Doesn’t Yet Feel Like Christmas

Monday, December 24th, 2007

Last night I watched Episodes 2 and 3 of Lost Season 3 before crashing. I woke up this morning around noon when Craig came over and fixed up our window from the party. It’s great knowing a glaser!

Afterwards, I took a crap load of bottles to the liqour store to return them. I was a dozen bottles short of 200 empty Heineken’s – that’s 62 liters. I got $26.50 cash back, which I put into my wallet because I still have four cases of Heineken from my birthday!

When I got home, I cleaned the rest of the mold out of my car, then had lunch. Afterwards, I helped my mom cut a turnip.

Go Craig Go!

Snowboarding with Christine

Monday, December 24th, 2007

I woke up rather late today, around noon or one ish and Greg came by briefly to pick up some stuff. I called Christine first and asked her if she wanted to go up to Cypress, which returned positive! While I was waiting for her, I gathered my gear, and then spent almost an hour working on cleaning the inside of my car!

What has happened, is since it’s immobilized due to failure in aircare and then insurance expiration and lack of interest to spend the money to get it fixed at the moment, it’s just been sitting there. About a week ago, I noticed that it has signs of mold beginning to grow! Not very good, so today I scrubbed it out of about 70% of the vehicle before we had to head out. I’ll finish the rest tomorrow. I also noticed that the rain drops that I thought were on my windshield were actually on the inside! I dried it with a paper towel, and put a heater in the car while I was out boarding to dry it out and remove the moisture.

Christine was over around 3:15 or so, and we got a ride from my mom to pick up the Subaru at the mall from Brian and take it up the mountain! We stopped at Ikea and picked up a half-dozen 50 cent hot-dogs and then I almost got hit just outside the parking lot…. amazing evasive driving on my part!

We took Nate’s camera up and actually took some awesome photos of our adventures! To kick it off, here’s the best one of me doing a sweet drop!

I also took a few video clips, and threw them together here. It is actually quite a hilarious video about half way through:

I also realized yesterday why I’m not getting any comments on my blog posts anymore. It’s because everyone who commonly posts comments is currently in town and we’re hanging out all the time now! Hooray for Nate and Christine! And thanks to all others who post comments!

We did 16 runs by the way!

Twins Party

Sunday, December 23rd, 2007

I woke up and went out to Tim Hortons with Brittany before we said our goodbyes as she took off to head over to the island to spend Christmas with her family. When I got back, I cleaned up a little while some people were still sleeping, and then around noon I took off with my dad and we went to film a play.

When we got home, only a few people were still there, so I threw around a few plans for the rest of the day, and we ended up keeping Nathaniel and Brian and I took him to the mall for some Christmas shopping. A little later in the evening we went out to Amber and Amanda’s (the twins) Christmas party:

I ran off for a short period with Ray to meet Fader and Darcy at the theater to watch the Walk Hard movie. We kicked around until about 1:30, when I drove Brian home.

When I got home, I got to talk to Brittany on the phone for a while which was really awesome! I went off to bed, and ended up almost falling asleep watching the first episode of Season 3 of Lost.

Christmas Party

Friday, December 21st, 2007

I hosted a Christmas party at my place on Friday night to celebrate Christmas – Nathaniel and Christine were both back in town so they invited a whole whack of people that they wanted to see. It works best to get everyone together on one occasion because of their limited time home. This was a very memorable party and was tonnes of fun!
