Stay tuned for the another poll of what I should buy next.
Now for my review of The Nanny Diaries. I liked it. I give it 4/5. I love chick flicks and there are a few elements that the movie must have in order for me to truly love it:
- Hot girl with hot clothes - no one wants to watch an ugly girl. If she wear great clothes , it's a bonus. Don't you watch movies for inspiration?
- Hot guy - Hello? Eye candy!!!
- Crying - I must cry at least once during the movie.
- Soundtrack - when there is music that relates to a scene in the movie, all the better.
With that said, I deducted 0.25 because there was a hot girl but she didn't wear any great clothes (after all, she was a nanny) and then I deducted 0.25 because it only maybe me choke up a tiny bit, no full out crying and another 0.50 because there was no soundtrack and if there was, the music sucked because I don't remember any of it. Overall, it's a good movie to watch if you are a mom, if you've lived in NY or if it's a night out with the girls (because Chris Evans is hot, well, I seem to think so). Anyway, it's a funny movie and the kid makes some cute remarks. But I would wait to watch it on DVD. Luckily, we had passes and gift certificates so it made our movie night a free night.
Thank you Jes, Gina and Trix for the company. We must do it again soon. Next time, we won't buy so much popcorn, fries and nachos.

The first home I lived in was an apartment in
The movie I recall watching was E.T. My dad took me and E.T. freaked me out. I hid under my jacket the whole time. To this day, I am still scared of E.T.
I wasn’t really placed but I won an award for History in grade 8. The reason I got the medal was because I had the highest mark in History class.
I don’t remember, I am sure that I had many others before but two that stick out in my mind are Alvin & the Chipmunks Christmas and Milli Vanilli.
Some Megmix CD with dance songs
In sixth grade, Patrick Tracey broke up with me, or maybe we just split.
First Kitchen Fiasco
This – I can’t recall.
I still don’t have my license so I am waiting to get my first car.
First Credit Card
Bank of Nova Scotia VISA, as for my first purchase…who knows…
First Email Address
First Cell Phone
It’s still the same phone number so I rather not post it on here. I do remember my first phone was a Sony Ericsson flip phone.
I don’t remember any names but Ross and I had some fish.
First Big Purchase
It was probably a stereo.

When you read magazines, especially Canadian magazines, you find all these cute things. The cool thing about Canadian magazines, like Lou Lou, they will list where you can buy these cute things. One company that I can across was FOXY ORIGINALS. The jewelry company was started by two girls who were attending University of Western Ontario. So since this line of jewelry is home grown, I had to check it out.
While Marilen was here, I took her to THE LOFT where they sell Foxy Originals. She bought this really cool necklace in red and white. I have yet to purchase something from them but I am waiting for the right piece to come along. Note: not all items you see online are available at The Loft. I should get the necklace that Marilen got in another colour because we tend to buy one thing that is the same to commemorate our trips visiting each other (while I was in San Fran - Marilen, Theresa, Gino and I all got Berkel. This time it was suppose to be this $15 dress but maybe I should make it the necklace instead. I am going to Square One tonight, so maybe I will check to see what colours they have left!

I would like to go away in November. To where...I don't know. I guess I will add in a poll to see where my readers think I should go. There is Mexico for a wedding (A & E), DR for maybe a girls trip with some girls I could get to know (R, M & G) or Cuba with miQ (the only island out of the three we have not been to together).
All I know is that I want to be somewhere to get my TAN ON =)
To the left is my new fav non-alcoholic drink...the ARNOLD PALMER. Marilen introduced it to us when she came for her visit. She first ordered it at Moxie's and the waitress had no idea what it was, she thought it was an alcoholic beverage and asked Marilen if she wanted to "Moxie size it". A few days later when I was at Ruby Tuesday in Niagara Falls, I asked for half ice tea, half lemonade. When the waiter brought me my drink, he says, "Here's your Arnold Palmer". So, some know what it is and some don't. The cool thing is at Walmart, they sell a 6 pack - 2 cans of Minute Maid lemonade and 4 cans of Nestea ice tea. What a combo!!! Perfect for an Arnold Palmer.

You know how you have friends that come and go in and out of your life? Some stay for awhile and others last forever. Well, on Friday night, miQ and I ran into my Charlie. I saw him at a local sushi bar and finally got to meet his "better half". She's a really sweet girl and a perfect match for him. We chatted for a bit before they left. To our surprise, when we asked for the bill, we were informed by our waitress that our meal was taken care of by our friends. I could kill Beej but miQ and I thought it was such a nice gesture. We do have to return the favor.
[I don't have any new photos of me and Charlie (Beej) so this old school one will have to do]
Well, I have been on a search for this traveling case and I have found one - Baggallini Jewelry Square. I called a retailer here in Toronto and although they don't carry the square, she will order it for me. Now I just have to get my butt up to Yorkville to place an order. I am so excited but I am nervous because I don't know how much it will cost!!!
So, if you are asking, why blarkness.blogspot.com? I heard "blarkness" from Beej and it's what he called me when he saw me after one of my vacations. See, I love tanning. Yes - I know that it's bad for me but I can't help worshipping the warmth and colour the sun gives to me.
This blog won't be about my tanning escapades, it will be about random things. It will give me something to do for the next two weeks while my boss is on vacation. Let's see how long I can keep it up for...
Welcome and enjoy...
