Hiking, Travelling and Dreaming

This was intended to be my thoughts on travelling, but I'll have to tame my wanderlust for a while longer....

Friday night, after Clive's party Jayne accidentally called 8-1-1 (as opposed to 9-11). Woman was really sick and it seemed serious. There were several signs that these men were fraud EMT's (according to Max- Critter's customer from the cafe):

-they were eating her Tums
-they wanted to move in and us to make them breakfast
-they wanted to come to our next party
-they stayed 45 minutes and chatted
-they asked where my parents were (okay, I just added that in, cuz I'm sick of getting carded!!!)

Okay... gtg study

Zen and the art of audiology

Did you ever wonder why your own voice sounds different (to you) on a recording as compared to while you speak??

My friends, that is because of the occlusion effect. When you hear your own voice, you are hearing it through both bone conduction (when sound waves travel through your skull to stimulate your cochlea) and air conduction. On a recording, you are only hearing air conduction.

That's my tidbit... and in a few weeks I get to screen kids' hearing. Use fancy ear instruments... test hearing... look in ears...

Anyways, c'est tout. I'm gonna go home and have some herbal tea, put on my pj's and finish studying:)

Stupid spam comments. I tried to prevent them, but guess what I consider spammy comments differs from what my blog considers spammy comments.

I'm having an awful time with my takehome. It's taking me way too long and I'm getting nowhere. It's due demain matin and I just can't seem to get one of the questions...

I also need to get on with my other projects/classes...

My cuzin Matt spent Friday night in jail... He beat up a female cop, broke a window of the cop car and once again his mouth got him in trouble!! I have zero sympathy for him...

Anyways, I'm gonna go eat and think about oral motor development and try to finish this damn takehome!

Today I went to the dentist (first time since my Durocher days). It was free, (thank god for mcgill's dental insurance) and in Westmount. The dentist and his assistant both took pity on me. They asked me where I lived and I said "down the hill in St Henri". They said well, at least it does the trick!! They don't wanna take out my wisdom teeth and didn't make fun of my dental problems. My previous dentists always want me to get braces and correct my bite ($$$).

I've gotta get back to travail, got a few midterms next week and 2 assignments. I am stuck on a phonological development question and can't ask my classmates cuz it's independant..

I wanna join the outdoors club, not that I have the time, but it's cheap membership and I'd get to rent cheap gear from 'em as well as be able to go on trips.

Oh yah, almost oublied... 2 Halloween Parties

Friday October 28- Gordie's place (Above Sheinarts)
Saturday Oct 29 - Terrence's place-
note: this is the first time that the coldwater flat will not be hosting a party... so Terrence is hosting one in our honour...

I'm going to Terry's soon. I told myself I'd do work, but I've read so much about hearing today (studying audiology, then readings for another class that was about hearing screenings). By so much, I mean I'm sick of it for tonight and want a break...

The highlight of my day was the cortisol cream I bought.

Black Pants to cover excema $20
Aveeno lotion to moisturize legs $8
Cortisol lotion to get rid of itchiness $3.99
Not spending hours scratching the patches till bleeding -- priceless

** That's my mastercard story **

Now I shall get to work. I went to Joanne's step class (half an L step over the step).

C'est tout!!

I seem to have abandonned the blogging, like most of my bloggies that I link to. Jayne (aka Nana's favourite grand daughter) still blogs and JB.

Where am I?

Still in montreal in my office or windowless room. I can't sleep, the 3 cups of coffee and endless cups of tea are working their magic. But I wanna sleep. (And the guys arrived before Critter had a chance to talk ... damn)

Tomorrow is my last day at the daycare in Westmount. I'll miss those 3 year olds. Sometimes I wish I were that young again. I'll also have to study, another exam wednesay.

I should probably take advantage of this insomnia and study or study to fall asleep...

And I'll publically thank Jayne for her patience in dealing with my mom( no offense mom) as well as her culinary skills.

Bon nuit:)

PS Elysia & Laura still ain't back?!
