There’s nothing on earth like a…

 …genuine, bona-fide, electrified, six-car monorail.  What’d I say?

Monorail!  It’s been a while since I’ve flown, apparently.  Why didn’t anybody tell me Pearson has a monorail?


I’m in Fredericton today for the start of a week-long visit home.  Being the good uncle that I am, I bought my baby niece a present at the airport: a pink “Maple Leafs Baby” t-shirt.  I’m not even really a hockey fan, but because my little brother is a Habs fan, that was too good to pass up.


We made a short recon to the Fredericton market this morning–I’ll make another trip next weekend, so today was all about the donair.  I’ve been jones’ing a proper donair for, well, 9 months, since the last time I was in Fredericton.  I wonder if I could freeze a crateful to take home with me?

Friday was a complete recovery day–no workouts at all.  I was feeling quite tired, and since I was busy getting ready to leave, didn’t have much time anyhow.
