Our last day in Vancouver for the foreseeable future was marked by a lot of frenzied dashing about driving. Did some banking, visited a couple of book shops, picked up some replacement light bulbs and baby Gravol for the dogs. For my final Vancouver lunch, it was tacos at La Taqueria. Damn, I’m going to miss that place.
It’s an early turn-in for us tonight as we’ll be up
bright and early dark and early tomorrow morning well before the crack of dawn. Out of bed at 4:30 a.m., picked up at 5:20 a.m., flying out at 7:00 a.m. Crazy, I know, but I’m hoping the dogs will be nice and tired for the flight. They’re usually pretty good so…fingers crossed.
Just received word from the production office that the landlord/realtor of our crap apartment in Toronto –
is unwilling to let us out of the lease. They’re also unwilling to install blinds or dressers. So, in the event we can’t work something out and I’m stuck with the place, I will be posting the full address of this condo from Hell on this blog as I highlight it’s hilarious lowlights in regular instalments. In the event this place goes back on the market, a quick google search will bring up ACTUAL photos of the place…along with an honest tenant’s appraisal.
Today, I also bid adieu to my friend Vancouver Ivon who is leaving the city after fifteen years to move back to his home town of Toronto. Granted, since he’s a Consulting Producer on Dark Matter, I’ll no doubt be spending more time with him than I’ll care to this coming season, but it will nevertheless be sad to think I’ll have to make my own slow cooked pork tacos next football season. The end of an era.
Speaking of which – a blog dedication to Vaun Wilmott and the rest of his Dominion team for two ferociously unique seasons of television. And another dedication to Dominion fandom. Fight on, Angel Corps!
