Quotes of the week

"Sweetie, you are in the wrong neighbourhood to be ordering a poutine 'straight-up'"
- A flamboyant waiter to me, after I made a faux-pas when ordering in the gay village.

"When a chick says 'maybe', you say 'yes'."
- A loudmouthed guy in Harveys at 2 am after spitting on the floor and rubbing the spit around with his foot. He was 100% class.

Me: Yep, so one more year or so of school and I guess it's time for the real world, eh?
Dad: Well, if that's what you're planning.
Me: I'm just really sick of people referring to the "real world." It's so condescending, as if what other people are doing or working on isn't real enough.
Dad: Don't listen to any of them then. After a while you realize that everyone has their own "real" world, some being more or less real than the others.
Me: Well, that's refreshing.

Me trying to skate with hockey skates for the first time. Pathetic.

Aw London is AWESOME! You have to go to Camden market for me and get some pics, cause I didn't manage to take any when I was there. I'm glad the flat and family are great, and keep me posted about your new London life.
