For anyone who loves a chance to see hidden, neat things, the TTC subway construction this weekend means that the Bloor/Danforth line will be detouring through the "lost" Lower Bay subway station.

One of Toronto's few unused and forgotten subway stations, the Lower Bay subway station has been essentially ignored since 1966, six months after it opened. It is still occasionally used as a movie set. The Transit Toronto folk have an excellent article on it here, and you can see more pictures of the station here.

The subway won't be stopping there, but you have a chance to see it as it goes by. And if you miss it this weekend, they will be continuing the work for the next five weekends.

Dear brain,

I love you, I really do, and I know you're in overdrive over the whole faith thing from Thursday night's Supernatural episode - and I can't really blame you since it pinged soooo many hot buttons of ours, and I completely admit I didn't help by pushing you off the deep end with the total immersion in the fandom this week - but please? Just shut the fuck up for a few hours. Please? You're kind of driving me nuts. I'm exhausted with all the thinking. I promise, we'll do a nice long post later and get it out of our system. It will be fiiiine.

And if you don't? *holds ice pick near ear threateningly* I will POKE YOU. Or - WORSE - so help me, I will hunt down Care Bears episodes and watch them.

And NEITHER of us want that. So behave.

It's just past 9 PM, and the sun only set about half an hour ago. It's still light out. It occurred to me earlier today that at this time of year when the days are so long, we are in sunlight from when we wake up in the morning virtually until we go to bed.

I find it comforting to think that for these few weeks, we're all awash in light...
