Back from the centre of the universe

Trip to Toronto lots of fun. Drove down Sat am (well I think we arrived around 3). Collapse )

Our room wasn't ready when we hit TO, Collapse )

One of the reasons we stayed at this hotel, other than the really great rate, was that it is one of two that we have found in Toronto with an indoor waterslide, a big hit with hubby. So into the water we splashed. Hit the hot tub for a bit, but the chlorine really gets to me after a while, so headed back to the room to get ready (was hoping for a nap but no such luck). All showered, we headed out a tad too early, as we weren't sure how far away the theatre was. Turns out is was a few blocks up Yonge, but we still arrived with time to spare. Luckily there was a Starbucks handy, so I got my fix.

Hit the hay around midnight. Had wanted to go check out some of the Pride celebrations, but whatever I checked out by peering down the sidestreets appeared to have miles-long lines (I refuse to stand in line to go to a bar), and really not something hubby would be into.

Sunday we were up at the crack of dawn (inhumanly early according to Willy and Stella) but we got to pack a lot in. Headed to Fran's for breaky, yummy banana pancakes! Then headed to the CN Tower, as baby sis had never been up to the observation deck. Collapse )

Back on the ground, we meandered back to the hotel, grabbed the car, headed back to Queen St. and stopped at this great little hole-in-the-wall roti place called Ghandi. Yummy Mutter Paneer Roti, and it was the size of my head! I ate half of it, and brought the rest home.

Everyone made it home happy, and a bit tired, and I dashed to the kennel to grab the dude. Got there with 20 min to spare. Very happy to have him home, and to be home.

I am so bad.

Hubby is out at Costco, and I've called and asked him to bring back Dairy Queen! mmm - Smartie Blizzard!

For my American Friends - Smarties are something you would want to put in ice-cream in Canada (actually anywhere else in the world I think - http://www.nestle.com/Our_Brands/Chocolate_Confectionery/Smarties/). They are not the sugar pills you are used to (we call those Rockets) but rather chocolate with a candy coating. No not M&M's, much better, and they will melt in your hands.

Again - mmmm - Smartie Blizzard.

Edit: Not only did he bring back the Smartie one, but Chocolate Chip Cookie dough too! That was my fav before they took it off the menu. Apparently enough people wanted it back *g* mmmm- chocolate chip cookie dough blizzard.

Okay, so Reese Witherspoon's teeth really bug me, but man, Legally Blonde is tickling my funnybone tonight!
