Got a house!

When I was reading through the lease (all million pages of it) I found a clause about putting blinds in the house. I asked about it, and now we'll have white venetian blinds throughout. :D YAY for not having to pay for blinds.

I don't have any pictures of the house, but listen to this. There are four *real* rooms, and a *giant* master, with a walk in closet and a bathroom. I think either Annmarie or I will take that, since I could set up my sewing machine in there, which would be fun. And another 50$ a month isn't that bad. These rooms are all upstairs. Downstairs, we have *three*!!!!!! rooms that have no specific function. (well, a dining room, a living room, and a room with a fireplace.) We were joking that one could be the Wii room, one could be the PS2 room (we have four) and one could be the xbox room, since Dusty got a 360 and doesn't want his old one any more. AAAAAAND we have enough space in the kitchen for a kitchen table!

AND a back yard! With a deck!

And a front yard! With a porch!!!

How sweet is this, it is *exactly* what I wanted, a house. A house, a house, a house. Not some place with each room converted into a bedroom.

We might be getting some furniture from a friend's parent's house. :D Thank you, yes, thanks to you!!

And! The people who moved out didn't take all of their crap, so we now also have a TV stand, some coffee tables, two desks, a couple of mirrors, maybe a light. We'll see what's left in the GARAGE on the property. That's right, we have a garage too.

Did I mention how excited I was?

I'm going to call some moving companies at lunch, see if I can get some space on a truck from st. catharines to oakville for the 28th, and how much it'd cost. I'd better get the exact address!

And... that was my weekend. Also ate some delicious Lourice's, and played some Legend of Zelda, Twilight princess on sajex's Wii, which was SUPER FUN. Showed Dr. Horrible to marii_chan and celty, who hadn't seen it yet. They both really enjoyed it. Watched two episodes of this weird film noir sorta police story with supernatural bad guys with marii_chan, as well as the first episode of this Count of Monty Cristo anime, both of which I really enjoyed. Got caught in a TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR on our way from looking at the house, so we had a pitstop at Dan's and petted the really nice cat, Charlie. He's (she's?) a beautiful Himalayan cat, I think my mom would have loved her. She's a cat person, y'see. Very affectionate, but wanting to play. I had nothing to playwith, so I got bitten. :( Oh well.

Made chocolate chip cookies, and ate them while we watched Dr. Horrible.

Woken up at one Am last night by a fire alarm. Someone was cooking. *angry face!!!!* it was so loud. SO LOUD. Then we had to wait half an hour for the fire department to show up, so they could check the place over and then turn off the alarm. They'd better not charge US, that's all I have to say. We were all asleep when it happened.

Got one side of my lapels done, now I just need to make the other side work.



Something else we owe to the Romans: hopscotch. huh.

Also how to play seven up.

Some websites with handclapping songs and other kinds of songs! How many of these do I know? So many. I want to sing these... *sniff* I miss my sisters.

Songs, all different kinds. I wonder if they know about the extra verse to 'Rose'? The harmony to 'my eyes are dim'? OH MAN I remember the pyjama song!! AAH, I remember 'waddly-aka', only I sang it 'waddly-acha'. Doodly doo. Doodly doo. AND they have the words to Cici my playmate, though not the enemy version. Their version of Stella is almost the same as the one I sing, only it was 'cheego', and instead of 'say' it was 'val', for some obscure reason.

Have I mentioned how much I love to sing? I think that's what I miss most about Girl Guides, are the songs.

Handclap games, I didn't recognise any. New ones to learn, I guess! This is for you, fly_girl. Self defence against that 'this that' game.

(Rose Red, one of my favourite songs:
Rose, Rose, Rose Red.
Will I ever see thee wed?
I shall marry at thy will, sire
At thy-y will.

Ding do-ong, ding dong.
Wedding bells on an April morn'.
Carve your name on a moss covered stone
On a moss covered stone.)


lol @ blake's 7. They just found a 'galaxy class' vessel. And as everyone konws, the biggest and the best 'galaxy class' ship is the Enterprise. Did TNG snitch that from Blake's 7, perhaps as an homage?


This was so stupid, I had to click it. It has been taunting me all day. Why should he care? Is there a reason? "Woody Allen disinterested in Cruz-Johansson lesbian kiss". It was, as expected, stupid. e_____e

XD marii_chan and I will TOTALLY burst into song. pirate_squid might know it. celty most assuredly won't.

(that's who I'm rooming with, by the way. Don't want to say their real names online.

Yes, you can visit. Bring food! *dances*

Okay not so much why would Woody Allen care but why is Cruz so bothered by him not caring? And plus it wasn't as if they were just making out for fun, it was part of a movie. I lawled at that; where do you find these things.

The saddest part? It's one of the four 'news' stories shown in the home part of hotmail, and on that stupid little popup you get when you sign into MSN messenger.

Who chooses these stories?

That song page rocks =D See, Joe DOES have a dog! Good for him!

Those songs made me think of two of my fav girl guide songs missing from the list.

Shaving cream http://www.guntheranderson.com/v/data/shavingc.htm


Titanic!.... wow there are a million different versions of this and some are very politically interesting O.o


I can't find the version we sang though. I think it was a little more... light hearted.

Re: Dude!
You'll have to teach me the shaving cream song, I don't know that one at all. And I've sang the titanic one, but never all the way through... Or I've heard it, maybe?

HOORAY!!! Will you still be living there when we come out for your convocation?
Aug. 21st, 2008 02:40 pm (UTC)
... Actually, that's a good question. I might not even be in the area! crap, I forgot how much after school the convocation is. If I am, you guys can totally camp out in my room and one of the living rooms. :D
