An afternoon in High Park, Toronto

Shylo and I got up to meet her parents at their hotel again. We checked out and headed down to High Park to go to Dr. Generosity. It was way too full, so we went across the street to Sunset Grill. I had an unremarkable breakfast, with some really crap coffee, but we had a good time.

Shylo and her mom and dad went back to the hotel to go get ready to see King Tut, and me and my parents went our separate ways. Out to Diempflmeier to buy some bread and things that make us fat. Namely, jelly donuts and salty pretzels.

After that me and mom and dad just sort of wandered around High Park, shopping and stuff.

Dad came across some free wine samples, so we had some of that and annoyed the lady at the wine store for a while. Mom bought some greenery from some sort of florist and a big box of blueberries and chestnuts (for roasting on an open fire, dontchyaknow)

We had some Vietnamese for dinner. Dad got some surprisingly authentic Thai fish cakes and I had some surprisingly inauthentic Thai iced coffee. I still haven't found the same stuff anywhere in Canada. Not that I've been trying too hard.

Soon it was time for me to go back to the Scarborough Town Centre to meet Anuj for my ride home. I had an hour or so to kill before meeting him so I just walked around looking for wi-fi to save me from spending any more money. I had blown through at LEAST $300 on this trip already. I don't know where it went.

This time I rode in the front of the car and the two girls in the back promptly passed out, leaving me to stay awake and chat the whole way home... oh well. We got back at about midnight. Pretty fast.
