Ah, Labour Day. The last day of freedom before school starts for any of you youngsters out there (and masters students). Once you enter the workforce, Labour Day is just another stat holiday, making it awesome. For me, I go to the Fair on Labour Day. The last day of the CNE or PNE (depending on which city I'm in in any given year). And since I've moved to Vancouver, without the benefit of being close to Canada's Wonderland, I go to the fair for one reason: the Funnel Cake.
I may also eat some deep fried oreos today. And maybe deep fried butter if I work up enough nerve or convince someone to try it with me. Anyways, hopefully you find something to do today, especially if it marks the end of your summer vacation. Here are your links:
