Not dead, I swear!

Have been doing lots of knitting lately, and my Ambitious Knitting Plan is well under way.  My Super Secret Ninja Mission will also be getting along soon.

Getting a new computer today - a laptop.  Sam is still my favourite, though, Ellie, don't worry.  XDDDD  I haven't figured out what I'll name the laptop yet, though definitely not Annwyn, because it just feels like I'm killing the original Annwyn or something, lol.

Went lobster fishing yesterday with Bart, Matt, and Jake - Bart is the dad of the kids I take care of, Matt is the oldest, and Jake (15) is the... fourth of the ten kids.  It was super awesome and I had a great time.  Am I weird for really, really enjoying jobs that entail physical labour?  Because I do, haha.  Will describe the day in more detail in another entry later (or in comments if people ask questions XD).  No pictures, sadly - I'd bought a waterproof disposable so I could take pictures, but then I forgot it, and I would have been too busy anyways, what with the doing actual work on the boat, and not just being along for the ride, haha.  Also, I doubt Wal-Mart - or anywhere else - would let me turn in a camera covered in fish gut smears to be developed.  XDDD

Going to Halifax soon, in the first few days of July.  I'm doing a certificate course in teach English as a second or foreign language, and it starts July seventh.  I'm going to leave Sam here and take my laptop (and external harddrive, which I have yet to name, dammit) with me because I'll actually be able to find somewhere to put the laptop, unlike Sam, as he takes up too much space for the room I have in Grandma's apartment, and it isn't worth it to replace her computer with Sam for just two months.  I need to find my summer clothes - I thought they were in my big green suitcase that I hadn't unpacked yet, but... that was winter clothes.  Dammit. XD

Been doing almost nothing but knitting or sewing while watching House lately, and practically all I've been listening to for the last few weeks is the House "definitive soundtrack".  That's what the torrent file is called, anyway - it's got stuff that isn't on the official soundtrack - some of it is just the audio lifted directly from the show, but that's fine with me, haha.  I'd forgotten how freaking awesome House was until I decided to download the series because I'd barely seen any of seasons one and two, and am now totally addicted.

...I hope I'm not the only one out there who cried like a baby during the last two episodes of seasons four.  XDD

House made me cry. Guilty. :o

She returns. And I was just thinking the other day, "Hmmm, where's Caitlin?" XD.

Sounds like serious work. How many lobsters did you nab?

What does that mean for you?

Knitting and watching House while babysitting?

Ahh... I cried a lot while reading the most recent chapter of Naruto. Definitely embarrassing. XD.

Haha, yeah. ^^;;

We had about five hundred pounds, give or take. Bart said they were down a little from the day before, but it was still a decent haul. There were some real monsters in there!

What, going to Halifax?

Oh, no, not while babysitting. I meant that's all I've been doing outside of work lately. XDD

I... haven't read the most recent chapters. Oops? XD

Nice. How do you handle them?

The certification.

Oh, I see.

Oh my, then it is a good thing I didn't mention anything. *zips mouth shut*

Well, to avoid the pincher claw and the crusher claw you grab them right behind those joints, so they can't nab you, and use what kind of looks like a pair of pliers (except they work in reverse - squeezing the handles opens them) to put a lobster band on the clawd one at a time. ^^

Uhm, it'll give me a certificate - as in a qualification - in teachign English as a second/foreign language? I dunno what else to tell you, really, haha. XDD

Haha, I better go read those new chapters soon. XD

Ahh... sounds riveting!

As in what else is on your to realizing your career other than the Bachelor's?

You should! Good stuff. Where did you leave off?

Gripping, certainly. *is shot*

Well, after my BA I need to get a BEd so I can teach here.

I think it was 400 - with Team Hebi/Snake becoming Team Eagle. Sasuke is so freaking-- augh. *headdesk*


And that's it?

Ah... I see. Not much has happened since, just the plot finally moving a little. Last chapter = sappy. Had me bawling.

I'm hating the direction Kishimoto is going with Sasuke too.
