Posting for the sake of posting.

Dear Blog,

I'm tired. It was a long day which involved a drive to Fort Erie in a snowstorm. But for some reason I feel compelled to write. I thought I'd give myself permission to do so, despite having no particular topic to discuss. I'm just curious to see what gems might be born of my fatigue.

Like, first of all: what is with Facebook statuses these days? Every second one is a cry for help: "Amy doesn't know if she can go on" and "Greg wonders when things will get better". I think some Vitamin D is definitely in order. Hey, maybe I'll make that my Facebook status: "Alison urges you to spend more time in the sun. Yeah, I know it's cold out there. Deal with it."

In other news, did you know that it takes 2.5 hours to drive to Fort Erie from Guelph in a snowstorm, which is a full hour longer than my dad said it would take? Did you also know that there is a theatre in Fort Erie called the "Gypsy Theatre" which ironically is located in one place and never moves?

This week I had dinner at Milestones and my appetizer was bruschetta made with bocconcini and olive tapenade. Did you know that this is the best kind of bruschetta that has ever existed in all the world? It goes especially well with Cosmos, but that might be the Cosmos talking.

I saw two movies this week: Slumdog Millionaire and The Wrestler. One of them is about an aging wrestler and one is about a boy who grows up in the slums of India, but I won't tell you which is which because I don't want to give anything away.

I am reading a book called The Secret which is going to teach me "who I really am", if the back cover is right. I hope that who I am is someone really cool, otherwise I might end up not liking me and I'll start talking behind my back and not inviting myself to parties.

xoxo
Alison

Psst! Hey Alison! I think Alison's lost it! Don't tell her I said so, though, k?
