some things you can't invent.

so, it's been a week since Drinkball, and I'm in no mood to do a full recap on it.

Thusly: it was awesome. I got loaded on Jack Daniels, kicked some balls around, threw a frisbee, had a small amount of quality time with Payne (which I don't do enough of and would like to fix), had a particularly amusing fall, managed to not vomit, and ended the evening watching The Wall at Jon's. Which happens to be right. next. door. to The C&C Awesome Factory.

The rest of the week has been a blur of school/work/school/work/etc. The only vaguely interesting things that happen at work happen in the AMS, and I can't talk about those, so, um, zut. I did have an interview for a fifth job with International Student Orientation, which I thought went well, and then I had to take myself out of the running because the PNE gave me a bunch more hours.

which leads to the next point: I'm working Monday/Wednesday/Friday at the PNE for the entire month of July. Somewhere during that month, I have EA group interviews to do. I still give the Thursday tour. And we all know I'm not leaving the AMS.

lost some weight, too, although having roughly a third of my pants collection no longer fit sucks.

so that's me in a nutshell: busy and slowly becoming skinnier.

ISO at UBC? I did that last year! That is, Sept 2004. It was a blast for me... mainly cuz I took my group drinking and stuff cuz the sessions were so boring. In fact, the first day of the 3 day orientation, I started drinking rum and coke (6 shots in a 600ml bottle) at 8am, 30 mins before meeting my group, and drank the entire day til 11pm. of course, I did share with some of my group members :-)

Drinkball sounds fun.
