I have been childless, but not dogless, since Friday.Continue reading “When the writing sabbatical merges with family time”
Good afternoon from the most miserable, disgusting, wet, cold November day in Toronto.
It’s the perfect day to stay in, to focus on unfinished projects, to write stories.
Well, theoretically.Continue reading “Weather misery leads to writing productivity (and Patreon)”
Today I looked up the expression
The bane of my existence.
I didn’t really know what it meant, so I wanted to ensure I was using it in the correct context.
I’m typing this on mobile with the index finger of my right hand because my wrist hurts.
Also my ass, and my left ankle are sore as well, if you must know.
This morning we had a 15 minute virtual appointment with my daughter’s teacher to discuss the progress report that came home on Tuesday.Continue reading “Zooming with the teacher”
Back in August I was sitting around somewhere scrolling through social media when a headline caught my attention.

Disclaimer: This is a rant about covid. If you live in an American State or some nation that is open for business as usual, please don’t comment here with a political agenda. You can comment if you want, but think twice before you hit publish if you’re going to tell me how you had a steak dinner in a restaurant or went to a party at some club or how all your stores are not going out of business because they are all open and functioning as normal. I don’t give a flying
fuck crap which way you lean in terms of your political orientation or covid and I don’t want to engage, or have my readers engage, in a political pissing contest on my platform. Please and thank you. I’m just ranting here to get the unfairness of all this crap out of my system. #SorryNotSorry
My email exploded. There’s a bunch of messages coming through from the hockey manager. My teenager, who is 15, has played competitive hockey since the age of 4. This is probably his third last year of playing competitive – after he graduates from grade 12 (he’s in grade 10) he will probably be done. Unfortunately, this year has been nothing short of a clusterfuck.
For obvious reasons.
But here’s the thing.Continue reading “Detouring with a little rant”
It appears that most of you are fascinated by my draft folder I mentioned in yesterday’s post. The one that contains 557 unfinished thoughts, as someone put it.
I don’t know if I’m the weirdo, or you guys are! 😂Continue reading “About those drafts (you asked, I answered) (sorry not sorry)”
Full disclosure: Just because I’m not publishing on my blog here doesn’t mean I’m not writing (blogging).
I pondered earlier today if I should revitalize a draft I’ve started and post it, maybe pre-schedule it to post tomorrow or another day, since life has gotten in the way of my blogging routine. But then, I saw this: Continue reading “You choose, I respond”
I’m currently obsessed with this chocolate bar.
I ate what was left of it today after I returned into the bedroom to have some decompression time. Because all day today was go go go…Continue reading “On the eve before Friday the 13th 2020-style”
I used to like this lamp.
I selected it, bought it at HomeSense or some such store during the renovations a bunch of years ago.
A friend who knows how to install electric things without electrocuting himself or others installed it.
It hangs over the dining table.
I now hate this lamp.Continue reading “An ordinary day when nothing happened”
