Aw, thank you! I’m also looking forward to it because this story is about to break one hundred pages and nobody’s gotten graphically laid yet and it’s pissing me off.
Anonymous said: Wait, Roosevelt established a presidential library in 1941 at Hyde Park. It's supposedly the model for the rest of the lot. Why are you giving his records to the Library of Congress? (No, no, I'm not haunting for updates. Not at all.) (Random complaining anon is highly random.)
Further clue: The reference for that snippet is not deep or accurate so much as fueled by my love of shitty movies.
I can’t tell what is killing this chapter’s more deeply: the fact that I was playing family host for 2 weeks or that I hate writing action scenes. BUT ANYWAY to tide ya’ll over, a little preview, and extra bonus points for people who get the reference on this one.
Bulk Barn is an only-in-Canada godsend to thrifty-minded moms from Halifax to Vancouver. It features hundreds of bulk items in giant bins that you can scoop out into little bags; everything from corn starch and flour to various candies to the best part of Lucky Charms (the marshmallows.) There is also a surprising number of piñatas in every store. There are over 200 stores across Canada in every province, and every Canadian alive is guilty of secretly sampling from the bins.
I unthinkingly took Pru into a Bulk Barn last time she was here and now it’s her favourite thing in Canada, including me.
I WOULD HAVE LEGIT MOVED TO TORONTO IN THE MOMENT I REALIZED THEY HAD LIKE FLAX BY THE OUNCE.
