So, Scott and his family (bless their hearts) listen to Country music, and Scott mentioned this song called Brand New Boyfriend that his niece (who is 3) hears on the radio. When he was over for dinner, she asked him if his new girlfriend would be there. When he said no, she told him to make sure he tells his new girlfriend hello from her. (I'm telling the story second hand, so I'm sure it's not as good as when Scott told me.)
My reaction: awwwwww!!! Talk about her being so totally adorable!!

Thinking of ways I could shake myself out of this funk, I thought about calling the Boyfriend just to hear his voice. I decided against it because, I was
- not wanting to sound cheesy by calling him up and saying, I just needed to hear your voice...
- not wanting to sound like I was checking up on him by saying, hi, just calling to see what you're up to...
- not having other excuse to call him, especially while sitting in the locker room!
- resigned to the fact that I would probably get his voicemail and not actually get to even talk to him.
After blinking to make sure I was actually seeing what I thought I was seeing, I smiled at the waver and was ready to almost burst into tears of excitement. There he was, the Boyfriend, in the flesh, and waving at me!!
Instead of running, I went to the work out area with him, which was probably the best thing to do, to give my knees a break.
AHHHH! Maybe not! I just looked though the track listing for Songs For Polarbears by Snow Patrol and I think the song I want is Days Without Paracetamol... Ugh, it's totally not that song (although I was listening to it at home this morning) because it's not on my ipod. :(
It's not like me to not be able to find a song. Google isn't even helping me at this point. wah!! I want to go home right now because I will be able to find it on my computer. Talk about being frustrated!!

(maybe it's from all the turkey wraps I have been eating for lunch. I have been so dead ass tired lately, with no real reason why, so I have come to the conclusion that it is from the turkey. Only problem is, now I am starving, because I don't know what to eat for lunch if I can't have a turkey wrap!)
So I will share an article Scott sent to me this morning.
15 Things Kurt Vonnegut Said Better Than Anyone Else Ever Has Or Will
1. "I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'"
13. "So it goes." Ahhh, three little words that pack so much meaning!
After reading through it I now was to go back and read all the books I have by him, and buy and re-read his books that I no longer have. Cat's Craddle and Slaughterhouse-five would be the first ones to buy, since they were the first Vonnegut books I read, and I read them so long ago I barely remember what happened in them!!

New Scott (who from now on will be referred to as "Scott" and the Old Scott will now be "Old Scott") ... so Scott took me with him to dinner at his parents' place yesterday. He didn't ask if I wanted to go with him, he just told me that was the plan, a quick bite, no dishes or anything like that, because we were running on a limited amount of time to get to motorbike shopping.
When I finally got through the door (Scott blocked the way for a while because his niece rushed to the door to greet him), I shook his mum's hand and then she gave me a hug. His niece was shy for about 10 seconds, and then she must have said my name a hundred times in the short time I was there, which is impressive because she's 3 an my name isn't the easiest to remember! We chatted about dolls and my little ponies and on being "shhh" when people are on the phone, and she's so sweet I just wanted to scoop her up and squeeze her to death. His nephew was flirting with me across the table, between putting his bowl on his head and his eye in his chocolate milk. His sister and brother-in-law seem very nice. His dad I had met before, and I unintentionally managed to slip in the fact that he abandoned us while snowmobiling in February. When I was leaving, I was told that next time I had to bring Miranda with me. They were so warm and friendly, and I can see why Scott actually likes having dinner with his family all the time.
My point is, Scott cannot be compared to the Old Scott just because they share the same name.
And who are my mother and step-mother to judge my new boyfriend based on the history of an old boyfriend? Here I am, having already met Scott's immediate family and one aunt, and the only person related to me who he has met is Miranda... what does that say about me?
When I first mentioned to my family that I was dating someone named "Scott" my mother and step-mother pretty much had the same reaction. My mother thought it was bad idea to be dating a man with the same name as an ex, as she envisioned my relationship with the New Scott would be like it was with the Old Scott.
Brown hair, blue eyes, both Capricorns... that doesn't mean they would be exactly the same..
And when do I ever listen to my mother?
Two years into the relationship with the Old Scott, he would say we had only been dating 4 months. Almost five months into the relationship with the New Scott and he's saying we've been together 7 months! Maybe they do have some things in common, being bad at math one of them, but at least the New Scott isn't in some stage of relationship denial.
Old Scott and I were together for at probably 1.5 years and practically living together before I ever met his parents, and in the 3.5 years we were together, I don't think his parents met Miranda even once.
New Scott does seem to be keeping me a little bit of a secret. His friends told me it was really only about 2 months ago when he was actually giving them details about his new girlfriend.
I do have a point to make in all of this, which I will make in my next post!
Drifting 'ghost yacht' baffles Australian officials
Last Updated: Friday, April 20, 2007 5:16 AM ET
The Associated Press
Australian rescue workers from Sydney found a puzzling scene Friday on a catamaran spotted drifting off the Great Barrier Reef: sails up, engines running and food on the table, but no crew.
"They got on board and said the engine was running, the computers were running, there was a laptop set up on the table which was running, the radio was working … and there was food and utensils set on the table ready to eat, but no sign of the crew," said Jon Hall, a spokesman for Queensland state's Emergency Management Office.
The vessel's emergency beacon and three life jackets were still on board, along with a dinghy.
It that not spooky?! Read the whole article here.

I got angry! and muttered to Damon that I was just going to change everything to "fuckyou". I paused for a second to think it over, and then immediately changed every work password I could to "fuckyou". Of course I had to use capitals and numbers in some instances because each logon has different password conditions to be met for security purposes.
hahahaha! Here I am, thinking I am so clever, when probably every computer nerd out there has already done the same thing.

Damon, my podmate, says: Oh snap! Angeline is hitting the Rockstars!
Angeline says: Helllll yaaaa! I'm rolling in to work this morning on zeeeero sleep!
I even made my fist into a dorky looking circle to indicate "zero".
ps - I love the Louis Vuitton wedges in the picture posted on the wall (on my desk at work). I ripped the page out of Vogue when I was getting my hair done last month because I loved the shoes and the dress. I'll post the picture later.

ps - shopping with Scott is soooo much fun because he likes to shop too and wasn't trying to hurry me out of the mall ! At one point he even asked me if there were stores I wanted to go to because he felt like he was the one dragging me around from store to store.

My stepmum also gave me an Easter surprise: a very large F*CK YOU. In front of me, she gave my brother a gift (a pair of gemstones) to pass along to his ex-girlfriend, which she and my daddy brought back from their recent trip to Aruba. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal, but let me mention a few facts.
1. my brother and his ex broke up A YEAR AGO, a fact that he did mention when my stepmum asked about his ex when my brother was talking about other girls.
2. they didn't bring back a gift for me, or my brother, from this trip.
My dad was surprised that she was giving them to my brother, as he thought they would be keeping them for Miranda for when she is older.
I shouldn't be so surprised. Her own children don't even talk to her, and now she is alienating me. They took off for their vacation in February without letting me know... and she was usually picking Miranda up from school on Tuesdays to get her to her early ballet class, and I was left scrambling to make arrangements, meaning taking personal time to leave work early. Over the past few months, she hasn't hidden the fact that she dislikes me so I should just get over it.
Being entertained by these characters. :)

Oh! I went shopping during lunch and freaked out at the salesgirl at La Senza. I had 6 items to try on and she would only let me take 5 into the fitting room. I said it was rediculous of them to not allow me one more item if they were wanting me to spend money in their store!! It was stupid on my part for being honest and I should have just told her I had 5 items and she would have been none the wiser. I probably would have bought this one but I didn't just out of principle.
There, a post with a picture, from work!!

I let Miranda listen to the song because she has no idea what it means, however, I will not let her watch the music video. Strata will be in Edmonton with Finger Eleven in May, but I think the show is sold out. :( Perhaps the Easter Bunny will deliver tickets in my basket!! I doubt it, since I have been informed that he only give candies for Easter.
Their new album The End Of The World comes out June 12th!

- Antisaint - LOVE IT
- Brainiac - LOVE IT
- Saferwaters - MEH, it's ok, but I like their heavier songs better
- Well Enough Alone - MEH, I don't know why they didn't release a better song as their first single, especially when I think every song is radio friendly. It's ok when listening to it with the rest of the album (it seems to fit in) but on it's own I don't enjoy it so much. It's that Pete sounds to whiny when he sings the "Why we leave / Well enough alone / Never thought about the shame" bits. Take that part out and I would really like the song!
- Straight Jacket Fashion - LOVE IT
- The Fad - LOVE IT (it is rumoured that this will be the second single released)
- Humanoid - LOVE IT
- Paint The Seconds - LOVE IT
- Midnight To Midnight - LOVE IT
- I Get It - LOVE IT
- Saturdays - LIKE IT
