day 1814 – potato wedges

a great win for the team as we strung together six solid innings to win by seven. timely defensive plays like my first time throwing a runner out at home plate. spontaneity got the better part of me today as i was driving home after my game. it wasn’t great but wasn’t bad either and i wished i saved my quota for good poutinery found in downtown. i didn’t finish the whole thing but at least i can say i’ve tasted the timmy’s poutine

day 1806 – westcoast poke

it’s been months of hearing everyone rave about these poke bowls and now i jump on the freight train. went out to ironwood during lunch time to give westcoast a try. i built a bowl with a mixture of atlantic salmon and albacore tuna with spicy yuzu siracha and wasabi aioli. the siracha sauce had an interesting taste, the good kind of interesting. every time i drive by the westcoast poke, the little shop is packed with lineup out the door. these bowls are really good and refreshing, but they charge way more than how much it cost to make these. i’d get these more often if it was only less expensive 

day 1800 – canucks showdown 

saw so many familiar faces watching the canucks prospects summer showdown. there’s a few highly touted prospects i’m really excited to see and hopefully one or two of them will make the big club next year. i enjoyed the format of the event cause i got to watch them in five on five, four on four, three or three and even shootout. the carve burger was okay, but there was no nutritional value. i guess going with the poke bowl would have given me some preferred veggies

day 1791 – fruitie smoothie

making an effort to growing my office fruit garden and conscious effort of eating more fruits in general. though it’s missing one of my staples, i gathered some of my favourite including mangoes, peaches and bananas. i’ve been pretty adamant in making some semi meal replacement smoothies with my portable blender. can’t wait until it’s cherry season, but sad this year i’ve lost my sources from friend’s kelowna farm

day 1769 – may birthday cake

big save on cake at showtime for all the may babies in the office. last year may babies got ripped off on our faceless cake. this year, we sure got an extra large cake with our caricatures on it. it seems absurd to be recelebrating a birthday that happened a month after the actual date. after stuffing my face, literally, i went for my second tricky class and got more practice flips in. i hope to attend as often as i can cause i want it back soon

day 1767 – dbag

i felt bitter as i came out from civil war to see this happen. i don’t know which douche bag would park like this and expect me to not scratch their car while loading my hockey stick. this douche is definitely asking for it since this wasn’t the only parking stall left in the lot. i really wanted to leave a note or leave a mark for the douchebag, but figured it’s late and all i wanted to do was get home to rest up for an early morning game. i hope the owner of this car doesn’t score a single goal a all season long

day 1758 – cad conversions

it’s quite the feeling holding onto these sets of drawings knowing i’m over sixty percent through. cad conversion is almost a project on its own that i started managing last year. it’s tedious and mundane work but it must be done for the greater good. i’ve utilized much manpower to get to this point – one full time, one part time and two intern students. hoping that my new summer intern can get what’s left done and we can put this project behind us once and for all
