By all accounts, I'm a pretty awkward person. That is until we break that metaphorical barrier when we go out together and I have one to many Alabama Slammers and lose all sense of personal space and volume control. But, under normal circumstances, I'm pretty strange. I like to fill the silence with awkward conversation… Continue reading On Being a Patient
A little while back we were having a fire "issue" here in Southern Alberta. (Map here if you failed geography class.) For the most part, my hubby and I didn't really have cause to worry as we weren't close to any of them and our friends and family weren't either. Except for one weekend, when… Continue reading I’m Not a Good Apocalypse Partner
It's pretty easy to float along. I've been doing it for most of my life. Speaking for myself, I got to a point where I started thinking about what my mark on this world would be. After years of convincing myself that a 'mark' isn't a worthy 'mark' unless you stop global warming, "dispose" of… Continue reading Leave Your Mark
Being a better person? That's not your thing! Is probably what you're saying to yourself. But it's time. I mean, I'm just talking about my body here. I haven't even delved into emotional baggage or spiritual disconnectedness, but I DON'T WANT TO BORE YOU. I'm just getting to the age where I'm starting to be fully… Continue reading Adventures in Being a Better Person
My entire life, I haven't known how to like things moderately. I always intensely love things - often for a short period of time - or intensely hate things. My whole life is one giant lack of a middle ground. It's really quite exhausting. When it comes to very intense, TV dramas, I really truly… Continue reading TV Shows: The Dark List
When you're cranky you don't really want to write about anything 'cause you're waist deep in your doom and gloom attitude and everything that comes out of your fingertips seems to be inane drivel about nothing important. Or heavy, big topics that seem too overwhelming to broach. How am I supposed to tackle why Trump… Continue reading I’m Cranky
I'm like ... 70% positive that when we die we just rot in the ground and become a part of the earth again. Maggot food. The whole bit. It's a CYCLE people. But sometimes I do like to ponder the possibility that previous lives, or hell, even parallel universes exist - because what the hell… Continue reading Parallel Meg
I was listening to a CBC story about how the Girl Guides have come out with a recommendation this holiday season to not force your girls to give hugs to friends or family when they don't want to. Which naturally, I'm ALL OVER. But the story itself, of course, had its critics. Claiming that an… Continue reading My Body. My Rules.
I recently decided to invest my very little time into another fucking hobby, 'cause apparently I don't have enough. (Another thing to fill up my time to avoid the existential DREAD. AMIRITE?!) I legit don't even watch Netflix anymore. WHAT HAS BECOME OF ME. So now I spend most of my time spinning in circles… Continue reading Things I Learned This Week
For real though, Christmas is truly my favourite holiday. And I really can't get down with the give-me-xanax-cause-my-family-has-unresolved-issues-that-come-out-when-we-all-get-together-and-drink bullshit. (So don't even start with me, Linda.) It's a great time where everyone is happy (or forcing themselves to be) and everything is adorned with twinkly lights and magic is EVERYWHERE. If I could, I'd put… Continue reading Christmas is the Best … Usually.
