Greetings, New Neighbourhood

Seriously, who even knew that people celebrated Labour Day?

I mean, I know about the classic kind of celebration as in, "Hey Sunday's like a Friday now--let's get trashed and cause a ruckus!"

But I had no clue that Labour Day would result in a 3 hour long, "Whooo, we're workers!" parade, complete with tin pan drums, marching bands, and continuous loud music.

I also had no clue that this would happen right in front of my house, in the morning, while I was trying to sleep. I guess it's just a good thing that I didn't classically celebrate Labour Day last night.


  1. Don't forget the bagpipes and jetplanes.

  2. haha, I'm guessing you were also woken up by the mega parade this morning?

    Is your apartment at eye level with the streetcars? That would be freaky.

    hahaha at least you don't have a window looking directly on to Queen St.

    It was quite a shocker in first year when I woke up to that. lol

    And I think there might be one more parade as well..
    I just don't remember what day it is.. it's like some sort of union parade.

  5. Yah, the Labour Day Parade *is* the union parade.

    Dumb workers. Give them a day off and they just go have a parade celebrating the fact that they're not working.

    How about going to the lake??

  7. Damn Marxist commies! Every last one of them!
