Somehow, Victoria overbooked itself this weekend. There's the annual Be A Tourist in Your Own Hometown promotion (earlier than usual), the Canadian Homebuilders Association Home Show (in a new location), and the Times Colonist Book Sale (two weeks later than last year; I got some great bargains in 2006) -- all three are very popular events, and all are happening on top of each other.
Clearly, this city needs a personal assistant.
Of course, I'm not sure which of these I will be able to attend (OK, I won't be attending the Home Show), but I seriously need to get out of the house. We are all still plague-ridden... but so is half the city (seriously -- kiddo's class when she went in on Tuesday was down to 9 of 16 kids and a substitute teacher was in). I'm pretty sure we have the dreaded flu that we could have got a flu shot to prevent... next year maybe.
