  1. Hello Canadian men, just dropping in to say thanks again for all your advice and help about my trip. I had a really wonderful time in Canada. Your people were super nice to me and I did all the things I wanted to. I cheered the Habs on to victory, and the Bluejays too. I got a cute Bluejays jersey and I took this picture of the Habs game for y'all: In Toronto I did a ton of stuff. My favourite things were probably going out at night in Kensington Market, cycling around the Islands on a sunny day, and eating unlimited hot dogs and nachos at the Bluejays game. Thanks again to everyo
  2. Congrats, dude. PM me a baby pic if you're cool. I'm going by rail between all my destinations. 3 journeys and I'm only paying 100 bucks - pretty awesome value, plus trains are nicer, smoother, more punctual and more scenic than buses in general. Love train travel. Whoever dissed Ottawa: I'm only staying there for two full days, but I'm pretty psyched for it. I'm meeting up with an old friend there, plus I have now met the Speaker of your House of Com mons and his office are going to give me a little hospitality while I'm there, so it should be a great time. I am a Par lia ment ge
  3. Not facetious, I am genuinely ignorant about Toronto. Never been to Canada before. Re: Yorkville, I dig cool jazz clubs, that sounds right up my alley. p.s. hey MDG, what's up? You got kids now?
  4. Lol. If Zach wants a reference he can ask strategy/InternetExplorer. He's my ex-boyfriend. Man, I love me some Taco Bell. I feel like you can't go to fast food joints in town most places though? Maybe I'm wrong but I'm used to Taco Bells as drive thrus and I don't drive.
  5. Sweet, I will for sure watch the Bourdain video. I'll be staying just off Clarence Square, very close to the CN Tower. No car, I'll be relying on public transport. In terms of stuff I like: local/craft beers, food markets, vintagey stuff, nature/beauty spots, independent cafes and coffee shops, quirky stuff, food in general (nb: I'm vegetarian). I'd like to go places that locals go to rather than just touristy places, and it would be good to know places where I can go chill and read a book or something if I get tired of wandering around. Definitely want to visit all these different ethnic
  6. I just want something nice and fitted (for ladies) that has the cute bird logo on it. Such a girl. Thanks for the advice y'all, I bought my ticket for the "Habs" today, $50 and not far from the centre line (but high up). Happy with that outcome! If any Torontonians or whatever the word is want to recommend me some cool place to go, feel free to shoot me a PM with your tips, it would be much appreciated. I'm there for a week so I've got time to do less touristy thing, explore neighbourhoods etc.
  7. Thanks, yes I am from London, England. Once a Canadian friend of mine told me she was going to London and I got all excited that we could hang out. That's how I learned about London, Ontario. I already got my ticket for the Jays game yesterday, I could have gotten it super cheap but I wanted all that food. I also want to buy a Bluejays shirt while I'm out there but I read that it's much cheaper to get one in Target so I guess I'll have to try to get to one on public transport. Looks like it'll be 2 buses, 1 hour to get there from my hostel, damn it. The hockey game will be pre-season i
  8. The 'grand slam combo' means you pay extra and you get unlimited hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts, soft drink and apples. Yes, apples. I don't think they do it very often, but I read about it on a few blogs and it sounded good to me. I love ballpark food. Thanks for the insight guys, sounds like Montreal is a winner if I can get affordable tickets. I looked on stubhub earlier and it seemed cheaper than the Leafs but now I am doubting my research...
  9. Hi internet hockey men from Canada. Can I ask you a question? I'm heading to Canada in a few weeks to do a little travelling (Quebec City - Montreal - Ottawa - Toronto). I'd like to see a hockey game while I'm over there. Maple Leafs is too expensive for my taste, but I have options to see Mont. Canadiens vs. Ott. Senators (in Ottawa) or Mont. Canadiens vs NJ Devils (in Montreal). Can anyone recommend which game would be better to watch, and whether it matters where my seats are? Thank you in advance if anyone gives me advice. Unrelated note: I'm going to a Bluejays game when I'm i
  10. I was surprised at this elimination, it was clearly just a bad week for him. I think had the judges kept their save and used it on him he mighta gone on to win. That said, **** changing the words to "He's all I need" etc. Get your Godloving off my ****ing screen. Go pray and cry with that little blonde girl from the X Factor (Reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DOEtfhUU-M). Christians are not the underdog, it's not some huge ****in deal for you to "come out" as Christian on TV and dedicate all your lameass ballads to "Him". Argrghrgrh.The judges are unduly harsh on Elise and I think tha
  11. I have the fine-drawn face of an intelligent Jewess.
  12. A-het-hem: you rang?Case Study:Once I was in da club with my friend and she was chatting to a real loser. This situation led to me sitting next to the loser's workmate, who was actually pretty cute and normal-seeming; score for me. We had a good chat, he pretended to be interested in my embroidery, I pretended to care about his shitty job, and at the end of the night he asked for my email address (oh our modern world). I went to write it down, but then he gave me his instead. I got home, googled-stalked the heck out of him, looked at his MySpace etc, and nothing off-putting came up. But I had
  13. They strayed really far from what made the show great in the first place. Like early in the first season when the chemistry was building between Rachel and Finn and she spoke out at the Chastity Club about how F'ed up it was. Then suddenly the next season she is being a huge prude about sex, they even made her wear a ridiculous long seventies dress in the house party episode... they just sucked all the fun out of that. I agree too about too many "issues" and taboos etc. The first few episodes dealt with little issues like crushes, sexuality, identity etc but they weren't all overcoming shit ev
  14. I thought it was really weak that they put Quinn in a wheelchair. For one thing a death would have been brave.For another thing she didn't even look scratched up.For another another thing she didn't even seem affected by it, and she has historically been the most negative, cynical person in the show. The only character I really enjoy these days is Blaine, and he is by far the best performer.The Finn/Rachel storyline has gone down the pan. Mercedes/Sam was never interesting. Things generally got a bit too serious and too coupley.Wondering what the new group will be like when this lot graduate..
  15. I didn't think Jessica Sanchez was worth saving, she's not unique enough. At this point I think they would have saved anyone except Holly. Possibly Elise or Philip.
  16. Reggae girl was awful every time and I don't know how she ever made it in.I'd definitely have taken Charlotte Sometimes over Jordis Unga.That MC guy Moses should never have been picked over The Line, Xtina did them a real injustice. They shoulda picked Blake for their mentor. Moses never had a shot.Felt bad for Sarah, the MJ Blige style singer, she had potential, but Ashley killed it in her final song so she deserved to be kept.The two older black guys both disappointed me and I was surprised they were both safe.Erin - good performance, good makeover.Raelynn - not amazing, don't think she'll w
  17. Yeah probably mainly because I liked the song, but I thought it was fun and enjoyable and I liked him doing uptempo instead of another bland, sentimental ballad.
  18.

  19. Revisiting my first impressions: On another note, I was really disappointed with The Voice battles in the last episode. I thought the judges made some terrible decisions.Pip vs Nathan - Pip was way more confident and charismatic, easy choiceShields Brothers vs Erin - Erin tries far too hard to be different and edgy, it's really annoying. I thought the Shields Bros had it, really surprised that they were oustedJonathas vs Ashley - 2 weak acts, I thought they were as boring as each otherJermaine vs Alex - The song choice was so much more suited to Jermaine, it was his to lose and not surprisi
  20. I'm finally reading Infinite Jest. I'm about 20% through (Kindle makes me watch the % go up). Getting into it, but all the detail about drugs and stuff gets a bit much sometimes. I'm at my most captivated when stuff is actually, you know... happening. Rather than detailed descriptions about complex buildings that I cannot imagine even with all his help, or long lists of medications and their different effects. I like the actual stories. It was the same with The Pale King... I read a big chunk of it, and the only bit that really stuck with me was one story about a girl with a troubled upbringin
  21. You rang?I can also offer embroideries fashioned out of leaves, coconuts and seaweed. And if you want your precious human race to continue, you'll damn well pretend to like them. I haven't gone for the full hysterectomy yet, but I am considering it if only for a flatter stomach.
  22. I can't remember all the battles match-ups but..Adley Stump vs Raelynn - I hated Adley just for her stupid hair. Also her dumb name sticks in the mind. I didn't think she was a great singer. Neither is Raelynn but she is pretty and cutesy so I gave her the edge. She sings in a pretty annoyingly over-stylised way though. Didn't like either but then again I hate country music.2 black guys - Both very good singers, I agreed with the eventual choice.Opera guy vs pretty girl Monique Benabou or something - I really thought Monique hit it out of the park and couldn't believe they put through the oper
  23. The judges really bring this show down. "America's choices" were mostly decent choices, then the judges threw back in 3 lame potatoes. Fat Mexican guy? 0 star potential, very ordinary voice, nothing unique or memorable about him. No chance of making it to the finals.Long curly haired falsetto guy? So 90s. Not current or relevant at all. Terence Trent D'Arby already happened, nobody cares anymore.Erica Van Pelt? Chubbier, poor man's Kelly Clarkson wannabe. Great voice for a wedding singer or a karaoke hero.And they pick these three over more unique and memorable people like Reed Grimm who I LOV
  24. Yeah I know the backstory. It is pretty sad to imagine what more could have come from the guy. I plan to read Neon Bible too but don't expect it to be nearly as good.
