I think today we’re going to go biking. This will be my first time out riding since the wipeout. It should be interesting… I am definitely looking forward to it. However, I don’t think it’s quite time for me to switch out my user icon yet. We’ll see how it goes…
We went out and wandered around some of the Canada Day Festivities. A mite boring, but we still had fun. The most fun was had watching them load potatoes onto the Celebrity Cruise ship. Also, we went to Chinatown where we saw dried lizards spread-eagle and stuck to sticks with their heads still attached. I wanted to take a picture, but was too disturbed.
On the way back home we stopped at the drug store, where I got some hair dye and we tried to get a liquid soap refill bottle. Adam picked up the large (2L, maybe?) bottle and for some unknown reason started swinging it back and forth at arm’s length, back and forth, back and forth… and then he let go. We don’t really know why. Maybe it slipped. At any rate, the bottle hit the floor and smashed open, and soap pretty much spanned the width of the aisle. I couldn’t stop giggling, so when he went to tell them that he had “dropped” a bottle of soap, I went to the next aisle over and pretended to look at cards, giggling madly.
He was too embarassed to got get another bottle, so we just bought my dye and headed for home. I still couldn’t stop giggling.
Tonight I think we’re going out to West Vancouver to watch some fireworks at Ambleside or Dundarave.
Played minesweeper until my wrist hurt. Now I think I should get out of the house before I go stir crazy. There are things happening in various parts of the city today, must try to check them out. I just can’t sit here. Wish I could just drive and drive and drive and get away from the city and people and everything.
I think wedding stuff is seriously overwhelming me. And I’m feeling a bit like it’s not about me at all anymore, even though everyone keeps telling me that it’s all about me. There’s so much more to it that I’ve never been involved in, family politics and that sort of thing that I just don’t get. Anyone I didn’t want at my wedding, I chose not to invite, questions about it from other people be damned. Again, it shows that in some ways I’m a lot like my mother.
I just can’t wait for everything to be over with.
