Thing one: did you know that if you live in Canada and win giveaways from the USA, you will be charged a percentage of the item's net worth at the post office? I don't know why, and I don't know if this is a new thing but lately I've been winning things all over the map and then having to pay for them when they arrive. Not cool USA/Canadian border patrol or whatever.
Thing two: I am so excited about the response to my sponsor/guest post thing from yesterday. I can't believe how many of you hate public transit! :) There are still a few trade spaces left and a few paid spaces as well, so if you're interested, don't be shy! For those of you who already emailed me I'll get back to you soon.
Thing three: Have you ever heard of Fan Tan Alley? Here's how it looks in the daytime. It's in Canada's oldest chinatown (here in Victoria) and is only five feet wide. Here it is at night.
