New Year, New starts!

Hope everyone had a wicked New Year’s Eve! With two more years left t’ill 2012, has everyone started planning for their apocalypse? Haha!

Yesterday, we went to see the Princess and The Frog! I’d been wanting to watch it for a while, and I must say, I was really pleased! I’m a big John Lasseter fan, the director who makes most of the new Disney movies, now. The animation was super fun, the story was adorable, and there were some things that I was really surprised to see in a Disney movie! I must’ve cried every fifteen minutes. Mostly because it’s my bad week and I was unnaturally sensitive. Crying over anything and everything in the movie all while keeping it hidden. I was a wreck, basically. Haha.

Also, my older sister and I gathered some friends and we went for a two-hour long karaoke session! The area was Korean, and we were worried that the songbook would be written in Korean too. Luckily, it wasn’t. There were English songs as well as many types of asian. The room was small, and could hold up to nine people, but when we’re all singing and acting crazy, it starts to get hot and we all start to wish we could karaoke outside in the -4 degree snowstorm. Or, ice-storm, rather. The lyrics were written in huge white letters in front of the screen, and the television, at the same time, was showing some korean music videos. They were all so dramatic! Intense and emotionally drive. It didn’t matter if the singer was butch, he could be crying through the entire thing (and one of them was like that… no joke!) A few of them stuck to my mind, and  I wish I could find their original videos on youtube to show you. Some of them were very good while others were … too much.

I remember one of them. A boy trying to catch the attention of a girl he likes. She loves penguins, takes pictures of them, sees them in zoos, and they’re all she ever thinks about. So to catch her attention, he tries to take one for her, and they fall in love. AWH.

Other music videos included the mob, best friends with guns… shooting heroin. Yeah. That was the “too much” part I was talking about! XD

After two hours of karaokeing, we went to Parliament Hill to watch the lights projected on the building. We took pictures, went to see the Prime Minister’s kitty house (there’s at least 20 in there), and we later decided to hit the bars so we could join everyone for the countdown! It was my first time being carded for a bar. Pretty exciting, huh? I couldn’t afford anything, though, so I didn’t take any orders. Oops.

There was a snowstorm (and it’s still snowing today), and still, girls were wearing their heels in there to get to their new year’s bashes. We saw so many attics filled with dancers. Limousines, drunk teenagers, rich tourists at our most expensive hotels, coming to Ottawa just for the welcoming of the new year!

All in all, I think it was a great way to finish the year! (:

Operation Fright Night part 3.

The night was fairly uneventful. People still believed my hair was a wig and just to make sure, they would yank down hard just enough to piss me off. I thought I’d caught a bunch of rats smoking weed inside the haunted house, but to my surprise, I was wrong and let them go in peace. I was also asked a lot of questions tonight. I tried to answer in character the best I could. Nothing horribly wrong happened, and I didn’t do anything stupid except for that one time when I was about to leave with the costume still on my back. Luckily, I went back inside the prop room without no one ever noticing.

Today, we went to the University of Ottawa for an open house they were having. There was a bazillion kids there, and absolutely no organization. It was hell. I got lost so many times, ended up sticking with my friends instead of risking going to the class I registered for. It was free, so not a big scar on my wallet. Or, rather, mom’s.

For lunch, they gave away 6$ off any campus restaurant coupons, earning myself a free Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks! Now, I’m not a fan of the restaurant. Or coffee for that matter. I hate coffee. But I’m one of those quirky cider fans. I like the natural-tasting sweetness and the scent, especially. It was delicious, and went fabulously with my Subway – for which I also got myself a savings card. At last! I always go to Subway. It’s delicious, non-greasy, and well priced! My order is always foot-long grilled chicken with lots of olives. Letus, of course, and tomatoes. I try to limit my consummation of meats to chicken. I’m, per say, a “getting there” vegetarian. Although I have a hard time refusing anything my wonderful mum cooks, when I’m out, it’s never something else than chicken if there’s meat.


It was about 1pm when I finally met up with my usual “gang”. It was such a relief to see them! I just had to tell them about my potential prom dress, which is adorable and supe pretty! My mom took all the measures to get it online, from a website called unique-vintage.com. Yes. It’s a vintage dress!! I think I’m going to get it for real because my mom loved it as much as I did and it was cheaper than she thought it would be. Which is weird on her part, since she never trusts the net when it comes to buying. She seemed to like this one though! So exciting!

After walking to the downtown part of the city, we stopped for the others for their lunch at McDonalds. I was craving fries, so I bought a large one. Turns out there was too much in there so I gave it to my friend, Anastasia. I wanted to give it to a hobo, but she was closest. When we came across a hobo asking for money for coffee, I snapped it right off her hands and offered them to him. He was so happy! It really warmed my heart. It’s a wonderful feeling, doing a good deed that way. Usually, they reject food, for drug money. It’s ridiculous. But this one looked really excited to start eating those fries!

I bussed to the bus station closest to my house (which is a 15 minute drive away) at the end of the day. Went home. Finished an overdue essay. Didn’t eat. And went to work.

And to top the cake, I got my paycheck! Yay! See what happens when you make someone you don’t know happy? You get a direct handshake from karma itself. Now, I’m not religious or anything, but karma is something I definitely believe in.
