The Tim Hortons Roll Up The Rim contest started today – I’ve been anxiously waiting for this contest to start (even going as far as to drag Michelle into a Timmies to see if the contest started yesterday).
They axed the $1000 prizes but replaced it with a lot of $50 gift cards, and decided to throw in a boat instead of a bike. Unfortunately, we live in Alberta – not only do we have to buy a trailer for the boat, but we have to get it near a body of water.
Oh well, that won’t deter me anyways. Toyota Matrix XR, here I come!

I don’t think I’ll ever spend a whole week in Toronto – Its ridiculous how frequently I spend little busts of time here.
Technical blurriness caused by error between Nick and the D300.
Director Nick picked me up from the airport – its super nice because I’m actually seeing him more often than I expected. We headed to the Loose Moose by the Fairmont hotel for “Sliders” (rad mini burgers), and cheered for the Raptors as they almost made it back from a close game.
[Clarification: Neither Nick or I even remotely enjoy basketball]

I ended up taking a “standby” ticket for an earlier flight, in hopes of making it back to Calgary an hour earlier. I did make it on, and Air Canada decided to award me with leaving my baggage behind. To make up for missing my baggage, they gave me this wonderful pity kit, complete with toothbrush, razor, laundry detergent and a fresh XL undershirt (I barely fit smalls).
Oh, and one more thing – Air Canada is a complete sell-out, and not in the good way. They have advertisements that play after the safety video, with audio throughout the whole cabin, and also three minutes of non-stop advertisements before you watch any show. Hard to believe we pay so much money just to be bombarded with ads and bad service.
The McDonalds in Hong Kong gives away these cool brown “red pockets” with a purchase of the Black Pepper Chicken or Beef sandwich, with curly fries, all presented in an awesome mouse box. HK is so cool.
My mom says that this year is supposed to be “bad” for rats… I’m not sure how that works, since I am one myself. I guess its something like “Happy Chinese New Year to everyone but rats – since its your year, we’ll celebrate how crappy your year may potentially be”. Thanks mom.
I have no idea what this candy is, but it tastes awesomely good.
From what I can somewhat decypher, this candy is Japanese (obvious point +1), and when you pop it in your mouth, is a combination of yogurt and fruit. If you’re curious as to the web site of this candy…
Thanks Angela, for picking up this thing for me since I couldn’t find it at T&T by myself. -_-
