There is one day that is ours. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American

The title of this post is a quote by O. Henry and I’m pretty sure that when he said it, he was so drunk he forgot that Canada has Thanksgiving too. And has it first. Monday, October 8th is Canadian Thanksgiving. That’s right, there are actually things to be thankful for here in the land […]

And To All A Good Night

They Don’t Call Them Deviled Eggs For Nothing

  So, how were your holidays? If you’re like me… hey, what’s with the panicked look and passionate protests?! Sheesh. I was joking about wearing the boots with pajamas, you know. Sort of. Whatever. Look, if your holidays were anything like mine (There, feel better? Sigh.), it was probably a crazy busy and stressful time. […]

Resolution Definition

Seems that over 200 000 people search for resolution definition every month. As a public service, I give you the definition as per dictionary.com: res·o·lu·tion  [rez-uh-loo-shuhn] – noun – a resolve or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something. There were actually 4 more definitions, but they were all pretty much the same. […]

The Spirit Of Christmas

This week I read an article in the L.A. Times about Sarah Palin criticizing the White House Christmas card. The card features Bo Obama, the family pooch and states: “From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season.” Seems Palin finds it odd the card emphasizes the dog instead […]

Gift Ideas

Only a few more shopping days until Christmas and I’m still searching for a few gift ideas. Just a few. Like a couple or nineteen or so. No reason to panic, right? See, the thing is, I’m not just searching for gift ideas, I’m searching for the perfect gifts. I’ve truly been fortunate in that […]

I Need To Find A Gift

My son, Jake, is turning 18 in a couple of weeks and I really need to find a gift. I’m stumped. I figured I’d go straight to the source and ask him what he wanted, rather than killing myself trying to find the perfect gift. His answer: “I dunno. A pool table?” Yeah, that’s not […]

I Give Thanks Everyday That I’ve Been Able To Take My Craziness And Make It Work For Me

The title of this post is a quote by artist Fritz Scholder. He was a very drunk when he said it. That doesn’t make it any less true. Keep that in mind. Monday, October 10, 2011 is Thanksgiving in Canada, and in the spirit of tradition and Canadian Whiskey, I’d like to take a moment […]

Are you looking for things to do on vacation? Here’s a comment I left on Facebook when asked what I was going to do during my vacation: Doin’ somethin’ if I feel like doin’ somethin’, doin’ nuthin’ when I feel like doin’ nuthin’. Gonna daydream and write and sing off tune. Gonna go to the […]

White Elephants Make Great Pets

My friend Margaret, over at Nanny Goats In Panties, decided to have a White Elephant party. That’s when everyone regifts crappy questionable items they have received and participates in a gift exchange. Because I am never one to turn down a party, I signed up. Margaret emailed me the name of the person I needed […]

A Year Of Cheese…A Life Of Cheese

Quite a few people spent the last few days of 2010 looking back, reviewing the year and making resolutions. I spent the last few days of 2010 trying to drink enough to completely obliterate 2010 from my memory. Success! So, I’ve spent the last couple of days sobering up and attempting to remember parts of […]

Happy New Year

 I found this New Year’s wish on the Internet. It pretty much summed up what I wish for all of you who make WWFC a joy for me, although I did have to edit the final paragraph. May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall; and may your blood […]

It Really Is A Wonderful Life – Part Two

In case you missed Part One, I managed to make myself presentable for my company Christmas party on Friday night, and then had a moment where all the planets seemed to align just for me and I felt at one with the universe. I found the Christmas spirit that had been eluding me. Part Two: […]

It Really Is A Wonderful Life – Part One

Last night was my company’s Christmas party. I haven’t really been feeling the holiday spirit, especially at work. All week long, everyone else was talking about what they were going to wear, how they were going to do their hair, etcetera, etcetera. When asked, my response was “I dunno, are sweatpants or pajamas ok?”. So […]
