two years of successful British-Canadian relations

It's our second anniversary on Monday, which I suppose will no longer be our anniversary when we get married. How strange to think that our anniversary will now take place on September 25. Should we still celebrate both? Hey, why not...if it means going out for a nice anniversary dinner twice a year, that can't be a bad thing.

I bought an enormous bag of crystallized ginger. It only came in one size but it looked pretty darn tasty. I envisioned snacking on it like dried papaya or trail mix, and since I love ginger so much, it was bound to be a treat. So I tore into the bag and stuffed a big piece of it in my mouth. My immediate reaction was "HOOOOOOOOOOOOWHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" Seriously, that's the noise I made (luckily, I was at home with the dog at the time and he generally doesn't think that I'm weird). Now I know that ginger is rather pungent, but man. My sinuses have never been so clear. Ever. I think it's really meant to be nibbled in small doses or used in cooking, so this bag is probably going to last me a good ten years. If anyone wants some crystallized ginger, it will be available at my desk starting tomorrow.
