Blink 182’s “I Miss You” works better as a country song than it does a punk one. Fight me. I still want to know what the hell a yed is, by the way. Thanks to Matt (yes, that Matt) for the video. If you haven’t, you should give his podcast a listen. It’s a good […]
Gill sent this. I think she answers her own question with her first example. If you want to fight against hate, you have to show in any way you can no matter how big or how small that there is love and good in the world. Be the sort of person that you would want […]
I wish I’d thought of this. I may have to use it some Halloween. I walked into a coffee shop on Halloween to find the woman behind the counter with a bunch of sponges pinned to her uniform. “I’m assuming this is a costume, but just what are you supposed to be?” I asked. The […]
Gill recently talked about some of the garbage birthdays she’s had. She’s now sent in a bit about a few of her better ones to balance things out. I’m glad they didn’t all suck. I wrote a few days ago of my worst birthdays, but let’s hop the bus to the positive side of town. […]
No, not me. My birthday is in December. The birthday in question is Gill’s. It happened over the weekend and she’s got a somewhat interesting take on it. Basically, 2020 is a strange time, but things have been worse. I’ve had about as many birthdays as she has, and I can’t think of one that […]
I woke up first thing this morning to a tap on my door. My plumber has a weird sense of humour.
This story happened a while ago in Dublin, and even though it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it’s true. John Bradford, a Dublin University student, was on the side of the road hitch-hiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a big storm. The night was rolling on and no car […]
I just got this from Gill. It’s funny that she happened to send it now, since I’m having my own bout of the elderlies this week. Seppa-Tebby-Tebby is in Junior Kindergarten. Seriously. I don’t know how that happened. Today is his third day. From what I hear, he seems to like it. I’m supposed to […]
It seems that Gill has been thinking about end of life planning lately. Wills, funeral arrangements and other such happiness. It also seems that her thoughts may have gotten away on her a little. Unless there’s something that only she knows, writing a will and setting money aside for a decent burial don’t mean that […]
I’m attracted to women of colour, but I can’t date them. Apparently my wife is a racist.
