A long long time ago – no I’m not about to sing the song that, that line is making me thing of (hey name the song if you can)- when Chris and I lived in our apartment, we lived in a very trendy area of Toronto. It was the Yonge and Davisville area commonly known as Yuppyville when I first moved into the apartment, also very close to Yonge and Eglinton aka Yonge and beautiful.
It was a sad day- in a way- when we moved from the area. I was going to miss the hustle and the bustle, the antique stores, great restaurants, the little shops that resell designer clothes. I loved just walking down Mount Pleasant and popping into all the different stores. Chris and I would go to one of the restaurants at least once every two weeks or so. Even though we live in a very Greek area now I still say that one of the best Greek food restaurants in the city is on Mount Pleasant.
I do love my house and the area, but it’s a lot more relaxed than our former hot neighborhood, and in a lot of ways that is appreciated. I did think one thing that was kind of nasty though, when we moved from Yonge and Beautiful / Yuppyville – I turned to Chris when I found out the former owners of our house had accepted our offer and said “We’re moving from the land of the pretty people.”
You see, the area we used to live in was an area where you didn’t go out if you didn’t have make up on and you wore really nice clothes if you could. You wouldn’t be caught dead going to the store in sweats. Uhuh, and everyone just always seemed to be thin, well muscled and more often than not very attractive – probably because of all that makeup of course. LOL Now in this area- as I said it’s more relaxed. People stop and say hello, people are more real and there are still great stores, entertainment and restaurants within easy walking distance. But I do miss my Yuppyville.
Do any of you live or have you lived in area like the one I lived in? Fun, but very pretentious? Fake? I really do love where I live now, but I do miss the land of the pretty people every so often.
