Jen was advertising this yesterday – PostSecret. I just called my mom this morning to ask if she would be my valentine – she said yes, score! Thanks to my other Valentine I was able to get my first Starbucks dark roast in several weeks and boy… was it jitteringly-yummy.
When we found out one of our fave bands
is going to be playing in Vancouver in April, we both got rather excited. Then we found out they’re playing at the Pacific Colliseum
– d’oh! Stadium show?! Sucky. John said it would be okay to see, although he’d much rather go to a Canucks
game (if we’re going to be spending that kinda money for a night out). For those of you playing the home game – John, my fiance, is American. (pause). Yes that’s right. He’s acclimated well to living in Vancouver and has grown into a rabbid Canucks fan like the rest of us.
Speaking of Death Cab, Ben Gibbard’s other project, the Postal Service
is rather miffed at Apple’s Intel ads
due to it’s eerie (and almost spot on) resemblance to their video. Watch a side by side comparison here.
we went for dinner at hon’s
tonight with laura. it’s been so long since john and i went out to eat for dinner – we used to go out all the time but lately there’s just been too much hubub in our lives, we just cook at home. as per usual, i made laura laugh and snort tea out her nose, john went nuts with the rice and i devoured the potato nest and got the table all messy – cause i tend to be that way – can’t take me anywhere :p the ‘big day’ is just around the corner and …things are coming together… we went tie shopping today – john and his sister in law think he should have a solid white tie (with his white shirt and navy blue pinstripe suit), i think it should be solid blue… although we both agreed on silver today… there’s still a kagillion things left on the to-do list… and i cannot WAIT for payday..eeek! hmm i’ve been so absent-minded … i guess there’s just so much in there floating around. i lost my license (then found it), then my keys (then found them)… it’ll be a great accomplishment to actually remember how to walk to work in the morning *sigh*.
(my attempt/ impression of tween blogger pics…except i’m not flashing my naked boobs all over my blog and praising tony pierce :p)
yay olympic women’s hockey! this morning john played another Onion podcast for me – too funny! check out the latest if you haven’t already.
another work week starts tomorrow – under 2 weeks until all the festivities begin… i better get to bed – what a gorgeous weekend we had… *sigh*
I came across this site, Calls-to-Nothing.com
– featuring canadian female musicians. sorry it’s all in french so some may not be able to understand what’s going on… but i stumbled upon it via a post on hollymcnarland.org. lo and behold i follow the link, go back to the october 2005 archives and there’s a post about Holly – including a podcast
…and i think we should have stuck with Roots for our olympic duds… i just wanna dunk ’em all in my hot chocolate..mm marshmallows anyone?
