Froshies are great fun, just walk up to a big group of suitably intoxicated young woman and inquire as to how their first day as an adult is going.

This is the best week every year for me, its just like Dazed and Confused "I keep getting older but they stay the same age"

Beer bust at the moontower tonight

PS:Track day may be a problem as the racing season starts that weekend as well. Details to follow

That was actually a yesterday post and I didn't actually get there. I may be going by tonight though. Incidentally, if you're ever visiting eyefloater and, as I do, asking him the prices of various unusual and unmarked items sheerly for the pleasure of seeing him sweat, stop at Sushi Marche across the street. Extraordinary sushi. super props as they make their own pickled ginger (no industrial red dyes in that stuff) and they do NOT stuff your sushi special with crappy arkshell and clam toes like everyone else seems to do. They were almost insulted when I asked them if they did that... Very good sushi at a pretty reasonable price.

I want to know what love is - Foreigner
Feel like makin' love - Bad Company (he's gotta do the pelvic thrusts in time to the chorus riff)
Fire and Ice - Pat Benatar
Wave babies - Honeymoon suite <--- just 'cause we need some more Canadian content
Follow your heart: Triumph (I'll take extra cheese with that).
I Touch Myself - Divinyls <-- How could anyone forget this classic!!!
Is This Love - Whitesnake (although I've always envied David Coverdale's hair)
When I'm With You - Sheriff (What's up with Canadian bands and power ballads?)
No one like you - Scorpions ('cause we need a bit of continental content)

That's it off the top of my head.

Anyone want to get together for dinner and/or coffee tonight? Maybe out in the West end? I have to drop my car off to get new tires out in Etobicoke after work and I'll be riding back through the Bloor West Village / High Park / Parkdale areas. Plus my gf is out of town tonight, so I'm on my own for supper and cooking for one blows.

edit: sweep: I got an extra ticket for American Hardcore on Sep 13 @ 9:00pm. Let me know (asap) if you definitely aren't going to be able to make it and I'll find someone else.

http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/revi.../underweather/ <-- UTW bag review on FGG. Haven't read it yet, but it might be interesting to see how they rate the local offering.


Edit: Sigh. I hope to be put out to pasture with the rest of the geriatric hipsters some day (re: FGG).
