Didn't Go Out Like Willy Lump Lump

by chinwhat at 9:37 a.m.
You know how some of your coworkers hate their job and joke around on how awesome it'd be to get a package and never have to come into work anymore? Yeah, that was fun. Good times even.

Good times until it really happens that is.

I got the pink slip this morning and now I'm officially unemployed due to "restructuring"

Boy i wish i could've seen the confused look on my face in that HR room. I didn't see that one coming at all!

In fact, i thought i was untouchable. Teflon coated, son. "Are Star Trek phaser couldn't phase me" (C) Meth

Obviously, i was wrong.

The worst part though was not being able to say bye to my friends at work but that's the way it goes i guess.

(Instant Realization: FUCK i should have stolen a laptop! To reiterate WiseManJohn: the company isn't loyal to you. So do them before they do you!)

So what now?

No buying anything from Adidas' online store even though the shoes i wanted to pick up were so sweet. Pass on Mexx's 50% off sale this weekend. Cancel as much of my cable as possible. Fire up the resume machine. Get back into the gym. Listen to some Romey (where ai at?)

Oh, and only one more week before hanging out with Cathy on the daily. laugh

Fergie vs Rihanna?

by chinwhat at 9:04 p.m.
At work, we’ve been getting a lot of spam email. Pretty much all of it for Viagra sales. Most of the time they’re a minor nuisance, but sometimes, the subject line makes me laugh.

This morning I got these two emails titled “Scandalous Fergie’s silicon” and “Naked Rihanna in bath”

Fergie vs Rihanna? Is this even a competition?

I mean really, do I need to expose myself to ManFace (aka Fergie) like that? The answer is no. No I do not.

Another Reason Why We're Hated In The West

by chinwhat at 9:27 p.m.
We treat our dogs like people. At the past weekend's Woofstock, I saw a dog in an actual human baby stroller (as opposed to dog specific strollers which there were plenty of) AND it had a bib on. Again, I saw a dog in a baby stroller with a bib on. A bib! AND it was being fed by hand by its owner whenever it yelped. Fed some Quizno's. Which I can't even afford! >face palm<

From 06.13.09 - Woofstock

And just as bad, I present to you, a dog which is possessive over its rideable toy car. Whenever another dog came up to it, it barked until it the other dog went away. This is probably the most selfish dog ever.

From 06.13.09 - Woofstock

But on a brighter note, there were mad hot bitches there. I would've mentioned this to my single guy friends, but they hate dogs so that's their own fault.

also, Rudy was doing lots of butt smelling. Oh Rudy.

Hanging Up The Whistle

by chinwhat at 8:27 p.m.
I was lucky enough to be asked by Chris to help him coach a youth basketball team this past season. Along with Al and John, we led the Mississauga Pilipino Athletic Association’s Wildcats team to a disastrous 2 – 7 record… with our two wins coming from default. >fog horn<

Although our record left a lot to be desired, hanging around the kids was pretty fun. They were funny as >ahem< ‘heck’ (Having to check my foul language at the door was a challenge) Yes, they could be somewhat annoying at times, but as a whole, they’re a pretty good bunch and I’m definitely looking forward to helping coach next season... hopefully to a better record

Also, I should mention that the games let me practice my fast action/sport photography. I’d post pictures, but I think its kind of creepy putting pictures of random kids so instead, here’s a picture of John and Al playing ball. They both suck by the way.

Salt & Pepper Review: Pray for My Butthole/ROLL IT GAL!

by chinwhat at 7:18 p.m.
I’m a MingRoom guy. Everyone knows that. It’s my #2 favorite restaurant and I love the way they do their Manchurian Paneer/Manchurian sauce. Hot and great coriander flavour.

CathyAl aka TheEntity (soon to become TheEntitree, which I’m claiming gloss credit for) hipped me to another Hakka place called Salt&Pepper up on 10 and Britannia. Since I was doing some IT training in the area, I decided to give it a shot based on their recommendation – and their hot warning.

In order to properly measure it against my precious MingRoom, I ordered the hot and sour soup and the Manchurian Paneer.

The H&S soup comes out first and I was REALLY impressed by the execution of this dish. It was semi clear and not thick and gluey that you’d get at a Chinese restaurant. Uniformly sliced cabbage and whole leaves of coriander were the only things that filled the soup and pretty much, that’s all it needs. Also, it was HOT! I was in full sweat-dripping/nose running mode even before I was finished the bowl.

At first I thought it was a huge punk when the waiter dropped of a FULL pitcher of water at my table until I saw him do that to other guests in the restaurant, hahaha.

Just as I finished the soup, the main came out and right off the bat, I wasn’t impressed. The paneer was heavily battered and there were only six measly pieces – compared to MingRoom’s heavily generous version. The Manchurian sauce wasn’t that good either. Yes it was hot – which is what I wanted – but lacked that cilantro flavour I expected.

Overall, it’s a nice restaurant which I’d like to go to again, but MingRoom still reigns.

Win: hot and sour soup; fire heat count

Fail: Manchurian Paneer dish, Manchurian sauce, what was REALLY fucked up was an Indian remix of Alison Hinds’ soca classic Roll It Gal. What. The. Fuck. !?!?!!
