It might surprise you, dear readers, to know that I rarely find joy in anything. Disappointment builds character and I am brimming with character. I am so used to hitting snags and being turned down and cold cocked with "NO" that some days I don't even try. I just wait... Continue reading

Ok, so I was having a very weird and convoluted dream the other night and the only part that can be put into daytime awake words is this part: I am President Obama's assistant. We are on a handshaking tour of some kind where he is on a schedule and... Continue reading
In case any of you noticed, I ain’t been around much the last week. Funny story that… Last Monday I was chatting with a friend in the States when I decided to multi-task; I would chat AND listen to some NPR pod casts. As soon as I clicked on Itunes... Continue reading
Originally posted May 13, 2007 at 11:14 AM Edited November 19, 2007 Oh, what a beautiful morning... Due to past experiences, I have a dread when it comes to crossing the border from Canada into the US as well as crossing from the US into Canada. There is no way... Continue reading

Who was your best (or worst) elementary school teacher? Submitted by Minnow. Hands down Aline McGuinty Jones 6th grade Bayou Meto Elementary You never knew what the day was going to be like in Mrs. Jone's class room. She was a nutbag. At lunch we were not allowed to talk... Continue reading
What was the worst job you ever had? Submitted by salaryman. I can't talk about it without triggering rapid flashbacks. The husband says I get a shell-shocked Vietnam Vet glaze over my eyes. In my head I hear the music of Platoon. Camera Mart. Continue reading
I almost forgot about that cake! Here is what it looks like in a pan...yeah, I know, it reminded me of something I once saw in a medical text book too. DrPepperCake Here is what a slice of it looks like. DrPepperCake2 As I have said, baking is not what... Continue reading
The story I am about to tell is true with little, if any, exaggeration. A few hours ago I was getting ready to leave the apartment, just a quick walk down to Davie Street for some shopping, when I pulled the drain plug from the bathroom sink and took a... Continue reading
I just saw this ad on my vox and I have to wonder what in the hell I said that would conjure up an ad like this. The mention of kd lang and Vanity Fair should have at least brought out an L-Word or Project Catwalk ad... GBearD Are these... Continue reading
What are you doing to save money during this economic downslide? Submitted by Jenn. Good Gawd, I am already the cheapest person on earth! What more do you want from me? Because I have been frugal for the last 30 years, I don't have to do a damned thing to... Continue reading
While in Seattle awhile back I had a Bloody Mary that was made with Bacon infused Vodka. Yes, it was AWESOME - and I rarely use that term to describe anything. The awsomeness might have less to do with the bacon and more about being Bloody Mary deprived in Vancouver.... Continue reading
Carrot Cake Cupcakes Recipe | Simply Recipes I find that you can tell a lot about someone based on the type of carrot cake they make. I find that those who enjoy pineapple and coconut in their carrot cake are a bit more flamboyant and unpredictable than the average... Continue reading
I love soup. Here is a quick soup I threw together last night after the husband asked, "can we have soup with dinner?" 1 can of white kidney beans vegetable or chicken broth (I used chicken this time) 3 kinds of onion type things - chopped. I used leek, red... Continue reading
or why I probably need bifocals. About 2 weeks before Christmas I start asking the husband, "So what do you want for Christmas food?" We aren't very traditional in the sense that we eat the same thing every year. The only tradition is that there is usually enough left over... Continue reading
Leave it to honesty and karma meeting in a dark alley and plotting a way to kick me in my girl balls. My last Vox entry concerned dreams I have been having about my mother. It took me a long time to be able to put those words together, say... Continue reading

This entry isn't about any particular dream about my mother - just most of them. First of all, I want to make it clear that I have no desire to hurt my mother. I have put up with her my entire life and I love her. When I hear a... Continue reading
It was about time I had my re-occurring Camera Mart dream. Back Story: I worked at Camera Mart for 5 or 6 years in the late 80's and early 90's. I loved it at first then grew to hate it. I still dream about working there after all this time.... Continue reading
I can't even flower this up. It's weird and it has me creeped out. Over the summer the husband and I went to Kelowna and stayed at a big hotel. Not wanting to spend every waking hour eating or drinking or gambling in the casino, I decided to get my... Continue reading
I don't really like going out for New Years. I don't mind a house party if there is an invite - but in general I have become intolerant of drunks and screaming girls. For some reason New Years Eve is a celebratory event for lightweight drinkers and girls who run... Continue reading
What song gives you the most holiday cheer? Submitted by Roxy. It would be the Jingle Bells on the Mexicali Brass Christmas Album. Most of the songs are pretty peppy on this rare album treat. On a side note. Christmas carols make me very weepy. If you wanna see me... Continue reading
Show us something by your favorite artist. Submitted by Miss Parker. I recently found Stan Rice. Knew about him through his wife, Anne Rice, but never really looked into who he was until a few months ago. He is my favorite right this minute. COWBOY ON STOOL IN CANYON COWBOY... Continue reading
I don't mind kids as much as I usually mind their parents. Last night we went for some Mexican food. We hadn't even gotten our chips and salsa when a guy with two kids comes in and plops down at the table next to us. The place was near empty,... Continue reading
