I think the best life would be one that's lived off the grid. No bills, your name in no government databases. No real proof you're even who you say you are, aside from, you know, being who you say you are. I don't mean living in a mountain hut with solar power and drinking well water. I think nature's beautiful and all, but I don't have any desire to live in it. I need to live in a city. I need pay as you go cell phones in fake names, wireless access stolen or borrowed from coffee shops and people using old or no encryption on their home networks. Taking knife fighting classes on the weekend! Learning Cantonese and Hindi and how to pick locks. Getting all sorts of skills so that when your mind starts going, and you're a crazy raving bum, at least you're picking their pockets while raving in a foreign language at smug college kids on the street. At least you're always gonna be able to eat

It's nice to be out of February and into March. I begin to wake up this time of year.

Its amazing to wake up when the sun is already out. Just the thought of it is such a good feeling. There are a lot of senses and feelings that together provoke wonderful memories or inspiration. Like the smell after it rains. Beautiful. Like walking home on a friday afternoon on a gorgeous day when the birds are chirping and its warm enough not to wear a jacket. You keep hitting green lights. People are smiling. You stepped in gum but its still a perfect day....

Just wait until I write about how certain senses and feelings provoke bad days even when nothing has happened yet. You know what I mean. You wake up and it's raining and windy. You're already in a bad mood. And then you remember that your shoes have gum on the bottom. Blast!
There are a lot of scents and feelings that bring back memories. I'm noticing that these memories and feelings being brought up now are different because this is the first time I am experiencing season change in a different place. I love Toronto. It's time to make new memories.

PS, have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE when the fire alarm in my building goes off at 4 am?!!!!

Today's Entertainment News
  • Rumors swirled all day yesterday about Jesse James cheating on Sandra Bullock.
    He released a statement which we can conclude that... the rumors, sadly, were true :(
    "The vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded. Beyond that, I will not dignify these private matters with any further public comment. There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me. It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way. This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them. I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me."
Is Sandra Bullock’s failed relationship due to the “Oscar Curse”? This is the curse that leading actress’ get after winning the top honour at the Oscar Awards. Here’s a list of those that won “Best Actress” award at previous Oscars and have had their marriage end:

  1. You should get use to those fire alarms. They're not going away. Does Tiff still freak out and pace around when it goes off?
