birthday weekend

Thanks to everyone for their birthday wishes and picspams of pretty boys and virtual gifts!!  It was all so appreciated.  ((hugs everyone)) 

Friday -- co-workers took me out for lunch after N declared LOUDLY that it was my b-day LOL  Crazy girl.  But I'm glad I was in the office then being stuck by myself at the clients in the sauna-like boardroom

Saturday -- dentist appointment, ooooh fun.  Then got an oil change (which was waaaaaaay overdue), more fun.  Headed into the office for a couple of hours before going to the CA grad dinner (our firm purchased 2 tables so I decided to go this year).  My god, I've never seen so many accountants in one place before.  There was probably around 4,000 of us plus another 1,000 of significant others!  I never went to my CA grad dinner so I figured I should check it out at least once.

Sunday -- did some research on courses and discovered that UofT's con ed dept offers not only full courses but "mini-courses" too (ie the course ranges from 1 - 8 sessions) which is great cause there's no exams/assignments, it's cheaper and I can squeeze in more classes instead of spending the entire 4 months in 1 class.  There's one called "Great Inventors & Their Inventions" which I'm going to sign up for.  There's a Jane Austen course but it's an afternoon class *criez*   In the afternoon, went to Holt Renfrew just to check out some handbags.  Of course, all the bags that caught my eye were in the 4 digit range *headdesk*  And then I purchased a Gucci wallet.  I am such an impulse buyer -- if something catches my eye, 90% of the time, I buy it right then & there.  Walked out of Holt quickly before I totally lost my mind, left an "OMG I JUST SPENT $$$$$ ON A FREAKIN' WALLET! WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING?!?!!" message on R's voicemail, got a mani/pedi on the way home and now I'm posting!

I also started reading again \o/ !!!!  I must've started 4-5 books over the last few months but nothing grabbed my attention and I didn't continue with any of them.  Went to grab a book yesterday to prepare for waiting at dentist office and service centre.  I picked up Phillip Pullman's "Ruby in the Smoke" as I figure I should read this before I watch the BBC adaptation and I'm hooked!  What a relief.  I miss reading.

Off to make some dinner, throw a load of laundry in and get ready for some Oscar/TAR watching!  Hope everyone had a good weekend!!

Re: Happy Birthday!!
BD was a quiet one but that's the way I prefer it :)

I don't usually look at high-end stuff but put in a designer store, I always find that stuff I like are the more expensive ones *sigh*

I can't get into reading - except slash fanfic!!

LOL I completely understand! I went through a period where the only thing I was reading was Brokeback fanfic. Man, there were so many good writers in that fandom. I'm still lurking in the comm hoping that some of the WIPs will be completed some day.

Many happies! Also, yay! for productive days. 'Inventors and Their Inventions' sounds like great wads of fun.

I also totally hear you about the bag dept at Holts - last time I was in there I fell hopelessly in love with a little confection of velvet scraps and lace that turned out to be worth about $350. Sadly, hanging about staring wistfully for a full ten minutes failed to produce a kind handsome stranger willing to buy it for me on a whim. Curse you and the expectations you create, romance movies!

I was so excited when I saw that Jane Austen class... then I read the "time: 1-4pm, Wed" BOO.

This was my first time in Holts. So many pretty bags! And ugly ones, damn there were a lot of ugly ones LOL!

WHO ARE YOU????

*notices (a) Jonas icon and (b) all caps*

OH HI =) Seriously, I did have a split second of "who's...?" LOL I'll get used to it... eventually.

Spend money on school first. Then you can spend it on stupid things like over-priced wallets.

BTW, did you watch the Barbara Walters special with the Bros? I only watched a bit but which one has diabetes? Is that Nick?

LOL I CONFUSE EVERYONE LATELY :D :D :D

And yeah, I watched the Barbara Walters, and it IS Nick with the diabetes. He's the youngest in the band. And also, my favourite. SHE WAS SO SRS BZN I THINK THEY WERE FRIGHTENED OF HER. XDXD

I kept thinking over the weekend, "Crap! It's Shing_'s birthday! Gotta remember to wish her a good one!" And then I forgot. :( Sorry. But I'm glad to hear it was good! :D

Happy belated birthday (pretend Matty is singing Happy Birthday). I suck- I knew it was while I was away and meant to program an e-card delivery or something and dammit I forgot. Glad you enjoyed yourself.

Gucci wallet? You go girl!

I wonder what a Matty Nay birthday song would be like? Probably hilarious and full of swearing which means AWESOME!

That Gucci wallet. I paid too much for it but damn, I think it's just so nice and pretty *pets*
