I am headed to my hometown next month. I promised my family that once I knew I had an apartment for July, I’d buy a plane ticket so I could be there for my niece’s 7th birthday (holy crap, how is she growing up that fast).
I missed my eldest niece’s birthday, so the plan is to pick up gifts for both of them before I head north.
I’m sure some of you can guess where I have to go shopping again.
I’ll be reciting my mantra "I love my nieces. I love my nieces." the whole time I’m there.
The Leafs have never met a lead they couldn’t give up.
I am now prepared to get thoroughly heckled at Madison Square Garden when my Leafs come to smack the Rangers around in March.
I decided to go with one of my favourite players, Tomáš Kaberle. He spent 12 seasons in blue and white (before being traded to the evil Bruins), and was, in my opinion, one of the best offensive defencemen to play the game.
Love me an offensive defencemen. That’s how I’d play.
My travel plans for next month. Wanna hang out?
A friend of a coworker is headed to Toronto for the weekend and asked for tips and suggestions about where to go.
One of my suggestions was the Royal Ontario Museum. In my reply, I said:
The Royal Ontario Museum is pretty great, except for the disgusting glass and metal monstrosity they added to it. It is a blight on my city.
This was regarding the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal renovation to the ROM that opened in 2007.
I realized how much native Torontonians can sound like Parisians bitching about the glass pyramid at the Louvre.
Seriously, though. Ugly as fuck.
