Hometown: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
I'm bit of a nerd/geek in the process of planning a long awaited trip to Japan. Winning the lottery would surely expedite this process.
In the past several months I've been to California and Florida, but as of yet I have not blogged the travel details because I am lazy. So lazy in fact, I'm not going to finish writing this profile... ;)
Occasionally a sense of humour is required when reading/viewing/watching anything I publish here. You are warned.

A few pictures of Toronto's Eaton Center. Visitor information can be found here: Toronto Eaton Center Tourist Information Whenever I head downtown, I often stop at the Eaton Center. This indoor shopping mall spans the length between Dundas and Queen subway stations. The Queen exit also connects to The Bay (department store). The floors on the basement level offer less expensive merchandise than those on the premium 3rd floor. There are plenty of fast food establishments for a quick bite.

I'm not one to really pursue a getaway involving a Casino. However, when I found out Drew Carey's Improv All Stars were coming to Casino Rama, I made the trip. I'd never been before and due to the fact the show was late, I decided to stay overnight. I booked a room in their onsite hotel. It was pricey at almost $250.00 CAD a night, but hey, it was a Birthday present to myself. The journey began with a bus ride from my apartment to the subway. From there I went to Dundas station. After departing the subway, I hiked a few short blocks to the Toronto bus terminal. It only cost $10.00 for a two hour ride to Rama, Ontario. The ride was smooth, but because it was in the heat of summer, there was ... read more
