talking to actual canadians

aargh! finish in five! the net cafe is up the back of a games arcade so it sounds like a small civil war is taking place behind me.

Special Assigned Friend (hereafter saf - complaints see management) and i went for a long walk round the edges of stanley park, making fun of americans, looking fruitlessly for raccoons, admiring amazing views and playing on swings. it is this beautiful green wilderness just out of the city.

then she showed me her little apartment shared with her maternal figure (off making a killing at mahjong) which made me a bit homesick, it being a HOME and all, and made nice noodles and watched satirical american television, which was all rather lovely.

found out i have to make a ten minute mock lesson for 'learning how to be a TA' session on friday, which i'm a bit pissed off about.

moving up the mountain tomorrow and will get to see uni and buy all my books and get a library card and access to swimming pool and so forth.

finished bleak house. i so guessed right.

lubs to all

tine said...

oh no! i missed you! that's the other thing that sucks about blogspot - no automatic reply via email when someone comments!

she's 12 yrs older? wow. who knew??!
