Well today is the day I get my birthday present Costco fanatics!
We’re off to see the Toronto Maple leafs! And by the time you all read this the game will be over and hopefully the leafs are the victors!!! (to be clear, they were not… the seats were awesome though!!!)
I did however manage to sneak into Costco this morning first thing and do my shopping and get all the sweet deals for you such as…
Canada post stamps – 81.45 for 100 stamps. At the request of a reader I put these up here. Thanks for suggesting I do that Tim and Wendy!
It was a busy morning, Costco shopping, packing a bag or two, making sure the cats were OK, then it was in the Escape and Go! I did however use the time on the road to do my editing of the sales… (and be the Spotify D.J. The Bee Gees were played of course.)
Never done that before, but it certainly made the trip seem a lot shorter! And I do have to say I’ve been enjoying heading out to Costco 1st thing in the morning lately ( I guess the last 4 posts have all been done on busy holiday days and well today isn’t a holiday per say but it’s technically my birthday again today… So that counts as a holiday, I think anyways!), the morning vibe in Costco is a bit different than say the 1:30-2:00 vibe. or especially the 5:00 vibe.
Speaking of the holidays, we took our Christmas tree down on Sunday… And really, it was time… I mean, I think if I shook it for a few minutes it would have turned to powder and vanished. Instead of that I struggled to get 6 strings of lights off of it and was left with the spoils of war.
It’s like it had a beard, and then I cut it off… Should’ve made a wreath out of that. Next year… next year…
Well As I said we were in Toronto for the Leafs game (that didn’t go well, but man it was so much fun!!!) We also ate at a fantastic Mexican place called La Carnita, which indeed was fantastic, but super busy… Reservations recommended for sure. Then after the game we went to a jazz bar called the Rex where my partner worked maybe 15 or 16 years ago. It was awesome! There was a fantastic jazz band playing actual good jazz music, and we caught up with an old friend who still managed the place… Good music, good company and good martinis… The suicide wings though, meh… They were perhaps a “hot wing” by other standards. But that’s ok, I have pretty high heat standards.
The night has now ended, we took the subway back to Union Station and are now settling into the hotel room (that we changed twice for various reasons)… I feel like the leafs did in the 3rd period, done… we’re done, pack ‘er up and get to bed. Actually that sounds like a plan!
Good night from Toronto folks!
