where have i been?

.novacom golf tourney.

Somehow, for some reason I was asked to participate in Novacom's first annual golf tournament. So I bought a glove. I played 18 holes on a PGA course and it was amazing. Where I lacked in golfing ability, I made up for in language. haha. That golf exam treated me right. I knew what they were talking about even if I didnt know how to hit the ball. In any case, the boys were nice to me and we had a great day busting around in the carts. The weird MJ glove pic? I don't know, it just happened.
.megan howie bachlorette.

You would think there would be a picture of Megan in her own bachlorette photos, but it appears that I don't have one. Sad. I am sure we can all see one soon on facebook. First we hit a pinata's head off at the Howie's. Watching grown women swing a bat at a pinata - now thats a good time. After, we went to a place downtown called the "Kino" cafe. There was Flamenco dancing and beautiful Spanish music. One of those places that doesnt look like much but lights up when filled with music, people and culture. It was nice to see a caveat of cultural life in the middle of the city. That and we had Sangria with some great girls, a good night was had.

Another one bites the dust....

I have done it. I have initated Lavonne into the blogging world. You can all thank me later. I played around with it a little and put a pretty sweet picture on there. I figured I better take credit for it, because my travel blog is going to look EXACTLY the same. Perhaps even a similar name...

So my dear friend Lavonne is heading off to Europe for 2 months - so what better time to blog right? We will be meeting up at the end of her journey, and the beggining of mine. Such good times ahead.

Geocaching and George...

So I was going to post on Thursday, and it was going to be amazing. I was going to talk about my eventful Thursday night, and Rachel was going to be shocked and say "on a Thursday?!?". And then, I forgot to post....

Now, I am going to tell of my adventures anyway. On Thursday night, I was sitting around, trying to avoid my homework, looking for something to do. I left my house at 8:00, and by the time the evening was through I had: gone for coffee with Laura, gone geocaching with Shaun Gaynor and visited Lavonne.

Oh yes, you might have picked up on the italics there. I went geocaching. Now, if you don't know the MacDonalds, you might be wondering "What is geocaching?". Its this international game that is monitored online. People sign up, and use their GPS unit to find co-ordinates. At this co-ordinates is a little box, filled with.....nothing. Well sort of. Everyone who finds the "cache" records their name inside. It's strange and wonderful all at the same time. It's sort of a "thrill of the hunt" type of scenario. On Thursday night, Shaun and I climbed up tree roots, hopped a fence and discovered our treasure - a film canister. I know, it sounds quite odd, but it's actually great times.

And now, its Sunday and truth be told, the weekend hasn't provided too much more entertainment. Yesterday, we moved my brother from "Denim" to a beautiful house in Langley. Sadly, it was raining, so it made for a pretty wet day for some. On Friday, Matt and I did get a chance to see Ocean's 13. Of course, I was already on board because it was an excuse to watch George for two hours straight. But the boys actually redeemed themselves from Ocean's 12. I heard that they made it simply for this purpose. Even so, it was well executed. The cast was on their game pulling sly maneouvers and just being charming. This is truly George at his best, in his suit grinning with those beautiful eye wrinkles. Umm..sorry random George tangent there. Truly though, I do recommend the movie, for more than just George. If you liked the first, you will like this.

Soooo true....

Just replace "live-journal" with blogger there, or even facebook and you've got me. On more than one occasion, during the actual event I have said "this is going to be great for the blog".
Even now, as I anticipate my upcoming Europe trip, I am thinking about the great posts that will come. That my friends is ridicolous. Yet, I am still a blog lover. I just can't help myself. People are writing about their lives, and that is amazing. Just saying, some days we have to realize how silly we are. Or at least I do.

This weekend....

Apparently, the Trinity Human Kinetics department is onto something. For this one time in my life, they may have actually succeeded in promoting healthy living. Shaun Gaynor emailed out a list of hikes for this current year, and I called Matt to see if he wanted to go. I thought "hey, why not, I have the shoes and the shirt". This is how I decide if I can do things, based almost purely on apparel. Oh man.

So I spent my Sunday hiking up Cypress Mountain. The view was very rewarding, birds ate off all of our hands, and we ran down the mountain in snow. Literally - ran. I am not a "run down the mountain" type, but when its snow, it's good times. I can't say the same for the way up unfortunately. Snow makes it twice as hard to make every step without slipping. But alas - we got the joy on the way home.
An eventful weekend all in all:

Dublin Crossing Pub with Brandon, Lindsay, Geoff and Lavonne. Go to that Pub -its amazing. Then after Dinner - WONDERLAND Outdoor Golf, you might think I am kidding, but I'm not.

Breakfast with Heather Hastings
Packing with Lavonne
Closing Sbux with one man down (equals crazy times)


There you go, just what you always wanted, a detailed itinerary of my weekend. Oh wait, you never asked. haha. Oh well, you got it anyway. Isn't that what blogs are for? To show the eventful life we lead. Geez. The Camera is back, so photos are accompanying posts again. Hurrah! Posted by Picasa
