[generic furmeet-related title]

All in all tonight was pretty fun. Things didn't go exactly as I figured they would, but I enjoyed myself, and everybody else seemed to be having a good time too (well, aside from a couple specific things), and that's really all that matters ^^; Unfortunately, there are far too many things I want to write about running through my head right now, and of course I cannot think of where to start, so I'm just going to write one of those long things tomorrow given it's my last day off until Friday (and by then I'd have forgotten most of what happened).

The couple things I will say are that I ended up with a $20 gift card for Walmart and a twenty-dollar bill, so maybe I'll end up combining those and heading out there either tomorrow or on Friday. I am slightly disappointed about just getting money, but Walmart might have something (snow) leopard related that I haven't found yet, so that still works out. The other thing is that I still prefer going there by train and staying a couple nights to getting a ride there and back, but my reason for that can more or less be condensed to not liking the way something was said to me. Oh, and also, apparently by having a tattoo I should be going about flaunting it every chance I get, but I just can't picture that. Drawing attention to myself is something that feels wrong no matter which way you put it, and I didn't get it just to show off. Mind you, I do enjoy showing it to whomever if they ask or express interest, but that's as far as it goes. And before anybody says it, as far as I can tell it is not hypocritical of me to say that. I wear my tails / ears / whatever else to work because it's fun, and also feels right. Not for the attention (yay for repeating myself). The same applies for my tattoo, but without so much emphasis on the fun.

Anyways, the next thing I have to concern myself with now is Heart and Stroke's Christmas party on the 18th, which I still don't know the location of (anybody want to tell me where The Tipped Barrel is?), but I'm going in there on Wednesday, and Michele should be there. It's time I was getting to bed though, but just before that, since I've already sent out a couple emails with this link tonight, pictures can be seen here. I was planning on taking more, but I thought I forgot my camera at home until we got to London, and once there the light on it was being annoying and I didn't want to bother anyone else. Oh well. That's what tomorrow's entry will be for~

How Many Times Can I Change my Mind in One Evening?

At first I wanted to go to Tim Hortons because this is the last night I have off for a couple days, then I didn't because there were dishes to be done, then I did again figuring I could do the dishes when I got back, then I decided not to because I had wanted to go to Walmart but neither Dad nor Mom wanted to go anywhere for the rest of the night, but then it started snowing quite heavily making me want to go again, but then I remembered I still had dishes to do, but reasoned if I left them there Dad would wash them in the morning, then finally went downstairs and saw that there were quite a few tasty looking things to eat, followed by deciding to do the dishes then going there afterwards, which changed to making food once they were done, then I came upstairs and read some things that helped clear my mind a bit, so now I want to again, but I've already had plenty to eat today, and don't want to get up. I'll probably still end up going, but writing this entry comes first.

Today started out quite awesomely (which, according to Firefox's spell-checker, is a real word), entirely from a dream I had before waking up and deciding to get out of bed instead of nodding off again. Sadly, what happened in it falls into the category of stuff I've talked about only scarcely before, and have no intentions to start detailing now, but the fun part is I've been much more... lascivious than normal today. Also, as a random amusing fact, I just went to thesaurus.com to find synonyms for "unfortunately", but typed "thesaurus" into the search box instead. My brain is not functioning correctly :B

Finally made it out to the mall as well, so now the only "gift" I have left to get is something for Mom, and I should have that by the end of Saturday, depending on whether or not Josh gets to me by then. You see, Taco Bell's Christmas party is on the 22nd, and it'll be ending roughly when we'd be closing, so a manager and two other crew members are coming down from London to close. I'm not sure who the two of them are, but the manager is none other than Josh, and I mysteriously have the Saturday and Sunday before that shift booked off, even though I didn't write anything in the book. I do work with him for several hours on Monday though, and I can only imagine what he's going to say about my back if he sees the bit of black at the top of my neck or something, but I'll deal with that if and when the need arises.

Moving on, as mentioned in the first *sentence*, I wanted to go to Walmart tonight, but by the time I asked it had already started snowing, and of course both Mom and Dad were terribly opposed to driving in it. They are open 24 hours, so there's really nothing stopping me from walking up there right now, but that would be a bit extreme considering all I want to do is browse for something furred and / or snow leopard spotted that I like and is less than $40. I almost wish they had actual bolts of fake fur, because I've had the thought a couple times now to make a new cover sort of thing for my laptop with those elastic strips around the edges, to keep it from falling off. That would also make it possible to have more than one too, which could be turned into something else to switch around whenever I get tired of my current visual style and wallpaper selection. The only problem would be that I've never sewn anything in my life, but I can picture how it would probably be done, so yeah. For the time being it seems to be a matter of procrastinating about finding some place in this city that would sell those two things (Fabricland, perhaps?), and going out there.

As for that head-clearing stuff, I would like to write about it, but I don't want to drag the whole feel of this entry down either. It's also 12:30, and I still want to go to Tim Hortons, so I should probably head out now, because I do have to go to Heart and Stroke tomorrow~
