Today, I went out for a late night dessert after coming home from dinner and dessert. It was the type of gloriously irresponsible indulgence I could only dream of when I was twelve. But I’m an adult now. And, for good measure, on my way out, I picked up a pistachio macaron to go that I ate on the walk home.
Anyway, I’m pleased to report we moved out of that old place into a new one which, in truth, is really an old place – being the apartment we stayed in last season. I’m pleased to report that the noise from the next-door construction is vastly improved given that work has progressed to a point several stories above our 7th floor digs. On the other hand, I stepped outside this afternoon and noticed a safety net covering the balcony –
I’m sure those errant cinder blocks will bounce right off it and fall harmlessly to the street level below.
For some reason, every time we pull out the suitcases, the dogs totally freak out. Bubba especially who, I can only assume thinks we’re going to leave him behind. Which probably explains why he always crawls into the luggage, presumably expecting us to pack him away as well.
In addition to moving, I also found time for my annual eye exam (at Akemi’s insistence) which I attended with my reading glasses (on Akemi’s insistence). I work on a computer A LOT. And I read A LOT. A couple of years ago, I was prescribed reading glasses which I never use: A) Because I don’t really need them and b) Because once I start wearing them, I’ll never go back. Also, I just don’t look good in glasses.
See what I mean?
Today, I leave you with this:
Which reminds me. I need to hit my Toronto comic shop (Dr. Comics in Kensington Market) to check out what’s new. I’m thinking this might be a good time to get back it. I presently have Saga and The Walking Dead on my TPB rotation. Any recommendations?
