Managed to break my diet yesterday due to free bake-sale food at work! :(

I've been playing with BlogShares a little bit, it's moderately fun. A sort of stock-market for weblogs based on their popularity and outgoing/incoming links and such.

Market Snapshots:
Adam's, Mine, Mr. Windermere's, Greg Gorman's, Scott Stanley's, Sean's, Vicki's

In terms of valuation, Sean's blog is beating mine by a small margin (B$7500ish vs B$7000), but I'm confidant that it's due to technical problems which will shortly be resolved! In terms of share price mine is currently winning by huge margins(due to share purchases by a multi-billionaire who now owns 80% of my blog's shares (I recently sold all my shares when the price jumped!)

This weekend marks the end of the Toronto International Film Festival, I've wanted to go to this thing for a while now, but it doesn't look like anyone else is interested enough to cause me to attend.

A semi-eventful weekend has just passed. The western fair started this weekend, so I went to a demolition derby there with Jake, Jane (Erin's friend) & Erin. It was amusing, the magic show before it was a bit of a joke though, several London personalities were made to disappear. The fair made me break my diet by having an absolutely awful chocolate ice cream waffle from a jerk vendor to boot!

Vicki, Jamie and I went back to the fair later that evening and had some $0.99 cheesecake at the slots, then we ran around on the ice on the way back to the car across the street at the sports arena. No one was around and Vicki was concerned about being arrested. We weren't.

Went back to the fair area on Saturday and managed to squander away some money I didn't budget on blackjack at the temporary charity casino at the fair. Kyle & Jake were playing hold'em there for a large portion of the weekend.

Saw Resident Evil: Apocolypse that night. (Review link to follow)

Sunday, had a nice brunch buffet at the Flying J truckstop (Country Buffet). If you go before 2pm, they'll only charge you $8.99 for the brunch, and you get to eat lunch/supper when they replace it at 2pm! (Weekends only). Jake, Erin and I were on the way to a corn field maze near Belmont, which is why we were dining at the 401 in the first place. The corn field maze was a bit of a bore, but better than sitting at home, it was also hot. I managed to sneak into the maze (since it's a big fenceless cornfield) and saved myself $7. I then suggested we go to the beach, as I've been hankering for more swimming all summer and it was almost over, so off to Port Stanley we went, had to buy some swim suits on the beach, but they were cheap since it's the end of the season.
