Type me something classy....

Well, it's Friday morning in beautiful Vancouver and I find myself between contracts enjoying the sunshine with a thick cup of coffee. Yes, you read that right, thick. Every time I brew a new brand in my French Press it can require a little finesse in measuring here and there. My “Word of the Day” app on my iphone has just informed me that special attention should go to “Skeuomorph” (:: noun: a design on an object copied from a form of the object when made from another material or by other techniques.) I'm positive that will be useful today…

On another note, I find this time has further motivated me to spend more time and energy on my book, which currently is focusing on relationship dynamics of predatory behaviour. My writing has become so technical when I go on these subjects, I am unable to tell if I am simply entranced by my own amusings or just bored to high hell repeating words such as “thus” “hence” “dynamic” “sociopolitical” “anti-social” and “thick”…. But I admit I enjoy it as much as the delicious urge to throw hot coffee on someone at one of my previous contracts. If I was to throw coffee on someone this morning I would have to aim 5feet ahead of where they were running to as the coffee is so thick it would be delayed getting there. Physics.

But speaking of angry people, I often wonder about those who mosey into the downtown core…. Why are you so loud and obnoxious? Other people who live in large cities, do you find this too? Is it like this in Ottawa, NYC, Seattle, London, Melbourne? Do people stalk your city streets as if they are predators ready to to stake their claim in your territory- as if yelling in the road is a form of pissing on a tree to an animal? I honestly do not think people realize that although this is the city, this is a residential area. I am surrounded by family buildings, parks, and even a school. Yet there's always a handful of tossers who think it's cool to parade around the city come thur/fri/sat, and yell their drunken little mouths off as if to proclaim their juvenile arrival.Yeah I get it, you're visiting from Surrey. (Sorry Surrey, but admit you are the fall out of most jokes around here). Meanwhile some of us work hard to live down here and have get up for a job the next day. Quiet you!

The only consistent parties I approve of and may one day investigate, are the constant “Tiki Party” signs I see on the front door of my building every now and then, accompanied by someone in a Hawaiian dress with paper umbrellas in their hair, stepping on to the elevator with an already made colorful tiki drink in hand. My browline furrows and I think, “Did you drive here with that cocktail already made?” They step off the lift on 4th floor where a big sign marked with a confused looking arrow and wobbly words “Tiki Party This Way” sits proudly mounted on the wall. And as the elevator doors close I think, “One day….”

Well, I suppose I should get on now. Have another chew at the coffee and get ready for the day.

By the way, this is not my photo, I do not take credit for this photo. It's random and I found it online.

Happy tiki everyone.

Well said, I certainly endorse your views on the "Mr Loud"s of this world. especially in a pub or restaurant where just one voice can be heard throughout the building. Grrrrr!

Even though its not your photo, your "entry for the day" fits well with a shot of a journal.
