Are you guys ready for Story Time With Kris?
Too bad. You're getting one anyways.
A couple of years back, me and my cousin Leah (the lovely lady I am pictured with above) were getting ready to hit the bars. For the life of me I cannot remember why, probably because we have wonky conversations daily, but Leah let me know that her ankles we very smooth that evening. She was wearing a skirt, so her smooth ankles were showcased.
Fast-forward to later on that night. A few wobbly pops under our belts, we headed to the ladies room. Leah went into the stall right beside me so, for a laugh, I decided to reach under our shared stall wall.
"Oooh, such smooth ankles," I said, while rubbing the ankle closest to me. Laughing, I left the stall, and Leah left hers. 2 stalls down.
She hadn't been beside me. I felt up a strange woman's ankles.
Oddly enough, the woman didn't say a word about it. I wonder if perhaps she enjoyed the experience.
In that case - to the unknown lady that I felt up - you're welcome.

After a Friday night of drinking with Neil, we spent our Saturday in King City, painting a friend's offices.
But beforehand, I felt the need to dance around my unfinished living room to some form of metal tunes.
That said and done, we were off.
Prior to painting we tried on the merchandise. Namely, this gray hat.

That night, they took us out to O. Noir for dinner.
If you don't know, O. Noir is a "dine in the dark" restaurant. You eat in complete darkness, and your servers are blind. There's one of these restaurants in all the major cities right now.
I thought "Oh, that's kinda quirky. You must just see shadows and things."
And so we went.
Allow me to show you EXACTLY what you see in the dining room:
You can't make out shapes, shadows, outlines... NADA.
So we were led to our table and they sat us down. Immediately I started hyperventilating a bit. I'm claustrophobic, and it felt as though I was in a coffin.
"Guys... I don't think I can do this" was the only thing I could say. I was super shaky and on the verge of tears. I didn't think I could breathe. Craig felt around and grabbed my hand to steady me and calm me down.
Needless to say, I stuck it out.
By the end, I was chair dancing. You know the saying "dance like no one is watching"? Well... no one was.
The entire meal took 2 hours, but only felt like one to me. Craig said he felt every single slow minute of it, and it was torturous.
An interesting experience, that's for sure.
For another take on the same night, read here.

I turned 26.
Here is a brief picture collage of things or people that may have somehow been involved in the aforementioned day of birth.

So here it is. An Update Of Kristen's Life O' Boring Craziness.
(Just a warning *ahem Will*. It'll probably be long and over-pictured. Deal.)
- As most of you know, we moved downtown on June 1st. This is what my balcony now faces. At night the view is pretty nice, and we're thankful for our many windows.
- Of course, Toronto Pride happened last month. As we work at the gay & lesbian radio station, Craig and I were present. Have I ever told you guys how much I love free beer?
- That's a tree on a car. Nature can be a spiteful bitch. I wonder what this guy did to deserve it...
