Don't Fix It If It Ain't Broke

At work, every new software version upgrade seems to work worse than the previous one, but may look a little slicker.

Dump on Trump

Ya mean while he's sleeping with his mouth open? Cool

I miss you so, so much

I can't wait until you come back. I've never been more depressed than I have been this winter... I'm the only person in my circle of friends that isn't busy nesting with their partner right now, and I'm feeling very isolated and left out. I know I should focus on living my own life, finding my own joy, and doing my own things -- being alone is okay and should be a healthy thing if you're secure with yourself and have a strong constitution... but you're such a big part of my life that it feels strange, almost foreign to do these things alone right now. It makes me feel needy and like a weakling, but maybe that's just the case. I push on because I have to, but I'm tired of dragging my feet. I just don't know how long I can go before I see you again. xo

Weird "I Saw You" is full of people trying to track down the cute and cool stranger who smiled at them and left, while "Confessions" is all about lying cheating heart breaking sacks of shit who won't go away. The grass is always greener, I guess.

Beyond Meat

I have been reading a lot of pro vegetarian/vegan and anti vegetarian/vegan articles lately. As a self confessed omnivore who has a pretty broad palate I am keeping an open mind as much as possible. There is one thing that is never mentioned in these articles though that creates confusion for me. If meat and dairy products are not meant to be part of our diet why do so many producers of vegetarian and vegan fare go to such lengths to replicate the taste, texture and mouth feel of meat and dairy products?

Cowpoke caravan

You drove from Alberta to Ottawa to protest gas prices!? Ok listen up Jethro- now that we gotcha here I think we'd best make sure y'all're fit to operate large vehicles. Pull over!


I'm a Vet, no the animal kind, the kind that has been places and seen things you should not see, so yes, I have the PTSD to go with the badge of being a Vet. I'm in the process of splitting with my wife who has had enough of my PTSD. Truth is, I can't really blame her. She doesn't know how to deal with someone who has PTSD, and that's not her fault. I have loved this woman with all my heart and everything I ever had. I always thought she and I would be on the porch in old age rocking in separate rocking chairs and still holding hands. I have put on a brave face in light of our splitting up our possessions now and boxing things up. The truth though is that I'm very afraid of myself after she has left. After she has left, I will have nothing -I have no children, no parents, no siblings, and she is taking the dog. I know that at best I will be living inside my car within a year, at worse, well, I dare not speak it. I fantasize about getting a truck and camper and traveling to see more of North America just to keep my mind off of my impending desperation and loneliness -but it's just a fantasy.

What has happened to this city?

Vacationed here with family for several weeks every year from 1988 - 2003. From Alberta originally. I left a sleepy, waterfront city with a rising food scene and plenty of great flea markets, bookstores, coffee shops and culture. Came back with my partner for a weeks' vacation this week for the first time in 14 years. Jesus Christ. Overdevelopment everywhere, towers on every block, expensive as fuck, no heart, no soul. And what the hell happened to all the local pubs? When - and why - did this city change like this?
