Do Smiley Faces have Noses?

16 12 2009

December 16, 2009

One day after the mandatory “Winter Snow Tire” law in Quebec.

9 days before Christmas.

66 days after my birthday.

And well honestly over a year since my last post.

Its not that I haven’t thought about it.  Or wanted to.  Simply put, life got in the way of blogging.  Which in the grand ‘ol scheme of things isn’t quite such a bad thing.

I started blogging because frankly my life was pretty darn boring.  Same ‘ol job, with no prospect of changing.  Same ‘ol schedule, same ‘ol plans, same ‘ol meals. . . . same ‘ol everything.

Blogging was a positive and fun outlet for me, gave me something to look forward to.  I spent a whole year blogging at least one post every day.  It was quite an under taking and I was proud of myself for finishing that.

Last night I was speaking to my hometown bestie, Christine – and she was telling me a story about cousin and the hilarious happenings of her customer service job.  Christine has been trying to get her cousin to write a book about the people she crosses paths with for about a year.  Christine tells me cousin is a no-holds-barred George Carlin-esque kind of personality, of course she is a little more woman, a little less grey, and of course a lot less dead then then late Mr. Carlin.  Cousin has been mulling over the idea, and finally though, “I could put my hand at blogging”.  Christine told her about my blog, and how I could help her get it up and going.  This of course got me thinking – its kinda bad to suggest to someone to check out a dead blog.  And her I am, resurrecting the dead.   This was the push I needed to get back on the horse.

So today I was posed a question, though through a status update on Facebook.  Do Smiley Faces have Noses?

I suggested to Aaron, who posted the above picture, that perhaps this smiley face (who doesn’t actually appear to be smiling at all) that he may have a birth or beauty mark, like Cindy Crawford.

————

Since my last hoorah of constant posting, a few things have changed in my life. Without going mass amounts of details – the most significate.

1.  The court case at Job1.  I was advised to lay low in my online postings.  People on the other side were reading my (personal) blog, and the Job1 legal team thought it best I didn’t give them ammo.  (I’m still not sure how posting about celebrities, sewing, cats and dance shows would really have helped/hindered a court case).  Who won that anyways?

2.  My S.I.Ls car accident.  It changed alot.

3.  Job1 became old job.  I am no longer then, and considerably more healthy now for it.

My life has come almost full circle, and though I won’t admit to being back to a boring life – I’m certainly more calm, rested with more time to allow for *some* often blogging.

Thank you to all the readers who have emailed me, sent me messages and posted comments to during my hiatus.

I hope you will all welcome me back.

It feels nice to put pen to paper, or keys to screen. . . . . . .

Tell Them That You Love Them.

1 04 2008

2008 has already proved to be a trying year. . . .
At Christmas my paternal grandmother was diagnosed with Terminal Cancer, and is expected to pass away before may.  At almost 30 I’ve never suffered the loss of a family member.  I wonder how I will deal. . . .

And as many of you know, this past week my sister in law Kate was in a horrible car accident, caused by the carelessness of a drunk driver.  She is currently in the ICU.  Updates about Kate’s condition can be read on Paul’s website at www.paulgraham.ca, I have some updates on my FaceBook page as well.

Finding out about Kate’s accident was gut wrenching – simply put it made me realise just how important Kate is to me, and how much I love her.  The sad thing is, I don’t think I’ve ever told Kate that.

We only got a few brief minutes to see Kate, and I had a minute on my own with her.  I held her hand and told her I loved her.  I really do hope she heard me.

Get better soon sister, I have so much I want to tell you. . . .





Look at What the Cat Dragged In

1 04 2008

look at what the cat dragged in

Hello everyone.

Its been a really long time. I’m sorry. I’ve missed my blogging.

I won’t go into a lot of details right now about my long long absence, I’ll simply sum it up by saying. . .

Life got in the way of blogging.

Glad to be back to blogging, I need this outlet right now. I don’t think I will be here in the full force I was before, but I’ll be here.

Love,

Joey

Forgot the Potato Chips!

23 09 2007

Colin just got home, he went to the store to get the rest of the supplies needed for tonight’s television extravaganza. . . and he forgot the chips.

I wonder if we could send one of the moggies out to the depaneur like this chap . . . .

Wishful thinking. . . .





Cats on Sunday

23 09 2007

With the soon to be historic playing of the Family Guy Star Wars episode just mere hours away, I wanted to get a post in before the festivities began.

Meow Meow Meow! (That’s Thank You in Moggie)

23 09 2007

 http://www.bannersink.com/product_images/thank-you-cat.jpg

Marty and I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who sent well wishes for recovery.  Although we aren’t out of the woods (we are still waiting for additional test results and we still have to do the FIV and FeLV tests too) he is feeling much better.

He is up and about, playing and he is has his appetite back.  All very good signs.  We have our fingers and paws crossed that he has a severe kidney infection and nothing else. . .  . .

I appreicate that everyone was so understanding with me.  Marty, Minou and Manny are more than just cats.  They really are family.  I don’t have children of my own, I don’t live close to any of my family or life-long friends. . . . they make the pain of living so far away from people I love and care for most much easier to handle.

This was the first time any of my cats have been sick.  Those that know me know how anally retentive I am about pets and cats, and know the great lengths I go to keep them safe and healthy.

Part of me felt a failure with Marty falling ill, like I wasn’t holding up my part of the bargain of keeping my moggies safe and healthy. . . .

I think with the amount of purring, headbuts and kisses Marty has bestowed on me the past couple of days, its fair to say he has forgiven me.

http://images.jupiterimages.com/common/detail/00/34/22143400.jpg

I will update everyone on Marty’s progress.

Thanks again for thinking about my moggie!
