It snowed in the Greater Vancouver area over the weekend and temperatures dropped below freezing the last several nights. I live near some water so there was less snow in my area but it still has been quite cold. For second year in the row, I’ll be participating in my own “Winter Heat Challenge”, where I try not to turn on the heat for the entire winter. It’s nights like this where it’d be nice to turn on the some heat. Instead, I just put on extra layers and use a reverse Snuggie that doesn’t have any arms.

I’m still very much enjoying my time as an unemployed bum. I can’t remember the last time I woke up before noon. It’s quite a treat to be playing video games at 3am and see that you’re the only one who can still be online. I have plenty of other things I’d like to do with my time off. Let’s hope I get to them all before I get another job, I’d like to finish knitting that scarf for Mr. Giggles.

On Saturday, I saw a scene being filmed for the movie This Means War starring Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, and Reese Witherspoon. It appeared to be second unit stuff as I’m not sure if I saw any of the main actors. They were filming in a parkade about two blocks from my apartment. A Jeep was being chased by a Suburban at high speeds and people were shooting weapons from both vehicles. What ever blanks they used were quite loud and made for an entertaining way to spend the last bit of a Saturday afternoon.

Well, I hope everyone enjoys their Monday or as I call it, “another day where I don’t go to work”.

  1. Just catching up here…

    I, too, saw a scene filmed for this film. A guy BASE jumped off the TD tower, downtown. Pretty cool to witness.
