Hey again - bet you didn't expect me back so soon, well neither did I. A

Anyways, thank for those who commented and those who care - I am much, much too lucky to have such wonderful family & friends, so to wallow in sorrow for too long would be to ignore my many fortunes. In any case, judging from the past - things always seem to have a way of working out for me- whether its because I make them work out or the stars are aligned in my favor is yet to be determined :) So ke sera sera, whatever will be will be. Don't get me wrong now, not saying I am completely non-sad anymore, but sometimes you just have this sense that soon enough things will be just fine and that's enough :)

So - back to the blogging minus the sentimentality. Tonight I discovered my calling (in regards to sports anyway) is boxing. I am seriously addicted to punching and the instructor was impressed with my form and strength tonight and asked if I'd been practising - she doesn't impress easily. Nope, not practising, just had a wee bit of built up steam to let off :) ANyway, given the fact that boxercise doesn't require any catching or throwing and I can't let the team down by scoring in the wrong net its just the sport for me :) Today one of the women on my team brought back sweets from NY City incuding - oh yah - Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Yum!

forgive disjointedness of this post :) See below :)

Below is a post I started last week and am only finishing some of the details may be out of date, but only a few people would actually know that, and even fewer would really care...

Totally ripped this 'fill in the blanks' off Jen's blog, but she ripped it off Shannon Comeau's..and SHannon has the same initial as me, so all is good, and I am obviously v. bored, just like Ms MacPhail has been as of late...

2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING? The Da Vinci Code - sooooo gooood!
3. FAVORITE BOARD GAME? Pictionary (with Mom as partner - unbeatable!)
4. FAVORITE MAGAZINE? Blech - I don't really have one at the moment -will say National Geographic though because it makes me sound educated and refined, even though I'd be more likley to pick up Glamour..
5. FAVORITE SMELLS? Freshly baked anything, Issey Miyake& Davidoff Coolwater perfume and chocolate
6. FAVORITE FOODS? Strawberries, apples, tomatoes, lasagna & candy (in no particular order)
7. FAVORITE SOUND? A car revving (that is SO a guy thing, but whatever), the sounds of nature minus humans (best heard in the woods behind my Dad's house), certain music and certain accents (of males)
9. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP? Did I sleep through the first snooze? What day is it?
10. FAVORITE FAST FOOD PLACE? Subway, if I have to choose, although I v. rarely visit Fast food places at all
11. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME? Hahaha (not a name..just a thought). OK, OK, well, first off em thinks this is something one must consult with their partner on but anywyas - In keeping with family tradition of keeping same first letter for all children - Evelyn & Elliot ....or...Alistair and Alice/Alison.
12. FINISH THIS STATEMENT. "IF I HAD A LOT OF family & close friends would have no debt/plenty of luxury, I would be self-employed and the world would be explored thoroughly.
13. DO YOU DRIVE FAST? Not now, when I was younger maybe. Never really owned a car that could drive fast without rattling and shaking...
14. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL? Sigh. Oh what does it matter- yes, yes I do and he travelled around Europe with me. Think less of me if you wish, he makes a good pillow
15. STORMS-COOL OR SCARY? Cool if lightening & thunder are involved.
16. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? A Burgundy Honda Accord
17. FAVORITE DRINK? Choclate milk, even though I rarely have it..or Diet Vanilla Coke.
18. FINISH THIS STATEMENT, "IF I HAD THE TIME I WOULD... get in touch with my spiritual side, join Green Peace (no, seriously) and start a business.
20. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE? A deep red, or maybe a shimmery dark blue....
21. NAME ALL THE DIFFERENT CITIES/TOWNS YOU HAVE LIVED. North Granville (the sticks), Kensington (almost the sticks), Charlottetown, Long Creek (the sticks again), Ottawa, Dublin & Edinburgh..does that really make me a transient??
23. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH? Hockey - although I've almost given up o the sport- too many teams in the NHl - not so much about skill anymore, plus, heck they don't even have a season this year!!
24. ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU. Just one? Jen is a fab friend whose ability to approach distressing situations in a calm and logical manner and give advice without judgement is so refreshing!
25. WHAT IS UNDER YOUR BED? Pillows and empty boxes from parcels that Uncle Mike & Schemida sent me.
26. TOILET PAPER/PAPER TOWEL-OVER OR UNDER? Not even on a dispenser....
27. MORNING PERSON, OR NIGHT OWL? Oh how I wish I could be a night owl, but the years are taking their toll on me. Not that I am by any means a morning person, although in comparison to Keri, whose bleary-eyed appearance in the morning can be a bit disconcerting, I'd have to say I do quite well


29. FAVORITE PLACE TO RELAX? At home in front of the fireplace (winter) or outside on the patio in the summer
30. FAVORITE PIE? Graham crust with fresh raspberries and a raspberry glaze topping

What is that it?? Geez I don't think I copied all that over...anyway, that's all she wrote for now folks. Hope everyone is doing well - write when you can.
