I went to Canada for my summer vacation. While Zach was running the ship, and while all the guest editors were guest editing, I was north of the border drinking beer, buying weed from Hells Angels, and constantly eating poutine and sushi.

They have fireworks in the bay several times during the summer, they have a garbage strike that doesn't seem to effect anyone. And they have an odd relationship with buying booze in that they make it very difficult to get at unless it's from a private store, in which case it's quite expensive ($10 for 4 PBRs).

I ate sushi four days in a row, I ordered room service twice, I was involved in a threesome, and I saw the Simpsons movie in a multiplex that had a Food Court. And I played strip video poker with some porn stars from the '80s.
