Part of my 101 things in 1001 days is to learn a new word every day, so here's a new area of the blog so I can share these new words with you! I won't be able to update every day of course so you may get more than one every once in awhile but educational nonetheless! :)
Today's Word: Dullard- a person who evokes boredom.

Pre-Vacation Fun

The morning we left for the vacation, my cat discovered a wee baby mouse. However, since my cat isn't the brightest thing ever. He instead was more concerned with his toy spider than the mouse running through his legs. Eventually he noticed it, but instead of pouncing or hunting the thing like most cats would he sat and watched it, and just followed it around the family room with his nose to its tail. It stopped once; he licked it and then walked away.
I, to the horrid shock of my sister and brother, scooped it up in my hand and put it outside and the excitment proceeded to return to the looming family vacation.

Vacation blues... err greens

So we leave for our first family vacation ever in about 10 hours and for the past two hours I have had my head over the toilet. It would appear that I have the stomach flu.
This is not how this was supposed to go. I should have expected it though: my body seems to hate travelling. I tend to get a bit anxious and that seems to manifest itself through physical illness. Really sucks cause I do like to travel.
Oh well, I'll stick it out.
Sooo off to vacation we go, be back in a few days!

The Craziness

My little brother is currently running through the house yelling "The British are coming! The British are coming!"

Our van broke down today. Two days before the family vacation.

I played RockBand last night. I wasn't too bad.

My cat scratched my mother's very new and nice table, and broke a vase of her's this week. He's making enemies.

My sunburn has finally healed...ish. I think it's a little more brown then red or white now.

My vacation package information arrived: It's exciting! It came with coupons!

We're having thai food for supper, and then going to a movie!

Color Copy Cat

I seem to have this ability to sense what color someone else is going to wear on a particular day and then wear the same thing myself.
I have done this pretty much every sunday with my mother, I did it with Nessa the other night when we went out and several times this week with my co-worker.
The beginnings of this unsual tatent began a year back when I wore a very similar color as Dave! and the same necklace one night. :)
So I now ask my mother what she's wearing ahead of time and as for other people... oh well. Hopefully they won't notice!

In other news, my little brother overheard my mother and I discussing schools. He was very unimpressed to discover that some were far away. There were tears. I feel so bad. But I"ve promised frequent phone calls and letters so hopefully that'll help.

the ankle doth protest

So last time I was at physio, I was told I could start coming every two weeks. My bank account and my schedule were very happy about this. My ankle apparently felt like it deserved to stretch my budget even more and to continue the nice attention it gets every week. So it decided to start hurting me more than it's hurt in weeks. It's swollen, and so sore I can barely walk. Will it ever end?

More Tidbits

Yardsaling is fun. But having your own yardsale. Not so much.

I got a sunburn today. I didn't think it was too bad at the time, but now its turning out to be pretty bad. Ouch, my poor back.

A good friend of our family's has just been diagnosed with cancer. Top that with an 18 year old cousin who was killed in a car accident the other day. Gotta love that family tragedy.

I'm being talked into going to a wedding tomorrow... don't really want to go though. Mostly cause I don't have anything to wear. You don't give a girl only a day's notice for a wedding!

2 of my marks are in! Yay for not failing economics and for apparently doing quite well on my exam!

So my boss just decided that she doesn't want to do the fundraiser that I have spent the past week singlehandely planning. Needless to say I'm not very impressed.

My mother left a container of stew on the counter to be taken to the compost but it was forgotten about. This was 5 days ago. Needless to say, we have quite the little furry creature growing out of stew.

I went to our region's jail this evening for one of work's programs. It was enlightening and very eye-opening and I've changed my opinions on a few things for sure.

My marks for spring session still aren't in. And I'm getting a bit impatient. Tomorrow has got to be the day!

Johnboy and I hung out last night. It involved my getting terribled beaten in a couple games of air hockey. A very odd but okay movie. And a very long talk.

I'm about to tell lsgb something really big that I've been so scared to tell her. But I experienced a sort of closure on the issue today and I feel its time that and I need to tell someone who can reply immediately to me about what happened today. But here goes!

Oh and I really like the Buffy Series. Especially the David Boreanz part. ;)

I just off the phone with my eye doctor. I said "Thank you very much" and then proceeded to answer myself with a "You're welcome." *sigh...*

New Book!!

So I finally bought Shadowplay. I"ve been waiting for it to come out in softcover and to have some money. At least the first condition was fulfilled so I went for it. I am terribly excited to read it and am dropping "The End of Mr. Y" cause I really don't like it to read Shadowplay. Unfortunately I can remember very little from the first book, and since it's in my storage unit, in another city I can't reread it. So here's hoping it'll all come back to me as I read!


So I got up this morning and while putting on makeup discovered that pretty much over the past weekend my face has become covered in freckles. I always had freckles as a kid and I've gots lots on my arms but I haven't had freckles like this on my face in years! It's kinda rejuvenating though, I feel like a little kid again and it's kinda cute.
The summer has also turned my hair very red too which is also fun: I blend in my with my family a bit more now.
And hey, I have a tan! That's a first for me!

Good News All Around!

I got my LSAT score back. Much better than I expected. I haven't been this proud of myself in a very long time!
My apartment application was approved, so I have somewhere to live in September. Just gotta scrounge up the money for the security deposit now.
In twenty four hours I will be finished classes for the summer and will be celebrating Independence day with the rest of my foggy city via our Canada Day fireworks!
