so yeah i’m sick. can’t stop being mrs. sneezerpants. last night we went over to english bay for the lil ‘ceremony‘ as a part of … some special olympic week thinger. it’s been so chilly lately – except last night wasn’t too bad – even by the water. we stood next to the dude carrying the black skull n crossbones flag, 2040 being the year he says that we’ll finally pay off our olympic-sized debt. it was really interesting to hear folks walk up to him and talk about their opinions, points of view, and to hear his in return. as john commented… we were “so vancouver” last night. soy lattes in hand, at an olympic ceremony by the beach, choir of lil kids (who walked there from the Roundhouse btw) and standing next to peaceful protestors. throw in the mounties on horses and a group of people who kayaked to the event and yeah… it was a pretty okay time — the sunset being the most amazing of all.
