My dog has arthritis and can't walk more than a block (slowly) before she starts to limp. Rather than forcing here to have a life stuck in my living room I bought a pet stroller so I can take her with me around the city on long walks. She loves it. However, every single day I get eye rolls from multiple people. I wonder if they would still be so judgmental if they knew about her condition.
Currently there’s a CBC documentary on three restaurant dishwashers in Montreal. I have so much respect for these dishwashers because they put in a real, honest day’s work. They’re not looking down staring at their smartphones. They’re not frauds and pretending to be something they’re not. They don’t talk their way out of work and they don’t use talk as a smokescreen to hide failures and shortcomings. They don’t brown-nose to elevate their status. They’re simply busting their ass, soaked in sweat, getting their job done and being part of a successful team. In my office, apparently you can fuck up, not do your job, and continue to get paid handsomely, month after month. I have more respect for the “dish pigs” (name of the documentary) than the so-called “office professionals” that I have to work with.
I have decided to pursue a career in music at the age of 35.
I wish my stalker was dead. Doesn't really matter how, but just dead. Even a long drawn out cancer will suffice at this point, but any way that can reach this goal will do. I read that confession about how they found out someone from their past died, and I have to admit, I really hope that it's them. Aw is that too mean for some of you? Truth is, if he was dead, it would be a safer place for women and girls. If he wants to be a gentleman, he would just do it himself...the only way he can redeem himself to society.
That democracy in Hong Kong wins. It seriously sucks to have pro-communists protesting in the streets of Vancouver against democracy. That's the last I want to see that. Yay Hong Kong democratic souls! I love you!
banning the wearing of religious symbols by people working in the public sector. Isn't wearing a suit and tie a religious symbol of the Church of $$ ? ................................................. "Why can't we all just get along?"
The people in the apartment above me are away for a few days. They are decent neighbours but obviously there is a fair bit of noise in terms of footsteps, cookings, talking, entertainment, etc. You know...normal neighbour noise. Since they have been gone I feel so calm and peaceful. I had no idea what that constant stream of overhead noise was doing to me. Now it's like I am at one with the universe. Is that really all it takes? Wow...how can I afford to live somewhere without people above me? This is amazing!
Be bad for your lungs.
Wow, who saw that coming?
Just because I'm an overweight, single, middle-aged woman with feminist/humanist ideals doesn't make me a lesbian. I don't understand why I get mislabelled so frequently. So, what - if I'm not attached to a man by a certain age, I must be gay? What if I'm divorced? Widowed? Is it my weight? I consider myself an LGBTTQ ally so it's less about the 'lesbian' aspect and more about the assumptions people make, with little or no thought or evidence, that annoys me.
Working at the Pot Shop was a lot more fun than the new job.
