Foot Of My Life

So Sharon and I went on a date today. Ate at a Mexican Taco Bar in Kensington Market (tres yummy), followed by the 3rd installment of a play we've been watching called "Inch of Your Life". It was and still is a very funny play. It's almost like Will and Grace on stage (yes, there are gay jokes all over the place).
It wasn't as funny as, say, the first two parts, but it was still good. I think what was missing was my friend Andrew (who starred in the first two, but unable to star in the third one). Oh, and also, the ending left off with another "To Be Continued..." Dammit. Thus the title of this post

14th Time To Say "It's That Time Again"

The Raptors are back for season 14. It seems they have a new team, and actually won a convincing game.
I'm excited, but let's check back in after game 43 to see how I feel.
One plus from watching the game today was getting invigorated to play ball myself.
Again, let's check back after I play my 43rd game to see how I feel.
* * *
Went to see my old massage therapist Leslie, who know works at a men's dress shirt manufacturer (they are having a liquidation sale, which I bought some stuffs). She was showing me the shirts, and I think some of the workers there thought I was her boyfriend. What can I say, I'm suave?
(Ever since reading the book "The Game", all of a sudden I think I'm a playa.

I didn't forget I'm married)

Par-tay! On A Mon-day!

Considering my cousin Bobby and his wife Ning had their wedding reception on a Tuesday (it was an auspcious day in the Chinese calendar), it really shouldn't have come as a surprise that their baby Calvin's 100th Day of Birth Celebration came on a Monday.
Always fun to see family. Even funner to overeat. Sort of. Not really.
Tito George even wore the "#1 Lolo" shirt we made for him and gave him on his birthday a few months ago

After Socialing, What Did We Learn?

I have a long, long, long way to go to being even half-decent.
Gotta practice like least learn the basics and fundamentals
* * *
Said it before, said it again, will continue saying: strip clubs are just not my thing. Went to one today for a bachelor party, and was exactly what I thought: waste of money and time. I guess it floats the boat of some people, but you know it's not for me when I end up watch UFC (and I don't even watch UFC!) instead of watching the nekked girl gyrating on stage. On top of that, we were in the "VIP area", and it was just, well, a sausagefest. Blah, whateves.

I will say though, that watching a guy have actual sex in one of those booths was quite a surprise. But those booths had UV lights and the seats lit up like fireworks, so maybe it wasn't too much a surprise

Another Stressful Week Gone By

I sometimes become worried that life is passing by too quickly, and during the brief time I actually realize it, I was more or less stressed out (at least at work). I can sort of see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it doesn't help when the tunnel is 5 km. long and I have one leg cemented into the ground and the other really cramping (how's that for a dramatic analogy?). And since when did my feelings get so affected by work of all things?
I hope things get easier in the next few weeks...just gotta put my head down and plow through the work without (or at the very least very little) complaint

The Other Football

So my workmates and I played some football after work today in the freezing cold.
Good times! I even scored the winning touchdown.
The best part? I got to "two-hand touch" the girls at my work, and it was perfectly okay. Score!

Friggin' Crap Yo

So when you give an absolutely brutal giveaway to the opposing team for the eventual winner, it's all of a sudden clear why people get so passionate about futball.
(If you haven't guessed, I did that today and we eventually lost 3-1, after leading 1-0)
I feel like crap.
On the brightside, I don't live in South America. I would've prolly been killed by now (that's not a stereotype at all).
At least something did make me laugh at the game today: Andrea (maybe 31 years old) was there watching the game, and one of my teammates kid (maybe 9 years old) kept asking her if I was her husband and he was acting jealous, like the lovesick puppy he was. It was quite amusing, really. Which just proves: I'm a threat! Yeeeeeeeee...boi!

Babies Babies Galore!

So both Kat and Ruthie came in today with Elizabeth and Shekinah. Such awesome and beautiful kids!
I even fed and burped Elizabeth. And then I realized that when the bottle was leaking a bit, I had Kathie's boob-juice on my hands. I, ummm...never thought I would have a co-worker's bodily fluids on me before.
I also really, really wish Kiri has one soon. God willing.
I can't get a dog. And then a child. At least, I have to trick Sharon into having one. Time to get scheming

R.I.P. Sheila

Sucks...found out the sweet lady that lives beside us just passed away suddenly (in the sense that she was going through chemo and all signs pointed towards a recovery).
Her and Murray just celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary last week.
Kinda puts things into perspective and makes you realize how short life is

Well, at least that's what it feels like doing this bathroom renovation.
It's getting there. Unfortunately, "there" seems to be so far it away it would take forever to get there. Wait, I think I just said that...

Another Stressful/Busy Week Gone

Sigh...when will the insanity end?
(I have an idea, although it would involve firing old people and hiring new, harder-working people)
* * *
Visited Che and Reccie and Elmer and the kids today for the first time in a while. Sometimes hanging out with family is just as fun as having a social life. Hmmmm...

I May Be A Minority...

...but I ain't no Conservative.
Good news: Conservatives only won a minority, and looks like my Liberal vote made a difference (at least in my riding).
Bad news: Harbush is still the PM. Here comes Canada, hell!

One Year Ago Today...

...I made the best decision of my life.
I love you's looking to at least seven more years

Giving Thanks...

...for narrowly avoiding clogged arteries.
Although this Thanksgiving Weekend is not over yet, so I'm not in the clear just yet.
And what says Thanksgiving better than...Peking Duck? Well, according to my family it'll do just fine. skin

Thanksgiving At The Marquez-Lobo Residence

Slash Welcome Back To Ontario Team Beevy Celebration. Should be an interesting experience. That is, guests are coming in 2 hours, and I'm on the computer. Hmmmm...maybe I should start cooking

Wednesday, October 08, 2008


So I had some jawbreakers today for the first time in years. (Why? Because it was there as a "treat" at my meeting).
It left my tounge feeling coated and all sorts of nasty for the rest of the day. I think it will be years again before I forget and have another one (or two).
* * *
It's decision time again. Another position came up at work that I think my Supervisor and Manager is trying to get me to apply for.
I'd like to go for it because it would be a pay raise.
I'm hesitant because I don't like the actual work involved and the people involved.
Then I think about the economy and how I would like to maintain a certain lifestyle (Great Dane). So I went from an 80/20 no/yes ratio to 50/50 and now it seems like it's 92/8.
In no way, shape or form am I a shoo-in for the position, but I would like to think I have a good shot. I just better not screw up in the interview. But first things first...gotta print off the resume and be sure I actually 100/0 want to apply...

Nothing Makes A Handyman More Deflated...

...than screwing up. And having to do twice the work.
But luckily I'm not a handyman, and screwing up is always part of the entire equation.
Damn bathroom fan!

That Was A Long Week

On top of starting the soccer season, playing basketball every morning this week after taking a week off being sick (in essence killing me physically), working crazy hours topped off with an ememrgency overtime shift today (first time I've been in the field for over a year; don't eat Iceburg Lettuce if it comes from Michigan!)... I so tired.
I think I need at least 53 hours off. Straight. That way I can concentrate on the renovations at hand

Don't Know Much Politricks...

...but screw you Harper, you wannabe Bush.
I think I'm going Orange
