I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

I love my brother! I don’t love my brother!

As much I was avoiding it, was forced to call bro#1. He brought me down quickly. Are we even fucking related, lol? No matter. I know the sibling-rivalry-reasons behind all this, it goes back fiftyfuckingyearsforChrissakes!! With kindred spirits sunk, and perhaps with me wanting to vent … out of the blue called bro#3. Happy, I did too. Our conversation was nothing but positive, full of laughs, and when informed of my current, albeit temporary job, “NICE!!” was his enthusiastic and supportive reply. Thanks for the love, the laughs! Yep, WE def are related, lol!!

I found bliss in ignorance

I cannot take this anymore
Saying everything I’ve said before
All these words they make no sense
Everything you say to me
And I’m about to break
I need a little room to breathe
And I’m about to break
Over and over again
Just like before

I don’t wanna be full of hate for anybody but it’s too late

it’s the reason for my pain in a season to celebrate
well I can’t love you anymore I’m scared of the sound of it
and woman I just wanted more it’s the reason why I’m here

Poutine? Dude, thought ya said poontang!

Honestly, ain’t joking! And for a second, took me smilingly back to my youth mishearing you! I agree, would be great to grab some poutine, or some poontang … or both, lol!

… legalized brothels should add this to list of services offered, catering to horny ‘n hungry Canadians, lol!!

Better Beer for a Better Life

Nothin’ like beer for a life-pick-me-up! Least something good happened today! Heard many positive things ’bout Indie Alehouse Brewing Co. and though I’m often in The Junction … I’ve never been. With today’s circumstances conspiring against me, was no way was gonna add to that dubious streak of missing out on great suds! Being the artful-parking-dodger that I am, lucked out TWICE w/the same city servant dispensing tickets like nobody’s business. “Why don’t you just pay?” she asked all upset-like, as if the money not being collected was hers, lol … before moving along looking for her next ticket tally, and more importantly … luckily letting me off scot-free w/my scofflawing ways, lol! A few pics, y’all!

Beer To Go!


Choices. Hmmm?


Me & My Growler!


Wit’ner Toque!


One Day Old Beer!


If only life was so easy, so simple? We can only hope!

I tried so hard and got so far but in the end it doesn’t even matter

I’ve put my trust in you pushed as far as I can go
For all this there’s only one thing you should know

Running; I miss YOU my friend!!

I haven’t run since December 7th. Not once! I feared it would come to this, and I did my best minimizing weeks (months?) lost by stretching it out as long as I did during these changing seasons. I refuse to run when there are so many treacherous obstacles due to our weird&wicked-winter! Sidewalks still haven’t been cleared completely along my route. Not to mention all the fallen tree debris littering said sidewalks due to the ice-storm. It’s just NOT safe!! So, for now, I’m biding my warm-sweet-ass time!

Cold temps don’t affect me. Never have, not in the least. Nor hot climes either for that matter! If luck was on my side, if we had no snow. If essentially the neighbourhood was a hard, frozen tundra, I’d be out there every single day, same as I was in the spring/summer/fall …just protectively layered up the wazoo mind you, is all! Given the hand I was dealt, will wait. Better safe than sorry …right?

For Chrissakes, have been hit by a car (twice actually) when the running was good (least, when I thought it was). And, I am careful, peering into every vehicle crossing my path, watching driver’s eyes, and if they’re not looking in my direction, watching out for me, I’m VERY careful, watching out for THEM!  Despite this, I still unashamedly stake claim to my pedestrian right of way, never missing an opportunity; wagging my finger lecturingly (yeah, made it up) as I pass by. Smarten up … pay attention! Hood surfing more than once, can attest to drivers being more freaked out than I. Doesn’t help that our faces are inches apart due to my extending as far forward as I can … think Alien w/Sigourney Weaver! Oh, and God Bless the patient, attentive drivers who when they see runners approaching the intersection we are about to share … wait till we do, AND even reverse slightly signaling they see us, and allowing safe and easy passage. I  ALWAYS wave an appreciative wave, acknowledging their kindness. Must be runners themselves, I figure, lol?!

And, no … not about to climb aboard any treadmill … ok, I REALLY REALLY have to say this … I read many running blogs/sites. Running on a treadmill IS NOT running. Don’t know what the fuck it?! Exercise, sure. Fitness, absolutely. Calories burned, ditto. Healthy, check. Do I admire your efforts? Yep, you bet! It just ain’t running, so stop sayin’ it is, lol!

Extended Polar Vortexing ain’t helping my cause either! Looks like a LONG runless (I know, I know, another one) winter!

you should know how it feels my friend

walking down this rocky road wondering where my life is leading
rolling on to the bitter end
finding out along the way what it takes to keep love living

now I’m on my feet again better things are bound to happen
all my dues surely must be paid
many miles and many tears times were hard but now they’re changing
you should know that I’m not afraid

I’m breaking free from these memories gotta let it go just let it go

Love that once hung on the wall
Used to mean something but now it means nothing

There’s only one thing left here to say
Love’s never too late

I need an answer, tell me what the hell went wrong

you said you were mine then you up and went away, I thought we were fine guess you thought differently that day
it’s no big thing really I’m doing fine by myself, it’s just that sometimes I feel like I’ve died and gone to hell
don’t like this feeling and I don’t like the state I’m in, what is the problem with my head
just a matter time till I learn to carry on, just a matter of time till I sing another song
one of these days you’ll wake up and you’ll realize, when it comes down to it babe we should have never said goodbye 
don’t like this feeling and I don’t like the state I’m in, what is the problem with my head

a baby step in the baby grand scheme of things

How many of you really understand life’s meaning and experiences? I swear not too many! I see things occur, that to me are mind-blowingly motherfucking awesome, and others don’t see a fucking thing? And when, I try explaining to them what just miraculously happened (sorry, Tiff & S for the singling out; but you guys just stood there jaws dropped clueless), they STILL don’t get/see it – a double whammy missed life-learning opportunity, lol! I think most people are oblivious because the special people giving/sending us messages/helping us to understand, aren’t the people others usually give a second thought/glance to. Tip to y’all; quit ogling good-looking, well to do people, eagerly listening to all the bull-crap coming from their beautiful clothes wearing mouths! They don’t have any answers, look elsewhere, is all I’m saying. I do!

This snowball started rolling with my enrolling in a Community College (I graduated head of the class btw; prof told me so) course last summer. Even that, the way I found it online, its immediacy, the fact it wasn’t filled … the way it all fell into perfect place – all these things had special meaning, and I certainly wasn’t lost on it then, nor am I now! Fast forward half a year to last week, and my sit down chit-chat with my girl Jennie, offering her insightful wisdom, and in a matter of a few days, I’m able to accomplish what I wanted to, but hadn’t in all those previous months since I graduated (I did say, numero uno, eh, lol?)!! Stop reading and think about that for a minute! That’s some fucked-up powerful life shit going on … and I SEE it. I SAW it all unfolding in front of my very eyes! And while, I know this is only a baby step in the baby grand scheme of things, to me it’s a fresh start, a new beginning … Rome wasn’t built in a day bitches … And if ya’ll can’t see that, and its significance, then you don’t get what I’m talkin’ ’bout Willis!! TAGDNTOAG!!

What if I say I will never surrender?

aw aw aw aw aw aw aw aw aw aw juicy

see who can be your lover man
conscience bleeding in a song
guilty as the day is long

yay you’re going to live for your own
you say you got all the sordid details
check out retail
watch it sell
I got to see that lie
you say what you’re going to say
you got to know it’s a bitter poison
sapping all of your soul away
