    Email to a Landlord

    by  • 9/9/2009 • Halifax • 0 Comments

    Sent the following to the old rental agents at the old CAPREIT building in Halifax. I moved out of suite 2101 in Park Victoria in mid-July, 2009. I provided the person doing the move-out inspection with our new address as part of the process, which he wrote on the inspection report. It’s been well more […]

    This is supposed to be funny or cute? I’d rather drag the couch single-handed out into the back parking lot, pour a can of gas on it and light it up than give it away to some fuckwit. You’ve received the following reply to your “Big Burgundy Couch – Save $50 this weekend!” Ad on […]

    It’s the little things

    The dog and I are just back from our walk, and we met the most interesting example of a born and raised Maritimer when we were on our way out. Okay, so he spoke clear English and wasn’t drunk, and he likely gets his fish from the store, but he has one of the earmarks […]

    Desktop Image – No Quarter

    by  • 9/29/2008 • Halifax, photography • 0 Comments

    Well, the working theory is that the black flag flying over the Citadel in Halifax is either “No Quarter” or “Caution Plague” or, as someone else suggested “We have cookies!” Take your chances, but be prepared that if there are cookies, they couldn’t possibly be good enough to risk it… unless there are two types […]

    Calgary Harbour

    Tania found the following choice piece of clueless commentary among the protectionist responses to the revitalization plans that are being considered for Halifax. Protect the harbour views at all costs. Protect harbour views whenever possible – this is what makes Halifax stand out from the other cities – you canít see the harbour in Edmonton […]

    Caution; I can fight back

    by  • 5/30/2008 • Halifax • 0 Comments

    I’m not as afraid of cars or the people that drive them as I likely should be. When I’m in a pedestrian crossing with a green light, a nice fresh light, and other people, do not come anywhere near me. If you push your metric ton of metal into a crosswalk, hoping to beat the […]

    Some Real Primates In Action

    by  • 5/27/2008 • Halifax, life • 0 Comments

    There was a story the other day in what passes for a newspaper in Halifax. I’d link to it, but the Chronicle Herald has one of the worst web pages I’ve ever seen. They even have RSS feeds, though even the links from those become useless after about 24 hours; there must be big money […]

    So do I pay you, or do you pay me?

    The poster in the above image appeared one evening, and it was proving popular with the students in the area. “Wait a minute, 4 hours of drinking free alcohol and the YOU are going to pay ME? No cover or anything?” Can I get science credit for this? Participate in Research We are currently looking […]

    Peddling Wares in Halifax

    by  • 4/29/2008 • art, Halifax • 0 Comments

    I spent the weekend minding a table full of shiny objects for the absent Tania, who has ventured across country on a mission involving sushi, sanity, and plentiful cheap coffee beans to sustain us in the upcoming year. Sadly, I don’t imagine that there are proper steam buns from China Town in my future; or […]
