On Monday night John and Manda and Dad and I went to see the Pursuit of Happyness in Bellewille.

Surprise! I'm taking your picture in the dark, dark car with the bright, bright flash!

Surprise! Dad and I are being crazy in the back seat.

Awww, the young couple who loves each other.

Awww, the Daddy daughter duo taking pics while they walk.

Awww, 20 mins of commercials and previews.

Awww, not very many other people in the theatre.

The Microwave: 1983-2006 So Long Good Buddy

On Sunday afternoon while heating up some garlic biscuits the microwave died. He made a buzzing noise and then a frying noise and that was it. It was sudden, it was unexpected, it was tragic. We of the family Stewart are dealing with this great loss.

That's him before the coroner came.

During the autopsy.

And me beginning the mourning process.

Dave the Microwave had been with us since the summer Mom was pregnant with John. He was a gift from Grandma Renton (aka Big Momma). He is survived by Rhonda the Toaster and best friend Kel the Fridge. We appreciate your thoughts in this difficult time.

Sunday, December 17, 2006


So I'm at home in Brighton now. Just woke up from my first sleep here and am doing a little reflecting before I start my day.

I'm very glad to be home and to be with my family. My brother's girlfriend Manda is here (I met her for the first time last night - she's great!). Last night the five of us had homemade pizza together and watched a movie and all but Mom stayed up past 1am watching TV and taking in moderate amounts of 'Christmas cheer'. It was great. But there is always a bit of a downside to being home. Its hard to see my Mom in so much pain and to see her so frustrated with her condition. I'm glad that we're home and here to help her, but I know that we also create more work and more pressure. Also, Manda only stays until the 20th and I'll only see John for two weeks (after an absence of over 5 months) and then I won't see him again until May or June.

I'm glad for the break and the time off. But as usual, I still have school work to do and things to organize for January. So like most of the real world there is very little time that is actually 'free'.

The beginning of January comes as a very happy and a very sad time for my heart. Chelsea leaves for Florence then. She doesn't get back until the middle of June. This semester we have grown very close and have watched God work many wonders in each other. It seems just as our friendship is about to ripen, she is leaving. But after some angry accusations shouted at God he has informed me that all is well, and indeed it is. He is calling her there to study and I can't wait to see what he has in store for her and for me too - cause he is already setting things up in a very cool way. Simon comes back from South Africa in early January. I haven't seen him since last December. He is one of my closest and deepest friends. I will get to see him when I'm in London saying good bye to Chelsea (who is on her way to becoming a very close, deep friend). Simon will be around for almost a month before he heads out to BC to work for Jesus.

So you can see, bittersweet indeed. My heart is feeling a lack of middle ground - so much rejoicing and leaping and loving and yet, so much grieving and hurting. Good thing the creator of that heart also lives in it, so He can take care of it.

PS - hooray for me hooking the wireless router up at my parents' place & for church services that don't start until 11:20, so they allow for Sunday morning blogging

The RUC care packs are great (especially this semester) but I think that once you reach third year, your care pack should include an LCBO gift card.


Is it ok that I don't want to pack my snow boots to bring home - cause I would be ok if I could wear flip flops on Christmas morning? Does that make me a bad person?

The Battle For Sleep

A combination of procrastination, busyness and life events have left me in a familiar place of having lots of school work today and little school time in which to do it. Because I am both old and sick I can't do the all-nighter like the young kids can. You, the blog reader have been privy to hearing exactly how precious and needed my sleep has been this semester.

I just keep laughing at myself and the negotiations that have taken place in my head as the different parts of my brain fight for different things...

Laura's need for sleep: Ok, bed time!

Laura's fear for school: It's 8:30pm, nope.

LNS: Fair enough, we'll work.


LNS: Ok, bed time!

LFS: Nope, its only 2am and remember, there is no sleep tonight.

LNS: Whoa! I didn't get that memo. We have to sleep.

LFS: No, we have to finish this paper.

LNS: Ok, a little adrenaline and then sleep.


LNS: Ok, bed time!

LFS: Nope, its only 5am.

LNS: AAAAHHH! Sleep, now, always!

LFS: Too bad, we're not even close to finishing everything.

LNS: Uh guy, read the last sentence that was typed.

LFS: "the post modern gow will always have a task for itself"

LNS: WHAT DOES THAT MEAN! It doesn't make any sense. Bed.

LFS: Ok, maybe an hour.

LNS: Eight!

LFS: Oh heck no. Two hours.

Laura's hunger: Can we get a pizza?


LNS: Four and a half and I'm not going any lower.

LFS: Ok, and its not cause you're better, its cause we can't even see straight.

LNS: Yeah!

Birthday Bonanza

This is my younger brother:

He is one of my best friends. He lives in Iowa and goes to school on a baseball scholarship. We have a lot of good memories - cause when you grow up in the country your best friend is either going to be a sibling or a cow. And since I'm lactose intolerant and only have one sibling, well, its Johnny. We both love baseball, good music, making Mom laugh till she cries, walking around Fabricland wearing matching shorts, wrestling in the living room, and going on Stinky McDicks runs late at night when we come home from school. John is quickly growing to be an awesome man who has a big heart and a great juicy brain. He has a keen sense of humour, gives a great hug and may be just as good at cooking as I am. I haven't seen John since August the 6th and that makes me sad. But we're about to spend a good two weeks at home together. That makes me happy. I love my brother a lot. Happy 23rd buddy!

This is my friend Lisa:

Lisa and I have known each other since we were in Kindergarten. We played softball together for about a billion years. To this day her Dad is one of my favourite coaches. She is a person of integrity and strength. Our friendship has gone through some very thick and some not so thin, but still remained. Lisa is the kind of person who would support you through anything - and has! We went to school together for 10 years. We have also played basketball, volleyball, and track & field on the same teams. And been in a tone of the same plays and musicals. We have died our hair purple together, played a live version of Clue together, and been in many a lip synch. She is a teacher in Winnipeg now, which means that we don't get to see each other very often, but come Christmas break, look out, cause we'll be spending some time together. Happy 25th Lis!

This is my friend Lesley:

Lesley, aka Parsley, aka L.Bo has been my friend for almost 10 years. I met her at a Youth for Christ retreat in high school. We instantly bonded. Lesley knows how to laugh. And perhaps that's how I spent my first moments with her - laughing in two kayaks that were tied together (at their noses). We share of love of black men (but she has one), karaoke, food and Jesus. Lesley is really good at combining her love for Christ with everything else. This has taken her across the world. When she is gone I miss her. When she comes back we eat together. Our brains work a lot a like, which is both fantastic and terrible. She lives with my friend Sarah, aka Stanska. Because I love her I won't tell you exactly how old she is, but I can say she is a smidge older than I. Happy Birthday Les!

What's In A Name?

MSN Names:

me - you can't spell sinterklass without sin

jo - you can't spell santa without satan

Welcome to Christmas Spiritville, Jo and I will be your Chancellors.

Twins Basil

So you'll remember that I got my hair cut a while back. At that same time my brother decided to start growing his hair out. I anticipate lots of pics together at Christmas, but here is a preview of what he looks like....(with his lovely girlfriend Manda)

One friend, having just reviewed her Hallowe'en pics of me dressed like Richard Wikkerink, saw this pic and thought, "woah, who's that girl with Laura?"

The recital starts at 11am. I am up third.

For Dan

My brother's online name: "If baseball were easy there would be no soccer"

Not Scary

Remember last week's post with the (bad) pictures of my red, swollen arms? That was another fun allergic reaction to my shots! I had to take lots of Benadryl and ice my arm and all that other exciting stuff. Anyway, the doctor wondered why I haven't had so much as a bump on my arm when I leave the office, but then 4 hours later I have an escarpment forming.

I mentioned to him that instead of taking the not as strong but longer lasting anti-histamines like Allegra, Reactin, Aerius, etc I was just taking Benadryl, because that's what I had around. He thought that maybe it was the strength of the Benadryl that was keeping reactions away at the office and that as it wore off at home that's why I had my reactions.

So he told me not to take anything before I come in and he knocked me down to the first dose of vial 2. Now, we've been over this vial thing a bit, but lets refresh... Three vials, each vial is progressively stronger, and I get a progressively larger dose - So, I would start with vial 1, I'd get 0.05somethings of vial one, the next week 0.1 and so on until I don't know 1.0? I think there are only 4 or 5 doses for each bottle. Anyway, my troubles started part way through vial 2 and it took a solid 3 months to get through it. This is because every time I had a reaction, for the next week's shot I would have to go down 2 or 3 doses. So the doctor took me back down to 0.05 of vial two with no antihistamine.

I was a little worried. Not big worried that I was going to die, but um, cautious. Chelsea came with me just in case. I'm kinda glad she did. I got my shots and after about 10min they asked me how I was, and I was really ok. Then I started to get pretty dizzy, my chest started to tighten up, Chels said I was getting Rosy cheeked and I was just feeling bwah. After around 40min they came back to check me. The nurse looked at my arms (and there were only little bumps and a tiny bit of redness), but didn't ask me anything. Since my arms looked good she told me I could go. So I did.

Chelsea took me back to her place where I spent the next few hours on her bed feeling drunk and weirded out. But then I had to go for so much performing. I went through the afternoon and the evening with a fever, a headache and an urge to not breath deep. As the evening went on I felt better and better.

So go my body! It had to fight a little (ok, sort of a lot - but i didn't want to get all fussed over at the doctor's office, and it turned out ok), but this morning I'd say that other than a little rasp in the chest, you wouldn't even know what had happened!

Just To Make It Interesting

The multitude of performances and such starts in a few hours. If you come to all three things I will blog about you...so, if you come to chapel, come Wed or Thurs night to the COM 205 shows and come hear me sing in the recital then I will find a camera, get my picture taken with you and then blog about how much I love you. Ps you may have to let me know you were at all three.

(I'm still waiting to hear about what time I'll be singing on Friday)

Blood Removed and Groceries Bought

Well I had my specialist appointment on Thursday. I wish I could tell you lots about it, but there isn't much to tell. The Dr asked me a lot of questions; felt or listened to (or both) most of my body and then told me that he didn't think that there was some terrible disease lurking in my background. He felt like I was a healthy woman with whom there was just a couple of things that were 'off'. So he ordered up a bunch of tests. I had a bunch of blood removed today for them. Now we wait...

So there you are. Not dying which is good news, don't know what is happening, which is a little less encouraging.

The on-campus students are at hotels. First and Second parking lot are at the new Marriot and Third parking lot and Aug Hall are at the Super 8. All the dorms are dead bolted, the Mainstage was canned for the night, volleyball has been moved to Mohawk.

The logistical nightmare has become a reality. Eep.


Now they have to replace the transformer and do get that all done the academic building had to be evactuated! Early weekend!

AND, rumour has it that if they can't have power for over night they're gonna put all the on-campus kids up in hotels! Oh the logistics nightmare - hope the transformer works!

Ah Ha Ha

The power is out at Redeemer right now. A squirrel got into a transformer and fried the both of them.

You know what I want?

Some sort of machine thing that will moisturize my skin. All of it. In one shot. Some thingy that I just step into or in front of or walk around that squirts or slathers or somethings and just makes my skin all happy and not dry. I bet that have those on the star ship enterprise. "Computer: activate moisturizing sequence Laura Delta One." Oh yeah. That's the moisturizing of my dreams. For now I have to spend all this time with a little pump bottle. Bah.

Happy Birthday Katy

A Memory

Top row L-R: Crystal Williams (deceased), Lisa Moore
Bottom row L-R: Monica Banting, Sarah Grosjean, Laura Stewart

This picture was taken in Grade 8. We had it taken in celebration of a damn fine friendship. After looking at this I'm pretty glad I got braces (actually I'm missing a tooth here, it was removed for the braces). Also after looking at this I can tell you that Lisa still looks the same, as evidenced in her recent grad photo...

So yeah, I just wanted to post that pic of days and times gone by.

You should probably come to the choir concert on December 8. Trillium Brass will be there, so will lots of good music. You can get tickets here.

Friday, November 17, 2006


When you are in a friendship that lasts over 10 years you are going to have ups and downs in that friendship. And unless you're Christ, you're going to do and say things that are hurtful.

The other night I was struggling with the things as a kid or teenager that I had done that I knew had hurt Crystal. Things that I know if they had been done to me, would have hurt me. And I realized that I couldn't go and ask her to forgive me for these things, so matter how small or how long ago they happened. That hurt. But then I knew that I could ask Christ to forgive me for these sins. And I know he's already forgiven me for them. (Now I just have to accept this forgiveness.)

Thursday, November 16, 2006


Grandma's going home tomorrow! Her 87th birthday is on Monday and I was really praying that she wouldn't be in the hospital for that. And she's not! Whoot! Praise the Lord!

Don't Worry

I'm ok. Just processing a lot. No worrying.

Wednesday, November 15, 2006


There is a lot going on is this world/brain of mine. Things I've gotten into here, and things I can't let you in on. But its getting pretty crowded in here.

I was talking to Jill today and I told her that I wished I could compartmentalize things. That I could take each 'thing' separately and cry and swear and smash it out when I had time. But I think right now if I let one thing go then everything is going to come with it. And that's going to get messy. Its November. There is no time for messy in the life of a university student in late November.

A Series

So as you may have interpreted from the previous post (or as i am about to illuminate for you) one of my friends died and my Grandma Stewart is in the hospital.

I'm warning you now that there will probably be about a week's worth of posts on these subjects as I sort through some of the emotions. And really what better way than to do it through blogging. The warning is so you know what is coming and can avoid it if you want.

Why not get this party started...

The friend that died has a name: Crystal Williams. We went to school together from Grade 5 through to the end of OAC. I'm not gonna lie and tell you that we were the best of friends all the way through. In elementary school we were a part of a group of 5 girls who were very close. In high school we took a lot of drama classes together and because we were in the same wacked out French program we had geographies, histories, languages and stuff together. So we spent a lot of time together. Her Mom taught at our high school and taught me something to do with computers.

The first time I did Seven Minutes in Heaven was at Crystal's house, the closest I've come to being arrested was because of something I did at a party at Crystal's house, I saw a made for TV movie about Amy Fisher at Crystal's house and many more memories.

And its the memories that are getting me right now. When I learned of her death on Friday afternoon it started a movie in my mind. A movie replaying any interacting with Crystal that it could remember; both good and bad. A lot of people from my graduating class showed up at the funeral and sitting with them and spending time with them, looking at pictures, brought back so many more memories. So now I have all of these memories playing around in my head and all of it is juxtaposed by the fact that there will be no new memories made. Khattam-Shud.

At the reception after the funeral I was talking to Crystal's Mom. She pointed out a picture of the 5 of us girls from elementary school (gr 8) that had been professionally done and was hanging at the chapel. And she said that I had been a big part of Crystal's life and that I should never forget that. When I got home to my parents' place I dug out my last year book. I found what Crystal wrote to me: "Waura! You've made a huge impression on my life! I'll never forget you! See you around, Love Crystal Williams XOXO" Well Crystal, I'll never forget you either and as the pastor said, that is how you will keep on living.

My Weekend

  1. Fun
  2. And more fun...

I've had a two week hiatus of allergy shots because the doctor has been on vacation. I'm kind of scared to get the ball rolling again.

Ain't No Party Like An Alto-Club Party

Maybe 9 out of 10 of the altos were able to get together tonight and have a gathering. There was food, there was interviewing. There was SO MUCH laughing. There was Jennifer Lopez playing the accordion. It was good. I love altos. We are good people.

Bad News That Turned Into Good News

Remember how I was supposed to have my specialist's appointment on the 18th of December? Well the other day I got this letter in the mail telling me that my appointment had been moved from the 18th to the 21st. This brought a nice mix of both rage and disappointment. The 21st is five whole days after I'm done exams. So either I would have to go home and come back or stay in the hammer for a very long time. I was not so excited about either option.

I had to call the Dr's office to confirm that I knew about this date change. So yesterday I called and while I was talking with the receptionist I mentioned that the appointment was so far after I was done exams, and that I'm not at all from this area and that my Mom has limited mobility and I really need to go home and help get Christmas going, etc, and if there was anything she could do to get me in earlier it would be really appreciated, but that I knew I was on the low end of the pole for getting a cancellation. She heard my plea and told me that would have loved to give me something earlier, but that she just didn't have anything. She said it would be especially hard because I have an hour long appointment and those very rarely get cancelled. But she said she would put a note in the books just in case. I thanked her for her time and that was that.

Ten minutes later the phone rang. It was Dr Gibson's office. A pre-op had cancelled and I could have my hour on....wait for it....November 23rd! Woooo! I'm pretty excited. Thought I should share.

Trick or Treat

I went trick or treating. I dressed up as a city worker named Steve.

I went with my friend Melissa. She is both young and cute.

Her cuteness gives my age credibility with those handing out candy. Wouldn't you want to give candy to us?

This was my favourite punkin.

The End.


Well, you'll be relieved (but not you Jo, cause you said you aren't participating in this ritual), I figured out what all y'all can get me for Christmas...

A Sumo Bean Bag Chair. Seriously I need this (Go to the website, watch the video, look at the pictures, notice the free shipping). Why do I need this?
  1. its hip - so am i!
  2. it comes in neat colours - i'm neat!
  3. its perfect for someone with back pain - can't you just see me - laptop and a pile of books, got the ice pack nestled into the back of it, and there's me, able to to settle in without putting added pressure on my lower lumbar region, but not having to lie on my bed and type awkwardly. yes!

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Steegens - I love and appreciate you as a friend and a sister, more than you will ever realize.


You tell one person that they are coming to a costume party. Then you tell everybody else to dress up as that person. Sometimes you love Richard Wikkerink!

Doppelganger! I think we look eerily alike. I also think I look like Kevin Klein in French Kiss.

More Richards...

And more Richards... (including one from his blond unruly locks days)

Yet more Richard action.

And just in case you ever wondered what Richard would look like with pink hair...
