Photo taken circa 1973(?) and probably taken by my mom back in the day.
PHEW! I have not been home before 9:30 pm all week long. Tonight I got home from work around 10:15. I have a few more late work nights coming up the following weeks. This happens occasionally. Even though I don’t start work until 10 in the morning, it feels like a long day. It reminded me that my dad used to do these super long work days several times a week when I was little and we lived in Calgary. But he started work way earlier than I do. How he did that for years on end, I’ll never know. And this explains why there are so many photos in my photo album USB stick with him sleeping on it.
We at dinner tonight at 10:45 pm. Fancy! Just like they do in Europe.
Next up? Sleepy time. I should have fun dreams. I made omelets for dinner tonight and all that cheese should produce plenty of weird dreams if I’m lucky.
It was a dark and stormy night, alright.
Please note: the whole reason why I asked Mike to take my picture was to show off my new haircut. But you can’t really see it at all. But trust me, I had more than an inch chopped off my hair. It feels much lighter.
Once home, I tried out a recipe for “bread” made from pea flour. I picked this flour up at a local fruit & veggie market. I assumed it was chickpea flour, but I may have been incorrect. This flour had a very beany smell and flavour. I added the ingredients together (just water and olive oil, salt and pepper – very simple and super easy) and baked it up in a cast iron skillet.

If’ you’ve not see the LEGO movie yet, you’ve got to go see it. It’s silly and funny and light hearted. I also felt compelled to pick up some minifigs from the show. The price is right for these little guys and who doesn’t want a LEGO dude with no pants on! NO PANTS! Hahaha. And just look at that hair! Pompadour. FANCY.
I picked a few of these guys up in the kid’s section of Chapters. The cashier that rang me up could tell me by feeling each package what character was in each blind bag. Just in case you’re not familiar with this – these toys are packed in foil bags and you can’t see which character is inside, so it’s a surprise. Also, kind of a cash grab. But at $3.50 each, I’m happy to participate.
This photo is no LEGOgrapher photo, that’s for sure. But if I could use any excuse to explain my lackluster photo today, I’d have to say that I have been distracted by the current Canucks’ events. Luongo is no longer a Canuck. As of this afternoon, he was traded to Florida. FLORIDA! I guess it really wasn’t working out for him here, even after 8 years of trying. DARN. And now there’s rumours of Kelser being traded to Sidney Crosby’s team. I guess this is a rebuild year for the Canucks coming up.
Honey? Where’s my pants? indeed.
Monday nights are late nights for me – I usually stay downtown to meet up with some friends until about 8:30. After that, it’s back home on the skytrain and bus. This is my final destination – Newton Exchange.
They’ve done some upgrades to this bus stop and as you can see, it’s very well lit for some night time photos.
