Rules to Date Me

  Three men created POF profiles. The Firefighter. The Race Car Driver. The Farmer. Each of them were enamoured with Heather.  And Lisa.  They haven’t met Sophie or Roxy.  Two are intrigued with Sasha.  One is a little nervous of her, I think.

Sunday Daydreams

Today was a perfect day to luxuriate in bed, my head in the clouds. I partied too hardy late Friday and into the wee hours of Saturday with dozens and dozens of my favourite people to celebrate at my Goodbye Cancer! party.  The live band Juggernaut was on fire and the crowd was appreciative.  We […]

Virginity wasn’t a stigma that came into style until the Roman Empire somewhere around 27BC to 330AD.  The Romans oppressed female sexuality to “protect” the stability and significance of families, social order, their rich coffers, and the state of the nation.

No Problem

I wasn’t sure if I should write about him … because he isn’t mine to write about.  We broke up almost 3 decades ago after dating and living together for over two years.  He was my first love. We met at work.  I was the youngest of interns – barely 20-something – and was invited […]
