|monnie_doggett||12:45 am - fighting back against street pervs and subway creeps|
Some of you may've heard of HollabackNYC: http://hollabacknyc.blogspot.com/
It's a site where you can send in pics and stories of perverted assholes who harass you on the street. You know, the ones who make you feel uncomfortable wearking a short dress at night or a bikini at the beach. Hell, even when you're fully dressed sometimes.
My boyfriend and I decided to make a Toronto version: http://hollabackto.blogspot.com/
It happens to me all the time, I see it happening to other women all the time... and nothing gets done. This at least gives us a starting point to getting back at these creeps.
It is NOT okay to feel unsafe or intimidated based on how you dress or what time of day you're out; it's not okay to take their comments, gropes, leers and disgusting behaviour, and it's not okay to just ignore it.
We're still just starting up the site and currently accepting stories and pics of your encounters with these creeps.

I am considered legally disabled & am, for the most part, home bound.. Does anyone know of any Work At Home opportunities from any Toronto Based businesses?? While I'd prefer something local, if it's Canadian & I don't have to go anywhere that would be good too.. Thanks!

Hey everyone! I'm moving to Scarborough for August or September. I will be a student at Centennial but my classes will be at the HP Science and Technology Centre campus not Progress campus. I'm looking to be as close to campus as possible, but a short commute wouldn't bother me for a better/nicer area or
What are the best apartment buildings in that area? I am interested in a 1 bedroom.

Where's a good place at the Scarborough Town Centre to go for a haircut?
My hair is very fine and curly and I'm way overdue for a cut, ideally from someone who is good with curly hair and would cut it dry.

|zugswang||02:00 am - Missing pet success (and/or failure) stories?|
As the title implies, my cat went missing on May 5th.
I've contacted the shelter, filled out a missing pet report, went door-to-door with his picture (yes, you can start laughing now) and will be posting lost pet signs around my area A.S.A.P.
If anybody has ever been in my situation, did posting signs actually work? Did you receive any misleading tips or phone calls? I keep imagining some punk-ass calling my cell at around 3 A.M. just to say, "I found your cat!" then follow that up with, "He was tasty!" which would actually be pretty funny, after the 10 therapy sessions I would inevitably need.
Any anecdotes welcomed and appreciated. Talk about your experiences with losing a pet in Scarborough! (Cross-posted to toronto - apologies to those who see it twice.)
