>This is my official 100th posting!
YAY!!!! Everybody cheer! Everybody celebrate! Everybody hit the bar! (And feel free to drink to excess, as it is a cash bar and the proceeds are putting me through school lol!)
I wanted to put things aside and just talk for a bit in summary of what’s happened the last Summer. Well, I started to blog as an idea from Rob, just after I got out of the hospital as a way to pass the time, and I latched onto it as a way to further different hobbies that I had, as well as help with the slightly annoying, yet oh so fun to talk about amnesia that I had been developing throughout the ordeal.
I’ve actually met a lot of people through this blog actually, and though not a lot of people read me yet (or at least I don’t think so anyways!), I’ve met some of Rob’s friends and strengthened new ones, as well as reconnected with those that I had lost touch with.
Everyone has apparently salivated over my kitchen endeavors, and I’ve basically been threatened by stapler point by some from various work environments (ahem…you know who you are!!) into bringing sugary morsels of fun to them.
I bought a new toy in my Bamboo Drawing Tablet, which, let’s be honest folks, wasn’t exactly necessary. But let’s face it, you’ve all grown to love my need for shopping and new toys right?
As I’ve stated, I used this platform to create new hobbies and to showcase some of my previously over-exaggerated ones. Cooking, drawing, and tv analysis (making fun of Rachael on Big Brother and her hahaHAhHSHhehsHAhHAShah’s counts right?). I even brought you all with me on my adventures through Amigurumi and all the stupid crocheting stumbles and follies.
I think those closest around me are surprised I haven’t geeked out more on here in regards to video gaming, but believe me, Animal Crossing and our slightly random and off-colour screenshots have not been whisked totally from our lives, and the new generation of Pokemon games are right around the corner………
You’ve seen our little empty apartment grow from a couple of boxes (ok, imagine for a sec!), and the Oasis and it’s semi-bountiful flora, evolve (lol…Pokemon!) into the humid and a little terrifying Rainforest! Quick, heads up!! There’s a lemur! Looks like a storm is brewing over the tv…
A big thing that was helpful was being able to vent and rant and cry and scream at you, the internet people everywhere, about my life, my pains, my re-adjustments to post life-threatening-happenings, my movie choices, and my boyfriend. Basically everything and anything that I feel is pissing me off. That was REALLY helpful!
In closing, the most fun that I’ve, and I’m sure most of you as well, had is definitely bashing said boyfriend. Let’s be honest…most of you just like to make fun of his kitchen mishaps, social awkwardness, and general lack of his surroundings. How many times have I told you that Rob has burned something, pissed me (and others off), fallen, knocked something over, broken something…and I could go on, but I may be talking about future postings now! LOL! Face it, with Rob, it’s going to happen. But that’s one of the reasons we love him isn’t it? In all seriousness, I do have quite the affection towards the boy, and for those of you who’ve yet to meet him, he is honestly someone whom you would have in your corner if given the chance. He’s one in a trillion!
In closing, though I realise that I’ve only had your attention for a fraction of your minute, your day, your week and month, (or even of your three months, come to think of it!), I sincerely hope you have enjoyed yourself! Please do continue to laugh riotously, side splinteringly, and milk spewingly, and remember to leave your feedback!
Keep your eyes glued to your Facebookers and your Twitterers, you never know what may happen to me! (Really! Remember I had emergency surgery that one time, and god knows it would happen again to me! Those that were around for that one fill the others in about the morphine-induced texting! Hilarity in one’s palm!)
Here’s to another 100!*
* If I shot for any higher, I’d have to start charging admission.
>So, as some of you know, today was the day I went to see the doctor. I’ve been off since May 27th due to an emergency operation that I needed to have for a collapsed lung. I’ve been home since I’ve been out of the hospital, and thank god that I have people like my friends and family around me.
And Rob too:)
Just a short update on that, as I’m not going to wax poetic about the rather technical results, other than for the most part I’m ok. The problem now is basically tied to my sleeping, and a lot of it is due to my (rather traumatic) stay at the Chalmers.
But I digress. Rob is dissapointed that my doctor isn’t accepting new patients, as my doctor is awesome lol. She even visited me on her days off at the hospital (I’m told…I actually don’t remember) to make sure that I was ok, even though she has her own practise outside of the hospital. She’s super nice, and has lead me wrong about zero times. If only I could redo her office….and rooms….they’re pretty bland.
Afterwards, and due to a little sluthing online and at stores, we made a stop at Zellars as they had super cheap potting soil. I know, I’m a little wierd to be getting excited over dirt, but remember, I’m also a little weird for having over 60 plants on my balcony. So it’s not entirely THAT weird per sey. Besides, at 3 bucks a bag, I needed to buy some for when the plants resume day-to-day activities after their summer vacation.
My poor neighbours. They never stood a chance once I started tomatoes from seed unlike themselves. Oh well, they could always attempt to beat me next year, when I’m not sure if I’ll be here to compete in the gardening olympics. But, that would be the only way they could win, right?
I’ve been drawing since I got home pretty much, getting ready for my next big update to the site. Stay tuned, and I promise that SOMEDAY I’ll be satisfied. Ok, well, you can hope.
PS. Rob made me grilled cheese!
