    HIGHS:

    - *ahem* I BOUGHT VICTORIA'S ENGAGEMENT RING!! Actually, I bought it on Thursday, but other than a few PMs to Ron this is the first chance I have to post here. So exciting! The whole purchase went very smoothly... I found the ring I wanted in like 5 minutes and the sales people were so nice and helpful. Only problems... since Vic loves white gold and the band they had was yellow gold they had to send it to be remounted on a 'temporary' white gold band while we wait for the real one to be shipped in a couple weeks... and in the process of the mounting and sizing for the temp i have to wait a few days. When I get it [Jan 6th at the absolute latest] I finally get to pop the question! Then, just a few days later I send her back to school for our final smester apart... YAY!:) 

    - Vic's cousin had her baby this morning. It's her first and she had a few minor scares... bedreast for over a month. But everything is good. Healthy baby girl. ANNNND... since I'm already housesitting for Vic's Aunt [baby's grandma] she's going to [hopefully] be staying down in Florida at least a couple days longer which will play right into my proposal plans... :) 

    LOWS:

    - My car. My crappy car. Lousy crappy old Saturn. It died. Well... I think it died. Sounds like it died. Barely starts, barely runs after it barely starts, and sounds like crap. It's dead. I hope. But because of the ring.... I'm broke. Can't afford to fix it, and can't afford to replace it.

    Crap.:(

    Highs: Flying back to Vancouver to see the family on the 22nd. Got hammered 3 nights in a row with no hangovers, great parties, excellent times all round.

    Low: Flight back cancelled on 26th, Flights on 27th cancelled(weather). Took red eye bus ride back home, got in at 5am and went straight to work.... worked for 12 hours to catch up on missed day (27th) finally slept after 38hours. BUT not before finding out the company I work for is bankrupt (after I put in a full day) and therefore NO PAYCHECKS FOR ALL OF DECEMBER yeah about $6 large.
    Yeah so no job AND no money for entire month... can't wait for the bills to start showing up...

    Yeah, i don't really care too much about my car. The problem is that it stands for my independence. Vic doesn't own a car, and barely drives anyway since she just got her license. So, unless it repairable and cheap, or my parents buy me a car as an engagement gift I'm screwed for awhile.

    But yeah... GO RON GO!

    Who cares about the car!! WOOO TO GETTING ENGAGED!!


    Happily and foreverly (yes i know that isnt a word) together is much more kick ass than a car which will eventually die anyway.

    Recovered from my aforementioned food poisoning.

    LOW:
    Went into town today, found a game I'd been looking for for a helluva long time, (Robotech Battlecry), and I had no cash on me, I picked up my freaking £10 Woolworths voucher, I dont even shop at Woolworths.

    HIGHS: Got Classics MEGATRON and Classics GRIMLOCK at TRU today, finally completing my Classics Decepticon collection until Ramjet comes. Classics Grimmy ain't bad, either. :) 

    AN EVEN BETTER HIGH: Looking at the receipt, Turns out that when I bought Megatron and Grimlock, Grimlock came up $0.00. Maybe there must have been some sale where I buy one Voyager Transformer and get a deluxe TF FREE! W00t!

    SUPER DUPER HIGH: I finally got me the one Christmas gift other than Clerks II that I DIDN'T get for Christmas. TRU BEAST WARS 10TH ANNIVERSARY OPTIMUS PRIMAL VS. MEGATRON TWO-PACK! YAAAAAAAAAAAY!

    LOWS: Are you kidding!? With these four guys, I can finally start taking photos of my shelves! W00t!!!

    In addition to the Christmas haul, I just got Grimlock! Oddly enough, I had no problem finding him, but almost everything else (the Prime/Megs 2 pack and such) were sold out. Weeeeeeird
