Not only me I hope!

Till fall my dear friend!
Ever have seasonal cravings? I mean the moment the weather changes there is no way you can eat that type of food till the next  season? I am thinking visceral reaction to the food if you see it once more before the season comes back.

I am not talking holiday meals. Those are self explanatory. They have a 2 week life span.

Look at it like this. 2 seasons to food cravings I believe are from May till October and then from October to April. October can over lap the kind of weather melds around there. Summer and cold cravings. Salad and soup seasons.

I can't eat another bowl of soup now. I know I will be eating it all I can when the weather gets cold again but why is it so damn dramatic? It feels like I will never eat another bowl of soup ever! Now I just want my steak spinach salad to which I was so sick of when the temperature got cold.

You never know!

Say cheese?
In the age of selfies I am going to be brave and say it is very over rated... in the dating world.

I hate my photos because I am not very well represented. I am quite white and there is no dimension to my photos. Then there is the lighting where I am too slim or too fat to be me.

Do I take advantage of the skinnier ones? Yes I do. Won't lie. Feel guilty? Somewhat.

The other thing is most of the photos I have come across on dating places seem to be fake, trying too hard, or just blah. I agree not easy to always have someone willing to capture you being you without being paid. Friends don't seem to be very helpful either.

Reading too much into this? Probably. Why write about this? Because if you rely a lot on photos you may miss out on meeting some really cool people. My latest discovery and now I try my best not to rely too much on photos.

Safety first though, best to have at least one photos showing who they are.

Road Trip!

Where's my hippy jacket?
Well at least the plans for my next options of road trip and who wants to come along if anyone. I have to do something interesting this summer!

I like keeping the driving to 5-6 hours and up to 3 days in destination. A little here and a little there. Whether a long trip or weekend getaway.

Current ideas and favorites that haven't gotten old:

  • NYC - Who doesn't love this place? It's Montreal's bigger brother on steroids.
  • Boston - Smell of ocean air and nautical feel. Great place for historical discovery and fun food places.
  • Vermont/New Hampshire/Maine - This looks like fun in bits or all the way!
  • Parc de la caverne du Trou de la Fée - A hiking week-end. Looks interesting and who can resist a waterfall hike?
  • Quebec City - Would you believe I have yet to go here? It is a love hate kind of place from what most people tell me.
If anything I will drag the kid along with me.
