A snit changed the world.

My dad was a consummate flea-market shopper. One of his hobbies on Saturdays he didn’t work, was to travel amongst the various tag-sales, garage sales, rummage sales, and flea-markets in the surrounding towns. Sometimes he would take rides up into Vermont or New Hampshire if it looked to be a nice day. If one of […]

Blue Summer

There’s a certain feeling that goes with the early-morning of summertime. A special time when most people are asleep, when part of the world is still moving, and interesting things are happening – but most of the world is oblivious.   A humid summer night : Countless role-playing games ended at one or two o’clock […]

Gozer the .. Yazirian?

There was a time in my life when the most difficult decision I had to make on a Friday evening was if I was going to pretend to be a Vrusk or a Yazirian. What to make for dinner? Should I go out with this person that contacted me online? What birthday party/school social event […]

Gorka-Morka!

This was the second time, in less than 24 hours, I would find it ironic that I had seen Mad Max : Fury Road the weekend prior. I’m not sure what I did wrong. To be fair to myself – I was running on less than two hours sleep, after being awake for twenty-six hours, […]

Dating Burnout

There was a bit of crazy in my life earlier this year. I don’t need to go into the details, I don’t *want* to go into the details. Everyone has a story of the person who turned out to be entirely different than the person you thought they were, the person they said they were. […]

Mr. Greyish

“Luckily,” she thought, “My arms are above my head, or this would have been over a long time ago.” She could feel the weight of her lover’s body holding her firmly down, pinning her legs, her hips, and making it almost impossible to move. The hands that were restraining her wrists were rough, and careless. […]

Cameras not Submarines

The laughter started almost immediately. I was in a room with a handful of co-workers, a VP, the CTO, and the Operations manager. One of the topics on the agenda was the discussion of a minor upgrade at some of the testing centers. The decision had been made a few months ago to upgrade the […]

Sixty-Eight Cents

I was pondering my life. Which is something you do when you are pumping gas into your car, I suppose. My frustration of the minute was centered around the two dates I had over the weekend. I often find interaction with people to be draining, *especially* first dates where you play the guessing-game all night. […]

I Broke a Girl’s Heart …

She had bleached blond hair and a one year old daughter. I broke a girl’s heart when I dumped her two weeks before her prom. She drank beer from a can using straws. She was the first girl who took photos of herself in lingerie for me. I broke a girl’s heart when I dumped […]

Happy Birthday Dad

Today would have been my dad’s birthday. He was a son-of-a-bitch. He was a bastard. He was opinionated, and rough, and stoic. But he was mine. I remembered something this morning, while I was pondering why Vincent wanted to keep something like thirty colouring books that he never uses. (We were cleaning his room a […]
