The other night we walked home from the Metroblogging Meetup [mbv], which was held in Kits this time around. We tasted yummy bagel creations at Seigel’s bagels then headed over to the Taco Shack for more conversation and fish tacos.
We returned home to the West End via the Burrard Bridge, where John wanted to “pose” for the Katkam. I’ve never walked over so many bridges as I have in the past month or so. Cambie, Granville, Burrard. Never across the Lions Gate, First Narrow or anything East of Boundary though. The thought of walking over the Alex Fraser gives me chills, it’s huuuuge! And don’t get me started on the Patullo…
Today we hung out with my sis and two of her 3 kiddies over at the HR MacMillan Space Centre aka The Planetarium (for anyone who’s lived here for … longer than 6 years). The last time I was there was to see Douglas Coupland when Eleanor Rigby came out. Before that? Probably elementary school. It’s also home of the Vancouver Museum and starting point for the upcoming Haunted Trolley Tours of Vancouver.
Pics from today are up on my Flickr (taken with my camera phone, Nokia6682)
Back at home we’re watching Iowa Hawkeyes play Ohio State in ABC Saturday Night College Football action. I have to say I’d rather take a nap than watch this right now but as John puts it: “Imagine when we live in Iowa and a Canucks game comes on TV, how exciting would that be?!” Fine. I get it. But hey – when are we moving to Iowa? 😐

Geez, Rebecca, you just have to love all the “gold’ in the stands. Some time I hope we can take you to an Iowa home game complete with the traditional tail gating that goes with it. GO HAWKS!!!!
john’s screaming every couple of minutes at every play – this being the first hawks game he’s watched in a year, the guy’s excited 🙂
Iowa Hawkeyes, Are you kidding me?
I’m a big football fan and the fact that my wife is from Nebraska makes me a Cornhuskers fan by osmosis. 🙂
I wish they showed more college ball on TV up here, it’s more entertaining then watching CFL crap.
GO BIG RED!
I used to have 2 roommates from Nebraska… but I gotta be a Hawks fan (if anything)… Guess I’m a Hawkeye-in-law.
