"it's not like tv, you don't have to bail him out, he'll be out in a couple of hours"

so it was another night of drinking...not as bad as last weekend, being homecoming and all...nothing can really compare to that (started drinking at 6, may have consumed over 7 pitchers of beer with two other people...the events of that night are still up for debate). but i digress, so last night i attempted to drink again, apparently i can....but i did it in moderation, anyway we went to the tasting room for apps, i have to say the food there is fantastic, after that and some wine we headed to joe kools. now being only in my early 20s, i was a little disturbed by all the old men around, and i just kept thinking why am i here? especially when i was acosted by hairy chest man, and his sidekick herpes, who asked me if i was 27, and if my older sister (who's 7 years older than me) was my younger sister...kind of a blow to the ego, especially when im at a bar like that...honestly
so the night continued to get worse....until walking down the street, i see three cops arrest this guy, and his trashy gf screaming...it was rather entertaining...she was freaking out about bail, and the cop was like "its not like tv, you dont have to bail him out, he'll be out in a couple of hours", and into the paddywagon he went....another fine example of what london has to offer
thank god i only have 4 more months of this city...and yes i am counting down :D

Hahaha. That's the best quote I've heard in a while. How can you possibly want to leave this city?

Affordable housing, beautiful countryside, people our age everywhere, and the hottest girls in Canada (at *least* tied with Montreal).

An international border an hour away and access to every Southern Ontario city in three hours.

The only thing that bites is how nice days waft in the strong smell of manure which permeates everything. And I do concede that it's not pleasing. But still. HOT GIRLS.

somehow the idea of "hot girls" doesnt necessarily appeal to me as a draw for living in this city...plus come on, if you had to choose between new zealand and ontario, which would you choose? and if you're going for the hot girl argument, they have hot girls with accents....my appeal is that they have hot men with hot accents...which london is sorely lacking

London...New Zealand. Okay, you win. Maybe. It looks like the edge of the earth which could be good or bad.

According to my research, all that's in New Zealand is sheep, grass, and hobbits. At least London's men only have hairy chests, and not weird little hairy feet.

You do have a good point about the accents though. The Canadian accent ("aboot") just isn't all that attractive.

did your research include reading the lord of the rings? i'll agree that there are sheep, but i'll be in auckland which is the biggest city...which includes hot rugby players...i stand by my assessment of new zealand men being better than western guys :)

Lord of the Rings is a good, scholarly source of information. I can't say I'm impressed by hot rugby players, but I guess you "girl" people have other priorities.
