I could kiss you Kraft

Matt informed me of the new and improved Kraft Peanut Butter. I've been deprived and I can finally eat Kraft Peanut butter again. I am estatic. I bought some today when I went grocery shopping. Kraft is improving, but it's no Blue Menu. I bought many things from Blue Menu today. I'm excited about them.

Kellie is the biggest sweetheart. She made me supper Sunday night and sent me to the library with food :) She's the greatest.

It's nice to be back in Waterloo. I wasn't too impressed I was greeted with snow, but I'll live. I've unpacked my room so it's home again. I'm going to miss toronto, but at least I'll get to go there a couple times to see a ball game.

"I'm an Actuary, I can work anywhere"

I was soooo amused today during lunch. My little brother was watching Kim Possible and I wasn't really paying attention, but then I heard "I'm an actuary, I can work anywhere" and i just couldn't believe my ears. I just thought that was hilarious.

So yesterday was my last day. I was hoping I could leave early, but that didn't happen! All morning I was working my ass off on a quote. For lunch, my department took me to this pizza place just down the street. I was impressed, it was a nice place. I got a pizza with spicey italian sausage, broccoli, and snowpeas. It was tastey. It was a nice lunch. They thanked me for all the work I've done and such. I'm really going to miss it there. The CEO is really great as well. She knew it was my last day and thanked me for all the work I did. Very nice of her. After work, my friend from work, Jon, bought me dessert and showed me some of the u of t campus. Wow is it ever big. I love walking around downtown toronto. It's so cool. I'm going to miss toronto so much.

Today the fire alarm went off in the apartment. It was crazy!! 3 fire trucks came and everything. I was amused. I'm used to nothing happening when a fire alarm goes off. My other apartments were like that anyway.

I went bowling with Vincent, and Dad tagged along. It was pretty fun. I was glad I could spend a bit of time with Vincent since I won't be seeing him for a long time probably. We also went to the golden griddle for supper which was nice.

So I'm supposed to be packing now. Well, at least I have some of my laundry done... I just hope it doesn't take too long to get everything ready. Most of the stuff I brought I didn't unpack so it shouldn't be too bad.

Back in the 'loo tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to the hard-core studying it'll bring, but I miss everyone. I'm not too excited about school... well, i am looking forward to Popular Music and Culture!!! Who knows, maybe Loss Models will surprise me and be very interesting. I doubt that though. I'm sure bomber will more than make up for that though ;)

Yep, that's right. I finally did it. I got my excellent co-op evaluation.

Today amused me. At work, one of the actuaries came up and asked me if I wanted this wooden box with a swiss re logo on it and inside was a number one pool ball! hahaha. Of course I said yes. Then they came back and asked if I wanted this swiss re logo paper weight. Yes again!! They came to me a third (and final) time asking me if I wanted this weird cube thing that sort of folds apart a certain way and eventually gets back to wear you started. It's cool!

Tonight was last *wing* night. We went to this little place on front and it was neat. It was quick though, so we walked up to the eaton center and chris, matter, jeff got dairy queen. I was full from the FREE Ben and Jerry's ice cream at 4.

A pretty decent day, considering it started with my train arriving at union 15 minutes late!!

Oh, and tomorrow is my last study day. Now if my headache would go away everything would be great.

3 Days Left

Today was the big move into the new building at work today. It's pretty nice, but it's no BCE Place. I got there and there was champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries, balloons, lots of food, and presents! Pretty impressive. I have a brand new LCD Monitor at work. It's gorgeous. Think they'll let me take it home with me?? *sigh* Half the day was checking out the new building and unpacking which is okay, but i have soooo much to do it wasn't good.

This weekend was decent. It did start Thursday at noon so I really can't complain hehe. I watched Spanglish with my dad. It was really good. I have Ocean's Twelve to watch still. I'm excited for that one. Sunday I went to Peterborough to visit my grandmas. It was supposed to be a short visit with both of them, then home before supper time. No such luck. We ended up staying for supper so I didn't get home till much later than planned. Oh well.

I still can't believe I'm done work on Friday. I'm glad to be moving back to Waterloo but I'll miss Swiss Re and toronto. I already had to say good bye to one of the girls in treaty =( Sunday's the big move. Thankfully I haven't unpacked much so it shouldn't be too difficult to get ready for it.

Wing night was really good tonight. We went to this pizza place in Matters building and I was very surprised. It was really good. Normally I buy the thick crust lots of bread pizza cause I love my bread, but this was thin crust stuff. It was well done, crispy, dark, great. I thought it was very tastey.

I brought everyone cake for dessert tonight. Thought I'd make it a tradition. I would have done it next week but the yummy dessert place is in BCE Place and Adrienne came to wing night, so it seems right to make it tonight since she was the reason I brought in cake last time =)

Matty brought the Razr to wing night so we could all see. It was the ugliest phone. Reena, why do you want your dad to buy it? It's UGLY. Nobody liked it. You're insane.

Tomorrow I'm in charge of the pricing department. I have 3 meetings with very important clients and get to make lots of major decisions. Either that or everyone else is at a conference so I get to be teased about being in charge hehe.

Smile Time

I can't wait for May so I can buy an Angel Puppet. I watched that episode this morning. The best is when he's a vampire puppet hehe.

I got really sick of wearing my winter boots when it is so nice out. I've been looking for new shoes for a while but I couldn't decide what I wanted. When that's the case, on sale shoes are perfect and this is what I found. I'm much happier now.

8008 to go!

I just need 8008 shoppers optimum points to reach the next reward level and I get 75 dollars of free stuff!!! I'm so excited.

While I was in Shoppers I bought Praline filled chocolate eggs. They are incredible. They remind me of Easter in France. My French Mom bought everyone a hollow easter character filled with chocolates inside. Mine had Praline filled chocolate eggs in it. I must buy more. Lots more.

I watched Mr. 3000 last night. It was pretty amusing. I felt all proud to understand what they were talking about when they mentioned the national league hehe.

Sense of Reality

Tonight for *wing* night we went to Jeff and Chris' Place. Chris' new tv is really cool. It's silver which is like an added bonus. So anyway, Jeff made wings. Apparently they tasted good, but some were burnt which amused me. hehe. Overall, very well done though :) Chris made pasta and it was yummy as usual. He broke the linguinie though. I was disgusted. Not only was it harder to eat, it tasted different! hehe, okay, so maybe it didn't taste different.

I thought my yogurt buddy would reply themselves about who they are. Maybe they are embaressed.

I think I've gotten used to the elevators at work. When I'm in the apartment elevator, i can't tell it's moving anymore. I remember being able to tell it's moving at work, unless I'm remembering wrong. Maybe my theory is just wrong. Or maybe that was its plan all along. Confused yet?

The rest of this week is business casual, and then from Friday till my last day it's jean day. I'm happy, cause casual at work when normally forbidden rocks. I wanted to wear my new suit once before I left though. I've been told by a few people to wear it anyway. I'm still iffy. Everybody in jeans... me in a suit?? I'm not sure if I could do it.

Armed and Fabulous

So this weekend was alot of fun. Friday night we went to bomber to celebrate Kellie's birthday. It was Edge 101.2 night. The music was fun but my legs were sore so I wasn't in a big dancing mood. It was fun though, it was great being out with everyone. I miss Waterloo. Saturday Keizo and I went out for breakfast and saw Miss C 2. I haven't seen a Sandra movie in threaters since the first Miss C so I am very happy =)

I'm amused, I'm bringing another coffee table to Waterloo. If Ang doesn't bring hers with her to London we'll have 4. I figure we'll move one or two somewhere else. It's a really nice coffee table though, and it's big. hehe.

On Wednesday I found the perfect interview suit. I'm very excited. I just need to get it hemmed and find shoes. I went browsing Thursday and I have a good idea of what I want. I have to finish my resume soon. I forgot postings started the 2nd week of school. I'll be busy then so I don't want to have to worry about it later.

I'm thinking of taking Tai Chi this semester. I shouldn't be too busy and I think it'll be alot of fun. I might also take a Step class. It all depends when they are offered though.

Gmail rocks. Ctsly increasing mail storage was the coolest idea. So much more fun than just giving an extra gig at once. I'm confused though, it's still increasing. When will it stop? Oh, and google gulp was hilarious. That was the only april fools thing i read though. Silly work being so busy.
