NERF WAR?

It’s Friday night and what was supposed to be a night of music bingo, dinner, and playing pool at the local pool hall — ended up being a night totally different from what we originally planned.

EXPLORING VICTORIA WITH MY MOM

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE!

I wasn’t planning on posting a video today, but since I took my mom around Victoria to check out some places she’s been to and haven’t been to, I couldn’t resist 🙂

We went to Camosun College, the breakwater at Ogden Point, another area (which I can’t remember the name to), and Fisherman’s Wharf.

Enjoy!

SURPRISING MY PARENTS + DOWNTOWN VICTORIA LIGHTS

“PROJECT SURPRISE MY PARENTS” WAS A COMPLETE SUCCESS! HUZZAH!

Took my parents on a date: dinner at Cafe Mexico, and a stroll around downtown Victoria looking at all the beautiful lights around town.  Including going to The Fairmont Empress Hotel and looking at all the decorated trees, as well as, checking out the outdoor skating rink. We then drove around Dallas Road to see if there were any more christmas lights to be seen. BUT THERE WASN’T REALLY AT ALL! Not even Uplands had any decorated houses except for maybe 3 houses… which was disappointing.

I discovered the next night that there are more houses decorated around Interurban (of all places, I would never have guessed!) If you ever lived or been to Victoria, then you will know where I’m talking about! 🙂

Honestly, Victoria is so beautiful during Christmas time, I never really appreciated it until I moved away haha

Happy Holidays! 🙂

I’ll see you Tuesday, I MIGHT put up a video on Thursday (we’ll see…), and I’ll try to vlog a little big of the “Thom Christmas” extravaganza!

HOW NOT TO TEACH

Hello!

During the holidays, my family (mainly my siblings and my cousins) like to get together to play either boardgames or, in this case, MAHJONG!

Now… it’s not like the mahjong you used to play on the computer where you match and pair tiles! PUH-LEASE!

This is like LEGIT MAHJONG (think of it like the game Dominos…but way more fun!)

In this video, my cousin Jeff invited John-Evan over to my parents’ house and he took it upon himself to “teach”him how to play this game….

You decide yourself whether or not there was any “teaching” involved as it was mostly a dash of verbal abuse haha

ENJOY!

YOU DON’T KNOW ME

This past weekend, I decided to see how well me and my oldest friend, Katrina, knew each other. So I came up with a game called “YOU DON’T KNOW ME” — where we answer questions only WE should know of each other…

Although, someone wasn’t prepared after giving a weeks notice, so we may have to do a PART 2 sometime down the road…

Backwards Sticky-Face Challenge

Inspired by SAWYER HARTMAN & TYLER OAKLEYS “Drunk Backwards Word” video (link here: http://youtu.be/8exCbabrI44) – I decided to do this game with my cousin, Jon (who you may remember from the last video we did “THE WHISPER CHALLENGE” (link here: http://youtu.be/aLDdboM6WhA).

Because both him and I had to work the next morning, I changed the part of instead of drinking we would just stick sticky notes on our faces instead!
