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 510 – second in as many

image

while i am at it, might as well have my two dodgeball team dinners on back to back nights. celebratory dinner of best team cheer award with wings night out. it was a fantastic season, we played really well as a team and made it deep into the playoffs just shy of a repeat tier champ. it’s sad to see a teammate leave us for school, but it was awesome playing with him and definitely will be missed. season 18 is no doubt a season to remember, be ready and hungry for season 19

day 509 – first of many

image

so the christmas feasting has officially begun, every meal from here on for the rest of the year will be a guilt trip cheat meal. this is all you can eat sushi with monday tier 6 champ throbocops. i generally dislike all you can eats because lots of food with no exercise doesn’t cope well with my stomach. did i mention i desperately need to hit the gym to work off all the unnecessary consumption

day 504 – wednesday crew

image

quality time with the wednesday night crew eating, drinking, playing games and just chatting. who would say no to free food that we are entitled to based on the hard work we put in to run the weekly show. so much bad eating over the holiday season and the the bad news is there’s more bad eating to come. as weird as it sounds, i think i am sick of seeing food

day 501 – execs unite

hungry executives celebrating the completion of season 18 at water kitchen in gastown. vdl’s human resources surprised us all with christmas presents, as each of us was rewarded with a pair of the newest vdl apparel personalized with our own initials. must admit i am relieved that we are at the season’s end because this season has been really stressful balancing out all my commitments and tasks, i really need the extra time just to get away from my neverending commitments

day 500 – tier champ

image

better believe it, we swept all our series enroute to claiming our title, but none of our games were really dominated. throbocops first season was a success and there’s no shame being tier 6 champ. i guess i am one step closer to being champions of every tier, four more to go. dodgeball season 18 officially comes to a close for me and that can’t be better news for my physio, kinesiologists and friends who worry about me and my ailing wrist more so than me myself. this also happens to be the day my blog turns 500 days old

day 305 – closing vdl season

image

pigging out with fellow execs at river rock buffet to close off a successful dodgeball season. a good opportunity to reward ourselves with the hard work everyone has put in throughout the season to make it as fun and as painless as it could be. total fail making a way to ginormous ice cream for myself, completely forgetting there’s a twist option in the centre between chocolate and vanilla
