It's still quite hazy; did you know they have smog in Ottawa? It seems unbelievable, but it's true.
In other news, I went for a run yesterday. It took me 15 mins to run to the U of Ottawa campus. I hit the Rideau Canal pathway after that, and made my way back home. It was a long, hot run that I might have to reconsider in the future. There are a lot of other places to run here; I'll never get bored, that's for sure. Lost, maybe, but never bored.
Recommendation of the week: there are two, actually.
1. My dad really recommends Ian Tyson's new record. I'm not sure what to say about that.
2. My friend Monique really enjoyed The Story of B by Daniel Quinn: "It's definitely in my top 3". I'm glad that someone else employs a top 3 (My top 3 are The World According to Garp by John Irving, Barney's Version by Mordecai Richler, and Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood).
