Notes from the Suburbs

For the first time in my life, I am living in a true suburb and in a new house. I have spent the past week completing a move to one of Toronto's suburbs and I offer the following preliminary observations:

  • There is a Boston Pizza for every 100 residents
  • There is no Starbucks
  • There is a farm across the street
  • Globe and Mail delivery extends to Europe, but not Markham
  • Any water use unleashes a Niagara-like torrent along the length of your living room ceiling

Have to like all the free parking though.

Are you going to by an SUV, now that you are a suburbanite?

How about the plethora of road hockey games?

David said...

I'm thinking either a pick-up truck or a Buick. Whatever carries the most fishing equipment.

Oddly, no road hockey games.

Hey Dave,

Was just checking my stats and found you as a referrer - congrats on the move. Are you permanently installed?

Go with the truck, and good job in picking a place close to the pizza parlor.

Brad - we're here as long as the CFO says we're here. With easy access to fishing and big box retail, I could stay here for an eternity.
