were you up in osaka for the weekend? been entertaining a bunch of crazy osakans for the past month.
actually, i was up there a couple weekends ago checking out the international beer festival in umeda. after lotsa beers and some expensive hash, i ended up taking the train in the wrong direction when i went back to my friend's place...finally realized after ~5 stops and turned around. are the osakans friends or family?

guys.. even the LCBO is encouraging us to do this single-malt tasting with this new "whisky generation" marketing.

ps. I went into the Scrivener Square (Yonge St in Rosedale.. I'll never forget that after Eyefloater and I had no farking clue during that alleycat last Spring) LCBO for the first time since it was renovated (and that was years ago) this past weekend. Wow.

Is anyone else riding down to Bab's show at the Rogers Centre tonight.

Wondering if it is safe to lock up my city bike down there.

It's at the ACC, and as long as your city bike has that SRAM group on it, you can leave it unlocked.

I'll take the snow over this crap ANY day. I'm going to have to buy new booties if I can't find mine, I can't keep soaking my feet. Not looking forward to the ride in. Just came back from the grocery store, it's yucky.

speaking of which.. my nylon MEC ones have started to leak on one foot. I'm going to see if they'll give me new ones. It looks like it's leaking along the seam. I'm not sure why they would put a seam right down the front anyway, doesn't seem like very smart design. Common sense, people!

ps. a friend's latest "Monkey Mondays" posting is topic-appropriate: http://www.monkeymondays.com/
pps. Cavernmech: I met a guy named Todd last night.. he was in the group I went to Maiden with (friend of a friend). He lives in Calgary now but used to live here around 6 years ago and was messing then. Your name/shop came up somehow and we realized we both know you. No idea what his last name is.

didn't she call jean charet (sp) the prime minister of canada? that can be our next ride; we'll have tea and scones at the King Edward, go shopping at yorkdale then whoop it up to wind beneath my wings. great idea.

Yeah i'll take a little snow before this. minus 20 would even be better.

on the topic of booties, i've tried using mine over top of regular sneakers in toe clips. i know it's unconventional but it seems to work.

All of us locking up in the front with the doorman, slowly getting ready to **** himself as he realizes where we are going.... I'm thinkin' I want ones that close more over the bottom, I've packed a fair bit of snow and slush into the sides of the ones that strap across the bottom, just a little more crap getting between my shoe and the booties.

another reference to my monkey-painting friend.. I can't believe he found something this good (he obviously added the monkey captain):
