Elections in a month in Quebec. More and more rumours of an upcoming federal election too. What’s a political atheist to do?


This morning on my way to the bus, I felt a smidge-of-a-tinge-of-a-possible-potential-perhaps-if-we’re-really-phenomenally-lucky-in-the-far-future-spring-might-actually-decide-to-try-and-show-the-edge-of-its-nose in the air. YAY!


know I’ve mentioned it before, but what is this need of men to spread their legs when they sit? Especially on the bus. What! Does your equipment need to breathe? I think not. You are not alone in that seat, deal with it. Or I might have to amputate said equipment.


Strange experience over the weekend. I saw an ex who I hadn’t seen in about 10 years. It was a cathartic experience because instead of the resentment I usually feel*, on seeing that he hasn’t changed a bit a wave of indifference (tinged with a bit of pity for him, go figure) washed over me. Then a wave of relief that I got out, because I shudder to think of the type of person I would have become if I hadn’t traded him in for Mr. Jazz.

* Yeah, I know, it’s been over 20 years. So, despite my usual grudglessness** I’ve held onto one grudge in my life… Sue me!

** I can honestly say that this is the only grudge I’ve had for any length of time. I usually just don’t have the energy to hang on to these things. In his case I made an exception. If you knew him, you’d understand why.

    “What is this need of men to spread their legs when they sit?”It’s to allow it to settle, not breath. A man’s business is not supposed to be pushed up, expecially while sitting.

    If it’s who I think it is, I don’t blame you one bit. He was definitely not one of your success stories. ;o)

  4. Jazz says:

    Steve – sounds like a planTicknart – So, because you need to “settle” I have to get squished into a corner?BB – It is who you think. And he is no longer an a-hole he’s a pathetic a-hole. But to his credit, I met Mr. Jazz because of him.

  5. ticknart says:

    Well, not because I need to settle, but because a thoughtless asshole who forgets he’s sitting next to someone on a public vehicle needs to settle. I don’t think it’s a good reason for men to spread their legs, it’s just the way it is.

    Oh yeah, you told me about mr. wonderful. You should amputate -his- equipmment. That would be cool

    Your comments re your ex could have been mine re mine. But I do try and generally succeed in not hanging on. And I also feel much relief that I am no longer there.Cheers,Ian

  8. Jazz says:

    Tick – Ah, the inscrutable ways in which things are just the way they are….Choochoo – Bwwwwahahahahahahahaa. *clears throat* Um sorry. Evil Choochoo.Ian – Yeppers, the relief. Every time, it’s the relief…
