The poverty gods are smiling upon me today - I managed to have one of those evenings where I actually enjoy having no money. I can look at the sign at Future Bakery that says "Slice of Cake and Cappuccino for $5.99" with such dramatic longing that I wouldn't be surprised to find myself actually in a film, one of those (possibly fin-de-siecle, possibly British) out-of-a-novel numbers. And seeing as how I just watched High Fidelity for the first time tonight, I might also like to have John Cusack appear out of nowhere and, being on the rebound, take me out for drinks and then shag me rotten.

What I did end up with was a can of tuna, an avocado, and three Mr.Noodles packages (I hadn't touched them in two years, what a defeat this is) for $2.27. I was so chuffed that I gave the extra loonie I had on me to a homeless person on the way back to my house.
