Symphonic Saturday - I'm a Sheerio

music1What's a Sheerio?

Why it's a fan of Ed Sheeran of course.

He and I have a few things in common! I wasn't aware of his love of swords or that he names his guitars, so I'm thankful to this article for this new information.

  1. We both love Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

  2. We both love Game of Thrones.

  3. We both love Star Wars.

  4. I'd totally be obsessed with LEGO too if I could afford it.

  5. We both love swords.

  6. We both name our guitars.

  7. We both play music. Though I'm terrible at it in comparison and still learning.

  8. We're both geeks.

  9. We both have tattoos, though I'm way behind in comparison...


I've been a fan of Ed since before he got famous. Back when he just had one single out and regularly used the body of his guitar as his drum beat. He was different in a good way.

A-Team was a song that helped me through some tough times. I also love LEGO House. Actually, I don't think there is a Sheeran song I don't like. Some are quiet and mellow like I See Fire and others are full of energy like Galway Girl.

I have a copy of Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey that he and his friend Phillip Butah put together. It's basically a biography with more pictures and graphics than most usually have.

But he actually plays his guitar regularly. I've had so much going on with my life lately that I need to rebuild my calluses again. He also sings better.

Anyway, the VMAs are this weekend and I'm hoping to find a place to watch them.

Guid cheerio the nou,
R~

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr
