Had an eye doctor appointment yesterday and found out I DO have astigmatism. So like, technically I need glasses again, but I don't actually because it's not that bad. But like if I get headaches because of eye straining or whatever then I should go back... but I'm SO HAPPY. I was so scared he would say that I needed glasses again (I had them from age 2 to age 9 but then my eyes corrected themselves) but I don't. Such a relief, as I hate glasses and am the most forgetful person in the world so would never remember the wear them (even when I was like 6 I would forget to wear them... and there were for all-the-time use, not just for reading).

I have to finish my Antigone essay, which I will do once I post this... the gentle art of procrastination has slowly become my life. I watched the True Hollywood Story of Full House this afternoon, and I can safely say it was of the highest quality and what an exhilarating way to spend two hours. Unbelieveable. Like, did you know that John Stamos was unhappy with being typcast as Uncle Jesse for so many years and so he would do made-for-TV movies where he would play badasses so he could break free from the confines of his child-friendly image as the resident Greek uncle hottie on TGIF? I did, because I watched the Full House True Hollywood Story.

Soooooooooo... I basically spent the last couple of days in a nice, drunken haze. It has been lovely. I will recap, because I'm bored like that.

Saturday: Went to Lani's cottage with Ally. Basically the minute we got there the Malibu was flowing... like as in within the first ten minutes of being there I had a glass of Malibu and orange juice in my hand. Then we went over to her neighbours and I met all of them. She had me and Ally out, and then her neighbours had like 6 kids out so there were like 12 of us in total. So we played Cranium and just chilled and stuff. Then had dinner... but by this time I was like tipsy because I had more to drink at her neighbours... because they were all playing bartender... so they kept making everyone drinks... let me tell you, drunken Cranium = good times. Anyway. So then we go over to Lani's cottage again because there was a bonfire. Toasted in the new year with a bottle of champagne, lovely. Came back to her neighbours and chilled. Did shots and car-bombs (it's like a shot inside a glass of something. Like you drop a shot glass with Baileys in it into a glass of beer and then drink. Except we did it with melon stuff, but same diff). Went to bed at like 5:30. Nutssss.

Sunday: Woke upppp... chilled, played Boggle, lol. Then went over to her neighbours again later and played more Cranium and like a bunch of other board games. Then with dinner I had four crantinis so I was pretty much gone for a little bit. I find now I have a much higher tolerance, and I don't like it. Haha, I wanna be a cheap drunk so I don't have to spend a lot of money at the barrrr/on alcohol. But it looks like my cheap-drunkenness days are over, oh well. Anyway so then we like made drinks from this deck of cards they had that had like drink recipes on the back, which were very good. Then just chilled and later went to bed.

Monday: Just woke up and like watched Fantastic Four (actually not that bad, and pretty short, which was a definite plus) and then left and then came home and went to family dinner/New Year's gift exchange, good times all around and now am here and about to head out to Jen's.

I hope you all had a fantastic time at your soirees for the eve of the new year, and I wish you all a lovely 2006.

P.S. Tali - how GOOD is narguilla?

[music |The Obvious Child - Paul Simon]

1. What did you do in 2005 that you'd never done before?
Went to London and Cyprus, Worlds, went to Massad, narguilla, went to grad, got my wisdom teeth out.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't remember any of the ones that I made last year, but I will remember the ones I'm making this year because they're like... actual resolutions, if that makes any sense. Like stuff that I seriously do need to work on.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Nope.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Yes, actually. Not anyone I was really close to, but someone I knew pretty well and my parents were close to.

5. What countries did you visit?
England, Cyprus.

6. What would you like to have in 2006 that you lacked in 2005?
6 acceptance letters.

7. What date from 2005 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
June 28th-August 23rdish... can't exactly remember when camp ended officially. But that timeframe. Because it was the most amazing summer of my life.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Worlds, being Malcat HaDegel (kidding, kidding only kidding).

9. What was your biggest failure?
Interesting that I don't really remember. I guess I could name one, but it wasn't really a failure. Huh. Funny how that works out, that you really only do remember the good stuff.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Getting wisdom teeth out was pretty bad, but other than that not really, no.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Guess. (iPod, just in case you couldn't get the message from my like 57389 bajillion entries where I mention somewhere that I love it.) I actually didn't buy it... well I bought some of it, but it was the best partly-bought thing I own.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Lara. Getting into the Italy program is incredible, and being the only unanimous decision from the judges' panel is even more amazing.


13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
A couple... primarily one person.

14. Where did most of your money go?
Investments/stock market and Shmoozers. Damn Shmoozers taking so much of my money.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Camp! Except I was also soooo unbelievably nervous before I left. So I guess I'll say camp but also second session because then I already knew just how amazing it was and how good of a time I'd have.

16. What song will always remind you of 2005?
So many. Mr. Jones, Float On, Summertime, Hafinali, Shirat Hasticker... so many more.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or sadder? I would probably say happier.
ii. thinner or fatter? Hmm. A good question. I don't know, I haven't weighed myself in the longest time. Probably about the same.
iii. richer or poorer? Richer. Tutoring is lucrative.

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Being bold.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Stressing.

20. How will you be spending Christmas?
I already spent it. Christmas eve we had the Posens over for dinner and then I went to Maya's, and then Christmas night we had the Zlotniks over for dinner and I saw King Kong. [Sidenote: I did the EXACT same thing, minus the King Kong and Maya thing last year except in reverse order. Like last year it went Zlotniks then Posens. It's a family tradition, always has been.]

22. Did you fall in love in 2005?
Nope.

23. How many one-night stands?
None... well not like one-night stand in the traditional sense. One thing I kind of consider to be one-night-standish, but it happened in a foreign country, so...

24. What was your favorite TV program?
Weeds, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy.

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
Yes. LB.

26. What was the best book you read?
Sex, Drugs & Cocoa Puffs by Chuck Klosterman. Also Nine Stories pulls a close second, maybe even a tie.

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Ben Kweller, Panic! At The Disco, Sufjan Stevens.

28. What did you want and get?
To place in top 10 at Worlds and I did.

30. What was your favorite film of this year?
40-Year-Old Virgin.

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I was 17. I fucking watched debating during the day, then came home and celebrated a little with my parents, then went to a debating party which I regret doing. It kind of sucked. But it's my 17th, like it has to suck, you know? 17 is a sucky number.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Having the courage to just dooo it. Nobody knows what 'it' is, but I wish I had done it. And it's not what you think, you sick-minded people you. Who knows, there's always '06...

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2004?
Layered t-shirts and tank tops. I wore a lot of that.

34. What kept you sane?
Family, friends, looking forward to things.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Mark Ruffalo.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
Katrina and the government's response to it.

37. Who did you miss?
My brother when he went to university, and people from camp when camp ended.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
I didn't meet Ingo, technically this year because I think he's always been a BBYO advisor, but he was probably the one person from camp who I didn't know previously. And meeting him was pretty fucking sweet, as he is hilarious.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2005:
If it feels good, do it.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
"Some people say why, why, why, but I say why, why deny the obvious child?" - Paul Simon, The Obvious Child.

Damian from OK Go is gooood-looking. Mm hmm.

Ben Harper got married to Laura Dern. That makes me really happy, actually. Sad but true that I find happiness in celebrity couplings. But still. Good.

I have a new requirement for my future husband and that is that he be willing to play Cranium and/or Hoopla! by Cranium at least once a month.

Maybe Damian from OK Go likes Cranium...

[music |Confessions Of A Broken Heart - Lindsay Lohan]

I'd like to interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this accouncement: that I am officially DONE. Well, ok I still have 1 more to do. But it is SOOOO easyyyyy! But the hard ones, the ones that required essays upon essays about my favourite quote, my most memorable experience, my hero, my favourite book, the most historically significant event of the 90s and so on and so forth are DONE!

And now, to celebrate, here is a 2005 survey.

P.S. Can someone teach me how to do lj cuts? You know, like when you make a link to a survey/pictures or something of that ilk?

2005 Surveyyy

1) Was 2005 a good year for you?: Uh, yeah actually. It was pretty good.

2) What was your favorite moment of the year?: Worlds was probably my favourite MOMENT, and also any random moment at camp - you pick it, I was probably having an amazingly good time.

3) What was your least favorite moment of the year? For this survey's sake, I'll say when I failed a math test. That actually did suck. Like I literally got less than 50%. I mean it was ok in the end 'cause it all balanced out, but man that sucked.

4) Where were you when 2005 began? Liat's family room.

5) Who were you with?: Liat, Rel, Peri, Em, Lars, Serena, Yael and Eidan.

6) Where will you be when 2005 ends? Ilana's cottage.

7) Who will you be with when 2005 ends? Ilana, Alex and lots of randos, lol.

8) Did you keep your New Year's resolution of 2005? I made some but don't remember what they were. So I'm guessing that's no.

9) Do you have a New Year's resolution for 2006? A couple.

10) Did you fall in love in 2005? Nope.

11) If yes, with who? N.A

12) If yes, do they know? I could go for some dim sum right about now.

13) If yes, are you still in love with them? Which is a good thing because I think that's what I'm having for dinner.

14) Do you regret it? La la la.

16) Did you make any new friends in 2005? Yes! And it was great. I love meeting new people/making new friends.

17) Who are your favorite new people in your life? I got so much closer with Anny and Liam this year, and also like a bunch of SJR kids that I'm just now closer with/now I know them, lol.

18) What was your favorite month of 2005? July and August. And March pulls a squeaker.

19) Did you travel outside of the Canada in 2005?: London and Cyprus.

20) How many different countries did you travel to in 2005? 2.

21) Did you lose anybody close to you in 2005? No, thank goodness.

22) Did you miss anybody in the past year? Yeah, like people that I don't see every day.

23) What was your favorite movie that you saw in 2005? We Don't Live Here Anymore, 40-Year-Old Virgin.

24) What was your favorite song in 2005? So many. I got really into Ben Kweller and Ben Harper this year, and discovered some more Simon & Garfunkel songs that I hadn't already heard of. I also got re-acquainted with Paul Simon as a solo artist. I grew up listening to him and just re-discovered it over the summer, so that was good.

25) What was your favorite record bought in 2005? My iPod, which was record enough for me. But seriously, probably X&Y.

26) How many concerts did you see in 2005? 3 majors.

27) Did you have a favorite concert in 2005? Gwen Stefani was a lot of funnn, ya know... and then also Tegan & Sara because they were great and so was Lindy, their opening band. And that introduced me to Lindy.

28) Did you drink a lot of alcohol in 2005? A fair amount. But not like a lot a lot.

29) Did you do a lot of drugs in 2005? I became addicted to Motrin and then beat my addiction. No I'm kidding.

30) Did you do anything you are ashamed of this year? Certainly.

31) What was the worst lie someone told you in 2005? Can't even remember. Oh wait yes I can. But it doesn't matter.

32) Did you treat somebody badly in 2005? I'm sure I did.

33) Did somebody treat you badly in 2005? Probably.

36) How much money did you spend in 2005? I probably dropped like a grand at Shmoozers alone, lol. I hate that overpriced restaurant but they take so much of my money.

37) What was your proudest moment of 2005? Worlds, some camp stuff.

38) What was your most embarrassing moment of 2005? I have like 5 major ones. And they're like seriously embarrassing. But it's all good.

39) If you could go back in time to any moment of 2005 and change it, what would you change? If you know, you'd know.

40) What are your plans for 2006? Go to Worlds, camp, Israel, university... I dunno some more stuff but I would rather not say in this very public forum (how ironic that I censor myself in my own journal. Kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think?)

FIRST LINE OF FIRST POST FOR EACH MONTH OF THIS YEAR.

JANUARY: I spent my last night of 2004 at Teets's with her, Peri, Serena, Rel, Yael, Lars and Em, and Eidan came down for a bit too. [So, evidently, I have a good memory about which people I hung out with that night.]

FEBRUARY: I'm a little sick. [Just for the record, I was talking about a cold I had. Not like some perversion or something, hahaha.]

MARCH: It's been about three hours and I still haven't started my English. [I remember that essay. So tedious.]

APRIL: Ok. Well. I'm going to do a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE update here.

MAY: There is probably nothing more fun than a rousing game of Monopoly on your last free night of Spring Break with four of your friends. [This is true. That was an exceptionally fun night.]

JUNE: Can't believe it's June already. Where does the time go? Away, obviously.

JULY: I've never been muddier. Literally. [This was true. I HADN'T been muddier than I was at camp.]

AUGUST: I'm back, bitches. Update later. Now am running on three hours sleep, so no more.

SEPTEMBER: Back to school tomorrowwwwwwww.

OCTOBER: It is currently two hours and forty-four minutes until I turn seventeen.

NOVEMBER: Went out for sushi tonight for Leah's surprise party and it was so fun.

DECEMBER: Well, I just had an interesting thing happen.

P.P.S. I really like this new Lindsay Lohan song. What is my world coming to? (That's the second time I've asked that in like 4 days.)

Dear World,

If anyone out there watches Weeds and happened to tape the season finale, would you please tell me what happened/send it to me if you live in the GWA? (A term I've coined - like Greater Toronto Area, only... with Winnipeg... yeah easy enough.) I taped it but it has been mistakenly taped over by an anonymous family member. Thank you.

Love, Susan

P.S. I am thisclose to sending in my applications. Seriously. Thisclose. So close that the words 'this' and 'close' don't have a space between them. And that is CLOSE, my friends. That is close.

Merry Christmas, bitches. To quote Collins.

I have absolutely nothing to do tomorrow but do nothing. And it will be grand. I might go see a movie... that's always the most fun because you literally know everyone else in the theatre, as it is all Jews as per usual...

One more essay about why the assassination of Yitzchak Rabin was the most significant story of the 1990s and I am OUTTTTTTTT. Fuckkkk yeah.

I caregave for like 6 hours today so I'm spent. Later.

P.S. Panic! At The Disco... has anyone else heard of them? Because they are amazing. And if you haven't yet heard of them, you should TOTALLY download anything and everything you can get your hands on. Slash buy it on iTunes. If you're legal like that.
