By the way, ozzie… I sure enjoy your weekend polls…keep ‘em coming!!!
Difference in snow levels will be such a lurching change you’ll be needing my help right away
Yeah, no kidding! The first thing I noticed as my plane touched down was …. Green grass!!! What a treat for my eyes…that up till that point were suffering from glaring snow whiteout! Three feet of snow in Saskatoon! GAWD!!! Poor RunningMan & Mrs. RunningMan…in Regina! Awwww….I feel for youz!! And believe it or not, it has been sunshiny here since I arrived! I’m sure I brought the sunshine with me!!! Hehehe!
Vancouver for possible change of scenery
For sure! Look to the west and there is the sea….look to the east and there are the awesome mountains!
Woohoo I live in Vancouver
Hey, that’s so cool! Let’s do coffee sometime! I wanna meet my new Apostate TM pals!!
Vancouver is a beautiful place…Welcome to the coast Estee
Thanks, Will! It sure is wonderful to be here! We’ll do coffee, if you wanna!
Rollerblades for the seawall
Rollerwhaaaaa??? For the seawhaaa? <faints> Lets do coffee….or shop for shoes instead...…okay honey???
We live in Burnaby right next to a station
Hey! Cool! I get off at Lougheed station. The mall is on one side of the tracks and my hi-rise condo is on the other side of the tracks. Let’s do coffee sometime!
Any room for an Apostate TM and his JW wife?
Nice pic of the Killer Whale!…..
Oh, and you and your JW wife are welcome to stay here and visit! Just be sure and let her know that I’m DISFELLOWSHIPPED and quite possibly DEMONIZED!…Mwahahahahahahahahaha!!!
When your company screws up don’t start using the new light excuse
LOL!!! Now why didn’t I think to use that excuse before??? After all, the dubs have been using that line successfully …. For HOW long???
We must do coffee
Yes, we must do coffee, RAZOR! There is a Starbucks on every corner here! <hands RAZOR a huge mug o’ steaming coffee with white foam sprinkled with cinnamon> mmmmmmm
We’re planning on moving to that area so it won’t be far for a big Canadian Apostafest. Will you consider adopting me?
Simon…maybe you don’t know….my real motive for moving to the west coast…..I heard there was gonna be an Apostabash here…didn’t wanna miss it!
Adoption? Uhhhh…sure Simon. I’ll adopt you and Angharad as my Apostate TM brother and sister.
I would like to go back someday
(((((Scully))))) You would be welcome here any day! You could stay with me…I have room for a guest! Actually you could be my lovely Apostate TM sister…then I’d have two sisters, counting Angharad, that is. You know I don’t have a fleshly TM sister!!! Only six brothers…
Is this a new job?
Yes, it is a new job…that kinda was a spin off of my old job. I used to work for a company that used this company for Public Relations work. This PR firm knew me and my work personally, through my old job…it really pays to network! When I left my old job due to layoff, my “new” boss said to keep him posted as to my whereabouts because he might have a job for me. Five months later, it happened! I love feeling gainfully employed again!!!
You need to practice your Chinese
For sure! In Saskatoon, every second person was native Indian. Here every second person is Oriental! Culture shock?
You will wonder why you stayed in the prairies for so long
You aren’t kidding, Richard! Actually, I’ve been plotting my escape from Saskatoon ever since my divorce was final seven years ago! Finally made good my escape!!! … Whew!!!
All the best to you
Thanks sooo much, Brummie…my favorite jedi-kitty….prrrrrrrrrrrrr…..
What’s it gonna be like looking at mountains all day instead of watching your dog run away for a week. I am so jealous you now have an unlimited supply of “Kokanee Gold” one of the finest beers of all time
…Watching my dog run away? You got it wrong, Beans… I threw out my hubby and coulda watched him run away.... if I was so inclined…but …why??? Here's to Kokanee Gold!!!!
My dream job! PR work in a financial institution in the downtown financial district of …. Ummm… Vancouver!!!! I love saying that! A Public Relations job in a financial institution in the downtown financial district of Vancouver…sorry!!! Just had to say it again!!! Hehehehe!!
The reality of this move is even more wonderful than I dared to anticipate!
I also have something very unusual to share with you. It turns out that my job is downtown and a block away from where my jw daughter works. I get off the skytrain and walk right past the hotel where she works! Coincidence?
I'm trying to figure out what all of this means. Do you think this is coincidence? Or does she need me that I have been placed right beside her in such an amazing way that could not have happened even if I had planned it this way??? I have not seen her yet, and I hesitate going into the hotel to see her. I do wish to honor her request to not attempt to contact her on the one hand...and on the other...hmmmm....
It just feels so weird. I feel her presence everywhere as I walk down the street. I hope I will know how to handle this situation so I don't scare her away. I thought of delivering flowers to the hotel with my name and number, just so she knows I'm in town. I just wonder what she would think if she knew I worked a block away from her.
