Double Trouble

Well, the Greek party on Sunday was fabulous. There was more people there than I had thought there would be, so that was good. The only downside was that it was on a Sunday, which meant that everyone had school/work the next day. But I guess even if it were on Saturday, everyone would have church, so it's all the same I suppose. The Intermediate and Senior groups danced (which got a little long) because we started late; however, we got the party started. We were there until 1:30-ish, and even when we left they were still dancing. Obviously, though, it wouldn't be a Greek party unless it went into the wee hours of the night.

On monday night, my sister and I had our night class then we went to Louis' for the "Theory of a Deadman" concert. When we got there, though, they said the band wouldn't be on until 11:00pm, so we decided to go to Beily's to waste time because it was way too loud in there. It was quite fun, despite the fact that it was only the two of us. There's nothing like sister-bonding time! Then we went back to Louis' for the concert and met up with Michelle and some of her friends. The concert was good (even though I only know a few of their songs); they sounded really good, but it was SO LOUD! My ears were ringing for a long time afterwards.

Needless to say, it was a good two days of partying.

Back in Business

Wow... it's been a long time since my last blog. Surprisingly enough though, not a whole lot has happened! But I guess I'll just update you on my activities this past year.

My summer was spent at the restaurant, at the lake, and dancing. Folkfest, of course, was the highlight of the summer. Actually, we performed (Greek dances) at a couple other places this past summer as well such as "Taste of Saskatchewan", "Centennial Day", "Garlic Festival", and yeah. I'm sure there were some other places, but that was a long time ago so it doesn't really even matter. We got bumped out of performing at the Greek Oneiro in Saskatoon (whatever!), but we still had some fun at the Greek Night in Swift Current. Anyways... enough about that.

I also started University this year (woohoo!!)... HAHA - NOT! I took Arts & Science cause I wanted to do something with Foreign Affairs/UN, but now I have decided to switch into Commerce, which just turned out to be a big pain, but we'll see how it goes.

Hmm... lets see what else is new... Oh yeah, My brother came home on December 5th, 2005, for those of you who don't read his much more up-to-date blog.

Then there was Christmas, New Years, and all those other little events throughout the year.

Over February break my parents, Mariah, and I went to Mexico. We were on the Pacific side where there are mountains and whatever else. It reminded us all of Greece; though the ocean was definitely nothing compared to the Med. The weather was so nice... I can't wait until it warms up here. Not that I should be complaining though, cause the weather has been pretty mild. Oh, we also went on an $8 Million yacht! It was absolutely gorgeous inside. Granite counters/floors, stainless steel kitchen, etc. You might ask, why were we on a yacht? Pure luck. It was the yacht of the President of Coca Cola Mexico. That was pretty sweet. So anyways...

Well, that's about all. This Sunday, February 26th, there is a Greek party at the Pacific Ballroom. We're "performing" there, if you could call that. Anyways, everyone's welcome; there will be supper, dancing, and no jeans! Take care and be there!
