>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.
>I apologize for the late night post! Last night when I got home I realised I hadn’t blogged yet, which would break my little unwritten rule about this whole thing. In any case, it was a little funny to write, and I encourage one and all to read it if you missed it! It’s got all kinds of fun things in it but does contain a leeetle amount of spoilers lol.
Today is odd.
We baked, which seems to be the weekend fun together. Rob had gone through my beloved Martha cupcake cookbook and has already started to tout my apparent “geniousity” around his office and to his friends…in other words, he wanted to top the banana muffins I sent him in to work with last week. He picked the red velvet cupcakes (after I explained what red velvet is), and the mint brownie ones. We cooked, and the apartment still smells of chocolate and my slight failure. That’s a fun smell! I’ve yet to frost the reds, I shall at somepiont this evening hopefully.
We started to watch the new episode of Big Brother on Rogers On Demand earlier as well, and it was at this point that I looked out the window to admire my plants which have sprung back from the fiery brimstoney near-death of yesterdays woefully inadequate watering schedule, only to see out of the corner of my eye a furry thing on my patio! I at first saw a chipmunk or squirrel. Then it turned into a raccoon. Then, upon further brain usage, I am fairly certain it was maybe a cat, given that it is a little bit afternoonish right now and the nocturnal denizens perchance haven’t awoken yet. I jumped up and got outside, and was sure it was then residing in the balcony of the tenants next to us, but Rob wouldn’t allow me to go make friends. Something about rabies I think it twas. Oh well. The little furry bastard ate half of one of my strawberries though! I hope the smarmy devil chokes on it and dies. Preferably in front of a small child or some some-what senior citizen, but only for the sake of it making the paper so I can at least place the article on my fridge door to punch every time I walk by. Or maybe affix it to a dart board so I may exact post-revenge on it as I please? I’m slightly mad because we harvested the first 2 strawberries off the plant the other day, and they were horribly sourish. So, maybe that’s a sign that I’ll awake to my neighbour shrieking in the middle of the night because of a curled up dead furry thing? Bah!
We also just finished playing Trauma Team for my Wii too (it’s kinda fun having 2 words with double vowels in them next to each other! Go grammar examinations!), but I’m thinking that the fast-paced-in-your-face action was too much for the poor boy…we only did 2 operations. Boo 😦
And currently, he is sitting next to me attempting to bury the hatchet with his foe the estranged Macbook, so I have a new toy to play as well! I think the thought was to give me something that I could start to go back to my sketching roots, with a possiblity of a tablet for drawing to be purchased down the road. I also wondered the other day about converting some drawn graphics to HTML for my blog design…hmm…. have to think about that!
Oh and I would like to re-point out my poll to the left, and also thank whomever voted! I’d still like to get lots more feedback folks regarding that and anything else about my blog, so keep reading and keep sending messages to me!
