Techno-nails

My first nail wraps – Sephora By OPI's Chic Prints For Nails in Silver Skulls (the biggest ones have skulls but they're too wide for my thumbs, maybe for my toes?)...

GO Transit schedule fail.

It’s 6pm and I’m sitting at Union Station waiting for my train. It’s not the train I wanted but it’s the train I’m stuck with.

Glymm Box — June 2012

Work has been relatively quiet this past week, I’ve been able to get through about half of my built-up task list (it’s usually two pages’ worth), so when our mail room let me know there was a package for me I got excited: my first Glymm box arrived today, hooray!

Luxe Box shell game switcharoo. Not good.

Not good, Luxe Box.

I’ve been raving about Luxe Box for a while now. I got my first box in February as one of three (on a three-month subscription), and while there were some hiccups I decided the pluses outweighed the minuses and signed up for another three-month subscription…

You know what really bothers me?

I’m doing a bit of a slow purge (of stuff, people, I’m not sick), and came across something that has inspired this post...

Apocalypse, right here and now [updated]

So it’s raining. Like really raining. Not in a cats-and-dogs kind of way, just in a you’ll-need-an-umbrella kind of way. But the city is grinding to a halt. Why?

Union Station is flooded.

Yep, all the rain falling in the entire downtown core is, just due to the slant of the city, being funnelled right into our main transit hub. Commuters had to be CARRIED OUT for their own safety. The subway is halted throughout the core and apparently the streetcars aren’t running very well in the flooded rails either.

So if you live here in Toronto, and thought you might go out and have fun? Just stay home. Watch a movie. Read a book. Play games with your family. Organize your cupboards. Believe me, you won’t be missing anything.

...and it’s supposed to keep raining all weekend long. Keep dry, folks.

-------------

And it took over two hours to get home, using streetcar, subway and bus. Not fun. On the plus side, it hardly rained at all on Saturday and only for a bit on Sunday. So much for the predicted downpour!
