Friday Five: Brr!

Friday, February 19, 2021
This week's Friday Five:
  1. What will you remembrr about this past week? J-Hope's chaotic birthday livestreams and BTS' chaotic OT7 livestream for the release of their BE Essential Edition album. I had to go back to work on Tuesday after a week of vacation so, quite frankly, these were the highlights of my week. 

  2. What's trying its best to clobbrr you these days? Work, winter, pandemic, ennui. I've just been feeling down in general.

  3. What's going on in the neighbrrhood? Well, my condo management just sent everyone an e-mail notice about people parking in unauthorized spots... and another notice for dog owners to pick up their pets' shit... But I don't notice these things 'cause I only leave my apartment once a week...

  4. When were you recently required to summon some brravery? Well, every two weeks, I go to the supermarket, which is quite risky since we're in lockdown...

  5. Over what will you happily labrr this weekend? Cleaning the apartment. I'm not happy while doing it, but I am happy afterwards.

  1. There seems to be a LOT of feeling down these days. I think COVID weariness is taking its toll on us all. Hang in there. <3

    Pringles I can take or leave -- I've never really liked the texture, but I've been known to go to town on a whole can once every few years.

    I did a Yelp search for cioppino in Toronto, and it looks like you have a bunch of options!

    1. Yeah, I think it's finally getting to me. It's not helping that we're also in the middle of winter, which means that I'm getting even less sunlight than I normally do being nocturnal. I mean, I usually get that winter-blues-cabin-fever feeling this time of year, but it's definitely amplified because of COVID. Can't even go out to eat to cheer myself up. I hope you're doing okay. <3

      I'm having a Pringles moment right now. It started because there was a huge sale on Pringles a couple of weeks ago. Like, every single retailer was having a special price on them, from supermarkets to the drugstore to Walmart. (Maybe there was a massive surplus of Pringles in Canada?) I picked up five cans, LOL.

      There are definitely quite a lot of restaurants to get cioppino in Toronto, but almost all of them are downtown or further -- at least 30 minutes away by car from where I live. I'm actually surprised it's not more commonly available around here, even at seafood restaurants. Maybe I can see if one of my cooking-inclined friends is willing to make it, lol!
