Goooooood morning sunshines!

First and foremost: V, I just saw all the food you posted and I want to eat all of it right now. On a completely related note, Tuesday is “Caitlin eats everything in sight” day, and as of right now (9:30am, just in case it takes me all day to write this post), I have eaten over 1000 calories worth of food according to rough estimates and the Daily Plate.

Carrying on. As you all know, this past weekend I was in Toronto. It was a short visit, due to training partner Val’s work on Friday and my work on Sunday, but we got to celebrate roommate-for-life Ber’s birthday! On Saturday during the day, we went to Sexapalooza, which is a sex industry trade show, for those of you too lazy to click the link. First interesting thing: finding a parking spot. That shit was CUT THROAT. I can’t even begin to explain. We ended up driving to the entrance, finding people that were leaving, following them in our car, and making Stacy get out and stand in the parking spot as soon as they pulled out. There were two jeeps parked on snowbanks, not unlike the following picture – within two rows of parking.

The Jeeps were partially explained by this AMAZING fact: in the conference hall next to Sexapalooza, there was an Outdoor Adventure Trade Show. Ah-mazing! So after an hour or so at Sexapalooza (including a BDSM seminar. Air supply control masks = terrifying, FYI), Val and I snuck off to pillage the free energy bar (and soy milk, and cheese) sample booths at drool over piles of exercise equipment.

Our wallets managed to survive until we found KSL. This little clothing boutique from Montreal is the best thing that has ever happened to my closet. With the greatest self restraint, I only bought two things. Katy St-Laurent, who is the genius behind it all, created a line of clothing that is both stylish and completely functional with an active lifestyle. The dress I bought is a) the cutest dress ever, but b) has a cycling jersey style neck, back pocket, and snaps on the side to hike it up over shorts for a commute. Um, amazing? The shirt I got has a back pocket as well, and is a long sleeved cowl neck that can be worn approximately a million different ways, but that’s a conservative guess. As Val said, it’s like Lululemon, American Apparel, and Sugoi collided and made extremely good looking babies. Pictures to follow!

I have to school for the rest of the day, so I will leave you with THIS, amazingness and this:

C, out!

Quick update: I have changed the colours we blog in a la 2birds1blog. I (C) have chosen this lovely fushiaish (it’s a word because I said so, okay?) colour, and V will be in BLUE! unless she decides to change it. I just picked one.

Next on the docket:

Hehehehehehe. I watch that clip tooooo much.

Moving on. After having done a spin class for the first time in like, a year, I am off to Toronto for the weekend for Sexapalooza and roommate-for-life Ber’s birthday bash. She is celebrating along with two of our other friends, so things might get a little craaaaazzzzy! I think we are trying to go to a club called This Is London. This club has something called “The Women’s Spa” – the WHOLE THIRD FLOOR is a women’s only bathroom/spa area. My mind, it is blown. I don’t see how one could make that concept any more amazing.

On the note of amazing concepts – I went to Goodlife to spin today. I usually work out at the University, because it is free (and by free, I mean I pay the school piles of tuition so I may as well use the damn gym there), but the spin class was conveniently timed and blah blah blah. Anyway… Goodlife has MASSAGE CHAIRS. I feel like they could base their entire membership sales pitch off those things.

“Why hi there! Welcome to Goodlife! Here, now just sit down in this chair, I’ll turn it on. *pause… wait…* okay feel good? Perfect, now just hand me your credit card to sign up and you can stay in the lovely massage chair”

I mean, it would probably work on me.

C, out!

PS. V, I am exceedingly jealous of your lunch.
