Sigh...  Wednesday off for me.  Need a haircut and to finish up that shopping I am not supposed to be doing.  Tis the season.
On Monday my Secret Santa at work left me a giant dark chocolate bar.  Today it was clues that led me all around the department and finally to my second present, a nice new book. :)  FUN.

Inspired by Julie?

Oh why not? :P

Seriously, I still love you livejournal
Even if I don't post on you...   I swear Facebook hasn't stolen my time... but it is just so damn good for snooping...

Well anyway, just for any of you who don't already know...

Ta da
I'm bored, and not into the current hockey game... so you get this.

Hello Mr. Livejournal.  Remember me?

Probably not.

New job is going really well.  The material is really, really, really dry, but I am mustering though.  Not without complaining of course.  The workplace itself is awesome.  I am really happy that I made the move and I know that I will get the hang of all this financial planning stuff eventually.  They keep saying that the learning curve is steep, and it sure is.  I am starting to make connections and things are clicking, which my co-workers and boss say is impressive.  Woo.  I just have to start drinking more tea to stay awake.  The status of my fellow trainee is at this point unknown, I will know more tomorrow if he shows up.  Ah well, makes me look like a real champ. :P

This month has been very busy. Here's your quick run down:
  • January 1 - Liz went back to Montreal.  Tears ensued; Harvey's was not had by all.
  • January 2 - Started new job.  Everything was ready and waiting for me, shock ensues.
  • January 3-5 - Training galore.  Find out that people actually DO work Monday-Friday, 9-5!
  • January 6/7- Experiencing my first regular weekend off!   Ok it is a novelty for me!
  • January 8 - Crazy shiznit goes down at my old workplace.  Firings/quittings ensue, deluge of e-mail begins!
  • January 8-12 -Soccer (beej), training, illness, beej hurts his back, more training
  • January 13/14 - Second regular weekend off.  Is this really what normal people feel like? Christmas decorations finally taken down.  Hockey skates are purchased, as are fancy new shoes for walking!
  • January 15-19 - Soccer (beej), training, PanAm pool/whatever it is called for track walking.
  • January 20/21 - Tragically Hip concert is better than I had expected, general weekend shenanigans.
  • January 22-26 - Training etc, wash, rinse, repeat.
  • January 27/28 - WEEKEND.  I am getting the hang of this weekend thing!  Watched the show Ed's Up on OLN and saw my Uncles Karl and Martin showing Ed Robertson (of Barenaked Ladies fame) a thing or two about welding.  Pretty cool!  They're really... straightforward guys, and apparently they swear a lot.  Ah well, Ed swore right back at them!  It will be on again on Wednesday as far as I can tell. Liz says I have to record it, so I will.
Watching a lot of the movies we got for Christmas (bold = watched; italics = not finished; regular = not started):
  • Ali G Show: Da Compleet Seeriez
  • Firefly
  • Serenity
  • Clerks II
  • V for Vendetta
  • Follow that Bird
  • Hook
  • Complete School House Rock Series
  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • Empire Records
  • Corner Gas Season 3
Someday I will make a list of all the movies we own.  It'll be a lengthy one.  I took photos and made a list of all my Lush stuff.  I have a lot, A LOT. I may even be too embarrassed to post the photo.  LOL. At least it is a clean addiction?

That's about it I think.  We're going to try to go to the gym/track at least once a week, and we plan to skate this week as well.  My mum thinks I need a helmet, she is likely right.  I'm looking forward to it.  More training rounds out this week and next, and then I am supposedly ready to handle the real thing.  Eeek! 

I skipped soccer tonight, so I should likely head to bed soon.  Perhaps I will update again soon? Je ne sais pas!

Gah!  I am so nervous!

It's after midnight and I officially start my new job today!  Eeek!  I had no idea how quickly the time would fly... but it did!

The time spent with my family was awesome, it was really hard to let my sister go back to Montreal today, but I toughed it out.  I miss her already and now it is hitting home how much I miss my parents.  But we had a fantastic time, and my resignation really let me spend more time with them than we had originally banked on.  My freezer is still pretty full of mum's cooking, and beej and I look forward to getting back to a bit of a normal schedule.  It just seems so very very quiet here tonight.

I finally wrote my mini-bio as requested by the new company, they apparently will be putting that, and a photo of me, up on their Intranet site. It is weird to go from a company that never recognized a single thing their employees did, to one that welcomes you with open arms.  That's a good weird.

Ok, I should try to get some rest, and maybe some more fluids.  Liz ( pezliz) and I decided it would be great fun to have nasty colds for the past 4 days, and I want to be rested and ready for tomorrow.

I just need to get these butterflies in my stomach to fly in formation and I will be all set!

Hope everyone else had a great holiday season, and Happy New Year!  Looks like 2007 is starting out great for me!
