What would come of if these two things made babies?

I found a pic of that dog on the right there on my friend’s page… and here is the link to where she got it from =S The cat on the left I found on that page.

Mr Fix-it

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

What an evening….I get off work and come home to install the new starter in the car. Now, I’d never done this before and I’m no mechanic…but I managed to do it proudly without the manual =P

After which, I have a quick bite of dinner before heading out to the bank and then Megan’s house. she had been given a junky old computer from a friend who didnt want it and Megan thought that she might be able to add stuff to her new computer! Well, it was much too old…it had a 1055MB and a 850Mb hard drives. We basically used a few screws and stole the 40x CD-ROM…

For the intermission from the fix-it story, I picked up Jay from work, then played a good game of settlers of catan.

Then just twenty minutes ago, my brother came-up and told us the toilet was spitting out water. My dad had fallen asleep already so it came down to me. I still havent a freakin clue wtf is wrong with it, but I had to bucket the water, and mop it up with towels. I originally had quickly shut off all water to the house cause I knew already how to do that. Later I figured out that the toilet has a nob of its own that I turned off so people could brush their teeth and stuff. Basically I just left it all broken so yeah…it wasn’t really a “fix-it” to add to my story…but I did stop it from flooding downstairs while we all sleep! =P

Thanks Gramps

The starter on my car went again and so we’ve been left with just the truck for the past few days. My dad has been getting rides to his work with another fellow, while my mom spends around 3 hours each day driving all of us to where we need to go and picking us up.

This morning, my Dad got his usual ride to work, but he accidentally took the truck keys with him! Now of course we have a spare, but the thing is that his set has that beepy thing on it that disengages the alarm!

If that thing ever got broken we’d be screwed! Yikes…

But it’s not like my dad could even get home to give us the keys if he wanted to! He’s stuck 45 minutes away with our keys. I heard this from my bed and decided to smile and roll over and go back to sleep =P But my mom called around and got the other guys to school and eventually called grandpa and he drove out to my dads work, then back to our place with the keys, then had to zip out to wherever someone like him goes.

I woke up much later…like 10:20am, and got to work by 10:45. I had a chuckle explaining it to my boss =P

Push Pin Darts

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006


Oh man this is great stuff…take a normal office push pin. Hold it like a dart and try to throw it into your cushy cubical wall that doubles as your bulletin board! You know what I mean…and just TRY to get it stuck into the wall…it’s kinda tricky…still no success in sticking at my end.

Many times it bounces back and then you gotta catch it before it hits the desk and makes noise…other people might get suspicisious if they hear noise…

Faded Friend

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

There was this girl’s blog I was reading, but the website is gone now. She had it up about a week or so and I was reading the whole time. She was all alone in the world because she was pregnant with a boyfriend who didn’t care for her all that much. She didn’t have any friends or family close to where she lived so she never got to see anybody else. It was her rantings of her existence.

I wish her luck with her baby.

Gamblor Approaches!

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

I did some gambling for the first time yesterday =P I bet just $10 that 5 hockey teams would win:

  • Philadelphia
  • Carolina
  • Ottawa
  • Vancouver
  • Los Angeles

Of all of those teams, won last night except for my home team, the Vancouver Canucks! All the odds were completely in my favour…

I’ll be doing a little more planning ahead for next-time. Although…their 4-0 loss wasn’t really predictable considering they were playing the last place team in the league!

It was fun so I’m doing it again soon =P
