The Porsche 911 is the reason why people work 16-hour days and eat nothing but peanut butter sandwiches for 2 years straight. It’s that good.

And I agree. But that’s because I’ve done it. And will do it again.
So I went grocery shopping and came across this in a dedicated hot-pot aisle (seriously, a fucking hot pot aisle.) Pay close attention to the demographic of the image portrayed and how much fun it is for them having hot pot. It looks like an elegant and posh affair. The reality is, hot pot fucking sucks, okay? It’s a shit tonne of work and you smell awful afterwards. Nobody dresses up for hot pot, unless you’re some kind of punk ass Communist overseas brat driving a Lamborghini Aventador with the license plate “I <3 JuJu."
The package below is a lie, and a complete waste of time. This is not what hot pot looks like.
Spent some time in Vancouver. Best city in the world? Fuck, yes. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise because they don’t know shit.
Spade – This used to be a Starbucks. I think it was the first one I went to when I was in high school, and I felt all fancy and smart when I ordered a cappuccino. Boy, was I stupid back then (and now!) Third-wave look; Second-wave appeal.
Taste & See – Caught them before they shuttered their doors for good on Saturday. A matter of lease-end, politics, permits, and a vision for a future. I hope they open up again, and soon.
Family dinner @ Sushi By Yuji. He looks tired, but was happy to see us as we haven’t been around in a while. Food isn’t as wowing as it once was, but hey, it is what it is. The sparkle and shine is no longer there.
Bringing my 2012 Cannondale CAAD10 back to life with a new groupset – 11-speed Campagnolo Potenza. This is what happens when an Italian comes to America.
Full Campagnolo Potenza 11-speed groupset (I think 11-25 cassette and 50/34 compact chainrings @ 170mm crank arms)
Custom HED Belgium C2 wheels with Sapim spokes and Ultegra hubs w/ Michelin Pro 4 Service Course tires
Mish-mash cockpit consisting of 3T, Deda, Fizik, Thomson, and Selle Italia
Missing: Bottle cages and pedals (fuck)
Coffee chat and shenanigans @ Depot (Timbertrain Coffee’s roasting facility) in Grandview-Woodlands. Despite what people and the Internet tell you, I can assure you that it is NOT in Strathcona. All these bitches out there are trying to capitalize on this Strathcona craze. As a Strathcona OG, I disapprove of this nonsense.
My Christmas wish came true (yeah right.)
On an unrelated note, my old 1979 Yamaha SR500 cafe racer popped up for sale on Craigslist, mostly unchanged, save for some mileage.
Merry Christmas to all you jerks, liars, lazy asses, and good-for-nothing freeloaders.
