Right. The ramblings in my head. Sometimes they're so odd.

Today I had a feel good moment with my south neighbour. He knocked on my door and happily asked if I had a garbage bag he could use. I asked him if he needed big or little and he said big. So I said I had some and when I got to my pantry, I noticed that I only had one left. But without even a second thought, I gave it to him. In response he said "Ahhh, thanks, Julie... you're a LIFESAVER!"
That made me feel good. I saved a life today. Because of a black garbage bag. ;OP
Tonight I'll have to go to the store and get some more, I guess.

I think every woman should have at least one vibrator. It really takes the edge off those long lonely nights... or revvs you up pre-sex. Imagine if it were a pre-requisite to turning 16 to have your own vibrator... the amount of babies that WOULDN'T mistakenly be made, because your daughter would be home in her own bedroom alone instead of experimenting with the real deal.
I'm probably lucky to have a son. I think I'll give him a box of condoms for his 16th birthday... and hope they go old and crusty before he gets a chance to use them!!!

He was loved, and he will be missed. I didn't know him well, but he loved me anyway. He was a very dear and kind soul. I shall shed many tears over his loss... not just for myself, but for all the people I know who were close to him.
For those who loved him and are left behind, be strong, shed your own tears, remember his smiles and laughter and have him live on in your hearts.
That's all I've got right now...
Love Julie :'O(

I super love orchids. I used to think tulips and daisies were my favorite flowers (and they're still way up there), but lately it's been the vast selection of orchids that I've seen around and about that have really tickled my fancy. I really love their delecate and intricate features. I've always wanted some, so I saw these and decided to buy them. They're not real, unfortunately... I didn't want my cat jumping up on there and eating them. I'd have been devastated! Especially since they usually cost a fortune.
I've also always wanted a birdcage. I don't want a bird, I've just always wanted this style of cage. As for the pink box, I intend to use it to store my little bit of Indian jewellery, safe and sound. That's my son the day after he was born in that photo.. it's now above my bed on a shelf on the wall.

Anyway.. thought it was probably worth mentioning that I've managed to get rid of 15 pounds and now am the weight I was 2 summers ago. I won't say I "lost" weight, because normally people are sad about losing something, and I'm certainly not sad that my clothes are fitting better. It's not the best shape I've ever been in, but I guess it takes time and a whole f**kload of energy to get rid of it once it goes on! If anyone asks me how I've lost weight, the answer will be: blood sweat and tears... and eating healthy and less.
I've actually had to completely cut sugar out of my diet recently, which is easier than one might think. I'm not having sugar cravings of any kind, though it is a bit difficult to find foods that don't cost a fortune that still taste better than a slab of bark. Anyway, the no sugar thing should help me drop some more weight.
Onward and forward!

Incase you still didn't get it:
Holy Hannah!!! This nasty big assed white hair was catching the sun's rays today like a pro fisherman catches bass! I was just looking at my lips in the car mirror and WHAM. Out of nowhere it hit me. A giant, knarly, twisted, half white half brown, half thick half thin hair. If you can call it a hair. It looked like a pube more than a head hair... well, if I were to ever let my pubes get out of control long, I mean. It was N-A-S-T-Y. Still, I contemplated leaving it in as a sign of my life... I've never thought I'd be one to die my grey hairs away, so I left it there for a while and then it got the better of me and I yanked the thing right out. Look at it. Have you ever seen such an ugly hair in your life? Come on. I couldn't leave it in and ruin the rest of my appearance. Shame it was so gross looking and spazzy. I might have left it there just so I could look distinguished.

Strange past time, I think... and I'm not sure I'd have done it if it weren't for the boys being with me, but it was sort of a fun way to spend a cold afternoon.

On Easter Sunday my sister and I went to the 1st annual Jashan International Bhangara Competition in Calgary. And let me tell you... it was spectacular!! An absolute gorgeous feast for the eyes, ears, and soul. The music was loud and ever so rhythmic, the dance teams were dressed in India's finest dress, every single person in the competition wore a giant smile and completely exuded pride in being there. There were some very clever moments, touching moments, and moments that filled the whole audiance with edge of your seat excitement. As a bonus, after the 8 teams that competed were being deliberated about to see who'd take 1st, 2nd, and 3rd we all sat there being treated to a mini concert. An Indian Rap duo sang 3 songs and that was followed by a soloist who sang 4, I believe. The judges still needed more time to make their decision, so after the mini concert, just random people from the teams and the stagehands, etc. started to sing and dance mixed to the beat of the ultra cool Dohl Drum beats. It was so amazing! It was my first Bhangara Competition and I tell you now, I can not wait to see it again next year!!
Unfortunately, the photos were hard to take in the auditorium, but I got a few. This one is enough to get a glimpse of the amazing colors and culture. And I've also included a video clip of a bit of one of the dances.
Just... WOW! What a fantastic opportunity to experience another culture and to take in the astonishing dancing, colors, sounds, and truly soul energizing music. Plus, it gave me an opportunity to wear some fantastic jewellery!
