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 […]

Is it so hard to understand the concept of keeping quiet in the library? You’re here “studying” at a university library, a law school library no less, so I imagine someone introduced you to the concept of keeping it down in this hallowed place of silence. So that means you are being insolent. I have […]

So I’ve been bragging about being more patient as time goes on. I’ve still got bragging rights, but boy oh boy, it hasn’t been easy. In the past few days I have witnessed and been victim to so many acts of stupidity that I am truly amazed that I even have the patience to […]

I’m constantly teased by my family for being a spazz. Amazingly, I am good at laughing this off now because I am no longer the spazz of years gone by. Sure, there are times when I pound my pillow before angrily dozing off but such days are thankfully rare.
I attribute this newfound ability to […]

I got a really awful hair cut yesterday because the stylist just wouldn’t listen to me. He had a creative vision that I was supposed to trust. I kept protesting, “Um…the layers are getting too short. Can we keep them long?”
At that point, I should have just left; but I stayed. I’m weak like […]

As if the rootkit fiasco weren’t enough, Sony has infiltrated the minds of foolish French politicians. Evil, evil, evil.
From this NY Times article on the riots in French suburbs:
“We see among the rioters kids of 13 to 15, who are swept along, who are encouraged to take all the risks, and the […]

I’m feeling snarky today. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the fact that there are lots of sucky people in this world and I hate them. Maybe.
Let’s see. Well, there’s the girl who stole and presumably consumed my dragonfruit and yogurt. Maybe she’s the same girl who always leaves the fridge door […]
