Missed two days in a row of blogging. In that time, I ran a half-marathon and Canada got a new Prime Minister. Oh, and there’s a new Star Wars trailer.
The half-marathon went slowly, but not nearly as terribly as I thought. It’s a fun race for me, because the route goes around downtown for a bit, and then along the Lake Ontario for the bulk. The weather was cold, but clear (ideal). The queues for the portaloos were hell along (definitely not). Jackie, her mum, and I ate a giant brunch afterwards. I did not sleep on the train home because I didn’t want to accidentally lean/drool on the slightly smelly man sitting next to me. Finished reading Station 11 (good, a bit weird to stare out at Toronto skyline while reading it) and started The Martian (seeing the movie, need to read the book, luckily it’s a fun read). Bought a beloved Muji planner for next year.
I did not want any of the parties to win a majority. I did not want to lose my excellent MP. I did want to lose Stephen Harper as fearless leader, though, so at least one thing went right, and it was a big ‘un.
The Star Wars trailer gives me (a new) cautiously optimist hope.
