This morning I started to count calories, something I’ve never ever ever done (and said I’d never do) in my life. It’s apparently a year of firsts, as I’ve also begun on a treadmill. Turns out I like it better than walking outside in terms of getting exercise (as opposed … Read More ›

New Toy!

I just got me a fantastic deal on an IBM Thinkpad r40. $400 for a laptop, dude! And it’s smoking fast for such a tiny, older machine. I’m typing this from my bedroom. Whee! It’s really going to be for my studio, so that when I take photos of my … Read More ›

I’m off to the doctor to see the results of the x-rays they took of my knee two weeks ago. I’m not in the excruciating pain I was in for about three weeks, but whenever anybody asks me how my knee is, I say, “weak and frightened.”  It’s been 13 years since … Read More ›

A note to my loved ones

Random Photos

I have my own computer back. It’s only got 40G of space and no secondary drive whatsoever, and I honestly at this point have no idea what kind of any specs it has anymore; but it works and it’s here, and I realized I could finally dump my photo cards! Clearly, … Read More ›

IET Trip Three

I went to see Kathy again last night. It was a calmer, more relaxed evening – well, in that I had no huge epiphanies. Mostly, anyway. We discussed my week, which was mostly gleeful and happy. I had spent the night before with Laird hanging out at dollarama and value … Read More ›

Reiki & Integrated Energy Therapy

The last month or so has been a real upheaval for me. I was puttering happily along in my life, gearing up with jewellery and doing well at work and seeing a boy or two here and there. Then this guy, a friend of a friend, and I started chatting … Read More ›
