Lovely dresses and such for sale, ones that even had a great emotional attachment to! Janique's favourite sweet 16 shirt will also be making an appearance at the sale so you'll perhaps be able to snatch a bit of her heart with that buy...
Okay, so this is what I've been up to since I left the nest and moved in with a baby bird name Janique.
1. Decorating our apartment with theme walls. Current themes: romance. foreign affairs, cultural centre
2. got myself a mini cat named Pascale, she is the best of cats.
3. got evacuated from our apartment abbruptly one Saturday morning when our landlord light her bed on fire. Typical.
4. drinking wine and candle lights; how everynight is spent at 14 Balmoral.
5. FINALLY riding my bike!
6. throwing out half of my closet (same with J) for a clothing sale. Soon TBA, which you best attend (females of course) if you want to get some sweet clothes for cheap $$$.
7. Making extravagant breakfasts on the daily. Here's some news: I have never met anybody that loves 'Dippy eggs' as much as Janique Vigier. EVER.
8. I soon will update some more Janique quotes from the repertoire, my lovely bird has the funniest things to say unintentially, also she teaches a great lesson on how to determine what is actually a mammal.
That's it for now, a mundane life has now been shared with the blogword. (Soon to be changed)

" What are the rules? I said & she said,Do
exactly what I want whenever I want,
make no demands of me whatsoever &
love me forever,
no questions asked & I
said, how do you win? & she said,you
don't understand. I'm the only one who
wins & then she laughed
& clapped her
hands. Isn't it a great game? she said. "
" The first time I saw a movie at the cinématèque française I thought, "Only the French... only the French would house a cinema inside a palace." "
3.15.09. I awake to find lady french and rb sleeping like little angels on the sofa, each with a faint smile on their lips. J says " Sometimes I think that if we are touching feet and holding hands while we're sleeping, we'll dream the same dream," I believe her.
Initially I was planning on wearing fur, and jewels to the ballet, but I think that may be rather ornate for our later destination. After the ballet, and a bottle of wine (I imagine), we plan to head over to the pyramid to check out the NUScollective photo/visual art magazine fundraiser. You should check out the mag, they sell it at LSA, I'm into it.
Ps. Lady french and I found an apartment, we'll be moving in asap. You wouldn't believe the size of the patio, summer time wine and burrs!
KB showed up, we finished dolling up and did a 'professional' photo shoot of 4 dames decked in fur, wine in hand. First stop" Reuby Tuesday's living quaters. So good to see him, he's a gem, not to mention a mega babe with mad drawing talent. We finally arrived at fellow's house in Wolsely, let's just say the copious amount of fur did not go over so well...
Tired, passing out, and not to mention extreme uncomfort lead us back the little squirrel's apartment with intentions of ending the night with a sweet pal Cornelius.
My afternoon ended with a date at bar i with lady french , my future roommate/cuddler etc etc. We perused apartments online over lattes and got far too excited in search of our life-sized dollhouse dreams.

A traditional Dia de los Muertos skull I bought on the trip.
Ps. I really miss summer. Specifically; riding my babe bike Genevieve, beverages while biking, patio lounging, night life, sangria, dresses, sunnies, bare legs, etc etc.
See you around,
Meghan agrees this is the phrase for my trip.
Yesterday I arrived in Cancun, not as many mustaches as I had expected. I sadly admit though that I was somewhat envious of all the women who received a rose from their main squeeze for V-day. -Whatever. I on the other hand found happiness while cracking open a Corona and sitting on the beach. The fam and I went for a lovely oceanside dinner the Palapa but due to jetlag (or maybe a few too many Coronas) I retired to my room at..6:30 pm.
I spent the day at the beach studying Biochem, getting destroyed by waves, and inspecting sand crabs on the beach. I swear my animal physiology class has left me too intrigued with nature and animals that I feel i must 'inspect' all interesting things I come across these days.
Well, I'm too sleepy to write and it's almost time for dinner soooo see ya!
Ps. I think I'm taking sailing lessons tomorrow, yep!
She has a bowl of lilacs in her room
And twists one in her fingers while she talks.
"Ah, my friend, you do not know, you do not know
What life is, you who hold it in your hands”";
(Slowly twisting the lilac stalks)
"You let it flow from you, you let it flow,
And youth is cruel, and has no remorse
And smiles at situations which it cannot see.”
"I smile, of course,And go on drinking tea.“
"Yet with these April sunsets, that somehow recall
My buried life, and Paris in the Spring,
I feel immeasurably at peace, and find the world
To be wonderful and youthful, after all.”"
from Portrait of a Lady by T.S. Eliot
Anyways, I haven't quite decided which form this blog will take, it was originally meant to be a fashion blog (suprise suprise) but I'm not really sold on this idea these days. I imagine it will be a bit of everything I have on my mind on the daily, at least for now.
Lately I've been thinking a lot about friendships and events that have occured over the past year. I've been laying low since the end of summer and haven't really been interested much in partying or the awkward small talk you have with people that you see out almost every weekend but aren't really friends with. I've made some really rad friends over this hibernation period (?) and feel really lucky to have met these people. I guess I don't really know what else to say about it, unless you've met them then you'd know how awesome they are.
I'm going to go to bed but this video is funny. Courtesy of Aimee ( my biggest girl crush right now) and her serious giggles over this creature:
Ps. I have these two glass sculptures of a boy and a girl sitting on top of my mirror and today the girl came crashing down and shattered. I'm pretty bummed about it to say the least.
