Moving to a new place always requires a bit of a readjustment. Many of the aspects of your last home that you grew to know and love may be different, if not altogether non-existent, in your new home. Things like roominess, grass, or a comfortable bed. Sure, you can focus on the negatives – “It’s a miserable city”, “The people aren’t friendly”, or “Driving around is hell” – but why not focus on the positives instead: “The parking spaces are bigger than the ones in Vancouver!”? Why not? Well, for one – complaining is much more satisfying…
After my third morning in a row boiling water in a pot for my morning green tea, I wished I had a kettle. Well, seconds letter "wish granted" when Akemi pulled this out of the bottom drawer. Unfortunately, I failed to wish for the accompanying cord that would allow me to plug it into an electrical outlet.
Speaking of new places, we switched writers’ rooms today – leaving the dark, airless environment of the old writers’ room for the bright, noisy, somewhat chilly environment of the new one.
Inspired by the change in location, we finished breaking episode 3, started breaking episode 4, had another conference call to discuss the European shoot, and even found time to eat some chipotle-chicken burritos. How’s that for prolific?

Tonight, went to check out two new possible Toronto homes – the first cold and cramped, the second old and possibly haunted. Two more on tap for tomorrow night.
