Springing Forward

Onward and upward, people. Spring has sprung and the geese are getting fat. Wait, those rhymes don’t belong together. Whatevs! Let me have this joy. It’s spring. Girls’ night was heaps of fun. The original plans collapsed, but the end result was predictably fabulous. One boy even became three! There were only two men present […]

Ready for take-off

There is way too much going on and it’s going on around me. I’m not making anything go. It’s frustrating. Thankfully, David and I are continuing bliss week together here in Toronto. We had a grand time in Montreal (mostly Repentigny to be exact) laughing and loving the new addition to the family. Since Dave’s […]

Sweet Dreams Are Made of These

Lovely lantern ladies paying tribute to the new addition to our world!* Félicitations aux parents, Lydia et Joël! Bienvenue Arno Jazz! I’m off to Montreal for the weekend to see my almost-nephew, le petit Arno** qu’il est superbeau! The little guy was born last week after lots of hard work by maman Lydia. I had […]

All Growed Up

Today I had lunch with an ex-boyfriend. Everyone’s awkward alarm is ringing now! Don’t worry, it wasn’t that bad. It was suprisingly pleasant. Not the most fun lunch I have ever had, but definitely not the worst. When we broke-up, we were both a bit broken. Well, at least I was. It was the right […]

Okay, okay, I’ll cut the snark. What can I say? I have moments where the attention whore within leaps out. Actually, she leaps up and down, “Look at meeeeeeeeeeee!” Lately, I’ve been thinking about writing more than actually doing it. To be honest, I’ve been really frickin’ busy so the whole reflecting on the goings-on […]

A Picture Says a Thousand Words

A big boo-urns from Csilsie, Judy’s grumpy old cat. That’s what you get for not commenting on my last entry. It’s cool if you don’t dig the architecture, but what about that blind date story? Reesie, I’m glad you like cats. This is a positive picture for you. 😉

Belated Blogging

Drumroll, please. Ta-da! I present some long-awaited photos from my trip to Cambrige, MA. The bitter cold and Dave’s fierce flu kept me from being too snap happy. Here are a few of the finest from a very tiny selection. Behold Mr. Gehry’s genius on a sunny day. This is the incredible Stata Centre at […]

Activists, students, lawyers, theorists, thinkers, workers, shit-disturbers…people who give a damn! What a whirlwind few days. I am absolutely beat. Toast. Fried. Knackered. The dreams are many, but they live on. We just got to stay strong. Public Interest Day (“Friday” to the rest of you) was a bit of a shmooze fest. Honestly, as […]

It’s Gilmore Girls night, yo. And I want to hype myself up more generally. GG to me! (Dave’s Francofriends seriously say this all the time so I no longer think of it in gaming terms but as Quebecois props.) Ha! But really, who am I kidding? GG only stands for Gilmore Girls tonight. The title […]

Spin, Spin, Sugar

As usual lots on my mind, but no time. Somehow, I make time for Olympic figure skating. My figure deceived people then as it does now, but I used to be on the ice at least three times a week. I have my only competition outfit still hanging in my closet. A little black and […]
