Weekend Wonderland

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

They say living in the Pacific Northwest makes you more active. I thought they meant mountain climbing and hiking, but perhaps it’s more than that. When I look back at my weekend and compare that to how we would spend a weekend five years ago, it definitely qualifies as more active. They say correlation is not causation, but I know living in a Pacific Northwest city is definitely for me. Here’s what I accomplished this weekend:

  • Drove to the north side of the city for a curling open house… which was AWESOME
  • Rode the bus downtown to watch Cloud Atlas with a cinephile Meetup group
  • Two Asian themed lunchesĀ  – A banh mi and Vietnamese coffee; Chinese roast pork and roast duck
  • House chores – Vacuumed carpet/couch, washed cat’s blankets, cleaned litter boxes, washed dishes, scrubbed toilets
  • Restocking of goods – grocery store and pet store
  • Cooked a Sunday gravy (I cook a big pot meal every Sunday so I have dinner all week)
  • Watched the F1 race, the Cowboys/Falcons game and 3-4 episodes of Breaking Bad

…and all of it in about 28 hours of being awake. It’s certainly not the most mind blowing weekend, but something I’m proud of considering it would have been much easier to sit in the house all weekend doing nothing. Of course I spent the entire time thinking how great it would be doing it all with Melissa; I’m sure you won’t hold it against me. I look forward to when she’s back and we get to spend our first real Christmas in Seattle.

The Superbowl

Monday, February 4th, 2008

I’m not going to spend a lot of time talking about it. I just want to say that in the end, I’m glad the Giants won. I wasn’t sure who I was rooting for the week before the game but finally realized I didn’t want the smug nature of the Patriots to be rewarded and I wanted to be able to say the Cowboys lost to the Superbowl Champs. The Giants defense got them to the Superbowl and ultimately won it for them, Eli just made it more feasible by minimizing mistakes. It’ll be interesting to see how Steve Spagnuolo does as the Redskins new head coach… ’cause that’s where he’s gonna end up.

In other news, I took the under 54, Giants plus 7 at the half and hit a consolation prize in the office pool. Yay football (for now)!

Hitler: Cowboys Fan

If you haven’t seen this adaptation of the original XBox commercial, you need to. He says exactly what I’ve been thinking and does so in hilarious fashion.

edit: It actually turns out that it wasn’t an XBox commercial, but rather a viral video about XBL that used a clip from the movie Downfall.
