Note: WL is in engineering.
me: Are you going to Nuit Blanche?
WL: When is it?
me: Tomorrow! Talking to your woman about it. You should go. DATE NIGHT!
WL: Not really my thing.
me: Do it!
WL: Are you going?
WL: Yeah.. Then I’m really not going. (haha) Just kidding, just kidding.. Hmm.. I doubt I’ll go. Nuit Blanche doesn’t entertain me. It doesn’t stimulate me the way math does.

Toronto Botanical Gardens
At the ROM, somewhere in the Biodiversity Exhibit…
ROM-Employee: [holding a tiger stuffed-toy and a piece of some kind of white thing] Would you like to feel?
me: Hmm. I wonder what this could be.
ROM-Employee: Well, what is this? [raises tiger stuffed-toy]
DG: A tiger.
ROM-Employee: Right, so what’s this? [raises piece of white thing]
me: Tiger fur!
ROM-Employee: What kind of tiger?
me: Siberian tiger?
ROM-Employee: Yup. This is real Siberian tiger fur.
me: Cool. It doesn’t really feel like fur because it’s not that usual soft-like feel.
DG: Yeah, this doesn’t feel like fur. It feels like a coat.
DG: Look at this bird; it flew so fast it lost its skin.
At the TBG, somewhere near the entrance.
me: Oooh! Look! Those are so pretty!
DG: Yeah. What are they?
me: English Lavender. Does it smell like lavender?
DG: [sniffs] Yeah. It has a bit of an English accent though.
i don’t have a cat; i’m allergic to cats
my text: [dogs are] Better than cats. Cats are so high maintenance.. And they don’t love you back
MP’s text: lmao a loveless relationship
my text: I’m very familiar with that kind. Sad face. But because [I’ve had so many] of those, I appreciate my current relationship soooooo much more.
MP’s text: With your cat? Or with DG? Or both?
me: Both. Obviously.
is it just me… or is everyone getting married these days?
longevity and durability
there should be an instructions manual.
also, Man and Woman have German accents because they are from Germany.
me: I’m 24-years-old; I have a lot of life ahead of me.
Man: Wait. You’re telling me that I am 55 years older than you?
me: No way! You do not look like you’re 79!
Man: I am and my wife is going to make me hate it next year.
Woman: He turns 80 next year and I am going to laugh at him. I have known him for 54 years. We have been married for 53 years.
me: What! That’s amazing! Wow! I really hope that I can have something like that.
Man: People around your age and in these years seem to not last very long.
me: Yeah, it’s rare to hear stories about marriages lasting for long.
Woman: It was very different to get married back then.
Man: Yeah, back then, when people got married, they didn’t have stuff. They accumulated as they grew older. Now, people have stuff. Too much stuff—TV, computers, furniture and other things.
me: Yeah, it’s true.
Woman: Yeah, even furniture back then lasted long. You could buy a sofa and it would last you 30 years. Now, furniture is not so good.
Man: Marriage now is like Ikea furniture: cheap to buy, easy to build, falls apart fast!
