flagstaff coffee mug

(no subject)

Nothing UntiedUnited does is ever on time and my captain from RDU to IAD was less old than I am, but I made it across the border unscathed and with luggage in tow.

I've decided that Toronto is the Chicago of Canada. And by that I mean: when can I move here? OK maybe that's totally a snap decision after having been here five hours, but yeah, so far Canada appears to be all it's cracked up to be. It's clean, it's a pleasant combination of lovely old brick and shiny modern. They have enough water that you could pretend it's coastal. The people are friendly, the money has pretty colors, and they have the Bs. Jay offered "beer, bacon, and more bacon" but my inclination is to redefine the third one as "boys".

Had dinner at The Siddhartha and a cup of coffee with Josh and his girlfriend.

Alaina has the coolest house I think I've ever seen.

I'm here until Wednesday with no real plan. Probably just get a subway map and a day pass and wander around. Need to see Q9, chow at Tim Hortons. What else?
