I worked at the Silver Snail a long, long time ago. Superman died when I was there, remember that? 1992? Yes, long ago. Anyway, I did cash there and I was a bit of a snob about comic book fanboys, and had less than no interest in the actual comics, at least, anything superhero related. [...]

Remember this post? Remember how it was gross enough without the visuals? Ha ha on YOU. Shannon bought me a teeny tiny memory card for my phone and now I can post my phone pictures! Yay for everyone! Really. Is that not the grossest thing ever?
I got a new night shirt which I wore to bed last night. Funny how some of what I buy is specifically chosen to impress a certain 5 year old. Well, luckily we have similar taste in clothing. I miss you.
I got new shoes and I am finally wearing them to work today. I’ve got a birthday party to go to tonight (no, lovey, not yours) and I am hoping no one spills their drink on them. To be honest, I doubt it will be that kind of party anyway. Yep, they are Vans. I [...]
I’d been dreaming about having an air popper, so Shannon picked up some Jiffy Pop instead. It was surprisingly good! Not how I remembered it at all, not burnt or nasty. The only mishap was the foil bursting and popcorn flying everywhere. Then we went for a swim and the sky also looked like popcorn. [...]
They left just before it rained today to get groceries for lunch and dinner. I watched them leave the building, then watched them pet a little white dog before getting on their way. Of course I dashed indoors to get my camera to get a few long distance shots. They bike verrrry slowly, so it [...]
I got to make supper today because the other people that live here -and I am mostly speaking of the taller one- were out at Buskerfest all day changing the colour of their faces. I already wrote about making pickled beets, so I won’t repeat that story, but I also made stuffed zucchini and half [...]
We went to the CNE with Joan and Anika today, and we all had a great time. I hadn’t been in years and I had a feeling it wouldn’t be that great, but it really was, seriously. I am going again on Monday, I think, so I will see a bunch of different things that [...]
Since I the first time I read Found Magazine (yeah, try NOT to spend hours looking at that), I have been meaning to send in my box of ‘special stuff’ that I found at a certain shitty job I worked at. I know, technically it’s called stealing, but it’s dumb stuff that isn’t sellable and [...]
Ok, I wasn’t going to tell this little story, but because I had such a fun evening-in which I went to see Mamma Mia! with the woman I work for who decided that she’s so in love with Pierce Brosnan that he feels the same way about her-that ended so hilariously, I have to share. [...]
