Pre-New Year's Dance-athon.

So, last night we went to Bamboo (not our usual spot) and had a pretty magical night. I'm pretty sure that it was a great prequel to all of the amazing adventures we'll have tonight.

The most beautiful shoes in the world.

The most beautiful girl in the world.
Allison getting cheeky with the camera.

p.s....Props to Cosmos for tearing up the dancefloor with me....and many thanks to Sheena and Shafer for feeding me their beverages.

p.p.s...I know I say this a lot, but Allison really is the greatest best friend in the world.

Man, oh, man....

...Am I ever excited that synthesizers are making an amazing comeback, via groups like Freeze Pop and DJs like Mylo (speaking of Mylo, 'In My Arms' is a track with such perfect 80's sampling that it gives 'Call On Me' a swift kick in the groin).

You can spend a million years telling me that that synthpop is stooooopid, but try and stay still when it's playing....Not gonna happen.

Happy holidays, kids.

2006 is going to prove to be a pretty amazing year, I promise.

Ladies and Gentleman....

Please give some love to Mr. Leeroy Stagger (free downloads!). He used to cut my hair when I lived in Victoria.

p.s....If you live in Calgary, and you don't have any tentative plans for New Year's, you may want to check out Leeroy's show at Palomino. I don't really know what I'm doing to ring in the new year, but it'll probably involve a little bit of Leeroy.

One more holiday wish.

I want to run for the border...In gift-certificate form.

Taco Bell is like heaven in a crunchy, corn-based shell.

T-Minus 1 day until my weekend starts. I am counting the seconds.

I miss having winter break.

Why can't the adult-world have some sort of equivalent?
I want a week off. If you want to get me an awesome birthday present, get me a paid week off of work.

p.s. Dylan is the king of gifts.

I am anti-virus.

That is to say, I am against viruses in any shape or form.

Just realized that you guys probably can't see the millions of words that are highlighted in my blog, such as the word 'gift', and whatnot...Can you? It's probably only on my computer.

I swear, if Megatron and I were tight, stuff like this wouldn't happen.

New Stupid Virus.

You may notice that some words (for example, the words 'gift' and 'virus') are highlighted. It's because I have a new kick-ass virus that seems to have worked it's way into my computer. For now, my anti-virus and anti-spyware software don't seem to be doing as much as they should. Unlike my last virus, that put my computer entirely out of commission, this one leaves my computer usable, just very annoying.

This September, it's time for a brand-new computer, and I'll probably just stick it out until then without repairs, unless this virus goes the way of my last one....However, don't worry if I seem to disappear for a while or anything...I'm not dead, just getting my computer fixed.

Wrapping paper is stupid.

It is.
Here is a list of alternate things to put around gifts:

-Put a burger on a newspaper for a minute or so, then trace around the grease-stain, and draw a face on it. Tie with some glitter yarn.
-Write a list of words that almost rhyme (orange/sword, papes/tates...See? They don't even have to be real!), and tape it around gift with masking tape.
-Cut out pictures of everything you would like as a present, and make some sort of collage. Wrap around gifts, and send to your friends and relatives long before they've bought you anything. The power of suggestion is some pretty heavy stuff.
-Paint the outside of a ziplock baggie, and seal with some Doublemint and Big Red, for a "festive" look.
-Dip entire gift in glue, and then dip into a sparkle-tank (Yes, I know there's no such thing as a sparkle-tank, but a girl can dream...)
-Draw a picture of yourself drawing a picture of yourself drawing a picture of yourself drawing a picture of yourself drawing a picture of yourself naked. Tie with shoestring licorice.
-Write out the lyrics of Kris Kross' 'Jump', and paste together with dreams of faded glory.
-Silly String. Nuff said.

You're welcome.

The boss called...

....Think you guys know the rest of that sentence.

Danced a bit, drank a lot, and had a night of much-needed non-work-related fun.

P.S. When Dylan takes me out, you know it's got to be good.

I feel like I'm being racist, but... that I've had Greek yogurt, I can't go back to the plain old North American-style. Pretty amazing stuff.
6% milk fat....Hell yeah!!!

I'm kissing you guys through my screen right now....That's how much I miss you.

For all of my pals following the New Sincerity movement...The newest installment of Maximum Fun Mondays (thanks, Alex).

Those who know me well know how I feel about lists...Here are all of the best lists of the year on one page!!!

The best of Drew's Toothpaste For Dinner:

It's true.
Anything involving Kool Keith is worth it's salt.
This one's for Melony.
My motto for life.

Amy, of Teenage Unicorn fame, is hosting a free Go! Team download on her site. Here's a link. Please read the rest of the site, too, and send her e-mails and e-hugs thanking her for endless entertainment. Thanks.

By the way.... My very dear friend, Kate Wedemire, took off last week to do a photo project in Thailand, called People On Earth. I wish her the greatest travels in the world.

P.S. Nice things are happening all the time around me...But sometimes I forget to see them. I'm trying to open my eyes more.

Allison is tops on the list of the best friends of all time.

She brought me sushi, then gave me the best haircut that anyone has ever gotten (again).

It's been a good weekend so far....A very good weekend.
I am surrounded by some seriously amazing people in this city, and that's all I need to say.


P.S. Mr. Kevin Sweeting, who lives in the illustrious H-Town (a place so magical that I can't even speak of it), talked me into setting up an account @ . Won't you join us?

P.P.S. How is everyone out of H-Town so awesome? It must be in the water.

Growing up.

What did I have for dinner last night?
Beer and Lucky Charms.
...I couldn't be any cooler right now if I tried. Somewhere in the world right now, The Fonz himself is riding a motorcycle and applauding me.

As I approach my 24th birthday, I am realizing that I am turning out less and less like my late-teens idea of being an adult (peppered with professionalism and dinner parties), and more and more like my 8-year-old idea of being an adult (eating crap and staying up "as late as I want").
