In Summary



















The FFIB celebrates the bass player's winnings at Caesar's Windsor. I look that way because it's 4.00 in the damn morning.

2: minutes I had to spare when I boarded my train to Guelph.
8: dollars spent on amazing chicken and brie sandwich at cafe in Guelph.
300: kilometres traveled to Windsor.
1: band who no-showed the gig.
4: Chanoso stirfrys consumed by the Ictusband.
1: former EiC chatted with.
20: people in the bar to watch us play.
7: awkward moments created by my friend the drunken off duty cop loudly discussing the foiled romantic history between him and the venue's bartender.
40: dollars earned by the Ictusband. It was the first time we made a profit in at least eight years.
220: dollars won by bass player at Caesar's after we decided to gamble our profits.
31: dollars spent at Wyandotte McDonald's at 4.30 a.m.
1: drunk American crying in said McDonald's
4: hours of sleep before checking out of hotel.
1: delicious breakfast with family at Elias Deli.
5: hours spent at Trail family home. Way nostalgic, as always.
4: mid-to-late-90s albums listened to on drive back to Guelph [If I Were a Carpenter tribute album, Mathew Sweet's 100% Fun, the Trainspotting Soundtrack and the No Alternative compilation].

Total length of trip: 36 hours.

The Prodigal will give you a full report after work tonight.
