The worse is going to a bar where the beer is 5.50, then with tip you end up with 3 bucks in change. Now a smart man would just use that change on beer number 3, but a man trying to impress a girl he has no chance with continues to pull out the $20 bill.
That's exactly how I build up so much change.

Bars and not using change to buy fresh drinks. End up with like $20-$30 of change.

So whatever happened in St.Paul, doesn't seem to be a lot of information or talk out there.

easy and painless way for me to save up for a road trip or even Eskimo season tickets, as a recent example.

Are there any cheaper dry cleaners in Edmonton? Was in the states for work a few months ago. $2 pants dry cleaning was the norm. C *nts everywhere here seem to charge $8-$10, but no other options.

Welcome to Canada, where everything is over-priced because our economy is booming.

Most libraries have used-book sales. I don't know if EPL does but they probably do. Call them. Hurry as they're usually this time of year.

They do once a year. I remember going to one and they had a lot of books on sale. I was at the downtown one a few years back around this time. Check it out.

Cleveland has had some serious luck with the NBA lottery.

Won it today with a 1.7% chance of moving up from 9th.

Good possibility they pick Wiggins and have the historic 2 only 1st overall Canadian drafted players ever.

Wiggins unlike Bennett deserves the opportunity to be picked 1st overall.

There was nothing wrong with Bennett going number 1 overall last year in a notably weak draft, where teams could really draft for need.

they do it at least twice a year. In the summer they have a huge one in Churchill square.

In the past, they have also had a book tent at the Fringe. I'm not sure if they still do that, as I haven't been to the fringe in several years.

Smoking dope.

Drinking Corona.

Gazing at the black night sky beside a fire.

Nothing beats a backyard in Edmonton.

first world rant.

While I appreciate when a coworker buys me a coffee, why do they have to bring one with cream in it?
If you surprise someone with a coffee and don't know what they take, you should bring it black and let them add what they want.

I personally hate cream or milk in a coffee or tea.

Probably more people drink coffee with cream in it these days than otherwise. They were playing the %'s.

Can I PLEASE ask for people to look at this picture and UNDERSTAND how this intersection works so we all can drive safely?



This is 43 Ave and 34 street. I have CLEARLY marked on there how that corner should be done. However, people seem to think the Left Turning lane is also the straight lane. NOT IT IS NOT! I had an argument with a dumb chick who thinks that is a straight lane. I told her NO it is not! And I can PROVE it. So here is a picture. PLEASE share with others who use this corner. THIS IS HOW IT IS DONE!

Ahh yes. I live by there and I hate when people do that.

I think what causes confusion for some people is the lines.

So I get to go to the outdoor movie theater that is starting out in the Warburg area. This should be a blast.

Classic example of marketing. Its really odd. How could people possibly like Mexican beer?

Great beer is borne of two things;

Great craftsmanship, great water.

Something Mexico has neither of in any great supply...

I do like Tequila. But not generally the **** that comes out of Mexico now.

I'm curious about this. What outdoor theater? Tried googling it, found nothing.

I miss drive in theaters. Really think its a case where audience really didn't get a choice and that real estate prices killed the venues.

I could even see more top end drive in experience, higher prices, better food, etc. or even taking place in high end campgrounds and such. Nothing better than watching a good movie under the stars.
