Comfort Food

When life is hard, I have a habit of wanting to go back to a simpler time, when things were easy. When smiles, laughter, contentment didn’t have to be worked for and nothing was in the way of just enjoying life. The thing that allows me to do that, in the most economical way, is…read more

Simple Premise, Hard to Explain

I have been staring at a blank page for about half an hour trying to figure out how to write about the show High Maintenance. It is not an easy show to convey even though it has a pretty simple premise. IMDB put it most succinctly: A comedy that explores the private lives of unique New…read more

Bird Course

Friends From College is a show with a simple premise; you follow the shenanigans of a group of 6 close friends that have known each other since college and the people around them that interact with this friendship. The second season of the show came out early this year to little/no fanfare (none that I saw anyways)……read more

What have I learned

I first heard about the Netflix show Sex Education simply because Gillian Anderson was in it and my friends thought I should know because of my “obsession” with The X-Files. I read a synopsis of the show which sounded a little silly, kinda run of the mill, but there was definitely a possibility of fun……read more

Are Diamonds Forever?

Do you want to know why most men believe they need to spend 2-3 months salary on an engagement ring and why some women still believe they should hold their would-be husbands to that standard? Well, you can blame De Beers. Before the late 1930’s relatively few people bought diamond engagement rings. People… …more

Cracks in the Glass

Last weekend I went out to the theatre to see a movie. It had been a month and a half since I’d had the pleasure of fold down chairs, loud chewers, and the smell of stale popcorn. My friend and I showed up without having decided what we were going to see as it was……read more

What’s going on

Over the last, almost, year and a half, life seems to have run away from me. Not because I was doing so much but really because I could do so little. I have gone through some things in the last while that have made it difficult for me to create and articulate. But in recent times I……read more

Not sure Yet

Not Sure Yet Last weekend, with much fanfare and anticipation, “Star Trek Discovery” premiered. Before the first 2 episodes of the show aired, quite a few of my friends were adamant in finding out what my… …more

Real or Made-up?

Real or Made-Up? When I was a kid I was intrigued by makeup. I would stand by my mother, her hair in curlers as she applied powders, creams, and colours, getting ready for the day. I wanted to do the same. Despite dabbing a little lipstick on my lips and brushing a… …more

Best of the Worst

Best of the Worst As a movie goer and avid comic reader, it has been clear to me for a long time that there is a problem with the DC cinematic universe. Since the horrendous Batman Forever where producers insisted on veering away from the dark humour that is Tim Burton, they… …more

Ahhh….ya know

Stuff. That is what I have been up to. Nothing overly exciting or extravagant or mind blowing. The last few weeks have been me getting on with things and just doing stuff. In all the time since I last posted I only did my nails once. I am very disappointed in myself about… …more

Haven’t Done this in a while

I have not done my nails in 2 months…2! Can you believe that? They have been free to breath, soak up some sunshine, and simply be well. I had to put an end to that when I got my Julep box this month. That had 2 new polishes in it to add to my 4……read more

Guess what I did this weekend.

Guess what I did this weekend. That’s right. Took in the sights and spent all my moneys. I complained about how the summer wasn’t the best but on a day that looked like this …more

Watching, looking, listening

Summer in Toronto this year hasn’t been particularly great. It has been cool (as in temp), rainy, and generally over cast. This is bad for BBQ’s (a couple I was invited to had to be cancelled), street festivals, and picnics. On days that were good, like today – blue skys and sunshine, I managed to……read more

Art of story telling

This weekend, in the midst of contemplating my future, I began to miss the simplicity of the past. I woke up Saturday morning and did something I hadn’t done in a while. I sat down with my breakfast and watched cartoons. I didn’t go to Netflix, or YouTube, or magically acquire some other form… …more

Just another day

What is it about birthdays that make me kind of panic? They are just like every other day. Wake up, go to work, come home, eat dinner got to sleep. But today is my birthday and that somehow makes it different. This is what the view looked like last night. …more

Better late than never

I tend to start writing articles and not finish them. I get interrupted, lose my train of thought, and never get back to it. I was going through them today and there is some interesting things in there that I thought I should still share. X-Files …more

Complaining and More

There is something wrong with me. I am on vacation and I am hating it. I seem to have turned into one of those people that does nothing but bitch and moan about men. Actually about the lack of men in my life. I don’t know I think I am just lonely. I have spent……read more

Kind of Dripping Into Each other

I did my nails this week! Hands and feet in the same style just different colours. It is the first time I tried this and I think it came out pretty good. Let’s start with the hands. …more

Let them fight

It has been a little while since I saw a movie on the opening weekend and it showed because I made a rookie move. I went to see Godzilla showing up at the theatre 20mins before showtime and expected to get a seat. What is wrong with me? Well it was the final episode of……read more
