Maybe I jut think the Bulk Barn has everything because it's the only place I know with a gluten-free starches section. Or maybe it's the whimsy.

You can take the kitchen out of the party, but...

Man, this Euro-party sure turned into a Canadian-style kitchen party right fast

A+ sounds good.

This sample came in the mail for a previous tenant. It looks rich in nutrients. And I'm Birth+, right?

Now if only I had an archaic power adapter

I was too hasty. The Bench of Giving does have lots of nothing on it, but it also sometimes has laptops.

Thanks to T and Mary, the next game of Agricola we play will either be livelier or.... unsettling.

Maybe it's just because RPATT, KSTEW and TLAUT weren't there

Customer service

After going kind of a long way to see what was wrong with my modem, They spent about 1 minute giving me this new one, no questions asked.  All told, I was in there for about 3 minutes.

Beau Monde

T works at a mall downtown where they don't mind if you drink free wine in the furs section of the Holt Renfrew, and the line-up for Louis Vuitton is security-patrolled,
And the escalators have spokesmodels,
and the classical trio plays downstairs
...while the harp jazz trio plays upstairs.
I'll let them play you out....

Many Days in One!

Too many good things today! I got to have lunch with famous writer and avowed butterfly gang member Rebecca Rosenblum!I got to see Steve play a matinee with Bramwell Park and the ghost of Stephen Tchir

I stunned a few more people with the Star Trek Interactive VCR Board Game
And found a good home for Data!
