Worst. Blogger. ever.

That is me!

hmm OK so what's new in like a dog's age?

Well it is coming up on "Winter" here in Toronto:

Anyone dreaming of a White Christmas better keep dreaming.
Although I guess anything is possible.

What else?
Oh well THIS happened:

I missed that last stair and went RIGHT down.  Twisty McTwisterson.  Went to the walk-in clinic and the doc said it was not broken.  I never did get that x-ray though, and I am still limping about a tad.  Perhaps I see some physio in my future!

Corey has been hard at work on his ART as there is a shindig this Sunday at the SUPERJET:

Should be fun.  Last year was pretty epic.  We have Michael Coughlan coming in to head up the MUSIC.

And I will be making SNICKY SNACKS a-plenty!

Hmm what else?  OH YEAH, that thing I did.

Week 1

Week 2


Week 3 (today!!!)

Dear Conservative Party,

What part of "no flyers" do you not understand?

No worries though, i found a use for it.

Heave Steve

Stepped off my porch this morning to head off to work and noticed a large fishbowl-like container full of FREE BUTTONS.  Upon getting a closer look I realized "YES I want one of them buttons".

Moral of the story?  My neighbors rule.

HEAVE STEVE, people.

Today was one for the history books, 'round the workplace.

My dear friend Joel has left the building.... literally.  he is moving on to bigger and better things and I am VERY excited and proud of him.

It leaves me in the dust though- one more person I am used to seeing DAILY who has flown the coop.

Joel and I worked together for 7 years.  
We're both turning 37 next month.  
That means that we have been 9-5 comrades for 18.92% of our LIVES (who's counting?)

I first introduced this blog's 1.5 readers to Joel back when it began. 
We were freshly 30 years old and looking like this:

We've grown up a lot since then........... riiiight?

Does my head look creepily Photoshopped onto the second image?

For Joel's final send-off we got some friends together last night.Co-workers from the past and present showed up for some fun.

He came.
He saw.
He conquered.

He will be missed.

Also he's just going to a new company down the street so we can still have lunch.  And who am I kidding I will probably see him at least every week or two.

No big deal.  Just hanging out with the Hooper brothers from Grapes of Wrath.

Grapes of Wrath? More like Sangria of Wrath.  Those boys were sauced.

Thanks to my pal Michele (formerly of LAVA HAY) for the invite.

Teenage goal accomplished!

In the past few years, the noise in the building where I reside has been pretty... tolerable.  More than tolerable in fact.  C and I were just referencing this the other day.  Well I should have known it was too good to be true.  Last night was a shit show.  CONGRATULATIONS ON FAILING YOUR EXAMS, STUDENTS!

In between stints of (I'm guessing) drinking copious amounts of moonshine and dabbling in some methaqualone, they would descend into the courtyard and talk over one other for 10-15 minutes a time.  I swear to GAH it sounded like a huge pack of morons were standing in my bedroom.  Noise tends to travel through courtyards into open windows.

I woke up (one of the many times) and thought- why is C not raging? 
I peer over to his side of the bed:

Knowing it would be too cruel to peel them off his pretty head and slip onto my own, I lay there helpless.  At one point there was a guy FLIPPING OUT.  Like for reals LOSING HIS SHIT (must be the ludes?):
 "I wanna go home. *INAUDIBLE, INCOHERENT NOISE* Yaaaaaaar" 

Then I HEAR SOMETHING BREAK WITHIN THE BUILDING.  I am now willing the police to come.  Or the superintendent to wake up.   
ANY-thing to stop this fucking racket.

And then I hear it.  The pleasant sounds of radio dispatch and the voice of police people.

The noise is over, and I am finally... falling... asleep.....

and then

Moral of the story?  SEE TITLE
