let it snow

Lots of snow today in T.O. Sort of weird, looking out my window...because of the air currents, the snow looks like it's floating UP past the window.

Worked at Jeff's office yesterday...configuring new laptops, tweaking settings, packing up equipment. We went to Planet Hollywood's for dinner. Altho the restaurant opened in the neighbourhood a while ago (Bruce Willis and Demi Moore were in town for the big event), this was our first time there. Lots of movie memorabilia (our table was beside one of the gun-thingies from the first Ghostbuster movie), movie trailers playing on big screens everywhere, loud music. It could be a fun atmosphere if one was in the right mood, I'm sure, but we were both pretty tired. After dinner, I went home and Jeff went back to work, didn't get home until 2 a.m. (!!).

Paul and Beckett had sent me a chocolate orange, and I've just finished it, yum. For your amusement, here is a list of the "Nutrition Facts" on the box:
