Wow! I went to Vancouver today and nothing bad happened to me!
Usually I run into my ex, someone sues me for something, and/or my vehicle gets stolen or broken into.

But today I zipped in, saw my orthodontist, zipped up to Ikea, zipped over to the ferry terminal, caught an early ferry, and zipped home!

So now I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop...

6. I wasn't sure how I'd feel today
I'd been doing the opposite of eating for two days solid.

I need to be on the top of my game when I meet you.

8. Hmmm...not if you're "doing the opposite of eating"!
I'd say "you're it", no matter what.

13. Are liquor stores open on Good Friday?
Good list by the way.

I never make a list, I'm kind of random.

14. of course...that's why it's "Good Friday", and not "Shitty Dry Friday"
I'm so there... I might even get the liquor BEFORE the cat litter. I'm stoked!

15. I hope you don't have to wait until Saturday...
Wouldn't that rot your socks.

If you're getting it all in one trip, does the order really make a difference? Unless you plan on getting soused while you shop.

19. I think that's uncalled for
Do people outside of BC call Vancouver the Lower Mainland? Are you from here?

20. Sorry
reflex action from a prairie girl. I really love Vancouver. I guess it's jealousy of the warm weather raising its ugly head.

21. Last time I was there, all I got was freezing rain.
Edited on Fri Mar-25-05 07:02 AM by GOPisEvil
I did go to the IKEA though. It's nice.

Edit - I got more than the freezing rain, but that's a topic for another time.
