OMG, Neil, How Could You Do Such A Thing?

It's been awhile since I've written about anything related to relationships and/or the memories thereof. So, I thought perhaps I'd bring up that topic again. I had a few ideas over the weekend, of particular memories to tell you all... but, alas, I was negligent in writing them down and I have since forgotten. Geez,… Continue reading OMG, Neil, How Could You Do Such A Thing?

Badass Flight Nurse, Viking, or Whatever

As I sit on this old couch, in front of a fire that is dying despite my best efforts to build the biggest, warmest fire ever, and as I sip my hot chocolate in an effort to stay warmer still... My heater died a couple of days ago, the day before a snow storm here… Continue reading Badass Flight Nurse, Viking, or Whatever

A Twinge of Betrayal

Had a revelation today. A potentially awful revelation. Dane and David are back in contact, via Facebook, if nothing else. I don't know how long they've been in touch. As far as I can tell it'll have been less than a few months since they reconnected on FB... but I don't really know. I sent… Continue reading A Twinge of Betrayal

Obligatory New Year’s Post

Oh geez, it's past 11 PM on New Year's day and I still haven't written my obligatory New Year's post... How are you all supposed to know what my resolutions are, or how great or terrible 2017 was, or what my sights for 2018 are if I don't write a blog post about it?! First… Continue reading Obligatory New Year’s Post

Russian Tea

A friend of mine gave me a jar of Russian Tea mix along with a jar of hot cocoa and a bag of homemade marshmallows for Christmas. I made myself a cup of the Russian Tea today and it occurred to me that the last time I had any was when I was 16 or… Continue reading Russian Tea

Things to do besides sleep and veg

Where to start? I feel busy AF right now... I suppose if you consider the laying around in my recliner and sleeping in I've done the past few days I technically can't say I ACTUALLY AM busy... but ya know... Whatevs. Regardless, a fair bit has been going on - leading again to my inconsistent… Continue reading Things to do besides sleep and veg

This Too Shall Pass – Like a Kidney Stone

I feel like a whiner. I don't like being sick, I don't like feeling like I shouldn't feel as bad as I do... But I do. I think I told you all about my kidney stone, right? Almost three weeks ago now I was in the emergency room getting diagnosed for the first time with… Continue reading This Too Shall Pass – Like a Kidney Stone

Sunday Night Blues

I read some advice recently; somewhere in the vast expanse of the web, that said something to the effect of "Don't settle for a job that gives you the Sunday night blues." Those of you that may work seven days a week and think to yourself "What does Sunday night have to do with anything?"… Continue reading Sunday Night Blues

15 days

I posted my last post 15 days ago, so wordpress tells me. I feel like such a bum. My desire to write and keep up with my blog has been thwarted by schedule and obligation. I have nothing better to describe to you today than what the heck has been going on to keep me… Continue reading 15 days

Throwback Thursday: Remembering the ’90s

So I came across this post by The Emma Edit today... and I thought "Hey, it's a Thursday... and, MAN, do I love the '90s..." SO, here I am to answer the same questions from her part one and two on this topic. I know you're excited. You're hiding it well... but I can tell.… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Remembering the ’90s

“That was NOT OKAY! NOT. OKAY!!”

Well, since my emergency post from last time seems to be a success, I decided I'd tell you about another emergency I had to deal with once. Not life threatening, thank goodness... But it was adrenaline inducing nonetheless for me. I am fairly certain I haven't written about it here before. Many, many moons ago… Continue reading “That was NOT OKAY! NOT. OKAY!!”

Omnilinguism Goals

A year and a half ago I submitted my answers for our St John Cadets end of year yearbook - the "fun" question that year was what superpower I'd want to have... I answered I'd want to be Omnilinguistic - otherwise the power to know all languages. One of my teen boys decided he liked… Continue reading Omnilinguism Goals

MIA, Medication, and Making Money!

Gosh, I feel like I've been MIA again... I suppose I have been, particularly given that my kids have been ill since Friday. They've been in high enough spirits and feeling over all well enough... But they are contagious and not allowed to go to school until we can procure the medication - which has… Continue reading MIA, Medication, and Making Money!

Calling on Vlad

I knocked on the door, a little apprehensive as I had never been to Vladimir's house. I was apprehensive mostly because I had a bit of a crush on him and we had never really worked closely for school projects before. He, along with most of the 5 other dudes in our class, tended to… Continue reading Calling on Vlad

The Grand Scheme of Things

In a few weeks I turn 34. Logically I know that is not all that old.... But maybe it's Karma because I called Justin "old" when he turned 34 yesterday - same as Dane when he turned 34 in October. But now... Siiiiggghhh... I'm starting to feel old myself. Really, it's not so much a… Continue reading The Grand Scheme of Things

Scary eyes

Now - back to some more regular programming. LOL as in - not just a whole bunch of pictures. Back to old themes and old memories - or in this case memories forgotten. In my first Treasures post, I mentioned a journal entry in one of the journals I shared with Anneke. It was a… Continue reading Scary eyes

Treasures; or a second Christmas

I received my storage delivery yesterday as you will have noticed from my gleeful outburst last night. I have taken mondo amounts of pictures to share with you all so I think I'm going to have to break it into at least two posts. Today I will start with stuff to do with friends/me as… Continue reading Treasures; or a second Christmas

I know I can make it through

Whatever it takes, I know I can make it through - I'd wager at least anyone much older than me probably won't get that reference. Hell half of you my age will likely not know it, unless you have teenage kids. Perhaps you'd recall the old school version: There's a way, if I look then… Continue reading I know I can make it through

Resisting the Urge to Apologise

Yesterday morning I got a facebook memory notification that brought up a status in which Wyatt had commented when we were briefly in touch again 6 years ago. Fuck, but I hate memory notifications sometimes. I let my curiosity get the best of me, and I tapped his name so his profile popped up. I… Continue reading Resisting the Urge to Apologise

I Don’t Know! I Was Pissed At You!

Maja is the only person I have actually threatened with a blog post, and actually followed through with it... I often say to my friends "Don't make me write a blog post about you!" or "This is SO going on my blog!" ...But usually, it's an empty threat; an attempt at humour, except when it… Continue reading I Don’t Know!
