Out of the frying pan

If the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach, I might be completely fucked. The Tindude™ has made a reappearance, and last night I taught him how to cook something. No, you have not fallen into an alternate dimension where I’m a kitchen goddess; it was just pan-fried tofu.  I’ve been making strides in…… Continue reading Out of the frying pan

To have and to hold

I know, I know, two posts in a row (whee, a rhyme!). My laziness post-NYC threw off the schedule (yes, there is a schedule now), but here we are, getting back on track. It helps that I finagled another guest post out of a fabulous writer friend. This one comes courtesy of the lovely and talented Erin from…… Continue reading To have and to hold

Mind your manners

I’ve been discussing the idea of connection and chemistry a lot with friends lately. While describing a guy who was in the periphery, a friend asked what I thought about him. I told her he was nice, and she told me she wasn’t buying it. I replied that I didn’t really know him (and this should’ve…… Continue reading Mind your manners

While I have very distinct opinions on all manner of things (and I’m obviously not afraid to share them), there are some topics that are just beyond my reach. Marriage, childbirth, quantum mechanics … these are all strange and mysterious subjects that I just…… Continue reading Happy wife, happy life

What? Hunger is totally an emotion). I love being surprised as much as I love doing said surprising. Last summer when one of my…… Continue reading 3 … 2 … 1 …

On the road

I dreamt I was driving the wrong way down a one-way street. In fact, it was a highway, but the cars in every damn lane were going in the direction I wasn’t. Real subtle, thanks brain.I’ve been feeling a bit odd lately. Maybe that’s not the right word. I’ve been feeling a lot of feelings lately. The anxiety has crept…… Continue reading On the road

Loud and proud

The past 72 hours were the biggest stoop event of the summer: World Pride weekend. I live in the heart of the gay village, and every year my stoop/entire apartment turns into Pride headquarters for all those near and dear to me, my roommate, and our downstairs neighbours. My closest friends and I gear up for…… Continue reading Loud and proud
