Today was one of those days… freezing rain in the morning, and pissing windy rain all day.
It just dawned on me that we have just a month left of autumn – it’s been a cold yet wonderful autumn
A month more of these wonderful colourful days of autumn…
So basically I took too many pictures at Pride, 383 to be exact.
I edited them down to 174, it’s still a lot but manageable.
I can’t post them all at once, and you probably don’t want to see them all.
I culled ten from the lot, I call this set ‘hotties of the parade’.
Don’t you sometimes wish superheroes were real? Or that we could dress up in costume all the time?
I really want to be friends with this woman just so some of her fierceness rubs off on me.
Here’s another fierce shot, Grace Jones comes to mind. I imagine she has fun all day long.
Now I want gold granny panties and a bra, and orange hair.
That’s BC CTV’s Perry.
I know this picture is blurry but it’s the only one I got.
This is Candis Cayne, if you ever watched ABC’s Dirty Sexy Money you probably remember her as Carmelita.
Here’s a better picture of her, she’s very pretty.
This was my favourite Pride moment!
Christine is great and an amazing singer, you should check out her Myspace page
This young man was so sweet and nice to my mom, I hope his parents are proud of him.
And here’s Miss BC…
Summer starts on Monday, and for the first time in a long time it felt like a summer day today.
The past couple of weeks have been hard on us; summer’s taken its sweet time getting here.
Here are ten random pictures, all from around here – taken a year ago when summer came early.
I don’t have anything major planned for this weekend, yet I’m very excited that it’s here!
Actually, I do have plans, I’m just not allowing myself to do anything remotely fun until I’ve tackled that ever growing pile of laundry that’s been silently judging me for months now.
Yes, I am my very own disciplinarian, sometimes I give myself time-outs.
The laundry situation is getting a little out of hand and it’s got to be arrested.
The West End Farmers’ Market is starting tomorrow for the season, I might allow myself time in between loads to wander over.
I’m going to try another tea fast this weekend, and do yoga (I got some free passes last weekend at the EPIC show).
And hopefully, come Monday start training fervently for the half-marathon.
I’m training with intent to run, but I’m not going to register just yet – I have until the 21st.
Also possibly happening this weekend… I’m making Wacky Cake, but first I’m going to find a child so that we can be awed together!
The grown ups I live with aren’t impressed by such things.
While I’m at it, I’ll probably just scurry over to Costco, the bunker needs replenishing.
I mentioned to a work colleague that I’m might go to Costco as part of my big weekend plan, and he said;
“You’re going to Costco on the weekend? How suburban of you”
I know sometimes I come off as some hippie wild child, but I do enjoy suburban delicacies likeÂ those giant retail warehouses… where else would I find a five-gallon tub of granola?
Outfit Details: White blouse – INC (The Bay), Skirt – Marc by Marc Jacobs, Belt – The Gap, Tights – The Bay, Shoes – Clarks
This outfit didn’t turn out as I’d hoped; the blouse I initially picked to wear with the skirt didn’t quite work out.
So with only five minutes left to get to work, I chose this white blouse – which turned out ok, I guess.
See you at the Farmers’ Market, …maybe!
