Which instrument requires less musical skill

The triangle or the castenettes.

All answers are greatly appreciated; there's a tuna sandwhich riding on this one.

I keep changing my mind on whether or not I think Sook-Yin Lee is cool.

Of course, she was everyone's favourite Muchmusic VJ for a spell, and she was possibly the best part of the great movie Shortbus.

Definitely not the opera, however, was just strange today. It was all about the human fascination with islands. Fuck that.

They did play Peter Bjorn and John though. For Sook-Yin's new 'danceateria' or something like that. Gay.

'And I can say that, because I am"

But yeah, Sook-Yin. i guess I'll just have to meet her before I judge.

But then, I don't do that with anyone else.

I have a communications theory assignment coming up, in which I have to take a piece of entertainment (film scene, Tv show, song or whatever) and apply it to one of the Theories we've discussed in class.

The catch is we can't pick anything 'weird' which pretty much eliminates all my entertainment choices.

Maybe I'll just do 'Newsradio", as I watched 6 episodes of it last night.

Also, Seinfeld is pretty much out cause that's all this guy talks about in class.

Any suggestions?

I'm home in February, and I'm hoping to get in in March to see Chris's new play (Congrats on finalizing the date by the way.) Fun to be had, hopefully.

My life is over.

For the past week my computerès been fucked, annoying since Ive only had it since January. In any case, today, I had to restore everything to factory settings.

Worked fine enough.

Today I re-downloaded iTunes and everything and plugged in my iPod to play it on my speakers.

The computer suddenly reboots and poof....everything on my iPod was erased. I had everything backed up, but it was on the computer which was restored. I was going to back everything up again but this happened.


This is so upsetting. I had over 4000 songs on that thing. Now I have to put it all on again. So stressful. I wont even find some of the things I had on there.

Someone pray for me so I dont lose my sanity

2:30 pm - Oh my life changes everyday in every possible way
I once had a dream where I was walking through a blindingly bright shopping mall, only being able to see the floor tiles before me and a skewed view of shops on either side. The rest was blazingly whilte like a bothed overwrought example of the beyond a la Highway to Heaven.

I had just had a sex change operation, and was bandaged around my pubic area and head but otherwise naked. Despite being highly medicated, I knew that something went wrong with the operation and was completely distressed. I had both a vagina and a penis.

I'm not sure which one I was supposed to have, (I know what most of you are thinking: if it was a sex change operation I should only have a vagina. Well, it was a dream, and maybe the old me was a woman. In another dream I was a rock, so starting out as a woman isn't too far-fetched.), but I knew that I had both.

I continued to stumble through the mall, trying to find someone to help, but despite all the shops being open and the flourescent lights glaring, no one was a round to help me to a hospital bed or single-gendered state.

I've since wondered if the dream me was distressed about having the vagina or having the penis. What was I striving to be...what didn't I like about myself.

I was certain on one thing though, I had to quit working in the mall.

5:40 pm - Gosh Oh Gee, How happy I'd be, If I could only whistle
So I missed my flight on Friday morning. Again.

I woke up at 7:15, realizing my flight had been in the air for about 10 minutes.

Immediately, I pulled the alarm clock out of the wall and drenched it in the bathroom sink.

Either it wasn't set right, or didn't go off, or it was too quiet to wake either of us up enough to prevent us from turning it off in our sleep...but that clock was at least indirectly responsible for me missing two flights.

"Don't" said Steve "you'll electrocute yourself".

Poor dear was too tired to realize I wasn't going to plug it back in.

So after driving to the Airport and rescheduling the flight, we made our way to Belbin's to buy some food for breakfast.

While there and looking through the dairy aisle, we heard someone say 'Beep Beep', obviously someone making notice of our being in the way.

We looked up to see an elderly woman with a full shopping cart looking to pass.

I smiled and was in the process of moving out of the way when in a slower, more pronounced manner, the woman said:

'Beep! Beep!'

No, 'excuse me please', no joke about her original noise and gesture, and no attempt at making small talk or smiling, just another signal for us to get our gay asses out of the way.

I mean, maybe she had to make an emergency quiche for her afternoon bridge club meeting. I guess I should be more understanding.

Good grief.

Later that day, after an afternoon flight and an evening exam, I went to a coffee shop and got a sandwhich and a(nother) tea. After doing so, I made my way to the bus stop.

When the bus came, I proceeded to climb on when the bus driver said, 'I'm sorry, we can't accept that type of cup.' and he didn't say it nicely either, he made it sound like I was an ignorant bastard for ever assuming I could get on the bus with a cup that was only covered with a brown platic lid as opposed to a snap-on style like that of water bottles.

'Oh' I said, wanting to point out all the times I've gotten on a bus with a driver who had that type of cup, and even times where a driver stopped to get a coffee in that exact type of cup.

I also wanted to throw the tea down the aisle and let him deal with it. I'm a much nastier and reactive person after the fact. If I were quicker I would probably have been arrested by now.

But I got off, thinking that the arsing around I had to get that tea meant more than the time I would lose waiting for the next bus.

As I said 'I'm sorry' and got off, he gave me that sideways head nod that says: 'See you later you stupid ignorant cunt'

Geez, people are too uptight. I mean, maybe I'd be surly if I had to drive people around all day to the same places while people sat in the old lady spaces wth no regard for the senior citizens in the town (granted, they'd probably say 'Beep Beep' all on their own). But seriously, talk about a wierd power trip.

In any case, as you can see, the spirit of Christmas is upon us.

Some quick hellos:

Mike: sorry I didn't call. I know I already apologized, but there it is again.

Del: I will call you soon.

Susie: I really want to see you! The 16th baby.

Mark: sorry I didn't make it to the oddly enough show. I really had too much study.

Jon: Call me back!

Everyone else, I hope to talk to you, see you soon.

7:14 pm - Either you're insanely jealous or you couldn't give two shits
Hi everybody.

I got a Wii


How exciting. oooooooh, Mike Greening, now we can do Zelda proper and we will have that video game night we were waiting for.

Wow, I feel like I'm 9 again. It's soooooooooooooo cool.

Love it. So much. I know I'm not supposed to love a material thing that much but wow, it's so great.
More soon.

5:39 pm - To everyone.......
Mike Greening - I miss all our movie nights/discussions and back step shenanigans. I will call you very soon so we can bitch and reminisce. And of course, geek out.

Laura - I hope you feel better babe. I miss you terribly and hope Alberta has found you well (as it seems to)

Jon - I don't know if you still post on this, but I miss your wonderful blunt sarcasm. Steve told me of your employment decisions and I say good for you. I'll talk to you soon.

Mark - O Mark. I hope everything is well as per our last discussion. I'm sure you said something in your posts about it, but I can never be sure if they're good or bad things. Well, I guess I can, but I can't always be sure as to who they're about. In any case, never change, and say hi to Thea and give her a big ol' hug for me.

Darryl - Pick up your keys! And I miss you. Still waiting for that call.

Sarah - Ma chere Susie. COmment-est-ce-que Montreal? Hopefully you'll have many grand stories and laughs ready for me over Christmas. I've ran into several people in halifax who praise you every time I say I used to live with you.

Gillian - My roommate and confidante. I know I don't really need to write this to you, but someone like you could never be left out.

Glenn - Stuffy ol' Ottawa must be benefiting from your constant effervescence. Missing you very much, of course. A Christmas meal and prior call is in order. Give my love to Niall.

Kim - My HMV pal. I feel lucky to know someone who is genuine to everyone despite the stresses of school and work. You have so many responsibilities in both but have seemingly never taken them out on others. Looking forward to seeing you in December....we all gotta get together. S'Gotta happen. (P.S. could you apologize to Shawn for me in that I haven't gotten to him, and that I'll be calling him soon.)

Andrew - I'm still looking out for that Trivial Pursuit tourney. You know I'm always up for it. Hope all is treating you well, you certainly deserve it.

Everyone else - I wish you all the best. Take care, and hope to see you all soon.

1:56 pm - No L, No L, Jesus and Santa's names have no L.

There, I said it. No one else will have to take the brunt of being the first one to bring up this inevitable occurrence. It's coming and it's time to start thinking about getting ready.

Also....I'm a little excited.

Excited mainly, of course, because it means I get to go home. I know I was home in October, but I really didn't get to see everyone I wanted/needed to.

And, for me, Christmas is hella fun.

It snowed in Halifax yesterday, and it sounds like there was some back home as well. Snow means....

Christmas is coming!

No, I'm not gonna suck the fun out of Christmas for everyone, as I've done for Halloween, Valentines Day and possibly New Year's. You'll all just have to find another savior.

I'll be just fine dreaming of the Vince Guaraldi Trio and skipping midnight mass because I'm...you know.

And even if Christmas is too commercial, They can't take away the wonderful feeling I get when meeting with all my family and friends OR while eating my festive special from Swiss Chalet.

What about all those gimp gifts you get and give at office and school Santa swaps. Sure, I'd love another box of Slowpokes and $5 in lottery tickets.

'No... No, I LOVED my homemade tea cozy....I really really really really did.'

Besides, think of the imaginative gifts that could be given.

Like giving your cousin with the stutter a book of limericks, or your bulimic co-worker a case of Pepto Bismal and saying ' this should work for that stomach problem you've been having'

Or! Or, there's always the tone deaf uncle. Buy some karaoke Christmas CD's and there will be hours of fun after you feed him enough Irish Coffees after Dinner.

I dunno.

Merry Christmas.

Today I was chastised in class for saying that I won't be giving out treats to the kiddies tonight.

"It's a sin," I was told.

I think it's a sin that I should have to spend 10% of the money I have left in order to give candy to kids who probably get more from the tooth fairy than I get from Student Loans.

"But they'll be disappointed."

I'm sorry children, It's not that I don't like you, I just don't wanna be that guy who you throw eggs at for not giving you the good candy. I'll probably be one of the only people on the street without the bars or the swedish berries or whatever other goop that qualifies for hallowe'en paydirt these days.

So instead, I'll get tomatoes on my door for not giving anything.

But seriously, I understand that October 31st is an important time of year for children, but I'm really disenchanted with the entire thing. I just don't have the energy to run up and down my stairs just so I can meet another seven year old girl named Brianna who's dressed up as Barbie.

Or Cinderella....or whatever other costume seven year old girls named Brianna wear these days.

As well, I really really really don't want to have to put up with the pack of fourteen year old guys who knock on your door wearing a baseball cap and call themselves Jonathon Papelbon of the Boston Red Sox. You know those guys: they don't say anything at all (including 'trick-or-treat' or 'thank you' or 'hi' or 'go suck a cunt'), they smell like cigarettes, they wear shoddy costumes (see above) and they look like they'll turn you into something that looks more like a costume than theirs if you don't unload all of your candy into their pillowcases.

If I wanted to put up with that I'd wait around Scotibank until it was held up. At least then the money I'd have to give them would be less than the cost of the candy.

In any case, maybe on the way home I'll crack and buy a few mars bars on the way home. That way, the word will spread that I gave the full-size bars instead of the little ones, but I just ran out quicker than I'd hoped.

Trick-Or-Treat! That's right kids, I tricked you this time.

I really hate the politics of Break-ups. Don't worry, I'm not breaking up with anyone, namely my boyfriend.

I neglected to invite a really good friend of mine to a party that I had this past weekend for the simple reason that I invited his ex-girlfriend first, and normally I would tell both parties to suck it up and deal, but I know the girl is really shaken up about it, so I immediately felt bad for any future pain it would cause.

In any case, she didn't show up, and thanks to Craig Dobbin's death and forced plans from others, I didn't get to talk to him, and he was one of three people (besides my bf) that I was really looking forward to seeing.

I feel like such a dick. I really need to call him.

otherwise Thanksgiving weekend home was really good....it feels like I wasn't even there though, now that I'm back. And when I was there it felt like I was never in Halifax. So weird.

hopefully I'll be home in November.

So I have 5 minutes to update everyone on my life:

To those I didn't get to see before I left: I'm really sorry for not seeing any of you as planned. If it makes you all feel better, no one was reached. I was late getting back from St.Lawrence and still had to finish cleaning my old apartment before I could leave.

I plan on calling when I get a phone, which should be on Wednesday. I miss all of you terribly and wish I had an oppourtunity to say goodbye until October. (I will be back the second weekend of) I should have a good 5 days home so I'll try my best to see everyone.

Otherwise Halifax is OK

I'll write a longer post when I get a proper internet connection.

12:57 am - Sorry
I'm trying really hard not to feel bad about being happy.

As well, I'm trying even harder to avoid getting angry at those who don't want me to be.

Everything is otherwise fine.

5:15 pm - Cause you didn't treat me like you should, sneakin around this neighbourhood
I apllied for two things today, both of which mark my impending doom. Or rather, my impending move to Halifax.


Oh Chantal Kreviazuk! The love songs you must sing to the one you love.

Raiiine! Rait for me!


I feel really gay this week. All that ejaculate is good for the face.


Jeremy: Are all artists deaf, cause I know my friend Mark always asks me to repeat myself.

Gale: Actually I am deaf in my left ear.

Jeremy: What are you some sort of tree-hugger.

Gale: Actually I'm part of an environmental group that plants trees throughout B.C every summer.

Never has a gay British Columbian artist felt so welcome in Newfoundland.

Last night was eerie. As Bobby said: 'All your exes don't live in Texas'

Oh Bobby. How I thoroughly enjoy your company.

I always listen to such shitty music when I'm drinking. Last night I sang along To Are you Jimmy Ray by Jimmy Ray. Holy shit. I even knew most (all of) the words.

I forgot plans that I had with someone tonight and I feel totally shitty about it. I hope he understands.

I hope the bleach fumes didn't get to me too much.
