Long Weekend

Well, this weekend was the "unofficial kick-off" to summer. However, it certainly didn't feel like it! The weather was chilly and wet. I did manage to squeeze in a number of movies though. In fact, I haven't watched that many movies in that short of time since May 24 weekend of 2002! I watched Hotel Rwanda (very moving) Alfie (not worth the time to watch it) DaVinci Code (pretty good) and Shakespeare In Love (can't imagine why it swept the Oscars) I'm not a big movie-watcher so it's good to get caught up on a few that are on "the list".

On Saturday I was able to wash my car which was nice. It hadn't been washed since the fall! YIKES. I didn't realize how dirty it was until I started washing. I was quite annoyed when I went out later in the day and had a big splotch of bird crap on my door.

Some of my friends from Sarnia came on Saturday. That was fun as we never get a chance to hang out anymore. Karla, Carla and Beck came for a BBQ and a rousing game of Settlers. It was nice to relax and catch up on what everyone's up to.

On Sunday I stopped at Home Depot to buy paint for my kitchen. Next week I'll be doing a little home improvement project. I'm really looking forward to the end result but not so much the work in getting there. Jodi, my roommate, will be in Florida so I'm on my own! I started on the weekend by painting a shelving unit from the kitchen. It looks good now, but ended up taking way longer than I expected. (lots of nooks & crannies) I'll be sure to post a before and after photo of my handiwork. :)

Well, I must go...we are awaiting the arrival of Prime Minister Stephen Harper here in the A-Channel studio. Wow, my first time to see a PM in the flesh. Cool.

YEAH!! Hippies rule! For all of you Amazing Race fans, I'm sure you were jumping for joy with me as BJ and Tyler inched past the Frat Boys to claim the $1 million. Wahoo! This was such a great example of good overcoming evil! If you watch the show, you know that Eric & Jeremy AKA The Frat Boys (who ended up being college drop-outs...not Frat Boys) were absolute PIGS during the race. Unfortunately, they stayed at the front of the pack for most of the race and won lots of trips and extra goodies. For more info. you can check out ttp://

Wow, what a busy week. Work has been crazy this week and my evenings are all filled up so by the time the weekend comes, I'm exhausted. I had my first test in Photoshop this week. I don't know the results yet, but it seemed pretty easy, so I think I'm ok.

This weekend is Mother's Day, so of course, I'm going home to see my Mom. We spent last Saturday together scrapbooking. It was her first time so she was a little nervous, but by the end of the day, she was quite pleased with the results. It was nice to be able to just hang out and not have to worry about an agenda.

Tomorrow night I've organized a "Girls Night Out". A bunch of us are heading to the Palasad to hang out for the evening. Should be a good time and might even turn into a bit of a tradition!

Paul Simon's CD came out this week. I LOVE it. It has a great sound that is different than anything he's ever done. I particularly like "Beautiful" and "Outrageous". He's on SNL tomorrow night and hopefully about to release some tour dates soon.

As I was talking to my friend Murray this week about Paul Simon...he made a comment that I liked the sound of. Nothing I hadn't been told before, but the way he said it I thought was cool... He said when I was born, there was a tear in the fabric of time. Meaning, of course, I should've been from a previous generation.

Well, yet again, I've left it a while between posts. My sister e-mailed me today to tell me to update. hmmm, what's new? Well, I started my photoshop class last week at Fanshawe College. It is 10 weeks and I think it will be really cool (and challenging) I'm also continuing my line dance lessons. Last week was the first week I felt like I was "dancing" rather than just methodically moving my feet while counting 1-2-3-4. It was fun.
Last weekend Char & I went to the Petrolia townwide yardsales. It was great fun, despite getting up super-early. I actually got some great deals including a blender, deluxe scrabble, Trivial Pursuit 90's edition and an IKEA storage unit. It's always a fun tradition.
This weekend my mom is coming down. It is the first time she's actually staying over at my house. It is part of her birthday present from me...we are scrapbooking all day on Saturday at the Scrapbook Studio. It should be a good time!
Does anyone watch Amazing Race? Last night's episode was the best one I've seen in a while...the ending was amazing! (pardon the pun) I so want the Hippies to win...and not just because they're hippies. If not them, Ray & Yolanda. The Frat Boys and Mojo need to go...NOW. Next week is the finale of my favourite show Gilmore Girls. I'll be so upset if Lorelai & Luke break up!! Rory & Logan should split though...don't like him. (I know, its just a show)
Guess what happens on May 9? Paul Simon's new CD "Surprise" comes out! I'm so excited! He'll be on SNL on the 13th and will be touring sometime soon. Wahoo! Matt Costa is coming to Toronto this summer (twice) I'm hoping to see him.
Well, that's all for now.
