So, Uh, About That Tree…

Yeah, okay, guilty. I’m that asshole who put her tree up on November 29th and made you feel like a totally unorganized idiot, or like I’m part of the conspiracy to make Christmas encroach further into our lives. But I say NAY. NAY, it is not encroaching! I don’t know when it started, but for a […]

Money Ain’t Everything

One of my favourite songs from my teen years was Cyndi Lauper’s “Money isn’t Everything.” It feels like life comes in with built-in looped lessons, themes that repeat constantly throughout our lives.

And Then There Was Change

I was informed of my layoff yesterday. Wednesday will be my last day, until enough work returns, or the company is forced into harder decisions. Kudos to the bosses, we’ve had an inkling this might happen. I’ve been grilling them weekly to see if changes were happening, but there has been no news, which was […]
