Other than those moments, I had The Golden Dogs’ Construction Worker (http://www.myspace.com/thegoldendogs) stuck in my head all day as I passed the constant construction Vancouver is undergoing getting ready for the Olympics.

Oh yeah, and some guy, I think through a beer at my from his car… it’s okay though because he was drunk and missed… good thing he was drunk! Most people have been encouraging though and have given some honks and thumbs up or solo fingers but I think those people are just playing opposite day.
