Hello Unknown Visitor
My name is Arisztid Lugosi and I live in Canada. I have finished my first two years of post secondary education at College (major in Psychology) and am currently going to University. Iíve just finished my fourth year. I'm finally not majoring in Psychology!!! I am now following my interests. I have completed all the required courses for my BA majoring in English. Next year I will be finishing up the last courses required for my Honours degree in Medieval Studies at the same university. I am so excited. WOO MANUSCRIPTS!
I suppose my main interest is reading. I can't get enough of it. I'm mostly a fiction person, but I do like the odd factual sort of book. Most of all I love mystery and science fiction, but I do like just about everything... except romance novels. Love of reading is good when you're a recluse like me. Plus I guess a love a reading is pretty key for being an English major.
I am also a major Trekkie. I used to not tell people so they wouldn't tease me but I've given that up. No one likes to be teased. Besides less people seem to tease you if you confidently state it. I have to admit though I really only like The Original Series and The Next Generation.
I used to be a complete Goth, but I think now I'm more of a Romantic. Still fairly gothy though.
A little about me, here on H2G2
I am the proud owner of a lovely dragon, her name is Ingebjorg. And she was a birthday present from Ivan. She's fully-vaccinated and housetrained.
Also I have been awarded an ISJ(I Surived Jellyfish) medal, which I wear proudly on my lapel. It was awarded to me by Vestie when I quite bravely prodded a jellyfish!
When I took the Sirius Cybernetics Corperation 'Genuine People Personalitator' test. It turns out that I would be a shipboard computer! To take this test yourself simply go here, and follow the link...
I am also Captain Halla Thickhand of the viking ship Lifthrasir. Please come and join us! ...However, please note, no beserkers allowed.
You can also come visit me in my room at The Hotel (HHH) you'll find me at The Guestrooms I'm in The Tower Room, although not permenantly, I'm only renting... but I'd love to have visitors!

Prominently on display is a slice of British Airways as served at two in the morning on Transatlantic flights. The base is a bit soggy.
The plaque beside the reads: "This was a gift from Trin Tragula to Arisz."
There is also annother slice of from Trin Tragula which comes from a Virgin Atlantic flight and contians a rasberry jam (or jelly) which runs through it, and it also has something that is supposed to be chocolatey on top.
More recently aquired is a small slice of an unknown kind of cheesecake that tastes rather bitter and has no identifyable flavour. All that is known about this is that it was served with other deserts under the title "Chocolate Sampler Trio" thus we may assume that it was supposed to be a chocolate , even if it tastes nothing like it.

Hello my dear friends,
Long time no post. I figured summer courses would be a breeze. How hard could it be to be just taking one course? Iím used to doing five at a time! Ö.Oh how wrong I was. Because theyíre so short everything moves extremely rapidly. Iíve finished my course on apocalyptic themes in film and it was amazing. I wish I could do it again or that it went on longer. Iím still working away on my German course. Learning another language is hard! But Iím find it rewarding. I just have to put more time into it. Then later in the summer Iím doing a course on medieval Saints and Sinners. That should be good
Yesterday was my brothers Grade 12 Graduation. I donít know what itís like wherever you are but here we make a big fuss. He had a fancy rented car for him and three of his friends and a tux. Oh he looked so cute! Ö.or maybe I should say handsome
I too got dressed up, but not to the same extent. My feet are still killing me! I wore a simple dress and high heeled shoes. I think congratulations are in order. I only tripped once! And I didnít actually fall when I tripped. Thank goodness! That would have been very painful.
I must take this opportunity to document the fact that as I was crossing the street on campus (I had my German class in the morning and my brotherís ceremony was being held in one of the University auditoriums) three men in a truck stopped whistled and honked the horn. I, being the silly person that I am, had no idea what was going on. I was walking with my friend and couldnít for the life of me figure out what the fuss was all about but she says it was because I looked good in my dress. I can be thick as a brick. So there we have it. The first and the last time that will ever happen to me.
For those of you who are interested in a fascinating but slightly odd read Iím reading ďMemoirs of My Nervous IllnessĒ by Daniel Paul Schraber. Written by a man in a mental institution in the late 1800ís early 1900ís.
In other newsÖ
I donít actually remember if I told anyone that my Mumís Mum had breast cancer. I probably did. Well she had the cancer removed months ago and everything was fine but she recently went back to be tested again and theyíve found that she has a rapidly progressing stage four cancer. Sheís going to have a double mastectomy and hopefully it hasnít moved into her lungs yet. I personally am doing fine with this but my Mum is very upset and even though she tries not to show it it makes it hard to be in the house with her. Not that Iím not sympathetic. I understand how very hard it must be. But there is just nothing that I can do and itís frustrating to not be able to make everything better. On the other hand Iím feeling a little guilty because I think I should feel more sad than I do but itís hard to feel really sad when itís not really someone you know or someone that you ever really even liked. Not that Iím not sad that she has breast cancerÖ but I feel like as sheís my grandma I should be devastated or something. I just worry that perhaps I didnít make enough of an effort in our relationship.
Still, she may get better and then perhaps there is time to make yet another stab at some kind of relationship.
Okay. I must end on a happy note. Oh! I know! Tomorrow Iím going to a magic show!! Iíve seen this act once before about two years ago. This guy is amazing. Heís done shows all over the world. Iím a very skeptical person and I watched the whole show trying my very hardest to see how the tricks could possibly have been done and I couldnít for the life of me figure it out! I donít believe in magic but heís so good that he makes it believable for that small period of time that Iím watching. Itíll be good to sit back and, at least for a little while, return to that childlike state of wonder and amazement
In conclusion I would like to say that life is good Or at least it seems so at this moment in time
Long Overdue Update
May 9, 2009
It seems practically every time I post a journal entry I say that I intend to start using hootoo more frequently again. And then it never happens. My plan this time is not to say it. Not that I believe in jinxing things you understand, but just to err on the side of caution.
There are a million things new with me. For a start I am so much happier than I have been in years and years. Iím just thoroughly enjoying life Majoring in English and Minoring in Medieval Studies has been really wonderful. I have enjoyed myself so much.
As you may or may not know this year was my fourth year and for most people doing a full course load, as I did, it would have been my last year. However due to circumstances beyond my control I still require one more class to complete my BA in English. But thats not all!<party> Now comes the exciting news! Or exciting to me anyway... I am now doing an honours degree in Medieval Studies.
Now I know some of you know this and youíre welcome to just skip to the end of the journalÖ but this is for the rest of you that I hardly ever get the chance to talk to anymore<tear>
This last semester I was doing a class that studied manuscripts. I actually got to touch them!! I already knew I was interested but this class gave us (all eight of us) the opportunity to do unique assignments and despite the fact that they were extremely difficult and I have never been so frustrated or worked so hard in my life I absolutely love it. If I thought I could make any kind of living out of it I would rush out and become a codicologist right now. And I still might. After talking to my prof about how much I enjoyed it he suggested I do an honours degree in Medieval Studies. I was terrified at the prospect but I really want to work with him and work on this topic so I just couldnít turn it down. I got approved by the chair of the department and now thats what Iím doing. Iíll still get my BA in English thoughÖ so if you were worried about my getting a completely useless degree you need worry no more!
This summer Iím taking three courses. Thereís a history in art course on themes in apocalyptic film, a beginners German course and a Medieval Studies course. The last one was a difficult decision to take but Iím glad Iím doing it.
That all seemed to be a very brief description. Details are available for the asking for anyone who was not completely bored by reading that
In other news I still have my job at the Out of School Care. Iím now working five mornings a week instead of just two. Hopefully that will give me more money. Of course it wonít be enough though so Iím working on getting another job. Fingers crossed it all pans out. If Iím lucky enough to get it the job Iím trying for is one where I will work with children to develop their reading skills. Just my type of job!!!
I also desperately want an iPhone. Iím interested in input from everyone and anyone so please let me know what you think if you have anything to say about it. It would be very expensive for me but I think it would be worth it. The only bad thing Iíve heard about it so far is that some people find the keyboard difficult to type on. Iím hoping itís just a matter of practice. Weíll see whether I actually get one or not, but fingers crossed <luck>
Iíve taken up exercise! I know its a shock. Generally speaking I hate exercise. Its boring and hard and I donít like being all hot a sweaty but Iíve found the perfect kind of exercise for me. I go swimming every morning that I have the chance.
Well I think thats about all thatís new with me. Hopefully you found it at least somewhat interesting. Iím going to stop typing now because itís making the cut on my finger hurt.
Hopefully Iíll see you all around

Well... I would say that my Mumís house concert was a success. Quite a few people turned out and they all seemed to enjoy the music. I was plagued by people asking my parents: ďIs this the daughter?Ē So I became known as ďThe Daughter.Ē I found it rather odd to have people come up to me and say that my Mum had told them so much about me. Felt rather like being at a disadvantage.... I had no idea who most of the people were
I was surprised later in the evening. My feet were hurting because Iíd been standing most of the night and as I didnít like the type of music they were playing I decided to go and lay down in my room. When I came downstairs at the intermission one lady asked me if I liked the music. I explained to her about my sore feet and my preference for other music and so she asked me what I liked. I told her Goth rock, which is true, and was quite surprised at her action... although I suppose I shouldnít be. She recoiled slightly and was quite for a few moments and then went and stood on the other side of the room! I rather expect that reaction toward Goths I suppose but I usually just think that people just need to get to know me to know that Iím not going to bite their neck or something. I donít know what they expect. So I was rather shocked to find that someone who had been friendly towards me before could change so quickly with the use of one word. A fascinating experience. I would have thought it was obvious from the way I was dressed (all in black with dark eyeliner and eye shadow). *shrug* I don't know... I think I'm a nice person....
Iíve retired to bed early The concert is still going on but I wasnít feeling very well A combination of too much cake and too much perfume I think. I canít believe the way people just lather it on!!! It drives me crazy And for some reason itís always the really smelly ones. Or perhaps they would seem fine if they were in smaller quantities. I was hugged by the few people that I knew and unfortunately they were wearing strong perfume so I spent the rest of the night smelling like it
Now itís time to change into some fresh smelling pyjamas, brush my teeth and read good book . Iíve been feeling sleepy all day ever since I laid down on my bed and my kitty cat curled up beside me. Itíll be good to finally get to bed .
At Long Last....
Jul 27, 2008
Hello all my dear friends!!!
At long last I'm here again!! Sorry Iíve been gone so long. First I was busy settling into my new job and then my computer broke.... and somewhere in between I got distracted and didnít spend much time on the computer.
My summer job is quite wonderful . Iím working at a summer camp for children and most of them are about six. Theyíre really so cute! I also really like my boss which always helps. I meant to stay on and work a few afternoons a week in the fall but itís looking like thats not going to happen now. I guess Iíll have to start saving money more seriously than I have been so far .
Today is the first day my computer is actually working and it makes me pretty excited . First my hard drive died and had to be replaced and then I had a faulty install disk so I couldnít install the operating system. Disaster!! Itís all sorted out now though and Iím happily sporting Leopard and iLife í08 . Expensive but worth it I think.
My parents have gone for a week to the other side of the country for a conference my Dad has to attend. Itís kind of cool to have the house to myself. My brother is driving me insane though . Its as if every room he goes into is hit by a tornado or some kind of horrible explosion. What on earth is he doing that makes such a mess!!?? I never really noticed it before because my parents are usually around to pick up after him but now that its just us Iím not sure what to do. I like to have everything clean and apparently he doesnít. I tried talking to him about it this morning and he apologized but was quite grouchy about it .
Well its getting on in the afternoon and Iím looking after the neighbors cat while theyíre away and I usually go over at this time. So Iím off to feed the cat, scoop out its litter box and water their plants.
Hope youíre all doing well

Well guess who needs glasses?
I went for my eye appointment yesterday and it turns out that my prescription is considerably worse than last time. I went in two years ago because I noticed things were a little blurry in the distance and she said I had a little prescription, but only in one eye and not really enough to bother getting it filled. This time though both my eyes are fuzzy , only a ľ difference between the two. Fortunately I donít have to wear them all the time. Just when trying to see the blackboard at school from far away or things like that. Itís not even bad enough that it has to be written on the back of my drivers license.
Iím going to pick my glasses Iím not sure what kind Iíll pick. Iíve been looking for advise on the internet and it seems if you have an oval face youíre supposed to go with rectangular glasses. Thatís fine by meÖ. I wanted rectangular anyway.
In other news my first day by myself at work went very well. No kids got hurt and there were few disputes. For a craft I showed them all how to make kites and then we took them outside and flew them. It was good fun.
Wish me luck finding nice looking glasses. And of course not picking something that I think looks cool but is actually hideous
