Waiting to hear back on my unemployment claim... [31 Aug 2010|03:59pm]
 Dear Service Canada,

I have been waiting more than six weeks for you to respond to my claim. I have gone into your office every week for the past three weeks, to be told, "Oh, come back next week."

Here's a thought. Hire more people to look at claims. More people with jobs = less claims to answer. Less claims = shorter wait time for poor students. 

Two birds, one stone. Sound good? K, thanks.

Posting from work.. V2 [21 Nov 2009|06:51pm]
[ mood | Annoyed ]

I'm at work right now, and there are five boys sitting within 10 feet of me. If I hear the term, "Bonerjamz," one more time, I am going to snap.

I feel worse for the 50 year old lady down the row, though.

[ mood | amused ]

 My Nanny messaged me again on MSN.

   Dorothy    says:
 HI  BECCA  its  Nanny  here  WHAT  R  U  DOING
Becca says:
 Hi Nanny. I got home from work!
 How are you?
   Dorothy    says:
Becca says:
 Ah, I don't think I'll be able to come for a visit today. I am exhausted, and the hockey game is on!
 Are you watching hockey?
   Dorothy    says:
  n o  i  do  not  iwatch  the  stupid  game  shows  when  you  have  some  free  time  we  must  get  together  4  something  to  eat  
Becca says:
 Yeah. I got an email from you the other day! I didn't have time to write back since I was working.
 I'll give you a call sometime this week, and maybe we could go for dinner.   
   Dorothy    says:
 nanny  will  sign  off  &  let  u  watch  the  game  bye

You can't see it now, but this conversation was full of emoticons and smileys.

My Nanny rules.

Childhood? [30 Sep 2008|09:35pm]
[ mood | busy ]

I'm doing a major overhaul of my room, which will eventually consist of painting and putting in hardwood floor. This means I'm packing a lot of stuff away/tossing stuff out.

I'm currently packing away Beanie Babies.

They just seem to look up at you, as if to say, "Why? Don't you love us anymore?"

Am I crazy?

It's just not fair [26 Sep 2008|03:16am]
[ mood | Cozy ]

I absolutely hate making my bed.

Sleeping in a made up bed is very wonderful, but it takes way too much effort.

It will also get messy the next day though, so it kind of defeats the purpose of putting effort into it.

I could just not make my bed and go to sleep anyhow.

It's a vicious cycle.

I explained this to a friend of mine.  He had a different view on it:

mATT (at school) says:
Make that shit in the morning
Becca says:
It's a vicious cycle
mATT (at school) says:
Then you come home to a wonderful bed
mATT (at school) says:
but yes; it is vicious
Becca says:
but.. it'll get messy 
mATT (at school) says:
Yeah but you'll eventually die but that doesn't mean you shouldn't live

Needless to say, I am posting this from a nice neat bed. Maybe I'll even make my bed in the morning too.
Also, the new Smothered in Hugs album is fantastic. Here's a clip! http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=5NX2c4vsfKU

Om nom nom [08 Sep 2008|08:55pm]
[ mood | full ]

I just made myself a bagel sammich.

This sammich consisted of a bagel cut in half, a fried egg, two strips of leftover bacon, a cheese slice and mayo. Oh my, it was good.

I should've taken pictures.

Here's where you folks come in. Anyone have simple recipes for quick, easy and filling, but also tasty meals? Especially for breakfast. I'm always in a rush out the door, so something easy to make would be ideal!

Suggestions! Yes please!

Oh, and six days until Bloc Party. Five days until Windom Earle + Halifax. Eee!

Come On! Feel the Illinoise! [18 Apr 2008|10:01pm]
[ mood | Toothachey ]

Oh, hi.

It's always a while between updates, but it's not like I have anything too exciting to say, I suppose.

School has finally ended. The last month or so was just ridiculously stressful. I got through it, hopefully without failing anything. I didn't do so well on my bio paper, nor my english one. I'm not so good at the whole research paper business. I guess I had better learn though, otherwise I'm in trouble.
The school year was so busy. I met tons of neat people and attended a lot of great shows. That's about it really. I finally quit Dairy Queen. I worked there for four years. It was kind of sad when I was cleaning out my locker. I really didn't mind working there, even after four years. I got a new job at Online Support, which I started training for a few days ago. It seems like it'll be a really neat place to work. I love talking to people so I think It'll be ideal for me. I guess we'll see how that goes. Broken iPod? I'm yer laaaaady.

Hmm. So Summer break has started. I'm working full time, and am going to Ottawa on a youth sport conference mid-may. It's only for a few days, but it'll be a fun time, for sure. I also plan on doing the red island relay at the end of May. Those are my biggest plans. It would be super neat to hit up the Evolve festival in Antigonish. It seems like it would be such a blaaaast. I'm just excited to go camping, to the beach, and to slather the sunscreen on like it's going out of style.

I've been listening to a lot of Feist lately. She'll be playing in Charlottetown in November. Tickets are like sixty bucks buuuut I think It would be worth it. Also been listening to The Death Set and Wintersleep since last November. It rules.
And now, I leave you with this.

STICKY FEET STICKY FEET [21 Feb 2008|12:48am]
[ mood | amused ]

        My cat curled up beside me, and I noticed she had a little pink happy face sticker stuck to the bottom of one of her back feet.

I tried to take it off, and she ran away. She keeps coming back to lay down beside me though, so every time she lays down, I try and peel it off again (and she runs again). I'm just cracking up over it.

       This is the offending sticker:

Cats are awesome. I certainly hope everyone else appreciates them as much as I do.

In other news, I didn't think the eclipse was all that great. Just Sayin'

Fortune Cookies and Center Justification! [16 Dec 2007|06:20am]
[ mood | awake ]

So I bought a bag of fortune cookies on Thursday from the Bulk Barn. I must say, adding "in bed" to the end of fortunes never ceases to amuse me. Here's a few I've gotten this weekend.

"Your hard work will soon pay off in bed."
"You will soon discover something wonderful about yourself in bed."
"You are compassionate and understanding in bed."
"You will be doing something new at work in bed"

And my personal favorite

"You can't ride in all directions at once in bed."

I actually got that last one twice. Fortune cookies are good times. Egg rolls would be really good right about now. 6:30am eggrolls? Yes plz.
I make the worst and most pointless posts ever.

Why am I still up?

 I have been absolutely CRACKING UP at this for a good ten or fifteen minutes now.

My sides hurt and my eyes are watering.

Adventures in Belfast. [19 Nov 2007|12:53am]
[ mood | pensive ]

On Saturday, I was in Belfast at the rink waiting around until my game started. There were a couple kids who were maybe 5 or 6, and they had PEI dirt shirts on that went to their knees, and these baggy windpants. They were trying to throw a hacky sack past each other just as a game. I was watching for a second, and their dad saw me and looked at my coat. The sleeve says goalie on it, so he was like"You're a goalie! Hey guys, she's a real goalie! maybe she'll play with you guys!".
It was a pretty odd, but I couldn't just say no to these kids. (They both had mushroom cuts. They were like Dennis the Menaces) So i played hacky sack goalieing for awhile with them, but I had to go warm up. Before I left, the dad was like "Oh wait! Lets get a picture! What's your name?" and I was like, "uhh.. Becca". So I kneeled down and these two kids were just squeezing me in a hug, and the dad took a couple pictures. They were from Halifax.

It was so weird.

I wish I had someone to rub my back.

Survery at the TOP? Random. Oh yes.

Things are going well. Work is alright now. I got paid today. almost 500 dollars for 7 days. It`s pretty decent

Last weekend was a blast. Friday we went to St Dominque which is a road and there`s been concerts going on there. Saturday we went to Village Des Vacances which was a huge waterpark. It was such a blast. I loved it. That evening, we went into old quebec and went onto a ghost tour. It was really quite fun. the stories were creepy. 
The rest of the night consisted of walking around old quebec, up a very long road, to get to the bus so we could eat dinner. Around 1am, we finally stopped at macdonalds. It had been a long while since I last ate macdonalds.I was starving though.

We stayed at this gross ass dorm at Laval for the night and 4 of us piled into Hailey`s one person room which was very squooshed. an interesting night for sure. 

I`ve been meaning to post pictures but every time i do, the computer starts freezing up half way though. Pictures shall be posted sometime in the near future.

Picture Post! [04 Jul 2006|05:17pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Wow, It is ever so hot outside. I have to eat dinner soon but just a quick update and maybe some pictures.

-I`m learning to like my job. it`s getting easier to understand the little kids. a bunch of them kept colouring sheets and giving them to me. I have about 9 of them on my desk right now.
-I love my neighborhood. It`s so cozy. Kylea and I went for a walk last night and saw some sketchy people, some soccer, some gargoyles and some trains. A fun evening indeed
-My family is still great and I have no trouble understanding them. I`m having a blast here.
And now, pictures!

I have to go eat but there shall be more pictures to come!

Ttyl :)

Finally got to Jonquiere and I absolutely love it. My family is great. I have two siblings who are 12 and 17, which is pretty decent. The house is pretty nice. I don`t have to share a room which is good, haha. I also have internet access and a pool, so i`m pretty content.

The train ride here was... long haha. I barely slept any of it but I met some wicked people from PEI and around the maritimes. After getting off the train this morning  around 6, it ended up that we had to take a school bus for another like 4 hours. ergh. I curled up in my sleeping bag and layed on the seat most of the time.

I start work Monday, which`ll go alright I hope. I don`t really have a problem understanding my family but little french kids scream and speak fast. I guess it`ll be interesting.

I suppose i`ll be off. If I`m allowed putting my camera software on the computer, I shall be posting some pictures over the next 6 weeks. :) 

Au Revoir!!!
