After a week of wonderful rest and relaxation, I have finally returned to the good ol’ U.S. of A. I can’t say that I’m overjoyed to be home, but I had to get back to reality eventually. Although I went to a different country (if you think Canada counts) I should admit that we didn’t accomplish much (but I am up to date on True Blood!). That being said, there are a few things I’ve learned about Canada this week that I will definitely miss.
This gal loves her sushi and Japanese fare. Seriously, I could eat it every day of the week. And in Canada? Well most places offer All You Can
Shove-in-your-gullet Eat menus. I’m not talking buffet style, you actually order exactly what you want and it is prepared for you. Of course this has a downside (when you feel like you want to vomit), but I try not to think about that.
Think Victoria Secret is nice? Well I think La Senza makes damn sexy undergarments. I’ve heard about the company before, but had never seen or tried anything on. Unfortunately the store was closing fifteen minutes after I entered so I was only able to procure a few underoos, but I know I’ll feel
sexy beautiful when I wear them. (Not that anyone else will be seeing them for a while…)
Apple Fritters will be my greasy, sweet downfall. Adeel decided to show me the local flair and took me to a flea market. Apparently the item of choice for most people were the freshly prepared apple fritters. You watch them peel, slice, and fry them into sweet perfection. I will not be telling you how many I actually consumed, let’s just say I will be doing two a days this week to get them off my hips.
And most importantly, I’m not sure if you were aware of this, but Canadians really are more polite and nice. Ask them a question on the street and they are happy to help. In stores and restaurants they bend over backwards for you. And when you’re in a hurry at the airport, they will let you get in front of a whole line to pass through security. Don’t know if I could get used to it (too much New Yorker in my blood), but it was pleasant for the week.
What exciting things can you tell me about Canada? Tell me something about your week!
A major thanks to the lovely ladies that guest posted for me while I was away! If you haven’t been to their blogs, I seriously suggest you check them out. I adore them and I bet you will too – Laura at the Odd Duck Blog, Melissa at Journey to Marvelous, and Sarah at Running on Words. I feel so behind since I haven’t had much time to read or comment on blogs, but now I have something to keep me occupied this week…
