Edmonton -> Calgary... Tool and Cowboys!

So... the next update.... My trip after my arrival.... I basically got home... tried to catch up (aka scare) as many friends as I could, before leaving for Edmonton to go see TOOL!! So me and Jen left bright and early..... and realized everytime we got over 120km/hr there was a weird shaking/knocking sound comming from the front right tire... so I pulled over... was about to investigate when something splashed in the water next to me!!! Now, its like, 4:30 am and pitch black, so needless to say, it scared the crap outa me, and we kept driving.... so then its knocking over 110km/hr, and then over 100km/hr.... so its light enough now, that I pull over, and discover that this little protector cover that fits next to the wheel to protect probably the ball bearings..... has fallen off, and is in the process of being shredded by my car. So I pull it off, and we make it to Edmonton.

So we check into our hotel, The 4 Points of Sheridan. Our room was a standard room, with 2 queen size beds.. untill we got a complimentary upgrade to a king size bed suite. SOOOOOOOO nice!! It had a leather couch, 2 flat screen TV's, 2 dressers...... tres nice.

Now its off to the TOOL concert... first we decide to stop and get a burger at this cute burger joint.... where this portugese guy hits on Jenny unmercilessly!! So we get to the TOOL concert, and Icis opens for them.... a band from Detroit, good stoner music, they were alright. But then TOOL steps on stage... now I fear that my words will be unable to express how amazing this concert is, so I shall have to keep it short. They opened with Stinkfist (my fave) and it was just pure amazing music for the next 2 hours or so...... it was bliss. It was just pure TOOL.... *sigh* and before you knew it, it was over.

Now after it was over, me and Jenny spent the next hour walking in circles trying to find the car... see I took us out the wrong door, and then she led us in the wrong direction. The good part was we got lots of excersize. Once finding the car, we headed off to Whyte ave to meet Aaron!! Aaron, is Jenny's really good musician friend from Williams Lake who just moved to Edmonton. It was awesome, it was my first legal bar experience... you know, where you willing give up your ID and they LET you in.... so much fun, we hit up a few bars, I had a Shirley Temple, in which I lost my cherry..... and then I stole Aarons cherry... it was really funny. We all danced, I was given a rose by Kevin (Aarons friend) with which I gave to a girl on the street, who said she wanted a rose.... was great. Till we got into the car..... Kevin (who was SMASHED by this point) was trying to give me directions to an after hours bar (the bars close at 2 in AB) and he was like, left, no right, no no.... deffinetly left, driving me nuts.... and then outa nowhere, some drunk driver smashed into me..... he only hit my front tire however, which was good, taking off the hubcap and shredding two of the bolts...... no biggie. So we get everyone home and to bed.

When we wake up, its time to leave for Calgary!!! Now we did the same thing to Jen that I did to most of you in town.... just, showed up, it was aweosme, she was tlaking to the ppl at the front desk, so I leaned on the desk on one side of her, and Jenny did the same on the other side, and she was all WHOAAA!!!! ha ha... it was great!!! So we chatted, hit up Kensighton Ave for some Gillato, and Sushi.... and that night we went somewhere I've wanted to go for a long time..... Cowboys Bar!!!!!! SOooooooooooo much fun!! Even Jenny danced to the country music, tho they didn't play just country either!! We had lots of fun, I got good and tanked, and we took a cab home, stumbled upstairs, and me and Jen decided we needed Pizza..... so we ordered Pizza, watched Sex and the City, and passed out!!! Great night!

So we were SUPPOSED to go home the next day, however, we hadn't seen Spruce Meadows yet, and I wasn't leaving Calgary without doing that... so we all got our hungover asses ready, and got into my car, and headed down the lane of 30 McDonalds...... Ok, it was actually called MacLeod Trail, however there were like, 30 McDonalds, 20 TimHortons, 6 Boston Pizzas 2 Walmarts, 3 Superstores, and many other things all on this one stretch of road.... it was crazy!! Anwyays..... we got to Spruce Meadows..... it was amazing...... at the risk of saying blasphemy in Jenny's eyes.... it was more amazing than the TOOL concert... I was at the CENTER of my universe..... where all those greats have been, where Big Ben and Ian Miller showed the world how it was done, where any rider, who was ever anyone has competed.... it was such an overwhelming and amazing experience...... I was so filled iwth Passion, and emotion, it was just...... pure extacy. We hit up the tack store, and I got a couple little nick nacks, and a tee shirt..... and this horse, who is the funniest thing in the world. Showed Jen and Jenny the horses, and we headed home again.

That night, we also caught up with my roommate from the summer Darby!!! Now, i won't dwell on it to much, but we spent the night in what we've named the fortress. We'll leave it at, she has a very nice house. Oh, and Jenny and Jen were excited that at one point that night, they were in the presense of Prada. It was great tho, I really missed that girl, its crazy how different we really are, yet how close we are b/c of the experience we shared!! We all watched Moulin Rouge!! Was great, amen to surround sound, b/c me and Jen we singing along at the top of our lungs, but Darby and Jenny couldn't hear, and still got to enjoy the show!! It was wonderful... kinda funny to, me and Darby shared a bed that night, and it was actually the first night Darby had been home (she had to set some stuff up in Victoria, where she lives) so her first night at home, she woke up with..... ME! Again! Just like good times!!

Well.... that takes care of my trip, now I just need to update you all on my Nashville night, and I think I'm all caught up!!!

Still looking for a name for my mom's business..... seriously, ANY ideas would be useful, apparently she's not big on my suggestion of "Crazy Horse Tack and Apparel" so ya.... any ideas are welcome!!! *hugs* to everyone,

Love always, your favourite boost drinking chipmunk face,

Wisdom... or lack there of

Well.... I have a feeling updating my blog is going to take a few psots so we'll start with the most recent...... My wisdom teeth.

So for those of you whom I haven't seen since I got back, i apologize, but I'm really not in any condition to be seeing ppl..... I had my bottom two wisdom teeth pulled, and at the mo, my face is so swollen, I look like i've gained 20 lbs... in the face... or like I"m storing food for 10 squirrels for a whole winter in my cheeks. Its not happy.

But lets talk about the procedure shall we... everyone I know has been put under when getting wisdom teeth removed... everyone I know... Except Jen, who got accupuncture, much against her wishes. I however did not.... they just froze me alot. Oh, but did you know that in my family our nerves are in weird places, so freezing doesn't always work? I didn't feel anything tho... while she cut, prodded around... right up until she pulled the tooth out..... I still had feeling in the roots. Fuck. That hurt... alot... However, my tongue and chin, and my EARS were all quite frozen for quite some time... but when all that wore off, the pain I had been feeling all day, was NOTHING..... i was in so much pain I thought I would puke. Blah....... such a joyous experience. Oh and for the record... the T3's aren't actually helping me...

So... all in all, its quite fun.... before my cheeks entirely puffed up, I had quite the masculine looking jaw...... now I look like an overweight man!! lol!! Feel like a chipmunk, its kinda funny in a twisted way. I'm living off boost now, and to feel like it was actually breakfast, I had a mocha flavoured boost, which really just tasted like ass.

SO, to all my dear friends, unless you're going to drive out to see me, bearing gifts of sherbet, or other such things, i shan't see you till school starts, or the swelling goes down.

I'm not even sure if thats spelt right...

However.. I'd like to point out a whole bunch of things...

1) its been a mere ten/eleven days (a fraction of the weeks, and/or months it takes some of you to post...)... cut me some slack!!
2)Last week, I was working 16 hours a day
3) This week I'm doing paperwork from 7/8am-9/10pm
5)My phones being a bitch, and I can't get onto blogger...

So I borrowed Lily's computer to tell you all to leave me alone :P

I'll post when I work less than 90 hours a week!

(good news!!! no organs have shut down yet, and I didn't die when we went clubbing in Nashville, nor have i killed any of my teammates... hurrah!)

(I HATE paperwork.... alot...)

Field of... Schemes?!?

I forgot to tell everyone about my fun day, following ashlee! We were working country, which always makes of so happy... Especially at this time of the year, the corn is being harvested, the tobacco plants are huge, the little farm kids all have fruit and vegetable stands... But it occured to me, i've never stood in a cornfield before... But with ashlee i definitly got to... Not only stand in one, but i got to pee to! Lol. There's a lack of public bathrooms out there, and we had a hard time finding anyone home... So we went in the cornfield, tres fun! Was also cool, because the area we were in had a modern windmill farm set up! They were converting wind energy into electricity... Those with picture cell phones can see a picture of it, and i'll see when i get home if i can upload them on to the computer.. Well... My last saturday of work... In fact only three days of sellin, three of deliveries, nashville and homeward bound!

Electrical storms of doom!

On wednesday i stayed over in london, and there was this CRAZY thunderstorm... At first it was just lightning in the clouds, which looked so cool... No thunder... Then we could see the lightning touching down across the horizon... Then the rain came, and the lightning was right above us, thunder came instantly... Soooo crazy.

in randomness... While i was gone, my roommates were laughing about how my body is shutting down one organ at a time... Its funny because i'm begining to wonder if its true...

I can't take this heat.. seriously... I feel like I'm drowning, just by walking... DROWNING!!! Is that natural??!?!? Its sooooo gross, I feel so drained, and dying, and sticky... at 11 o'clock the temperature was recorded with the humidity at 48' C..... its supposed to continue to climb untill 3 o'clock!!

In randomness (or.... not) I'd really REALLY like a pet squirell... for serious... I think it would be a lot of fun. They keep such good company on the bookfield, imagine if I had a real one at home. I would really enjoy it i'm certain :D
