Project 365 Photos: #47
Gastown is one of my favourite places to visit in Vancouver, BC. It’s all vintagey and historic–awesome photo fodder. It’s also one of the hottest up-and-coming hipster neighbourhoods in Canada.
We decided to take the kids clothes shopping yesterday, and headed into Vancouver. My 13-year-old daughter wanted to hit the big Pacific Centre mall with me (yuck…I detest shopping), but my 16-year-old son scoffed at that and chose instead to head for Gastown with his “square” dad. He never believes his dad when he tells him about all the cool stores and restaurants he knows in the area (his office is only blocks away). So it’s no surprise that his mind was completely blown by the time Jane and I met up with them again.
After the kids had their fill of shopping, we stuck around Gastown for some dinner and nightlife. Mark and I couldn’t stop chuckling about how little our kids know about us. We’ve got some groove, baby!
This morning we were talking about how little our kids know about us again, and my hubby drops this bomb…
Mark: Jen, do you know who did this song originally (Debra Harry’s “One Way of Another” was playing on the radio)?
Jen: Of course, Blondie. Debra Harry is still one of the coolest artists out there.
Mark: I met her once.
Mark: Yeah. When I was working in New York, I met her.
Jen: How come you never mentioned that?
Mark: I don’t know.
Jen: Exactly when and where? I need details!!!!!!!
Mark: I don’t know. Probably in some meeting, but a guy I work with has been to her house.
Mark: Yeah. He’s in a punk band.
Jen: WTF?!?!? When I ask you how your day is, this is EXACTLY the type of detail that should be shared with me. Not, “I had a really good sushi roll for lunch.”!!!!!!
