Dec 20, the Secret Santa Potluck

So for the day of the par-tay…

The day started with a gym run.? Actually it started with me rushing to the UofT bookstore to get Krissy her giftcard. Isn’t it awesome to get something that you want?? I headed over and met Edward, who I
haven’t gymmed with in awhile.? Tried this insane 5 execise circuit
program that goes bench-squat-pullups-reverse crunch-crunch.? I
actually FORGOT that you could bench with freeweights…? I’ll add that
to my list of random gym exercises.

The orginal plan for today was to be out of the gym latest 1:30.? First thing, we started at 1:30, so I ended up getting out at about 2:45.? Since the party was supposed to start at 5pm, it gave me very VERY little time to prepare.

I rushed over to the college streetcar stop and just missed a car.? At the time I thought nothing of it, but I ended up waiting 45 minutes, then giving up and walking to the subway station.? Winter weather does wonders to hinder the public transit.? I think I’ll take subway for the rest of the break…

I ended up waiting in Riverdale library to get picked up so we could go food-shopping.? I didn’t realized that I actually had something on hold there.? I placed a hold a few days for the novel version of Gossip Girl (I know, I know… I’m such a girl), and I took out a copy of The Rape of Nanking from the history section. I also paid off my library debt.? It’s a whole 30 cents/day late.? Holy crap… it used to be 5 cents I think.

Bought stuff to eat.? Yeah.? I’ll get to that later.

Got home around 6:15.? It was a good thing that tardiness runs in my group of people, otherwise I would have been 1h15m late for my own party.? Nobody showed up for another 30 minutes, thank god.

So this is what people brought (In order of impact.? Meaning off the top of my head):

  1. Veggie Platter + Fruit – Me!
  2. Chocolate Fountain + booze – Ricky
  3. Cha Shao and Sweet/Sour Pork + booze – Anthony
  4. Chips/Forks – Bill
  5. Cheesecakes + booze + pie?- Horacio
  6. Squid/Fishball/Beefball/Shrimp/Smoked Salmon on cucumber platter – Fiona.? We definatley have to get more girls that know how to cook (like this) to come next time lol.
  7. Dumplings – Alicia
  8. Ordered Pizza + booze – Eric
  9. Meat lasanga without meat – Kevin
  10. Garlic Bread + booze + pie? – Luke
  11. Drinks – John
  12. Cake – Krissy
  13. Wings – George

I hope I’m not forgetting anything…? Next time I do this, I should really make people who need to cook things come EARLIER.? The food was staggered all over the place.? A good time to come would have been 8:30, when pretty much all the food was there.

A bunch of other people ended up stopping by.? They didn’t bring food.? THANK GOD THEY DIDNT BRING FOOD.? It was already enough.

Giving out gifts in Secret Santa can be fun.? I think I should have lay down the rules a little bit more clear.? I really liked the way they did it in MSE, so I wanted to do it the same way.? Basically you aren’t EVER supposed to know who the giver is.? When it comes time to give out gifts, an annoucer gives the gift out.? I would have dressed up in a Santa suit too, but I: don’t have one, don’t have that kinda of weight, and am not old and white.? I think I’d make a better elf.

I tried making a big bottle of whiskey sour like I did last time.? I can’t actually… taste whiskey because I’ve drank it so much so I don’t really know what people like.? I guess I have my Niagra falls car-drink though =P.

Ricky made Sex on the Beach which people liked.? Jeff turned more red than I did.? Faster too.? He can now be the designated drunk.

Overall it was a fun, albiet a tame night.? I’d prefer if I didn’t have to carry people around, and/or wash vomit off my (toilet seat/kitchen floor/bed/shoes/pants/face).

After everybody left, Ricky, Stacy and I continued to clean up and rewarded ourselfs with Irish Carbombs.? 6 Carbombs each.? Afterparties are awesome.? I apparently went on facebook after they left and wrote stuff on peoples walls.? I also apparently texted some friends at 5am on my cellphone.? I don’t really remember doing those things… I DO remember putting on Sweedney Todd before lying in bed, with the intention of watching it until I fell asleep.? What actually happened is I didn’t even make it past the opening credits.

Winter Blog

I’m writing this for the winter break just so I can keep track of where all my time went.
Today was the first day in awhile that I woke up and thought to myself “What should I do today?”.? There is no longer any material to catch up to, no test lingering over my head, no last minute cramming.? I got up and … didn’t need to do anything.? I didn’t even need to get up.? It’s such a quick mentality change in such a short period of time.? Yesterday was the last exam, today is the start of the winter break.

I lied.? I did know what I had to do today.? I needed to buy a gift for the secret santa tomorrow, and I wanted to prepare to go out tonight with some university friends.? Unfortunately when I woke up today, I looked out the window and witnessed the snowstorm that would ruin those plans.? Nonetheless, I set out for my outing that I hope will become the structure that will keep me sane during this taskless winter break.

The streetcar today was predictably slow.? I got some good reading done, I’ll probably finish MICROSERFS in a few more of those sessions.

I usually call people when I’m on the streetcar.? It helps me pass the time, stay awake and socialize.? I realized this term that talking on the phone is definately one of the better ways to maintain relationships.? Strangely I have become a little bored of it, and reading has a higher priority.? I’m continuing to read Microserfs, but I don’t have another book lined up.? Maybe I could try reading the lord of the rings set again.? It’s hard to picture in a book after you have seen the movie though.

I wanted to get John a undead warlock WOW action figure for a secret santa gift, but they were out!? I had to settle for a troll shaman, which looks pretty badass.

Hit the gym.? Yeahhhh.? Gymming is fun.

Got a haircut after that.? I like it this time.? Always remember them to cut the sides short, leave the top the same length, but thin it out a little.? Yeah.? Long bangs with long spikes, the possibilities are endless!

“You are looking well, Margret”

“You are welcome to look, your highness”? < man I love medieval pickup lines.? I'm watching Ever After rigth now, the prince wears a codpiece hahhaha.? But he fights Artemis style!? Longsword and dagger! ?Watched Hancock.? Thought it was okay.? I wish it was longer, there was no backstory! So instead of clubbing it up tonight I decided to get enough manpower to roll a giant snowball.? Unforunately, the 2 ft of snow that came down today was all packing snow.? The end result was five 21 year old men playing in the snow in Jimmie Simpson playground.? Ryan said that I never grew up.? Ended up ordering pizza at my house. Productive day I say.? Didn't sit around playing games.? Excercised, got out of the house, tried to do something creative (and failed), read, and played some music.? This is how life should be.
