It turns out, Bell, when I cancelled my account, charged me $2.68 for "tolerance". Yes, I know what it means, but still, it's a nice illustration of telco manners.

I got to sleep until I was more or less naturally awake with my beloved last night. Not being a slave to the alarm clock feels very good.

Lots to do as usual: coding, administration-y stuff, studying... the end of the term is coming, though. I'm a little exhausted, but stuff is falling by the wayside a little more gracefully than it has in the past.

I'm having a funny relationship with the future right now. It's pretty unreal, even though I'm looking forward to, dreading and just acknowledging some fairly real things.

That's right up there with the 'Mutation Tax' I had to pay when I bought my house!

"Mutation Tax"? What the hell is up with Canada?

Its what you'd call a "Welcome Tax" in the States (which is just as bad a name, IMHO). Its called a Mutation Tax here because the French term for a change of address uses the (French) word "mutation".

Ha! I wish I could charge people for tolerating them.
