Search confessions

I keep checking my head

Spent all day at Synagogue for Yom Kippur. I'm not at all religious or spiritual and haven't set foot in temple for any service for over a decade. Tonight, even after a shower and washing my hair....I still feel the yarmulke on my head. I have no idea why, it's a mystery.

Thank you laundry room honesty

I live in a great friendly building. Had a multi-task exhausting day and forgot my laundry card in the dryer of the busy laundry room tonight and admit I wondered if it would still be there when I realized an hour later. There it was (and the clothes were dry). Small mercies like that means a lot to me.

Ontario & Quebec

Must be nice to get thier politics talked about every day here on Vancouver TV newscasts at 6 pm

Flat earth

The earth is fucking round! Tell me how the earth became flat! I dare ya. There is certainly a theory about how earth became round!!! Which makes sense!! Every other planet moon and star is round...why the hell would earth be flat????


It's amazing how LandlordBC justifies the 4.5% rent increase next year. Did any of you read it? It's probably still in the top 10 to the right of this confession. Whose wages grew this year? Mine didn't. Even if they did I'd get maybe $100ish more a month? Great! That will go to the expensive food in the store I have to buy. Heck! Maybe I could even afford brand name for fuck sakes. Just because you see a stat that may show that wages increased this year for some people that does NOT mean you can take it from us right away. We NEED these wage increases. We have been fucked in the ass by the Liberals so hard that we need time to heal.

Supply And Demand

With legalization coming, how many developers are thinking about adding a grow room in new homes?

It's Touchy

Can be awkward when you have a friend that you like but can't vouch for when it comes to employment.

Cognitive Psychology 101.

Vancouver, we need to talk about how you portray yourselves as the most open-minded people on earth while trying to contain anybody that opposes your views . You're trying squeeze people into a mold and create clones of yourselves while pretending to be individuals. The adults call this cognitive dissonance. I'm surprised your not all walking around slapping yourselves in the heads out of the fact that you're walking contradictions. I can't help but think that's why there's so many barking mad people running around this city because you're driving yourselves crazy. Take a step back and try to see it objectively, it's really crazy behaviour. Get better soon.

DTES Market Pot Seizure

does not surprise me. This is what they ended up doing to the people dealing pot at the Art Gallery. It seems like once some cops get a taste for kicking people like this, there's not much that can be done to stop them; I don't think that the Mayor or even Chief of Police can point blank tell them to stop enforcing the pot laws. Whether charges would be approved or not is another issue, but that is how things escalated at the Art Gallery---the seizure of anything that vendors put out along with threats of trafficking charges. So, this is what legalization will look like---anyone who doesn't have at least six figures to start a storefront or licensed grow is going to continue in jail, unless they want to go from being an owner/operator to making hourly wage from some large corporate outfit. For people who do have the six figures, depending on how things play out, especially when it comes to incorporating, selling shares, etc. there is a lot of room to grow. But for those who don't have the ante to sit at the table and play, it might as well still be Prohibition, albeit version 2.0.

New World Order

My workplace is a great example of all the worst things about globalization.

I love him

When we met we were both 18 and I was a struggling student so our lifestyles matched. Now I graduated and have been working for a few years and bought my own condo and hes still in the same spot. He lives for a week at his parents house, couch surfs at friends, and then stays with me for a few days and it goes on and on. He has the same job at the restaurant he had at 18 and I just think we're moving in opposite directions. I encourage him to get a trade or some certificate to make more money but he won't. I want a house someday and kids and I can't do it on my own. I don't understand how he has no money at the end of the month when all he pays for is food. I am embarrassed that I pay for everything because a relationship should be 50/50. I love him but I deserve someone better.

Toss up

Not sure who's going to die first - my dad or my dog.


Every time I'm about to sit down to eat a meal, I suddenly have to excuse myself to pee. Same thing with my dad.

Yom Kippur respect

To our Jewish communities on their 'Day of Atonement'. A time to make all things good & proper. Atonement is an Interesting word: ...................................At One Ment .................................... But who got the guts & the perspicuity to do, as the authentic Prophets of Old and the Peaceful Warriors of this age, ie. Gandhi show us: "You be the change you want to see in the World" ................ "when enough of us take care of first things first then, and only then, will we achieve critical mass for real change.

Just about done

I'm am so tired of supporting a friend who is has left her manipulating cheating partner (which took a couple years) and now she is seeing him again and they are trying to, or maybe going to work it out... "he has been better" "he makes promises" "things are changing" She is SO naive it drives me insane! She is a great woman although she's no spring chicken, and should know better, this cycle drives me batty, it's been going on for years EVERYONE dislikes this guy and she knows all the bad shit he's done.. so seriously WTF? How low is your self worth?


Al Halbrich trail

It was after three and I asked you about Neverland Falls as we crossed paths. I made it and got...
