Forget Secretly Cheating, We Just Do Our Own Thing

Catchy title eh? Don’t worry. It’s not what you think? I don’t have the energy to pull that off. I am quite happy with one special person in my life.

No, the title is referring to cheating on the person you binge watch Netflix shows with. Yes, it’s true. A recent study shows 46% of the people polled, will venture on with a show and not wait for their partner.

So how do we get around that sticky situation at our house? It’s easy. We have our own shows. No waiting around required.

Currently my wife is blitzing through every episode of Scandal she can get her hands on, while I am spending time with The Fall.

New Cuban Place in #Parkdale – Mojito Cubano

New place to eat in Parkdale alert. Mojito Cubano. No need to go up to Roncy or over to Ossington anymore.

Welcome to Parkdale Mojito Cubano! #cuban #restaurant

A post shared by Parkdale Village BIA (@parkdalevillage) on

I love a good mojito, so I am sure once the summer arrives, we will be checking it out. Try the food, see if it’s kid friendly and if it will make our regular Parkdale rotation.

The menu looks tasty. Honestly as long as they have a Cuban sandwich and a minty mojito, I’m down. Interesting the kid menu offers spaghetti. Anyways. My boys like spaghetti.

Where are you eating in Parkdale? Love to hear new places to try.

Trump Draws

The world seems to be in the shitter thanks to Trump and his mighty executive pen. The news sucks, social media is depressing, it’s cold outside and the Raptors are a dumpster fire. So what has me laughing?

The amazing Twitter account – Trump Draws.

 

I actually make a point of checking once a day as it seems they are updating it once a day. Makes me feel better.

Do you remember when your kids first started watching shows or movies that were not cartoons? In our house for many years, if it was not a cartoon, it was boring.

But that has started to change as our boys get older.

Now they like shows or movies that have real people and real stories rather than the world of cartoons.

Just this past weekend we watched the first Harry Potter movie from beginning to end. Both our boys (4 and 7) stayed engaged the whole time.

That would not have happened even 6 months ago.

It sure makes watching TV with the kids a lot more enjoyable. You can only watch so many Paw Patrols or episodes of Pokemon before you leave the room.
