Appliqué on driveway in front of red rollup door shows a Road Runner–like mascot in a fire helmet driving on a road running through a four-leaf clover. Two of the leaves read YONGE ST. and GROSVENOR ST. Legend reads PUMPER 314 RUNNING THE STRIP SINCE 1871

There is, in fact, no “strip” between Yonge and Grosvenor to “run.” The two streets intersect. (And hats off to you if you are one of the few Torontonians who can pronounce “Grosvenor.”)

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
