Last night I went out for dinner with Catherine (or CathRON), my old pal from my days of working at Dairy Queen in high school, and the owner of this beast.
Who had a haircut and now looks like this:
Such a beautiful kitty cat.
Anyway, I haven’t seen Catherine since our Ethiopian lunch last year, the day I also showed up at my other friend’s baby shower on the wrong day (that was a fun time), and it was really good to catch up and tell each other all our stories.
It was also really good to eat. We went to this Mexican restaurant on King and John in Toronto called Milagro, which I had never been to before, but Catherine had told me it was possibly the best Mexican food she had ever eaten. I do love a good taco, so I was excited.
And I do not think she was wrong. Soon after we sat down at a table on the patio, the servers (who were dressed in plaid, I liked it) came over with chips, salsa, and possibly the best guacamole I have ever eaten.
It was soo creamy delicious. I wanted to just get a spoon and eat it by itself. Or shove my entire face in that bowl. And I am not even usually that big of a guacamole fan, so that is saying something.
It was also Sangria Thursday, so although I usually like to pint it up on patios, I switched it up and snagged one of those.
And it was gooooood.
The menu really overwhelmed me because there were just way too many selections and I am really not very Mexican food savvy. It was a very stressful decision. But Catherine was raving on and on about how amazing the burritos were, so in the end she swayed me, and I chose the Tinga Chicken burrito. I did not regret my choice.
It was big and spicy and chickeny and packed with deliciousness. Good stuff right there.
I was really impressed with Milagro. If you live near Toronto, you should go there.
In other news, the video of the piggyback fail has nearly 25,000 views on YouTube and has been on Good Morning America, Canada AM, and apparently some Irish TV show as well. I am sorry to keep blathering on about this, but this is crazy to me. I had no idea it was going to be this popular. NO IDEA.
I mean, I knew it was funny, but I thought maybe it was just funny if you were there… I never, ever expected thousands of people to see my underwear and then talk about it, so it is such a weird thing. And of course that is what most of the comments are about. Or they are just insanely inappropriate, because people are ridiculous and weird, as I’m sure we all know (I just google imaged “people are weird” to see if I could find a pic to prove my point, and don’t do that. Don’t).
Anyway, it’s a good thing I don’t really embarrass easily and I am okay for the most part if you want to talk about my appearance. Surprisingly, I am finding that the only comments that are bothering me are the ones that insult my intelligence. I’m hearing a lot of “What a stupid idea!”, and I get that. For sure I get why people would think maybe it was not the smartest decision. But it does make me want to defend myself. I don’t think it was a stupid idea. Even after how it turned out, I still don’t think it was a stupid idea, and I’d probably do it again. We practiced! I would not have done it if I thought I was going to fail in such a spectacular manner. Or maybe I would, I do not know. But I really thought it was going to work and be funny. Okay fine, it was kinda dumb of me to leave my heels on (I did practice with heels on though, FYI), but I could lift him. And what’s the worst thing that happened? We fell, I got scraped up a bit, and the world sees my blurry pink underwear. No one is badly hurt. All is good.
You know why it also was not a dumb decision? It’s probably the best story of my life. So, there is always that.
Anyway, that’s all. Just wanted to say that. I do not know why. But I am out for the weekend, and I hope you guys all have a great one!
