Pizza Diarist came over and made us pancakes! Some had chocolate chips in them which made them taste like big chocolate chip cookies. And that's supposed to be maple syrup, not beer. Now we're waiting to see who the supposed greatest Canadian is. Come on George Stombolopolousoidiazzcy!

I think this may be my best work ever. I guess I just needed to be inspired.

Hurts so good.

And by "Hurts so good" I mean, Hurts so bad.

Because of yesterday's spill, I am in serious pain and my right leg is so weak I'm having problems walking, standing, sitting and moving properly. The red lines indicate main areas of pain. I'm photographing the changes of colour in my bruise out of fascination. Also, in case I decide to sue my parents for having improperly de-iced stairs.

Stupid invisible 6 a.m. ice!

I'm the one with the red hair. My dad is the one with the yellow hair. Ouch. At least he had me to break his fall.

Damn. Why you gotta be like that?

This week I really hate Shoppers Drug Mart. Usually I quite like them. Nice, clean stores. But last week they put out a big Christmas catalogue with all kinds of stuff I could buy if I wanted. So I wanted to get something for one of my friends for Christmas, but alas, Shoppers did not come through. They did not have this advertised item in Glace Bay. They did not have it in Sydney. They do not have it in Sydney River or Dartmouth and I feel confident that neither Fenwick Street nor Spring Garden Road stores will have it either, since I know those stores rather well, and they never have this sort of item. Why do they advertise this but not actually have it anywhere? Actually Dartmouth had it (because it's a big fancy "new" Shoppers store), but sold out and won't be bothering to get it again before Christmas. Why bother? Why play with consumers like that? Jerks!

Three cheers for consumerism!

Today I went shopping with my parents in Sydney. I got a notebook at Frenchy's for 50 cents in which was inscribed the mess you see below. In case you can't pick it out, it once said "To Amanda, the best friend a gal can find anywhere. Love, Lori". I like to think a huge fight ensued, causing Amanda to never write in the nifty notebook, scribble out the note and toss it in a box destined for Frenchy's. Either that or Amanda was just really not creative in any way and couldn't think of a way in which to fill even one single page and crossed out the message out of embarrassment that her best friend obviously has no idea who she really is. My mom bought me a shirt, which is actually black, unlike the drawing. Then we all got some pizza to take home and eat. I also had a fortune cookie dipped in Belgium chocolate. I got two fortunes! One for each personality. One was something about how I will travel far and wide for both business and pleasure and the other mentioned something about how I was thinking of getting into something that would bring me credit. Probably just credit at Blockbuster. Although, since my crappy Zellers shirt fell apart, they did give me $24.95 store credit today! Then I spent (that is, my dad spent) $6 getting me super cool retro plastic garland dealies to put on my Christmas tree! They're white, not blue, as pictured. Now, I will go eat some of the remaining pizza, despite it's so-so sauce.

It was B-I-N-clap-O last night since I didn't win bingo. I was very close several times, which really just makes me a bigger loser. Also, I have a cold, which I also had last night, making bingo less than exciting, having to sniff constantly and never win anything for it. Then I went home and later ate a gingerbread man cookie my mom bought for me. It could be worse. I could be in Halifax with what I hear is copious amounts of snow everywhere, no bingo to even go to, and no gingerbread man to torture with my teeth and kill with my stomach acids.

If anyone's actually wondering, I'm mostly retching out crappy Paint sketches because the scanner here is just way too much effort.

Every time I sneeze my right eye twitches.

Cat Scratch Fever!


Fat Thumb Fever!

Saw "Sunrise" at the Khyber tonight. Silent movie with musicians playing music for it. I'm still not a saxophone fan.

Guess who!

This guy! Again! I saw him while I was on the way home from "The Incredibles", which was awesome. And I think they even had a nod to Heat Miser! Tonight he was in a coffee shop and it looked like he was with a friend. I have yet to see him front on. Would I even recognize him? I probably would and I'd yell something stupid like "You're that guy!" right in his face. So where will Waldo be next?... And why oh why did I have to draw his first picture on that off-white paper?...

Today I almost literally did nothing other than watch movies. So far, "Bullitt", "City of God", "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", the last 30 minutes of "White Squall" and probably something else pretty soon. All while lying on my too short and uncomfortable couch with neck pain that seemed to extend out through my ears, a headache and a stomach ache. Truly, this was a manic Monday.

Guess who I saw today! This guy! Today I was sitting in a car waiting for Pizza Diarist to get his laundry and this guy walked in front of the car. I saw him side on for a second while he looked both ways for cars. The smaller insert picture is from the first time I saw him. When will he appear next? Stay tuned!

Scaling down a large image makes it look not so hot. If anyone is interested, you can see a bigger (and slightly better) version of this picture here. Depending on your browser, you may have to hold your cursor over it until you get that little arrow dealie in the corner that makes the picture bigger.

Today I had blood taken from my freakishly large bright blue veins (3 out of 4 hospital blood takers comment on their size) and saw "Team America: World Police", deepening my already ridiculous admiration of Trey Parker and his song writing genius.

The Great Pumpkin didn't show up...

But the Great Bellyache did.

I ate boat loads of mini chocolate bars and rockets. Also some cake. I watched "The Nightmare Before Christmas", "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and "Garfield's Halloween Adventure". I carved Richie and Margot Tenenbaum-o-Lanterns and sliced open the top of my finger in the process. I turned on the orange lights on my balcony. I somehow pulled a muscle in the upper/middle/right side of my back. Happy Halloween!!
