Montréal sewers
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

They're putting in new sewers on my street. Now, it isn't a very busy street to begin with, since it faces a park. But you can hear the backhoe digging over the normal sounds in the area: birds chirping, children laughing, and hippies drumming.

I spent a bit of talk on my walk to the store comparing sewer technology. I have to say that the old sewers look like they lasted a pretty long while. Even the rebar seems to have held up to time. I wonder what that green coating on the new ones is for.

Yes, I suppose I haven't left the house in a while.

Oh, I've been trying very hard to be a homebody. And succeeding fairly well.

The green coating is Soylent Green. ;)


We should go for tea sometime :).

It's true! It doesn't happen very often, so it feels rather nice.

We must live in the same neighbourhood, because I noticed those around too. My first thought was: I'm sure there's something cool to do with these big pipes. Photography was one option. Recording vocals was another.

Do you take a tape recorder whereever you go, so that you can record vocals?

No. In fact, I had neither camera nor sound recording device with me at the time. But I considered going back with either one or the other.

I have a (borrowed) mini-disc recorder I could use for that. It seems like whenever I bring it with me, no opportunity to use it comes up, but as soon as I leave it home...

You have to take these things everywhere. Otherwise, you just miss out.
