Damn. I'm caught. I admit it.

I've become a slave to the evil caffeine-empire - though I don't suppose this is a surprise to anyone. ;) Starbucks, that is. On our way (running, that is, as we were late) back to the train hom from Vancouver last week, the Starbucks near Waterfront was giving out free samples of something yummy, cold and rasberry. I drank it on the run to the station, and... I was hooked. Nadia told me that it was called Tazoberry and that our Starbucks sells it too.

And... I'm hooked. Damn; Tazoberry is, in case someone doesn't know, ice, fruit-juice, and *tea*... which is probably why I've had about seven of them since last Thursday. *groan* I was already rather addicted to caffeine - now they've made it cold and fruit-juicy? *sigh* I never stood a chance.

Wrote a new song. *dances*

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
D
I'm here
A
I've always been here
Em
Since your very beginning
G
Since your eyes were opened

D
And your fear
A
Was already broken
Em
When the night started singing
G
And I started hoping

D
It had been such a long time
A
That I had been waiting
Em
For someone to come
G
And change my mind
D
Prove there are still worthy battles
A
And chances worth taking
Em
And some people
G
Still can be kind

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CHORUS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Em
Being here certainly
C
Makes someone want to be
Am G
Somewhat stronger

Em
Makes someone want to see
C
What do they think of me?
Am
Can we hold out
G
A little longer?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hold, there
Where are you going
And have your eyes been growing
While I was away?

And out there
Who's out there waiting?
Why are you baiting me?
Say what you have to say

Say there are no more dragons
And our time's been wasted
And all I hold dear is a lie

Say that you have surrendered
Before this world's been tasted
Because all your ambition's run dry

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CHORUS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Being here certainly
Makes someone want to be
Somewhat stronger

Makes someone want to see
What do they think of me?
Can we hold out
A little longer?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm here
I'm once again waiting
While you're down there hating
And biding your time

I fear
You'll be biding forever
And I think I'll never
Come back to that kind

It's what I never wanted
By that I was disgusted
I was sure such a waste was a crime

I'll forever be haunted
Because your moon has rusted
While mine will continue to shine

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CHORUS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Being here certainly
Makes someone want to be
Somewhat stronger

Makes someone want to see
What do they think of me?
Can we hold out
A little longer?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And I won't slow down, it's true
Won't even stop for you
There's too much
Up there

There's too much I have to do
So much that I can prove
If I
Just dare
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BRIDGE

[D, A, Em, G] Same rhythm as verse
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CHORUS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Being here certainly
Makes someone want to be
Somewhat stronger

Makes someone want to see
What do they think of me?
Can we hold out
A little longer?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some day
When we've come up even
And it's you that are leaving
You'll have your revenge

And you'll say
See, it's all right now
Honesty's resurrected
There's honour again...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gah. That doesn't look nearly so good in type.

I'm getting pretty good at this one. Now just to figure out how to smuggle my guitar with me to Dexcon so I can show off properly... ;)

Also went to Vancouver yesterday - wanted to see the China exhibit at Science World before I go in... yack! Less than two weeks! I'm leaving home in less than two weeks, and not going back 'til December!!! *sways a bit*

We got there horrifyingly early and took the Skytrain backward on the line to Metrotown. Where even less was open. So we waited there until some of the stores opened, because I saw something in a window I wanted to buy... *hangs head in shame* The window also got me. It's a black tank top and it has a *unicorn* on it! Don't look at me that way, youknowwhoyouare... you would've done the same thing.

Bought an unbelievably out-of-date "DOS for Dummies" book from Value Village, and snicked Nadia's Japanese-English Dictionary from her for a few days - but I had a good find! I actually found practically-new black jeans at the Village that ACTUALLY FIT ME! Unusual - I'm funny-shaped. As opposed to Nadia, who's rail-thin and can wear *anything*... But I got jeans! Nice ones! *dances further* Hmm... lots of my new stuff is black...

And... I must remember to stop going into Grand and Toy... I have absolutely no restraint. Neither does Nadia, but that really doesn't make me feel any better. I spent seven bucks in there on a pen, a pencil, and a notebook. I'm ashamed of myself. (Well... maybe not much.) It's such a *nice* pen... and it's a pretty drawing pencil, which I desperately needed, and a notebook that's even bound properly...

Yeah, yeah, I know. No restraint. :)

Crap. Crap, crap, crap. I have to START PACKING. I have to make myself start packing, because I leave in... actually, a little more than two weeks. But I still have to pack. Mum keeps yelling at me to pack - and I do have to. I need to pack all of my stuff 'til December in one duffel bag, six boxes, and still be able to tote my guitar case and computer... gah, this is going to be hard. And I have to figure out how to pack a month worth of clothing et al. in the one duffel bag - gonna be in Toronto from Dexcon 'til the 17th when Mum and Ki join me. Then it's up through Quebec ('cause Ki's grade seven class didn't *do* the Quebec trip, because their principal was a simpering, crowd-pleasing idiot... but I digress...) and down through the Maritimes to Cape Breton. Damn, I need to book Montreal and Quebec City... *kicks self*

You never realise how much stuff you actually have 'til you try and stuff it into a few boxes. Damn. I don't even know how big my dorm is gonna be... *mild panic*

I just hope my X-Men stuff gets here tomorrow... I'm getting very impatient...

...and now, this is just me rambling. And I am not ashamed.
*ramble, ramble*
Space is dumping Babylon 5! *whimper* It's not fair!
...because now I have to make Dad make me copies of the ENTIRE SHOW which he has on tape... *smirk*

Still...

There's... *gack* 125 messages in my OTL box! I know... my own fault I caved and joined the list. I know... I know. *smacks own forehead*

And... Yeah. I'm gonna go eat cheesecake. And then try and wade through at least half of what's in there before I sleep... and I *will* go to bed before the sun comes up tonight this time, really I will...
