My brother learned a lesson today
Food prep is harder and takes longer than cooking. Fifteen minutes to cut up the chicken. (Remember to marinade it in the jerk seasoning for two hours!) Fifteen minutes to cut up the vegetables (Remember to soak the skewers!) Twenty minutes to put the chicken and vegetables on the skewers Start making rice while doing this. Twenty minutes to cook. Fuck yeah you’re doing the dishes.
When I'm bored, I go on to Google Translate, type...
Surprisingly, I’m actually pretty good at saying things in Romanian, since, as far as I can tell, there isn’t any tricks in the pronunciation of their letters, unlike, say, Swedish, with their tricky extra vowels.
When I leave work at the end of August, instead of...
I’m pretty sure my message will say something like “It was so awesome working with everyone here, and I’m going to miss seeing you guys when I’m at school. I don’t know what else to say, so here’s a picture of a ____ ____ with a ______” I’ll fill in those blanks when the inspiration comes to me.
Watch me forget to go to work tomorrow
Four days off in a row, and my shift starts at five pm.
I'm officially moving out of town, to residence,...
My last day of work will be August 31st, so I can get as much pay as possible before leaving. After checking the calendar, I’ve got what I can essentially consider three full paycheques left. Things are getting more real every single day.

I like hearing birds outside. It means that...
The temperature was only 25 degree’s Celsius today, so it was the best day ever.
Matching socks is the most boring task I can think...
How is it I’ve managed to collect over thirty socks that don’t have a pair? Some of them aren’t even mine, and this concerns me.

Skip to number one. Spoiler alert, it’s Bipolar Disorder. “Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness characterized by suicidally depressive lows and irresponsibly manic highs”. It’s not when you feel sad, and then you feel happy. It’s when you feel like jumping off your balcony is the only option, and then suddenly you’re so frustrated you will throw a...
Goal for this week: do not spend any more money (on debit).

cityyandcolour: Help I’m Alive by Metric
Archer is a rather amusing show.
I know it’s by the guy who created Frisky Dingo, and thus why Archer looks pretty much exactly like Xander/Awesome X, but Gord, why haven’t I watched this show with more intent earlier?
Television is, in general, is much more...
As a side note, guess who’s drunk right now?
It’s Retro Sunday. Tumblovers, I’m getting drunk tonight.
The advice I always seem to follow most in my life...
“Every (other) time I thought something wasn’t going to end, it ended”. “Other” being in quotations because it fits more into the context of the video (someone needed help curing their hiccups). When that particular video emerged on the Tubes, I’d just started my job, and had been generously given the longest shift that I’m entitled to work (which is...
An adorable toddler sang "You Are My Sunshine" to...
Not only because she was the first well-behaved child I had seen in weeks (which is basically a gift from Gord), but You Are My Sunshine is one of my favourite songs to sing, and I was impressed that she was actually singing the verse, not just the chorus. Also, she was a curly-haired ginger in an adorable hat. A curly haired ginger baby. You would be heartless to think this baby wasn’t...
