See this? It's the harbour in Victoria BC. Note the blue sky? The sun? The general calmness? Don't you wish you were there? Well, I've just returned from 5 glorious days there. Days filled with long drives, good wine, museums and a bit of romance.
Last night I returned home to frigid Toronto to discover an apartment with no heat, burst rad pipes and black water all over the carpets. It was a balmy 53 degrees in my bedroom last night. That's with a space heater running!
It's not all gloom and doom. Our possessions are all fine and I've a wonderful landlord who is on the case. There are huge holes in my drywall but now the heat is partially restored. Still...Damn. Damn.
