this is many months late but vancouver was so fabulous, i didn’t really want to stop to provide updates till it was over.
my roommate turned fake husband, christal, was the perfect roommate for me; clean, anal, and not-so-closet gay boy. perfect. i ended up playing on her softball team (i know what you’re thinking) which was loads of fun and as a result, also instantly gained entrance into the otherwise hard to locate homo scene. i only say hard to locate based on one past bad experience with katherine and chess. i stayed through pride weekend, had a jolly time and then jetted out of there hoping to return again soon.
the things i miss most about vancouver are the fabulous people i met, grocery stores within walking distance, wreck beach and being able to see the mountains whilst out and about. oh! and i also brewed my very first batch of homebrew – a hefeweizen which got good reviews from some semi-discerning palates. i’ll take that as a good sign.
