Well I was going to do my Friday Five yesterday, but blogger was down for repairs, so I'll do them now instead.

1. What is your favorite scary movie?
I don't really have one, I think they're all pretty stupid, I can't remember the last one I actually liked - although Blair Witch scared the pants off of me (before I found out it was all a hoax)
2. What is your favorite Halloween treat?
Tootsie Rolls, especially the bite sized flavored ones.
3. Do you dress up for Halloween? If so, describe your best Halloween costume.
I haven't dressed up for Halloween in ages. I guess my best costume was probably the clown suit that my mom made for me when I was about 5 or 6
4. Do you enjoy going to haunted houses or other spooky events?
They're good for "shits and giggles" but I don't make a point of going.
5. Will you dress up for Halloween this year?
Doubtful, but who knows what may come up.

Forking TELUS Mobility. I have a plan that I really like, and thus far I've been quite pleased with my service. Unfortunately, they now claim that I can no longer maintain my current plan as a month-to-month customer. If I want to keep said plan, I must sign a contract (minimum 1 year, maximum 3 years). I specifically went with clearnet (now telus) because I had been stuck in a contract before (with Rogers AT&T) and nothing good came of it. Actually, it really sucked, because my phone was stolen, and I was stuck having to replace it with a piece of crap, because a piece of crap was all I could afford - all because I was stuck in a contract.

Why not find a comparable plan and stay as a month-to-month you ask? Because their new plans (compared to the one I have now) SUCK. The features I use the most are Caller ID and Voicemail - I like to know who's calling, and I like getting all of my messages (not up to 3 at a time thank you very much). These just happen to be the features that they're cutting on their new and improved plans. *grr* Not only that, but I currently enjoy unlimited incoming minutes on top of the 500 that I pay for, and as a month-to-month all I'd get is the 500 minutes. Not that I'd really miss them, just another thorn in my side when I think that I'll end up forking out around $10/month more for a shitty plan, just to get what I need and want.

Needless to say, I'm a tad frustrated. Perhaps this will pass. All I say is they better have something good to give me for signing their damn contract.

Lucky me, I actually get to read a book that I pick out all by myself for school! Normally my readings consist of dry theoretical ramblings written by some prehistoric academic - but this time, I get to read a contemporary novel of my choosing! For those of you who don't remember school readings (or who don't share my love of books), i'll just inform you that this is a really exciting prospect! Hence my extreme use of exclamation marks!!!!!

I picked up said book last night, and it's really so good that I devoured half of it, while reading well into the night - I simply couldn't put it down! So I thought I'd share it all with you. If you're looking for an interesting dark comedy, pick yourself up a copy of Cargo of Orchids by Susan Musgrave. Apparently she's had a career of primarily poetry composition - so if you're into that (and if she's as good a poetess as authoress) it could possibly be well worth it.

And on another writing note, good luck to those of you (devon and arwen among others) who have undertaken nanowrimo. Perhaps I'll undertake it myself one of these years.
Hmm... yet another snafu while using blogspot... if I weren't so cheap, I might consider changing to the paid version to avoid all this trouble.

So apparently I now Fark. Lucky me. So now all of you readers get to share the bounty of useless but highly amusing stuff that I deem worthy to hang out here in perpetuity. Today's Fark of the day is the Bill of No Rights - words of wisdom to live by if you ask me, and unrefutable proof that not all Americans are as stupid as we think they are (although the fact that the few smart ones had to write this means that most Americans are indeed as stupid as we think they are). Holy run-on sentence batman.

And the day is shaping up to be pretty darned good. I haven't actually gotten any homework done - perhaps not wise - but I did make some tasty chicken caesar pasta salad, and a tasty new CD. Better than nothing, right?
I seriously feel like today will be exponentially better than yesterday was. heh. I get so moody sometimes.
