I stayed home from work today. I think I have an ear infection because I woke up with a headache and my left ear keeps popping. I used the opportunity to join tumblr and take photos of myself in the yard during the 10 minutes there was sun outside.

I bought Jeff a birthday cupcake from Cupcakes, since in my travels I happened to be at the Lens & Shutter directly across the street. The front one is some kind of caramel/dulce de leche magic, and the green one is chocolate mint. Later we went to The Diamond for birthday dinner/drinks with Iain and Jesse, which was incredible, and we then moved onto beers at the Alibi Room and went home drunk in a taxi at 1:30 in the morning.
Here's the birthday boy and Jesse looking classy at The Diamond.

I went to H&M to see if I could find Jeff something for his birthday. It was super busy in there and made me anxious, and all the guys' clothes sucked. However I managed to somehow find a shirt and a necklace for me? Funny, that...
My photos have been bland and uninspired lately, much like most of my life.

Another day of hefting boxes, counting fishing lures, and trying not to rip out the new guy's tongue in order to get him to stfu for ten goddamn seconds.
This abandoned spider home was on my front stop when I sat out there after work.

Amanda and Steph came over for dinner. Jeff made delicious pizza and I made sangria, and also red velvet cupcakes for dessert. And then suddenly it was 9pm and everyone was like "oh crap I have to work tomorrow". Stupid/awesome daylight savings time.

After work I headed to Main Street to spend $133 at Red Cat and then I wandered around and poked in some boutiques I couldn't afford, and picked up a bit of produce before heading home. I saw this sign on an empty lot at King Edward. Graffiti is fun!

I almost deleted this picture for being overexposed, but then I figured I could work with it and it turned out pretty interesting. This is a lovely, tree-lined and cobbled section of Bute Street.
I took a few others I liked, you can view them here.

I had one of those nights where every time you are just about to drift off into sleep, your body jerks you awake. I think I finally passed out for real around 4am, and when I woke up I had a massive headache and was super stuffed up. I stayed home from work and Jeff made me breakfast, and I spent the afternoon mending clothes while he went for a bike ride with Ray. On his journeys he picked up some new gear cables for my bike and installed them so that maybe my chain will stop falling off when I go up hills. I guess that's what you get for riding free trash bike.

Jeff and I went for dinner at CinCin with my parents. DineOut Vancouver always makes you go to restaurants you can't really afford, thinking, 'yay I can just order from the dineout menu' and half the time you end up ordering from the regular menu anyway. Oh well.
We each chose a different dessert - this is a tiramisu with crème anglais. Jeff had the chocolate fondant, Mom had the crème brûlée, and Jimm had the rhubarb tart (which I have to say was probably my favourite, though mine was the prettiest).
