I stole this from Penny. Please do what it asks for me.

One of co-owners of my boss' other company has a dog that he often brings with him when he visits. She gets very excited as soon as she sees the shop. She loves coming here because I heap attention on her.. I even have a couple toys here for her. I absolutely adore that dog. So.. here is a picture.

I'm sick... again. This time I seem to just have a cold. I don't feel too bad just a little stuffed up and have a sore throat. My weekend was pretty good. On Friday I hung out with D and his little cousins (4 and 6). If I put the four year old and my niece in the same room I think people would die from the cuteness. Sometimes I can get my niece laughing so hard that she giggles the cutest giggle. Turns out that I can do that with other kids too. I had the 4 year old laughing just like that. I absolutely loved it.

Then she said "you're crazy".

I had my second date with blind date guy on Saturday. The date went well. I'm sure I'll see him again. I'm confused though. I go through indecision on if I want to go out again with him. I think I might still be letting my fear get in the way.

On Sunday I had planned on relaxing at Sticky, D and D's and then heading to the usual place for movie Sunday. Things didn't exactly turn out that way. I ended up on Whyte ave for dinner and then going to a friends for poker. I had a good time even if it wasn't as lazy a day as I expected.

I am typing this from my car dealership. I am waiting them to finish giving my car an oil change and for them to replace the mirror. I am going to be so happy to have my mirror fixed. Driving with a broken driver side mirror was starting to drive me nuts.

I had a great time last night. Supper was absolutely delicious. Stomp was so much fun to watch. After the show we went back to the restaurant for dessert. I had a very tasty chocolate mousse torte with raspberry sorbet. I didn't think to take a picture this time though. The company was very good... a lot of laughter.

I feel bad for D though. I was feeling the effects of the wine from supper so he drove us to the show in my car. When he was pulling away from where you pay for parking he broke my mirror on the cement post. He drives a truck and isn't used to the mirror being so low. He apologized a million times. I wasn't upset. Shit happens. I feel more bad for him because he is forking out the money to fix it. After the thousandth time he apologized I told him that it isn't a big deal.. it's just a mirror... not like its my arm or something. It will be fixed and back to being like new.

Blind date called me last night. I wasn't home but he did leave a message. I'll probably give him a call tonight. It may have to wait until tomorrow though since tonight I'm heading out for supper and then to see Stomp. I'm pretty much only going to have time to head home and change quickly and head out again. I'm not sure what time Stomp is over at but I'm thinking it will be too late to call.

Speaking of Stomp. I'm so excited! I've been wanting to see them for a long time and I finally get to. I also can't wait for supper. We'll be heading to a classier restaurant with good food. Probably one that I have only been at once but absolutely loved.

On another note I've decided to try hypnotism as a way of quiting smoking. My brother did that 4 years ago and hasn't touched a cigarrette since. I'm going on March.4 to the same guy that hynotised my brother. I haven't been successful quiting using other methods so I figure it's worth a shot. Cross your fingers for me.

Last night I had a date. It was a blind date. I ran into my neighbor at a bar a few months ago. He was with a few of his friends. One of them wanted to meet me so I told my neighbor he could give him my number. I've never really done the blind date thing before and was not really looking forward to it. It's an uncomfortable way to meet someone. I ended up having a pretty good time.

We were able to keep conversation going. Didn't really have any of those awkward silence moments. I'm pretty sure we'll end up going out again in the near future. He seemed to like me so I think he'll call. I think the next time we go out will be better though. Less awkward. Going out with someone you know nothing about is pretty strange and it was hard for me to get comfortable with him. I was really tired also and I don't think that helped with my feeling of the meeting. I got home by 7:45pm and was asleep on my couch by 8pm.

I think I'm also a little scared. Scared of liking someone and then ending up hurt. So I think I was stopping myself from actually liking him. Everytime I'd start to get comfortable in conversation I'd start to think I should be on my guard in case he is like others. I know this is a bad thing and I'm definitely going to work on that; whether its on another date with him or a different guy.

I haven't mentioned this before (I don't think) but I have a new bet going. The bet is with Sticky and C. Basically as usual we were hanging out at the usual place and somehow got on the topic of lent. We were throwing around ideas on what we'd give up for the 40 days of lent.

C said he'd give up insulting people. C is the type of guy that is really quiet. He doesn't say a whole lot but when he does it's usually very funny and usually at someones expense (all in good fun though... he isn't mean).

Sticky figured that in order for it to be fair (just as hard for him as for C) he'd have to give up self gratification and swearing. He also threw in giving up drinking for good measure.

I said I'd give up swearing and sex.

We talked about how hard it would be to give these things up for 40 days. Somehow we decided it was a good idea to make an actual bet out of it. Basically we each bet $100 dollars on it. If we all last the full 40 days we're going to take the hundred dollars we'd each have spent and go out for a nice supper spend the hundred on food and drinks.

Since none of us figure we would make it to 40 days we all decided that the person who lasts longest (but doesn't make it to 40 days) still deserves something. So if two people go out and the third person stays in for two days longer; the two that went out each give $50 to the last one in.

It's going to be a long 40 days (begins March 1). I honestly only give myself a few days. I'm really hoping I can last longer than the guys though.

I had a very good weekend. My Dad already got out of the hospital on Friday. He was supposed to be there for six days but he is doing so good he got out in two.

I went out friday night and ended up getting home around 4am. Saturday I went out for dinner with some friends to celebrate J's 30th birthday. Headed to Bo's after. I had a blast. I was reminded why I'm better off without Dillon. In the beginning of the night talking and joking with him had me a little sad again that it didn't work. By the end of the night though the way he was acting and some things he said had me happy that I'm no longer with him.

Sunday I worked and then relaxed in the evening.

Today is a holiday for us Albertans. It's 'family day'. No work for me and now I'm off to watch the womens hockey team win gold.

Edit: I just phoned the hospital and my Dad is out of surgery and in recovery. I've got his room number and will be heading to the hospital to visit after work.

Still waiting to hear how people are doing. I'll be phoning the hospital in about an hour to check on my Dad. In the meantime I thought I'd post a couple pictures I took with my phone of the very yummy desert we had last night.

Yummy  desert

Me  and  yummy desert

We had a good time with tasty food. They served a four course meal. The first was salad then came peach sorbet. I had Steak for the main course and D had chicken. Service wasn't so great but the food was very good.

Today begins a stressful week for me. Forget that it's Valentines day.... it isn't even a factor. My friend is having a cyst removed today. Tomorrow a friend is going through something very stressful and upseting. Also tomorrow my Dad goes in for his hernia operation. Normally the procedure to get rid of a hernia is fairly minor. However for my Dad it isn't going to be so minor because of an operation he had a few years ago. They actually have to cut him open. He will be in the hospital for approximately 5 days. Less if all goes well. He will also be off work for a few months. The last time he was in that hospital they overdosed him (by a large amount) on morphine. So needless to say I'm freaking a bit. I won't be able to relax until he is back home safe and sound.

Tonight a friend is taking me out to celebrate Valentines Day. Very sweet of him and I'm glad to not spend the evening alone.

Hope everyone has a very happy Valentines Day

Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm finally starting to feel better. Turns out I have Bronchitis. I took a couple days off and slept through most of them. Sticky brought me soup on Wednesday evening and D brought me soup Thursday afternoon. D also got me a card and a cute little bracelet that is supposed to promote good health. I'm lucky to have such good friends.

I think Pot Stickers is actually chinese food so I don't think it's a Canadian thing but the pic in the post is a pic of Pot Stickers. (They are so yummy... especially made at 4am after playing with lightsabers)

Turns out I'm sick again. I'm sick with the same thing I had a week and a half ago. I took it easy this past week too. Didn't go out as much and when I did go out I made sure to get plenty of sleep. I'm very annoyed at being sick again.

Nothing new going on with me. I watched the Oilers beat (in shootout) the Ducks last night. It was such a fun game to watch. It's games like last nights game that makes me a hockey fan.

HAPPY (one day late) BIRTHDAY TO MAC!!!!

I decided to take the day off on Friday. I knew I'd be out late and didn't want to have to worry about getting up for work.

Thursday evening we went to Name that Tune (at a different place than the usual) and had a blast there. It was sad because we were saying goodbye to M. We met her at the usual place a few months ago and really were just getting closer. It's a great oppurtunity for her work wise though so I wish her luck.

After Name that Tune we headed to the usual place for Kareoke. When the bar was closing Sticky and I headed over to Divine Shadows house for some late night on the lawn lightsabre fights. He has Darth Vadors and a friend left Mace Windus (which is the one I want) and another friend brought his Luke sabre. The three of us played around with them for a while.

Friday was spent laying around watching movies during the day. In the evening we went out to watch a friends band. It was a good time, one of the waitresses of our usual place was there with a friend so we danced and partied with them. We also saw M there for some more goodbyes.

I've been in a weird mood the last couple of days. I'm not really sure what it is. Part of it is Dillon. Seeing him is still hard. I still really like him. I know he isn't the righ guy for me but everytime I see him I can't help but wish he was. Part of it is just wishing I had someone. Being single isn't so bad and I know it's not. It's just I'm ready for a relationship. I really want to find the one for me. I've also begun to think I won't find what I want.

I'm unwilling to settle though. Maybe my standards are too high but I'm not going to settle for anything less than being treated like a princess. Ok that might be a slight exageration. Basically I want/expect to be treated the same way I will treat them. Based on past relationships though that is something I will not find.

I'm thinking that Valentines day coming up is one of the reasons I haven't been able to shake the lonely to be single feeling. I can usually get myself out of feeling down but lately I can't seem to do that. I am pretty sure it's because of the constant reminders of Valentines day coming up.

Having Sticky as my servant while I was sick was definitely nice. Friday night I had him do some grocery shopping as well as my laundry. He refilled my glass everytime it was low. On Saturday he cleaned my car and made my Dad and I breakfast.

At name that tune he wore the dress. I also found a pink robe for him to wear. I let him change into his pj's around midnight but he had to continue wearing the pink robe. I had a good time despite being sick. I was pretty tired by the end of the night. Unfortunately Sticky would prefer that I don't post the pics on here. I'll probably have a few pics up of some of us in our PJs and maybe some of us dancing on the bar. I haven't had a chance to take the pics off my camera yet.

Sunday was a very easy day for him. We sat around watching movies and he really only had to refill my coffee and juice a few times. He brought me supper and then we headed to our usual place to watch the end of the hockey game. I left fairly early since I was tired.

I've been very tired all week even though I haven't gone out at all. I'm still recovering from my cold. I will probably head out for wings tonight though. It won't be a late night since tomorrow I'll be out fairly late. I am going to the usual place for a going away party for a friend. She is moving this weekend. It's a great job opportunity for her but we'll miss her.
