They Put on Women's Clothing, and Hang Around in Bars

So, how was Canada?

Pretty much as I expected - big, dry, very clean, extremely friendly, but cold. Bloody cold. I mean massively cold.

Oh, and full of lots of things with big nasty teeth too.

See.

Reds Fight the Blues

In sympathy with the Glowy Box-organised "Blogs Go Dark" campaign (see http://www.glowybox.blogspot.com/ for further details) there will be no new blog entry on From the North today.

Well, except for this one, obviously.

I am not a scab!

I would like to take this opportunity to express my complete solidarity with my brothers and sisters across the ocean in the WGA and their strike against the faceless wankers of the AMPTP. As a fully-paid up NUJ member, remember the maxim. "If we all spit together, we'll drown the bastards."
