From both sides I guess we got too comfortable and didn't work much on the relationship and got too complacent....

It's definitely more white collar than Edmonton, but don't get your hopes up for a stylish, suave city. Bardamu has the typical Albertan pegged. I still get strange looks and the "what is that weird piece of silk hanging from your neck" (you mean my tie?) questions more...

Going back to Village Cuts...

I have been getting my haircut at Astor place since i moved here - so about 6-8 times now. I just walk in, ask for a cut, and they point me to whoever is free at the time. The place is huge, and the barbers don't necessarily work there everyday. If you are looking for a...

Thinking about trying Manhattan out for size since the money I used to spend on cabs getting back to BK probably evens out the rent costs. My only remaining hesitation is leaving a typical office environment, and working from home in NYC. Obviously a huge...
