What do you think about this statement?

Cougar Jr.

Some of you know that I joke about being a university aged Cougar (or Cougador). If you're unfamiliar with the term Cougar, it means an older woman who preys upon younger men for the purposes of dating and more. I joke about me being one because I'm 24 and first year boys are 17-18. That is younger than me. I don't actually put on tight animal print clothing and chase these boys. I only joke about it. I can also only really be a cougar while I'm still doing my undergrad. Once I've graduated my well of younger men will have dried up. Traditional Cougars are 40-75 year-old women who prey upon any male that moves.

Last night I was at an establishment with my friend Lesley doing some Kareoke. Lesley said that ordinarily there is a large group of her and her friends and then some younger women who sing strictly country music and wear tight shirts. Last night there was quite the crowd there due to the holiday season. There was also a Cougar Jr. Les and I figured she was about our age. She was wearing TIGHT jeans and a TIGHT shirt (with a gap inbetween). Her shirt had a cavernous plunging neck line ("w/your high heeled shoes and your low necked sweater") and a dangling necklace that drew the eyes down. She came in with some 17-21 year-old boys and when more came in she smelled fresh meat and went into attack mode. It was quite the show. She danced up a storm with these young men, drank a lot, took many, many digital pictures and generally did her thing. The funniest part was watching these boys try not to look at her boobs with her noticing that they were looking at her boobs. I was afraid when she would dance on the tops of chairs. A person could hurt themselves.

Wasting Time

So I'm waiting for a CD to burn. It is for the family trip tomorrow to Ottawa. It is taking quite a while and I've decided to amuse myself with you. A few of my friends from the region I grew up in have been tagging eachother with a blog thing where they have to post 5 or 10 random things about themselves. I don't want to force anyone to do that. But I thought I could likely come up with a few things, some interesting things, especially because I'm sleep deprived (stupid cats!) and bored with waiting for this CD to burn. So here I go:

  1. I've never been to Florida
  2. Both of my second toes are longer than the 'Big' toe
  3. I used to have a gap so big between my two front teeth that I could make them whistle
  4. I have chicken pox scars on various parts of my body
  5. My childhood teddy bear's name was Radar, he was named after the character from the tv show MASH
  6. I have manageble fears of both heights and water
  7. I hate onions, tomatoes and FISH
  8. I used to eat the fuzzies off of my childhood blanket
  9. I moved to Brighton when I was 2
  10. The Disney film Beauty and the Beast made me cry
  11. I'm too anal retentive to sleep in cars (and usually buses)
  12. I once stayed up for 36hrs straight
  13. I've dated two guys named Dan
  14. I couldn't spell decision until last year
  15. I wasn't allowed to wear jeans until grade 4
  16. I once called my kindergarten teacher Grandma
  17. My name was almost Victoria Caroline
  18. I've never broken a bone, but I have ruptured a vein and tore and hole in my lung wall
  19. Henna once made me puke
  20. I like to speak with accents when I order food in a drive through

A Return

I was supposed to mention to you that Jake has been blogging again.

An Intial Hurdle, But I Think It Will Be Great

Today -
I came downstairs, got my breakfast going and went into the bathroom to get my pill. I put the pill down to put the package away and it rolled off the counter and into the kitty litter box. Ew. But I will not be deterred. Marie Stevens is on her way here right now! Also, my Mom is feeling good enough to make fresh bread, my favourite kind with the salty crust. So I'll have my family, one of my best friends, homemade bread and chili. Oh me, oh my.

Its also snowing...big fluffy snow, or what Mom would call Julie Andrews snow (cause it falls on your nose and eye lashes)

Oh, oh guess what?!? Grandma and Grandpa Stewart are coming to our house on Christmas day! For breakfast AND lunch. We're really excited!

A Little Theatre History For You

...Just thought you should know that the Aztecs had a form a theatre where they would erect an 80 foot pole, tie a woman to the top of it by her feet and then have her spin around.

I think Redeemer needs that.

Candlelight Service

Ok, seriously...come to the Candlelight Service at First CRC tomorrow night (Sunday) at 6pm. Not only is it actually a candle lit service but it is soooo coool. There is lots and lots of music for the season, so its music you know. And First has the provisions for amazing music making. There are buses that go right to the church if you don't drive or walk. Come, come seriously come.


Some highlights (from my perspective) from an hour and a half of caroling:

  • "which one of you is the highest note ever?"
  • the drunk guy who requested Rudolph, sang it with us and then when we sang God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen broke into a solo verse about going to Pizza Hut and seeing King Kong
  • having 7 cents thrown at us
  • trying to pick out alto lines i've never seen before
  • people smiling at us
  • fun with nice people
  • singing stuff with alto lines that i did know and having some pretty tight harmonies come out
  • one police officer coming and watching
  • two police officers coming and watching
  • police officers making requests
  • police officers offering to take pictures of us
  • filling my car with people and taking every round-about on Kitty Murray as sharply as I could
  • things that came out of William's (Wilhelmus) mouth
  • hot chocolate at the tower after we were done

A Song With Good Words

Cry (if you want to)
by: Holly Cole

Cry if you want
I wont tell you not to
I won’t try to cheer you up
I'll just be here if you want me

It’s no use in keeping a stiff upper lip
You can weep you can sleep you can loosen your grip
You can frown you can drown and go down with the ship
You cry if you want to

Don’t ever apologize venting your pain
Its something to me you don’t need to explain
I don’t need to know why
I don’t think it’s insane
You can cry if you want to

The windows are closed
The neighbors aren’t home
If it’s better with me than to do it alone
I'll draw all the curtains and unplug the phone
You can cry if you want

You can stare at the ceiling and tear at your hair
Swallow your feelings and stager and swear
You could show things and throw things and I wouldn’t care
You can cry if you want to

I won’t make fun of you
I won’t tell any one
I won’t analyze what you do or you should have done
I won’t advise you to go and have fun
You can cry if you want to

Well it’s empty and ugly and terribly sad
I can’t feel what you feel but I know it feels bad
I know that its real and it makes you so mad
You could cry

Cry if you want to I won’t tell you not to
I won’t try and cheer you up
I'll just be here if you want me; to be
Near you

God's Sense of Humour

The last classes of the semester finish and then we get 5-10cm of snow.

death. death. death.

A New Sport

Through a slip of the tongue, I created a new sport last night: finger skating. Let your imagination go...

(but i didn't invent finger skate boarding...that already exists.)

Wednesday, December 07, 2005


Did you ever have a day that you weren't sure you wanted to start? That maybe your grades in so many classes depended on what kind of a day it was for you? And that maybe you'd rather stay in your bed where its warm, wearing you flannel sheep pyjamas and listening to the Simpsons on your computer?

I'm having one of those days.

(Ready, one, two, three....get dressed and go!)

Complete and Utter Bullshit

Jo and I received Pizza Pizza tonight. On the box there was a sticker for this campaign. Let me tell you here and now that that campaign is being run on a host of inaccuracies. As a diary farmer's daughter I can tell you truthfully that this campaign is a greed based smear campaign. So please if you see anything about it don't buy into it. And if you love your dairy farmers I would encourage you to avoid restaurants like Pizza Pizza that are a part of the campaign.

A Choir Post

I figured I should say something about the choir concert that was on Friday. I often feel terrible after these performances. I attribute this terribleness to putting too much pressure on myself, screwing up a lot, not practicing enough early in the semester, etc... But I actually feel good about the concert that just happened. I started extra rehearsals with other choir members at the very beginning of the semester, I downloaded as many of the songs as I could, I have the benefit of 3 semesters of voice lessons, and I'm a little more relaxed. Through many of those factors the concert went well for me. I had a good time and I had a healthy worship experience too. I'm not sure you can ask for anything more.


So last night on my way home from Sarah's bridal shower I was driving on Garner Rd right before Southcote. I looked ahead to the stop light and saw headlights in my lane. The headlights kept coming towards me in my lane. Some traffic on the other side of the road was slowing down or stopped to see what this vehicle was doing. I quickly pulled over to the side of the road in time to see a Ford Taurus drive past me in my lane. Then after it passed me it got into its own lane.


ps, if you read the post below you'll notice its mostly the same as this one. The difference is that i chose to hit 'replace' with every word spellcheck didn't like.

It Started In January 2004 And Now...


Those of us in university are really busy right now. Those in the outside world are really busy right now. Pray for someone. You know that you need prayer, and so do the people you see bustling about in your day.
