It's a dreary Saturday afternoon, cold and rainy and windy. I was planning to take the construction waste to the dump (from all the work I've done to the front of the house this summer), but decided against it when I saw the forecast yesterday. Maricar (she has a construction waste too) and I are going to rent a van from Home Depot some day soon before winter. We both still have room on our 1 tonne exemption from the city to use up before the end of the year.

Yesterday afternoon went to the bar across the street from work with some of my team. At one point Alex, DT and I were point at the screen on DT's laptop, talking about how the PDF-merging script referenced shell variables. Ram thought we were all a bunch of IT geeks.

Last night Heather and I went for a late beer at Leslie Jones. There is a nice atmosphere in the place, but at $18 (including tip) for two bottles of beer, I don't think we'll become regulars. We had a Steamwhistle and Stella, which are a premium and an import, but still, $18 is a bit pricey for Queen East.

Thursday night we had a really late (11:30pm) hockey game. We defaulted because we only had five skaters and goalie (you need six in case of co-incidental minors). The other team had three full lines (!) and so gave us a couple players and we just played for fun. My legs were really tired after the game.

I've reached page 832 in my book. I'm going to try to finish it this afternoon. Later this evening Heather and I have dinner plans at Tomi Kro (our favourite restaurant). Yummy!
