PH: You know I don’t mind the Buzz, but calling themselves cocks…I don’t get it.
IC: Well they’re not calling themselves the Cocks are they? They’re calling themselves the Buzzcocks.
PH: (mumbles) Just couldn’t stand for it, that’s all.
Let summer concert season commence!

I love when lyrics pop into your head and you immediately have to listen to the song.
I was humming along to “These Days” by Nico this afternoon, while I was dicing up tomatoes to put into my salad. So I put on Chelsea Girl while I finished lunch, and tidied up my flat. After the record ended I of course had to listen to The Velvet Underground & Nico and before I knew it, the afternoon had passed and I was in the middle of a craft project, with the window open just enough to hear the sound of the rain outside.
I love when afternoons feel like a lazy Sunday morning.
I think I’m going to go reread Blaze now. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Best news to hear before heading off to do tours all day.
Check out the songs, and an interview with Will and Win Butler via NPR here.
I still can’t believe my team was able to guess “Top Hat” from me just yelling, “He wears this. I want to be him. Monocle.”
Yet they could not get “Cowboy Hat” from all my exhaustive clues.
Next time I will simply say, “You wear this with plaid and ride a horse.”
p.s. all trivia games are best played slightly tipsy.
I like to start every trip across the country off with a morning acupuncture appointment where they hook the needles into an electric current. Really wakes you up.
I’m going to try and start every conversation this weekend with “New socks?” just because this picture makes me smile.
Do you have plans for the 2-4 weekend? I’m headed back home, to the parentals, to celebrate 4 different birthdays. Should be fun. Alcohol and Trivial Pursuit will be involved and well, that always ends well with a competitive family, doesn’t?
I’ve been having a really shitty week. One of the reasons why things have been so quiet around here.
I’m still bummed I’m missing out on a taping of The Hour tonight, because I couldn’t leave work 45 mins early. Even though I’ve been working overtime. Such is life…I was sitting down to eat my lunch and popped onto Facebook and one of my friends status updates was this:
Why can’t I own a Canadian? Google’s top suggestion when typing “Why” into the search query (for .ca)
It’s true, because I actually went and tested it out. I don’t know why you would ever be curious to type why into Google, but hey, I found this hilarious and laughed for the first time all week, and went and tried myself, so. It reminded me of this link here; Top Five Google Easter Eggs. My favourite – Google won’t search for Chuck Norris because it knows you don’t find Chuck Norris, he finds you.
The story behind the Why can’t I own a Canadian and be found here, along with some other great Google delights.
Google UK turns up something different for the “Why” question; “Why is a raven like a writing desk.” Oh the things that amuse me while stuck at work, running on no sleep…
What’s the funniest/strangest thing Google has suggested to you?
Have you ever ridden a tandem bicycle? Did you find it difficult?
I haven’t, but have always wanted to. They were out in full force today, as Mel and I walked around the seawall in Stanley Park. My Grandmother and her partner use to ride one all the time; we have all these crazy pictures of her with her tandem bike over various parts of California. I recall riding on the back when I was really young, but I think even then the parentals must have had the sense that my coordination was off, as I was never allowed to ride it, even when I grew up.
I proposed the tandem bike ride idea to the Boy, as we bike a lot anyway, and he just laughed. Abruptly stopping once he realized I was serious.
I’ve seen you fall from a standing position…you want a ride a tandem bicycle through the busiest park in Van?
Good thing I have my own helmet.
