Jeff & Zeus

Jeff claims to hate the cats, but Zeus has developed some kind of bond with him regardless: when Jeff comes home, the cat flops down on the floor and waits for him to come pet him, or follows him around the house for at least ten minutes if he doesn't.

Liang's birthday was on May 5th; she picked me up and we drove out to Horseshoe Bay for dinner, and then went for a wander on a secret beach in Lions Bay, and had a lovely drive home at twilight.

Su at the library
Met up with Su for donuts & chats, a visit to the library, and so I could help her not be afraid to take photos with the Holga. The next day I met up with MaryAnne, whom I hadn't seen in many many moons. It was a lot like our adventures of old, though — cheap food & a drink followed by city wanderings, beach sunsets, and covert paper bag beer.


Dinner at my mom's with the family. Riley was in town from the Island, and it always takes him coming to visit to realise how much I miss him (we usually only see him 2-3 times a year). He and Jimm picked me up on the way back from the ferry in the afternoon, so we hung out for awhile just doing stuff around the house, which made me feel a little nostalgic for those after-school, before-dinner times when we were in high school.

Started reading the Lord of the Rings series for the first time since early high school; it was almost like reading them for the first time in that I'd forgotten the smaller details and wanted to do pretty much nothing except sit under the blanket with the book and some snacks.
