Why I’m an amazing friend

When my friend @yourepretty asked the internet…

I jumped into action. I responded with the only sensible answer…

Why does this make me an amazing friend? It’s simple. With my simple 10 characters, I not only gave licence to @yourepretty to have cookies for dinner, I also gave her someone to blame if she felt bad about it/herself later. It’s obviously my fault, as I suggested it.

As such, I’m an amazing friend.

* Please note, she did not take my advice, and instead had Thai.

Deep Dish Pizza

Last week, I went to the Miller Abode, and along with Emily, we made some deep dish deliciousness. The night wasn’t just about pizza, it was also about wine. Mmm, wine.

Sprinkling the parmesan on the deep dish pizza, we layered some sauce, sausage (SPICY!), salami (SPICY!), green peppers, onions, mushrooms, mozzarella, and of course sauce. It was bloody tasty1.

OM NOM NOM!

  1. Not bloody. []

Snack Day!

Every Thursday at my work is SNACK DAY! The greatest holiday, ever! This week, myself, and another were responsible for bringing snack. I decided to bake. Thanks to Smitten Kitchen, I found the perfect item. It’s got apples in it, it must be healthy.

I’m turn into a Miller blog.

Post-baking:

The black stuff on the side of that one muffin is a combo of brown sugar and butter burning. A few of them have that, oops.

#Rocktober 30 volume 30: Bloggers who Brunch

This month I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce.

Once again, the bloggers brunched. There was a lot of food. I provided juice, as I am a Jew. There was much bacon to be had. I’d say “don’t tell my rabbi,” but I don’t have a rabbi.
Has anyone else ever noticed that when you want to type “rabbi” you often type “rabbit?”
This is a hinderance in my professional life, as I work with a rabbi. Hi Noam.

#Rocktober 30 volume 27: Nerds eat sushi

This month I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce.

I was asked to pick a restaurant and couldn’t think what was in-between my place of employment and their place of employment (another Jewish school). So I went with the sushi place we had one before gone. The three of us ate sushi. It was tasty, even though I really hate that plaza (Sheppard and Bathurst).

I had some salmon. I don’t get it. It doesn’t have any taste. Tofu has more taste than salmon. Why would someone want to eat that?

#Rocktober 30 volume 26: Holy shit! I’m 30!

This month I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce.

My 30th birthday started with me not wanting to get out of bed. As I had to go to work and fix my work computer, which had hardware issues. Sigh. It was a really insane day, and I didn’t really want to do it.

I got to work, and got a-fixin’. Didn’t really work. Took the hard drive out, and begun a data transfer to a MacBook, as a temporary solution.

I hadn’t originally planned to be at the North Campus that day, but since I was there some of the younger staff members took me out for sushi. I was the only one who was 30 in the crowd. I’m old. We had fun, ate sushi, and was late at returning.

After work, I headed home, and barely made it home in time for party fun times at The Old Nick. First there were the Millers, all three. Violet was adorable, and friends were awesome. Violet was wearing her Beatles onesie that I bought her, before she was born.

Later a lot more people showed up, and we had fun, and we drank, and we ate, and it was good times.

I had their steak sandwich for the first time, it was good. Not my favourite thing there. I think that’s still the Razzle Dazzle, but that’s a brunch menu item (poached eggs on english muffin, with avocado and hollandaise).

We ended up leaving around 12:30, and the bar was empty, but for staff. It was a great way to spend a birthday.

Also, BOW TIES! I now own two bow ties1, both are amazing!2

  1. Bow ties are cool. []
  2. Thanks Nick & Alicia []

#Rocktober 30 volume 25: Coyote Willy’s

This month I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce.

I used to work at Broadview and Queen. I hated the job, but there were some aspects of that neighbourhood I loved. One of them was a Mexican restaurant called Coyote Willy’s. I would go there all too frequently, and enjoy their veggie burrito.

So I went out for dinner with a few of my former coworkers from that Computer-Store-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named (It wasn’t ClickOn), and once again ordered a tasty burrito. SO FUCKING GOOD!

I missed them.

#Rocktober 30 volume 22: Lunchy Lunchy

This month I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce.

Gathered with the Millers (all three) and Wat for lunch. Not much to say about this, other than we ate an exorbitant amount of food. It was tasty. They were awesome. I was still in pain.

#Rocktober 30 volume 19: Music on Clinton street

This month I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce.

Another Rocktober night, another dinner. I headed to Clinton’s with Allegra. I enjoyed her company, she enjoyed the hockey.

Also, goat cheese.

#Rocktober 30 volume 18: Road trip to Ethiopia

This month I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce.

Yay! I saw Laurie at Dirty Bingo, and we made plans for volume 18. He, Kelly, and I went out for Ethiopian at this tasty tasty place on Church, south of Dundas. The food was excellent, even though the service was slow. In addition, it was dirt cheap.

Even better, I got to hang out with Laurie and Kelly, and I never seem to see those two people.

Then I walked home.
