BEHOLD! The finished house! (Ironically the outside is not in fact finished, paint needs to be applied to many surfaces, but it isn't structural paint.

Light and Balding man

Finished kitchen!

Here is Erin, she is in the front hall closet

Milton Bus Route

I'm posting this so that it is online so I can link to it from some where else.

Still, I would like to explain if for no better reason then to have a post!

The area I am showing is a municipal plan for my subdivision, and in blue is the existing bus route, I would like to propose the bus be redirected slightly so that it does less doubling back on itself, thus servicing more homes. Since the bus is the direct route to the Go Train, and the Go Train is the major artery for Toronto bound folk.

I think the line in red is pretty fair, the number of houses on 4th line between Derry and Clark are not that great, nor are they without service they just need to walk a little farther, but you add seriously increase the convenince for a much greater number of people who live off Clark. I understand the reason the bus does not currently make that route is because Clark West of 4th is new, but I feel my suggested route was possible already in the minds of the Municipal transit authorities when they made the route map. Anyways, here it is in all its glory.

A . . . lot not ALOT

This is a pet peeve of mine, actually, it is a pet peeve of my Grade 8 core teacher. (In my junior high your core teacher thought most subjects, but you would rotate to other class for specialized stuff like Science, Art and Music.) I digress, 'alot' is not a word, in spite of the majority of the internet believing it is. I don't think this is me being anal, or a stickler. It's a really simple, small thing that isn't so complicated that it should be restricted to the realm of scholars, and English majors. A lot of people do it, but that doesn't make it right, it just makes them ignorant. So please, for the love of the language, and my sanity, don't do it, just don't.

This rant has be brought to you by percolating my brain through the sludge scraped from the bottom of the World of Warcraft forums, a cesspool of internet diarrhea.

The following photo-poem like object I entitle WTF. That is because it embodies the thought that went through my head as without warning, and without cause, the sunroof on my mom's car exploded while driving down the 401. No bridges, no rocks, no falling birds, no insidiously planted incendiary devices, nor any gun shots fired at me, just sudden, spontaneous, failure of the glass.

What was most shocking was the noise, for those unaware safety glass breaks LOUD! Seriously it sounded like the world was ending. The sunroof is of course practically located in ones ear, so any sound it might make would be perceived as loud, but this was ear shattering (and glass shattering) loud.

The dealership refused to fix it under warranty because they claimed it must have been a "road hazard." I want to know what road hazard is above my car? If your thinking bridge, their was no bridge, nor was their any significant debris on the road, nor was I following close to anything that could have kicked up the non-existent debris. So to the dealer I say: "you are cheap", to my heart still thumping in my chest I say: "chill out," and to incorporeal forces bent to thwart my existence I say: "you lose!"

Please observe
