Normally I spend my extra day off every two weeks relaxing, not getting dressed, and taking it easy. For the first time in a long time, I was incredibly busy all day on my day off. First up, today was big brother's birthday so I headed off to get him a card. I have to say, the card selections these days are horrible. You either get something horribly cheesy and not all that funny (the option I went with) or sickeningly sappy and mushy. My card had a big face neon booger in it. 'Nuff said. After that it was on to the grocery store and home to rest and a quick bite to eat.
After lunch, I headed off to the Running Room to spend an hour with the lovely Robyn, trying to find a new pair of running shoes. FYI, she's awesome when it comes to knowing the ins and outs of proper running shoes.

Back home for a short while (with shoes AND cupcakes in hand) before heading out again. Big brother decided on Indian for his birthday dinner and we ended up at Origin India on Whyte Ave (10511-82 Ave). OMG. Delicious. I highly recommend the buffet, especially if you're picky like me. When it comes to Asian food, I tend to eat mainly vegetarian and there were a number of options available. Each one of them was super duper delicious!!!! I want to go back again tonight. Mmmmmm. Butter chicken, mixed vegetable curry, vegetable pakoras and two other dishes I don't remember the name of (one had a lot of zucchini though I think).
|A whole lotta yum.|
Tonight, I'm being sociable again! I know, two nights in a row?! What's wrong with me? Tonight is the start of our new gaming group with the super duper sister in law, brother in law, his girlfriend and a couple of other gaming newbies. Really looking forward to it!
