It was FREEZING in Toronto today. I took my Smartphone out to videotape something outside for less than 3 MINUTES and the fingers holding my phone froze.
The roads are all crusty with packed snow.
I was unhappy because I thought all the biz cards of mine I taped up in bus shelters stopped adhering to their glass walls and then fell to the ground.
I’m not crazy about putting up my business cards – it’s only one per bus shelter.
I was very worried about my normal Scotch tape not working in this weather that I went to Canadian Tire and bought some heavy-duty looking clear tape. It was $8. The Scotch tape is like $2. When I got outside I tested the new tape, but it didn’t seem to be sticky (I guess something to do with how cold it was?!). I tested it inside in warm temperature and it WAS sticky. (Update: I had to return that pricey Clear Tape. I got a Gift Card of the same amount for the return. They wouldn’t reimburse me, but ‘Oh Well!’).
I saw one of my old biz cards in the bus shelter near my gym tonight – and I was surprised it was still sticking to the wall (because it was with regular Scotch tape). I then tested it, and then it stopped sticking. I then I put it in my bag.
I’m uneasy about this weather. I need a cold weather tape. I Googled for that type of tape and found one called ‘Frost King’ clear plastic Weatherall tape. (https://amzn.to/2FWdmut)
There’s this dipshit who lives down the hall from me. He’s gotten a new dog. It barks NON-STOP. I’ve already called the authorities on him and they said it will take several days to resolve or respond to the issue. The dog probably sits in the entranceway of his apartment, and barks TOWARDS THE DOOR. I’m like 9 APARTMENTS away from him. I am not close to his door, and I can hear the dog CLEARLY. It is LOUD. Who the fuck gets a dog that is an incessant barker? It doesn’t help that this is probably a normal size dog (not a toy dog). The guy who lives there looks like a crackhead. Crackheads have a certain “look” to them. They are usually skinny. They usually have sunken cheeks or bony looking faces. This goes for ex-crackheads too. Basically a crackhead is anyone who does crack or has done crack. I’m not being specific here and I know I’ll be roasted for it – but GET OFF THE CRACK and gain some weight! If it’s too difficult for you to get off the crack, then figure out what triggers you to do it and remove the triggers, or stay away from the triggers. Also, try becoming politically active – because the reason you’re addicted may be because there is something political that’s pissing you off and you’re just denying that it’s pissing you off and then you take a hit. Healthy fats like nuts: pistachios and cashews.
So I searched where I can find this tape in my city, and apparently I could get it at Home Depot. Lowes, or Walmart. I may just return the supposed ‘better’ tape I bought today for a refund. If it’s not going to work in cold weather – it won’t be useful until April. I can’t wait 2 whole months for tape.
(Update: I’m editing this on March 5th ’19 and I am now using black Gorilla Tape from Lowes. It seems to be the best tape for my need). At the moment I am focusing more on building my Website for Energy Healing and Massage. I’ve temporarily stopped putting up my Biz Cards in bus shelters because I think people are too dumb and stupid to call the number written on them). Instead I have been going Door-to-Door and dropping my Biz Card into each mailbox of each house (actually visiting the Front Door of a house and having a Sales Pitch made me become an alcoholic…SO THAT’S OUT OF THE PICTURE). I think Torontonians have lost the ability to communicate face-to-face and only really trust and rely on Social Media and Websites to initiate communication.And don’t EVEN get me started on the White People who answer the door. The amount of Self-Hatred that White People have for their own race in Toronto is staggering. You can thank the Toronto Star for that…)
