Awesome Things

I’ll try to avoid being repetitive in future, but when I love something, I love it.

Today I am excited by one of my favourite websites, and felt like sharing it (multiple times through twitter, blogging and facebook, but no matter. :) )

It is a wonderful website that just blogs about everyday things that are just so..AWESOME. There’s no other word for them. They’re things almost anyone can relate  to, and so funny.

Some of My Personal Favourites

#771: Waking up before your alarm clock goes off and realizing you’ve got lots of sleep time left

#779: Getting into a bed with clean sheets after shaving your legs

#796: The sound of rain from inside a tent

#810: Returning to your warm bed and comfy bed after getting up to pee in the middle of the night

#815: When you nudge the person snoring next to you and it makes them stop [or cough really loudly..this worked on my dad last weekend :) ]

#828: Remembering what movie that guy is from

#836: When you push the button for the elevator and it’s already there

#854: Crying. :)

#856: The Perfect Chicken Wing Partner [definitely a fave, SO GOOD]

#866: When the gift receipt is already in the box.

..and so many more. Check it out for yourselves! Such a cute site.

Rainforest SOS

Rainforest SOS: A new endeavor by Prince Charles of Wales hoping to save the Rainforest by working with governments and non profit organizations for funding of an emergency package and other means of protecting the rainforests.

As a citizen, the most you can do at this point is really spread the word, give your support by signing up and inviting friends and learning more. There is soon to be a new feature where you can record your own frog message like the ones recorded by celebrities and athletes around the world.

It’s a really good idea to support the fight against the destruction of our world and our rainforests. Wouldn’t you like to see them first hand one day? Well take one look at the widget at the top of the page counting up the thousands of metres squared of rainforest that have been destroyed per second you watch and you’ll see why it’s such a huge problem. I signed up so that I can do or learn all I can about the issue.

Our world is so important. It frustrates me so much when I hear people say that they don’t care or don’t believe what’s going on; that they’ll be gone soon anyways. But I don’t want the future generations to die because of our mistakes or be left to pick up all the pieces from this time in the world where everyone has these ideas to save the planet but it seems the message isn’t getting through to some. I almost want to laugh because hopefully in a couple decades all of this limbo will seem ridiculous, and the future will not be able to understand why we couldn’t get our act together and make things better. There’s a lot to fix, but I think we can do it if we try! I hope that we can fix up this world to be brand-spankin new.

C’mon people, don’t be lazy stupids.

Sick Days

A blessing and a curse.

I was home sick today due to an incredibly sore throat combined with a cough and the fact that I wasn’t really doing much at school anyways. It’s been quite nice to relax.

Here’s what I did: woke up late, watched four episodes of The Hills, drank gingerale, had soft-boiled eggs, went on the computer, had fruit salad, wrote a couple notes, didn’t publish them, had a spoonful of honey, tweeted the day away, downloaded firefox, got overwhelmed, had a text war, never got out of my scrubs aka pjs.

Lovely. What do I plan to do the rest of the night? Throw in some firefox addons, watch a movie, read a book, eat food, sleep. So nice playing hooky.

What works for a sore throat? Lots of vitamin C, echinacea, honey, cough drops, apparently gingerale, salt water gargle, and fisherman’s friends. But I can’t bring myself to eat any ff just yet. They taste like crap.

So the blessing part of being sick: sleeping in and chillin.

The curse part: you aren’t allowed to go to the premier of Star Trek with your friends since you were too sick for school. drats ma.

Ah well, lonliness is okay with me.
