The Week That Was… November 15th – 21st, 2015.

Writing these weekly wrap-ups do more than just help me remember the hijinks I get up to each week—they also keep me well aware of the time that’s trickling through my fingers, and how quickly 2015 will be a foggy memory instead of the current reality. 2016 brings new goals, more family, and while I never know what’s around the corner anymore, I’m sure plenty of opportunities I’d never imagined possible.

Which is all the more reason I need to get this 2015 stuff off of my plate so I can tackle 2016 with a clear head!

Rasslin’ Big Smoke Burger’s “Urban Cowboy” for Hellmann’s Burger Route

The Week That Was... November 15th—21st, 2015—Big Smoke Burger at CF Toronto Eaton Centre—Urban CowboyI happened over Hellmann’s Burger Route by chance while visiting the Village’s Fresh Burger, surprised that I hadn’t heard of an event spanning more than 30 restaurants across the GTA! This simple discovery changed my November lunch hours, taking me places I usually found too far to visit.

This week saw the first trip (of many) down to the CF Toronto Eaton Centre’s Big Smoke Burger to get my grubby man-sized paws on their Urban Cowboy, which I’m pretty sure is the best fast food burger I’ve ever tasted. No lie—this isn’t even sponsored. I went back another two times to get it, knowing it’d likely be unavailable after November. I waited in line for this burger — Casey Palmer don’t wait in no lines. Too bad it’ll likely be gone by the time you read this ?

Farewell, Urban Cowboy—we knew ye well.

The Year That Was… 2010.

Man, so this is one of the last weekends of the year—I don’t know how it all happened, but somehow it’s December all of a sudden. Utter insanity. A ton went down in 2010…

  • I think I mentioned getting engaged—the story behind it is pretty epic, but I think that it warrants a separate blog entry unto itself
  • The 2010 OPS Battle of the Bands was a big hit—I haven’t heard the numbers behind it, but with 9 bands playing over 6 hours, it had a ton of fans and a lot of enjoyment behind it.
  • And some videos:

  • Been looking into investing in some epic kitchen equipment for my eventual return to the art of cooking. Tap Phong Trading Co., The Cook’s Place and
  • Not to mention the need for comfortable bedding—mi amiga has recommended the Dreams Factory Outlet to me—looking forward to establishing the standards for the rest of my life!
  • Soon enough (after getting married) I’ll need to organize and design my office (which I will take over from the spare bedroom in Sarah’s place). I’m already considering what I might want to see on the walls—PopChartLab is good for having quirky, awesome prints

But really, most importantly, there are 12 shopping days left until Christmas and I haven’t even started working getting any of the items I need to buy yet. Yeah, it’s going to be really interesting this year 😕
