There's a (relatively) new restaurant in the Thompson Hotel in Toronto that has the most eloquent dining area I've seen in ages. Not only is it a gorgeous place to eat lunch, but the food was spectacular.
There's also an added on bakery section to the restaurant that handles their to-go pastries. The macarons are ridiculously good - and that's coming from a person who doesn't really enjoy or understand macarons but they are so, so good. I will definitely return here as soon as possible. Thanks for introducing me to this place, Marla!
Sometimes you have to post photos of babes. Sometimes those babes are your brother and nephew.
I love swimming, you know this fact. But the ocean? You will RARELY* find me in there. I'm here to convince you to join me in this opinion.
Reasons To Stay Away
- Dangerous creatures inhabit the ocean. So, as an example, if a shark lived in the house next door to me, I would not casually walk into their home, mess around with their belongings and then expect NOT to be eaten alive. They live there. I do not.
- Cleanliness. There has to be a crazy amount of urine and feces floating around in these oceans, I don't think I would be able to handle the statistic itself, so thank God I don't know it.
- Ocean night swimming is just a scary idea. Does it not look horrifying in movies? When you can't see to the bottom? God, that's horrifying. The only good thing associated with night swimming is that R.E.M. song. THAT'S IT.
- The movie Open Water.
- Humans are not born with gills or any sort of apparatus to stay beneath water for longer than a minute or so. WHY DO WE NOT TAKE THIS AS A HINT TO STAY THE HELL OUT OF WATER? I do not know.
C'mon, those are some valid points, right? Maybe just think about it. Or just tell me that you'll stay out of it. I'll sleep a lot better if I hear you say that.
*Past ocean experiences have included instances of peer pressure, curiosity and teaching my boyfriend how to swim on our first vacation together. But never again, I vow!
Where the hell do women keep their nail polish? In a drawer beside the bed? A washroom cabinet? Why the hell are they always so hidden? I've wanted to proudly display my colours for years now and I've been looking for one of these organizers for EONS. And look how gorgeous!
Absolutely have to get one of these immediately.
I'm not suggesting that everyone needs to buy one of these since that's insane, but a board like this seems like it might be fairly easy to assemble yourself. And once the people in your family start having babies, you'll kind of need to have something like this somewhere in your house to keep track of everyone. Such a good idea.
Can’t tell you how many times I have this thought.
