Didn't expect it to be quite so busy (really? Why not?) but I'm up in the Alix Goolden nosebleeds for Bill and Joel Plaskett tonight. Thankfully not really a bad seat in the house here! Looking forward to finally hearing Joel live! Pretty good way to celebrate my final day of work, even if I am sitting on these hard benches alone.

Out for an afternoon bike ride and I ended up in the middle of a @universityofvictoria / @ubcrowing race! Go #Vikes! #rowing #8srowing

Great art and awesome figures in the game Jacob introduced to us tonight. Sadly, my performance wasn't as awesome. Tied for last... #boardgames

New #curling record: three hard falls in one game. Saved my head though... #hurriedtoohard #slipperyasice

First time trying #Takoyaki (a popular #Japanesefood #streetfood dish: wheat flour-based batter filled with pieces of octopus and possibly some tempura) at Nobu Japanese Tapas last night. Can you see it waving at me?! (Btw, I'd give it four stars, but was surprised how uncooked-seeming the batter was. Is it supposed to be like that on the inside?) #yyjeats

I hate to be on of THOSE people, but some shots from last night's Victoria Foodies Group trip to Nobu Japanese Tapas. Good food and great presentation, amazing variety of choice, but slightly rushed meal by the servers who didn't seem to want a big group. Highlights were definitely the pork belly (bottom right, best I've ever had) and the Lucky Strike Roll (middle and top left: smoked salmon, seared tuna, spicy tuna, prawn tempura, avocado, fish eggs). But, have to say that the sushi just doesn't quite top Sen Zushi in my books. Really good, don't get me wrong, but the imitation crab in the rainbow roll made it feel not quite as fresh. Still, highly recommend this place and give it 4.2/5 ⭐️ #yyjfood #yyjeats #sushi #japanesefood #tapas #nobu

Two weeks of sickness and a Saturday full of sugary desserts has me contemplating the value of oxygen by the middle of the second end. #selfcontained #curldonthurl #curling #sweep (CC @hashtagcopywriting)

You know, if you're not driving in it, it's actually quite nice out! #yyjsnow @royalbcmuseum

Awe, Victoria, you're trying! #snow #citybike #yyj

It's snowing out and blowing a gale, my house is warm, and I'm perfectly fine staying in to relax. What better time to go out and curl? #curling #Canadian #Canada150 #hurryhard #misseditbythatmuch

Thinking time.
