Being Unproductive and Lazy

Ever since I got back from Halifax, I have been doing absolutely nothing productive. I haven't even completely unpacked from my Europe trip, and not to mention that I still have quite a bit of errands to run before the week ends. Somehow I have found time to sit around and before I know it, it's dark outside and I'm ready for bed.

So today I decided to meet Kenneth at Square One, at least it's something to do and it does require me to leave my house. We went shopping for a birthday present for somebody, and I saw this really cool shirt I want to get. *sigh* I'm so poor after all the traveling though!

Later on in the evening I met up with Chris, who also just came back from a trip to Europe. We went to the new McCafe (yes, opened by the people who brought you the Big Mac and the Arch Deluxe - anybody remember that burger?). It was a pretty cool environment, but the most important part was to share our travel stories.. it's funny how everybody that visits a certain city always goes to the same places. The conversation went like this:

Me: So when I was in [insert city name], I went to [insert famous tourist attraction].
Chris: Me too! We spent [insert time period] there! It was really cool.
Me: Did you go to [insert another tourist attraction]?
Chris: Of course. It would defeat the purpose of going to [insert same city name].

And so on. This is the moment when I know that next time I travel, I need to go to more off-beaten tracks like I used to.
