Some of you have been following me for the last few months and read about how I blithely ate my way down Queen Street, 3 blocks of Gerrard, and various points on the Danforth. I am East Toronto’s takeout version of “Eat, Pray, Love.” I’m willing to admit, I think I spent too much time on the “eat” part, it’s time to pray. I do have an ashram set up in my house, complete with all the game systems and Rogers on Demand, that will help with the meditation part but last week I turned pro-active with the prayer part. I have bootcamped and grunted with my girl-cush, Amy and aerobicized and walked out with that taskmaster of torture, Jen. I’ve also yogo’d (?!!! I can’t even explain why he calls it this: spinning and yoga) with David, who is my own personal Jesus, I love him so. He’s married though, all the good Jesuses are married, gay, or dead. So far after my first week, I have learned that I am a piece of work in progress, and that while Jesus may love me, he is not *in love* with me. So I better just do what I’m told and shut up.
I’m already anticipating the third part of my “eat, pray, love” journey. I came across a beautiful mattress store called essentia at 2180 Queen Street. I was so tired, I needed to lay down also I am looking for something unique in a mattress that will help with my coccyx condition (I wish)….okay! I’m looking for a bed I can watch tv in that I don’t have to order from on the Shopping Channel. Essentia mattresses are made of memory foam without the toxic ingredients which means mites won’t stick around. They range in thickness and vary from luxuriously soft to my favourite, the fit and firm. The company is all about quality and the environment, what more can you want? There’s always more to want and I have found it: Hello, Lover! They have a bed called the Flex Drive, that offers full range of motion and you can adjust it with the flick of the wand. I see tv!

P.S. you could even eat in that bed without spilling and the shwarmas at Delina’s are fantastic!
