    Yeah. I managed to get it somewhat ok but the external mic port left much to be desired. Good audio would have involved an external mic and mixing it in post. Wasn't interested in going that far.

    I bought myself Chris Brothers & Brothers pepperoni (about $40 worth), 4x2L of Big8 Lime, and a two-four of Olands and one of Schooner, hit the road and smuggled it all into Quebec. Merry Christmas to me!

    Oh, and stuffed my face with a couple donairs while I was in town. Worth the trip right there.

    I have been in Alberta for 7 years. Can get brothers/Chris brothers pepperoni here but I haven't had an olands or schooner in 7 years. Man do I miss those.

    King of donair opened some locations in Alberta a couple years ago. Thank God for that. Ive been forced to do my best to replicate the recipe. Does the trick but no where near as good!

    I was in Ontario this summer and ordered a 'donair' in Kemptville. It barely registered as a beef shawarma. There was much sadness, but it honestly was to be expected.

    15-20 years ago, the guy who started KOD opened a donair shop in Kingston. It was the only decent one - others I’ve heard about have always been sub par.

    I wasn't impressed with the taste of the donairs in Kingston. I've tried the two popular spots: they garnish them like a shish taouk by default, right down to the pickled turnips (of course you can have them with onions and tomatoes only). I'm pointing that out because it shows the pallete it is designed for. They're "ok".

    I did like the donairs in Ottawa, but the prices are absolutely horrible (I'm looking at you Centertown): I had to order two "large" to get a regular out east.

    I had a Bellybuster's in Sydney last week. It's as large as a Robert's donair, but tastes 100x better. And the price was absolutely worth it.

    A few Xmas gifts but in general I haven't bought anything outside groceries and gas for a couple months.

    I do need to buy a webcam though, thinking of doing a YouTube channel on tech instructional and how-to for fun...take me out of my comfort zone a little.

    Spend some time outside of the Maritimes, you'll find out. I've been out since 2006, I know what I miss and what I don't and what's available in my area and what isn't.

    Dehumidifier.

    Probably about to spend more money - discovered a damp spot in the corner of the basement which now realising is likely a crack in the foundation - combined with a downspout that had become disconnected in that corner of the house with record breaking rain over the last couple of months... ugh, not what I was planning for today.

    I assume you already have some waterproof bandaids for the nipples?
    1/2 or full for the Bluenose?

    Hoka Speedgoat trail running shoes. People either love or hate Hoka - I'm curious to try them on.

    I love mine. Chicken wings haven't been better at home ever since I tried them in that glorious little machine.
