Someone else said that they live near here and yeah, the commute downtown takes no time at all. On my road bike, I am downtown in 15 minutes, 12 if I really jet. Fixed, about 20 minutes cuz I suck at the braking and instead go slow
what number are you on roncy? my place is on boustead ave off roncy, 2 blocks north of howard park.

my only complaint about our neighbourbooh is the lack of an LCBO! rumour has it that the building that currently houses the revue cinema will be converted into one. i like the cinema and all but a liqour store is something i can USE!

hahaha.. yeah, I am a total west-ender. I used to live on Sorauren @ Dundas, so I know your neighborhood too Jeremy! I liked it, but I like my new one better. I like being more central.

Hells yeah! i'm free saturday morning; if anyone knows of any pubs/cafes that are showing it i'd be on that life oprah on a baked ham. jet fuel usually has a big-screen set up for the festivities. any other suggestions?

isn't everyone already glued to their sets weekend mornings?! the 9am starts where pretty bad.. elimination round is 11am but they've got 2 games going on at once which means you can only watch one of em...

Hrm, I hadn't heard that rumour. I would love it if the theatre could stay but I have a feeling it will go. I thought that it was being turned into condos or lofts, which would suck, we have enough trendoids around as it is. Isn't there an LCBO at the Crossways? There used to be one in there but I haven't been to it in ages so it may be gone. The one at Brock and Queen is convenient for me and there is also a beer store there. They've been (unknowingly) servicing me since I was 17

I am at Pearson; Boustead is nice, I bet it is quiet up there.

Steal it man. I love my stolen cable, even though I rarely watch TV. It just makes me happy knowing that I stuck it to Ted Rogers in some insignificant way. It kind of went down like this:

Me-walk out of apartment to dispose of trash....notice that coax cable running into my apartment is not connected to 3 way splitter on outside wall. Connect coax =free cable for 6 mo.

Rogers: Disconnects cable, installs 'lock' fitting interupting my stolen signal, leaves me a friendly note offering free cable hook up if I subscribe today.

Me: Removes 'lock'. Takes into workshop, drills hole down center. Fabricates crude female and male coax connection for the signal wire and installs in center of 'lock'. Reinstalls 'lock'. Free cable for 2 years and counting (and I waived the cable hook up fee)

I had cable for free for the first three years I lived in my house, then Rogers discovered it. I HAD to get cable as X-files was finishing up and I couldn't miss it.

Thus the x-files era begins on the Toronto Fixed thread. It is my firm belief that it jumped the shark beginning season 7, season 6 kind of blew already but Triangle made up for it with x-cops.

Wow. Thanks for all the tips. So, if I stopped wearing black 10 years ago, does that mean I stay clear of the west side in my apartment hunt? I do indeed know the bada$$ blood gangsign where it spells out blood with your fingers. I'll teach it to whomever can tell me where these noisy streetcar spots are so I can avoid getting a place there.

Anyway, seriously guys, thanks for the apartment links and all that and you can all go back to your regularly scheduled program now.

BTW, Tour De France coverage on OLN starts saturday, sweeeeeeeeeeet!!!
I will part with a 58cm frame and fork only for a price I am not willing to divulge online...stop by and we can talk.
Oh yeah....Tour starts on Sat...time to dig out the shop ladder.
