Dear tourist, your (now empty and wet) luggage is waiting for you on the Cambie Bridge.
*Welcome to Vancouver!



I like Tom Waits' brain.

Face Your Feces Phobia

Cleaning up dog shit from isle 6. Not really what I expected from a pharmacy degree.
And what's up with people and their fear of shit?? I mean, no one can handle plunging a toilet anymore- they pull the old "Dump n' Dash" whenever they screw up the staff toilet. I don't like shit any more than the next person, but deal with it, people!!! (And no, covering up your crime with MORE toilet paper doesn't count).
......Now, where'd I put that yucky wine I bought yesterday.....

****BE THANKFUL THERE IS NO ACCOMPANYING PHOTO****

Blech.

Wine Factoid:
 An awesome red wine does little to increase your chances of a great white from the same label. Case in point: 
Apothic Red-- Yummers!
Apothic White-- Sound of cat with hairball....

Now I've got 670 ml more to choke down before I can start to make it up to my taste buds again....

Conclusion: This wine blend is improved with a chaser of Jagermeister.

GIVING THE FINGER TO A GREY DAY....

POP ART WITH MILK CRATES!

What the...?

                                   

The inordinate amount of time it took me to make this small segment of video
can only be justified if I force you all to watch it! Ha!

Halloween decorations become Xmas tree ornaments on Nov.1st....



No dumping- unless you are a
stinky old mattress -then welcome home,
oh satiny, quilted delight!

Mother Nature was doing "living walls" LONG before they became a hip design feature.
**Thank you, Gastown alley!

Sometimes, in the middle of a bad day at the salt mines, I fantasize about going apeshit.....it would go like this:


Mel's vibrant outfit caused a vortex that absorbed all the color from her surroundings....
(The dreamlike effect is reminiscent of my feeble vision first thing in the morning.)
Thank you, Gastown graffiti dude! It's the look in is eyes that cracks me up! (that, and the kitten.....)


The next 2 shots represent "Interactive Art":


Art must be treated with reverence and respect. Frivolous fun WILL NOT be tolerated!


ACK! GULP! A hideous, giant baby approaches!! Run for your lives-save yourselves!!!!!

"Mattresses so comfortable you'll sleep like the dead."

Halloween displays beg to be interacted with, don't they? (A fancy mattress store I happened to pass by).

I CAN'T QUITE RECALL LAST NIGHT....

However, a CSI-style recreation utilizing  evidence found at the scene (and Kermit as my stand-in) leaves me with this scenario:


(apparently, the only crime was to my pancreas and liver..)

Nooooooooo!


Guess which group of pumpkins just found out that they were going to be gutted and forced to hold a lit candle in their mouths in 20 days?

YOUR BAGS HAVE BEEN RE-ROUTED UNEXPECTEDLY....



.....and, if they find their way back into your possession by some small miracle, may contain a few pieces less than you remember. Also, the remaining items may appear disheveled somewhat and may emit a decidedly urine-like odor.
   Welcome to Gastown, the world's 4th most stylish neighborhood.

JUST SAYIN'.....

  I'm pretty sure Mother Nature fucked up with the  "kids cry when they're tired" thing. Crying looks like it is anything but restful or restorative. It would have been much more prudent and efficient to design the child to promptly become unconscious when tired. Just like the famous fainting goats do when they become over-excited. It's a win-win : child gets rest, the rest of us don't get annoyed. 

                                         .....Just sayin'.......

Happy Thanksgiving !


Above: Bug Dept. I contacted ID'd the above as a 'Western Conifer Seedbug' and not a dreaded Asian stinkbug! (Although these can emit an unpleasant odor if disturbed- much like that drunk bum on the bus seat next to you.....)

Tom Waits - This is such a talented (and awesomely weird) man !

Tom Waits is MY KIND OF WEIRD!

The fact that it took me 4 hours to figure out how to put a video into my blog entry- and that I STILL don't know what I did on the 67th try that was any different from the first 66- speaks not only to  my stubborn, dogged determination but mostly my anemic grasp of technology despite hours of investigation.

LAST IMAGES OF SEARS DOWNTOWN










The setting: deserted Sears 5th floor...creepy. (Think Stephen King...deserted carnival grounds...out of nowhere the music starts up......)



video

 I look fetching after adding assorted body hair, headgear, and in the 2nd photo, a complete face transplant!...."Pretty.....oh so....pretty..!"



Lordy, what is she on now...?

Summer is saying goodbye in the gentlest way...

(And it looks like a 70's record album cover.)
