I'm thinking of getting a tumblr, just because I'm sick of checking all my favourite tumblr accounts individually...I want to have a dashboard. Also, the egotistical part of me thinks it would be cool to have an ask box. Anyway, something I'm mulling over...
So, I'm not sure if you heard, but last week Vancouver had a bit of a riot...here are a few funny things:
1. A cute conversation between brothers:
On the night of the riot, we were sitting up on a roof top enjoying the sunset. We saw the smoke start billowing out of downtown and immediately brought out our smart phones to check the news. My sister's boyfriend decided that he better call his younger brother who had gone downtown to watch the game - just to make sure that he was alright. My sister's boyfriend is 6'4'' (like a certain Moose) and his brother is a big guy too - so the concern was that the police/people would see his brother as a threat just because he's big, and not because of his behaviour. So, he gets on the phone, and this is the conversation I hear:
"I know, it sucks. Where are you?"
"Look man, people are burning cars. It's all over the news. The police are going in. I think you should get out of there."
"Yeah, you head to the mountains, Grizzly."
2. Roof Raccoons can riot too:
There's a cute little raccoon that likes to climb on our roof and eat bugs out of the eaves. This morning, I discovered that it had been busy while I slept:
3. This song:
I have had it stuck in my head for several days!
In other news: I've been writing a demented'verse piece for the past month or so. It's currently at 8,000 words and I WANT TO FINISHED IT! Ugh...I'm so excited to share it, but I'm still a ways off from finishing, so, here's a teaser:
“George? ...or Ron?” a voice asked from the wireless in the corner - the wireless that George had connected to the Extendable Ear display in the shop. The names were followed by an audible sigh. “Could you...I have a message for Potter, if one of you could come to the till, it would be appreciated. If you’re even listening...Harry said that-”
“Who are you talking to, Daddy?” A small voice asked.
“No one,” the adult answered in a much softer tone than he had used when addressing the Extendable Ears. “Potter has finally driven me to madness...hm? What do you think about that? Your father’s gone mad. There’s no telling what I may do. Perhaps I’ll start eating adorable little boys! Oh look, here’s one!”
Suddenly the wireless crackled with a squeal of child’s laughter, which was soon joined by a low warm chuckle as the pair moved further away from the listening device.
Anyway...I guess that's all that's up with me. I've got about 3 more weeks in Vancouver, and then I'm heading back home to Ontario until VanCon. I'm really looking forward to it! :)
