There's this huge pimp-looking guy that rides a stupid electric bike to work each morning. It's dumb. It's half motorcycle, half scooter...it's just ridiculous. He always cuts me off and never signals. He rarely obeys the rules of the road. It's very frustrating.
Today, he decided that instead of riding on the road, he was going to ride on the sidewalk. Keep in mind that this guy was probably going at least around 20km/hr - this is dangerous to have on the sidewalk!
About a minute into his ride, a police officer popped out from around the corner of the building and stopped this guy. I didn't see what happened, but this guy totally got his ass handed to him and I hope -HOPE- he got a ticket. Stupid guy.
Schadenfreude really makes me smile sometimes.

A label maker, a stack of documents and a new box of bright file folders. I really get off on colour-coding.

Fall time!

Cool weather, crisp air, leaves changing and baking; fall is here! I love it when the house smells like spicy orange-date loaves or roasting vegetables, and I can't get enough of long walks with warm coffee, sunshine and a cool bite to the air. I love love LOVE the fall!

The Milk program

I was listening to the radio the other morning and there was a commercial advertising for a milk program at elementary schools. It reminded me of being in elementary school and going every lunch to grab myself a milk. I wasn't a juice girl, I wasn't a pop girl;
I was a 2%, white milk child.

Since I bought milk every day, I had my name entered in (every day) to win "Milk" prizes and won a bunch of them. I have a notebook with cows dancing on the front of it, another notebook with cow spots, a wallet with someone surfing on a glass of milk...I won a ton of things from Milk.

Rustle rustle

In Toronto you don't fall asleep to the sound of crickets; you fall asleep to the sound of old Chinese women rustling through your recycling bin, looking for bottles to return to the Beer Store. I hear they make good cash.

Fresh flowers on the kitchen table

Coming downstairs to find freshly picked wildflowers on the kitchen table. A small bouquet of oranges, reds and yellows left by roommate Liz is a great start to the week.

Slow rides

I realized last night that biking can be very enjoyable and relaxing when you're not zooming around trying to get somewhere quickly. I tend to try and get places fastfastfast when I'm on my bike, but if I take my time and enjoy the ride I can see a lot more and don't get all sweaty and gross at the end of it. Imagine that.
