Overheard in Toronto

So last night tim was talking about this amazing site http://www.overheardinnewyork.com/ where people can record random crazy things that they've overheard on the streets of New York. Then today, while I was locked inside the train during a power outage I heard the saddest thing from a four year old girl;


"Daddy, this can't get any worse. First the burglar at home and now the power's out on the train, what could happen next?"


adorable. and we all know my general feelings toward the younger members of the human race...primarily that they should be kept indoors reading hardcovers until they're old enough to understand the rules of public transit. number one on that list being: no talking.

The big condo...

so matt and i went to see the big new condo at the corner of yonge & wellesley....appropriately named "the cosmopolitan". loves it.

it was quite george and the porn in the bathroom was a lovely touch i thought.
got a good idea of the space, where things could fit, and the different colours i might want to use. not sure if the exhibitionist windows should be covered or not. it is in wellesley village after all, maybe i'll inspire a drag queen somewhere...who knows.
