    Air travel prices still suck

    by  • 11/8/2007 • music, travel • 1 Comment

    If I were planning to go see Neubauten in Berlin in May 2008, this is what I’d be looking at for prices… Travel agents make things as hard as humanly possible by advertising prices without tax in order to lure you in. Bastards. Still have some time to poke around before buying the 33 ticket […]

    I have a better idea

    My idea is pretty simple, and it will speed up lines at airports across North America… WASHINGTON The government’s terrorist watch list has swelled to more than 755,000 names, according to a new government report that has raised worries about the list’s effectiveness. — USA Today It’s simple, and involves less work in ongoing […]

    So, assuming The Student in the family can pull off good marks, I was thinking that might call for a Vancouver blitz around the end of April for a week or so. 7-11, JJ Bean, Kolachis, Chinese steam buns, cheap sushi, decent Indian food, a couple nights at The Cobalt.

    In Halifax, of all places

    September is coming together

I was planning to actually put together a costume involving a bathrobe, boxers and t-shirt, combined with a towel and a teacup, but even that seems like […]
