The Story Thus Far...
I had an Orlando Bloom dream last night. Nothing in comparison to the Vince Vaughn sex dreams that I am prone to having, but I did get to meet him. He was in a little pub back in my home town and I walked in with some friends, and was like "Holy Sh*t, that's Orlando Bloom". Anyway, unlike the SDOS party last week were I could drum up nary a nerve to speak to my mini-Hugh Laurie, I marched right up to the adorable Metro and started chatting. He was super nice, very friendly and invited us all to have some drinks. Sigh, he was just like I knew he would be. There was nothing sexual about the dream, just a bunch of friends sitting around, boozing it up. Good times. Sufficed to say, that gave the old girl a bit of a bounce to her step this morning!
And then there's the weather. Crap, some people would say. Grey, dismal, rainy. I, however, am loving it. Reminds me of home. I like being reminded of home sometimes. It's also a nice break from the insanely hot heat wave that TO has been experiencing of late.
So where have we gotten to? Orlando dream, coolish weather... Ye Olde 168 Symington arrived just as I got to the stop, and a seat to boot. The TTC arrived just as I got to my little spot on the platform. Subway riders will totally be able to relate to knowing exactly where on the platform you need to get on to make your life easier when you get off. The Yonge/Bloor subway station is a son of a bitch at any time of day, but especially in the morning. Not being a fish lover, I certainly do not take well to being the one salmon swimming upstream in the face of the oncoming torrent of southbound commuters... Then the subway going north arrived once again just as I reached my desired platform location... again a seat... and then lo and behold, an adorable picture of Orlando in the newspaper. OK, so it was talking about him getting cozy with Jude Law's ex at some party... Like, whatever. She is like so, in, like, rebound mode... And who better to make Jude all pissy than another cute Metro. Orlando won't fall for it though. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
And what of my peeps? Hope y'all had a super morning too.
PS... just had word that the liquor store strike that was due to start tomorrow has been averted... Wow, could any more good things have happened this morning? A long weekend without some drinks on the patio would have been a long weekend... well... without any drinks on the patio.
