We actually had an adult weekend of sorts at the UrbanDaddy household.
Saturday morning provided us with an early morning (9am) visitor who brought me my blackberry.
Saturday afternoon we went to some potential new friends for a pumpkin carving event for the kiddies. A ton of fun. Nice people there. Carved us a pumpkin, ate some pizza. I took every ones pumpkin seeds and roasted them with some kosher salt and cayenne pepper. They were yummy!!
Saturday night went out for dinner with 4 other couples from the baby-group to one of my favourite places – Parmigiano – on Yonge Street, just north of Lawrence… YUM. Had a great time, great conversation… A fun, fun day.
Sunday dinner at a Chinese buffet is always fun watching the baby eat 5 x his money’s worth… Man can that kid eat.
Monday – back to the grind.
Some sports notes:
Boston Red Sox win the world series – looks like it’ll be tough for the Jays to make any headway in that division in the near future.
The day the Sox win, some punk assed bitch (a very talented one), named Alex Rodrigues (A-Rod) opted out of his $72 million dollar contract to become a free agent.. . He’s hoping to get $300 million over 10 years… He’s already 32… Yikes. Couldn’t he have waited one more day?
I guess A-Rod can join manager Joe Torre in LA…
Raptors open the season soon and waived forward Luke Jackson in the process. Keeping some 27yr old rookie named something Moon. Good luck kid… and Go Raps!!!
I did it!
Completed my presentation for my Business Strategy class today – worked on it from basically 8am – 4pm. Didn’t even stop for lunch, not that I would have enjoyed it since I have these 2 stupid canker sores which make just about everything to do with eating, smiling or talking difficult.
Came home, BBQ’d, got the kids to bed (or so I thought) and then signed into my class. My presentation was right off the bat and my 20 minute presentation turned out to be the entire hour and 15 minute class! Awesome. I think it was well received. I tried not to sound monotone while going over my PowerPoint, so I added some additional comments, a few examples and room to ramble, and boy did I ramble. There were loads of questions from the class. I enjoyed the process.
Now I realized how much work I need to catch up on.
While presenting, my Corporate Finance class were sending, like 1000 emails back and forth regarding the case study, and finally submitted it! Whew.
Then while cleaning up the dishes I got to watch Candice Michelle fall from the top rope during her 2 out of 3 falls match on RAW, and land right on her left shoulder and head. She left on a stretcher… I know it’s not real, but this is live TV and boy, she almost killed herself.
Went upstairs to prep for shower before bed and found UM and Happy Boy in bed… our bed. Cuties! Did some more household cleaning, going to shower, then off to bed before midnight hopefully (in the Happy Boy’s bed. lol).
More work tomorrow on Business Strategy, then Finance class tomorrow night, a business meeting Wednesday night and some work “town hall” meeting Thursday.
Whew. I can’t wait to sleep and swallow.
It’s 3-2 Red Sox in the 7th inning. Winner faces the Colorado Rockies in the World Series. Who am I voting for?!?
I loved watching the Chicago BlackHawks play! Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews… Some great young talent. A fun team to watch.
The National Lacrosse League cancelled the season a few days ago. Stupid players… Lose everything. Has no one learned from MLB???
Leafs??? Still suck. No one to score, no one to keep the puck out. A sad team, indeed.
A car almost ran me over this morning and the turnstile at the TTC station rejected my token but as I was zipping through it didn’t move and I slammed my head into the glass. Embarrassed, with people behind me gawking (and I’m sure a few were snickering) I put the token back in, grunted at the turnstile, then proceeded to slowly go through.
My head hurts. Can I sue the TTC?
So I email this to my wife, and this is what she responds:
“Oh, are you going to sue the TTC based on stupidity? I can see you now in front of the judge. Your honour, I smashed my face into the turnstile because my Ipod was too loud and I didn’t hear either the gate click open or the token drop back into the tray”
I could pull it off!
