Happy New Year!

See you on the other side. Half an hour earlier in Newfoundland and some parts of Labrador, of course.

Can you see me now?

In the Occupationally Suitable Name Department, note the name of the third consultant on this page.

Peel me a grape

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

You know you're getting old when...

Your friendly, neighbourhood pharmacy sends you a complimentary sample product, addressed specifically to you, not just some random "put a sample in everyone's mail box" and it's these:

Which, if you can't read the print from this photo, is this:

Yes, people. I'm now the proud owner of a sample pack of Poise. So that's nice.

What's next, Depends?

I give you... Santa badgers...

There will be a brief intermission...

Whilst I immerse myself in a week of Messiah rehearsals/performances. Do not be alarmed. Just chat amongst yourselves. In lieu of light refreshments, I give you this.

(Skip ahead to 1:30 if you prefer. You won't miss a thing.)

There's no business like snow business

Click on "24 hours" on the bottom border of the webcam image to watch the storm move in.

Riveting, I KNOW. You can thank me later.


Men. Even the cute ones, you can't trust to show up when you need them.

Am I doomed to spent the rest of my life alone?
