11 January 2008 to 22 January 2008

Last night I watched Sweeny Todd (fantastic Johnny Depp) @ the movie theatre w/Gwen & then she took me to Applebee's for supper, yum!
07:30 AM January 11, 2008 from txt

Enjoying breakfast @ Tim Horton's with Cliff.
12:01 PM January 12, 2008 from txt

Cliff has left in a cab just now. It means a great much to me that he visited two weekends in a row. The best thing to share is time.
06:30 PM January 13, 2008 from txt

He likes me more than bricks.
06:52 PM January 14, 2008 from txt

Cousin Toni is here sleeping. It's so cold in my apartment. I am still unable to handle heavy smoking (of others) gives me such a headache.
12:18 PM January 15, 2008 from txt

My big futon mattress is in my livingroom & the frame is awfully broken in the bedroom. This is so comfortable! We're watching 'The Craft'.
07:10 PM January 15, 2008 from txt

Crying big sobby tears through the ending of 'Big Fish' - a film that reminds me of my father and I.
06:04 PM January 16, 2008 from txt

Alone for the night. Whatever will I do with myself?
10:46 PM January 16, 2008 from txt

Going to bed. As if you care.
11:29 PM January 16, 2008 from txt

Some beeps on my phone wake me up while some don't. Good morning; I dreamed too much.
09:08 AM January 17, 2008 from txt

Sitting legs crossed with a purring cat in my lap who has his paws & claws tugging at my hair.
09:34 AM January 17, 2008 from txt

I should sort my laundry into small piles of importance to handle bits at a time. Maybe apply this method to other parts of my life. Easier?
09:39 AM January 17, 2008 from txt

I still have a girl crush on 'ellen' - shhh!
10:16 AM January 17, 2008 from txt

Going to the laundromat - finally! Full buggy & backpack. Might be gone for days.
01:11 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

Gwen has volunteered me to go on the air on a radio station (fm96) for a trivia know-it-all show specific to one of my fave films.
02:10 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

Should be laughs & fun if I win and this ought to up my best friend points - especially if I humiliate myself!
02:16 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

I have completed the task of laundry and now I am walking home.
03:32 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

That didn't take so long afterall. (home now) of course, there's the putting away to be done, but the big task is over.
03:44 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

Watching 'Aliens' with Gwen who hasn't seen it yet.
05:12 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

I have a lot to remember about the film before the radio show. Doubtful they'll quiz me on how hot Hicks is or the lines I've memorized.
07:59 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

She said, "Nothing changes, m'dear" - & so it goes. She gave in/up sooner than I expected. People are making me look strong in comparison.
09:42 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

I surprise myself with just how quickly I can make it look like nothing happened here, to me - skill learned long ago, refining.
10:30 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

Going to bed --- in my rearranged bedroom.
11:24 PM January 17, 2008 from txt

Awoke believing myself to already be awake. Thought I was making plans to hang out w/ this guypal who plays guitar, vinyl & trivial pursuit.
07:06 AM January 18, 2008 from txt

Turns out it was for me to open my eyes, check the call list to make sure & forget completely whatever nightmares I had before the fake up.
07:10 AM January 18, 2008 from txt

I'm going to read more of the library book I've got on the go and stay in bed where it's warm awhile.
07:13 AM January 18, 2008 from txt

Fell back to sleep after reading a page or two. Phone woke me just now with an appt for next Wednesday morning. (My left ear hurts a lot).
11:05 AM January 18, 2008 from txt

I have so much laundry to put away that I feel ashamed of myself. Near time to donate again.
11:07 AM January 18, 2008 from txt

Delivered to my door was a copy of my "entire" WSIB file (i have several years' folders of my own as well) &so begins the Objection process.
12:55 PM January 18, 2008 from txt

Postal mail delivered paystub for thattaxjob & a last hurrah pay from the Objectees (I am the Objector) & so I will go pay March rent ahead.
12:59 PM January 18, 2008 from txt

I will not be intimidated. I will not be intimidated. I will not be intimidated.
01:02 PM January 18, 2008 from txt

I'm in London on the way to the train station - hoping I'll get there in time for the one leaving in a few minutes!
11:16 AM January 19, 2008 from txt

Bought my ticket just in time. whew! (Scott & Ada drove me to the station so I could catch the train to Toronto).
11:28 AM January 19, 2008 from txt

Ada came back with a Tim Horton's hot drink (yay!) & it worked out perfectly because the train has a 15 minute arrival delay.
11:34 AM January 19, 2008 from txt

Boarding for Toronto.
11:54 AM January 19, 2008 from txt

Best I learn when to keep my mouth shut or better yet when to talk & to whom. I should keep my lunatic ranting to myself. Even my ears hurt.
12:09 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

Reading 'The Gucci Bag' by Irving Layton.
12:11 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

I dislike the washroom on the train very much. (Especially after the door slid open to the delight of a slightly intoxicated man passenger).
01:06 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

10 minutes and I will be at Union Station in Toronto, woo!
01:53 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

Oh such wonderous glee! A washroom that stays still! I'm contemplating taking my sweet time getting to Cliff's place (just to torture him).
02:16 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

On a westbound streetcar. Go me!
02:34 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

I've missed Queen Street West. Sentimental fool, I am.
02:54 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

Trinity-Bellwoods Park. I love this place.
02:59 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

Had dinner with Cliff @ "Terroni" & I got a spot of chocolate on my pretty sweater. Next: a movie. It's a date!
07:09 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

Just watched "Cloverfield" - fricken awesome movie!
09:27 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

The parking lot that Gwen & I used when we saw The Tragically Hip perform @ the CBC is a hole in the ground - to be condos & film festival.
10:02 PM January 19, 2008 from txt

About to venture out of Cliff's apartment and wander around.
12:40 PM January 21, 2008 from txt

I forgot that a transfer isn't needed when using a metropass, oops. Cliff gave me his card for the day so I could roam about, explore.
01:07 PM January 21, 2008 from txt

I always loved getting on the path through the Sheraton Centre - ever since my solitary stay at age 17.
01:18 PM January 21, 2008 from txt

Gwen just confirmed that we're a go on a radio show for February 1st. I suppose, given all she's put up with over the years, I will do it.
01:58 PM January 21, 2008 from txt

Two police officers walk into the donut shop. I am immaturely amused.
05:43 PM January 21, 2008 from txt

Oh my goodness. They just keep coming. Must be a shift change?
05:45 PM January 21, 2008 from txt

These cops are in uniform but one set was in a white unmarked van and the other in a likewise car. Sleuthy.
05:48 PM January 21, 2008 from txt

I rode the subway a lot yesterday. I didn't explore as much as I should have but I found a place that sold orange listerine strips.
12:24 PM January 22, 2008 from web

Last night Cliff ordered delicious Italian food. Better (& cheaper!) than the restaurant we went to that had a queue! Also, more exclusive.
12:26 PM January 22, 2008 from web

Mixing my meds with wine causes me to pass out & snore. Not the best way I would have chosen to conclude the trip, eh?
12:27 PM January 22, 2008 from web

Overall, the visit went well, surprisingly not terrible? Tender & hot moments mixed w/a funny quiz show... & I've been invited back again.
