The future

Today I went to see off a friend who is joining the exodus to Alberta. Alberta has everything: jobs, decent wages, reasonable cost of living, inexpensive housing… It’s amazing all the awesome things you can have when you have oil. The only problem with it is that it’s Alberta, and everyone I know who has moved to Alberta from here has seemed to fall off the face of the earth. After a certain point you don’t hear from them again.

Someone turned on the blast furnace outside. I really wish that they would turn up the temperature more gradually so I could adjust. I’ve never been much of a summer person. Good thing where I work we get the breeze off the ocean.

Today is apparently the day after the day that Marty McFly landed his DeLorean in the future. We’re in uncharted territory now, a brave new world.
