Backlog: TLUG

I caught the tail end of the Toronto Linux Users Group get-together at
the GSI pub last Tuesday, and I’m really glad I went. I chatted with
Colin McGregor about writing for journals, and received a lot of
encouragement from him, Drew, and Maureen. I also chatted with a bunch
of the other regulars. =)

I like going to those meetings, and I feel very much welcome there.
Now that I’ve made friends, I don’t have to worry about drooling
fanboys or whatever because my friends will take care of things. I
love it when I can sit down and drop into a conversation, when people
smile when they see me and draw me in, when they joke… =) It’s
almost like being home, almost like being in PLUG.

And hey, Drew’s totally cool now. =) Thanks to Bill for asking him to
be nice to me, and thanks to Maureen for being an absolutely wonderful

I like this group. I’ll go again next month.

Stirfry with Mike Tsang

Mike wanted to know how to cook the sugar peas we received in last
week’s Good Food Box, so I suggested a stirfry. He bought chicken
breasts from Dominion, and we threw it all together in my kitchen.
Onions, garlic, carrots, mushroom, sugar peas, chicken, broccoli,
sesame ginger teriyaki sauce… It turned out to be a colorful and
flavorful dinner, and it tasted fantastic! I prepared ginger jasmine
rice to go with it, and the rice was wonderfully soft and delicately

Very good food. =) Happy girl.
