Earth Hour

A few weeks ago I read about Earth Hour and I marked it on my calendar because I really liked the concept and thought it would be cool to walk around the city in the dark.

A few of us met up at 8 to explore together. My first destination was walking down Bremner because I love the skyline of the financial district from there. Then we wandered up and made our way to Nathan Philip Square for the celebration.

It was there I got to see the big dipper. I was so excited! I can't remember the last time I've seen it.

We stayed and listened to Nelly Furtado and the Philosopher Kings then wandered back home.

I insisted on walking by work and then through the little Metro Hall park because another place I love the skyline is by Roy Thomson hall.

I am happy with how the pictures turned out and you can see them here.

Vertically Challenged

I've begun to realize I have a very skewed sense of height. If I'm less than half a foot shorter than somebody, I feel as if I'm almost as tall. If it's one or two inches shorter, I actually think I'm taller. I think my brain just isn't used to being almost eye level with people so it gets confused.

Iron Chef

Today at work I was defending my love for macaroni with butter (okay, and lots of salt). I brought it in for lunch one day and they haven't let it go yet. Alan and Martha both tried it, Alan agreed it's delicious, but Martha was not impressed at all.

Today I came up with a theory of why macaroni with butter is so good. Bread and butter is good, so replace one carb with another and you get macaroni and butter.

Martha was trying to ruin this theory by suggesting other combinations with macaroni that wouldn't work, like say jam and macaroni. Then after she said that she realized that did sound kind of good.

She tried to argue you wouldn't eat bread and butter for supper, but I do. Grandma's toast with butter and a little bit of peanut butter.

This was her next inspiration. I wouldn't eat peanut butter and macaroni. Or so she thought. I think that sounds good. The peanut butter would be all melty and warm. I told her I would try this for breakfast on the weekend, since toast with peanut butter is great for breakfast.

If I enjoy it, this means my theory is correct and she can no longer mock my macaroni and butter.

I've asked other people if they think macaroni with peanut butter would be good, and I've gotten positive responses. Okay... responses, plural, may be exaggerating, but one person did agree it sounds yummy.

Speaking of exaggerating, I've recently been told I act very exaggerated while drunk, but I don't know if me being drunk is really a requirement. Holly just asked if I needed anything sewed because she had to sew on a button and when she said she'd sew on my button for me I got realllly excited. That's just so cool. Thanks again!!!
