Yesterday was Thursday!
Tomorrow is Saturday!
And Sunday comes afterwards!
(Lyrics courtesy of a strong contender for The Worst Song Of All Time:
I’m so happy about today’s events (more on that later) that I no longer feel depressed by the very existence of this song. I do apologise to the rest of you, though, especially if you were previously unaware of the phenomenon that is Rebecca Black.)
I’m finally starting to get over this horrible cold, just as we hit some sunny days and the cherry blossom started to come out. Things are looking up, in Vancouver as well as in Ottawa – and to celebrate the fact that for the first time in ages I felt like doing something other than sitting motionless on the sofa, we went out for a pre-weekend dinner last night. Hey, it’s all for charidee, mate – you gotta do your part!
I ordered sliced duck breast with spaghetti squash, spinach, and fig jus, and after enjoying a fine local beer, I decided to try the “sloe” gin fizz. We don’t have sloes here, so they used Saskatoon berries instead, which is just fine by me. What I hadn’t spotted from the menu was that all cocktails arrive “deconstructed, Bento-box style”:
Luckily, the instructions were pretty straightforward,
and the next stage was pretty obvious!
Yay, weekend! I hope you all have a good one!
