Once again I find myself slacking when it comes to posting. Lots of work with immigration (thank fuck I just hired a lawyer to handle this instead of slogging through the bureaucratic bullshit myself) as well as other paperwork related things. In light of this, Elise and I decided to force ourselves to switch off from work by purchasing a Nintendo 3DS XL with Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire respectively.
It arrived yesterday and Elise has already devoted a solid 10 hours to the game. A worthy effort and I am super happy to see her enjoying something without it being related to work at all.
This past year has been our most productive and most stressful by far. If you are the sort of person who tends to tunnel vision you gotta find a hobby/outlet that will let you stop and breath. For us, catching digital monsters and battling people seems to be a worthy time sink.
In any case, life can’t be just about work.
In other news, this week I impressed my wife with my ice cream scooping skills.
She calls my technique “tunneling.” I think I turn it into an art form; it’s okay to be jealous.
(Ice Cream in question is Pralines & Cream from Baskin Robbins. Yum.)
Also notable was these two –
Took a peak under Elise’s mom’s dinning room table to see 2 cats befuddled as to why I was disturbing their sanctuary. I am very sorry Beau & Walker. I shall endeavor to schedule an appointment next time. Apologies for spoiling your nap.
Below – om nom nom. Salmon roe spicy soup from our current favourite Korean joint. Delicious and more or less healthy. Wasn’t as keen on the salmon roe soup as I was for the pork bone alternative, but definitely one of my faves regardless.
Also picked up a cold cut combo from our local Subway this week. Pretty sure the idiot who made my sandwich is drunk or blind. Or both.
How do you fuck up a sub… seriously.
I shan’t make any promises that this will be a regular feature on the blog, but when I myself being overwhelmed with work, but still wanting to publish something on Elise & Thomas I think this is a decent option.
