Ok, so Roxy is still excellent at getting into trouble and going places she shouldn't.

There was the time she got into McDonald's at Boundary and Broadway/Lougheed and was headed off just before she pounced into the kitchen. Just because I let go of her momentarily as I was trying to attach her to a picnic table outside.

There's the time she ran out the front door and directly into the mail truck.

There's the time when there was most of a foot of fresh snow on the road and she went bounding down the middle of it. And the time she got out when people were walking down the street to the bus stop and/or school in the morning, and she'd follow them trying to say hi... when she had no collar on to grab.

Then there's tonight.... She was out on the back balcony, and the neighbours' newish german shepherd was on their patio down below chained up. She kept whining at it, and jumping at my heels to try to get me to let her go say hi.

I eventually decided it was too hot, so I went down to the garage. Little did I know, my father had gone down to the back driveway to work on the Volvo, and left the garage door open. Of course, Roxy again has no collar on.

She promptly jumps the wall up to the neighbour's patio level, and went directly through its fence to say Hi!!! *wagwagwag* to the other puppy. Other puppy starts barking. Old, angry looking Chinese guy comes out, and Roxy promptly jumps at the opportunity to enter his house. He yells into his house. Roxy comes out shortly after, followed by a younger Chinese guy in his pajamas. He struggles to catch Roxy, and then proceeded to spend a few minutes attempting to actually pick her up and toss her back over the fence. I'm wearing no shoes, and can't climb as well as Roxy. The guys are making Engrishy attempts to ask me wtf my dog was doing there, why she had no collar, and how the fuck she got out the entire time. She gets back over the fence, and I chase her a bit, trying to grab her. Grab her. Carry her back into the house.

Dammit Roxy, you're heavy. And you're not my brother.

Now taking donations to buy me a new computer. Anyone? Anyone? Yeah, I thought so :(

Ah well. Summer job time. Now, if only my resume wasn't on that computer... *sigh*

Meh. Maybe it's on a back-up disk. It's not like I've updated it in a few years. Shit, my last job, the guy never even saw my resume, or asked to see it.

Apparently when you've been at sea for 5 days, when you set foot on actual land, it feels like the earth is shaking. Damned compensation. Ah well. At least the sea sickness only lasted a day. I can deal with looking drunk wherever I walk on land and tripping over nothing.

How the hell did I manage an A- in Biology with a 65% on the midterm and 36% on a quiz? o.O

But seriously, not complaining. I must've pulled off some whacky shit on the Final.

drawing personality

What does your drawing say about YOU?

The results of your analysis say:

You tend to pursue many different activities simultaneously. When misfortune does happen, it doesn't actually dishearten you all that much.
You are a thoughtful and cautious person. You like to think about your method, seeking to pursue your goal in the most effective way.
You are creative, mentally active and industrious.
You have a sunny, cheerful disposition.


Hmm...

Thank [insert deity here] this week's almost over. *sigh*

And this semester's almost over. 3 presentations, 2 papers, 3 summaries, 3 quizzes, and 5 finals to go. I see a finish line somewhere, at least.

And then cruise.

Also, UCFV better let me in. I don't want to find a back-up plan.

My grandmother is completely not there at all anymore. It's not just "hearing" us yelling things in the night and waking us up now, or "hearing" us fall out of bed and coming to sit on the edge of the bed saying, "I'm just going to sit here."

This morning, she knocked on my door, and before I could answer, she was already out the door between her place and the kitchen. About 15 minutes later, she did it again, and again was gone before I could answer.

My only warning as to her current state of mind was talking to my mother on the phone after I got up, and having her say she'd tried talking to her, but she just can't.

So I walk through her place to get upstairs, and tell her to stop knocking on my damned door and walking away. And she's like, "Well, how am I supposed to know if you're alive? Nobody can tell if you're alive! What if you were dead?!?"

...."You mean, sleeping?"

"Pretending to be dead! Why do you have to be so stupid? Why do you have to be so MEAN? Why do you have to do this to me?"

"...Sleep? What normal people do at night?"

"Pretending to be dead! Why do you have to pretend to be dead and get me all worried? I've been trying to wake you up for *HOURS*! I've been playing my piano as loud as possible, and you wouldn't wake up, so you must be dead!"

Now, her piano is on the opposite side of the house, and to get to it, I have to take a circle route around the back of the house. There's also a garage in between me and her piano room, so no doors, and lots of insulation from sound.

So she starts going off about how is she supposed to know when any of us are alive, when all we can do is sleep? Dude, we sleep at night. Like normal people. What the fuck? I mean, she's been randomly checking on us and waking us up to make sure we're alive for ages, but it's never been *this* bad.

And now, because I yelled at her for it, she thinks she's in imminent danger, and I'm going to kill her or something, so she's got her coat on, and is ready to run out the door. What the hell?

Hmm... maybe there *is* going to be a big earthquake this week. The dog is going nuts, for absolutely no reason. Has been all day.
The birds are going nuts too, but I assume that's just because nobody's bothered to go buy more bird seed yet. :x
