Has anyone seen the re-release of Haruhi from this year? Apparently they released it in chronological order with new episode inserts. Sounds dubious to me; I'd prefer a sequel. Anyone know anything?

Okay, who wants to read my long post of doom!!? *thunder*
No one? That's what I thought. Oh well, this journal is for my recollection as well as social interaction, so I'm going to post anyways.

On Friday, I came home to discover that someone decided that the dent in the car needed to be fixed and took it to the shop. Also, my mom was gone the whole evening and Amy informed me that Mom was at a church woman's retreat. Since those things usually last the entire weekend, I assumed that car was gone the whole weekend too. I couldn't get a hold of either parent at either of their numbers and I knew my Dad wouldn't be home until about 11. I can't drive the standard, so I ended up calling the stable and telling her I couldn't make it because I had no idea how I'd be able to drive out there. I felt so terrible. Of course, my Dad called me back an hour later, which was half an hour too late to call Debbie back and my Mom ended up not spending the whole weekend at the retreat. The world is against me.

So, instead of sleeping on Friday, I watched QaF (I'm missing the last disk of the season!!), Stargate (yes, I finally watched the season finale. Anyone want to explain to me how the swords work?) and Cardcaptors.

I slept a good long time because I figured I may as well make the best of it. Then my Mom invited me to attend a funeral with her (I'm missing out on the stable for a funeral?! Oh boy!! *eyeroll*) anyways, it was actually rather interesting. I didn't know the guy but he was 91 and he swam at the Winter Club a lot so my Mom kind of knew him (one of her hobbies is lifeguarding) and she learned after he died that he's also the step dad of someone in our church and the uncle of someone else in our church. (Rae, if you're wondering, Dale Bergeson and Linda Campbell respectively. I saw Jolene for the first time in forever).

After that, my Mom also dragged me to watch my dad curl in the 'Curl for the Cure' event. It was kind of cool - the way it works is that each team of 4 gets given a pro curler to be part of their team. My dad was curling with Alberta's Scott team's Lori Armistead. While I was there, I met Lori, all of Canada's bronze medal woman's team (I got to touch the medal) and a bunch of other people whose names I don't remember. I also managed to get waved at by Cindy Klassen who was there as part of the speed skating curlering team. Everyone there was drunk and having a good time and dressed in the most outrageous costumes. I wish I was around in the fall when Rachel and the gang learn to curl. Anyone in Guelph think curling lessons would be a hoot?

So then I went home and booked my flight to Guelph (May 7th, 11 am) and talked to Caitlin about furniture. Then I read Catwoman and watched Flight of the Pheonix and Avatar. I also saw Justice League, which was hilarious. Lex allowed someone to take control of the JLA's females and force them to fight each other. Huntress and Canary managed to hold out against Wildcat and Hawkgirl, but Wonder Woman almost killed all four of them before they managed to shut down the operation.

Sunday involved getting together with Kat and Nikki at Nikki's house to finally finish watching Tokyo Mew Mew and we started on Mai HiME.
We ended up at Anne's for dinner and had a blast. They gave me trades where all the men on earth die ^_^ and I stole Anita Blake because it's been too long since I had a vampire fix.

My mom's leaving on Tuesday for a bit and I'll be in the field on Thursday ... I think I'm going to let others make all my long weekend plans for me. Although, someone please tell me that I can get very drunk on Thursday night? Anyone? I'll plan that (although I don't know where to go) if someone will come with me ...

For anyone in exams, good luck!
