Headed to the Canucks vs Predators game at GM Place, which is a pretty sweet way to spend my last night in YVR before heading to YYZ tomorrow night. Had a dog with fried onions and a pretzel too...and 3 tiny red wines. Oh, and did I mention we WON!

Yay, another half day today, which is perfect because I still have to buy my stepadad's present before seeing him tonight. A few minutes at Roots after work was all I needed. Dinner at the Keg was delicious, Ravenswood and Sirloin...another successful birthday dinner!

Pooped and tired. Stayed home to gather up strength for 3 more days of work!

Got home fairly early last night, but it didn't stop me from staying in to nurse myself back to health today. Went shopping at Pottery Barn (good thing I didn't drive because parking was a NIGHTMARE). Also went to Pacific Centre afterwards for that one last prezzie. Had dinner plans with a friend as my pre-birthday dinner. Baru Latino...never been there before but hope to be back. I didn't know I liked plantains, but then again, it was deep fried, right? Also got a ton of presents and feel truly spoilt. I'm loving my birthday this year so far!!!

Feeling much better today, so was able to enjoy dinner with my bff at Society. Their macaroni and cheese balls are heavenly, and so were the nachos and tiger prawn linguine. Friends dropped by after dinner for the Junk Food Platter - the four of us polished it off very nicely...perfect for PMS-ing potheads.

it was our department lunch today and we did it in Style at Bacchus in the Wedgewood Hotel. Bubbles and Reds...perfect accompaniment to my salad and shrimp club house. Followed by a much-needed manicure at the Spa in Hotel Vancouver. Pampered and pooped. I'm still sick but hoping that the supermeds that the clinin doctor gave me will work its magic!

Stayed home right after I got to work because my nose was running non-stop. Took some neo-citran and just stayed in a vegetative state all night.

A belated birthday dinner for a friend at Provence Marinaside - what a disappointment. Oh well, at least I'll know not to head there next time.

Monday already?

Another nice friend scored hockey tickets and I was able to watch the Canucks beat the LA Kings. Great seats with a great view of all the action. Had dinner again at Moxie's and went to the game after the anthem...hehe. Another plus, I worked only a half day today, so the four hours in between were filled with a visit from a friend that I've been meaning to see again. lol smiley face...

Rested again all day at home to recover (is it me or is the recovery period a lot longer than when I was in university). Headed to dinner with a friend to Earl's but not the usual one. For a change of scenery, he took me to the one on Kingsway, where I pigged out on sushi and wings. Very interesting conversations...

Totally reminds me of Ben and Nick. Makes me a little sad that our lil guys weren't as unique as we thought!

Stay at Home Saturday

After doing china white shots at bar none and late night snacking at tsui heng, I rested. It's like the 90s all over again! Headed out for dinner afterwards at Aki on Alberni and ran into an old friend...nice.

Friday Fun

Superstar lifestyle: kickstarting the weekend on Friday night: office xmas party, followed by dinner with a friend at Moxie's, and then dj kid cudi & lady gaga concert at Queen Elizabeth Theatre, and ending up at bar none with co-workers? Also headed to Tsui Heng for late night snacks and Uva for a night cap.

My friend was nice enough to take me to the Thrasher's game tonight. We went to Moxie's first to grab a good parking spot and then had a nice leisurely dinner before the game. It was a good game...we won, of course, I was there! lol.

Working Wednesday

Had a 12-hour day today because our company's AGM was tonight at the Four Seasons, preceeded by a quick dinner at Victoria (near the Hyatt). The meeting ran long and dinner was dry. Needless to say, I crawled over to Earl's (my home away from home, it feels like) for a bevvie and some good music. Always nice.

Dinner with an old classmate from Little Flower Academy at Earl's by my house. Stayed home sick but ended up going to BPL to return some books I had borrowed. She came to pick my sorry butt up as I had sprained my neck and couldn't even shoulder check! We spent about 3 hours trying to catch up on 10 years. I'd say we made a pretty good dent into it. Wow - we have SO much history together, it's scary!!

Dinner with my stepdad at his curling club tonight, followed by a snack at Habit with a friend whose birthday is coming up. Good times.

Suddenly Saturday

Strangest morning...I slept at 7, woke up around 11, and then showered. But for some reason, I didn't feel like I rested at all. Went back to bed, and slept until 4. I guess the sleeplessness of the night before finally caught up with me.
So having slept through breakfast and lunch, I decided that tonight would be a good night for an "all you can eat" dinner at Fish on Rice. Since I didn't have to watch the hoochie show that my dining companion did, I put away alot more food that he did...who knew that the entrance of FOR would be a good location for a photo shoot for the mamas...aye papy...I do like it when other people order at AYCE places, I always underorder...haha
Went to a friend's place for a drink afterwards and had a great time catching up, even though we couldn't smoke through Austin Powers like we used to. It didn't stop us from watching the movie twice though! LOL.

I know I've skipped a few Fridays, but I'm trying to make it up to you guys.
Here is a song I heard from the AMAs last week, that really made me sit down and take notice. That's saying something, considering both JLo and Adam Lambert fell. Beautiful lyrics, Lovely sentiment...get it? Diggy...???

Wing Wednesday

Indulged in some good old Thai Wings at Earl's yesterday! Sipped on a bottle of red and just chilled. I like Wednesdays that aren't too crazy...and I loved the bonus Dry Ribs at the end.
Grabbed a quick shower, turned my phone off and called it a night! Beauty.

Oh Tiger...

Hey, he may be God's Gift to Golf, but he's only human, right?

Hey it's Tiger, I need you to do me a huge favor. Can you please take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and may be calling you. So if you can, please take your name off that. Just have it as a number on the voicemail. You got to do this for me. Huge. Quickly. Bye.
Hear it for yourself.

Terrific Tuesday

Home after work to get ready for dinner with my favourite man, my stepdad. With my mom out of town, I get the enviable task of taking him out for dinner once a week! We went for pasta at L'artista...since he was lucky enough to have Chinese for lunch. Darn, wish I did too!
But at least we got to have a great meal, he had leftovers for lunch, and we split that yummy bottle of wine.
Home and decided to ignore the TV in favour of my iPod. Ended up in bed by 11 - even read a bit of the book I borrowed from a friend. Darn, he's back from his trip now, I think, and I'm only on page 20. Oooops.
