Monday Stuff

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.

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)

Jazz said...

Steve - sounds like a plan

Ticknart - 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.

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

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...
