Another sloppy night in the name of Life and Happiness :)

Ok. Home from Toronto. LONG WEEKEND. Had a nap lol. Needed a nap. Need a week off. Imagine Spring Break... But then add some things like- Bouncers, slippery floors, cold nights, small costumes, no furniture. Yep. Great weekend. For those of you not on my Facebook... My status states how I feel... less that I think I'm coming down with strep... Oh well.
Thanks again lady loves <3
Going to a Kegger and being a Nanny have everything in common: There are a lot of people running and screaming aimlessly, Everyone needs a snack and a drink, "NO YOU CANNOT TOUCH THAT" will be said in some context throughout the night, Some people just need to have a little time out or nap... It's okay. Pissing off the other children will result in an ass kicking, AND, I will need a drink to cope with it. xoxoxoxo ♥ Thank you LIS and MATT!! And Tdot Crew! And HomeBase for the awesome weekend.

Pictures to follow... Hangover first. AND and business plan comes out of the weekend... Event Management watch out...

Have your cake and eat it too...

Yet another sleepless night and so I have decided to write lists... About what ever I want.


  • Sometimes I like working. 
  • We get wicked food at work.
  • I work DT. Score!
  • I deal with some awesome loaded people everyday (some drunk some rich, some a combo). 
  • I deal with some snooty rich people from time to time. 
  • I met our Mayor and gave him the shittiest service unknownly. I'm the only person who can score tips from everywhere except with the VIP. Oops. 
  • I f*cking hate waiting for elevators
  • I love manditory breaks.
  • I walk really fast. 
  • My tips pay for my gas and parking. 
  • I'm overpaid.
  • But damn good at my job and I love it!
  • I got flowers to take home tonight <3 A beautiful centerpiece!! (Now if Ringolopolus would just leave them alone!!)
    Dating in the 90's:
    • My new TV Show concept. Because we have so many shitty reality shows, and game shows, and dating shows, and relationship counselling... That I propose a combonation!! DATING IN THE 90'S
    • No cellphones, no facebook, computer limited, landlines... real dates. Bar hopping... and then:
    • the follow up with the relationship bs and then turn it into an elimination show and we are solid.
    • And then just for fun give them challenges.. like, but not limited to: addressing an envelop for the mail, using dialup internet, speed dating, bad 90's theme dress, pub crawls... The potential is limitless!!! BE EXCITED!! TUNE IN SUNDAY!!
    • SUGGESTIONS APPRECIATED. I was single digits in the 90's... I didn't really have a lot going on in the dating department if you know what I mean ;)
    HELL!! We could even counteract it was current dating and just how f*cked up it really can get, but that's a whole new lists and I'm retiring for the night...
    Things I'm not going to get done tomorrow:
    • Not go to the gym
    • Not volunteer... sorry kiddies... I need the morning off. 

    Thing I might get done tomorrow:
    • Work
    • Buy workout clothes lol
    • Get the dogs nails clipped
    • walk Maggie at Bruce Pit
    • SLEEP!! Need some
    • and COFFEE <3

    That's it for now. xox

    Already Failing...

    Yo and hello all,
    So I'm already failing at consistently posting, but I'm working on it. The European trip things are on my other computer and it's been all the way upstairs for the past week in a room I haven't been in. So the long and short is I got lazy.
    But anyways. I've been working the past few nights too and just decided that today is totally a me day and that's it. Blogging included I suppose :)
    The past week has been crazy. I'm house sitting and dog walking for my parents and it's nice to have a house to myself. I say "mself" loosely though because since my parents left it's been busy. It's really nice though. Alli and Laurel and Karla have been here for most of the time and I hosted two couchurfers, Eddie and Tiffany, and then there was Masquerade Turkey Fest too... It's been busy but it's solid and I'm happy.
    And working at the Convention Centre is sweet too. Love it.
    More to follow when I get less lazy. Me day in progress. Girls nights while wine to follow.
    Love. xo

    Your mission today: Make someone you don't know smile.

    PS Extra awesome points for the gas guy last night selling me Belmonts for the price of the cheapest smokes. I owe you cookies.

    A Mad Lib.

    So In no particular order I have decided to attempt to post a mad lib a day related to Christina and my travels. But here's the thing, I just realized that it's totally not on this computer so I will try to do one today in the morning after I sleep for a bit. Again, sorry for the "falling off the face of the planet" thing, I will get back into it.
    Love love love and kisses and hugs <3

    Sorry, I was busy galavanting...

    Yo and hello to anyone out there!
    A few things to address today, including but not limited to: 1) An apology. 2) An update. 3) Home life and 4) Big plans and other mind tangents. Shall we begin?
    So, best always to start at item 1. on our agenda...
    1) My bad for not writing in what feels like a decade. I was a little all over the place and dealing with a lot of planning and traveling and in general all the wonderful things in life. I promise to attempt to actually write something semi intriguing every few days... or weeks... or whenever from now on.
    2) So as anyone who has read any of my blog before knows, I was living abroad this year in Paris. My foreign-single-mother-of-three days officially ended (which in itself is a completely different story) and I set out with travel buddy extraordinaire, Christina.
    We hit up Rome, Italy; Rhodes, Greece; Pretoro, Italy; (I step off the train in Austria) Munich, Germany; Bern, Switzerland; Milan, Italy; Venice, Italy; Zagreb, Croatia; Budapest, Hungary; Krakow, Poland; Prague, Czech Republic; Berlin, Germany; Bruges and Antwerp, Belgium; Amsterdam, Netherlands; London, Southampton, and the countryside, England; and finally back to Paris, France for a few days before flying home.
    It was as amazing as you can imagine multiplied by... like... 12 or something. We ate local dishes, visited a market in every city, partied, slept on train floors, in hostels, on benches and couches of friendly strangers. We sight saw and visited museums and cultural points. We took walking tours and picnicked. We made friends with locals and travelers alike and have millions of stories, tips and photos to share.
    I'll attempt to edit our "Mad Libs" style notes from our journeys into something readable. I will take forever... but I want to share it that much!
    3) I'm home now. Flew in on August 24th... Wow, I just noticed I've been home for over a month. And thank whomever that I'm getting my shit together, because after a month you start to feel and become a mooch.
    Still working out living situations and job stuff, but I did just start at the Ottawa Convention Center as a Banquet Server. Which I must add is pretty awesome. I'm stoked about it, and having had my first 3 shifts I know it's perfect for me right now. Aside from that I'm waiting on security clearance from France (WTF? I know...) to start at the Royal Canadian Mint. So the career and income thing is being taken care of for the moment. Pay day has a whole new meaning when you haven't had one in 5 months...


    So 3) Continued, I got paid and that is awesome!! I am also host two couchsurfers, one from the Bahamas, Eddie, and one from France, Tiffany. It's pretty awesome. More on that later if I remember...
    WELL, WAIT...

    Side Note: www.couchsurfing.org is this incredible community that I talked about before hand I'm sure, but you offer what you can to travelers. Whether it be time, a dinner, a couch or bed, a day trip or a ride. It's a pretty epic concept. Really safe a reliable and typically the people are super chill and awesome. I lucked out.

    Side Note 2: We went to Kingston today after stopping in Kars are to kayak at the grandparents and visit there and it was lovely. Tomorrow is shopping in Montreal followed by working from 6pm till 2am so I'll probably make it to Amanda's by... 4am? Sleep in and recoop.

    Number 4). What was that again? (It has been two days, so please give me some grace) SCROLL UP!!

    Oh how appropriate: Big Plans and Mind Tangents: Well there are many.
    First off of those is what I like to call the "2-year-plan". It's this awesome idea that I have to head to Amsterdam in two years time. I am working towards that by setting up the mundane grown-up things like savings accounts and investing and working hard and long to make some cash money. Its good though. I'm learning Dutch too... well in theory I'm learning Dutch, I need to actually read the things to learn it. But yeah. That's plan Numero UNO.
    Second off is the current travel plans. Lets be honest I can't stay still. So a trip is in the works... the Bahamas for $800 or a road trip or a short road trip and the beaches?? But something around Christmas for sure.
    Thirdly? Correct punctuation? I never claimed to be an editor. But any whooo. I also have this extremely complicated and elaborate

    But yeah that's about it. Things are all going well and I will try to do a few Mad-Libs soon for you to read. If you are reading. If you you are that's pretty damn cool and when I see you, if I should ever see you, I will reward you with a sticker.... OH THAT REMINDS ME:
    Tangent #1: Birthday game success of the year? "Pin the tail on the donkey adult version" aka "Stick the Star Stickers on the Nipples on the hot guy with pecks". And I got serenaded outside of the club by a group of like 20 guys. Awesome days and nights. Because there was great karaoke at the Bull on the Thursday too.

    But much love. Enjoy and here is a picture of something cool:
