I have been in Wolfville, N.S visiting Miss Hilary Ferguson since Tuesday and it has been an absolute blast! One thing we have been doing is watching a ridiculous amount of episodes of the British teen drama Skins. This show is so scandalous! I have been hearing about it for the last couple of years and I had seen clips of it before, but I had no idea how awesome it was! There are two seasons complete and we watched one and a half. The problem with the third season is that there is only two characters that return from the first two and that are not even ones I am interested in. Bummer! Well, the Brits really know how to push the envelope and this show just proves that. If I had children I do not think I would like them to watch it considering how much, sex and drugs are within. You will all fall in love with my two fav characters: Sid and Chris. Hilary and I have been walking around and yelling out things in a British accent. We were on a rampage on Wednesday. BOLLOCKS! TOSSER! SAFE! BLOODY HELL! THAT’D BE THE FUCKING TICKET!

Oh god, I have been sooooo sick. Saturday was probably the worst of the lot and I stayed in bed until nine thirty that night because I had an ichat date with the lovely Miss Gillis at ten (a shower was in need so I did not frighten her to death). Our two and a half hour conversation definitely lifted my spirits and I am sending lots of well wishes and love her way for her trip to Australia (hella jealous!!) I had to work Sunday and yesterday which was rough but could have been much worse, plus one of my darling co-workers came in a bit early both days to help me out, ROCK! Last night was the first time since Friday that I had seen any of my lady friends (that is a BIG deal to me). On my way home I picked up some Neocitron having heard from many that they swear by it. If you know me well, then you would know that I am not down when it comes to taking drugs. I wanted to be back to my somewhat normal self today in order to be able to make the three hour drive to Wolfville, so I took the drugs and well…they worked (exciting, I know) So today I am happy to announce that I am feeling 70% better and that I will most definitely be heading to Wolfville to visit Miss Hilary Ferguson! We plan on going on a couple mini adventures and we are going to see the fabulous Wintersleep tomorrow eve!

Thanks for checking in and speak soon, kids. xo

A three bender of wintersleep madness has made me very ill. Too much joy juice and not enough sleep. Had an amazing time at all three shows though, so it has clearly been worth. I will be back to writing somewhat proper blog entries in a couple days, but for now I shall lay in bed and drinking ridiculous amounts of tea and orange juice. 

love, sicky poo miss parlee xo

‘weighty ghost’ live at SXSW

 

I have been in full wintersleep mode over the last couple of days. Lil P and I checked out their show at George’s roadhouse in Sackville and it was wicked good times! I got a tad nostalgic when the guys played ‘assembly lines’ from their debut album, brought me back to the days of shows at ‘the bank’ in Saint John and ‘elwood’s’ in Freddy. The show was followed with good chats and tequila shots with the guys. We both got a drum stick from Loel which for some reason I felt very awkward about, but I figured I need one for my mini collection. Tonight, Shannon and I are heading to Freddy to see them at the SUB cafeteria and we will be joined by the lovely couple Hools and Mercer, should be a very good time indeed. I believe this will be 36th time seeing them ( I like to go all out!) I am hoping to hear ‘search party’ ‘laser beams’ ‘a long flight’ and ‘avanlanche’ this evening, along with others of course, but it is just that I have not heard the last two in at least 2 years and ‘search party’ and ‘laser beams’ are my favs off the new album. Tomorrow, a bunch of us will be checking the guys out here in Moncton at the U de M campus bar L’Osmose. Come on down!

this makes me smile..a lot.

Just found out that one my dear acquaintances decided to up and take off to Ireland to become an au pair. I have to admit that I am a tad jealous and I really admire her courage! I have been thinking about moving over there for several years now but I just can not seem to take the leap (that and my bank account will not allow me). I have been to Europe five times now (quite excesses, I know…read: broke) and I made my way over to Ireland a couple of times. My great grandparents were Irish so I have been meaning to find out whether or not I can get a dual citizenship (wishful thinking?) Did I mention that I LOVE Irish men? I would love to wake up on any odd morning to a gent whispering sweet nothings in an Irish accent in my ear (I am so demanding). 

Yes, I do realize that all the possible stereotypes are within this tourist video. 

I got into my head that I would like to live in Cork even though I have never been, nor do I know anyone who has.
