I wasn't born an octopus.

 

 

Soon you will also not be born male or female, that check-off will be gone from your birth certificate.  You'll be "fluid" until you make that decision on your own.

And the actual harm of that would be?

This reference to the final track on the Tinto Rocks' psychedelic album "Rex Herring the Unicorn" is going to go over most people's heads, I think.

This thread has gone way too negative and we should instead come up with some positive things to say about University Heights.

Uh, you first.

Probably none really.  Not sure why we have to designate that now.

It's grown larger over the years, I think we can all agree on that.

I got some rather nice hanging baskets from the garden center at HD.

And just to clarify, all of this talk about the video and Home Depot policy is pure speculation. None of us know what the police know or don't know, what HD has or has not revealed and how they are or are not cooperating with police.

Mike, why don't you take your VV press credentials over to HD and ask some probing questions, then we can put an end to all this speculation.

HD is currently out of blue tarps as they are being used to keep lookyloos from peering into the former paint section.

Yeah, that is what I thought at first but apparently whoever decides these things has declared that sex (or sex at birth) and gender are two different things that are, from what I can tell, separate and divisible.

The underground parking is good on a rainy night after you come out of the movie having eaten the best popcorn in town.

There's an article by Saanich News about University Heights,

 

https://www.saanichn...ersity-heights/

 

partly about a new gaming store, but also some comments about potential for development, including this....

University Heights could use a total re-imagining.

/\....yup it was always a pretty basic, pedestrian, 'meat and potato's' kind of mall right from the get-go; I grew up around the corner on Cedar Hill Rd and remember the *big deal* at the time was that K-mart coming to Victoria!!!! It was kind of sold to the local yokels as the second coming of McDonald's.

 

That said given its key location on two major arterial roads, several heavily utilized bus routes and as a 'gateway' to what passes as our version of the Seattle U-district, a residential component really should be a cornerstone of any re-development, even more so than at Hillside Mall.
