End of Season Softball Party

The SSI Terrorbytes have officially ended our inaugural season. Everyone had a blast playing rec-league softball once a week, and we wrapped it up in style with a party out at Wayne's cabin on Jackfish Lake. There was a ton of delicious food for the pot luck, and I was happy to hear that everyone liked the slow-roasted pulled pork on a bun that I brought. We were planning on playing some Rockband, but the disc wouldn't load; I think it was just as well, since it was a perfect night for sitting and drinking raspberry wheat ale around the campfire, sharing stories and having a relaxed good time.

I'm already looking forward to next season!

The Lingnan

Wow it's been waaaay too long since my last blog post! The last few months have been sooo ridiculously busy that every time I go to post I get as far as the Dashboard page and then decide that it's too much work. Heh. So, I'm going to really try and get back at it.

Anyway, the fella and I ordered in from The Lingnan tonight. My friend Em used to live down the block from the restaurant, and she was always a little weirded out by it because there are no windows on the outside of the building (she's a bit of an odd duck... which she would totally take as a compliment). So, I've wanted to try the The Lingnan for years now just because of that, not to mention they've been featured on The Food Network (which I love).

We ordered: Green Onion Cakes, Gingr Beef, Cantonese Chow Mein, Lemon Chicken and Beef & Broccoli.

My verdict: eh, pretty good but nothing special. It was definitely tasty, but there wasn't really anything to differentiate it from all the other Chinese food I've eaten in my life. The high point was probably the Green Onion Cake with it's deliciously spicy red sauce; the low point was the blandish Lemon Chicken.

I'd order from The Lingnan again, but I'm not in any rush.

One of those days

You know when you're already late for something, and you seem to get stuck behind every 85 year old guy doing 40 in his Oldsmobile, and you hit every red light?

That was my day today.

I think I'm going to go into work suuuuuper early tomorrow and try to play a bit of catch-up, hopefully I'll have better luck!
