I love when you leave your house thinking whatever you’re about to do is mundane and tiresome and at the end of the day there was something about it that you loved or at least made you happy. On the weekend, we went tile shopping at Olympia Tiles for Jamie’s parent’s house. This sounds very boring, but:
On the walk over to Jamie’s parent’s house, I spotted the first up-close super red tree of the year. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned my obsession with autumn yet…Bah! *Slaps knee*
Also, the walk was really nice- the air was a bit crisp and walking next to High Park always makes me think I’m breathing in fresher air than anywhere else in Toronto. Even though I’m not.
At the tile store, it was very giant and pretty with all the tiles on the wall. Stuff like this is when normal people would be all “It’s just a tile store…that’s boring.” I say, yes it is boring, but also it is fun. It had an indoor foliage corner, free coffee and I got to satisfy an OCD compulsion I’ve had since I was little- I love the sound of high heels clicking on marble floor. Or just the feel of marble. I don’t really like houses with marble because it’s too fancy shmancy and cold but if I was a gazillionaire, I would have an entire room made of marble and mirrors like in “Return to Oz” and I would walk around in clicky heels and play my music wearing one of my many heads (watch the movie).
I’m one of those people that hippies hate because I love when stores decorate for Holidays. In the fall or Christmas especially, I like going through the mall or looking in stores’ window displays because it gives me the warm feeling. I don’t actually buy anything, I just appreciate a good holiday decorating scheme.
On Monday, the gals and I went to see “Easy A” and to have “Ladies Night” at Milestones where you drink Bellinis and eat appetizers for cheap. Bellinis were delicious (although lacking in booze), the apps were yummy and filling and Glyde appeared just in the nick of time to offer us some macaroons from Paris. Literally. She had been in Paris that morning, brought some macaroons on the plane, and when she landed, she came to see the movie with us and shower us with Parisian goods. What a champ. “Easy A” was amazing as it was expected to be considering it stars two of the world’s most talented and sexy-fine young lady comediennes, Emma Stone and Amanda Bynes. And a new favourite of mine, Alyson Michalka from Hellcats. Fine, laugh. But at the end of the day, you can’t do crazy flips with abs of steel and also play guitar and sing and be beautiful. So shush.
On Tuesday, my plans were cancelled so I came home earlier than expected and Jamie said he thought we could go out for dinner. What I thought was going to be a humble evening at Wild Wings turned out to be an amazing spontaneous fancy dinner date with Jamie at Blue Plate on Roncy. This is not a common occurrence and it was even better because it was sprung on me in a surprise-like fashion. Super-yummy food, great wine, great atmosphere and gross and romantic and stuff.
Amazing friend and receptionist at work left this week to go ahead into the world and do awesome stuff without me. Awesome for her, ugly for me 😦 Miiissss yooouuuu!
We played “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds as Meley walked out of the office for the last time…like in The Breakfast Club.
Free lunch at work today for farewell party! Am I not 600 lbs yet?…How could this be?…curious….
