Sam strung-out

Ugh, the mall.

Susie and I went to Metrotown today. For those of you who aren't in Vancouver - Metrotown is a huge-ass mall. It has three floors and like five wings or something. It's ridiculous.

After wandering around for 4 hours, we learned a few things:

-Plaid is in this year (the Winchesters will be happy), unfortunately, no one knows how to cut a shirt anymore - and all plaid shirts available are an ugly style (unless you are a dude).
-No one sells rain-jackets. Yes, I live in Vancouver, and NO ONE SELLS RAIN-JACKETS! I didn't see any umbrellas either. It is ridiculous.
-Value Village is a much better place to shop than the mall. They organize things by colour and type, it has great variety, it's stock is constantly changing, and the most expensive thing there is $10.

Please remind me never to go to the mall again. My feet are killing me, and Susie and I still have to hit a ton of art gallies tonight.

I have decided that when I DO find a place that sells umbrellas, I will just buy one of those and forget about the rain-jacket idea. Man, I miss Germany sometimes - you couldn't walk a block there without tripping over a store selling umbrellas.

Lee Pace!

So, after the horror that was the mall today, Susie and I still had to hit up some art galleries (it was homework for her) - so, we decided to treat ourselves to some good food and GREAT atmosphere in Yaletown. Now, Yaletown is a VERY nice part of town. It is gorgeous, with brick buildings and fire-escapes, and it is full of good restaurants, wine bars, and good looking people.

We hopped off the bus and started walking down Hamilton street towards Capones...and I looked up to see a very gorgeous, very tall, man walking towards me...and as we walked passed each other, I believe me only thought was.

"Holy crap, it's Lee Pace!"

Once his long legs had carried him well behind us, I turned to Susie and said,

"That was the pie-maker!"
"Lee Pace?"
"From Pushing Daisies"
"From what?"
"He's even more attractive in person!"
"I have no idea who you are talking about."
"I can't believe I saw Lee Pace."

Anyway! For those of you, like Susie, who don't know who Lee Pace is, behold:

He was dressed a little more like this when I saw him:

Only he wasn't smiling, he was looking serious, but in a good mood, with a blond lady and a slightly shorter, bigger man. (I did not really pay attention to who he was with, for obvious reasons.)

And he was GORGEOUS. Seriously, no picture of him on the internet actually does him justice.

So, not the boys from SPN, but still - first night out on the town, and I run into an actor five minutes after I get off the bus.
