I was doing so well with my New Year's Resolution to blog everyday. Then one night, you get too tired to blog and just want to go to bed, and all of a sudden you're out of the habit. I'll have to crack down again!

Last week, my Wii broke :( It won't read any discs. Alex says they're something wrong with the laser that reads the discs, and Jack says I'd have to send it away to get that fixed. I can't finish Kirby! :( But luckily, yesterday Romer let us borrow his Wii because he never uses it. So, I'll have to start all over, but I can catch up to where I was and finish it! It's a fun game anyway, so I don't mind.

It has not stopped snowing since Monday, and it's been -30 degrees Celsius every day. There must be four feet of snow at least, and the weather channel says we'll be getting another 20cm. I love snow, but I wish it would warm up so I can finally go skiing this year, which I haven't done yet! :(

OOOH and last but definitely not least, I went and saw Black Swan on Friday ... it was fantastically weird, and smart, and nuts, exactly what I expected of that director (though the only other film I've seen by him was the Fountain). I loved it though. Some bits were a bit awkward to be seeing with both your boyfriend and mom (as her birthday present Alex and I took her to see it) at the same time, but it added sort of to the general weirdness of everything.

I had a relatively unproductive morning. I don't remember what I was even doing all morning. I just know that I didn't get anything done. In fact, I don't think I did anything until after 2:00. Because betweent 12:00 and 2:00, Danelle and I were playing Just Dance 2 on her Wii which she had brought to school so we could get some excersizing done over lunch, haha. It worked, too, we managed to get everyone in the school playing at least four songs each. It was friggin hilarious for the most part. Then, after we were all done and sweaty and tired, I got six heads done. I now have 14 out of 142 heads done. I'm on a freakin roll man. One of those heads was colouring Darren's hair red. On his dark hair it didn't show up well, and I warned him about that too ... but oh well, he hated it at first but after I had blow-dryed it he liked it ... so I think it's okay.

After school I went to Rebecca's old house to pick up some of the stuff she had left when she moved away, because I'm going to be going out of town for the weekend and I'll be stopping by to see her of course. I knocked on her door, and you will never guess who answered it. Remember the panty pervert I talked about in some of the older posts? Yeah. Him. Not even kidding. I was looking for Amy, Rebecca's old roommate, and apparently this panty pervert guy (who seemed to me to be very friendly and not very creepy ... I think a lot of the stuff the people at work told me wasn't very true) is now Amy's new roommate. It's a small world ... (but really, it's just a small town).

So I didn't really feel like going into the house when Amy wasn't home, so I went on my way over to Alex's house, where we watched [Rec], which is the Spanish original version of Quarantine (which was such a boring movie). And the whole thing was word for word with the American one, I even think all the names were exactly the same. The only thing that was different was the ending of it, which just about damn terrified me. I couldn't even look. It was just ... scary ... BLEH

So I needed something to lighten the mood, because I had just had a pretty big adrenaline rush (which was absolutely delightful). Alex and I went out to find Just Dance 2, because I had such a blast playing it today and I wanted to play it some more, hehe. We searched Best Buy, Walmart, and Future Shop and had zero luck. Well, it could have been at Future Shop, but those lame-os were closed by the time we got there. In the end, Alex ended up going out and renting it, which works for me! We played it for pretty much the past three-ish hours. My dad got involved, and that was good for a couple songs. I don't really know which is more entertaining, playing it yourself, or watching other people try to play it.

Anyway, I am tired and my back is positively killing me, and I am thankful for massages which are happening tomorrow.

Today, I worked out that I needed to do 142 heads in 32 days. Which means, at least 4 heads a day. I did six today, so I'm on a roll :)

Nothing interesting happened at school ... after school, I came home and ate food, then Alex and I chilled for a bit then went to BTF's with a bunch of friends. AKA Maigyn, Kayte, Shawna, Sarah, and Emilee. We also ran into Allison and Torrance, Romer and Shelby there. Seemed like there just so happened to be a party at BTF's tonight. And I guess there sort of was, what with the hockey game tonight. We weren't there for the hockey game, and after it was finished and people left we had a nice big table all to ourselves.

Then, since most people have places to be in the morning, we went home. And here I am. The end. Yay for short entries...

My room seems like it is so empty now that it's clean. Guess this resolution will take some getting used to ...

Today at school we finally started to learn how to actually CUT hair. We started with two blunt cuts, which were so easy, and I thought it was weird because you really do think that cutting would be a little more complicated than that. After I cut off a half-inch as practice, then went back over it and cut another inch off, we had to do what is called a 180 degree cut, in order to create mullet-like layers. That one is a little more complicated, and I worked on it for about an hour and it's still not done; I have to finish it tomorrow.

After school I went over to Alex's house and built more treehouses, then we were going to try and rent Case 39, because a couple of the girls were talking about it at school and saying it was pretty good and that it was out on DVD today. Apparently our regular-ish rental place didn't get any new releases ... so we found the Human Centipede instead. I now feel like I need to take a nice, long bath, then sleep for a few hours, then take three showers again after I wake up. It was really really stupid, but it didn't stop it from being really really gross. I really should remember how much I am disgusted by gory/torture type of horror movies such as Saw and what not. No more letting my curiosity get the better of me. I will not watch anymore gross horror movies. But, I think I will continue to watch demon/paranormal types of horror movies ... those terrify me lately but I love them anyway.

Now I am going to bed, and hopefully I'll have a happy dream and forget all about the Human Centipede.

Today was the first day back at school after the extremely short holidays. We had a new girl joining us today. Her name was Brooke, and she seems soooo sweet. I waxed her eyebrows and maybe made a new friend? I hope ...

Anyway, this is frustrating: Halfway through the day, Teena realized that it was a stat holiday, and that we were the only college in the province open for classes ... she let us go home at 3:00, but that's only three hours of extra holiday when we could have had ten ... well, shucks. :P

So I walked over to Alex's house and he let me give that Swedish game with the name I couldn't recall, which I learned was Minecraft. Alex had built a series of underground mines, and I am working on a series of treehouses in order to stay away from the enemies. I don't mean to brag but ... mine seems to be working a tad better. HA! That was a total lie. It took me forever to even really get started on the first treehouse, which still isn't even complete even though I was playing for almost two hours. Maybe I will get another chance to play it and it will get better ... maybe ... I mean, the treehouses are fool-proof and creeper-proof, in theory ...

When I got home I ate supper and got to work on cleaning my room and cleaning out my drawers, which I can't even close and my dresser is threatening to topple over!! I managed to get rid of a lot of clothes by putting them in my closet (the ones which I didn't really wear but had other value to me, such as autographed band tee's which I bought at concerts; summer clothes; and clothes that really should have been hanged up rather than folded and squashed into my drawers), and now they close! I even had room to neatly organize my collection of stockings and tights and pantyhose, so perhaps now it will be easier to find the pair I'm looking for each morning ... I also finally got all my make-up compacted into a smaller area. Normally I keep lots of my make-up in my drawers, and then the make-up that I use everyday or use often is packed away in a box which took up a pretty good portion of my desk ... but I didn't really need the whole box just for that amount of make-up. I managed to put it all into a small make-up kit by Betsey Johnson which I got from Alex's family. Now, without the big box taking up all my desk space, I have more room for my random/tacky/stupid little trinkets! :)

(definitely still have some cleaning to do, like wiping off my desk xD)

Today was yet another lazy day for me. My family forgot to wake me up and I ended up sleeping through church, heh ... so I watched Corner Gas all day. Corner Gas is probably the only good thing about Saskatchewan ... which seems pretty interesting if you watch Corner Gas. Don't be fooled though ... there's not much to see there. Unless you like farmlife. Maybe it's just not my thing ...

I did take a break from Corner Gas at one point though, to eat lunch and wax my dad's back using the new GiGi wax pot that my parents got me for Christmas. It worked well ... and I knew that waxing Dad would be really funny, and I expected him to chicken out, but he didn't ... and it was way way way more hilarious than I even expected! Emilee took a video of it ... but I decided to keep that off the Internet, for my poor dad's sake. I can always just use it as black mail later. OHHH ... KELLY CLARKSON!!

After waxing him good and smooth, I went over to Alex's house to chill with him and Chris. Chris showed us some game ... I forget completely what it was called, but apparently it's from Sweden and basically all you do is try and build a shelter and scavenge all the supplies you can before it becomes nighttime and the terrible beasts come out ... I think that's the gist of it. The graphics are hilarious, all blocky, it looks like such an oooold game but is apparently very recent, and very terrifying when the zombies come out at night. I didn't find them all the scary at all ... but maybe it's one of those things where you need to actually be playing the game and getting into it. Eventually we switched to REAL zombies though, and completed a campaign on Left 4 Dead 2, followed by Rock Band 3, followed by a movie called Frailty that Alex and I started watching after Chris left. Unfortunatley, school is starting for me again tomorrow, and I have to go to bed early if I'm ever going to get up on time to actually make it to school for 8:00 ... so we're going to have to finish it tomorrow.

I finally remembered to change my calendar as well. I forgot to yesterday ... but when I got home I realized it hadn't been done so I put up my new one. Better late than never! ... but it's bad luck to change the page of your calendar before the start of the new month. It taunts Death terribly, because you're assuming you'll still be alive in the new month ... so, it's good-bye to the Disney villains ... and Hello Kitty!

I survived the year 2010

100th post!! And Happy New Year!!

Last night was a blast!! I worked all day yesterday, kind of a bummer because I of course, was late to the party because I had to go home and fix my hair/make-up/clothing/whatever. I was slightly disappointed because my hair is too short for my dread falls ... which would have been much fun for the evening. Ah well, no sense in being upset about that though! I managed to still look fairly cute, I think. So after work and fixing myself up I went out to Boston Pizza to eat supper with Alex, Torrance, Romer, Shelby, Kayla, Don, and Naomi. By the time we were ready to leave it was already getting a little crowded with New Year's partiers ... we definitely avoided the bars because of said crowds ... not to mention expensive cover charges! Luckily, we instead managed to find a liquor store that was still open and we picked up a couple bottles of goodies, then went to Romer's house to play Little Big Planet and Black Ops. Naomi and Kayla are first-person-shooter virgins, which was good for me, because although I am quite familiar with first-person-shooters, I'm not that good at them ... but I finally had my chance to OWN at Black Ops! Muahahaha. Then I played again against Torrance and failed miserably ... it was fun while it lasted.

The original plan was to go and watch the New Year's fireworks, which usually start at midnight exactly ... so we left to go to them at 11:30. Romer and I decided to roll down the snowy hill for some reason ... we were freezing after that, but I say it was worth it! So after a freezing walk around to the resevoir in the deserted park, breathing in sulfer-smelling smoke-ish stuff, we realized that our small town is waaaay to lame to actually have the fireworks at midnight exactly, and we discovered that they began at 10:00 instead! It was a very pleasant and fun walk anyway ... albeit, chilly ... but that's my own fault and I have no regrets :)

We picked up candy and Space Balls and indulged for the rest of the evening.

This morning I woke up at Alex's house around 10:10, and we remembered we were supposed to be meeting the crowd from last night for breakfast at 10:00 ... we woke up Torrance and he went, but my head was sore from being so tired and I decided to go back to bed, and since Alex is my ever-loyal boyfriend, he stayed home with me and fed me bagels with cream cheese for lunch. The rest of the day was spent being lazy ... I got around to playing the Sims 3 and Epic Mickey for a bit (Christmas presents from Alex and his mom, haha). And now I'm in bed, about to play more Sims ... it's an addictive and guilty pleasure of mine (but I know I'm not the only one out there!) ;)

I took this picture on my way to Boston Pizza ... I'm not sure I managed all that, maybe I used my skills as an alien from another planet ...
