finally… an updated selfie!
not sure of the exact day… although w/dedicated perseverance could nail it (is the super-bowl-sunday laziness in me. i’m using that as an excuse. i stand corrected… it’s the everyday laziness in me). a great day nonetheless! i do remember this was the last pic jeff snapped out of hundreds… and, i also remember him (he reminded me of animal from lou grant) telling me, how much he loved this pic, said it resonated our effort and accomplishment… our culmination after two hours in front of the lens. truthfully, for years, i never was much a fan of it. now, seven-and-a-half years later… i’m warming up to it!
… saved the best for last! flying solo too. lots of work making it all come together; as the per usual run myself ragged routine. but GODDAMN… i’m worth it, so i did! parm regg, chianti riserva, olives, my best homemade bolognese (grain fed white veal + angus beef extra lean sirloin), rosemary focaccia, best italian noodles, etc. etc. – the whole 9 yards, the whole kit and caboodle, the whole shebang! y’all know me too well! oh, and even splashed on mr. burberry for the special day/eats… not only the food smells good folks!
… my apologies, table was cracked, so i nailed ‘er… shitty host, lol!
h n y … see ya in ’17 suckas!
i LOVE my new life (did y’all know that, lol?)!
a beautiful 11/6 day starting standard time.
but not close to the 11/9 lily day a decade and a half back!
was 20º, and for the 1 hour drive home, she made time stand still!
they don’t make ’em like that anymore. that day… and, THAT dog!
… oh, here’s the proof btw!
killer view… killer view to die for!
… (is a prime number btw) and I cannot wait till it hits zero! … ok, here goes; I’M MOVING BITCHES, and am chuffed as fuck! The cat was let outta bag for those in the know some time ago, and now y’all are officially included in dansnewsoftheday… I’m moving to Leslieville (many pics/blogs will follow too – promise)! Queen Street East Mofos! I’m gonna be an east-end hipster, lol! I keep calendar counting down the days, playing it all out in my mind, over and over… and over! Completely cognizant there’s still so much to do before the day arrives, but come October 1st, am looking (& leaping) forward to the countless, new neighbourhood experiences to enjoy… is my (soon to be) new life! Yep, chuffed as mofo fuck!
… perhaps a hop, skip (no jump – weez too old) for burgers @ the Brooklyn to celebrate (again), whaddya ya think Tiff K?… yer dime… well, maybe, we’ll see, lol!
… my le creuset says so! my oh-so-byoot-ah-ful-ova-flowin le creuset, says so! one of my fave meals ever, so versatile! today am KISS, and goin’ classic.. goin’ old school basic!
pics don’t even begin to do it justice! flew solo today too… tiff missed the chili boat! she was busy serving/eating baba ganoush eggs benny bunny… baby!
… can you spell/smell leftovers, y’all?
… Batman!! this place is truly #1 as advertised… look at all that crispy Guyanese chicken w/fried rice (shrimp)… and, the best part… all in, nine bucks nine bucks nine bucks!!
… is actually a dual blog post! on an unrelated side-note, today realized my two bitches [ok, ok, before ya throw a hissy fit… girls [best clarify otherwise one would flip her old-age (young-age, lol)… sickly too, lol] lid, lol… have arguably the two best birthdates of all 365 possible birthdates, AND both happen to fall in February!! please don’t make me tell ya, figure it out for yourselves… numbskulls!!
… oh yeah, my stuffed full of crispy chicken/shrimp fried rice $9 dinner!!
… my first time running since November 1st, and considering poor conditioning… killed it!! I see so many daily runners in this mild winter weather, luckily being able to continue running/training throughout the year (me, w/my job makes it next to impossible), and am SO jealous… yet, they’re still slow-poking it? What’s up w/that shit?!
Chuffed as fuck w/my x-mas run… 15 minutes for 3K is only 2 minutes-ish from my PB… and w/regular sessions 13:30 would be easily attainable day after day! I’m also happy as hell w/negative splits (lungs began burning 400m in, lol)!
best zodiac sign (ever, lol) is leaving us again till next year. and, much much too soon – went by so fucking fast! on a positive note; least we have 10 more days of July left. wanna give a big shout-out to all you cancer babies out there. personally know SO SO many, and always think of you all come summer. also, BIG shout-out to everyone who sent b’day wishes my way… thanks! peace&love!
