January 19, 2008: Nice day in Toronto…

  Had a great day in Toronto.  Went to see the new movie "Cloverfield" – I won’t spoil the movie for anyone.  The monster wasn’t a rat though!!!!  The theater was packed out.  It was sold out last night.  Looked like it was sold out today as well.  Fun show and I would give it a thumbs up.

  Had lunch with Andrew and David.  Andrew played with the "One Laptop Per Child" computer.  He will probably have it deprogrammed before the end of the night.  lol  I think David wants to work on a microscope for the thing.  There seems to be production cost problems and the company is trying to figure out how to make it cheaper.

  Had a great dinner with Shawn.  Nice little Thai restaurant down the street from his apartment.  Great food.  Will have to go back there when I return to the city.  We watched "Click" after we finished eating.  I have not seen that movie before.  I think it came out last year?  Anyway, it was a good movie.  🙂

  Looks like a snowy week ahead.  I may try to find some lake effect snow bands.  Probably would have to drive an hour north – give or take.

  COLD back home.  Temperatures are in the 12-16 degree range at 10 p.m.  Here in Toronto temperatures are around 8 degrees above.  BRRRRR 🙂  Here are the 10 p.m. Toronto conditions!

January 19, 2008: Good Morning SNOW IN THE FORECAST!

  We had a nice time yesterday visiting with Doug.  It was a short visit though.  Hopefully we can get together for a longer stay in the coming weeks.  It looks like I won’t be returning home until the last week of February.  A bit longer than I had originally planned.  All good though.  This means that it will be almost MARCH once I get back in Paducah/Mayfield/Metropolis.   SPRING! 

  It looks like it is going to be a cold day today.  Temperatures are falling through the 20s.  We will be in the single digits and teens tonight across the Toronto area.  BRRRR 

  Today we are meeting up with our buddy Andrew.  Going to eat lunch and then off to see the new movie CLOVERFIELD.  We want to know what the monster is.  I have not peaked online…so no spoilers.  I think it is a giant rat.  Joey thinks it is a dinosaur of some kind.  Who knows!  Looking forward to seeing the movie and having lunch with David and Andrew.
