THOUGHTS FROM ON TOP
Posted by Jesse Donaldson

Jesse Donaldson

1.) In Terrace, the Welfare Office is in the same mall complex as the liquor store.

2.) The new smelter upgrade in Kitimat employs so many people, they’ve had to rent a FREAKING CRUISE SHIP to house them all.

3.) There’s a 15-year-old girl in Terrace who has already written 7 articles for the local newspaper. When asked if she’d considered charging them for her efforts, she replied: “Oh, I’m not in it for the money.”

4.) Somebody in Northern BC has a Heisenberg Air Freshener.

5.) There is a funeral parlour in Prince George named “Assman’s”. Nothing says dignity like a service at Assman’s.

6.) I have it on good authority that the Magic: the Gathering scene in Kitimat is “about fifty strong”.

7.) Fort St. James had snow TODAY. Even the locals agree that this is weird.

8.) There is a high school in Houston where students aren’t allowed to leave a presentation unless someone asks a question at the end. This can lead to awkward moments when nobody asks a question at the end.

9.) There’s a place in Kitimat called Hospital Beach. It’s a scenic picnic area which also happens to be a storage area for heavy industrial machinery.

10.) Smithers. Just Smithers. Seriously. Actually just Smithers. Honestly. Do it. Now. Seriously, honestly, actually, just Smithers. Now.
