Since my computer and the fun parts that attach to it have been taken apart and packed up, you won't be hearing from me much this weekend. I've shanghai'd C's computer for today, but soon it too will be packed.
The good news is that we have indeed procured a place to hang our hats. Or, as the cool kids would say these days, we got an apartment.
After this weekend, I will no longer be a Parkdalien.
I'm happy about where we're moving.. but man, am I gonna miss Parkdale. There's just something about it.
But all sad feelings aside, I'm in good spirits. Can't wait til this move is over so I can finally relax and be my usual semi-bitchy self.
Stay tuned, my lovelies.

This week has been a bit nuts, and a bit stressful. I realize I haven't posted anything about my long weekend. Here are pictures. And a lack of explanation.
The main reason for the stress is that June 1st is in about a week. Just 1st is our moving date.
June 1st, we have nowhere to move.
There have been some...uh... complications. Things have fallen through. And needless to say, I'm a bit scared. but we're doing what we can to secure something.
When we gave our notice two months ago, neither of us could foresee this.
One way or another, we'll end up somewhere. Cuz we sure can't stay where we are.
On another note, we're having a yard sale tomorrow.
Who wouldn't wanna own the crap of Kris, The Shambled Rambler and her (Not-So) Sidekick Boyfriend? Eh?
Yeah, you're right. It's a tough sell.
Either way, if you're in my 'hood, stop by! Drop me a line if you wanna know where we're located.
Unless you're a stalker.
Then please. Don't.

It never ceases to amaze me how many people from my hometown now live in Toronto.
It's almost as though moving here is the only plausible option, having grown up in Niagara.
Cuz let's see here...
A buddy from high school lives one street over. Had no idea til I moved here.
A few girlies I knew growing up now live in the vicinity of my current 'hood.
A bunch of C's clients are co-incidentally from St. Catharines. One went to my school.
Our neighbour is even from Niagara, and her sister happened to date C's best friend years ago.
And so on, and so on....
Now that we're moving, I'm wondering if I'll find a whole new group of St. Catharines folk.
I'm praying that it won't be exes,
boys I never called back,
or girls who were stage 5 clingers.
'Scuse me while I find a proper disguise. This chick's goin' incognito from now on.

The first time the Maple Leaf Gardens has been open to the public in 11 years, if I'm correct.
Travel people from all over the world set up booths to cater to the gay and lesbian market. So, of course, Proud FM had to be seen and heard!
Craig made sure to have a picture of him sittin' in one of the gold seats. Ah, memories of Leaf games... for him, anyways.
It was a long day for me, but we hit a local bar afterward to hang with the awesome work folks. By the time we got home, I was about ready to collapse. But when we reached our 'hood, it was in the middle of another blackout.
Craig's sisters and cousin (who is also the sister of my twinner girlies) were at our place and we were all getting ready to crash. Craig was told via text that we had to head down to the Rhino so his sister could meet a certain special someone... and so we head out once again to a bar.
Needless to say, that person was Strombo. Craig plays hockey with him, so it was easy as pie to get an intro to his sisters.
By all accounts, I'm told it was worth the hangover.

So much food from different restaurants in Toronto. This delicious dessert was from Dufflet. It was hard not to throw a bunch in my purse for later.
But I didn't. I swear.
There was a magician walking around, doing tricks for the guests. He caught us watching and clapping while he was at another table, so he stopped by ours afterwards.
Here he's making C write his name on a card.
I wrote mine on another.
Ta- daaaah.... it ended up being the same card, two-sided.
Er... it wasn't originally. The "magic" made it happen. The two cards became one card.
Meh. Remind me not to do PR for this guy. I'd fail. He was great, though.
Oh, hello free wine.
Havin' a good time. Can ya tell?
The event took place in the Distillery District, and it was a killer spot for it. C and I planned all the ways we would decorate if we lived there.
Craig in Paris.
Kristen in Paris.
There were photographers there, and one lady kept putting Craig and I in front of this wall to take couply pics. Some were pretty cute. Expect to see 'em someday.
Amsterdam beer. We came back for seconds. And maybe thirds. Ok.. fourths.
Waiting for the streetcar.
This was the ad on the wall of the streetcar stop. For a hazy moment, I thought this guy looked like Tony.
But it could've just been the booze and food getting to me.
