So sitting around on my day off with nothing to do i've been thinking...

I have nothing to do. My life is so different from last year at this time.

Last year I was in Scotland (you can see it in my archives) driving around, enjoying new things and today I would have been arriving in Edinburgh (Ed-in-borough)...

i dunno why i am posting really, it's not really exciting, but i miss my life last year. I really had no worries, no debt and my only real responsibilities were getting up for work and making sure to explore the Old World. It's so sad to think that now I am somewhere else, doing nothing...

I had lunch yesterday with Bev, Frost, Steph, Bruce, Andrea, Geoff and Craig. I miss the island and mostly because of the people that are there. I love that place, and I love the people involved... I dunno. I like life, just not today.

Either way... ... yea... nothing else to say...

Christmas was fine, i got new slippers and pjs, a box of tea and a few gift cards. It was a pretty slim year, but that was fine because we all got to go to disney world. I am still working on the Disney post... it will come eventually... but it will probably be mostly photos i am just not motivated...

anyway, ciao arrivederci

NogFest 2006

NogFest 2006 was last night! Those of you that missed it... too bad for you. It was great! We played Wii! (We Wii-ed?) We drank Nog - the liquor of choice for 2k6 was Brandy - and we decorated cookies!

All in all it was a great night, though most of us eventually drank beer until drunk due to lack of noggage and mixers.

Here are some pictures! Also, you can see these on my new Flikr Account!! Yay! Be sure to check it out because I am planning on updating as much as they'll let me! Cheers!

P.s. - I am going to Virginia this week! Yay!

Matt and I being happy together

Yes, lets all have a laugh at Matt's Expense...

Look at all these drunks!

She's got a little'a something in her... I think it might be Colonel... yea... thats it

I see drunk people!

Our NogFest 2006 Tree! It's so beautiful...

Boxing the new-fashioned style... on the Wii!

Look at the tasty NogFest Traditional Cookies from the Decorating "Contest" It's fair to say that the orange one didn't win. Yes that is an actual mini-hot dog from the fondue pot on the cookie.

I like the dove myself, and the Alien w/ Head Injury next to it. Unfortunately my vagina cookie (The Georgia O'Keefe Special) that I made was eaten the night before...
if ya' kno' whudd'im sayin' *wink* *nudge* *wink*

Life Sountrack and David

OK, i guess my Disney post has just not surfaced yet... but I want it to... i am just so unmotivated to type a lot... Plus i Had to type a paper already today or I'd just do it right now...

Anyway, today while I was typing my paper I was ALSO chatting online and listening to music. I got an email that was about writing your own Life Sountrack!

So I did it! It's really cool so I thought I would post it... this is the email I sent out... copy it and paste it into your own emails with your own songs!

Have fun!

So here’s how this works. Open up iTunes (or whatever), put it on random/shuffle, and press play. Whatever song plays first, you write down in after the first question below. Then hit next, and continue!

Send everyone the soundtrack of your life…

Opening Credits: Defeat You – Smashmouth

First Day at School: Smile – Lily Allen

Falling In Love: Moonlight Cocktail – Glenn Miller and his Orchestra

photo blogs

lately i have been really interested in photo blogs...

i just like them a lot!!

i have found a bunch of them, and i even have one that i get delivered to me every day.

in the end here are a couple that i really like:
East Lansing Daily Photo
London Photo Blog

Both of these are great, but search for some more on Google or something and you'll find all sorts of cool photo blogs!!

on a side note... kris is starting to see someone else... this hurts me, and i feel like shit lately. I dont really know why i am sharing this, mainly because i am a bit drunk... but i appreciate all of my friends, and i miss the ones that have left... every one of them...

I just got back from Walt Disney World and I hope to blog a bit about it when i sort thru the pictures, so keep a sharp eye!
