Playing catch up

Sooo... it's been awhile. Like, a month. Here are a few quick highlights:

The annual Swing City Vintage Night! Thanks to Jools for the photo, and to Nana for birthday money for the dress. It looks like I will be wearing the dress tomorrow for Jody's coworker Paul's wedding.
My first time at Bootleg Boogie! Wow, that was fun. Swing dancing on a Thursday night... who'd have thought?
School is out! Yay! Mom and I baked cookies, the Christmas tree is up and presents for 20 are spilling out from underneath it, but I have yet to find the perfect gift for Jody...
Michelle is away in New York for the holidays, and my friend Monika has moved away to Nova Scotia *sniff*. But Ruth and Peter are coming from Winnipeg to visit! And Pam & Mitch are sticking around, as is Jody. There will be a full house at Christmas as usual.

If anyone discovers a cure for stress, please let me know. So far people have suggested several things to ease the knots in my stomach:

-A hot bath with chocolate, candles, wine, and bubbles
-Cleaning my room (yup, did that and several loads of laundry-- good for procrastination and actually accomplishes something!)
-Snuggles, hugs, etc.

If you can think of anything else, please let me know. Or you can offer to write an essay for me.

I hate essays. Moreover, I hate research essays.

Happy Day!

Today was a good day... only one class at school, had a nice chat with Rachel afterwards and worked on my present for my sister's birthday. I won't say more about that in case she reads this before I give it to her. So excited for her to see it!

I went to the gym with Michelle and Chris (no, not Chris H) and I am pretty pleased with my progress over the last month. I am more confident, and also I moved up a little on the free weights on one exercise-- I am now lifting 15 lbs, whereas a week ago I was at 12 and when I started I was at 10. I'm almost ready to increase the weight on another exercise, too. Yahoo! Slowly but surely.

While downtown, I found a darling vintage hat, just in time for Swing City's annual Remembrance Day weekend Vintage Night. Now I just have to find an outfit... funny how that works.

Tonight I went to Alpha with Jody, and we had some very interesting discussions. It's nice to look at familiar topics with new eyes.

Princess Bride Trivia!

Hooray... someone on OK Cupid! made a Princess Bride test. I did pretty well but I want to watch it again... yes, again.


Inconceivable! You scored 84!

A respectable score. This movie is probably nestled in your dvd collection, and its not gathering dust either. You are a big fan, if not yet utterly devoted. A few of the questions may have stumped you, but instead of being annoyed, this just makes you want to watch it again to find out the answers. Well done!

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

A World In A Grain Of Sand

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.

-William Blake

Consider this blog my grain of sand on Willows Beach.
