Take THAT, Vince Carter!

Wednesday evening I went to a basketball game with my pal Maria. She got 4 $200 seats. (Row 5!) Amazingly, she asked me to invite 2 other people. At first I couldn’t find anyone to go, and then all of a sudden four could go all at once. Jeez, people! I had to break my pal, Tom’s li’l heart and I turned down a guy from my office. In the end I went with Maria, Greg (the biggest Raptors fan I know) (wait, the only one) and my little brother, Jesse. We had a super blast!
How much do I love/hate that the menu says “When ready to order, please wave this menu to attract the attention of your server.” Gross! It would be much more entertaining if the menu was printed on the side of a flare gun.
This weekend is my Boy’s 32nd birthday. How adorable is it that he wanted to go to Spadina House?! (pronounced Spadeena) If you don’t know what Spadina House is, look it up and go. It’s lovely.
That’s about all I’ve got for now. I hope this was enough, Naked Knitress! Hee hee…

I love you too, Coronation Street

Today is one of those days where you can't get warm. Even indoors you feel chilly. God bless beautiful old houses.
Toronto was a city built with brick. I love the old buildings downtown. Even the warehouses are works of art. I've always wanted to live in a old loft building at the bottom of the city;with a wooden gate on the freight elevator and open beam ceilings. They exist, but I'll never have one. Too many people see condos instead of valuable and refurbishable old gems.
I suppose I should start getting ready to go. Thanksgiving awaits!
Autumn is full of warmth, it's not in the air, but it's everywhere else. Warm blankets, hearty root vegetables, knit scarves and reading in cozy chairs. Autumn is a time when you can go out for a crisp walk and come home to a snuggly night in. I love it.
I'm going to go collect some leaves for my mom's harvest basket. Gourds, garlic, onions and a couple of apples. I'm going to add something else, but I haven't decided what. Hope she likes it.

so this is christmas

I suppose I should say something meaningful for my first blog's first blog.
Hmm... Deep thoughts, eh?

If you ever fall off the Sears Tower, just go real limp, because maybe you'll look like a dummy and people will try to catch you because, hey, free dummy.
