OMG I'm sooo tired. I just got home from work today (The Rose Bouquet) and I'm really tired. Plus I feel like crap today but that'a really a whole other story. Well the last two days have been very "flowerfull" to say the least and I still have one more day to go. Tomorrow should be fun though >> I get to set up the churches and halls for the weddings (it's always nice to see how the finished product looks). Anyway since my eyes are closing I'm gonna sotp this log here.

Hey Christina, hey Lisa!! Yay, finally I have some writing on my message board!!

Today I went to the EX (for those of you who don't know >> the canadian national exhibition). It was my first time this year >> I'll be going one more time with my parents (it's a tradition). Today I went with my friend Christina (hi Christina >> you'd better be reading this!!). Well, it was a very nice day, a bit on the hot side though, but we spend at lot of time inside the cool air conditioned buildings so it was all right. What was so nice about today though, were two random acks of kindness. Well... they wern't great deeds but they did make me smile. Random act #1 >> I was looking at books in the better living building and I just happened to sneeze. I complete stranger came up to me and said bless you. I was so suprised. It was the first time a stranger that to me. Random act #2 (this one was the best!) >> I was at one of those claw games (the ones where you have to pick up stuffed animals) trying to win a cookie monster toy (I reeeeaaally wanted it). I guy came up to me and said that to get the toy I would have to go for one that was facing down. Then he pointed to one that would be the best to go for. So I tried for that toy and won on my first attempt! I was so happy! I thanked him of course. Overall it was a very lovely day.

Yesterday I brought my cat to the vet for her annual checkup. Everything went well, that is to say she's fine, however, her teeth have built up some plaque and are gonna have to be cleaned. So next week she has to go in to the vet twice. Once on tuesday for a blood test and then again on thursday for the cleaning. Apparently she has to be put to sleep for this procedure. My mom is a little worried because my grandmother had a cat that went in for a teeth cleaning and never woke up from the anesthetic! (they later discovered that the cat had diabetes >> a blood test was never taken before hand). Hopefully things will turn out fine for my cat. Oh ya, while we were at the vet for the checkup one of the dogs, that had just woken up from an operation, was making the most horrible noises. It sounded like it was in a lot of pain. Jeeze what the heck do they do to these poor animals?!? I felt like I was in one of those horror movies where they're doing weird operations on people without any drugs.

*sigh* I'm sooo bored! It's Sunday afteroon and I have absolutely nothing to do (well I'm sure I could read a text book or something, but who would wanna do that?) and I'm all alone >> except of course for my cat. Right now I'm pretty much staring at the wall. No new anime came out today (that I watch anyway), so I've got nothing to download and I really don't feel like watching T.V. Maybe I should add stuff to this blog (something to vote on maybe?). What I really need is a section for people to type their favorite quick meal recipes. Since I live on rez during the year I have to cook my own meals but I never know what to make (some new ideas would be good). OK, now I'm getting bored writing this blog >> I guess that's my cue to stop.

OMG!!! I just got a letter today saying that I am invited to join the golden key society!! I'm sooo happy. I really wanted to get into it >> some of my roomates got into it last year >> that's really the only reason I know what it is. I was so suprised. I really thought it was based on your cumulative GPA, but seeing as how I've been invited to join it must be based on annual GPA (my cumulative GPA is not exactly the greatest). It's kinda weird though. Just this moring I was thinking about the golden key society and how acceptance must be based on cumulative GPA. Then I got the letter >> the exact same thing (well sorta) happened when I was accepted into forensics. I was thinking how great my day would be if I got in, then I got an email saying I was accepted >> weird huh??


I finally finished watching this anime and all I have to say is HUH??? What the hell happened?? I seriously have no clue what happened at the end of this series. I even checked out a bunch of web sites about the end of evangelion and no one seems to have a clue as to what happened. Oh, everyone has an opinion/guess, but no one can really say for sure. I guess it's just one of those mysteries that will never be solved...

YESSSSSSSS!!! SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I finally managed to make my scroll bar purple!! I sooo happy (it's taken me like 4 days to figure out what was wrong >> I know I'm dumb).

It's been getting really hot lately. I just can't believe it >> right at the end of the summer! It'll probably be a heat wave when I move back into rez (no air conditioning >> life has a way of never working out as planned). The EX finally opened up today (it was supposed to open this weekend but power had to be conserved). I'm not sure when I'm gonna go yet. I'll most likely go twice though. I've never missed a year in my whole life and I never intend to (even if I have to be dragged there on life support!). Well... I finally found EVA episodes (I've been slowing collecting them over the past few months but now I've found a whole bunch >> DVD rips too!). I've watched up to ep. 23 and I have to say, I'm getting a bit confused >> is Rei human?? is she supposed to be some kind of copy of Shinji's mom?? Eh well I guess I'll have to keep watching >> I've only got 3 more episodes to go, plus the movies.

Oh today was such a nice day. I had to work in the morning but I spent the whole afternoon by the pool. I think I may have even got a little tan (barely visable though). Anyway, I finally found a person who had all the Evangelion episodes on IRC but now they're offline and I only managed to download one episode off of them. Apparently the episodes were done by #animunkie but I have no idea what network they're on!! So if anyone happens to know this, PLEASE let me know. Or if anyone knows where to get high quality EVA episodes (subbed) that would be great too.


I tried their new cookies today and they were really yummy. So soft!! I only tried the peanut butter chocolate chunk but I bought a bunch more so I'll probably eat them after dinner. Tim Horton's is really cornering the coffee/donut shop market >> I think they put something in the coffee!!

Today was a pretty hot day (about 27 C >> it was kinda windy though so it felt cooler). Anyway, we had a family barbeque and went swimming. It was nice. My baby cousin came over too, she got to swim for the first time. Oh she was sooo cute! She just loved the pool. Her parents got her a little inflatable boat (made for babies) to sit in. It had a little hood to keep out the sun and holes to put your legs through. She knew right away that she had to kick to move the boat. I tried to get a bit of a tan but I'm still really ghostly, oh well.


I just watched this last night. I thought it was pretty funny >> some parts more so then others (dog shit >> people in the theather were laughing so much that you couldn't hear what was being said >> some people just couldn't stop laughing at all >> even when things were only remotely funny). Overall I'd say it's worth watching but definitely not as good as American Pie.


D.N.Angel 20: This episode seemed really short (maybe I'm just going crazy). The animation was very "cute" looking for some reason; I liked it though.

Da Capo 5: I never really understood the storyline of this anime. It's getting a bit more interesting now. A new character was introduced in this episode >> she has cat ears!

Ikkitousen 3: Hmm well... There's a lot of fighting in this anime. I'm not sure how much I like it yet but I guess I'll at least watch a few more episodes.

Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch 11: This anime it just so cute. It's kinda a cross between the little mermaid and sailor moon (with the exception that the mermaids use music as a weapon). I feel silly, but I just really love it.

Well it looks like the power is back to stay (hopefully), so I'm back on my computer *yaay*. So officially this will be my first real post. I guess I should talk about myself a bit, though I sure that if anyone is actually reading this they either A >> know me already or B >> don't care who I am, but here goes... My name is *marla* (most likely already gathered this from the, "posted by marla..."), I'm a girl (yes I prefer to think of myself as a girl rather then, "young lady" or "women" >> it just sounds old >> I am, sadly *cry*, 21), I love toys!! (80s toys, so if u got any I want them!). I've also recently become hopelessly addicted to anime << so I'll be talking about this frequently. I'm a 3rd year university student at U of T >> UTM kicks ass!! >> studying forensics, though I have no idea what I'm gonna do with my life. That about sums me up (well, not really but it's a start). Anyway, I've been working on this damn blog for 2 days now (off and on) and I can't seem to get my scroll bar to change colour. I know I have the code right because when I press "preview" in blogger it comes up purple but when I go to my actual blogger address the scroll bar is grey. It's driving me crazy! So to all you computer geniuses out there, if any of u have a second to look at my code and tell me what I'm doing wrong I would be eternally grateful. On a happier note, this morning, at around 8:30am, my friend called to invite me out for breakfast >> normally I wouldn't be up at 8:30 but I just couldn't sleep knowing my scrollbar was grey! >> it was such a nice surprise! We went to golden griddle and had the buffet (yay for buffets!!), thanx Janine!!

Well... the power went out at about 4:10pm yesterday and came back on around 4:00am this morning >> though I really can't be sure of the time since I was half asleep. Anyway, there are supposed to be rotating blackouts for the rest of the weekend so we're supposed to be conserving power >> which obviously means no computer *tear* >> thus I must go. Hopefully we'll have full power restored soon.

yaaaay!! Well it's taken me all day but I've finally set up my blog. Athough I still haven't posted any links >> or for that matter anything people would care about, but I'm workin on it. Hopefully I'll have it all set up by tonight! *crosses fingers*

ah ok... all seems to be well now >> now if I can just figure out how to make this blog pretty...

k now I'm quite confused >> my last post doesn't seem to have worked so lets try again

hmm... not really sure how this is gonna work so just testing it out for now :)
