Smooches and Smacks: Dark Mornings and Dumb Neighbors

Smooches: to the morning.
Some of my fondest childhood memories involved waking up on dark, fall mornings to a pot of hot tea and porridge on the table. Funny enough, this is still the way I prefer to start the day so it was with snuggly, sleepy-eyed joy that I started today in the dark. It was one of the first mornings in a long time when I have actually had to flip on the lights to make my way around. Don't get me wrong I still enjoy the rays that comes through my east-facing windows - but sometimes I just find the sun a bit too obnoxious for 7am...or even 8am.

Smacks: to my neighbors. I understand that there are several things wrong with my new condo building. The management sucks, the new gym is abysmal, 10 months in and the hallways and elevators still aren't finished...the list goes on. This however does not mean that we need to act like savages. This image was the scene in my mailroom last night. There was a piece of junkmail put into our boxes and I suppose in order to protest the fact that a recycling bin was over 5 metres away residents were forced to drop said mail like it was hot. Insane. I didn't realize that I was living in a daycare where basic concepts of human decency needed to be explained in low-literacy, ESL terms.
