Coucou, anyone out there?
Oui?
Salut, les amis! Thanks for hanging in there. I know, I know. I promised you words & images almost two years ago! TWO. YEARS. They don’t lie about time flying as you get older. (You know how I loved me some mixed metaphors.)
Believe it or not I had pure […]

Guilty. That’s how I often feel. When there’s no reason to feel guilt, I get annoyed with myself. Ah, regret, guilt’s evil twin.
Today some perverted pig flicked my right butt cheek as I walked back to work after a nice lunch with Dave. Spadina Ave. was sunny and full of pedestrians. One such lunchtime […]

It’s hard getting back into the saddle. What saddle? Why, the vanity blogging saddle, of course!
Dave (and others *cough* mum *cough*) like to tease me about they way I set priorities, but look who is laughing now! Ha! Actually, I’m not sure that I’m laughing all that much. I honestly love the work I […]

I had a bad day. It’s amazing how unproductive I can be when I’m really unhappy.
The skies opened up and wept with me today. Rain, rain, rain. Darkness too. I felt pathetic and well, I wrote a little story in my head (um, and I guess here, now) and the pathetic fallacy crept in. […]

It’s a bloody good thing that I didn’t sign up for NaBloPoMo because I’d be dead by now. Post or die, they say? Bang bang, he shot me down. Bang bang, I hit the ground.
I’d like to say that I’m in full hermit mode, but I’m not quite there yet. I’ve been wanting to set […]

I’ve been on a huge cooking kick. The desire to cook is always fuelled by stress. I guess the academic stress is really starting to pile on. Third year law students are just as susceptible to senioritis as undergraduates in their final year of study. I’ve always known that the academic slacking eventually catches up; […]

Canucks who grew up planted in front of the telly have now got the Smarties song in their heads. I thought that I’d pass it on since the jingle is looping in my head, driving me loopy. Actually, the song isn’t really driving me loopy. I am driving myself loopy.
You know, it’s […]

Nothing like a good old stroke of the ego to get the bloggy juices flowing. The darling Akio has called and I am answering. Here I am derailing the New York fashion world one blog at a time. Or perhaps this entry will be so boring the Mr. Fashion will get back to […]

Crapola. It is past my bedtime and I’ve got a major qi imbalance (yeet hay for the Cantonese speakers). Class begins in 8.5 hours. Lovely. Just frickin’ grand.
But here I am! Blogging!
I guess I got pumped when I read about Mrs. Kennedy’s latest idea, NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month. I have yet to […]

I don’t know if Santa Claus is going to pay me a visit this Christmas ‘cuz I’ve been a bit naughty. I could redeem myself by driving to school to hit my 4:40 p.m. class but since that would require lots of polluting and even more willpower, I’m staying put on my new Aeromat balance […]
