Asparagus seedlings. Sadly, the other seeds I planted have not been nearly as responsive.

I went to meet a friend from out of town for beers at the Alibi Room. He let me know he was going to be late, so I took spent a bit of time in Portside Park taking photos. He couldn't stay long, so afterwards I met up with Steph and we had more beer and some food at the Mill where we watched the game and visited with Jeff a little while he worked.
A few more photos from this day here.

Salt specials
Jeff and I watched part of the game at Pivo while drinking beer and eating mojito fries (garlic, mint and lime). We then went over to Salt Tasting Room to meet his friend Hiran and his lady friend Allie. Incredible service, delicious local foods & wines.

Jeff and I went to Maple Ridge to celebrate Mom & Maddie's birthday. We had dinner at the Buffalo Club, where Mom forced me to take a photo of Maddie's gift wrapping before she opened it. Afterwards we went back to the house to eat the cupcakes we brought from Cassia.

I found this perfectly smooth black rock on a beach in northern California last year. I love the way it feels in my hand, cool and calming.

Don't judge the way I live my life.

The weather was gorgeous and it finally was starting to feel like spring, so I took a little photo walk around the neighbourhood. A few more photos can be seen here.

Aaron wanted to celebrate the last weekend of his twenties by dropping acid and going to the aquarium. Unfortunately I missed out, and Aaron's turned out a dud, but Dennis was high as several kites. I didn't take as many photos of the sea creatures as I would have liked because I was a little preoccupied with making sure he wasn't going to freak out and run off into the wilderness. But it was still a nice time on a lovely spring day, and I got to see Aaron's cool new (old) apartment.
A couple more photos can be found here.

I planted these seeds (onions and parsley) about three weeks ago, along with some asparagus. The asparagus seedlings are now almost four inches tall, but these little bastards look exactly the same. Perhaps I won't be growing onions this year.

My dad gave Jeff and I a groupon for the Hart House restaurant in Deer Lake Park, so we had a date. The day was lovely and sunny, so eating delicious food in the beautiful dining room in the fading light of the evening made me think of summer. I can't wait to go back there during patio season, overlooking the gardens, forgetting I'm in a city.

crow's feet
Crow's feet. I took this because I'm trying hard not to be too vain as I get older, but it's difficult when being young and beautiful seems to be the main thing society values in women. When people say a man looks good for fifty, they generally mean he is a fit and well-groomed middle-aged man. When people say a woman looks good for fifty, they generally mean she looks younger than fifty. Why is it only acceptable for men to age? Why aren't scads of men buying eye creams or cellulite gels or dyeing their hair well into their senior citizen discount years? Why are women expected to delay the process of getting older as much as possible?

Actually taken on the fourteenth, but the intent was there to take it the day before. I just needed the right light.

10 March 12

An eventful day: I had my first professional shoot, at a conference at Harbour Centre. It wasn't too bad, and I made a couple hundred bucks and got a free lunch. Afterwards I met up with Mal, Kaylie, and Laryssa for a beer at the Irish Heather, and after darting home to drop off my camera equipment, I went back out to Grandview Lanes for Val and Tamara's birthday bowling funtimes. I also got to meet Maine & Tams' new puppy, Gypsy.

A party at Laryssa & Amanda's while Jeff Downer was visiting from Boston. I had to leave around 11:30, before things got busy, but with other people's parties, I don't usually like to be around a huge amount of people anyways. It was nice sitting around talking and drinking beer & wine earlier in the evening.
