News

Between email from my sister and a phone call with Kev (Durham UK friend), I recieved much news today.

My sister is coming to visit for her birthday, so I can start making lots of celebratory plans in her honor! I'm thinking of a Lion King trip as well. C.'s never seen it either. Perhaps a party for her on her birthday. Plus we're already invited to someone else's birthday party that weekend, so Maria can come along for Yvonne's.

Kev's news was all over the place. Eve, a recently-married friend, is pregnant, due around the time of Kev's wedding so I'm unlikely to see her there. Two friends from York are marrying each other in November, and I had no idea they were seeing each other! (No one I know from that part of my life has LJs to the best of my knowledge, so there's no point going into further details.) And someone else I knew from York died a few weeks back of an asthma attack. Meanwhile, Kev and I were plotting how to get C. his suit for Kev's wedding in April.

Kev also reminded me I need to send more random emails. I used to be such a good correspondant! Then came email... now LJ. It's all eroded my regular letters to friends. I'll endeavor to change my ways back again and write more. I love receiving paper letters. I badly owe my undergraduate roommate a letter. I owe people I know in Toronto letters.

Membership confusion

It ought to be okay. I'm definitely the one in the right. I forgot my UTARPA membership card last night, but was deeply confident in the knowledge that it was still valid. If it's still valid, they can issue one-off passes. They looked up my membership and found it expired back in May. Hmm, must've misremembered, I thought. I bought another 12 months of membership. Most people do 3 months at a time, but I can't be bothered waiting in line that often.

Anyways, just looked at the card - doesn't expire until February of next year. So now I have 2 memberships with 5 months of overlap. They'd better combine it or I shall be Very Unhappy. I also figured out where the May expiration date came from - they must've processed mine with a whole sequence of 3 month renewals and automatically put in my expiry date for 3 months after I bought it.
