I got two valentines in the mail these past two days--one from [personal profile] sperrywink (with chocolates!! and a Captain America valentine!!) and one from [personal profile] dine. Couldn't have come at a better time since I've been feeling really blue again and battling the worthless/pointless feelings about writing and vidding.

Went up to Vancouver last weekend and stayed at a posh hotel. My friend was going to a hockey game, whilst I stayed safely ensconced in my toasty room with a lovely view, reading and writing fanfic and eating things that are bad for me. Honestly that's my idea of a good time. We went to the bar both before and after the game, and I had the charcuterie and it was utterly divine, and on Friday, the day we went up, we went out to dinner at our favorite place, a Belgian restaurant. I felt bad for my friend in that she had to walk all the way down near the restaurant again the next night for her game, but I do like walking in that city, even though it's always fucking raining when I'm there. Vancouver is now the second most expensive city to live in, besting even NYC, which is kind of mind-boggling when you think about it. Of course, when we were leaving, we got sunshine finally, but at least that meant a less terrifying drive back. I was just sad her team lost the game; it's never fun to drive all the way up there and watch your team lose.

Finally--finally!--getting into reading the Fraction Hawkeye books proper. It's taken me forever to do more than read a random book here and there. Of course it's even more wonderful when you're reading it in linear order.

I'm glad you had a bit of a fun roadtrip (even if you didn't go to the game) - Vancouver is a terrific city, and I should visit it again sometime soon; it's been too damn long since I've been up there

Belgian place still there and intact? EXCELLENT!

Now that I'm working again, I totally owe you cocktails, BTW.

Oh, the Vancouver trip sounds lovely (losing team aside)

That sounds like my kind of trip.

You're welcome!
