things are being resolved is probably the best way to describe my life too. Negotiating with the future ex over the divorce. Not fun, she makes more money than I and like any person, she is not all the keen on giving up any of "her" money. She has gone from offering nothing to a low ball offer, so I guess that is progress. Other than that, life is good.

Good to see you back! I read your reply to MamaW, good to hear things are getting better.

Teachers have a class size thing in their agreement. Government said "Ya, whatever". Courts said "Dude's, you signed the agreement for class size so get over it". Government says "Whatever". I think that is what is happening in the teachers strike in BC.

My daughter graduated in 2012 but I am still stressed about strikes and that she would end up at home all the time. She doesn't even live with me and I still stress. BC teachers are on strike.

Was it the date night at Swiss Chalet that got you?

Turns out it was the green ninja from my earlier avatars that took them. Hopefully the BIL is offering free lessons becuse I decided not to rescue my family and use the money for hipster drinks at Starbucks.

ed: Great to hear your dad is driving again and you are going to be able to spend time at your own place! Little victories!

Finally got my daughter to go with me to karaoke. Cost me a fortune in booze but got her up to sing. She sang "Bad Touch" by the Bloodhound Gang. Proud Papa (wipes a tear from corner of eye) hehe

BC fire history "On September 17, 1868, Barkerville was destroyed by fire and 116 homes were destroyed. The fire was caused by a miner trying to kiss one of the girls in a saloon. The ensuing struggle dislodged a stove pipe, setting the canvas ceiling on fire."

Right now it is a chilly 36c. Better than the other day of 40.7c, 0.3 more and we would have hit the all time record for Kamloops. I have been working overnight shifts so I have managed to get through the worst of it so far. Looks like your polar summer vortex is leaving for the weekend and going all the way up to 27 for Tuesday. I always forget about the humidity out there.

Haha. I recently came out to my daughter and said it was part of the reason her mom and I broke up. I later said I was surprised her mom didn't tell her. Apparently her mom pee'd herself from laughing when my daughter asked if I was gay. I laughed too until I thought about it. My daughter thinks I might possibly be gay. I may have to put on my man pants a little more often. (that last sentence doesn't sound very pc). What I am saying is that my ex was the man of the family.

ed: Apparently Les is gay. His wife of 25 years, at the time he came out, said she always wondered. Not that it matters. If I would have known maybe I would have had a crush on him too instead of that Farrah Fawcett person.

I always get them mixed up with Three Dead Trolls in a Baggy and Corky and the Juice Pigs songs.

Arrogant Worms crack me up. The Last Saskatchewan Pirate is one of my favourites.

In my defense, I felt sorry for the Starbucks workers having to work today, so I brought them a box of Timbits. Nice to see fan club celebrations all across Canada today.

By heyman on Jul 1, 2014 at 7:42 AM

Happy Canada Day! Starbucks was on holiday hours this morning and I barely made it that 1/2 hour until it opened.

By heyman on Jun 27, 2014 at 7:25 PM

Haha, I better send a tweet to my fan club. The governing body, FIDO, has been trying to crack down on biting. (Now I just need to come up with the phrase for the acronym)

By heyman on Jun 24, 2014 at 7:12 PM

Thanks for listening, I needed that today. So tempted to write a big long reply when I get on a role ;-)

Yes, long term depression. I didn't want to move in with the in-laws, but they had an agenda of living in the country and our money was a means to an end. Lot's of other life things made me sad and eventually led to loneliness. Loneliness led to depression. Tried SSRI's and hated how they made me feel. I tried to go cold turkey and ended up with brain zaps from that. Apparently I could have killed myself by doing that. Psychiatrist diagnosed me in my 40's with Aspergers but now that I am out and happier, I am not so sure anymore. Currently I am struggling with side effects of years of depression. Getting out, meeting people and trusting these people is the biggest hurdle. Her and her parents are great people, but they love to talk and can be overwhelming. After I separated, my family started telling me that they didn't want to visit because of how bad a situation I got myself in to and that they found her parents overwhelming. Funny how things come out after. I took all the responsibility for being sad and it has only been recently that I have allowed myself to think that there where a lot of things that I had no control of.

I hear ya on that. I haven't been happy since the great idea of buying an acreage with my in-laws happened ... 20 years ago. Feel like a moron for being sad for that long. Instead of moving she decided she didn't want to deal with me being sad anymore. In retrospect I am much happier since the separation, she seems to be and my daughter (19) likes that we are happier. Though she is not to happy about me asking for spouse support.

By heyman on Jun 24, 2014 at 5:37 PM

That is great news! Does this mean you have a little bit of respite? Served my ex with divorce papers today. Not sure how to feel. I didn't want the separation, but at the same time she was probably right about leaving.

By heyman on Jun 24, 2014 at 4:43 PM

a whole bunch more of Shane

Good to hear you are taking care. Thoughts and prayers with you and the family. Glad about your election as well. I used to be a conservative until I grew up and started having adult thoughts and feelings. It was easy to be a kid and a Lougheed conservative, but then Mulroney, Reagan, Thatcher came along and bad touched the party. BC made me have more social values and did it without the use of pot. Extreme position in any direction make me automatically on alert.

I hear you are crazy busy in RL. Remember to take time for yourself. We need a healthy safrida.

Australian PM calls Canada Canadia which reminded me of this lol which then had me Google Canadia and found the wiki page and then and now I am tired from all that learnin'

By heyman on Jun 5, 2014 at 12:34 PM

Moncton ... don't even have the words. My step dad was a police officer in St John. Felt close to home and then my brain went "Mexico City is 1000km closer to me than Moncton". Just woke up from overnight shift and they are still in lockdown.
