Bye bye Stanley Park

Even though I live in the West End, Stanley Park is too far to walk to, except maybe Lost Lagoon. I don't own a bicycle and, due to health issues, Third Beach and the North side are just too far away. Besides, my elderly parents would never make it to the Tea House anyway, even if we had all day. It's no problem really. I just drive to Jericho, Spanish Banks or Trout Lake instead. Thanks to the parks board, I'm a tourist in my own city. I'm looking forward to the day when they outright ban cars from the city, at which point I'll just move to the Okanagan. You guys can just ride your bikes around the homeless camps and enjoy your green economy. Good luck!

I'm so attracted to a woman

And just my luck to be sitting there not paying attention when she walks past looking so damn good. Luck why has thou forsaken me? Right when I need a break.

Party zone

I get that restaurants with limited indoor seating now have set up patios to compensate. But now it looks like there’s a street party going on every night as crowded patios line the sidewalks. Obviously a well-intentioned move, but the optics of the end result is a bit off.

Airborne high anxiety

I have to fly to Ontario in a few days due to a serious family matter, and my anxiety is through the roof about contracting Covid19 on the plane. Air Canada is refusing to make even casual face coverings mandatory for it's passengers! In a plane full of recirculating air! I think this is incredibly irresponsible of them. It's bad enough that they are filling in the middle seats again, but now I have to deal with the possibility of being surrounded by a bunch of virus- spewing morons as well ?? This means that if I want to keep myself and my family healthy, I'll have to wear a high-end N95 type mask (not very comfortable) continuously for at least five hours. Who exactly is guiding Air Canada's medical policies these days, the orange man in the white house? What a terrific job he's been doing ... Wish me luck.

I like to fuck around

Someone I work with knows I post on here. What he doesn’t know is that I have known this for awhile. I also know he’s on another site I used to be on many months ago. I like to fuck with him. I say certain things that might be a close Reference to a post here to see if he figures it out.

Are we a paradox

Just finished smoking a joint, and had a thought about blackholes in space. So what if all these blackholes throughout the universe are just pulling all this matter and energy into a single point in time and space. All this matter and energy explodes in the past causing the big bang leading to the creation of the universe. Perhaps we have all lived and died all our lives an infinite number of times. Deja Vu prophetic dreams and visions people get sometimes.

Chubster

I can’t imagine being fat. I’ve gained ten pounds during quarantine and I feel awful. I need to get out more but I’m depressed so it’s hard to get motivated even though I know that’s the only thing that will help my depression and my waistline.

Covid outtakes

I confess that the lockdown permitted me to look at what I was calling once, a 'close circle' with a fresh set of eyes. It's not a circle anymore.

What’s happens

When you have it all but then don’t want any of it anymore?

Important

A few weeks ago, a friend messaged asking what I was doing for my 30th birthday, which is next week. I said I guess I could plan something, and messaged our group chat. 5 or 6 people replied saying yes. Yesterday, I checked in with people to see if they were still interested. Everyone who said yes forgot and now has other plans. One person, who was most enthusiastic, didn't reply. I've since seen on Instagram that she's out of town. The friend who asked me to set it up read the message and didn't reply, despite us talking about it since and her saying how excited she was. At this point, I would have loved for people just to reply saying they couldn't make it, but only two people actually did that. I cried for two hours.

I SAW YOU

That smile, though.....

You are tall, dark, gorgeous, and French (?), with a killer smile, and you frequently offer to...
