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 🙂
