My Mule Friend

On an adventure I met a new friend,
I walked down a street just past a bend.
He looked at me and gave me a wink,
My mule friend is kind of cute I think.
I was lost, in this quest
He helped me home, he did his best.
He told me left, don't go right,
He told me this, and he didn't bite.

I Am A Nerd

So my flight went well and I was lucky enough to befriend my seat mate. More often for me flights are filled with awkward silence. During our long flight my seat mate and me decided that we would share our magazines in order to keep ourselves filled with reading joy. My seat mate had many of the popular magazines with gossip about celebrities and information that cool people in the know would be interested in. I had a copy of Discover magazine with an article about "talking to bacteria" and a copy of the Walrus with an interesting article about Trudeau. I am a nerd.

Small Things I found at the Airport

While waiting several hours for a delayed flight (see post bellow) I came across a little display all about the great outdoors in Canada. Most of the displays where miniature dioramas of equipment and things people use to explore the great outdoors.
The thing is each display shows the equipment but no people.
So it looks like some kind of horrible tragedy has taken place and all of the people have gone missing.


Airport Delay

So you find yourself stuck in an airport for 3 hours longer than you expected. You could go off an buy an overpriced magazine, or you could explore all the fine sites available in the departures waiting area.
Examining the latest selection of fragrances available in bottles that are sure to make even Snoop Dogg say "that's a little too much" is a wonderful chance to think about Christmas gifts for mom and dad.
You can always pick up some overpriced "British candy".
While you're at it, why not pick up some overpriced North American Candy too.
An airport waiting area is a great place to admire art, such as this piece which demonstrates the fine art of blocking the way of people carrying large amounts of luggage with little to no sleep.
These fun little sculptures are designed for kids to play on. Can't you imagine all of the fun a little tike might have pretending that he or she is being attacked by giant scary metal extrusions.
If all of this is too overwhelming you can always seek comfort from the large moose dressed as a Mountie.

Signs I Like

I never understood the appeal of wearing scrubs in your everyday life. I understand this sign selling scrubs even less.

Cheese, it's been a little while.

I haven't updated the "How to say Cheese" map in such a long time you'd think I had completely forgotten about it.
Not only did I kind of forget about it but... well really that's all I have to say. But low and behold I've come back and posted two new languages.

I've seen many strange things in my life...

I've seen a man pretend he was an intern at a hospital and take his clothes off. I've eaten a whole school of baby sardines, but truly this is the strangest sight I've seen in a while. See if you can guess what it is.
