This past Sunday, I went and saw Edmond. Stine, Lyam and Jose' were all in this production. Good play, but not uplifting whatsoever. Before that, Tony & I hopped on his motorcycle to meet Chris in his neighborhood (Madrona) for brunch. Yum!

All day on Monday, I was feeling utterly exhausted until I left work. Yesterday, I was having waves of exhaustion. I'm thinking it has to do with something I'm consuming, so today I avoid drinking the one soda I usually have with lunch. We bbq'd in the back and a soda sure would taste good with my veggie burger, but I resist. I'm writing down what I eat and when I experience these waves of exhaustion.

I've been working out regularly and have not taken off one pound. I've been watching my consumption of breads and stuff and upping my protein. Let's see if there is any change.

OK...back to work.

I love my iPod! Woot! Woot! I enjoy working out much more now and my commute - man does it make my commute better. Best gift EVER!

Thursday night, Tony came over here and we tried going to the best sushi place in the city, but it was closed already. That place is ALWAYS packed. One day we'll make it there. We went to Murphy's Pub instead and ate pub food. When we got back to my place, Tony set up BlueTooth on my pc so I can connect to the internet using my cell phone. Since I no longer spend much time on the internet at home, my plan is to get rid of my broadband internet connection and my land line.

Since Tony was in Vancouver (not Victoria) for the Pixies show last night, I went out with the girls. Julie, Sunny, Natalie, Amiee and I met at Broadway Grill for margaritas and crack nachos before heading to the club to shake some booty. Much fun was had. I didn't stay out too late due to the tiredness. It was so nice to be able to get 8 hours of sleep last night.

Now I do laundry. I am actually excited to have all of my clothes clean at once. It's been a long time since I've been at home long enough to do 3 loads of laundry. Today reminds me of the days when I used to telecommute. Ah, the good old days.

I'm also in the process of moving all of my galleries to Tony's website, but things have not been going smoothly. We didn't have time to work on it the other night, but I hope to have him help me figure out the issue soon. People need to see pictures, you know!

My weekend ended up not being so lazy. Friday night, we went out and that was fun. Saturday, I took my car into the shop to get the oil changed. Earlier in the week, the "Service Engine Soon" light came on so I had them check that out also. Apparently, my car's computer needs replacing. It's a $900 part! Fortunately, it's covered under some Federal warrenty that I've never heard of before. Maybe it's new or something. Afterwards, I met Tony & Solomon for falafals and then Tony & I went to Ikea. It was an absolute zoo. He got a new desk that he deparately needed. We then went to Bed, Bath & Beyond where he bought a bunch of other stuff for his apartment. Saturday night, we stayed in and painted his coffee table.

On Sunday, Tony, Chris and I went to brunch. Then, Tony & I went to Target for more stuff for his apartment. I dropped him off at home and went home to do some laundry. I went over to Tony's later to watch the Simpsons and then we did something else but now I forget.


Tony's going to see The Pixies on Friday in Victoria. A friend of his had an extra ticket. I am not envious, I swear!

Guess who's bored at work? Me!

This week has been pretty mellow. I've been able to go to the gym after work every day except for Wednesday. We went to Julie's for TV night. Last night, we went to the club for Xentropic.

I'm so happy it's friday. I get to be lazy this weekend. The one errand I am going to run is taking my car in for a much needed oil change. As I was driving last night, a little light came on on my dashboard that says, "Service Car Soon" or something like that. I hope it's nothing major because I cannot afford it.

I've been pondering getting a second job, but I'd want it to be one where I worked from home and could create my own hours. Like, data entry or something. And I'd only want to work 10 to 15 hours a week. I don't want a second job, but having a little bit of extra income would definitely help out right now. Pttthh.

Waaah. *cry* I did my taxes and owe more than I expected and now am sad. I was hoping to make a trip to SoCal if I had the vacation time, but now I know I can't due to lack of money.

Alright, I'll try and be upbeat here.
My weekend was fabulous. The birthday party was a great success and all had fun. My friend, Murray, took Tony, Chris and me up in a single-engine plane for a 2 hour sunset flight. It was so cool. I'll put up the link soon. Sunday, I actually slept in until noon! It was wonderful. We went to an annual Easter party...t'was fun.

I didn't want to come back to work yesterday, but I did. Time to be a grown-up!

Poor Screech. The antibiotics gave him diarrea and it's been a mess. I stopped giving them to him on Saturday, but he's still got it. I feel bad for him :-( I also don't like waking up to poop smears on my pillow from his runny butt. Gross!

This is my last day. Yes it is.

I am getting the passport for when we go to Canada. I also hope to get off this continent one of these days. Cereal. The acquiring of the passport has been a very large pain in my ass. I forgot my birth certificate on Tuesday, so I couldn't do it during lunch on that day. Wednesday, I met up with Chris for lunch. Today, I was given the incorrect directions to one place. When I went to the courthouse later, they told me they only take checks even though the application states that they accept major credit cards. I don't typically carry around my checkbook. I'm not going to deal with it tomorrow since tomorrow is going to be about fun.

Today has been very bleh. I've had a headache all day long. I took Screech to the vet this morning to get his teeth cleaned and have exams & stuff. He's healthy but does have a bad case of gingivitis. I get to give him antibiotics. Yay. But, it's good to know that he doesn't have problems with his thyroid. When I first moved here, he weighed in at 10.5 lbs. He's gained two pounds since I started free-feeding him.

Life at my house has been so much better since I started free-feeding him. It's great. I can't believe I withheld for this long!

Thank you to J&D for the REI gift certificate! I'm going this weekend! Thank you Dad & Carolyn for the check! I'm going shopping tomorrow! I want a new dress for the party.

If anyone wants to reach me tomorrow, call my cell phone.

Saturday, I'm going to Stine's for a massage. From 6 to 7:30pm, I'm gonna be flying around over the city in a little plane. I have a friend that recently got his pilot's license. Whee! I hope we also go to brunch in the morning.

Stupid headache. We have plans to go to Ira's tonight for dinner. I hate feeling crappy.

This weekend, I only got to do about half of what I wanted to do, but that's OK. Life is fun.

Hanging out with Teresa = check
Snowboarding = check
Going out saturday night = check
Q.T. with my favorite boy = check
Made brunch on Sunday = check
Bookclub = check
Called Mom = check
A load of laundry = check
Made two delicious quiches = check

The things I did not get to do = two loads of laundry, motorcycle ride through the arboretum with Tony, trip to Ikea, passport photos. I took care of the photos during lunch today and will drop off the application during lunch tomorrow. I'm having dinner at Teresa's tonight - I'm taking one of the quiches.

I need to put "Doing Taxes" at the top of my priority list. I would have done them ages ago, but I've been procrastinating because I have to deal with the income from contracting and unemployment. I sure do hope I do not have to pay a lot. Bleh.

I get to be in my 20's for 3.5 more days.

I was meant to help Sandi paint her old place on Monday night, but she never called. So, I helped her on Tuesday. Last night, I went over to Tony's and he dyed my hair for me. Wednesday nights are TV night - Chris and Amanda were also over. I hate the day after I dye the black part in my hair because it just looks funny when I have blonde roots on the other half. I can see people notice it. I will fix it tonight when I dye the red.

I'm meant to hang out with Teresa tomorrow night, go snowboarding on Saturday and do the other stuff on Sunday like finally have book club. This is the last weekend of snowboarding before Crystal is closed. This winter flew by so quickly. BUT, it's not the end of snowboarding this season. We are taking another trip back up to Whistler in May. It is going to be super, super, super cheap. Yeah, the snow isn't going to be so great, but we'll still have tons of fun.

I turn 30 in 8 days. Ack. No, not really. I'm not ack. 30 just sounds so grown up and i surely don't feel all grown up.
