I love it when Raye comes to town.

She met me at work yesterday so that I actually left on time. That was a big treat that I need to treat myself to more often.

We hung out at my place, chatted and had a drink before getting all pretty to go out.

Then we took the TTC downtown. The plan was to go to C'est What? but who knew that it would be so busy on a Friday night? So we wandered over to The Keg just around the block and although their wait was similar, we decided that a big steak dinner was just the decadence we needed. As was the chocolate raspberry martini that I ordered. MMMmm!

After a lucious dinner (the best part of which was the excellent conversation), we walked over the Paramount theatre to see Constantine. I'll admit, I was a little worried that it would suck.

It didn't.

So Raye and I discussed the questions brought up by the movie, we stood in line to tell customer service that there one speaker was broken. And they just gave us free passes, just like that!

We hopped on the TTC home and caught the LAST bus up Don Mills to my place - what luck! And chatted til we fell asleep.

And now, while I make banana bread, write emails and do laundry, she's still lying in there, dead to the world. Wish I could do that!

And here I go to wake her up...

Things that give me pleasure:

  • wandering the SuperStore at night
  • surfing the web
  • crisp clear nights that aren't too cold
  • drinking rich strong coffee and doing nothing at all

    Was anyone else retarded enough to buy the Skinny brand of corn chips from the special promotion bin at the Great Canadian Superstore?

    Was it only me?

    I was taken in by the lure of a healthy corn chip. I thought it actually meant they were corn chips (you know, like the ones made by Frito-Lay). Not a chance. These are more like savoury corn puffs. And not all that savoury, I might add, even though the package boasts "More Flavour!"

    I keep putting more in my mouth thinking, "no, they must be better than I remember." But they're not.

    This week at choir, we learned a new piece. Although "learn" is a bit of a stretch. I just mouthed the words. As usual.

    But am learning other parts... slowly. Hurrah.

    I need to practice. Except that i don't know how to read music. It's a bit of a problem.

    And then work is crazy. Exciting - I'm about to launch a new portal - but so ridiculously busy right now.

    And then the rest of me feels restless. And irritable. And... something.

    I'm trying to figure out what's wrong.

    I am in pain.

    Saturday, at Mount St. Louis Moonstone, it was me against the hill. And the hill won.

    I did a total face-plant after getting a little cocky and trying to race my mom.

    Caught an edge and WHAM! It was all a blur. Suddenly I was lying on the snow with my goggles around my neck and my ski halfway up the hill.

    The shock took a moment to wear off. And then the pain set in. Oh, my knee, my elbow, my head! I gingerly reassembled myself and by the time I was finished, I was laughing at my spectacular wipe out.

    I skied the rest of the day (with more care and importance placed on technique rather than speed) quite happily.

    Then I went straight to SportMart to buy a helmet.

    Lesson learned.
