What a cool idea. The Manila police are slapping jaywalkers and people that walk on the road with a giant wet rag banner . They should cruise around the West End. There are some pretty bold pedestrians out there that need a good slap with a wet rag. Was especially bad when it was snowy and icy. I managed to stop for each of the losers that walked out between cars but I sorta felt like hitting them just for fun. Hey, it was icy and they were jaywalking. That'd teach em.

Life's not so bad when we're trying to schedule a Carribean cruise and a ski trip to Whistler in Craig's 2 weeks off. We're leaving for Windjammer at 11:30 Friday night...we get back at 1am on Sunday the 30th and are heading to Whistler to ski all week with friends that are visiting from San Fransisco. Not too shabby. Whether it's the Carribean sea or the hut tub in Whistler, gotta pack a bikini. Yay!
The weather today is worth mentioning. It's pouring. No. Really pouring. Is it just me or has everyone noticed that the weather is actually headline news. Doesn't happen often but between the tsunami, snow in Vegas and floods everywhere else, something's up. So it's soggy here...and a balmy 9 degrees! Crazy how it was -6 and snowing 2 days ago.
On the shopping front, when I get a new laptop, I want one of these with the shiek handbag. And a Dremmel-style nail file to plug into it.

At 10am today I became Canadian. I took the oath of citizenship and am now a card carrying canuck. It was pretty cool, the judge came out and said a few words about being Canadian, then about 80 of us said our names individually, all said the oath in French then English and we finally all had our Canadian Citizenship cards handed to us one-by-one with a handshake from the judge. He was a friendly guy...not as friendly as the judge that my mom had when she took her oath last year. Apparently that letchy guy wanted a big hug from all the women when they came up to get their cards. We're not a family of huggers so mom stepped back and stuck out her hand for him to shake. He still winked at her tho. Hillarious.
So now I can drink beer, be polite and be a hoser as a true Canadian citizen. Sweet.

Was out and about today on this glorious winter day...got the car washed cause it's supposed to be clear and cold for a few more days. I was making some xmas returns on Robson today and noticed that the sale racks had all the summer leftover clothes. The cute summer tops snapped me right out of loving the winter day. It's fun to rug up, wearing scarves and gloves for a few days, but I'd much rather wear flips flops and tank tops. When are we moving? Sweaters suck.
