So, the house is clean, ready for the dog/house sitter, just gotta pack my bags.

I have a bunch of sauces to bring/swap/give away, so any Cdns wanting to try some aussie gear, there's still time to PM me.

I haven't flown internationally for about 6 yrs, and am kinda nervous about sitting on a plane for 9hrs and 13 hrs. I think t's because I'm a smoker, and havent been awake w/out a smoke for so long since my last int'l flight. Gum or patches? Gotta get something..

RS

Take this appertunity to quit.

Have a safe flight!!!!

Penny and chillilover, where in ON are you guys? I'm travelling to Ottawa from Toronto via 60 Hway, got some family to visit up there, so if you're out that way I'd be glad to drop off some sauces.

Potawie, I'd gladly drop some stuff in if you like coz i think you're nr Ottawa?

Otherwise, pm me addresses.

Thanks IGG, would make me richer!
A small, confined space with people potentially stronger, more supported by the law is no place to give up smoking cold turkey, get anxious and angry...

Sorta like coming down off a bad trip in a police cell with a 6ft5, 350lb guy called Bubba. Not wise.

I got here safe and sound, no hairy moments.

I had the longest Sunday ever, it lasted about 35 hrs... About 24 or so were daylight as I started in AUS early in the morning, traveling north to Korea, and then east in the northern latitudes, where it's sunny for most of the day.

Oh, and met at the airport by my wife and a box of TH donuts, O Canada!

Dear lord life certainly is hard for a student :(

Hope you have a blast Ringa. Hey did you know that in 1909 Canada passed a law that prevented poor people from entering Canada for any reason???
The person who says it cannot be done, should not interrupt the person doing it.

Then that explains the customs official asking how much luggage i had... prolly thought i was planning on overstaying my visa.

Have fun RS, good time to be away from OZ it's too cold here.


anything below 20C is cold for a queenslander, so I guess it's cold here too.

1. The toilets are not water efficient. It's like going in a small swimming pool.

2. The water goes the WRONG WAY down the plug hole in the shower

3. The stars are all wrong (where's my southern cross?)

4. Note to self: Look LEFT first when crossing the road. BUT cars actually give way to pedestrians here.

5. Tree rats and tree mice give definition to "scampering".

All for now,

RS

I hate to admit it, and my Aussie brethren, it is sadly true.

I have partaken of a few of Canada's brews:
Creemore's
Alexander Keith's
Moosehead
Steam Whistle

All are well and truly above the aussie standards.

I dont normally drink beer because I get a headache after about half a stubbie -- not a hangover, but something else. Here, no probs, no headache, no hangover.

Gooo Canada!

Another interesting happening.

My wife had traveled ahead of me by about 2 weeks with our young baby. She is still nursing, and has been using reusable breast pads between feeds to stop embarassing leakage stains on her shirts.

The in-law's dog had taken a liking to breast milk and ate about 10 cloth pads before anyone noticed. A trip to the vet confirmed what had happened, dog went under the knife and is recovering well.

My mom in law came home with a 1 and 1/2 lb bag of cloth recovered from the dog.

Hey dude - what time we meeting Friday? I took the day off, so afternoon is fine if you'd prefer. Did you get my PM about the Slye Fox? If you would rather go east, there's a place in Toronto's west end, at QEW and Kipling, called Hollywoods. Beers aren't as great, but the wings are.


Cheers.

Ken

DEAR GOD MAN!!!! JUST DON'T STICK THE SAUCE UP YOUR NOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
