Night 11

I was making stew tonight and I filled the pot with water to let it soak and remove any caked on cooked beef. I lost grip of this completely full pot, and dumped about 4 litres of beef water all over my pants. They are completely soaked and I have no change of clothes. I have hung my pants up to dry and in the meantime I have taken two aprons, tied them together and am wearing it as a make shift skirt.

Night 7

There used to be a time when I would never cry at a movie that way I could make fun of my mother for crying like a baby, but those times are gone my friend.*SPOILERS AHEAD*

Night 6

My time off is done and here I am for the first of four night shifts and I am actively working on new positions to sleep in. I feel like the MacGyver of sleep platforms.

In the mood of Christmas I thought I would talk about the sexy things I wear to bed during the holidays.

I hate receiving presents. I remember when I was young and when I received a present I was so genuinely happy, jumping up and down and profusely thanking my parents because back then getting a barbie or stuffed animal or big bag of chips that you didn't have to share with anyone was the best.

Today is my first out of three days off of night shift. My friend posted a picture of Venus and one of its moon that she saw the other night and this got me thinking about how much I love space; I fucking love space.

Not a girl, Not yet a woman

When do I become a woman?

Night 5

I hate the forced return compliment. You know when someone says, "Oh I love your outfit," or " Cute shoes girlfriend," so you then feel forced to say a compliment back.

When I was young I uses to live in Prince Rupert; Like 4 years old young. It rained almost every single day and was constantly gloomy. If I had been older and known what suicide was, I'm sure I would have contemplated it.

Night 4

I watch a lot of movies, mostly because they take my mind off of my own life for a little while. Tonight I watched Splice. SPOILERS AHEAD

Fountain of Lost Dreams

When I was about 7 years old I used to collect quarters. I would collect any kind of quarter that had a different design on it and put them into my piggy bank that was shaped like a wishing well. My goal was to collect all the quarters in this certain set one year. One day I went to put a quarter in my piggy bank and noticed how light it felt. I shock it form side to side hoping to hear some quarters. I opened my piggy bank and there was nothing inside; no quarters. I closed my bedroom door and started crying. My parents found me in my room all upset and we all suspected my older brother had taken them. After threatening to take away his computer privileges if he didn't tell the truth, he finally admitted it. He had taken the quarters to buy himself a video game. He was not sorry for taking my quarters and that he didn't care he had done that. I went back into my room, cried some more and have never collected a quarter since.

Night 3

I have just realized that I spend over 8 hours a day alone with myself. I have no one to talk to and am left feeling trapped in my mind. One of the people that I did speak to today got my name wrong. I get to his house and he says did you say your name was Bertha? Uhhhh no, It's Larissa. This isn't the first time he has asked if my name is Bertha and I tell him every time that it's not. I'm scared to ask him if I look like a Bertha because what if he says yes, than where does my self esteem go from there?

Night Two

It's dark, cold, rainy, and my night has just begun. I sat back in my chair, closed my eyes, and let my mind wonder to see where it ends up. For some reason I thought of a joke. I don't understand this joke, I don't even think it's a joke, I think it's more of a statement, but the person who told it to me could barely contain his laughter; he though it was so funny.

Q: There are three cows in a barn, they all moo at the same time, which one gave birth?
A: The second one.

The Chronicles of Night Shifts: Night One

I have decided to start chronicling my night shifts. I used to work nights as a waitress and remember becoming very depressed and a very different person. I think I would like to have documentation to see at what point I really lose my mind and try to ward off the impending doom of depression.

Sunday, December 12, 2010


It's 4:30 in the morning, I went to bed at 1:30 and am up again because of a nightmare. This was such a weird dream and I am trying to remember details of it so that I can try to understand why I dreamt it; it seemed so out of place but yet so tied together in a sense.

I have these asian landlords that do very strange things.

Creature of Habit

I eat the same thing every day. I like eating the same thing everyday; I am a creature of habit. Because I work night shift I don't wake up until 6 p.m. At this time I will eat an apple and banana then at around 10:00 I will eat a bowl of mixed vegetable that I have microwaved for 5 minutes. It contains peas, carrots, corn, string beans and edamame. This is the best mixed vegetable bag I have ever had because it has edamame in it. Usually I hate Canadian Superstore because I feel they get they're produce from radioactive fields. The produce tastes like it has been held in a refrigerator for 1 year, then left in an above room temperature storage cellular for a week, so that it has almost gone bad and then as they are transporting it the shelves they all drop on the floor so they are bruised and disgusting when I go to buy them. They also sell blueberries with seeds in them, i didn't even know blueberries had seeds. Anyways this mixed vegetable bag is the only good thing about canadian superstore. Well when I eat my mixed vegetables I put in pad thai sauce, spring roll sauce, hot sauce, pepper, chili powder, and seasoning salt. I eat this every single day almost. The other day after I had prepared my food with all my sauces, I dumped a can of coke zero in it. I don't know why I did that and after I had dumped half the can into the bowl of vegetables I realized what I had done. I then had to take the bowl of vegetables put them in the strainer and rinsed them off and continued to eat them. Which reminds me, I was cutting onions on a cutting board and I guess I did not wash the cutting board well enough so when I cut the apple on the cutting board the apple then tasted like onion. Last apple in the fridge and it was covered in onion juice; I ate it.

Is it normal?

I read this website called is it normal? It's a website where people ask a question about something they do, think, or feel and see if people think it's normal or not and people comment on it.


IIN that I'm little attracted my cousin?

IIN to want to dress up cats in orange jumpsuits and pretend I'm a warden?

IIN to fear 2012, I fear Cows will take over

So, here's my is it normals.

Sexy Face

I have this tendency to try and do a sexy face every time a photo is taken of me. I don't do this face because I am actually trying to be sexy, I just don't know how else to pose for a photo; It's like the camera comes out and I whip out sexy face.

Coheed and Cambria

This is an awesome band who I literally feel attached too.

Under Death We Rise

Back in Penticton we had this "couple" friends where me and my boyfriend would go over every Friday night, get drunk and play rockband. I was guitar, my boyfriend was bass, the chick was vocals and the dude was drums; all though as the night progressed and everyone got more drunk we all would switch instruments because of course everyone wants to drunk sing. Well when we first started playing this game you need to make a band and a name for that band. So we started drinking and thowing some names around. We wanted some cheesey metal name so I came up with under death we rise. Yes it is cheesy, does not really make any sense but yet was so perfect. We became under death we rise and together we slayed friday nights drinking, playing vids and shooting the breeze. Nights you will never forget. Nights that form friendships. This blog is dedicated to those nights and to those friends.

To good friends everywhere.

Irrational Things That Annoy Me

There are many things that annoy/irritate me; I blame my mother for this. When I was a child she always got annoyed at the simplest most irrational things and I believe she has passed on this wonderful trait to me, even though I fight it every day. If I am in public and hear or see something that annoys me, I take a second, look around and gage other people's reactions. If no one else seems annoyed at what happened or what is happening then I tell myself that I should not be annoyed because, appearing by general consensus, this is not an annoying act, and I would be weird to think otherwise.

Marine Iguanas

Did you know that land iguanas have develeoped the ability to swin in order to catch food in the region that they lived; therefore creating what we know as the marine iguana. They developed the ability to swim with webbed feet and slender tale and body. When times of low food availability the sea iguanas can actually shrink their body. They send out an enzyme that shrinks the bones so that it actually decreases in size, up to 9 cm. While they are decreasing in size the land iguanas are gettign huge. So big in fact that they are no longer able to catch food and moe around quickly due to their obesity. The land iguanas and sea iguanas have mated to produce a hybrid iguana that is able to climb treas and swim in the water. The Hybrid ends there because nor the land iguana or sea iguana are willing to mate with the hybrid to continue the line of adaptation. So If an iguana can develop the ability to swim and shrink it's bones., why am I not able to ignore people's annoying tendencies that humans have, like when they sneeze or cough a lot, you know a human function, but for some reason it irritates me. hmmm maybe one day.
