A Damn Cold Day

With the constant fluctuation of temperatures, there wasn't a lot to look forward to until...

Fancy some food trucks?
After months of eating the same old on campus, I was elated to hear that 4 food trucks would be making their way to UTSC. Oh, how I've dreamed of finally being able to savour various tasty morsels of pure gold that I've only been able to witness on TV (We don't get food trucks much, or even at all where I live; they only frequent downtown).
For those that aren't local, we've had flucuating temperatures like you wouldn't believe. Yesterday, it was 20c+, today was only 4c, and this didn't help me on the day the trucks were visiting. Needless to say, I wasn't the only one tired of our food choices, so it was no surprise that the line ups were going to be long, but I should've known it would take some time for food to actually get out of the trucks.

You know you want some sammies

I think I lined up for just over 1 hour to place and receive my order. Was it worth it?

Behold, BBQ Brisket sammy and...wait, what is that?
And here we have Beef-Bacon Maple Doughnuts
First, with the BBQ brisket sammy. The slaw was a nice and acidic contrast to the smokey beef, but the beef itself, once you get deeper into the sandwich, was very dry. I also think the brisket was not tender enough. At first, I thought these beef-bacon doughnuts were something special; what a letdown. These doughnuts had a nice crispy shell, and a nice doughy centre with bacon bits spread about. I feel that these are very comparable to fried Timbits with bacon bits stuffed inside.

So was it worth it? Well, definitely not for the 1hr wait in the cold, but would I visit them again, given what we have on campus. Maybe

Have you tasted any fares from your food trucks? Anything special you've seen on food trucks that you've tried, or have been dying to try? Let me know in the comments below!

Here Comes "The Governor"

With the conclusion of season two of "The Walking Dead" (which just aired a few minutes ago as of this post) we finally get closure to the cliffhanger from season one and a whole new cliffhanger for season 3.

Introducing Michonne

For the peeps that remember from season one, we finally get to know what Dr. Jenner told Rick at the CDC in the last episode, which Rick was able to confirm with his own hands (I'll try not to spoil too many things in this and future episodes). We also get introduced to a new character (picture above) who rescues Andrea (you know this is going to be a great character for the next season). We also get to see a helicopter fly across the sky a one point...who knows what this means.
I really can't believe how closely they are following the comics with the series (although I am not caught up with the comics, I am guessing that I have read far enough to probably where season 3 will end) and for those that know what happen in the comics, I wonder how they'll be able to interpret that on national television.
And for those that couldn't make out the structure that was shown at the end of this episode, it is a prison facility.

As always, leave a comment on your predictions on the next season or comments on this and past season!

Back from the Dead

Wow, it has been weeks since my last post and I have to say, it has been one of the most difficult weeks ever.

Just one of the few things I missed because of my midterms

 Well continuing from my post a few weeks back, I basically isolated myself from the online world, which ultimately meant that I wasn't on Steam for a whole week. I also abstained myself from fun things, which included things like the second season of "The Walking Dead". (I can assure you I'm catching up on all the episodes now.
     But what I'd like to talk about the most, is that Steam is offering a free weekend (till Sunday) of Payday: The Heist. For those of you that are new to Steam, this basically means that you can play the game for free (full access, single and multiplayer) for a full weekend! For those that already have steam, just login and click the link below to start downloading the game! (For those that don't already have an account, you'll need to create one first by downloading the Steam client.)


Have fun guys, especially since middterms season is coming to an end for most of us.
Maybe I'll bump into you guys in a game!

Tell me what you like (or don't like) about the game in the comments below.
