My Parents Did It And We Turned Out Fine

I enjoy stories from parents and grandparents about various things they did in the past. Much of the fun comes from threads that always include the phrase “but my parents did it and we turned out fine.” We’ve forgotten that many of the rules today are because of deaths in the past. Helmets, seat-belts, and…

Back In My Day

I will be fifty this year. Officially I am ancient. I must be old because I don’t understand anything. These millennials, always complaining about money, wah wah. Why would you pay money for a tattoo if you’re so broke? What’s with the expensive diets and grocery delivery? Hello Fresh? Hello bankruptcy. What’s with the jewelry,…

Fuck Tim Hortons?

Welcome to Ontario. Since the beginning of this year I’m supposed to boycott both Giant Tiger and Tim Horton’s. Giant Tiger for laying off a portion of their staff and Tim Horton’s for cutting perks and benefits. I’m not one for calling for a boycott of any business at any time. It’s stupid actually, the…

Writer’s Block And The Pits Of Hell

You may hate me by the end of this post. Unfortunately, my sanity depends on my writing this, so you’ll have to voice your displeasure in my comment box… and you will, and I’m scared. I haven’t written in a few weeks and we can blame #MeToo. I don’t have the stomach for watching the…

Men Buying Tampons

Look at em all, they’re everywhere. Men with confused looks upon their faces. Here are four reasons you should never send a man to buy tampons: 1. It probably makes him uncomfortable. Well, unless he’s my kid, then he will juggle them in the store. 2. He doesn’t care about your stupid, bleeding vagina. Your…

Four Reasons I Screamed At Your Child

I am a reasonably patient person, I once waited at the Walmart deli counter for 25 minutes so I could save fifty cents. I went there for turkey, I was getting turkey. Children test my patience, frequently. They do not give one shit. Worse, since the little brats aren’t mine, I can’t take away one…

Really, Do I Hate Women?

Someone said that I hated women the other day. It’s actually quite shocking to see your name next to those words. I like women, I’ll tell a total stranger that she looks pretty or I love her hair, whatever, some bullshit, just go away. Really, do I hate women? Does it bother me when women…

Your Blog Income Report Is Bullsh*t

Frankly, I’m sick of reading them. Here is a quick synopsis of what I see when you post your blog income reports. Your bullshit income: Siteground: Siteground is incredible because I can sucker losers into signing up and I get referral credits (not actual money, just credits.) Design services: I can help you design your…

The Ghost In My Kitchen

So, I finally super cleaned my house! Not because of something I read on Pinterest, but because you sometimes have to do that. The happiness was short lived, I woke something up. There I was, all giggling away, I walked into the kitchen and it felt like a cloak of death surrounded me. There was…
