Singing in the Rain

Coming home from school today was pretty bad. Since it was all nice and warm this morning, I had decided that I didn’t need my hoodie today. Of course, since God seems to have a sense of humour, He obviously decided to send rain today just for that reason. Or maybe not – but anyways, all I had was a nice t-shirt to wear home. And of course, the 4A bus I normally transfer onto had to come early, so I missed it at the mall. I just rode the #2 bus down to Dunsdon St. and got off there, but that’s still about a 10-minute walk in the rain.

As I look back, I suppose it wasn’t too bad. It wasn’t pouring rain, just lightly raining, and it could have been a lot colder than it was (as it was, it was just above the temperature where I would have started shivering). And I’m also glad that I at least saw my bus going by, so I didn’t get off at the mall thinking it hadn’t come yet. Otherwise I’d have to either walk home from the mall in the rain or wait half an hour until the next bus. Neither prospect would particularly appeal to me. So anyways, it wasn’t too bad, just an added unavoidable frustration. Oh well, that’s life I suppose.

I’m not sure what else to talk about right now. I imagine Steph was having a pretty bad day today. Apparently her dad drove away…Continue Reading

Early Phone Calls From Giant Green Monkeys

Work · · Leave a comment

I figure since I’m going into work tonight, I probably won’t have much of a chance to blog afterwards, so I might as well do it now. I was originally working from 5-9, but Cheryl (the boss’s wife) called me at about 9:00 AM – waking me out of a restless half-conscious sleep – and asked if I could come in early, for 3:30. I agreed, and then just got up since there was no point in going back to bed after getting up to answer the phone. I’m pretty sure I know why they called me in early. Kim was supposed to work some wierd shift today, but on Thursday she said she might call in sick, since she wasn’t feeling well and it was like a 3-hour shift anyways. Oh well, if it helps her out, that’s great, and it’ll give me the cash for an extra hour and a half of work. It’s not much, but money isn’t my main concern anyways.

So anyways, the roads are pretty bad, and we’re going to have leave early to get to work on time. I doubt Paul could really get mad for me being a few minutes late, considering he can look outside and see the weather, and also because I’m doing him a favour by coming in early to help his other employees out. I mean, you can’t yell at someone who just agreed to help you. And besides, I’m on his good side. Anyway, since we’re going…Continue Reading

Bus Rides and Hot Chocolate

Personal · · Leave a comment

Okay, this is just getting stupid. I missed the bus again today. Today, though, was likely my fault, but whatever. I saw a bus at the mall bus stop so I went up to the front and asked the bus driver if he could let me onto that bus. He dropped me off on the street and then I crossed to wait for the other bus. I got on and said, “Thanks,” to the bus driver and then sat down. We got to the first intersection and then turned – and I realized I was on the wrong bus. It turned the opposite way, because I had gotten on the 4C instead of the 4A. Ugh. So I got off at the next nearest stop, which was by Wendy’s, and then walked home.

Today was pretty much the worst day ever to have to walk home. I mean, I’ve had to walk when it was boiling hot out, but today was freezing cold, and it was twice as bad. When I got home I looked at the thermometer and it said it was minus four degrees Celsius out there, but with the wind it was just crazy. It was blowing straight into my face for about the first 10 minutes of walking, which is not exactly fun. I’m still sniffling and It’s been over half an hour since I got home.

So I got home and read 1 Peter 1, which is the next chapter in my Bible reading, and…Continue Reading
