This Is A Surprise!
22.05.2007 23 °C
So I kind of realised that it has been a while since I last wrote on here so trying to recap on what I did and nothing much really. Starting with Saturday [12th] and finally recovered from a night out with Andreas in the downtown region and got up to meet Hilary who just got back from Paris from her exchange so we sat in Starbucks for a few hours just chilling and having a laugh and going on about her travels to places whilst away in Paris. Three hours later, I had to run to the LCBO to grab a bottle of wine to take round to Pam's who decided to make me dinner, which was nice of her and delish. Also went to watch Spiderman 3 with her at the Rainbow cinema. Now Spiderman 3, I thought was different to the other two movies and to be honest not as good but don't get me wrong it is a good film but just not as good as I hoped. Best moment was when ... As if I'm going to tell you what happens!!
Monday was like any other Monday...long and boring! Tuesday was full of surprises for two reasons. Firstly I was at St. Lawrence market with Dave Hill having yes fish and chips for lunch but coming back up the road to go to work and some dude runs past us and then a few seconds later we hear another man screaming "Stop that man!!!". Not realising at first what happened we thought nothing of it and then when we saw the dude drop a wallet and money on the floor we decided to chase after him for a few blocks as he still had a few hundred dollars on him even without the wallet and small amount he dropped, which I assume was to slow us down. So chasing him around the area he turns down a side street, which I thought I could cut him off by going down another street to block the way and the rest of the group followed him. Never saw anyone again after 20 minutes. So secondly we had magical moments at work which consisted of magic tricks from Monica and myself with bits and pieces and mainly me with a deck or two of cards. Also I finally get hold of Dad to wish him a happy birthday at 11pm [UK Times] after trying all day but no luck.
Wednesday was the usual TKD day with work but with the kids screaming at me to take pictures of them by fountains on the walk there and back. Wednesday night I went to O'Grady's to meet Hilary again to watch her boyfriend perform (he is in a band with a few friends who are actually quite good) and for some free pool too.
Thursday night was meant to be a night at the Madison but getting there after 9pm they rejected me because after 9pm it becomes a 21s and over bar. Pain in the backside at times I tell you! So screwed up plans meeting friends that night.
Friday was a movie night at work so nothing to do there apart from Pam and I were going through pictures to sort out for my activites over the final few weeks at work. Then hit the downtown again with Andreas for a birthday party I got invited to by Hilary and Anastassia (Hilary's friend) to Republik for drunken madness. Turns out it was such a good night and Andreas and I at around 3am grabbing some food at a restaurant we just couldn't finish but it was so nice what we had.
Saturday night was another party for David but up in Mississauga for Josh (Tash's brother (if you didn't know already Tash is Craig's girlfriend and if you didn't know Craig, he is a guy who lived on Louie's floor in res and Louie is an exchange student from MMU...just thought I'd clear a few things). Anyways so big party in the basement, which we ended up crashing there and then waking up on the Sunday was Mum's birthday which again I couldn't get hold of so ended up leaving a message on Dad's answering machine but turns out Mum didn't get it in time so called on Monday to wish her a happy belated as well. A few of us went to play hockey for three hours in the sun. Was my first game of hockey (on foot as no one had size 13 roller blades) and picked up 5 points whoo! (1 goal and 4 assists). Anyways had a blast there before Craig dropped me off back in Toronto and then it was straight to Mick E Fynns for drinks with Pam.
Monday was Victoria Day here in Canada and so it was a bank holiday so yay for me having time off work! Met Pam later on that day to meet some of her family who were in the area for a visit and ended up having a meal with them and saw the cutest twins ever. Then when Pam and I left we went to grab a Tim Horton's and then go to my rooftop to watch the fireworks going off all over the city. Turns out the rest of Wycik had the same idea! The roof was packed with people watching them go off especially around the beaches area where apparently people with a load of money live which would explain the huge firework displays going off.
So that is the round up for the last 10 days here in Toronto and I promise (I know I keep saying this) to keep up and update this site more often.
Anyways off to tidy my room...again
