Laura is buying me cookies. she’s on her break and just called to tell me there’s a 70% off sale at Athlete’s World
. Our office is attached to Pacific Centre
and at the north end all the stores are clearing out. so on top of all their boxing day/week sales, they’re all having lease expiry blowouts. i believe holt renfrew
will be taking over that entire side of the mall (from the food court all the way up to old navy) nuts eh? i wonder what it will be like for us office people who walk through there to get to food on our lunch break – i don’t want to have to pass through Stuffy McSnob’s to go get a panini from Cafe Supreme. (which probably won’t exist after this…)
I ended up getting a sub for lunch today, although i would have prefered a nice soup and sandwich from Suzette’s – with the big ol thick multigrain bread and alfalfa sprouts mmmm…
today is shaping up to be just as slow as last week – it’s all going to start again soon though…the 12 hour days, the weekend shifts… earnings season is coming! for now, i’ll try to enjoy this slow time and put a top coat on my nails before i leave for the day.
EDIT: Bridge of death strikes again. I’ve blogged about it before and even John (after living here for only a few months) calls it the “bridge of death”. it’s utterly insane how unsafe that bridge has been for decades.
i had 77 visitors to my site in one day about a week ago when i posted the SNL “Lazy Sunday” vid (an all-time high for this lil blogger!). I have no idea who’s reading this but it seems as though there’s people from the UK, Canada, USA, Finland, Germany and Australia ‘tuning in’ to my daily not-so- adventures. i just try to write anything that’s on my mind – work, city events, family stuff… so i hope it’s somewhat entertaining. feel free to leave a comment anytime :p
now on to the canucks who broke their 5-game losing streak and defeated nashville (and their 6-game win streak) last night at the Garage 4-3. after being trampled by the alberta teams the ‘nucks slipped from 2nd in the division to 7th but after last night (and a loss by edmonton, calgary and the avs) they’re back on top in the north west. richard park got the game winning goal – i’ve got a soft spot for that kid.
the family is still passing around the stomach flu. this morning my belly sounds like bong water – i think i’m just hungry although still feeling a bit queasy. i haven’t done much for work today – just a bunch of invoicing and catching up on filing and reports. i work for a newswire service – we put out news over the wires. that’s right. i don’t want to get into too much detail, but it’s a pretty darn good gig.
I’ve posted some Christmas pics on my flickr. I’d love to put up more of my sister’s kids since they’re so freakin cute and funny and silly and adorable but she’s kinda iffy about that… and yeah i understand her not wanting pics of her children on the internet :p in the meantime, there’s pics of john and i, me in ikea with a lampshade on my head and me posing with the “Ladies Thong” my mother brought me from london that has the lovely logo on it “mind the gap”. Thanks Ma!
i think i’m going to run down to Tim Ho and get me a bagel for my rumbly/bubbly tummy. i heard that there’s msg in Tim Ho coffee – could this be true?
Edit: I’ll add some more suggestions for New Years in another post but I just found out there’s no First Night Vancouver – although there’s on in Surrey oooh! And I’m going to try and convince John to do the polar bear swim new year’s day…shhh 😉
