Vanity

It’s disgustingly hot and humid in Toronto today. The only thing keeping it from being completely unbearable is the cool breeze blowing through. It hasn’t stopped the humidity from over-taking my hair though. I have a Farrah Fawcett type-do happening. Instead of curling softly against my cheeks, the layers surrounding my face have lifted up and out, as if I’m about to take flight. Sadly, nothing can control them. I suppose I’ll have to be an Angel for the day.

Sugar

On Sunday I had an enormous craving for a Mint Oreo Blizzard from Dairy Queen. Recognizing it as a hormonal blip, I hoped it would pass (and honestly the only thing keeping me from going out to get one was that I didn’t want to get out of my comfy clothes). But today it came back with a vengeance, and sadly there is no DQ within walking distance of work. There is however a Cold Stone Creamery at the nearest Tim Horton’s, so I popped in and tried to recreate a mint oreo blizzard. The result? Not bad, but not the same. It hit the right spot though, so here’s hoping I won’t need the real thing!

Reading

I find it impossible to read my regular genre of choice lately. That would be the romantic thriller. I just can’t handle how un-realistic the romantic liaisons are. Call it being jaded, but they just won’t do. So I’ve developed a love of James Rollins, who writes these fantastic adventure novels. I picked up one at lunch, called Deep Fathom. The jacket indicates the story of the destruction of the earth, driving the hero underwater where he discovers a lost civilization. Perfect!
