So after just over 11 months in Windsor, I am now counting down to the move to Toronto. I now get to finish packing, study and try and do all the “Windsor things” I never bothered doing. So far I’ve got:
1. Eat at Tunnel BBQ so my father stops asking if I ate there.
2. Go back to Detroit one last time; maybe visit the D.I.A. and go to a Tigers’ game.
3. Hang out with Windsor buddies.
4. I can’t think of anything else.
May your cats/kids/loneliness keep you warm! I’m watching Cops and dealing with tummy issues with tea.
Haven’t been posting much/been super busy doing stuff like:
•Working, a lot
•Studying for bar exams
•Having stomach pain
•Touring the new Windsor Regional Jail
•Visiting the dentist
•Trying to set up TV Guide Dixie for XBMC
•Planning my trip to Chicago with Maxxx
•Supporting Alain’s decision to join the band Minors
And other stuff! I’ve updated the listings, but because it’s cold and stuff, I’m not going out much.
I’ve had stomach flu since last Friday, which SUCKED! I haven’t done much since then. There were shows and other stuff, but I missed it all. My buddy Lauren, who’s in Toronto, is going to be induced into labour any second now. It’s pretty exciting! Also, it’s my birthday tomorrow, so maybe her baby and I will share a birthday. That would be pretty neat! I have no plans for my birthday. I was going to go out for dinner last night, but was way too sick.
It’s supposed to snow really bad all weekend. I want to go out and be social, but it’s hard to do stuff in Windsor with all this snow and without a car. I’m also REALLY tired from going to the Winter Classic; we were outside, in minus 14 weather, not really moving, with no bathroom access for 6 hours. It was really nice seeing my pals Jamie and Derek!
I’ve updated the show listings; there’s a bunch of shows happening at Yonka House in Detroit and even one at Holden House.
I’m probably going to stay in and keep myself busy with projects. I have some sewing and cooking to do. I made Chicken Alfredo sauce for the first time. That was fun! My New Years resolution was to try new things and enjoy myself more.
