TRANSATLANTICISM

So after a month of being given the runaround, I finally got a piece of good news relating to my immigration application. 

I won’t bore you with the full timeline of fuckuppery and bullshit I’ve had out of the doctor’s office, but this morning they hit a new low when they told me that as my medical test revealed a possible heart abnormality, I would be required, under new guidelines, to undergo further blood tests.

This was pretty horrible news, as this would presumably tack on an additional couple of weeks to my wait time. Additional weeks that I don’t have, as I’m already at my deadline.

Fate decided to stop being a dick at about 4pm today, when I called the office (they never call me). My ECG revealed no abnormalities! I don’t need to take more blood tests! My results had been sent to Citizenship and Immigration Canada! After weeks and weeks of chasing this up, this was the news I had so desperately been waiting for. It had looked so bleak and shitty only hours before. I genuinely punched the air like a hockey player celebrating a goal.

Loud music is now playing. Relief is such a sweet form of happiness!

So I made a loud proclamation last year to a work colleague that the Raptors were an average team and if they won their division, I’d buy him a jersey.Unfortunately, I was only half right. The Raptors ARE an average team, but the rest of their division sucked a large sack of dicks, so they actually wound up winning the damn thing. Perhaps I should say they sucked the least.
I’d totally forgotten about it until the above photo was posted on my timeline. As a man of my word, I delivered one Raptors jersey. I hope it brings some small comfort when they inevitably get smushed into the ground by Miami in 4 games.

Yesterday I roamed around downtown with my GF and I finally got to try Burger’s Priest. I also watched Arsenal make it the the FA Cup final in the morning, checked out St Lawrence market in the afternoon, have a few ciders, and generally have a Cool Guy level chill day. This morning I got made an epic breakfast and cuddled up to watch Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The Worlds End, back to back.

Ladies and GentlemanThis is how you spend a dayExcept trade soccer for a real sport

Well I watched hockey too, but it just bummed me out, so I left it off.
