Christmas Eve was spent watching Futurama and eating chili with Steph while we waited for Jeff to get home from work. This is the pile of presents and crap waiting by the door to come with us. My family went to 11pm mass so we arrived at their place before they did. Then we watched (read: sat in front of while talking loudly) How the Grinch Stole Christmas and went to bed.

Friends & Family Night at Hell Pizza (aka Jeff's new and more awesome place of employment), which doubled as the staff training day. Free pizza and beer! Everything was extremely tasty (chicken, cranberry and camembert pizza?! YES) and everyone working seemed to be having a pretty great time. This gargoyle was perched menacingly atop the beverage fridge.
Sarah and Chase took us to this amazing restaurant called Andina's, a Peruvian fusion joint where everything was interesting and delicious. This is a goat cheese flan, and that little flower is made out of strawberry sauce and chocolate.

These happy paper fellows were set up in the Anthropologie on Couch St, a store where I loved pretty much everything and could afford pretty much nothing. Mom bought me two shirts that were on sale as a present though :)

Jeff and I went out to Maple Ridge so my parents could take me out for birthday dinner. Afterwards we sat at the kitchen table drinking pinot noir and talking. Alice was halfway through this collage at 1am when we left, and she started at 8pm.

It was Angelique's birthday and I forgot my camera because I had errands to run beforehand and didn't realise I had no time to go home for it until it was TOO LATE. It was obviously raining a super lot and I walked there (Clark & 7th) from Hastings and Nanaimo, carrying a bag full of Christmas sweaters, booze, and party snacks for most of it.
Also I forgot to take a photo on Friday because I fail. Jesse and Angela and I had dinner at Yianni's in New West, where we ate various Greek dips and later, ekmek. It was tasty.

Hello, my name is Jen, and I like to put on strange outfits and then photograph myself in them.
Also tonight I reconnected with my old bandmate Roland, which was awesome. He lives in an sweet loft in Gastown, where we drank PBR and waxed philosophical.

I went with Dennis to the Astoria for the Prohab Helmet Society's calendar release party. Music was decent, drinks were cheap, and there were CUTE GIRLS EVERYWHERE. I bought a calendar of course, because it combines two things I love - bikes and lovely ladies!

Jeff and I had an aquarium date because we both had the day off work. It was super fun even though there were a million children everywhere. Later we came home and made lasagna for Jesse's birthday and hung out with some other people.
I took a bunch of photos I liked on this day, so feel free to check out my aquarium album here.
I hung out at Lucas's for a bit after work, and then when he started falling asleep Jeff picked me up and we had celebratory dessert and booze at Sweet Revenge on Main, because Jeff got a new job which is way more awesome than his old job. :D
I am posting this out of order because I did not do anything good on this day, and the day this was taken I did a whole bunch of stuff, but I want you guys to all be able to lol at this. I could probably make a whole separate blog just of things we do with our fridge magnets.

I went with Christine to the art event Hot One Inch Action. In case you are too lazy to read the website, basically 50 artists have their work printed on buttons, and you go and buy a bag of 5 (or two bags, or whatever) and then spend the night trading them with people to get what you want. It was insanely fun.
