Day 2: Apple Tarte
Today in honour of celebrating American Thanksgiving with friends, I decided to wear socks that had food with cartoon smiles on them. I realize that one does not generally eat apple tarts at Thanksgiving, or even apples for that matter, but they are the only socks I own that have food on them. Seemed appropriate. Food makes me smile too.
I bought my socks at the Vancouver Night Market in Chinatown one evening. They had a table of six pairs of socks for, I think, $10. I thought that was a pretty good deal considering not one pair of socks on that table was boring. They all had a slight defect that I didn't notice until I got home. You know the line across the toe that's usually on top of your feet? Well, all six of these pairs of socks have it underneath my toes -- a small sacrifice for such cute footwear.
After school today I was pleasantly surprised when I walked to my car in the ABOVE ZERO celsius temperature. It feels like summer after the -40 with wind chill we had earlier this week. Plus two today is practically t-shirt weather. The roads are messy (as in, using windshield washer fluid every 5 minutes), but the sun is shining and that makes me a happy girl.
That reminds me of a discussion I had with a friend the other day. At what point in life do you stop referring to yourself as a 'girl' and start referring to yourself as a 'woman'? I think I technically fall into the 'woman' category, being in my mid-twenties, but it's hard to break the habit of referring to myself as a 'girl' and to males as 'boys'. However, when I think a guy is attractive it also seems rather strange to refer to him as a 'boy' considering what people generally picture in their head is a 12-year-old, and being attracted to a 12-year-old boy would just be wrong...and illegal. Must break this habit of calling men 'boys' so as to avoid...jail time?
Anyways, back to the topic of Thanksgiving. What are people thankful for?
I know I'm thankful for people with public Facebook profiles. It just makes Facebook creeping a lot easier!
I hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner (if you're having one)! I know I will, even if there are no "Apple Tartes" there.
