Totally Random

— I’ve been hating bedtime because I keep having trouble sleeping. Last night was a one off.
— The maple tree in front of our apartment is STILL all green and bushy!
— We’ve been keeping all the windows in our apartment closed for a couple of weeks now or else I would freeze.
— I think the latest trend among Canadian geese this year is to fly in Batman logo formation.
— I don’t care about iPods. I really don’t. Though if I had to go to a Hallowe’en party, I’d go as a broken iPod nano.
— I don’t care about brands when it comes to clothing but I can be a brand-fanatic when it comes to grocery.
— The prospect of picking up photos I took with the vintage cameras from the photolab makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
— Troy is the biggest fan of my cooking (obviously).
— I think turkey is the new and improved chicken.
— If I started my own religion (appropriately named the Church of Firda), the followers would have to religiously go to thrift stores/antique markets/garage sales every Sunday to find vintage cameras to donate to the church (ie. me).
— I’m a self-proclaimed heathen. By my father’s religious standard, I am SO going to hell. And I don’t even drink alcohol!
— I’m in love with Yoplait Source yoghurt. So good.
— I’ve run out of random things to say.

  1. Maples are my favourite trees. Especially in the autumn when they turn all yellow, red and orange. I hope the maple tree in front of your apartment soon realises it really is autumn – time to get all colourful. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. oooo, when you said maple tree, i immediately thought of canadian maple syrup… any chance of getting any? in exchange for dutch or indo goodies? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Have you tried Melatonin for the sleeping? You can get it at Target and stores like that–or health food stores. Really helps me, when I need it, and doesn’t make me groggy in the AM. The only time it didn’t work was the night before I moved from Wisconsin to Paris. Frankly, I don’t think a sledgehammer would have worked that night.
    Google it if you’re interested–it’s a synthetic version of the hormone your body naturally produces to go to sleep. And it’s very cheap.
    Thanks for your Firdaengine. I am working on my own template, and very much a beginner, so this is proving very helpful.
