Malaise In Calgary Chinatown
Chinatown Calgary has been our new home for the week. We moved here on Tuesday to be closer to Jeff’s location on “Hell on Wheels”.
Chinatown in Calgary is relatively small. It’s about approximately 4 blocks. I’m sure they envy the much larger Chinatown in Vancouver. We’re staying in a VRBO Vacation Rental By Owner (our go-to vacation rental website – it’s fantaaaastic) apartment for about a week. Do you know who else hangs out in our apartment complex??? Chinese Freemasons!!!!
I didn’t know there were Chinese Freemasons. Masonic Temples creep me out – something about it all seems very cultish with their esoteric symbolism + secret handshakes. I’d like to learn more about these mysterious Masons. Here’s Jeff representing the Canadian flag.
Awwwww/Eeeeeew!!! I’m on the fence about this baby pigeon. I’m all about baby animals, but this baby ain’t so cute – it looks like a plucked goose. Sorry bebeh pigeon. I wish this was living on my porch:
I don’t know who this jovial looking charlatan is, or if he’s an vaudeville performer, singer, comedian or dancer, but whatever he is looks like a whole lot of awesome + I bet he puts on one hellauva show! Thumbs up!!!
Go, Grandma!!! You can’t tell from that photo, but it was RAINING. I was wearing my knee length Patagonia parka, boots + an umbrella + felt like a proper d-bag. People were walking around all casual-like getting their hair wet, wearing open toe shoes – scandalous!
Here’s a little bit of Calgary graffiti, sponsored by Art Central.
For the love of God, woman! Put some clothes on! Look at that young lass walking by wearing a skirt with BARE LEGS, no less!!! Put on some stockings at least! I saw many ladies young + old walking around in the rain with bare legs. My, my, my, I do say.
Between running around in the rain + working out + having wet hair I started to run a crazy fever! No other symptoms, but my entire body was en fuego!!!!! I immediately was laid out in bed, shivering + burning up. This is what I felt like:
Except not blonde, with peaches + cream skin + looking tragically beautiful. It’s been raining steadily in Calgary + poor Jeff has been working nights in the mud + muck on “Hell on Wheels”. Here he is exhausted + geared up.
Poor Jeff, he works so hard. Only four more months to go! I said that to him this morning + it was not much of a pep talk. I do not envy him. Yikes, westerns. Good on ya, mate! I salute you! Oh, I have to give a shout out to Anson Mount for posting my blog on his Twitter account! I’ve had so many new readers come by for a visit!!! Thanks, homie!!! Anson’s quiet, just beneath the surface rage on “Hell on Wheels” is one to watch! Watch it!!!!
Oh yes, + let’s not forget Common. Hot-cha-chaaa!!!!
