I have not updated this in a long time.

We're doing a Christmas thing for choir. I like being in choir around christmas - especially since I came back here on the 18th and the first rehearsal was on the 19th.

I can't think of anything to write at the moment.

My other blog looks too much like this one, and I think I'll change it. Maybe.

♦ "Near the Goodhouse building, that green space, it's where they're putting that Tim Horton's Drive Thru."

They are fixing that already pretty good space of road near the Millbrook Mall. Today, to avoid the congested traffic of 1000 people going to the temporary super school, I drove down O'Connell.

I wonder how the new Mayor building (in the empty space where the old co op building used to be) is coming along?

Don't quit your day job, Mr Mayor. You're good at teaching french and history.

 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm giving up on NaBloPoMo, because I don't want to waste my time on the internet.

I'm also re-thinking my blog/journal.

My blog is going to be things I am interested in (however vaguely) and where I'm going to write stuff that people who don't know me might want to read. Lots of categories like space, environment, any books I've read, song I've heard, or movie i've seen (Firefly/Serenity).

My journal is this one.

Speaking of wasting time on the internet, I found a couple of webcomics...

I haven't used this blog in a while. But I need to stop blogging about my life on my other blog. It kind of sucks having two blogs.

♦ That's either a big marshmellow or they stuck toilet paper on the end of a stick and lit it on fire.

List of things to bring campingCollapse )

 
 
 
 
 
 
Every time I get my site working the way i want it to, I start to wonder if I should move to something easier--wordpress, blogger, livejournal. Livejournal and wordpress especially have more of a community.

Diaryland, where I currently am, is old and most of the people on it left years ago. That's a cosmic amount of time in terms of internets.

I get bored of the layout very easily though.
 
 
 
 
 
 
♦ I saw a picture on Ryan's facebook from level two, and decided to get nostalgic (sure beats studying physics).

I like pictures. I also like videos--they move.

Oh, and speaking of pictures from level two...

(teehee I may have promised that I wouldn't put this on...yafro or whatever it was.)



The picture isn't too great but the book is called "How to Dump A Guy". The only problem was that their suggestions were things like "Stop having sex with him".

 
 
 
 
 
 
But the ice show was shiny.

♦ So, I shouldn't be too happy, exams aren't over yet. But it's a likely possibility that I aced that math exam. Except for one question where it didn't cross my mind that the calculator had to be in radians not degrees.

The ice show was really good. The alumni number and the synchro number, looked good from where I was. The seniors number with chairs was shiny, Kalynn did her puppet program and she did spins and jumps with the strings on her skates and her program was shiny, Francine's was shiny too. It was so dark for the finale, with the flashlights, and it looked brilliant.

< / end of me going on and on about the ice show >

Tomorrow, back to studying. It worked for math, why not physics?

In the poetry book for english class, there's a poem called The Armadillo by Elizabeth Bishop. But most of the stanzas are about space, not about armadillos. Then I thought of Armadillo aerospace but googled that and apparently they didn't get their name from that poem.

A google search for both seemingly unrelated topics came up with 9 results. Results 1 - 9 for armadillo aerospace "elizabeth bishop". Nobody else has wondered this?
