Anti motorcycle city 6

The City of Toronto hates motorcycles. It is such a hassle to have a motorcycle downtown and use it as a method of transportation. The bylaw officers are complete pricks when it comes to parking your motorcycle. Motorcycles are better than cars for the environment, they take up much less space than cars, and getting ...

When is it really the ‘right time’? 10

In our short time together, I have learned a lot from you. As I sit here at work, I try to focus, but my mind wanders and ponders all of the ‘what ifs’. What if we had met at different stages in our lives? I also ponder the ‘what wills’, and I wonder what the ...

Environment-friendly apartment 2

When I was showering this morning and no warm water was coming out of the tap, at first I couldn’t help but have feelings of rage towards my apartment building. The water was so extremely cold that I couldn’t even get in the shower. Even placing my foot under the water felt as cold as ...

Toilet memo 1

I’ve had memos placed on my desk; I’ve had memos sent in the mail. I’ve even seen a local pizza parlour called “Pizza Memo”. But today was the first time I’ve ever seen a toilet memo at work. I’m not talking about those advertising posters they place above the urinals to keep us entertained while ...

Thrill of the year

Today I had an amazing thrill; the best thrill I’ve experienced so far this year. I was at a family event in Fergus and my cousin Joel let me take his 2000 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycle out for a rip. I’ve never ridden a crotch rocket/sport bike before so I was very excited to try it ...

First training session 3

I completed my first triathlon training session today in 30 degree+ temperatures. Although I didn’t do any swimming, I managed to bicycle 55KMs, then I popped my rear tire, so I had to walk my bike the last 3KMs or so. After that I ran 10K. It was one of the hardest runs I’ve ever ...

Understanding the terrorists

Having the ability to defeat the terrorists requires a solid understanding about why terrorists are doing what they’re doing. Modern history can explain a lot about the terrorist mindset and you can even understand the reasons for their hate and resentment toward others. Often times the “blow them out of the water” mentality only worsens ...

Collingwood Triathlon 3

I just registered for the Collingwood Triathlon on Saturday, August 6th, 2005 in Collingwood Ontario. The race I entered entails a 800 Meter swim, 32KM bike ride, and an 8KM run. I’m still a triathlon virgin, but very excited, anxious and nervous about trying it. If I enjoy it, I might perhaps enter an Olympic ...
