Place 72 – Day 193: Vancouver, BC – Some Rough Stuff

Curtis’ Day

Curtis got to work a little later than usual today, but still on time!

He had some admin to get done and got ready for his team project meeting.

After that meeting, Curtis had a few ticket based things to get done and then had a few meetings.

He had a meeting to discuss a new process with his team and then after that, he had a training session regarding some network things.

Curtis did something that took a long time, but he was glad he got it done.

When Curtis finished lunch, he completed an offboard and once that was done he put away a bunch of hardware that returned from a conference and then went and had a drink with people in the office.

Kim’s Day

Kim started her day by going through emails and setting herself up. She then spent a while going through her expenses and making sure everything matches.

She had a meeting with a colleague to go over the ordering process for the two other offices while she is away on leave. It was great to get a chance to go through a the log ins and processes with help the first time.

The pizza then arrived for the monthly social talk so Kim set that up and then the talks went ahead. was a shorter session today with only 3 talks so Kim allowed people a longer time slot.

After she cleared all the pizza boxes away Kim went to set up guitar hero in the kitchen. She forgot that she kept the xbox and everything thats needed upstairs for easy access. This meant she took a trolley all the way to the basement to pick up a load of useless stuff that she just has to return back there at some point.

Kim had been experiencing a little strain in her shoulder lately so she had arranged for a 30 minute deep tissue massage through her insurance company to sort that out. She went to that, had a great time with the therapist there, he recently loved back to BC from Auckland, New Zealand so there was lots to talk about.

When Kim got back she helped finish the set up for the Friday afternoon drinks and got back to work.

Kim took the quiet time to go through the transactions that take a little more digging to find the answer. She is now only left with a couple that require waiting on a response or that need a phone call.

She wrote up the message for an upcoming holiday themed potluck and spent a good amount of time going through the backlog! It was great to have a bit of time to answer the smaller questions and get some stuff off of her plate.

Hockey Time!

Curtis had a hockey game at 21:15. He got home and sorted out his hockey kit, as well as re-taping his stick.

He put all of that in the car and then made some dinner.

He made chicken teriyaki with rice, it was tasty and quick and easy!

At 20:10, we left to head to he rink.

Curtis’ team lost 7-2…which isn’t good, but they did have a lot of spare players instead of regular players.

Curtis’ line played pretty well, but at the end of the game, curtis got 6 penalty minutes for retaliating to someone cross checking him.

Due to this, he was kicked from the game, with there being just a couple of minutes left in the game.

We got back home and it was pretty much bed time, so we got ready to sleep.


This Time Last Year!
