Last night I had a great time at name that tune as usual. Our team only got third. It was rigged though... we definitely should have gotten first (or tied for first). I think we win too often though so they have to space out us winning. It was a good time as usual though so I'm not complaining about being third.. too much.

Today is a beautiful day so I'm heading out with a friend to a park for some tanning and male watching. Maybe I'll have some pictures to share when I get home.

For the first time ever I called 911. Leaving the bar there was a guy that was so drunk he couldn't even stand properly. We watched him get into his car to drive. I said fuck that and called the cops. I really hope they got him.

I don't have a whole lot to say today. My brain is foggy from the late night (got to bed at about 4am). Hopefully I'll have more to add later.

Here are the answers to the questions Larry asked. There is a tag going around that you answer someones five questions and then you ask if anyone wants to be interviewed. You ask whoever says they want to be interviewed five questions. They answer the questions on their blog and thus the game goes on and on. Well, I'm not actually playing the game. I just wanted to be interviewed. Larry was nice enough to interview me knowing I wouldn't continue the game.

1. Given the oportunity, what is the one thing you would change about your life? Why?
I would have done better in school. When I went to class and paid attention I did really well. I decided not to go to class more times than I went so I didn't do good. I did just good enough to pass.
2. Is there such a thing as fate?
I do believe in fate.
3. How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?
I'm not really sure. I will have to get a Tootsie Pop to find out. I would guess not that many since I mostly suck on it rather than lick.
4. What is the proudest moment of your life, so far?
I think the proudest moment was when I was asked to be my nieces Godmother. That my Brother and Sister in law would put so much trust in me.
5. If you could compare yourself to any one cartoon character, who would it be? Compare please.
This is going to be a hard one... I will answer it but need more time to think about it.

I've been debating and thinking about this post for a little while now. How to word it in a way it makes sense. How to word it in a way it isn't insulting. I am posting about religion. Religion can be such a debatable, argumentative and touchy subject. I am not sure how to get my opinion across in a way that isn't insulting. Especially since I really want to rant about it.

I don't believe in an organized religion. I believe in being the best I can be. I don't believe I have to go to church to show I believe in god. I feel it is insulting for people to imply that unless I believe in the religion they do that I might go to hell or that I'm not as good a person as they are.

I hate the fact that people try to belittle others because they don't believe in the same religious organization. I mean how do they even know theirs is the right one?? The you just have to have faith isn't a good enough answer. There are so many different religions and they all want their people to have faith that they chose the right one... yet there is no explanation as to why it is the right one.

The thing that really drives me crazy though is the people that attribute everything happening in their life to God. People go on Survivor or Big Brother or American/Canadian Idol and say God put them there. Its Gods will that they won. What??? Why would God choose them over another person? Why would God say you are more deserving than this other contestant who also believes in me.

I understand that people believe God gave them problems to overcome. I believe the same thing. If things are tough I believe that they are tough for a reason and that God wouldn't give more problems than you can handle but the idea that each specific thing in your life is Gods doing is (in my opinion) wrong. How could God truly look over every single person and have a hand in every single thing.

It also takes away the importance of making your own decisions. Its a scapegoat. Easy to say oh I made the wrong decision and instead of being accountable you can just say well it was Gods will. Taking the blame off you. How can you be responsible for your own actions if you can attribute everything to God?

I think I will have more oppurtunity to relax this weekend. I work tonight and tomorrow until 4pm. I'm not sure if everyone is going to Name that Tune this week. I'm thinking of taking a break from it this weekend. I am sure though that if people phone me to go I'll end up going.

I think Sunday will be a relaxing day. If the weather is nice I'll be heading to an outdoor pool with a friend. If it isn't nice then I'll probably just relax at home.

I think next week will be a good work week... the boss will be out of town and even though I work tuesday, wednesday and friday I at least have the weekend off. I might head to Calgary to visit a friend which would be fun. I need to visit her before she has her baby. I have to see her waddle!

People can so suck it. If I'm not given all the information how am I supposed to do what the fuck you want me to? Seriously do you think I'm a fucking mind reader??? Walk in here saying I need the paperwork for the thing. What thing???? There are many things here. 120 of them? We don't have an order for 120 so again how the fuck would I know what you want? Maybe if you brought a drawing with you or at least the freakin wo I'd know what you want.

Then you get annoyed with ME??? How the fuck can you get annoyed with ME? Oh btw (blank) company called about a pick up. Oh. You know that? What everything there isn't ready? Well they just called saying your pieces are ready. They don't usually call when only a portion of the shit is ready. Oh your annoyed with me again because I don't know that not all the pieces are ready. Really well it would have helped me out (because remember I'm not a mind reader) if you had told me you already talked to them BEFORE getting annoyed that I didn't know only some of the pieces were ready.

You better not be bitching at the boss about me because you seem pissed enough to bitch about it. No worries though... he will tell me that you complained and all I have to do is say.. I'm not the fucking mind reader he thinks I am.

Fuck. I'm done.

Edit: Ahhh shit now I feel bad. I talked to the boss about it. He just told me some of the guys in the back were unhappy too. Now he is going to have a talk with the dude. Tell him that if he is in a bad mood he still can't take it out on us. It does happen fairly often. If things aren't good in his life he does take it out on the guys in the back. Has taken it out on me too but I gave him shit for it before so it doesn't happen often. I didn't really want him in trouble though.
My mood has improved but am still not my usual self. Nothing much going on the last couple of days.. a couple things that didn't improve my mood. Work and more work.

I hate banks. I pay the company visa (capital one visa) every month at CIBC. They have no problems with it. We don't have an account with them (other than another visa with them). I forgot to bring the cheque with me to pay the capital one visa so I figured no problem I'd go to my bank (which was closer) and pay the visa there since I wanted to deposit a cheque anyway.

I go in and wait in line. Takes forever. I finally get to the front and the lady starts the process. She stamped the visa stub and initialed the cheque and then asked for my card. I was like well the visa isn't through my account its for the company I work for. She then tells me they can't process it. I was like why not? She said it was because the company doesn't have an account with them.

I go its to pay the visa... it doesn't go through you other than applying the money. Every other bank does it (I also paid it at Royal Bank once again we have no account with them). She was like yeah well we just don't. We don't want to be liable for the money.

I say fine just use my account then. She takes my card looks at my account and then says she can't. I asked why not. She said my account isn't approved for such a large amount. I tell her thats bullshit. I know for a fact its approved for 2000.00 since I set it up to work that way. She says no we can't do it. I'm totally pissed now. I can deposit $2000.00 into an debit machine and take all $2000.00 of it out right away yet I can't pay a visa for the company (the payment was just under $2000.00) through my account.

I had a $13000.00 loan through that account. A loan in which I've never missed a payment not to mention I have perfect credit and my account isn't approved to put that much money through???

I've had problems with the bank before. I would switch my account to another bank but thats the most convenient one. Plus when you switch you start off with restrictions on your account that I don't need.

My brand new car with the brand new tires now has a nail in one tire. So I have a slow leak in the tire until I get it fixed. Luckily I should have it fixed before the end of work. The inside door handle was loose when I bought the car. No problem they ordered a panel to replace it. They installed said panel and guess what. Thats right the handle is still loose.

Gas prices are crazy at 92.5 cents per litre. That converts to $3.50/Gallon (I think). Fuck

You've reached the blog of Danikabur. Unfortunately she is in too pissy of a mood to blog today. There is no reason for her bad mood so no need to worry. She will be back to blogging as soon as her anger at the world leaves her.

Feel free to leave a message after the beep (errr by clicking comments) she will get back to you when she feels like it.

Edit: I was just reading Jessica Rabbits site and realized that I stole the way this post is done from her. She has a message about sleeping written in the form of an answering machine.

Sorry for the post idea theft without giving credit.

Another busy weekend. Saturday I woke up early. I kept waking up in the hopes that Harry Potter had arrived. I kept whining to my Dad about the book not being there and having to go to work without it. About five minutes before I had to work he came dowstairs with the book. I was so happy! I knew I wouldn't be able to read that much at work but I was able to read a bit.

I read some more when I got home. Went to name that tune again and had a blast. We won again. (Well tied for first) Then when the place closed we ended up at Humpty's for food and coffee. Didn't get home until 5:30am. Slept until about 1pm and read when I got up.

Around 4 we left to go boating. Had a great time as usual. Attempted some more jumps and did pretty good other than falling ever time I land.. lol Also went on the tube and ate a few bugs. Tubing is also a blast.

Sadly my friend Dayna is going to Salt Lake (on Wed) for a month or so. I'm going to miss her a lot. Hopefully she has a good time but not so much that she moves there.

Saturday, July 16, 2005

I just got home from a fun evening. Dayna and I went to a bar for some dancing and for her to play pool. I got hit on a lot. It was great. :) Two guys were talking to me and one asked me out. He was very sweet but I wasn't really attracted so I told him that I have a boyfriend. He talked to me some more. Told me I was a very sweet girl and that the more he talks to me the sadder he is that I'm taken. Another guy went up to my friend and asked her if I was her friend. She said yeah but if you want to know her name you'll just have to go up to her and ask. He never did. One of them didn't believe that I am 27.

I left earlier than Dayna since I have to work tomorrow. As I was leaving the parking lot a guy pulled up next to me and was like where are you heading. I said home. He was like oh too bad you aren't staying. I laughed. He said you are really cute I just had to stop you so I could tell you that. I thanked him and told him to have a good night.

Yeah.. it was a good night. :)

Now I must sleep.. I am getting up early in the hopes that I get Harry Potter before I have to go to work (that and I need to finish my laundry or I won't have clothes to wear for work)

I so love wakeboarding. I am really sore today but its worth it. I have all kinds of bruises but again.. its worth it. The first time I fell I hit my head on the water.. not too hard but hard enough. I told one of the guys that and he offered me the use of his helmet. I accepted and the next few times I was way more daring. I realize that part of what was holding me back from really attempting to jump the wake or try turning the board was that I would fall and hurt my head. I think the fear came because the first time I went out I hit my head so I got the fear from then on.

I am still very much a novice but am getting better. I was able to do a couple (small) jumps and I turned the board. Turning the board wasn't as hard as I thought it would be but I fell shortly after. I am used to going with my left leg forward and balancing that way so when I turned the board and had my right leg forward I got mixed up with the balancing and fell.

After wakeboarding I went on the tube with one of the guys. That was soo fun. By the time I was done I had no strength left. I couldn't have held onto the tube even if I wanted to. Such a fun evening!

I 'met' Stephie online when she was 15. She was always a cool chick and someone I loved chatting with. She became like a little sister to both me and Sardi. When she first got all growned up and went off to college I heard very little from her. Now though we are back in touch both blogging and I am shocked to say she is turning 20! Have a very happy day Stephie!!!

As usual I am feeling very tired. I worked last night and then went out to a lounge with friends. I had a good time.. I didn't get home until close to midnight though.

Today we are going boating after work. Hopefully the weather will stay nice.

I have to mention.. I love all the comments I've been getting. Thanks guys for entertaining me!!! :)

I am so happy that they have finally come up with an agreement in hockey. It isn't signed yet but very close. Yay for hockey this season!!! I very much missed it. I am also happy that it looks like the NHL will give the time off to allow the players to participate in the 2006 olympics!

Since some of the bloggers I read have been posting about birthdays I'll post a story of one of mine. Its a really short story.

I think it was my 12th birthday. My parents said I could invite 10 friends to celebrate. I was very excited about that. So I gave out invitations and on the day of my birthday I was all ready. I waited. Then waited. Doorbell rings and my friend Diana was there. So we waited. Then waited some more. After a few hours I realized that no one else was coming. Out of ten people only Diana showed up and none of the others even bothered letting me know they weren't showing.

It was sad... very very sad.

A while back (March I think) I mentioned that my boss and a bunch of co-workers were planning a trip to Mexico. The tickets were bought. My boss was going for two weeks and the rest were going for a week. Boss was supposed to leave on Friday. The travel agency called and started changing things. Due to that and the fact that a Hurricane is headed that way and would probably hit during their time there they all agreed to cancel the trip.

I was looking forward to 2 weeks without the boss and 1 week with only one other person working. That would have been so nice... *sigh*

Tuesday, July 12, 2005

Hmmm it appears my audio blogging doesn't work. I'm hoping its just some kind of glitch and not a permanent thing. Edit: Woo hooo its working again!

I work both jobs today and tomorrow and friday. *sigh* I also work on Saturday which makes me sad since I'll be receiving the new Harry Potter book and won't be able to read it!!

I am so tired. I didn't sleep well last night. Kept waking up and then tossing and turning. Hopefully tonight I get a better sleep.

Don't have whole lot to say today. So thats that. lol

I know one of the things making me grouchy is the fact that I am single. I've been single for a while. I never seem to meet guys... at least not ones I am interested in. I truly don't think my standards are too high. I no longer think that its because there is something wrong with me.. or how I look. Its very frustrating though.

I keep being told that I should make the first move. The thing is all of the times I did I was turned down or the person went out with me only because I asked and not because they were that interested. I have come to a decision that I will not make the first move. I want a guy that likes me enough to make the first move... one that has confidence enough to do that. I will still flirt and do things that indicate I have an interest in them but they have to be the one to come after me. There may be exceptions to that (llike if I met Mike Comrie again lol) but for the most part I am just not going to worry myself about making the first move anymore.

Also I've been losing weight.. actually that isn't really true.. I weigh the same but I am losing fat (gaining muscle) because I look thinner and my clothes either fit better or are too big. I am really liking how I look now and what I'd really like to do is go to the restaurant where I hit on the bartender (and was shot down). I'd like to go there and show him what he is missing out on. ;)
My best (guy) friend took me to a movie tonight. We saw the Fantastic Four. I really enjoyed it. It was a very fun movie. Sort of lighthearted and not as serious as most of the other super hero movies lately. Plus it has Julian McMahon in it and a movie with him.. as a villian.. is GREAT

I'm feeling a little less grouchy than I felt earlier... Darryl is always great for making me feel better. Still not 100% better but a lot closer...

I am very grouchy. The last couple of days I've been grouchy. I am not really sure why. I wish I could figure out what the problem is so I can go back to my normal cheery self.

I uploaded pics from the last couple of times out on the boat. There is only one from my trip... I kept forgetting the camera in my car.

Also a bit of good news... my Dad called the company that owns the trailer (that didn't have mudflaps) that spit the rock and cracked my windshield. They are going to pay for it to be repaired.

Also because this post is so short I'll add the shortest personality test.... (taken from Callies site)

You are dreamy, peaceful, and young at heart.
Optimistic and caring, you tend to see the best in people.
You tend to be always smiling - and making others smile.

You are shy and intelligent... and a very hard worker.
You're also funny, but many people don't see your funny side.
Your subtle dry humor leaves your close friends in stitches.

Edit: Another personality test...

You Are a Bright Star Soul

Like a shining star, you have no trouble being the center of attention
In fact, you often feel a bit hurt when all eyes aren't on you
You need to be number one in everything, no matter how trivial
And it's this ego that both hurts your confidence and helps you acheive

You're dramatic and a powerhouse of pure energy
You posess a divine quality or uniqueness that's hard to define
A natural performer, it's likely you'll become famous in some circles.
Just learn not to take everyone's reaction to you so personally!

Souls you are most compatible with: Newborn Soul and Prophet Soul

I'm back! My trip was good. It was actually pretty uneventfull so I don't have any good stories to blog about. I got to relax some and did a lot of walking. I'm totally kicking myself for not carrying my camera around though. A deer walked past me.. so close. Later on my sister and I saw a Moose with two calves (thats what baby moose are called right?) walking so close to us. We were walking along a path and suddenly there they were. We stopped and let it continue on its way. I wouldn't have taken a picture of them though since it was dark and no way did I want to scare the Moose.

We took my car there so now my car has nearly 4000 KM on it!!! Also the windshield is now cracked. Thankfully my Dad said he'd get it fixed for me.

It was great spending time with my family and I absolutely loved the time spent with my nieces! Now I just have to catch up at work... :(

Saturday, July 02, 2005

I finally have a chance to actually sit down in my house and relax. I've been on the go so much the last little while that I was really missing home. I love being busy and having things to do all the time but sometimes it just is a little too much. Today was a very busy day... I got up and headed out to the lake where my brother and Dad have a cabing to celebrate my nieces first birthday. The lake is just over an hour away (Lac La Nonne) and I could only spend a couple hours there.

Headed back into the city to pick up Dayna and then headed to Gull lake. Its about an hour and a half south of the city but since I live on the north end it took about 2 hours to get there. Spent the rest of the evening there with co-workers and friends. Headed home just after ten and totally made record time. I should have gotten cruise control for my car though. I would be going a decent speed (10-20 KM over limit) and then look down and I'm like 40KM over the speed limit! I just couldn't stop doing that. Thankfully no cops stopped me and I at least made it home quickly.

Tomorrow I work and then head out to Name that Tune. Should be a fun time but a late night as usual. My Dad will hopefully be driving us to the family reunion so I'll at least (hopefully) be able to sleep on the way.

4 days with my nieces and other family. I think I'm going to try also get some alone time in there... go for some walks on the nice trails. Maybe I'll get a chance to relax a little bit.

I doubt I'll get a chance to go online again until I get back so everyone have a fantastic (but safe) 4th of July and don't forget me while I'm gone!
