Ticket to Ride

I bought Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries. Apparently, it's the hardest map, has some new rules, and very competitive among 2-3 players. I really enjoy playing Ticket to Ride: Europe and because a number of my friends have this game, I'm stoked to try out this new edition. The graphics are sweet with a Christmas theme.

Staring At The Sun

I'm On A Train - Ep. 6 - A Chinese guy kept staring at a pretty white girl when she looked away for a few seconds at a time from Surrey to Burnaby. It reminded me of a quote from Seinfeld. "Looking at cleavage is like looking at the sun. You can't stare at it long, it's too risky. You get a sense of it then you look away.” - Jerry Seinfeld

Driverless Bus

I'm On A Bus - Ep. 14 - I get on a driverless bus. No ticket needed to be checked. A security guard hounds the driver when he comes back not to leave the bus unattended. The bus is packed with people and the driver demands everyone behind the red line. An old man tells me they should send more buses because it was packed. I tell him had the driver been here, we wouldn't have this problem. We both laugh.

Raising Kids

I'm On A Bus - Ep. 13 - A little girl pushes my knee with her foot from the stroller. The young woman with another baby in the stroller talks to her guy friend who I learn is 16 years old about raising kids. She tells him that she's 21 years old and the father is a deadbeat. She tells him to make sure he has protection so he doesn't end up being a young father. Raising two kids at that age, wow!

Walking Cane

I have received a lot of feedback on my bland looking walking cane. Some suggestions include that I should have picked a wooden one with a snake wrapped around it; one with a spike or a mirror (yep creepy I know) on the end of it; one with bumper stickers; or one with an orange triangle flag. I keep getting asked when I'm going to get my top hat. I tell them as soon as I get my colourful fur coat like Kramer.

Vancouver Rain

I'm On A Bus - Ep. 12 - An Aussie family hops on the bus soaking wet. The father and mother are wearing shorts, t-shirts, and sandals. Their baby in the stroller was a bit wet because they have no rain guard so the mother uses the umbrella. I ask the father if they are Australian. He says, "Yes and I can't believe the weather changes when September starts." I say, "Yep, indeed it does."

The Magician

I was walking home from the movie theatre, when a guy yells out to me at a stoplight, "Are you a Magician?" I said, "Yeah!", smiled, and nodded. He said, "Niiiice!" I guess he couldn't come up with something better because he was expecting me to say no. I chuckled after he took off. By the way, I saw the movie, "Extract," with my buddies. It was a funny flick by Mike Judge who made Office Space. Ben Affleck was good!

Siesta Physio

During physio today, I was lying on a bed with electrodes attached to my heal when all of a sudden I hear a man next door snoring loudly. It was like a bear taking a nap. He fell asleep with all these electrodes attached to him and my physiotherapist was busy typing away on his computer.

Easy Money

I bet my dad $20 that the Canada Line costs $2-billion. He thinks it costs $20-billion and says he has a newspaper to prove it. I laughed pretty hard! He refuses to believe that he is wrong. I thought it was going to be easy money, but it looks like I have to convince him that his figure is ridonculous.
