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.

Bob the Wealthy Widower

17 09 2007

Bob, a 70-year-old, extremely wealthy widower, shows up at the Country Club with a breathtakingly beautiful and very sexy 25 year-old blonde who knocks everyone’s socks off with her youthful sex appeal and charm and who hangs over Bob’s arm and listens intently to his every word.

His buddies at the club are all aghast. At the very first chance, they corner him and ask, “Bob, how’d you get the trophy girlfriend?”

Bob replies, “Girlfriend? She’s my wife!”

They’re knocked over, but continue to ask. “So, how’d you persuade her to marry you?”

“I lied about my age”, Bob replies.

“What, did you tell her you were only 50?”

Bob smiles and says, “No, I told her I was 90.”

Traffic Songs

13 09 2007

https://i2.wp.com/www.chom.com/themes/sri/chom/logo.png

Recently I’ve started listening to my husband’s radio station “CHOM 97.7“, its a classic rock station and is quite a soft and mellow change from my normal listenings to one of CHOM’s sister stations with its barrage of new music, repeative riffs and bass-filled banging tunes. My ears have stopped ringing and I am finally hearing the music.

I spend a lot of time stuck in traffic, so people watching has become an afternoon hobby.

I have discovered over my time of Montreal traffic people watching that there is a secret society, a club if you will, among fellow “stuck in traffic-ers”. This club – similar to the Free Masons – is known, but never spoken of. Perhaps a fight club with out the fighting. (Just don’t tell Edward Norton I’ve broken the first law of fight club, please).

CHOM has shown me the light, and let me enter this secret yet widely visable club.

I’ve often questioned what the heck people are singing to when in the car – and now I know. Its CHOM.

Over the past several weeks, I have been conducting rigerous experiments to confirm these findings.

At every stop light and stop sign. On the 40 past St Jean in the Gridlock, or on Des Anciens Combattants Boulevard in Ste Anne de Bellevue in stopped traffic jams I see them, the members of the secret society belting out tunes, jamming on air guitars, and keeping beat on steering wheel drums.

I thought this station that keeps all armchair (or driver’s seat) disc jockeys in unison was a fable, a story. . .
I see CHOM listeners everywhere. They are many. . . .

I’ve let my hair down, and tuned my air guitar. . . . .I’m in the Spirit to Rock!

And Revisionist history is pretty good, too.

Take a Seat?

3 09 2007

Have you ever been out somewhere and so tired on your feet you needed to rest, lean up on a wall or find a place to sit?

Especially in the “big cites” in Europe, you a likely to be greeted by any of the following deterrents.

Found this website by chance during a routine web-‘trolling’, they cleverly called these deterrents the “Anti-Sits”

They Think I’m in a Same-Sex Partnership

18 08 2007

https://i0.wp.com/news.bbc.co.uk/olmedia/1410000/images/_1410275_gaysholdinghands300.jpg

Colin and I were out today doing errands (buying tupperware and a weedwacker to be precise)

We were chatting about how we talk to one another, as I was remarking how even when there is just the two of us, I still use his name as a talk.  . . “What do you think about ‘this’ Colin?”  “What would you like for dinner Colin” “Colin pick up your socks in the bedroom”.   Since he is usually the only one in the room the need for using his name is mute.

I asked him how often he uses my name in a day, and he says not very often.  I’m puzzled, why not Colin? I ask him.

Well, saying “My wife” is a heck of a lot easier to explain than “Joey” – everyone thinks I’m in a gay partnership!

We ARE in Montreal, after all. . .  .

Corona Inspired Quilt

28 07 2007

I’m going to a baby shower today. This is the quilt I made last night for the occasion. . . .The first time Dad-to-be is pretty cool guy, and he loves Corona beer, so the colours in the quilt are inspired from that! Plus it gave me an excuse to buy fabric with FLAMES on it! 😉

Marty, Minou and Manny all approve. . . .

He and his girlfriend are expecting a baby boy in September. . . .

Make it Legal, eh, Man

10 07 2007

According to a report by Reuters,  Canadians smoke more weed than other industrialized countries, touting an impressive statistic that 16.8 percent of all Canadians between the ages of 15 and 65 have toked reef in the past year.   This is apparently more than 4 times the global rate.

With powerful and moving statistics like these, its no wonder the pot-heads are out in full force campaigning for the legalization of their favorite non-medicinal plant.

I for one am impressed something got the lazy pot-heads off their asses. . . .

Monday Melee (July 9 2007)

9 07 2007

Monday Melee

A Fracas Project! You’re invited to participate. Get details and see the participant list here.

————————————————————–

The Monday Melee Questions:

The exercise edition

1. The Misanthtropic: Name something (about humanity) you absolutely hate.

I wish good health was simply about BEING healthy, not trying to obtain someone else’s perfect body. I am, and will always be, “thick”. I cannot be a size “0” without being ill. I could be one rocking size 12 though. Thats an obtainable goal.

————————————————————–
2. The Meretricious: Expose something or someone that’s phony, fraudulent or bogus.

Get slim quick schemes. You’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it twice, now your going to hear it again. Healthy diet choices and exercise are the only sure-fire way to lose weight and get in better shape.

————————————————————–
3. The Malcontent: Name something you’re unhappy with.

That I’ve let myself go.

————————————————————–
4. The Meritorious: Give someone credit for something and name it if you can.

Colin. He wants to help me. (And help himself too as a result)

————————————————————–
5. The Mirror: See something good about yourself and name it.

I made the first step today. Colin and I went for an after dinner bike ride. Only about 20 minutes or so, but it felt good to make that first step.

————————————————————–
6. The Make-Believe: Name something you wish for.

That it easier to make change.

Naan Bread

6 07 2007

I have a big deadline at work coming up, so I’ve been staying later to get more work done.

I intended to stay to about 7-8pm on Friday, so I had less to do during the weekend. I called Colin to confirm where/when I was going to pick him up (we’re still a ‘one car’ family)

He says to me (in the funniest little grumpy man voice) “I don’t want to stay at work, they are having curry and someone always eats my Naan bread”.

I could just imagine him sitting there, slouched in his chair with his armed crossed, pouting.

Yes, my 31 year old big, full bearded husband – pouting.

Does anyone remember “The Dinosaurs”??

NOT THE MAMA. . . . I’M THE BABY

Who took my Naan bread. . . .
