Mike and I both took a couple days off of work and headed to Toronto on Wednesday. We decided to take the bus rather than drive. The bus terminal is about two blocks from the apartment and booking through Megabus, we only paid $11 for two one way tickets there! We bought tickets for the Faulty Towers dinner show at the Sony Centre for Wednesday night.
It was excellent with the shenanigans starting before we even got seated for dinner. Mike got a couple insults thrown at him. Then we had a peanut (not my gecko named Peanut!) thrown at us, which I gracefully caught. Here’s Mike getting heckled by Manuel:
Then Basil and Sybil began their typical arguments while in front of us:
After a little show in the bar and waiting area, we were summoned to our tables. It was a very interactive show, with the actors doing their thing around our dinner tables. All three of them were spot-on with regards to their characters:
Manuel danced and sang up on our table at one point:
I cant’ remember if that was before he combed my hair with my fork, to which Basil told him to stop as there was no hope for me! Tee hee!
Along with the show, the food was excellent:
We would both recommend going. Afterwards, we walked back to our hotel for the night. The next morning, we headed to Timmies for breakfast and then to Ripley’s Aquarium, which is next to the CN Tower. We made it there just before about seven school buses came, so it was relatively quiet while we walked through the amazing exhibit. Here are a few shots:
We got to pet the little…errr…..I forget what they’re called. Brown, flat fishie dudes:
Of course, being a total whack job, I had to do all of the kid activities and things. Like pose under this jellyfish dangler:
And crawl on my hands and knees through the kiddies tunnel, where I did this lovely pose for Mike:
Great couple of days! Needless to say, I was totally wiped out today – I always seem to have to pay for these things but it’s worth it. You gotta live! Life it too short, just like my mother.
Today’s symptoms: Really pooped and lots of bad MS aches and pains. I’ll feel better tomorrow though.
