This is the fourteenth in a series about the strangers that I meet in my life.
When I was 6 years old my mother brought me to a very old theatre in Montreal to see the Disney film “Old Yeller”. I remember wearing a red wool coat, itchy matching leggings and half way through the movie I peed my pants. The…Continue

What follows is a series of exchanges between myself and tech (non)support at AT&T, my cellphone provider.
It is fairly obvious that they are at the same level of expertise as those at a place callod OS.
This level is low and lower.
I pay almost all my bills online.
AT&T is one of them.
When I attempt to click on "billing", it times…Continue
I don't think there's a country without its own unique slang words. England is famous for some of the best. A few examples would be “shite,” “wank,” “bugger,” “cheeky,” or “bloody,” as in, “You're bloody right and a smart bugger too!”…Continue

It is 4:35 PM and I am already in my pajamas and have my pillow on the couch. I am honestly ready for a lot of royal action. The "Royal Truck" pulled up an hour ago and Tink the cat and his pal dropped by.
They are dressed for the occasion and will only stay until Ryan Seacrest comes on as Tink prefers to blog with the E channel backing him. All they could talk about was the 15,000 canapés that were being served at the reception. They…Continue
Many years ago my first husband and I owned Service Stations. They were not called gas stations because we provided full service care for your car. We hired top trained car mechanics and over the years some very colorful characters worked for us. One in particular had tattoos all over his…Continue
The Royal Wedding is but a day away, and the Official Program for the wedding has been made available online. The program reveals the first hymn to be sung at the ceremony - 'Guide me, O thou great Redeemer' - the same hymn sung at Princess Diana's funeral. It also includes a note from William and Kate and the full Order of…Continue

Daylight had broken, and the dining room was now silent and glowing. Whatever had possessed the night air that filled the pink hued room, was now gone. Why was it was there to begin with? Was it desperation for the loss of love?
A long time has passed since the death of the old couple, that lived at Springside Hall for fifty…Continue
The other night Daniel and I were having our customary glass of wine before dinner and he was munching on mixed nuts. A small discussion of the various types of nuts ensued and I mentioned that my favorites were the almonds, macadamias and pecans but that I wasn't too crazy about brazils.…Continue
It's only three days away, and on a pure whim, you've decided to throw your very own Royal Wedding viewing party. And why not? As commonwealth subjects, surely we are entitled to give Wills and Kate the proper send-off.
The Louisville Slugger shown in the photograph below is the 180 Paul O’Neill model. It is one hundred percent American made and yes that is the same Yankees player that Kramer had to get to hit two home runs so he could get the Steinbrenner birthday card back for George. But none of that really matters right now because I am furious.
This baseball bat has been used in a few sporting events but mostly it has been used for self protection. It is…Continue

Here is where the world would die.
And where it all began, a tight little place, dark, mood lit for those who wished such thing, not to be seen much less be heard, somewhere on the edge, a place of madness on acid, dancing in a dreary rain that fell against their sweaty faces sometimes in the late hours, cleaning the streets and the walls of the blood and sweat that sat there for weeks,…Continue
My name is Katrina Darling and I am the real footloose and fancy free cousin of Kate Middleton. I am the closest thing to porn that the Royal Family will ever meet. As Prince Harry said,
I offered my services of…Continue
A long time ago when our beloved Princess Diana was going to get married she had to take etiquette lessons from the late Queen Mum. Now that "Mum" has passed who is going to steer young "Waity Katy" in the right royal direction?
I figure as a fellow commoner I might be the one to take over the job. Yesterday I immediately sent my resume to the Royal Palace asking them for the position.
