"I was once a treehouse; I lived in a cake, but I never saw the way the orange slayed the rake." I said this last night and my sister was like, "what??" Heh, so I told her is was a song. Then she sent me this joke:
During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the
criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be
"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a
teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty
"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the
bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."
"No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want
a bed near the window?"
Okay, so those were the good parts of yesterday. I was highly stressed because my mother keeps changing the plans of when she is going to drive the truck with Leah's stuff out to AB. Originally she was going to leave 2 days before us so all her stuff would already be there when we got there. Then she said she isn't bringing the truck out until April! WTF?? After talking about it, Leah and I figured out that maybe it would be better that way, since we would actually have time to save up money for the truck + fuel and have more money for the trip and Leah would have money for phoneline and apartment deposits, etc. Well, then the next time she calls back, my mom says she is driving her van with a trailer hitched to the back. This is BS because originally she said they couldn't use the van because it would break down. I started getting upset because my mom was telling my sister that she wouldn't be able to bring all of her stuff and that she would have to get rid of a lot of furniture. This upset me. In the first place, I think Leah would be more comfortable with the move having all of her stuff with her, but first my mom says she can't bring it out until 4 months later, and then she says she can only bring half. This is really making me upset, but Leah said she is going to tell mom just to relax and that we can't afford a truck right now until the new year. I hope they don't get into a huge argument over it. *sigh* All of this is so frustrating and I don't understand wtf my mom is thinking.
Besides all of that, I now have all of my stuff (minus a vase of dried flowers) in my room in Welland, and I think I can function with the setup. I spent several hours sorting out my Lego collection, and I am not missing any parts, so I am happy about that.
Tonight, I get to tell the choir director that I won't be able to make the majority of engagements this season. This is disappointing in that just last week she told me she misses my voice when I am absent. *sigh*
The dentist yesterday was good. I had a hygenist named Jenn and she didn't ask a lot of questions so yay. (That's the part I hate the most, is when they ask about your personal life.)
Oh, and since I haven't mentioned it before, I am reading Sophie's World. It is interesting and a good refresher of all the philosophy I learned in university. Still trying to figure out how the teacher time travels and who Hilde is, but I've got quite a way to go yet.
