What goes around....

Yesterday morning while Brian and I were working out at the Redeemer gym, I started to get pretty nauseous. I chalked it up to the early hour (7:30am) and over-exertion (I increased my lifting weight by 10lbs). Later in the day, however, it became very clear to me that this was more than over-exertion. By 5pm I was making the short dash to the bathroom every 10 or fifteen minutes, a pattern that lasted until shortly before 10pm. Unfortunately I wasn't the only one in the house to suffer this fate last night, but thankfully LJ and I each had our own bathroom to run to. We're not feeling 100% yet, but watching TV has ceased to make me nauseous, so now we're lounging on the couches watching chick flicks. Here's the exciting part: before bed last night the only food I managed to keep down was half a cracker. Today, I've eaten 5 crackers already! Woo-hoo! We've got no idea where this nasty little virus came from though, we don't generally hang out with the same people and no one we know is sick like this. hmm. Here's to getting healthy!

Doing my civic duty

I suppose that I shall not be popular with many people when I openly admit that I didn't vote in the 2004 federal election. Why? I wasn't registered in Hamilton to vote, I didn't have the proper papers to help me vote, I didn't know where to vote, and I paid no attention to the campaign so I had no idea who to vote for. Excuses, excuses, excuses, I know. But those were my reasons.

But that was in the past. Today I plan to walk over to the polling booth a few blocks away and cast my first ever vote in a Canadian election. You should do the same.

Who's free Saturday night?

Hey all. So, I have a fantastic opportunity for you. I have one ticket left for a fabulous event on Saturday night. If you have ever gone on vacation and met up with Rippy the Gator, or longed to meet Jesus' brother Bob, or have felt that Carrot juice constitutes murder, or have sat down infront of your TV on Saturday nights thinking, "Me like hockey!", or have wondered who that last Seskatchewan pirate was, or even if you're simply proud to be Canadian, then this event is definitely for you.
For those of you who haven't picked up on the theme, there is an Arrogant Worms concert in Belleville on Saturday night, and I've had two people line up and subsequently back out of this particular ticket. (Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with the ticket, you won't be sitting behind a pole or anything.) Anywho, Rach, Meijer and I are heading there on late Saturday afternoon and will be coming back to Hammertown on Saturday night after the afore mentioned concert.
Do let me know asap if you'd like to join us!

I was all ready and set to post a shameless advertisement celebrating the new wing of my Alma Mater, but they went and hid all photos of the construction and completed new wing and library on me, so I shall reserve the post until such time as I have pictures to flaunt. I'll just say it's pretty, real pretty. Go visit campus and check it out! I'm jealous.
