Twilight Zone

So um, I failed to mention I'm in Vancouver right now. LOL. Well I'm not really in Vancouver but sort of. In any case, I'm not in Mexico and I haven't slept well the past 3 days so I'm not really sure if I'm really here or not here or what.

Here are some interesting things that happened today:

- I went to a veggie/fruit store and got overwhelmed with the amount of fresh fruit and veggies that were all displayed ever so nicely. They were not gushy and rotting or damaged and old. You did not have to pick through them to get the best ones. And cherries! Glorious cherries!!!! Oh how yum. I liked how the veggies didn't have oil or wax on them too. That was a bonus.

- I got this awesome bread from a bread store. It was pumpkin bread with a sugary creamy cheese topping oh lordy. LORDY.

- I went to the bank and oh my god the young lad behind the counter was so freakin nice and friendly and I was like "blink blink. blink." ..... is this a movie?

- I had a meltdown in London Drugs (drugstore with all sorts of great things). Too many things, too many things to look at. Choices choices choices. Ouch my brain hurteded. Had to go FAST.

- We walked into Safeway and this cute tall man said "hello" and smiled. I felt like a dork and was like, "Hey mom, he said hi and didn't drool and say mamacita and turn around to look at my ass! He just said HELLO!??". Wow.

- It's the coldest June here on record. Um....WTF? It's like NOVEMBER weather. Oh well, at least I don't have a sweaty crotch.


Seriously, this IS the twilight zone.

    Sweaty crotch....HAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHAAAAAAAA.

    Oh man! I´m so homesick right now I would die to just go home for one hour and be able to just go to Safeway...no family, no friends, just a trip to the grocery store, where someone bags my groceries for me and thanks me for my business.

    You always end your posts on the high note! The visual you conjure is....well, it just isn't working! Have a great time up there and keep blogging about your culture shock. It's a treat to read!

    JJ - Yes, yes and yes!

    Fned - I can bitch about a lot of things. It's just in my nature. lol. I'm good at it!

    Bluestreak - It's funny how those things weren't important to use before but now they are. And yes, sweaty crotch, in the heat it's impossible to avoid!

    Rivergirl - Yeah! Don't blame me!

    Wayne - Glad you are enjoying. I like to put a smile on your face. You're much nicer when you're smiling. ;-) lol.
