I don't understand! The pencils are back!

If I don't feed you, I don't love you

I was all happy with this template because it had these little pencils that let me edit my posts when I spotted a typo without having to leave the blog and go into edit mode. Except those pencils are gone today. Where are my pencils!?! I'm sure that it's something I've done or haven't done but I can't figure it out right now and am mightily annoyed. I'm still happy with this template though; it's nice and simple. I think I'm coming back to blue after my love affair with red.

I baked a cake today, to take to someone whose sister had passed away. It's what my people do: some dies, you bake; someone gets engaged, you make preserves, someone's born, why that merits the preperation of an entire meal! In my passive agressive way, I used to make make food and then give it to everyone except the person I didn't like. Yes, yes, I'm petty. We've been over that. But I digress. The point of this was today's cake, which was sliced up and dished out then and there. And someone asked me if I took orders. I'm not even sure if she was serious. I think way back when I wrote about how my mother wanted me to just stay at home and maybe take orders for cakes and things. Well, it looks like that might be working out for her. And I don't think I'm happy about it.

Lion's teeth

Places I'd like to visit (ripping off Yaser here). I've got a top twenty here, randomly ordered (well, they're broken into regions). I want to go to some of these places for the most random reasons like grade school projects, or in jokes which no longer have any relevance in my life.




China/Hong Kong

New Zealand
Papua New Guinea



A top five if I really had to commit?

1) Antarctica
2) Morocco
3) Italy
4) China/Hong Kong
5) Suriname

Anyone who knows me knows I hate the cold. More than anything. Despite that I'm obsessed with going to Antarctica. Call it a childhood dream I want to fulfill despite knowing better.

Beaver tails

Life being what it is, here's a list of somethings I want to do while I live in Canada:

Toronto stuff:

1) Watch a film at the TIFF

2) Go to a fashion week show

3) Freeze my ass off at Nathan Phillips on New Year's Eve

4) Watch fireworks down at the lake on Canada day

Canada stuff:

1) Visit all the provinces and at least one of the territories

2) See the Northern Lights

3) Camp at Algonquin

4) Go fishing

I figure the Toronto stuff should be pretty doable with the likely exception of the fireworks. Canada Day usually means some family thing which may or may not be fun. The Canada stuff is expensive and therefore much more difficult to pull off. I might go camping in Algonquin this summer though. The difficulty is, my parents wouldn't let me go if there were boys because it would be improper. They would also not let me go WITHOUT boys because that would be unsafe- we need big strong men to keep us safe. Ick. Man, for the first time in my life I wish I had a brother. Or at least male cousins who lived in the same country.
