Lazy? Damn Straight!

Yeah, I'm being a lazy butt tonight, and I haven't had the energy or willpower to cook anything new recently. Well, I mean, if you don't count the Swiss Rolls my fellow classmates and I whipped out in yesterday's class at George Brown College. I'll tell you about that tomorrow. First... check out these carrots and leeks I saw at the St. Lawrence Market!! Not a word of a lie, those things are the size of my forearm. One carrot could make a whole carrot cake! I kind of wanted to buy one, just for the sheer size of it, but really - it's been my experience that big does NOT always = tasty in the veggie world. However, me being small meant I could manouver the hordes of shoppers in the giant market with as little jostling as possible! I love it down there, and Kensington Market, and Chinatown, and Roncesvalles... I think I need to move to Toronto! No suburbs for this foodie!

I'm getting really PO'd at Blogger right now, though, since this is the 5th time I've had to re-type this passage, so I leave you now to enjoy my random Toronto photography while reading this semi-meme I stole off of one of my new blog-haunts: So...What Else, What Else, What Else? - It takes imdb.com's top 250 movies of all time and gets you to pick out the ones you've seen. My count's at 87... 35%... which is pretty good since I really hate movies (unless I'm really in a "movie mood", which isn't often) and 3/4 of these were made before I was born!
