we're still talking about hilarious duff


Just a side antidote that we're still joking about Hilary Duff- for some odd reason, I went island hopping with the girls this last week, and it was a valid conversation. And now! while facebook stalking this guys sister, I realize- even though she's a world away (think europe) Hilary duff is a conversation over there too. It made me realize that we're not that much different as a generation.

ps mortimer, let's see each other soon.

Thursday

Got a family doctor yesterday, or whatever they call it when you're legally single and out in the world.
Went in for a pap test after biking up the world's steepest sweaty hill and she prodded me, then gave me a tetanus shot and asked me to be hers!

Mikes taking a party boat to Texada this weekend for a music festival that sounds like a front for a cult. I'm supposed to be busing out to North Delta for Sal's birthday, be at least interesting since I don't know many of her friends. Fingers crossed that I'm only working five days this week but with my luck...

So I'm doing some work for the Canadian Fishing Company, which mostly involves scanning their abundance of photographs and organizing them in files. This work can be tedious but yesterday I got to go through some pics of a boat called Prodigy that burned and sank "total loss by fire." Everyone there seems to have nothing but contempt for the DFO so I'm sitting on the news that my beloved works for them/ is one of them. I'm doing this scanning for them even though I'm not their employee because eventually I will be doing some research for my real employer (Gulf of Georgia Cannery) with Canfisco's info. So far no news on that front so I'll just keep plugging away

Home you girls are well, having adventures and belly laughs or something miss youuu

I'm lacking the noodles of being embarrassed.

So the day prior to yesterday, I sat on the computer- inspired to create something for myself. I decided to create a map, a rough solid walking route. I tried to make it as simple as possible, so I basically did a big loop, taking the afternoon and ending to be 25km. It was nice, except for some funny fact.

While walking up Cook St, some lady thankfully told me that there was a rip on the butt of the jeans.

My new favourite pair of jeans are now ruined, and it made me think of an incident that happened almost 6 years ago in Yellowknife, where I was walking to work and some lady pulled over to tell me the back of my skirt was pulled up into my tights.

I'm the worst at this guys, and to boot- it didn't phase me. I'm trying to convince myself that people don't really care who they see on the street and the individual relevance I might have on the general public in reality in close to zero.

I'll keep in touch, and tell ya guys if in 6 years another similar incident happens.

dedicated to my sister's 22nd+springrolls



Woke up early today. I had this anxious feel- my recently reunited cat is on the rough rocks (probably will have to go back to the vet this week) and I was convinced I should start prepping for this family birthday lunch I was planning for Katelynn. So at 7 am, in my pjs and sipping a huge glass of morning water- I started rolling springrolls and dipping strawberries in chocolate.

It was technically vietnamese theme- but the desserts were not.

I'm pretty sure that springrolls are in my top 50 favourite foods. At least for the last couple years. The year before last- when i started learning html/css to make a mock website for kicks, I dedicated an entire page to it. I thought I was hilarious.

feeling squishy and relaxed in the sun

Hey,

I'm in victoria right now just enjoying this heat right now. I have this extravagant plan tonight to make a salad that has cooked zucchini and pickled mushrooms in it- wish us invisible luck.

I wore the earrings you bought me for my birthday, this one earrings got stuck and i had to use pliers to get it out the next day- super dramatic.

Miss you guys and maybe see you at brett's cabin adventure?

Life Round Here

Cat's been extra cuddly lately. And today she was flipping around the grass in the garden like she was high. Found some catnip in the garden so that might be the source.

Planted so far: carrots, radishes, borage, nasturtium, sun flowers and a wild flower mix, lavender and mint. Trying to keep the bees happy. Plus I like the idea of edible flowers. Got some marigold seeds but I think it might be too late to start on those. Plan for next week is to get some mustard greens and lettuce and arugula in. Kale is already going from last year I think. I think I want to get some strawb starters too. Found a strawberry flower under the rosemary plant.
Anyway my green thumb is pulsing happily. I am definitely gardening instead of studying and applying for jobs, which may bite me in the ass. I have a list of 18 jobs that I need to get applications in for and so far have applied to three.
My roommate is moving away for the summer so we're looking for a sublet. If you know someone who doesn't mind not having a dryer and loves being covered in cat hair (and having fresh garden veg!) give me a shout. For some reason it's only been couples applying, which will be cheap as for moi but maybe cramped? A couple from Ireland came by today, pretty cute, both into books and writing which is nice. Maybe we'll be best friends by the end of the summer.
Finished a sock yesterday, started the pair today so maybe this will be a first. Stay tuned.

i'm talking good problems

I came back saturday morning, after moving c-man into his apt. Third floor, and an alright view of the surroundings- I think I'm just a sucker for tall buildings. Maybe next time I'll try your recommendations- though recently i made it to finally trying discovery coffee to try their donuts and i wasn't too impressed (salted caramel had rosemary?.. I remember ages ago that you said that they had really earl grey ones.

Today we had our first marimba gig of the year- we used this cajon that carm built with her very own hands, and now I'm just slowly unravelling chocolate easter eggs (the small ones in foil) and listening to hypem.

Live it up girls.
