T Dot

Down in Toronto. From the air, the city looks a bit like Oslo today: from the air, in winter, Oslo is a vast manic sketch done in faded black Indian ink on clean white paper. On the ground, there seems to be a lot of construction. My hotel room view, in fact, is of construction: yellow gating, plastic-wrapped columns, treated wooden boards gathering snow. A Korean couple in parkas peering up at the great black and white crane that seems to be turning around a lot without actually doing anything. Pointing up at it and laughing. Are there crane joyriders who just climb in and take them for a spin?

Now I need to catch up with the last nine hours of the world, and write a couple of columns.

  1. Wow…I frakkin’ LOVE Toronto.

    Ok. Hi, my name’s Eric and I visited Toronto once in 2001 and I fell in love with that city. I’m from Boston, MA USA and it’s as if NYC & Beantown successfully mated. I loved the Subway, I’ve never owned a car…I got a wickid decent subway system and I like how you can just get around Downtown easily Toronto. Wayne Gretzky’s place had the BEST HAMBURGER. No lie. And all the hot dog vendors…amen & hallelujah. I love Toronto. If only I coulda gone to a Leafs game…but I did go to two Blue jays games. And dinner in the CN Tower…you can see Buffalo from there. It’s like flying. And it rotates.

    It’s Cold. Stay In. Plenty of places to Pub in Toronto. Gawd love you and all your pink parts too… Canadian Girls. Beer…Gawd Exists…but iDigress…

  2. The exact same parts that are under construction now have been under construction for years and years with what seems like no progress. I’m starting to suspect that it’s a front for some horrible big budget hockey-themed porn event.

  3. @rev sully: I was just there in January, and was advised to avoid Wayne Gretzky’s like the plague, along with pretty much anything within 5 blocks of the CN Tower. Made getting dinner an adventure!
