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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Australian PM calls Canada Canadia which reminded me of this lol http://cheezburger.com/8195284736 which then had me Google Canadia and found the wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadia_(genus) and then http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Doolittle_Walcott and now I am tired from all that learnin'
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.
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 ;-)
