I am currently working on a somewhat ginormous post. It's about the past weekend. I've been working on it day by day, not that it should have taken that long, but I've been juggling things to do. So I'll probably post that tomorrow as a late post.

Anyway, here's a funny story.. The other night, I ordered pizzas (a Canadian and a Hawaiian) from Pizza Hut at 8:45 pm and they said it was going to get here at around 9:39. So we were waiting and it was taking unusually long for it to get here. So I called them up at 10:10 and they said they'd been calling me to ask if I wanted anything else apart from ham because they didn't have any. I thought it was strange that I didn't get any phone calls, so I checked with Evan to see what number he had on his phone, because I knew he had the right number. So it turns out that I had given Pizza Hut the wrong number (which was wrong on my phone too) the whole time. I gave them the last digits as 3232 instead of 3292. Idiot. That's when I realized that if I had the wrong number written on my phone the whole time... then I had the wrong number written on my resume the whole time! Meaning.... I could prolly already have a job by now!! Work places must have been calling me back on a wrong number! So I now have to REAPPLY for jobs. And so today I reapplied to the theater and I got new applications from Superstore. And I have to reapply at the pet store too. AHHH! Oh well. No biggie cuz it's not stressful to apply for jobs. Hopefully the movie theater will call me tomorrow or something, because they asked me if I could start right away =) and maybe if it's a lower pay rate than the Superstore (if they call me) I'll go and work at Superstore because they pay 15.40 an hour for night shifts.
Can't wait to get a job!

Today, I helped my cousin Evan clean the car, then my uncle took us to the mall so I could take money out and we bought pumpkin pie and milk (not with my money and yeah we forgot the whipped cream). Then we played tennis at the tennis court and as usual, I was just goofing off. They're pretty good for their age.
Happy Thanksgiving ye Canadians. I had a great dinner with the fam. Stuffed myself so much I didn't even get to the apple pie.. only after going to the playground with my cousins to play tag and throw a football. They wanted to play and I just went along with it. Then I went up this hill and it was dark and I saw this person. Kinda creepy now that I remember it. I think it was a chick and she was dressed in all black. She was pretty lonely. I ran away though XP and we all went home and my cousin Geomar aka Maverick aka George was telling me this story about how he once saw a ghost once at our grandma's house. It was creepy but I told him he was seeing things. He seemed for real though. Damn.
Anywayyyyy tomorrow's anada deh (another day).

I just realized that I said apple pie instead of pumpkin pie! [Oct 17, 2008)

(hmm... short silence...)

Kev: You mean Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist? XD

(shrieks of laughter from everyone)

In Edmonton

-last night Jay slept over and me, him and Nathan just ate lots of pizza and fried chicken XD
-this morning I took a cab to the airport, and almost forgot my computer monitor completely! thanks to Jay he called me 3 minutes after I left the house, telling me that I left my monitor.
-on the plane, I had a whole row to myself by the window, but I sat by the aisle.
-it's so damn cold in Edmonton. it was around 3 degrees the whole day and it's -2 right now (2:20 am)
-Edmonton looks like Fort Collins, Colorado. the whole way from the Edmonton International airport looks exactly like the way from Denver airport. we even drove around tonight and this big place called Whyte Out (?) looks exactly like Old Town in Fort Collins. it's busier here though (cuz it's Friday) and there really are lots of pretty faces (you were right Steph). it's strange how much it's like Colorado, but I love how slow paced it is here and just the way everything looks, and you can just walk anywhere you want freely. early on today I walked to the mall with my 3 cousins, and we just cut through school grounds and stuff. it was sweet. they even showed me two of my cousins' school. wow I don't know how to write that sentence XD I'm trying to say that two of my cousins showed me the school they went to XD and for a while I actually thought I was in the U.S. and not Canada. like when we were talking about school grades, I told my cousin Evan that the grading system here is different from Canada.. and then I realized that I was actually still in Canada! haha
-first thing I did when we got home (suburbia) was eat. it was heaven. we had filipino food called karekare. I just had to stuff myself.
-the house is pretty cosy. I like it. it's all carpeted and nice. it's suburbia for real. but then again.. they did come from L.A.
-I can't wait to meet people. Steph, hook me up! hehe. Oh and tell me how you liked Hoodwink! The rabbit is the best.
-I just went through my clothes that I was supposed to have received a year and a half ago, but my aunt never got around to sending them to me. I love my Tribal Gear pants.
-I have to sleep now.
-I miss my iMac haha. it should get here next week though.
-oh yeah! during lunch, we were watching Knight Rider, the new series.. and like I predicted.. it is sooooooooooooo baaaaaaad! so cheesy in the worst way, and the acting is terrible. watch an episode and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. I highly doubt it will get a 2nd season hehe.

Hello world. I'm eating sour neon worms right now that I got at the dollar store (I only went to buy duct tape, but ended up buying 2 small pad locks for my bag, Doritos, and peanut butter Kit Kat bars which are yum).
Yes I'm leaving for Edmonton on Friday. I actually just sent off 4 of my boxes to Edmonton. I called a taxi to help me bring my boxes to the post office in Mac's just up the street. The taxi driver wasn't really helpful with my boxes and only one of them was really heavy. He was annoyed too for some reason. I think his name was Ahmed. It ended up just being 7 bucks. I asked him if he took VISA, and he scowled me so I told him I'll run and get cash. I didn't want to tip him but I gave him a dollar anyway.
It cost 147 bucks to send the boxes which should get there in 5 business days. I thought it would be like 300 dollars. But then again I didn't ask for coverage.. which I probably should have.. But it should be ok.
Now all I have left to send is my iMac, which I'll send off on Thursday because I love it too much to let it go so soon.

Anyway, the weekend was really cool. On Saturday I went to the Dominion and LCBO at Yonge and Eglinton to look for boxes but didn't really find any big ones. So then I decided to check up on Jay at Second Cup and ended up staying for over an hour, just talking to him and his buddy Chris, drinking a moccaccino, eating a chocolate cupcake, and I bought us beef shwarmas before heading over to Yonge and Dundas to meet Steph, Josh and Jeff for Nuit Blanche. Jay said he might go, and his buddy said he was already going after work. I told Jay to call me if he was going. Nuit Blanche is an annual art show which lasts all night, and goes on all around downtown and there are different artworks (or concepts) located in different places (like the mall, universities, and even the streets)..
Anyway, we went to the front of Nathan Philips Square where we could see lights flashing through the building's windows, which created animated thing things. Hard to explain. Maybe I'll post up a picture from the internet if I find one. And then we went to the Eaton Centre where there was a giant blue condom-like balloon thing hanging from the ceiling and people were taking pictures of it. I just couldn't stop imagining what would happen if it suddenly fell on everyone under it.
Oh and Steph is going to write about it too, right Steph? And she's going to post pictures up! (Don't let me down, Steph XD)
Then we went back out to look for a place for Jeff to watch Tapout wrestling on TV. And while we were out in the streets, a running gag of Jeff yelling "Tim! Tim!" went on all night. Anyway, I didn't have my ID (which for some reason I never have with me when I actually NEED it) so we couldn't get into a bar. We ended up going to Hooters XD and had 2 pitchers while Steph had her ice tea. One of the waitresses who sat us had beef with these 2 other waitresses. I just remember her going "you know, don't have to be such a bitch to me" or something like that. That was funny. So yeah, we just all sat there talking (mostly about Edmonton and movies and random whatnots) and laughing as usual, and later on, this guy named Kevin Z from Steph's work came to hang with us at Hooters. She warned us about him being weird though.
Then after Hooters, we went out to look at more art stuff. There were so many people everywhere. We walked past OCAD and were hungry so we went into a pizzeria really quick and bought some slices and drinks. I don't even know what pizzeria that was haha.

Anyway I gotta go. Gettin myself an iTouch because it's sexy. I hope I make it before the shop closes. then I'm gonna hang out with Jay at Second Cup. I'll continue this later.
