1. Tomorrow is the annual company holiday party. I’ve been told that many years ago, our parties were off the hook. Things have since gone downhill. The company holiday party is now held at the office, in broad daylight. Alcohol is still served, making this event all the more creepy. Last year, food was provided (each department was given a budget and asked to buy a dish with their allocated sum). This year, we were all asked to bring in an appetizer. This, apart from shinning a big light on our company’s dismal financial situation, is a frightening thing for all the vegans in the office: yours truly. From what I’ve heard, a lot of people are bringing in what could potentially be vegan appetizers, except for all the cheese. This is absolutely, 100% fine with me, but it got me thinking. Cheese has got to be one of the unhealthiest foods and yet, people can’t seem to eat anything without it, even people who work for a diet company which is supposed to promote a healthy lifestyle ! Crazy.
2. Speaking of bad food, Geoffrey and I tried ROK:BRGR, a new burger joint that just opened downtown. It’s right next to our old “date night” spot, which killed our “dinner + movie” tradition when it decided to do away with the one vegetarian option on their menu. So, we’re beyond excited to have found this new place which has an awesome veggie burger and a great selection of craft beers. Of course, rumor has it that the movie theater will be torn down soon which could kill our tradition again. Well, we’ll just have to enjoy it while it lasts. Like, a lot.
3. My feet have been hurting SO much after each run lately. I don’t know what it is, but I hope it’s not a show stopper because I’d really like a marathon PR in February. Gah !
4. Did I mention that Geoffrey and I are planning to go camping for Christmas ? Well, the weather might kill that plan. I love the outdoors, but I don’t think Geoffrey’s 150 pound body will be enough to keep me warm when it’s 20 degrees outside and I don’t want to freeze to death. So, we’ll see.
