Mike, Alysia and I went to the graveyard today to make some photos. We were a little concerned that bringing balloons to the cemetery could be considered disrespectful, however, we came upon a couple of scantily clad individuals making out behind some bushes and figured we could always do a, “Don’t look over here! Look over there! Those two are nearly naked! And in the graveyard in the middle of the day!”

I found these shoes at a very cool store in Gastown today on my lunch break. I had originally gone to buy Mike a birthday present (which I did find a few doors down. YES!) and stumbled upon this store that sells sort of oldie time dresses made with fabrics that have skulls and bats on them! I think I’m going to back next week and try on a dress or two. Can you imagine? A bat wing dress? I can barely contain myself.
I am looking forward to pancakes tomorrow. I think I just may go with blueberry. Or raspberry peach. You will see them in all their glory tomorrow on the interwebs, whatever I choose.
Our nights have been consumed lately with Downton Abby. This is the best soap opera I’ve ever watched. Ever. I have to admit the first couple of episodes, I didn’t get it, but someone told us to decide after watching the first three episodes. That third one of season one? SCANDAL! I was in after that and we’ve been watching a few episodes every night since.
The costumes and the set decoration are so, so, so good. And even though sometimes it’s a bit on the corny side, the acting is really great. Maggie Smith (the grumpy old granny) is pretty much my favourite. And Sybil! And John Bates!
Must be 10 pm, Donner is READY for dinner. He hops up on the dishwasher and MEOWs and MEOWs with all his might and in all his gummy glory. I’m not sure if less teeth means an increase in volume in cat yelling. It would seem so. Sheesh.
I have started a cool photo project, but it’s for worky work, so I can’t put those photos up here. Just know that I’m taking head shots of people in the alley around the corner. There’s a fresh coat of paint on the wall in good old Pee Alley (that’s what we affectionately call the spot at work). It was the same alley where that dumpster was on fire a few months back. HEY, maybe that’s why the wall has fresh paint! I thought it maybe it was graffiti. In any event, the timing could not be better.
I DO have plans for these items:

Some summertime flowers in Holland Park from yesterday.
This is all I have for today. My brain is completely empty.
I’ll try again tomorrow.
