Giving Thanks in Halifax

by chinwhat at 9:08 p.m.

I’m thankful for everyone agreeing to go out east for our annual TeamID Thanksgiving excursion.

I’m thankful for my patience for I really wanted to punch Shaun for destroying me in Tetris.

I’m thankful for everyone having to drive except for me. Mang, on our way there, that 22hour trip… >shakes head< I feel ya’lls pain!

I’m thankful for The Team taking the states side route, for without it, I wouldn’t know there was a Mexico in Maine.

I’m thankful for technology for it is great. WAR GPS systems. Tomorrow today!

I’m doubly thankful for technology for it also allowed us computer nerds to have multiple laptops on at the same time during our ride down.

I’m thankful for donair. Beef and spices mysteriously blended together to form a delicious giant piece of processed meaty goodness.

I’m thankful for ai’s cheapness in picking The Courtyard Marriott, a nice place to stay especially since it offers free Interweb access.

I’m thankful for the cold waters of the maritime. Excellent breeding grounds for delicious lobster which filled my belly >pat pat pat<

I’m thankful for the multiple bees that don’t sting during my breakfast enjoyed on the patio by the waters of Halifax Harbour.

I’m thankful for Chinese people who proved to me that Halifax wasn’t exclusively full of white people.

I’m thankful for too-young girls who were in Halifax playing in a volleyball tournament.

I’m thankful for the well trained staff of the greatest lobster restaurant I’ve ever been to: The Five Fisherman.

I’m thankful for not having to sleep besides Shaun on a regular basis. Sometimes when he snores, it sounds like a baby Ewok crying. At other times, it sounds like a frog drowning in carpenters glue.

I’m thankful for the kind gentleman in Fredicton’s Harvey’s for he provided my hamburger with three slices of pickles. Thanks dog!

I’m thankful for Quebec and poutine.

I’m thankful for beautiful, well dressed French Canadian women. C’est si bon!

I’m thankful for punkage.

But most of all, I’m thankful for my friends. I don’t think my life would be as fun as it is with out them. (insert gay “aww” here)

Attack of the Cute Art Girls Pt 2 (aka Nuit Blanche 2K7) Picture Remix

by chinwhat at 4:08 a.m.
My quick take/experience:

- waking up at 10:00pm tired as d’hell from an all day softball tourney. I really didn’t want to go. My body said ‘no’ but my stubbornness said ‘yes’. This kinda reminded me of LasVegas when Shaun came back to the hotel room at Xo’clock in the morning and said to Al & I “I thought you guys were going out?” “We are” >got out of bed and left until the sun came up<

- way more people this year which was cool. That means it’ll be even better next year, right? I read in The Star that the TTC wasn’t ready for the amount of people that came out. pwnd1

- favorite exhibit: there was a video camera set up pointing to a stage where people can go up and get themselves projected onto a giant screen. In the background of the screen was the episode of The Simpsons with the Ten Commandments in the beginning. Techno music was being played in the background. It was funny watching people watch themselves on the big screen dance funny and make funny faces.

- Best surprise: I wound up walking through UofT’s Hart House, not really planning to check it out. they had a bunch of kick ass things there but the best was this “Dance w/the Professor” thing. I walked into the room and people were slow dancing to Aaliyah’s “At Your Best” Wicked!!

- LowerBay subway station was cool

- Notable: there was an exhibit that showed that old nuclear video w/the house getting blown up. You know that one? That footage you’d see in a Rage Against The Machine music video. They had an *old* map of Toronto from 1950something. I looked up Mississauga and my area. It was called Fairview Heights and only had Fairview Road, Palgrave and Joan Drive. That was it! No Central Pkwy, no Confederation, nothing! Just that and Hurontario!

- LOTS of cute art girls this year. Way more than last year. I think I fell in love with the art person at Queen’s Park. She had nice black hair, and was dressed nice. And she likes art! I think she was mixed… I couldn’t tell her background. Anyways, that exhibit was alright. A person would write something on some paper and it would be projected onto a big screen. Then there were a couple of people who’d translate whatever was written into a couple different languages. When I got there, some guy was writing about how he’s a guitarist and is needs money or something. It was funny. All was cool until some random chick came up next and started to write “The light began to shine through the leaves of sycamore tree…” I was like “What the fuck is this? GTFOOHWTHBS!” and I walked away.

All in all, a great time. I don’t think I’ll be making it into Torontoist this year due to my lateness of this post, hahahaha, but who knows… Can’t wait for next year! (pics next post cuz of stupid Interweb errors!)
