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

What Classic Pin-Up Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla
Yeah. and three times over (so... in three different quizzes)Angel is my soulmate. Here's a clip from one of the quizzes.
Who's your male Buffy soul mate?
brought to you by Quizilla
It turns out I'm Willow, which made me sad cause I'd rather be Tara, but than I figured out, hey that means Tara loves me! So I'm good with that. I really liked this one too.
Wow, you *really* know everything about Buffy and
Angel! Yay for you!
(__/ The Ultimate Buffy & Angel Quiz \__)
brought to you by Quizilla
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)
Frosta. You are the empress of the northern
latitudes. You live in a world of ice and
shimmering snow. Your skills in ice magic are
strong. You may live in a cold world, but you
have a warm heart. You are a flirt.
Which She-ra Heroine are you?

ah well, must run off to class. I doubt this is the last we'll see of quizilla. Tata, LeoneorFrostaorWilloworAngelsluvah.

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.
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!

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!
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!

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

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!

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.

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.
