Last week, I made a plan to update this blog twice–guess that didn’t work! Lately I have been feeling like I have nothing to say, but that’s kind of defeatist.
Today, Greg and I are off on an odyssey of bureaucracy. We’ve got to get him fingerprinted (twice), get some forms notarized and take them downtown to a tax office, and get some notarized papers showing we share a bank account. Some of it is for his Canadian immigration process (which feels like it will never be over) and some is so we can get a tax return, fingers crossed!
Last week was kind of awesome. My friend Lindsay was visiting and I spent the day with her on Thursday. It was the best. I felt like I could be myself around her and it was so relieving. I don’t always feel like I can be myself around people lately and it is kind of a stupid teenage thing that I am trying to figure out how to lose. But, my visit with Linds was great because it was the perfect California eternal-summer day. We ate burritos overlooking the ocean, laid on the sand and got sunburned, drove around with the windows open drinking ice tea, cooked a vegan supper and ate (r) ice cream. It was the perfect girly catch-up day with a friend.
Another thing keeping me off the internet last week was Fable II. We have wanted to buy it since we got an Xbox 360 (like 6 months ago) and we finally got it last weekend. It’s SO GOOD. It’s pretty similar to WoW, but you don’t need a guild of people to complete quests with you. I love it. I think it’s an amazing game so far, I just hope it’s long. I’d hate to get this into it and find out that it was a super-short game!!
Oh, and before I’m off: we made sushi at home last night. It was pretty fun and it was nice to make sushi again. I used to work as a sushi chef for a bit while I was in Calgary, and since I stopped working there I have only done it a couple times. This was my first attempt.
