mmmm, blood and penis
So we went to Body Worlds 3 at Science World on Sunday morning at 4am. We bought the tickets in advance, since they were selling like hotcakes, and it's a good thing we did, because they were all sold out! It was so weird, being the middle of the night and so many people at science world. There were even little kids there, which we didn't understand, because why would you bring your 6 year old to see something like that? They wouldn't truly understand what they were looking at, for one thing, and I doubt they would even understand enough to be amused at the numerous penises and testicles, as younger kids would be. The cross section of the penis was not as interesting as I imagined it would be. They had ovaries too, with tumors, but not with cysts, which I would have loved to see, since I get them. There were some exhibits where there was only the blood vessels of a body part so you were looking at a kidney-shaped blood vessel bunch. They also had a rooster like that, which I liked but Matt found creepy. Then there was the embryo section, so you could see each week what a baby looked like inside, and some that were premature. There was the lung cancer section, which was sooo gross. There were healthy lungs, and then lungs that were black from all the smoking the owner of them did. Yick! Anyway, I am hungry, so I will be cutting this short.
PS. I think I had an ovarian cyst burst last night at 5am. I woke up to such pain in my abdomen, but nothing like the previous 2 times. Yay, cysts! I am always worried that the pain I feel could be my appendix filling up with poisonous fluids, readying to explode and kill me, and not a cysts. That'll be the day...

The search continues! And Salsa!
Saw an apartment I didn't hate today. The only thing I am hesitant about is the rent, and that is only because I have never lived on my own before, and have always shared the rent with someone else. I realize that I will have to trade thriftiness for satisfactory living conditions, but whatever. I was initially thinking of getting a bachelor's suite, because I liked Sharon's place when she was living in one, and they are a bit cheaper. After giving it some thought, though, I do need at least a one-bedroom. If I lived in a bachelor's suite, I would become soooo lazy, since no matter what part of the room/apartment I went to, my bed would be right there, and look so inviting, and be so warm and comfy.... So, I have vetoed the idea of a bachelor suite. Also, I think Alfalfa would grow weary of me in a bachelor, never being able to get alone time.... or maybe she'd like someone always being there, I dunno! She is a freakishly needy cat some days. Speaking of which, I really have to clean her cat box today before I go to sleep....
P.S. Bought some sandwich pocket thingies, and shoved in some turkey, cheese, lettuce, green pepper, and salsa, and I have decided that salsa makes everything taste better. I approve of my new creation!

So, went looking at places for rent yesterday, and I must say that I don't understand how it is that landlords expect to actually find someone willing to pay money to live in some of the places we saw. Seriously, it boggles the mind. I wonder, would it be a good thing, an eye-opening experience, to list off all the atrocities you see? That way they can at least fix the things and not get fined by the health board.
-When you open the freezer to look at the size, it should not smell like rotting food.
-Outside the main entrance should not smell strongly of cat urine.
-Try actually cleaning the place before showing it!
-The unit should not smell of curry.
-People will not pay $850/mth for 2 bedrooms that together equal one normal size bedroom, and no discernible eating area or living room.
Oy! Back to searching.....

Better be a happy new year....
-I am moving. Again. And this time I won't be moving into a crappy delapidated crack shack with a landlord that barely remembers he owns a house and only comes once a month for rent and doesn't return calls or answer his phone. And I hope I won't be moving into a place where the person(s) above/below choose to be assholes and purposefully wake me up in the middle of what is my night and then yell at the person who asks if the giant dentist drill noise can wait a few hours. Fucking ridiculous!
-I have decided to take the winter semester off, seing as how the last semester was such crap, not only schoolwise but homewise. I need to move, get organized, start making changes. Depending on a lot of things, I may take the summer semester off as well. I will be in school forever, so what's another semester?
-This year, I want to save up a couple hundred dollars at least, so I can be one of the crazies who line up outside Future Shop all night.
-I had an awful dream the night of New Year's morning, and it was so stupid at the same time, but still made me cry. That's not normal! I had an odd dream this last night, but can't really remember it.... I think there was a kitten in it? I don't know.
-I need to start hanging out with people again. Not-crap living conditions will help that. I don't like having people over to a house I hate. Takes the bloom off the rose, if you know what I mean.
-Need to start buying lottery tickets, so I can buy a house each for me and my mom. And cars. Cars that work. And a mini-house for all my moms 7 cats. And a maid to clean up after her and her cats. Yeah.
