Thursday and Friday I was on my school’s faculty retreat. It’s always nice to be on retreat, and as retreats go this was a good one. For dinner on Thursday night a bunch of us teachers went to Kokiri Korean BBQ, a restaurant that H and I had gone to when she first got her job. There was chewy rice cakes, seafood pancake, sweet potato noodles, a lovely soup; we grilled beef, spicy pork, and chicken thighs. After that we played a game called “Celebrity.” Yes, I was one of the celebrities.
Friday after the retreat I came home and slept. Later I met my boyz from college up at Mandarin Gate for karaoke. We ended up leaving late, and I ended up crashing at Y’s place.
The next morning I woke up and got some pho for breakfast, then went home and slept some more. Y called me later and we went to Five Guys for burgers. From there we took a bus to the Husky game, and sat up in section 51, row YY, way up in the nosebleeds. The game was rainy and disappointing; it was Band Night and the Huskies lost.
We walked 15 minutes in the soaking rain to M’s truck out behind Condon Hall, and he took us back to the Northgate P&R; we met up again at the Über Tavern on Aurora for a pint, and had a pizza delivered from DaVinci up the street. We ordered the Tandoori Chicken pizza, which was good! I don’t usually like chicken on pizza, but this was more like eating tandoori chicken with nan, plus cheese and sauce.
Today I’d like to finish grading my papers. Note that I said “finish;” I will consider it an accomplishment if I start.
No school tomorrow, yay! But I’m not celebrating that pinche Colombus.
