Uncle Chris, Tell Us a Story

This blog was started with a title…first fucking mistake. Second…I’ve two beers in and just opened a bottle of wine…there will be booze…I’m on vacation O_o If all goes as planned, this blog entry could be the longest I’ve ever created…no, not in word length…just that I plan on it still being on the screen when I’m ready to take …

The Serious Lesbian Librarian

I’m very rarely serious. This is a problem. I need help. I mean, seriously…well, that’s enough of that. I broke a sweat after three seconds of attempting serious thought…key term is attempting as I didn’t succeed. There are certain advantages to this. Generally, even though they are getting to the age where they try to hide it, I can make …

American Thanksgiving Traditions for the Non American

As is my tradition, I am taking a few days off this week coinciding with US Thanksgiving. Slight difference, this time in that I have to go to a pub in order to watch football on Thursday. I do not have cable nor satellite at the house, so off into the great wild I will wander. On Friday I will …

Glee

I knew that one day I would completely turn into my father…I just didn’t expect it to be over Glee. Had my daughters last eve and as we are driving home to their house “Jump” by Van Halen comes on my cd player…a live version I have with Hagar providing vocals as opposed to the original Roth version. My eldest, …

Network of Social Flaws

Was listening to a replay of a radio discussion from yesterday with my AM 640 Toronto morning guy, John Oakley, and the American punk from Minnesota …

The Half Time Experience

Football half time was only meant for one thing. No…not beer…that’s what the first two quarters are for.  No…not nachos…ditto on the timing of beer. Half time is the point of the football game when the goddess tries to distract you and get you not to watch the rest of the game. Now, this depends on a wide number of …

The Wild Wild Sea

I’m such a bloody nice guy. This is the third time I’ve had to restart this blog for fear of either provoking or insulting someone…and my kids wonder why I couldn’t cut it as a talk radio host…nor a comedian. Besides, I’m much funnier when I have time to edit. I do love the feedback my writing brings, more than …

Dull

Didn’t want to get up this morning…the doberman finally got me moving with his incessant whining…haven’t quite got him trained to feed himself, yet. Call it a hunch but today will be the last day of double digit temps for awhile…ten degree swing (in Celsius) just on the highs between today and tomorrow and they’re calling for only about 3 C tomorrow. …
