Scrabble and holiday prep
Life on the road is as crazy as it sounds – moving from city to city every couple of days - but there are a few good things about it.
For one, we go to a lot of cities with great shopping, which can be really helpful around the holidays.
And two, I have a pretty intense Scrabble battle every road trip with Aaron Rome. We’re not the best, but our series is pretty even. I’ve been practicing so we’ll see what happens next trip.
Apparently the word is out that I’m a Scrabble fan and I’ve actually had a few challengers. As of right now, I don’t have the time to take anyone up on their challenges, but after the new year, I’ll probably play a game with passittobulis, one of the bloggers that has taken it as far as to make shirts that are pretty sweet. Maybe we can sell some of those shirts and donate the proceeds to Canuck Place Hospice.
Since I last wrote, I celebrated my 27th birthday. I’m not that big into birthday celebrations, but my cousin, Steve, threw me a small surprise party and I got some interesting gifts. But for the most part, I just relaxed at home and took it easy.
The Riders were in the Grey Cup for the second straight year against the Alouettes and it was too bad that they couldn’t pull off a win this year. A few of us got together to watch the game, and unfortunately, Burrows had bragging rights for the day.
Emily and I are busy prepping our apartment for the holidays. We are hosting both sides of our families here in Vancouver, so we want to make it special.
We cut down a tree at the H & M Christmas Tree Farm in Richmond which was great. They set us up with some hot cider and a saw and we picked out a beautiful Douglas fir.
Happy Holidays everyone and enjoy the games!
