Whose Line is it Anyways - Tour

I went to the "Whose Line is it Anyways" Comedy Tour last night with Jimmy. It had 2 of the main guys from the show doing routines for 2.5 hours. Colin and I forget the other guy's name.. something Sherwood. HILARIOUS! They always call up ppl from the audience to participate and Jimmy & I got picked. We had to make the sound effects to them. They had a skit lined up and we each had to do the sounds for each person. The problem was that the speakers were facing the audience so we couldn't make out every single thing they were saying so we kept screwing up! At one point, my guy was trying to yell to this guy in a burning building I guess to tell him he was going to get help, but I didn't hear that so I thought he was just yelling out to a friend. So I kept saying "HEEEEEEEY" everytime he cupped his hands around his mouth as if he was screaming. Jimmy did really well, he made the audience crack up a lot. Which doesn't surprise me, he's a comic at heart.

I just got another email from a friend who saw me in on stage heheh cool!!

The countdown begins!

My bday is in 2 weeks so I'm going to begin the countdown now!!

I wasn't going to have a party at all this year but changed my mind because my building has a kick-ass party room so I'm going to take full advantage of it since I'm living there only until the spring. I'm going to host it about a week after my real bday since it always lands on thanksgiving. It's going to be a halloween theme and mandatory costume is in effect!! I'm going to send out the invitations via email later this week as soon as I talk to the property manager to confirm that all the appliances will be in place by then as she specified to me earlier in email.

Speaking of which, our gym is open! Well, it hasn't been officially announced but I've already used it twice last week. It looks like they are still missing a mirror and some paint on part of the walls but most of the equipment is in there already and I may as well use it before it becomes super busy in there! Jimmy is sleeping over tonight so we're going to spend a good hour in there tonight working out. I have to work out now almost every day to get into tip top shape in time for Peru. I've got exactly 4 months to get cracking!@ I've toned down on the wine/beer intake and only do it when I have ppl over for dinner or I go to out or something which isn't often these days.

Another thing I've been talking to my mom about is going to get laser eye surgery. It's something I've been considering since my mom had it done over a year ago. She is so happy and I'd love to have it done before I head to Peru so I have one less thing to worry about while there. I talked to my mom about it this past weekend and she said she'd help out with payments if need be. We're going to have a serious talk about it after my bday. I may ask her to help me out with payments if it's too costly and tell her to give me that money as a xmas present or something. So we'll see! Naturally, I'd aim to have it done in Nov so after my bday, I'm going to most likely book a free consultation to see how much my payments would be. I'm so excited!!

Today the kittens turn 3 months old!! I can't believe how quickly time has gone by! I gotta go get them their second set of shots this Saturday and I'm going to ask the vet to see when is the earliest time I can bring them in to get fixed/declawed.

I rented the first season of The O.C. this past weekend. Now I understand why ppl love that show so much! It's addictive and I'm going to go this weekend to get season 2 hahah.

We are not the same~

I just read this on my friend Sean's blog and thought I'd share with you guys as well.

... Some asshat MP is trying to turn Canada in to the US where copyright is concerned.

Go here and choose your province and then your MP. The letter against it is all written up to submit to your member of parliament. You just enter your name and address and then send it in to register your stance against americanizing Canadian copyright laws. The main push is to prevent legislation that would make it illegal to circumvent DRM on your legally owned media. This is a step back. It would open us up to being sued a la RIAA. TAKE A STAND!

He's completely right, I just signed and sent off a letter, now it's your turn to vote and stop the insanity!!

Retroactive pay!

YAY! I got my retroactive pay from the 2 past years this week! lalalalala!

It was a lot of cash and it makes me a very happy person. It couldn't have arrived at a better time. I had recently bought our tickets to Peru (Jimmy is going to pay me back for his flight soon) and I was worried I'd be in the hole, but alas, I received this huge amount of cash and it's actually just a bit over what our total tickets were combined YAY! So it's as if I got the tix for free.

My kittens are getting sog so quickly!! To think I got them the day they turned 8 weeks old and now they are going to be 3 months old on Monday! I've taken some more photos of them so you can see them growing.

I'm going to my friend's Pampered Chef event this weekend. She booked it through my event which means I'll get discounts at her event because of it! I can't wait the girl picked as a theme "Chocolate". Though I'm not a huge fan of chocolate, I think I'll still have fun especially cos she's making chocolate martinis which I've never had and look forward to trying. I'm also going to most likely order some stuff, partly because i get a discount and partly because I want her to get freebies, she bought stuff at my event so I'll buy some at hers naturally.

I think I'll book another pampered chef event sometime this winter and host it at Jimmy's so that I won't have to deny ppl from showing up. By then also there will be more themes for me to choose from. Can't wait!

My boss has been gone for 2 weeks. Normally, it's a time to rejoice but this week, has been hell on earth! It's been soo busy at work and I've been trying to balance both taking care of the IT job I normally do, plus dealing with communication department directly aaaaaaaaaah. IT and Comm just don't mix that's for sure!

Anyhoo, I'm hoping I don't have to work overtime tonight cos I made a gym date with a friend. I had to cancel on her twice last week cos I got stuck at work till 630pm which isn't THAT late but it's late enough that I can't make it to the gym :( I seriously cannot wait until the gym in my building is up and running! They said end of this month so one more week hopefully!

My friend Mel called me on Friday night, she's been living in England for the past few yrs and we've been in contact via email/msn the whole time. But seeing her in person since not seeing her ever since we were teenagers has been awesome! Cool thing is, she's staying at her mom's place who lives kind of close to Jimmy's house so super convenient! I'm going to call her tonight to see if she wants to come over tonight or tomorrow for a sleepover since I don't have to rise until later cos I'm getting things fixed in my pad and I need to be there to supervise :)

Another weekend is about to roll in, thank god!

I can't get over how quickly this past summer zipped by and how close the winter is . How depressing. Back to hybernation for me that's for sure!!

The kitties are getting so big! They will be 11 weeks old on Monday wow. They've become very people oriented. Very friendly. I seriously cannot wait until I can get their claws fixed. I'm still not sure if I'm getting them declawed or keeping them with the "soft paws" deal. I want to get them the soft paws for now but unfortunately, they don't offer soft paws for kittens under 4-5 months old DAMNIT!. So I'll just have to keep going to the pet store to have their nails clipped every 2 weeks. I'm also thinking of getting a much larger scratching post/play area for them. The one they have is too small for them. I should have invested in one with at least 2 levels that way they would have more areas to play on. I notice they enjoy being up high at my eyesight level.

I've had to start leaving my bedroom door closed because, even though I don't mind them playing in my bedroom (especially sitting by my floor-to-ceiling windows and ppl watching, they figured out a way to get inside my boxspring by ripping open a small hole. I don't want them in there for fear they will hurt themselves. Plus Simba got stuck in there and was meowing like crazy cos the stupid cat couldn't figure out how to get out hahah. Dumb cat! So I'm going to be bringing home some industrial tape to tape up all the loose ends on the boxspring. Jimmy and I are throwing out that boxspring when we move in together anyways cos it's old!

Last weekend I finally went out to a club with Jimmy and some friends. It had been MONTHS since I'd been out. I really enjoyed it. But Jimmy and I drank way too much and we suffered for it all of Saturday we were bed-ridden LOL

This weekend, I'm having a friend and his fiancée over for a couple of drinks (to Jimmy's since I"m staying there all weekend) and it's Jimmy's nephew's bday on Sat so we're going to his sister's place all day and at night we're heading to my work friend's bday thingy at her apartment. Sunday I'd like to get as much of my errands out of the way as possible.

Oh yea! We bought our Peru tickets! I can't wait! We leave Jan 10 - Jan 25 yay!!!

So look for updates on here :P

Friday of WTF?

Is that her family name or her profession??

Thursday, September 07, 2006


So this weekend we get to finally celebrate a bit of our long overdue anniversary. We're going to the Velvet Room on Saturday night for a murder mystery dinner theatre. Should be lots of fun! It will be free too cos of the contest I won earlie this summer for 2 dinners inclusive. We'll use up the hotel vouchers probably the weekend of my bday which is a long weekend. I took a cute photo of Jimmy napping with the kitties.

Simba has been using the litterbox more now thank god. I've been rewarding him with treats everytime he does. This weekend I'm going to go buy them a scratching post b/c they are starting to scratch my couch a lot more these days and I have to get them to stay away from that. They're also playing a lot more around my computer which I do not like, so I'll be also buying this spray stuff or sticky stuff that cats do not enjoy and putting it around areas I prefer them to not play around for safety reasons. I think I'll also buy some kitty shampoo and give them their first bath in a couple of weeks. I want my kitties to be used to water :)

Bad kitty!!

Simba has been a bad kitty lately. He pooped on Jimmy's roommate's off-white couch TWICE over the long weekend. We thought it was probably because the litterbox was too far and he couldn't figure out where it was so we brought it up to the main level.

Then last night, as I'm reading my book in bed and cuddling with Simba & Zazu, Simba decides to take a leak on my bed!!!!!!!! I was livid! My duvet and duvet covers reeked. So I had to get up and wash everything. I was trying to figure out why he'd do something like that, but I guess cos he's still a baby, accidents will happen. I'm going to keep them in an enclosed area (a make-shift playpen) until Simba is fully littertrained. He has to understand where the litterbox is and I need to know that there won't be anymore accidents. I hate having to do this to Zazu as well cos he is good with the litterbox, but I can't seperate them, they'd be miserable.

Everyone pray for me hehe

Back to routine

Boo, the long weekend is done how depressing. I had so much planned for it but we didn't end up doing much at all. I was supposed to be celebrating my anniversary with Jimmy at that hotel we won 2 nights stay back in the summer but we didn't end up going cos it turns out that all the fun facilities were closed in the hotel so no point :( So we're going to wait to celebrate. Oh well.

I took the kittens to the vet on sat. They are in perfect health and received their first set of shots. I also got Jimmy to finally set up my pantry shelves it looks awesome! I'll take a photo of them once we set up the hooks to hang stuff with. All that I'm really missing is 2 more rugs, hang the rest of my photos and set up my bookshelf on the wall. I'm going to start inviting ppl over for small housewarmings. First one is set for the 15th. I have to start calling ppl to confirm dates.

Can't wait!
