1:45 a.m. is not the time to concern yourself with the details of U.S.-to-Canadian currency conversion. Drink drink drink!

A good view of a McDonald's solarium from a moving bus.
This was from a bus in Kansas City, and thanks to this lucky shot I've been able to study the building since the bus trip.

That style of lightfixture affixed to that wall is a walk down memory lane. Reminds me of 1970s-80s American elementary schools and backsides of stripmalls.
