A little something to remember...

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day that says,
"I will try again tomorrow."

torontonians

i don't even know if that's a word, but i've decided the general pedestrian populous of toronto are generally rude. at least in nyc, people bustle around, but they generally have an idea of spatial awareness. not people in toronto. these people will barrel toward you in a game of pedestrian chicken even if you're pinned against a wall with no where to go....they'd rather run into you than step over a foot...excuse me...a meter...or is that metre....i don't know...or two. ugh....get me back to new york.

*i might be lumping all people from toronto into the same group, but just know that i work with a bunch of wonderful people from toronto. the people i'm referring to are the ones who will mow you down after making eye contact, or the ones who will walk out in front of you without looking to see if someone is coming, or will just stop in the middle of the sidewalk. plus...i'm merely making an observation from the time i've been here. if you're from toronto and not guilty of pedestrian chicken, take no offense....i'm not irritated by you. :-)

We're not all that bad.

Then again, it's the holiday season, so we're usually in a mad rush against time (and other rude shoppers).

That's funny, dude, I've been to Toronto 14 times in the last nine years, and have always found them almost universally polite and friendly.

Course, I was usually there i April or October, not the Christmas/snowstorm/holiday/stress season, so maybe that's why they're that way now.

Have a fun time anyway.

HUGS...
