Yeah I haven't blogged all week, can ya tell? Hmmm what should I blog about today? Nothing interesting comes to mind. If you have any suggestions let me know. *le sigh* Oh wait, I tried something interesting today. I tried to touch my toes today. When I was little I could just bend down and reach my toes easily (due to freakishly long arms). Today I tried and failed. I am aging miserably. The whole aging thing made me crave potato salad so I went to Zehrs this evening and waited in line for 10 minutes. Saw the cute Zehrs lady that comes to my shop for coffee. Ended up not buying salad, but a huge box full of "home made" oatmeal cookies.
I am going to TO tomorrow. Yippee Yippe woot woot (shut up, you are just jealous that you didn't say that yourself). I
am looking forward to it. Fun times with Steph, Isaak, Taylor and I. The agenda hasn't been given to me, but I will be sure to inform you of what happens. Whenever I think of TO I remember that I had this girl Mel convinced for a whole year that there is this group/cult called the Mole People, and they live underground (like not in the subways) and they have their own government and stuff like that. She was completely convinced. I almost convinced myself, however I do remember hearing about people who live underground? ...ok, I had better stop that. Insanity is the next phase.
I've been eating a lot lately. This is completely out of character for me. The crappy thing is, when I decided I wanted to get better, I also decided that carbohydrates taste good. This is not good, not good at all. I need to go for a jog. Maybe I will jog to Toronto tomorrow night. I need the exercise.
Anyways, Carrie, there is your blog. I have been up to my elbows in coffee and delicious cookies for the past week. Enjoying it, of course. But busy and tired. Oh, something weird. I try to amuse myself at work, talk and joke around with the Zehrs workers and you know...Just be crazy. Anyways there is this cute Zehrs lady that I am friends with. I don't know her name, she doesn't know mine. We are going to play the name guessing game tomorrow. What names do you think she'll come up with for me, dude? I know, what a stupid game, but please...I have to keep myself entertained.

Oh, here is fun stuff...boring I know.

If I Were The "It" Dude
I think I would consider myself a believer in capitalism. I say this in terms of cows. Lets say I have two cows. I sell one and buy a bull. Think of all the possibilities. Bliss I tell you, bliss. I don't think I could go wrong, unless either of the two were infertile, or prefered cows of the same sex. In that case I might become communist and have my neighbours help me kill the bull and share the meat around. They could also help me milk the cow, we would share the milk, of course. Its a really good thing I am not full fledged femininst. Other wise my two cows would marry each other and...well...possibly become bra burners and go on man hating hunts. This reminds me of my Susan B. Anthony and Simone de Beauvoir studying days. I feel like reading some Marx now, might give me some ideas if my capitalistic approach goes belly up and I take to communism.
