I miss my dog! She is in Toronto still as I needed to fly back to work and there was no room for dog kennels on any flights that week.
What is ridiculous is that it cost me $190 to fly home to Victoria and to ship her on the same airline independently of me costs over $250! What kind of policy is going on THERE??
I am trying to rent out the coolest loft bedroom to a pet-person as I am sick of paying so much in rent! I want to start paying a mortgage!
My mom flew to Calgary today for her cousin's funeral - the poor guy was shot in the head by an angry former client who was denied a mortgage!
I am loving my new job at the Ministry of Environment - I love all the taxidermied animals around. I need to befriend more people so I can get up close and personal with some big-horned sheep skulls!
I am going to visit some hotsprings this weekend for the first time in my life! Wahooo! When I was on the Baja Peninsula years ago I hiked forever in the dark with some friends looking for some hot springs we were told about....I remember wading through swamp-type stuff in a sundress surrounded by bioluminescence....but our mission was not successful. I will rectify that this weekend!

Yippee Yahoooo Savannah!

Aye Aye Aye!

I am super thrilled to be able to say that I am now officially employed as a Policy Analyst with the BC Ministry of the Environment! I am going to assist with troubleshooting issues arising from the Wildlife Act!

I get to work with biologists! Dead animals are on the walls! Maps too!

Not only am I happy to have employment, but I am thrilled to be working in a field of law and policy that I sincerely enjoy.

Year of the DOG!

2005 was fucked!

I said goodbye to very massive parts of my life last year. My dog was by my side the whole time. I have never been good with letting go of things and when it comes to humans, this is especially true. While I have overcome the deaths of friends and lovers, I have never had to suddenly cease contact with a special person in my life when they are still alive and living in the same neighbourhood even!

I want to be able to embrace transitional periods better, as life sure is stocked full of them. With loss comes opportunity. I am so grateful for my physical health and fundamental awe with existence.

Resolutions? None really so far. I actually followed through on some resoltions from last year which makes me happy! I just want to use my moisterizers more often than I do. My problem is that I hate oily ointment stuff on my face. I'd also like to start writing more in my spare time and maybe get published in local papers.

Less thought and more action.

Express my talents.

Love to small lizards everywhere.
