Things I Did Last Week

I do get out every once in a while for something other than work, gym, @CrossFitCanuck and the occasional dinner/movie with @SavannahJessie.  On a fine evening at the end of February I received an invitation from my friend @katherine.e.fera to attend the @torontofuries game.
