How I Pass the Time in Boring Classes

I apologize for my recent blogging absence. My only excuse is that I am a pretty big procrastinator, and have spent the better part of the last week trying to will myself to start and complete an assignment that I had due today. I am proud to announce that I started the assignment at about 11:00 last night and officially finished it at about 10:30 this morning. I am currently sitting in my boring Substantive Editing class and trying to successfully waste three hours. This is my thousands of dollars in tuition money being put to good use!

I have a couple of things that I have been thinking about blogging about, so I figure I will break it up into several different blogs. "C" took me to Niagara Falls this weekend, so I may as well start there.

We left Saturday evening and came home Sunday evening and overall we had a nice weekend. Niagara is somewhere that "C" and I have been going to for some time now, and we always enjoy ourselves. By now I think we have seen every "touristy" thing you can possibly find in Niagara, so this time we kind of stayed away from all of that. We didn't go down to the falls, we didn't walk Clifton Hill or any of that. We went down specifically because we had tickets to see a show, I wanted to shop and "C" wanted to go to the casino, so that's what we did.

So we started off Saturday night at the Casino. I hate the casino. Not just Niagara's casino's, pretty much every casino. I can't justify putting twenty dollars into a machine to watch it spin around for about five minutes and that's it. It's just not something that amuses me. "C" on the other hand LOVES the casino. Problem is, he's not very good at it. He has absolutely no will power. This particular time he put a twenty dollar bill in one machine and withing five minutes was about around two hundred dollars. Now in my mind....this is an excellent time to cash out and leave. Technically he did what he came to do. He won money! But he's mentality....completely opposite. He instead wants to believe that the machine's want to give him money. So he continues to play....and play...and play...and play. So yeah, two hours later he walked out forty dollars down and in a bad mood. I don't get it.

Moving on to Sunday. This is when we did my favourite thing....shopping! This is also where "C" and I switch roles. In this situation I am pretty much out of hand. I can convince myself to buy pretty much anything, and make it so that I "NEEDED" it, not just that I wanted it. "C" on the other hand take son my role in the casino by following me around and making comments on the fact that I am wasting my money and could be spending it on better things. I disagree. So I mangaed to do some damage. And (here is some exciting news) I GOT MY BOOTS!!!! You might remember me blogging about them earlier. I did not get the exact same ones that I showed you, but I did get similar ones, for about sixty dollars less. Here's a picture:

I also splurged and bought these:I love shoes, these are adorable and they were ten dollars. This needs no justification!

I also bought a pair of skinny jeans and several new shirts.

So yes, we both ended up spending more money then we had and therefore, all in all, had a good weekend!

Those shoes are very cute, as are the boots!

It's a bummer about the casino though, $200 would have been nice pocket change :)

lol, I guess we both have our addictions :)

I don't believe the machines will pay out... I secretly just go there to "donate" to the OLG (Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation). They desperately need my help... Just like those starving kids in Africa.

I'd like to point out you wouldn't have gotten the boots unless I spotted that Outlet Warehouse. I want my Puma shoes! :(

those heels are too cute! and the boots too!

It really makes me want to go shoe shopping now. I'm thinking I really do "need" more winter shoes since I don't think I can get away with UGGS at work this year..
