It's that  time of the year again folks. The final battle between now and the wonderful, wonderous winter holidays. You will most likely not see me until the second week of december. I appologise.

Wish me luck. >.<

I HAVE PANTS!!!!
4 to be exact. And a new jacket, and two new shirts. And a new sweater. It's all very exciting since I haven't been shopping in a long while and I've been without pants for much to long. I am now officially ready for fall/winter.

Now Katie and I are having a LOTR marathon, except we're lame and doing homework and skipping TTT because we are tired and we both have to work tomorrow. *sigh* how I miss those carefree high-school days. Except not at all. 

Oh No! The orcs are taking over Osgiliath! Poor Faramir is going to be yelled at by his evil, evil Steward father.

I'm trying to study for History but I just don't have the will power. It's friday night! And I'm doing homework! Geez!

Katie's doing calculus. I am so glad I did not take said course, for it sounds ridiculously difficult.

Yup yup.

[ mood | busy ]

I  forgot how much I love playing the djembe. It's much fun.

Other than that, my life is full of work and homework and more work and more homework. Ok, I lie, really not that much work, but enough to keep me busy.

In other news House was awesome yesterday. Wilson is so diabolical. And Bold. Oh so Bold. And....

I'm studying Vivaldi? not that anyone cares, I'm just trying to find something interesting to say. Obviously it's not working so well.

Fwah.

So, I'm currently in Peterburough visiting avec les relatives. Tis pretty fun. The wedding was really nice, and my dress was awesome so made for a fun evening.

Blah, I really don't have much to say other than that. 

Am I missing anything in Vancouver?

Seattle in 3 days!

[ mood | wet ]

So can anyone say worst closing shift ever?

Let me explain: Things were going well, it was 11:30 and we were almost done: I was cleaning the dishes in the back, Simon was mopping (as in with a mop, not sulking in the corner - my spelling is the lose) and Garrick had just finished cleaning the espresso machine and left (because technically he gets of at 11 and only sticks around 'cause he's nice). Anways, I hear this noise (remember, I'm in the back) and it sounds like a roar-ish type sound so assume that Simon is vacuuming and the vacuum spontaneously combusted (because it sucks and tend to do that). Anyways, he starts calling me and so I stick my head out of the door. There is Simon; soaking wet, water dripping from his hair and glasses. Yeah. The toliet exploded. To be more precise, the little pipe that runs from the clean water tank to the floor got jarred lose when the mop tapped it and it, well, exploded. This wasn't just a little leak either, this was a full on comic style water shooting to the ceiling leak. So we tried to jam the pipe back into the ground; that doesn't work, there is too much pressure from the water and to top it off the connection is somehow broken. 

So while Simon practically sits on top of it to try to stop the flow, I run to the back, grab as many dish clothes as I can see, and we try to stop the water with them. Nope. So we call Mark (our boss) who tells us to turn off the water. Whoops. So we search high and low for the water valve, turning off every sink in the store in the process. Nothing. We even pushed up the ceiling tiles to turn off switches there. We of course took turns doing this, one of us always trying to stop the water/keep it under control. Fat lot of good that did. Plus it was FREEZING! The water leaked all the way down the hall and down the ramp out of the door; which was left unlocked for some odd reason, causing people to come in off the street to tell us that we were flooding. Oh My God, WE ARE? THANK YOU for telling us! We didn't NOTICE! You just SAVED BLENZ!!! At least they didn't try to order drinks. Otherwise *flails arms*.  

Anyways, Mark shows up and we end up just shuting the bathroom door and finishing cleaning the place while Mark calls various people to turn off the water/find a plumber. Long story short, we eventually got the water turned off for the entire building (including the college and the McDonalds) but it didn't stop the flow, only weakend it to a steady stream. When Simon and I left Mark was still trying to find a plumber. We didn't get out until 1:30am.

And now my shoes and socks and pants are soaking wet and I am not as cranky as I would think I would be, but rather amused. We basically just laughed the whole time, there wasn't much else we could do kneeling in cold water around a toilet trying to stop the entire store from flooding. Plus Mark payed for us to take a taxi home, which was nice. Especailly beacause the buses weren't runing. 

So I realise that my grammer and stuff has been switching around a lot in the past few paragraphs, but give me a break; I've just spent two hours up to my knees in toilet water. Clean toilet water, but toilet water none-the-less.

I need sleep.

And a hot shower.

[ mood | sick/tired ]

So! I have a few things I need to rant/moan about

First.
Last night sucked. I was up all night/morning being sick. That hasn't happened in... a long time. I'm usually a lot better these days at balancing food/sleep/stress but apparently I still need to work a few things out. Sometimes I just want to punch Crohns. In the face.

Second.
Harry Potter.


And now i'm off to sleep before I have to go to work. >.<

So lets see, whats new in the world of Caro?
Nothing really. Still working, still rereading Harry Potter, still... surviving.

I say OOTP tonight with Holly, her friend Simone and a surprise appearence by Jessica and Rochelle. Twas amusing. As for the film though, I'm reserving judgement as of right now. It broke so many rules of the book that they are hardly the same thing. As a movie though... I have to see it again before I decide.

It's lame, I know, but I'm getting kind of excited about work on the 20th. At first I was kind of bummed out about working that night, but since I'm Head Geek that night, I get to do things like make people wear name tags and dress up and Holly and I are going to make house banners and hang them around the store. So what, I'm lame. I know. You don't need to tell me.

I am tired. I'm sleeping in tomorrow and it shall be glorious.

The Doctor started babbling on about timey-wimey devices so I stuck a banana in his mouth [

[ mood | chipper ]

Yeah, so, I feel like I should update. Don't ask why, I just do.

Considering this week was supposed to be my "take it easy" week, it really hasn't been all that relaxing. It hasn't been all that bad or hectic, but just not all that relaxing either. I worked Saturday, at 5:30am. It sucked. And I had a headache and was *this* close to calling in sick. But I persevered. Anyways, twas only a six hour shift, which I guess is actually pretty long, but seeing as it didn't go past noon, I'm alright with that.

I think I mentioned earlier that I'm making my dad watch Doctor Who. We finished season 1 yesterday, and I think I've got him hooked, he seemed very taken with the Daleks *grin*

EXTERMINATE!!!

And speaking of the doctor, I stumbled across a list of all the websites the BBC has created to tie in the Doctor Who. I must say it took up at least three hours of my day off yesterday. Not that I'm a fan girl or anything.... Mostly this time spent just left me with the Kukaburra song stuck in my head (reference Our Friend the Doctor Is Trapped, and I'm still trying to find out why it sounds like Barney's singing it >.<) and an increased liking for Martha Jones after reading her 'blog', particularly entries 03/23/2007 (HP FTW!) and 06/10/2007. 

Hmmm, what else?

Is anyone else as surprised as I am that I am not bouncing off the walls screaming that there are only 12 days left? 12 DAYS!!!!! I'm excited, but I'm not quite there yet. 'Tis kind of sad, seeing as it's the last one. The end of an era. 

I'm talking about the Potter books, incase you didn't catch on to that ^_^

Oh, and just a warning about the OOTP game; it is not for the faint of heart when it comes to angst. I warn you, if you are in anyways irritated, angered, agravated, or frightened by Harry!angst, turn back now! There is more angst in the first few scenes of the game than all the books combined! you have been warned ^_~

Ok, I'm off to do laundry before work, cheers.
