I slept in (later than usual) this morning. Was it because I went to bed at one o'clock? Uh...not necessarily. It was because of this.

In Saskatchewan, Canada, guess what it does? Yep. Snows. There's a huge snowstorm all weekend. It's awesome! There are times that I hate winter, and cold, but I love blizzards. They're just so cool. (Pardon the pun.) My window in my bedroom was completely packed with snow.

It was kind of dark.

A weekend activity of mine has included, thus far:

  1. Watching the "Canada for Haiti" telethon. My family is going to contribute some money. That's just awful, what has happened. However, I really liked the way they had people perform at the show: acoustic, pure. A guitar with a microphone, a piano. Plain voices. It was very effective.

  2. Working the food booth at Carson's hockey game. I like working the booth. I'm pretty much professional by now.

  3. Watching an old Disney movie for no reason at all. (Atlantis). It was grand.

  4. Playing too much of the Sims 3 and frustrated because it still is not working correctly.

  5. Making rainbow cookies and sledding with my friend Aaleah. We made rainbow cookies last weekend, too. We used different colors this time. At my house, they were blue, purple, and an odd shade that was either green or yellow. We also chilled the dough in a wrong size pan, so the cookies were all deformed. At Aaleah's, we were more professional. We made pink, green, and blue cookies, in the right size of pan. Except Aaleah had problems cutting them, and then I baked a batch for too long and they're too crunchy.

  6. Reading The Lovely Bones. Interesting but weird.

  7. Finding this picture!

Oh, yes. A double-decker homemade Oreo I made at Christmas.


Zen Mode

I did yoga tonight. I introduced my little sister to it. She was a natural.

I feel totally zen now. I also don't have anything to say in a blog post.

Except sorry I haven't been a faithful poster. I'm a busy person.

I deliver papers twice a week, teach skating AND figure skate Tuesday and Thursday, ballet on Wednesday, and tap on Thursday.

Sorry. No one cares about my schedule. I just want to say that

a) My novel is laying guiltily on my mind (it's been neglected) and
b) I'm nervous about a garage band performance tomorrow.

Garage band, you say? It's a modern school band my awesome band director Mr. M created. There's, like, vocalists (fancier than singers), guitar, keyboard (me), drums. We play CLASSIC ROCK: Hotel California is our personal hit. I love eighties music so much. It's my new thing. Top of my list:

Billy Joel
Corey Hart

Elton John (okay, so he's not eighties. He's been around forever. But he's a tank.)


Hating Computers and Hardware


But I didn't, because I love it deep down. I just forget sometimes.

You know what I don't love? The Sims 3. I know there are not many people who actually read this blog, but the ones that do are possibly too mature for video games. I'M IMMATURE. Okay? I really, really like the Sims. Sadly.

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 7, Simming has just not been happening. It, like, freezes, blacks out, and comes back. Or it freezes, and stays until Windows defense takes over and restarts.


I had an interesting game going, too. Ever since I installed World Adventures. Which, by the way, is supremely fun. You explore tombs and such. Make wine. Learn martial arts.

I'm going to stop ranting someday. PROMISE.

But if any of you are PC geniuses, let me know.
