No Subject, here, there, everywhere

6 06 2010

Hmmm I’m not even sure where to begin, usually I have an idea, a thread, a title.. it’s all pretty much mapped out in my mind.  But not this one.  I guess I’m just going to have to write it and see where it goes, see what comes out and what title will do.

That’s not to say that I don’t have any idea what to write, or even on other subjects tasty little tidbits that have been mapped out.  But that’s not what I want to write.. obviously.  So her I sit sipping on my drink.. wait someone is chatting with me.

Ok Back.

Speaking of random…ok you don’t know this but I do.. it’s funny how connections are made.  So one of my old friends from PG just started chatting with me, she is the daughter of my old boxing coach.  Actually I had just messaged her a week or so ago to ask if she remembered Mike’s last name.

Now why would I want to know that, well most because I’m curious and a few blasts from the past have contacted me and it’s been good for a Read the rest of this entry »

Stepping Out of the Zone

29 01 2010

Stepping outside of the box, the zone of comfort, is very challenging for a lot of people.  I am most definitely one of them.  It may not seem like it but really I’m a sissy pants, I like my routines, I like hanging out with the people I know, going to the places I’m used to.  I like everything fuzzy and it’s right place :).

Go out stay in, I choose the easy comfy decision.  But when I don’t, something good or at least interesting happens.  For example, last week I had dinner with a friend (totally normal) went home and realized that I was supposed to meet a friend at a pub at 9… sigh it was cold, a little late and I had to work in the morning.  I so very much wanted to bail, and anyone else and I  would have but he was leaving and I hadn’t got to see him yet.  So I sucked it up and went, and had a great time talking to my friend and a couple of other people there.  Met some new people and had some fun and engaging conversation :).

This past weekend, I jumped out of the zone feet first.   And some ridiculous-ness  ensued as any of you who are on my Facebook have seen snippets of in my status updates.  I ended up taking the train out to Zhong Li to have dinner, drinks and bowling with some people.   I hate the train… generally speaking I avoid all forms of public transit, for a multitude of reasons.  But worst of all, I never  (have to) take the train so the whole experience ends up being really stre Read the rest of this entry »

Lemmi Ride Your Couch ;)

21 07 2009

A little note at the beginning of all this…  From Thursday to Sat I had a total of  6-7 hours of sleep, I faired a little better on sun mon but I think I drank every day but Friday so even when I did sleep it wasn’t a good sleep.

Between Thursday and Monday, slept on 3 different couches, visited 6+ cities, 2 countries and drove for more that 16 hours, took two ferries and met up with 6 different close friends.  Packed .. I’m telling you action packed… now I’m run down sickish and hiding at my sister’s place.

I was supposed to have dinner with Jordy on Wed but we postponed so I could go to roosters.  I tried to get downtown in time to meet up with Amanda on Kits beach but I was too slow and missed her so I went to MEC instead and then met up with Jordy for dinner and drinks.  I had a super great time catching up with Jordy (did you know he is getting married??)  and then JordyI decided to crash on his couch because I just didn’t want to drive all the way into Vancouver for dinner then back to Maple Ridge only to spin back to Vancouver in the morning.. just stupid and a waste of time and gas.

Ended up staying up silly late chatting with Jordy and sipping wine and beer, the next day I got up made myself purty and met up with Troy!  Horray.   (oh in between there I was hella upset because I was trying to arrange meeting up with Casey and he was being FULL of suck and unhelpful.. but it was all ok in the end.. my sisters rescued the situation by essentially giving me her car for the whole weekend!).

Troy and MeTroy and I went for a little drive downtown and a coffee, we also stopped into little sister’s book store to check out possible books for my new job as a dominatrix (really I just want Read the rest of this entry »

Happy birthday to me.. (soon)

17 09 2008

ok not quite yet.. but whatever 😀 It is next week though

So we are planning some kinda of 5 days of celebration.. I think it should be more aptly be termed 5 days of socializing really as we have zero intentions of being ridiculous the whole time. It’s not even I’m too old for this shit.. I am just not in the mood for it 😀
A 5 day bender has never appealed to me and probably never will… even in my ‘boozy’ phases I’d wanna take it easy.. or at least easier 😉 a couple of the days. And the boozy phases are few and far between these days.

The tentative plan is to have dinner, drinks and a movie on my birthday, on Tuesday. Drinks and Dancing at Carnegie’s or Roxy 99 on Wednesday, since it’s ladies night with free entry and drinks. Thursday is supposed to be at the Brass Monkey, also ladies night, but I’m feeling hesitant about that one. Honestly, I’m not much of a fan of The Brass Monkey but I’ll play ball (plus I have no real other suggestions). Friday was meant to be drinks, cake and board games at out house, but we might change that to drinking and shenanigans in Shirlin and looking for the mechanical bull if anyone can verify that it’s there. And Sat is supposed to be out drinking and dancing, I think Sat is meant to be the big night out… but no one has made any solid plans yet.

I want to be all excited about Sat as I haven’t really been out ‘out’ since, the ‘incident’ (drugged, robbed, in a ditch.. if you don’t know the story .. it’s long and I don’t want to get into it). I’m not scared to go out or drink, but I’m definitely hesitant of drinking and partying at bars… which sucks because occasional benders are fun :P.

I’ve been bombarding my self with my echinacea and oregano oil, and I’m pretty sure I’m almost better, hooray! I would have even gone running today if I wasn’t working so much, but I’ll be back on the ‘horse’ tomorrow. I’m officially starting to ramble, so that’s all.
