I like that! I grew up on Cortes Island.
Ah, I looked it up. The furthest north I have been is to Parksville for the sand castle contest, and I think Cortes would have been a distant spot from the water's edge there. I'm sure it is beautiful. I like visiting B.C. - it's not as crowded as it is even in Washington, and the natural scenery is breathtaking. A far cry from the oppressive noise and smog and imported water of L.A. But I do like the sun (it actually shines 90% of the time) down here, and the trees and flowers are so different - very bright and colorful. Every place has its perks, I guess.
I did fall asleep on the couch this time, and got to none of my tasks, because I'm re-reading a favorite book, and I almost never have time to read, so I just blew off my list. At least for last night. I'm off work again tonight, so I can get to everything, and will be more motivated. I don't have the chronic fatigue that some people have, but the general fatigue of working long hours sometimes catches up with me. And despite the fact that I don't have as physically demanding of a job as a laborer, my job is physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual, so it takes a lot out of me. I did catch up the budget, though, and I get paid on Friday. I imagine we'll end up putting quite a bit on the credit card for our trip next week, so I'm thankful for the busy season coming up (roughly mid-July to mid-October). I can pull extra hours then. Of course, I'll probably get all kinds of calls begging me to come in when I'm in Portland & Seattle, and then all those extra shifts will disappear as soon as I get back. Seems to happen without fail.
We finally finished Doctor Who, and we're caught up to where everyone else is. Ryan found a group in L.A. that does Doctor Who based improv, so we're going this Saturday. It's so funny that we've become (even worse) nerds this quickly. I ordered Ryan a cover for his iPhone with the design of the Tardis. It probably won't get here until after we get back from our trip, though. I know he wants to order a few shirts, too. But now we have to find a new Netflix show that we both will like. I know, I know, we could watch the classic DW, but apparently Netflix only lists partial seasons, and doesn't have Pup's extensive collection.
Okay, off to get some (more) sleep for the day.
