After that, five minutes later you find yourself huddled in the corner wearing the same clothes you've worn for the last 13 days, constantly pressing the F5 refresh button while lightly sobbing and drinking Sunny D out of an empty can of Vienna Sausages.

    EDIT: I think, uh, I may have projected there a little bit. Just ,uh,....enjoy the forum.
    No you're totally correct. I just have to set up the proper exit excuses if things go sour. I have to pretend that there will be no emotional investment.

    The proper way I suspect of an introvert to join this forum would be to lurk for 3 months and then carefully tread the waters using a fake alias. But the J in me says all this is just a distraction from real life so I shouldn't waste any time and just jump in making absurd posts in every direction by adopting a very E attitude.

    Yeah Toronto is a smelly place both culturally (aroma's of foods) and as being a pain for everyone else in Canada.

    I'm having this huge issue on deciding how to spend the rest of my life by adopting a new home. Having spent 8 months in Silicon Valley has told me I could do it. What remains to be answered is what kind of lifestyle I want to pursue and why I don't feel Toronto isn't worthy enough. /mumbles to self

    Oh is it a Canadian thing? Also how is that possible given all TV is made in Amurica? Perhaps its all the Canadian actors and writers?

    That's ok, I don't feel like Toronto is worthy enough, either. But it's been a decent pit-stop in my life so far. At least, it's doing it's job (rent, food, work...all the things a city should provide). Part of me just wants to settle near Peterborough on a sheep farm and to hell with the rest of whatever. Haha...that'll be the day.

    Nah, it's probably not a Canadian thing. You just called me on a bit of silliness I couldn't quite explain. Although, I have been watching an inordinate amount of Kids in the Hall and they use that "stranger" thing a lot in a few sketches. I know South Park makes fun of Canada in one show where they have all these Canadian calling people "pal" "buddy" "stranger" "guy." Who knows. I've never personally experienced it.

    Maybe that's what those folk up near Peterborough on the sheep farms say all the time.
