So like, false creek isn't a real creek, you know...

Someone actually said that to me once. And I was all, "Uh, YEAH." I don't remember who it was, but I still think it's pretty funny. Despite being based on a web of lies, it is a very nice place. If you have some time, I highly suggest walking along the path by the water on the Granville Island side. It's terribly romantic. So you can see why I like it so much... because I go there... alone... *sigh*

See? That shit was made for romantic walks... with your pretend husband. DO NOT JUDGE ME RIGHT NOW.

Remember when you used to get to sleep until 10am? All the time? Remember that? I do too. I miss it dearly.

This morning when I woke up I was wayyyyyy tired. It is totally my fault though. I did not get home from the super awesomest girls night EVER until about midnight. To clarify, midnight is kind of a foreign concept to me... because I never see it. 11:00 is totally pushing it for this girl. But it was way fun, so I didn't mind.

I watched the fireworks from Vanier and it was pretty cool. They played Queen and Dean Martin, which excited me greatly. There was one moment in particular that caused me to utter what is perhaps the funniest thing ever. (Note: The following conversation was entirely about fireworks, and nothing else.)

Amanda: "Whoa, those things are huge!"
Me: "I know. It looks like they are coming right at your face!"
Amanda: "That's crazy."
Me: "Totally. You know what it reminds me of? You know that movie at Disneyland with Michael Jackson? The 3D one?"
Amanda: "Dude! Captain EO?"
Me: "Yeah! Captain EO! That movie is insane! It's like the fireworks because you are sitting there watching it and it looks like Michael Jackson is coming right at your face."
Amanda: "Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh..."
Me: "I'm sorry! I'm so sorry! That was awesome."
*continuous laughter*

I love it when I say inappropriate things.

Michael Jackson coming right at your face is a preposterous notion.
He wouldn't like you or Amanda in that way...or any grown up for that matter.
Although, dare I say that is just hearsay. Let me ask you this though, why would he have moved to Dubai or some crazy place like that? I mean, that can be construed a an admission of guilt! And probably should can't tell me that lily-white-skinned man enjoys the weather...but I digress...
It LIKELY would not happen...although it is really a "more than likely would not" scenario.

*your name said in the the loudest, most annoying whiny voice I could possibly muster*

That is exactly why it is so funny... because it is REDICULOUS and incredibly disturbing.

Hey... it's kinda like you!

Just kidding. You're cool...ish.

Don't be suggesting nobody go to False Creek on the GI side, I am sick and tired of having love sick clowns peeking in my windows well I walk around in my meat shirt.

Good lord, I think you just single handedly destroyed the Granville Island tourism industry.

Now they will have to shut down... I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY NOW!
