This is a photo taken of Madeleine (aka. Muriel) and me (also, aka Muriel) in Vancouver shortly after we moved there a couple of years ago. She had just started law school and I was taking lessons with Mr. Stanick at the Academy. Those first few months were incredible. It was exciting to be in a new city, meet new people and do new things. Though ultimately it got very expensive I still look back on it fondly and man I miss that girl!
I especially miss those destitute sunday nights, lying on the floor listening to Elton John and commiserating over our situations. But at least I had my good girlfriend around, that's something lacking currently. There's no one to come screaming in at 4 am to tell me of her wild adventures, no one to call me "bwianne." J may just have to find her a sailor so she can move to VA too. No submariners need apply.
Vancouver is also responsible for planting the seed of American boys in my dating preferences... yeesh, still haven't gotten that out of my system and it doesn't look like I ever will!
What's with crazy people and their attraction to those of us that have less than zero interest in talking to them. "it cold 'nuf for ya?" Yes, actually it is cold enough... for everybody... in fact it's too cold. Why is this such an engaging conversation topic for people? It's Canada! I would imagine that everything that is to be said about cold has already been said... so save it for your self-conversations with yourself and leave me alone. Earphones help sometimes but unfortunately they do not deter the ultra-crazies.
Speaking of ultra-crazies there was a 7 foot tall man behind me in line at safeways yesterday that was a "close-stander." Man, that drives me. I couldn't get him to stop snuggling up next to me. Is it that you're 7 feet tall and simply can't see me, or are you just weird?
