Sweet Bejeebus!

That Pesky White Stuff

I could lis­ten to Cat Pow­er singing Lived In Bars all day and night. Of course I would have to stop once Troy is home from work. Don’t want to dri­ve the poor boy nuts just yet. ;)

Any­way, I sur­vived the annu­al fam­i­ly get-togeth­er #1 by eat­ing a lot of peanuts and car­rots, play­ing some pool rather bad­ly (didn’t score any points, but it killed the time), and help­ing my team of three win the 80s Triv­ial Pur­suit (most­ly to avoid the karaoke ses­sion). Sur­pris­ing­ly, I knew some stuff that the North Amer­i­cans didn’t, includ­ing the answer to the final ques­tion. Oh, and I got a pret­ty cool gift from the gift exchange thingy: a scrap­book­ing kit. Sweet bejee­bus! That’s some­thing that I could actu­al­ly use! The annu­al fam­i­ly get-togeth­er #2 is next week­end. We’ll see if I sur­vive that one.

Oooh, oooh, and some­thing excit­ing hap­pened last night. We bought the Canon Dig­i­tal Rebel XTi a.k.a. the Canon EOS 400D online! It was on sale at Future Shop — almost $100 off the reg­u­lar price — so we thought we’d bite the bul­let and buy it even though we couldn’t afford to buy a big mem­o­ry card and a spare bat­tery just yet. The cam­era is sup­posed to arrive in the mail on Wednes­day. I can’t wait! I’m gid­dy with antic­i­pa­tion. Until we can afford a big­ger mem­o­ry card, I guess I’ll have to make do with Troy’s 128MB CF card and just take a few pic­tures at a time with the cam­era. :)

To make things even bet­ter, we’ve brought home some turkey left­over from the get-togeth­er. I’m def­i­nite­ly mak­ing some deep-fried turkey soup with ver­mi­cel­li for lunch AND sup­per today! Mmm, deep-fried turkey… Life is good.

  1. Enjoy your new toy! Being a con­stant read­er of your blog I know how much you want­ed it. And come Wednes­day you’ll have it. The excite­ment will sure­ly reach unimag­in­able lev­els in Fir­da and Troy’s house. :-) And us, the read­ers will sure get some gor­geous pho­tos to look at. It’s a win — win sit­u­a­tion. :-)

  2. Fab­u­lous!
    Great blog Fri­da, I real­ly like your style and sense of humour. I spent 9 months in Ontario so your pics make me feel a lit­tle home­sick. I am man­ag­ing a blog at the moment that you might find a lit­tle quirky and well dif­fer­ent, maybe you could vis­it some time at fullmonto.com. We have an out­back aus­tralian rug­by league team attempt­ing to do a beef­cake cal­en­dar for brain injury (one of thi­er team mates aquired a brain injury). Any­way it’s a great sto­ry (I believe) and I’m going to keep read­ing your blog.

  3. HI Fir­da!
    Just occured to me that you would be real­ly good at digi-scrap­ping. You have love­ly pho­tographs as well as a good eye for design.
