23 June 10

I got this awhile ago on ebay, but I basically fail at being a hipster because I have no idea if my photos are even going to turn out. I'm on my second roll and I still don't seem to have any clue what the hell I'm doing. You know the little window that shows you how many exposures you have left? Yeah, unless 9/5 is a proper number, or 2s are often upside down, I must be doing it wrong.

spiced rum & ginger ale. It's that time of year.
After work I bit the bullet and sold some books to a used bookstore up at Gilmore. The fellows working there were very nice and bought 75% of what I had to sell (apparently no one wants the shitty memoirs I had to read for that prose class back in first year), and I used my credit to pick up Douglas Coupland's Polaroids From the Dead and Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night-time, which I've been meaning to read basically since it came out.

Finally, a place to store my records that isn't an old wine box on the floor in front of my bookcase!

I like catching people actually laughing
My sweet and beautiful Jeff, laughing in the diner where we had breakfast yesterday at the start of a lovely day.
A few more photos of our adventures here.

too old for crop tops?
I went to Steph's to hang out with her and Tams, and I wore this awkward outfit. We drank some Old Milwaukee, ate bison burgers and watched two terrible movies and one good one. For the record, the 2008 version of Prom Night is bad, just bad. Not even the funny kind of bad. And Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is almost too much to handle after eating a pot brownie.

smokers die younger
I made dinner and Steph came over. She and Jesse and I watched Fantastic Mr. Fox and drank gin and tonic until we ran out of tonic.

bicycle wheel
This has been here as long as I can remember. I wonder if you can see it on Google Earth.

thrift store suitcase
I got this at the thrift store for $6.25

feigning sleep
Jeff took me on a surprise date to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. We had fun laughing at people holding onto the ropes for dear life, walking around the Ewok village, and seeing animals you don't see every day. Afterwards we went to Taylor's Crossing brew pub for some dinner and beer.
There are a few more photos from Capilano here.

photo op
I spent the afternoon wandering around Coal Harbour after my wax and a bit of shopping. It was hot out and I got a bit of a sunburn on my neck, although I tried to stay in the shade as much as possible. I saw this guy taking photos of his lady out on the dock and I thought it was very cute. Later I got slightly lost when I decided to take the first bus that came along, and ended up getting off in a weird place in North Van. When I figured out where I was I decided to go visit Jeff at work; he gave me a glass bottle of Coke and some chicken fingers :)

SInce I didn't take a picture on Thursday, you get to see this picture I took on Saturday of Tony's supercute new puppy! :D

karaoke at the Legion
Joined Iain and some folks for cheap beer and karaoke at the Legion. It disappointed me to see that the wide array of hipsters that has been present most other times I've been seemed to have been replaced by idiot bros and girls barely old enough to drink :( Also Iain was the only one of us who actually got to sing anything. However, we all got to drink $1.60 beer, so I suppose the evening was a success.

on a dumpster
I went to Steph and Lucas's and we watched The 4400, which is a show Lucas and I have been watching for like two years now. It is one of those shows where you kind of don't want to get to the end because the series was cancelled and the final episode was a cliffhanger.
This is on a dumpster outside their apartment.

cleaning upstairs windows
Jeff and I had to clean the upstairs room some before showing it to potential new roommates. Here he is on the roof, cleaning the outside of the window.

Sun > Province?
I didn't take any photos on Friday, so here is one from last Sunday's boys' night out.

Some of my neighbours have gardens I am pretty jealous of. I have to keep picking aphids off of my houseplants :(

A&N, distorted
Not sure what caused this rippling at the edge of the photo, but it's kind of neat.

wrinkled sheets
You can tell I haven't been doing much when I post a lot of photos of myself.
