Please launch myself into space

I just got woken up by a phone call from my best friend in Toronto. Great news, he says, I just closed on my new house. Wonderful, I say, now can I please go back to bed?

But then he tells me how much his monthly mortgage payments are...and he keeps babbling on about some other nonsense--down payment this, amoritization that, eastern exposure, yard in the back, blah blah blah--I wasn't really listening anymore because, see, HIS FUCKING MORTGAGE PAYMENTS FOR A TWO BEDROOM HOUSE IN DOWNTOWN TORONTO ARE LESS IN CANADIAN DOLLARS THAN MY RENT FOR A STUDIO APARTMENT IN MANHATTAN IN US DOLLARS.

Now I feel sick. And I've got this really bad taste in my mouth. Reminds me of the time I got snowballed by this girl at the Feelies concert in Hoboken...couldn't eat anything creamy for a month after that.

So what should I do? Kill myself? Move? Infest his home with termites?

i think it's clear that the best course of action will be to burn down your friend's house so that you will not be faced by the financial razzing that it's very existence must be to you.

Oh man, sorry to say, but that was damn funny to read. If I were you I wouldn't mind paying more for a studio in NYC, because I would much rather have a studio in NYC than a two bedroom home in Toronto, but that is just me.

Peace,
Steve

location, location, location...

Even Toronto compared to London is a big difference. My brother already has a house mortgaged there, and everyone who I know who lives there pays next to nothing for beautiful downtown apartments.
