I even know that, at 9682 Jasper Avenue in that city, there is a 1914 building (designed by an architectural firm called Magoon and MacDonald), which once housed a nickelodeon called The Gem. I'm quite sure that many citizens of Edmonton do not know this, which either allows me to adopt an attitude of smug superiority toward them, or should cause me to feel foolish because, without even the miserable excuse of being a resident of the place, I have probably wasted more time absorbing trivial information about-- or aboot-- their city than they have.
In between watching guys I don't know damaging themselves, various objects, comestibles, and each other, and gathering useless facts about a place I've never seen, I did go outside and watch parts of the sky being unveiled by the drift of clouds. I doubt that this activity was any more pertinent than the others, but at least it didn't involve any sort of mechanical device that consumes electricity. The outdoor air is undoubtedly cleaner than that in the house, too, and it smelled of pine trees.
No deer were frightened in the gathering of information for this journal entry. Feel free to attempt to duplicate this activity at home.
