Random musings from my weekend in Ottawa


  • It’s friggin’ freezing out there!!! Remind me again why I choose to live in this part of the world?
  • Week before Christmas + SAQ strike = long lineups at the LCBO. On the plus side, LCBOs have great selections that include items like this… and they give you Air Miles. On the minus side, seems I’m supposed to be paying tax to the Quebec government for the booze I bought in Ontario. Yeah, right.
  • What logical explaination is there for the price of gas being 15 cents a litre lower in Ontario than in Quebec?
  • The map store is awesome. So is the game store. (I’m still accepting soybean donations).
  • Chocolate frogs and turtle cheesecake are my new addictions.
  • Coffee Coffee Coffee!!!

Glad you had fun in my town, Sari. Regarding the gas thing, its the provincial excise taxes that make most of the difference. The map store I can dig, the game store?

Gas is 15 cents a litre cheaper in Ontario because Quebec has the highest gasoline taxes in North America.

Yes, yes, I know all that… it was more of a rhetorical question. *Grumble grumble*.
