Airports and idiots

This week was a doozy. I had to fly to London England for the day, yes folks, for ONE DAY. I live in Toronto so it meant a 7 hour flight on Wednesday, arriving at my hotel at 10pm local time (a 5 hour time difference). Up Thursday morning for an all day meeting then back on the plane Friday to come... Sign in to see full entry.

And we wonder....

The city I live in is wonderfully multicultural. You can literally eat your way from one side of the globe to the other by strolling into different neighbourhoods. It is not uncommon to see women in hijab, greek men in crisp linen, Italian Nonas all in black and the list goes on. Unfortunately there... Sign in to see full entry.

Ontario Hydro crooks!

For those of you who have followed Wiley's trials and tribulations with the crooked group at our energy provider, you'll know what a bunch of nincompoops they are. There is a petition circulating online to tell them just what we think of them! www.petitiononline.com/ohdrc/petition.html If you live... Sign in to see full entry.

How do you know when you're baked?

A little story of what NOT to do on your Christmas vacation... Against my better judgement, I was washing pots and pans after cooking the turkey (I like to delegate that job but the delegates were scarce). After filling the sink with nice hot, soapy water, I plunged my hands in to grab the first... Sign in to see full entry.

Energy spurt

Not sure why but this weekend I have had a tremendous energy spurt. Usually when I am battling bronchitis I feel like I've been hit by a truck, wanting only to sleep. Both mornings I was up at 5:30 (albeit with a coughing fit) and started tackling the list of things that needed doing. Here we are at... Sign in to see full entry.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho.....

Let me start this story by saying, I am not a good shopper. I'm not fond of crowds, don't like to browse and that canned music they play in malls has been known to make me wacko. I was getting very anxious as I looked at the calendar this week and realized Christmas was but a week or so away and I... Sign in to see full entry.

How can exhaustion be this dramatic in just two days?

Yesterday I got a call at work to say my Mom was being taken by ambulance to the hospital after a fall in the parking lot of her doctor's office. After six hours of waiting, it turns out she has broken her arm, right up at the top where the bone enters the shoulder joint. It can't be casted so she... Sign in to see full entry.

Back from the land of the little people

I didn't see any lepracauns but I did meet a very nice taxi driver who kept me entertained with his hilarious commentary on: Irish taxes (there is mortal decay in 'dis land at the highest levels of 'dis government) housing costs (god save us and how can we survive) and cemetaries (sure and we have...

I can't get to sleep!!

I have to be up at 4:30am tommorrow to get my flight to Ireland. I can't sleep, I've meditated, tried all my relaxation techiques and even counted sheep (kinda fitting considering where I'm going). Nothing is working! Sign in to see full entry.

Off to the land of the little people (again)

The company I work for is relocating the head office to Ireland. I've known this for a while now but the plan is being activated. I'll be over there for a week, interviewing and looking for office space. The bizarre twist is I will be interviewing for my replacement! The company asked me to move to...
