Just when I think my day can’t get any worse, my ex decides to have a meltdown and verbally assault the living shit out of me (almost getting physical). Fucking lovely.

Some passengers were trapped on a Toronto streetcar for a while this morning after a live hydro wire fell onto the vehicle. Authorities say the wire fell onto the streetcar’s roof and that the tracks were also electrified. lol

Gracing the new subway train amidst light snowfall along the Allen on my way to see a good friend. Feels like a good day.
Just finished watching Sophie’s Choice (1982), with Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, and Peter MacNicol. What a great, great movie.
Just got in from a late night movie. The cool air and separation from reality feels really nice after two straight days of family, and way too much food. I’m thinking my “Christmas” officially ends tonight. And there’s something about that period just after all the end-of-the-year holiday hype that leaves me feeling pensive.
Made Jiggs Dinner today! Feeling in tune with my inner Newfie. Jiggs dinner is a traditional meal commonly prepared and eaten on Sundays in many regions around the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Named after a comic strip character, the dish is sometimes spelled Jigs dinner or Jigg’s dinner. The meal typically consists of a combination of pickled salt beef (or salt...

Apple pie, lemon meringue pie, coconut cream pie, cinnamon cake, and ginger snaps. Oh god I’m exploding.
Turkey, potatoes, roast, cabbage, turnip, cranberry sauce, carrots, salt meat, pease pudding, and stuffing. It’s been an excellent Newfie dinner.
Ryerson’s marks were released today. It’s basically Ryerson’s little way of saying Merry Christmas (probably with a more sarcastic tone for most, I’m sure). I got an A+ in Geography of Toronto. It’s a great mark, I know, but I can’t tell if I should be happy with myself for doing so well, or disappointed in the course for being so easy. Either way, the mark...
And I made an espresso latte thingy with the Tassimo and now I can’t sleep, so I’ll just scan some negatives instead.

It turns out that I am in fact working more than two shifts next week. I’m working 5. My boss read the wrong schedule to me on the phone. So, that’s a total of 36 hours. This would be a good thing if they weren’t ALL closing shifts.

It must be amazing with the Christmas lights :) Did you take any pics? Actually, I did! I took a few shots on film. I’ll post a few once I get the roll developed and scanned.
I just got in from an evening with Trevor at the Toronto Christmas Market festival at the Distillery District. I have to say, there’s something about the way the Distillery looks when lit up by beautiful white Christmas lights strung everywhere with groups of strangers gathering around warm fire pits with the scent of hot chocolate, cooked food, and burning wood filling the air while...

fingolfin: Stephen Harper first became Prime Minister in 2006 and has already dramatically transformed the old Canada. But with no election due for four more years, we ain’t seen nothing yet. It’s in the nature of true believers and ideologues to believe that any means to their sacred ends are justified. This makes them extremely dangerous people. It’s also typical of such people that...
So, here’s that book I kept talking about. STEELES (view fullscreen to see text) The book is essentially about the idea of borders within metropolitan areas. I’m interested in how the existence of municipal borders—through the collective understanding of a population—redefine spaces as in-between, liminal places, while remaining part of a continuous urban fabric that...
