Morning? No, I must have slept in…

Today I woke up at 6 and freaked out.

I had slept through the entire day! What the hell? Why does this happen to me? I also wondered why I wasn’t too hungry, but dismissed it.

Also, My friend had asked me to grab her some booze since I’d be going to the LCBO anyway (and, since she lives in Ottawa, her parents want her to visit tonight :S), and I didn’t do it!!! Dammit! So I texted her to say sorry.

Then I checked my e-mail, checked Facebook, all the usual things, and wondered why there was so little activity.

Did no one actually notice that I was out of action the whole day? The hell?

I checked the date, and sure enough it wasn’t the 11th anymore. I checked my texts, and the last ones were from yesterday…

Then I noticed that there was more light than the usual coming from my window.

Oh.

Oooooh… I see…

When I checked my phone to check the time again, I finally noticed the little AM next to the time.

Oh….

Then I realized just how BAD that is. Aside from the not checking for am vs pm thing…

Yes, I freaked out appropriately about the sleeping the whole day.

Then I freaked out about not getting booze…

I feel more like a university student this morning than I have for a while…

I also realized that I hadn’t even considered that it might just be 6am. That it might be morning.

I skipped that possibility entirely for the OH MY GOD reaction of having slept for THAT long.

I also just had to text my friend again to say that Never Mind, I Was Mistaken About The Time…

So this will be interesting meal conversation later…

Jeez…

So here is my Fail of the day. Hope you all enjoyed 😛

I think it’s pretty funny, even though I’m not looking forward to being teased about it later today 😀

Happy Thursday.

On the Road again… Can’t Wait to get off the Road again…

Ottawa is awesome for a number of reasons.

Universty of Ottawa is also awesome for a number of reasons, but the reason I’m thinking of right now is that there are two reading weeks.

I am currently on the train, heading hoooome. It’s about a 5-6 hour drive from Ottawa to Toronto, it’s about a 5 hour train ride 😀

The reason why Ottawa has two reading weeks is because the people who run universities are looking at the stats and noticing that more and more students are committing suicide.

It is for this reason that you can only open your residence window so far, and also the starting point to the awesome idea that is an extra vacation time.

I got to the train station reeeeally early (leaves at 12:20, I got there at 11), and almost got onto the wrong bus to take me to the station…

Buses have a long history of trying to screw with my mind, and the instructions on Google Maps said to get onto the 95 bus heading to Orleans, and the sign on one bus said “95 Trans” with a smaller “Orleans” underneath it.

Thankfully I hesitated before getting on, and that told the bus driver that me getting on was Not To Be, and the next 95 bus said ONLY Orleans on it.

I then asked someone else with a suitcase where the Via Rail station was, they pointed to up a hill and across the street.

Ok.

I got my ticket from an automatic Kiosk thing, and then had to go to one of the people anyway because I didn’t know where to go with my two tickets.

Two Tickets?

Yes, apparently I have to go on this hell ride once more…

Aah… I can see Lake Ontario right now…

Or some other lake, but I’m not so great with geography either, so Lake Ontario it shall be.

Did you know that Via Rail has electrical plugs?

But only for the seat closest to a window.

My computer has…

0:32 minutes of power remaining.

Awkwardness is foiling me in asking the girl next to me if I can use one of the plugs, as well as the fact that I’m veeeerrrryyy close to Toronto now, and it would be ridiculous to plug it in for the last 20-30 minutes of train ride left. And no, I don’t trust my battery not to sudden;y decide that it has less minutes of power remaining in the middle of writing this, and I have saved this as a draft about 3x.

Today, everything is out to get me…

When I’m heading home, I am going to do like everyone else who got to the station early did, and put my bag in line while I wait.

I didn’t, and the line was wrapped around the station entirely.

And I didn’t get a window seat.

Something equally as horrible is likely to happen when I go to get my small suitcase and then try to find whatever car my mom is taking to pick me up in, because I love traveling in the sense that I like going new places.

I hate the actual travelling part, especially when I’m alone.

I’m alooone.

Look up all alone by Gorillaz. I’ll add a link later. (HERE)

Because the train is slowing, and I’m home.

🙂

(This wouldn’t load, so this is actually two days after I got back)

I wish I could play…

Many things, actually.

I wish I could play guitar, I wish I had the enthusiasm needed to play soccer, I wish I could play hockey more, I wish I could play violin or any stringed instrument, I wish I could play the saxophone, I wish I could do many things, but one thing I keep getting back to would be piano.

Piano is awesome.

For those of you who read my post You Started It! You might have noticed that I had Daft Punk in there, and I will say now that one of my favourite songs that I still dork out to would be Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, and I just had a thought about what it would sound like on piano.

As weird as that thought may be, I’m not the only one who thought it, and Many people on YouTube decided to put whatever piano talent they have to actually doing it.

I also checked out some of this guys other stuff, and I have to tell you that I’m still a huge fan of hearing songs done in piano–even if they are kind of odd thing to want to hear in piano, such as any of Daft Punks music or any other techno songs.

I’m sure someone’s heard the Mario theme song done in any number of instruments, but I always love hearing it on piano.

Piano, as it is today, could also be on what this guys uses (keyboard) and if you check this guys stuff out you will find that he has a Zelda song on there– I don’t play Zelda, I’ll get that out there right now.
Not saying that I don’t ever want to play it, but I’ve never had a chance to play it.

I don’t have that much gaming experience, though I love playing games. I like the stuff with plot a bit more than the “Here’s a gun, go shoot someone” games.

Anyway, in general I like game songs. I love the tunes in Tetris (which one of my friends recently told me is actually a German song–the lyrics that go to the tune are something about a virgin spinning under the moon or something like that? Someone correct me if I’m wrong), Mario can never go wrong, The songs in Fable are always fun, and any games that I end up kind-of playing (“What? What does this button do agai–AGH! Frig! Shoot!! Shoot damn you!!! Can you punch pixies? Really? It’s– AGAGH! LIGHTNING AT YOU you GNOME-THING!! LIGHTNING AT YOU!!!“) always have interesting music that at one point or another I will look up “+ piano”/”in piano” eventually.

Games are another thing I wish I could play. More often and more well/ be better at them as well. 😐

But Piano is cool. I wish I had been signed up for some sort of musical tutorial in piano when I was younger in one of those ways that I also wish I had stayed in French emersion and became better at French, and in ways that people could wish to go back in tie and do something over again, if only to be better at it this next time (Hello high school math? I’m back to kick your a$$. All Science and Physics, I’ll deal with you in a moment.) It’s mesmerizing watching the hands, and it’s so interesting hearing the differences.

*sigh*

Do you have anything you wish you could play?
