day 2235 – castle fun park

we made a detour to abbotsford on our way home from harrison hot springs. first time going to castle fun park. naturally our first stop was at the hockey accuracy game. we then hit up the throwing mound, batting cage, and dragon punch before settling for the less strenuous arcade games. i did a tornado kick and it may have caused some technical difficulties because the target didn’t retract after that. we spent almost three hours playing; it felt like pladium all over again

day 2207 – espr playoff

team espr at the riverway field bright and early for the softball playoffs. it wasn’t the playoff result we wanted, but we had a really fun season, my fourth with this team. each person took many strides throughout and proved that we could contend with teams from the top of tier c. for me, it was switching from first base to hold down the fort at third base. the captains handed out team awards this year; i won the comeback player of the year after missing some games due to injuries. but what i least expected and was winning the female mvp of this season

day 2180 – three bag

left my jersey in the wash, but at least i found a shirt to wear. first time i’m fielding on the right side of the diamond at third base. i was ready to take some balls off the body because the ball really kicks up after a bouncing on gravel. ended the night with only two bruises, one on the bicep and one on the stomach. i haven’t figured out how to take high balls off the backhand but i did made some pretty good stops and threw out two runners at first base. the team played really well defensively considering we were playing opponents a tier above

day 2164 – triad locker

i played pretty horrible game of civil war, but still had fun off the ice. all the fun horsing around in the locker room making jokes, discussing pick up draft, chucking tape balls and locking out people. the squirtle squad locker room is never a dull moment. i felt like i at least had my legs under me second game back, but playing centre and forechecking in an olympic-sized rink will do it

day 2156 – shower squad

homemade wings, pizza and charcuteries board to go with tnt bought matcha popiscles for the shower squad. we had lots of catching up to do after not having hung out for over four weeks. we ate and talked, ate some more and talked some more before playing several rounds of taboo. the night didn’t end until 1:30am because we had so much to do talk about. this was a good night and wish it would happen more often

day 2115 – housewarmers

a house warmer that started off normal with takeout chinese food for dinner, usual cup games, and board games; my team lost in flip cup but we were undefeated champs in beer pong. as everyone started getting tipsy, the party shifted to pullup challenges and arm wrestling matches. i’m surprised i faired well taking some by surprise and putting up a fight for ones i didn’t think i’d stand a chance. i can be confident in my right, but the same cannot be said for my left arm because of what my thumb had to go through

day 1918 – venom pumpkin

my team’s jack-o-lantern submission, the venom, came second in pumpkin carving contest. dressing up to work today is obligatory because this office takes halloween very seriously. i didn’t put a lot of thought into planning my costume but pulled out a last minute burglar outfit. a whole afternoon of halloween extravaganza with food, contests, games and pumpkins. it was actually quite tiring and maybe more tiring than actually working
