Elizabeth Payne over at the Ottawa Citizen decides that she’s going to gripe about the quality of Santa Clause parade the City of Ottawa puts on these days. Ottawa is the capital of a G8 nation. The country, we are told often enough, that has done the best job of weathering the global financial storm. […]
The day came and went without a hitch. I admit I was nervous, this being my first organized event (sort of, ish,) through the 501st and I didn’t want to besmirch their good name. I was fawning over Katherine, manager of the President’s Choice Cooking School at the Loblaws at Carlton and Church, thanking her […]
You’d expect this of me, seeing how I’m less than 5 days away from the Toronto AIDS Walk, right? Good for you! ACT has been around since 1983. I’ll let that sink in. Nearly 30 years.

Yesterday I got new ink from Kate, over at Passage. I’m super stoked by it (as they say on those reality TV tattoo shows – I think they’re required by law to say “stoked” within every critique, but I digress). It’s my 501st designation, if you’re wondering. Not even a day since getting it, I’m […]
Is it weird SharkBoy found me naked, in the kitchen, bonding molded plastic parts I bought from England ($100) onto a $25 toy gun? Utterly unconcerned about what the neighbours could see?
Sometimes the 501st dresses up for money. But that money never touches our hands – instead of payment, we request a donation to a charity of choice. The 501st has been releasing new Facebook cover images for the last few weeks. This one made me smile because I’m a Sandy! Bad Guys Doing Good Things
I rarely apologize for anything that goes up here. But I feel I do have to apologize for not putting ANYTHING up here in a while. No empty promises that I’ll “do better”, just hope you’ll keep me in your RSS feed. What has been happening with me? A few things… Our Xmas Disney trip […]
