Disney on Ice t-Shirt

So last night Greg and I went to Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream. I must say, it was absolutely fantastic. I wasn't expected the acrobatic, flying through the air holding onto ribbons bit, amazing. Which is exactly how Greg would describe it I'm sure. He was so thrilled to be there, at one point he requested I stop "squealing" as he put it. I was having a blast. It was pretty funny when I reached the front of the cheap gimmicky keepsake stand and I requested my purple Tangled t-shirt, the guy working the booth said, "Great! Who for?" And started looking around for my children. Is it more embarrassing that it was for me?
Or that it was kids sized and actually fit?

I rest my case: spoilers = stupid + useless. 

Someone with a bad sense of humour called them that because 
they spoil the look of the car right?

Need 2 minivans?

This was in the Costco parking lot back in the summer. I resisted the urge to follow them to see if they make it home.

Elevator abbreviations

Most things we run into on a daily basis have abbreviations; numbers, symbols or shortened forms of words that are universal. Street signs, maps, gas station signs..but what happens when they're not universally understood? I have serious beef with elevator abbreviations. There's no legend, and I'm almost sure most people are just guessing what they mean. I'm thinking "L" most likely means 'lobby', but "G"? And the star probably has to do with braille, but who knows?

I don't care who you are, getting into a small box that moves isn't comfortable for anyone, they should make the experience as stress free as possible and just write it out.

Need a minivan?

I'm not sure if anyone else remembers the commercials that came on when I was a kid, and I don't even remember which van company did them, but they'd always show an overloaded car and say "Need a minivan?" Well I've been catching people, so I want to do a re-occurring post about it. I'll start with myself.  

This is good 'ol snowball and a free desk my friend Kristi and I picked up. We drove slowly to say the least.

Creative real-estate

As a writer, I can appreciate when people creatively portray things, but I think real-estate agents take this to a whole new level sometimes. A few key differences to watch out for, quaint means small, traditional means unrenovated and Semi-Lake shore could mean anything..

This house is selling in Tappen, B.C. near my grandparents house. The lake is across the road, underneath the power lines, and through the trees. No joke.
