I've always had this strange fascination with tour guides.

They must hate thier jobs, I thought. They must only care about the money. They must loathe dealing with hearing-impaired tourists.

Then one day last summer I was talking to a friend about how I didn't have any direction. About how, even if I could afford to go to school, I'd have absolutely no idea what to take. Nothing at a school interests me. I'd fail out of everything.

So he goes: "Well what do you like doing most of all?" And I think, and I say: "This! This is what I like doing most of all! Wandering around Vancouver, sneaking about every nook and cranny, watching the boats and the planes, smelling the trees and the mountains... I like hanging out and doing nothing downtown and around town. But I guess that doesn't translate into a career very well, eh?"

Then I was thinking, well, maybe it does. Ever since then I've had this silly dream of starting my own walking tour of Vancouver. Oh it would be so fun. I think I have a unique perspective, a lot of insight to offer.

For real, what could be better than talking about something that you are passionate about all day long? I dunno, I guess lately I've been seriously considering it more and more.

I walked around downtown all day today doing more research. What would I talk about? Where would I take them? How long would it be?

I think right now, with all the things I have on my list, the tour will be 4 hours long. >.<

Anyways, does anyone want a Vancouver 2010 Hoodie? I stole one from the olympic store, thinking it would be funny and ironic, but now it just feels so wrong wearing it. =/

Maybe I should work on becoming a model citizens before I start sending people on a marathon around our city, eh?

Lol. Thief.

What size is it? I want to steal a Quatchi doll. But like those MASSIVE ones.

Its a women's large.

Eh, you could probably get away with one of those. My stealing tactic this time was just to remove the tag, try it on as if I intended to buy it, walk around a bit more, then just walk out of the store still wearing the sweater.

People really over estimate security sometimes. o_0

Well if you don't want it. I seriously hate them and have no qualms.

Hmm, I wonder. I do like those dolls. Yeah, the security is crap.

We need to hang out sometime. :p

I hate them so much I am pretty much skipping my shifts.

I was there the other day and I had a 10 minute job for an 8 hour shift. I HATE THEM.

No problem. I need to drop Cam's movie off sometime. You available tomorrow?

I have to make a token apperence down at the compound but I'm free around the same time. I can stop by your place with the movie and we can go for coffee or a beer or something. :D
