    yay for montreal and quebec city trip!

    my gf calls me a monkey because i havn’t got a haircut in like 2 months…

    right, so i wrote something last thurs, but i never published it, and then i just forgot >.< there’s a few things i wanted to write about but i think i’ll just keep it short. i went to eric’s new place in port moody on the weekend, it’s so nice, it’s so close to the water – rocky point or something (ioco rd/murray st), but it’s crazy too his area has like so many residence being build, and there’s a high rise too, and errbody share this mega club house

    and then will got me vista ultimate, yayer for him, my comp doesn’t crash anymore, i dont know why, but yay

    and yesterday i found super cheap tix to fly to toronto and montreal, westjet had a sale $99 each way, and then 15% off north american flight = ~$85, soooo awesome, after tax and fees it’s about $370 for round trip – which usually that’s how much one way costs, so me and racquelle are going now, end of aug, yay! now i gotta find out all the cool places to go, and cheap places to stay, probably stay in hostel so save mula, maybe we’ll meet cool people, or rude french ppl, or hot french girls

    it’s also fun to confuse jason in the morning by sending random messages to him, cause he’s a bum for not coming to tofino, AGAIN

    todays’s stats:

    • time to work: 48:33.4
    • time going home:

    • time to work: 52:03.1
    • time going home: 56:??
    • level of wind spell: 5
    • number of times my legs got pierced by dust storm: 2

    freakin super strong wind today, cause me extra 3 min of biking, and made me super tired

    my house to work is about 17km, it sounds kinda far, kinda not, and it takes avg 50 min, it’s flat in richmond, all uphill from 70th (after oak bridge) to 41st, and downhill all the way to work pretty much, to do some comparison, 17km is equal to about

    • stanley park seawall twice (8.8×2)
    • alderbridge/shell rd onto hwy 91 to 72 ave exit (16.7)
    • sfu to 152nd exit (17.2), or surrey house to langley ncix (14.9)
    • surrey house to wills (3.1) then to romos (+1.8) then to brans (+3.5) and back
    • surrey house to white rock (15.9), or to the border only when there’s ~2 hrs line up

    so bike and stop driving

    my flickr pics

    today’s stats:

    • time to work: 48:52.9
    • time going home: 53.29.9

    go get ur iphone! and get 6gig data for $30, that’s better than what they announced before, you can watch ~6200 min of youtube with 6 gig apparently! although if they had something like 50 – 100 meg for $5 i totally get that instead

    most people that visits my site probably knows i have flickr, flickr pro account is really cool, i mean i usually dont like to pay for things when free accounts are avail, but having unlimited uploads and sets, and seeing your stats is fun, i dont know, i like it, better than putting money in some mmorpg ;p

    i dont get a lot of hits or anything, and i dont really care, but there’s always random things that i find interesting. my #1 pic all time, as always, is my awesome ebi-chan calendar, although me riding my gs500f is getting lots views too, already #2 all time, with most views in the last week or 2, i have a picture of sasha cohen from stars on ice that got lots views too from all the skating fans? the one thing i dont get it, in the recently uploaded batches – manning park and canada day, the most popular pics are both pics of romo

    with the same pose almost, standing there, showing his sexyback *i think someone’s been checking you out mike, or they’re just checking out ur cargos*

    and i used one period this time

    on another note, greg just showed me this, and i think it’s totally an awesome program to do, The Scrap-It Program, if you have a car that’s 95 or older, trade it in / “scrap it” and you’ll get like $2000 worth of value like almost 2 years (21 months = $2100) of 2 zone bus pass, or 9 months plus a $1200 bike, man $1200 road bike is like, OMG AWESOME, there’s other options too, i wish i had my geo storm now
