mom wanted to do hotpot at home tonight since everyone was present for dinner. i think she was indirectly hinting that i’m rarely home and she’s not wrong. normally, i wouldn’t be home so early if it wasn’t for my failing foot that trapped me indoors. lots of food on the table with a full selection of veggies and some meat slices. there’s also no shortage of tofu because i need my daily dose
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
had a bunch of friends crash my house for hotpot because they heard i have the whole house all to myself this week. i don’t normally get a chance to host any parties simply cause i don’t have my own place. it’s my first hotpot of the cold wintery days. i’m so full from stuffing down all the food including beef, pork, assorted meat balls, fish tofu, mushrooms, daikon, and veggies. there’s a lot of cleaning up to do after stuffing our faces but fortunately there was a dishwasher within the group
stayed after class for another two hours until they decided to lock up the garage doors. i worked at front tucks during the extra time, something i never enjoyed working on. i made progress and started to get the hang of it just by going through the motions. i sense my front tuck might be getting close and the extra time and hard work will pay off soon. the gang wanted to go grab a bite afterwards. i haven’t hung out with them outside before. i couldn’t turn it down; i guess i will have to use up my weekly cheat meal quota for this
my mom prepared way too much food for the lunar chinese new year hotpot. it was a good dinner to close off the year and i’m looking to continue my workaholic ways in the year of the rooster; this is the time work extra hard. i’m stuffed but we did not even clear half the amount of food on this table, so i expect to have another hotpot this weekend. i don’t like the feeling of feeling bad for having eaten
doing an lunch hotpot and gaming get together with a few hamber buddies. i haven’t had the opportunity to chill with friends since i’ve had a hectic schedule. spent several hours catching up and gaming before i had to head out for skating and then a pregame warmup. i brought my favourites to the hotpot: fish tofu along with some fish balls, enoki and shirataki, but who shows up to a hotpot with carrot and celery sticks??
last meal of the year is a hotpot at home paired with a canucks win against the oilers. there’s no party for me this year; i just wanted to lay low and let christmas eve be as mellow as possible. i’m so done with all these feasts and drinking fests, this will be the last of the holiday craziness. i’ve been feeling tired the past two days but i’m not sure why i don’t sleep in during my holiday, maybe it’s the workaholic in me
