Windows Vista demo goes awry

Microsoft gets owned!


I'm back from vacation and I will be posting news from my trip soon but I just wanted to tell whomever is posting retarded comments on my blog to give it up. I moderate my comments so send me all the nasty comments you want they won't get posted so you're wasting your time.

Get a life guys. Seriously.

I'm just a few minutes away from my vacation starting. So have yourselves a great week !!

Talk to you after the 29th!

What goes around comes around!

I was bored at work today and so I was surfing around for old school rave stuff online and came across an article I wrote back in the winter of '96. I have no idea where the original post I made went but someone copy & pasted the entire thing into their site LOL

Keep in mind the site is suuuper cheesy and probably from late 1990's but it's totally a list I wrote one day bored at school!

What's next? Eat your own poop???

Melrose Place

My parents took Jimmy and I out for some super yummy mandarin food! I have leftovers for today's lunch woohoo!

After coming home, I was about to go shower and get ready to just relax at home with Jimmy watching LAST COMIC STANDING when there was a knock at my door. It was Mike, one of my neighbours. He was having a wine & cheese at his place with a bunch of ppl from the building. So Jimmy and I headed over there.

I ended up meeting 3 cool chicks who all live on the 7th floor and one guy who lives on the 4th floor. We were there till around 12:30am! I'm a bit tired today! But it was well worth it. We all traded numbers and now I have ppl to go visit when I'm bored at home! Mike and I had discussed organising wine & cheeses a few times a month. I'll talk to him about organizing one in my pad after my return from Halifax.

I can't believe I leave for Halifax on Friday night! wow. I can't find my freakin suitcase so I'm going to have to go to my parents to borrow one of theirs. I'll be bringing my laptop though I don't know if i'll get decent connection we'll see!

Tonight, my friend Kate is coming over for dinner and then we'll watch SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and tomorrow Jimmy comes over, he's helping me pack and we'll just chill out.

Alcohol is evil!

Because Jimmy barely ever drinks and I am with him most of my time, I don't really drink as much anymore. Which is good. But, I had bought tickets to go see KC & The Sunshine Band at bluesfest on Sunday night and I was going with a bunch of girlfriends.

DISASTER! I don't know about them, but I got pretty licked! It crept up soo easily on me!! I didn't see it coming! After the concert, we all went back to my pad for an after party.

I plan on never getting drunk in my apartment ever again. One of my friends, dropped one of my photo frames and it broke all over the place, then she spilled her wine all over my computer table (thank god my comp wasn't hit) and sprayed part of my wall with wine. I couldn't get the freakin stains off so now I'm goingto have to paint over it *sigh* My floor was a complete mess. I spent all of Monday soothing the worst hangover known to man and cleaning up the mess from the night before. For my housewarming, I'm not having more than 2 drinks. I need to stay on top of things to make sure nothing gets wrecked. One of my blinds won't open either I don't know wtf is wrong with it. grrr.

On a happier note, they came yesterday morning to fix my wall :D yay! It's not fully ready yet though, they painted what they could and now part of it is still wet with cement so they are supposed to come back sometime today to finish up the job. It better be done by the time I get home from work!

I'm going out for dinner with my parents and Jim tonight. OMG! we leave for Halifax on Friday night!!!!!

Yes. I am still a lush. I sometimes go through dry spells but today is definitely not one of them!

I'm getting ready to head to the Bluesfest and catch KC & The Sunshine Band in concert!!!!! omg I can't wait! I was hoping 2 of my girlfriends were coming over to drink with me but they both cancelled. So in the meantime, I'm drinking for 3 and waiting for the girl who lives across the hall to get home from Toronto (she called she's almost home) so we can meet up and continue drinking the rest of this alcohol together before walking to the concert together (we're about not even 10 mins away walking) We already told ppl we're hosting an after party at both of our places combined LOL we've also kind of warned the ppl on our floor. Luckily most of them are pretty cool and want to join in the festivities yeehaaaaw!

I'm getting drunk and I think tonight I'll have lots of interesting photos!

Looking forward keep you guys updated!

I'll make sure to take photos of KC and his band

I get home from work yesterday and as I'm about to put some more photo frames up on my wall, I notice something strange in one of the top wall corners. I go to inspect and my freakin' ceiling was leaking! I touched the wall and it was fresh and didn't smell strange. So I quickly called the after hours emergency number and the super was quickly dispatched to my place.

We couldn't figure out what it was, especially since we went to the apartment above mine and noone has moved in there yet. Nothing seemed to be leaking from there. He said he'd have one of the contractors come to take a look in the morning.

I decided to stay home the next morning to make sure things got done. At 9AM, the super with the contractor (Dan - awesome awesome guy!) came by. He knew right away what it was. The a/c unit for the apartment above me was leaking water. Turns out it got clogged and it overflowed. He said the same thing happened to someone on the 10th floor so he'd get the a/c guy to come fix it. I gave him my work number to call me and let me know what the deal was.

I just talked to Dan. Everything is under control. They've soaked up all the excess water from the a/c unit above me and are in the process of drying the wall but it can take up to 2 days to completely dry it. They can't repaint or do anything until the entire concrete wall is dry. So they are coming first thing on Monday morning to repaint and refix.

The heat is on

Last night it was chilly so I turned my a/c off and slept wonderfully. Today, I decide to go for a walk with a co worker after left and we almost melt! WTF!!

Thank god I turned my a/c back on before heading to work! It's soooo muggy outside I feel for those with no a/c! urgghh!

So I was right about the contest on the Comedy Network! They called me back today and they are mailing out my 12-in-1 remote (lol) end of next week. Can't wait though I know I won't be using it at my place I'll probably give it to Jimmy to use in his basement he's got already about 6 remotes it's brutal! Supposedly this remote thingy from Sony is worth about 150 buckaroos sweeeeeeet!

I ordered some more enlargements through loblaws so I'm going to pick them up after work today.

UPDATED photos of my place

I took the morning off work cos I had my couch finally delivered. It looks so nice! Though now the apartment looks a bit smaller and my coffee table won't fit anymore and i'll have to move my tv or switch tv stands for one of those corner ones.. hrmm.. we'll see I need to maximize my space.

Word of Mouth

So I recently joined an online community called

I originally heard about this site one day while browsing for reviews on a book I wanted to purchase. A girl mentioned the site and I figured I'd check out what it was all about. It's a pretty simple concept. You join for free and basically, you choose from different marketing campaigns available. These campaigns are advertising products. They mail you samples, you test them out and drop name the whole time to whomever will listen and then you come back to the site and you fill out a report online describing in detail who you "bzzed" and how it all went down.

I'll use me as an example. When I joined, there were only a couple of open campaigns. One of them was the Hellmann's Real Mayo campaign. So I joined and 3 weeks later, I received 2 full size bottles of 2 diff types of Mayo from them. I use the products as I wish, while name dropping when I'm around other ppl and then report back to the site. It's awesome and suuper easy! I've already discussed the product at work while using it and at a potluck dinner party b/c I used the product in my meal.

Give it a shot! Tell me what you think!

Monday Blues

I'm so not a fan of Monday mornings!

I just checked my bank account. I'm sooo broke! I haven't been this low on money since I was 21 when I moved into my first apartment. I should have listened to my mom. I spent way too much money getting things for my apartment too quickly!. That's it. I ain't getting anything else for it until at least next month. *cries* oh well.

So I bought a couch this past weekend and I got a line of credit with one of my banks. I'm going to set it up tonight for online banking cos I'm going to pay off my entire AMEX bill. That will be one less thing to worry about. Next month I think I'll pay off my mastercard and then i'll only have to make one payment with waaay less interest to my line of credit HALLELLUIA (however you spell that!)

I also found out that I may have possibly one another contest this one on the Comedy Network site. I think it's just 2 tickets to see the movie CLICK! though I'm not sure, I enter so many contest I just can't keep track of them all lol. I am going to call the lady back cos I'm supposed to answer a bunch of questions. I hope it's not math and if it is, I'm going to keep my calculator handy!

So since the high school reunion email was sent out, I think I've received that same email at least twice! One time from this girl I haven't talked to in yrs for some reason she still had me on her list. So I replied to her and we got to catching up on email it was nice.

Then today, I go to check my voice messages on my cellphone and someone who I used to be best friends with in high school and later drifted apart, and then eventually stopped talking to b/c of something she did to me (long story) last October, left me a message on my machine apologizing and wanting to rekindle, even though 9 months had passed by already. It was a complete shock and I was almost intears b/c what she did totally hurt my feelings and was pissed to realize that she obviously didn't care b/c she never called or emailed to apologize. Anyhoo, the message basically was all apologetic and begging me to call her so she can continue to kiss my feet.

I'm going to give her a second chance. Or at least, let her say what she has to say. But I'm not holding back this time, I'm going to tell her everything that she has done to me in the past that has hurt me and how badly. It will be a pretty teary conversation from both sides I'm sure so I'm getting mentally prepared. I know things between us will never be the same but I'm willing to give it another shot and start from scratch as if we were "new" friends. The only reason I'm giving her this chance is b/c of how much we have gone through. We've known each other closely since we were 13 yrs old and we are now both 27. Longest I've known someone close to me.

She's calling back this weekend so we'll see how it goes!

High School Reunion


I received an email last night from a high school friend letting me know that our high school reunion is in Oct. I can't wait! I'm dying to go see what everyone that I haven't talked to since high school is up to these days. Compare life stories, brag and what not lol. I hope not everyone is married with kids I'll feel like the odd one out!

This weekend went by too damn quick. Probably had to do with the fact that I got stuck working on Canada Day :( Thankfully I got overtime pay for it and I'm going to bank it as time off so that I have more vacation. Especially since my granny from Peru is visiting next month and one of my close guy friends is moving back from the Netherlands! We'll want to spend lots of time together I'm sure. He is dying to see my new pad!

Speaking of which, it's looking soo much nicer! Jimmy gave me a bunch of photo frames and I printed a bunch of photos enlarged at loblaws 2 days ago and picked them up last night. The apartment is really starting to feel like a home! I can't wait to get my couch and get all my decorations up in the next week or so. Then I'll take some much needed updated photos of the place for you guys.

Canada Day


Today is probably going to be one of my longest days! Like I said, I'm on call this weekend. I wasn't expecting to get called in until sometime Sat (it was a guarantee I'd have to work on sat and sun for a bit) so I'm getting ready to go out on Friday night and my freakin phone rings! it's work!!! They are just giving me a heads up on what is going on. They tell me that the Minister needs these things published by 8am Sat *cries* which means, I'd have to go in to work to do the work (finalize the press release and link to it and send out a mailing list to subscribers) so my night was ruined. I still went out but all I could think about was that I should leave and get to bed early so I could rise and head to work at 730am. I left my friends at midnight and came home, checked my work email and nothing new had come in. I went to bed, set my alarm for 7am and here I am today. I'm exhausted, I didn't sleep well and I want to go back to bed.

I just checked my work email and after I replied to a client last night at midnight to let me know tomorrow morning when we'd be ready to release all the pages to the public, he replies half an hour later (I had logged off by then) and says "well it looks like everything is going to be postponed, will advise once I receive more info" WTF!! I JUST SET MY ALARM, WOKE UP AND NOW HE'S SAYING TO NOT GO IN FOR 8AM? fuck this is so annoying! If it's postponed, i hope it's postponed till at least tomorrow. I just don't want my c-day ruined by going back and forth in to work. Regardless, I already made some money cos I got a callback while on call.
