Well, looks like things are beginning to go into motion...as a follow up to a previous post, it looks like I'm starting to look hard at America as a place to live. So far on the list: Boston, ....uh...and not that many other ideas so far, actually. Looks like I'll be doing a tour pretty soon, trying to find somewhere that...

Sounds exciting! But not as exciting as finally landing in whatever US city you've chosen and thinking, 'Wow. I'm not calling Canada home any more.' Even if it's a temporary thing, it's exciting.

Boston's a good call. 'Nuff said.

Man...that was a good night.

Did you notice how similar the imagery was to say Numberg 1939. Not saying but I'm just saying. I was laughing my ass off at the bar. (huge history buff, like History Channel is number 1 on my TIVO)

Wish Prop 8 hadn't passed here in CA, but yeah.

It's hard not being maudlin sometimes. Maybe it's the environment; when the only thing that guides your day-to-day life is your own willpower, it can be a rough, winding road.

Take tonight for instance. Tonight was a great night for work...until I heard the silence creep in. Sitting there, slowly making itself felt, it just found me. So of course it asks...

May I suggest not starting over in Massachusetts. biggrin It is too expensive for not enough return.

noctua:

I second the 'San Francisco', but then I'm biased, being out here. wink

I know how inertia can be. It ties you down, and you get comfortable with what you know. I see it in a lot of people who seem miserable about their situation, but unlike you, haven't quite realized that a solution was available: getting up and trying somewhere new.

I was thinking about it, and I realize that in the last 15 years, I've only spent about 3 in Toronto. I was either in Waterloo, or somewhere out here in California. I've moved 9 times in the last 10 years, now that I think about it. Needless to say, settling down hasn't been a big part of my lifestyle. smile

Questions to ask: Are you comfortable enough with yourself to be alone for the first little while? It does take time to make friends, after all. To find new hangouts. To hit a groove with work and personal life. How do you handle change? If it sends you into a depressive bout, moving might not work out for you. I'm pretty adaptable, but even for me, moving to SF (which is very Toronto-like in its own way -- much more so than, say, Texas) had culture shock issues. But I moved passed them.

Of course, there's also all the small details of moving cross-country, or to another country. What do you do with all your shit? Is it legal to stay there? How much will it cost? How will I pay for stuff? Etc. Who knows... maybe the exercise of figuring it out will give you an answer: try something new, or find something new in Toronto.

WHAT I'VE BEEN WATCHING
The 2008 Election, you crazy Americans. It's just the most interesting thing right now. I've got my own thoughts on everything (well, as well as a million thoughts on CNN anchors...like, why does Lou Dobbs get a show?), but I'll try and keep 'em to myself. I'll...honestly...try.

WHAT'S ON MY LIST TO...

i learned in film class that movies encompassed or could encompass all the artistic disciplines, from writing to painting to music and so on.

whatever happened to George Miller?

redheadedleague:

I'm embarrassed for my country right now. As for why Lou Dobbs gets a show... what can I say? There are a lot of angry unemployed workers who like to point fingers, and Lou feeds into that. Ironically, I was watching an episode of Rome the other night, and the characters were complaining about how slaves were taking all the work away from upstanding plebians. History. Circular, and stuff.

Lines I Come Up With, But Are Too Chickenship To Use

I think I'm just gonna fill this in as they come to me. More as inspiration strikes!

Baby, you don't need me to tell you this...but you're hotter than a sack of lit briquettes down my pants.

Outrun The Sun
Unsung is playing in my car right now. I'm blasting across the highway at nitro+ speeds. I've heard that there's a theoretical limit that you can hit while travelling in sublight speeds where it feels as though you're floating. As you approach c, the speed of light, you lose mass and translate it directly into energy.

I'm...
