Spring in Toronto

Muppet in distress

This weekend, I am visiting Toronto, which always induces comparisons with Ottawa in which the capital city comes off looking badly. I like subways and shops that are open past 6:00pm. If this dire economy can provide space in Toronto for someone with no particular interest in private enterprise, perhaps I will find a way to relocate myself here over the course of the next few years.

Also, one quality for which Toronto should be praised is the availability of Gingerbons spicy and sweet ginger candy. They taste like a fantastic amalgamation of ginger and honey, and I have only ever seen them in a bulk food store on Bloor Street, a couple of blocks east of Jane.

Now, off for a late, greasy diner breakfast.

Sorry I missed you. Give me a shout next time before you come to TO.

I am also sorry to have missed you.

Unfortunately, I am unlikely to be in Toronto for a while. Emily will probably visit Ottawa next month, and will probably be in Vancouver for the summer.

That being said, I will definitely let you know.

When it comes to cities, you should love the one you’re with.

Who slaughtered Elmo?

I don’t know.

He is in a tree in Kensington Market, not far from Augusta Street.
