Tonight is my first final exam. Social Context of Business- boring, but easy.

The I have economics on Saturday, followed by CALCULUS on Sunday.

I am going to be fucked for calculus.

I've downloaded too many episodes of The Office, and spent too little time studying.

Next week I have philosophy (yawn), and marketing.

Then I'll be DONE until January.

Weirdo Centre

Okay, so today I'm at work, serving a customer. Out of the corner of my eye I see a guy come into the store. Then, he PULLS DOWN his pants and underwear, and bends over. In our store. In a busy mall, at four o'clock in the afternoon. By now, we are all staring at the guy. Then, HE STARTS SHOVING SOMETHING UP HIS ASS. His ass. He gets it in there, pulls up his pants, does up his belt, and leaves. Doesn't look at anyone, doesn't say anything. Just strolls off down the hall. I know that Rideau Centre can be a weird place, but this was too much! I mean, who does that?

Anyways, at least we all had a good laugh. Security thought it was pretty funny too. And it's on video.

Mooncakes and Midterms

Oct. 17th, 2006 | 12:11 pm

I'm in the middle of exams, and so far, things are okay. I got my calculus exam back yesterday. I got 64%, which Fred thought was pretty bad. I think that not failing is pretty fucking excellent, and I'm super stoked to be in the sixties. Yay! I got 96% on my philosophy exam, but it is the math mark that I am happiest about.

Work's going pretty good. On Sunday, I sold a $3600 watch, and a bunch of other stuff, so my boss was pretty happy. It was good timing, because I really need some time off to study for my economics midterm, and he had me working four days nest week. I asked him if I could shorten one of my shifts, and he gave me a whole day off, and a mooncake. Yum. It's full of red bean paste and salted duck egg. Mmmm...

Not too much else is new. Tonight I have a midterm in "Social Context of Business" and tomorrow night I have one in marketing. My last midterm is next Wednesday, I can't wait to be done.

Yuuuummmmmmmmmmmm........... Haagen-Dazs Mayan Chocolate ice cream is so good.

We got the keys to our condo today, and chose paint colours. Chocolate brown and gray-beige (the colour is called "oyster mushroom") for the living room, and avocado in kitchen.

Can't wait until the 27th when we're actually living there!!!

Ok, so big news....

Tomorrow Fred and I are going to look at a two story condo near here, and we're thinking of buying it. Fred went to see it today, and it's pretty awesome. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one up, one down), two balconies, hardwood floors, a wood fireplace... Plus there's an outdoor pool and a tennis court. Anyways, we'll see tomorrow, but I'm pretty excited!

Saw "Souvenir of Canada" at the Bytowne last night. It was really interesting... Basically a documentary by Douglas Coupland about the creation of an art installation called "Canada House". It was basically a typically Canadian suburban post-war house that he painted completely white inside and filled with still life arrangements of objects that highlight the Canadian identity. Boat floats from the Charlottes, a bathtub full of mussel shells, a blown up photo of Terry Fox's sock, beer cans, all kinds of neat stuff. It was pretty cool, and the shots of Vancouver (the hoolow tree in Stanley Park, the beaches on the North Shore, Mount Baker) made me HOMESICK! I miss the ocean! The trees!

Anyways, tonight Lisa, Jackie, Vanessa, and I (and maybe Fred) are going to the hill or somewhere to watch the show and the fireworks.

I'd better get to work. It's going to be a madhouse at Rideau Centre today.

Amazing weekend...

Saint-Jean was INSANE... There were so many people (250 000+), the show was AMAZING (Vincent Vallières, Anik Jean, Les Cowboys Fringants, Les Respectables). It was really nuts to be at a show with that many people, the plains (actually, all of downtown Québec) was a sea of people. And beer cans. And pee. And clouds of pot smoke. We are going again next year for sure.

We spent the 24th recuperating at Alex and Gen's place, then spent two nights at Fred's aunt's place in Lévis. Yesterday we shopped a bit at Sainte-Foy, and I got some clothes at Simon's. Then we had a barbecue at Fred's aunt's.

Anyways, it was a super super fun weekend. We're going to try to make it back up there for a few more days later in the summer.

Bonne fête nationale!

Fred and I are going to Québec tonight for the big Saint-Jean-Baptiste party. We're going to spend tonight at the show and crash at our friend Alex's place. Then we're going to hang out Saturday and Sunday, and spend Monday in Montréal. It's going to be so nice to have four whole days off!!!

Not too much is new, I haven't updated my LJ in ages. Fred and I went to see Cirque du Soleil a while ago, it was pretty awesome. Fred's birthday was yesterday, we went for supper with his family and spent the evening chilling out. And last weekend we went to Tremblant, which was awesome. Fred got his hair cut and he kind of (okay, not "kind of", totally) looks like a New Kid On The Block. It's pretty bad, but also pretty funny.

Work is going really well, I love my new boss, he's such a nice guy! So different from Epochs! Meaghan (a girl I worked with at Epochs) just got hired at Taing too, so we're working together again. Very fun.

Anyways, I hope everyone has a nice weekend!

xoxo Katie.
