In The Middle Of A Life

Oh, hi. It’s been a while, huh? I’ve been thinking off and on of this little part of t’internet for a while, but a couple things have made me want to post recently. First, my friend Julie has said, almost every time she sees me, “I miss your blog.” And it is Julie’s birthday, and […]

Glimmer

I have to say, if I deserve the friends I have, I am a stellar example of humanity. Thank you all for your kind words and your even kinder actions. I’m being employed this week deep-cleaning a friend’s house, and if the weather ever lets up, his garden. I’ve been beer-tasting and dinner-making and every […]

Bummer

It’s not just the blog. Everything in my life is slipping. Warning: This is not going to be a happy post. I need employment. I’m tired of waiting for my friend Cam to get his stuff together so that I can go jockey for him. In the meantime, there’s nothing else that will let me […]

Saturday Night in Paris (Digestif)

We stood out in the balmy evening air for a while, looking for cabs. “Buttresses! Get Liz!” someone called; I’d disclosed my flying buttress fetish while trying to get the perfect Notre Dame buttress shot earlier. Sadly, it was too dark to get the right shot. I don’t think I will photograph every French flying […]

Saturday Night In Paris (Dinner)

The entire night was too much, in so many ways. You know when you think you have a handle on a new place, and then everything goes sideways? Sometimes several ways? That was me. We hung out at the Eiffel Tour for a while (you have to, really, don’t you?) and between the sun, sweat, […]

Mortality II: Life’s Too Short.

Derek K Miller died yesterday. His last post is a lesson on how to live life and how to accept that life ends. I was not a friend of Derek’s; more an admirer. He spearheaded the hilarious 432 newspaper at UBC in the mid-nineties. He played in bands I went to see in tiny venues […]

Mortality.

Eric and I spent a lot of the day in Emergency today. When he woke this morning, he commented about a little twinge in his chest that had mostly gone before he went to work. He was back a little after noon because he was too dizzy to climb ladders. Off to the walk-in clinic, […]

Saturday in Paris 9:45 to approx. 3PM

Apparently I forgot I had a blog. Well. I didn’t. I can’t even claim to be busy. I’ve been hitting ‘refresh’ on Craigslist jobs. Now that I’ve had fun in Paris, I’m going to have to pay for it. You know how they say you should take half the stuff and twice the money when […]

Day 3 Evening

Three of us had planned to meet for dinner on Friday night. I’d met one of the women before, but it was three years ago. If I recall rightly, we shared a dessert. The other one, I only knew from t’internet. That didn’t stop us from having one of the most memorable dinners I’ve had […]

Day 4: Before 10 AM

Apparently my body will not process jet lag normally. I woke early on Saturday, despite the alcohol fuelled evening with Rebecca and Rhian the night before. More on that epic meeting of minds later. Also, giant centaur testicles. Because what goes with fine dining like those? Jet lag confused eqrly mornings, that’s what! I started […]
