Je fais le tricotage.

When I knit, I'm not thinking about anything.

Je pars pour le Canada a partir du deux novembre.

I posted this pic around this time last year. I was looking down at mom's garden today and found same flower everywhere. (lazy to take new pics)

My trip is coming very soon. Kinda packed. Kinda planned. Wrote down all the #s which friends gave me, but haven't put them in my cell phone yet. Scribbles everywhere. I'm usually neat and right on time kinda person. I find that I'm like that when I'm busy. I mean when I have lots to do, I do things good. Fast and very efficient. But not right now. I have 24 hours all for myself. I can sleep 15 hours if I like. (which I've never done... can't do) Or read for 10 hours. (which I do pretty much everyday.) Last couple of months, I tend to procrastinate everything important. I like to plan things, though soooooo much time in my hands, soooo little to do. I just gave up planning things. Like doing puzzle. You only have 3 pieces but there's 12 blanks. You don't know what to do. You know what I mean?
... this week should be better. I only have 3 more days till my trip. I will unpack and re-pack to check I pack all things I need. Have a lunch with friend. Have a doc appointment. Going to a bank. Call some people before I go.

Things I probably need to get when I get there.

I've been watching Supernatural season 1. (done 12 episodes so far) I love the car. I don't really care about cars, but somehow I think the car they are riding is so cool.
I watched Proof today. I really liked it. I like Jake. :)
I got my ticket yesterday. My first E-ticket... my travel agent told me I don't need to bring anything except passport to get the boarding pass. Somehow feeling weird. What if they say "well, we don't have any reservation under your name ma'am."
My travel agent for... last 5 or 6 years, she's moving to different office. All others at the office in my town, they are all new. Well, they are not new new, but I mean I've known/seen them when they were rookies. Can't trust them. And they make me do all the stupid paper works which my current agent never asked me to do. I might just buy the tickets online from now on...

Last Time

It was baking.
This time it is...

Knitting. I use crochet needle, not two knitting needles. I started to make things last Friday. It's been a week. Other than those two, I made another water bottle holder for my mom. (1st one is pot holder) I only have one crochet needle, so I should get more. Then I can make some other stuff. Next project would be either a scarf or a knit cap.
My vacation from vacation is coming in less than 2 weeks. Finally I started to plan things. My visit to Vancouve is all set now. (thanks to Z. can't wait to see you.) My schedule in Toronto, it's not as tight as usual. I can still make some plans or I just do whatever I feel like in that moment.

Fun Stuff

You Are Emerald Green

Deep and mysterious, it often seems like no one truly gets you.
Inside, you are very emotional and moody - though you don't let it show.
People usually have a strong reaction to you... profound love or deep hate.
But you can even get those who hate you to come around. There's something naturally harmonious about you.

You Are An ISTJ

The Duty Fulfiller

You are responsible, reliable, and hardworking - you get the job done.
You prefer productive hobbies, like woodworking or knittings.
Quiet and serious, you are well prepared for whatever life hands you.
Conservative and down-to-earth, you hardly ever do anything crazy.

You would make a great business executive, accountant, or lawyer.

What Your Soul Really Looks Like

You are quite expressive and thoughtful. You see the world in a way that others are blind to.

You are a grounded person, but you also leave room for imagination and dreams. You feet may be on the ground, but you're head is in the clouds.

You believe that people see you as larger than life and important. While this is true, they also think you're a bit full of yourself.

Your near future is likely to be filled with great successes and accomplishments. You just need to figure out how to get there.

For you, love is all about caring and comfort. You couldn't fall in love with someone you didn't trust.

You Are Iris

You are an interesting blend of fun and wisdom.
You definitely make people think about themselves and their place in the world.
But they'll have fun doing it. You definitely epitomize laughter therapy.
You are a very enriching and entertaining friend!

You Are A Realist

When it comes to romance, you tend to take a realistic approach.
You believe that love takes time, and it's something you have to work hard for.
A bit cynical, over the top romance tends to get under your skin.
Your heart is difficult to win ... but it's totally worth it.

For you who's kinda bored at work...

While I'm sitting on my bed reading or laying down on my bed listening to music. I can smell this... with smells of the sun.
Today's another beautiful day. Very warm. (maybe too warm for this time of the year) I opened all of my windows and leaving the door open. Cool air coming through.

Thank you...

Brilliant movie. I just love it. I like Aaron Eckhart. I love him more though. He's very cute. And a scary thought... I could've been able to have a kid in his age. haha...

It's October. I guess time flys. It's been 2 months since my unemployment.
1 more month then I will have a vacation from vacation. I will go and get tickets in this week. Then I'm pretty much all set. Packing and planning are my favourite part, so wouldn't be any problem... :)

While I was in Osaka, I went to GAP to get some stuff. (wanted to buy a new white shirt and Megu and I always go shopping whenever we can get together.) Then I found posters of Aaron Eckhart. They were very cool. (I made one of the pics my computer's wallpaper) Funny that I was just thinking to watch "Thank you for smoking" when I was at the GAP store. I found more cool posters at GAP site. I didn't see Jeremy Piven's in the store though.
