Thank you everyone who replied about my dad, you all rock. He's doing fine considering what happened. He'll be off work for awhile and the doctors think there won't be any issues with his injuries. Something must be in the water this week because the day after dad got attacked another bus driver was verbally assaulted and the police had to get involved. Then today another bus driver was physically assaulted (he's from a different company that dad drives for), but still this is all so strange. All the assaulter's were different people, so it's not one guy doing all of this. Maybe people are grumpy because of the weather, all we've had is rain and more rain and the temperatures averaging about 12-20°C (53-68°F). Thankfully we're not back east, I heard it got to 50°C (122°F) with the humidity in Toronto; I can't even begin to imagine being in that type of heat.

NEW HOBBIT VIDEO BLOG! Just seeing so many of the old cast from LOTR made me so happy. GAH! Thanks for ruining my life again, PJ.


Serious, Cate Blanchett, STOP BEING SO FLAWLESS!!!!


I like how they dubbed Aidan the 'sexy dwarf' and all the others were making fun. While I find Aidan very attractive I'm still going to stan for Dean/Fili, he'll probably be my Orlando of these films, JUST WARNIN' YA.

I just got home from the hospital. Tonight my dad, who is a bus driver, got assaulted by some crazy guy because he wouldn't give him a free ride. The guy just started beating my dad over the head with a Thermos and went ape shit. All over a stupid $3.75 bus fare. Long story short is that a few people came to my dad's aid and the police and ambulance were called in. The guy who assaulted my dad didn't run, so the police were able to arrest him and take him away. Dad was taken to emergency and had x-rays and a CT scan done on his jaw and head and thankfully everything looks okay and he's already home. He'll be sore and bruised, but we're just so thankful that this lunatic didn't have a knife or a gun or some other kind of weapon otherwise things could be a lot worse.

And you know what? I was a witness to all of this only I didn't know it. The Starbucks I work at is across the parking lot from the bus exchange where he stops at and that's where the guy got on. I was working tonight and at I could see all the police cars, ambulance and stuff happening but I was too far away to actually see that it was my dad. We all just thought that someone had an accident or something, but nope, it was my daddy getting wailed on. I phoned my mum on my break and I just casually mentioned what I say and then she said she got a call from Karen (the bus dispatcher/main operator for everyone at the bus company) and well, you know.

I swear if I wasn't about to start university in September I think I would move to some tiny island somewhere. Can life just not be complicated for two minutes? Please?
bunnylove: (Happy Holiday Doggie!)
elvensapphireMy Wifey, I received your card today!!!! Which is odd since there is no post on Sunday's, but it is only because no one checked the mail box on Friday, so YAY!!! Thank you very much. It is now with my other cards. ♥ ♥ ♥

I hope everyone had a good or a relatively good Christmas. Mine was actually pretty good; I wasn't really expecting much (both out of the actual holiday/presents), but overall it was nice. Mum and I stayed home and did nothing and dad came over for Christmas Eve/Day. We basically ate, watched TV/movies, ate, slept and ate some more.

Now the oblig present moment:

You sometimes when you make up a Christmas list and you put down something that you're 99% sure you won't get, but thought you'd put down anyway? Or just set yourself up for relatively low expectations overall? That's kind of how I was feeling about some stuff on my list; most of the stuff I put on I knew I had a fair chance at getting, but a couple of items I was like 'that'll never happen, but whatever. *writes it down anyway*. Yeah, well that 1% did happen because my dad got me two things I didn't really think he would.

1st: the Kobo eReader. It's so cute and tiny and cute and book-like. :D It's more of a basic eReader with not a whole lot, but for what I want/need it for it'll do perfectly. I also know 100% that this will work within Canada. I got so confused looking at other eReaders on the market and hearing that they worked fine in Canada and then hearing they didn't and people had a lot of hassles with them. So there we are. I also got gift cards to the book store where I can buy books/ebooks and now I cannot make my mind up as to what I want now. *headdesk. The cool thing is with the Kobo is that they pre-load 100 classic novels (i.e. Sherlock Holmes, Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, War and Peace ect.) onto it when you buy it, so even if I cannot make my mind up as to what I want to buy I do have a lot of choices to choose from right now.

2nd: SEASON 1 OF SHERLOCK (BBC) ON DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!1 Since the invention of boxed set tv seasons my dad has never once bought me one before even though they show up on my lists every year. I am very excited. :D

But I think the best present of all is the pair of slippers my mum bought me from Superstore (like WalMart). She got me these nice light grey slippers that can be worn both inside and outside, but she realized when she was wrapping them on Christmas Eve that she picked up one Large sized slipper and one Small sized slipper. XD So now I have a slipper for one foot.

Today I had to work the Boxing Day morning shift. I haven't worked a Boxing Day in about 4/5 years and I remember why I hate to. The second we opened our doors at 7AM it was lined up to and pretty much out the door from that point on. It was crazy. PEOPLE, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO SLEEP IN ON BOXING DAY!!! I hate working retail on occasions like that. For those of you who may not be familiar, Boxing Day in Canada is like shopping on Black Friday in the US, tons of deals/sales go on and it's nuts. I had to get up at 5:30am this morning (I have not been up that early for any purpose in years) and I fully support that 5:30am should be illegal. I am going to bed soon and it's probably the earliest I've been to bed since I was, like, 10 years old. Can you tell I'm a night person? :P

[livejournal.com profile] donna_c_punk, I received the book yesterday! Thank you so much, I cannot wait to read it. :)

Speaking of reading, I finished the first Percy Jackson and the Olympians book. I enjoyed it a lot and liked the idea of all the Greek mythology. Not my favourite, but I probably will read the next one at some point.

I'm pretty addicted to Tumblr and all the stuff on there. I love just posting random crazy shit and looking at pretty things.

Now to get ready to get my passport photos taken and go out to dinner. Dad's taking us out for a late birthday dinner in honour of mum's birthday that was on Tuesday.
bunnylove: (Xmas - Bauble)
I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. I had a nice one, way better than last years. The weather was gorgeous and even though we didn't have a white Christmas it was nice. Dad spent the night at our place since he doesn't like being alone on Christmas, plus it saved mum and I getting up super early to go over to his place for breakfast and presents. Christmas Eve we watched A Muppets Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life, I love those movies so much. The lasagne I made was also a big hit, so yummy and so much left over that we'll have it for a few more days.

I made eggs Benedict for breakfast and it was super yummy. I don't eat pork any more so I bought some of that turkey bacon and I really liked it. I'll definitely use it again. After breakfast/brunch we just vegged for a bit, then dad had to leave to go to a friend of a family's Christmas dinner. Mum and I then went to go down to visit my grandma in the hospital (she's in the extended care unit). This is the first Christmas my grandma couldn't attend my aunts dinner. She's 92 and is basically invalid and yesterday we found out that she barely speaks any more. We think because she can't really hear much any more she doesn't understand and doesn't know how to respond. Either way it was a nice visit and we gave her some treats. After that we went to my aunts for the traditional dinner and family visit/present exchange.

So yes, very nice Christmas and I'm glad it went off so well.

And of course the traditional list of swag from the foam:

- Four Books (Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella, Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong, Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris)
- DVD's/Blu Ray: The Proposal, Sleeping Beauty (Disney) and Julie & Julia
- A scarf and socks
- Some bath stuff (hand cream, soap, lip balm ect.)
- $50 gift certificate to Old Navy
- $50 gift certificate to Penningtons
- A nice fleece vest*
- Chocolates
- Movie passes (which will come in handy since mum and I will probably got see a movie on New Years)

So really it wasn't a bad haul and mum's going to get me season four of SPN, she ran out of time to go get it, so I have that to look forward to in the next few weeks.

*The vest... This is kind of a funny story. A few weeks ago I went to Old Navy to get mum a fleece jacket because they were dirt cheap and could afford one for her. The fleece jacket I picked out was a nice dark grey and very comfy. Christmas morning when mum opened hers up she loved it, but I could also sense that something was 'off'. Anyway, I didn't pursue the issue until I opened up my vest from mum. It turns out it was the exact same fleece jacket (colour, material ect) that I got mum, only it was a vest. *facepalm* We had no idea that we had gotten each other almost the same thing. I guess we know each other pretty well. Now we can go out in our almost matching clothes! :D

Like I said, I hope everyone had a good holiday! Also, Happy Boxing Day to all those who have Boxing Day. :)
bunnylove: (Repo! - Blind Mag)
Yesterday my dad and I went out and had lunch and I guess it's a good thing we did, because I was sitting straight across from him and noticed that he could only blink from one eye. For a little bit I freaked out that maybe he had a stroke, but other than having the left side of his face frozen he could talk fine. After lunch we went to the clinic and the doc said it was Bell's Palsy. He's now on some super drugs and hopefully it'll clear up in a few weeks. I love how he didn't even seem to notice any of it, the only think he did say was that his eye was bugging him-- like there was something in there, but otherwise he didn't think to go to a doctor or anything. *facepalm* Men.

I've done nothing today and that's fine by me. I've just loafed around and watched tv and movies.

So it's now official that mum and I have two new kitties. Charlie and Lolla have both decided to make themselves at home here. I had to play with Charlie for about an hour today, he's like the Energizer Bunny or something. Mum and I guess that he's still pretty young because he does look bigger than when he started coming around. He even woke me up this morning by just sitting on my bed. I rolled over and there he was. Lolla is a lot bigger than Charlie, not sure if there's any relation between the two of them, but they're just so friendly (and they're neat, they clean up their dishes nicely). Tinkerbell and Moe seem to not really care unless they get in their faces, then it's hissy time.

I got some shots of Lolla a few days ago, her feet are so fuzzy that they look so big.

Boxing Day

bunnylove: (Default)
Happy Boxing Day to all those who have it! It's snowing sideways right now. Honestly, this snow is just unbelievable. Never have I seen snow like this before here, if it doesn't stop then I'm sure my mum and I will be living in a igloo soon.

I'm glad that it seems that everyone had a nice Christmas. You all deserve it.

I don't want to say that my Christmas was bad, but it wasn't great either. The power went out the night before and my mum and I were going to pack all the food up and go over to my dad's so we could cook and have Christmas there, but then the power came back on, so we were able to cook here. My dad got stuck in the snow trying to get to our place instead and by the time everyone was in and settled we didn't get our breakfast until about 1pm. Then we opened presents and all that. I got some nice things from my mum and dad (although I know my mum was only able to afford a little bag of chocolates for me). I got a few books: Merle's Door by Ted Kerasote, Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann and The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson. I also got some DVD's: The Dark Knight on Blu-Ray and Tropic Thunder. My main gift was a Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet. Yay! There's no way anyone in my family can afford an Intuos tablet, so I will happily take this one. I tried it last night and it's weird at first, but so far so good. I need to practice more on it before I am totally comfortable in writing/drawing/colouring/whatever. Mum and I still need to go down to my Aunts and exchange presents with them, so I'll be getting a few things more, but overall I'm satisfied.

The rest of the day we just watched movies and stuff. My dad... my dad was ok at first when he showed up, but then his mood soured and he just kinda put a damper on everyone. He's been going through a rough time lately, which we can understand, but he has to drag everyone down with him and act like a baby when he doesn't get his way. He got all pissy when he didn't see dinner being started by about 6 pm. Well then he could start it, mum and I weren't even hungry. He was supposed to go to a family friends for dinner, but he cancelled because he thought that mum and I would need a place to stay for the day since our power was out. That was nice of him to consider us, but you know what? He could have easily gone to his friends for dinner since our power came back on, but instead he decided to sulk and make mum and I unhappy because he didn't get his way or we didn't pack up and go to his place for dinner. By the time he left mum and I just felt so much lighter and we just went back inside to watch another movie.

Ahhh, family. What holiday wouldn't be complete with some sort of drama?

There were nice moments to the day and overall we had a nice time, I just felt emotionally exhausted by the end of the day.

Now we're just going to watch TV and watch the sideways snow outside. It's a freaking blizzard again. o.O
bunnylove: (Colin & Justin: Canada Yaye!)
The last couple of days have been rough. Between my mental meltdown at work and yesterday bringing dad home from the hospital it's been... tiring to say the least. My mum is currently over at my dad's place right now and he seems to doing alright. I feel better today. I'm just going to stay home and putter around.

One bright spot about this week... I HAVE FOUR MORE DAYS LEFT AT STARBUCKS! *Snoopy Dance*

Yesterday while mum and I were at the pharmacy picking up dad's drugs I got most of my Halloween costume. I'm going to be a fairy and I got some awesome wings (pics to come) for $12 (yay for sales) and a wig. I couldn't really afford any big or elaborate costume, so I'm happy that I could get everything for less than $30.

My mum and I are also convinced that Tinkerbell has anger management issues. This morning she was trying to find a way outside and she was rattling around in my blinds and curtains this morning and when she couldn't get out she actually huffed. It was so damn cute and then she just walked out of my room.
bunnylove: (Doctor Who - Neck porn)
Mother's really are a wonderful thing. Especially when they field about a dozen phone calls in one day from a distraught daughter at work and two of those calls of her sobbing saying she can't take it anymore. Needless to say her just being there for the small things makes me feel a ton better. Long story short today at work was just right out of hell and I ended up having an epic anxiety attack and just breaking down. I called my boss just bawling and he just said to shut down the store and get the hell out of there. As much as I don't want to go back I still have another four days to work there. It could be worse, I could not have another job to get me away from that atmosphere and who knows how long I would have to stay.

I guess everything just came to a head today. From the moment I got up today things just went wrong and I guess the stress of dad being in the hospital got to me too. He had his hip replacement on Thursday and is doing well, but he's been really sick the past couple of days from the drugs they've been giving him. This is actually the first time he's ever been in the hospital for a surgery/recovery.

I'm thinking I need to have a nap or something, I'm exhausted and I got up at noon today. :\
bunnylove: (GG - Alexis flowers)
So there was bad communication between my dad and I about the appointment with the credit union on Tuesday, so I had to reschedule it for next Wednesday. I hope it won't take too long, because I have to register for the course as soon as I can.

I'm watching Happy Gilmore right now. I love this movie. The price is wrong, bitch.

Today I just kinda lazed about and didn't really do much. I did clean Hiro's fish tank, so I think he's happy about that. I also made dinner for mum and me. She bought this new burger seasoning mix so I made some yummy burgers.

Tomorrow I hope to get a haircut and then mum and I may go look at ice cream cakes and order one for my birthday. I'm not sure what to get this year. I would love to get naked Winchesters on it, but I don't know where the nearest erotic cake shop is. :P

I'm sure most of you know about Jared and Sandy breaking up and the wank that happened on ONTD about it. It makes me sad this whole stupid situation happened. It's their lives, not ours, so it's none of our business why they split. I just hope they find happiness. I'm sure there's going to be a surplus of J2 fics where Jensen comforts Jared about this whole situation. Ah, SPN fandom, you never fail to provide. I just wish it wasn't so bat shit crazy, otherwise I'd be in it a whole lot more.

Does anyone know how to grab video's off of hulu.com? Or is it even possible. I tried looking it up and seeing if there was a way, but I wasn't very successful.

I have the strong urge to play some video games, so I may do that after the movie. I'm thinking some Crash Bandicoot or Sonic.
bunnylove: (Supernatural - Bad Day for Puppy)
I'd just like to thank everyone who sent me their love and thoughts over the past couple of days. They haven't been that great. I honestly thought I had a good shot at it and just felt so right about it. I guess I was wrong to keep my hopes up. Unfortunately the letter they sent was pretty vague, which means that there was nothing specific to as why I didn't get in. I'm going to try and find out why, but I won't hold my breath.

I keep going back and forth between emotions. Part of me is OK and knows I can try next year for the 2009/2010 course. But there's this other part of me that just feels like an utter failure and feels like I've let so many people down. For those of you who have known me on here for a long while know that mum and I haven't had it all that easy over the past few years, so I finally thought this was my shot at moving on with my life. To finally start something new. I partially feel ashamed as well, because I know that all my friends from high school and some co-workers I've know for a few years have gone through school and are now graduated. They're starting their lives and I feel left behind.

I think one of the worst things is that I put so much into this portfolio and tried so hard and now I can't even look at it because all I see at the moment is failure. Yes, I know that sounds a bit over dramatic, but for the moment it's true. I think I just need some time to process and digest it. I know my feelings about this will change in time and I may not be as hard on myself. Hell, it's only been two days.

Having said all this I do have some options. There's a ten week certificate course I can take over the summer that is like a mini version of the course I applied to, but unfortunately I cannot afford to take that much time off of work. I'd loose my benefits and there's no way I'd be able to pay the bills. With mum on temporary disability her income isn't as good as it was and we're barely scraping by as it is. There is one option is to get a loan from the bank, but I don't know if they'd give a student loan that small. The course itself is about $2000 and then I'd need about $1500-2000 for living expenses. I already know I can't get a regular loan because of the one I tried to get a few months ago and got shot down for that. What I may be able to do is do one or two weeks of the ten week course. I have some vacation hours and I can use them to fill the void for a week or two. There is a course I can take in the fall over 8 weeks or something like that, so I already know I'm going to do that.

Dad and I had a fight over it earlier today and I just ended up having a breakdown. Mum had to try and keep me quiet because I was ranting and screaming kinda loud. Dad doesn't get how tight our money is and thinks I'm just making excuses not to do this summer program. I know he means well and he loves me, but he just doesn't understand. He has a habit of wanting to help and give advice, but in the process make you feel like a total shit and failure. We're going to talk and I'm going to try and make him realize that even with cutting costs and everything it's just not feasible with the way things are at the moment. I mean I'll still try, but sometimes things cannot be worked in your favour.

I took yesterday off of work because I just couldn't put on my 'happy face' and deal with customers. I had to go to the mall and mail something and mum took me for dinner at the food court and then some window shopping. We met a nice parrot in the pet shop named Pidge and he could meow like a cat. I think he has an identity crisis.

Speaking of cats there is one little bright spot that happened to mum and me. We got a flier in the mail earlier this week about a new vet office opening up and they were having an open house and giving out free examinations and vaccinations. How awesome is that? Moe and Tinkerbell were due for their shots and we've been worrying about it because we couldn't afford another vet visit and vaccination. I only had to work in the morning so mum (but some god given miracle) was able to get BOTH of them in their carriers and in the car to take them to the vets. How cool is that? Poor Moe was freaked out, but he got his boosters and rabies shot. Tinkerbell didn't get her shots because the vet didn't want to give them to her because her abscess was still healing. She did give her a shot of antibiotics and some more drops to put on to get rid of it. We bring her back in a week or so to get her booster shots and the vet said since we couldn't get the free vaccination today she'll give them on the house next time. Even though I had to pay $80 for a free visit it was still a great deal.

Tomorrow mum and I may see a movie or may not. We're debating between Iron Man or Indy if we do go out.

Tonight I was lazy and mopy and I ordered pizza and watched the first X-Files movie. I hadn't watched it in so long and gah! Love them. It was the first movie I ever saw more than two times in the theatres. And I totally forgot that Locke was in it and went Boom!

I also realized that my birthday is in less than a month. o.O I've been so wrapped up in everything that I'd forgotten. *cough*wishlist*cough*

Oh, and Who would you ship me with?

Geek food

Jan. 21st, 2008 12:31 am
bunnylove: (Conan - mmmmm 'stach)
Mum, dad and I all went out for Greek food (almost wrote geek) for dinner tonight. OMG! So yummy! I had my first bite of lamb in years and I still don't like it, even though the seasoning/sauce was divine.

Today I cleaned and organized my room. I bought a bunch of new boxes to put my books in, so they're no longer scattered to the four winds around my room. I'm sure I'll find more around my room though. My room isn't done yet, I still have to organize some stuff and pick out some stuff for give away, but other than that it's a lot better than it was (meaning I can see my floor now).

My mum and I need a new car. The one we have is a 1991 Subaru and it really is a great car, but when we took it in for servicing last week it needs over $3,000 worth of repairs. More than the car is worth, so we need to figure something out. We can't afford the repairs and we can't afford a new/used car. We're going to do our homework and see what's available and dad is going to call a couple people he knows that restores cars to see if they have any ideas/leads. Our only real option is to get a loan from the bank, but mum would never get approved (they'd probably just laugh at her and then call the cops :P ) and I'm on shaky enough ground as it is. Still they may give one to me as long as I have a co-signer.

Tomorrow [livejournal.com profile] gremmie_goo and I start our French class. It should be fun and I'm looking forward to it, since I haven't taken French since grade 8. I don't have the 'I hate school' mentality holding me back, so I'm willing to learn. In honour of our new course, Goo wanted French Conan O'Brian icons from his show last week.
bunnylove: (GG - Lorelai & Rory)
I just finished watching the Gilmore Girls ep where Rory graduates from Chilton. It always makes me cry and think of my own lack of a high school career. :P

It's September, how the hell did that happen? Labour Day was always a source of sadness and anxiety in my house during my school years. I did not look forward to it at all, but now I can be glad it's here because I get the day off. :P My summer was pretty much nothing, just the same as everything else, so I don't have that 'back to school' anxiety. This is actually the very first September where I am 'free'. I've graduated high school and I don't have that hanging over my head. I did it and I don't have to do it again. It makes me smile. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get into college. This is what I want to do next. My only obsticle (besides getting into the program) is money. I'm not worry about paying for school, Dad always said that he would help out in that area. It's everything else. If I do that program it's three years full time and I would maybe only be able to work a max of 2 days a week, so I have no idea how I'd be able to make a full time income to pay for bills and stuff. The rent sucks up about 95% of my mum's pay cheque each month and the rest is up to me.

Of course I'm not going let that put a damper on my dreams, it'll just take me a bit longer to get in and figure out how mum and I can live. One day (I just hope it's sooner rather than later).

My dad's birthday is tomorrow. Since all of us are working we're going to celebrate on Wednesday. I got him a CD and a gift certificate to a book store since he can't make up his mind what book he wants for his birthday.

I'm going to be posting some autumn themed icons at [livejournal.com profile] bunny_icons later today.

Still nothing about Eowyn....
bunnylove: (Heroes - Better than porn)
Moe has a injured leg and he can't even walk on it. :( Mum and I are pretty sure it's an abscess because it looks swollen and mum said she saw a lump. We made a vet appointment today and we...had to miss it. We've learned something about Moe today, he does not want to be touched when he has a boo boo. Like really. I had to dress up in a winter coat, tie a towel around my neck and wear garden gloves to try and get him in the carrier. Unfortunately he managed to wiggle under my mum's bed and he hasn't come out since. I'm hoping he'll come out at some point because he'll need to get it looked at. There's a vet that's open until midnight and if we can get him there tonight that'll be great, otherwise we'll have to wait until tomorrow.

I almost called the cops on my dad this morning. He was nice enough to go pick up the TV for us this morning, but when he came in he didn't bother knocking. He just came in and started bringing stuff in. I was in bed and all I heard were these heavy footsteps coming in and out of the front door. I went outside (not before checking to see if my computer was still there) and I could see his van parked in the driveway. Now I'm going to try and set up my now TV!!!! I'm so excited.

Heroes casting spoilers!! I really hope she's right about this, but reports from other blogs/sites seem to say the same thing. *bounces*

Moe

So, uh, plans kinda changed about dad and Moe.

In the space of two weeks I've gone from having one cat to three (or four if you count Sebastian). This'll be interesting, but I'm hoping it'll work out.
bunnylove: (GG - Alexis flowers)
NEW LAYOUT! I shall miss the boys, but I need something fresh for spring and something just fresh for myself. The first time I saw this pic of Alexis I just fell in love and I knew I had to do something with it.

This morning was a bit rough for me. I had just gotten up and I looked out the window to see Sebastian with a bird in his mouth. I ran out and he ran in, but luckily mum got the bird. The only problem was the bird flew into a window and was in shock. Poor thing. I just held it in my hand and hoped it would calm down. When it didn't fly away I started to lose it (I've had enough with animals dying the past week, thank you), so mum put it in a box with a towel and just put it up on a shelf. We left it alone for 15 minutes and then I took it back outside. I opened up the box and just stroked the birdy and it flew off, probably thinking it'll never come near here again. That's OK with me. I'm just happy it was alright (it even pooped in the box, but I don't blame it, I would too if I were it).

Today I treated myself to some new shoes (they were on sale! :D). They're black slip ons with silver skull and crossbones on them. Now can wear them with my Captain Jack and Will Turner t-shirts.

My dad bought a new/used laptop and he's never worked with Windows XP (his old one was running Windows 98 *shudder*), so he called me up asking how he turns it off. It was funny and cute at the same time.

Everyone should go vote for the bonus round over at [livejournal.com profile] spn_iconathon.

Dad and I went out for dinner tonight to a new restaurant called Memphis Blues BBQ House. So. Effing. Good. I got the half order of ribs and it was so big I couldn't even finish half of it! I'd hate to see the full order. o.O

I made some holiday icons today, go check 'em out over at [livejournal.com profile] bunny_icons. :)

It never fails, whenever Sammy glues Dean's hand to the beer bottle it brings me such pure joy. I love those two.

Today I cleaned out McGee's tank, he's now a happy fish. I also woke up with Sebastian on my tummy. Some days you never know who you're going to wake up with in my household. He's not even my cat. o.O

I love October and I'm sad that it went by so fast, I wish it could be October for longer.

My daddy starts his new job tomorrow. He got laid off for the winter from his old job, but he got a new and better paying job for now, so we're really hoping this will work out. He'll be driving buses around here so there's a chance that I may have him as my bus driver when I take the bus home from work. I'm hoping he'll be able to get me a free bus pass. Taking the bus is damn expensive.

I'm watching The Amazing Race right now and these two chicks just asked the travel agent WHERE LONDON IS!

Is that in India?

How the hell do you not know where LONDON, ENGLAND IS?! *mind boggles*

Today I treated myself to Grey's Anatomy Season One because Wal*Mart had it on for dirt cheap! That's my treat to myself for the next 6 months. LOL But now I can ask for season 2 at Christmas. Yaye!

Dad took me out to lunch today and we had a nice time. I miss hanging out with my dad sometimes, we don't do as much as we used to. I guess because of work and school and all that. I'm surprised at how busy I've been as of late with work and then doing work and school. I'm doing ok with that and I'm happy about it. I have a test next class, just on basics like multiplication, division and word problems, so it should be fine.

Today dad and I went up to the Klahanie Restaurant near Squamish. We hadn't been up there for years, so we only remembered it as 'the restaurant that has the bunnies'. Dad thought it was a lot closer and not as far out as Squamish, but he was wrong. The drive up there was very nice. We took 'The B' (the little sports car dad rebuilt) up there, so I was able to take pictures on the way.

We stopped at a little coffee shop for a drink and to double check where the restaurant was, because at this point we'd have been on the road a good half hour. We went past the Britannia Beach Mine (they filmed some of the X-Files up there and also the episode "Haven" of Dark Angel) and went on for about 15 more minutes and we finally arrived!

The neat thing about the Klahanie Restaurant/Camp site is THE BUNNIES!!!

The large stump with the tree growing from it in the parking lot is where the original two bunnies made home some 30 years ago.

The rabbits found it very easy to escape their confines and today flourish with the conditions they currently enjoy. With acres of grass and woods to nibble on, and lots of space to hop about, you'll find them everywhere around the camp ground. The laws of nature do apply and they face many obstacles such as man, predators, weather, and each other. Although they may have had domestic beginnings, that was a long time ago and they should be considered wild.

Born hairless, blind and helpless, they reach maturity in about six months. They live within large colonial warrens, which they dig themselves. Their breeding season runs through spring and summer with gestation lasting about 30 days then producing four to six young per litter. Some females have as many as seven litters a year! The rabbits are very territorial and do not welcome domestics but may tolerate fertile females and definitely do not make good pets.


They were just everywhere! Baby bunnies, big bunnies, grey bunnies, tan bunnies, multicoloured bunnies, bunnies, bunnies, bunnies. :D The restaurant sold bags of bunny chow for $0.50, so after we ate I went out and fed the bunnies. They liked that. I even got to pet a big grey one. :D

And that was about it. Sadly I couldn't take any of the bunnies home. :( I want one.

Now for pictures!!!
