I Beat The Internet. The End Guy Is Hard

Posted on October 24th, 2010 in Migration Paths, Three's Company

Has it really been 20 days since the last time I posted?  Time certainly does fly when one is busy. We recently celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada, and I had the great pleasure of hosting dinner for a number of friends, including LD, V, P, Aiden’s brother and sister-in-law, and M.  Much food was eaten, [...]

I Taste Like The Tears Of Sad Children

Posted on August 13th, 2010 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Emotional Angst, Migration Paths, Three's Company

As badly as I wanted to move back to Alberta, and as happy as I am to be here, for some reason I feel…not quite myself since we got here. I haven’t been sleeping well, I’m edgier, more easily agitated, noticeably more negative in my attitude.  I don’t feel like I have been handling things, stress in particular, [...]

My Pants Are Haunted

Posted on July 27th, 2010 in Emotional Angst, Made In Alberta, Mating And Relating, Migration Paths

I know this is going to make me sound incredibly spoiled, but I’ve never actually moved into a second-hand house before. At least, not a house of my own.  Every place that Jack and I have lived since moving in together has been brand-spankin-new and generally built to our tastes. The current house came to [...]

There’s Definitely Something Unnatural Going On Here, And That Doesn’t Usually Lead To Hugs And Puppies

Posted on July 22nd, 2010 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Emotional Angst, Life List, Made In Alberta, Made In Ontario, Mating And Relating, Migration Paths, Polyamory

Has it really been so long since my last post? Presently I am writing from our new place in Alberta.  We are still negotiating our way through a maze of boxes, as our things only arrived on Monday. The trip to Alberta was long and wonderful and terrible and beautiful, all at the same time. [...]

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 [...]

Cannibalism Is The Highest Form Of Love

Posted on June 2nd, 2010 in Budge That Pudge, Life List, Migration Paths

It would appear, that after seven months of having my IUD, my period has neglected to come at all.  Being four days late, and knowing that under regular circumstances, the mere thought of sex is nearly enough to induce a pregnancy, I decided to pee on one of those fancy sticks the other night.  It [...]

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 [...]

Pants Are An Illusion, And So Is Death

Posted on May 26th, 2010 in LARP, Made In Ontario, Migration Paths

Next weekend Aiden and I were supposed to be LARPing, for the last time at our regular game.  However, after some thought and discussion, we decided to skip the event and go camping together out at Killbear Provincial Park instead.  Aiden went there with his family when he was 12 and he has wanted to [...]

A Bear Is Just A Man Who Made A Choice

Posted on May 24th, 2010 in Made In Ontario, Migration Paths

We are presenting an offer on another house this weekend.  Jack was in Calgary for a couple of days recently and was able to scout out some homes for us.  One in particular seems to meet all of our requirements, and it’s a great deal, so we are making a move on it, even though [...]

I Have Known The Inexorable Sadness Of Pencils

Posted on May 17th, 2010 in LARP, Made In Ontario, Migration Paths

I’ve been meaning to post an update here for some time, but opportunities to write have been few and far between as of late.  Our existence seems to be consumed by all things move-related. Aiden and I went LARPing last weekend, despite the fact that I felt terribly guilty for leaving the house at all, under the [...]

How To Install Linux On A Dead Badger

Posted on May 3rd, 2010 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Emotional Angst, Made In Ontario, Mating And Relating, Migration Paths, Photos

The weekend passed with very little incident. On Friday night Aiden went and picked up our friend, Dex, and the three of us went to see How To Train Your Dragon.  It was a SUPER cute movie, and we all really enjoyed it.  Jack and P took the kids to see it during her visit [...]

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 [...]

The Devil Has The Best Tuna

Posted on April 19th, 2010 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Emotional Angst, LARP, Made In Ontario, Migration Paths

I really want to write something here today, and I must have started this post at least half a dozen times, but I find myself getting several lines in and then deleting it all and walking away from my computer for a while, only to sit down and start again, delete, rinse, repeat. I’m certain [...]

Redheads Are Not The Freshest Produce In The Aisle

Posted on April 5th, 2010 in LARP, Made In Ontario, Mating And Relating, Migration Paths, Polyamory, Three's Company

Yesterday P and Jack left for an outing in Niagara Falls.  As a surprise/gift to the two of them, I made arrangements for an overnight stay at a hotel overlooking the falls, in a room with a jacuzzi and a king sized bed.  Their mini vacation also included several VIP wine tastings, a dinner for two at [...]

Oh No, Someone Ate Spaghetti In The Shower Again

Posted on March 31st, 2010 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Body Mods, Collar And Cuff, Does All Her Own Stunts, Emotional Angst, LARP, Made In Ontario, Mating And Relating, Migration Paths, Polyamory

I’ve started a number of blog posts this week, and they just never seem to get finished. First I began writing about a tantrum I had on Friday that culminated in me taking off my collar and leaving it on Aiden’s bed while he was at work.  The discussion that followed was rather uncomfortable for [...]

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 [...]

Alberta Bound?

Posted on March 22nd, 2010 in Migration Paths

Psssst… So it looks like we will be moving this summer. In fact it’s about a 99% certainty. More to come as details are provided for us. In the mean time, I’m going to start packing.
