I'd go to karaoke with my dad but they'd pay us to leave. Dad's the only man I've ever heard sing the national anthem with only one note. No joke. It's gonna be toasty out here over the next few days. I've got to get laundry done today before the risk of it spontaneously combusting on the clothesline.

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."

Even today, the temperature was a respectable 23-- until you factored in the humidex, and then it was 30. We had a nice blast of cold air after dinner that cleared it out to something much more livable. If I were at my place instead of Dad's, the windows would be flung open and songs of joy would be sung to welcome the cool air.

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.

How's your heatwave going, btw? Might send my Dad to room with you for a while. The blood thinners mean that he's sitting in a warm room with a sweater on over his p.j.s at the moment.

Meh... man pants are overrated. I have a couple of friends who fill the traditional role of husband better than their actual man partners. If non-traditional gender roles mean that I get to eat Paul's delicious cooking, I'm all for it.

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.

Well..... damn. But, you know, that just seems to be a theme that has been ingrained from childhood. See also: Safrida's crushes on George Michael, Rick Mercer.

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.

By heyman on Jun 3, 2014 at 3:23 PM

I debating mentioning it next time I am there because I am using cheezburger as a means of avoiding the real world. She may ask me to use it less. I can't say no to women so this could actually be a big step for me when I tell her that it isn't going to happen ;-)

By heyman on Jun 3, 2014 at 3:06 PM

Went to a mood management group today and she used one of my cheezfriends caption as part of her presentation

By heyman on Jun 2, 2014 at 5:07 PM

Funny, that's the same reason I can't have my real picture on ICHC

By heyman on Jun 2, 2014 at 4:08 PM

I had to look that up. "Honest" Ed Mirvish, writer Daniel Richler, and actresses Cynthia Dale are supposedly in the video as well. I saw Moxy Fruvous as the headline act back in 93. A unknown Jan Arden opened for them and blew us out of the water. Bought her album after that. 26c here today as well and a little muggy. Not east coast muggy but too much for us wusses. Explains why the shirt is off.

I have been singing this song all morning since I heard the King of Spain was stepping down (comments has link to video)

You didn't ask the correct questions. Not sure I would like to be mayor of Toronto. Seems to be a lot of work, running around, running into people and things. Not sure I have the liver to last only one term.
