April 25th - Discuss amongst yourselves

What is the most blatant disregard for the five-second rule you’ve ever witnessed or been responsible for?

An ex girlfriend of mine and I were at Tim Horton's (when we were together). I had gone to the bathroom while she brought our food back to the table. I was gone for a couple of minutes and nicely washed up for lunch and everything.

When I got back, she was kind of smirking. I ate my lunch, and then moved on to my muffin. A family of four was sitting next to us, and everytime I took a bite of my muffin, they would all giggle.

Turns out (I found out later) that she had dropepd the muffin on the floor, and it didn't just fall and stop. It rolled around a bit.

So she wiped it off with a napkin and put it on my plate. But it was definitely on the floor for more than 5 seconds, as she apparently was deliberating what she should do, with the family looking on.

I saw someone use the five-second rule with pudding once. Gross.

I have friends that have a ten minute rule in their house.

Drunk, lying down in front of a bus full of high school athletes on the road in front of Halifax's cheesiest bar I ate pizza I either dropped or found in the gutter.

We sleep in a little, then leave our bags with the bell desk and check out. Hauling ass to Cravings (the buffet at Mirage), we get there two minutes after the lunch prices come into play, but the cashier is a sweetheart and gives us breakfast prices anyways. There’s mediocre sushi, very good Chinese, and decent Italian, plus breakfast items which we avoid like the plague. After this, we head through Harrah’s and catch the monorail heading South. Having rocked the entire North end of the strip the day before, this last day is our chance to show the South end a good time, and not call it in the morning.

Popping into MGM, we have a second crack at Studio City. This time, it’s a preview for an animated show called Creature Comforts. Basic premise: the producers have gone out and interviewed everyday peeps on topics like Keeping Secrets, Health, Sexuality, etc. While the audio remains intact, in place of the actual speakers are claymation sequences featuring animals as the speakers. …

Sarah's List -- 101 things to do in Ottawa and area (in 1001)

Sarah here...I'm once again hijacking Dave's blog, this time to publish a list of my own.

The backstory: I have been feeling like an underachiever for not having my own 1001 list, goal-oriented nerd that I am. When I realized that I would likely be doing most of Dave's tasks along with him, I changed my mind. I decided to put a slight twist on the 101 in 1001 concept; this list will certainly force us to discover our new home town.

I'm posting this here for two reasons:
a) because I have no website of my own, yet want to feel a bit of pressure to finish these tasks.
b) Dave will be involved in all of them, so it's only fair!

So...by March 15, 2008, I (well, we) aim to do the following:

41 things to do in Ottawa and area (in 113)
UPDATED: November 25, 2007

1. Visit the Canada and the World Pavillion [done 25/06/05 -- good thing, too, as it's closing in October 2005]
2. Visit the Diefenbunker [done 22/10/05 -- and it was AWESOME. Blaine (and JWo) will be our next targets…

Rainy day discount? It’s Vancouver! Why don’t they just call it a sunshine tax?

On Thursday, we continued the lazy late-afternoon starts that have become our habit. It was rainy (in Vancouver? Crazy talk, I know,) so we opted for something indoorsy: the Museum of Anthropology at UBC. It’s a beautiful structure, and just so happened to be featured in the ‘Ten Hot-Shit Architectural Structures’ article we read in our Air Canada magazine on the way over. Had I a brain, I would have brought the USB cord to my camera and saved myself from stupid, time-consuming description—but then I remembered that there’s this crazy thing called the internet, and I don’t have to do nothin’! Photos of the museum can be found here, here, and here (warning for you poor bastards on dial up: this last one’s a big-un). Highlights included a live carving display by artist-in-residence Lyle Wilson, the visible storage (rather than mothballing most of the collection, the museum keeps things open to the public and students through a system of drawers and glass cabinetry), and The Raven…
