not much going on in K-town

another normal day in Kingston today! This years summer is just amazing! I wish the day had more hours so I could actually fit everything in the day what I wanna do and what I have to do. You know working the regular 8hrs + sleeping 8hrs (beauty sleep) + go boxing for 3hrs + go sit in the sun and read for another endless time, okay maybe 3hrs. Oh wait that would be already 22hrs. When would I eat and do all the other stuff. Geeeeeez, I am telling you a day is way too short nowadays!
Well, guess I have to prioritize! Hate doing that, I can't decide what I wanna do more. I mean just sitting in the sun won't give me the workout I need but it's soooooo relaxing, but I also wanna work out and keep going to Daniele's classes or to the gym. Meeh, guess the sun has to wait. I have to admit though I am slacking on the treadmill! Haven't been on one in for ages! I swear you could easily beat me on one even for your usual 5 min.! lol
But guess who is staying at the hotel tonight! Yeppers, Mr. Mark Waters himself! He called and asked me for a favor again! Guess he owes me now a few favors! Let's see if he remembers when it's time for that. Anyways, I like keeping him close, you never know what that mifght be good for. Right?
So, not sure if I told you about the plan Daniele and I have! Remember stupid Mike, the new boxing dude at Premier? Well yeah the plan is about him. Daniele wants to get me in shape and then we both wanna go and attend one of his classes. Daniele pretending she never boxed before and so. Mike doesn't know I am training with her right now, he assumes I gave it up all together.
So, when time comes and I have some good basics together we will go to one of his classes and bam bam bammmmmm. I wanna see his jaw drop right down to the hardwood floor. muahahahahahahahahahaa!
What do you think? Sounds hilarious, eh. Would be even better if I could learn some more of your tricks, but I guess I can't have all! Last friday I actually fainted in class. Hahahaha, no worries all good I guess I just had to reboot! After I was back on my feet I felt like reborn! I was only out for about 30 seconds but for me it felt like a whole day of rest! So I just kept going and going, actually was able to land some nice hooks on Daniele.
Well, so much for tonight! Hope as always you are doing alrighty! Only a few more days until your laywer has the appointment with the judge! Let's see what the will bring! My fingers are crossed.

it was all worth it...

after a couple hours at the bar we were able to check in the hotel for the one night. Girls in that room and guys in that room! Just like in the old times during school trips. Just way better! So we girls all dressed up in our tradition Bavarian dresses. You know the Oktoberfest dresses. Geez, did we look amazing! And off we were for my friends bachelorette night! We hopped from bar to bar, started at 7pm all the way until 7am! What a night! In between bars we dipped our sore feet and legs in the Mediterranean sea! Beautiful, just perfect. Once you will be back home I can show you some pics! The next morning wasn't that beautiful though. We had to be check out of the hotel by 10am! Awwwwwwww, I think I took 3 Tyleno 500! We took cabs to the cruise ship. We had to drive to the other side of Mallorca! Who would have thought that a spanish little Island could be that big. But finally we were able to see the harbour and our ship! What a beauty! And even we had to be out the hotel that early we were glad it had to be that way. Because we were with in the firsts who could check in the cruise and get on board. Woot woot! No line ups at check in and nothing! Just perfect! So we drop our luggage with the valet guys and only take the pool stuff with us. You know bathing suites and towels oh yeah and sun blocker for me! While touring the ship we decide first to have lunch and then head to the pool to get some rest. I tell you, food on a cruise is amazing! Only the best food was offered on the buffets. Everyday a different specialty! I am surprised I did not gain any weight. But that is also because we were walking a hell lot and I went to the gym as often as I could. Hahahaha, gym on a cruise ship is fun! Especially when we were on the sea! The ship was hoovering to the right and back to the left, waves smashing against it's body, now imagine while being swung back and forth you run on a treadmill. Just like the best intervall training ever.
Half of our group got sea sick the first day. Not me! I had so much fun, the rougher the sea the more fun I had! The rest is pretty much what I wrote you on the cards from all the stops. It was hard to say good bye to my friend after it was all over. But I know I will see her again within the next 365 days! We promised each other to at least see each other once a year!
But enough from me. How are you doing??? Hope you stayed out of trouble! I got to talk to your mom finally! Geez, it is harder to get a hold of your mom than the freaking pope! lol
Anyways, she said not much new. Same old, same old. And I also met with Alysa when I got back from the trip. She said your laywer had an appointment coming up on August 20th, with the judge assigned to your case to determine what the actuall charges are. Well, let me help them a little here: THERE ARE NO FREAKING CHARGES!!! Geez, it is time that they give in and let you be. The have ruined enough of your life and have waisted enough of your precious time. Damn it, you are not immortal that you would have eternity to catch up on everything! Ohhhh, just thinking about the whole situation makes me angry! I really hope it will all be over soon! Just for the sake of it!
Alysa is going to europe for 3 weeks, she told me. She is going to have soooo much fun! She will be going to Cologne, that is where I am from, well not from Cologne but the area. So I am just seeing what I could recommened her to do! But there is sooooo much to do! But I have an idea what she needs to do for sure! There are the best breweries in Cologne and they actually offer a brewery tour through all Cologne! Beer tasting through Cologne. Awesome! And she needs to walk up the bell tower of the cathedrale in Cologne, the view is just amazing! It's not as high as the CN Tower but still the view is stunning. Cologne is beautiful!
Oh and Alysa said she found a new apartment. From one tiny room to a one bedroom apartment! Woot woot! She will love it!
I am still going to the gym to work out but I do not attend boxing classes anymore. After all the dilema Marc Waters finally let me out my boxing contract. But no worries, do you remember Daniele from your classes. She is the woman that boxed professionally for a while but had to stop because of her knees. Short blond hair, glasses...... Got it? Well, I stay in touch with her since and she actually started her own little boxing school. It's just boxing, because she doesn't know any other MMA but at least it is professional and good. So for now I am with her 3 times a week. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, all the other days I go to the gym and just do my own thing. I sometimes watch stupid Mike teaching (if it is that what you call it) his class, but he never exceeds the number of 4 students per class.
I haven't seen Joey in forever, wondering if he is still around? He was saying something about moving away. mmmmmmh
I talk to Marc Waters a lot now. He is around at least once a week. Sometimes he stays at my hotel. I usually make sure to mention your existence! So he doesn't forget. I usually do it in comparison to the lousy classes Mike does! Reminding him how many people we had in class when you were teaching and stuff. Lately I am also telling him that I am training with Daniele for now. He asked why not give Mike another chance, I just chuckled at him and said: No thanks!
Besides that, not much going on. I think Morgan and Krista are the only ones remaining in class. Oh wait let me correct that, Krista is the only one! Morgan went back to the Kingston Boxing Club for boxing training. And as far as I know Krista just wants to use up all her PTs and then stop too! So you see it is time for you to come back!
Well, so much for today! I will keep my fingers crossed for you for the 20th! Hopefully it will all be good this time!
I ordered a long summer, so we should still have lots of sunshine in August and September. I am telling you, it is worth it staying out of trouble!

A trip worth it....

I am back form my 2 weeks vacation. And yes I have to admit it was a blast and worth every minute! I hope you got my postcard collection, I am never too sure what they will let go through to you and what not. But I think I did everything right, the postcards were in an envelope and not sentenced with any fragrances and I saved the lipstick mark for the not exsiting cute guys on the boat, lol! So, as you have seen from my cards I have seen quiet a bit of europe in just a few days. My favorite country and city by far was Malta and it was too bad the wedding was in Malta. But I could have not thought of any better place to get married for my friends than Malta. Everything was just perfect. It was all small and beautiful and intimite, just as they wanted it for their special day. Even the wedding planner had tears in her eyes through out the ceremony. No, I did not cry! Even I was close, but I have to say, I was the only one not crying! And out of the 4 bridesmaids I was the best looking one! pahahaahahahahahaa! So all the worries washed aside about their dresses. They acctually looked pretty cheap and the girls were complaining all day long that it was too hot in their dresses or that the dresses were so stretched at noon that they were falling off, bla bla bla... Good canadian quality saved my a** and made me look just amazing, next to the bride. Of course she was the best looking princess of the day!
Anyways, I better start off at the beginning, let me see if I get everything back together. It was a lot in a short time. Well I took a flight from Ottawa to Washington D.C., and have to say it was a pretty good flight,even it was operated by United. Not a big fan of american airlines. In Washington I had a 6 hour lay over. And because I lived in D.C. for a year and a half I knew the airport well. So I went to the main terminal to get some lunch. OMG, decisions, decisions... I am telling you if you only have 6 hours but you have a FIVE GUYS and a CHIPOTLE to choose from, well that is a challenge! After walking back and forth between the two places I decided for FIVE GUYS. Best Burgers and fries EVER! And promised I was coming for CHIPOTLE on my way back home. Oh I loved my Burger, fries and CHERRY COKE! To bad coke doesn't sell any cherry coke in Canada! After the most delicious lunch I went shopping at the airport. Nope, not clothe shopping. I needed a book for my trip. So I went to the american version of Chapters, which was Borders. And lucky me I still had my Borders membership from when I lived in D.C.! So I bought 2 books, got all the discounts I could have asked for and was really happy! I went and started reading one of my newly purchased books, but I was more fascinated by the airplanes landing and taking off. I find it unbelievable that such heavy things build of mostly steal can fly! After a while I made my way to the gate for my flight to Madrid. This time the flight was operated by Air Lingus. Yeppers, an irish airline. And nope we did not stop in Ireland. Weird eh? That's what I thought but the service was really good. Okay I was glad I had a big FIVE GUYS bruger before the flight, because the on board food is not even enough for a baby. Geez, they serve a hand full of food. Are you kidding me, I am trapped here for 8.5 hours and you just provide me with a lousy hand full of food! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr! But I had time in Madrid to grab something for breakfast. You gotta love time zones. I left D.C. in the afternoon and arrived in Spain, Madrid in the morning! Awwwwwww! But I can not recommend to fly over any spanish airports. Damn what a nightmare. So I get of my flight from D.C. and look for signs for the gate for my connecting flight to Palma de Mallorca. Yeah right, now signs. So I walk to the information booth. Since it is marked "Information" I thought I would get information on where I have to go to catch my connecting flight. Yeah, nope! 6 Ladies are behind the counter, one working her nails, one busy on the computer, 2 chatting and the last two just ignoring me. Well, I walk up to the counter and ask, showing my boarding pass for my connecting flight, where I would have to go. Answer: I DO NOT KNOW! What? Okay, so I ask her if she was working here? YES! Okay, so again where do I have to go? I DO NOT KNOW! OMG, I was fuming. So with good luck I started walking in a random direction and luckily it was the right one! I finally made it to the correct gate. My flight 30 minutes late. At that point I was so looking forward seeing my friend, I didn't care about any delays, I just wanted to get there. Leaving Madrid I left rain and clouds behind me. This was the beginning of 10 days burning sunshine and lots of fun!
I finally arrive at the hotel were my friend was already with the rest of the wedding party! I was the last one to arrive. Well, the best comes last! muahahahaha!
I drop my bags and walk to the patio bar and started drinking with the rest of our group! What a start off my vacation! Our group is amazing, everybody just clicks right away with each other! But I find it hard talking German all the time, so I find shelter with Hilary. She is from Halifax, perfect for an English escape if needed!
