What to Hate

As the "1000 Things We Like" project winds up, I have been planning a silly little "10 Things I Hate" post, mainly about grammatical errors, bad behaviour on TTC and at potlucks, etc. It was going to be a pretty funny post, but now it seems in poor taste, since the death of John O'Keefe by a stray bullet last Friday night. That's such a weird sentence for a Torontonian that I can only really process it by thinking of it like a meteor strike or a tsumami--totally random and unpreventable. But it's not, because apparently people sometimes have guns in their pockets as they stroll around Yonge and Bloor, which is not something I knew before, and is certainly not unpreventable.

So that's what I hate. I'll bitch about comma splices some other time.

Aah your new facebook photo is muy adorable. I'm thinking book jacket !!! Did you hear Russell Smith is also publishing a book (a dirty, dirty book if his column in this AM's Globe is to be believed) at biblioasis? You are among giants.

Ooh, neato! I didn't know that, and I am a non-subscriber, so I can't see the article. Details?
