My friend, Carmi, (http://carmicimicata.blogspot.com) has issues about the wait for orders at Starbucks. It's especially long when the high school kids are done for the day and come for a drink and monopolize all the tables for hours on end. This is my pet peeve. The same thing happens at Tim Hortons. In addition, business types have meetings and even interview for jobs. One Tim Horton's in the west end of the city has banned the high school kids from sitting and it turns out that this move is actually legal. Wish this move was city wide. And Carmi, a caramel macchiato takes the same time as a latte. Wouldn't you know that the highest calorie drink is now my favourite.
I cannot believe that it's been over a month since I last posted. I've run into a creative/communicative block. I'd better get it back soon - by next weekend, in fact, since Micheal deMeng is flying up to Toronto to give 2 workshops. I find myself intimidated - his work is so fabulous. Well, we'll see what happens.
Meanwhile all my supplies for the projects I want to do are strewn all over the living/dining room. Much is in plastic bags which Tayoh (one of my cats) licks constantly. She became a bag-licker since 2 years of age. She's now 6 and still licking.
The weather here is unseasonably hot. My building shut off our a/c and turned on the heat on Sept. 24. It's about 82F in the apartment and rising since it is now 30 degreesC outside and the humidex is 39C. ( sorry that my thermeter is in Fahrenheit and thus the inconsistency in jabbering about the weather). My internal thermostat just can't handle this. The leaves on the trees are refusing to change colour and the few maples that have started are sporting rusty burnt leaves. I think it's the lack of rain this summer. Everything is wonky. Including my hair. The humidity always converts my smoothing attempts to a mass of frizz resembling a wad of steel wool. Yuck, I hate it. I have to wait another 2 weeks before going to my hairdresser. I have more products than you can imagine claiming to stop the frizz. I've used them all to no avail. But they smell nice so I use each of them on a rotating basis.
