A thirty- five six year old non-female Canadian with a passion for pretty things, comic books and pop culture. Tries to be funny sometimes.

I’m a hopeless romantic. I love movies about relationships and personal connections.

I’m not incapable of being handy, but I usually can’t be bothered to be.

I leave a lot of personal facts about myself private, because, well, Google. But sometimes I give you hints.

I’m a total nerd but I sometimes hide that fact because I’m embarrassed by it.

My list of partners of the physical variety is reeeeally short.

One of my greatest flaws is an inability to make hard life decisions. I second guess everything.

When I was a kid watching Tim Burton’s Batman, I was always confused when Jack said, “This town needs an enema!”. Because I didn’t know what an enema was. I thought maybe he was just saying “enemy” in some flashy way.

True story.

I don’t enjoy drinking out of cans.  Beer.  Pop.  Condensed milk.  Doesn’t matter.  It doesn’t taste as good when it’s from a can.
It’s good to be honest.  It’s good to have someone you can talk to about things.  But some things I keep to myself.  They’re just for me.
Actually, I wasn’t Kung Fu fighting.
My first car was an ‘88 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.  Nary a car existed that drank more gasoline than Red October.
I really like Thai food.  In truth, in the last few years, I’ve acquired a taste for a lot of foods I would have run screaming from in the past (which I largely attribute to my exposure while working in Toronto [pictured above] for a few years)
I am, and will always be, Team Betty.
I have Type II Diabetes.  I think it’s pretty much under control, but I do a piss poor job of staying on top of it these days.  And I should lose some weight.
I’m the newly elected President of the Social Club at work.  I intend to rule with an iron fist.
Winter is bullshit.
I’ve developed a serious crush on Deb Morgan.
Anniversaries are hard.  They turn your mind towards reflection.  It can dig up painful memories or make you long for the good ones which now exist only in the past.

I eat my hamburger and my french fries at the same time.

AT THE SAME TIME!

Truthful Tuesday

  • I sometimes feel like the Martin Blank of Tumblr.
  • Today I made a snowman which may be the first time since I was a child.
  • I think half the reason I want to see the new Mission Impossible movie is I fucking love Won’t Back Down by Eminem and Pink that’s featured in the trailer.
  • I’m currently listening to The Black Keys because Laura is awesome.
  • Cinivia can go fuck itself in it’s digital asshole.
  • Before this night is through, imma gonna eat some apple pie and vanilla ice cream frozen yogurt.
  • My holidays are from Dec. 22nd until Jan. 2nd, but I have to go into work tomorrow because [redacted].
  • Having a birthday in the Christmas season tends to blow.  However, it seems to have worked in my favour this year, since I didn’t really get anything for Christmas.  (Not that’s it’s about stuff, but dammit, I hardly ever spend money on myself throughout the year and kinda have always looked forward to December to get my hook up for the year, y’know?)
  • Remember 5 months ago when I posted this?  I’m still only halfway through the first book.  And I like it.  I just don’t like reading unless I know I’ll have at least an unfettered hour.  I never have an unfettered hour.
  • Having just gone through my archives looking for that post, I am further reminded that I’ve pretty much packed back on all the weight I lost at the start of the year.  Pretty stoked about that.  Kept it off for about 6 months.  It was a good 6 months.
  • I need to start eating healthier again.  The last couple months (and weeks) have been terrible.  More fruits and vegetables needed.
  • Oh right!  Apple pie!

I don’t know…

…how to feel.

…where to go.

…why I care.

…who’s to blame.

…what to do.

…when I will.

Ten Things

  1. I have a terrible memory.
  2. I wasn’t “tagged” to post ten things.  This doesn’t surprise me, so it doesn’t upset me.
  3. Quiet.  That’s the word I most often hear people ascribe to me.
  4. I’ve always been fascinated by heroes.  Superheroes.  Action heroes.  Knights.  I’ve always been drawn to the “do-gooder”.  The moral compass.  The honourable man.  It has had a profound effect on some of my life decisions.
  5. My parents divorced when I was 5.  For the most part, I saw my Dad once a week.  We have a friendly relationship, but we’re not close.
  6. I am apathetic by nature.  I find it difficult to muster the energy to care about a lot of things.  As a result, in addition to “quiet”, I’m often viewed and calm and laid-back.  Lately I’ve come to care about a couple things very strongly.  I’ve started to feel like I’m having panic attacks as a result.
  7. I suck at math.
  8. I think marihuana should probably be legalized.  I’ve never smoked it myself, nor do I have any strong desire to.
  9. I’ve always developed quicker and stronger relationships with women than I have with men. 
  10. I’m funnier in print.
  11. I have a terrible memory.

I took advantage of the advance polls to vote in the Canadian election this past weekend. Two days prior I had narrowed it down to two parties. The day before, I decided on and voted for a third. I shocked myself.

I’ve seen dead people.

I think Tim McGraw is a douchebag.

I’ve never awoken in the morning being unable to recall what happened the night before.

I’m partial to redheaded girls. And blondes. And brunettes. And punk girls with unnaturally coloured hair. Or bald girls.

I don’t believe in magic. Or ghosts.

I think I could succeed as a writer, but it’s difficult to find the time, energy or drive to write. Or read for that matter.

Trying to let go of something I want so very badly is really hard.

I hate writing posts on my phone.
