Get your Streetside Tan on!

Get your Streetside Tan on!, originally uploaded by NiteMayr.

Hola London, just outside the King’s Diner you can get a wicked tan! Just ask this guy. If he is there later on I’ll ask him who he is and if I can interview him.

Hey, if you have the time and the impetus, you should do what you want if it isn’t hurting anyone.

My co-worker thought this guy might be homeless, but a close inspection reveals a PDA in his chair there and the chair itself seems a bit extraneous for a homeless guy to need for a nice suntan.

Maybe tomorrow we’ll stop and ask him a few questions if he is still out there.

A Nice plate of Fish and Chips

Yes! A great lunch that wasn’t from “King’s”

Went to “Walker’s Fish and Chips” for lunch, had the Halibut and Chips.

The Fish was great, tasty and flavorful. The batter wasn’t all the taste, the fish was meaty and strong, a pleasure to eat. The Chips were also great, obviously real cut potato, soaked overnight to make sure that they are not too starchy. Great!

I didn’t care for the coleslaw, but I’m not a fan of the slaw anyway.

PLUS Beer on tap (not GOOD beer, but on TAP) and other beer selections on hand.

I can’t recommend Walker’s more.

Investigate 911!!! Yah Boo!

Investigte 911!!! Yah Boo!, originally uploaded by NiteMayr.

Of all the pointless crap, this is Canada you shower of assholes. No one in Canada needs to investigate anything in New York. Okay? The guys in the USA aren’t going to start doing what you want when you deface buildings in downtown London, Ontario, Canada!

(Yes I know that I’m giving publicity to it, but bear with me)

Environmentalists and Capitalists are Crazy

“There won’t be a ban,” Coun. Judy Bryant, the planning committee chair, said in response to leaflets urging Tim Hortons customers to fight against “banning drive-throughs in London.”

“It seems misleading to me. There is nothing in the recommendation that would indicate the city is planning on banning drive-throughs.”

But the group representing several fast-food restaurants dismissed that criticism, and attacked members of the committee who walked away from a unexpectedly large crowd of 200 that breached the council chamber’s fire code.

The London Free Press

It is easy for these large chain restaurants to raise issues against the ban, but when it comes right down to it, it does affect the health of everyone! Just take the time out to watch, on a cool day, the vehicles idling 24/7, for the sake of a coffee/doughnut or some fast food!

It makes me wonder if perhaps a total ban on cars might be the goal here “we got by fine on horses and carts, why not go back to that?

The best Letter on the Matter, almost the best Satire on the debate:

How about the traffic lights???? I frequent London DT’s on regular basis, and my experience is that daily I sit at traffic lights a lot longer than to get my coffee. The City, as a suggesion should put some effort at getting the ridiculously long lights such as, Highbury rd. to turn left on to Wilton Grove, that takes several minutes during the day and at least 10 min in the middle of the night; not only a waste of time but also a safety issue at night; also after the Malls in the city close, there is no traffic right, why do we still have to stop at red lights?…. City Hall Staff why don’t you take care of items that will improve traffic in London, instead of trying to make it worse…. Thanks for this oportunity.

It always seems that whenever something is convenient, someone exploits it and someone wants it gone in the name of health or the environment (or terrorism or to fight pedophiles or the myriad other reasons).  The busybody nannies show up along with the “fuck the earth let’s make money” types in tow.  I think they all arrive in the same indignant-bus.  Each side takes up arms and marks their line in the sand and starts the mantra “The other side hates money/the earth/health” and they go at it.  Each side takes no real losses but hope to make gains in the future.  When the smoking ban came down I heard gloom and doom from the Bar Owners, but the bars seem to be just as full as they always were.  It seems that you don’t need a smoke to have a beer after all.  The smokers still smoke and recruit new smokers; so the people who needed to be “saved” are still at risk, but at least non-smokers don’t have to sit in the smoke anymore, right?

(BTW Hippies who smoke, suck.)

The same goes for bans on new Drive-Throughs.  The developers will eventually see that they can make more money from renting out huge lots of land as Parking (because the coffee addicts HAVE to get coffee in the AM) and they can snare more people into eating at their place because the customers have to see and smell the stuff when they walk in.  It’s a win for the nannies, because they get to say they put a stop to people idling in the drive through, forgetting that the worst of us will leave their car idling in the parking lot anyway.

In the end, both sides get their win and move on to some other cause.

I wish the abortion protesters would go away though.

Fries and a Reuben – Going Negative

Fries and a Reuben, originally uploaded by NiteMayr.

When a political campaign takes to crapping all over the opposing camp, it’s termed “Going Negative” and when it is egregious and possibly slanderous, it’s “Ratfucking”

I’m not about to ratfuck the “Family Restaurant” on Wellington in London, but that is only because I might be forced to eat there again as part of the rodent coitus.

Let me start with the price, 8 bucks for frozen fries and a sandwich. Are you kidding me!?!?

The sandwich might cost about 3 bucks in materials if the meat and cheese are fancy. However, the cheese was “cheese food” – style swiss and the bread was barely rye. The meat was untenable and together with the lack of thousand island dressing made the whole sandwich part of the meal lackluster at best. I also burned my mouth due to the MOLTEN LAVA heat of the meat.

By the time I got to the frozen food product fries I wasn’t really able to enjoy them, due to my injured mouth and ended up just giving up on eating them. Which, if you know me is almost impossible for me to do.

For 8 bucks I expect to enjoy my food.

For 5 I can get a nice salad and the best Chicken Salad sandwich on earth at the King’s Cafe downtown london (near Galleria, next to the Brass Door). I recommend you avoid the “Family Restaurant” on Wellington, south of Grey Street North of Grand Avenue.

And that is Going Negative.
