11:55 pm - Robert Galore. Lovely Lovers. Mwah.
Well. I forgot the password to this thing for the longest time, so it's been a while since i've updated. I finally un-lazied myself and pressed that little button that sent me my password to my email. Hurrah.|
Life is busy, things are going pretty well. Pretty damn well? Dunno if the damn tells that it's too well. Anyhow. Things are fine and dandy.
I got back about a week ago, and after 10 weeks of vacation from work, i asked for another week off. What they hey. Plus, it's film festival time. I needed some time to recuperate before classes, and some good old quality time with Yorkville.
Last night March and I went to the private Bedouin concert at the Berkeley Street church. We just rocked out and chilled to the music, it was beautiful. I was so surprised at how young they were. I mean, i always knew they were young, but just seeing them there, t'was surreal.
Today i went downtown with Corey in the morning, whereafter she ditched me to go out with her boyfriend and i went to see Robert Downey Jr alone. I didn't have too much hope, besides the fact that i met him exactly 2 years ago to the day, almost to the hour, but once again, i don't know how i manage these things. Honestly. I must have some radar that they can tell how much i love them, because Victor, Robert, and Kiefer... it's worked for all three of my honeys so far.
I was there waiting about 2.5 hours before the movie started,
so i got a good spot waiting, right at the rail. Robert and Susan (his
wife of 12 days... so far) came a bit later than the others... Val Kilmer
had already been there about 10 minutes before they showed up. And
wow, Robert and Susan looked great and so totally in love. I am in awe
of them. Robert kept kissing her all through the interviews, and her
hand was constantly on his butt... it was really quite cute, but something
that could also get quite nauseating if you had to see it constantly.
Anyway, Robert was wearing black dress pants, black dress shoes,i
think a black shirt, with a grey suit jacket on top. He looked phenomenaly
gorgeous, i could feel myself choking up. His hair was all scruffy and
he was just... himself. Pure Robert, and that's the only way i'll take
it. That's why i love him, and that's why i was there waiting. At first he came
out wearing glasses, much like the Gucci GG1181's that he wore on
Ally, but he took them off before i could get a picture. He signed
some things for a few girls at the end, and kept doing interviews.
When he got to my area, i stuck out this enlargement i have of me and
him together two years ago, and he grabbed it and took it to show to
Susan, who was like aww.... that's so sweet! Then she asked me when it
was, and i said at the Singing Detective premiere 2 years ago. I even
wore the same Robert Downey Jr shirt that i got signed by him the last
time, and when she saw it she again commented on how sweet it was, and Robert
just winked at me.
Lol. Anyway, Robert was still holding onto my enlargement (which is also
plaqued, by the way), and then proceeded to kiss me in the picture
(hehe... i think i died and went to heaven there), and then
looked at me and did a funny and suggestive raise of his eyebrows (jokingly, of course).
I started laughing and he asked if i wanted him to sign it,
as i had forgotten to give him a sharpie. So i said yes!! and he
signed it, and i then asked for a quick picture which i got. I thanked him and he
moved on. While he was doing other interviews, i got a brief chance to
talk to Susan and congratulate her on the wedding and tell her that
they made a great couple. She really is just so beautiful, and so
sweet and supportive of Robert. They are really lucky to have found
Anyhow, i'm hoping that my picture with Robert does turn out, and if
it does, i'll be posting it here. I also got some other pictures of
Robert, and perhaps one of Susan, but i'm not sure of that.
(Below is picture of Robert (teh sexxahhh) with Michelle Monaghan and Val Kilmer)
Kiefer comes on Monday, then Colin on Tuesday! Leonard Cohen both Monday and Tuesday, and i'm still not 100% on Vince Vaughn yet.
Life is grand when the film festival is in town!

5:35 pm - Victor
I just found out the best news in the history of the world. Ever. I don't think hearing anything else could have made me feel happier, because i can't imagine being more excited and happy right now. Victor Garber is coming to London, so i will be seeing him 1 week today. Can you believe it? I can't. Just hearing that i will be seeing him again made me so unbelievably happy. Meeting Kiefer has nothing on the happiness that i feel now, i'm sorry to say. I can't believe it. My trip is going to be the best thing ever.

5:08 pm - Kiefer (x3)
So the last two days, Michelle and i have been up at 6 both days for one reason: to see Kiefer one last time. Monday morning, we awoke at 6, and went downtown where we ran into security man, who said they were just setting up the shoot. We did the same thing this morning and went down, only to find out that they didn't start right in the morning, but at 2:30. Security man turned out to be Dean, an amazing guy who took a lot of prodding to tell us details, but was sincerely a nice man trying to balance his job and his desire to help us out. Then came along Reggie, who totally told us everything and brought us drinks. We met up with two other girls... something with an H and Karen, so we had a quadruple posse. I was such a bitch though and wouldn't tell anyone else any details, because Dean wanted us to try and get people away, so i did. |
Anyhoo, so 2:30 rolls around (yes, 5.5 hours of sitting on a sidewalk in this sweltering heat) and we see Michael Douglas get out of his Chrysler, no one calls to him (we don't care). Eva gets out of her car, no one cares, again. I should mention there were 4 other girls there as well, so 8 of us in total. I see some guy walking down the sidewalk and i'm like man... that has to be Kiefer, the way he looks and carries himself. And lo and behold, it is. He walks up to the set and i just called out if we could get some pictures, and he was like sure! he was in a good and relaxed mood, he took his time with us, gave us pictures, signed things. He re-signed my photo to Barbara, all my best, Kiefer Sutherland. Then i got a picture. He was wearing a short sleeved worn blue shirt and you could see all his tattoos. Now, i don't ussually like tattoos, but he's hot, so his tattoos are hot too. Anyhoo, everyone else got pictures and autogrpahs and i took pictures of him signing and the like. He was so cute and so shy. I was trying to get a pic of him and Michelle but i was shaking and gah. It was awful. But i was like, we're probably as nervous now as you were accepting your star at the gala on Sunday. And he started laughing.
After he left, i went to thank Dean and Reggie and wanted to get them something as a token of appreciation, so we asked them if they wanted slushies or iced caps or something, and they both wanted iced caps. Our foursome went to timmys, pitched in and bought them iced caps and we went back, where Kiefer was lounging around outside smoking, but we let him relax and just walked by and smiled. The man needs some privacy, afterall. Lol. But i'm done. I've gotten my Kiefer quote (3 times in 11 days) and i'm happy with my meetings, very happy.
I totally didn't notice during, but Kiefer wore his aviators throughout the meetings. The picture of him and myself turned out well, i'm very content. We're about the same height with me standing up straight. What a sexy man :D
current mood: beyond happy

I TOTALLY just met Kiefer Sutherland again. Today was the Canada walk of fame, which didn't start til 4 but i was downtown waiting at noon. I walked out and there was hardly anyone there, except Michelle, who i immediately recognized. Anyhoo, so turns out she has an extra ticket to the red carpet, and i was like whhhat?? YEAH! So it was basically me and her, all day long. We met Alanis Morrisette (i've always had trouble with which letters are doubled in her name) michael buble, and paul anka. but we didn't care.
Well, what happened is Kiefer stepped out of the car with his mother. (Shirley Douglas, old actress) and started walkig down. About 10 people short of Michelle and myself, he switched over to the other side. I was like Noooo!!! Kiefer!!! There were hundreds of people there, almost every.single.one.of.them was there for Kiefer. It was bizarre. I had no idea he was so popular, but hundreds of screaming fans, i felt so bad for that sexy man. Lol. Anyway, so we totally missed him the first round, but then while he was being interviewed at the non-cool people... i mean, in the press crowd, we started a Kiefer chant and everyone was yelling KIEFER! KIEFER! KIEFER! KIEFER! at the same time so he came back out and everyone was going wild. He again stopped about 10 people short of us and crossed over, and i was like WTF, that's it! I started yelling stuff like give us over here some lovin' and just yelling for him to come over, and he turned around and walked right over to me. Lol. He signed my picture of me and him and his smile was just to die for. And he said thanks for coming out and supporting me, and then Michelle got autogrpahs and then we were swarmed, and he had to go. So really, it was a brief meeting, but i got so many fucking sexy pictures of him, and me and Michelle talked about him the whole way home and smiled and laughed and went nuts. Our cheeks hurt cause we were smiling so much. Anyway, it was crazy cool.
Well, i'll post the pic here, too.

11:29 pm - Cottage and New Blog
I spent another 2 days up at Corey's cottage. Did some funness and lots of watching of SATC and Adam Sandler movies. We watched a beautiful sunset from the observation tower in downtown Parry Sound. We sat in the hottub at night and watched the shooting stars - i saw 3, and forgot to wish on every single one of them. it was the craziest thing ever, thinking about how we're just floating around in the universe amongst billions of stars, many of which no longer exist, but we can still see them. it just blew my mind.|
I made a travel blog that i'll update when i'm on the road with what i'm up to. The address is here:
i'm rewatching 24 from season 1 right now.

12:48 am - Kiefer, baby!
2 days of hunting Kiefer Sutherland paid off! I met him! And got a picture with him!
I went out to Port Credit where i heard that they were filming and walked around for 8 hours looking for the set. Plus a 2 hour bus ride there, and 2 hours home. Not pleasant. This was Thursday. I found nothing. Friday morning, woke up earlier and went again, and then had better luck. After about 2 hours of walking, i found the crew. Of course, they wouldn't tell me where the set was, but i followed my intuition. (sort of). It's a super long story. I walked up and down this one ginormously long street about 3 times before giving up when this guy pulled over and was like you're getting your exercise today! i must have seen you walk up and down a million times! And i was like oh, yeah well i'm looking for this film set... and he was like really? i'm working on the crew. And he pointed me out in the direction. So i kept walking and walking until i found it. FOUND IT! These guys stopped me and were like hey, this is what you were looking for? we've seen you walking all day. And i was like... yeahhh... and they asked who i wanted to see, and i was like Kiefer! So they're like oh, well he drives a Cadillac CTS 300 in blue and blah blah blah, he would be here at 2:30. And lo and behold, it was 2:00. I was like SWEET! And then i asked if they'd let me hang around the set, and the guys were like for sure! Yesterday they let people go all the way in.
Anyway so i went and stood there for a long time. They didn't end up coming until about 4 oclock. Eva Longoria (beautiful girl from Desperate Housewives) pulled up and i got her to autograph my wallet and i played with her dog a little bit (even though i dislike dogs). When Kiefer drove by i was way too flustered to stop him so he got by me and they then wouldn't let me on set. So i had to wait. I sat down and watched about 2 hours. It started to rain. This guy who lived across the street from the shoot (it was a little crescent with about 5 houses and the whole street was blocked off) invited me onto his property, so the cops who wouldn't let me through couldn't do anything. He gave me a chair to sit on his lawn and brought me water and everything. I was like DUDE! You are awesome!!! Anyhoo, so i kept inching closer to the set and decided to go across the street to the house directly beside the shoot to make friends. We chatted a while, and i met the director and Kiefer's best friend and the coach of the toronto argonauts whose house it was where i'd gone to make friends. A security guard eventually came and said i wasn't allowed there, but i was like i'm with Mr. Shannon (who was the man who'd given me chair and water) who'd told me if anyone gave me problems to just say i'm a family friend. Anyhoops, so the security guard was like fine, go to Mr. Shannons house. So i went back to my lawn, but Donna (argo coach's wife) called me back over and was like don't worry.
I made friends with the whole crew, and so they all knew what a big fan i was of Kiefer's so every time one of them walked by me they'd be like Kieeeefffeerrrr. Lol, it was hilarious. Anyhoops, Donna was on a mission to get a picture of me with Kiefer, so the director told us they were breaking at 7. So Donna and I stood in front of Kiefers car and he came out and i asked for a picture. Donna was like "this girl came 2 hours by bus to see you!" And Kiefer was like wow! and all flustered and stuff. And Donna had problems with my camera so i had to help her out with that, and i didn't get to talk to Kiefer much at all. I got the picture and then shook his hand and was like congratulations on the Canada Walk of Fame... i'm going to be there cheering you on! and he said something along the lines of thanks so much, it was nice to meet you, adn then got in his car. He's kinda short. My height-ish. And he was smoking. I hate smoke, but i knew he smoked already beforehand. I thanked Donna and her husband and Mr. Shannon and i took off, happy with my day. Michael Douglas, Kim basinger, and Eva Longoria also walked out with Kiefer but i took no notice of them, i had eyes only for my man.
My thoughts on Kiefer: Not anywhere near as nice as Victor Garber, but that can be expected considering he probably gets people like me coming up to him all the time and is a lot more famous. Overall, a very decent guy though that gives his fans the time of day. I'm very happy i went to all the effort to find him, even if my legs are no longer functional.
And to top it all off, i went straight to Brad's and we went to see the Longest Yard.

9:21 pm - spring, how i missed you.
Today was such a beautiful day. 15 degrees out. Sunny, i have my iPod back. I so enjoyed walking to the bus stop and listening to music. and then listening on the bus and in class and in between classes. I couldn't find my converses for the life of me today and was 20 minutes late leaving cause i was desperate to find them, it just seemed like a day that i had to have them. Anyway, a great day. Handed in my essay, so that's over with, Lonny gave us an extension on our Russian exam from Thursday to Monday so i no longer have to cram today and tomorrow. Instead i came home and watched Gilmore Girls :D Work was good too. I bought Brad a lifesavers storybook because i know how much he loves them, and they were only a dollar. I'm so gonna just relax tonight. I love being able to do nothing.

2:15 am - 10 month mini-reunion
tonight was a perfect night. i had reservations about going out tonight, considering i've got an essay due tuesday which i have still barely started, but i'm so glad i went. Corey came by to see me at work today just to tell me about her 2 hook ups that she had last night... and as she put it, the night had it's ups, and not so ups. Anyway, i got home from work, tried calling Zach serveral times to come out to dinner but i think that he's out of town this weekend or something, i couldn't get a hold of him. Anyway, so Corey came by around 7 and we just chilled and talked and listened to music, and she attacked me yelling i love you barbie! and seriously, almost snapped my neck, but it was too sweet for me to be angry. she kept staring at my boobs and told me how proud she was of me that i've finally grown some boobs. It's true, and i'm damn proud of it. |
Anyway, so we watched a bit of anchorman and then went over to her sisters where she got her ready for bed while i watched old school for the billionth time. then we went to pick up dane and went to meet everyone at jack astor's. the whole way i was marvelling at how perfect the moon was, and how there were actually stars out for a change. We got to Jacks, and everyone was already there and it was a flurry of happiness and hugs and loudness with everyone staring at us. There weren't many of us, just me, Corey, Dane, Johanna, Arla, Alex and Danika, but it was great seeing old faces. We talked throughout dinner and i had a very embarrassing moment when, our supremely hot waiter, was walking away johanna gasped and was like you totally just leaned over and checked out his ass! And yeah, he overheard. I didn't really mind just cause he was hot, but it was still kinda embarrassing, so i cuddled with Dane all night and pretended that he was my boyfriend. We stayed there for over a good two hours before Corey had to go - it was Jess's birthday and one of the guys she'd hooked up with was there, so she left and the rest of us headed back to Dane's. After many illegal u-turns and speeding supremely, we arrived in one piece. We went into Dane's living room and his sister was watching SNL and i took out Dane's guitar and took some requests for songs and i played and we sang, it was great. Then i headed downstairs to dane's room cause i'd noticed it was after midnight, and it's aaron's birthday so i sent him an email... it probably shows that i sent it to him on the 26th cause it was only just after midnight on the 27th here, so i hope he doesn't think i don't know his actual birthday. anyway, dane came down to find me just as i was finishing the email so i just sent it off, and i was cold so we went to Dane's room and huddled under the covers where everyone eventually joined us. Dane pulled out his laptop and we began to play music.
We played yellow card, the shins, the postal service, five for fighting, incubus, jimmy eat world, damien rice, goldfinger... youth. mine and dane's summer song. And then dane put on that graduation song by vitamin c and we all linked up and we were lying buried under the covers listening to that song and absolutely everyone was singing and i got such chills - it was surreal. it was... i don't know how to explain it. seeing and being with everyone back here, i'm really sad to be leaving this summer. Johanna said that if she moves back to Toronto, she needs a roommate and asked me to think about it, but i'm not sure cause i really want to do australia next year, but i told her if she's serious about it, give me more information so i can decide. So yeah, at around 2:00 Johanna decided we'd better go if she were going to arrive home awake, so we took off. Johanna drove me home and we talked the whole way... everyone agrees that in high school we've had our best moments so far. Except for dane who's had a lot of indecent moments and has very much enjoyed screwing as many girls as possible... haha. But he still says high school had the best times. Anyway, i'm feeling really melancholy and tired, so i'm off.

11:05 pm - The Road Home
Okay, seriously - Victor gave his fans a present even though it was his birthday. HALF of Alias
was his tonight. I mean it. The only two story lines were one with
Sydney, and one with Jack. He had an incredible night. From cream suit
(DROOLNESS) to getting beat up, to protecting Syd, to killing his
friend and looking downright fucking sexy while doing so. That may be
wrong, but man... this man defies rules. The episode was good, i
thought Sam was supremely adorable. From how innocent and Naive he was,
to commenting on how much he loves Syd's smile and dimples ("I never do
this, but..." "I have a boyfriend" "Oh. Of course you do." And Sam
shooting a gun just made me roll with laughter. It was so cute. It was
like what i would do. Anyway, so the ending was the unlitmate supreme-o
part where my eyes watered and spilled over. I won't call it crying,
cause i wasn't crying... it was just tears of sheer happiness. |
Jack was back from his mission, Syd literally just came back from hers,
walking in as Jack's walking out (looking gorgeous in a suit, red tie, and long black trench coat)and this is how it goes:
"Hey dad, i heard you located Korchev"
"Yes, i did."
"Sloane said he was taken on a standoff... were you there?"
"I saw it play out." (LIAR! Hahaha. When syd finds out she'll be maaad)
*nods* "Heading home?"
"Yeah, I'm going to grab some dinner first"
"Good night." (He begins to walk out, past Syd and to the doors)
*Syd pauses... reflects, turns around* "Dad!"
*Jack stops, turns around*
"I'm kinda hungry myself.. if you wouldn't mind the company"
*Talk about a surprised look* "What about your report?"
and then... BIG SMILE FROM JACK!!! Followed by an even bigger one from Syd.
She catches up to him, and they start walking, and she LINKS her arm
through his as they walk, they reach the door, and he puts his arm
around her waist, guides her through the door, and they leave.
This is where my happiness overtook reason. I bowed down and thanked
the God that is JJ, the God that is Victor Garber, and the God that
created the bond and chemistry between Jen and Victor. Those two were
made for each other. (In a PURELY platonic way, otherwise that would
not be right.)
In order to fully comprehend why this exchange was so shocking, i'll
tell you all this. Victor Garber as Jack had only smiled a grand total
of 4 times in 3 years... this episode, we happened to get two, one
right before he killed his friend, which was great cause we saw some
teeth in that smile. But other than that, he smiled episode 107 when
Syd brought him Turkey, he smiled when Will accused him of kidnapping
him in 120, he smiled a kind of bashful smile in 209 when he and Irina
were telling the drunken toaster story to Sydney, and Jack was saying
that Syd had sundaes at the summit every night for a week...
(melancholy smile, come to think of it). We got what could barely be
called a smile through all of that facial hair in 301 after Syd came
back and Jack was like... Sweetheart, you look so beautiful. Gah.
Smile. Finally Syd and Jack's relationship, the BEST one is back on
track. Again, happy birthday to Victor... i'm so crazy on Wednesdays because of Alias. i think i shouldn't be allowed to talk to people. But Victor in cream... droolness.

Okay, that is it. I'm so gone. I went to travel cuts today and picked up so many brochures, and i want to go everywhere. Then as i was walking home i realized... well, i had no idea what i wanted to do in university, i'm so lost as to what i should major in, and then i realized... i should just take languages! then i can just travel and travel and travel. i want to still learn swahili and german, and i think i should pick up spanish just because it's such a widely spoken language and i'm dying to go to south america. But... i realized that i needed to something in travel, and lately i feel like i've just been wasting my life. I feel like i'm not doing anything with my life, so i think i should start doing exchanges. I'm definitely set on doing the Australia swap program 3rd year... just take the year off and work there. I'm not sure whether i want to do just the australia swap, or the australia/new zealand swap, because that's another place i'm dying to go to. i want to go everywhere. if i won the lottery, i'd leave and never come back. i think next year's going to be my last year in toronto. then australia, and maybe i'll do 3rd year on an exchange. i need to get out of here. when i think about it, travelling and the beauty that i get to see is one of the only things that makes me really happy... i think i should go with that.

10:50 pm - Victor is sooo hot
I realized that it's been a while since i've recapped Alias to myself to wage my reaction... even though I rate The Index at a 10/10. Any episode with Victor in glasses getting beat up with a gun is fucking hot. Okay, maybe that didn't come out right. Victor wearing glasses, and his feet being filmed (oh those beautiful 13 and a halfs) was uber hot. AND him getting beat with a gun while being tied to a chair (my version of him being tied to a chair would be a whole lot different) was also very hot... he was so manly and took the hits and didn't break. And he had beautiful bruises all over his face. I realize that i am sounding like a spaz, but i'm telling you... this is what Alias and Victor does to me! I can't help myself! Especially since i've just watched the episode, i'm still pretty hyper.|
So. This episode was a TOTAL recall to Page 47. I honestly had to leave the room at the scene where Syd's in Sloane's room corrupting his decoder. It was too much suspense for me to bear... covering my eyes would not suffice, so i left and watched the tv backwards in a picture frame. But Jack going on about the hybrid car was hilarious. I rolled off my couch. Sydney bashing in the windows of the SUV and writing OIL KILLS on the side was also great... and mentioning that she has a hybrid... way to go! Anyway, fantastic episode... i can't wait to see next week what Jack and Sloane's end game is.

9:14 pm - smiley
Today was fantastic. I don't think i stopped smiling all day. I've been donned "Smiley" because everyone claims that i'm always smiling. Which is interesting... i didn't notice it until this morning. I think it's the coffee in the morning... i'm always smiling right off the bat in Russian class. I think it's the Mike and Lonny combination that gets me going. Talk about major drool fest. Plus, Lonny's always smiling at me smiling cause it's absolutely incessant. But today was very funny... i was laughing so hard i thought i'd start crying. Kim was saying how she had a twin sister, and Lonny was asking her how old her sisters were. And Kim's like 20... this went on like round the cout questioning for honestly like 2 minutes with Kim getting increasingly frustrated when he asked what's your other sisters name? And finally i was like SHE DOESN'T HAVE ANOTHER SISTER! but i was laughing so hard i guess it caught on, or else everyone was already laughing... anyway. i love brad. i love troy. i love march. I no longer am not liking Music World, because they liven up my day oh so much. First of all, even if Troy is gay, there is just something about him that is so cute. He's such a cutie. And i found myself saying that throughout the day. Except we keep talking about how hot Jennifer Garner is... i know that doesn't mean he's not gay, but he was wrestling me over a picture of her. Anyway, entirely possible, but he was also talking about his ex girlfriend which makes me go... okay... And Brad. Brad is just... so cool. I lent him my Alias season 2 and he finished it in 2 days. He is my hero. He is the only person that is as crazy as me. I think my record is higher than what averages out to be for him 11 per day, but still. He is completely head over heels in love with Alias. I was like WHAT DID I TELL YOU??? Best show EVER! so i've converted another one. As usual me and Brad just stood and talked almost my whole shift which is uber fantastic, and then the grammy cd came on with that josh groban you raise me up song. Anyway, Brad's like damn i hate this song. Then he told me about how the other day he was talking to March, and he was like March... you raise me up. And then March was like dude, i'm flattered but that's just wrong. Then Brad really thought about what he said and started laughing. He told me and i was near crying with laughter. I messaged March saying March... you raise me up. and March was like what?? are you drunk? hahahahaha. I think i very much like March.

what a relaxing day and weekend. it's one of those great days, you're happy, it's nice out, sun is shining and you have nothing to do but lie around, listen to music and think.|
"troubles are brought back by you, funny how we go down, we go anywhere but to the ground"
i pulled up my big brown comfy chair to my computer and i'm lying reclined, listening to music, reading, chatting with people and i feel so at ease right now... i wish i had this feeling always. mayday came on and i wanted to cry. i got all misty eyed just cause everything seems so good at the moment. what a great feeling.

Adam Sandler is my hero. he is absolutely fantastic, so damn hot. i've just been waiting for this movie for so damn long cause he is just great. the movie had everything. romance, comedy, it was so full of emotion. i was crying, laughing out loud... and adam just stole the movie away. (my breath too). anyway, me and corey nearly died laughing driving home listening to take me out by franz ferdinand... we made up this super crazy dance and we were going nuts in her car. i've been done my exams 11 days now. i sleep at 3 am wake up whenever i have to go to work and take off. i haven't seen bonnie in almost 2 months. she and corey are fighting, and i just naturally side with corey. |

it's been a while since i've updated here. i have an exam friday which is why i haven't been around much. i also had an essay due on tuesday... wait that was yesterday, and a supposed russian exam yesterday. but lonny never showed up so it ended up being this morning. many, many people were very mad at him but i couldn't give a shit. here's the uber funny email he sent out:|
Subject : I suck!!!
yes I do, ladies and gentleman.
this message is intended for the 9:00 class only.
I am so so so so so so so so sorry that I missed your exam this morning. It's entirely my fault, I f***ed up.
The exam is rescheduled for tomorrow (wednesday).
If anybody will have a problem writing at that time, such as another exam later in the day, please see me about it.
till tomorrow (I promise!)... L.
Hahahahahahahaha i had a very good laugh at this. anyway, i should get back to studying soon. i'm done in one week so i don't want to slack off now (even though i already am). i watched Lost tonight... it was good. that's a great show. i love it more and more every time i watch. I'm dying with Mike too. some days i can't even look at him cause i'm too embarassed and i don't want it to look like i like him so i don't really pay any attention to him... like i don't say hi when he comes in or anything, so he's probably like wow... she's schizo. i walked with him on monday. well, max was there too but i was trying to ignore that fact. he walked with us to our eco class. i heart him. i really do. i'm pretty unfazed by these exams considering last time i was freaking out. i think i realized they weren't as hard as i thought they'd be (except for that 56% in psych.... eek.) but now i'm actually getting the economics that i've read so far so i'm not too worried. i've started taking up photography again and i've been writing a hell of a lot of poetry. anywya, so i'm off. more later hopefully.
