He said that she said that he said… Matt Good poses some questions to local Vancouver – Centre candidates. Responses: Svend Robinson, Hedy Fry, nothing yet from the others.
In a move to cut down on scams and frivolous listings, Craigslist, a popular online classifieds site, is considering charging a per-post fee for its real estate listings in San Francisco and New York City.
Last night the Canucks defeated the Penguins 4-2. Morisson had a great game and it seemed like Sid was pickin fights with everyone. They take on Buffalo on Thursday. John’s friend Don is from that part of the world, although more into football right now than anything he said – it’s nice to have a team like the penguins, anyone who comes to play in that arena goes home happy. Poor Pens. I say move em up to Winterpeg, sorry Mario.
I got suckered into buying coffee cake from ‘sbucks this morning, it sure it tasty. got to work at 6:55…things to do this afternoon so i took over the morning and will be off at 3pm for sushi with John and those things to do. Listening to Neverending White Lights right now and i think it’s making me sleepy…
also, if you’re going to walk with your umbrella tilted down in front of your face, try to *sometimes* perhaps look where you’re going so i don’t have to dodge you and run into the street or on to the mud as we play sidewalk chicken – even though you’re not even aware what’s going on at all… anyhoo, home now, i have beer, i have hockey… 3-2… check out this crazy goal by Ovechkin (of the Washington Capitals) earlier today.
we both can’t wait for the new season of Rescue Me, John got me hooked on that one. i had my first taste of 24 last night and boy is that stressful – it’s a great show but my heart rate was up for 2 straight hours. i’d never seen an episode before and was pretty impressed. another big show neither john or i have ever seen would be Lost. everyone’s talking about it – i was just never compelled to watch it but maybe it’s worth a go? although it’s the season for big network season premieres, still i must admit my fave shows are usually found on Discovery Channel and Showcase (shh ;p) and since i’ve gotten digital cable, IFC has become my new best friend.
It was a great weekend, although saturday turned into Scarlett Johansson day. We watched In Good Company on movie central then she hosted SNL (ft. Death Cab). Intermittantly there were commercials for Karla. They’ve made a movie about Karla Homolka – that disturbs me. Anyone not familiar with the Bernardo/Homolka story, take a gander – but any stories you might find/Google could be pretty graphic and disturbing…
I noticed that Matt Good had put his blog on hold for a while (briefly..this weekend…). This happens periodically… he’ll take it offline for days, weeks, months. Throughout the years I’ve read his site/blog, his book, gone to shows etc. – classic fan. It’s pretty silly when you end up getting people calling your house to threaten you and your loved ones because you write liberal, opinionated, thought provoking pieces expressing your ideals. On a side note, yesterday we walked out of our house, down the street and almost right past Jenny Good picking up after her puppies. John was like “Is that Jenny Good?” and I was like “Is that Pete?! :-O”.
so there’s quite a bit going on in the city this weekend… i admit i’ve been completely cranky and difficult for the past 48 hours – i just fed my belly and went for a mini-walk on my break with Laura and i feel a little better. the canucks are currently scoreless in the 2nd period and i’m left alone at work to listen to Death Cab and be emotional. Plans is one of those albums that takes me back to a specific time last year — so does Transatlanticism – it’s so hip to be indie-emo 😐
since i’m in such a fragile mood i don’t think i want to blog too much – then everyone will know my innermost fears, desires, quirks, secrets, pet peeves… and i’d really rather just share those over time through hundreds of posts instead of treating you all this evening in one lump sum of a post. i think i’ll waste some time reading more blogs and doing some Tickle tests…will post the EXCITING results shortly….Zzzzzz
