Tuesday 31 July 2012

Living down in the West End, I sometimes forget out cityish downtown is.

Watchful nurse

Monday 30 July 2012

Back in the city, running errands.

BC board

Sunday 29 July 2012

Mountains, forests, home, peace, and salmon. Yep, that's BC in a nutshell!

For a good time,

Saturday 28 July 2012

We went to breakfast at Bonn's, a local greasy spoon, where patrons are encouraged to write all over the walls. I particularly like this comment.

Top of BC

Friday 27 July 2012

We climbed in the Chief today, a nice hike up in Squamish. Here's Ryan, on top of the mountain.

Thursday 26 July 2012

I won some free passes to Scienceworld a while back, so our friend E, who's visiting from Whitehorse, and I decided to use them today. A hands-on museum is the very best kind, in my opinion.

Granville entrance

Wednesday 25 July 2012

The entrance to Granville Island, where we're doing Rent.

Today for you

Tuesday 24 July 2012

My friend P gets his turn as the understudy for Angel.

West End garden

Monday 23 July 2012

This house is just down the street from us, and I dream about living in it.

On my ride home, along the seawall.

Poster shop

Tuesday 17 July 2012

We're in previews now, but Rent will open soon - I went to pick up more posters today.

My old initials - I couldn't resist snapping a shot.

Coming home

Sunday 15 July 2012

Our courtyard, that welcomes us home.

Alphabet car

Saturday 14 July 2012

The whole car was covered with magnetic letters (glued on, though.) Some spelled words, some didn't. You'd never lose this in a parking lot, eh?

Island view

Friday 13 July 2012

I certainly don't feel unlucky with lunch views like this!

On the catwalk

Thursday 12 July 2012

Fiddling with the lights up on the catwalk - it feels so good to be back in theater.

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Actor in gel

Wednesday 11 July 2012

We're in the theater now and getting ready for opening night!

Movies in the park

Tuesday 10 July 2012

This week is tech week for Rent, so I was at the theater all day and had the evening off. Finally, a night to spend with friends! We went to see Zoolander in the park with some cherries, some brownies, and some *cough* grape juice. It's so much more fun watching silly movies in a big group of people who don't mind yelling at the screen.

Raspberry babies

Raspberry picking today - I love Vancouver.

Saturday 7 July 2012

Today we had the sitzprobe (the first rehearsal with both actors and band, in which everyone just goes through the music once) for Rent in this awesome studio. One of the band members was essentially living there, and it felt just like a real-life version of Mark and Roger's apartment, complete with extension cords going everywhere.

Magic bathroom

Friday 6 July 2012

I went up to the fancy mall on the north shore to get our knives sharpened today. In said mall, I found this crazy bathroom where the mirrors have no edges and both sides are identical, so you can barely see the mirrors at all. Cool, huh?

Thursday, July 05, 2012

Science world

Thursday 5 July 2012

On my way home from rehearsal, I looked back over False Creek and admired the view.

Play ball!

Wednesday 4 July 2012

Ryan's softball team plays every Wednesday, and today they were short on players and asked me to join them. It worked out so perfectly, to go play softball on a sunny fourth of July!

Living wall

Tuesday 3 July 2012

I went up to Simon Fraser University today to sort out some details for the fall, and got lost. (Not easy to do on their campus, which is small and well-laid-out.) I came across this neat living wall, which was covered with various vines and mosses and whatnot.

A slice of Canada

Monday 2 July 2012

To celebrate becoming a permanent resident of Canada (as well as Canada Day yesterday) I made a delicious strawberry cake with a certain Canuck flair.
