Imaginary Island

One time I received a ginormous grant to document an undiscovered island. Only I couldn't find one (admittedly I didn't look very hard), so for around 6 years every vacation until the money ran out I did find lots of real islands, and I inventoried their beer, hammocks, bikini varieties and tropical fruit.

Moving hell

My confession is I turn into a crazy person when I'm moving. I wish I was rich. I'd pay someone to do everything.

Seriously love working from home

They are going to have to pay me shitloads to go back to that traffic. Goodbye Vancouver if they force it upon me. Not worth it. Remote work thank you! I will travel and work.

Garibaldi is a mess

So many hikers... and now they bring drones with them. Ugh. You can't even get away into nature anymore without a stupid robot flying through the sky. I hate people who fly drones in provincial parks. They're terrible.

It’s rare to see it

But I don’t see vancouverites wearing goretex and jeans anymore. This city is dead to me. Yup central.

I would love to be

Part of a wild wolf pack... just howling, hunting, sleeping with my friends. Oh my god. And we'd eat mushrooms :)

Fleshlight

I bought one sometime in late winter and I used it every day for a month or so. I have not used it since because it's a pain in the ass to clean and dry out each time. I think I wasted my money on this thing.

Friends always go out

Even during Covid, my friends go out and do stuff. I sent them one picture of me at a bar after I went out like one night during the whole pandemic, and now they want me to wear a mask or not hang out. Mostly I am just social distancing, going to the gym, or visiting the rents. They're out smoking cigarettes and drinking though while socializing.

Just don't understand it

Our economy just seems to keep on growing even if recessions and pandemics keep on hitting us. I am not complaining, but... I do wonder how this is possible. I suppose we are fortunate, even though the benefits are unevenly distributed.

I SAW YOU

Elevator Ride with pretty Australian

We shared the elevator, socially distanced and masked, the other day. A very brief conversation...
