I think we’re also going to sign up for the Sun Run this year. I used to do it in high school with my running club. We’d show up to school at 6am and take off on a 10km run. We’d do the Sun Run, Run for Light and various others around vancouver. Although one year for the Run for Light the weatherman from UTV (now Global) told us to leave our backpacks under the warmup stage area. We did, and when we got back my bag was gone. I had my school books, wallet, clothes and michelle’s Forrest Gump piano book in there. That guy is still doing weather on Global and man… I still don’t trust him…
I need to go for a nice long walk with John. we still walk but it’s more for transportational purposes ie. getting to food or voting or work etc. we used to talk long walks in parks and around vancouver – for the fun of it. i think we’ve just been too busy lately. i wish i could run with him in the mornings around stanley park – especailly those mornings when you wake up and the mountains are covered in snow, the north shore is decorated an orange glow from the sunrise and the water is clear and emerald coloured. i like the rain, it keeps things green, lush, fresh and growing. but there’s nothing like a clear vancouver morning when someone who’s lived here their entire life — or someone whose only been here for a few months — can realize that this really is the best city in the world.
it looks as though i could just sit here and blog about something after all….
The canucks play the red wings in about an hour and i’m here til 6 o’clock tonight. meh.
I realize the new government is a reaction to the Gomery Inquiry and corruption in the Liberal house over the last dozen years and that canadian thought it was time for a change — not a drastic enough one to just vote “anyone but liberal”, they still voted with a conscience – this is reflected in the fact that it is a minority government. BC’ers were not swayed and Alberta (aka Texas Jr.) was swept by Tories. John is still scared of Harper — as am I — just stay the course.
