Pass GO. Collect deals.

I’m on a free train ride to Toronto today, and by free. I mean $50 in Uber fees to get to the train station and back. The train ride from Niagara to Toronto is free though. There is a useless transit app trying to get my attention by offering this ticket in exchange for downloading the program.

I’ve already uninstalled it because Google Maps does everything much better, although I have not figured out how to inform Google that Greyhound discontinued service in Ontario. No biggie.

I just noticed I’m sitting on the left side of the train and I don’t think I ever have before. Maybe I just haven’t noticed. I always spend my train time with my face looking at my phone writing boring blog posts like this.

It’s a gorgeous weather day in June. On my way to the train, I passed by the Niagara Ribfest and remembered the great times from years gone by when I had a Saturday adventure partner to attend all those events. It’s been three years since I have had a cob of corn. Mmmmm

Sadly it will be closed before I return, bit I’m on the mailing list for next year.

I also missed the Niagara Falls ComicCon. I’m sad about that. It’s been 3 years for that too and the NF con is my favourite of all the area conventions. It’s just the right size.

I probably could have arranged it but I was in a failure funk from the bad May.

I’m feeling much better now that my financial woes were resolved. I put out a plea for help and amazingly recieved help from a few unlikely Facebook acquaintances from high school. Awesome.

Today I’m being a bad boy and I’m off to the city to spend the surplus donation money on luxuries rather than savings or essentials. I know it’s a mistake but I also know who I am, and money never stays a week in my bank account anyway so at least I’m buying things I would otherwise not afford.

I considered paying for new glasses or an escort and other non essential goods. I’m getting our washing machine working again, helping a client with some work and spending the rest on vices.

I’ll have enough left to cover bills and burgers. Then I’ll be back to normal poverty levels.
