The Cosmic Perspective

Hi, hello. Here are some updates on my exciting life:

-I am a terrible Canadian and didn't watch the hockey game. But I was on Bay street which is right next to Yonge, which got closed down because of all the partying and chaos in the streets, and it sounded pretty crazy.
-Instead on Sunday night I went to see Shutter Island with Edward. The movie was thoroughly fucked up and I liked it. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be, but Edward got pretty scared. I mean he was clinging onto my arm for like half the movie.
-Thanks to Kara I have discovered the gym in Hart House, which is awesome and free for students. No more running around in the freezing cold!
-Tomorrow is my astronomy midterm, then I am all done with midterms. My last final exam is on April 15, right before my birthday.
-I went to a pub night a few days ago with some friends but all they wanted to do was take annoying pictures for facebook and stuff. We hung out in one of the lower house common rooms when we came back and they had 2 laptops out with facebook going and I wanted to go out and actually do stuff but everything was about facebook, it was stupid and I missed you guys.
-I got new glasses, they are sick.

Wtf, raccoons, why are you so scary. And why are there two of these pictures, which I found like a month apart:

Today I went grocery shopping.
How to go grocery shopping like Erin:
-Feel hungry. Realize you have no food because last time you went to the dining hall you forgot to steal stuff in tupperware. Decide to go to Valu-Mart to buy some food to keep in your room.
-Wander around Valu-Mart. Consider buying different things, but put them all back. Decide that you can just get food from the dining hall for free next time you go.
-Go to the drugstore next door and look at nail polish.
-Feel distressed by how much more expensive nail polish is in Canada than in the US.
-Go to Indigo (Canadian Borders) and pick out random magazines. Sit down and go through them one by one for a long time but don't buy any of them. Go to the music section and read about Bob Dylan for half an hour.
-Feel hungry again. Go across the street to Tim Hortons and eat soup and a donut. Go back to res.

I need to start taking more pictures cause I haven't really had any lately. That's pretty much it.
Bye!

maybe edward was not scared and was just clinging because he digs you. just a thought. I'm sorry to hear that your glasses are sick - maybe you can find a glasses-doctor who can make them better. love, dad

Hi Erin,
You sound like me as a young lass doing some shopping in the city. It's so easy to get sidetracked!

By the way...you left your scrabble necklace here. Jay want to wear it to town.
