Procastination of Semester 2 has officially begun!

First things first... an announcement! My cousin has just gotten engaged! Quite exciting. Shes been dating this nice guy for a few years now, and they finally got engaged! The wedding will be small, but I hope to go to the ceremony... cousins aren't invited to the reception :(. Hehe, a little news to brighten my day.

Secondly, my sympathies to those tall Redeemer students who have to lug home the mini-shopping carts 'The Market' provides for us. Being a tall Redeemer student myself I have been blessed with short dormmates who are willing to bring the full cart back, in exchange for me carrying it there. Though I understand how frustrating it is to be slowly carrying it back and then hear it fall on the ground... eggs smashed, bread smushed, grapes rolling everywhere. Hehe, one thing I never realized though is how funny it is to watch this happen to someone else. Lol, sorry guys, but I looked out my window in time to see it drop out of your hands. Luckily only your bread fell out. Oh, and props to the intellectually superior students who tape hockey sticks or contraptions that make the handle longer. Genius!

Thirdly, I'm starving... Can someone give me an idea for some lunch?

Bon soir!

Bonjour. Je m'apelle Claire. Je vais ecriver cette journale en francais parce que je suis agacant et enneyeuse. Mes apologies a toi Kimber, je sais que tu ne sais pas qu'est ce que je dit, mais si tu parles avec moi je vais deviner pour toi. Je pense que cette journale va etre utile pour apprendre le francais Kimber! Tu sais que je suis correcte!

J'accord. C'est decider. Je suis un(e) nerd. Completement. J'ai donne des 'brackets' a cette 'e' parce que je ne sais pas qui c'est feminine. Est'ce que c'est masculine? Je ne sais pas. Ci tu sais, sil vous plais ecriver ici. Merci!

Alright. Well since thats done and I've diagnosed myself as a 100% percent complete nerd in the region of french. Except I made our french teacher's day today. Hehe, she said we should look at the French board that Yolisa deJager made about her trip because theres a ticket to a theatre on her board that is in the movie we just watched. Anyway, because of my nerdity I wanted to nlook at it. So I stopped. And she walked up behind us and said " You just made our day." Hehe, oh to be teacher's pets, i.e. nerds. What fun.

By the way, if you go to Kimber's blog. Which because I don't know how to make links on this stupid blog thing it is...,, Tal refers to her as the essence of cool, and as she is THE coolest. I would like to refute this. Now, Tal of course is the essence of cool. I agree with that. I mean come on, shes friends with me. Who isn't ;). But I have to say she can't be the coolest. I am in fact cool itself. If anyone was in the vicinity of coolular, that would be me. Tal only comes into that because she hangs out with me. Bahaha! And that is my refutation... if thats a word... and I know... its a horrible refutation... how horrible is the vicinity of the refutationular... but rest assured... and please believe. my words speak the truth... i am THE cool. Tal is a friend of THE cool. Therefore, from the process of deduction... she can't be THAT cool. Muwahaha.......

Alright I'm spent. Chow my friends :)... oh and Christina, I miss you!

Props to all my women out there

I randomly checked my Yahoo mail this morning, or rather afternoon... I just woke up. And there was a forward from a lady I worked for over the summer entitled "Women." Anyway, it was really cool so I've decided to put it on here.

By the time the Lord made woman, He was into his sixth day of working overtime.
An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this one?"
And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart and she will do everything with only two hands."
The angel was astounded at the requirements. "Only two hands!? No way! And that's just on the standard model? That's too much work for one day.Wait until tomorrow to finish.
"But I won't," the Lord protested. "I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND can work 18 hour days."
The angel moved closer and touched the woman. "But you have made her so soft, Lord."
"She is soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."
"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.
The Lord replied, "Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate."
The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek. "Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."
"That's not a leak," the Lord corrected, "that's a tear!"
"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.
The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride."
The angel was impressed. "You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything! Woman is truly amazing."

And she is! Women have strengths that amaze men. They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice. They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a bettersolution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart. Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

Endquote. Wow. I just thought it was really cool, as a woman myself, to think about the way God made me. Obviously he didn't have a conversation like that with some angel dumb enough to question His craftsmanship. But.. well, anyway, it was a nice piece of encouragement. I hope it can encourage some of my fellow ladies out there.

Chow my friends :)

So, I've just come on the internet and I was looking around at all my dormmates blogs and decided to check mine. Lol, only for the reason that I decided to finally update it. Anyway, I checked the comments and found some "anonymous" one saying "UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE..." lol, oh dorm 201. Whichever of you it was I ruv you ;). That's right. Ruv.
What was odd though is when I signed in and it shows you the little tool bar or whatnot it said my last update was December 30/2004. If I"m not correct, Dec. 30 is two days ago, and my last update was Dec. 15. Hmm. I'm confused. "Confoosed and Confuffled" as my dormmates would suggest I say.
Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't updated in awhile. There isn't much motivation too. Life hasn't been very eventful. Though I got almost all of my shifts given away at Zellers and got too come home for my last week off! So excited. It has been fun too.
One word of advice for this post: Vaughan Mills. Amazing mall; has a Tall Girl; huge parking lot; right off the 400; DON'T BRING MONEY WITH YOU. Lol, and that, is my advice. You should all take the trek to this new Vaughan Mills mall. First of all as mentioned it has a Tall GIrl shop, second of all its a huge mall! with some pretty funky stores. THe only problem is you will spend money if you go there. So if you have no money and don't want to spend it then don't bring anything with you. Period. Hehe.
Also, I have a beef. Now I'm not so good at putting these 'beefs' into words cuz I tend to just ramble. Lol, I need someone who could put it more eloquently. But you know what bugs me?! Slow drivers who purposely stay in the passing lane when they know you want to pass them. I got behind this quite slow driver. She was quite annoying. Ugh. Anyway, I was patiently awaiting this part of the road where they open up a passing lane. Its the point when all the fast drivers get giddy and scoot around all the stupid slow people, no offense to any stupid slow people I know ;). Anyway, so the passing lane earrives, and the nice little lady stays in it! Ugh! Isn't it a known rule that you stay to the right unless passing people?!?! THats right. It is. So I had to follow the chick practically all the way home. Oh man. So people, follow the rule thats there for a reason: so fast drivers like me can get home that 76 seconds quicker.
Lol, okay, theres my update. Now I have to go cuz my fam is watching some weird movie and my tapping is to loud for them. I can't help it I type fast :). Chow my friends... and Happy New Year!
