day 2206 – civil war bbq

by the time i showed up at the civil war barbecue, my window had closed and i couldn’t eat any food there. i only made an appearance but couldn’t stay out late because softball playoff first pitch is at 8am tomorrow morning. my neck and back is especially rough in the mornings so i needed to wake up extra early to give myself time to stretch and roll. i also preferred not to feed mosquitoes after what i’ve just gone through with the infections and antibiotics

day 2087 – sechelt home

the squirtle squad has arrived at sechelt, the place we’ll call home for the next three days. the twelve of us have this beautiful place all to ourselves thanks to a hookup. we only have enough beds for half of us, but i think sleeping arrangement will be the least of our worries. i’ve never been to sechelt despite it only being a forty minute ferry ride away. consider this a season end team bonder on top of our championship celebration. the weekend ahead will be full of eating, drinking, gaming and a lot of laziness. we brought so much food and alcohol in anticipation of a weekend of hotpot and barbecue

day 1844 – portabella burger

with the completion of civil war comes the season end barbecue. classic portabella mushroom burger is actually using a portabella as the top bun. it was a bit disappointing to run out of food at a barbecue. i didn’t get my weiner but i guess my body didn’t have use for that extra calories. we had to order church’s chicken just to feed the crew. just a night chilling with people i play with and against. i also got four big mosquito bites from the night even though i applied bug spray

day 1823 – team barbecue

there’s a few flakes but the team barbecue turnout wasn’t too shabby. there was a lot of drinking involved considering the rest of the guys are playing a game afterwards. i wouldn’t be in on any of the drinking games if i was healthy enough to play. i’m very disappointed i have to sit out, especially when i was ramping up my hot goals streak. the duration is indefinite until i get another assessment. i’m on a short leash so i could be off to the emergency barring any symptoms. i’m praying it’s nothing serious, but i’m also starting to worry more and more

day 1151 – grill some

for the first time in a long time, there was no training, meeting or hockey on a saturday night; this only meant we could have an actual saturday night to ourselves. this crazy one took me to gyu kaku barbecue to experience meat like never before and then ice cream to go with it. it’s good to eat like this once in a while even though the oil could potentially be hazardous. i’ve eaten well enough over the course of the month to have earned this treat meal

day 370 – sunburnt

third time in my entire life have i gotten sunburnt instead of sun tanned. after a full day out in the sun at tennis, barbecue and sports day, my arms are red, burnt and bruised. this is what i get for being lazy and neglecting to put on sunscreen, although i am sure my sunscreen is long past its expiration date. i was also assuming that me being asian and the asian blood in me would already decrease my chances of sunburns
