Nice to e-meet you! That's internet for Hello. And that's also about as far as I got in planning what to say in this thing...but as a lover of spontaneity and the inability to edit my own words because that would mean actually having an awareness as to the nothingingness that I am about to ramble on about for far too long...I'm just going to go ahead and keep typing. Apparently...

Dust Bowl Dance

This past weekend was full of different activities which was taken up mostly by different get togethers with  family for my brothers 19th birthday. This included, 2 dinners, 1 lunch, bowling, a picnic and a LOT of dessert.
(If you are Canadian, this picture is kind of a big deal. The man in the cowboy hat is Mantracker, and he basically does just that. It is my brothers goal to go on his show, beat Mantracker, and leave the signed autograph he gave him at the finish line.)

On Sunday I went to a festival downtown to celebrate Italian Days, which I of course took my Italian Grandmother too who was in her glory. She just wanted a meatball (and as you read that please do the italian hand gesture and pronounce it meat-a-ball). Festivals on Commercial Drive are always a ton of fun, but it just so happened to be absolutely down pouring that day. After about an hour of the rainstorm I completely gave up my polka-dot umbrella and joined in the street dancing/puddle jumping.

From there I went to a friends birthday/going away party/graduation celebration which was super fun but also sad to say goodbye to her for 4 months. We played Pictionary which I admit that I am usually pretty amazing at but that went out the window when I picked the word JELL-O and had to draw it with my EYES CLOSED. Needless to say it did not go well.

I've gone to a few concerts which have all been awesome! My favorite being a secret show put on by Mumford and Sons where the time and location were not given. The radio gave out clues to the location up until an hour ahead of time in which they told to where to go. I was sure that my detective skills were top notch until I showed up to an insane crowd of people. But that made for a really good atmosphere. Bands should do more shows like this. Did I mention it was free?

That's all for now!

    Another mental week - I'm jealous of your life.

    Also jealous that you got to go to Italian Days and I totally missed it :(

    I LOLed. Meat-a-ball. I totally did the hand gesture.

    At least when we play charades next, I know what to do to get you to guess meat-a-ball or something Italian related!

    And jumping in puddles for the WIN!
