A Keeper

Someone who keeps your memories, and your secrets.

Your person.

Another tax deadline approaches

All Income claimed
Even when it meant filing as a small business
All RRSP and Mutual funds entered appropriately
All tax forms filed and submitted on time
Another year successfully survived,
with a little help from Mom.

And thanks to the persons responsible for this ordeal,
all chicken cannons loaded and ready to fire.


Shredded paper - the initial attempts to file taxes using the manual method, before giving up and using a program to file them online
Keyboard keys - from all the keyboards broken while attempting to fill out taxes online
Human hair - pulled out during intense periods of frustration
Blood, sweat and tears - saved up from working so hard to generate income, only to have to pay for it twice
Fake KD - what we'll be eating
Ketchup - only thing we can afford to go with the fake KD

B to the fricken 'er

The temperature of my trailer is registering at fricken freezing! I'm so programming in my foul weather gear right now ;o)

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

~T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

On biking to work

It's not the getting here that's the hard part, it's the ride home.

Rock your socks off

Change the things that matter to you now, cause you never know when you won't be able to do anything anymore. I'm thankful for every day that I put socks on in the morning. ~Doofus

Too much

You're doing too much, when you have to tell yourself that you're not going to work tomorrow so that you have time to catch up on everything you need to do in order to fall asleep... only to wake up and go to work anyways.

Self, please slow down... or catch up

Is believing that what you do is making a difference in this world, sometimes you have no idea whether it is working or not, but you know that it has to be better than doing nothing.

I'm drowning in the sunshine...

The sun is streaming in my window at work and falling on the desk where I'm writing *smiles*


It takes the smallest of gestures, the briefest of moments to make someones day... the secret is that you may never know which moment.

This way I spend my day
is not where I want to be
The time spent here feels wasted
not forward towards my destiny

There are so many options in this world
New things to see and do
So many opportunities to learn
things that are brand new

I want to do! Try everything
Leave nothing left undone
In this world of day to day
Who is it that has won?

We all have choices that we make
every single day
The one thing we control for sure
our reactions along the way

So if you don't like where you are
or who you've come to be
Pause and keep that worth keeping
redesign yourself its free

We can reinvent ourselves
every second of every day
The only thing preventing us
are the excuses that we make

Experience changes our perception
the way we look at life
But we still choose how we react
to suffering pain and strife

Stop and listen to your spirit
Only you can set it free
When I look within myself
The only one there is me

When you find your soulmate
you'll know it when its true
When you look within yourself
your spirit will now hold two

Get outta my way

Everything is impossible, until someone does it for the first time. ~S

Dear Cosmos,

Whoever is sucking the energy out of me... can you please ask them to reduce the volume of suck to a manageable level? I promise I'll last much longer as a renewable energy source. Thanks.

Why driving and talking on your cell phone is illegal...

It bloody well should be, I just bought whole goats milk instead of skim normal moo-juice because I was trying to grocery shop and talk to my Mom.

So thanks Mom for confirming that it was a good price to buy tomatoes... next time I'll ask about milk too...

*le sigh* I guess it doesn't taste that bad though, being raised on powdered milk and all...
