We caught the first period and part of the second when we stopped off to get some food on w4th
on our way back from the Museum of Anthropology
. John hadn’t been out to UBC
so it was a nice round trip – and a lovely day on transit
. It was his mom’s birthday this weekend so we sat down for a video chat with his parents when we got back home.
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
EDIT: so i took the smallest political test and it turns out i’m liberal – go figure. why not take a quiz about taking too many online quizzes…eh? 😉
I really think the new radio commercial for Canadian Blood Services
is cute. Iâ€™ve always wanted to donate, my dad had always for years and years. I just like the part at the end of the ad where the dude is like, weâ€™re actually quite nice and â€¦.we have cookies 😀 mm cookies.
John is still out with sinus pain/head cold type things. I stopped at Spice Alley yesterday to get nummy dinner hot spicy things – burn that right outta there – hope he gets better soon since he’s still got foreign health care but nothing valid here so it’s about 100 bucks a pop at the clinic.
Tomorrow the Canucks
play in New Jersey
. Meanwhile tonight, Messier
(one of my least fave playersâ€¦especially during his stint
here in Vancity) is getting his number retired to the rafters at MSG
There was a fire alarm going off in our building today. Everyone walked downstairs and went to Starbucks until we got the â€˜all clearâ€™. It was a pleasant 15 minute interruption to the workday — seeing as how there was no serious issue/no one was hurt. Although walking down all those flights of stairs made me a wee bit dizzy. Remind me that I donâ€™t start work until 11:00am tomorrow.
Advance voting for the election starts this weekend. The campaigns are smutting up and really getting dirty during this last stretch. I still donâ€™t know whether Iâ€™m voting for the person or the party. but also… i still havenâ€™t found out what was up with the fireworks last night – oh well.
EDIT: there was just another fire alarm. many flights of stairs + 3 inch stilettos = ugh….
it’s 7:19pm, um why are there fireworks in coal harbour? been going on for a while now, lots of them, pretty ones, i can see them out my window… anybody know why/where/how?
(the cutest most beautiful and smartest 5 year old ever – family traits, really :p) is home sick from Kindergarden today. My sis said that she was upset and crying because she wanted to go to school so badly. Poor girl – I can see that attitude changing in the years to come but for now, poor girl.
Laura lives in an older building in the westend, on the west side of Denman
. She’s been without hot water/heat/cable/electricity for 2 days now. She called me the other night while walking up 7 flights of stairs in the dark – the emergency lights weren’t even on. The issue was caused by reno crews who are there to repair water damage made by a leak LAST SUMMER. There are some people in her building that cannot walk up/down 7+ flights of stairs so they’ve been shut in without all of those ammenities for days. I keep telling her to move
, not sure why she won’t….I mean there’s always suites available in our building 😉
And while John is still drooling over the latest gadgets announced by Steve-o yesterday, there are a few more companies attempting to adapt to the iCraze. i want me some iJeans to wear with my iBoxers. And in daily sleeze – Lindsay Lohan is messed up and Angelina Jolie has a bun in the oven. Thanks Laura/Chris for these fascinating tidbits, my day is now complete :p
