- met with L & J to have dinner at Thai place but didnt know place is closed for holidays, had to settle for japanese place next door
- was joined by K & J to Second City ... trevor the puppet reminded me of Avenue Q
- wind gusts picked up, saw traffic light hanging by a thread (or wire) at corner of spadina and king, it spinned and spinned, dibs on the traffic light!

And that is up to today at this time, whatever that is.
Oh, and i forgot to add the part where i eat like i have a bottomless stomach ...
Now i kinda regret my decision for the super hybrid soup... and i wanna get a new bike... oh, and my system's screwed up since i wake up @ 12pm, and sleep at 3am, mam my systems screwed when school starts again, which is next week...

Winds howling up a storm, hunger setting in....

Happy New Year Connie! Nice to see you blogging again.

Your list of stuff doesn't sound so boring, except for the studies/exam/assigment part.

Everyone passing by Kelly's desk at the office is admiring your card artwork. Anastasia & I took our cards home to show off to our families. Kelly interpreted your Xmas card to her,depicting a growling dog chasing the Santa Beaver to be the heavy workload (Growling Dog) trying to take a bite out of her merry life (the Santa Beaver), as she tries to run away from it. I have to agree with her.

I have been spending the holiday season eating, eating & more eating. Thus, either too lazy or too tired to do any blogging. Hope to get back on track soon.

I was hoping for good snow to begin our snowman/snow sculpture building contest over the holidays, but no such luck. Well, winter's not over, so the contest is still on?

What's with the snow shovelling business? I thought that you lived in an Apartment?

I enjoyed your New Year's Resolution List. I haven't given it too much thought, but may make one up. It will be a short list, if I do decide.

Connie, keep hanging around Anastasia and you will become a Social Animal just like her in no time.

All the best for 2009!
