As has almost certainly been noticed, I’ve made a ‘few’ postings about an amazing week in Boston earlier this year. For some reason, a marvellous week in Toronto has got far less word space on here.
Lets be honest, I loved Toronto, and it would certainly rank very highly on my places I would love to live and work in, if I could. To be honest, Boston probably ranks 3 after it as well, and if anyone needs to be told where number 1 is, I’m going there in April lol. There might even be a change in order after that, who knows, its been a while since I was there.
But what happened when I was packing to come back from Toronto, I had a blonde moment! I thought I had carefully checked every drawer, and all the wardrobes in my hotel room before I left, but I was wrong. Somehow I managed to leave one brown jacket in a wardrobe, and only realise this when I was unpacking at home. I contacted the hotel, and they confirmed they’d found it, and were happy to send it back if I arranged a courier, and paid for it. Fair enough, I didnt expect them to pay for it to be sent home, but couldnt they just package it up, and bill my card? Nope.
Thankfully I have a guardian angel, or more correctly, a guardian succubi in the Toronto area, I think you know who I’m talking about, the one known as Tera! A quick IM, and before I know it, coat is picked up, packed up, and winging its way across the Atlantic back to me, and despite offers, no money would be accepted for doing this. I even got a postcard (still have it) in the package of Toronto as well.
But the point is, Tera doesnt just do all these wonderful things for me to help, she seems to do it for everybody at the Garden who needs help, most especially this year, someone we know as Kris (amongst a few other names!) and his move to Buffalo. But I gather from James (and one or two others) that I just see the part of it all. All this, and she takes the time to run the Nascar contest, and do umpteen manips at the Collective as well. How she does it all, I really dont know, unless…
Do succubi need sleep? 😉
I swear that if I convinced the Canadian authorities to let me move over there and work, she’d have a place sorted out for me in no time flat! Probably have the cable TV, and internet sorted too, she’s that type of person. Heck, if she could, she’d probably convince the Canadian authorities that they’d be better off with me living and working over there.
So the last planned personal tribute of the year goes to an amazing woman, known only to me as Tera. You’ve done a lot for me this year, and a lot for so many others too. I know these are only words, but you’ll know how much I mean them, thanks again for everything. Its just a shame we never got to meet.
No, I couldnt think of a suitable song, so settled for this little amusement instead
