Highlights of the week

Food: On Monday, Nana and Mummy joined me for lunch at Google. We ate at the Pure Ingredient Cafe, which is in my building and one of my favourites. Nana seemed to enjoy her sushi and grilled fish, and Mummy loved the peanut butter chocolate crème brûlée. On Saturday, I made and ate momos, which are a kind of Tibetan dumpling, for the first time. There’s a special technique of pinching the dough to make nice-looking round dumplings like this one which I didn’t quite master, but they were tasty anyway. On Sunday, Graham and I — neither of whom really cook much — successfully made a tofu and vegetable curry with help from Trader Joe’s Masala Simmer Sauce.

Dancing: Sadly missed Fasterpolka on Thursday, but did my best to make up for it on Friday. Notable dances include a fun hustle with John to Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up,” an exhilarating polka with Eric to “Siamsa” from Lord of the Dance, a bronco schottishe with Bob, and a Zwiefacher with Jason.

Lots of good friend time with Graham, including Victor Borge, Mononoke Hime, and Shape Note. Got an unexpected face wash from an adorable bichon.  Biked to work for the first time in several months.  Saw Definitely, Maybe with my aunt, which was surprisingly good.
