Well, it’s been a frustrating 48 hours where practically everything that could have gone wrong did – or came pretty damn close. The final straw was the closing on our new place which the seller’s lawyer dragged out until five minutes before they were official in breech, thus ensuring I wouldn’t be able to get the place cleaned or internet installed until after this weekend. Thanks a lot.
On the other hand, there were a few bright spots…
Finally tried Halo Top’s birthday cake flavor and I must admit it’s probably my favorite of their entire line. It perfectly captures that grocery chain fakey vanilla cake and icing flavor. And I mean that in the best way possible.
Oooh, check out the ships adorning the Scotiabank Theatre where Akemi and I took in Deadpool 2 the other day. I enjoyed it, but preferred the original. Akemi absolutely loved it and can’t stop talking about it.
Check out this interesting piece of artwork.
Swing by Le Gourmand on Spadina Ave. for their frozen custard accompanied by a piece of their city-best chocolate chip cookie. Wash it down with a hot mocha.
Thanks to Dark Matter fan D. Dolphin for this veritable treasure trove of hot sauces. Looks like I’ve got my work cut out for me this summer.
Also included in the swag box, a strawberry hat for Akemi that fits Lulu just fine.
Also, a pug-themed winter hat for Akemi that shall henceforth be known as “Joe’s thinking cap”.
I lose Akemi to King Street’s new abacus art installation.
Finally – Happy National Doughnut Day! I celebrated by swinging by Krispy Kreme to purchase an original glazed only to learn they were giving them away for free! What a time to be alive!
