  • The Coolest Canadian

    In honour of Canada’s 140th birthday and this holiday long weekend, I think it is time to recognize some Canadian talent. I think one of the coolest guys on the planet is Canadian. This guy has a presence that comes through the television screen . I knew it the first time I saw him and […]

  • Definition of Cool

    Cool is a very versatile word. We all know that the word has a lot more uses that those just relating to temperature. Here is a detailed definition that I got from Bartleby; ADJECTIVE:Inflected forms: cool·er, cool·est1. Neither warm nor very cold; moderately cold: fresh, cool water; a cool autumn evening. 2.

  • Last Hold Out

    Sometimes I think I am the only person left in the world who doesn’t have a cell phone. I had one for a short period of a time a few years ago. I found that I didn’t need one. I have an answering machine at home. Nothing is so important that I need to be […]

  • Smog City

    The smog was so thick that I could actually see it in the air, sticking to the city as I drove over the Skyway Bridge yesterday. It is always worse when the heat gets extremely unbearable. If we are issued a heat advisory, a smog advisory goes with it. It is like the two are […]

  • Computer Problems

    I can’t seem to get my mom’s computer to work right. It takes me forever to log onto my blog. The screens don’t load up properly and sometimes no text even appears. The only way I can actually get it to work is by going through a back door type of way. It is really […]

  • Teacher Blues

    I’ll always seem to get depressed on the last day of school. It happens every year. I stand around and look at an empty classroom. The walls are bare. The desks are pushed to the side of the room. The resources are all boxed up. It seems unnervingly empty. I don’t want to leave it. […]

  • More Rude Awakenings

    I am a light sleeper which can sometimes be a pain. Like this past week, I was rudely awakened in the middle of a good night’s sleep. I could hear a faint buzzing sound. I lay there in bed thinking that it was absolutely crazy that I was woken up by a tiny little insect. […]

  • Fuel Exhausted

    My recent obsession flared up for a while but my fuel is just about exhausted. Just in case you haven’t been reading my blog, I have become obsessed with blogging. I love reading and writing entries and responses. I have found four blogs that I really enjoy reading and you can visit the sidebar to […]
