Fat: State of Mind or State of Body?

January 27, 2012


A friend of mine posted this link/blog post on facebook, but I didn’t respond there because I didn’t want to muddy up her post with my weird-ass thoughts, which always meander and tend toward heavy-handed pragmatism. Read that article before reading this bloated one, since this is more or less a response. There are two […]

Paleo in the News

October 18, 2011


(featured image is Primal Girl‘s banner, used because that’s where I found these videos, thanks to Richard Nikoley of Free the Animal pointing the way, and she’s in two of the five videos.) In case anyone missed it (which is quite likely), CBS News San Francisco did a 5-part look at Paleo living, and it was approached […]

Winter is Coming. . . .

October 13, 2011


Fuck you, Starks. This is Canada and when winter approach’eth, it fucking approach’eth.  Every year, too, not every 10. However, let me get to the point: With winter comes snow, sub-zero temperatures and miserable fucking weather all ’round.

August 25, 2011


Double-entendre intended, perhaps. Nothing too crazy to report. The big news is that I have a job interview with a small design and marketing firm tomorrow. RAWR! Very excited about that. I’ve been an editor for four years now, and it’s been a while since I’ve flexed the kinds of creative muscles that marketing requires. […]

I was thinking ‘What the fuck’s a tautology?’ If I have to reach for a dictionary, it’ll be so I can brain you.” Touché. Levity aside, people interested in bettering their […]

A Practice Lost to the Ages

August 1, 2011


First, I only just got my home internet working again after 19 days without it, so sorry for the lapse! (Thank the gods for smartphones and 3G.) There are a number of posts I’m looking forward to writing and I will get to ’em. . . . eventually. For today, however, I thought I’d chat […]

Of Mud and Barbed Wire

July 4, 2011


First, let me wish American readers a happy 4th of July! Don’t nobody blow any limbs off. Second, this is a bit of a long post. My usual propensity to ramble is only exasperated by my enthusiasm for the subject: The Spartan Race (3+ mile/12+ obstacle “sprint”). July 3 was one helluva day. The Ottawa race was held […]
