Bah Humbug

Seriously is it just me or do people turn off their nice switch the minute the thought of Christmas comes around. I hate to admit it but these are my least favorite 2 months of the year...I become bitter and jaded. I just have some advice to all the Christmas shoppers out there:

There are going to be line-ups and you are not the only person who is waiting in them, breathe and enjoy the music.
If the cashier makes a mistake don't not go to them and scream this will get you no where...they will get defensive and be less obliged to help you out.
Now that that is off my chest. How is everyone doing it has been a long time since my last post. Even thought I sent out emails to those who have had a birthday. Happy Birthday to: Auntie Fran, Jason, Bethany, and Kim.
I have rediscovered how much I hate the cold. Seriously, it is evil.

Wacky Weather

Well folks it is November 23rd and I am wearing flip flops to school. I never thought I would see the day where I wore sandals past the first little bit of October...and even that is stretching it. Ian would be ever so proud of me but that might be because he is a little insane and wears sandals during the winter too. I don't have much to say except for I am going into work to book off 2 Saturdays in a row, one for my psyc final exam and one for Jason and Karlene's wedding...I am preparing for a fight. I also need to book of the 19th...I am preparing my 1-2 Combo...I may need it

Stained Glass Masquerade

The words should explain it all:
"Stained Glass Masquerade"
By Casting Crowns
Is there anyone that fails, is there anyone that falls
Am I the only one in church today feelin' so small
Cause when I take a look around everybody seems so strong
I know they'll soon discover that I don't belong
So I tuck it all away, like everything's okay
If I make them all believe it, maybe I'll believe it too
So with a painted grin, I play the part again
So everyone will see me the way that I see them
Are we happy plastic people
Under shiny plastic steeples
With walls around our weakness
And smiles to hide our pain
But if the invitation's open
To every heart that has been broken
Maybe then we close the curtain
On our stained glass masquerade
Is there anyone who's been there, are there any hands to raise
Am I the only one who's traded in the altar for a stage
The performance is convincing and we know every line by heart
Only when no one is watching can we really fall apart
But would it set me free if I dared to let you see
The truth behind the person that you imagine me to be
Would your arms be open or would you walk away
Would the love of Jesus be enough to make you stay

Fires, Fights and Buses

Hey all I am back from the Great White North. I had an awesome time I will fill you all in on all the stories later when I see you face to face. I can not think of a time that I have been happier in a while.
Have I ever mentioned that I am dating an amazing man? Well incase you have never heard me say that, he is amazing and I am so lucky to be dating him. I love to be able just to see him and hang out and do whatever we want. He is just so talented and generous but I'll stop gushing now
Has anyone seen the big beaver in Beaverlodge?...cuz I have...has anyone seen a 5- way stop?...because I have! I had so much fun this weekend and I love Ian's friends they always make me feel welcome and let me be part of their group. They don't treat me with velvet gloves just because I am the "girlfriend". We did bonfires, shopping, movies, bible study and youth group. I decided to be "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and take on Kyle, Ibby, and Trent, if you ever decide that you think that you can take on 3 boys who are way bigger then you in a fight...don't you will probably lose but I gave them the "1-2 combo" which was dedicated to Christine Gallimore :D
I also bought the new Casting Crowns CD...it is amazing. I know some of you might be rolling your eyes going "DUH...Welcome to Obviousland...population everyone but Megan!" but seriously this is an amazing CD. I am not normal someone who listens to much Christian Music because I find some of it to be cheesy but "Lifesong" is an amazing CD...I will bring it to Fuel on Wednesday.
Hope you all had a great weekend.

Talk to you from The Great White North.

Hockey Happy

So last night was a great night...not only did I not work for the first time in what felt like forever but I got a phone call from Tom Lobb asking if we wanted to use his hockey tickets for the game that night. I took my Daddy (yes I am 20 and I still say Daddy) to the game and we had an awesome time. We had great seats and it turned out to be a really good game...even though they lost 5-1 Columbus sure put up a fight so it wasn't just a blow out because even though we score lots...it gets kind of boring . The only annoying thing was the two guys who sat beside us...My dad called him "Mac-T Jr." I am all for being into hockey but I don't want to hear about EVERY single stat on the stats sheet...I don't care who has a left handed shot or that this line has four right handed shooters so this person obviously couldn't have shot the puck because it was a left handed shot. After the game we went to Boston Pizza to talk. It was a great night and I got to have Daddy/Daughter bonding time which I think was the best part.
