Holy monkey! it's about time I updated!
Weekend was awesome~! Here's what happened!
Was picked up from my house on saturday morning (8:30am) by Jackie, her parents, and Whitney (RIGHT?!), and drive down to the Yorkdale mall in Toronto. Took the subway to the Spadina station by Bloor, walked from the station to China town, bought a whole bunch of AWESOME stuff~ ( the list )
Had lunch at Kom Jug Yuen, same place as always, so gooooood~ :3 There was also some sort of Anti-Communism protest thing going on, since people in China were being persecuted for practising Falun Dafa
, so I got a bunch of pamphlets from people about it, and a dvd of the 2007 Chinese New Year spectactular! I haven't watched it yet, but man! Cool! There was also a guy on the street playing an Erhu (SQUEE!), but he wasn't that good at it. I gave him some money anyway. I SUPPORT MY FELLOW ARTISTS!
It was raining while we were walking back to the station by Bloor, so we got kinda soaked, but oh well. Good times! Took the subway back, and I gave a bunch of money to a guy playing guitar in the walkway thing of the station at Yorkdale. I'M SO FREAKIN GENEROUS. He was good though. And he was like, "Thank you so much!" D'awwwwwwww! :D We got back to Barrie, and kinda sat around reading our manga, then we had dinner (it was crepe things... right?), then went and watched Millenium Actress. Yay Satoshi Kon! It was pretty good, though also slightly confusing. Read some more manga, talked a bit, watched Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, talked some more, read some more, then went to sleep. Watched a bit of Shaman King in the morning (episode 9 and a bit of 10), then left for Toronto again.
Wonderland! :D Jackie's brother Kevin came with us, and we got there pretty early, around 9 or 10am I think... and went on some rides, the Italian Job rollercoaster, and Whitney and Kevin went on the Minebbuster as well. We sat out of that one. XD Made out way over to the water rides and waited for those to open. When they did... man! We were SO there. Possibly the greatest rides there (White Water Canyon and Timberwolf Falls). We got SO SOAKED. My jeans were so freaking heavy from the water but who cares! Fun! :D Jackie and I did the Star Trek 'live long and prosper' signal to the one guy in the tower who controls the first geyser (since we were pretty sure it was the same guy from the last time we were there.), and he was like, '...I'll try.' He's a good guy! We kept yelling stuff at him. XD Fun fun! Went on that about three times, though they didn't let us just stay on the raft thing like last time. Oh well!
Walked around and went on a bunch more rides like Thunder Run, the Wild Beast, Spinning Cups, and... um.. what else? Haha! Brain is starting to fail me. Kevin got lost for a while so the three of us hung out and played some games, I ended up wining nothing. Haa~ We found him later, he went on The Bat, but the line for it was so long he ended up waiting that whole time that we were looking for him. XD Later on we went to a show that they were going, "Swining to the 60's"! It was pretty good, but most of the songs were fron the EARLY sixties, so it was really fifty-ish music. Oh well! Kevin skipped out on it to go on some rides, but joined us later since it has started POURING! We waited in the tent where the show was for a while until it died down, then we left and went to have lunch at Subway, since everything in the park is so expensive. Played some more games, bought a bunch of candy, Kevin and Whitney went on some rides that Jackie and I didn't... walked around for a while, then went back to Barrie. :3
Ate some pizza and ice cream sandwiches, then went and read some more manga! XD Watched The Producers later on, then Whitney went to sleep, but Jackie and I stayed up and made plans! Plans for super revival and perfection of our Shaman King OC's! Yay! Also working on creating (read: re-creating) a character for our team. Whee! Talked about that for... a couple hours, actually, then went online for a little bit. Good stuff! Went to sleep a bit after that, then got driven back to my house in the morning (around 9), by Jackie's mom. Then I went to sleep! :D
NOW! Today I went to a funeral, since Mike Rekis' mom died a couple days ago. Boo. Went to Toronto to the church on Jane St., then went to the cemetary. I don't remember/know the name of it, but it's the same one that Dedo is buried at. After the burial we (my family) went to Dedo's grave for a bit. The moths were crazy, so mom and I walked around for a bit looking at the other graves. There was a really nice one with a lotus on it. I think I'd want my grave to have something pretty like that on it. :3 There was a HUGE Chinese one, and it was like, for an entire village in Guangdong! It only had two people's names on it though, but their birthdates were in the late 1800's! Awesome! The woman (wife, I'm assuming) lived a long time too! And she looked pretty good (there were pictures of the two on the grave)! We walked around a bit more and saw a grave with red writing on it, so we went and checked it out, and majorly creepy! It was another Chinese one, and it had the man's side filled out, but the woman's side (her name and some other stuff written in Chinese), which had the red writing, her name was Winnie! That happens to be the name of Mike Rekis' wife, who is Chinese, so mom and I were kinda weirded out by that. Left the cemetary and drove to the Latvian Center, where the... whatever-its-called was bring held, and ate there. The food was really good, but the pieces of beef I got were really fatty. Ew. Hung out a bit there, and it started raining super hard again, so we waited a bit before we left. Now I'm home! I mean, I didn't just
get home, but... yeah.
So that's pretty much it! You're all caught up now, yay! This was a pretty long entry! Wow! :O
Oh yeah! I got some stuff from OSAP in the mail, so tomorrow I'm going up to Georgian to hand it in or whatever. Also probably getting my picture taken for my student card, then going to the bank to change my account type. I'M SO FREAKIN BUSY!
