Thinking Chaos, Thinking Fences

Sarah Harmer's brilliant You Were Here was a constant companion in Ireland over the past couple of years. Thanks to Napster, Kazaa and its brethren, I've managed to discover some great songs by Harmer and her former band, Weeping Tile. I've been playing one song in particular: Good Fortune. It's a great, rockin' tune about (I think) getting lost while hiking near Lake Huron.

Here's an MP3 of the song. I don't normally do this, but I figure the now-defunct band would appreciate it if a few new converts bought their albums. I don't remember who said it, but I read an article about Sarah Harmer where she was described as the 'loveliest Ontario beauty since Margaret Atwood". Judge for yourself:

Edmontonian (but current Hong Kong resident) A Big White Guy brings us this revolting tale of crappy (hee, hee) hygiene in Hong Kong's public washrooms:

Compounding the issue is the stalls use the Asian-style squat toilet, rather than the Western-style commode. Some of the renovated facilities now have both types, but this particular restroom does not. And that's a huge problem. Especially when someone is suffering from a certain intestinal malady that results in what can best be described as a "splatter-poopy".

It's safe for work. Just not around lunchtime.

I applaud the North Vancouver Parks and Rec department for their creative signage. How cool is that? Not all bureaucrats are heartless, humourless zombies. Just most of them.

On a related grammatical issue: Did I capitalize that title correctly? I wasn't sure if it should be "a lot" or "A Lot", so I compromised.
