We woke up at 9am (on my day off….on my birthday) because as John said jokingly – Looks like Mike Holmes and his crew were apparently commissioned for a demo this morning – right above our heads. I have no idea what on earth they could be doing. installing a hardwood floor? drywall? dunno who would need to hammer a dozen nails every 30 seconds for an hour at 9 o’clock Monday morning above my sleepy birthday head.
I’ve had a great birthday weekend, from Friday until today – and I swear I won’t blog any more about it hehe…but i still have 12.5 hours of birthday to enjoy – even though I REALLY wanted to check out the Museum of Anthropology today but nooo they’re closed Mondays So…now we’re getting ready to head over to White Rock to meet up with my Dad and his Mum for lunch.
Ooh! I need to remember to go to my local elections office this afternoon and make sure i’m registered. I didn’t get a card at my old surrey address and I haven’t yet received one here… so yes, it will be a productive day.
And now… I need a coffee…a birthday coffee with a candle in it.
John asked about Newfoundland (he still can’t get over the fact that they’re time zone is thirty mins ahead of EST). He brought up how we should do a cross country trip or start off in Boston, drive up to Maine then cross over the border and do a tour of the Maritimes. Could be fun eh?
We’re going to miss part of the Canucks game (vs the Flames) since Jen made reservations for bowling this evening. I’m not complaining at all – tonight we celebrate (even though my bday’s not til Monday, shh). We should have lots of fun, although i think we’re still trying to decide where to go to eat. when you live off robson/in the westend there’s never a shortage of places to go – although sometimes, with TOO much choice, decision making is difficult. At any rate, it’ll be a rainy night, with great company…and homemade margaritas (on the rocks).
Ask me how I’m feeling tomorrow morning…
I visited her in August 2004 and it seems as though we’re crossing paths once a year, which really isn’t often enough. Tomorrow night I’ll miss her at my bday shin-dig… running amok downtown (‘running amok’ is what we did best) but i know the next time we get together, hilarity will ensue…with sexy results.
In the last 10 years I’ve attended university for a semester (and a half), managed a retail store in Metrotown, managed a production team for an online broadcasting company, moved to boston, visited michelle in london, travelled all over the US, tried to take over the world, moved back, watched my sister pop out plenty o’ babies and hopefully… i’m still growing and progressing (and trying to take over the world).
The canucks were able to hang on to a 3-2 victory over the blackhawks – a game which saw 2 penalty shots come in the same period and Jarkko Ruutu being successful on one of them. His lil brother plays for Chicago and they both were stars of the game. It wasn’t half as exciting as the world cup action but a win is a win, and vancouver should be pleased with that (for now).
Reading the local vancouver blogs is a daily practice for me. I check out BeyondRobson, DarrenBarefoot and The Vancouverite (to name a few). I really just wonder why the Vancouverite keeps referring to Jenny Good as the Canucks Blogger. She posted maybe five posts about the Canucks and most of them were just gushing about Cloutier being a hottie and his lovely eyes O_o ?
Much respect for her husband, i’ve always read Matthew Good‘s blog and been a fan since i was 16. I think she/his wife is really beautiful, makes some pretty funny comments and like many, she keeps a blog about daily life – which is basically what mine is as well.
I’m just really uncertain why The Vancouverite is so obsessed with her. Perhaps they’re friends? Perhaps he’s a cousin? But when I’m reading about world events, vancouver news, shootings, bridge deaths, etc. i’m not sure how/why Jenny Good posting a photo of herself is as newsworthy… so that’s when i tune out.
Vancouver/Canucks Blogs: Vancouver Hockey Blog, Canucks Blog, Canucks OpEd, to name a few. Aside from blogs, there’s a great selection of Vancouver/Canucks Podcasts to check out, including Dave Olsen’s Canucks Outsider.
local blogs are really good reads. Whether you just want to know what’s new in the city, what happened overnight, what to do this weekend, who is who and going where, or you can just learn what people here are like. You can’t really bash someone’s blog. They’re personal expressions/opinions that people publish in hopes that others might enjoy reading them, find them entertaining, educational, humorous, conversation starters etc.
With that said… I took this gadget quiz on the BBC site and got 7 right. yippee skippee.
