What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Eastern New England. Whether or not you pronounce r's, you have the sound of Boston, New Hampshire, and Maine about you.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

I wore braces for a year, but only on the top row.
I was going to be named Nicholas if I was a boy.

I've never broken a bone (but I've broken my sister's wrist before).
I once went out with a guy 2 years younger than me (it did not work out at all).
I have five piercings.

Goofy's son Max hit on me in Disney World when I was fourteen.
I miss Doctor Quinn, Medicine Woman.
I'm still close friends with about a third of my high school graduating class.

I had the chicken pox when I was 12 and couldn't walk for two weeks from it.
In kindergarten I wrote on a kid's hand with pencil and then burst into tears when he told me he now had lead poisoning thanks to me (not true, obviously, but I didn't know that!)
My airways closed up when I was 8 from gulping down two glasses of apple juice.
I hold a pencil differently than most. (My mom was taught the wrong way and so she taught my sister and I the wrong way too. I can't reverse it, either)

Just got back from a mini-vacation up in Maine. It was... okay. It rained a lot so I couldn't go tanning or swimming or anything :-( But I went shopping and finished a book I was reading and whatnot. It was nice to get away, I guess. It's so quiet up there (except for these loud drunk adults who were singing karaoke on Saturday night... don't ask).

I've been reading a book on Canadian History (*shrugs*) and was surprised to find out that Jacques Cartier and Henry Hudson both were pretty much assholes. Very shocking to me, since they are so highly regarded. Interesting.

Oh, in Maine I got some adorable clothes for my friend's baby (who is due in a little over 2 months!). Her baby shower is next week, I believe. It was really fun baby clothes shopping hehe :-D

Okay, boring update, I'll do better next time, promise ;-)

New LWD podcast up at http://www.family.ca/whatson/famclub/lifewithderek/podcasts.php# if anyone is interested. Mike Seater is so hot, it's a pity he's so obviously gay. Quite a disappointment for us girls, anyway.

Walked around the city today with my sister, it was a nice change from working... it was my first day off in like a week. I made an appointment to get my hair done Saturday with my friends. Three of us need our roots touched up and the other is just getting it styled... then off for our fun night! :-D I got a cute little purse to match my outfit for the night, it's so adorable.

Been reading a book about repressed memories, and it's kinda creepy. I think I blocked out whole chunks of my childhood.

I bought a TV tuner online today even though I'm not even sure what it does. It just sounded cool. And apparently I feel the need to have it soon because I got the "rush shipping." No idea why.

not dead [15 Aug 2006|08:14pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Wow, I'm not dead! *gasp* Things have been crazy, I've been going to parties and working and trying to live up the summer before it gets taken away from me so damn quickly!

My cat has been being harrassed by our other cats in my house so I had to rescue him and now keep him in my bedroom with me... thank God it's a big room so I can't really smell the stupid litter box. Gah. But ya gotta do what ya gotta do, right? I mean, it got to the point where they started attacking my cat and we found his blood on one of the bathroom's walls. Ouch. So he's happy here with me now :-)

My mum's happy with a new boyfriend... I'm dreading them getting married (which my sister and I are sure they will eventually do) because he has custody of his two kids... childhood friends of ours turned kinda...ugh. We're not exactly all "chummy" anymore, you could say. So if they do get married, it most likely won't be for another few years, when the youngest two (my sister and the girl her age) are out of high school. Sigh.

My dad got a place about twenty minutes away from our house. I don't see him that often. I don't really care to, either.

My sister went to theatre camp for most of the summer. She did a bellydancing show that was unbelievable (I was like where the hell does she think she's going dancing like that?!) and she did a performance last weekend that I went to...some musical. She was pretty good at it. I wonder if she'll go into acting.

I stopped babysitting those two kids because the little girl (who's four years old) kept telling me she wanted to kiss my boobs. It was a little more than uncomfortable. Yeah...

I still baby-sit for the other three kids once in awhile, but they travel for most of the summer so I haven't seen them that often. They go to Virginia and North Carolina and Florida and stuff.

I work at a little bookstore now and it's so cute! I really enjoy it... I've also started reading again, which I have neglected to do for the past couple of years. Now I'm going through about a book a week, go me! I just finished Running With Scissors and heard that they're coming out with a movie about it, which will be neat. I like seeing it come to life.

My friends and I got a hotel in Copley Square for the last weekend in August and we're going to party like what as our last hurrah of the summer :-D Should be fun. We all bought dresses and shoes already... I'm totally gonna take pics ;-)

So maybe I'll start updating this journal again. God knows I love to ramble about stupid, insignificant things. Doesn't really matter if people read it or not I guess, right? :-p

just in case there's just one left [03 Mar 2006|10:41am]
[ mood | frustrated ]

Wow, I've been MIA for a long time. I have to catch up on all my friends' entries and such. It's been crazy here. My dad is going to rehab today *rolls eyes*, he's leaving in a few hours I believe. In Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Luckyy. I'm sick of the cold here. He's probably just going to end up visiting his wrestling buddies, though, because a bunch of them live down there. Sigh.

My mum's pissed off so I've been spending a lot of time with her. I took her to the salon yesterday and we both got highlights and trims. We were there for like 4 hours, but it was worth it. My mum seriously looks like she's about 8 years old lol. I was like "mum, you look hot" and she was like "...aww, and I have nowhere to go tonight!" so guess where we ended up? Just the grocery store. lol. It was freezing out, plus we needed to pick up some more food for my sister, since we're trying to cram weight onto her tiny frame so she doesn't end up in the hospital. She still looks like a stick, but she's starting to gain weight, slowly but surely.

I started baby-sitting for another family--a friend of the kids that I baby-sit for. They have a 3 yr old boy, a 4 yr old girl, and an 8 yr old boy. And I'm not going to lie, they are BRATS. The 3 yr old (Nathan) has random temper tantrums that last for hours. And the 4 yr old (Courtney) never sits still. Gah. So when I come home from baby-sitting them, I like need a 3 hour nap lol.

Other than that, there's not much else new. I got my nails done a hot pink that I thought would look ridiculous but turned out to actually look really nice. Eye-catching. And my hair has more of a layer to it, and it's an even lighter blonde now. I like it. I've been watching American Idol, and I love that guy Chris--the one who sang Fuel's "Hemorrhage". Such a good voice, no? And Kelly Pickler is adorable! Question... was Paula drunk last night or what?? She was slurring and couldn't sit up straight and just seemed to babble about chicken or some such nonsense. I swear she was under the influence lol. Wow.

That's about it, hopefully I'll be back again sooner than another week :-o And I hope everyone's doing well, I'll be reading my friends' journals soon! :-) Take care everyone.

one of your friends made just a little slip, so i'm gonna take a little trip of my own [23 Feb 2006|06:16pm]
[ mood | sore ]

I went to the allergist today for what I thought would be a consultation only, because I'm going to get tested to see if/what anasthesia I'm allergic to. But then she told me that she wanted me to get re-tested for my environmental allergies--and they could do that today. So I said that that was fine. I had been tested before, when I was like 8 years-old, so I've had the scratch test before. Basically what they do is scratch your arms with little needles and put a drop of an allergen (for example, dustmites or cat fur) on the scratched skin to see if your skin reacts to it (leaves a hive--an itchy red bump like a mosquito bite). She did about 24 of them on my two arms, like on the insides of them along the veins. That didn't really hurt, but it wasn't pleasant. Surpisingly, I'm not allergic to as many things as I was when I was little. But it showed up that I was allergic to red cedar trees, oak trees, and extremely allergic to birch trees (I got a HUGE hive there--oh my God it was SO itchy I wanted to scream!). The red cedar tree was something new, but I knew I was allergic to the oak and birch.

Next, they had to retest all the ones that didn't show up (no hives) on my upper arms with a stronger dose of each allergen. This time, they were actual injections. 21 of them. And they HURT. Like cringe and close your eyes hurt. And wipe away the blood hurt. Ugh. That was awful. But anyway, a few more showed up--I'm allergic to both kinds of dustmites that there are, and mold. Yeah. But I had to walk around the hospital after with all of these hives and black dots (where they marked with some kind of a black marker where they put each allergen) all over my arms. Ridiculous. Then, I had to walk around the hospital (with my mum, who had come with me of course) to find the stupid lab to get a blood test because they want to test me to see if I'm allergic to latex. Sigh.

And the guy who gave me the blood test was extremely obnoxious. He kept asking me these stupid trivia questions about Presidents and geography. I was not amused because of the stupid pain in my arms. But thankfully, after that they said that I could go. I have to come back in a couple of weeks to be allergy tested for general anasthesia. Then again for local anasthsia. Then again for food allergies. Ugh, I don't know if my arms can take all of that! :-/

That's all for now, I'm going to go scrub the black marker dots off of my arms!

I thought this might be fun...

[get to know me meme]

This is the problem with LJ - we all think we are so close, and while we know about the day-to-day, there’s still a lot we don’t know about each other. So let’s rectify it.

I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. I promise, I will not make fun of you, or say who asked what; I won’t divulge any social security numbers and stuff, but I’ll try to answer everything.

I then invite you to do the same. Remember, seriously basic stupid questions, don’t be embarrassed, you would be really shocked what I don’t know about you.

You can leave an anonymous post if you want to, even :-)

Just came back from the doctor's office, yuck. My sister and I both had appointments at the same place but with our different doctors. She had a physical and I was just feeling icky (again, le sigh). Turns out I have a sinus infection, as I expected. As soon as the doctor came into my examining room, I was like, "I have a sinus infection." lol. So she prescribed me antibiotics that I'll start tonight. Hopefully I'll start feeling better soon.

On another note, my sister's doctor called my mum into the examining room because she is concerned about my sister's weight. My sister is almost 5'4" and only 91 lbs. So now they're putting her on this weird diet thing and she has to come back to have her weight checked again next week. Poor kid. She has been getting really skinny lately, though. Hopefully she'll start packing on those pounds!

My friends and I were going to go to the Museum of Fine Arts and out to dinner, but I had to cancel on them because I lost my voice. Wtf. That was disappointing :-(

Oh boy... you all are gonna love this one. So today I went to *drumroll please* the auto school of my city to get my license :-o I had to wait forever and I got so nervous that I 1)started going the wrong way on a "one way" street and 2) went thru a redlight. Yeah. Now, I am actually a really good driver, and been driving for years. I just kept putting off getting my license because of my nerves. They always seem to get the best of me during times of judgement... like this for example. And the SATs (another story altogether lol).

So, basically, I bombed the road test.

I batted my eyelashes and flashed the young police officer a dazzling smile, telling him I would be more cautious next time and it was just my nerves.

And he passed me.

LOL I can't believe that he actually passed me. Haha, wow. I'm still chuckling over it. Silly officer :-p

But I have my license now! :-D

There is no Office on tonight so I am completely bummed. Today was quite productive, however. I did about four loads of laundry (I still have like two more to do lol) and cleaned my bedroom! It looks nice, if I do say so myself. My sister is sick with a stomach flu or something...her fever went up to 104! And now my mum's sick, but with something else. She thinks its pneumonia. Either way, she can't really talk, and the two of them have been in bed for the past couple of days. They've been really cranky about it, too. Hmph. So I've been trying to stay out of their way!

It was such a nice day out, too. I opened the windows in my room and it still didn't get very cold. And the sun was really bright :-) Reminds me of the beginning of spring... sigh. I wish the winter would hurry up and be over. Who's with me? :-p

I just had a really weird moment like fifteen minutes ago. I was sitting in my room watching Roseanne and I decided I wanted to have some cereal, so I went in the downstairs kitchen so I could finish watching Roseanne while I ate. As I went to the kitchen, I walked by my sister's room. She was watching Roseanne too. And then I walked by my mum's room and she was watching it too. I was like "..." It was just so random. I could hear the three of us laugh at all the same times, lol.

So apparently everyone in my house watches Roseanne :-p

my head's in the game but my heart's in the song [12 Feb 2006|01:11pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

I'm back. I survived almost 24 hours with the three kids. Barely. I started going crazy towards the end with the lack of sleep. I mean, I slept for about four hours. I was going to sleep in the guestroom, but I ended up falling asleep on the couch in the living room (watching Law & Order SVU lol), just as I figured that I would. The house is quite big and makes creepy noises at night. Plus there was a dog barking next door that was really annoying all night. And the kids got up at 6:45 AM! Gahh, that should be illegal to wake up WILLINGLY at that time on a Sunday morning. So still half-asleep, I had to make them breakfast. John, the oldest one, (he's 8) wanted to make blueberry muffins. Of course. So I had to help him do that. I told him to put in half a cup of water, but I shouldn't have assumed that he knew what that meant. I think he put half of the measuring cup instead, making it a full cup, and so the muffins turned out very...watery. And we couldn't find the muffin tin, to top that off, so we had to use a cake tin. So it ended up being a watery blueberry muffin cake. Nobody really ate it.

It has been like blizzarding outside all day, so luckily John went outside to play. The other two (Calvin in almost 3 and Katie is 6) refused to go out. So I had to keep entertaining them, which I don't mind, but it was sooo early, gah. We watched High School Musical and a few episodes of Phil of the Future ;-) They love both :-)

Everytime I cleaned up a room, they ended up messing it again. So I had to keep cleaning the same rooms over and over again because I didn't know when their parents were gonna be home. They ended up coming a little after noon. When I heard them coming, I told the boys to quickly grab the food they were eating and run into the kitchen because they weren't allowed to eat in the living room, which they were doing because I didn't feel like fighting with them. And I had to tell Katie to quickly put on her glasses, which she is supposed to wear all of the time but hates them so even though I begged her to wear them, I felt a bit bad because they had been bent the day before and now were very lopsided on her face. So she refused to wear them. So when the parents came in, they saw the boys eating in the kitchen and Katie with her glasses on. lol, good timing, huh? :-P

Now I am completely out of it and desperately need some sleep. I guess the $135 I made is worth the exhaustion. Plus, the kids DID sleep about 10/11 hours, even though they got up mega-early. I guess I just like to complain :-p

Okay, I'm off to take a much-needed nap. Bless those who actually managed to read this all.
