is it because i'm from surrey?

why the heck is it so hard to get listed as a “vancouver blog” on other vancouver blogrolls? my best pal laura who started a blog because i told her she should (about a month ago) is listed in more places than i am. as well as my american husband who just moved here in october – not saying their blogs aren’t worth the read, they’re really great. laura knows everything there is to know about the hottest shows (posts are peppered with her usual sassy commentary) and john offers up a perspective of an iowan living in canada/vancouver.
but what about the vancouver blogger since ’04 here? i blog about life in vancouver, growing up in surrey (now living downtown), living/travelling around north america and the canucks. dude! what’s more vancouver that that? also i’ve noticed that i’ve been removed from blogrolls *sigh* i dunno man i dunno. everyone’s tastes change as we go along, but still – i’m going pout about it. (although i may have done it to myself, i was messing with my feeds and yeah…oops)
i’m also noticing some clichés in vancouver blogs. who HASNT blogged about Hon’s? sheesh!
speaking of food, darren barefoot had a post recently about Stepho’s. john’s been on a calamari kick lately so anywhere and everywhere around the city he’ll order it for dinner. per some comments in darren’s post we decided to check out Taki’s last night. it’s on davie just 2 doors down from Stepho’s. the food was REALLY good. it had a higher quality, more refined, more flavourful – so good. the only thing that couldn’t beat Stepho’s was the price. about 4 bucks more per entree – but it’s definately worth checking out.

    Yeah, I’ve heard about Taki’s. Gus & Russ like it better than Stepho’s. Haven’t tried it but I’m a Stepho’s fan so….

    Don’t worry, Bec! You’re always the blogging Queen in my book! 🙂

    You are on my blog-roll and “Miss 604” ain’t moving from that hallowed margin!

    The quality writing content will be gleaned from the self-promotiontary, redundant drivel on many blogs (not John’s) and celebrated by future reader’s who’ll apprecatiate the record of your world and your life – and you’ve managed to keep writing through the Canucks swoon is remarkable.

    And don’t be amshamed, i am from Surrey too (shh don’t tell anyone) and even went to crappy school and rode the bus (not skytrain) into Vancouver when skipping out from class – that’s some commitment to truancy.
