make me gag. That aside, I am taking one for the team and carved a
pumpkin for the office.
My pumpkin "Two Face".
I was sent on a mission to track down a Webkinz Bat for Miranda and in my journey I found a pink dragon. PINK! I had to have it. Now Pink Dragon is sitting on my desk at work, guarding over my pink folders, pink paper clip, pink tacks in my bulletin board, and all my other pink office things.
My new sweater. These images don’t do it justice. I have to try taking some with my camera. It has logo buttons, stars on the pocket and roses on the side and sleeve. It’s so cozy! I fell in love with it the first moment I saw it. I wish I could wear it every day.
Here's the story how I ended up with this on my leg.
Niki had this great idea for us to go out dancing!!
Near the end of the night, Niki and I take a break from dancing and we found Raylene and Jen sitting with some random guy. There was a blonde hovering around and Jen stepped in to rescue him. We talked about my shoes because it was apparently impressive that I could walk in them, let alone dance all night long in them. I jumped up and down a few times to show off.
So this guy says to me, "I don't know what to say to you, you are so beautiful."
I laughed and said thanks. As you can see, I didn't look all that beautiful, hot from dancing so much and my hair was pulled back in a messy ponytail in an attempt to cool me off.
Later on, he was talking to me about this song that was playing, at which point I said to him, "Ok, so you seem to be someone popular, with all these people hanging around. Who are you?" Jen, the hockey super fan, had already told me he was one of the Oilers. She probably said his name, too, but I wasn't paying attention.
He told me his name and said he was a soccer playing from Europe. I asked from where in Europe. He said from the Czech Republic. I asked him why he called it soccer, because I though everyone in Europe call it football. He shrugged and did a little imitation of a soccer player with a ball.
Another girl came over and she had her cell phone taking pictures of him and had a paper for him to sign with a Sharpie. And then he wrote on my leg.
The talented and lovely Artist in Residence Stephanie Jonsson has her latest exhibit opening today until November 15th at the Harcourt House Arts Centre
3rd Floor Gallery
10215 - 112 Street
Edmonton, AB, Canada
Says Steph of her work,
My work is a paradox; a reaction to the absence of nature in our increasingly urban culture. The industrial, civilized world has become so disconnected from nature that it appears strange to me, like an absurd alien universe.
I am really looking forward to seeing this exhibit! and not only because I helped out with some of it – I helped stuff these things (seen here, arranged on my floor for the photo) Stop in to see the exhibit so you can see how the artist incorporated them into her work. I guarantee it will be more spectacular than my little pile on the floor.
Please support the Arts, and our local artists!!

When it comes to my skin and hair, I don't trust just any products, and usually go to salons and costmetic counters and stay away from the drugstore for these purchases. I happened across these pretty bottles a while ago and I thought, oh, how pretty they are! The other day, I stopped to smell them and yummmm, they smelled nice, so I caved and bought them. I have been pleasantly surprised, because they seem to be pretty nice on my hair, too. They don't leave it feeling sliky and smooth but not goopy nor grimy.
A short while ago, I would have be going insane if I was in this
situation! I am surprised by how calm I am without it. Mainly I'm
doing fine is because I have my handy dandy iPhone to keep me feeling
like I am still part of the collective.
So without my PC, I have filled my extra time with the following.
- Playing a lot of guitar hero
- Watching a few movies
- Playing games with Miranda
- Napping after work
- Blogging via email
- Talking on the phone
- Forgetting to check my email (seriously, I seem to be checking it
once in the morning then at dinner home I'm surprised I haven't
thought about it all day and I check it again)
- Trying to Facebook (I don't care too much for the FB iPhone app so I
switch between that, mobile Facebook and the regular FB site in
Safari, then eventually give up)
- Going to bed a little earlier
- Reading (a cheesy chick-lit book that is almost too painful to read.
Second worst book purchase over the past 10 years (the first worst
book is sitll 'The Alchemist'; I didn't make it past page 9) 'Princess
Izzy and the E Street Shuffle'. It was less than five bucks so don't
be judging me!
I haven't checked my rss feeds in ages...
My point is I'm not freaking out about my computer being gone for so
long, which is probably a very good thing. If I was freaking out about
it, I would end up dead, either by (a) anxiety from being computer-
less, or (b) being shot dead by Scott for whining about taking so
long. The computer is being a bitch and if I was too then he'd totally
kill me! Haha
