I started writing these posts because I'm on leave and doing some travelling. I didn't want to feel like my time in Toronto was just killing time until another trip, but it's feeling a bit like that...
Nonetheless.... there was a comic book convention in town today, a small one because the big one is around Labour Day, so I went.
Click on the photos to enlarge them.

So wearing costumes of superheroes or sci-fi or anime characters or whatever ("cosplay") is a big thing at conventions. People are really nice and willing to have their photos taken...
|Not sure who this guy is supposed to be.|
|This guy was dressed as Sailor Moon. I thought a guy dressing as Sailor Moon but keeping the facial hair was pretty cool. I have nothing but respect for this guy.|
|Leaving the convention, the light was looking pretty nice, so I snapped this shot of the Elephant and Castle at Simcoe St and King St; December 5, 2015 at 3:12 PM.|
I bought about 4 to 5 lbs of grass-fed brisket. On Friday night, I put on a rub I concocted consisting
of various chilli powders, salt, various peppers, etc. I don't quite remember what I did. It looked like this, when I remembered to snap a photo:

I added some liquid smoke on one side, then wrapped up the brisket and put it on a baking sheet.

The brisket will be done in about 5 minutes. I'll report how it turns out either tomorrow, or (more likely) on Monday. Pics of the city tomorrow...
