It's finally Spring and the sun is peeking through the clouds. I have plans for an anti-social day today and I quite like it. I slept in until just before 10am and have been vegging in front of the TV watching a Megastructures episode on the Water Cube that I'd PVR'd earlier while eating wonton noodles.

I'm now dillydallying because I have a list of things I'd like to see to today - including the purchase of a cap for running. I'm convinced I look like a complete dork in a cap but I've decided this is something I need to overcome. After trying a few caps yesterday during my lunch hour, I'm sure my head is bigger than the average woman - or at least the average that's been decided by the designers at Nike and Adidas because they're too small for me. So looks like I'm going to have to get a man-sized cap.

My fridge also needs re-stocking and having read a few of the essays in Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant, I've decided to make use of my kitchen this weekend...perhaps pull out my food processor for something complicated...or not, but fantastic nonetheless.

So off I go to get dressed...the day waits for no one!

just went through some of your posts and wanted to say i enjoyed them! i'm going to go through similar ordeals, as the tentative move-in date for my fiance's condo is march 2010! it's helpful to get an insider's perspective on what we may face in the near future! i'm sure my blog will soon be filled with hopes and rants on new home related issues! will definitely be following your site! by the way, i love j crew but have never ordered anything to canada before! do you find yourself paying a lot for customs/duties?

It was probably foolish of me to make this purchase but I had a $10 gift card begging to be used which more than covered the duty fees. If you're going to buy it's only really worthwhile if you spend more than $250 shipping-wise because it's volume based on $ spend. All told, the customs, S&H combined was 50% of the cost of the top! Not the smartest purchase I've ever made, that's for sure. I do love it though.
