I went for a walk.
Me, the smoky bastard who used to drive around the corner to go to the store instead of marching the twelve steps it would have taken.
Well, not any more.
After waking up and spending a little time surfing - making up for lost time in the Dark Ages of Faye's house - I realized that I don't live in the frozen wasteland of Newfoundland anymore and it's well above freezing already, so why not get off my ass and get out of the house?
Okay, that's a bit of a lie.
The main reason for leaving was two-fold: Starbucks and a cigarette. Threefold if you include the search for the latest issue of Passion, featuring my profile of Joy T-Shirts.
Regardless, my intentions being whatever they were, it's still involved getting up and outdoors and walking to Starbucks, a location I remembered from our Bambi Killing extended stay here over Christmas.
No luck finding the new issue, but I did find myself a nice Venti WCM, took a quick glance through the latest issue of Naked Eye - it's a Canadian Pop Culture Mag you sick bastards - and strolled home in the beautiful sunshine and cool breeze.
The plan for the rest of the day is all about hyper-domesticity: unpacking the bags and getting situated in my (our) new room, grabbing a couple groceries at the awesome Italian bakery / deli behind the house and making an awesome dinner of Italian Sausage and Peppers pasta with a nice fresh loaf of crusty bread.
So far, so good... not that I was worried.

Scored sushi at Ye's in Kitchener last night.
Best ever, no question. $25 All-You-Can-Eat, the freshest you can imagine and damn delicious.
Now, if they could get the servers to not throw everything at you, the joint would be perfect.
