Oh yeah, took Spike into the vet this morning and when he realized what I was doing, started hissing at me! Then when we got there, he hissed at the vet. I think he has some anti social tendencies. Well, hm. Good moo to bears! Is it snowing yet? I think I'm going to be Betty Page today.

Heehee..... dragons are cool

Yeah, so a little bit of fiddling with the templates and look what I did! Those dragons weren't here just awhile ago! Ah hahahahahhaha!!!!! This is too much fun. Wonder what else I can do. Okay, now I really do have to go write some words. Seriously now, no more playing.

Uber Photo

Mmmm.... I really like this photo. A lot of people don't know what I'm doing in PG, sometimes, myself included but then I go to school, and I'm like.... oh yeah. This is why. So I thought I'd throw in this skokum photo of UNBC. Um, new news in Leone-Space is Spike's funny little liver, Christmas presents are a go, Bjork's latest CD Medulla rules, and I got on as a temp research assistant which kicks total ass. Total. I still haven't found a theme for this place. I may one day make a new one that is all themed and funny. The Bears rock, they have it down to an art. You guys roole. Must go write some words.

Wednesday, October 06, 2004

um.... I put in a quote

Final blog of the day. I swear. I'm just gonna try this photo one more time. So....... letseehere..... That better have worked.

Well behaved women rarely make history.

Laurel Thatcher Ulrich:

Experimenting s'more

Hmm............. what else can work here. I was so mad, on my previous post I did all these tags and endtags and p and font and such. Useless I tell you, useless.
Anyhoo, I'm trying to see if I can put photos and such in posts....Hm...... Wonder if that worked. Incase it didn't I suppose I should put something interesting in the post. Um.... I have a bunion or something on the bottom of my right foot.

bloody thing

Okay, so we are going to try this again. I have completely deleted the first blog, but it isn't going away. Here is the one I wrote overtop of it, that would not show up.
Okay dokey, figuring things out alittle here. Just got my fave quote off to the side there for everyone to enjoy. (and by everyone, I mean not very many, as.... oh, two people (myself included) know about this blog?) So here it is, my first 'official' post to commemorate my half assed entry into this wonderful thingie we call the internet. New today, nothing much. Spike is at the vets for his big operation, I actually did my dishes last night before I went to bed, and I should really be working on my social psychology paper right now. Well, must go fool around some more and see if I can change this background and recruite some unsuspecting members. It's like a cult. And that makes me happy. So now my background is this crappy dot formula, very.... polka dot door-esque. Hope it's something different soon. Must stop babbling.
so.... let's hope this works, my patience and humour are waning.
