Is Life What You’d Imagined, When We Had Nothing Else To Frame It In?

Posted on December 9th, 2010 in Life List, Made In Alberta, Made In Ontario, Mating And Relating, Polyamory, Three's Company

2010 has been quite a year, has it not? The past 12 months have seen Aiden move in with us and become a part of our family.  Then there was another move of epic proportions, taking all five of us, and the two dogs, over 2,000 miles back across the country.  Back to Calgary and [...]

I Lost My Virginity In A Confessional Booth

Posted on November 20th, 2010 in Collar And Cuff, Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta, Tie Me Up

Last weekend Aiden and I attended the Taboo Sex Show in Calgary. While there wasn’t anything particularly new or exciting, we DID meet some fabulous people from the local kink community and got the down-low on an upcoming play party that we plan to attend. We saw a really fantastic coffee table that converted into [...]

Have You Been Shooting Dope Into Your Scrotum? You Can Tell Me! I’m Hip!

Posted on July 2nd, 2010 in Emotional Angst, Migration Paths

In a mere weeks time, the last of our things should be disappearing into the back of a moving truck. It would seem that my ability or desire to write has been packed amongst the knickknacks and flotsam collected over the course of our lives.  I’ve sat down to write at least a dozen times, only to find myself [...]

I’ll Say Goodbye My Friend, Goodbye, Under A Summer Moon

Posted on June 7th, 2010 in Emotional Angst, Made In Ontario, Migration Paths

The moving truck should be arriving in a mere 4 weeks. 4 weeks. 28 days. Either way, the very thought induces both anxiety and excitement all at once. In that time, we have to pack as many of our things as possible, plan and execute a birthday party for the eldest child, visit Wonderland and [...]

Manatees Are Selfish

Posted on May 31st, 2010 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta, Migration Paths

The new house passed building inspection (our inspector actually commented that it was the best house he had seen in a while) and it’s all ours.  We take possession at the end of June, and should be moving in sometime during the second week of July. I am absolutely in love with the place.  V [...]

Bacon Is A Little Hug From God

Posted on April 30th, 2010 in Migration Paths

So we got the house that we wanted!  Pending a home inspection and all that legal crap of course.  I know who built the place, however, and I have every confidence that it will pass without issue.  We take possession in early July. As the details begin to solidify, the move feels increasingly more real, [...]

My Wife Is A Gangster

Posted on April 27th, 2010 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Emotional Angst, Made In Alberta, Migration Paths

After a wild house-hunting adventure, and some much-needed quality time with my BFF, we managed to find a suitable dwelling, that we both absolutely love, UNDER the price we were willing to pay.  It doesn’t get much better than that.  Ok, yes it does, but it’s still pretty damned awesome, and a huge relief to [...]

My Hovercraft Is Full Of Eels

Posted on April 25th, 2010 in Migration Paths

This post was originally written on Friday, April 23.  I haven’t had an opportunity to post it since then. I’m writing this from around 40,000 feet above the state of Michigan, on my way to Calgary. Jack and I were able to book a last-minute expedition out west to hunt for a new dwelling. Aiden [...]

Dear Alberta, See You Soon!

Posted on March 27th, 2010 in Migration Paths

Things are progressing well on the relocation front.  Everyone who needs to approve of such things in Jack’s company have given their blessing.  We are just waiting on the formalities (paperwork) which should be wrapped up in the coming week.  It’s only a formality however, aside from our signatures, it’s a done deal. Naturally we are rather [...]

I Want To Marry This Tree

Posted on March 20th, 2010 in LARP, Made In Ontario, Migration Paths, Photos

“Are you leaning today?  If so, which way?” If I had a nickle for every time that Jack and I have exchanged such messages in the last few days, well I’d have at least a dollar. Then it breaks down to the numbers.  Percentages to be exact. “I think I’m 95/5 at the moment.  You?” [...]

Sometimes I Need What Only You Can Provide: Your Absence

Posted on December 9th, 2009 in Made In Ontario, Mating And Relating, Photos, Polyamory

While I was tidying yesterday, I was rooting through a drawer, looking for the USB cord to my iPod, when I came across this broken ring.  Initially I had planned to post only a photo of it, saying I had finally thrown it out, but that would really only mean anything to less than half [...]

Oh We Didn’t Know That It Always Gets Harder

Posted on November 18th, 2009 in Emotional Angst, Mating And Relating, Polyamory

Sometimes the most difficult parts of poly are juggling time between partners, negotiating schedules, and discussing emotions ad nauseum. Sometimes the most difficult parts are agreeing on which movie to rent on a Friday night, or whose turn it is to wash the dishes, or which bed to sleep in. Lately, the most difficult part [...]

Shasta’s Favorite Things: Change Is Good

Posted on March 30th, 2009 in Made In Alberta, Photos, Shasta's Favorite Things

It’s no secret that I have an addiction to coffee.  In order to fund that addiction I hoard change, even pennies, in case I am ever in desperate need of some caffeine, and nowhere near my own coffee machine.  When I saw this coin purse at Krickets, in Calgary, I knew it would be the [...]

Shasta & V Do America – Day One

Posted on August 5th, 2008 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Life List, Made In Alberta, Migration Paths, Photos

A summary of our Saturday, spent preparing for our week-long road trip can be found here and here.  I won’t bother going over everything that happened that day, but needless to say, our trip was off to an interesting start, LOL. Sunday marked Day One of Shasta & V Do America.  We said our goodbyes [...]

I’m Going To Be Comparing Sex To Crayons For A Long Time

Posted on August 4th, 2008 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Carnal Confessions, Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta, Mating And Relating, Photos, Polyamory

On the morning of Friday, July 25th I found myself on the back of a motorcycle, headed east of Calgary towards Bragg Creek.  A friend of mine had offered to take me for a ride out to Elbow River, followed by lunch somewhere together. Since I’d already seen the Elbow Falls, he took me a [...]

Shasta’s Favorite Things: Bird On A Wallet

Posted on July 6th, 2008 in Shasta's Favorite Things

I’d been carrying the same plain black, yet functional wallet for years.  In fact, I can’t even tell you with any certainty when I bought it because I’ve had it so long.  I fell totally in love with this pocketbook style wallet by ESPE when I came across it at Krickets, in Calgary.  ESPE is a Canadian [...]

Shasta’s Favorite Things: Pick A Card?

Posted on April 22nd, 2008 in Shasta's Favorite Things

A couple of months ago I had some business cards printed with VistaPrint (great service, awesome price, I highly recommend) and since then I’ve been looking for something to carry them in, so they don’t get all bent out of shape in my purse. I stumbled across this cute and stylish Glam card holder in Krickets, [...]

Shasta’s Favorite Things: I’m Cheap And Easy

Posted on April 14th, 2008 in Shasta's Favorite Things

While I was in Calgary over the weekend we did a little shopping. Krickets down on 4th St in Mission is filled with funky and stylish accessories and gifts. Be warned, there are so many fabulous things in that store your head may explode. Knowing how I love quirky pins, V gifted me with this [...]

I’m Not Going To Write You A Love Song

Posted on April 12th, 2008 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta

I had wanted to write a post yesterday before we left for Calgary, but I didn’t have time. Ah well. It’ll wait, churning about in my brain, until I have the time to get it all out here. I’m writing this from V’s computer, while we get geared up to head out for the evening. [...]

H-Bombs Dropped; We All Died.*

Posted on February 13th, 2008 in Emotional Angst, Polyamory

Ex-Lovers can often be a precarious topic, particularly when there is a lot of complicated history involved, and especially when one wishes to write about them, knowing they will read it. I mentioned in a recent post that K and I had been working on getting past some of the bitterness and bad feelings left [...]
