We thought we could get away with a free status forever but when some of our older photos started dissapearing we realized how foolish we had been.
With the free account only your 200 most recent pics are displayed (although kept on the server), of course we would have known this if would have read the fine print (like smrt people).
So now we have all the uploading, storage and set-making power we could ask for.
There we were, the 4 of us for the first time in 13 years. We all commented that none of us had changed (except for growing boobs and hips) and we just looked like older versions of ourselves. Sitting at that table
I immediately fell back into school-clique mode and assumed my role as the nerdy geeky “Becky Martin”.
It was interesting to hear how everyone’s life is going and that everywhere we all go – we’re defending Surrey.
I must admit that even though it was fun to have a little blast from the past, I have grown SO much (and yeah, not just in the boob department). I was pretty glad to head back to our little home in the West End and back to my life that I’ve worked so hard to achieve (and am still in the process of doing).
Talking to John last night (sort of a post-mortem) we both agreed that we’re nowhere near where we want to be in life but at least we’re on a path to achieving our goals – something we both really value. We’ve both come so far – we got some help along the way but we’ve pretty much strived as individuals to get where we are and to keep going where we want to go.
We didn’t need to name-drop, we didn’t need to vocalize success or plug fancy places we’ve been or are going to. We hope that we have our own quiet sense of achievement, just knowing inside that yeah, we’re doing pretty alright.
Edit: I should add that we’re also not that strict when it comes to our goals – they’re pretty broad and we’re not that organized to have our entire lives planned out. I mean this time last year I was in Kitsilano and he was in Iowa City 😉
Rebecca joined the group of authors earlier this month. As her guest, I brought along the recording equipment to kind of document the occasion, but more so to meet more people that call Vancouver home and like to blog about it as much as we do.

At the end of it all (if you don’t know already) Andrea took the top prize. She was weepy, naive, dressed like Kimmy Gibbler and looked like Jamie Lee Curtis. BUT when you dressed her up and gave her some long hair – yeow! She’s young, she’s got the body, is eager to learn and is 20 times better for the ‘job’ than Alana (in my opinion. The reason I’m getting into this now is because of the labour dispute between America’s Next Top Model [antm] writers/producers and the show.
“A dozen writers and producers for the model search competition walked off the job Thursday and staged an hour-long protest outside the show’s Los Angeles offices…
…In the past few years, the Writers Guild has been fighting for the rights for those working on reality television programming, including supporting lawsuits by writers who claim to have been exploited…
…However, the industry overall has not come to a consensus on how work on a reality show equates to work on a traditionally scripted series.” [cbc]
Let me just pull out my trusty Motorola Razr phone and log onto Ask.com and do some research.
Laura started up a blog a few months ago after I pestered her into it. She’s got so much info floating around in that brain of hers (just general knowledge about the entertainment world, and also from all the research she does). Then two days ago, Gus (who usually gives me the HARDEST time for blogging) decides to join the dark side and activate a blogger account.
Some people ask ‘why’ you would blog.
I’m no expert by ANY means (this guy [tony] is probably the closest thing there is).
There are SO many different types of bloggers. Techy, business-y, girly, theme-y, the ones that just blog because it’s a great form of personal expression, the ones who want to inform etc. etc. etc.
On a similar note, see John’s views on ‘What Podcasting Is’ [audihertz]
Whatever the reason, if you want to do it – do it. Check out my blogroll on the sidebar for any kind of inspiration. I try to keep it short n sweet, they’re all my daily reads and they’re all pretty diverse. I go from Gus Greeper’s great cat video post [vid] to my co-worker Nik’s political cartoons [nik].
So Gus, (my co-worker/the one who just started a blog, not to be confused with Corinna’s cat) don’t be scared, take your time and to quote Rudiger Simpson “I do what I feel like”.
