Little Escapes

Although this picture looks like it was taken sometime in the late 70's/early 80's, I can assure you it was taken this weekend. At a place that feels like a bit of a time warp itself: Salt Spring Island. I was even eating a Wild Rose Gelato...which was gelato made out of roses (something hippies would have eaten in the 70's). Now, I've never eaten a rose before, so I didn't know what to expect, but it tastes like it smells. Maybe more like how rose-soap would smell. And tasted curiously good. Not that I've eaten soap...except that time I taught my friend a swear word (no wait, that was A Christmas Story).
Anyhoo, I know I just blogged about Salt Spring, but working and going to SS is all I have been doing for the last few weeks...and I'm happy with it. In fact, I'm going back here AGAIN this friday. And I don't think I'm getting sick of it anytime soon.
You see, I'm having some trouble getting used to working 9-5 (well 10-6 for me)...I never thought I would be in an office job (in fact, I looked down on them in disdain)... and even though this isn't your typical office job (interviewing Quentin "F" Tarantino doesn't come easily), I am still in an office for most of the day. So, most of the week, I am not doing the things I would rather be doing (ie, hanging out, doing nothing) and thus I feel stifled.
So how can I get more out of my life, trying to balance having one with going to work? Well, routine is one thing. And moving downtown (2 weeks baby!) is another...my commute will be cut in half and I'll actually be in the state of mind to get out and do something.
But until then, I'm going to keep getting on that ferry and sailing off into the wild blue yonder. Cuz a well-used weekend can do wonders for the rest of your work week. Posted by Picasa

you would make a perfect model for that new magazine, I don't know if you've ever heard of it...it's called, "Dirty, fat-headed, midget girls with ginormous behinds". Oh and if you don't make it modelling for the magazine maybe mommy and daddy can just buy the magazine company for you?...

Wholly shit balls! This is exciting. I fuckin’ looooove high school. Hey maybe we can meet in the science lab at lunch and discus how so and so once took a shit on the foot ball field. Oh! Oh! And how about that quiet fat kid in Social Studies that has a trany for a mom? Hey, how did you find that test last week? I got a zero because I had a hard-on and couldn’t walk up to the front of the class to hand the test in on time. Oh wait, please don’t put that in your grad write up, it would be embarrassing: “I remember the time Jeff got the H.O in S.S then went for a S.D on the F.B.F! I hear his mom is a trany.”

Wanderlusting said...

Well said Jeff, well said.
PS dont make fun of tranny's...you might get some "annonymous" messages as well. And we'll have to hang our dirty, fat heads together.

Wanderlusting said...

and yes, I like to spell Annonymous with 2 "N"s and Traveler with one "L". Good thing I'm a journalist...

jeff and ross said...

Well, just as long as Anonymous doesn’t shove me in locker and call me “skid-marks.”

I'm cool you drool said...

I don't know you but...you just told your friend Jeff that he has a dirty fat head...and the conclusion that I have drawn is that if I ever met you, I would kick you in the ovaries.

skinny arms said...

I can't even think of another good comment back because your stupid, stupid face is rendering me from having any creativity...ew...

Wanderlusting said...

oh dear, this is turning into first class entertainment...I should just make this my blog and bring out the mud wrestling.

Dear "Anonymous Drooling Skeletor",
You can bash me all you want, considering you obviously don't know me whatsoever and are therefore just talking about of your bony arse. However, you did bring my parents into it, which begs the question:
What kind of parents must you have, to raise such a racist, little insecure girl? You can say all want...what you've been saying only speaks volumes about yourself. And I think everyone here agrees...it's not good.

Another good comment? I must've missed the first one, but thanks for trying.
And speaking of kickings to the ovaries, is that what your dad did to your mum shortly before you were spewed into the world? Might explain a thing or two.
They must be so proud of you these days.

Who the hell is this "anonymous" person?
Obviously no one confident enough to leave their real name or a photo! Not that there would be any comparison when up against Karina - she's the most gorgeous woman I know! I don't know any man that would turn down the smart, classy, curvacious, blonde beauty that is her.
So fuck off "anonymous" and quit belittling other people to make yourself feel better!

MandeRs said...

wow! i just read all the comments everyone wrote...very interesting. "anonymous" you sure asked for what you got....what you wrote was uncalled for and you must have a vicious personality...and i think everyone hit it in thinking that you are insecure...high five guys and gals, you called it.
karina...i love the blog you wrote...entertaining as usual! love ya!

My long anonymous said...

OH MY GOD Anonymous how are you? Yes, I have heard of that magazine, great isn't it, I remember you being on most of the covers! I do hope her mommy and daddy buy the magazine cos then they can fire your ass and change it to the magazine for glamourous, smart, beautiful girls and put my dear friend on the cover.

And May Long, its good to hear from you, what would the world be like without your intelligent conversation, of course we know your name isn't Japanese, we all saw you on May long does August short in the shower, very entertaining though were the goats necessary??? I love the words you used to refer to my friend, word on the street is that all your co-stars say the same about you, no worries though there's always a cream!

Well I do hope you enjoy your frist year of high school girls, just a little bit of advice, if you intend to make it all the way through you might want to change your attitude a little.

Wanderlusting said...

Well, "Miss Anonymous":
Looks like you'll have to admit defeat to me AGAIN ;)

Savannah said...

Muahahaha!
