Happy Canada Day!

Even though our country isn't perfect today is a good day to remember and be grateful for the rights and freedoms we have. Happy Canada Day everyone!

"I am a Canadian,free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think is right, free to oppose what I think is wrong, or free to choose who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind."

- John Diefenbaker (Canadian Bill of Rights)

365 Day Challenge

So I don't know if this is going to work out...and even if it does I don't know if I'm going to post all the pictures but Dan and I have both decided to try to take a picture every day. I think it's really more for people who are in photography (so more Dan than me) but I like taking pictures and kind of need a hobby to keep my mind occupied so I've taken this on and we'll see. I missed January 1st but I have taken more than one every day since January 2nd so that kind of makes up for it :P I haven't had to get that creative yet since we still have Christmas decorations up and the snow is so pretty. Anyway, if you are interested here is what I have taken so far! (I've tried to only pick one for each day...sorry if the file size is enormous, I haven't edited any of them down).

Remembrance Day

They Shall Not Grow Old
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

From Laurence Binyon's poem For the Fallen, written in September 1914

His favourite sport is feeding the ducklings

Oookay so I've been trying to make this entry for the past...I'm gonna say week. But I've been putting it off and putting it off until I almost forgot what I was going to make an entry about.

So first of all...I'm back from Hawaii. I got back at the same time as Sarah, you just wouldn't know it from my lj :P And ever since I got back I've been in a fairly dark place (going through a "well I've now officially achieved the only 2 life dreams I had(pathetic as they were) guess I'm done...just waiting to die now" type phase)

Anyway I figured that can't be healthy so I came up with a way to try to keep positive. I think I did this once when I was a bum but not this...extreme. So you know 1000 Awesome things? I'm going to kind of do that but instead of "awesome" it's going to be "positive" and just make an entry every day with something positive that happened that day. I may not see it but something positive does happen every day. So! This is actually a combination of things from yesterday and Tuesday because Tuesday was when I was going to start this...

1. Pants and Coffee: So one of the nurses brought us coffee on Tuesday and wished us a happy Secretary's wasn't. But ;) I hate buying dress pants with a passion. They are never comfortable...they never fit me right (apparently if I want to be this round I should be shorter or if I want to be this "tall" I should be skinnier) but I managed to get 2 pairs of dress pants that are amazingly comfortable and actually fit. It's like wearing pyjama pants to work. Reitmans = amazing.

So hopefully I'll make an entry every day now. I am definitely behind on reading/commenting on other ljs and I plan to get on that. Just so you know that I am not ignoring you. to work.

Wait...what now?

So I am not usually a late night person but last night was an exception to that rule. Jennifer and I were supposed to go see Life As We Know It last weekend...we try to get together once a month to have good times, breakfast, and see a movie. Anyway, I was deathly ill and therefore we postponed it until this weekend. We thought it would all be okay because although she is busy tonight (going to the Wonderland Halloween thing) we usually meet in the morning/early afternoon and do a matinee but then it turned out that the movie wasn't playing until 4:00ish today so there was no way we could do it and there's really not that much else playing...and we usually try to do a chick flick since neither of us is really surrounded by people who want to see chick flicks :P So anyway our solution was to go out for dinner last night and do the 9:50 showing. Soooo yeah. Didn't get home until just after 1:00 and then today I had chips and flat pop for breakfast. I feel like I'm in university again. Except as someone else because I never really did this stuff when I was in university. Now I'm pretty plan was to sleep in, which I did but then Dan's alarm went off at 10 and he's not home so I had to turn it off and then I tried to go back to sleep but that didn't work out so well...So I basically just got my regular amount of sleep.

So...there you have it. Weird times. I feel like yesterday I was living in the bizzaro universe. Also I'm annoyed because I've been getting better but for some reason now my throat hurts again. Just when I think I'm almost completely over my stupid cold. Except that I still cough...and occasionally get a stuffy nose. But other than that! My throat hasn't been sore. And now today it is. What the heck. Stupid sickness conspiring against me!

Look at me updating more regularly! I'm very proud of me :)

Did you notice that he threw you in the garbage?

Ok I'm tired and must sleep BUT first I have to say:

Psych = Awesome (I'm ridiculously can't even begin to comprehend)

Also, Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog? Two enthusiastic thumbs up...way up! I laugh to myself thinking about it. No joke. Proving both I'm a dork and that it is awesome!
