idle musings

I bought Harry Potter’s last adventure about an hour and a half ago. I am 130 pages in and may not make it to bed tonight. I just gotta know what happens next!

In other news, I spent the weekend in Victoria with

, SMT, and

 at Jeanine and Adam’s wedding. The wedding and reception were as I expected them to be. Jeanine looked fabulous in her dress and Adam forgot to hold his smile on his face a few times before Jeanine walked down the aisle, and his “holy shit I’m getting married!” look showed through. The four of us had quite a few giggles on Friday night in our hotel room, sharing a bottle of vodka and some laughs and secrets. Love those people. So. Much.

I checked the time as we were heading back into town and figured that people would be in recovery mode from

‘s bash last night and

 pointed out that the party had probably just ended! It was 3pm. Hope it was lots of fun, Yvonne – too bad about the weather but hopefully everyone climbed into the hot tub regardless. Pictures, please.

My buddy Simon got a black Labradoodle puppy, whom he has named Farley, and when I was about to leave my parents’ this evening (I went to beg for dinner) he drove by and stopped to show my parents the pup. He is sooo cute, and as soon as I get the battery charged on my camera I will post a picture or two.

Speaking of pictures, I am going to treat myself to a good camera, and I want to buy it this week. Does anyone have any particular brands or models that they do or do not recommend? I am leaning heavily towards Canon because I saw the gorgeous pictures that the Powershot can take while in Budapest, but I’m open to other suggestions. I don’t want to spend more than $500, tax included.

It still feels a little strange to be back in Vancouver but the reception that I have got from my friends whom I have managed to meet up with has made me realize how much I am loved by people here, and that combined with my love for my city confirms for me that I really do live in the best place on earth. I’ll still go gallivanting off every so often because I love to travel, but Vancouver is my home and I have yet to find another place that I would want to give that title to. In not so many words, I’m glad to be home.

    glad you had a fun time at the wedding. You were definitely missed here at the party. Pics will come, but when I have recovered properly. Hehehe

    I’m giving a workshop on Tuesday, but otherwise, what nights are you free to see this Mr. Harry Potter film everyone is jibber jabbering about?

      Thursday would be the only evening this week, it seems. Tonight I’m writing essays, tomorrow you’re busy, Wednesday I really should go show my face at martial arts, and Friday I am otherwise engaged. Or the weekend – I have no plans for the weekend yet, although it’s probably still full of children during weekend matinees. *shudder*

    regarding a camera, I have decided that I want to part with my recently purchased Canon Digital Rebel 300D…see review here http://www.bythom.com/300D.htm…it is classified as a Digital SLR but is fully automatic also. it is within your budget and comes with lots of extras (case, 2 memory cards, card reader)

      You were so excited about the camera … what happened?

        it’s just not getting used, although I admit that it can be contributed to laziness…I think in order to do the creative stuff I want to do with it I will have to take a course, it’s not a priority though so *shrug* I still have a Canon A410 point and shoot that does me for the basics of photography 🙂
