onebigpear: livelaughawesome: “I’m a Canadian. We’re a quiet bunch; prone to enjoying hockey, drinking stronger beer than our friends south of the border, and lovers of fries smothered in cheese curds and gravy. We also, apparently, have an inferiority complex when it comes to being evil dirt bags, because we’ve decided to pass our very own version of SOPA up here. Only better* ...

atsween: I was walking to work when I saw a father pushing his son in a stroller. He noticed the light was turning green, so he started to run to catch it. I could see a huge smile break out on his son’s face as they zipped along. As they passed me, I could hear a tiny joyful “Wheeeee!” And I realized —…

Man Says Ghost Punched Wife →
So, this happened: Police in Fond du Lac, Wis., arrested Michael West, 41, on Jan. 15, after responding to a disturbance call. West’s wife told the cops that her husband twice attempted to strangle her and that he struck her in the face when she attempted to call 911. West told authorities that his wife sustained injuries as a result of several falls. But when an officer pressed the...

At first I thought this was awsome just for the Hellboy camp, but if you click through to the TrackersPDX site they have Ranger camp and ZOMBIE camp: Welcome to Training CampZ. Here you will learn all the essentials you need to survive in a world fast being overrun by zombies. We offer courses for both the youth and adult of this post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland.

Me: (looking at little piece of plastic retrieved from Watson’s mouth) What is this? Watson: I don’t know what you are talking about. Me: This! This piece of…what did this come off of? Is this a latch? Are there more bits scattered about? Watson: Dunno. Give it here and I can try to… Me: Nice try.
I am increasingly convinced there are only so many people out there. Only so many _kinds_ of people. In my last job, as with this one, I worked with a blond Sarah (with an H!) who loves her dog, her man, and the colour pink all to an ecstatic and slightly scary degree. Who got engaged after a long relationship, got married one year later and took her husband’s name. (Making them two out of...

Took Watson on a group dog walk hosted by the local Bark ‘n Fitz tonight, which was a roaring (and barking, and yapping and wagging) success. Watson had never seen so many dogs in one place in his life, and had his reservations, but I just kept him moving and told him he could do it till he got the lay of the land. The smallest dog there was a 11 week old Chorkie who weighed about as much...
Steamed buns! →
I’ve loved steamed buns since watching Jackie Chan’s Drunken Master in high school. I’m a big fan of little things, stuffed things, and tasty things, and the combination of little stuffed tasty things was just too much for my imagination to resist. Unlike most things I fell in love with in movies, these tasted just as good as I’d always imagined! Edit: the title is a link...
