Torture, Monty Python Style

I received a disturbing communique from Mrs. Peeps in Vancouver. I may swear off the computer whilst Mrs. Peeps is away; I am already having trouble sleeping and this is exacerbating matters! She reports that Ms. Blonde has taken a rift from "Monty Python's Meaning of Life" and is planning to make her eat herself to death. You may recognize this line from the infamous scene in the movie: "I couldn't eat another thing. I'm absolutely stuffed."

The day started in a civilized way: cinnamon roll and very venti latte from Starbucks. Then, a personalized tour of Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design and Granville Island walkabout, replete with a wee stop at the Granville Brewing Company. After all, somewhere in the world it was 11:00 am and that fact needed proper acknowledgment...

No visit to Granville Island is apparently complete without a visit to the Public Market, with many temptations. A warm feta & spinach stuffed bagel and an espresso with dark coffee from the Blue Parrot, chased by a vanilla almond pastry...ah, sweet death by internal suffocation...

Next stage in Ms. Blonde One's nefarious plan: lunch at Caffe Barney's. Marmalade martini, baked brie and chutney on a baguette. A long walk in the wrong direction, followed by a short cab ride in the correct direction, led to a quick stopover at the digs before heading down our favourite crack-ho alley to the Mouse and Bean, an authentic Mexican restaurant for a late dinner.

Rest assured my friends, Mrs. Peeps has a strong constitution and with perserverance and grim determination, she will beat Ms. Blonde One at her game. Stay strong, sister!

[Apparently Blogger is also full, however, more photos will be posted once Blogger has made some room...]

Seems the Blonde One is quite the "ne'er do well"-er. Perhaps she is part cat.
Do I detect a wee bit of jealousy in your writings Koko?
