Be a Good Sport (or I’m a Bad Canadian)

So, I don’t like hockey. Shhh… don’t tell anyone, or they may kick me out of the country. Or burn me alive. It’s fifty-fifty at this point. People get very passionate about [insert local sports franchise here]. They like to

Binge Watching and Spoiler Purging (or Don’t Be One of Those People)

In an age where entertainment is increasingly available on demand, the practice of binge watching has become commonplace. For those who don’t know, that’s where you catch up on back episodes of a particular show in a short amount of

The rear end of winter

So, it’s finally spring here. I can tell by how everything smells like dog shit and rotting garbage. Probably from the months of accumulated dog shit and garbage that have started to thaw. Thanks, neighbours. And that’s before the geese

Don’t Make This Year Regret The Day It Was Born (or Something Like That)

  So who decided to put the start of the day in the middle of the night? Or the start of the year in the middle of winter? Who ate all the cupcakes? Why do we care when the odometer

Nothing To See Here (or Move Along, Move Along)

So, I wish I could tell you about all the exciting things that happened to me this past week, but there aren’t any stories to tell. No rocks fell from the sky and hit me. No holes opened up in

I Redefine The Phrase Puppy Muffins (or Get Behind Me, Satan)

So, a nun cut in front of me in line at the pharmacy today. That sounds like the start of a bad joke. And I guess in a way it is. The only way it would be funnier is if

Let Me Be The First To Say Humbug (or Nine Ways To Cook Reindeer)

(Photo credit: Wikipedia) I am hiding from Christmas. So far I’ve managed not to hear any Christmas music this year, but mostly because I haven’t left the house. I used to work in retail, so I’ve gotten a lifetime dose

Somebody Disagree With Me (or Wish Me A Merry Christmas, I Dare You)

I am a complete and total failure as a blogger. Here I am, eagerly set to engage a willing audience in a lively debate, and you all have to go and agree with everything I say. Maybe I should talk

Geeks, Nerds And The Men Who Love Them (or Dealing With Nerd Shaming)

Every once in a while, within any given community, someone will do something incredibly stupid. And we will laugh at them and call them names. It makes us feel better, at least for a little while, until the next idiot
