Bidding Adieu to the TAP

Goodbye Sign! (Well you may be there for a while yet)

Farewell Booze!

Arivaderchi noisy Bubble Hockey table!

Check ya later tacky Kiss Statues!

I should have morned this loss when it actually happened- which was a week ago BUT I guess I haven't felt much of a blow from the TAP closing down yet..... But I must say the place holds a special place in my heart...
I met Corey there, for Chrissakes.

Although I have not spent much time there in the past while - I wanted to give the TAP a proper send off.

2 years of Office Bliss

It's my 2 year anniversary at work and

My boss brought in Cinnabons!

And because of the below post- I am thoroughly enjoying the sweet savoryness of it all!

I can't sleep at night

I tossed and turned last night, literally.

I am not sure why I do this- Wake up between the hours of 3 and 5 AM and "think".

I think about the past... bad things that have happened. I think about the things that worry me in the present, and I think about the possibility of more bad things to come in the future.
Why am I such a Negative Nancy between those hours??

On the upside its FUN NIGHT with this and this and Fio and Nina. And this, I think :)
Should be fun. I hope I am awake enough to entertain you all with my Zerbackian ways.

I am making Margarita Pizza!

Corey has been in the studio lots lately, when not at work... Here's two new pieces that I am afraid to see him sell because secretly (well, not so secretly) I just want to adorn our entire apartment with the cool stuff he's made:

NICE ones, eh buds?

in healthier times...

Here we are....

At Colleen and Derek's Stag and Doe.
Playing Crown and Anchor with my sweet bubble bum boy.

Their wedding is this coming Saturday.

I hope I am well by then and more so-
I hope my nose is freed of the salve I have had to apply profusely for the past three days.


When you are sick and lacking an appetite but KNOW you need to eat to function- here's a wee trick:

Heaven in a bowl

Monday Sickness

....Thought I had some major allergies going on. It all started on Friday when I was cleaning / packing up my desk at work (we are moving one floor down). I KNOW that I am allergic to dust. And the dust just GOT to me. What made it worse is the next morning C and I got up and cleaned the apartment- as we had some company coming (sister, Bolt, Jenny). THAT was the straw that broke the camel's back. I am talking severe snottin', wicked watery eyes, itchy etc.
So Saturday night consisted of the 5 (6 including feline) of us hangin out, eating a load of snackfood and making HOT AND SOUR SOUP. Yum.
The soup helped but the next day I was still really affected with this allergy disease.

C and I had a nice Sunday which consisted of HIGHPARK - the leashfree zone. Think creepy dog watchers who don't own or bring their own dog (like the possible kiddy-diddlers of the canine world)...

Oh and we also checked out the Bison, the cows, the sheep-like animals and others that can stand the winter cold in the HighPark "zoo".
PS Emu's apparently can withstand it.

Anyways, we also went out and got me some allergy meds.
Now.... There are two ways in life that I resemble a TODDLER; the way I have to mix water in with juice I drink AND my vulnerability to certain medications. We picked up some Children's Benadryl with a delicious grape flavour. Let me tell you- even the dose you give to someone who weighs in at- hmmm I don't know- 25
pounds- KNOCKS the Zerbinator straight on her ass!

So this brings me to today. In my pajamas. Hair looking like a scene from Something About Mary, with a Full On sickness. (Perhaps it wasn't allergies afterall).

THe good news? I have a warm tuxedo cat, hot tea and some Oil of Oregano. OH and lots of snacks. Healthy ones at that.
My dinner last night? One avocado, two toasted mini-pitas, some carrot and celery stix and a shot of tzatziki to boot. Ok ok and a few pieces of marble cheddar (I would make the worst ever Vegan).

Off to the couch.
Hoping to be well enough tomorrow to go into work and set up my new digs!

Well, Willie came out this morning and saw his shadow. it means 6 more weeks of winter. For anyone living in South Western Ontario- this is good news. We really couldn't ask for more. I mean, come on people- sometimes our winter's stretch out into May for Chrissakes!

This year mom and Pete decided to become sniwbirds and make their way to warmer temperatures for the entire month of February. Therefore- No Willie Festivities for this guy.

I'll miss the lame parade.
