Fishy Circumstances

Friday: Mt. Everest and Nirvana

BA and I met up on Friday to go to an all-you-can-eat rice pudding joint, otherwise known as a buffet lunch at an Indian/Nepali restaurant named Mount Everest (south side of Bloor, west of Spadina). She'd been once before and recommended it highly. I'm particularly fond of rice pudding, and so was easily coaxed into joining her. And she was right.

Later that day, after seeing the Pearls exhibit, saffronjan and I tried out a new restaurant in the same stretch of Bloor, but on the north side, called Nirvana. The host at the front said they'd been open for three days, but later a waiter confessed that they'd been open for a total of about five hours. Nirvana occupies the same space that we closed down, back when it was an Indian restaurant, for cwjat's birthday. It's been one other restaurant in between incarnations.

Saturday: Ultimate Frisbee

A week ago, I played ultimate frisbee for the first time in years. My legs were miserably sore by the end, but that was all the more reason to show up yesterday morning for the next game. I arrived about five minutes before the game and, yet again, was only the second person to show. Jonathan and I waited while watching Law finish their game with Forestry, our oponents from last week. Forestry trounced them by using zones, which they'd not encountered before - none of us are that serious as teams.

Proof of how not-serious we are? Only five members of my team showed, so we defaulted on the game. Again. So did our opposition, who, after a glut of players last week, had a measly two of them show. We asked the referee if she could call it on behalf of the weather - it had started sprinkling lightly - but she said there had be to thunder and lightening in order to call the game off. (This seems like something of a silly system to me: you can have hurricane weather with no thunder or lightening, and there can be thunder and lightening far off with no rain or wind in the immediate vicinity.)
