A Year and a Day

January 28, 2013


Wow. Way to go, me. You let 366 days go by without a single post. Idiot. Well, here I am. Back again. Kinda. I think Christmas is a rough time for most Primal/Paleo/health-minded people, and “Christmas” tends to include about two weeks leading up to Xmas and, for me, about five weeks after. Yeah. Ouch. […]

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 […]

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. You sure as shit can’t go running around barefoot or get in [cheap] frequent movement. Also, winter […]

An August Update

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. […]

You’ll Never Be the You You Can’t Be

August 4, 2011


. . .wha? You’re probably thinking “Thanks for that pithy, borderline-tautology, you Canadian jackass.” And now you might be thinking “I wasn’t thinking that! 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 […]
