I’m selling my car today. It will be painful/emotional, but it’s time to go. I don’t really need it anymore since I’m living downtown, and I’d rather have the money I spend on financing and insurance in my pocket each month (mostly to afford this new downtown rent). I was Google Image searching for car icons to use in the post and this pic came up. That’s right. It’s a stretch VW Beetle Limo, 2004. Wicked.
My car served me well in the short time that I had it. Took a massive roadtrip to California a few weeks after purchasing it. Other than that, just a few trips to the Okanagan and I used it to move twice. I’ll miss my car car, I’ll have to take the ‘loser cruiser’ everywhere I go now. I don’t mind walking, I don’t mind walking in the rain. I’ve been told for roadtrips now I can just rent a car, which I’m not opposed to.
I’ve owned two cars throughout my life and I’m only 25 (yes…. ONLY! :p). I look forward to owning another someday….or maybe a magic carpet … a lil’ 3 seat’a 😉
Last night I watched a movie I’ve been meaning to see for a while now. I was channel surfing and found it starting on movie central. Good Bye, Lenin
. It was rather amusing and actually pretty informative for those who knew little about the GDR or life on the other side of The Wall.
Everyone seems to have MSN My Space blogs now. It’s cute! And there’s fancy colours and people are keeping them up to date with lovely entries. So if my friends aren’t online (although most of them are 90% of the time) I can just check out their Space and see what’s new. This is NOT a plug for MSN 🙁 aw crap, I guess it kinda is….
My sister‘s is really great because she’s rather eloquent and insightful although she does often divulge childhood tales about she and I that could be rather embarassing… but I just take it to mean she loves me. I tell her everyday… that she loves me :-p and and and also! I checked out Apay‘s this morning. She’ll be back in town for Christmas this year, can’t wait! Last time I saw her we were getting lei’d in Toronto.
In other news…Canucks are undefeated on home ice YIPPEEE! Which means when Columbus comes to town tomorrow they’ll probably totally choke.
Halloween was fun. remember when halloween used to be spelled “Hallowe’en”? Anyone? Weird…
The next “holiday” of sorts is Remembrance Day. It’s not so much a holiday holiday as a stat-holiday; we wear poppies, talk about war, remember WWI, WWII things and people and places… elementary school students will be reciting ‘In Flanders Field’.
I remember when the “new” 10 dollar bill came out with the poem printed on it. Everyone (including myself) thought it had a typo: “In Flanders Field the poppies grow between the crosses row on row”. Although on the bill it says blow. What an outrage. Turns out – “we” were all wrong and the note was right. Blow. Go figure.
Now I didn’t have any relatives fight in the “great wars” for Canada… they actually were on opposing sides, Axis and Allies, on sides fighting over the same continent. I won’t get too much into world history or politics. I just know that I would really like to pick my Oma’s brain about her time spent during those years. I have a 20 page document from her niece, which is almost precisely that. I just have to find a translator.
okay i made it. events tonight: cleaning lady scared the bejesus outta me…. and… well that’s about it. there’s really not much on tv (without cable) at this hour. lots of ads for phone chats, skin creams and vaccuums. i have been a google master. i have played Word Mojo. i’m ready to pass out. time to walk down the street to my car so i can go home to my bed. safety first.
picture yourself swimming in an ocean a million miles from nowhere and the nearest phone…
at work, watching CSI on this little white 15″ TV/VCR combo unit. It looks as though it would be at home in a 12 year old girl’s bedroom where she can watch tapes of Backstreet Boys: Behind the Music while dialing the Corey hotline.
i’m full of coffee, panini and brownie… if only water rhymed with those words i’d…well….just sound completely nuts….err i mean nutty.
while i’m sitting here (until 430am waiting for work to come in) i should mention something about my car. if anyone in the vancouver area reads this (besides Jen) i have a 2004 Acura EL for sale, details are here. 😀
i’ll be sure to post another entry later ….perhaps at 2am…
when my mind is completely gone and i’m buzzing around the office pretending to be a hummingbird like Apu during his 96 hour stint at the kwik e mart…..Karma can only be portioned out by the cosmos.
Laura never ceases to leave sugary treats on my desk. okay that sounds somewhat rude and somewhat…appetizing. nothing like sitting at work at 10 o’clock in the morning with the sweet, glossy, chewy scent of gummi-cherries, worms and bears floating around your workspace.
We’re in the middle of our “busy season” right now. meaning, no time to get coffee, go to the washroom, or breathe… really…until it’s your time to go for the day. and even then you could still be busy and rake in the overtime. Although seeing as how i’m writing this from work I can’t possible be too extremely busy at the moment – it’s refreshing.
I told laura i would put her in my blog – “i’m gonna put you on the internet!” so here :p
