The two warehouses were side by side, sharing a single, enormous, brick wall along Peel Street. The sheer gargantuan size of the building gave us a feeling akin to vertigo. Within 5 seconds of staring at it I knew I wanted to get inside. One tiny, broken ground-level window revealed a dark, cavernous interior, a faint gasoline smell, an empty bottle of Perrier. The air coming out was colder than...
The 39 Steps
Yesterday was the most beautiful day. I went for a long walk with my friend Francis. We discovered these amazing abandoned warehouses. We tried to get in. Here are detailed instructions: -Take that metal barrier-thing that they use to block off streets sometimes. -Stand it up like a ladder, propping it up on the large pipe sticking out of the wall. -Climb makeshift ladder. -Swing your foot...

The cha-cha is no more ridiculous than life itself.– Metropolitan
Years ago my dad took me on vacation to Nova Scotia. We were eating lunch at a seaside restaurant, and I had been watching this very small child at a nearby table pick his way through a gargantuan platter of fries, when a seagull landed in his plate. The bird was probably the size of a large eagle and stood there, eating, as the boy cried. His horrified mother stared, agape. The waiter tried to...
English translations have been titled: -Le Grand Meaulnes (literally) -The Wanderer -The Lost Domain You should probably just read it in French. This is where I would put this really great quote, if I had it handy.
Le Grand Meaulnes
Is a really good book, for those who have some free time. And speak French. I’m under the impression that there are several English translations for just the title, which is not a good sign. I remember finishing it in one sitting and hating my French teacher (Monsieur Bois! The worst!) for making us read it. You can never fully appreciate a book you’re going to be graded on. I can...
What are good ones? By party tricks, I mean, of course, lame/impressive things that you do in awkward social gatherings with whatever you have at your disposition. I can do this cool thing with a matchbook and blow smoke rings. My plan is to learn to tie cherry stems into knots with my tongue next.

Columbian Marching Powder
It was probably around 1:30 in the morning, we were leaving the Belgo, my attention was fully focused on something in front of us (I’m almost 85% certain it was a man wearing really wide bell-bottomed pants made fluffy dalmatian patterned fabric) even though Francis was telling us a story. He was taking a smoke break from work, and a man walked up to him, asking for cocaine. Distracted, I...
White Night/White Heat
Apart from a lot of losing people/time/body heat, last night was pretty good. We started out at the CCA, where they were handing out free glasses of wine. There was also a room with giant beanbags, soothing music, and a disco ball. I decided we should stop by the McCord Museum because it was supposed to be turned into an Irish pub for the night, but it was just as boring as it generally is. They...
