Today was splendid…
Got to sleep in, enjoy some good coffee and good reading. Woke up to a surprise bday gift on my kitchen counter! Cleaned the house. Worked on the (new) bike. Played classic JudgeDredd for the SegaGenesis! Friends came down, we grilled some chicken on the barbee, there were two cakes. A great combo of root/beer, hilarious viral videos, and MadMen. And getting to relive my love for MetalGearSolid original-version for the PS1.
Sometimes it’s like “man life is tough” and other times it’s like “man, I’m glad I have great friends”.
*phew* okay, here we go…
Friday: We hosted a big party for local immigrant services, to provide a way of showing people in our community there are safe, fun, open, and embracing places for newcomers to checkout. Jonny’s Java donated coffee, and CO-OP donated a TON of food! Pathway Church sent over 2 speakers and a hospitality team, and The Bunker hired a bunch of entertainers (including Winnipeg’s hiphop group The Lytics!) Seriously, it was an amazing display of love and genuine fun! Thanks to everyone that got involved and helped pack the place out…and to those that I went to for help that laughed at me and called it a “dumb” idea……you missed out.
Saturday: After a solid 3hrs of sleep I got to setup for a wedding (that I also got to MC!) Both the bride and groom have been a part of our little ministry family for several years now…so yeah…I was busting with joy!
Sunday: After an amazing sermon at Church I got to hangout and eat brunch with some family from Australia! My cousin, whom I haven’t seen in 22yrs, and her daughter (my 2nd…or 3rd cousin???) who I’ve never met :) THEN I hopped in the car and watched my roommate shred Winnipeg in his new band Essentials…also awesome faces that I like hugging!
There ya go, grand weekend was had.
I just spent my evening drinking slurpees, eating icecream, and watching Cabin In The Woods and Django Unchained with Scott…
Everything else is irrelevant.
Today was perfect…
6AM: wake up, workout, breakfast
9AM: reading, blogging, videogames
NOON: small lunch, work, meeting
4PM: editing, updating, burgers
7PM: work, catching up, cleaning up
9PM: friends, walking dead, video games
I wasn’t inspired to post much today, but I made random plans with friends for the rest of the week :)
Woke up early, met a friend for coffee, was inspired by Church…morning.
Had friend over, made brunch, played Diablo3, bought SuperMetroid on the WiiMarketplace…afternoon.
Rented the ice skating arena, made hot cocoa, watched kids play hockey, had dudes over for pizza and video games…evening.
PS: All I know about the Oscars is whatever Buzzfeed is blogging…and not even that can make it legit.
