    For the second year in a row, the gas company is convinced there is a problem with our gas meter. Apparently it has only been reading the bare minimum amount needed to keep the furnace's pilot light lit. Also for the second year in a row, they are sending somebody to replace it. It's working perfectly fine, of course, and we've told them why the readings are so low. We don't use the furnace. I guess that's not an answer they can live with, though.

    I don't like his music in general, so there's at least one that agrees with you.

    From what I've heard from friends and family, it isn't uncommon. Or at least it wasn't 5-10 years ago at 5 or 6 different Colleges/Universities in the region.

    There's a group who protest abortion 24/7 outside my sister's workplace. They've never approached her, but they would regret it if they tried. Most days, even I regret talking to her.

    This Watford classes as Warwick Township, but it was separate when I was growing up so it will remain as such in my mind. It's also not too far from London, so another case of stolen (borrowed?) naming. I never went to College/Uni so I don't really know much about the setup, but that exam date surprises me. 7pm doesn't really, I've heard of that from cousins, but I've never heard of one on a Sunday. The merchandise doesn't surprise me at all, though. I've seen more than I ever cared to and I've never done more than drive by the place. I hear that a lot, actually. My high school had roughly half the number (it wasn't in the village).

    I was born in a small city (Sarnia, Ontario) but grew up in a village of 1600-1700 (Watford). I lived in that village for almost 19 years and would happily return if there were decent job opportunities. Don't get me wrong, Watford is pretty terrible in almost every way, but the smaller population is what I prefer.

    I had a longer post typed out about the rest of your plans, but my aunt's cat decided to ruin it by sprawling across the keyboard. The only really salvagable part was the moose thing (which, despite being a true story, wasn't particularly serious), so I posted it and went to find food before baseball started. Besides, that bear quip was the important part. I felt compelled to warn you of the true threat to mankind, the majestic moose of Canada. If we ever manage to recruit them into our military, this world shall be ours. Toronto is actually the only place on your list I've been. I've been there 4 times. There are definitely reasons to go, but if it wasn't for Blue Jays baseball I wouldn't have gone back the third and fourth times. I'm not a city person, though. Even London is way too big for my liking.

    If you're going north then you should worry more about the moose. I've witnessed a moose attacking a pickup. The truck was totaled and the moose walked away like it was nothing.

    As I said, I can understand how they can benefit both sides. They just don't allow me to show my positive self, like the in-person ones, and it shows. I am currently a lifetime 3-for-3 in-person and 0-for-3 on the phone.

    I don't know anybody who does it, but I always thought that was the idea. Unrelated, and I've probably said it before, but I'll say it again. Phone interviews are, in my opinion, the one of the worst supposedly good things ever. Don't get me wrong, I understand how they can be beneficial to both sides. I just think that, for me, they do nothing but portray me as an overly cynical person. Anybody who has spent actual time with me knows I'm not, but I can't really express my true self via a phone conversation. Apparently I, through sighs and the like, showcase all kinds of negativity on the phone that I am quite adept at either hiding or ignoring in any other instance. In case you haven't figured it out, yes I had a phone interview in the last hour. It was for a job I don't want (some general warehousing position), with a company I don't care about one way or the other (Coca-Cola), and lasted less than 4 minutes (3:43, to be precise). That might sound bad, but 4 minutes of my time, in person, has gotten me jobs in the past. Of course, I already know that, if I get this job, my time with the company will only end when they choose to end it.

    My sister does that at least once every couple of weeks. Speaking of my sister, her and I went to the US on monday. There was no real reason for it (although she was looking for a set of Iron Man wall lights), apart from needing to kill about 8 hours before baseball started. We ended up spending about $30 and had to submit to a vehicle search on the way back.

    I only learned about it because a nearby pizza place does 2 slices and a drink for $3.81 + tax and it comes out to $4 even. Somebody in line in front of me asked them about it and that was what they said.

    Only if you spend more than $4. If the meal is less than that then the provincial portion of the HST is removed. They call it HST but still apply it the same way as ever. They calculate both separate and then apply the GST followed by the PST. If the cost with the GST is $4 or less, they void the PST. Technically the PST/GST split doesn't exist anymore, but it still does in calculations. I am in Ontario, by the way. Also, Randox, I think that might be a Nova Scotia thing. It doesn't work like that in Ontario at present. I kind of hope it does in the future, though. Also, the corner store near me does that a lot, too.

    I know gas has all taxes included in its listed price here. I also know grocery items are not taxed, but I'm not sure what else is deemed essential. So at the very least, those 2 things are the same. Alcohol and tobacco might be as well, but I don't know for sure because I've never needed to. If a restaurant meal is less than $4 you don't pay provincial tax on it here. If you buy alcohol in a restaurant, you pay 13% provincial tax instead of the usual 8% (on top of the federal tax, of course). It really is more complicated than it needs to be.
