1- I know it is completely lame to talk about the weather so much, but it is supposed to be spring. The world is supposed to start looking like this:
|first flowers of last spring|
|last spring, on the way to Boston|
2- After a nice and sunny (though somewhat brisk) easy run yesterday after work, I met the lovely lu (over at the things i know) for dinner. It was a great catch up and I particularly enjoyed her story about the Montreal cab driver missing the restaurant and therefore throwing the car into reverse and backing up until he found it. Meanwhile (since I suggested a place that is in sort of a warehouse district...but it is also the design district I think- lots of decorators and the like around there), she's thinking "not only is he driving in reverse, but where ARE we???" Note to self- warn someone when the location of the restaurant is somewhat unexpected.
3- Two songs on the radio have made me smile and brought me back to other times today. The first- the Superman song:
The second is "You Can Call me Al" by Paul Simon. Apparently- it was one of the Queen Mother's favourites. She was also a big fan of the old Jamaican ska music and had all sorts of old vinyl records. Can an old lady be a hipster?
Oh and a sort of fourth thing: Today is your last day to enter to win a Road ID! Head on over to the post to enter.
