Montreal-isms

07.22.09

  • Bixi is apparently having a problem with too many bikes ending up downtown and not making it back to the Plateau. You’d think someone might have anticipated this issue when they introduced a public bicycle service in a city built on a hill, no?
  • Montreal has claimed the #1 spot on AskMen.com’s Top 10 list of Canadian riots… as well as the #2, #3, #5, #8 and #9 spots. Clearly, something to be proud of.
  • Apparently, Montreal’s festival season might be one festival short this year, thanks to idiots in the federal government.
  • T-shirt slogan of the week: “My drinking team has a hockey problem”.
  • I just got offered a hot pepper by a random guy in an elevator.

Goes to show random guys on elevators in Montreal are much more creative than random guys in Ottawa who offer you beer and invites to “a party somewhere on the nineth floor” on my elevator.

Then there are random guys on elevators in hotels in North York who ask you if you will share your food with them if the elevator were to break down.

Really? Like -hey, would you like some of my sandwich? Not now, but if the elevator breaks down and we re here for a while, then i ll give you some. Maybe.

I’m kind of upset at them canceling funding for the gay arts festival. Sounds like conservative prejudice to me.

Cathy, we need to start a “random guys on elevators” blog.

I was just thinking that – or random people in general: I once had a woman try to sell me a second hand pleather catsuit on the elevator.
