#100HappyDays — Day 31 — As Simple as Pi

#100HappyDays Day 31 was a busy one, returning me downtown for some training, instantly feeling at home with its slushy sidewalks and people reminding me of the times I’d spend at the mall or wandering with friends, taking the energy of everything in. When I wasn’t dashing through the snow, I kept busy with many events — but which one made me happy?

#100HappyDays — Day 31 —  Pogue Mahone — Steak and Mushroom Pie

The first adventure had me wishing an old boss well, hanging with my old team at Pogue Mahone, a regular haunt for many working in Toronto’s Yonge/College area. I got my Steak and Mushroom Pie — my favourite item on their menu —and shared laughs with some of the best people I’ve worked with yet. It made me wistful for past days, and though I had a great lunch and great times, it also made me a little sad and contemplative about the future, so I don’t think this is the winner.

Talk to enough of my friends, and you’ll eventually hear dubious claims that I was born with a horseshoe lodged into my posterior.

Sure, I may win a few things. Okay, some kind of major. And sometimes, I’m just lucky enough to see a tweet advertising a contest ending in a few hours for a Cards Against Humanity expansion for House of Cards.

In wrapping up a busy long weekend, I’m glad that I swiftly got through the second season of House of Cards in my standard binge consumption fashion. The twists, the turns and the utter manipulation — you’ve gotta see it to believe it. Get on it if you haven’t already!

(KNOCK KNOCK.)

Also, you’d think that after getting a Kitchen-Aid Pro 500 stand mixer as a wedding gift, I’d bake more, but alas. In any case, these look delicious:

Today’s #100HappyDays moment was meeting up with some fellow #FordNAIAS bloggers at the Canadian International Auto Show 2014 to chat, catch up and scheme for a better future! Despite the day wearing on my already-beaten feet, there was a lot to be happy about today, whether it was meeting up with my brothers and best friend after a short hiatus; scaring the bejeezus out of Andrea and Jenn; or wrapping up House of Cards’ second season in glorious fashion!
