The Push to 300000

So. My car is getting old. 2017 – 2008 wants to be nine years, but given the reality of the car market, it’s closer to ten years. I’ve only owned it half that time, but I have to say that I’ve used it a lot. So much so that it’s gone over 200,000 kilometres. 140,000 […]

Impetus for Change

For any constant readers who don’t know, I’ve accepted a job offer and I’m moving on from Haemonetics. Moving on, once again, from Bisonweb. In order to do so, I’ve had to come to terms with how things ended at Gamesys, and basically, and as stupid as it sounds, had to forgive the notion of […]

On Writing

Well, if that title doesn’t dissipate the cloak of humility I usually try to wear, I can’t imagine anything else would either. Now that it’s out of the way, I can get to what I want to say. I’ve meant to be a better writer than I am. I’ve meant to be more consistent in […]

2015 Houston Texans, Week 1: Kansas City

Week 1 with a new quarterback. Is there anything more hopeful than a team going into the season with a quarterback who earned his way into the lineup with an open competition? Never mind that he barely won the competition over the guy now holding the clipboard. Never mind how the guy actually performed when […]

2015 Houston Texans – Preseason

Through the magic of the internet, and thanks to the NFL, I have the ability to watch every game from last season right now. So, what am I doing with this newfound ability? Am I tracking the championship season of the Denver Broncos in Peyton Manning’s last season? Am I looking at has, of late, […]

Rescuing, Fostering, and Other Acts of Heroism

It started, for me at least, with good feeling. I learned about Zoe’s Animal Rescue through a friend who was fostering one of their dogs. Kim was maybe, possibly interested in adopting him. I wasn’t incredibly against it either. We could give a dog a good home, especially since we’d moved out to the country. […]

My Friend Cliff

We grew up playing countless games of street hockey, football, tennis, even baseball. I totally forgive him for breaking my nose with a baseball bat the day of grade nine graduation (mostly because it was totally my fault). Apart from sports, we’ve worked together on a lot of things: we’ve been writing partners, we’ve been […]

Becoming

I was too young. Then, I had my head in the sand. I honestly believed that racism, hatred, and xenophobia were on the sharp decline. I thought that things like, y’know, gender equality, and acceptance of LGBTQ were, if not here, at least inevitable. I have to face it: I was naïve. I was doing […]
