The Secret’s Out:

Yep today is the day, Victoria’s Secret has opened in the Eaton Centre. Naturally I went there, in hopes of seeing what I saw at the BCBG outlet (hoardes of women digging through merchandise, pushing and shoving and swearing) also out of sheer curiosity to see if it would stand up to its American counterpart. There was a line-up to get in, more security guards than necessary and even two cops stationed across the way. While in line they were handing out bags with a free gift inside, and someone must have alerted the hobo community because there were quite a few scraggly men in line who grabbed for a bag and then just left, save for one who stayed in line the whole 20 minutes and then later wandered the store in a dazed and confused fashion (it was sad/creepy). Had the word gotten out WHAT the gift was, this would not have happened. The free gift? *Draws a deep breath*: pink leopard-print lacey one-size-fits-all THONG. Yep. That is what I got for standing in line behind a smelly lady and in front of a lady who kept smacking my backpack, despite the dirty looks I gave her.

What happened once inside the store? Sheer and utter disappointment. No opening day sales, no clearance (yeah, that one is a given, I know), and worst of all: no PINK! What the hell?! The other PINK locations in the city (Yorkdale and in Mississauga, Square One) have been open since the summer! Summer! This is a ridiculous disappointment almost warranting a boycott. Almost. They do have good clearance sales (at least in the U.S., not sure if it transfers over here, it did for PINK so why not?). Do I regret going? Nope. Because now I know there is no PINK and I will stick with Aerie until a good sale crops up. I am still holding out for a PINK though, where else can I get a shirt that says PINK PINK PINK and then iron on an  A on that last PINK?

Here is a pic of the lack of true madness:

Oh Happiest of Days

Ignoring the mild ghost-attack I just experienced via both my computers simultaneously (on one the audio died down and on the other my screen input cut out… both at the same time… coincidence? hardly, it was a ghost!)

Now then, back to my original post (for lack of a webcam, you cannot see that I got out of my chair and sat on the floor cross-legged to be at eye level of my scnreen at my new comp, yes I am totally geeking out working on two computers simultaneously, and yes this new widescreen format rules over all):

My guardian angel in the States (one of two) sent me the greatest gift attainable on this here fine planet we call Earth. Yep my shipment of Swiss Miss (world’s greatest hot chocolate, distributed by ConGra, whom we HAVE up here! They give us Hunt’s Snack Pack puddings, but no Miss!) came in and perfectly timed given that on Saturday I am heading to Niagara Falls and I inevitably would have begged and pled (to no avail, for knowing me I would totally forget my passport at home) for a quick run across the border to stock up on supplies (Cherry Coke, but  I remember once mixing Coke and amaretto and it tasting rather similiar, but for the sake of my liver… i need real Cherry Coke). No need. I am well stocked. So many packets! I love it so much I joked in my thank you message that I would refrain from snorting it. So instead, I sit here, legs going numb, wrists in killer pain (this is not a desk, it is a crappy coffee table) about to get up and go sip it, it is cooling. Yeah, like my first sip of Swiss Miss I am going to sear my throat. Hah. P.S.: in searching for this image I found out that there is a type of marijuana plant called Swiss Miss. Irony?

So apparently when everything got imported it decided to keep the first two words, then skip a line, and continue. As can be seen from THIS post, it was part of the import process, i.e.: NOT ME.

What the hell has happened to MSN Spaces? I remember when I first read about it in the paper and joined… 6 years ago?! That can’t be right…
