May 30th, 2006

yea.. so i randomly took a trip up to our cottage for a day or so.

why you ask? well.. i had to take the computer that i’m selling to my parents up here… and now that i have some free time… it was the perfect time. (and you are probably asking… free time? wait.. you never have free time! and that’s true.. but i was fired from my job late last week… so now i actually do have free time. i refuse to be worried about things… but only look at the positive side of things. so now i have more time to re-focus and organize my life. 😀 )

oh… i was going to post about this earlier.. but i did get pictures from the friday night gig/birthday party thing… it was AWESOME btw. so all my peeps who couldn’t make it … you really missed a great time. but my roommate jenn took some amazing pictures… so take a look at all of them. (ps. be thankful that i only put up around 300 of the 751 pictures that were taken that night…)

anyways. go look at the pictures here 🙂

well.. i don’t have much else to say… cept the fact that i do NOT <3 dial-up internet. but right now. that’s all we’ve got up here. so i’m gonna go outside or something… 😛

another party!

May 22nd, 2006

hi all. it’s kristen. i’m taking advantage of tracy’s massive connections to post another event that she somehow forgot to mention….AFTER the Friday gig….on SATURDAY night….we’ll be having a birthday party!

(the last party Tracy and i threw at my house, i somehow managed to drink too fast and pass out by 11:30 p.m. i’ll definitely be staying awake for this WHOLE party, thank you very much, and i’d like to share every moment of it with you. teehee, i am so clever.)


email or call with questions, and we’ll see you there!!

my feet are cold

May 22nd, 2006

no.. really. my feet are cold.

so yea.. i am back home.. sorry i didn’t post that earlier.. but i kinda just crashed right after i got home. i had such a good time in dc.. but man.. it just drained me! (and the fact that i came back with over 20 new books IN my luggage probably didn’t help matters much either) i will be posting pictures soon…

but really that’s all i have to say right now. my back hurts.. i think i’m gonna go lie down again… and then maybe i’ll play some more drums. i’m gonna *hopefully* be practicing a lot this week.. ‘why?’ you ask? well because of the upcoming metafour gig this friday of course! speaking of metafour… i made us a myspace… so go check that out and feel free to add us if i haven’t already added you 🙂 and don’t forget to come to our gig on friday. there are three other bands playing that night… and they are all face-rocking awesome. you don’t want to miss it.

ok. enough of my shameless plug… for now anyways. 🙂

May 20th, 2006

i am blessed.

the people in my life have just made this one of the best birthdays ever. i’m so tired.. so i can’t write too much about it.. but lets just say i got text messages / phone calls from four different countries… numerous myspace comments and several in person “happy birthday” greetings. i’m overwhelmed by the outpouring of love that i have received today.

oh and guess who i went to dinner with?



oh how i love that family! i had so much fun with the torbits and ferdi and his friend.
