I wanted to post yesterday, but I was too brain dead from being outside.
Anyways, this is what I did this past Weekend.
On Saturday, I headed to the Sparks Street Mall for the Buskerfest.
I saw two acts that day.
Liquer Flambé — These 2 were from Australia. Their act featured a Violin, Fire eating, and Juggling. It wasn’t bad, but I’ve seen better.
Checkerboard Guy — This guy was funny, but catered mostly to Kid. Good show though.
I headed home shortly after that.
I called my Nephew to wish him a Happy 3rd Birthday, which was on Saturday.
My Sister will be bringing him to visit at the end of August.
I spent the rest of the night vegging out online, and watching TV.
Sunday was a long day for me, but pretty fun.
My first stop was Pure Gelato.
Normally when I have Gelato, I’m with my Wife and we share it. It usually works out to about 6-10 bites. I’m certainly not complaining, but sometimes you gotta spoil yourself, especially if your sig other’s out of Town.
I went kinda crazy on the Gelato.
I ordered two flavors. One was Crem Caramel, and the other was Chocolate.
They were both damn good.
I quickly got full after a few minutes, but I managed to eat half a bowl.
By the time I left, I felt like a fat Pig.
For obvious reasons, I just can’t walk it off, and driving a Chair doesn’t really burn Calories.
From there, I headed to the Rideau Canal Festival. My Wife & I “adopted a Metre”, but I couldn’t find the spot for the Plaque with our names on it. I asked at the Information Tent, but they were useless. They said it starts under the Bridge, and that I can look it up online. Yeah, I did that beforehand, douchebag.
I was getting hot, so I decided to head to the Rideau Centre to cool off for a bit.
After awhile, I headed to a Patio and had a Beer.
Later, I headed back to the Sparks Street Mall to see some more Buskers.
When I showed up, right away I saw Silver Elvis.
Silver Elvis — He was standing elevated, dressed like Elvis, and painted all in Silver. Basically, he’d dance or move if you dropped Money in his Piggy Bank. He looked pretty cool, but he didn’t do that much.
Jeff Hill — I’ve seen this guy before and he puts on a great show. He swallows objects and brings them up, plays with & eats fire, illusions, and gets out from a Strait Jacket. His show’s Soundtrack is pretty rockin’ too. After the show, I went up and gave him $2.
I tried to see a few other acts, but I was too late. There were too many people for me to even attempt getting a spot.
That was it for my day.
As for today, I went to Starbucks to get an Espresso.
My Wife returns tonight.
Her Brother and his Kid will be staying with her, so we’ll probably hang out tonight, and part of tomorrow.
I hope you all had a good Weekend out there.
