"I thought it would help you to wake up happy, " he said. "Instead you woke up homicidal." Which, of course, made me laugh so I suppose it worked after all. We then spent the morning belting out various lyrics from the song until it was time to take Andrew to school.
After dropping him off I dashed home so I could get at least a little time on the bike. 45 mins of sweatfest was kinda fun. Then it was off to...
A couple of days ago a maple toffee pulled out a crown I loathe and despise so I went to a local dentist to get it put back in.
It was lunchtime after the appt. and I was hungry and nowhere near home. And here is where the bummer ends and the happy begins.
I squealed in delight when I saw it. And guess what? The HOT sign was on!!
I got six doughnuts - Halloween ones, of course, and one hot one to shove in my gob immediately. I must have impressed the lady behind the counter with my excitement or something, as she gave me another hot one for free. SCORE!! I ate that immediately too.
Halloween/Ghostbusters doughnuts plus a "caramel crunch" one and minus the two hot ones which I'd already consumed.
I went to Future Shop - which is like the Canadian Best Buy. I have been looking for yurbuds with volume control for stinkin' WEEKS to no avail. And guess what? This particular Future Shop had 'em. Well alright!! I grabbed two pairs as they are excessively difficult to find. I think they're discontinuing the style or something, which blows. One of the pairs (the red one) was on sale. SCORE! I would have bought two red pairs but it appears, after much research by the Future Shop employees, that my red pair were the last ones available in the entire province.
THEN!!!!!!(I know! The excitement never ends.)
I turned on Hurontario to go home...and ended up going the wrong way. I was driving along happily listening to The History of Rome podcast ...again... (Hadrian has just died, thank goodness, and Antoninus Pius just became Emperor. Which means it won't be long before my beloved Marcus Aurelius is on the throne.) vaguely thinking, "Huh. I didn't think Burnhamthorpe was this far away" when all of a sudden I hit Brampton. Whooops.
You'd think this was a bad thing, and at first I was all, "Oh bugger". But then I recognized where I was and thought, "Hold up, isn't that cupcake store around here?"
Yes. Yes it was.
I had heard about Cristina's Tortina Shop when we very first found out we were moving to Canada. I determined to hunt it down...which I did, several times. Unfortunately they were always either closed or sold out. This time, however, they were OPEN! And they had...
Awwww yeah, baby, get in ma belleh.
What with the cupcakes and the doughnuts I'm going to be on a sugar high tonight. It's a good job I got on the bike, eh?
Here is Mary with Taylor.
Pretty much the sweetest ladies ever. See what I did there?
So anyway, what a fun day, eh? I rode the bike, got the stupid awful crown back in my mouth, bought a Krispy Kreme or seven, found the headphones I've been searching for forever, and bought the cupcakes I've been after for 8 months. Life's pretty good.
All I need now is to find drymax socks. I simply cannot find them in Canada and all my old ones have holes in and I miss them so much.
Party on, Garth!! =)
