Uh oh, I'm half seriously thinking of joining the armed forces.

I mean, it's the army (or navy or wot), I'd be mad, but, but.. they'd pay for school. And I'd get to go round on boats in the summer. This is probably not as fun as it sounds. Still, I find myself trying to do chin-ups (I can't), and sit-ups (not many) and push-ups (god help me) to see how hard I'd have to work to meet the entrance standards (very).

Ah well, I have two years to think about it until I start in Pharm. Hopefully I'll have come to my senses.

Speeeaking of fitness, though, hurray, my latest get-fit 5 year plan is working! I lost x pounds last week, which was exactly the amount the book predicted. So: whee! This week I'm not as sore as I was last week.

My schedule is starting to drive my boyfriend a bit mad, but he's such a patient fellow. 6 more weeks and then a month of delightful lassitude. I think in January I'll start volunteering with Canadian Blood Services, even though I'll be taking two courses and in the midst of RRSP season. At least I'll be living with m'boy then. I am starting to look at all potential sources of reference letters for pharmacy with a hungry eye. I love working for my dad, but he's useless for a reference, being well, my DAD, let me tell you. I don't know any pharmacists well neither. Ooh, hey, maybe I can tap someone at my mom's office, where I've been doing some part-time work (because you know, I'm not ALREADY busy enough..) for a letter. They're not related to me.

Blah, blah, blah! Who cares, I'll sort it out in 2003.

bouillabase mix? where in god's name would you get bouillabase mix? sometimes this book is a bit odd. (raspberry mustard? yeah, I'm sure that's at safeway..) I'll use tomato soup instead.

tomato soup! duh nuh nuh nuh duh nuh, I like it a lot. duh nuh nuh nuh duh nuh. tomaaaaaato sooooouuuuupp...
