Buffalo Wild Wings, Boxing, Cards Against Humanity

After Wayzgoose on Saturday, I went to Buffalo Wild Wings with some friends for Barcraft for lunch. I ate a bunch of wings, as you might expect, and brought some home with me to eat for dinner while watching the fight. Pacquiao was fighting Bradley again, and I was pretty excited to watch. I eventually learned that BWW was showing the fight, so in the evening I went again (but to a different location at least).

There was a $10 cover charge per person to watch the fight, but it was worth it. It was pretty full when we got there, but a guy had two extra seats at his table because two of his friends couldn’t make it, so we sat with them. It made watching the fight much more enjoyable. It was a pretty great fight. I think both Pacquiao and Bradley fought a bit differently. I was happy with the fighters and with the judging, which seems rare.

I ate 17 wings that day.


This afternoon I went to Kean Coffee to play Cards Against Humanity with gem, Jessica, and Erica. It was a lot of fun. We should have been doing this regularly.


I also got some sweet towels and a wetsuit from Jessica. Woo!

And then, for dinner – well, remember those wings I brought back from lunch that I was intending to eat for dinner? And then remember how I ended up going back to BWW? That means I still had more wings, so I had wings again. Ugh. No more chicken wings for a while I hope. I think 27 wings might be too much for a single weekend!

Celebrate UCI / Wayzgoose 2014

Today was Wayzgoose! I always really enjoy returning to UCI for Wayzgoose. It might be more fun now that I’ve graduated because there’s a novelty to looking around. There are campus tours, booths for all the organizations, performances, a car show, and in past years a small medieval showing (although I didn’t see any this year). While not part of the festivities, there are usually a lot of dogs on campus, which is a plus to me.

gem found a ukulele buddy

One booth didn’t seem to be setup yet, but it did have a guy playing his ukulele! gem joined him, and they played together for a little bit, teaching each other.

I had some spam musubi, lumpia, and chicken kabobs, which were all delicious. I was going to get a shawarma from the Muslim Student Union like I do every year, but I wasn’t hungry enough today. We also checked out the cars at the car show. I like looking at the Model As the best.

gem is poop

The medical center had a giant inflatable colon. In this photo, gem is poop.

We also ran into some Improv Revolution members inside the colon and discussed improv. It was fun!

Malignant Polyp

I’m ready to begin the operation! This reminds of me of Trauma Center: Under the Knife.

engineering tower

We walked back to our car by passing through the courtyard between Engineering Tower and the ICS building. gem took my photo in front of Engineering Tower.

Engineering Tower, UCI

And I took one too.

gem plays ukulele at UCI

gem stopped to play ukulele near Engineering Gateway too.

I still think UCI’s a really beautiful school. I can’t help but think, “I’d like to go to school here,” even though I already did.

Pork chops for dinner

Pork chops

Delicious. Pork chops, potato, and Brussels sprout. The pork chops were super cheap too. I usually stick with beef because I don’t have to worry about undercooking it, but this worked wonderfully.

Baked banana with chocolate peanut butter candies

You can’t forget dessert. I put milk chocolate peanut butter bears (essentially peanut butter cups) in the sliced banana before baking it. I had some Albertsons butter pecan ice cream with it too.
