Everyone loves an underdog

Today I’ve got something a little different for you. Two brave, funny, relatable Toronto women contacted me to see if I would mention their new web series on my Twitters. I watched the trailer, and fucking loved it, so I asked if they’d be willing to write a guest blog instead (plus we know I’m lazy  I…… Continue reading Everyone loves an underdog

To say the lease-t

I promised you a series about apartment hunting, and a series you shall have. Spoiler alert: we found a place, and we get keys in 12 (holy shit!) days. I’m not moving until mid-month, and he has his place until the end of May, but still: Although our search was relatively short, it was still plenty…… Continue reading To say the lease-t

Bi the way

Monday was decidedly not my favourite. Daylight Savings can eat a bag of dicks, it was dark and rainy and gross outside, and I had to deal with apartment logistics shenanigans. Basically, this: During this wonderful day, the TTC gifted me with a gaggle of morons in my immediate vicinity. I’m normally pretty good at tuning…… Continue reading Bi the way

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

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

Love is blind

Toronto has a reputation as being a difficult city to meet people. Online dating has been a clusterfuck uninspiring as of late, but luckily a couple of weird interesting different events have fallen into my lap. Last night two friends, whom we’ll call Goldilocks and Cinderella because this is my blog and I do what I want,…… Continue reading Love is blind

Hometown glory

I’ve spent the better part of this past week in the bustling metropolis of Chatham — my hometown. No, I’m not a secret agent on some impossibly glamourous undercover assignment (I would be a terrible secret agent); we had a death in the family that I’m really not in the mood to write about just…… Continue reading Hometown glory

Let’s get stoopid

Summer in Toronto means everyone (myself included) goes apeshit over patios. After a long, dreary winter, we want to get in as much outside time as possible (while still drinking). Being lazy and somewhat cheap, I prefer to buy a bottle of wine or three and settle down on my stoop. I’m not just talking…… Continue reading Let’s get stoopid

Cottage country

While some people spent their long weekend huddling together for warmth in sleeping bags (which gives me serious May 2-4 flashbacks to high school: watching my friend puke out the fire or crying after my boyfriend puked all over our tent/me), I chose to escape my life the city by running away to the suburbs for a while. I’ve written about my time…… Continue reading Cottage country

Go the distance

We’re no stranger to awesome guest posts around these parts. That’s one of the advantages of having so many great writers in my life. My lovely friend Adrienne took the time to share her experience moving across the damn country (!!!) for love. You can check her out on Twitter to hear more of what she…… Continue reading Go the distance
