Toto…I Don’t Think We’re On Twitter Anymore

Lately I have been stretching the boundaries of my sphere, shall we say. This all started, roughly a year ago when I finally broke down and signed onto Twitter for the first time.  Thanks to BlackBerry technology, I am not certain I ever sign off of there anymore...I wake up in the middle of the night, flip my phone open and let the Tweets sing me back to sleep. Just in the fall I made a new friend on there, it seems...we'll call her Molly.  She stumbled on to my blog and, liking what she saw she dragged me to a site she runs called Just Kinky.  Cute site that seems to be in a growth mode.  Since I joined in late December, the membership has gone up by ten percent.  I take full responsibility for this, of course. *cough*BULLSHIT!*cough*.

Hobble De Ga Ga

That particular term, "Hobble De Ga Ga", was one I heard from a morning radio host of The Mix 99.9 Toronto named Rob Christie...ohhhh...let us say 1994 or there abouts. It was his generic radio morning-man censorship of the word "fucking". Rob Christie is now doing morning radio in Edmonton...not entirely sure what he did wrong to deserve the punishment of Edmonton, but at least he is still going. Anyhow, I digress. One of these days I would like to post a blog while in the throws of the hobble de ga ga.  Then again, who wouldn't?...well, perhaps with the exception of those that do not blog.  As for those that don't blog, I agree with George Bush Sr.'s take on them: No, I don't know that atheists should be regarded as citizens, nor should [Read more...]

Snowmaggedon…What a Guy

I wonder if home insurance would cover a hypothermia accident caused by frolicking in the snow? This morning is absolutely gorgeous out here. The Sun Goddess is high in the southeast sky above Toronto and, if I am not careful, I could end up with a sunburn today. Snowmaggedon, however, was a typical guy. Big promises...blew his load early...fell asleep and slipped away to return to his wife in the middle of the night. A real snowstorm of "Biblical proportions", as some were predicting this to be, would shut Toronto down for a few days. Snowmaggedon was a bit of a joke...but the heart of the storm was pretty severe. I walked to the post office during it and that was difficult. I do not blame people for staying home [Read more...]

Biggest Snowfall of the Winter

Are the hatches battened? Is the fire stoked? Did you stock up on condoms? This is where society usually fails...that third question. Here, in the Toronto area, they are calling for anywhere from 20-40 cms of snow...for our imperialistic Yankee friends, that's about 8-16 inches. This is not the 30" the NYC was recently blasted with, but this year has been snowbound. Remember two things about Toronto. First off, we are nearly as far south as Rome and Northern California. Second, thanks to that lovely lady known as Lake Ontario, big storms are not the norm and are usually deflected south to attack Buffalo and Rochester, New York. Toronto was not built with major snow removal in mind...this is not Saskatchewan. I'm sorry, I digress. I [Read more...]
