Some Clarification.

I am tentatively attached to the internet. AT HOME!!!

Re: two posts ago.
Jamie Oliver; on the Husband List. Jian Ghomeshi; still off. Stephen Colbert; I'm thinking about it. (That's Colbert the actor, not Colbert the character.) (Just saving myself from constantly making that distinction might be enough reason to keep him off.)

Re: last post.
I went to the Toronto Remembrance Day Ceremony. My housemate, C, went with me, which made me happy because I prefer to weep silently in public next to someone I know as opposed to weeping silently in public by myself.

Ok, back to life.
I have been less busy, really, than I have been in the first 10 weeks of my Torontoness.

On November 13th, we started a new semester, so I got rid of mt Bad Seed, my Lounger, my Deer-In-The-Headlights, and my Live-Action Comic Book Guy. I now have the Cool Geek, the Mature Go-Getter, and the Annoying Twins (not actual twins).

I'm teaching a World Relgions class, which is giving me wowzers in the trousers. I love it so much. There's some prep involved, but for the most part, I can just riff. We have gone through a unit of Aboriginal Spirituality, and then the Early Religions Unit, which consited of Zoroastrianism, Jainism, Confucianism, Taoism, and Shinto.

Next weekend my sister is visiting, which will be a nice appetizer to my trip home for winter break. I've booked a flight for the 22nd of December. Holy crapper, I can't wait. I get to see the fam and my girlies again, and I'll fill my face with my mother's cooking.

It's gotten very cold in Toronto. It was snowing on Friday morning when I left for work. All the leaves are down, and I enjoy kicking them as I walk down the sidewalk, even though I'm sure all the whimsy will buy me a syringe in the foot.

I rather like my neighbourhood. It's bookended with sketchvilles, but my stretch of street is quite nice. Apparently there were at least druggies, if not drug dealers, in the house before us, so I'd like to think I'm contributing to gentrification* of the area.
