Falling into Autumn

September 9, 2017

Some people revel in the change of the angle in the Sun.

I am not one.

The slanted, golden rays only remind me of hard times.

Whenver the bottom drops out, the shoe drops, it's fall.

Fall is full of falling apart, falling by the way side, falling ill.

Autumn sounds like a funeral drum…

Fear

May 12, 2017

There is a pillar of stone in the middle of a deep, gurgling swamp. On top of the pillar is a small fire, some food, a basket for collecting rain water, and a tent. The food never quite runs out, the fire never fully extinguishes. Rain always comes, eventually. Atop the pillar she watches the season…

Fuck Cancer

August 4, 2016

Hi everyone! A good news post: I beat cancer. When I had my thyroid removed last month the doctor also removed two tumors; a large benign one from the right side and a smaller, malignant one from the left. The benign tumor was huge, like 80 grams in weight. That's ridiculous and explains why my scar…

Fighting Frumpy

April 1, 2014

Generally I prefer to think of myself as casual, leaning towards business casual depending on the situation. TeeFury shirts make up a large chunk of my wardrobe, along with jeans and plain longsleeve shirts that are great for layering since Spring hasn't really gotten here yet. (I will note, however…

Jog On

March 5, 2014

This time last year we were living in a cute but tiny apartment in Colwood and I began running. At first I just jogged along until I couldn't, took a walk, then jogged some more, and so on. Then I downloaded the Couch to 5k program for my mp3 player and got serious, signing up for the Victoria Godde…

My 5 Steps to Nice Skin

March 3, 2014

Since leaving puberty far behind I've been blessed with nice skin. This is, at least in part, because of genetics. Most of the women in my family have good skin so I can only guess that's part of the reason. Here are the things I do to boost nature's gift to me:

  1. Wash with plain water. Seriously; …

Chubby Babies and Fat Kids

January 31, 2014

It never ceases to amaze me the difference in language between speaking about a fat child and a fat baby. One of my jobs is at a pet store right now (and I'll leave the hype around obesity in pets for another day) and the other job is at a well known children's clothing store. All day long I have pa…

My Little Beauty

January 10, 2014

As previously mentioned, I have very little of what people would call 'style'. I'm very much a jeans and tee shirts person. The number of pairs of shoes I own is in the low single digits. I've had the same small bag of cosmetics for a decade, and when it comes to my hair I didn't own any styling p…

November 29, 2013

Thanks to my Facebook feed I found this news story last night and am sharing it with you to raise the alarm; the Plan B or Morning After Pill, an emergency contraceptive available over the counter at the pharmacy here in Canada, and in many other places like the USA and Europe, is COMPLETELY INEFFEC…

Walking In The World

November 20, 2013

Taking a walk is our oldest mode of transportation and despite all of the advances in technology Wet baby footprints on pavementsince we first figured out how to do it it doesn't look like the walk is going anywhere any time soon. Many people use walking as a form of exercise, as activism, competition, or just to clear their head…
