Things I Have Googled Today:
1. What is the flavour of Cap’n Crunch?
2. Lyrics to the theme song from Being Erica.
3. Lyrics to Running Bear.
4. Are narwhals real?
5. Lyrics to Mack the Knife.
6. Google Maps: Distillery District to Golden Turtle.
7. Lyrics to Desperado.
8. If I can hear every noise being made in the corridor outside my apartment, can everyone walking past my apartment hear me singing inside?
Okay, so I didn’t actually look up number eight, but I wish I knew the answer. Right now, I’m moderately scared that the next time I step outside my front door I’ll be clobbered with a saucepan for Disturbing The Peace.
But hey, at least I haven’t been singing anything by Taylor Swift or that John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt ditty, right?
Anyhoodle, enough about that. Here are some recent Glimpses Of Toronto.
In Australia, our trees have real birds in them. In Toronto, the trees house upside-down roly-poly birds made of papier-mâché and/or plastic. (I couldn’t quite tell.)
Delicious Balzac coffee with creamy raw cashew milk made by the wondrous Lisa.
No big deal. Just some Lego people on the subway. Back to your day with you.
Except it was a big deal, because these costumes fo’ serious fit together into a cohesive Lego masterpiece and it was amazing. Thank you for being awesome, Toronto.
Almost as awesome as the aforementioned Lego people is Canada’s obsession with dill pickle as a flavour. We already know I adore pickles, so it didn’t take much for Mr Orville Redenbacher to convince me to buy his Dill Pickle Gourmet Popcorn.
And lo! It was good. Though sadly not vegan. But still good. Yet why must dill pickle flavouring include milk solids? I should start my own dairy-free pickle snacks company. The end.
The sequel to this photo. Yes, that is a drag queen twice my size. Yes, that is a slice of buttered toast in my hand. Yes, that is a giant lipstick V on my forehead, and yes, it stands for what you think it stands for. You see, Lisa ratted me out as someone who had never before attended a Rocky Horror Picture Show Shadow Cast screening.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: thank you for being awesome, Toronto.
