Please don’t let this turn into something it’s not
I can only give you everything I’ve got
I can’t be as sorry as you think I should
But I still love you more than anyone else could

All that I keep thinking throughout this whole flight
Is it could take my whole damn life to make this right
This splintered mast I’m holding on won’t save me long
Because I know fine well that what I did was wrong

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

We have got through so much worse than this before
What’s so different this time that you can’t ignore
You say it is much more than just my last mistake
And we should spend some time apart for both our sakes

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

And I don’t know where to look
My words just break and melt
Please just save me from this darkness [x2]

And I don’t know where to look
My words just break and melt
Please just save me from this darkness

Yet another crazy windy day. I can’t believe how many trees are down after just a bit of wind. A tree fell on a car near my house. Saw trees along Kingsway down, the concrete slabs over their roots all tilted up and apparently Stanley park lost even more trees. Saw the roof of BC Place flapping in the wind and the Skytrain felt like it was going to be blown off the tracks at one point. Then there’s the snow, I got out of work and there was no snow downtown but there were snow ploughs driving around waiting for something to do. When I got closer to my house there was hardly any on the ground yet the street signs were covered. What happened to plain old rain? I almost want it back…the rain that falls straight and not at a 45 degree angle.

Crazy Airplane Landings

kind of makes you not want to fly ever again lots of risky landings..think this was the problem with our flight back from Prague, high crosswinds.

What a great game to be in the good seats, ended up in a shootout and we won!

Now I have a new canuck crush…Taylor Pyatt..mmm.

Pics are up on flickr and a video (not such a good one) is up on youtube

The Next Step

I don’t know what to do as far as finding a job.

Do I keep applying to jobs I don’t hear back from and don’t think I will get or do I go back to school yet again? For now I’m thinking I will look for an admin type job to do while I look for something else. Then I can go to VCC and do a lab assistant course then work at that for a while then apply to BCIT Clinical Genetics once I’m a bit older and more experienced. Then I would get to go to school for 10 more months and pay a lot more money, but in the end I’d be a Medical Laboratory Technologist which pays a fairly decent wage. Decisions decisions.

To think I thought the hard part (school) was over. An alternate plan would be to delay the growing up and getting a good job thing to do something fun where I can meet more people. Advice is welcome.

The Belfast Language

nice one

This is my first attempt. A different picture would probably work better but this is all I have right now.

Lyrics of the Day

Sailing through the tunnels
In the morning by yourself
There’s a very special feeling
True sensation, all is well
If you stand and reach your arms out wide
Close your eyes and try to fly
It’s an underground illusion
Tricking you from side to side

We knew all the answers and we
Shouted them like anthems
Anxious and suspicious that God
Knew how much we cheated

It can’t come quickly enough
And now you’ve spent your life
Waiting for this moment
And when you finally saw it come it
Passed you by and left you so defeated

Skyscrapers rise between us
Keeping me from finding you
If the concrete architecture
Disappeared there’d be so few
Of us left to navigate and defend
Ourselves from the tide
It’s an underground illusion
Tricking you from side to side

There’s no indication of what
We were meant to be
Sucking up to strangers throwing
Wishes to the sea

And it can’t come quickly enough
And now you’ve spent your life
Waiting for this moment
And when you finally saw it come it
Passed you by and left you so defeated

Scissor Sisters – It Can’t Come Quickly Enough

2006

What an eventful year. It all started out so well…puking in the bathroom at the Odyssey after too much beer, rum, a shot of aftershock and who knows what else. Almost puking in the taxi on the way home. Fun fun fun. New Years day 2006 seems like just yesterday actually.

Since then I have dumped a boyfriend…gained a boyfriend…my dog died…my niece was born…my good friend from high school got married…I graduated University…I was over in N.Ireland twice…Prague once…I ate beef sashimi…I think that just about sums it all up.

2007..bring it on!

Canadians in Hell.
Two guys from Prince George die and wake up in hell.

The next day the devil stops in to check on them and sees them dressed in parkas, mittens and toques warming themselves around the fire.

The devil asks them, “What are you doing? Isn’t it hot enough for you?”

The two guys reply, “Well, you know, we’re from Canada, the land of snow and ice and cold. We’re just happy for a chance to warm up a little bit, eh.”

The devil decides that these two aren’t miserable enough and turns up the heat.

The next morning he stops in again and there they are, still dressed in parkas, toques and mittens. The devil asks them again, “It’s awfully hot down here, can’t you guys feel it?”

Again the two guys reply, “Well, like we told ya yesterday, we’re from Canada, the land of snow and ice and cold. We’re just happy for a chance to warm up a little bit, eh.”

This gets the devil a little steamed up and he decides to fix these two guys. He cranks the heat up as high as it will go. The people are wailing and screaming everywhere.

He stops by the room with the two guys from Canada and finds them in light jackets and bucket hats, grilling sausage and drinking beer. The devil is astonished, “Everyone down here is in abject misery, and you two seem to be enjoying yourselves.”

The two Canadians reply, “Well, ya know, we don’t get too much warm weather up there in Prince George so we’ve just got to have a cook-out when the weather’s THIS nice.”

The devil is absolutely furious, he can hardly see straight. Finally he comes up with the answer. The two guys love the heat because they have been cold all their lives. The devil decides to turn all the heat off in hell.

The next morning, the temperature is below zero, icicles are hanging everywhere; people are shivering so bad that they are unable to do anything but wail, moan, and gnash their teeth.

The devil smiles and heads for the room with the two Canadians. He gets there and finds them back in their parkas, toques, and mittens. NOW they are jumping up and down, cheering, yelling and screaming like mad men!!!

The devil is dumbfounded, “I don’t understand, when I turn up the heat you’re happy. Now it’s freezing cold and you’re still happy. What is wrong with you two???”

The Prince Georgians look at the devil in surprise, “Well, don’t you know? If hell freezes over, it must mean the Canucks have won the Stanley Cup!!!”
