Marching orders

My partner of 7 years joined a religion I call a cult not long ago. Last week I was driving down Kingsway early one evening when I saw her drive by in a car with some random guy when she was supposed to be at church. I followed them to a sketchy motel, waited a while and went and knocked on the door. He answered and I told him to tell her to have her things moved out by the end of the month and to text me with when she would do so as I was going home to change the locks. Goodbye to her.


It’s not my imagination. I understand that now. Somehow he always manages to manipulate situations so that he gets his own way, time after time. We can make a plan to do something I suggest, but somehow it usually winds up being what he wanted to do instead. If you point it out to him he acts all confused and innocent and hurt that you’d suggest such a thing. He gaslights constantly so that you find yourself wondering if you’re just being too suspicious. But it’s happened so often that I no longer doubt my own perception anymore. He’s a manipulator, pure and simple.

Random coincidences

Do you ever wonder if what seems like a random coincidence isn’t really random? I met someone through work a few months ago, and we have a lot in common that made us feel connected (not in a romantic way). Even the way we met was serendipitous. So yesterday I was given some documents of theirs to read, that included a lot of very personal information about their family, including dates of birth and death. Here’s where the coincidences come in: several of those birth and death dates coincided with birthdates of my own family. 4 of them in fact, which just seemed odd. It’s like that 6 degrees of separation concept in a way, and it makes me ponder the significance, if ther is any.

Arachnophobic about city art

I hope the city takes down that big awful spider by the skytrain. It's not that I don't like spiders. I just don't like 99/100 city art installations. What a waste of money. This spider probably cost a billion dollars.

It's a sad statement...

When people depend on Tik Tok or Instagram etc for their livelihood & the promote their products.

Never seen...not going to watch it.....#toomuchhype


I don't want to be cynical, it's usually a form of self protection for myself. In the last 5-6 months many, many, many... more than the fingers I have on both hands, couples I know have had their first child. All of them between 30-45 years old. They are ALL beautiful couples. They ALL seem good together. Statistically, and what I know from life, is half will the relationships won't last. Heck, the baby will actually intrinsically be the reason. I look at them all and can't figure out who fades and who lasts. In a perfect world they all thrive... but it's not a perfect world.
