Well I've been a little scarce the last week. It's been very busy with stuff and events. While it doesn't look like it's going to get better at work, I have less commitments social-wise LOL. Funny how everything always happen at the same time, don't you think?
The next day was a bit better. I was so exhausted, mainly because I had just started my periods. My back was really killing me ^_^; We got permission to start work late and leave early! That is really rare if you know my boss ;) It was a good thing as well, because my friends and I had tickets for Totem, the Cirque du Soleil new show. It's the same company that produces O (which I had the chance to see with Ames), Ka, etc. in Las Vegas. Totem consisted of a series of acrobatic acts and while it was not as impressive as O, it was still very enjoyable. It's truly amazing what these artists can do!! And they kept upping the ante LOL. I think though what sets Cirque du Soleil apart from other similar shows aside for the high levels is the costumes and the stage. It was really awesome how they used the stage, it really was part of the show and converted into so many things. My only complaint though is that there was no storyline in the show... so it felt a bit choppy because of the humoristic acts in-between the acrobatic acts. Nevertheless, I had a very nice evening :)
Finally, last Saturday, we organized a condo-warming. My friend bought a condo and it was finished in January... but she took her time choosing the colors, the furniture, painting, etc. LOL. She finally completely moved in only 2 weeks ago :P Since it's been a while we haven't gotten together, we also celebrated three birthdays :) Among those birthdays was my co-worker S's. S is the only guy in the gang and being the only guy, well sometimes, he gets spoiled... which is what happened on Saturday. We have a friend whose brother has been living in the States and has learned all about the turducken. You have to understand, I don't know in the rest of Canada, but Thanksgiving is not big in Quebec province. For most of us, it's just another stat holiday... and most of us are Asians, so comes Christmas, we dont' really eat turkey ^_^; Anyway, my friend's brother made turducken a couple of years back and after she told us about it, S said he wanted to try it... So that was his birthday present, turducken :) Of course, we didn't stop there and there was tons of food. We really had a good time... except I drank some alcohol ^_^; I'm not a big drinker and this just goes to prove it. We were playing mah jong and instead of counting points, we decided that whoever lost would have to drink a sip of something. Seriously, I should have stuck to coca-cola like my friend suggested ^_^; Instead, I decide to go with everyone else and drink Schmirnoff Ice. It was okay in the beginning... It's when I decided to finish it off - I had a quarter left - that it went wrong ^_^; I basically went very, very, very red and my heart was beating sooo fast! So yeah, no more alcohol for me for a while LOL.
And so, that's why I haven't posted much last week... This week though, I have nothing on my agenda :D All I want to do is read, blog, try to go for sushi and gelato :) It's fun when it's busy, but it's good when it's quiet :D
