Solstice In the City

Happy First Day of Summer! First, Canada Trip debrief: • I went to Calgary and back without getting molested or ogled nekkid! • I got a stomach bug in Jasper! • The Jasper Park Lodge, though I’m still desperately fond of it based on my memories, is probably my least favourite of the Fairmont Hotels (tho most I’ve […]

Gone Fishin’

If anyone needs me I’ll be in a torrential downpour in the Canadian Rockies. Wine will be drunks, walks taken, hot springs visited, and ashes spread (both grandparents, long departed). Consider this your open thread. I doubt I’ll have much internet, but you never know! Photos to follow.

Oh Work Drama, Really?

The trouble with having a job is that when things start to go pear shaped, it’s so all-encompassing, isn’t it. And it can also give you a light case of food poisoning, I find. Blargh.

Relocation Progress Report

Peter is in the process of setting up my iMac right now. Stand by. Further updates as events warrant.

Today We Moved Out

…Of the apartment we’ve been renting. Lots and lots of large boxes full of tiny crap. Honestly, moving is great at making one feel like an idiot consumerist jerk. Anyway, thought for the day: Why do furniture designers invariably channel their inner ugly when they get around to doing TV benches? Does everyone have an […]

Okay Yes We Moved

Ahhhh. So you all might remember the last time we tried buying a house, Peter suddenly got very popular with a certain fruit company? Well now he’s at the fruit company and very happy there, too, and back in early March we finally sold the last damned house and now we’ve officially bought, moved into, […]

Happy Easter!

Today was a lovely day. I went to church, repacked two boxes in anticipation of moving again, then had late brunch with the family with just enough mid-afternoon booze to really achieve the perfect holiday glow. So anyway, no news to report. However! On my way back from church (after stopping at Office Depot, as […]

What I’ve Been Up To

Blogging’s been sporadic lately. Mostly because I can’t think of anything worth saying about anything that’s going on (there’s only so much I can complain about the lack of anything coming out of Japan), but here’s how I’ve been filling the void: • Workin’ • Going through the complete The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency […]

This Safety Video Is RIDICULOUS

I can’t watch anymore: Safety Video (I’m not embedding it) This video was discovered by someone who used to work at a public library several years ago. This has not been edited in any way. This is 100% authentic. I found this on my Twitter this morning. Someone, I think Sali Hughes, who writes a […]

On 1st Class Rail Travel & Corporate Shuttles

So those of you with an eye on Twitter will have noticed I took the train up to San Francisco for a movie yesterday. On the train, I was thinking about something I spend a lot of time thinking about but a new thought occurred to me. So, no one in the Bay Area takes […]

SLOW… NEWS… Zzzz

I find everything that’s going on in the world SO boring right now. Anything that would ordinarily be of interest (war, politics, women’s issues) I find very “What’s the point?” to be honest. And I haven’t even found any really tasty holiday recipes I can distract you all with, either. Woe.

Oh, Hell

I was going to sneak away today (in between grocery stores) to buy some shoes. AND I FORGOT. And you know what tomorrow is? Thanksgiving. And you know what the day after that is? MADNESS. And you know what the weekend will be like? STUPIDITY. And you know what Monday means? THE DAMNED THINGS WILL […]

Of Flags and Fruit Baskets

I went into the office today finally to claim a desk. Peter went in for his first day of work and came home with a small goody bag. Apparently there’s a whole fruit stand on his desk but I’m not cool enough to see yet. He’s having a team lunch tomorrow, see. :( Then the […]
