It's back to work tomorrow, so I'm taking one last day to really enjoy myself.
I have to say it's been pretty weird having been off work for three months during the school year. I'm saving most of it for a "rehab post", but suffice to say it's been pretty starnge
Reading Sunday Gravy this morning, I was struck at how many people from the site have already been partially vaccinated. Given that over 61 million Americans have already gotten at least one shot - and a couple of 'grandmothers' tried to get their second - it reminds me of how
First of all, how awesome is it to have Sunday Gravy back?
Now, it's damn-near impossible for me to find some of those particular ingredients for today's recipe in Vancouver without having to go to some COVID-questionable parts of town. The banana leaves & paste? We do have a joint called
As August winds down & September beckons, I'm reminded of a particular quirk in North American education programs.
Why do US schools open in August?
I'm constantly reminded of this seeming anachronism every year, but the COVID issue has made it particularly acute, as it's on the news constantly. Do southern schools
I was scanning the weekend crossword for my mother-in-law yesterday when I accidentally saw the weekend "Family Circus" cartoon.
I didn't want to look - the "funnies" haven't been good since "Bloom County" left.
But it was on the opposite page from what I had to scan, so there it was. It
My quest to spend all weekend intoxicated continues apace. Time out was taken to doing the gardening chores today, but that just meant "hard work" beers, which were "Trash Panda IPAs".
A tad heavy, but since I was done for the day I didn't much care. They were cold, in my
Or, your Day 2 of the May Canadian Holiday Weekend Open Thread.
Today we decided to take advantage of the relaxed restrictions to invite some friends over for dinner & drinks. The great thing about the three day weekend is that you can Sunday drink with no ramifications. (I realize most
So, one of the fun things about the apocalypse was the fact that I didn't have to go anywhere or do anything. Aside from doing my job, I didn't have to interact with any other members of the human race outside of my immediate family.
But our washing machine broke. I
Well, this is the first actual day of the outbreak with no sports on evening TV. I hope you've all got topics you want to discuss.
Me - I want to discuss how we've all let each other down.
Many times, in the comments, especially during the regular season, we've asked Balls
Summer finally arrived in Vancouver.
But thanks to the rain earlier this week, most of the beaches - including Ambleside,
near my house - are closed due to elevated e.coli counts. While it's fun to blame it on the rain
and the associated runoff of animal fæces, in the case of Ambleside it
Today was the first of two major sport free-agent negotiation windows. The NBA's started today, and the salary cap for the NBA this year is $109.14 million, up seven million from last year. Negotiations could officially begin as of 6:00PM ET today. Before I left for the ballpark to get
It might be Sunday night, which signals for the return of the grind early tomorrow, but instead of dwelling on that, I'd rather look back on my week and enjoy the many successes that I manged in that time.
Work is work no matter what, but sometimes it can be downright
