commuting is awesome

i work in oakville and i live in toronto. so that means about a 32 km drive to work every day. it's really fun (see above traffic crap). you know what makes my drive tolarable? knowing that once in the land of the big box stores i can go to a tim hortons drive through. it's the kind of thing that was only enjoyed on road trips or weekend jaunts to the cottage. but because i'm a commuter now i get to go every day. but this morning (after having a clothing dilemma that made me leave late) i swung into my local timmys and the drive through line was stoopid long. so i parked and walked in. excellent idea i thought, this will make things go much faster. and it did! until i got back to my parking spot and found my car blocked in by a woman driving a hummer. seriously, a freaking hummer! i gave the little "hey get out of the way" toot of my horn and she just did the palms to that sky "what do you want me to do??" symbol. grrrrr..... i don't know lady, um, how about pulling your behemoth of a freaking military truck out of my way? so i was late to work because i had to wait for her kid to come out of the tims (which only took like 2 minutes, but still!) before she'd move. amazing.

for you fat stuff

it's hard to tell but the car in front of me at the drive through yesterday had the licence plate "FATTYS"

giant pink bunny

on Colletto Fava mountain side near the village of Artesina a group of austrian artists called Gelatin have built a giant pink bunny. the artists hope that the rabbit will stay on the mountainside for 20 years. they are encouraging people to climb it and look out over the italian countryside from atop a giant pink bunny tummy. the artist statement includes the line "i love the rabbit the rabbit loves me."

we're not going to take it, NO! we're not gunna take it

at queens university (my alma mater) on the weekend there was a street party that turned into a spoiled white kid "riot". over 5000 people partied on aberdeen st. the police made something like 35 arrests. the Kingston Police Chief Bill Closs described the scene as "a drunken street brawl," and said his officers were "subjected to the most vile and disgusting behaviour that a police officer could possibly encounter." WHAT THE CRAP? have you SEEN kingston? now i know that breaking glass and turning over a car is no sunday school meeting - but do you think that maybe these kids are ready to snap at the pressure of needing something like a freaking 95% avg to get in? if a kingston police officer sees a street party as the most disgusting behaviour possible then i say we should all quit our jobs and move to kingston-Shangri-La.
it was never this punk rock when i was there.

go fug yourself... amazing, fantastic, wonderful

i came across this site yesterday. it had been recommended to me by a friend! this wonderful page kept me from completing my very important wal-mart work this afternoon! there are gems of fashion faux-pas neatly organized in subsections such as Breast Police, Britney Spears, Paris and Niki Hilton. the descriptions are the best part.
