Happy Birthday Jane!

I went to Jane's birthday party tonight at Myth. Good food, didn't know anyone but Jane. Left having met some really great, interesting people. Kinda reminded me of travelling. Actually, Jane's boyfriend Chris had travelled in Australia and we'd talked about the comraderie that you had there that can't be found, or even explained, here.

You sit on the subway or streetcar, or shop at the local store and avoid talking to, or even looking at, those around you. It's a conspiracy of silence and anonymity.

Not so with travelling -- especially if you go on your own.

And so, by the end, we were chatting like old friends.
What I would do to go back to that life...

Instead, I will remain as I promised myself I would. Tough it out, see how it goes. Then make some sort of decision before I turn 31. Maybe I'll do it all over again.

In the meantime, it's not so rough really. Not when I have choir practice with Jess and walk the dog with Tree and inspirational seminars with Sarah and ski with Mom, Alex to give me massages and dinners with Jane.

Speaking of which, I didn't even mention that we went out last week to Baton Rouge and I ate the most amazing greasy rib dinner and Jane literally fought me over the cheque, throwing my credit card across the restaurant. Shocking, really. Then she brought me to Sephora and bought me lots of pampering luxurious goodness. Honestly, I want to EAT the apple cider body wash and shampoo. I salivate everytime I use it.

I went looking for skis tonight and didn't find anything good at the Sport Swap. But I got to see Tree.

The search for some good 155s continues...

In more exciting news, my mom had an interior decorator come in and assess her living room. She won the assessment as a prize. So the guy has made all these great suggestions and now we get redo the whole room! Very exciting!

I managed to finally cook. Apple crisp, baby. Wish I could say it was as good as my mom's apple pie. Alas, she is a master.

And now I'm looking up skis online while working on my friend's website.

Anyone wanna sell me some good skis (~155cm) and bindings for about $200? Thanks.

Just home from Alleycatz where I went to a Swing dancing lesson. It was GREAT fun! (For only $5!)

However, I'm sad about how much I've lost from when I used to dance in Melbourne. Well, I suppose it HAS been a year...

Anyway, I left early so that I could get home and eat and catch up on some emails, finally update my site and start looking at another friend's site.

The weekend was been a blur!

Friday: went out dancing at the Courthouse

Saturday: hung out a bit with Alex before taking the Go bus to Richmond Hill to buy myself some ski boots and get picked up by my mom.

Sunday: skiing at Snow Valley (packed!) and then out for dinner and driven home in time for bed.

Monday wasn't any better. Work and then choir until late.

Today's been the first day I've actually spent any time at home since last Wednesday.

I like being busy, but sometimes it gets a bit crazy!

I've also started physiotherapy for my wrists. I finally decided that I should get someone to work on them: they haven't improved since I fractured them last autumn.

And yet I still manage to get in 9 hours at work today!?
