Holiday season!

Photobucket


Hope everyone is having a magical Christmas this season, and that all the houses (and all forms of housing) are comfortable and warm and lovely~

We saw 'Sherlock Holmes, Game of Shadows' today! I say...not as good as the first one, but still pretty darn fantastic! Who could say no to a movie like that, after all?

Home for the Holidays

Today, on my second day back at home for Christmas my family and I went up the mountain to go skiing! It wasn't too cold and we had a lovely little first ski of the season! The trails were slippery and good for going pretty fast down one of our favourite trails... Cannonball! (get ready for this Jim!)

Yesterday I went and got a very very very much needed hair cut, and it's pretty awesome now~

Jim is here on friiiiiday! So excited!

Robyn and Katelyn's snowy sledding adventure!



Yesterday after one of Katelyn's finals (I finished on friday! wheeee!) we went on a 15 minute or so walk away from campus to find an apparently legendary sledding hill. Katelyn has been looking it up online, and it was listed as one of Calgary's best sledding hills..and with it being so near campus, of course we had to go check it out!

We got there and it was super steep, and there were a fair amount of people on it so they had packed all the snow down already. Reminded me of the Juan de Fuca rec-centre in Victoria with their giant and very dangerous sledding hill that ends in a fence...loved that place!

We ended up getting totally soaked, and had an awesome time!
Upon returning home, her friend Mike (?) came by and we baked 4 batches of cookies! I have some to take on the airplane today because I am going hooooooooome!

correction: going home if the plane can take off in this snow. I'm thinking it will be fine..but still. ugh snow. ugh.

:D

Words

Photobucket


Most Canadians have what is called the 'cot-caught merger', where we pronounce the words exactly the same, despite their very different spellings. This is also true with tot and taught, and probably more examples as well!
British people don't do this. Apparently Americans don't either, with the exception of the west coast or something..? Can't quite remember.

It's interesting though!

In other news I have only 4 essays out of the 13 left to plan, and some terms to go over...and that's it! Review, and get to tests. Oh goodness me.
Back to that!

Outside it is snowy and there was a nice sunset the other day.
I had to take a photo of my awesome geoarchaeology paper this morning before I handed it it. Have to say, I was pretty impressed about my stapler actually managing to go through all of those pages. (21 pages!!!!)
Three of my four lectures are over, and two of my four classes are totally finish...and my study schedule is on track so far! Just a bit longer til exams, and I get to go home~

I vacuumed my room today. Be astounded.
