weekend & rainy day activities
I’m a workaholic worker bee work monster-o-rama these days, so weekends for me… not really a thing. Still, despite the rainy blah weather Toronto experienced over this past weekend, and despite working the entirety of the whole thing and being zonked out of my mind, I was pretty happy with the work/play balance of the last few days (usually when I’m zonked the social thing takes a backseat to lying on the couch).
Friday I moved out of the Mjolk house where I’d be kitty-sitting the last two weeks (*sniff* bye pretty house! bye most comfortable bed that ever happened!) I managed to wake myself up just enough to get dressed up in whatever 1930s-esque gear I could dig out of our closet to attend a friend’s Gatsby-themed birthday party, where I danced and wheezed sweatily to a live jazz band and ate more than what was surely my allotted share of macaroons from Nadege (mojito flavoured were the favorite of the evening).
Saturday I met the Polkaroo, ‘B’ my co-worker at QWAC I’ve worked alongside without ever having met for 2 months now, and we insta-hit it off.
” B, Can I take your photo?”
“Sure, let me go get the mannequin heads!”
Saturday we spent a lovely wine-fuelled evening in our friend S’s new apartment (which may be the nicest place I’ve seen in Toronto, seriously… she’s directly facing Trinity-Bellwoods park, and there are like 37 skylights in her place; I was swooning) with her ultra-delicious twins M&A who I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE, almost as much as I love watching Kevin read them Harry Potter.
Today, we got up early before I went to work to have breakfast together at the depressingdinernexttoourhouse. We’re both definitely diner people, and I love the romance of the empty diner/rain outside combo. This particular diner is usually filled with sad people having morning beers in silence, but the owners are nice and friendly and I’m a sucker for a 5$ breakfast. Plus they have a pretty decent jukebox, and use adorable MCM restaurantware. Sold!
I have my first day off in 14 days tomorrow. It’s supposed to rain, and I fully intend to indulge in my other favorite rainy day activities; Books, baths, sleeping in and not getting dressed till 4pm. Yessir, I’m a real worker bee…
