I wrote half a post
yesterday Saturday and Sunday. This is the reason that in order to blog you can’t just “be a blogger” and you have to do things. And now it’s Monday Tuesday and Monday’s post isn’t up. (I am not even “trying too hard” here, I am just not trying.)
I mean, on Saturday I did have the joy of going to The Keg steakhouse as a vegetarian, but the fact that the desserts are delicious (and I did not even take a picture of them. I say them but they were shared.) does not rectify the fact that there is not even so much as pasta and marinara on the menu.
Anyways, pictures (or lack-there-of of dessert pictures) from the week.
Canadian things. With my cousin Dean.
Walking in -23 for poutine…
Yes. There is ice. In my hair. From returning from walking for poutine.
(Other Canadian things include the fact that I live in walking distance from poutine. Which is actually a problem but less of a problem than I thought.)
I got home to mail from my friend Dia! EXCITING.
My friend Simi got me into this British talk-show host named Jeremy Kyle.
(He’s like Maury but there’s less Not-Father dancing and more “Is my mum” [with a u] “trying to murder me?” and “Which of my children stole my iPhone”.
There are a lot of lie detectors and DNA tests, though.
He has a book. So I bought it because I have this shiny-ness.
Also purchased with said Indigo card:
These were in my package from Dia…
…They are ridiculously delicious.
This is as much a lie as the Canada Warm truck I see on occasion. IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER.
It’s pink though. I saw the top (sans words) from my kitchen and I had to investigate (without going outside. Obviously. Because Warm Home.)
My friend Riki was cleaning out her room. And texting me pictures of things she thought I might like.
This hat? Obviouslyyyy.
(The Canadian government sends GST rebates if you, like me, make less than a certain amount of money. They also keep telling me I need to enrol in direct deposit, which I do, but also that will totally ruin the joy of GST cheques.)
Dia is working very hard to get me to embrace the moleskine planner (red). I do enjoy the moleskine notebooks, but as I wrote at the beginning of the month, sometimes I feel like notebooks are too nice and I need to be super intentional with them. (Which is ridiculous really. It’s paper.)
Anyways, I’m really trying here. Except 90% of the time I put stuff in Google Calendar and then into the Moleskine. Is that proper?
I was playing with the slow shutter app. Apparently I need work at this because… what?
Also regarding Dia, because she loves smores.
Also I did not get the smores ones, but I did get mini-donuts as a reward for going to the Kitchen, Bath and Reno(vation, not Nevada) Show with my mom on Saturday.
Sleepy Pikachu Pebble face.
(He doesn’t always sleep. Just at nighttime.)
Oh, that’s pretty.
My Slicecream looks like a bear.
You can see it, right? Sam suggested Bear in the Big Blue House.
I briefly tried to 12 of 12 today. And failed.
I did read part of two books and the entirety of Junie B. First Grader: Dumb Bunny.
(Because it’s meant for third graders, but holy those books are occasionally hilarious.)
Thanks, public library eBooks!
Speaking of history.
