Paradise City

I’m remembering why I loved Kingston so completely. It’s small and charming and beautiful and everything or anyone you could ever need is a five minute walk away.

I feel like the best possible version of myself when I am here.

I'm really enjoying my internship so far. The people at the Whig are friendly and funny and are actually interested in who I am and what I want to write for them. It was ridiculous how many times people checked in on me throughout the day to make sure I was doing okay. I would never have experienced anything close to this in Toronto or Montreal.

Some Kingston highlights:

  • A kick-ass Hidden Cameras/Dandi Wind show at Elixir
  • Frequenting my beloved Toucan three times in as many days
  • The happy consumption of much grease from a variety of eateries, including Morrison’s
  • Discovering a sooper secret rehearsal of my most favourite Kingston-based band, The Orange Alabaster Mushroom (fronted by the amazing Mr. Greg Watson) at the Scherzo. I sat in on it for a little while and pretended the show was just for me. Since I know Grog will read this: thanks very much for “Lucy Leave”.
  • A late night sex toy reconnaissance mission with Jenny
  • Randomly running into many friends, both new and old

Lindsay will be here soon. We're going to party like it’s 2003.

(Now playing: “Don’t Lead Me On”, The Smoke. And holy smokes!)

For some reason, I can't respond to your comment on my blog, so I'll just leave a comment on yours: I regret to say that Beulah played their show last August.

You saw the Hidden Cameras, are frequenting the Toucan, and mentioned sex toys.

One giant HARRUMPH.

Wow, you're all about Harrumphs lately.

Holy shit! Over 10 000 hits! When did THAT happen?
