Too much use of quotation marks

When I got on the bus the driver (women) "Socks and sandles, how West Coast". Is that a compliment? I said "Thanks".

The colour grey on these new buses always feels very "futuristic" to me. Like I'm on a space ship.

The only food people actually want fresh is pizza. For everything else they'll settle for preprossed, microwave, low grade substitutes.

It's funny how we change our voices to ask a question. We actually change the tone of the whole word we say.

I do my best thinking when I casually ride the bus with music to listen to. That or walking to a destination at a strong pace.

Is Ben Folds' Dad a stoner? The song "Your most valuable possesion" totally suggests that. Or else he "sleep phoned" him.

I like how "Spy Zone" has a poster for "The Borne Supremacy" hanging in its window.

Incorrect writen puncuation should be exed out like this x so it's clear that it was unintended rather than scribbled out which is less grown up.

Driving through constructables is fun. It's like a mini driving obstacle course.

I like cloudy days a lot. They are my favorite type of days. I do like other days a lot, but in moderation.

I love drivers who call out the stops. Is that not resonable to have that as a part of their job and not just a favor?

I like knowing my way around downtown it feels like I know the heart of the city.

I like actors or actresses who can play music and act seem like better entertainers. More well rounded.

A lead singer who is the "voice of the band" is really the core sound of their music.

In the heirarchy of the city services people, transit workers seem above cops, but below firefighters and paramedics respectively.

Granville Loop Park is a parkourists dream hangout.

The bus driver just denied a women getting on the bus as she takes medication and apparently caused a scene once before.

The "hotshot" bus driver I'm with just answered his phone at a red light and wrote a name or number from the person on the phone and pulls it all off before the light changes.

Some people always go out to restaurants to eat. Often have alot of money.

Big trip back to Ikea

I went a trip to Ikea to return a table top I got in the wrong size. Apparently I had a lot to think about.

I feel like I'm on a comedically epic journey, as I get all geared up to go on a long trek back to Ikea with a table top I'm returning under my arm. Like it could be a movie.

OH MAH GAWD! It is perfect for a short film. As soon as I put my headphones in you would hear my music (and as I put the left and right earbud in you would hear one channel first) and you would watch me sort of dance and sing along and tap my foot to the music as I'm doing mundane waiting and riding the bus and train and walking to form sort of an hour long travel montage of my character "feeling the beat" And since I have an Ikea box I can swing around and lean on it.

I love Ben Fold's sassy comebacks

I would like to see a cop that wasn't at all law biding when off duty. Who says a cop needs to be lawful good? I guess there are the "bad cops" who take bribes. But I want to see one that doesn't use his job to help him rob people, but just steals things and is a bad driver and does drugs and other petty crimes.

Some asian kid I waited with at the bus stop just approached me while waiting on the skytrain platform to tell me he saw me waiting for the bus (I was the only other person at the bus stop so...yeah) to ask me what was in the box I had. I remembered he did give my box a few puzzled stares and at the time I thought it a little weird. He seemed excited to hear I was going to Ikea with it and that's why I was taking the train. Odd.

People save diaries but they are the only people who should EVER read them.

I miss having a girlfriend. It really is the most fun you can ever have.

Okay the kid about the box just turned his head sideways and pressed his hand against his face and held it there with closed eyes.

I like how the more rural skytrain stations are so far apart.

I perfer the train over all other forms of travel. What does that make me?

I really think I need gum surgery and that scares me to tears.

I always get ink on my hands when I write

I feel my writting looks poorly of my intelligence

I've always wanted to live in London but I don't think I could ever make the move. It would be so hard.

I like how I can look really intense when I stare.

Ikea sells perler beads

Isn't that descrimination to have "Girl's Night" where girls get in without paying a cover charge?

Pages upon pages

I had a pretty productive evening while in transit to Justin's place.

Chasing a rolling baby carriage is the scariest thing

I wish I rode around a horse

Oh my god, ATB is so intense when loud. It's like mellow Daft Punk. Very relaxing and yet stimulating. It literally startled me as I walked down the street and someone saw me jump.

I love jackets with shoulder pas like markings or colourings. The best example I can think of is Star Trek Enterprise. That region looks cool to me when emphasized.

A quality another species could have is incredible internal gyro orientation so that they would ALWAYS know which way they were facing.

I wonder what ATB stands for? If I had to guess it would be "At The Beach". I don't know why.

I look forward to taking long bus or skytrain rides. I just enjoy riding them. It's sort of a fun tour.

I always thought "Chine Town" was derogatory.

I would LOVE to hear an orchestra play digital music like techno

Using this very notebook I just gave myself a not too bad music visualization by pulling and bending the two book halves at the ring binding and watching the slight gap change shape.

I love every part of sushi. When something runs out something else is equally as tasty.

Moving your arm is something your repetition has caused your arm to learn so that all you need to do is think the word and the arm writes it for you without any thought from yourself. If you focus your own energy towards it you can help it write better by slowing down.

I find it odd that I barely ever see people playing handhelds on the bus or train.

The PSP and DS are totally two seperate markets. One is for fancy 3D games with 1st or 3rd person controls and the other is for a unique interface and the ability to play games more like using a computer mouse by using the stylus, which are a different set of genres.

I have the worst writing grip.

I love being cognitive but on a different plane

Loud ATB makes me smile and laugh out loud

I LOVE walking with music, I would NEVER go back!

I love who I am when I'm walking, just not the rest of the time.

It's fun to walk through and amongst shadows at night

A notebook in a night!

I had a flood of interesting ideas while wandering Granville on the weekend! Here are some highlights....

Having a serious, fake fight with an imaginary girl/boy friend over MSN personel messages and seeing if anyone replies. Take it so far as to talk about murdering him / her just to see if anyone gets it.

A hurried man with flowers just rushed across the street against the lights. Once across the street he set the flowers down and I recognised him to be the begger who sits at the bottom of the stairs at 7-11, leaning against a street lamp.

I saw a sign

"HIPPIES please use back door"

I like street artists. I wish I could do that.

I once lived vicariously through an artist. I think that's neat!

This fire is outta
control, I'm gonna
burn this city,
burn this city

I often carry my umbrella as if it was a sword or a scabard

Daft Punk can be AMAZING at the right time

I enjoy taking public transit and riding my bike places. Cool. Plus if I had to buy a car I would pay extra for something environment friendly.

I like how it's called "environmentaly friendsly" when it's still just less bad.

Writting in italics isn't natural. Did people use to do that or is it a computer thing?

The internet is the biggest step we've ever made to a Star Trek esque future

A hand-painted deck of cards would be so cool.

When I get off the bus at an unfamiliar street I feel like a time traveler who just arrived and doesn't know where he is because I'm looking up at the street signs to figure out where I am

I would like to be able to do something to entertain friends.

Well since I always keep a notebook with me to write down ideas and remind myself of things I've managed to accumulate a few quotables that will need to be dumped here in one big post. So don't get to thinking this is what I'm going to be posting everytime. I will however post photos and tell stories about interesting experiences.

For the sake of clarity I do edit spelling mistakes and incorrect words when I can tell what it should have been. From time to time I may just post an image of my notebook though.

A TV show called Concierge where the whole show would take place in an apartment lobby starring a concierge who would greet character tenants as they came and went and he/she would see snipits of their lives as they walked through the lobby dressed, and acting, and talking, and carrying things, and the time of day they go out and who with and it fades to black and back after each time someone walks through so we learn about their lives.

I don't like old buses I feel like I'm in a horrible ghetto in the 70's/80's

In D&D or something fantasy, ink or pencils should be WAY more expensive than paper, not the other way around. Original spin.

I just saw a homeless guy with 2 dogs. That is smart when you live on the street. It was so cute both dogs were watching everyone pass while they laid guarding him as he slept.

I just game a passing motorist a "What the fuck, Jackass?" gesture.

In the future airplanes would be like buses. They are pay as you get on, resonably cheap, and everyday affairs. Piloted by surly, driven by the clock, rude bus drivers.

Crapping in the street is illegal but crapping in your pants is socially acceptable if unavoidable.

Being humble is an interesting quality. It is well respected yet kind of boring and almost robotic, or at least Data like.

If cars didn't have people in them they would look scary moving around for no reason.

To an alien race our traffic lights may confuse them due to our primary emotional reactions to certain colours.

I now understand emotional baggage, it is something you can NEVER get over and have to always suffer for and if you had the chance to fix it you would.

You could sell advertising to other stores by building the angle of your glass to reflect other company signs that people on the street walking or waiting at a street corner would see.

I sort of want an unexpected baby to have that young and scared feeling of getting in over your head and having to make commitments.

Kinko's is a funny name for a proffessional office store.

I really like Snow Patrol a lot!

Listening to loud music while walking at night is awesome!

I would be cool to take a satilite photo of the horizon of the earth. I would be like it looks from earth.

The energizer bunny is a really strange mascot.

Starfleet uniforms make people seem more expendable because like ant colonies there are 3 different types and they can be identified by a glance without knowing the person. I like it thought. It's smart.

Is starfleet a push button office job and that's why their uniforms are so dressy?
