Tad, I found them at a shop on the main street of Gananoque, Woodchuck Gallery. They work with a local manufacturer in Thailand, importing the shirts directly from a small village there. Yes, the sizing runs small, but they noted that, and let me try them on - an XXL worked find, where usually I need an XL. I think they had some 3XL as well. The selection comes and goes as they import them in smallish quantities. Perhaps the most amazing part is that the shirts are machine washable! They're great travel shirts - wear all day in the car or airplane, and the occasional wrinkle just falls out with a shake.

Today's first world problem: the ice makers in the IKEA cafe were both out of service this evening!

1) Thanks, hiker!

2) No icecream at Ikea? I'm surprised there wasn't riots! Have you ever sat by the exit and watched how many people buy ice cream on the way out? (I was waiting for someone at the time, so only a small sample, but the number of cones flying out during those few minutes was impressive)

3) My problem for the day: I took Friday off, and after a three day weekend it is hard getting focused on work.

My cellphone provider sent me a text message notifying me that if I exceed 3GB/mo of data usage again, they'll slow down my connection.

WTF. I'm already paying $20/month more than their 5GB plan (the highest they currently offer) to keep my legacy unlimited 3G data plan. From a revenue/cost perspective, the last thing they should want me to do is change my contract (ok, next-to-last; the LAST thing they would want is for me to change carriers).

I'm prepared to spend far more than I'd save, just to spite them. By re-activating my satellite radio subscriptions and getting the hardware to make that work on my motorbikes, I could cut my cellular data usage to where I'd be spending less than half what I do now.

The thing that most annoys me is that I've nearly optimized my phone/bike setup to do everything I want it to (communication, navigation, and entertainment, over bluetooth) and now I have to start over.

On the plus side, it might allow me to integrate bike-to-bike communication into my system, which is the only thing I've been lacking.

I've never liked the feel of my laptop (poor key feel, track buttons that don't press consistently, a sharp edge along the front that bugs my wrists). But I've had it less than two years and really can't justify replacing it so soon. (the danger of buying something purely online)

Whereas my problem with the family laptop bought online is trying to get Windows 10 to recognise peripherals; the HP B/W printer, the HP Photosmart printer, the HP scanner, all of which worked properly with Windows XP and Windows 7 (were, in fact, plug 'n' play with Windows 7), now can't be found with Windows 10 - or if found, won't accept or run with their installed drivers.

FWP!

In the past week we have had mailshots from six different companies saying 'fibre is available in your area' and 3 phone calls from our current ISP asking if we want to upgrade.

We can't get fibre internet because there is no capacity at the exchange and there is no schedule for that situation changing.

I thought Quebec was the only province with a legal drinking age of less than 19? Alberta too?

Well technically since the wine you like is not from France it's not champagne anyway. It's sparkling wine, the name champagne is reserved for a specific region of France. Same as tequila can only come from Mexico

Yep. Due to such weirdness I never turned the legal drinking age ...

- at 16 moved from Ontario (19) to France (16), and suddenly was legal.
- at 18 moved back from France (16) to Ontario (19) and was no longer legal.
- While still 18 moved from Ontario (19) to Manitoba (18) for a four month work term, and was legal again
- By the end of the work term I'd turned 19, so when I moved back from Manitoba (18) to Ontario (19) I stayed legal.

So never had that stereotype moment of someone saying "We should take you out for a drink tonight, now that you are legal!" Also developed a healthy scorn for the fervor that some people develop when defending such arbitrary cut-offs.

The shopping bags we use in our home recycling center to separate plastic, paper, and metal are wearing out. And since we do almost all our shopping online, we have no way to replace them.

Actually not a First World problem. But a problem everywhere were you have strong legal restrictions on buying alcohol - or where it is exceedingly expensive thanks to a state monopoly.
Look into alcohol smuggling between Indian states or African countries. Or moon-shining is such countries - leads to thousands of deaths every year.

Having grown up myself between a wine-growing region (with wine cellar tours as early as in junior high) and drinking age 21 - I strongly advocate for liberal legislation and teaching a good drinking culture.
Restrictions only lead to setting too much store in the quantity of alcohol intake - when it is actually the quality the focus should be on.

My parents had crappy taste in alcohol so the drinking age was never an issue because it was disgusting. It's taken close to a decade of my hubby exposing me to lovelycocktails and now burbouns for me to find what i like!

We are going to steak twice this week (with the outlaws and friends, seperately). I don't want to wait until tomorrow!!

We have been watching food porn on nerflix to be fair...
