Far from normal

I always wondered when it would happen, and it surprises me that it took this long: My online harasser found the blog. He may be reading this post. He may be digging through the archives for more ammunition to try to bait me with (favourite tactics include racist remarks, slut-shaming, and insults about my body,…… Continue reading Far from normal

Home is where the heart is

Finally, all those years of online dating are paying off (they technically paid off when I met Bogart, of course, but now I can put those skills to some sort of practical use)! I am apartment hunting. Technically we are apartment hunting, but I’m the one with the quasi-normal schedule, and I’m a bit controlling of…… Continue reading Home is where the heart is

Hello from the other side

Hello, it’s me. I mean, of course it’s me, it’s my blog, who did you come here for? If the answer is, ‘Guest bloggers, duh,’ then it’s your lucky day!

Not only did…… Continue reading Get freaky

Well, I would probably have a…… Continue reading Too much too soon

The more the merrier

The problem with good dates is they typically don’t result in good stories. Or at least not the kind of stories people come here to read. Luckily (for whom I don’t know), I managed to combine the two earlier this week. I met Bogart on Tinder (where else, really?) and he’s already a reader thanks…… Continue reading The more the merrier

Trick or Treat

No matter what, my friends always know how to cheer me up. The following text message conversation took place on Friday night: Me: I will not cry in a bar. My Girlfriend Not Girlfriend: Worse things have happened in a bar. You’ve hooked up in a bar. (A long, long time ago. Sorry Mom.) But I’m…… Continue reading Trick or Treat
