ghostly presences, peanuts in bed, santa claus driving a convertible red caddy with a big floofy puppy riding shotgun and a city bus being pulled over by the police. ahh victoria! there was actually quite a bit going on in the city. missed the Santa Claus parade in Vancouver but there was one down Douglas street Saturday night.
It’s so foggy in Vancouver right now (check out any of the webcams listed in the link section). It has been this way since Saturday morning. It was pretty spooky taking the Ghostly Walk through downtown amidst the fog…it was even more spooky riding the ferry. walking out onto the deck was an experience – it was so pitch black in the evening and fog was everywhere. you couldnt tell if we were sailing on the ocean or floating around on a cloud above the earth.
i think i came away with a cold – walking around for hours every day in the chilly weather might have done it, combined with all the sweets and goodies i’ve consumed over the past few days…my throat is feeling pretty gross. (Just thought I would share :p) Although nothing will stop me from attending the Canucks game tuesday. My first game of the season (so also, first game in over a year). They’re playing the Blackhawks, which could prove to be interesting…(cough) as long as they keep Auld in net (cough)…Anyhoo, Canucks are in for a great season. I say keep your eye on Park. I think I kinda like that guy.
i’ve changed things up a lil but i still think my fonts are a lil wonky. if all else fails, try to be on a Windows PC using Firefox and you will see things as they should be :p
tonight is Harry Potter night with work people, fun times. work has been so incredibly slow today so i’ve just been surfing and trying to re-instate my bloggy. laura even wrote a lil entry about how slow work is right now and compared to monday (which was probably the busiest day in half a year)…yeah…it’s like we’re in slow motion. although, we all just had a big giggle-party and gus is serenading us all just “because it’s friday”. i think he gets that new madonna single stuck in my head at least 3 times a day…
this weekend should be really fun, i can’t wait to post pics. if you’re not taking off to island destinations like i am, here’s a few things to check out around town:
9th Annual East Side Cultural Crawl
2nd Annual Santa Claus Parade
Fox Rocks Friday at the Media Club
Watch the Vancouver Canucks in action on Sunday vs Anaheim Mighty Ducks
and so much more going on in this lil city, but those are just some of the things people were talking about today around the water cooler…okay by water cooler i mean in the newsroom in general.
blogger is being mean and i’m not really appreciating it. i completely deleted a post and it’s still showing up, my sidebar is all wonky, fonts are big n small all over the place….and if you’re viewing on a mac the background gets cut off half way down the page. i am not very pleased.
Thanks to blankbooks
I did a The Classic Dames Test.
You scored 19% grit, 38% wit, 38% flair, and 11% class!
“You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.”
I’m such a freakin’ sucker for these test-thingers :p
Oh, and to complete the quote that makes up the title of this entry….Sara Crewe: “I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses. All of us. Didn’t your father ever tell you that? Didn’t he?”hehe i know it’s cheesy but my momma will say there’s nothing wrong with it!!
Edit: I j ust told Laura I wanted a Giant M&M (she mis-read and thought I said ‘Giant Man’ but that’s beside the point) so I Google Image searched ‘Giant M&M’ and came up with this… SWEET! Litereally!
i must be getting old… i slept in a little (or was it that i just took a lil extra time getting ready this morning, either way) i took the bus into work. down robson, turn onto granville and voila. as we’re turning the corner onto Granville i started thinking about all the night clubs. being in a night club after the ugly lights come on is like watching a movie and then the set/backdrop is removed and you’re not actually on the French Riviera, you’re in Studio B and there’s Bob the gaffer over there eating a donut.
Not to say clubs on granville compare to the French riviera… but I was thinking, while on the bus, which is why i started writing this, i was thinking…imagine being a club owner… you have this nice lil place, you stock it full of booze and nummy things, you want people to come over and play and then they just flood the bathroom and vomit everywhere and leave it all for you to clean up at the end of the night. gosh, i mean really. although i’m sure most club owners are more than happy to sell booze to 16 year olds and fill them with so much that they vomit everywhere…because the $$ coming in from sales is sure enough to cover the carpet cleaning expenses. but it’s just the principle of the thing eh? come here! have fun! intoxicate yourself to the point of tummy-contents-hurling, thanks for stopping by! Let me clean that all up and have this all ready for you again next week 😀
wow, club bashing….i am getting old….
