A Flight of the Imagination


So, I had an adventure. Honestly, the whole time, it felt like something Shaun Gaynor would have loved. Matt found a clipping for a "Movie Set Warehouse Sale". So we drive to Burnaby and there are 3 full warehouse bays of movie paraphenalia. There was so much crazy stuff in there. As I walked through, I imagined what kinds of sets would require each item. A nice flight of fancy...

Highlights:

Fake silver hyperbaric chamber and time machine looking controls - sold to a man named "Richard". Which makes you wonder - what kind of guy is this?

Fake Bank Machine - Suprising that some "entrepeneur" hadn't snapped that one up.

Suitcases & Trunks - All the good ones were sold, but there were some beautiful ones in the mix.

Unfortunately, I didn't buy anything. We were pretty convinced that if we got there on the first day, we might have found some major goldmines. Nevertheless, a wonderful journey for the mind.

Sounds like something you and Solonka should have been at together.

SHARELLE! It's Rachie here. Your revamped blog is looking very literary. Check out my xanga (www.xanga.com/racheljahner) - it doesn't look very literary, but I hope you'll understand.
