Frisky Friday - 20+ Things to Expect After Legalization

Jumping_the_SharkAs cannabis legalization slowly inches forward, I thought you could use a post that highlights some things to expect once it's here.

Disclaimer: I'm not an expert, nor am I giving medical advice.

1. Home Design: You may experience sudden urges to rearrange your living space.
2. Food Innovation: An inherited skill where you make the most amazing and unexpected fusions.
3. Dinner Parties: A unique multi-course dining experience.
4. Increased Libido: It's the closest thing to a woman's Viagra.
5. The Munchies: Sometimes you might not even be hungry, but you want to feel something crunch against your teeth.
6. Reduced Inflammation: It's a natural anti-inflammatory.
7. Higher Patience: You'll be able to stay calm when an asshole is talking to you.
8. Time Distortion: You may have periods where you ran through whole scenarios in your head and thought you must've been gone for an hour when it's only been 5 minutes.
9. Focus! Oooo, shiny...: You'll either have great focus or be Dory. Some strains are better than others.
10. Temporary Paralysis: Also known as couch lock. As stress relieving as massage.
11. Healed Trauma: It's the best thing for managing PTSD.
12. Dry/Cotton Mouth: Even worse when drinking too.
13. Forgetfulness: Some people forget their wallets more often.
14. Highs and Lows: Some strains lift you up and others bring you down.
15. Government Greed: Are they monopolizing the market where you are?
16. Reduced Fear: You might push through whatever plateau you've been stuck on.
17. Giving Less Fucks : If you've ever been told you have a stick in an unusual place, weed may help you lose it.
18. Music Taste: You might find yourself experimenting with Bob Marley.
19. Intolerant People: Remember that not everyone likes what you like and they might be asses about it.
20. Weird Sensations: Are your teeth floating in your mouth?
21. Paranoia: You *might* become convinced your friends are cannibals and you're dinner. For more on how that might turn out, check out my short story The Third Wheel.

Happy Friday!

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
