The Musings of October 21, 2013.
I had my eyes done today. Well, I am not really making that information up. I had them made up today as part of a photo shoot for the Carleton Place merchants Halloween photos. I am not a retailer, but I was representing As Good as New Thrift Store and going for an evil look. Not a bitchy look mind you- just something wicked.

Kit Duncan has been told many times by the Canadian, Linda Sue Seccaspina, (aka Hellcat) that one of her goals in life was to find a beau for Miss…Continue
It was Fall and the fallacies of song of the fallacious Fallfishes was fallaciously in peril. The fallaciousness of it all was based on the fact that the oldest, Fallicia Fallfish, did not want to sing Falling Leaves by Glen Miller & His Orchestra at the local…Continue
When I was a child my father would bring me to many a rural auction where we would sit for hours on hard wooden benches in some old barn while he bought a lot furniture he didn't need. During that period of time I learned a lot and took that knowledge with me every single time I ventured into a thrift shop or an estate sale. I might not be a mathematician, but I can tell you when things were made and how much they're worth pretty quickly.…Continue
Now that Spring has sprung I am reminded about the day a former neighbour complained about my squirrel collection. I love to feed the black squirrels that gather in my yard and she became convinced I had trained several ninja squirrels to enter her garden after dark and tear up her budding flowers.…
This story sounds like something out of the classic movie "Office Space".
A very clever developer reportedly figured how to get paid to sit and…Continue
Now there's a headline you don't see every day. A seven-month-old Rhesus Macaque wearing a coat was found shopping at a Toronto Ikea. Darwin was later captured on Sunday afternoon and you have to admit he is definitely cuter than the average Ikea shopper.…Continue
The customer is always right, and if you are lactose intolerant something tells me you are going to get angry when a McDonald’s employee hands you a cheeseburger instead of a hamburger.
Just in time for the holiday food cravings. Pizza Hut Canada is launching a perfume through Grip Ltd.- an advertising firm that works with Pizza Hut. It began as a joke on the Pizza Hut Canada Facebook page and some how no one never looked back. Apparently it smells the same as that initial orgasmic smell when you open the pizza…
I used to love the very few times I got to spend with my mother before she died. When she was out of the hospital on her good days; we used to roam the forgotten cemeteries in the countryside. My father sat shaking his head in his old Ford reading his Perry Mason paperbacks as he watched us read one crumbling stone after another.…Continue
This has been a heck of a month for shark attacks all up and down the west coast. Just this week Scott Stevens a 25-year-old surfer was believed to…Continue
Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen wasn't kidding when she sang the lyrics to her hit song “Call Me Maybe”. Friday I read an article that made my ovaries shrivel up and possibly yours will too. You'll never have to leave the house again as long distance romance has taken on a new twist with the company LovePalz who has created a two-way internet pleasure machine…Continue
Icon Edward Gorey, the author and illustrator of melancholia is one of my favourites in the literary world. He never had any children of his own but that did not stop him from drawing lots of them in such books as The Gashleycrumb…
eBay is getting out of the magical Dear Abby business and effective August 30th the following items will not be allowed to be sold on eBay.
eBay's new prohibited items list includes: advice, spells, curses, hexing, conjuring, magic;…Continue
There is no doubt that businessman Hans Kristian Rausing adored his wife. Not only did he love Eva, they also seemed to share a bad drug habit together. When police stopped Rausing on a traffic violation on July 9 they found illegal drugs in his car and decided to search the…
This week I finally got to read an article from the SF Weekly that had been sitting around for almost a year. I had been completely fascinated that someone at age 19 could have a cover piece as the most successful murder groupie in San Francisco and needed to read it when I had time.
I specialized in dating the bad boys of the world, but had any of them turned out to be serial killers? Samantha Spiegel from San Francisco has written many letters…
Tyson the runaway wallaby has been spotted west of the city of Edmonton, Alberta and has a whopping $1000 reward on his head. The former pet of "Edmontonian" Stacie Barr was spotted last week in Parkland County by Leslie and Doyle Moncrieff. Was it really a wallaby or just a few local traveling giant rabbits?…Continue
What do you do when you just can't find the right politician to run the land? The town of Talkeetna, Alaska has found the purrfect candidate by picking the cat from Nagley's General Store. Stubbs, who is a part-manx cart, has been mayor for 15 years when the town wrote his name in after…
High gas prices are a complaining point to us all each day and a Nashville man should probably save his complaints for a lawyer.
Last Friday Ray Crockett pulled up to a Mapco gas station because, like us all they had the cheapest gas. Crockett filled up, swiped his card to pay, and grabbed the receipt showing he'd been charged $30.00. Days later Crockett went to use his credit card again, and the payment declined. His bank statement shows he'd…
High on the scrotum pole of odd stories this week comes this doozie out of Las Vegas.
Famed Dr. Oz has offered 100-pound scrotum owner Welsey Warren Jr. free removal surgery in exchange for exclusive interview rights. Warren declined the offer because allegedly he does not wish to lose the fame he has acquired. This rare lower condition creates excess water fluid that collects around…Continue
