Unusual Toronto sighting: a baby mink rushing along the beach into Lake Ontario, late morning.
Heard in Toronto: “true that” (a modernization of the more conventional, “That’s true.”)

Heard in New Hampshire, the use of “daft” to mean “impressive” (e.g. “that was a daft 360”)

Seen in NH, these websites:

http://philipbloom.net/ and http://www.joeyl.com/

BTW – Joey L is 22 years old.

Watched in NH: videos of Maroon 5 (“Moves Like Jagger”), Adele (“Rolling in the Deep”), Mr Hudson (“Young Forever,” with Jay-Z)

Note that “Rolling in the Deep” has already collected more than 169 million views on YouTube.

Introduced to in NH: finger boarding (e.g.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiQc7TkkTxA)
