action packed!

this is probably the first long weekend in several years that i’ve spent ‘at home’ in the city. not that i’m complaining at all – this has been an excellent weekend. friday night we saw da vinci code (which i’m not going to get into at length), needless to say we weren’t too impressed. i found that Sophie’s character seemed too dumbed-down (among many other things). john had just finished the book that afternoon so he had many more precise criticisms than i. We got to hung out with some good friends (i can’t believe i’ve know you guys for almost 20 years!) and i drove one of their cars to the theatre from the restaurant – MAN i miss driving standard! (and a car for that matter).

saturday night we saw the (international) Noise Conspiracy. the place was totally rockin’, one of the opening bands (the fever) was really good but the lead singer freaked the bejesus outta me. the lead singer of INC rubbed our noses in the fact that a) sweden beat canada in IIHF hockey action and b) we now have a right-of-center gov’t running our country – all while belting out the tunes, jumpin around the venue and delivering some really great rock. an awesome show!

sunday we took my mom out for lunch to the Boathouse in New Westminster (at the Quay). Had some yummy seafood then went downtown and shopped around. I purchased JPod (by Douglas Coupland) and look forward to reading it whenever i find the time. I’m sure I’ll be posting about it here as i go along.

After an early afternoon of watching Pulp Fiction in our pyjamas today, we got out of the apartment to wander and get food. We just got back from dinner on west 4th and are now stuffing ourselves with cake from True Confections and wine from our trip to the Okanagan a few weeks ago (Grey Monk).

We’re now all set to watch the finale of 24 – if Laura doesn’t spoil it all for us first 😉 – and totally not looking forward to work in the morning. despite the rain and the whole staying-in-town bit, i loved the time i spent with my husband and family this weekend – i have no complaints… i actually consider myself quite lucky 🙂

    HAH! Now you know what Gus, Chris & I feel like when we’re still stuck at work and you’re telling us about stuff that’s happening on the Amazing Race!! Though, you won’t be able to do that in the new season since they’ll be aired on Sunday nights in the fall. 😛
