Live a Little, Be a Gypsy, Get Around

By and by. Another week has come and gone. So fast they seem to go by. It was another fun filled week though. I attended the Hawksley Workman concert at the Wave on Thursday and it was soo good! Everyone there rocked out, and the band themselves had a great time! However despite the fact that I only drank one beer the whole night, I woke up with what seemed to be a hangover. Sheesh.

Friday night was a gathering at my parent's place to celebrate my ripe age of 22, but more or less just to celebrate everything. It was so great to see everyone there! And I THANK YOU ALL! Unfortunately we were kicked out a little earlier than planned, but next time I promise we'll stay for the whole night! As for Saturday...all I have to say is 3 words. Navy Pub Crawl.
See pics from the party and the crawl HERE.

On the domestic side of things, I baked banana bread yesterday for the first time. I had 3 rotting bananas in the fridge and took a trip to the Bulk Barn for the rest of the ingredients. God I love that place. I got all the neccessary baking supplies, and some sunflower seeds for a snack. $1.75! I mean, I worked there for almost 2 years, I should expect those prices, but I am still shocked everytime I go there. Anywho, not to brag, but I think my banana bread turned out great! I wish there was enough to let you all try a piece, but there are only two pieces left. I think I'll try pumpkin pie next. Pumpkins have to be carved this week so I might as well. Ever notice you can use pumpkins like buffalos? You can use every part of the pumpkin. The outside for carving and decorating, the insides for pie, and the seeds you can sprinkle salt on them and bake them for a tasty snack. Now, I've never tried using every part of a buffalo, but I know it has been done.

She's So Rocksteady


Isn't she pretty?

And she's all mine. My birthday present from my parents got delivered to me a few days early. Right to my door. I had been out of practice since I moved out because I no longer had access to Dad and Ian's guitars at home. And I'm not super great, but I do have a roster of songs that I can perform. But I missed being able to pick up and play whenever I wanted, so a guitar was the first thing I had in mind for a special birthday present. Dad and I took a look at Sober's the other day and it came down to this black one, or a blue one. The black one has a very minor scrape on it so we got it for a cheaper price. Plus she sounds absolutely wonderful. So the black one it was.

I call her Black Betty.

Look At Those Cavemen Go

I think I might have writer's block. This is about my fourth attempt at writing a post over the past week and half. And it's not from lack of things to write about for dang sure. There have been a-many adventures since the last post, but I would start to write something, almost finish it, re-read it and then erase it. It's not like I even have to be picky about what I'm writing. It's not being marked or published or anything like that. Weird how it works. So what do you do when you're having trouble writing? You write about your writer's block.

Well let us see. I'll give you a brief layout of what I had tried to write about in my previous attempts:
- I spent a Friday night parading around Charlottetown with good friends taking silly pictures which (can hopefully) be seen HERE.
-We took an excursion to Moncton for some Sunday shopping where I purchased a new pair of shoes (I rarely buy shoes so it was a big deal) and you can view the silly pictures HERE.
- I have fallen in love for the first time. With 5 beautiful creatures in which I hold in the palm of my hands. They are in the form of kittens. No matter how crappy you feel they will guarentee a smile on your face. And they can be viewed from the same link as the Moncton pictures.
- There is a dead sparrow on my balcony. I think it died protecting itself from the windy, rainy days we've been having. A picture will be coming.
-Had a night of Pillsbury baking and nerdy dance competitions. Oh Sheena, I only WISH I had pictures.

So that's all I have right now. This week coming should be adventurous as well. Hawksley Workman is playing at the Wave this Thursday if anyone wants to go. So gimme a ring, or drop me an email.
