Counting down the minutes until Saigon!!

The weekend was pretty fun!!! In fact, it feels like it was a long time ago and I hardly remember what happened. Hmmm. Let's see. On Friday, me and James did.... something...... and it lasted until about 10 (but I can't remember what it was to save my life)..... oh my gosh, why can't I remember. This is so bad!....NATTIE JUST REMINDED ME! We watched the hockey game! Well, Jordan watched and I slept. It was good though! Well, anyways, when we were done whatever it was that we had done, we called Nattie and saw a movie with her!!! We just rented one, but it was good. We rented..... oh yeah, we rented The Believer. It was pretty darn good but a little confusing. It's about this Jewish Anti-semite (yes, you read that right), played by Ryan Gosling (who does a phenomenal job of it). Anyways, the movie is pretty long but very good and I liked it, but I think it would be a good one to see again to see if I actually get it. I really liked the parts that they show of him as a kid in Hebrew school, arguing with his teacher and his friend(?) Avi. I think because the kid makes me think of my dad (not because my dad is an anti-semite). I just imagine that that's what he was like when he went to parochial school. One time, he punched his teacher in the face because the teacher had ripped my dad's shirt (I imagine grabbing him out of his chair for misbehaving) and he knew he would be in trouble when he got home. Did he punch the teacher in the face or kick him in the nuts? I do not remember exactly now, but I think it was a groin kick. Anyways, it's a funnie story. My dad was a real badass in his childhood for sure.

Then, on Saturday, we went on a pub crawl with Nate, Skuce, Felipe, Jason, Jackie, Ian, the Dans, and some other people that I had never met before. Also, I finally got to meet Miguel! It was pretty exciting, because I've heard stories about him and I knew he existed but I had never met him, so that was definitely fun and exciting!!!! The pub crawl was pretty fun for a while, but it's not really mine and Jordan's scene. Plus, clubs are more fun for single people we think. I was also feeling pretty darn sick so we decided we should bail. Anyways, we called Nattie again and grabbed a quick bite to eat and then saw another movie! We went to The Heartbreak Kid, with Ben and Jerry Stiller. It was sooooo funnie! I thought so anyways, I'm not 100% sure Nattie thought it was as funny as I did, but there was a guy in front of us who must have thought it was GREAT!!! He kept clapping, and at one point he actually stood up out of his chair and clapped! It was half the fun just to watch him!!! Anyways, it was a very good movie! I'm not 100% sure I'd buy it, but it would be really nice if it were out on DVD for Christmas, then it could be my family's Christmas movie, I just don't see it happening. I'm sure we'll find something though...

Anyways, after the movie, we all just went home (well, sort of, I ended up sleeping over at James's)... and me and James were going to watch SNL but we just fell asleep!!! It was a long and exhausting day!!!

Then, on Sunday... me and James hung out for a while, had lunch with Nattie at Burger Inn, which was highly delicious! Then we played some Mario Party 8 and then Jord had to go get Nate from work! So, me and Nattie played a little Nancy Drew and then I went home for dinner. Then, after dinner, I went back over and hung out with Nattie and Mattie!!! It was exciting that Matt was back from his cruise, and I learned that he wants to move to the Caymans and become a pirate! I think this is a fine plan, because if Matt moves, Nattie will probably have to and if Nattie does, I may as well! Then Jordan could come too and we could all live in the Caymans! Tee hee, I don't think I would really want to live there, but it's a nice thought!!! We watched Heartland, Nattie's favourite new show and a couple of episodes of The Office from season 3. It was really fun!

Not too too much else to report! Nicole came yesterday for tutoring and she stayed for 2 hours. It was really good. Right now I'm waiting for my math lab to start and I am NOT excited for it! Math lab is always such a royal pain because it's soooo boring!!! We have computers, but we can't really go on them and have fun because it's loud and disruptive. Anyways, I also found out when my only final this semester is! It's on Dec. 13, so after that I will be able to work more hours and get lots of moneys!!! Tee hee, definitely not lots! But still, it will be nice to work a little extra and pick up a little extra cash. I'm a little excited for Christmas now. I bought a present for someone yesterday and that made me a little excited. Apparently, this lady that Nattie works with already has her Christmas tree out though. Maybe not up, Nattie couldn't remember, but it should still be in the basement!!! I absolutely draw the line at Halloween!!! You CANNOT have your tree out of your basement before Halloween!!!! It's just not allowed! I seriously don't get why anyone would want to look at that darn thing for more than, like, 2 weeks!!!! Whatevs though. I guess if you're not really a grinch like me you would want to. I just don't get it!!!

Oh, yeah, Judge Judy yesterday! It was so crazy, this woman was suing this other woman (the wife of a guy she was seeing) because the wife had beat up the mistress. It was a pretty good case, but the wife had a countersuit for emotional distress or whatever. So, Judge Judy found in the mistress's favour on the claim, for her medical bills, etc ($4000!!!!) and then they got to the counterclaim and she granted the wife the same amount for "alienation of affection"... I also saw this on Dr. Phil the other week, where if someone cheats with your spouse, they can be held liable for it! The lady on Dr. Phil had to cough up $50,000 for it!!!! I think that's the worst, craziest law ever! It's the husband's fault, NOT THE MISTRESS'S!!!! Anyways, I was blown away.

And, finally... my title.... me and Nattie go to Saigon Y2K, a really delicious Vietnamese restaurant almost every Thursday. Last week, we went to Swiss Chalet instead, and while it was delicious, it leaves a great hole in my heart where Saigon usually goes! So I'm extra excited for Thursday! And I was really hungry yesterday and it got me thinking about it! I even tried to find a picture on the internet so I could post it here, but alas, no such luck. Only 2 days, 8 hours and 43 minutes until Saigon time!!!! (thank you, cell phone countdown!)

Haha, I love how you count down absolutely everything on your cell phone!

It was a pretty good weekend! I had fun. Cayman would be fun to visit, but I'm not sure I want to be a perma vacationer. We should just all go on vacation there.

Very much agreed. I don't think I'd be a very good perma-vacationer. I'm not good with heat that much.
