Beautiful Books

The Nature of Evil

Apparently the folks over at Fox are creating a new television show called Lucifer for the 2016 season. Bored with ruling over the underworld Satan decides to give it all up and moves to L.A. When I was a kid one of my favourite comic books was Tomb of Dracula. And one of my favourite story lines was when Dracula became human. To my young eyes it was a fascinating story about good and evil. Sadly, what could be a really interesting idea will no doubt become just another L.A. story peppered with crime, drama and the supernatural instead of exploring a fascinating story.

Saturday Shopping

Yesterday the temperature finally began to rise. This last week we have had cool, chilly mornings and bright sunny days without it ever feeling really warm. After our Saturday morning foray to Kensington for our dry goods and veggies, Mr.T and I headed up to the Stockyards in search of a sun sail for the backyard. Sitting in the backyard last week with Mr.D and Mr.Z we found the sun too strong and our umbrella doesn't provide enough shade for everyone sitting out there. 

While in the Stockyards we checked out Rona, Canadian Tire and Home Depot and sadly did not find any sun sails or sun shades. However we did pick up Nest smoke and CO2 detector at Best Buy. We then walked over to the shops across the way and feeling hungry and tired we stopped at Five Guys for some fries and a burger for Mr.T. Feeling exhausted from we made our way home to install the new Nest alarm. It is beautifully designed and packaged in the Spartan style that is associated with Apple. The process was more complicated than a regular detector involving hooking the device up to our wifi making it the first internet of things (IOT) product we have in the house. I look forward to the day when everything is linked together making our lives easier and more responsive.

A Bad Day

Every once and awhile you have one of those days when you wished you hadn't got out of bed. Although everything seemed alright today I found myself blindsided by the actions of someone else. Gay men are talented at playing passive-aggresive games and when faced with them my first impulse is always to withdraw. Today I found myself dealing with these type of games and feeling like shit I decided, "life is too short" for such feelings and removed myself from the arena.
