it’s always winter in my heart February 14, 2007

Posted by eatnorthamerica in things that are not quite things we know.

well, there’s snow now. I estimate more than a foot of snow piled up during the night. the roads are covered in snow downtown. cars are sliding and spinning, what fun!

it’s actually snowing inside my office right now, somehow. I think the wind is pushing the snow through minute gaps between the windows (obviously they’re shut, or my computer would have frozen by now) and their frames. very pretty, albeit slightly alarming. I would take a picture of how there’s a foot of snow piled up outside on the window itself, but alas, no camera today! I got a lift to work, thank fuck. 

I have pictures of my birthday cake to share with you, but alas. too lazy to find my camera. perhaps tonight.

what’s there to do in toronto for fun? February 5, 2007

I feel I should explain that there’s not a hell of a lot else to do when it’s -28C outside.

Anyway, I got really bored, so I threw some water on my balcony (obviously the bit that’s outside) walls/glass railing walls… whatever the hell you want to call that shit. it froze INSTANTLY, which I thought was pretty awesome. See now the water, rendered frigid in gravity’s heartless embrace, ripe with encapsulated filth.

It was so poetically moving that I did it to the rest of my balcony walls. That’s right, all six panels!

…… then I realised that this is the middle of fucking winter …it’s not going to go anywhere above zero for another two months

so……….. I guess my balcony’s going to look like shit for two months! GGPO.


on Saturday I invited my dear friend Michelle around and we went shopping for instant noodles and assorted stuff from a couple of Korean supermarkets in Small Korea (ok, Koreatown, whatever. It’s not much of a town if you ask me) because I thought it would be amusing to have an instant noodle party and try loads of different types of flavours or whatever (look, I told you I was bored).

what fun

^ should have tried that, but didn’t! also Michelle decided to stick with tried and tested noodlage. but come on… a potato noodle?! I’ll let you know how that turns out, I’m almost afraid to try lest the disappointment stings me too sore.

tasty shit!

it wasn’t much of a testing party because there were only two stomachs available to test shit out on. end of story. that shit in the picture above is the bomb though, I’ve had it before, and it’s good. There.

Balls to you. I bought a large sparkly ball from the Swatch store (actually, I like a lot of their designs, like Secret Code (yes! you can unpin the individual rings and play wear by numbers)) and got 10% off, woot! The girl who sold that to me was really sweet, actually. She kept trying to give me a discount on top of that. like – “do you work at eaton centre? if you do, I can give you another 15% off” “um.. nope” “do you have… friends who work here?” “well… um… nope!” Should I have lied? Was that an invitation to inveigle? So here I am, mired in moral quandary as firmly as the filth solidified upon my balcony. yep

And I haven’t even mentioned the egg… we’ll see what happens to that!
