You know you're from Vancouver when...

I used to get different versions of "You know you're from Vancouver when..." emails... This one was new to me... :)

You know you're from Vancouver when...

1. Your co-worker has 8 body piercings and none are visible.
2. You make over $250,000 a year and still can't afford a house.
3. You take the bus and are shocked to hear two people carrying on a conversation in English.
4. You know what these abbreviations mean: PNE,GVRD, VPL, RAV, YVR.
5. You're shocked when it snows in the winter.
6. You've had a California roll for lunch.
7. You know more than 10 ways to order coffee.
8. You know how to pronounce Coquihalla.
9. A really great parking space can move you to tears.
10. Your hairdresser is straight, your plumber is gay, and your next door neighbour grows weed.
11. At 8:30 AM, the guy at Starbucks wearing the baseball cap and glasses who looks like George Clooney IS George Clooney.
12. You car insurance costs as much as your house payment.
13. The gym is packed at 3 PM--on a work day.
14. You can tell the difference between Japanese, Thai, and Chinese food.
15. You watch the weather from a Seattle TV station because it's more accurate.
16. You pass an elementary school and the children are all busy - with their cell phones or pagers while waiting for their personal rides home.
17. You're sure that you're the only one on the road with a REAL driver's license.
18. You don't even listen when the forecast announces "chances of showers."
19. The more expensive the car, the worse the driver.
20. You can tell the difference between Starbucks, Second Cup and Tim Horton's coffees.
21. You feel guilty when you throw paper or aluminum cans in the garbage.
22. You're not surprised to see geese throughout the whole year.
23. You can't remember: is pot still illegal?
24. If there's a day of snowfall, you consider not going to school or work.

Last night show

The show went quite well last night! I collected more than $60 tip in 7 minutes! The opening and the ending were fun and the audience were amazing! They were screaming and cheering for us all the time! We couldn't have asked for a better crowd! It felt grrreat!
My TC was filming the whole event and he brought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers! It made me really happy! He was super supportive of me in this whole process although he was really busy and had a lot on his shoulders... Thank you so much, my love!
By the way, our dance troupe has now a website and our business cards are designed and printed! They look sooooo good!

I guess I can relax a bit now after these past few stressful weeks!!

We did it! :)

We did it! :)
We performed the Guinness World Record Pole Attempt at 6:00am (2:00pm UK local time) Sunday September 10, 2006 in Vancouver. The performance was done simultaneously all around the world by 100s of women. Many from UK, Australia and Canada... some from the states, and some from Belgium and Netherlands.
The attempt was performing a pole routine repeatedly for 10 minutes continuously and consistantly.
We all had to be there one hour before the start time (5:00am Sunday!) to complete the paperwork in front of the witnesses. One of the witnesses was the representative from Canada's blood cancers association, since the proceeds of all the money we raised via our sponsors would go to the blood cancers association.
TC was the official cameraman for this amazing and historic!!! event and he was also one of the witnesses! The whole thing went great and my TC did a fantastic job filming us. The tape was then submitted to the Guinness rep as per the Guinness World Record instructions.

I had 3 hours to sleep afterwards (I didn't get any sleep the night before!) as I had to go to the dance rehearsal for the show I'll be performing this Thursday. I went to the studio at noon and rehearsed with the girls for 6 hours! I was exhausted and starving by 6:00 pm when TC picked me up to take me out for dinner! The dinner was really good! We then came home and relaxed watching StarTrek and enjoyed a few cups of soothing green tea and belgian bisquites!
