Been here for 4 or 5 days now.. I've walked downtown, gone to a mall.. even took a ferry thingy across the harbour or whatever they call it here, bought some stuff, but mostly I've been eating.

So, after a lot of travelling, a very long day, with a lot of daylight we arrived in Vancouver yesterday.. the day before.. oh whenever. Now I'm in a house with a huge number of people...

I mean I don't have time.. I still have to pack, and tidy up and.. well, the stuff I didn't get yet isn't gonna get got so.. spose I'll make it.
So.. leaving in... um.. tomorrow! Jeez.. and still have tons of stuff to do.. packing, cleaning, planning, shopping, and I've got a cool freebie thing to pick up which.. ok, it's good, it's really something I shouldn't grumble about but fuck.. I don't have the time, and can you believe there was a fucking transport strike yesterday! Well.. trams ran but few and far between and very packed, so it wasn't the most ideal situation for transporting stuff, or for getting to work for that matter, or for getting a bunch of tourists up to the castle...

Off for a big adventure again in just 3 days. On Saturday we're going to Berlin to spend a few days before going to London where we hopefully get to spend 4-6 hours in the city and then fly to Vancouver. Then we have a wedding and bat mitvah and a bunch of dinners and hopefully some seeing of the city and surrounding environs.

So much to do.. so much.. stuff. Planning, packing, cleaning.. I have to work later and I'm not up to any of it. So far I've done.. well none of it. I was forced, positively forced to be out late last night, to watch some hockey game.. ok I could have come home but I finished work late and felt like staying out and having a beer, then we went up to the bar with the game on and.. well, that goes for 3 hours and I had to have enough beers to fill up all that time.. while drinking quickly of course.

So.. still busy. Had 2 tours yesterday.. 2 actual tours.. one on the bridge, which went ok if long apart from a couple of people coming late causing a slight discrepancy but.. was ok, despite the physicist guy wanting a scientific explanation for orbs.. or something.. I tried to come up with one, though I didn't have one.. getting better at that. You think I'd actually learn more doing this stuff, and after a while have the answers to people's questions, but no, I'm just better at answering the question without really answering it, I think I do it somewhat convincingly.

Been busy. I might have mentioned that, or something to that nature, once or twice. Mostly with work, well with work, haven't had much else to do at all, and if I have I haven't done it. So June is suddenly summer, busy season, a few people left and/or on holiday and someone just got sick so I'm working almost every night doing 2 shifts, that is unless I'm doing the 3 hour (sometimes turning into 4 hour) Castle tour.. which is enough.

Well.. about to embark on what is probably the busiest month I've had for.. for.. um, ever. I mean.. I have in the past had multiple things to do at once, which each take about half an hour a week so I get on my big horse and go on about how many things I have to do, but this time it's mostly just the one thing, this job thing I have. I finally have a month where I got lots of hours, working almost every night, and 2 shifts on average per night so I'm almost up to about 70 or 80% of a regular person's hours. That is regular persons in one of those countries with very generous work week laws. Maybe. I dunno.
