we orderd some hon’s and waited for the girls to arrive. once jen got here she showed me what i would be wearing that night and let me know what the heck we were doing. we started off at the Pole Dance Studio
on Davie – omg a GREAT time, lots of fun and a totally wicked workout. after the “lessons” i changed into my um.. bodysuit … kitty tail, bow tie, fishnets and of course – my whip.
the whip was on my wrist the entire night – here’s why… jen had a pre-made list of “bachelorette to-do items” and of course the girls added on to that… ie. walk up to 10 strangers and say “hi sexy” well they added that i have to whip them too – i then proceeded to find candidates all over town. the dude at the 25cent peep show adult shop was totally fun hehe.
okay so the rest of my items were just as embarassing and i’m really glad i had enough liquid courage in me to accomplish most of them. after the studio we went down to Celebrities – it was alright – and that’s where i completed my “get a piggyback from a stranger” list item.
Once we left there and headed to the Roxy (the journey there being part of the fun) the night really picked up. michelle lost her cell phone but when we called it the clerk at the Shell station on Burrard and Davie answered – that’s where i completed another list item and we then parted with michelle and jaclyn who had to call it a night. laura, jen and i went on to the Roxy, there was a live band, lots of people, and we made a bunch of new friends from Brazil, Switzerland, all over the USA and Spain.
got home around 3am, put my sister to bed on the couch and snuggled in next to john. showed him all the pics in the morning (including the video). it was a lot of fun – i had actually never been to any of those places before and i’m sure i’ll visit again.
we got so much accomplished today (john and i) and my quads are still totally sore from the pole dancing friday night. i have to thank the girls for such a great night, for being able to keep surprises secret and for just being so much fun – i have the best sister, and the best friends – im SO going to cry next weekend…

too tired and hungry to get into details, just have to say – it was an awesome night – thanks Jenny, Michelle, Laura and Jaclyn 🙂
okay um, things jen has told me this morning re: tonight… wear comfy yoga pants, i will have bare feet… then after that i need my boots, tights and makecup – oh sweet merciful crap! what am i getting myself into? :p it doesn’t help that i woke up yesterday with a massive migraine. the dentist seems to think it’s from ‘night grinding’ and i need to buy a 300 night guard for my teeth. my dental plan at work only covers 80% so yeah.. we’ll have to wait off for a bit. anyway, this migraine – had it over a day now. poppin’ advils and washing them down with coffee – a nice base for whatever jenny has concocted for me tonight.
one lil rant… skytain rage. now we all get walk rage (i would assume, who wouldnt) when walking down crowded robson street but what about skytrain rage? usually everyone works together, piles in during rush hour and makes it work – but every now and then you get a person with a bike during a peak time, or someone who thinks that their needs are greater than everyone elses. i.e. my stop is coming up and im closer to the door than other people – people in the back are also getting off at the next stop, i can tell because they’re panicking and pushing past me because for some reason – even though we are getting off at the SAME stop, they feel the need to push and bump past everyone to be the first out of the gate. chill out. i’m really glad i don’t have to deal with that 40 minute commute everyday anymore – i dont get quite as much walk rage in the 15 mins it takes me to get to work along the waterfront *sigh* seriously… SNOW on my WEDDING DAY?! say it ain’t so 🙁
so… tomorrow… the fun begins. it’s a big huge surprise that jen’s been able to keep secret (same with laura) and i’m, assured we’ll have lots of fun, but i’m still pretty freaked out hehe and well, excited. remind me to take my cam along, take pics, make vids etc. we haven’t really been out on the town since my birthday – which was tons of fun – this city is pretty darn fun and caters to pretty much every taste. from your 16 year olds sluttin’ around caprice, plaza and other granville clubs, to fancy hoity lounges and celeb hangouts.
hopefully the weather will stay clear (even though it’s damn cooooold!) for when our out of towners arrive next week. i still have a huge to-do list so hopefully i’ll still be able to stand come saturday morning, i dunno… blame jenny if i cant….
EDIT: It’s not supposed to snow in Vancouver!!!!! forecast for the wedding day… UGH
Matt Good is embarking on an accoustic tour
, yippee! no Vancouver/Victoria dates as of yet.
Juno nominees were announced yesterday… sometimes somewhat exciting although this year Nickelback *cough* leads the nominations *sob*. I’m not the biggest Nickelback fan. I admit, I did enjoy the days of Esher and Curb in the 90s but since then there’s not too much to get excited about (or appreciate).
Canadians were great in the 90s… although remnants of what I would call great bands are still around… in some form. Age of Electric, Limblifter, Moist, Our Lady Peace (god bless’em for firing Bob Rock), I Mother Earth (with Edwin), The Odds and of course the Matthew Good Band. i say remnant meaning, various members of those groups are still active ie. members of Age of Electric are now in other bands like the New Pornographers. etc. etc.
Anne and I must have gone to a
billion concerts a month… although I’m omitting the names of punk/ska bands(since the theme here is canadian content), that time period reminds me of Less than Jake… we were definately into different styles and you could always count on anne losing a shoe in the pit. david hawks’ modern rock circus, warped tour, edgefest, tiny lil shows, free concerts at SFU and CBC plaza, the CCC
and being a music-lovin’ teenager growing up in Vancouver… fun times.
