Long time no see!

Hey!  Look at that!  I haven’t blogged in six months.  Time flies when your life is changing every second.  Hooray! But I’m back, though probably still very sporadically.  However, I do have something new to share.    Typing is hard.  Blah blah blahing in front of a camera is not.  So…. I’m vlogging now! The topics … Continue reading

#15 – Claire

#15 – Claire

Claire is another one of my Twitter friends, so it’s hard to trace exactly how we got to know each other.  It was a  quickly formed friendship, one that translated into me leaving our first “in real life” visit with multiple bottles of wine.  She takes good care of me. We’ve bonded over similarities.  A … Continue reading

#13 – Dad (The Birthday Edition)

If you ask my Dad to recount any stories of my birth and my first year of age, you’ll be out of luck. He saw me enter the world through the hospital room window.  After much false labour, it only took a couple of hours of “real” labour for me to make my appearance.  He … Continue reading

#12 – Pier

#12 – Pier

While I was waiting in line to grab a coffee before my meeting with Kate, I ran into Pier.  I don’t think he and I have properly spoken in a long time.  Maybe even years.  Sure, we’re friends on Facebook.  I stay up to date with his company’s work, but it’s been a while since … Continue reading

#8 – Shane

I have a strange way of making friends.  I mean, I meet people pretty much the same way everyone else does, but I go about choosing my “keeper” friends oddly.  #8 and #9 are such people. Do I remember exactly when I met Shane?  Nope.  I know he did community theatre with my Mom and … Continue reading

#6 – Les Sicottes

#6 – Les Sicottes

They were my tormentors, my best friends, my classmates, and will forever be my family. Mélanie and Mélissa (twins… can’t ya tell?) are my age, and Marc is one year younger.  My mother babysat all three of them at our home after school for too many years to count.  We were as close as cousins … Continue reading

#3 – Michelle

#3 – Michelle

Smart and sassy, Michelle is one of my longest friends.  We met doing community theatre and I was amazed with her positive spirit, grace, and beautiful voice. She moved away for university and then spent what felt like forever building a career for herself, eventually starting her own ESL school in Japan.  Needless to say … Continue reading

#1 – Mes Amours

#1 – Mes Amours

Let’s get the two most obvious (and important) ones out of the way, shall we? I see myself in them every day. The good parts, and the not-so-good parts. I think they are amazingly beautiful, especially when feverish or covered in dirt from the park. They push my buttons. They test my patience. They are … Continue reading
