Happy Halloween!

Jeff and I thought we'd be in for a quiet Halloween this year, so we just went out for dinner and planned to watch a scary movie at home.

By the time we settled in, the trick-or-treaters had tapered off, but the fireworks outside had escalated to battlefield intensity. We headed out to see if we could catch a glimpse only to find an organized fireworks display in the courtyard that rivaled some municipal events I've seen. It was so elaborate I can only assume it was funded by our strata fees.

Well worth it though. The crowd around the light show reminded me of block parties my neighbourhood in Vernon used to throw with hot chocolate and sparklers for all the kids.

Sadly, I don't have pics of the big show, but I do have a recent creepy drawing to post.

40th Street Frosting Mummies

These are from a few years ago (2002, I think) but since I won't be making them again any time soon, I thought I'd post them anyway.

There's always room for Lego

Talking to people about the design and decor of my new place has made me realize two new expectations of me.

a) A 27-year old's apartment should look like a grown-up's.

b) Once you own your own home, you should care about a) and whether or not your guests think you've achieved the look tastefully.

As usual, I'm opting for c) I finally get to do some cool stuff with my space and that will still involve immaturity and eccentricity (in a good way).

So underneath the picture moulding and framed artwork, look for Lego's interpretation of Batman and Catwoman next time you visit me.

Hinge advisory for Tillicum Road

The forecast this weekend, for anyone travelling to Tillicum Road in Victoria is an 80% of housework with a 90% chance of odd jobs.

Be aware of the loose cupboard doors, hinges and handles, stray paint cans and unmounted moulding.

Visitors may find themselves subjected to paint fumes, dust bunnies and leaky taps as well as an obstacle course of half-emptied boxes.
