Sunny Days

Driving over to get milk as one little girl decided the breakfast table needed more than her cereal dish this morning. I hate these stores. Limit of four on toilet paper today as four different customers ahead of me have carts full. They must be full of it. Also, as I was driving in there was this dude cruising along …

Vancouver Riots

Vancouver has become a black eye for Canada and Canadian sports…again. Second June in a row that a Canadian city has been marred by violence. Last year it was the G20 in Toronto. This year it is the NHL in Vancouver. In fact, this is Vancouver’s second riot spurred, allegedly, by a Stanley Cup Finals loss as they did the …

Sex and Oil: Canadian Summer Has Begun

Hockey season ended last night, so the Canadian summer can now begin. The Canadian summer technically starts as soon as the igloo melting season ends. Of course without the melting igloos, there would be no beaches. Canadians, however, deny the existence of the sun until the NHL season ends. In a more realistic sense, there is no Canadian summer. Prairie …

Guns and God: Scary Thought on Future of North American Politics

I have not written any political commentary in awhile. Today, Canada votes for the 41st time on our federal government. I was, in fact, the first voter at my voting station this morning. I will get into who I voted for, and why, perhaps another time. I will say that I had a frightening thought this morning. Before I am …

Weekend to End All Weekends

This weekend was particularly tough. A little back story, first. I know I touched on this the other day, but a few more details. Again, I will repeat, I have been in full job search since April. I recently have started getting some tugs on the fishing line. Since January 1 of this year, I have put out roughly 100 …

Squandered

My hybrid is cruising the dusk streets of Uxbridge, Ontario at the moment. Before you ask, yes…it is illegal to text and drive in Ontario, but I am not texting…I am blogging, so deal with it. Have just cleared the lights of town and heading for home. Awaiting me there is an evening with the girlfriend and the Doberman. The …

2011, eh? A Canadian Wish

We are the world’s peace keepers, eh? ¬†Well, perhaps we were, not so sure anymore. Whenever the holidays roll around, I always have this one song that bounces around my skull. A bit of irony with this tune. For one, I am big P Pagan and small W Wiccan, so Christmas tunes are generally frowned upon by me. Second, the …

Nice Beaver!

As I lay here under my covers watching the light come up outside, one thought has occurred to me. “It’s too fucking cold!” Being who I am, and where I live…this thought shames me. This country’s national animal is a beaver…a majestic animal that is a hard worker…and yes, I’m about to run with this a direction that does not …
