downtown


was feeling a bit city-deprived so i had an excursion downtown today. it was a bit of a failed excursion, really. out of my shopping list i managed to get a lightbulb and some handcream. meh. also it was raining. everytime i went inside for coffee or whatever it took me ten minutes to get all my warm layers off. bumped into m+j, though, and had hot chocolate and a ridiciously rich crepe, which improved things. and i took another small step towards fitting in vancouver. presents coffee mug with first nations' symbol:

good, no? it's a frog.

also found some very good coats round the $200 mark. and the bay has christmas windows! (if you look closely you can see 'SEARS' backwards in the reflection)


now to stop whining and start doing some work. or something.

more or less. it's more crowded a bit further down robson, but i didn't want to film in a crowd. 'hi, i'm an enormous creep!'
