Laneway House

When I first got to East Van in the 90s, all I ever wanted was to live in a garage with a futon, hotplate and toaster oven and make it my studio.

My adopted cat

My cats name is Kitteh. Its the one name you can say and she runs to us like a dog! She is adopted. The crackhouse across the street got busted last fall... and outside our apartment this little kitty stood on her back legs to reach up for a pet.. everyday.. she was there. I assumed she was a friendly kitty owned obviously.. what a personality. SO LOVING. So im on the bottom floor of apartment.. big groundlevel window with bars. We leave out a bowl of water on the patio and watch . .. she drinks it all.. Odd. Everyday we leave water and we decide to get food. She is so beautiful and petite and very young.. Underweight and hair not so big and sexy. I have the best little buddy.. we have the best little buddy. The apartment mananger even said everyone loves the cat .. we all know how it was abandoned.. and how loving she is. People call her the guardian because she sits and waits and greets people at the front door by just simply being. What a joy.

Busybodies

Got a complaint call from building management that I wasn't breaking any rules but to make me aware some behavior of mine bothered someone. How is it my problem if they are bothered and I'm not breaking any rules? Go talk to a shrink about it. Who is this anonymous coward using official channels to vent on their pet peeves? It's never just one issue. Every time you appease them on one thing just to 'keep the peace' they come up with something else. I am so sick of these passive-aggressive jerks trying to run everyone else's private life.

Help

Guys always smile and me in the elevator lobby or on the elevator. I know a smile doesn't always mean they like like me but they could. I was out with 6 of my friends and guys were always looking in our direction but the only guys that came up to us were players and creepers. The other guys just never came up to us and they are so our type. I wonder if I should do more. Its not fair for guys to have to do all the work. I don't want to seem like I am desperate because I am not but I could start a conversation. Guys please if your single and a girl smiles at you we do it for a reason and want you to come over.

Classy

My SO's father took them to that fancy sushi place for movie stars on their birthday without me.

PLUR

More deaths at the summer electronic music festivals, sure am glad I grew up (and always behaved like I had there).

Justice

It is always an eye opener to see that some people are still making opinion posts and comments on various crimes and advocating jail time for the person who commits that crime. Sometimes people are saying that a person who was given such and such an amount of prison time should get more. From personal experience in the criminal justice system let me tell you that not everything is as it seems. For one thing it is a lot more expensive to put someone behind bars than most people realize with some estimates of 100,00 per year Cdn or more. Many crimes are committed while high or drunk or in the passion of the moment. There is no deterring these crimes by setting an example. What about gang crimes? Through bargaining with prosecutors most times no one or one person does a sentence while everyone else in the gang lives their lives. And continues to do crime. The Canadian public has no idea and are unwilling to face the truth about our justice system and who it punishes and how. They would rather just say off and on "oh that person should have... gotten more time etc." which does not good at all. Alleviating poverty in Canada would be a good start on reducing the number of people being dealt with by the criminal justice system.

I don’t get it

Why does love make you feel physically ill? I ran into someone that I used to be with, and now am not; seeing him felt like I being punched in the stomach, and ever since I’ve felt like throwing up. Such a strong reaction. So weird.

What the F is wrong with people

I guess this is our new norm smoke filled sky's for the better part of the summer. As a long time resident of the south coast a place I intend to spend the rest of my days I'd like to ask all the people of the province and those that visit to please obey the fire bans and be very care full when smoking. And moving forward I thing the government should have some new laws regarding the penalties for those who start forest fires due to there negligence. I say Jail time is the only solution if you start a fire that cause damage to peoples property or causes people to be displaced from there homes or effects peoples lively hood you should spend the next FIVE fire seasons in jail I really think this would make people think twice about what they are doing before they do something that might make them miss five summers. This is my take on the issue like it or not I don't give a F

The Economist ratings: Suck it Vancouver haters

In the latest world ratings for most livable cities, Calgary placed fourth, Vancouver was sixth, and Toronto ranked seventh. Every year, the research and analysis arm of the London-based publisher of the Economist magazine ranks 140 cities and scores them based on 30 different factors, boiled down to five categories: Stability (based on local rates of crime, terrorism and military unrest). Quality of local health care. Local culture and environment (everything from weather to quality of local restaurants). Quality of education. Quality of infrastructure (everything from transit to electrical grids and telecommunications networks). Vancouver scored a 95 in stability and a 92.9 in infrastructure, with a perfect score in the rest. Other noted cities and their rankings include: Paris: 19th, Hong Kong: 35th, London: 48th, and New York: 57th.

So

I'm reading "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" Mark Twain uses the "N" word throughout this absolute masterpiece of a book . What do I do? Order the removal from Libraries, order a revision? Take down statues of Samuel Clemens or rename Mark Twain National Forest? History is history and change comes from the markers it has left, there's no point in vilifying individuals from the past to make a statement today. Here's a quote from Aldous Huxley The charm of history and its enigmatic lesson consist in the fact that, from age to age, nothing changes and yet everything is completely different. In the personages of other times and alien creatures we recognize our all too human selves and yet are aware, as we do so, that the frame of reference within which we do our living has changed, since their day, out of all recognition, that propositions which seemed axiomatic then are now untenable and that what we regard as the most self-evident postulates could not, at an earlier period, find entrance into even the most boldly speculative mind. But however great, however important for thought and technology, for social organization and behavior, the differences between then and now are always peripheral. At the centre remains a fundamental identity. In so far as they are incarnated minds, subject to physical decay and death, capable of pain and pleasure, driven by craving and abhorrence and oscillating between the desire for self-assertion and the desire for self-transcendence, human beings are faced, at every time and place, with the same problems, are confronted by the same temptations and are permitted by the Order of Things to make the same choice between unregeneracy and enlightenment. The context changes, but the gist and the meaning are invariable.

The thing is...

...I don't believe you are any of the things your mom has told you you are. Obviously, you believe everything she says, but one day, you will realize she is a narcissist and she says these things to hold you back and hold you down. You and your sibling are not what she says you are. Step back from her. See things for yourself. Be your own person and who you want to be. Please.

Best sex of my life

I have been married for a long time and the sex is getting better and better,Thanks to my little affair and all the men we have slept with.

so much bs

In a moment of clarity before I revert back to love-struck moron I just want to say: you're a jerk. Women can be jerks too, and you are DEFINITELY a jerk. I don't even believe you leave these breadcrumbs to keep me on the bench as backup. I think you're just twisted and insecure. But I'm sure I'll be back to idiot within hours so congrats I guess.

Smoke break

I'm done with you smokers and the constant breaks. What gives you the right to drop everything you're doing and go outside? Because you're a smoker? So what? Why can't you have a smoke on your lunch break and designated coffee breaks? You really have no other excuse than "I want to". Well fine then, each time you go for a smoke I'm taking a break for 5 min right after.

I SAW YOU
