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 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 510 – second in as many

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

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
