This is from Frivolous Verbosities. If you like it, go there for more of my weird stuff!
Today I went to the Da Vinci: The Genius exhibition at the Telus World of Science, brought there by Grande Exhibitions, an exhibition company that travels worldwide.
There I was not only amazed at Leonardo’s genius and the incredible creation of his designs and blueprints. I was also amazed by the tremendous amount of work done to Science World.
In a pitiful attempt to introduce new scheduled posts à la Musical Mondays, it’s time to pitifully attempt to schedule new introduction posts with a new tag: Vendredis de Vacances! Which means ‘Fridays of Vacation’ in French, which I had to make in french to keep its alliterative qualities, for no weekday begins with a ‘V’. Anyhow, these posts will have me talk about my ~marvelous adventures~ in being an overbearing first-world snob and wasting money on frivolous tours.
So. Yep. Seattle. Again.
It’s a vacation post. Expect pretty pictures. Prepare for letdown. (HINT: The link in the above paragraph actually contains PRETTY PICTURES!!) Death of my life, it’s my character to only take ugly pictures
watashi no kyarutaipu wa terrible da»
Yes, I know. The pun doesn’t even make sense, because y’know, it’s actually May 6th right now and I’m lying to you guys about this post date. But guess what, O-New TRANSCENDS time and space, and I can post bad puns ANYWHERE, ANYTIME I want to. DEAL WITH IT
In this post which is not about anime nor manga and is instead about the life of the most boring person to ever walk the earth, I will talk about:
- May the Fourth
- How I’ve Only Watched the First Episode of Star Wars
- Dropbox Contests
- Cinco de Mayo
- Birthday Presents
- How I’m Not a Nerd Because I Don’t Play Video Games
- How I Learned to Love the Aniblog Tourney
- Flower Pictures
- Your Face
- Outdoor Track Meets
- Your Mother’s Face
Rest assured, I will touch upon every single one of those topics, and in that order!!
Yes, I will also touch your mother’s face»
As some of you may know, it recently snowed in Vancouver.
GET IT?! O-New, Snow-New? O-New stands for ‘ostriches never eat wheat’, while Snow-New stands for ‘snow never occurs when north Europe waits’. That doesn’t have much to do with this picture dump, but oh well.
sorry, north oceania was not endangering wildcats»
Yep, 17 days of vacation over from a visit to Historich. I’ll be breaking the post into two main parts, one of (gasp) the first half of my vacation and the second of (gasp) the second half of my vacation, since one post would be too image-heavy and I WANT TO UPLOAD ALL OF THESE IMAGES (really, both posts are more picture dumps than actual posts)! Unfortunately, I forgot which half came first, as I’m writing this post AT SEPTEMBER 5TH, A DAY BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS. I don’t even REMEMBER what I did because I LOST THE DOUBLE-SIDED SHEET OF PAPER I TOOK ALL MY NOTES ON :|
Wait, back up a bit.
IT’S A BIRD! IT’S A PLANE! no wait its just a person jumping
Fat kid in lane 2 WHICH IS REALLY Cirno in realistic human form with gender change
I used to have those pink goggles. Then they broke.
HA my armspan is longer than my height, take that physics!
TIMER ON THE LEFT HAS AN EPIC MOUSTACHE
Moar fly. no clue why they called it that though
why doesnt the metal on the blocks rust?
That’s the div 4 kigoo provincial team.
:) Awesome vandalism
Peek-a-boo! No, jk. He’s anti-social.
Us Kigoos are pro’s at skipping. Also, notice how we’re all wearing crocs.
Blastoise! I choose you!
Tired person after race.
We’re all running off to do cheers.
UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA POOL. THIS IS WHERE PRO ATHLETES TRAIN YEAH
Dum dum dum dum.
There tends to be a lot of waiting in between races, some parents make their kids to Kumon
Concentration is key in a race
Moar intense breastroking.
Typical warm-up, just dives and turns
Random photo, don’t ask
for a relay takeover
While getting into a streamline
He’s got muscles, man.
I pushed my friend into the water, ironically, it said “Instant Swimmer, just add water” on the back of his shirt.
Intense concentration before races, in other words, lying around and annoying other swimmers
The guy in lane 4 [Red and Blue swim suit] has the best dive overall. Also, a timer appears to be drinking coffee on the sidelines.
Me and my friend started drawing mascots for all of the team, that was our mascot.
Some of us just don’t like pictures of them
Hi mom, I see you on the bleachers watching my race!
McDonalds? Tsk, tsk.
Asian pose with a random swimmer sticking out his tongue in the middle
Alright, picture dump! There are 50 photo’s in total, each post will have 10 of them. The pictures where you can see people’s faces clearly may be removed in the future depending on certain individual’s preferences. Anyways, enjoy!
Originally, when we arrived at our hotel for Provincials, “Kigoos” wasn’t on the board. What did we do? We took a marker and wrote our team name.
In previous years, our provincial shirt was a spoof of something, last year it was “got water?”. I guess this year we didn’t have any ideas cause it was just a plain, boring shirt.
At night in Kamloops, BC. The lights are really pretty.
Kamloops, dun dun dun. The tournament capital.
Swimmers do have lives, we play all the time.
Again, a swimmer on swings.
The program for the meet, it’s really durable, unlike other programs. It did cost 8 dollars though D:
Our relay won a bronze medal!
We’re the Kigoos, I think we did pretty well
