Tired boy

Earlyish night for me tonight. Youngest niece J kept my sister up all last night, not that I was aware of the noise upstairs – it’s amazing how deep you sleep after a skinful – and so we came home from the pub fairly early. That suited me, as I’m

Hair of the dog

Gah – I hate hangovers! It’s difficult to tell where my cold starts and the hangover finishes, but I’m feeling much better this afternoon after about 25 cans of Coke. I’m still coughing like 60-a-day smoker but not feeling too bad overall. To complete my recovery (or maybe cause a

Go Leafs Go!

I’m a little pissed. This is due to the quantity of Canadian beer that I have consumed over the last few hours. Here is evidence: Anyway, tonight’s game was very good. The Leafs managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by conceding a goal late on and then

Hockey time!

It’s almost time for me to head out to see my first game of hockey. Phil and I will be having a few beers in some bar somewhere while a friend of Phil’s will actually be at the game. I’m expecting to drink a few, though maybe not as many

Jerk

Toronto has a rich multiculturalism thing going on. There are all sorts of ethnic groups around here – at least four Chinatowns and a Little Italy – plus a strong Caribbean influence in parts. Today I have had a delicious introduction to a part of the Jamaican (or thereabouts) influence

Monster walk

I like walking. I’d much rather spend an hour walking than have a half-hour uncomfortable bus ride, although sometimes time-constraints come into play. Today, I’ve walked downtown again. The last time I did that I missed off a large part of the harbour area, so I wanted to revisit that

The day we went to the Islands

I’ve had another lovely day here in sunny Toronto. As it was Sunday and my brother-in-law Phil was around we decided that we’d go on a family day out to “The Islands” – a picturesque collection of islands out in Lake Ontario. We only seemed to stay on the one

Fresh Homo Milk

Come and get your fresh Homo milk here: I wonder how many Homos it takes to make one container? Or if they self-milk or have a machine to do it for them? They must have a large collection of Homos somewhere to make so much of it – I just

Bad Uncle Davey

I’m such a bad, bad Uncle. We were down at the farm this morning having a nice time looking at pigs, sheep and cows. H was a little whingy today but J was doing a good job of sleeping all day in one of those backpack things that you can

I’m sick

I’m not well, and not in the potential commital sense. I’m almost convinced that I’ve caught some lurgy from my nieces, but there’s always the chance that I got this from my new housemates before I left last week. Yesterday I had a bit of a sore throat then when

No poo on my fingers

I’ve had an eventful day today. This morning was possibly the most stressful day that I’ve had since, I don’t know, Saturday. I was tasked with babysitting my little, baby niece for a whole three hours! A three hour period that might require me to do things that I’d rather

Not quite pissed

I’ve been out for a few beers with my sis and I have a nice little buzz going. Not too much mind – we weren’t out long enough for that – but we’ve had a nice time. It’s always good to catch up with family over beer, and my sis
