Expedient and unsatisfactory

My brother is really sick. Stage four colorectal and liver cancer, he may not be around forever. It's killing me, I can't tell you how inseparable we are.

I wouldn't even discuss the matter publicly but Buzz likes to see his name on the blog, sort of takes after our late mother. Anyway I am traveling to Toronto next week, checking in as it were. I am really looking forward to spending time with him. Wish he was feeling better.

I made my reservation through Expedia. After I booked the air flight, the Expedia rep on the phone said that she could suggest a good hotel for me. I booked it on her say so. Toronto Furnished Living on Pembroke.


I have never seen online reviews like the reviews posted for the Toronto Furnished Living Shithole.

My brother asked me what the hell I was doing, the area being overrun with trannies and drug addicts.

Of course the booking is nonrefundable and can not be cancelled. And I have learned something very valuable for the future. Do not trust Expedia.com. They do not adequately vet their properties and it appears that they could not care less.

Could it be worth it to just eat the costs and get a reservation at a place that is OK. Or, could this be the beginning of a dark and forboding Blue Heron story that might rival the tales of the Marquis de Sade.

I agree with Jon. You'll want to enjoy every second with your brother...it would be distracting, at the least, to stay in a pit!

Try flashing your blogger credentials at an Expedia supervisor

Thanks all. And although I hesitate to threaten with the powers of the Blast, I made just such a foray, Ricardo. Will keep you posted.

Travel safe. Prayers and blessings to your brother and his family.
