While in Victoria, I have:
-attended a Medieval dinner put on by one of my parents' choirs as a fundraiser. The men of the choir were all dressed in monastic robes, which is so brilliantly inappropriate for my dad, I can't tell you. But lots of people were in costume, not just the choir, which was great, and the music was very fun.
-spent 2 hours with a 11-week old baby. I don't feel any more maternal than I did before the experience, but I didn't break out in hives, so that can only be good. I also held a baby for the first time since I was 16.
-discovered a bizarre obsessive urge to see The Notebook
. I don't know what's wrong with me.
-gone to a baby shower, where I was one of only 2 people who were not pregnant and/or did not have children. All the daughters of my mom's friends are procreating like crazy right now.
-eaten much cheese.
-followed the cat around and attempted to get her to pay attention to me for hours on end.
-had lunch with bruiseblue
, which was SO MUCH FUN, after which she gave me tours of the libraries and introduced me to many librarians, including the music librarian and music cataloguer, both of whom know my mother. Small world. Oy.
-broken my shoelace.
-woken up early every morning even though I didn't have to, all because of the damn jetlag.
-gone to a one-woman play called "The Love of Victoria R.", which took place in a castle and required us to follow the action from room to room. As a reward they gave us tea and cookies afterward.
-talked to nearly everyone my parents know. On the minus side, this meant many conversations about how I like Toronto and my job. On the plus side, there was more hugging in 3 days than I normally experience in a year.
-discussed weddings on four different occasions, with four different people.
-decided that I need to get involved in music again, in some form. I'm just not sure what that will be.
-played games, of course. Well, this hasn't happened yet, but it's the grand plan for tonight.
While in Victoria, I have not:
-cooked for myself.
-been online, except to check my email. Which means please tell me if anything exciting, amazing, terrible or downright boring has happened to you! I feel very out of the loop.
