    by  • 8/27/2008 • travel • 0 Comments

    Well, the plan is to leave the apartment in a mere 4.5 hours from right now, and head off to Georgia by way of Toronto. We’ll be there by lunch time, leaving plenty of time for check in and setup before trying to catch up on some of the sleep deficit we’re already faced with. […]

    Well, if they’re good for nothing else, Starbucks Coffee is offering to make sure that my broken tooth and I get taken care of. They called today to verify which shop it was that I bought the abusive pastry from, so that they could find which vendor provides Starbucks with the enamel-cracking date squares. They’re […]

    Two Heads Are Better Than None

    I ordered some buttons with the idea that they’d sell well enough at a fall/winter craft sale here. I have at least 50 to 100 of each of these two pieces. I also have a stack of neodymium magnets (5-6mm, 1-1.2kg pull), so with a pair of wire snips, these pins become rather nice little […]

    Well, looks like I’m going to need a root canal at worst, and a bit of a patch job at best. I sent the following to Starbucks customer service email line. I’ve been meaning to tell them how poor the selection of foods are compared to anywhere of their non-Maritimes locations, and what better time […]

    Pop Montreal

    Maybe we’ll win some lottery and be able to travel to Montral as well this fall… I can’t see this happening and I can’t imagine Nick Cave and WIRE pulling in to Halifax ever, or Vancouver for years. I stand by my choice to stalk SNFU in September though, but were that not happening, I’d […]

    I find the drawing below hilarious. If you’re normal, you likely do not. There are shirts with that and other xkcd graphics (Science. It works, bitches) should anyone else be abnormally inclined.

    My first thought on seeing the trailer for Blindness was that it was going to be a French film.
