No WiFi?!

I would not, I think, last very long in an apocalypse. The Wi-Fi at the gym I frequent has been down for two days and it’s been ticking me off more than I’d like to admit. Not being able to keep up with some political shows that I watch while I use elliptical machine made me… Read more »

Weekly Internet-ing: Sparkly People, Links, and Things

Even two decades into the age of the internet, many people can still be extremely curmudgeonly about the stuff that we read online.

Remembering What We Whispered And What We Screamed

“…I think we are well-advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind’s door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed… Read more »

.home.

We all have those unpredictable places and moments that help create our sense of home. For me, I feel at home every time I look at sushi prices in Vancouver, BC. I am from a place where the air is salty, the sushi is cheap. I am from a certain city by the water.
