A Post for Posting sake!!

Ok so it's been wayyy too long since my last post... so thought I'd write something tonight..

Now, what to write....

My niece Sarah is coming to visit tomorrow (till Sunday).. I can't wait... she's five years old and very precocious (oy the stories I could tell you LOL).. oh ya..she's bringing my sister with her!!! Just kidding... hehe.. I'm very close to my sister, even though she lives wayyy over in England..
Ok.. I found a subject to write about lol...

When I was younger my sister was almost 5 years older then was, It seemed like a generation apart.. oh sure for a time we shared a room, and she was there for me when I had a nightmare and I sat on the floor staring at her head willing her to wake up (she did). the only thing we really had in common was our brother and his tormenting of us lol (boy and middle child syndrom I think lol). I never really thought we were all that close... Well, she's still almost five years older then I am, but we grew up and things changed!!!

My sister moved away and had a family, we don't talk very much but when we do it's great. We get to see each other at least once a year, either she comes here, or I go there but despite all that I stand by my statement that we are close. She's the best sister in the world and I love her very much. She's got the greatest kids (three wonderful girls).. I can't wait to see her, just wish it was longer then 6 days!

Well I guess that's about it, I'll hopefully let you know how the visit went!!

The Undead!!!

Ok, now that I have your attention LOL

Ok, when I was in Europe in the summer, I bought a slew of books.. One of them was called "Undead and Unpopular" it was a really funny book... one of a series... Now normally I don't like to read series out of order... but I had already started the book before I realized it was part of a series... Anyways I read the book... and It was one of those books that makes you chuckle outloud.. Yes, it's about vampires but in a humorous vein (pardon the pun lol)..

Anyways back home, a few days ago, I was in a bookstore and found more of the series... (just missing one now).... these are the books written by Mary Janice Davidson:

Undead and Unwed
Undead and Unemployed (the one I'm missing -for now)
Undead and Unappreciated
Undead and Unreturnable
Undead and Unpopular

Anyways to give you an idea of what to expect from these books. Here's the back cover thing from the first one:

"From just-laid-off secretary to queen of the undead....

It's been a helluva week for Betsy Taylor. First, she loses her job. Then, to top things off, she's killed in a car accident. But what really bites (besides waking up in the morgue dressed in a pink suit and cheap shoes courtesy of her stepmother) is that she can't even seem to stay dead. Every night she rises, with a horrible craving for blood. She's not taking too well to a liquid diet.

Worst of all, her new friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen, and they want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious power-hungry vampire in five centuries --a badly dressed Bela Lugosi wannabe, natch. Frankly, Betsy couldn't care less about vamp politics, but they have a powerful weapen of persuasion: designer shoes. How can any self-respecting girl say no? But a collection of Ferragamos isn't the only temptation for Betsy. It's just a lot safer than the scrumptious Sinclair--a seductive bloodsucker whose sexy gaze seems as dangerous as a stake through the heart...

It occured to me as I read the first one.. (err the last one in the series so far lol) that this book might be for younger readers.. but I didn't care.. it made me laugh.. as did the next one,.. which WAS the first one in the series..... I've already started the third one.. (dammit I gotta find that second one!!!) LOL

Anyways.. that's my blogging for tonight...

Talking about crushes!!

I was trying to think of what to write about tonight..and decided that I don't want to put that pressure on me... that I "HAVE'" to post every day... with that said... here's what I'm going to write about today..

Was chatting with friends about a show... and got to thinking... wow there are a lot of actors I have crushes on (or is it lusting for?)..... Shouldn't you outgrow 'crushes' at some point.. I mean I'm 26 years old...err I mean 42 (lol) and I still have teenage crushes on people in the entertainment industry!!!

Do I feel 42?? Heck to the no.. I feel like I'm in my 20's.. so I guess it's ok to still have these crushes heheh

Well short and sweet... write at ya soon (but not necessarily tomorrow lol) !!!

Driving in the rain!

Just so you know I've been thinking about this post alll dayyyyy.. aren't you proud of me..two days in a row..!! Ok on to the subject at hand.

I HATE driving in the rain, in fact it scares the bejeezus outta me.. I'm not talking a light rain I'm talking a torrential downpour where you can't see in front of you and all you can do is keep an eye on the left line to make sure you stay in your lane... That's the kinda rain I'm talking about.. and that's what I drove in today, to get to work.. I was skeered chitless!!!! Happily I made it to work in one piece *phew* ... but like I said... I hate driving in the rain.

My day other then that went from bad to worse... got to work after two days off to find my rolley (what we call our personal drawers where we kept our stuff, which we have a key for and our name on it)... I looked for it for 40 minutes before I finally found it!! But I was pissed... but I guess the rest of the day went ok... but was glad when 3 o'clock came round..

Now, the countdown is on for season premier of Lost.. omg I can't wait!!! Hope you enjoyed my random rambling!!! Nothing really meaningful to say, but as a friend said.. it doesn't have to be right !!!!!

Try not to faint


I'm finally posting in my blog.... Cokie and Dom.... try not to faint...

Well, I've come to a conclusion, I'm not a good blog person.... I forget to read friends blogs and I rarely post in my own... Thing is... what do I have to write about?? Interestingly enough when I was young I always thought I'd be a writer when I grew up, I was always writing nonsensical stories...

So, what do I write about? I could do the joke thing and maybe I'll post the odd joke that I find humourous. I could write about my day. But I like to forget my day (well only on days I work lol) once I get home. I guess I could just write what comes into my mind... so here goes

I had yesterday and today off from work today so a four day weekend... I went to my cousins house last night to break the fast (It was Yom Kippur yesterday).. and ate like a pig... but I enjoyed it.. For the most part I did a whole lotta nothing these past four days. I played an offline game yesterday which made the day go by super fast... played it again today.. it's addicting lol.. BUT at 2 pm I got off my duff and finally hung up all my winter clothes (which I had brought upstairs from my locker) and now there's a bagfull of summer clothes waiting to go downstairs to my locker).. I also cleaned my kitchen and did my laundry.. So I'm feeling very accomplished today. Then met with a friend and we went to Swiss Chalet for dinner (for my American friends reading this.. Swiss Chalet is a Canadian restaurant that specializes in chicken... and if you ever ever get north of the border you HAVE to search it out and eat there.. omgg it's sooooooo good.. also inexpensive) Then back home to chill out on puter.

Oh ya.. we saw the most amazing thing tonight after dinner.. we walked back to our building (we both live in same condo building...) and decided to sit in the little park area for a bit... and there were like a thousand birds in a number of trees singing loudly..and then silence and we see the birds fly out .. it was awesome and we were mesmorized by the sight of the multiple groups of birds flying with no direction whatsoever... it was just incredible to watch..

Ok, so how did I do.... did I bore you to tears?? I hope not lol.. in any case give me time hopefully I'll have some fun stuff to write about. I'd promise that I'll keep this up and post every day or at least every other day, but I've promised that before and well.... So keep checking back (if you dare) and hopefully you'll find something interesting!!!
