And a good evening to you from the frozen tundra of Ottawa, where the current temperature is a balmy -11 Celsius. To quote Dave Schumacher - "Hearty people...and there's NO CRIME!"
So last night was an absolute blast. After a great (and very busy) day at work, we rolled over to a great joint called Moxie's, where I was treated to a FABULOUS in-house micro-brew (called, simply enough, Amber). I actually threw back 3 of those along with a Malbec because, as the Posh Puma would say, there's no such thing as a bad Malbec. Also, I had a GREAT dish - chicken oscar with jumbo shrimps - who can argue with that (other than my skeletal frame for having to carry the excess baggage)? If nothing else, going was worth watching Megs take down another Mega-Caesar (the Canadian equivalent of our Bloody Mary).
Also, Jenny was treated to another Canada first for her - Tim Horton's coffee! Team Maple Leaf - don't get upset, but she definitely preferred Starbucks to Timmy's. I know, I know...but in her defense - she's a Florida girl braving the cold - that's got to count for something!
We spent the evening in the hotel bar, where I tried a new beer (local to Ottawa) - the Sergeant Major (VEEEEEERY nice). I also tried some Ontario wine, which I was quite impressed with! What I was NOT impressed with was TCU. Talk about WEAK. But mad props to the MVP from Boise State for the following quote:
Reporter: "You guys are only the 2nd team in history to finish 14-0. Do you guys think you are the best team in the country?"
Dude who won the award: "Um, no - probably not. But hey - it's still a great season." Full marks, brother.
Today was a BARNBURNER at work, but the good news is that it's ALL IN! Tomorrow is GO LIVE - YEAH, BABY!!!!!! And speaking of, presenting..............TEAM MAPLE LEAF!!!
That's all the news that's fit to print. Chat tomorrow!
