Worst Blogger EVER/

Well...I am deeply ashamed. Deeply, deeply ashamed. Deeply. It's been over a month since I last posted. It's not that I don't feel guilt. It's not that I don't hate myself when I fall asleep at night. It's not that I don't not use too many un-negatives on a not irregular non-basis. It's just that I've been doing a lot of present-buying, traveling, booze-consuming, watching two and a half seasons of the best show on television (Veronica Mars -- holy crap) and giving things up then reincorporating them into my diet then giving them up again. Ah, 2007.

First I apologized for not posting in so long. Now, I'm going to follow up that apology with another apology: this is going to be a very short post. Here are my reasons/excuses: 1) I am in Vancouver right now and I am flying home early tomorrow morning. (Okay, fine, 11AM is not that early, but I've got jet lag. Wait...11 AM in Vancouver means 2PM in Toronto. Excuse #1 officially sucks.) I've been here in the snowed-over version of Vancouver for five days, mainly because there was a Dog's Breakfast photo shoot today and I was required to attend and pose. ("An A Dog's Breakfast Photo shoot?" "A A Dog's Breakfast Photo Shoot"? Nothing looks right. I HATE ARTICLES. And grammar. And pickled ginger, but that's unrelated.) I also got to dogsit and officially bond with my brother David's dog Mars. Cutest dog EVER. Well worth the five hour flight.

2) My second long-winded excuse for a short post is that I have to go online and find someone to take my apartment. Soon. That's right -- my NEW apartment with the DJ neighbour on the West side and the shoot-em-up video game junkie who cheers when he pops someone on the East side. I HAVE to move. I HAVE to break my lease. I HAVE to. There are many people who could handle living where I live: other DJs, other video game addicts, Buddhists, etc. but I may become insane if I don't. Or sane, I guess. That could be cool. Maybe I should stay...

3) My third excuse for a short post is that I can't decide if I have too little to report or too much to report, so I'm not reporting anything at all. I can't decide if I'm overwhelmed by news, or underwhelmed by how little has happened in 30 days.

So instead of posting properly or fixing the rough draft of my new play (my NEW new play), I'm instead going to drink champagne with David and Jane until I fall asleep! Healthy, I know.

But I gave up beer! It's been three weeks. Nice.

Beer-missingly,

Kate

Enjoy! And good luck with the apartment thing. I sympathize. I have two twin two-year-olds who scream constantly living right above me.

Welcome back to the blogosphere, Kate. Don't feel guilty. And yeah, I totally sympathize on the snowed in thing. Been sucking through that same storm front myself of late, on Puget Sound end of it. Ugh. My toes are freezing even as we type.

I've had next-door-neighbors like that. I love my condo, but there are elephants upstairs. I think they're probably 7 and 9. This isn't so bad if I turn the music on. However the shower every morning at 4:30 am that I can hear as though it was in my own bathroom? Oy. Insomnia is teh suck.

I'm sorry to hear about the new apartment. :(

Yay for photographs! I can't wait to see them. And "An A Dog's Breakfast" is technically correct, though it sounds and looks odd. I don't have much use for article, either, but I need to have some knowledge because of my job: I'm a writing tutor.

Ooo, drinking champagne. I have this image in mind of them doing a lot of the that the last couple of days. I was thinking massive amounts of partying is what has been keeping David from posting a new blog regarding the news of the series. :D Congrats!! Will this mean we'll be seeing you weekly? :D Ooh! Happy late birthday, too! :D

It's snowing :D (finnnalllyyy)

Good luck with the apartment hunt, I'm on one too -- except of course - moving right when the weather decides to start acting a little bit lik winter is always fun =P

And. 11AM is early. Totally early. Well if you work second shift or night shift it is :D

You know, 3 long winded excuses for a short post make up for a fairly decently sized post.

And I'm with you on the beer, haven't had any since Christmas. Well, New Years. Heh, that didn't last long. I'm the only female beer drinker in the family and the others used to call me un-ladylike. Before they got over it, like.

Anyway, have fun and have a great year!

Oh dear! You certainly have picked a rather interesting day to come back on, seeing as its the first major snow storm of the year here in Toronto and well, it looks to be rather icy too. *winces* Good luck with the flight! And also, I hope the apartment search goes well! It can't be fun having neighbors like that, so good luck!

Glad to hear something of you again...was already afraid your cats had eaten you or soemthing like that. One never knows!
Anyway you can shorten the Breakfast thingy down to ADB. I think most people now know that abbr. and of course it doesn't need so much typing! I also hate articles!
Good luck with moving again. You'll become a professionall before long, it seems!
I guess you won't come to the London screening of ADB? But could you please ask your brother why he had the insane idea of deciding upon a THURSDAY??? Nobody is able to fly in from Germany or elsewhere on a thursday! A nice saturday would have been far better for all. But enough o fit, your not responsible for your brother's insanity of course – I hope...

God you leave us for a month and then come back with bad news! You shoul'd feel guilty :)

Awww i'm only joking. I'm kind of glad for you that you have to move apartments again; do you really want to have to put up with living with mentally unstable neighbours :D The trouble of moving would be worth it!

No news, how about the news i hear ADB is coming to England?! I'd call that news, i can't wait to see the film! Though hopefully we won't have David running in circles worrying about his new high deffinition baby having monosounds (is that even a word?? Meh!

I wish i was snowed in here, about 17 meteres snowed in. I miss snowboarding! My board has dust on it! Dust!

Congrats on giving up the beer! It's good for you! And everyyyone knows that expensive champaigne is good for you *alot of eye rolling going on in this very boring and cold college, good working time spent here blogging :)*

And i tottttally agree with marie! Now you can move back into some form of loft to satisfy your blog needs :)

Wow this is a long blog, i should really post on mine instead but then i'd miss you.

Well i was going to try writing abit in french to keep you busy but 1. I forgot all my funny french if ever it existed and 2. You sound really busy with your many and recent call to fame :D So happy for you!

Much love and I don't need to wish you a good new year because to be honest i know it's going to be amazing! Can't wait to see you and David and everyone hopefully if you come to London or wherever it's going to be, and if i get tickets which i really hope i do, i'll have to sneak in if i don't :)

Shutting up now :)

Don't think it's the worsed blog ever.. there are worse *don't say names*

OMG you watch Veronica Mars? which episode? ok sorry fangirly here but hey it's Jaime Ray Newman (Stargate love^^) and I think my first tv love Rodney Rowland! (Space: Above And Beyond is such a cool show.. go. watch it! and if you can't find it wask David he has to knwo if if not he isn't geeky enough ;) Besides at least you got DVDs we here not *cry* ) Anyway, you have to love Veronica mars only for the gueststars I mean Charisma Carpender and Alyson Hannigan! Steven Guttenberg (mmh.. yummy in Airborne with Torri and Sean) and Ed Begley Jr., who seems to follow me around everywhere I go he is teher! *eek*
ok enough fangirl talk (it's your fault don't mention the one show that finally has my name on/in/with it.. no not Mars PLUS great gueststars)

btw. I think you get my thoughts send to you because yesterday I thought of you and how much I loved to read a new post and there you are writing one (or writing on on not writing one) and it was the same last time! it's getting creepy.

And I totally envy you with snow. it's only cold and rainy and the wind blowing cold and *arg* With snow you can at least feel like winter.

I were perfect for your lost because I never hear anything and if it happen one in hundret years I don't care^^

as for the neighbour issue, i sympathise with you (my flat mate are definitely trying to drive me mad as well...). one of my friends thought that there was some kind of conspiracy against each and every one of us... maybe there's an "anti-Kate league" as well among your neighbours... good luck with your flat-research...

Finally! There's someone else who gets jetlagged going west!! It's apparently fairly contrary to known science. But send me in an easterly direction? I'm reset by the next morning. Send me west? I'm miserable for DAYS!

That sucks that you have to move again, but you shouldn't keep trying to live in misery.

And when you get home and feel like taking another break, fill us in on this new new play! (And maybe update us on the old new play?)

Blogger Owl Eyes said...

Aw yay, you posted... even if it was, in essence, about nothing. It still made breakfast that much more enjoyable.

{Is it strange to have complete strangers enjoy their breakfast more because they read your blog post about nothing while consuming their breakfast? I'm sorry, I'm feeling a tad existentialist at the moment}

God luck with the apartment thinger. Can't say I really understand what you're going through, as I still live with the 'rents, [insert wan smile here]

Also, good luck with the beer. They say it takes 21 days to break a habit, so if it's been 3 weeks, you should be good. It's all psychological. Just say "no". Or something like that. {That's easy for me to say because I never started drinking, even after I turned 19. I'm such a straightedge loser, haha. ^.^}

Anyways, I'm off to have another day of my life consumed by university and chemistry and stats profs who don't realise that they are melting my brains with an overload of information.

Please post again soon so I can have something else to read over breakfast, :)

In your absense David Nykl has been keeping us squirrels (pirahnas? squirrels? no...I like squirrels better....besides I doubt Criz would draw pirahnas for us.) busy and entertained.

Good luck in finding a new apartment. I just got new neighbors. You could come be my roommate while my hubby is overseas.

Oh Kate, welcome back to our little world. It is great to hear from you again.
Your updates are always so amusing and entertaining. Thanks for that.
You did not mention Rufus or Martha. I hope they are doing well.

It’s great to hear about the photo shoot for “A Dog’s Breakfast”. It lets us know that things are moving right along with the movie.

Give Mars a nice pat on the head from us and give David and Jane a congratulatory hug from all his squirrelly fans.

Take care, stay warm and have a safe trip home.
Cheers!

My solution for the whole article conundrum is to restructure the sentence. So you can say there was "a photoshoot for A Dog's Breakfast" and you're good to go.

Glad you are back and had an enjoyable holiday! When I was in an apartment I really had no problems with neighbors but I was rarely there. Now I own a house and have a pesky neighbor that paints the house BRIGHT YELLOW (which I can see out of my kitchen window every morning) and complains that our dog barks when we let her outside. What's up with that?! Champagne, or wine for that matter is better than beer anyway. Good luck with that.

Have a great 2007!!!

No, it was not a very short post! (Or your short posts are bigger than my usual posts).

No, it was not a long time. Just longer than the usual :x lol

And there's no reason to apologize, you have your busy busy life to attend to.

I'm not sure if I'm sorry to hear that you're moving again. The one thing I'm sure (I think I am...) is that it would be better for you to have a quiet place, rather than game addicts/DJ's turning your brain into soup. I hope you have better luck with the new apartment.

Bye! See (read) you soon?

I am so glad you're back.

On the home front (pun was intended *g*), I can sympathise, I moved from a flat in London (UK) which was very noisy. Am in a detached house 20m outside Edinburgh... very peaceful.
Am willing to do a swap - on a temporary basis - perfect for Edinburgh Festival time *lol*.

So, you've given up beer and are drinking champagne instead - methinks the Hollywood lifestyle is rubbing off on you.
(*tuts and shakes head* 'she used to be such a nice down to earth girl' *lol*)

Have a lovely time anyway, and good luck with the apartment hunting.

To be honest, I always find that when I'm busy, time just flies. Take this month for instance - I've been busy with work and personal life that it's going by so quickly and in 2 weeks' time, I'm off to London (I'm in Sydney by the way).

Glad to hear that ADB is taking off but sorry to hear that you have to give up the apartment.

Take care and do enjoy the champagne! I'm not a beer person myself but unfortunately it means that I drink the drinks with even more alcohol!

I'm with Elvin - I'd've just rearranged the whole sentence, but then you'd lose the whole grammar-game fun;)

Sorry to hear the noisy neighbors have made it so impossible for you; maybe you can find someone to take it over for you. When I was in SC, I added a roommate and we moved to a townhouse in the same complex. A few months later I lost my job and had to move, so her brother moved in with her and they took over the lease with no trouble. Don't know if anything like that might be an option for you or not.

And, hey, a month's not so bad. :: glances at own blog with six-month-or-more gaps :: Yeah, you're doing fine. Remember, this is fun, not work. You only need to worry about being present every day if you're getting paid for it;)

Break the lease! Living with people who drive you crazy is definitely a downer. I'd blame them for making the blog late...bad annoying videogamers! I lived with one last semester, though she went beyond her video craze. She would play Warcraft with her boyfriend across the hall, both doors open yelling to each other. This was in addition to the relgious rituals involving knives/candles(all banned in dorms), the curses on me for eating meat in the room, and the multiple illicit sessions she had on my bed when I was sleeping at the barn. Yuck.

I'm officially the worst blogger. I put up snippets of thoughts and strange news articles, or not update for weeks on end.

Business is automatically an excuse! It looks like everyone's been running around lately, especially for "A Dog's Breakfast." It's surprising you can get around and do everything, especially with this crazy weather hitting the States.

Oh, there's no fast and hard rule on how much you have to blog. If you're busy with life, that's great! And photo shoots for ADB? EVEN BETTER! I can't wait to see that film. I am green with envy for friends who saw it in LA and soon in London and when oh when will it hit NYC?

But you know if you feel really really guilty, you can always post pictures from your time in Vancouver. Posting pictures does wonders to make the guilt go away (wonder if she'll buy that?) Hmm... ;)

A ce sujet j'ai trouvé les textes de lois en vigueur en Ontario pour le droit des locataires (Law.gov.on.ca). Les renseigner que chaque locataires à le droit à "la jouissance paisible de son local"...donc si ça peut les refroidir un peu et t'éviter de déménager ! L'effet disuasif peut faire son effet...

because the other squirrels urged me to post it here ... otherwise I would have been to chicken to do it *blushes*

I should point out though that I like the layout, but the combination with another site just didn't work too well the other night ;)

so erm ... what to call it
lofty pie ?!

A long long time ago
I can still remember
when reading blogs didn't bother me
I should have know these times had gone
why do I edit yet 'nother song ?
when squirrels should just climb a tree.

But then along came Hewlett's Kate
and wrote another blog update:
with lovely green on dark background
it was then, that I found out ...

At first I simply had to blink
I should've seen that obvious hint
and it got worse, I could just squint
when on the Y!M I got a link.

So byebye Missus Sight of the Eye
Read through Kate's text, went to Y!M next
and the trouble was mine
'Cause the change was too much range for my eye to get by
The change was just too much for my eye
just too much to get by

And did you read through all her site
then change to texts of black on white ?
It's no fun, I'm telling you
what my eyes were going through

I know she didn't mean to hurt
not even those who come to lurk
Just poke some fun at her big bro
who does the same, just so you know

Now, tiredness takes over much
can hardly type another Satz
See ? English slips out of my head
it's finally time to go to bed.

Don't feel bad about breaking your lease. I swear, it doesn't matter in any way, shape or form. (I say this on the authority of having had 10 Toronto apartments in the last eight years, two of which I had to flee, although not in the dead of night.) Sleep, on the other hand, matters.

Hi Kate -- I hope things are going smoothly for you and the katzen. Wish I could be in London when you and David and Jane hit town -- it would be fabulous to see ADB there, but of course, I have no way of doing that. *sad sigh*

I still have hope that you guys will do a Seattle showing at some point, and that you might be able to come out for that. Please let us know when things are settled for you again, and best of luck on your apartment situation.

Congratz on such a successful movie!!! It's too bad that you have to give up your appartment that you just bought. That's really a downer. But it's not worth staying if you can't have any peace!

By the way, thanks for recommending Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump! I went to see it with my friend the last Saturday it was playing. Very original idea. It provoked a huge range of emotions. I really enjoyed it!!

Heh. The snow wasn't that bad here... Okay, a bit insane for Vancouver, but the rain's washed it all away! =) So come back soon! *grins*

Great to hear that you had an awsome holiday and nice to read a new post from you. Sorry to hear that you have to move again--I know that noisy neighbours can be the worst (just like really bad roommates)Nice to hear that Dog's Breakfast is getting such a huge reception (all the more wanting to see it) At least the giving up of beer isn't for med reason--I really miss my glass :(

OMG Kate...you think YOU'RE bad? YOU? I hadn't checked this blog since...um...well, a while ago. And Fey you are SO dead meat for not telling me Kate posted!

*scans comments*

Wait a minute. There isn't a Fey comment. OMG! I got here before SHE did? That's impossible. She must have just not commented. EW my grammar stinks too! HEH.

Oh, and it's "An 'A Dog's Breakfast' photo shoot."

Anyway...SO happy to hear about David and Jane's news. That's great. Another sister for you, Kate! YAY! :)

Jane's great. And so is champagne. And bonding with Mars...so cute.

And HEY! I'll be in Vancouver in MARCH...and y'all chose NOW to do the photo shoot? Darn it! I would have been there for support!

:)

Not that you know me from Adam. But still! It's the moral of the issue.

My brother took on a 12 month lease, and shortly afterward was offered a job about an hours' drive away. The Real Estate Agent won't let him break the lease until someone else offers to take the place on.

It was a bit of a downer, but the upside is that the new job comes with a 3-bedroom house Rent Free! Life has its ups and downs. I'm sure you'll find something suitable. Good Luck!

hehe No worries Kate! Oh and how fantastic is Veronica Mars!! My friend got me addicted last year *needs more* Oh and have you seen Kristen Bell in this ---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqEyDMPBrsc

It's funny, especially because I'd never seen Kristen in anything else but Veronica Mars all sweet and innocent looking. Well minus the Teaser gun.

(1) VMars = excellent, although I think it's stumbling about a bit here in the third season. At the moment, I kind of just want Veronica and Logan to die tragically in some kind of overly dramatic lovers' pact so we can have the Mac (who, seriously, cutest thing EVER)/Piz/Wallace/Keith/Weevil show. If I never see Logan get all weepy and teary-eyed again, it'll be way too soon.

(2) Flying within the US isn't usually too much trouble for me, although doing the bi-coastal thing can be a bit of a hassle. But the five hours flying west from the UK to the East Coast kills me every time. If Toronto->Vancouver got you, I can only imagine you're still stumbling about in a bit of a haze after coming back from London, and the weather is likely not cooperating. *shines bright light in your eyes. in a helping way. really.*

(3) Saw that the Fringe Toronto lottery was recently held and didn't see you among the lottery winners. Are you going to participate as part of a company this year, or off-fringe, or...? I'd be interested in hearing about your experience of it - blog fodder, if you will.

(4) Giving up beer sucks, but it would be worse to give up wine. Or god, cider. Or, oh, oh, COCKTAILS. THAT would suck. See? Perspective!
