Now that I’ve choosen to maroon my working life across town, I walk to work every morning. While my walk isn’t anywhere as near ambitious as my brother Steve’s — he walks from St. Joseph down to CBC Montreal every morning, which, I think, is about 17 miles — it’s still an interesting change.
This morning was full of exciting morning walk events.
First, I was stopped on the street by Mandy, from HelloDita.com. She’s been on my blogroll for a while, but I didn’t have a face to put to the name. We had a brief chat on the way to Timothy’s, and then jumped back underneath our digital covers.
Inside Timothy’s, I spotted my arch nemesis Leo Broderick engaged in leftist plotting over in the corner. I managed to avoid eye contact.
And finally, the curiousity getting the best of me, I phoned my sources inside the Hardware Building and secured the knowledge that the secret new development now shrouded in plywood on Kent Street is, in fact, soon to be some sort of pub, apparently starting with the word “St.”. Leaving aside that what the world needs is a good Croatian pub, not another one that starts with “St.” (although who knows, maybe it’s St. Vlaho’s pub!), this will be a welcome addition to the downtown eatery community.
