I live in a shoebox in downtown Toronto.  Sometimes I like to write about the things that I see and experience and share it with my friends.

There is only one rule for this blog – express yourself coherently, disagree if you must, but always play nice with the other kids.

Compliments for the owner are always welcome.

    (Compliment:) Well, your blog overall is admirable, both the presentation and your writing. I wish I were capable of as much, especially if confined in a shoebox.
    (Criticism:)However, as your blog is bound to be influential, could you please stop using “but hey….., right?” as it’s really rather irritating when repeated a lot, not only by you.

    OH and while I’m here, is there any chance of North Americans – and their imitators elsewhere – moving away from saying “nauseous” when they don’t mean nausea-inducing but actually queasy/unwell/sick/ill/nauseATED? This must have begun as an attempt to sound medical, or more elegant. But a nauseous mess doesn’t mean the mess feels sick, it means the mess makes YOU feel sick. I’m reminded of a friend of mine who used to baffle me saying things like “let’s take a gambit” and “whichever you like, I’m ambivalent”. There has to be some logic in language, and even when a malapropism has become common usage, fashion can still move away from it…

    Best regards,
