lantern forest on Granville

I’m really liking the lantern forest that’s sprouted up on Granville near Robson. I’ve been through it a few times now just because it’s cool. It’s amazing how something simple like that can completely change the atmosphere of a place. People stop and linger, couples kiss, kids play. It’s just a pity that it’s not much larger than it is. It would be so much more magical if there was a solid block of trees.

I was all set to take a bunch more photos downtown but unfortunately the battery in my camera decided to die. I really should have known. The battery’s been hovering around one bar for months. It’s just that somehow plugging my camera into my mac uses up a lot less energy than plugging it into my old computer so suddenly I can go months without charging it. I was lulled into a false sense of complacency. It’s a good thing I don’t drive.

It’s just as well though. Today seemed to be spontaneous conversation day at home. We had one of those rare-ish evenings where all five of us spent time together in the livingroom talking. During this time it was decided that we will collectively write the musical score for a porn flick, have lots of couchsurfers stay with us and find Mye a boyfriend, though this was decided after she’d gone to bed. Much careful discussion went into the creation of a list of characteristics that we think that such a person needs to have and now Wesley and I are on the lookout. Is it you?
