Christmas is creeping up on us at lightening speed! I have brought myself a worldwide voltage travel hair blow drier as a present, at Argos (this funny store, you look through a catalog to buy what you want and then you get it in 5 minutes! all the stuff is just in the back. so everything is cheeper because the store doesn't have to display anything).......... And I bought this gray woll dress shirt thingy at Portobello Market yesterday in Notting Hill. LOL ah yes the framiliar English names, :) hugh grant anyone. The market specializes in antiques and jewlery. They had like old cricket and footballs and things, golf clubs, tennis racquets... I bought an old key. The guy said it was from around the 1840's..but whos knows if he knows but I love it, and I have always wanted one of those fancy keys. It can be my lucky key.
Stranger Than Fiction wasn't as good as I thought it would be, but it was good. I didn't try the popcorn. I had Domino's Pizza yesterday, it was not very good :) just like at home. I eat way too many cookies and I have to get myself under control!!! I need mom to tell me to be good!!! LOL
ps, those of you that do not have directwest address listings which i can sleuth out online, email me your addresses! or you will never get a postcard :)!!!! Yes this is a threat
talk to you soon

I got my first temping job this Friday. It ends today I think (they are very unorganized) and I was working at the ROC recruitment office (www.roc.co.uk) helping do short interviews for Selfridges (www.selfridges.com) Christmas help and data entry of the the people's detail on Olioffice (it kind looks like prohunt!!) .... That was friday and saturday. Today I am alone in the office, answering phones, while everyone else is over at Selfridges organizing people. It is absolutely nuts how many temps the store needed. something like 250. and as usual everything was left until last minute! :) I would feel bad for not doing anything right now, except that I haven't anymore CVs to entry and they never told me anything else to do. lol so here I am :) Maning an 80 person office by myself. So i probably interviewed over 30 people in 2 days. I was a little nervous at first, but I tried to jump right into it. So go me!!! anyways. At least I have made a bit of money :)

Things have been a little lonely here in this big city, and it is really hard to sign up for stuff and do things without a home address or a phone number so yes I am now the proud owner of a cell phone. A black motorola thingy
I found a place to live today, its perfect and I love it, great nieghbourhodd with 3 other females. The price is exorbitant but its basically the best I can do, and its a really good area for the price, so I was pumped.
I saw some ~real~ goth people today, like full length Drusilla dresses and the guys was in a floor length black and silver coat with a white ruffled shirt, it was awesome. lol anyways, also one of the Tub trains I was in today was like Jerry's BO car in that seinfeld episode it was nasty!!!! lol I know this is not really important to you guys, but know I am doing well and things are ok.... I went to a Career fair on the weekend it was good, up next the job hunt...... talk to you all soon#

My computer blows and I am unable to put up pictures right now, but I won't leave you alone in these wide open spaces, so I will write on!
Home alone on this Wednesday night. Not sure about what to do; no car, no homework, nobody... I have to think, "you will go away Kim and there will be alot more of this, a lot more." Read a book, maybe.. I don't know... My visa was processed today so now all thats left is buying the plane ticket and going, far far away, one minute I am excited, one minute I am so nervous... I never used to miss people as much as I do now.... gulp
I don't really have anything to say today except my own boring thoughts..... So i guess thats it.
GAH lol i need pictures to keep it interesting!! O'well
Goodnight ladies and gentlemen,
I went to the Black Eyed Peas on Monday, it was great fun
Stones on Friday and Sunday SOOOOOOOOo excited
Also Charlize Thieron is in Regina right at this minute looking at locations for a movie she is filming and producing here in November, crazy hey.... Star-struck Regina

I am going to see the Rolling Stones. Legends - - - It's basically like getting to see Bach 3o years after he died. LOL If that makes any sense................. I would pay the $300 if I had too, happily it is only $117, and twice :)
And so, this is occuring at our very own Taylor Field October 6th and 8th.....
Number two; my cousin from Winnipeg came to live in the city for school this year, and I wanted to spend some time with him. Well I need to make a better effort of this one - - it was his 21st birthday yesterday and I forgot to call him !!! Oops.......... Anyways
Number three; basically I have been dragging my ass and just sent my visa application in this week.......... So yah what can you do. I bought a Subway line map for London ;)
Number four; I am working full time as a HR assistant at Employment Network, I thought I would give the job a chance, to see if I truely enjoy this type of work, plus I am learning a ton, and it is just good work experience... So its ok, but I am not sure I am an admin/office/HR type person. My ass gets sore sitting all day.... Its stressful HR is, not for me so much but for the reruiters and such. Very stressful
Number five; I only have one class left to become a lifeguard and I wanted to take the course in September. Well I signed up, its paid for, anddd it was supposed to be this weekend and next. BUT they had to POSTPONE it on account of there being no instructor. GRRRRRRR So that not cool at all. I am jinxed I swear....
Number six; well I think I am out of reasons, my gramma is stressed about me going alone. And I am not THAT worried but people worrying about you starts to get into your head sooner or later.
Number seven; I kinda want to be here when Jen Burton gets back, even if its only to see her once. I really miss you Jen and I want to show you that you have friends back home that will be there for you no matter how long you leave for. Because that is what I hope for in my case. We always hope that when we come back from 'where-ever' that our friends will still be here for us. I know I will always try to be that friend.....
So the plan is the beginning of November, I just am tired of talking about my trip with people, its kinda like when you go to a family reunion and dozens of relatives you don't know at all ask you about school.."Hows school, what are you taking?". You just don't want to talk about it anymore........ I am sure I am also mad at myself for not already being there, but in my heart I know I will get there, and I may be dragging my feet a little in aprehension, bit I know I will get there. So that is my rant, any questions anyone :) ?

www.theballingjacks.com Tyler is the one I know lol kinda
anyways on the way home there was this GREAT song on community radio, and it ended with "You don't love me yet, You don't love me yet, You don't love me yet" and that is all I could remember. So I tried to find it, and all I could come up with it "You don't love me yet" by Bongwater... lol And upon listening, that is NOT the right song. Sad Sad Sad
I worked 13 hours today between two jobs :)
fun times indeed
hugs to all

a momentary lapse of judgement !!
OK, so Jen has come back from Oklahoma for a few short days and we are here at this moment to visit her, at kevins? house... lol anyways Crystal drove me, as everyone knows I usually drive, soooooo I got very easily talked into drinking, yah yah I know, but I have never been drunk yet so I thought hey this be the night! First Nicole maybe be this peach vodka ginerale business and it was very good.......drank it was while watching the Bombers get killed by the Stampeders....
So I played a drinking game with everyone, drink number 2 = vodka and strawberry banana juice.... couldn't taste the grossness so I got crystal and corrie to make it stronger for me......... now it was EWWW
Drink number three, same stuff........... Head starting to feel swayish, giggled uncontrolabley once lol covered mouth with hand........
So drinking game over.......... I know I am in the drunk area, but its only been
3 drinks right!? SO I have a shot of vodka just to make sure it happens for me!
I talked much, learned all about Nicoles boyfriend and sara's upcoming marriage.....
Crystal and I went home at around 1am and THANK GAWD
It was more like EIGHT drinks, because they were BEER CUPs lol so too much wayYYYY too much
cause the moment i walked in my door I was not doing well..... I went to go downstairs to write a drunken email lol cause well thats just what drunk people do, and I only made it to step two! before laying on the stairs for the next hour...................until I could crawl to my bed
Yes the hang over lasted all the next day through................... I do not regret the things I have done LOL I will just never do them again!!!!

lol and considering this may have been my last day working here, it was a good time to take some pictures!!!
Alright then, lets get on with it :)
Me, Ruby and Trish in this one, trying out the sepia style ;)
I called Trisha Beebee "Trish" for years, until I found out she hated the name trish lol well this is the "real" Trish" and she is actually my step-aunt, ah yes :) the bakery is a family affair.
I look like a large-headed galoot in this hat lol but o'well... White hats in a bakery, man what were they thinking!! dirtyyy
THis would be Lisa cutting up giant hunks of roast beef, ok no this isn't the bakery, its the deli!! which I help in a nights while those lovely deli-girls go on their brakes.... Good times, I love the slicers, they are exactly like the one Kramer had in that Seinfeld episode, that Elaine borrowed or something lol oh Seinfeld, but a size bigger I think...
One this picture makes my work place look like some sort of gettho concentation camp thingy... This is where donuts are made people!!! beware of evil donuts....
Giant boobs of dough lol enough said
Ok so this is where I would slice bread. Looking at these pictures, I can see that someone who suffered from claustrophobia would not beable to work here... well YAY I am not claustrophoic!!
Anyways I have worked at the Coop Bakery for over 5 years. Since the summer between Grade 11 and 12, its not the greatest job, but life is what you make of it right, and I had some great co-workers and have had some fun times and good memories, and that is all anyone can ask for....

Much fun was had.
We went for a walk on one of the trails, I got to hold Toni's leash (Evan and tracy's dog, he's a cutie)
We went too the Nipawin Museum, and saw many old things. This is a wooden Santa, he looked jolly.
Crystal was trying out her teaching skills in the one room style classroom. She was loving the math problems from the 1926 textbook.
Benson and Tanya were not enjoying the lesson quite as much :) !
We drove on a bridge across the river..
We drove up to Tobin Lake (20 minutes from Tanya's) and went swimming at the beach, the water was beautiful, clear, no rocks in the water, so sandy, I had so much fun swimming. Beautiful...
And on the way we stopped at Tanya's friend Elsa's farm and there were animals, piglets and cows and a huge garden and raspberry bushes Mmmmmm, I had "a few"
We had pizza, went to Vista point to see the dam, and went to the park to ride on the zip line wOooooo it was fun fun, and there is a cool bridge there too.... Nipawin is really in a beautiful spot. Up north I tells ya, its the trees, pretty pretty trees. We had DQ treatza-pizza and rented Sin City, Tanya only lasted half an hour, preceeded to call us "sick fucks" and go to bed LOL I thought it was alright myself....
On Monday we went golfing at the Nipawin golf course and I was actually hitting the ball! I was pumped... Anyways thanks tanya for having us, I had a lovely time. And thanks crystal for driving.... Hugs too all.

These candles burned quick! LOL no story there... Anyways, I ran into Janelle there, she works at the Campground office and her family has a cabin out there. We went over for coffee and cookies on the one raining day out of 4 that we had. Oh man it wasn't just rain it was like flash flood downpour!!!
Kell and I were trying to get creative for this picture, kinda a Kung-fu theme going on there!
The water was very clean really a beautiful place, trees and such, people can't say Saskatchewan is only bald-ass-prairie when we have places like this!
A sunset indeed
Chopping wood with little axe was not the easiest! But I have to say that there is something strangely therapudic about chopping wood. Its a stress reliever or something, you just don't want to stop!
We went horseback riding and it was great!! I got to "lope" which is a notch up from trotting,, kida like a slow gallop, much smoother and so fun. I imagined I was back in the 18 hundreds and galloping across the plains. Very freeing :)
Some hiking, and such, a bit mosquitoee tho!!!!
This picture hear makes me think of Africa or something! I don't know why... Anyways a good one of me and mom :)

It was great, everyone sits on tarps, its crazy, i have never seen so many tarps, and if you have lawn chairs they are only those kind that are really low to the ground, as to not impeed the ground sitters view,
Oh the hippies, so laid back, shoeless wonders....
Everyone is so nice, and curtious.
Everyone leaves their bags laying on their tarps and just walking around, no worries of thievery.. No litter, and real plates at all the food vendors! Boys in sorangs.... Free Free Free :)
Little kids dancing in bubbles, who knows where their parents are lol.... But nice kids, not screamy ones, the kind of kids that only hippies could raise.
This is the main stage at night, i moved the camera so it would look all CRAZY lol, there is some hippy bandana in the forground there :) ..............
