Sunday, May 5th—May 11th, 2013
Not all weeks are created equal. Some have events that you may have waited ages for, like a vacation, a birthday or a milestone in your life—but some will pass by in the blink of an eye, without you fully realising what you did or why you did it.
So, in the spirit of making the most of the life I have, every now and then I’d like to put together posts called “A Week in the Life…”, a quick look at the madness I get up to and the lessons I learn from my experiences (if any).
Let’s start with May 5th through 11th!
SUNDAY the 5th
Saw Iron Man 3, and despite some clever one-liners, was generally underwhelmed by the closing act of the Iron Man trilogy. Also planned some downtime—a picnic down at the Toronto Islands, because you can’t be on “go time” all the time.
MONDAY the 6th
Went to ING Canada’s #SaverSearch as a +1 and got to see the launch of their ING Superstar Saver Search with their special guests and partners, Walk Off the Earth 😊
TUESDAY the 7th
Hit up the Scarborough Dishcrawl to see what Wexford Heights had to offer.
WEDNESDAY the 8th
Got an email from Nicole letting me know that we were only a week away from BiSC and to get ready!
THURSDAY the 9th
I took Sarah to Kraft’s SodaStream promo events at 2nd Floor Events.
What we got:
- SodaStream-carbonated drinks
- a SodaStream source and Country Time lemonade mix
How it was:
Okay. Mostly mingled and took photos; we had a good chat with someone we met named Avery about travel, Twitter and how the Internet is changing the way we live. But the SodaStream is ridiculously amazing! We’d put it in action at Sarah’s birthday party later in the week (see below)
Danforth Pizza House
FRIDAY the 10th
Got together with some fellow Ingress players from the Enlightened faction at Pour Girl to socialize…
…and later hit up Bite Bar to get what would turn out to be some delicious miniature cupcakes… (Buytopia Deal: https://www.buytopia.ca/deal/3546/?a_aid=4de9b34e683ca?skip=true&a_aid=casepam)
…ending the day with some Indian from Banjara Indian Cuisine, eaten with Sarah’s siblings to celebrate her birthday 😊
SATURDAY the 11th
We wrapped up the week with Sarah and a number of her friends to celebrate a milestone birthday that I won’t mention any more specifics on. It was a good time at the house and at Danforth Bowl, and I’m prettysure she enjoyed herself!
Until next time,

I like these summary posts. 😀
Hope you have an awesome vacation! Enjoy the conference.
Thanks, Christine 🙂
So far things have been great — made tons of new friends and partied like I can’t remember doing in WHO knows how long!
There’s a certain mindset and approach to things that I really hope to be able to bring back to Toronto, but we’ll wait until this unconference is over, and then see what’s up 🙂
I have a feeling that my future will be seeing many more of these summary posts!!!
Ummmm, you’ve been having some fun! BiSC next year? I’ll start saving and working on getting ahead on my workload 🙂
Fun has been HAD in MANY ways, Jamie! (I don’t care how wrong that sounded — it’s so right. I’ve been enjoying myself!)
Unfortunately, at this VERY moment there’s no BiSC in the cards for next year, yet. We’ll see if anyone else takes up the reins, but as things currently stand, Nicole has some other projects in mind… though they’ve yet to be revealed.
We should really figure out if there’s a way to make some of the awesome party vibe happen in Toronto!
Well I hope she enjoyed herself, because I sure did! 😛
All signs point to yes — a grand ol’ time was had by a Miss Sarah 🙂
I WANT A SODA STREAM! Yes, I know that was all in caps. I’m just that excited about it.
Allow me to inform you that the SodaStream COMPLETELY merits all caps 🙂 Simply carbonating water alone makes it taste BLOODY amazing, and I can’t wait to start experimenting with ALL THE THINGS I can do with it 😀
Best party trick ever 🙂
Yowza, busy week! Happy Belated to Sarah and those Pizza pics look sinfully delicious!
I promise you, Alex, the pizza was ALL sorts of delicious. I should point out that my favourite pizza is ALWAYS the first to go, though 🙁
Pepperoni and pineapple, why must you be such a delicious combination???
