Since I buy used cars, I'm always several years, even a decade, behind the times. I used to rent cars occasionally when I visited my sister in Alberta, and the cars were like my own back home, except shinier and cleaner.

Yes, that's an actual desk just behind.
But as soon as it came in, it got occupied. Though I suppose putting a… Read full post »
Talk about no escape, being shot like fish in a barrel, implacable enemy... Talk about death raining down on them, being thrown out of their homes, being robbed of their livelihood, their homes and then their very lives.
Yes, the Palestinians.
By people who suffered similarly...but in magnit… Read full post »
I have furniture!
I had to go out and buy some for my new place because I'm not shipping any from the old place. Well, actually, I have none to ship. All I had, basically, was bookshelves and file cabinets. Many file cabinets. My handyman took them all. He's going… Read full post »
I don't want to be here any more.
I'm not talking about OS. Tho I COULD feel that way, what with all the stupididdity and awfoolness and toxic bile spills going on.
Nor about being on the planet – I'm still into hanging in, hanging on, hanging around despite all the… Read full post »
I'd put out info on Pagan lists, hoping that someone out there would buy my place, and take care of its *sacred sites* and all. I'd just about given up and was ready to sell to a cowan/muggle. A farewell afternoon was arranged and invitations sent out… Read full post »
So, since the tenant on one side of my new (new-to-me) duplex decamped before vacate date, I went to Hope to get some stuff done.

So said the steward on our flight in his we're-about-to-land blurb. Also: “Your luggage should be available within two to three working days. Oh sorry, I was thinking of [rival airline].”
Note – those were jokes. Apparently it's kind of a fad at the moment for air… Read full post »

...that I didn't go to. My friend K had suggested we go some time back. But we met up at the dump (local meeting place around here) on the morning of the day of the event and she said, “So, are we still on?” And I said, “I… Read full post »
Like, who wants a house full of brittle clay tablets - so messy to make, all that wet clay, and then a nuisance later trying to read in bed. By oil lamp. And they take up so much room... Time to move on to new technology.
Well, Gutenberg, thanks for your… Read full post »
I kept hearing odd little fraction-of-an-instant noises in my motel room. Often sounded like a voice, but it was too brief to be sure, let alone make out any words.
Was my motel room haunted? Was it built on a Native burial ground? (Who am I kidding - all of the… Read full post »
"I wish," said my son-in-law, "that I could get a taste-bud transplant so I could eat like other people."
We were in an Indian restaurant, where he ordered vegetarian kofti balls, with a bland sauce, but even that was unpleasant for him. I enjoyed all the food we ordered, except that… Read full post »
So for a few days I'm in the little town of Hope B.C., where I'm thinking of moving to. Small, but it has three, count 'em, three sushi restaurants. (And one Indian, two Chinese, and half a dozen WASPy.)
I've tried two of the three sushi places. First one was… Read full post »
