From Nothing, to Everything

I should go to sleep, what with it nearly being 6am, but I should also write this, what for knowing that if I don't, keeping a record of things done here will come to an abrupt end. Having started writing, it looks like I'm going with the latter, so let's see...

Now, what's going on tomorrow? I need to finally get up to Real Canadian Superstore for chicken. And more s'mores snack mix. I think Dan is still up for coming along, but I might ask if he would mind me going on my own, because I'd like to do that again. They close early because of the long weekend though, and it's just as well, because we have certain completely unexpected (to me) plans for tomorrow evening: go out to a campsite that Dan says is relatively near the zoo, stay there for the night, and get to the zoo bright and early in the morning. I'm up for it, because that sounds like fun, even if I have a couple reservations concerning the weather and whatnot, but I don't know about having more time at the zoo, because all of Eurasia is still closed off, and if we're to wake up at ~8am, when I might not be asleep until then this morning, I'm not going to be in a very pleasant mood for walking around to see the animals. I suppose we could also sleep longer at the camp site, and go to the zoo at what would be a normal time, but it's a fun idea nonetheless. That's also what the s'mores kit I bought would be for. What better place to make them, yes?

Before I go to bed though, there is one specific thing that happened earlier tonight while we were out walking around that I absolutely must write about. We were outside Union Station, when, from behind me, I heard a female voice say "Hey!" I turned around, said "Hi", and was immediately asked "What are you supposed to be?" I answered with the same answer I gave when somebody in Cloverdale Mall asked that question - a snow leopard (obvious...) - and she kind of scoffed, but I continued on, saying that it was just something that made me me when she asked why. She then inquired as to "What [my] mom thinks of it", and when I said she was pretty much fine with it, the girl seemed truly taken aback. She said that if it was her son, she'd be telling him to "snap out of it" or something, but then, in a brief moment of reason, said "But you know what? To each their own...", before delving right back into snark with "Do you have any mental illnesses?" I told her "Not as far as I know...", and she said something that I didn't hear, to which my final remark was "As you said though, to each their own". Yeah. I think that's the first time I've actually been judged in such a way, but I'm not bothered by it. Dan knew exactly what I was thinking though, because when I mentioned it to Xion when we got back to the apartment, he said "Now you can write about it in your LiveJournal!", and yes... People... Now it's time for sleep. I really did have fun today, but a new day started six and a half hours ago, so there's bound to be more to come~
