Weekend Wrapup

"Turn it up;
Let it play.
I wanna hear that sound til my windows break."
- Kardinal Offishall feat. Karl Wolf - Turn It Up
(I went to one of Kardinal Offishall's video shoot's once. I met him, took a picture with him, then I asked if I could use his laptop. He said no. True story.)

This weekend I...

had yet another busy weekend!

On Saturday, we went to Montreal. Yes, again. This time it was to cheer on our Toronto Football Team at the Olympic Stadium. Our friend Javid so graciously hooked us up with the tickets, which included a charted bus ride to and from Montreal.

It was a long bus ride! But at least it was quiet.

Going to another city to cheer on your home team was an experience like no other. We were escorted off the bus by security and huddled into our own section, where we were barred off from the side of the home team fans. We actually broke a record for the most MLS traveling fans to support their team in another city (it was in the news and can be read about here). There were about 5000 of us there!

The picture of the field may or may not have been a result of us sneaking over to the home team side. The top right picture is a sea of TFC fans (we were seated up in the rafters, but that's okay) and the bottom right picture is a shot of the stadium.

There are better pictures on someone else's camera, but I haven't received them yet.

Sunday was a day to catch up on the gym and cheat on everyone's diet with some green beer.

You can't tell, but I'm wearing a green shirt under that blazer. I swear.

Although we don't really like the taste of Guinness, Jerome ordered one just to get the clover painted on it. Pretty cool stuff.

How was everyone else's weekend?

I'm linking up here, here and here.


  1. I'm amused by the shamrock painted on top of the guiness too, and I'd totally order it just for the shamrock alone!
