Cleanup time

I was in the wrong crowd and nearly lost myself. I got mixed up with a lot of stupid people who were all about alcohol, drugs and partying. My life headed into a downward spiral. I’m way too old for the party lifestyle so I simply gave it up. Partying is something you do when you’re in high school and there comes a time when you need to grow up and get your head straight. My head has become a lot more clear since I’ve been clean and sober. I can’t stress enough just how awesome it feels to finally get rid of all the useless garbage that could have ruined my life. I lost a lot of weight, got back into my fitness and have been eating healthier foods. Alcohol and drugs have nothing to offer. Life is too short to be surrounded by leeching scumbags or fill your body with poison. Don’t follow the herd of sheep to the edge of a cliff. You are who you hangout with.


When I hear Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s sing “Over The Rainbow”, the tears come pouring out. It’s not the song because I’ve listened to Eric Clapton and Ariana Grande sing the same song and nether have any effect on me. But Israel’s version makes me fear of me ever hearing it in public where I will need a mask and sunglasses to hide the crying mess. RIP Israel, you had soul.


I've tried greeting people with 'Huzzah' recently. A little Shakespearean charisma to their boring 'hi'. But it's difficult pronouncing under a mask so it sounds like 'huzmmmmpfh'.


I don't get why people kill spiders if you find one in your home. I mean why really? It's natures way of removing bugs from your place. I mean if it's a spider that bites yes remove it. But jeez less bugs it's a no brainer! I found one under my chair and I was like Cool! Less bugs! Nice!


If you google my name, nothing comes up :)

Pandemic loneliness

I just fill the void with pandemic stress eating. So many ice cream buckets and buckets of fried chicken... I'm still not fat though... Weird eh.

I am an Asshole

I have known this for a long time now I try to be as nice as possible at all times but in some situations I can not help myself. The one who takes the brunt of this behaviour is my wife. I am very ashamed of this and I wish I could someday make it right but I don’t think I will ever be able to. She deserves way better treatment than I’m able to provide at times.

Runners not getting it, or getting it!

For the last many months, I've been walking the seawall around Stanley Park. I've noticed people with dogs, strollers and masks taking care of each other. NOT the runners. They approach from behind or even more disgustingly, right at you, some spitting, most panting and breathing heavily. I've taken to extending my umbrella or a vitamin water out with my left arm, to remind them, they are selfish and in my space. I'm actually enjoying their reactions as they realize what they have done as they run right into it.

Sorry not sorry

I confess that when I hear someone with almost no obvious physical imperfections talking about how they’ve just learned to “accept” their body and all its imperfections, inside my eyes are rolling. Come on! These people who weigh about as much as an average 10 year old, who are somewhere between 20 and 40 years old, who have buckets of money and resources for countless beauty treatments and physical trainers and dieticians, really think that they represent the rest of us? Even the non-celebrity types who have been blessed with amazing genes and who think that their looks are a personal accomplishment of some kind, who can pretty much wear a bag and no makeup and still look great. Pfffftttt.

Savage Love: Spelling of cum remains a seriously sticky issue

It's in the Scrabble dictionary but that doesn't mean that this word is universally accepted.
