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!
