Spring! Walking downtown at lunch today, I saw two young men, shirtless and muscled, tossing a football back and forth in the park. I VERY reluctantly went back to work.

"In a world..." ...Hal Douglas has died, at age 89. You didn't know him, but you knew his voice. Here's his wonderful trailer for Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedian":

And "5 Guys in a Limo" always cracked me up:

Thank you, Google, for honouring Ayrton Senna's birthday today. He would have been 54. Probably the greatest Formula One driver that ever raced.

Story
Tagline
One adventure after another... Vancouver Island, BC
Introduction
I'm a graphic designer into advertising history, theory, and psychology; Reddit; Top Gear (UK only, thank you very much); interior design; UK real-estate TV; Photoshop; playing with photography and art-making, and Formula 1 racing. I live as far west as you can go in Canada, where it almost never snows in winter. The number of books in my library is far too high to be considered healthy. My life is one adventure after another. PJ is my legal first name.
Bragging rights
When younger, made 427 skydives, 6 of them naked. Geek street cred: sci-fi addict by the age of ten. Ran a BBS (online bulletin board system) in 1985 on a Commodore 64, the only female sysop in western Canada. Love to dance; love to cook. Love to be on the water. Learned how to walk on a houseboat. Can do the Spock eyebrow, and wiggle my ears independently of each other. I was conceived a month before my fraternal twin sister (very rare, but it happens). I've never been bitten by a mosquito (also true. Thanks, Mom! She was never bitten either). Not even in Yellowknife, NWT in June, on the longest day of the year making a skydive in the Midnight Sun, just short of the Arctic Circle.
Education
  • St. Peter's High School
I just took my brother to the Fisherman's Wharf location for coffee and a breakfast snack. I have celiac disease; I'd noticed some sweet gluten-free bars in the display case, so I asked the woman running the cash and taking orders about gluten-free choices for breakfast. They have breakfast wraps; did they have them available with corn tortillas? Her grasp of English was very bad; she had never heard the word "gluten" before and didn't bother to ask her manager about it, just stared at me impatiently. She treated me like an irritant. I gave up and pointed to a sweet gluten-free bar. My brother ordered a pre-made breakfast sandwich to be heated up. We sat and waited ten minutes for it; then found that this woman had forgotten to put in his order at all, even though I'd paid for it. When my brother went to inquire, she just shrugged and stomped off to get it. We sat again waiting for it, and finally my brother went up and found his sandwich had been just left on the counter to get cold. No one alerted him to the fact that it had been ready for some time. There was no apology or even acknowledgement from anyone for any of this! I won't go back to Moka, and I'll tell everyone I know to avoid it as well.
