Off The Wall User Sound
My only request was anywhere but Globe Market, since the few times i was there, they couldn't get their heads out of their asses. And i think my only 2 choices there are cheese related....
We thought about Solid Grouds, but the menu online had me aghast -- 7 bucks for a peanut butter sandwich? No thanks.
We ended up at Off The Wall, having had a decent dinner there many moons ago and we vaguely recalled something about lunch specials.
I reckon we should have run when the server told us what they had run out of. I think, too, the cook (no way i would call him a chef) ran out of something as well, but i am way to polite to say. Suffice it to say that any cook that can't make french fries that are cooked all the way through and actually warm (forget about hot), perhaps needs a refresher in cookery. Even i know that warming up a plate really helps keep food warm to bring out to customers. Sheesh.
My veg burger was moderately good, if barely warm. The salad dressing (my second choice, they ran out of the one i asked for) was very good, though. Best thing i can say about the meal. 'Cause i can bitch about the price... not worth it, peeps, not worth it.
On a sweeter note...
I changed my user sound. Title track to the album Car Wheels On a Gravel Road by Lucinda Williams.

I Could Beano Better...
I tried a few things here and there, the symptoms went away for a little bit, but they always came back. I was chatting with some friends and they recommended enzymes. Then, i saw a commerical and thought i would get me arse online and look into a few things. The Beano website was eyeopening. Particularly the section on Complex Carbohydrate Intolerance.
Now, it's been 3 whole days and my gut feels better than it has in, well, years. Nothing is perfect and not all the symptoms are gone completely, but it feels liberating to not have cramps 24/7. I feel human...
Hope this doesn't jinx this. It feels so precarious.
On another note, i think the lil grey mousey i saw dash out from under our stove is hiding out in our sofa now. Poor thing nearly scared the piss outta me about an hour ago when it scurried its fuzzy behind up over the top of the sofa and behind some pillows.

Ducks, Voting and Anniversaries
Right now, (e:Uncutsaniflush) is voting. I've never been overly political, but i have always tried to stay somewhat informed and voted. Well, until i moved here. Can't vote here. Not a citizen. I'm just a resident.
I fed ducks yesterday. They insisted. We left them and went to get them some healthy food (wild bird seed). They ate right outta my hand...

How Canadians Are Different
I remember we watching a CityTV film when he was visiting Canada and the word "Mother" was bleeped out, but "Fucker" wasn't.
Sex isn't taboo in Canada. It's not something to be hidden from children. It's something to be learned about, to be taught responsiblity about...
But i still giggled like a school girl when i saw this...
Yeah, ok, i know, the name has got to be Salon Swank. Maybe i should have purchased that tshirt with the finger pointing to someone beside me that said "wanker" on it in the Brit shop down the road?

We got a rocking chair yesterday, that's all.
Here it is...
And here it is in our space...

It's All Her Fault
Whenever my mom decides to visit us for the weekend, the weather turns bad. It's been a little while, but the last time she was here it was warm and sunny and pleasant for at least a week before she arrived. Then, bam, cooler weather! She doesn't like cold weather. Why she lives in Canada, then, is beyond us, but she does.
So, on behalf of BossMom... sorry for the bad/windy/rainy/cold weather this weekend.
She's supposed to be busy for a while and may not be able to visit before the xmas holidays... so we might be safe for a while!

I hope i don't have to call the Buffalo News every morning!
