1. Mediatheque: 00:41
The Mediatheque is a totally awesome place. I watched a few animated shorts and experimental films. Mike made sure I watched Ryan, a deep piece about a famous artist who ended up as a Montreal panhandler. Excellent use of computer graphics to tell a very thought-provoking story.
I'll go back there by myself to watch some of the longer, deeper pieces. Mike searched for all the Philippine-related things, and I'm particularly looking forward to the documentary about Filipino migrant workers. Television can be somewhat insipid, but these on-demand documentaries, experimental films, and archived footage are certainly worth spending time on.
It's amazing, what's available for free...

3. Chicken breasts marinated in red wine vinegar: 23:37
I splurged on the Joy of Cooking book yesterday, and this was the first time I used it. The basic recipe for sauteed chicken breast called for the chicken breasts to be lightly salted, peppered, and floured. I added rosemary, too. I browned some butter and mixed in some olive oil on a skillet, then added the chicken breasts and cooked them for four minutes on one side at medium-high heat. Then I flipped them and cooked them for another three minutes. I was worried that I might've burnt the chicken because it was a bit black, but it turned out nice, juicy, and cooked through.
Quinn's place is pretty nice. I like high ceilings. We had a lot of fun chatting after dinner, too, and she gave me several ideas for a few parties I'd like to hold sometime.
