Three way chats entertain

January 31, 2010

Group chat on MSN.  “Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.” is Shayne.  Tyson is Tyson and I’m oddly silent as they try to win me over for the swing vote to decide when we take BFC on the road (or plane) for a real adventure.

[23:17] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: speaking of 13-year-olds…\

[23:17] Tyson: Yeah I know you want to have sex with one

[23:17] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: your point?

[23:17] Tyson: There isn’t one. Like all my stories.

[23:18] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: wow…just figured out that that’s like half my age
[23:18] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: damn

[23:18] Tyson: half your age you’re 24

[23:18] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: yeah, half being 12

[23:18] Tyson: Divide your age by 2 and add 7

[23:18] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: fuck that

[23:19] Tyson: that’s the youngest you can go. It may still be illegal

[23:19] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: 19?
[23:19] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: bullshit
[23:19] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: 18 can vote
[23:19] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: 16 can drive

[23:19] Tyson: or morally wrong
[23:19] Tyson: But who needs morals

[23:20] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: so november it is

[23:20] Tyson: Fuck November

[23:20] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: fuck you

[23:20] Tyson: that is 10months from now

[23:20] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: wow…it can count

[23:20] Tyson: Don’t go to Monteral

[23:20] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: I’m not
[23:21] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: I’m going to Montreal
[23:21] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: try and keep up

[23:21] Tyson: I just made the retard hand to chest motion
[23:21] Tyson: I have vacation time to use up

[23:22] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.: by when?

[23:22] Tyson: before i get fired
[23:22] Tyson: So Monday


I swear it wasn’t me

Proof: he’s wearing a cross. Other than that, yeah, could be me.


Edit: link now works.


A large jacket

January 25, 2010

The scene: Emily, Kat, Rozie, Tyson & Shayne are at breakfast in Sidney.  Rozie (as usual) is trying to convince people to come to Mount Washington on any Tuesday ever.  Tyson says he’ll go as long as he can bring the dog.  But what to do with a dog while he skis?!

Kat: Just get a large jacket.

Tyson: All my jackets are large.

End scene.

If you laugh, you’re going to hell…

The story is awful…but there’s one little detail that’ll make you laugh all the way to hell.

Best. Game. Evar.

January 16, 2010

Warning: do not play on a full stomach or while drunk.

My eyes, brain, and stomach hurt.

…and that was before I discovered night mode.

Let the awesome pain begin.

Important Upcoming Events

January 12, 2010

I just did a bit of research about some things going on around town soon…time to get ready for adventures!

Victoria Film Festival: Friday, January 29th to Sunday, February 7th

ConVerge (the really cool all-over-town film scavenger hunt): Saturday, February 6th, 2pm-5pm.
Tickets are $15 and get you a USB wristband (which ends up being part of the adventure, apparently), and are available now.

Be A Tourist In Your Home Town: Wednesday, March 3rd to Sunday, March 7th
Passes are $10.50 each or 5/$42 (buy four get one free).
Interesting stuff includes:

  • Pacific Undersea Gardens (free admission)
  • NRC – Centre of the Universe (free admission)
  • Prince of Whales – 20-Minute Harbour Cruise (mornings only)
  • Adrena Line Zipline Adventure Tours – Zip for $40 – Save 45%!
  • Great Pacific Adventures – 2 for 1 Marine Adventure Tour (don’t know what this is, but it says “adventure”)
  • National Geographic Imax® Theatre – 50% off Regular Admission
  • The Bay Centre –  Exclusive discounts at the bay centre! Get serious discounts with your “be a tourist in your own home town” voucher.
  • Prince of Whales – 2 for 1 Marine Wildlife Tour
  • Rogers’ Chocolates’ Soda Shoppe – ½ price on an individual Ice Cream cone

And my favourite:

  • Hyack Air – $40 off each passenger – with discount $59 p.p.

I think this is the Victoria City Tour. I’ve really wanted to do one of these for a while, so I’m definitely in for it while it’s actually affordable. I just called them and they start taking reservations at the start of February, and the planes hold between six and ten passengers, so I think we should have BFC take to the skies for a day and get enough people (shouldn’t be hard) to fill the plane.

And finally, the greatest event of the year…

Dine Around And Stay In Town Victoria: Thursday, February 18th to Sunday, March 7th

Menus are the same as last year: $20, $30, and $40.

First stop: The Reef for plantain chips, jerk chicken, and deep fried banana with rum sauce…assuming they do it again this year.
