I’m listening to an NPR health podcast, and it just mentioned that some lots of Similac baby formula have been recalled because of insects and larvae found in it.
This reminded me of when my son was in the fourth grade at Connaught Public School. He also attended the school’s After-Four program every day.
One evening [...]
As soon as I heard that three prostitution-related laws had been struck down in Ontario Superior Court yesterday, I knew the federal Conservatives would appeal. Why? Because that’s what they do. They stick their indignant little noses into anything that offends their ideological non-sensibilities, whether it has anything to do with them or not. As [...]
I hate my cell phone. I hate it so much I don’t even carry it with me. I can’t even remember my own phone number.
I have a pay-as-you-go plan with Virgin Mobile, which costs me the minimum $16 a month even though I only use about 5 minutes in an average month.
Remember when I blogged about the girl with no arms who beat me in a hand-writing contest at the Carp Fair, way back when I was in grade 5?
When we were at the West End Studio Tour, we saw a woman with no arms. “Look,” I said, nudging GC, “There’s MB, the girl [...]
Yesterday morning GC and I went to Alison Gresik’s Creativity Bee at Raw Sugar. It was her birthday and this was how she wanted to celebrate it. She even provided cupcakes. So I brought my laptop and hammered out some ideas for this year’s National Novel-Writing Month, and GC brought his art journal and markers. [...]
See what some women wear when “it has to be special because it’s the most important day of my life!” I gathered these pictures from various sources around the internet, including Odd Stuff Magazine and Tacky Weddings.
1. For the woman who always dreamed of wearing a peacock costume on her wedding day.
2. For the [...]
It looks like I’m going to keep all three of my baby lovebirds: Piccolo, Banjo and Oboe. They’re quite attached to each other now, and to me. And I’m pretty attached to them too: they’re my flock.
I spend at least an hour in their room each day, reading, while they chew on [...]
Saturday I went out for breakfast at Summerhayes with some of the local bloggers. I finally got to meet Finola and Trashy. Two of the bloggers at breakfast are running for office in the upcoming municipal elections – Julia Ringma for City Councillor in College Ward, and Trashy for school board in Alta Vista. [...]
These three images, from left to right, are a photograph of a woman now, a projection of how she could look in 10 years if she exercises, and a projection of how she could look in 10 years if she doesn’t exercise. Apparently these images are supposed to help motivate her to exercise.
I stared [...]
The Great Canadian Theatre Company (GCTC) invited GC and me to another opening last week. The List is a one-woman play, about 75 minutes in length, about two mothers who are neighbours in a rural community. One of them is dead.
“I didn’t lay a finger on her,” the first woman says. Nor did she lift [...]
