Finally watched Warrior. That isn't usually my kind of flick, but damn, that was well-done.

The amount of burritos I've eaten in the last 2 weeks is insane.

Yeah, I watched Warrior last week after seeing some guys recommended this on this forum. Wow, fantastic movie!

The more I watch Tom Hardy in movies, more I become a big fan of him.

Some days I do like the LA weather.

Yep. I lived those temperatures for over 20 years every winter when living in Timmins.

I don't miss it at all.

At the moment here in Kitchener it's -8C and -14C with the wind.

Not too bad.

It's so weird not having to shovel snow here though. Both because we live in an apartment building and mainly because Kitchener doesn't get 3/4 of the snow that Timmins does.

We have about 5-6 inches on the ground where I live in Pittsburgh, and it's been in the 20's.

This was the first snow I've seen in Pittsburgh really in the last 24 months.

Atlantic Canada's snow is late, at least in the part where I live. However, it has been coming in full force as of late. We got a **** load on the weekend and are supposed to get more this week. It was only a matter of time I guess.

What is the pollution situation in LA these days?



Also, I don't love hot weather, but I hate snow. Therefore, it seems I could only ever live in far southwest Canada. Sorry Canada

So my fiancee finally surprised me earlier last night with what was my late Christmas gift. She bought me a Guinness tshirt and 2 more collector's edition Guinness pint glasses. The shirt looks so ****ing sick.

Honestly not half as bad as I expected. On most days it's not really noticeable, but there was a definite haze in the summer. At this time of year I'd say the air quality here is far better than it is in Missoula (which gets an awful inverse in the winter, where all the pollution from Seattle and Portland get stuck in the mountain valleys.

LA is far from perfect, but it's certainly not the picture I had of it...the common perception seems to be stuck in 1992.


What blew my mind today was that I found out that one of the regular police officers that comes in every day is from Upper St. Clair. I'm used to finding Pittsburghers from random neighborhoods everywhere, but I've never actually found one from where I'm from (born in USC; raised in Bethel Park).

Anyone ever take a long-distance train?

I'm thinking of doing a cross-country ride, either to Vermont or Montréal this Spring.

My parents loved it, but they're old people who feel the need to stop the car and pee every 90 minutes. being on a train and not having to stop for the aforementioned pee was huge for them.

Who's got the whiskey? I need to get hammered.

I'd love to do it. I've done very short rides, and I honestly believe train is the best way to travel. I want to take a train when I go south next. It's a 24 hour ride, which doubles about the time it takes to drive (more than doubles the way I have driven it before, as I've done Pittsburgh to Charleston, SC in 9.5 hours. It'd take about 24 hours by train). That being said, it's a stress free way to travel. You can kick back and relax. I took a train from San Diego to LA about 9 years ago when I went on vacation with family. It was great.

After hearing that bloody song for the entire summer and into autumn, I finally caved a couple of weeks ago and actually sing along to it. I'm gonna blame Uncle Gary and the Don.

reading Edouard Perroy's The Hundred Years War. fascinating stuff. but why is it that all the best books are out of print? it's a travesty. i'll just have to brace myself for the following:

on May 16th 1364 at Cocherel, near Mantes, the machinations of Charles the Bad were foiled by some dude named Duguesclin. John the Good could not be reached for comment because he done been dead.
