Saturday morning I woke up at 11:40 to my beeping phone. A txt from Andrew saying that him and Sara would be coming to pick me up to go to IKEA shortly after 12. I quickly got ready and soon they were here. I got in the car and we started driving East. IKEA is West. Very West, in fact.
We arrived at a Chinese restaurant, and I was told we were having Dim Sum. This was horrifying to me, because I am not a fan of different foods. I did not know what Dim Sum meant. [For those who don't know, it is Chinese for 'circulating trays of food']. I think.
Since I was trapped, I decided to dive in. Sara knew the deal, so she picked what we should try, suggesting things like buns full of meat that I would enjoy. And I DID enjoy. I enjoyed everything I ate except for the rice noodle with shrimp. Andrew didn't like that either, so that makes me not a wuss.
We did eventually go to IKEA. I bought a lamp and a mini ironing board because it is better than a towel, and a 'fits all pans' frying pan lid, because I don't have one and I use a baking sheet instead HAHA.
Today I worked on some school work. I also put the last bits of colour on my painting. It is fierce. I still need to paint the sides white a time or two so they are beautiful and presentable [no lazy paint splatters for this boy!] and then I will sign it up, take one last picture or two for you guys, and then I guess it will be off to Toronto where I will never see it again!
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all. I will come back with photos and drunken tales once my bottle of Jameson's wears off!
