I am strugg-a-ling with humidity in New York City. I arrived at the office on Friday with a bagel-sized sweat stain on the front of my shirt, looking like Tony Stark – Perspiron Man.

—What have you been doing in New York City, Jon?
—Uhh… Being Tom Hagen to a Corleone.

Jon: How long do you have to live in a city before you can claim that you've lived there? Six months?
Rory: How long is study abroad? That long.
Jon: So…five months? I want to be able to say that I've lived in the America's three largest cities.

1. New York City
2. Los Angeles
3. Chicago

Jon: Hmm… You can legally stay in Canada for six months each year without a visa.

1. Toronto
2. Montreal
3. Vancouver

Jon: New challenge!
Rory: Uhh… Calgary is actually Canada's third largest city.
Jon: Oh? What is Vancouver then?
Rory: Eighth largest, according to Wikipedia, behind Winnipeg and Mississauga.
Jon: Hmmph.

1. Vancouver
2. Surrey
3. Burnaby

Jon: New challenge!

A conversation with my boss:

—Going forward, where do you want to live, Jon?


—You've been very accommodating to me, relocating to the east coast and whatnot, and so I will accommodate you wherever you wish to live.

Austin. San Diego. Seattle.

—So where do you want to live?


—…New Orleans?

    Combined greater Vancouver area population is what gives it the size. Vancouver proper is pretty small.
