After dropping $1000 on the most expensive dinner they had, I think we’re finally off that Lobster Fishman Clubhouse bandwagon.

And yes…it included some deliciously cruel real shark fin soup but, aside from that, the 9 of us still couldn’t conquer that food mountain.

Oh well, leftovers city/on to the next one/never again.

Normally, the only kind of dancing that I really do is of the drunk kind - where at least you think that you’re killin’ it - but when you’re supposed to be doing a synchronized group dance, you better step up to the streets!

I love it when a plan comes together and boy did my buddy’s elaborate proposal plan come together. I don’t know how long he was actually inceptioning it planning it for, but I can only imagine what must have been going through his head that day. A lot.

At least for the dance portion, it took us about a month to learn the moves from the choreographer…plus a whole bunch of sweaty flailing around practicing in the secrecy of my basement. Someone in the crowd did use my GoPro to film it and for the most part we look pretty good, but we’ll have to wait on the professional video replay for the final verdict, lol. And yes, that is a boom mike.

Anyway, we pulled it off, nobody tripped and she said yes. What a crazy and super exciting day it must have been for the both of them. For real.

What else can I say? You two look great!

Chasing the dream…
It’s like that perfect powder day - you never know when it’s going to hit. You look at the weather, you look at the historic snowfall, and then you have a good hard look at that vacation calendar. You book it and then pray.
Sometimes you get it, sometimes you don’t. That’s what keeps you going and it’s totally worth it.

Well one of them anyway, lol.

As it turns out, the number of fucks you give is inversely proportional to your age.

What’s up all you good looking people?

Blah, blah, blah, I’ve been on that proverbial grind. That’s all and it’s been keeping me very busy.

I “talked” my way into a badass cell phone plan, I paid off my car, I got a new life insurance policy, I got a promotion, I (single handedly) chose all the features & finishes for my house (I’ll probably regret that later), and I’m just about to hit prestige 1 in Titanfall.

Gettin’ fat and doin’ work. That’s me.

I’ll tell you one thing though: on the surface 30 seems like a pretty harmless number, but don’t let it fool you - it’s got teeth. “30 is the new 20”, said me never. Whatever. My 20s were awesome.

It felt like it was time to make a move so I made a move. And so far…shit is projected to be awesome.

That’s that then. Let’s let future Justin worry about it.

In other news, spring is coming and warm weather brings a whole new story. Don’t get me wrong, skiing is my jam but damn, you can do a lot more crap when it’s warm outside.

Since Mission: save as much as you can for that downpayment is in full effect, so I don’t think that I’ll be going on any exotic vacations any time soon. Tent accommodations will have to do.

I can’t wait to go camping this year.

Ok, so what’s the deal with the photos? you might ask (probably not).

Well…It’s pretty much my (soon to be) stomping grounds. I’m basically trading one park for another, but I’ll have to admit that it looks pretty good. Relaxing on that big old hill at Erindale Park was just great, so let’s hope Oakville has something similar to offer.

Change is never easy - life’s simple when things are just the same - but if you stand still for too long then you’ll get left behind. Boom.

Alright, cabbage. See you in a couple days/please don’t grow botulism.

Designer: Interesting choices, haven’t had too many people go with the avocado cabinet finish…

Me: Whatever. I do what I want.

Ok, it might not have gone down exactly like that but let’s just hope that my choices don’t turn out buck fugly. Impossible!

Well curling was way more fun/sweaty than I ever expected…and I was actually pretty good at it…and by good I mean that I didn’t fall on my ass.

What can I say? Life has gotten pretty intense as of lately so I haven’t been doing much of anything, especially blogging. All I can say is that the next checkpoint is in sight but the finish line is still out of sight.

I’m definitely getting old.

YYC to YXC: Smallest plane I’ve ever been on…and actually the smallest plane in Air Canada’s fleet. No wonder our luggage didn’t make it…

Not much to say lately except that I’ve been gettin’ fat on the grind. Changes are coming. Big changes.

I’m pretty happy that I put together this video in a somewhat reasonable amount of time, otherwise it would have gotten lost in the nether like Revelstoke, Kicking Horse and Jay Peak 2011, lol.

Another video blocked on mobile due to copyright…heh.

Adding to the collection. It’s fair to say that 99% of my work tops are from Banana Republic…heh.

Still here, still alive.

So, I kind of screwed myself by going on vacation right in the middle of some pretty critical work timelines…but it was totally worth it.

So much shit going on right now. Crunch time.
