‘Twas the Month Before Christmas (BFC Guest Post by Emily)

November 26, 2010

‘Twas one month before Christmas and all through the night
Emily’s snowman said “something’s not right!”
The patio chairs were beginning to drip,
The concrete was slippery and someone could slip.

The humans were nestled all snug in the house
But he had no friends, not even a mouse!
The barbeque’s covered, the bike’s in the shed,
He couldn’t find his bucket – it wasn’t on his head!

The snowman was lonely and said with misery
“I wish for a friend to come and save me”
And what to his wondering eyes did appear
But a man on a bicycle; his smile filled with cheer.

He was dressed in all rainbows – not at all plain,
And he knew in an instant that this must be Shayne!
A bucket of joy he had flung on his back
and he looked just like Santa with a lot less fat.

“A bottle of wine? Do you think I’m an elf?”
Said the snowman to Shayne, in spite of himself.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
The snowman was left with a bottle instead.

“Hester Creek wine? What am I to do with this?
My arms melted off with nary a hiss!
What am I to do when the snow fin’lly melts?
It’s not like I’m Tyson with a beardy pelt!”

“Snowmen get cold in the winter you know
Especially when warmer winds begin to blow.
At least I have this back – my trusty red pail
As the weather gets warmer and I become frail.”

“Oh, Shayne you have saved me, a lowly snowman
Even if you are just a banana-loving human.”
As Shayne left on his bicycle the rear wheel flashed
But the snowman was thankful ’cause he soon would be trashed.”

I FUCKING LOVE SNOW

November 25, 2010

So…after getting home from work at 6am, I attempted to make attachments for my shoes so that I’d be able to walk around leaving dinosaur-shaped footprints in the snow while it was still early enough that sidewalks would still be perfectly covered. I failed. I tried a few materials, but nothing worked. Instead, I decided to roam around for the morning and play in the wonderful snow before it melts this afternoon.

After roaming for a while, I decided to go to the top of the Yates St. parkade and take some snowy city photos. The roof was completely covered, of course, and looked like it hadn’t been touched since the snow started the other day.

Did you know that their security doesn’t patrol the roof if it’s not in use (ie. covered in snow)?

Yeah, that’s right…you can see it FROM THE STREET (and a block away)!

I’m thinking I don’t really need to sign off with my name here…just a guess…

Since Shayne won’t put up Saltspring photos until July here is a behind the scenes shots of one of the photos he took. Also I was hoping he’d fall in the ocean.

Banana Bread?

November 24, 2010


Maybe I’ll finally be able to get Shayne to have a beer with me even if it is Banana Bread Beer.  He should probably hold on to Emily’s  bucket a little longer.

It’s the most…consumer-driven time…of the year

November 23, 2010

Time for the joy/madness that is end-of-year shopping! (No, I’m not trying to be PC by avoiding “Christmas”, I just want to include US Thanksgiving in the mix)

Black Friday (November 26) is just around the corner, which officially kicks off Deal Season. Considering this is the one time of year I can actually afford stuff, I hunt for deals like a stay-at-home-mom clipping coupons for 25 cents off store brand soup.

I’ll be spending the next month trolling the internet to fill my yearly needs (and wants) list. Why I bring this up is because if YOU want me to keep an eye out for any stupidly-low prices on certain things, let me know. I’m going to be looking around anyways, might as well hitch a ride to my deal hunting!

So if there’s anything you want deal-sighting-reports on, let me know SPECIFICALLY what you want, for example “8gb class 10 SD card” and I’ll pass on anything notable I find from Black Friday, pre-Christmas, and Boxing Day/Week sales.

How do I un-gay-ly ask this?

November 23, 2010

Anyone want to go to the Goo Goo Dolls show with me?

They’re playing at the Commodore on Wednesday, March 2nd, and Steven Page is opening up.

That’s why I want to go…Steven Page. Nothing wrong with that. Nope, I’m male, therefore the Goo Goo Dolls suck.

Fine. I really wanna see the Goo Goo Dolls. Shut up. You know every word to the entire “A Boy Named Goo” album, too…don’t lie.

So yeah, anyone wanna go? My parents run a hotel on the mainland (aka “their house”), so I’m sure I can get a good rate for your accommodations. Tickets go on sale Friday (Nov. 26) at 10am, so let me know in the next few days.

Font Fight!

November 17, 2010

Good news: I finally convinced my mom to stop using Comic Sans.
Bad news: she’s switched to a script font instead.

*sigh*

Baby steps, I guess.

She sent me an email with the new script font, so, of course, I replied…not to the email content, but…well…as you’d expect me to reply, really.

I snark because I care.

Hi mom!
