7:52pm: Indeed so, because tomorrow is moving day! And I need to get to Mrs S's at...wait for it...6 AM
! Oh mer gerd! That means I have to be asleep by 9:15 so I can wake up at 5:15 having to my eight hours. Which is why I'm updating this now, rather early for me! Also, the internet is acting up a bit, so I want to make sure I do this now. I'm a bit concerned about the internet weirdness, I don't need it, especially since I've run out of data on my mobile and can't use the mobile network until Wednesday when July starts.
Anyway, busy day today what with work, and library volunteering and
the gym! All went well, except for the fact that I couldn't find my gym shoes this morning so I had to take my new ones - which I found to very tight indeed. It says size 7 on them, but the little sticker on the bottom of them had 6 on it. I certainly hope there hasn't been a mistake and it's just because they're new. Otherwise, I'm kind of stuffed since I took the stickers off so now there's no evidence of conflicting sizes.
Incidentally, I found my old pair of gym shoes, they were on my "clothes chair", I have no idea why I put them there...they were also covered by a few of my clothes, which was why I couldn't find them! Mystery solved. :OP
Moving along, I mentioned the adorable souvineers my parents got me during their trip and said I'd get a photo, and indeed I have! Here it is
. Look the little faces on the lip balms and that's a Prince Consort Albert decoration, I guess for a Christmas Tree, which actually makes sense because it was he who introduced the German tradition of Christmas Trees to his wife, Queen Victoria and thus Britain as a whole.
Speaking of trees...I haven't planted the shrub yet and when I got home today it was looking a little wilted...shit. I gave it some water, but I need to get a pot and some soil for it ASAP! I'd hate for it to die!
Right time is getting on, so I better wrap up the memes and then this entry!Saturday 9:I Miss You (1997):
... because Smellyann suggested it1) In this song, Bjork knows what she's looking for in a mate, she just hasn't met him yet. If you are/were still looking for The One, what two qualities would you hope he/she possessed?
Eh, not looking, but if I was I guess it would be a good sense of humour and niceness.2) The lyrics ask if you believe "that a dream can come true." Do you believe that dreams come true if you wish hard enough?
Dunno...sometimes they do, but sometimes they don't! It's a matter of luck, and probably a bit of hard work ;O)3) Bjork turns 50 this year. Do you treat "milestone" birthdays differently? Or to you, is your age just a number?
Well, I did have a big 21st Birthday party, but my 30th wasn't as exciting. I enjoy birthdays though for the friends, cake and presents, be they "milestone" or just regular.4) Bjork was always highly musical. At the tender age of 6 she began studying classical piano and flute. Sam is impressed because at the age of 6, she was still trying to master tying her shoes. Do you consider yourself musical?
Ha ha ha, no. I can't even clap in time, and I have no ability to carry a tune.5) She was born and raised in Reykjavik, Iceland. While the city is known for its bar scene, beer was banned there until 1995. How often do drink beer?
Really? Weird! I don't drink, so never.6) 66ºNORTH is one of Iceland's biggest employers. This clothier makes quality outdoor wear and this time of year they sell a lot of durable rainwear. Do you have a raincoat?
No, although I do have a blue trench coat which is rather waterproof, so I guess it could pass as one.7) In 1997, when this song was popular in clubs, Titanic was popular in theaters. Sam saw it and yes, she cried. How about you? Have you seen the saga of Jack and Rose? Did you enjoy it?
I have and I did enjoy it! I would have cried, but I wore contact lenses at that time and didn't want to lose them!8) Also in 1997, singer John Denver died. Name a John Denver song.
I got nothin', I'm not very good at remembering songs and artists.9) Random question: If you had the opportunity to sky dive, would you take it?
Oh Hell no. I'm afraid of heights! I wouldn't even get on the plane to go up in all honesty.Sunday StealingUnusual Things
Stolen from: My Random Randomness1. Who was the last person of the opposite sex you laid in a bed with?
Well it'd probably be one of my brothers when we were kids, I remember my little bro and I had to share the pull-out bed at my cousin's house.
