Baby steps

It has been a while since I've posted anything, so I suppose I should start with something small to ease myself back into things. Here are a couple of factoids about me that, until now, I've never disclosed to anyone. I've kept them a secret from the world because they're really very trivial; but then again, these are the little dots that connect together to delineate my individuality. That and I'm also very bored; and so, here you are:

1. When I board the west-bound TTC train by myself during rush hour at St. George station, I always let everyone rush onto the train before me so I can get on last. I do this because the way the stations are designed, once the south-side train doors close at St. George, they won't open again until Islington or somewhere thereabouts. This weird quirk in the TTC gives me a nice little alcove to settle into without being disturbed by the coming and going of other passengers. It's a small thing, but it's a secret that I've guarded with some satisfaction ever since I discovered it serendipitously some time last year.

2. Whenever I walk by the Metropolitan hotel and a Crew Transport bus arrives from the airport to unload a group of uniformed flight attendants, I hum the theme song from the movie Catch Me If You Can. Weird, I know.
