I had some tea in my new mug I got for a dollar at the Salvation Army on the weekend. Jeff and I realised that when we separate from this house, we will have very few mugs, so I look forward to buying a lot of weird unmatching thrift store ones.

Jeff took me for dinner and drinks in Gastown to make up for Friday. Afterwards we wandered around sketchy alleys until it got too rainy to take photos. Then we went to Jericho Beach and played with flashlights and clam shells until we got too cold.
I went to dinner with my parents at Divino Wine Bar on Commercial Drive. We had SO MUCH CHEESE because we ordered the platter of three, but they brought us the wrong one so then we got a free cheese! Which is the best kind, obviously.
Also, the plate you see is made of a flattened wine bottle.

I bought a bottle of this Anchor Christmas beer while I was in Portland, and it was super delicious, so I was pleased to happen upon a case of it in the Heights liquor store today when Jesse and I stopped in there. He bought it for me because friends like to do nice things for each other sometimes.
This purse broke about a year ago. I bought it at a thrift store for $10; I liked the bird design the previous owner drew on with a Sharpie. I've held on to it this long hoping I could find something to do with it even though I can't use it, but I think I have to throw it out.

This was supposed to be a cookoff entry but my ingredients were going to die so I had to use them. It's potato-leek soup with fresh rosemary - this is before I blenderized it. I thought it had too much rosemary; Jeff and Jesse thought it had not enough.

I still think something is up with the autofocus, but at least through fucking around with aperture/F-stop/exposure, I can still manage photos.
Here is Jeff on the one-year anniversary of this blog. I didn't do as well as I hoped in that year, but at least I haven't given up entirely. Here's to another year with hopefully more successes.

New Year's Eve. This one was pretty bad, but the day after this I tried to take photos and they were ALL out of focus no matter what I did. Then I cried. Jeff is taking the camera to the shop to be looked at soon.
Thus, I do not yet have anything from 2010 to post.
