Yeah, so I haven't posted anything in forever. >>;

1) Christmas #1: On the 23rd the immediate family did Christmas. I got a couple movies, and my cell phone. Also a book, and a gift card, and a chair for at my computer. It was nice. Most of my Christmas from Mom and Lee was the phone though, lol.

2) Christmas #2: On the 24th, we all went up to Grandma's place to do prep for the turkey and everything the next day. That night we gave Grandma the gift that my brother and I got for her, and she gave us our cards with monies in them, because she's been too sick to go out shopping. The next day the whole family was over and we had dinner, and did the family gift exchange. I ended up with a wok set, which is awesome because I'm the one who bought that one because I wanted it. XD;

3) Dad couldn't make it up in time for Christmas, so he's coming up this next weekend to exchange gifts. THE GIFT I ORDERED FOR HIM BEFORE CHRISTMAS BETTER BLOODY BE HERE BY THEN, DAMMIT. >__O;

3) Did nothing for New Year's, though that morning I did get my cell activated. Thank God I have three months free texting, because despite not planning on using it much I've been texting A LOT. I'll need a text plan when my free time runs out. XD;;

4) My RY secret santa gift from [ profile] toxicatedpoison got here the other day! Eee! It's a pretty crystal heart pendant that she got engraved with "Sena". ILU SO HARD PRONNIE. ♥

5) Speaking of RY, tomorrow we are officially on hiatus for two weeks as a community, so that Steph, Maddie and I can kind of revamp it, and add in more plot points and get everything back on track. WE SHALL RETURN.

6) My birthday was yesterday! 8D ...I did nothing for it, and didn't get any presents, though a bunch of people wished me a Happy Birthday. At some point this week Mom is taking me out to buy me a new camera though, she just hasn't had the time until now.

7) Yesterday I met up with Pam and Ryuu-chan at the Tim Hortons at the corner, and we hung out there and talked for almost two hours. Then we came back here and hung out some more. It was really nice because I haven't seen any of my RL friends in over a year. Turns out Pam is living in town again (sort of anyway, she's actually just outside of town), so hopefully I can see her some more now, at least until she moves to Alberta in a year or so.

8) One of my new wigs (for Haine cosplay from The Gentlemen's Alliance) came in a couple days ago, and I FREAKING LOVE IT. It's long and curly and light brown with blonde streaks, and looks freakishly good on me, or so everyone is telling me. XD; Now I wish I hadn't cut my hair so short so I could dye and curl it lol.

A bunch of doujinshi I ordered a while back came in today. Happy One-Day-Early Birthday to me! :3 There was four sepparate doujin, and then one thicker one that's an anthology. Four of them were a smaller size than the rest of my collection. O.o; Whatever. XD;

I'd also bought some earrings for my AU!Demyx costume in the summer, and they came in... and both pairs were the wrong ones. UGH. So I emailed the person I bought them from. I'll probably send them back. They're cute, but not the ones I wanted.

Tomorrow Ryuu and Andy are coming over for a short visit, since I'm not having a birthday party this year. Pam might be coming over on Saturday for a bit. Man, I miss everyone. I haven't seen Michelle in about two years. D:

OMG, and by the way, I FINALLY got an email from C.A.; she left for Japan in September, and I have some stuff to send her, so I emailed her in October asking for her address. But she fails at keeping in touch, so I didn't hear back from her until about a week ago, and her whole email was

"Sorry, you know how I am with these things. Long story short, I ended up living in South Korea. Merry Christmas."

WTF C.A.?? XDD That's too short! It doesn't qualify for "long story short" dammit! And she still didn't give me her address, even if it is in S. Korea. She can be so frustrating! the same time, it was so C.A., so after I stopped swearing at the computer screen I just had to giggle. =D;;
senashenta: (Dance! Dance! Dance!)
Friday there was a surprise going away party for C.A. out at Jodi's parent's place; they live in the middle of nowhere. So just before 5, Ryuu picked me up and we went to Jodi's to get directions to where the party was supposed to be. Then we had to drive for about an hour to get there. OH WELL.

Pam and Kevin were already there when he arrived, along with a couple of guys from Peterborough that I didn't know until then; Jordan and Peter. Normally I have trouble talking a lot with people I don't know, but Jordan and Pete were so awesome and nice. They were about the only people there that I didn't already know that I could deal with though. >>;

Haha, everyone was late including C.A. and Jodi. xD; It was this huge secret, and we were all out in the garage waiting for them to get there for like two hours. All six of us, wtf. XDD;; Out in the garage was this cutout thing... you see them on beaches and in tourist places, the big pics with the faces cut out for people to take photos in/with? There was one in the garage that was a mountie riding a moose (and smoking a joint for some reason, lol.), so we all crowded behind that to jump out, and Kevin and Ryuu stick their faces in. Then instead of popping out right away, we just waited to see how long it would take for her to notice them.

It was funny just to listen to. She was like ", that kinna looks like Kevin..." and then there was this long silence. We all sniggered and then jumped out at her. It was priceless.

After they were there, we just sat around in a circle on lawn chairs and talked, and other people drank (Ryuu and I don't drink.) Ryuu and I had brought C.A. gifts, so she opened them. She got a t-shirt from Ryuu, and I gave her a bunch of jam and a Japanese dictionary. <3

More people did come after a while, and there was about 20 in the end. Then there was a band because the lead singer/guitar was Jodi's boyfriend so she insisted. HAHA. They were really good! They only did covers, but I really enjoyed them.

I had a lot of trouble though, because of the crowded space, the number of people, the loud music and the dancing (plus because of all the above it was very hot), so I spent about half the night sitting just outside the garage, listening to the music and looking at the stars so I wouldn't end up having a huge panic attack. Pete was really nice and sat with me for a while the one time, and Ryuu and Jordan ended up outside with me later and we talked about media (movies/actors/books/etc.) for like two hours. ^_^;

The band finally packed up around 3am, and most of the people left (the ones that weren't spending the night). It was fun, and kind of stressful, and camping-parties last freaking forever. -.-;;

The ground around Jodi's parent's place is really uneven, and it was raining off-and-on all night (so no campfire! D=), so the grass was wet... and we lost power for a while. (Jodi's dad set up the generator so the band could still play!) But because of all that, I fell like fifty times. I think I managed to find all the potholes in the entire lawn. It was kind of funny, actually, because I don't even drink and I was the one falling all over the place. XD;; DOH.

Anyway, so my right ankle is all swollen and sprained, and my left knee is all cut and scraped up. Ah well, it's not so bad. Imma limp for a while, though.

Then when I finally got home I crashed... and slept for like 14 hours. Something like that. >.>;;

All in all, it was fun and I'm glad I went. I don't get to see Pam and Kevin much, and I was glad to meet Jordan and Pete, and spend time with C.A. and Ryuu. I knew I'd have trouble with the sound level and the number of people, so that at least wasn't a surprise. At least I could get out and have some fresh air to get over it, and people were nice to keep me company. :)


So that was Friday and yesterday. =D

Photoblogging Day 51,52,53 )

OH, AND! Before I forget, Friday afternoon I finally mailed the last round of P.O.S. packages! So [ profile] kierseth, [ profile] cat_mcdougall, [ profile] etcetera_cat, [ profile] smoulderedtears and [ profile] lipstickcat have big heavy boxes coming their way! But they were mailed ground mail (because they were so big and heavy... except for etc's, it's uber heavy but not as big as the others) for money reasons, so they'll take a bit to arrive. Hopefully everyone will get theirs by a month from now.

Like a week from now I also have to mail about 12 Christmas packages too. No wonder I don't have any money. >>; lol.

EDIT: YEY Johnny Depp biography~ X33

EDIT 2: Oh, and when Ryuu picked me up on Friday she gave me my present from when she went to China a few months back. "Present" and not "souvenir" because it's edible. lol. She got me pocky and pretz; dark and white chocolate pocky, and shrimp and pizza pretz. <3 Apparently it's really cheap there, like 50 cents a box. O.o;
senashenta: (Idiot Savant)
Yesterday I was supposed to go out and do grocery shopping with Lee and Sarah, but instead I got together with Ryuu and Pam and Kevin and had coffee. Except I didn't, because I don't drink the stuff. >>;

While I was out with them we went to the dollar store (which I guess is where I lost that pony charm ;.;) and I picked up a handful of odds-and-ends for my crafts.

Then last night Lee took Mom, Sarah and I out for dinner. Mom wasn't feeling well. I hope she feels better today, it would really suck for her to be sick for Christmas.

And this morning Sui-chan dropped off a Christmas present for me. =3 I was asleep when she came by, though. I suck! Oh well. -.-;; She got me a pair of huge fuzzy slippers which scare the hell out of Loki! XD; and a teddy bear thing that's dipped in wax, and a calendar frame and body spray and a key chain. <3

This morning was the memorial service for Pam's dad. I didn't have to go, but I wanted to, to support Pam and whatnot. On the way I stopped and got some flowers. I didn't stay for the whole thing (the funeral was right after the visitation/memorial), but Pam said she was glad I came. She seems to be doing alright... anyway, C.A., Michelle, Steve and Kevin were all there, too, so I felt okay with leaving because I knew she wouldn't be by herself.

Then when I got home... RANDOM [ profile] lipstickcat PACKAGE! ^__^

Thank you so much! The postcard made me practically die of laughter, and the mouse is way too cute~~ My windows are now covered in little ducks. XD Eheheh~

EDIT: And OMG My Little Pony pens! =3

EDIT #2: *glomphuggles [ profile] smoulderedtears* X3 *Mp3 love*
senashenta: (Just Obsessed)
YAY no more angst!RP... for now, anyway. ^__^ Now it's all smut instead.

Also, the memorial for Pam's Dad is on Monday, and even though I didn't really know him (I only met him once or twice), I'm going to go to support Pam. Which means that I'm not going to the Chiropractor this week, but oh well.

Oh, and I'm going to Grandma's on Tuesday afternoon/evening, and staying with her for two or three days. :)
senashenta: (Urge To Kill RISING)
This has been a crappy summer for my RL circle of friends.

C.A.'s Grandpa died the day she got back from Africa; two weeks later, my Grandpa died. Then today, C.A. called me to tell me that Pam's Dad died yesterday or the day before. He was playing with his grandkids (Pam's sister's kids), and sat down... and just never got back up again.

I'm so worried about Pam right now...

The faster this bloody summer ends, the better as far as I'm concerned.
senashenta: (iMiji)
So, yesterday... Ryuu-chan and I drove to Peterborough. It's about an hour and a half from here to there. Fun stuff. We ended up staying at Steve's place (he shares a house with C.A. and a couple other people who are at the same university as they are, but C.A. wasn't there) and not at Pam's.

When we got there, we dropped our stuff off, and a few minutes later Pam showed up. Then we all piled into Ryuu's car and went to Walmart, where I raided their MLPs. >^-^;; They had a Beachcomber and a Desert Palm that I nabbed, and a speare Waterfire. They also had a couple of the 2006 releases, but they were in fancy sets (as opposed to basic pony boxes that just have the pony and a hairbrush), so I didn't get any of them. I also picked up some green and blue ribbon from the craft department, and we wandered around for about an hour, poking through various things.

After that, we went to a Chinese food place for supper... we were there for almost three hours, until they were closed. But we talked, and the food was really good. I know it's stupid for me to bounce over the only non-Chinese thing in the restaurant, but they had Lemon Merangue Pie! X3

Then we headed over to Pam's apartment and stayed there and chatted about various things until after midnight. At that point, Pam had to leave to meet Kevin at a party, so Steve, Ryuu and I just went back to his place. Ryuu and I crashed in the seriously overheated living room for the night.

Today when we got up, Ryuu took off for a while to the university campus (she's talking to various professors about co-op placements for the next semester), and Steve and I walked downtown to the BEST CITY BLOCK in existence; three used bookstores side by side, and another one across the street. XD WHOOT.

I ended up picking up The Encyclopedia of Gods by Michael Jordan (lol), and Unicorn Highway by David Lee Jones. The first one is going to come in handy for various writing projects, and the second one had pretty cover art. And it sounds good, of course. ^_~

When we got back to the house, Ryuu-chan was back, and Pam and Kevin showed up a few minutes later. We all visited for a few more minutes, then Pam and Kevin had to leave to go do grocery shopping (I think that was it, anyway), so at that point, Ryuu and I grabbed our stuff and packed it up in the car, then the two of us and Steve drove across town to the Chapters there. Nyahaha~~

I used the gift card that Steve and Michelle got me for my birthday and picked up No Turning Back (The Life and Death of Animal Species) by Richard Ellis, as well as the first two volumes of the Diabolo manga by Ohashi Kei and Kusunoki Kaoru-- which has ABSOLUTELY YUMMY art. =3

There were, of course, many other books/GNs that I wanted, but I didn't have the money for them. At least I had my gift card. ^_^;

Anyway, after Chapters, Steve headed off to where he works to pick up his paycheck, and Ryuu and I piled in the car to come home.

...and that's about it. :)

senashenta: (Swept Away)
It's 7:32 in the morning, and I've been up for half an hour... which is actually pretty good, considering my normal track record with the whole sleeping thing. ^_^;

The reason I'm up now is that I've got a bunch of stuff to do today; Mom and I are going to visit Grandma and Grandpa for a couple of hours this morning, after which we have a Chiropractor's appointment. Then when we get back into town after that, I have to mail some packages (ebay stuff), remember to grab a pillow, then call Ryuu-chan to pick me up to drive to Peterborough for the night. I think we're staying at Pam's, but I'm not entirely sure. |_|; I should probably ask...

Right. But first, I need to chat with Cassandra-san for a few minutes. That's how I start most of my days, actually. X3
senashenta: (Default)
Well crap.

Terri went and fsking quit, and now I'm the only trained night staff we have. And this I found out when I got to work last night, and the assistant manager looked at me and went; "oh, gee, sorry, but since you're the only night staff we have now, you're probably not gonna' get your days off this week."

I was like: =_=;;;


So with two months of working there under my belt, I'm being kicked to the top of the night-staff-totem-pole, and it's going to be up to me to freaking train all the new ones!!


*eyebrow tick*

To top it all off, since Terri just up and quit, I had to work with Ryan--he's a good guy and I adore him, but damnitall he does nothing when he's "working"! Nothing! So I spent all night doing my own work, and then had to do all of his work at 6 when the morning crew came in!


...but I made about $10 in tips last night. Which, given that I normally make about $2.50, is freaking awesome. ^_^;; I must have looked really annoyed or really pathetic or something like that.


Even though I didn't go to bed early last night, I still got up super-early (five hours of sleep -_-;;) and hied myself over to C.A.'s house to see everybody before I went to work. ^^

It was a quazi-birthday-party, so we all had pizza and cake and whatnot, and almost everyone was drinking. I was like "ah... I'd better not..." (but I honestly did consider calling in sick and just getting completely pissed, since I was having so much fun.) ^.^;;

Anyway, when I got there everyone else had already been there for about an hour or so, and Michelle was already on her third beer. =_=;; The girl can drink.

Unfortunately, she's a cheap ass drunk, so by the time she finished her fifth, she was so freaking drunk she couldn't even stand up straight. But she still wanted to drink... and we told her "no". Firmly.

The following conversation ensued:

Michelle: Can I have another drink?
Pam: No way. You're too drunk.
Michelle: *barely able to sit up under her own willpower* I am not!
Pam: =_=;;
Michelle: I loooove you Pam! ^^
Pam: That's nice. Stop touching me. You can't have another beer.
Stevie (make note of the name): That's telling her Michelle! Don't let then cut you off!
Michelle: Thanks... I love you C.A.! ^^
Pam: =_=;;;
Stevie: *gigglesnort* ^_^;;

Scenes to come.
