I love Halloween but it is not a day celebrated here in Denmark. So to everyone in Canada - have a great day!
Here is an old picture of me - Halloween 2003. My classmates from Uni and I had a party where we all dressed up and had lots of fun! Some of them had never been to a halloween party!?

Here are just some goofy pictures of me - I was bored and I think my grandparents and parents in Canada want me to send pictures! So, here I am!

Things are good here. I just had a vacation from work and classes but tomorrow, my life is back to normal again. I've been getting some painting done but unfortunately, no finished products yet - just a lot of half-finished paintings all jammed into my living room. But one day!

I'm a horrible friend. Kirsten's birthday was last Saturday and I never got a chance to wish her a very happy birthday. I know she had a party which I was unable to go to due to prior engagements but I hope she had a awesome party with all her friends and family. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!

I met Kirsten a few years ago when we started our BA in English and now she's doing her Masters in International Business Communication and I'm sure she's kicking ass.

A few years ago, we had a hallowe'en party with the rest of our classmates. Here is Kirsten and another friend from school, Lasse.

She's a hottie!

Kirsten and Rie. We were the only ones who went to the bars dressed in our costumes. Yes, we were crazy but we had so much fun. She was trying to dance with a huge pillow tucked into her dad's shirt and pants.... Freaking hilarious!!

Happy 25th Birthday!!

Here are some pictures of a party here in Vejle. We were all celebrating Anders' birthday and I'm pretty sure everyone had lots of fun.

Rie and Igor. He runs the local Thaiboxing Club here in Vejle and Anders has known him for many years now.

Jesper and Rie - Jesper is Anders' little brother.

Anders and Claudia.

Claudia and Christa

Thomas and Claudia - Thomas is also a "thaiboxer" and has had a few fights in Denmark and Thailand. Him and Claudia have been together for quite a number of years.

The next two pictures are not from the party but I thought I'd post them anyways.

October 9, 2006. Happy 26th birthday, Anders! I had fun today and I sure hope you did too!


Ok, so this isn't the greatest picture of Anders but in his defense, it was New Years Eve and he was.... well, we had a party at our place and he was drunk. Plus he tends to make faces every time the camera is focused on him.

I think this is from Christmas last year - this is Anders' (step)dad, his brother and Anders playing a game against us girls. WE KICKED THEIR ASSES but that's because we ROCKED!

Anders relaxing with Charlie and Spencer, a few years back when we visited my family in Canada.

My dad took Anders out fishing when we were visiting them. Just the two men - I hope dad didn't scare Anders away!

Anders and my mom, both being true computer geeks!

This is where I work every Monday and Wednesday evenings. I love my job - lots of fun even if the teenagers are being.... well, teenagers. I work with my aunt and I've been working here ever since I moved to Denmark.

My aunt, Karin and some of the guys at our "bar".

We took a small group out to a "skating-disco" with lights and loud music a last season. Here I am with one of our regulars, Jesper.

Again, at the skating rink. Me with the group.

We're all taking a break from skating. Jesper, my cousin and his girlfriend came with me.... Vibeke is the one lighting up a smoke.

Tee hee - me on skates was slightly funny... and slightly dangerous.

Karin and me for hallowe'en last year. I'm obviously the hot devil!!! LOL

Here I am again. No pictures this time but I will soon borrow Anders' camera again and take some funky pictures of anything and everything so you guys will have something to look at instead of just reading.

I had a good weekend - again, no partying or drinking but that's totally ok. I don't have the energy or the money. Even though I just got paid, I also just got an unexpected bill in the mail... Hmmm, do I want electricity or do I want to party?? I'll take the electricity!

Friday after classes, I just vegged out here at home. Did some studying, looked at the dirty dishes and then decided to ignore them for one more day, fell asleep for a couple of hours, had dinner and watched a girly movie. It was a nice evening considering I've been on the run every evening this past week, so I definitely enjoyed a quiet night alone.

Saturday, I got up slightly early, did half of the dishes, cleaned up around my apartment, which I still love! I love my little home! I still need to hang up the blinds and buy some shelves and stuff but me and drilling holes in my walls? Not the greatest combo so I think I'll wait until I can get a friend to help me out. I have major plans with how I want my place to look but unfortunately, I'm a "starving student", so the super cool plans will have to wait. But then again, I plan on living here for a while, so I'm not in that big of a hurry. A work in progress!

I had a date Saturday night.... with Anders. Yes, with Anders. (HI Anders, I know you're reading this!) He spoiled me rotten and we had a very good time. Dinner with red wine, candles were lit and music playing in the background - it was actually quite romantic! Ok, I hope I'm not embarrassing Anders right now but I did have a wonderful evening and I just thought I'd share that with you guys.

I'm tired today. It's Sunday afternoon and I should probably get some school work done before I talk to my parents on skype.... Or maybe finish the dishes... Hmmmm, I could be a good girl and do both. The youth club starts tomorrow evening and that's super cool! The "ungdomsskole" (evening club/school for local teenagers) starts Tuesday and I was at a meeting last Thursday so it looks like everything is set. Youth club Mondays and Wednesdays, Girl Group Tuesdays and English on Thursdays... Luckily all these jobs are in the evenings so I should be ok with my own school. I just had my last shift cleaning at the dentist office today and handed in my key - Yeah me! I'm done with taking on cleaning jobs - it's easy money but holy shit, it's boring as hell.

Ok, I'm done rambling. I need to do some work now. I need to be a responsible student. I need to do my dishes. I need to sort through my October budget. I actually don't have time to ramble on blogger.
