My Christmas Vacation and Training Camp in Southern California!

My Christmas vacation was a blast. I took a bus down to California – 46 and a half hours later I arrived at the Disneyland Hotel. Quite possibly the happiest place on earth. (Especially after a bus ride like that). After spending 4 days with Anna-Maria and her family I hopped on another bus and drove down the State to meet up with my swim team. Lots of practicing, lots of time on the beach, and plenty of sun all around – it was a really fun time. I was glad to get home though and now that I am home I switched into the New Media program and things are going just great.

Hotmail Sucks

I hate Hotmail. I hate it with a passion. I wish I had never signed up for their crappy, albeit free, service. I just tried to click on a link from a hotmail message to join a blog, but hotmail keeps it’s little frame on and that messed up the scripts on the page I was trying to load and in the end I am just very frustrated with hotmail. I’m pretty happy that I now have my own domain and my own new email address, jeff@milnerdesign.com so I can finally say goodbye to hotmail once and for all.

Secret Visit to My Brother and his Wife’s Place

Mom and Dad came and visited me today. We went for lunch at Pizza Hut. They just left a few minutes ago and are heading back to Medicine Hat. Tonight I am going to Calgary but I haven’t told Gary and Tracie I am coming to visit yet. Mom thinks I should pack before I call them. I think maybe I should just show up – as a kind of happy surprise. Anyway I am swimming tomorrow so I should get packed and get going. Instead I will procrastinate and end up driving in the dark.

Swim Team Christmas Party

Yesterday was the Swim Team Christmas Party. We had a pot luck which was pretty tasty… well actually there were a few pasta dishes that weren’t all that tasty, but there was enough really good food that I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Afterwards we had a “chinese” gift exchange. I thought I was going to get a really good present because I drew a high number and would have the choice of a lot of the different presents if I wanted to steal one from someone else, but instead I decided to unwrap a present from the middle. A tradition has developed over the years at these Swim Team Christmas parties. It involves regiving the same crappy / scary doll each year. I was lucky enough to pick the doll present and now I’m expected to save it at my house for a whole year so that I can screw someone else over next year so they can be in charge of it for a whole year… lucky them. Merry Christmas.

Fridge Update and Jeff Milner Movie Review – Southpark

Actually I posted the wrong fridge, but it’s fixed now. Anyway I decided that I’d better not get the fridge after all. The one that I was going to get is only $688.00. I’ll just have to make due with the small one that I have now.

I watched the South Park Movie today. To be honest I was quite disappointed. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but it just felt like a let down. I suppose there were some really funny parts, but overall I’d have to say thumbs down.

Anna is making elf ears and an elf nose for her makeup class tomorrow. She is making them out of latex paint and they look really cool. It seems to be a lot like the way the professionals must do it. Anyway that’s about all I have to say for today.

PRAIRIE WINTER INTERNATIONAL 2

Riding on a bus for 13 hours sucks. However, the results are in and I did very well at the Swim Meet in Winnipeg. I have a new best time in 50 free (25.58) and that time qualifies me for the Canada West Meet this February. I lent my parking pass to Anna while I was gone and although I just knew this would happen I forgot to put it back in my car on Tuesday and sure enough I got a parking ticket. I am going to appeal it at the security office after my multimedia class today.

In other news, I finally decided to get my own domain. Let the “master of my own domain” jokes begin! It’s not up yet, but it should only be a day or two until my new domain is fully functional!

I bought a fridge the other day from Sears. I came home and double checked the amount of room I have and it looks like I’ll either have to cancel the fridge, or remove cupboards. I’m still undecided. I think I have until the 20th to decide.
