When I go for walks there’s always a destination because without one I would be walking aimlessly and I don’t like that lost feeling. My destination isn’t ever that purposeful but it’s something. Being that summer is over, I gathered my positive energy which is stored somewhere in the deep dark trenches of my body to seize the sunny warm day. I walked a bit further this time to the core of the city where people are out and about eating trendy food and shopping not at stores but at boutiques.
I like walking along bridges because of the view.
I think the message is if you’re going to eat here, we don’t want you to feel guilty. Poutine is probably one of the unhealthiest foods out there. There’s not much to brag about when it comes to Canadian food culture. We have poutine and Canadian back bacon which is basically ham. For those of you who don’t know what poutine is it’s french fries covered with cheese curds and gravy. Of course that’s the basic poutine. From there you can add everything under the sun to your poutine as long as it’s not healthy.
On the way back I walked on the other side of the bridge where you can see another bridge. That’s our shitty version of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia. This is why people come to Vancouver, for the parks, water and mountains. That area you see with people is a popular tourist destination called Granville Island. I would go into why people go there but it’s really not that interesting. There was a time when I had a small ambition to create a blog about Vancouver. I’m sure I would have done the city more harm than good.
Paul’s Place Omelettery. What a fancy name for a breakfast place. Sorry did I say breakfast. How dare I. I meant brunch. It actually wasn’t expensive though which is the reason why I decided to try it. It’s a nice place so I probably won’t be going back.
The place was pretty quiet so I could hear this white woman ramble on about her life drama to some dude. She was talking about how very few friends she has and her ex-husband while the guy was trying to convince her that she’s not a bad person. I think drama is the key to an unboring life. When you don’t have any drama in your life though, hearing about other people’s extensive drama can be as annoying as being sober at a bar.
I’m not sure how effective protesting is. The message that they wanted to get out was that our Prime Minister is evil and needs to be gone. I don’t think there needs to be any awareness for this. I’ve never heard anyone say good things about the government in power. I think all they achieved was backing traffic up and using tax payer dollars for the police escort. This was yesterday. Today is a nice day too but I’m going to seize the day by taking a nap. My positive energy battery needs recharging.
