Met Eric at Cambie / Jacombs yesterday, and sympathized when he tried to get his radio to work. When Team 1040 did work, it worked too well since the volume was way up! Went to Chicago Subs, but found out it was closed... so went to Subway instead. Got caught in a hailstorm right before the Knight Street Bridge, and remarked that the weather was absolutely ridiculous! (as Jeremy commented to me later, "It was sunny and nice... rainy... and now it's snowing in mid-April!") Talked about life, promises, vegetables, and more on our way to church. Saw Martin when we got there, and we all complained about the weather. Didn't see Raymond, so have just sent him a message via the Scrabble chat box saying I missed him, haha. Pastor John commented on the fact that Dylan, Eric, and I were having subs for dinner - it's wot we do when we have no time to eat otherwise! The career discussion was interesting: faith, not saying stuff when you're upset because you'll regret it 99% of the time, changes, sacrifice, conflict, etc.
Talked to Calla, Johnny, the "different woman" Teresa, Andrea, Grace, Chrystal ("eat three pieces of cake for you, me, and Eric since I might not be there!"), Chung, Jeremy, and others about the birthday thing next week - I'll email Chung to remind him about it by Thursday! He can do Chuck's before he goes to the Marrs, which relieves Jeremy of a burden on his novelty of a Winnipeg business trip on relatively short notice! (they told him on Monday?!) I should get Jen to do Andrea's, since I'm getting Andrea to do Teresa's because she says she'll be here next week. Teresa asked Jeremy whether he had any relatives in Abbotsford (inspired by Uncle Patrick's IT souvenirs of pins, pens, and light-up pens), and whether they were German - that's the way it usually goes, he told her while grinning at me! Jeremy and I were way too amused by the light-up pens, haha. It was too cold in the basement, so it's a good thing I brought my U of T hoodie!
I talked to Alan and Dianne for a bit about the Sun Run, free shirts, and other things. Alan left, then came back to announce that it was really snowing outside. With an exclamation of "It WHAT?!", Grace / Chrystal / Dianne / I raced upstairs to see the weather - man, those were some big snowflakes! (I remember the time in 2001 when Dianne asked whether we were proud of the snow on her toque, haha) Christon, Eric, and Jeremy had a geeky discussion about the weather, too. Discussed whether Jeremy would be okay biking home, and he told us that he'd biked on the worst days of the year in December - like the one where church was cancelled here, so he could go to a church which was further away! Good times, except not really.
Bantered with Janette, Julie, Isabel, and Stanley upstairs (watching an ESTHER movie) before we went home. Must ask Eric T. how his grad recital went, since I wasn't there! Gave Jon a bag with bacon-ranch Pringles chips and the wedding MC book from the Richmond library for Steph, plus the Earth Day GEORGIA STRAIGHT issue which he and Jeremy can share. He discussed worship practice time changes, tapeworms, Scotch, obesity treatments with tapeworms, tapeworm pills, Scotch dates, Scotch tape, thesis stuff, Ray, the business trip, and other things with Jeremy and Nathan via cell phone on the way home - HAHAHA! Since it's now almost 2 and nobody's called to say Awana is cancelled, I assume it's still on. YAY, HENRY! ("sir!") Also... yay for Richmond since you can barely tell it snowed here because of the lower elevation! (East Vancouver is definitely higher!) Have also emailed Eric, haha.
