HELLO VANCOUVER

We made it. So far so awesome.

Of course this week started with an amazing fundraiser for X-Files fans. I posted this recap on my other fan site as it was not David Duchovny-centric. But we raised $1400 through our own ticketing and my understanding we inspired some other donations form fans and a matching pledge by Mitch, himself. THANKS TO ALL!!!

My evening with Mitch Pileggi – NYCC Off-Site Fundraiser

This $3000 goal does not include the $1400 from our event Sunday. SO – AWESOME!!! X-Files clearly has THE BEST fans.

Yesterday started with me mad rush packing. I was cramming for this test like any other. Of course I did not heed warnings about it being colder and wetter. I packed a couple pairs of pants and light hoodies but otherwise, more ready for Australia in February with this bag of cloths. I ran to the store for some las minute toiletries etc and found this…

So hopefully next time we play soccer in parking lot before concert no one will get hurt. No more broken noses. NOT EVEN FOR DAVID!

I am pretty sure the UBER driver took a long shot to save a couple bucks on the turnpike. There were a lot of local roads for Jersey. It was only 3pm and we probably added 20 minutes. No worries, as the flight did not leave till 7pm.

Being a big guy anxiety was setting in as we boarded. It was like a Broadway Show, we have assigned seats but folks just HAD to be the first on the plane. When it was our time to board as ZONE 3 the crowds for ZONE 4 & 5  were practically blocking the way. Everyone needs more time in Times Square to learn how to act in a crowd. Be patient and more self aware. PLEASE!

Once on the plane it was very nice. The aisles seemed larger than most flights we have boarded in recent years. Even the lighting on AIR CANADA seemed to say we have more hope up north.

Paying a little extra for foot room the snugness of the seat was disheartening at first. It was a little tight.

Until I realized that NO ONE was coming to my row. The flight was slightly undersold and I suppose most do not have my issues of size, not paying for the extra space. So I inched over and spread across three seats with killer leg room.

If only the seat to my right had a moving arm I could have had a couch.

I had intended to listen to BUCK F*CKING DENT audio books but I was ready with some options.  Good thing because the flight attendant told me to remove my headphones for take off. Looking around and seeing no one else taking them off my temper rose, mildly – cause who could get mad on a flight with this much room to spread out.

We finally landed in Vancouver. At first I was annoyed by impatient Canadians that clearly were in a bigger rush (French Canadians I assume), colder wet air and the escalator being out as we deplaned. But the cancer sign in me soon calmed as I feel in love with the water features.

Totally lost

So we got in a cab and saw our first glimpses of the city to be our home the next 5 days.

If only I had remembered to turn off my alarm which went off at 7am – NYC time.

Now I am off to the hot tub waiting for all to arise. UNTIL NEXT TIME…. (like in a few hours most likely lol)
