End of November Update

Last weekend, I watched the new Unsolved Mysteries. The theme song is similar, but I feel like anyone new to Unsolved Mysteries would see this and not understand the longstanding history. The 80s kids would. We watched it in the evenings in the TV lit family room and felt a thrilling chill at the voice that came through on the television's speakers.

The voice is gone. The format is more like mini documentaries. It's narrated by a member of the victim's family. 

New watchers won't know Robert Stack!

Onto other things...

I figured a mystery of my own out recently. No, I'm not saying what, but I'm excited about it!

On Monday, I made it out to the indoor skatepark. I forgot how much effort quad skates are! I managed to make it up one ramp once. I bailed pretty much as soon as I first stood up and I smirked about it. I had jelly legs pretty early on. It'll definitely take me awhile to get my leg strength back for it.

I saw some friends on Tuesday for a couple of drinks. 

The rest of the week sped by.

Last night, I went to Rebel's anniversary concert line up, which included Taming Sari, Double Experience, and JJ Wylde. Double Experience was my favourite performance of the night. I'm quite tired after the event though. There was a lot of standing for hours and my legs got quite sore because my tendons are jerks, but the show was worth the pain.



And today I've managed to put a few things in the car for donation before putting up my holiday tree.


All right, I'm going to do some dishes and editing or Sparker will never get published. Yes, I've renamed the book again and it will all make sense someday.

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

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

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my
