that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

live from VICTORIA it’s tuesday night!

Substantially better mood the last 72 hours. I fixed my computer… rather, my cousins did which was fantastic. So unless Travis decides to add some extra zeros on the blank cheque I signed over to him, I am a lot happier than if I would’ve had to buy a new machine. It was a fun day, helping Chrissy pack up dishes and just being a nuiscance to them but I figure the favour will be returned one day.

Last night was the season premiere of PRISON BREAK!!! After an unreal fresh salmon meal by Auntie Sylvia, I came home and sat on the edge of my seat for an hour (as all of you Prison Break watchers know, it’s ridiculously intense). A couple friends from home came over and I think it’s now going to be a Monday night event… I mean, what is better than 4 fanatics congregating for 60 minutes in a week? Not much. (You know your life is lacking in much meaning when your blog is consumed by make believe!)

We get our counter tops installed hopefully TONIGHT. Then BAM, sink, dishwasher… all we need is power hooked up and you all will be getting dinner invitations. Still no sign of Dan but I am waiting in anticipation for that.

School is good… UVic is completely my pace, style, and comfort for the time being. The people I have met are absolutely fantastic and EVERYONE thanks the bus driver when they get off the bus! Like, who does that? As I was saying to TandC, I am learning. It’s like culture shock from being in Alberta.

On that note, I got off the bus in a different area today, assuming that I was being more effective if I got off at a different spot and walked home, rather than getting my transfer to the next bus (since I need two to get home). Turns out the road we were on kept going farther and farther AWAY from where I needed to be and I guestimate that I walked close to 18 blocks in a full circle (since I don’t know where I am in Victoria still…no roads make sense)…. before walking another 10 home. Are you embarrassed for me? I am.

That’s about it for now I guess. I just got home from the gym and I am about to eat a salad… have I mentioned how fired up I am about being able to COOK???
