What's the deal RCMP?

I listened to a woman telling this story at the cafe this weekend. of course, I don't know all of the details but this is the Cole's notes version. A drunk driver ran into her car. The drunk was from the US. Because no one was injured and the driver was from out of the country, the police gave her a 90 day roadside suspension in BC and a lift home. THAT"S IT! A drunk that could have killed someone is getting off with a suspension that means nothing since they live in another country. Apparently Americans can break the laws in Canada as long as they don't hurt or kill anyone. Meanwhile, the people they effect are left holding the bag. The woman who's car was hit is going to get nothing from ICBC because the driver was from out of the country an driving a rental. Any loophole ICBC can find to get out of paying people. Unless they have a good story about a neck ache from a tiny fender bender. Then ICBC pays out tens of thousands... What a fucked up system!!

Stop Asking Women When / If They are going to have kids

A woman just got married? Had one child already? 2? In their 30s? No matter what the circumstance, it is NOT appropriate to ask women if they want to have children. Ask about their life. Their dreams, their goals, their career. Someone could be going through loss, miscarriage, infertility, issues with their marriage, or can't decide if they want kids yet, they're trying to learn about themselves, or perhaps they don't want kids etc etc. It is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. Just stop!

writing on the wall

What does it take for Vancouverites to read the writing on the wall, 2018 home prices started to fall, it will be worse in 2019-2020 with plummeting prices, China having serious problems, Europe is at the beginning of a turmoil, America's economy does not look good, home owners in Vancouver desperately trying to sell there over-valued homes to save what ever equity they have left, interest rates rising, not every one in Vancouver purchased there home for cash, most hold mortgages, and yet Vancouverites believe there is an invisible shield protecting them with the attitude this cant happen to us we are safe in Vancouver, they could not be so wrong, home prices will collapse, how many times have I seen this already, London, San Francisco, Paris, Hong Kong, home owners in these areas trying to sell there homes, it is amazing how many homes are for sale in France, Vancouver, California, England, and Hong Kong, all trying to save there equity, every day from Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, London, Malta, Cypress, Greece, nothing from Australia yet, I am being offered Mansions, Castles, Waterfront homes in such places a St, Tropez, Cannes, even Hawaii, even converted Churches, people trying to sell to put there money in a more considered safe investment, so read the writing on the wall and understand what it means.

Feeling stupid

One of the most galling things I remember about a person I was in a relationship with, is that I was supplying his free internet for ages which he was using to text other women while he was sitting right beside me, claiming that it was work.

Crazy dreams

I’m battling severe insomnia lately when I’m frequently awake for the entire night. When I finally fall asleep I’ve been having really crazy dreams and / or nightmares. Yesterday I woke up completely terrified from a nightmare, and just now I woke up laughing my head off. I dreamed I was running through some dirt roads and down steep hills wearing high heeled shoes that were two different sizes, an expensive business suit with a tight skirt, and I was late to go on a road trip with a much younger former coworker who was pregnant but hadn’t told anyone yet. The real kicker was that I had just come back from the hairdresser where I had gotten my luxurious long hair (in real life) cut into a mohawk. Oh yeah and I was struggling to carry a bunch of recycling stuff in a bag because I couldn’t find anywhere to properly dispose of it. I may actually be completely losing my mind at this point but at least it’s entertaining!

Two Cents

Good looking women that complain about dating are too picky in my opinion. They have too many options. Dating for good looking women is easy. Put up a profile pic and get 100's of messages and then pick the best looking guy. He pays for the date and you find something wrong with him and update your picture and get another 100 messages and start all over. If a woman is good looking and not completely crazy she should have no trouble dating in the Lower Mainland.


It's not so much that I want you to love me. It's that I want someone to prove that I'm worthy of love.

Anterior Pelvic Tilt

There's a wonderful young woman at work with anterior pelvic tilt. Every time I see her, I want to kiss her bottom.

OK rude gym patrons

I’ve tried being patient, polite, even altering my routine so I don’t have to be in your vicinity. No more. You wanna be a selfish prick, I’m gonna be in your face now! You’ve been warned.

South park

The show still occasionally packs a kick. I thought that the PC babies skit was hilarious. My girlfriend did not laugh. Mars and Venus strikes again.

I’m just waiting for the year to end

This hasn’t been a good year for me. My parents are getting old, my brother is getting divorced, my wife lost her job, I’ve had to fight tooth and nail for recognition at work, nights out have gone sideways, attending events have been disappointing, side hustles have been too much stress and not worth the money they bring in, I can go on. There’s been only small fragments of joy this year: a few days of vacation, seeing something new, learning at a workshop or two. Pretty much everything has been uphill and unsatisfying when I’ve reached the summit. I just want this year to end and I want to clear this feeling of disappointment and start 2019, leaving this behind me once and for all. I’m exhausted from putting in so much effort for so little gain, all year.

Thank You for the Gentle Course Correction

I was so confused by whether ours was a close friendship or the beginning of a relationship. I think you were flattered by my long looks at you - lord knows you would eat compliments three meals a day if you could. I was amazed by your stares at me. But now I think those stares were not attraction, but contemplation. You were deciding how to manage me compassionately, weren’t you? I think you sensed my confusion so you began talking about other women being hot - women who look nothing like me - and other women that you keep on the line, including an old flame that you call up from time to time. I’m sorry it took me so long but I got it now, pal. Give me some time to focus on your negatives and the attraction will wear off for me. And then we can settle into being friends.

No thanks, no way, no how

I’m not interested in going to my upcoming staff Xmas party for a number of reasons. It’s on a night where I have to get up bright and early for a shift the next morning. Also, I deal enough with idiots at work and to have to see more of them past work hours sounds sickening. And I hate drinking so it won’t be fun to watch them all get drunk. It’s a lame excuse for employees,managers and supervisors to get completely wasted and gossip about other people. I’m capable of being relatively happy on my own, so I’m just going to embrace the solitude by enjoying a nice quiet evening at home.
