I went to Safeway to buy Creamo (their shit Lucerne version) version and bacon (schneider's 375 g). When I got to the till, Christina told me the total was $5.25. I said, "Christina, you must have made an error in your calculations. It should be around $10 total" She said, "Hmm. You have air miles?" I said No. She replied, "Bacon is on sale. You save $5" I went back and bought one more for good measure.

There wasn't even a sale sign or even a price tag for that matter. I wonder if someone took it, hoping to hoard all the savings. Not a bad idea if not a bit curmudgeonly.

No, Lucerne, like Compliments, is Safeway's shitty in-house brand version of dairy products. Ever since Loblaw's or Sobeys took over, they have slowly replaced all good brands in the entire store with their own shitty versions. Can't even buy decent pesto anymore. Disturbing. Sometimes I walk an extra block and go to Whole Foods or No Frills.

Presidents choice makes some good products for Loblaws. You get 500g of their bacon for price of 375g Schneider’s or Maple Leaf and it’s just as good.

I believe President's Choice is only at SuperStore and not Safeway - at least out west (another reason for WEXIT?).

My town is blanketed in a thick gauze of smoke from the gender fires burning in Washington State. I have ceased all non-emergency exercise and have taken time off work to re-calibrate my senses.

In other news, I took my new gravel bike out for a spin and I suddenly understand why other people can bike for more than 2 hours at once. Man was my old bike ever worse.

I used to get my baked goods from a place on Baker St near wool which. The hipster grocery store downtown had stuff as well, good bread at least.

There are a few fancy dooughnut shops here, my fave being "léché desserts".
I like their coconut lime ones.

Winding your way down on Baker Street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well, another crazy day
You'll drink the night away
And forget about everything
This city desert makes you feel so cold
It's got so many people, but it's got no soul
And it's taken you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything
You used to think that it was so easy
You used to say that it was so easy
But you're trying, you're trying now
Another year and then you'd be happy
Just one more year and then you'd be happy
But you're crying, you're crying now
Way down the street there's a light in his place
He opens the door, he's got that look on his face
And he asks you where you've been
You tell him who you've seen
And you talk about anything
He's got this dream about buying some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one-night stands
And then he'll settle down
In some quiet little town
And forget about everything
But you know he'll always keep moving
You know he's never gonna stop moving
'Cause he's rolling, he's the rolling stone
And when you wake up, it's a new morning
The sun is shining, it's a new morning
And you're going, you're going home

Very underrated part of the world, I got out the day that Brussels went in to lockdown because they were hunting the fella that planned the Paris concert hall attack. Was bizarro world, police patrolled the street with sub-machine guns. Also learned there two different versions of Belgian waffles: the liege waffle and the Brussels waffle.

A year or two ago a fella blew himself up in the train station hall where I hung out to get on a train to Amsterdam.
