Crack Pipe

Now I have heard it all,

it is no secret that my adventure in a new store in my city is not going well, the people that are working for me don't see eye to eye with me, for one thing they are all alot shorter than me, and for two, they don't take kindly to people not from there neighborhood, I actually was told that I smell like Charleswood, I asked what that smell was, and they said flowers and grass and stuff.

so it was no surprise that today the boss asked me into his office and asked me to recall a night when I worked so that he could question me about an associate issue. On the night in question, did I walk to Tim Hortons, get a coffee, and behind the said coffee shop, smoke crack cocaine?
My first reaction was to laugh my ass off, I though this was a joke. But I held it together to strongly deny my drug use. And state the fact that I did not leave the store in the night in question.

anyway it looks like I will be moving out of that store soon, because my store manager and I are of the same school of thought it wont be long before someone else comes up with another store like "He touched me" and then I find my ass fired because it is my word against them.

Later Days,

Sick Kitties


What a shitty day, my co-worker at my "new" store had her mother dye in an accident yesterday, sucks for her.

and when I get home I had to take our cats to the vet, they are not eating well and are sneezing alot. so the vet gave me extra smelly food for them and showed me how to force feed them till they get over there kitty colds. needless to say force feeding cats is not high on my list of fun things to do.

but on the good news front Dr M is comming to stay with us on sunday and she is going to be loads of fun, but we have to get the house ready for her.

blah.. Cant wait till the day is over.

Happy Easter

Hiya, this is an eater egg that was given to me by one of my crew at work, it is as I am told a traditiona Macedonian easter egg. Macedonia is a small country north of greace, the worst offence is to call a Macedonian Greek. I have hired a few people from this small country over time and they all have turned out to be very nice people who love life, work hard, and like to laugh.

Falla (thankyou in Macedonian) I am picking up a bit here and there.

BBM update,

Whoooo there folks, K the bbm thing, it is Done, over finnished, For all of you that did not get a package please know that I am truly sorry. Even my wife got shorted too. The following are the steps I took to try and get'er done for you.

Step 1 Just a friendly reminder that MRS X hasnt gotten your package please update me on its status.
Step 2 I am sure by now that you have got your package from the swap PLEASE recipricate!
Step 3 It is unfortunate that you entered into a swap with no intention of sending a package, alot of people put alot of time and effort into this and it really sucks that they get nothing in return.
Step 4 You will not be allowed into anyother swaps that I host.

Mean people suck yes we all know this, and we all know that they are out there and sometimes they poop on your head it is unfortunate, although as my dad says it builds character learning to deal with things like this, lets just say turn the other cheek and move on.

Meet the New family Members

Hiya, we have been wanting a cat for the longest time so the time is right and we have all the stuff we go to the Humane society with our pet carrier, that has never been used to pick up our new kitty. Low and behold we fall in love with a pair, thats right two kitties, Chloe and Callie there owner died recently and they were turned into the pound, we just couldnt split this pair up. So home comes a kitty in the carrier and a kitty in a box. Chloe is 4 and very much the one in charge, however a little timid. Callie is adventure waiting to happen, been everwere and done everything.



I am sure there will be more pictures comming, however they are still in the "I just want to hide" process of comming home. I am just glad to see that they are hidding in the places that we are able to find them. and not behind the fridge.

What A nice town you have here!

There are those things that you see when driving that make you wish that you had a camera with you well this is one of those things.

A tropical paradise, untouched by man... where a bizarre civilization exists.

Ok I know it isnt spelled the same but freaky non the less.

The Journey of Spot

This is the story of a lady bug named Spot. Spot is a bed bug who spends most of his time guarding house hold items, ensuring that things stay the same.

Now spot got bored and convinced his keepers to take him to the land of lobster and beer, that’s right Halifax. Now the trip was arduous and long but being put in the over head compartment isn’t as bad as it sound, and it is only for take off and landing. Most of the time spot talked his way into his keepers lap.

Now the first thing that was in Halifax of notation was a sign that the keepers were taken with. It seemed that this was a concept that struck a chord.

And so they did. the five fishermen was a wonder for them and the hosts of the group. Not to worry aphids where on the menu as well.

and desert of course

From there there was a love affair with a market with Pete's Frootique Pete is the food hunter from the food network Canada. The store was amazing and had so many interesting displays with tons to look at while shopping. It had a full serve meat and fish section as well.

It is too bad that Pete him self wasn’t there because There was someone who wanted a cook booked autographed. We hear that he works the store on a regular basis.

There was an amazing store there called The Freaks Lunch box that carried many kinds of candy and sweets that are hard to find or imported. And look they hire ummpa loompas

The hostess of the group had a hankering for Perogies so after the trip to Pete’s we all stayed up till two in the morning and boiled, mashed, rolled, pinched and boiled again. Good times where had by all.

The next day was a trip to Peggy’s Cove to see a light house Spot being a Prairie bug was enthused by this. The sign on the light house was worth the trip in its self.

It was too dark out to get a good picture of the sea or the light house itself, however Spot managed to take a picture of the group.

In order Jason, Jon, Dr M, and The Gurl. It felt like family the whole trip the closness was unbelievable. Jon is the Dr.’s room mate and he made us feel so welcome. And gave us a few lessons in wine.

It wasn’t too long till the trip was over and we all had to go home, alas there was one last lobster to kiss at the airport.

All in all they all liked the trip, Spot got to spread his wings and see the rest of the country. Halifax sure was a nice place, even a possibility of living there wouldn’t be out of the question. Aphids year round with out having to dig through the snow.
