Snow Angel

Thank you to the kind neighbor with a snow-blower who took care of the 5 inches of snow on my driveway and sidewalk yesterday! You've made my week!

Must be brain dead

I thought I had a Dreamwidth account set up ages ago, but my username wasn't found when I tried to login today....does anyone have any extra codes? Thanks!

This just broke my heart

What kind for parent would make their kid give up their dog because they're getting a divorce? Aren't things hard enough for the child as it is? The note left with the dog just says it all:

"Please take care of Mr. B. He is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. Six years old. My parents got divorced and Mr. B was supposed to go to the pound. I think he has a better chance with you. This is my birthday money for any of his care. He is used to kids, not other dogs. He's a good boy. I know God will take care of Mr. B — Everyone loves him . . . especially me. Thank you."

I <3 Blake Shelton

Just watched yesterday's interview - Blake on Jay Leno! Absolutely love him! Not sure what amused me more..."Yes, yes - I was in beauty pageants..." or "I don't even know where I live.....I have no clue where my house is."

The Voice

I'm not one for reality TV shows, but I am loving The Voice - does anyone else watch it? Loved that Christina pointed out the bromance blooming between Adam and Blake!

People are so screwed up

A coworker and I were walking around to get lunch, and this woman kept yelling at us (for no reason as far as we can tell). I could hear her footsteps getting faster, and the next thing I knew she grabbed my coworker's pony tail and was reaching to grab my arm! She yanked hard on the pony tail and started yelling at me she wanted to 'take me on'. Apparently we deserved this because she asked for a smoke (not that I heard) and we were needed to be taught a lesson because we ignored her! WTF???

The worst was we're standing on a busy street corner, outside a little diner and no one stopped to help! Hello??? Anybody?? Some poor girl has her hair yanked back and there's yelling and no one even stopped to see if anyone in the scrum needed help.

I honestly don't know if I'm more shocked at the crazy lady or the passer-byers...

On My Way

So the VISA finally came in and I'm taking off tomorrow (and will be in a plane or an airport for 30 some odd hours after that). I'm at a loss at what to say at this point - as this is what I've been working towards for...well forever (high school, uni, articling...). It was all for the opportunity to work/explore Australia. I'm just hoping it turns out to be as good as I've imagined.

I've had this account for ages - and as anyone who every stumbles by can see, I almost never use it. I think it's a good way to store my thoughts on this trip, which will make it easier for me to make a scrapbook for it later. Especially since I'm working on the whole "pack light" thing (therefore no notebooks this time) and will likley be in touristy areas in the latter half on the trip and can just use internet cafes.
