They're all married up!

Yesterday L and I drove into Niagara Falls to stand up with my friends J&R as they got married! It was really nice - up the Konica Minolta Tower, great view, only ten of us plus the photographer and minister. French tourists tried to invade twice, but we beat them back with picks and shovels. Next door to TGI Fridays (shades of Office Space) for drinks while they had more pix taken, back to the tower for drinks and carousing at the bar, back again to TGI Fridays for more drinks and nibblies, then off to my parents’ for the evening.

Today I made a shirt for my Dad as I won’t see him for Father’s Day (Two-Sheds, get it? Well, maybe you had to be there) and then L and I drove to Stoney Creek for his cousin’s engagement party (big family again, of course) and then back here.

What a weekend! Oh, and I bought a couple of DVDs before taking off - A Mighty Wind and Bladerunner (Director’s Cut) - but I haven’t watched them yet!

I ache

Have you ever fallen up the stairs? You would think it wouldn’t hurt much, you know, since you’re actually closer to the ground that way, but it hurts enough. More than that, it’s embarassing.

That’s just what I did on my way in today - I was almost at the elevators when my toe caught on that last step. It was pretty impressive actually. I didn’t just stumble, I sprawled out flat on the floor, purse in one direction and knitting in the other. I was pretty cool about it though, just kinda thought ’wow, that hurt’ and started to pick myself up - and then a stranger came up and asked me if I was okay, and started trying to gather my things.

Damn, almost got away unnoticed!

Anyway, now I have two fabulous bruises starting on my kneecaps and I ache all over. Feh.

Three Hours of LOST

Holy doodle. Season’s over, until next January I hear, what’ll I do???

So yeah, it’s been a busy week, an old friend from Waterloo and his wife were in town so we visited with them a bit, dinner at Hot House, you know. Very nice.

I’d taken the next day off, originally we were all supposed to go to the Toronto Metro Zoo (never been? Check out my pix from my last visit on my Flickr page - also linked at right) but plans for that fell through so I did some cleaning and then L and I went for a nice walk on the Rouge River. Next day we went to the Toronto FC game, which was very cool, although we didn’t win (damn) and then went up to Kitchener to visit with J* and co., and another friend from my Waterloo days, busy busy! We even got to Aberfoyle, but I was good, didn’t spend too much...

...which brings us to tonight. My neighbour A came over and we watched the recap episode and two hour season finale of Lost. HOLY DOODLE. Damn. Grr...

Wedding project under way - and the evil that is Facebook

Yep, joined Facebook. It’s evil.

The Clothing Show came around, and of course I spent money - not bad though, a dress, three dress shirts, a t-shirt, five badges, a project bag and a purse for under $100! Better than most years! I also got back to Honest Ed’s and got that Magic Bullet - I love it!

But the best news is - I found what I need for J&R’s present! So now I’m going to be VERY busy!

Of course, I joined Facebook too. I have friends who refer to it as Crackbook. No kidding... but it’s been interesting, I’ve been contacted by people I haven’t seen in years, which is pretty cool.

Oh what else has been going on, I dunno, it’s been a blur while I’ve been working on the present...

Oh, due to circumstances too involved to go into, I now have four giant orange goldfish, three times as long as any of the other fish in my aquarium. I think it was a bad idea now to have adopted them though, as they’re terrifying all my other fish and I think they even ATE two of my shrimp - who are now too scared to come out and clean the tank, which they were doing before. My aquarium is gross now, I will have to clean it myself, sheesh...

Oh, and visited my parents and L’s parents for Mother’s Day weekend, that was very nice. My Dad and I went for a nice long walk along the canal and such, so nice that the weather was sweet.

New DVDs: Casino Royale (best Bond EVAH) and Night At The Museum, both nice additions to the addiction...

Oop, new project...

Yet again, I’m procrastinating. Clapotis has been put aside. Why? J’s getting married! There’s less than a month before the big day, and even though they’ve said they don’t want presents, I’d like to give them something. I’ve decided on what, but I’ve got to find the supplies. I’m not saying more until I’ve finished it!

So I’ve been going everywhere looking for the right stuff, but with no luck. In the meantime I’ve been stocking up the aquarium - I have four new little cherry shrimp and three new pretty blue guppies, they went in well and made themselves at home with everyone. Tried Honest Ed’s - man, haven’t been in there for years and years, and it’s still just as easy to get lost! No luck, but saw that Magic Bullet thing (you know, the one that sold for $100 last summer) for $34, so maybe tomorrow I'll go back for it!

Today was a great day - not only did my Amazon order arrive (Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire, WKRP Season 1 and Willo The Wisp!), but tonight was Tavern night, and it was good - stayed late too but sooo tired!

Tomorrow: I WILL find what I’m looking for, maybe maybe...

A nice week

Well, I haven’t seen any fry since that first time, I think the fish are too traumatized to have any more! So what’s been going on?

Well, now that Darts is done my Tuesdays are free-ish so I’m catching up on my House-watching. Hugh Laurie rocks. Ahem. But I haven’t seen him lately. Why? Last Tuesday I got together with some of the girls from my Darts team and had some drinks on the Danforth, which was really nice, if a bit chilly - Summer’s not here yet, but soon!

Last weekend I went up to Kitchener and met some of the girls for dessert at a swank restaurant, very nice, to celebrate some birthdays. J* really liked what I brought her too! FYI, Inglot makes some really nice makeup, a bit pricey but worth it! L came up on Saturday to join us, as he had been at the Toronto FC game at BMO Field (they lost, didn’t even score, but they’re awfully new so there’s time yet) and we went for dinner with some other friends, and Sunday we all went to Oscar’s before having a nice walk in the park with my godson (cutest little boy ever).

Yesterday I went for lunch with L and his old coworker, which was really nice - I’d only met her once, at his housewarming, but she remembers me and was really sweet, aaw...

Oh, and I saw Hot Fuzz again tonight with T and Xog, couldn’t help myself! Still funny, so there.
