    A Bad Hibit I Can't Seem to Quit

      The first time I got hooked was the summer of 1990. I’d completed my first year of journalism and took a summer job up north. It was my very first time living completely on my own, and far from home (well, 1,000 kilometres, approximately. It felt like...

    Mmm...coke

    Actually, my Kryptonite is Mountain Dew, but where I live everything is called "coke" (Coke is good too.), so I'll go with that. It's insanely tasty, and, if not for its properties that are perilous to one's health, I'd drink a lot more of it. I used to be really bad about it...
