Just to be clear, sperm and white stuff are two separate things, eh? Yeah, we don't even realize the snow is gone until after the hockey playoffs are over. Only in Canada.

Well not for lack of trying on Mark Cuban's part. He's more of a showman than any NBA player I've seen. I think lots of folks were pulling for the Mavs, a little tired of all the showboating going on with James, Bosh and Wade. Love the jokes like "Why did James never go to college? Because he would have always had problems with the finals."

I'm sad that the Canucks didn't win, but glad that all this playoff stuff is over. Of course we have baseball to look forward to in October (or is it now December?).


Heh, heh - the sperm donor daddy card. That's a good one!

Oh, and Happy Father's Day to you!!

Yeah, the epitome of insect land. Now there've been times I've had my head bitten off, but thank God not literally.

I was sad at the loss too. Sadder over the rioting that went on after the game.

Thanks for the Father's Day wishes. Be spending the afternoon with my kids and grandkids. Cool.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
