Efficent use of shelving.

'Hey Boss, where do you want me to put the little kid birthday cards?'

'Eh, put 'em near the best sellers.'

Sorry about the lame quality pic, but the convenience store guy thought I was trying to take pictures of his nudie magazine selection, and I didn't want to jeopardize the Drumstick transaction i was about to make.

Pretty sound advice, actually.

Oh, Treasure Hunters!

I've been at this for a while now, and I want to know what you think. I've added two buttons at the bottom of the posts 'Treasure' and 'Crap'.

It's one or the other.

Do or do not. There is no try.

You get it.

Click one, fool!

Oh, the usual. I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback.

Dude, 'Siamese' is not the preferred nomenclature.

Conjoined. Conjoined fire connection.

Those newspapers blow

... over in the wind.

Hull/Gatineau PQ

A little while ago, I went to Wakefield PQ and found some treasure along the way. If you weren't down for the ride (so that means if you're aren't my Labrador, you weren't), you can see the sights vicariously through me, here.

More recently I went to the Hull/Gatineau region of La Belle Province, and once again, I found some hidden street gems.

Part of the charm of the Hull/Gatineau region is that even the petty criminals love to play the Kazoo. I do too.

And another thing I like about this particular region, is that even the people who urinate publicly take the time and effort to make sure that people are aware of it, and no one steps in it on their way by.

If you ever get the chance to go, I strongly suggest that you do.

And if for nothing else, the beer is cheaper and they have off-track betting.

Litteral Jim

Strikes again!  Got a new job categorizing the movies at Netflix.

I never knew this existed!

So you mean to tell me that in a hospital parking lot, 43 seconds after my parking pass expires, I can run out to feed the meter and see you, diligent parking attendant (see meter maid), walking away from my car after just having placed a ticket under my passenger side windshield wiper.

You see me running toward my car, and make a gesture toward this machine.

Like a Dr. Pepper machine in the middle of the desert.

I am bestowed the privilege to use, nay, embrace the glory of paying a ridiculous parking ticket, right there one the spot.


More like Fun-o-Meter!

Looks to me...

like someone's moving company doesn't have a 'Health and Safety Committee'.

Because frankly, there is nothing safe about putting a panther in the cab of a moving truck.

A brief history

1855 - the region known as Bytown is incorporated into what we now know as the City of Ottawa.

December 31 1857 - Queen Victoria names Ottawa the Capital of what was then known as the Province of Canada.

May 29 1928 - sewers exploded, causing damage to much of the city. This happened again January 28 1931. The cause of these explosions was never determined.

September 5 1945 - Ottawa is the site on which many consider to be the start of the Cold War.

July 30 1971 - actor, comedian, writer, talk show host and rapper, Tom Green is born (in Pembroke, close enough).

Early 1990's - Ottawa establishes itself as a global leader in the field information technology, garnering the nickname 'Silicon Valley North'.

April 9 2011 - The Ottawa Senators complete yet another season without a championship.

July 21 2011 - temperatures skyrocket, making for one of the hottest days in recorded history. This causes City officials to urge citizens to be responsible in this unusually hot weather, and remain well hydrated.


July 21 2011 at 17:53 - I say, anything for you, sweet city. Anything for you.

I don't know about you...

...but after staring at this license plate for quite a while,

I can only reckon that it is meant to be pronounced 'Love Doodie'.

That said, I suppose its better to be 'pro' something than 'anti' something else.

Thats not a PT Cruiser

This is a PT Cruiser!

I see you've played Nissan Maxima-y  PT Cruiser-y before.

Thug Life

See, this is why people don't use pay phones anymore.

Thanks MMV, this rules!

Bowmanville Zoo!

On a recent trip to Fabulous Bowmanville, Ontario I drove by a particularly clever outpost of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.

Gather 'round kiddies, check it out!

'To prevent illiteracy, use a dictionary'

'Jesus Christ, God! Keep it down! I'm trying to sleep peacefully!'

Sweet log, Bro.

Just because something is on sale, it doesn't mean you have to buy it.

"Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless."

See what Kenny Powers thinks of you after the jump.

Whatchu gon do,

When your cruiser gets towed?
