"Eat Well, Stay Fit, Die Anyway"

Round-Up Ain’t Just for Poison Ivy

Let’s start the weekend round-up on Friday night where our upstairs neighbours treated us to awesome steaks from the St. Lawrence Market.  We ate a great meal on the patio (moving in once it got chilly later in the evening) and hung out for a few hours.  We even walked the dog to nearby parking lot as an excuse to spy on a movie shoot.

Saturday morning came early, thanks to our canine guest, who apparently thinks that 5am on a Saturday is playtime.  After a lot of yelling, cursing and barking on the part of various tenants of our house, we eventually got up and started a day of errands that included a car wash, buying garden stuff at Canadian Tire, and starting the process of gutting our backyard to include some basic landscaping.

On Saturday night, a few of us braved the TTCless streets (in our cars, of course) to go and see Forgetting Sarah Marshall.  If you’re thinking about seeing it, you should probably ask yourself a few questions:

  1. Did you like “The 40 Year-Old Virgin” and “Knocked Up”?  ‘Cause this is basically the same movie
  2. Can you handle infrequent full-frontal male nudity?
  3. Do you like to laugh?

If you answered yes to all of those questions, then you’ll get your money’s worth out of this movie.  Keep your ears peeled for the funniest line of the movie which is about Ghandi… and puppets.

Sunday was church, followed by helping the former tenants of Pembroke Castle move to The Shuter Shack (their new house).  It was sad seeing the Castle empty out again, but the guys’ new digs are pretty awesome and I’m looking forward to invites for BBQs and some hot and heavy Wii action (is that an unfortunate sentence?).

We finished off our weekend by enjoying some burgers on the patio and watching some TV like old people.  It was a pretty great weekend, all things considered.  Now, I’m back into the swing of the work week as angry as ever with the TTC and looking forward to getting some herbs to plant in the window boxes on our deck.
