    Sorry to hear about your kitty. I know how hard it is to lose a pet as I've had cats in the past. :(

    On another note, my niece is turning ten. She's throwing a party this weekend, her last weekend before school.

    Bonfire and campout. Should be fun, but I have a family history of rained-out camping. Every time we'd set up a tent, it rained.

    So long as it doesn't rain! I'm planning to sleep under the stars, and if it rains, I'm all wet.

    Thanks for the support everyone. It really means a lot to me. [:D]

    That sounds awesome! We used to do a bonfire and fireworks for my Nan's birthday as it was close to November 5th. It was all my family on my mum's side and it was great. Hope the weather holds up. :D

    I just got my boys hooked on the X-Files. They were toddlers when the show ended, so they never seen it before. I was going through the Netflix streaming video and got them to watch the first episode last night. They have been watching it all day today. I am not sure what season they are on now.

    A couple seasons of X-Files were filmed in Vancouver, BC. When my family lived down there (I was still quite young), my mom was out with her sister one night and came across a TV crew filming a scene for the show, and they were actually allowed to stay there and watch. I have yet to get into X-Files, but a ton of Stargate SG1 was also filmed in Vancouver and the surrounding area, so often I'll be watching it and go "hey, I totally have been there".

    I love X-Files and Quantum Leap! AFAIK I've seen every single X-Files episode and the films. Not sure about Quantum Leap as I watched it on TV and I probably missed a few episodes.

    My little brothers love Quantum Leap. I've been trying to get them into Stargate and Doctor Who, but so far they haven't listened to my genius recommendations.

    So, I got some good news yesterday. The ministry of transportation FINALLY got back to me after I set them my medical fitness test over 2 months ago and the committee has given me the go ahead to get my learner's license! I have to re-read the driver's handbook (so not fun) then go in for my written test. Once I pass that, I get my learners but the first few times that I drive has to be with a professional driving instructor so they can recommend the right hand controls. And after I complete a year with my learners, I have to do a special road test, then I have to do another one 2 years after that (we have a stupid graduated licensing program here). THEN I have to complete a medical exam every 5 years when I want to renew my driver's license. But I am so happy!

    Congratulations! Enjoy the harrowing first time behind the wheel, followed by the joy of driving, and then the seething hatred of every single other vehicle on the road, because they all can't drive worth squat compared to you.

    I'm still somewhere in the fear of driving and enjoying it once I start driving. The hatred of other vehicles was already present. :p

    And as for my weekend... My niece's party went well and after everyone left, we all camped out. The mosquitos were particularly bad, so I retreated to a tent. Slept great, though, once I fell asleep. The party food gave me horrible stomach cramps, and doing sit-ups only partially relieved the pain. My cat, Mabel, was also over, and during the party, she was manhandled by overzealous kids, so she hid.

    This morning, while I was waiting for my brother to come and get Mabel and I, a five-lined skink scuttled across the porch, inches away from me. It ran right in front of me, stopped, looked, than ran. Quite a pleasant surprise.

    That's great! I hope it goes well. Having a medical every five years sounds like a pain but it seems worth it for the freedom of driving. :)

    Congratulations, Brianna! Driving does bring its annoyances, but it's more than compensated by being able to go where you want without a chauffeur.

    Just googled 5-lined skink. So those are probably the ones with the pretty blue tails that I see sometimes. Cute!

    Just remember @Briannakin, everyone else on the road is a complete moron, and they will do something stupid. If you remember these two things, you'll be good. :)

    Thanks guys, I'm not looking forward to moron drivers, but it'll be better than relying on other people and this town's lame excuse for a bus system. Right now, on a good day, it takes me just over an hour to get to university and I have to transfer busses twice (not fun when it's -40). My town is fairly spread out (you can do that in northern Canada, we have space to kill), so the bus system is kinda a joke, but there is little that can be done about it).

    Practice "defensive driving"... and by "defensive driving" I mean "The best defense is a good offense". :p

    Bleeeeech, my clothes smell like a campfire. Not even a nice campfire, they smell like a campfire that used old building materials for the fuel... mainly because that's what my half-brother was burning. I put in branches, but the majority of the wood used was lumber.
