Back in the Big Smoke!

I was out of the country for a few months.  Then I was ultra-busy with my job for a while.  But now I’m back!  And I obviously have lots of things on which I want to make commentary.

Some of the stuff that has changed since I left:

1. The AGO has an opening date – November 14! – although if you drive by its Dundas Street location, it looks as if they’ll need an army of people working around the clock to have it ready for the public in 2 weeks.

2. The U of T football team actually won a game! (2 in fact, whodathunkit?)  In beating the Waterloo Warriors on September 1, 2008 (and subsequently, beating the York Lions on September 13) the Varsity Blues broke a 49-game (and nearly 7 YEAR!) losing streak.  Good for you, Blues, good for you.

3. The stock market plummeted.  A (figurative) rain cloud hovers above the Bay Street financial district.

Some of the stuff that has NOT changed since I last wrote:

1. The Bay begins decorating for the Christmas season about 2 weeks prior to Halloween.

2. The Trump International Hotel & Tower is still just a big pit in the ground.

3. The Toronto Maple Leafs (despite being the most valuable NHL francise, according to Forbes Magazine) still suck.

I sure am glad to be back in Tzero!
