Alex will be at church with Katie, or so it was arranged and I piously hope will come to pass. I do coffee today so it’s even money whether or not I get to be upstairs for the homily portion. Sue is taking me in early and I’ll do an inventory and see if there’s […]

I read this book – which turns out to have been almost entirely ghostwritten – dozens of times as a kid growing up. I can recite dozens of jokes from it. I didn’t like the elder Hope, but the Bob Hope of the Road movies was a funny, funny guy. Here’s an article about that. […]
The ongoing crisis looms a little closer to North Americans. Sell your Airline stock. I’ve asked Paul to retire. Or to consider it if and when we get an Ebola sufferer coming through town via YVR. Katie is having a rough go, poor lassie, not getting enough sleep. Turkey soup is bubblin’ away. Jeff’s at […]
This is to describe the rhodopsin visuals. There are two tricky things about the painting. One is that I used fabric paint, and the other is that the centre colour, this sickly orangey yellow, has both copper and glow in the dark paint in it. Hopefully it will look very odd if you come upon […]
Once there was a man who when his girlfriend was moving out had to wait another week because the elevator broke. Then the truck broke down. SRSLY. WTF. For a while there we thought maybe this move wouldn’t happen, but after about 6 hours the truck magically appeared. Anyway, Mike and I had already […]
A lovely time filking yestreen at Tom and Peggy’s, Cindy also in attendance. I got to sing soprano for most of the evening, which is fine if I’m not singing loud. I hope everybody has a happy pride day! or not. I light a candle for pOp, and he knows why. You have a visit […]
This is the best novel I’ve read since the 40 rules of Love, and it’s a really really different book. I am finding it enthralling reading. (Except for the typos, and there were a couple of doozies). Historical characters – snared in conflicting loyalties and pushed to the snapping point time and time again, broken on the […]
mOm you may appreciate this.
mOm you have to see this. Also, I started saying Sing It Sister on my facebook, and now about half a dozen people have adopted this. heee I am a very influential person, but it’s hard to tell sometimes.
Post zombie apocalypse….
I wrote something like this in December 2004, so this is an update for that unsearchable part of my blog. Some of it is stolen from the earlier post, but condensified and tucked up. Ann Landers. When I was growing up, I read her column every chance I got. She asked people to be […]
Hey, it’s less than 5 k. I have to stop off at Thrifty’s and get veggies for the soup lunch. Yesterday Paul and Mike (Nita’s so) and Jim and Jan walked in the woods behind my old building. After we got ourselves good and wet in the rain and from examining honderds of decaying fungi, […]
“Get me a sniper rifle and some C4!” “Ooo, I like where this is going.” Apropos of nothing, the Battle Turkey of the Republic. A lovely picture of a turkey with erm accoutrements.
The Oatmeal does it again.
