I came, I saw, I got pwn'd. Ah, Europe. How lovely thou art. I
know it's very lazy of me not to recount the many tales of hijinks and
lojinks I experienced on my inaugural visit to another continent, but
whatever, it's my xanga. Besides, I spent a good few hours putting up
photos on facebook complete with captions for most photos. Because some
of you are NOT on Facebook (blasphemy, I know!), I have on here links
to publicly view some photo albums. NOTE* click on the photos to read
the captions. I've put a few tall tales in there that might be of

On a side note. I have to give a big "Amen" to Mish for her recent
blog. Too bad I'm not as open or confident as you in my blogging
abilities and my feelings for that matter. I am the type to heavily
sensor what I'm saying on here because I
know who might potentially see what I write. What's the point of this
then, right? I suppose I could keep this blog solely for fluffy fun
stuff like pictures and keep my inner thoughts to myself or on paper
where no one will ever read it. I suppose I could also put any
"high-risk" entries on private. Either way, I should start blogging
again. Even if it is just the fluffy stuff. So many things--really good
and really bad things--have happened just in the last few months and
none of it has been "documented." Sure, I have pictures to remind me of
the memorable summer I've just had, but the captions and footnotes have
So, in a feeble attempt to capture Summer 2007 in the most cryptic way
possible, here are but a few "keyword searches" to my
summer of oh-seven:
- pwn, pwnd, pwnage, uber pwnage
- drunk dial
- Champs Elysee
- Gatwick/Heathrow/Charles de Gaulle
- Donnie Darko
- experiential science
- Perez, Pink, Lainey
- Jot hose
- wild mouse
- New text message!

All my bags are packed I'm ready to go...!
It was a long week and work was rough, but lots of things happened that made me smile and realize what great people I have in my life. In less than 24 hours I will be on a London-bound plane for a 2 week vacation that also includes a trip to Paris, France. It will be my first time to both cities so I'm uber stoked to get there and soak in the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and cultures that two of Europe's finest cities have to offer.

Actually, flirty doesn't begin to describe how I'm feeling, but these photos might:

The Simpsons has been a staple in my television diet for years. Never did I imagine that a little piece of Springfield would come to the Lower Mainland—in Coquitlam of all places!
Squishee! (I'll admit it, I bought the Coke-flavour )
Frozen Jasper! So classic!
Ralphie and Me. Mmm tastes like grape.
Marge and Comic Book Guy
(he's reading a comic book about The Flash)
Wanna experience a piece of pop culture history? Then head on down to the corner of Lansdowne Drive and Guilford and buy yourself a squishee and some Homer donuts before it all disappears!

I am about this|close to being a first-time car buyer. I saw an ad in yesterday's Province for a 2003 RSX from Kingway Honda. Since my Mom literally works right beside the dealership AND she knows a few people my Mom and I checked it out after work and I got to test drive it. It was a comfortable drive except that the steering felt a bit heavy, which I thought was strange. When the fellow who went with us on the test drive parked the car, he noticed the steering felt a bit heavy as well; he suspects it might be low on power steering fluid. (God, I hope that's it.) My brother suspects the same. Other than that, everything about the car was great. I just can't have tall back seat passengers =P
2003 RSX PREMIUM
Sexy black! Unsexy dust...
Profile shot. If only it had a rear-spoiler...
Tires: 5-spoke, 205/55R-16s
5-speed automatic with manual-shift
It's fully loaded—power everything, sunroof, a/c, heated leather seats, CD stereo—and I'm getting a wicked, wicked deal on a car (the benefits of having a Mom that works in the car biz and is well-respected and liked) that's in excellent condition with very low kilometres (>43K for a 2003!). The only thing that was stopping me from purchasing it today was the heavy steering. I was told it would get looked at so I'm hoping that gets done tomorrow. I do have first dibs on the car so if any interested parties come a-lookin' tomorrow, I'll be the first to know.
As for the VW I so had my heart set on...well, perhaps I'll wait a few years and save up for the Eos or whatever fancy new sport car VW conjures up.
