I drive a small car

Toronto is insane. A homeless guy ran in front of my car and hopped in the back of a garbage truck. I had to yell at them to notice me driving next to them to get their attention. And then I cut in front of them and yelled at the driver to pull over and stop. Which they did. When I pulled into my driveway, they stopped at the lights and got out. The guy had run half way across the park by then. He was probably hopped up on something and looking for a free ride uptown. Crazy.

We didn't end up going to the Mod Club on Saturday night. Partly because the TTC was on strike and partly because we were talking at the bride's house til after 11 pm. We decided to walk down to the Bier Markt and the line up must have had at least 50 people standing in the freezing cold. So we sat in a dark corner of the snug bar at Fionn MacCool's and drank until everyone started yawning... about an hour later. I was home by 1 pm.

Sunday was much more productive though. I hung out with a girlfriend who is leaving her husband. We went for dim sum at Roll-San. That's where I normally go with Grey. I even had a beverage produced by his company and he was so proud of me when I sent him a text to tell him! Then we wandered around Kensington market for hours. I found some cute finger puppets for A. One is Krishna and the other is Ganesha. She'll probably have a good laugh. She's arriving tomorrow from the UK. Surprising her parents. I can't wait to see their faces when we arrive at the house. Anyway, I digress.

There is a cute little restaurant called Hibiscus on Augusta and I was so excited that they make buckwheat crepes that are dairy-free and egg-free! I haven't had a crepe in about 5 years so I had a nutella banana crepe even though we had just eaten dim sum a couple of hours prior. It was the best tasting crepe I have ever had. After that, we came back to my apartment and talked for a couple of hours. Other than the cold weather, it was a really good day.

That town is crazy to drive in when everything's working properly. I almost lost a fender on that ridiculous QEW once. If I were you, I'd either stay home or walk everywhere for the duration.

Well, I'm glad you got some Nutella if not a mean dance lick and some super snappy moves in the club. I've always preferred a sloppy drunk night with friends around a cozy table anyhow. Then it doesn't matter if you're all full and your bra straps are showing.
