The October 1978 cover of National Geographic Mag pictured on the right says “DREAM ON, VANCOUVER”. I wonder what that was about and if more than 30 years later that “dream” came true.
Thanks Ryan H. for suggesting this steamy Steam deal 😀
Penumbra Collector Pack (includes the games Penumbra Black Plague Gold Edition and Penumbra Overture) is currently on a 75% sale at Steam Canada. The whole pack is on sale for $5 US. Note that this buys you the game but you don’t get an actual DVD of the game; You’ll need to download the game from Steam.
Penumbra was developed by a small company with a small team of developers so don’t expect Half Life 2 gaming quality. That being said, it’s a marvellous game that’s well worth your 5 bucks. The game has a detailed physics engine and also conveys the dark creepy environment pretty well.
Thanks boris_cooldude for suggesting this ASUS deal at Staples. This is what he had to say:
Staples here (in Vancouver; all of BC i guess) has the ASUS 1000HE on sale for $399.96. It has the potential of up to 9.5hrs of battery life, wifi N, etc. I have been keeping an eye on this item and so far this is the cheapest I have come across (cheaper than NCIX, Anitec, A-power).
I had a look at Staples online and the Asus EEE PC 1000HE Notebook PCs seem to be on sale for around the same price in Ontario and most provinces too (just a few bucks more). This is a spectacular laptop and for this price it’s a steal. However there are a couple of things you need to be aware of. First of all the monitor is only 10″ which I personally find too small. It’s very handy when travelling but for day to day use I’d go for a larger screen. When buying the laptop from Staples make sure it’s the new laptop not a refurbished one and keep in mind that they have 2 different keyboards: US and Canadian. If you type in English only I strongly recommend you get the US keyboard. If you type in English and French then get the Canadian keyboard.
This Asus EEE PC 1000HE Notebook PC deal is available at Staples Canada online and in-store. Deal ends June 16th, 2009.
When you join the Jack Astor’s Bar & Grill VIP Club (mailing list) they’ll email you a printable coupon for $10 off $25. This coupon could be used at any Jack Astor’s Restaurant in Canada. This is a splendid deal in my opinion! On top of that they’ll email you coupons, discounts and deals every now and then and I’m guessing a special coupon on your Birthday too.
Also check out the cute animation cartoon on Jack Astor’s front page. Try feeding him different food (or the crayon and soap haha) and see how he reacts. Also ignore him for a while and listen to his hilarious comments 😀

One of my personal favourite entries was by monkeyincowtown:
Well Boo you’ve opened up a real treasure trove of memories for me with this one! I’ve worked in the service industry for many years and I have countless stories I could tell. However, there is one man in particular who was the nastiest, rudest customer I ever had to serve. Worse yet, he was a regular so I and my fellow servers would have to serve him many times a week. I was working at a very high end restaurant in downtown Vancouver. This man would come in several times a week. He drove a fancy Ferrari, which was always valeted out front, and quite often wore some sort of matching Ferrari clothing item ie: shirt, hat, gloves. Therefore my fellow severs and I referred to him as “Mr. Ferrari” (only amongst ourselves of course, never to his face) So anyways, Mr. Ferrari had man”charming” things that he did. When I asked him how he was and how his day was going he would reply by barking his drink order at me. No niceties for this one, he really could not be bothered to listen you. If I happened to approach his table when he was having a discussion with his powersuit buddies, he would bark out that I was not to be listening to his conversation and make me stand 6 feet away from the table until he was done talking (sometimes I would be standing there for 5 to 10 minutes!
