in the meantime, take off your backpack, spacehog

blogger is being mean and i’m not really appreciating it. i completely deleted a post and it’s still showing up, my sidebar is all wonky, fonts are big n small all over the place….and if you’re viewing on a mac the background gets cut off half way down the page. i am not very pleased.

I am a princess. All girls are.

Thanks to blankbooks I did a The Classic Dames Test.

Katharine Hepburn

You scored 19% grit, 38% wit, 38% flair, and 11% class!

“You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.”

I’m such a freakin’ sucker for these test-thingers :p

Oh, and to complete the quote that makes up the title of this entry….Sara Crewe: “I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses. All of us. Didn’t your father ever tell you that? Didn’t he?”hehe i know it’s cheesy but my momma will say there’s nothing wrong with it!!

Edit: I j ust told Laura I wanted a Giant M&M (she mis-read and thought I said ‘Giant Man’ but that’s beside the point) so I Google Image searched ‘Giant M&M’ and came up with this… SWEET! Litereally!

check your coat and your liver

i must be getting old… i slept in a little (or was it that i just took a lil extra time getting ready this morning, either way) i took the bus into work. down robson, turn onto granville and voila. as we’re turning the corner onto Granville i started thinking about all the night clubs. being in a night club after the ugly lights come on is like watching a movie and then the set/backdrop is removed and you’re not actually on the French Riviera, you’re in Studio B and there’s Bob the gaffer over there eating a donut.

Not to say clubs on granville compare to the French riviera… but I was thinking, while on the bus, which is why i started writing this, i was thinking…imagine being a club owner… you have this nice lil place, you stock it full of booze and nummy things, you want people to come over and play and then they just flood the bathroom and vomit everywhere and leave it all for you to clean up at the end of the night. gosh, i mean really. although i’m sure most club owners are more than happy to sell booze to 16 year olds and fill them with so much that they vomit everywhere…because the $$ coming in from sales is sure enough to cover the carpet cleaning expenses. but it’s just the principle of the thing eh? come here! have fun! intoxicate yourself to the point of tummy-contents-hurling, thanks for stopping by! Let me clean that all up and have this all ready for you again next week 😀

wow, club bashing….i am getting old….

clean your act up like your big brother bob

i need a hair cut. it’s past the point of touching up, or trimming …or just styling, it’s pretty much out of necessity. i’ve never in my life grown my hair this long. it’s always started to annoy me, once it got to shoulder length. i thought i would try something different for a while, and a while turned out to be a couple years. not that it’s been a couple years since my last cut, but a couple years since my last ‘i can’t take it anymore take off 5 inches!’ cut.
getting away to ‘america’ with my sis tonight. going to bellis fair to pay off our debts at victoria’s secret. we’re suckers for all the selection, the low prices and things that just tend to fit like a glove. not to mention the selection!! it’s really tough to find ‘good’ things to wear. we’re just waiting for the greater Seattle area or even Vancouver to get an H&M. Cheap, comfy, mmmm.

we’re not TOTALLY fashion crazy. if it’s in style we won’t wear it JUST BECAUSE it’s in style even though it’s ugly. don’t get me started on Ugg boots or Lululemon pants AHHH! We wear it because it’s comfy, looks good, is in style and well, it looks good. why wear something because it’s JUST ‘in style’ but is completely hideous and is totally unflattering? ie. robin hood/pirate boots over top of your skin tight tapered jeans, which makes ya look like a lumpy golf tee – your upper torso and head being the ball! Ahem…anyway….

best look ever that will never go outta style? t-shirt and favourite pair of jeans. amen.

i'm already feeling better

Went out for dinner and drinks last night with my sister and her husband. Hon’s is a great place. We were discussing how there’s so much hustle and bustle, people everywhere, what would seem like chaos (with so many orders and the timeliness of each and so many people) but there isn’t… Someone is there right away to pour you some tea, you order and within a few mins all of your dishes are sitting in front of you. Not sure who our actual waitress is or how our order got to the kitchen. All we know is that it will be correct, yummy, hot and very delicious every time.

It’s Jen’s bday soon so we were thinking of places to go…I ought to think of something really nice and lovely for her since she always organizes something for my bday. She likes planning surprises or events or little things that make you feel so special. Have I mentioned she’s a fantastic mom?

I can’t head into town to see her or my family tonight (not even the lil kiddies) because I’m on call for work. Oh well, it’s a lump of extra cash in my pocket and I’m sure I’ll catch them all next week. Same time, same place, good food and family. Seems like I don’t always have to travel back into my hometown to find that, sometimes… all that just comes to me.
