Here's some before and after pics of the bedroom makeover:

Before (actually during) (check out the various shades of faux wood!)

The reveal:

The bedroom looks a bit empty because I had moved most stuff out while painting. Plus the bedding is mismatched so I took the pic with just the mattress.


We both needed to wash our fleece jackets, so figured it was a good night to eat at Lahore Tikka and then come home and do laundry. It was great as usual. Had the lamb kebabs and kahari chicken, a few chilies, and butter naan. Mmmm good.


On Saturday there was a snowplow (a little Bobcat skid loader) in the back laneway again. The Bobcat kept on going around and around the alley and front. It reminded us of WALL*E. We both cracked up.

The other day Heather noticed that Kubo Radio was papered over, and a sign that said Roy Public House. Maybe a pub? After the long wait for the bar at Curzon to open, I was a bit disappointed. The atmosphere is a bit cold at Curzon if it's not crowded (unlike, say, Barrio, which is great whether it's full or you're the only two people there). And I wish they'd serve Keiths (or at least Mill St Organic).

I got decent numbers in the SuperBowl squares pool at work: (Pittsburgh-Arizona) 3-0, 3-3, 3-4, 3-7. I won the 1st quarter!


I was wondering why CIBC was charging me service fees on my chequing account the last few months. I have a grandfathered account that gives me free unlimited transactions as long as I maintain a minimum balance of $1000. I called CIBC today and found out a few months ago they changed the minimum balance to $1500.

Well that's it for now.

  1. I was just by Kubo Radio this morning, and noticed that the sign says "The Roy Public House", then reads, "Traditional Irish Pub - Opening March 2009." So, maybe we will finally get an Irish pub in the neighbourhood! Let's hope it also serves Keith's, Eric's favourite :)
