Zombie Kitty

  • I'm drinking a 3/4 sweet soy salted caramel hot chocolate.  Yes, I am one of THOSE Starbucks customers.  
  • Sadly, I think hiking season has come to an end.  Snow camping anyone?
  • In the past 72 hours I have slept a total of 32 hours.  My bed time is 8pm and yes I am aware that five year olds stay up later than I do.  
  • If you think you've had a bad day, wait until you hear about Butter's day.  Due to a fight induced puncture wound, he got his face shaved and drained by the vet.  We call him Zombie Kitty

Mount Forgotten

What can I say about this hike except that it was unforgettable (see what I did there).

Not because of spectacular views.

Not because of hardcore game faces.

Sweaty much?

Not because of killer trail-mix (Candy corn is a must!).

Sorry about the giant thumb blocking the candy corn goodness

Not because of picturesque lunch spots.

And not because of the awkwardly creepy photos.

Mike said, "look like you are having a good time."  All I heard was, "look awkwardly creepy."

It was unforgettable because we didn't make it to the top.  About five miles in, Mike's hip was hurting so bad that he needed to turn around.  We were really bummed.  How disappointing to come all this way and not make it to the top.  Sometimes Mike and I forget that hiking is not only about the destination, but it is also about the journey.  This trip was a really good reminder that we have physical limitations and that nature is still fabulous, even if you don't make it to the top.

Home Invasion

Have you heard this song yet?  Better yet, have you watched the video?  It is a must see.

Thankfully, I know what is hip and happening.  Don't judge...but I just downloaded the song from iTunes.  Mike made me do it.  Ok, that is a lie.

On to more important things, I have a mouse...or maybe it is a giant nasty rat, or an adorable squirrel.  All I know is that last Tuesday I opened the front door the find the contents of my nut-mix bag spread all over the kitchen, and the bag had a hole chewed through it.  The hilarious/sad thing is that I wasn't the first one of my roommates to find the mess.  One of my "challenged" roommates had already been home.  But instead of concluding that we had a rat/mouse, she just wrote a note on the fridge that said, "Clean up your mess".  Fucking brilliant.  Yes, train wreck of a roommate, I came home, chewed a little hole in my food bag and then flung its contents all around the house.  And then I went over to the window and pooped little black turds all over the place.  Caught me!
I don't know what made me more mad, the fact that I had to deal with getting rid of a rodent or that I live with people who are too stupid to realize we have a rodent.

I know exactly why we have a rodent too.  UBC is full of "brilliant" students, and I am surrounded by them.  A couple of weeks ago I saw my "brilliant" neighbor lining her window ledge with various nuts and delicious goodies to feed the squirrels.  Carrie Bradshaw said it best, "it's just a rat with a cuter outfit!"  I walked away shaking my head thinking, "now we are going to get rats".

Weird, I was right...I guess I am just one of the brilliant ones (no quotations).
