I should start new feature called
"Tips from an Idiot"

My first tip might go something like this..

"When you think you are all alone at work you still probably shouldn't fart in the storage room. Chances are the cute guy is still at work too and will walk in as soon as you walk out"

I have no personal experience with this. Noooo..... I wouldn't so something like that. Noooooo.... Never......

Here is hoping BC Place and a quick/good ventilation system...

what does some sequins, silk and dog toys equal???

Me working VERY SLOWLY on my next wearable art....

From Wearable Art

wouldn't you all like to know.... ME TOO. There is alot to do and I have barely started....

Not very motivated today and it is my last day off until the olympics are over.... I've got two jobs on the go until then so any days off from one will mean I am hard at work on the other one. I'm already tired.
I was supposed to help a friend move, go to a wedding show, run some errands, etc but I have done NONE of these. I spent half the day in bed with a headache and I'm about ready to go back there.... So lazy... Back to work tomorrow morning... At least Sundays are usually quiet...

I think I found my bridesmaid fabric! Who knew! I didn't! I wasn't even trying! Just washing it now to see how it does - then I might have to go back to the fabric store to buy the bolt!

I don't even know who/how many bridesmaids I'm gonna have!


(It's a good deal that is why I can't pass it up!)

It POURING rain outside. POURING. And I'm getting my monthly friend.
I'm working the late shift today so I'm still at home in my pjs. I have NO interest in getting dressed or leaving the house. It is dreadful outside.
I have a little chihuahua snuggled up on my lap....


Was listening to CBC on my way home yesterday. The news in Haiti is horrifying - was trying not to cry on the bus. The dictator and I have donated a little and I'm going to donate any $$ I make from my etsy shop this month. But it won't seem like enough. To horrifying. I can't imagine.

Something else people can start making for my wedding - come on people you only have 1 1/2 years! Get busy!

trying to finish up my wearable art.
It is still dripping.... I need to drop it off within the next hour. Blow drying doesn't help... It is nice and soft for your skin though! Hee hee....


Not much else going on. Work work work... Not taking any graphic design classes this semester. It makes me sad but I just don't have the $$ or the time right now.... It'll have to wait until Sept.

Wedding plans are coming along!

wedding show #1 check
dress fabric purchased check
location picked check (now we just need $$ for the deposit - maybe tax time)
travel agents found check

Next task will be save the dates!

bus story day 2

Same bus driver.... I get on. Not my usual time since I went to the library after work. BIG MISTAKE. It isn't rush hour anymore. He can go as crazy fast as he wants. Which also means he can brake as hard and just as fast as he wants. I can barely stay in my seat for most of the ride.
It starts off okay but then the carsick starts. I can tell - I am either going to pass out or throw up. Not sure which. Don't know what to do. I desparately want to stay on. I am still a 45 minute drive from home and who knows how long it would take Luc to come get me - not to mention my cell phone is almost dead.
I close my eyes and take very DEEP BREATHS praying I will not throw up. Passing out would be better - he would stop driving and fuss over me. And look - there is an ambulance right in front of the bus... DEEP BREATHS.....

I open my eyes every what seems like hour to check how far we have gotten. I'm telling myself if I can make it to the other side of the barnett highway I can walk home if Luc isn't there or my phone is dead....

Then a FAT guy gets on the bus. There is TONNES of extra seats. But guess who he picks to sit with. ME. His elbow extends into my lap. OHHHH.... and he smells. OHHHH going to throw up again. I can't take deep breaths or I smell his stink. Ugh. and we aren't even at the barnett yet let alone on the other side.


Other problem is it is an express bus so even if I decided to get off sooner the bus doesn't stop until it even gets to the barnett. The day before a lady had tried to talk her way off sooner and he wouldn't let her off. I'm sure puke would convince him but I didn't really want to get to that. AND with his driving I didn't think I could walk to the front of the bus in my current condition - ASSUMING I could even get PAST the fat guy.

It was horrible.

Finally we were on the Barnett. I was waiting to get to the city streets again and not on the highway but I didn't quite make it. I staggered off on the side of the highway and just stood there crying for a bit. When I finally felt better I ran across 6 lanes of highway and started to walk home. My phone was still working and Luc soon found me.

OH it was yucky. I have today off. I don't have to take the bus. I am scared to take it now.. I wonder if people ever complain about that kind of thing and if anything actually happens when they do or do the drivers all sit around and laugh. I could almost get this guy on sexual harrassment and bad driving...

Anyways. I'm taking my truck today. And very happy about that.

I hurt myself.

No not cross country skiing.

No not with my wii.

Running for the stupid bus. My leg popped out of place - hip flexor I believe I've been told in the past when it has happened... It freaking hurts.... I hope it is just a minor strain thing and it will go away cause right now I can barely walk...

Anyways. Working. Not much else to report. Getting giddy with wedding plans. We have found the perfect spot - if we had the money it would be booked. Hopefully our taxes will take care of what is missing for the deposit...
I'm soooo excited.....

I'm trying to find research pictures of Illinois State police from 1983.

I found this instead....

Hmmm Maybe it is time for a career change.
