I agree about Mastermind though. I got a couple of sets there last year.

I would love to go to the outlet mall I have nothing but bad memories of the FBI driving around lost for two hours when we went there.
Come to kingston only 4 hours away!

Hey guys, I might be the person who's most likely to actually GO to Calgary, if my family happens to have another reunion there this year. :P

...Of course, I'll be on a plane for 4 hours. Fuck Canada's large size. It's such a fatty.
Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

Do 'go' count if you already live there?

I won't be going to Calgary unless my family does a west coast road trip like we did with the east coast a few years ago. Of course, the east coast is a hell of a lot closer, so I don't think it's likely.

Also, all of my relatives live in Ontario. Seriously.

Yep, I still don't how if it's a good or bad one.

Difference with me is that I also live in Ontario. It's convenient for get-togethers, but it means I don't get to travel to other provinces or to the states to see them.

I used to go to that one all the time before it closed. :l

There's also one in St. Jacobs, which also has a sweet farmers' market.

Oh yeah, I completely forgot about that one. I've never been there, but I've heard of it. That would also be a good place to look, it's a bit farther north though.

Godamnit, I'm gonna go there anyways. As long as there's good lego, I'm good.

What, that's dumb. If you're in Vancouver then just drive across the border to the store in Bellevue, or if you want to avoid sales tax then go to the Tigard location instead.
