May 13 10

1. Apparently, Pizza Uno isn’t a big fan of me. Well, I’ll tell you what, Pizza Uno, the feeling is mutual. I lived in Chicago for years, and never got a taste of the infamous Chicago Style Pizza that people rave about. This week I was able to have my very first taste test. Verdict? Totally not worth it. If I wanted to eat pie crust, I’d prefer it to be topped with key lime or pumpkin filling and whipped cream, thanks. As payback, the deep dish dinner kept me up all night with awesome indigestion. Viva la tums! (I told you that I singlehandedly keep them in business.)

2. Not everyone likes Swedish Fish as much as I do. And that kind of makes me want to cry. Silly Canadians. BUT, Canadians are privy to the wonder that is the Wunderbar, and, of course, the right kind of Smarties, so I will cut my northern comrades a little slack. Also, you know, there’s that free health care thing I enjoy partaking in. See: The Wisdom Tooth of Doom that I need to get taken out. AND TIM HORTONS.

3. I am starting to panic a little bit. I only have about 70 or so days left in the country and I am trying to pack it all in before I cross the border and get stripped of all the things I have taken for granted over the past 10 months. Daily trips to Target. Department store shopping. The Cheesecake Factory. The giant cupcakes at Fresh Market. DSW. Hulu. Decent cell phone plans.

4. I am so bad about taking important pictures. I mean, my god, I got to spend time with Kristin in Chicago and Heather (AND ANNABEL OMG) in LA, and what do I have to show for it? A picture that I’m stealing from Heather’s twitter stream (totally without permission) and she’s not even in it. Also, I kind of look ridiculous. But, be thankful that you can’t see the matzo ball-sized pimple that I’m sporting on my upper lip…she ain’t pretty.

5. Also, clearly, babies LOVE me.

6. Also, you see that dress I am wearing? It totally looks Anthro, right? Well, $20 at Dillards. BOOYA.

7. I probably just should have told you that it was Anthro. Also, I probably should never say the word booya again.

8. Fancy hotels needs to have real Q-tips because the fake ones are ridiculous.

9. You know you have a LOST addiction when your entire group is on the rooftop of your hotel getting sauced and discussing celebrity gossip while you are in your room watching LOST on Hulu. PS. totally worth it. Also, see #3.

10. The new Shrek movie is pretty friggin’ funny. Also, when you DO see the movie, and you hear the kid…I think his name is Butterpants…say “Do the roar, Shrek” don’t pee in your pants like I did. Trust me on this one, it’s a little embarrassing.

  1. Few understand my pain regarding fake Q-tips. I feel so much less alone now. Sob.

  3. Personally, I want to have Angry hair & Business hair at my disposal. So could have used you and your IMbD app for rooftop movie/celeb trivia.

    Do the roar.

  5. I can’t believe we didn’t take a picture. We. Are. Dumb.

  6. Did yo “BOOYA”?
    you did!

    And I enjoyed an entire bag of swedish fish last week. Mmmm!

    I’m easy about “cotton swabs”, but Sean is crazy about having real Q-Tips. (and Heinz ketchup – those are his 2 must haves)

    (my urbanmoms url is too long to put into my info on here – any suggestions?)

  7. I occasionally still use booya. But I shop at Anthro. Do they cancel each other out?

    Love the dress. Love the baby, too.

  8. As a fellow northern comrade, I can definitely agree with the fact that the range of inexpensive consumer goodies to be had south of the border is CRAZY GOOD compared to what we have here; it’s embarassing. Stock up on the Target stuff while you can!

  9. LOST trumps all!

  10. I would be with you on the Target stocking up prior to leaving! I do it every time I’m in the U.S. But unfortunately the Red Velvet Cheesecake from CKF doesn’t travel too well….maybe it’s worth a trip to Buffalo just to eat some 🙂

  12. I’ve seen you how many times in the last year and I think we have maybe one photo to show for it! I’m a bad picture taker too!

    I bring my own Q-Tips with me now whenever I travel. It’s just better that way.

    I’m so sad that you didn’t like the pizza! Maybe you need to try Gino’s (my favorite.)

  13. There’s a CheeseCake Factory in Edmonton, AB. Are they not everywhere in Canada?

  14. Lost addiction is a serious problem. I almost divorced my husband when he ruined Jin and Sun’s reunion for me. True story!

  15. You look SO cute! Taking the kids to see Shrek pronto. BOOYA!

  16. I had to add the L to the end of my name because for once, there’s another Katie.

    Come to Buffalo, NY!

    We have the cheesecake factory, tim hortons about 2 mi from eachother. Seriously, there are five tim hortons within a 5 mi proximity to my home, we have shitting taxes but buffalo chicken wings make everything better.

  17. I love Swedish fish, but now that you mention it, they really aren’t readily available up here anymore, are they?! And Target is just evil…I travel 3 hours, each way, several times a year to shop…I’m just hoping the rumour that it’s coming to Canada is true (but that was before the economy tanked). Then again, if it doesn’t come, it will likely save me a lot of money. 🙂

  18. What the HELL is a FAKE Q-tip?

    Comment by pixielation on May 16, 2010
  19. OMG…I totally disagree. Pizzaria Uno is the BEST pizza ever! Just to be clear, you can’t go to the chain. It’s not even the same recipe. There is nothing in this world that can top that pizza!

  20. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog
    when you could be giving us something informative to
