We had a new roommate come in on the second, and she brought two extremely comfy couches with her to replace our old heavy as fuck broken pull-out. And of course, her DVD collection, which I compulsively had to alphabetize and arrange in a way that all the titles could be seen. And she contributed this awesome Fight Club soap to the Shelf of Awesome, and some wicked art for the wall. It took us a week to get everything arranged to fit with all the new stuff (particularly in the kitchen area). I have done so much cleaning recently, but I am seriously loving my house right now.
The blue/green half of my hair had faded quite a bit, and I found lime green (and apparently UV-reactive) hair dye at Shopper's, so it was time for a bit of a change. I am so completely stoked at how it turned out! Because my roots were blonde and the ends were blue, the green bits kinda turned out in a gradient. It goes from limey neon yellow to neon green. Aaahhhhhhhh I love it so much!
My friend Chris recently moved to BC after making the decision a week before he left, and had to sell/give away/throw out most of his stuff. Couldn’t find a buyer for this gorgeous piece of instrument of a guitar, so he gave it to me! Got some other incredibly amazing(ly nerdy) things as well which I'm sure I'll show you guys eventually. Also, the first sticker printing of my Spider-Man piece came in. The corners turned out a bit dark, but it actually looks awesome that way.
Sunday was Maila's birthday. She's five years old now! I can't believe how fast the past five years have gone. We also had a BBQ on Sunday with a pretty big turnout. I live about as North as you can get while still being in Toronto, so quite often people just don't bother coming "all the way" up here, but they did this time! It's nice to actually have a BBQ at the house - haven't in three years!
Went through my high school guitar tab book today. Picked out the songs I wanna re-learn and figured out what bands I even had in there. There's a few that don't have a band name on them and of course I don't recognize the song titles at all, but at least I alphabetized them so I have an idea of the starting letter of the band. I had to laugh at myself when I saw tabs for a song by The Used. Two songs, actually. I also found the first song I ever wrote both lyrics and guitar for, back when I dotted my i's with x's... It's not all that great by a long shot, and judging by the scribbles all over it, I thought so back then as well.
And now, I'm all packed and ready for tomorrow. Soon I'll be on my way to Ottawa for a drunken pit stop and couch to sleep on before heading to Rockfest!!! This weekend is destined for greatness and I am so excited it's ridiculous. I'm going to lose my mind being without Maila for four days, though.
