On The Day Spent in Toronto

The Knitting Statue

We spent yes­ter­day in Toron­to. First, we went to vis­it our friends who recent­ly had a baby. The baby had a big poop while I was hold­ing him in my arms. It was kind of stinky. It’s been ages since I had to smell baby poo. Thank god for dia­pers that don’t leak.

At lunchtime, we went to this mid­dle east­ern fast food restau­rant where both we and the restau­rant got our orders con­fused and Troy end­ed up hav­ing to eat stuff he didn’t nec­es­sar­i­ly like which he fin­ished any­way and I had to eat a big meal which I felt bad for not fin­ish­ing.

After lunch, the three of us (Troy, the baby’s dad, and I) went to the new­ly ren­o­vat­ed Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). I thought 3 hours would be enough time to see every­thing in the gallery but I was wrong. We would’ve need­ed at least anoth­er hour, but unfor­tu­nate­ly, we had to leave because we had to meet a friend at a Chi­nese restau­rant for din­ner.

I still wasn’t super hun­gry after the big lunch episode but I wished I had been. We ordered a lot of yum­my stuff and I real­ly want­ed to eat more but my tum­my was so full so I just end­ed up watch­ing the rest of the group eat all the dumplings and pan­cakes.

Our next des­ti­na­tion was the gallery where the group art show I was part of was held. It was the clos­ing night. We came half an hour ear­ly so we offered to help pre­pare things for the event before try­ing to fin­ish a quiz in order to enter a con­test with a $500 prize. Sev­en of our friends (includ­ing the baby) came to the clos­ing event and one of them won the $500! Lucky her.

Around 9pm we went back to our friends’ apart­ment to hang out more with them and the baby and have some hot choco­late before we head­ed back home. We had to dri­ve through the rain and snow to get home but the roads were sur­pris­ing­ly still in good con­di­tion. We got home after mid­night and went to bed and slept in.

I’ve been feel­ing blah all day today. I exper­i­ment­ed with some pho­tog­ra­phy tech­niques to dis­tract my mind from think­ing about things that would make me cry and the pho­to above was one of the results. Cheesy or cool? You be the judge.
