Such a Soggy Saturday...

and I spent almost 4 hours at school drawing 2 of the 6 drawing I have due on Tesday. Now, I'm going to start working on a paper that I have due on Wednesday and sometime after that I will study for the midterm that I have coming up on Friday.

Welcome to Reading Break!!

...some break!!!

Oh well, guess I'll just have to suck it up and get on with it.

Oh, one thing did brighten my day... I came home from school to Ryan with a bouquet of flowers in his hand. You know, there are times when he can really surprise me... he did manage to get a big smile out of me...

Guess what....

Guess what, guess what, guess what!!!!

It's almost spring!!!

And how do I know that you might ask. Well, I have to tell you I saw the most lovely sight the other day. I went for a walk on Thursday on my lunch break and was walking down Pender Street where I came a cross a Japanese Plum tree all in bloom in glorious pink! Made my day and then some.

Finally watched Little Misss sunshine on Friday. Totally funny!

Also saw the Barenaked Ladies in concert on Saturday. Three words... phenomenal, energetic and hilarious! They had Tomi Swick as their opening act and he was really good. I'd definitely be up to hearing more of him.

BNL put on a great concert. There were lots of jokes, including one about getting a replacement piece for BC Place Stadium Costco, since of course Vancouver won't allow Walmart in, Costco was the only logical choice.

One other interesting tidbit is that there is a huge environmental component to their tour in that they are working with different groups to off-set the envionmental impact of their tour by putting money into different projects and increasing awareness through their audiences. All I have to say to that is "good work".
