one day in van and the world's your oyster
I've found myself a really cool place to live-- a loft room with its own bathroom in a cute little house just off Victoria. I'll live with Aimee of the many hats (doula, massage therapist, artist's model, carpenter), and Kevin (poet and transcriber of conferences), a dog called Chester Brown and a cat (who I'm a bit scared to meet, but it should be ok).
After visiting the house, I crutched back to Cafe de Soleil, drank a blueberry and banana smoothie and read a goodly chunk of Neil Stephenson's Diamond Age. Then off to Gyoza King, my favourite Vancouver restaurant, with the marvellous and generous Rita Wong, who has just passed another birthday.
I've caught a bit of a cold. The body has not been cooperating these days...
