Oh come one! Honestly....

I generally try to get in for 8am, so that I can justify leaving work at 4pm.

I don't make it that often lately. Some days, I sleep in, or spend too much time shaving/making lunch/whatever.

Today? I was delayed 15 minutes by a slow moving house. That's right. A house, crawling up Islington. The bus had to go around.

I declare today Stupid.

Don't move out to the country. My ex-boss used to just look at me and ask, "What kind of truck was it this time?" It was sad how often I had a different, and more amusing answer for him. Houses were not uncommon.

Ever been stuck behind a truck full of tree trunks? I could never get over imagining what would happen if they suddenly came loose.

See, on a highway, it wouldn't be that remarkable. But its pretty rare to have a house blocking entire city streets for long periods of time - it started moving from college to dundas at midnight, and had made it to islington just south of the 401 by 8:15. So, 8 hours along city streets, still not finished.

why is there a house moving through the city streets of toronto?
aren't there enough houses filling that city as it is, without more coming through?

That may be the problem; the house was, in fact, leaving the city.

oh yeah... sometimes people move existing houses and not just new ones
that hurts my brain

I hear ya...
This morning I sat at a light waiting to turn left behind two cars for a full five minutes. This light normally cycles in no more than one minute. After those five minutes I pulled out of the line, turned right on red, pulled into a parking lot so I could turn around a go the way I wanted, turned back onto the road and drove through the light, which was still green and stayed green until it was out of sight in the rearview mirror. (Holy run on sentence Batman)
