Heh, go me  
All right, I'm back. Yay. Let's all listen to the resounding sounds of "Oh wow, I didn't even know you'd left! ^^;" which I shall take as a compliment to my awesome ninja skills as opposed to the fact that no one loves me.

So, I was down in Ottawa for the weekend where it was cold! I wasn't expecting so much damned cold, not if we were going to try and catch glimpses of half-dead tulips when not entrenched in the gigantic Palais du (de?) Promenade thingummy. The reason for the trip was a martial arts competition that I thankfully wasn't a part of because fuuuck there was a lot of pain being dealt there and I rather like myself too well to throw myself in the midst of that, thank you very much. So no, I decided against signing up myself, and focused on cheering my father on. He got a gold for the first event, Form, and didn't in the Push Hands, though I doubt none of you know what I'm talking about when I say that. Except the winning part. ;p

There was much driving, lots of rain, a lot of cold, and a lot of... um... clouds? I learned a new recipe for cookies, and I want to try it... it'll take a lot of effort, but I want to make them. :3 It'll be an experiment, anyhow, since as anyone close to me knows--my greatest accomplishment to date has been a pot of soup that I made myself. ^^; Just 'cause it's hard to ruin a soup where you just toss stuff in. Some picture-taking, not a lot.

And I'm on constrained bandwidth again so my internet is death. Yes, I managed to bring it up to 5500MB last week, yes yes I did. ;p It's not my fault that Loveless just had to be downloaded. I think it was worth it. Mmmm... And now that you all know that I'm still slightly dead to the world until my bandwidth comes back (won't be for a few days I'm sure), I'm going to finish listening to my BL dramas and then sleep. Mmmm... so much SephirothxCloud, even if they're not supposed to be Sephiroth and Cloud. *loves on their voice actors for my impending eargasm*
you can have my precious bones on my return: pinwheellirimaer on May 23rd, 2006 12:56 pm (UTC)
You should have told me you were in Ottawa. :P

Sorry you had to come up during this sucky cold snap. It was warm until like friday. Then it suddenly got cold out of nowhere.

Heh, I think I mentioned it at the tail end of an entry before I left, I don't remember. ^^; I'd completely forgotten that you were in Ottawa... I was sitting there wondering because I knew there was someone, but my internet was still crazy then and so going anywhere to check was out of the question. x_X;

I was only there for what amounts to a day though--and that day was spent helping my dad warm up and trying to make him less nervous without ever hinting that I knew he was nervous. It would have been nice to run into you while I was there, sigh.

Heh, and it figures I'd have such great timing with the weather. ^_^;

Welcome back. I think like everyone went away last weekend, I noticed.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 23rd, 2006 07:05 pm (UTC)
Heh, so you only notice when everyone leaves in bulk? ;p

Were they all Canadian and therefore had the excuse of a national holiday to be gone for?

I noticed you were gone, I was waiting for you to come on MSN :D hopefully see you there tonight?

I'll be connecting on the wireless for about two hours after six-ish... hope I can catch you then. ^_^; ResNet is evil and apparently 5 GBs is way over the alloted bandwidth. D: They just don't appreciate me downloading mass amounts of stuff!

Everytime you mention Canada, i've by then forgotten that that's where you are from XD.

;ppppppp Perhaps I should say "eh?" more often? And buff up my igloo to its former shiny glory, just to make things easier, eh? ^_^

My pet beaver could use a walking too. ;p
