I guess you could say that this will be a tribute post to one of the first friends I made in high school. You were amazing. You were smart and you were nothing short but great. You were the person who lent your shoulder for me to cry on when I had my first high school meltdown. Somewhere in between, we drifted, and through that short period of down time you had, I was hoping you’d come back and when you did, you were a force to be reckoned with. The strength you had, the determination you showed. I wish I had the chance to tell you that in person. Happy Birthday. R.I.P.

A nice ending to a horrible game. That pretty much sums up the Canucks last night against Toronto. On a brighter note, Kovalev got a goal upon his return to the Canadiens and a win. So much drama in that team. Oh, and I really enjoy Ovechkin! I really really do.

I’ve been feeling pretty down this weekend. Perhaps it’s that time again, but who knows!? I think it would hurt less if after 2 months I stopped caring, but I haven’t. And perhaps I’d be less confused if I knew you still did, but I don’t. Sometimes I secretly wish something really bad happens to me just to see what kind of reaction I will get (knock on wood). This is emo Carrie going back into the closet until next time. OK BYE!

I had a good day with the Sams yesterday + Phil + Matt. I even opened up a good avacado later that night! It was pretty exciting because I love avacadoes, but whenever I eat one, it seems to have gone bad and then I end up picking at it only to realize that it’s not salvageable. I also have a new hand gesture to add to my gesture bank which consists only of “can you dig it,” but will now be joined with “it blows my mind” courtesy of the Sams for the introduction! I would add “lawyered” in, but I feel that I can’t until I have watched “How I Met Your Mother” to fully grasp the concept of when to use such a gesture! Oh, and I also have Holts and Holts-Winters figured out for my statistics midterm on Thursday, so that’s one more thumbs up for yesterday.

Speaking of thumbs up! I do in fact have another hand gesture in my gesture bank! It came from “30 Rock” where Alec Baldwin (Jack) was trying to convince Tina Fey (Liz) to accompany him to a business retreat. Liz agrees on the condition that there is a spa and puts two fists up for Jack to wind-up the thumb! It was a good episode! Needless to say, this gesture does not work in all situations unless the other party knows what you are talking about and is willing to contribute to it.

Oh. And the Canucks game on Sunday was exciting! Good thing it was streaming online because I didn’t want to buy PPV! My two favourite teams in the whole wide world dualed out and my more favourite team won. An added bonus that Koivu scored because I really love him. We don’t play them often enough! I wish I was at the game! I want to go to Montreal one day and get myself a Koivu shirt of some sort! Today we play Calgary! I’m worried because I want to watch, but my studying have not been going very well for tomorrow’s in-class exam for music studies, evidently seen by my long post. I should bugger off and get focused now.

willieEDIT: Hats off to Kipper on a solid game! His netminding was great, but we came out on top. This is a picture worth posting! LMAO. Go Mitchell. You and your long stick. OK BYE!

I came across this video thanks to my brother. It’s a Christian Bale and Peter Griffin mash up. I found it quite funny. Not hilarious, but funny in a cute kind of way. I really love Peter. It’s supposed to be on the new Family Guy episode tomorrow (or later today since it’s past 12), but with the swearing beeped out.

OK BYE!

This is my input on the circulating survey-type thing that has been going around recently. It’s what I do when I don’t feel like studying for my statistics midterm and have no other alternatives. Good thing I have a reading break this week. Oh… and iTunes’ shuffle really does suck! OK BYE.

p10005841So, at the request from Matt, I’ve taken a picture of my purchases from the weekend. I wanted to save room, so I’ve combined the two items into one convenient image. What do you think? The shirt looks simple, except for the sleeves which are kind of retarded and has this string thing that ties in the back to bring them up. It’s quite complicated looking, but I like the graphics. There is Japanese writing on it and I don’t know what they mean.

Despite these happy purchases, the weekend ended on a sad note. I refuse to believe that Chris Brown would assault anyone, especially a girl. He is squeaky clean damn it! I don’t know what to think of him anymore. I still want him to come here for a concert, but it seems so wrong to want that. I hope there is a legit reason. The rumors about Rihanna giving him herpes would be a good enough reason for me. WTF?!

I also need to mention that I missed the Grammy’s, but watched two of the performances I had wanted to catch on YouTube. 1) Coldplay; 2) M.I.A., T.I., Lil Wayne, Kanye West, and Jay Z. They were awesome! The added Jay Z touch to Coldplay’s performance was pretty great. Good thing I watched it ASAP because most of the videos are now banned due to Grammy copyrights.

The Canucks are winning again. I am jumping into the air with joy and doing the Snoopy Dance. For those who don’t know the snoopy dance, please click and watch the Family Guy impersonation. Matt, I wish I knew how to insert an actual YouTube box thing like you.

Today is also a pretty great day. It’s been one year since I have been off that horrible, bitter, white piece of shit of a pill. I can’t believe that 15 years ago, I had to take 9 of them in one day. The last time a non-hospital doctor said it was OK to stop taking it for a year, my condition got worst. No wonder he said he was no longer going to be my doctor and sent me to Children’s. Son-of-a-bitch. But my blood results came back normal this time, so that is why it is worth sharing! I hope it never comes back. OK BYE.

CanadiensI wanted to comment on this jersey in my last post, but it slipped my mind. I actually don’t have much to say about it except that it’s a hideous jersey to wear. The Canucks are getting their groove back! Sundin looks comfortable, and we won 7-3 today! WTF. So exciting! GO KESLER and BURROWS. I then proceeded to watch Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice immediately after. I am excited that next Thursday will be a combined episode of these two shows!

I bought a shirt today and a jacket. I’m very happy about the purchases, but it makes me feel poor. There’s a lot of things that I want and I wish there wasn’t. I picked up The Fray’s new CD at HMV and put it back down. I’m going to wait it out! “Enough for Now” – go listen! I need a new shelf for all this fun crap

I played Jenga last weekend with my brother and cousins! We made it to height 32 and the record was 36! The only reason we didn’t go higher was because we ran out of legal moves that any of us were allowed to make and not because it fell. I have photo proof on my phone, but I don’t have the abilities to upload it onto the computer.

I have a bottle of vanilla extract sitting on my desk and I’m not sure if I should use it. I’m fucking pathetic. OK BYE.

Hi, I’m Carrie! You may remember me from such self help tapes as “Smoke Yourself Thin” and “Get Some Confidence, Stupid!” So I told myself, “Carrie, I think it’s finally time you learned how to read and write.” After countless hours of brain storming and careful deliberation on the most “hip” way to go about this reading and writing business, I copied and pasted some witty banter and disguised it as my own. Crap, I just gave away this secret.

I’m at school, on my break, once again. I went to see my professor for my music class after tutorial. He likes my topic about the autotune, lipsyncing and lack of singing talent. Hopefully research will treat me well once I get started on the 15 pages of rambling. I am still sad, but I think I’ve done a really good job at hiding it. Yesterday got the best of me though. Good thing it lasted only three hours and did not do any permanent damage on any of my relationships with the people I saw.

So, I was at the Knight bus stop today on my way to school Downtown, and this crazy lady holds up traffic as she turned the corner. It was Lisa, and she is definitely not crazy. Maybe sometimes! But I love her. She gave me a ride to school and we chatted. It was nice. I got to school 30 minutes earlier and there usually isn’t anyone in my class before mines, so I opened the door, but there were people inside. I shut the door. Opened it again. And then shut it again and went away to find a quiet spot to sit. True story. I hope they don’t think I’m weird. OK BYE.

(p.s. – I’m a little sad that One Tree Hill used The Fray’s new song in this week’s episode. It was nice to not hear it played everywhere, but I’m sure it’ll appear in places more often now. I must give them 2 eprops though because it was a good song for a good scene.)

Not one message, phone call, text, comment, e-mail, post or appearance. I don’t even know what to think anymore.

Thanks to those who came out on Saturday and brought food. It was the first time I blew out candles in like a really long time. My DVD collection has begun. It excites me. I have Seasons 1 and 2 of Grey’s Anatomy and Season 1 of Gossip Girl. I need to work on One Tree Hill and I totally need a job. I’m also quite excited to have Jenga. My years with Block has been no doubt great and brought much laughter when I first whipped it out of my cupboard to showcase, but now I have blocks that can, hopefully, slide out more easily. Maybe my brother will play with me this weekend.

I went to Kintaro for the first time yesterday with Danny and Pete (thanks guys)! The noodles were delicious, but I can’t say that it has lived up to all the hype that I’ve gotten from people. Please go Japan with me one day! I’ll dress tom boy so that you guys can still get chicks! I want to post pictures, but I’m on my laptop and I’m not sure how to do such advanced things on this new blog yet. Matt, please help me understand.

Oh. And I had such high hopes last night that the boys on the Canucks would turn it around with a win. Sadly, I was disappointed. OK BYE. (p.s. – happy birthday to Dak if you read this).

I’m at the Surrey campus right now (3 hour break). My iPod has been on shuffle lately and I can’t say that it plays me good songs 100%, but it has allowed me to discover the song “Talons” by Bloc Party and it’s pretty rockin’. I haven’t really given the album a good listen, but I think I will on my skytrain/bus ride home later.

There are two things that I don’t understand.
1. How come so many people don’t know how to take the bus? When you have a wet umbrella, you wrap it up and hold it low. You don’t loop it on your wrist and use that same hand to hold a pole next to someone’s head. And you don’t put the umbrella on empty seats! Seriously.

2. People in my Cultural Production of Popular Music class seem very snobby. It’s due to the fact that they are into the Indie bands and think that anyone else who aren’t is not knowledgeable. What’s up with that? Go Chris Brown.

Onto other stuff. I want an Obama t-shirt. I figured it would be a good purchase for historical reasons even though I’m not American. Urban Outfitters has a grey one that looks pretty sweet, but I also know that the store in Vancouver might not carry it. I also want to purchase the Obama book from Chapters. The novel looks really interesting and I want to read it. I wish we had some sort of history-changing event occuring in Canada.

I’ll leave on an emo note. I miss you! My lameness doesn’t get used up as much. I want to message you all the time. I want to say congratulations and that I hope you like this new place because it sounds pretty rad. OK BYE.
