Day 22 – Fast Food Nation

Today I had to get out of the house!
Barrhaven Snow & Houses
Try and give Mabo &Vith a little home time without me.

They’ve been so good to me and I’ve been loitering all week. So I packed up around 7:30 and headed to Fallowfield station to go downtown. As I was reaching for my wallet to get bus fare, I realize I didn’t have my wallet… argh! So back to Mabo &Vith’s, into the house as quietly as possible so I didn’t disturb them more than I had to… and there it was on the chair.

Bundled back up and headed out again. But this time I didn’t make it all the way to Fallowfield Station – I was feeling to crappy and beat again. Just from walking back and forth, how pathetic! So into McD’s for a sausage mcmuffin (shhh don’t tell anyone, but they are my guilty little secret treat). They had a plug – so I plugged in the laptop and started some editing. Worked for at least 3 hours and got a big chunk of work done.

Since I had only planned to head to Chinatown, grab some dim sum and then spend the day in the library working, I decided I might as well stay in the Fallowfield strip. So I walked next door to the Tim Horton’s for a coffee and another 2 hours of work.

At this point, I decided that I would just head back home. I got a LOT done, saw a ground hog and even talked to dad and Ger. Was a bit of a suck head… but hey, what else is new? Caught a little TV and then headed to bed.
