It feels like there is no one at College right now. The last two people I’ve seen here were Chris and Kate. They’ve both from Richmond. It appears that if you’re still here, either you live really close by or really far away.
Tomorrow, the final meal at SJC for the year will be served. It’s this crazy five hour Christmas buffet brunch thing. It starts at 7am. Special fancy breakfast items will be served at first. Then, as time goes by, more and different food will be brought out. At around 10am, I’m guessing brunch items will start appearing. Around 11am, the lunch stuff should be out. I don’t think anyone stays from 7am to 12pm, but you could. Last year, I got there really late, but I managed to have shrimp dumplings, smoked salmon, and maui ribs, all on the same plate.
I’m going to try my best to get there by 10:30am. If I were an early riser, I’d go in at 8am or so for breakfast and come back every hour on the hour to try the new stuff.
Tonight, I went out to dinner with Justine, an old friend of mine from undergrad. I haven’t seen her in years. She suggested the Alibi Room. It’s a neat venue, but I thought the salmon there was so-so. It’s probably a better place for drinks than food.
Justine is one crazy bird, she had a lot to say during dinner. I got caught up with her life, which took a while. After our meal, she wanted a coffee, so we drove to Main St. in her ecletic Valiant. It’s got no seat belts and my window was piece of plastic tarp. In a way, it was very fitting. It was good to see her again.
Justine mentioned she saw Return of the King the night before. Am I the only person that hasn’t seen that yet? It’s not even the weekend, and it seems everyone I know has found a 3.5 hour chunk of time to view it.
I’m not sure when I’ll see it. I’m tempted to see it in any old crappy theatre just to get it over with, but that would violate a few personal rules I have about viewing movies. I think in the end, it would be wrong to see it at any place other than a Silvercity. This means I’ll have to go out to Burnaby or Coquitlam.
Ok, so enough rambling for tonight.
