We went to The Emerald afterwards for drinks. That place smelled awful. Do not recommend. This place sucked the life out of the Chinatown as I remember it.

An early morning drive in the Pcar and coffee stop @ Moja Coffee on Commercial Drive. Espresso pulled on their lever machine. Not bad. Oil changed today too.

Went to get allegedly amazing fries at the McDonald’s on Granville & No. 3. We asked for fresh fries, which we saw them drop into the fryer but sadly, the came out lukewarm and more like well-done, re-dropped fries. I felt fucking ripped off. Fuck you, McDonald’s!

Woodcat Coffee and an awesome Faema E61

I think Jesus maybe once drove a Lexus, but realized it was too boring, so he switched to Mercedes-Benz. Even Jesus knows how to compromise.

Facebook is suggesting this to me. She’s a pretty hot mom if you ask me.

I have a good feeling 2016 is going to be an interesting year. Some big decisions and changes are bound to happen. I’m crossing my fingers. Hope you are, too.
