On another note, my life is completely rediculas!!!
Here is my day so far!
I went for a run, well, more like a light jog but that's neither here nor there... I tried to do a new route to make my jog a little longer than the usual 3.5-4 k and I got lost, yes lost in my own subdivision! I ended up (II'm not sure how) at Colin's Bay Road which surprises me!
Ironically I'm not the first person that this has happened to in my twisty subdivision! Melissa has gotten lost and it took her three hours to get home once! LOL! Once I realized I was on Colin's Bay road and would have to do a massive lap (or what I consider massive) and go onto a main road or turn around and go back, guess what I did??? Turned around and went back! Up this huge hill, almost akin to the "hill that never ends" in Montreal! LOL! Needless to say, I was pooped by time I got up it! Alas, I dredged on and got home 45 minutes later...
Then I put out the laundry my mom had done last night, cause I'm a good daughter, and she told me to! LOL! But the next time I step outdoors I realize that the post for our clothes line has SNAPPED!!!!!! I knew the clothes was heavey but MAN OH MAN! So i picked up the clothes and brought them inside and am waiting for dad to come home so that he can see what he can do withit.. but the post ssnapped so I dont think there's anything he can do at the current moment!!!
And so then I did the dishes!!! it took me a half an hour to do the pan we used to cook our ham in last night, who would have known that it would be THAT hard!!! I mean, the damn fat didn't want to come off no happer how hard I scrubbed and how much hot water I put in there, my wash cloth just went right over it!! I was like "COME ON!!!" LOL! and now I'm exhausted and need to go to work! LOL! Ironic eh?!? Worn out by 1pm and now it's time to start the eight hour work day! LOL! Oh well, at least I'm in a good mood all things considered!! LOL!
this is one of those days I laugh at everything because if I didn't laugh, I'd cry!! LOL!
Hope this post was at least a little entertaining!!! Just be thankful this day hasn't happened to you!
Headlines from Cath and Ash’s adventure to Montreal.
Asparagus Pee Fumes Lethal to Bugs: It was a Saturday night when Miss. Ashley Pitcher ate soup with Asparagus in soup. As many people know from loads of scientific studies (I only learned about this when I was at Angie’s the summer) but apparently when you eat asparagus the next day (for most people) your pee smells. To know why you’ll have to google it. LOL.. but anyways, the next morning Cath was like “did you kill a bug in the bathroom?” I was like “Not unless I stepped on it in the dark” she said “well it isn’t squished” I laugh, “Must have been the asparagus pee.” She laughed and said “little guy didn’t stand a chance!” Personally I think this could be a solution for people who do not like bugs, eat a lot of asparagus. I heard garlic works as well for mosquitoes. Though I think that’s more myth than fact. I hope you guys don’t think that’s gross, I thought it was pretty funny.
Moving on to our next story
“This is the Hill that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friends, some people started climbing it not knowing what it was, and they’ll continue climbing it forever just because…”
Okay so on Sunday there is suppose to be drums and all this stuff going on in the park, so Cath and I go to McGill campus (which looks deceptively close to the park on the map) and on our way we had to walk up this huge ass hill!! I mean it was like a mountain… Catherine is quoted as saying “I could never climb mount Everest, or I might be able to, but I’d complain a lot.” By time we reached the top, we were pretty much ready to die… We were both kind of both laughing and crying because we had no idea where the entrance to the park is… so we enter at an opening near this very posh looking children’s hospital and clip three sets of stone stares Catherine was quoted as saying something resembling “I would like to kill who ever invented stairs.” And then after the second staircase “who’s great idea was this anyways?” I pointed to her (even though it was my brilliant idea, I mean, she did agree to it, RIGHT, RIGHT?) My thoughts were we’d chill under a tree and read our books and eat our lunch that we brought with us… and then climb the hill and watch the sunset, take some pictures and then come down the hill and go to supper… HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, after climbing that huge ass hill and the millions of stairs were was no way on this good earth we were going to climb the rest of the hill… LOL… anyways, so when we were finally finished climbing the stairs we got to a bike path, Catherine was looks around, no fields of grass or benches in sight, “Ah nature” she says this with a certain distain that makes me nearly double over in laughter. We eat our chocolate bars with crazy deprived fitness people running and cycling by.. LOL… I felt a little bad but oh well… In another 20 minute Cath grabs on to my arm “I SEE GREE FIELDS AND PICNIC TABLES!”
We sit and eat and a whops attacks me, I’m like “I HATE NATURE!” really I just hate things with stingers but… oh well!
She calls me silly but then a spider lands RIGHT beside her and she moves pretty quickly out of the way. I very skilfully save the day but throwing my sandwich wrapper at the spider thereby knocking it off the table… hehehe, it was pretty neat if-I-do-say-so-myself. I then proceeded to not be a litter bug and picked up the wrapper and throw it in the trash bin.
After of about an hour and a half at the park (it took us an hour to get there) we had had enough and went back our “ice box” (what we called our air conditioned hostel room)
And had a nap and then went to this sweet little restaurant where we had soup that consisted of too much cheese (Stephanie would disown me for saying that).
And went home feeling full and rather sick.. (The idea of cheese made Catherine shudder afterwards)
OHHH, another point that fits under this headline, the SINGING!!! Oh my gosh!! The SINGING!! Catherine didn’t stop with singing!!!! the “bounty the quicker picker upper” song will always be in my head along with the theme song to “reading rainbows”. LOL.
OHH and at one point during dinner Catherine started singing Elvis songs… I have to admit I did my fair share of singing too. I’m surprised we didn’t get arrested for indecent singing in public places.
“Crazy”(pissed) transvestites taken off bus by police in Kingston Ontario. Okay, I’ll start off by saying I’m not sure how accurate this headline is. Under Statute 1.1 under the Press Act I don’t need to worry about that anyways. I’m not sure what term is more P/C Cross-dressers or transvestites but anyways, they were simply men in woman’s clothing and they had make-up kits and wigs. Moving along, we’re not exactly sure about what happened and who started the confrontations, this band of asshole young people who are disgusting bigots or the people who were taken off the bus. All we know is that the young bunch of jerks got to stay on the bus but the other two got taken off by police and were yelling at the officers when we left. Apparently they were being disrespectful to the driver and everybody on the bus but I wouldn’t be surprised if one of those little arsenal regions made a comment that set them off.. so anyways, I’m reserving judgement on the c “crazy” part but crazy-pissed seems like an accurate descriptor. After we got on the bus they were all like “don’t sit in the yuckiness” (which how they referred to the seats where the couple were sitting. Urg I hate young people, but I can’t even really call them that because they seemed about our age. Bunch-of-creeps!!!
Seriously, I felt dumber just sitting near them! What was very funny was that one of the girls got locked in the bathroom as we were backing up and started flying around.. I had to keep from laughing out loud!
On the first night we went to the Eaton Centre and to the Cinoplex to see Julie and Julia. On the corner of St. Catherine street or (Rue du St. Catherine) there is bout the biggest (and probably most expensive) HMV I’ve ever seen! (Scott you would have been in Heaven)
There is a TIM HORTONS in the Cinoplex… I have to admit, if the Cinoplex here every tries to stop me from bringing in timies, they have a fight on their hands!! LOL! Oh, and Catherine found that it was four cents more expensive in Montreal. She was outraged, I mean, she just flew into a rage! (or as much of a rage you might picture her getting into which is to laugh and say “I am outraged”)
We found it comical that we both ended up going into our places of work. Catherine a Metro and me an Indigo. LOL, it was kind of funny considering we’re both on vacation but. Oh well! LOL! We needed to eat, and read, RIGHT?
OHHH and Catherine told me about “When Animals Attack” saying that Tarantulas and Black Widows are deadly, but according to the reading I’ve done, neither of them are usually, but in some cases people have been known to die from allergic reaction to their venom. Though there is this brown spider dude that can kill and is found in the southern states (scary) Apparently the site is appalled that so many innocent look-a-like spiders that aren’t dangerous are getting killed for fear of this mega-killer-spider-dude. AND DID YOU KNOW THAT ONLY 25 OF THE 1500 SPECIES OF SCORPIONS ARE DEADLY??? Apparently Arizona has these deadly scorpions and spiders **note to self, never move to Arizona** Oh yeah, did I tell you that Catherine talking about killer spiders gave me nightmares??!?? IT DID! :-P
All-in-all fun for the whole family! :-P
Hope this post has been sufficiently entertaining as well as informative.
Okayk, so here was my day yesterday! It was an actually a pretty good day!
I went downtown with my mom first thing in the a.m. (I was dead tired) but a coffee and green tea fixed that!!! I went to yoga which was fantastic!!! I felt so great (hungry but great) afterwards (today I hurt like hell, but I love it because it's a good kind of pain meaning that you just worked your muscles a lot more than usual) !! Went to the mall with Cath where I had veggie and chicken soup and ice cream!!!!! (YUM)
then I have a nice walk home, with a cool breeze!!! I saw two carts from the metro along Bayridge and looked at them, looked back at the metro store, said "screw it" and took them back to the store. I have many reasons for doing this but it was mostly because Catherine said they cost a lot of money and it would be pure lazzyness not to! I had no rush to get home, nothing else to do!! and Besides, if somebody wanted it outside their house and was counting on people being too lazy to bring it back I would love nothing more than to piss them off because frankly, it isn't very nice taking the carts from the store... There are collaspible ones you can buy at like, Zellers and those places so... dont be cheap and by a little cart if you dont have a car and wanna get your food home! I know it's hard but it can still be done... Or get a big backpack! That's what I do when I dont have my car and I need food from the store, I bring my backpack so that I wont have to carry those heavey ass bags all the way home! And another reason is that it looks trashy! Carts scattered along Baybrdige... "look kids, there's the nice park, swings, groshery cart with trash in it." One of them did have trash in it... I am not going to lie, I was not a good enough person to clean it out.. I was like "screw that, itr's nice enough of me to just bring the damn things back"
then after that me and my mom made homemade soup (which I'm going to have like, right now!) then I went to bead and read my book club book for a half an hour and slept!!! and I slept in today because there was no early yoga... I'm a little disapointed because I was going to go early to yoga Thursday but I can't because there is no early yoga.. it's every second day... mon, wed, fri and that's it... but I can go Friday after work and Sunday.... I could go Wednesday but if Catherine is feeling up to rock climbing I wanna go.. and I could go to a later one today, which I might... My mom is getting her hair done so I could go down for four thirty and do a yoga class until six and I'd probably still beat her out... But Mel wants to do something so maybe I'll ask her to do something downtown so that I can just head down to the yoga studio afterwards?!?
Anywayas, yesterday was a very simple but awesome day! One of the most relaxing days I've had in a long time!!!
