Well, I was in Montreal, and I just had to have poutine. I haven’t had poutine in close to two years and I dreamed of it, I salivated over the idea of it and finally this week I squeezed in a quick visit to Pizza Pita and ordered my poutine.
It did not live up to my high expectations. I would even go so far as to say it was “meh”. I expected to be transported to gustatory nirvana. Didn’t happen. Well, I guess I am finally cured of eating a “heart attack in a bowl”.
Sad sad sad day.
For the two weeks that I was off coffee I had no energy. I dragged myself around and felt that my get up and go had got up and went.
Yesterday I had a cup of coffee and I had energy to clean house, I got all the laundry done after a cup of coffee today, met up with friends for lunch, and still had energy left to clean and cook when I got home. Not quite Lynette on Ritalin, but close 😉 Last week this would have been very tough.
Maybe caffeine is a wonder-drug, but it isn’t speed or amphetamines, and it seems a harmless way to get stuff accomplished in my day. I don’t regret falling off the decaffeinated wagon!
We had a tweet-up today which was so fun. EmetElisheva and KosherAcademic and I all met up at the Cavendish Mall for an hour, over poutine. I had never physically met KosherAcademic before, neither had EmetElisheva. We all three are bloggers and we tweet too – I connected with KA over FaceBook through KvetchingEditor, and EE and I have been friends for years, EE and KA connected through Twitter. It’s a small world, this blogosphere of ours.
Girlies – I had a lot of fun – I look forward to meeting up again soon.
I love you on your own
With a nice sized dollop of ketchup
You always thrill me
And strengthen my bones
You moisten even the driest
Of any food on the table.
Combine the three at high heat
The gravy soaks its way
Into the french fries
And the cheese melts its way
Around those crispy-turning-soggy fries
Creating a mouthwatering heart stopping artery clogging dish
THAT I AM CRAVING RIGHT NOW!!
