lol are those all her hair ties on the floor in the background?

hahaha yes. what you see there is just a few of them. They’re everywhere! I’ve lost count of how many are under the fridge and under the oven.


She was licking this bag for like 20 minutes

Yeah doesn’t Canada require you to get sponsored by a legal citizen to even begin applying for citizenship yourself. Good luck!!

yeah. that’s my wife :)

ugh I have to sort out this police background certificate this week. It’s such a pain in the ass because I can’t pay online. They require some kind of cheque and hey-ho, I’m thousands of miles away from my bank.

I’ll also have to mail the thing to my mum so she can get someone with a reputable job description who knows me to sign the form too.

I really wish we knew about this before we came out here.

people on buses who get their house keys out before getting off the bus. Why? What does this achieve?

oh my god. I posted this in October 2011. this still annoys the shit out of me.

It’s a safety measure :) Well, here anyway.
We are always advised to…

Also where are these people getting off the bus? Are they young? Are they women? Are the just people who feel the need to protect themselves in this situation. Is it dark? Is the area not well traveled? I was taught to carry my keys between my knuckles if I felt unsafe at night somewhere. Maybe they’re trying to keep themselves safe.

Cherrylisa pointed that out and cleared it up for me, as it was something that had simply not crossed my mind.  However, no. it wasn’t all young women, in fact, some are big burly men. no it wasn’t always dark, and they would depart in a relatively safe area. 
So yes, thanks for pointing out something someone already had.

so I just let Vespa in and noticed this weird greasy patch on her back. I sniffed it and it smells of oil or something so I just got her comb and some flea shampoo in a bowl of water and combed it out.

I did the rest of her whilst I was at it because I haven’t in a while and I didn’t get a single flea off of her.

Which is good news I think. I think the baking soda with salt trick really worked. Along with the mint plant and even though we only caught 2 fleas in our flea traps, the smell must repel them away anyway, so I’ve left them out for that purpose alone.

Well. That’s a relief! No fleas for Vespa and no hole in my wallet for me.

This is a point I don’t think I ever thought about, thank you for bringing that to my attention!

I used to keep a pen in my pocket that I clutched until I was home. just in case

threw a shoe at a spider from the other size of the room. my aim is deadly :3

and upon doing that, I remembered some gigantic spiders that I used to encounter in England.

ugh. gross things.

:( do you have like an army surplus store around you? maybe not steel toed work style but still tough? i hate civilians wearing army stuff lol but combat boots seem like they’d be normal looking enough.

I think camo pants are okay to wear, but wearing official dress uniform/badges/berets are not cool imo.

We probably do have some surplus store nearby, but my boots that I had were perfect… after the exhausting time breaking them in. They were these tan CAT ones, but the logo was engraved into the leather as opposed the the usual yellow/black labels stitched on.
I left them behind because they smelled of the farm and I already had a 45kg suitcase (oops). I can’t remember for the life of me what model they were. If I get another pair (it’ll be a while yet) I’m definitely getting CAT ones again. 

I’ve been looking through endless online stores looking for a decent pair of boots that are like my old ones I used for work.

The ones that look nice are all steel-toe or composite-toe. ugh. I mss my old boots :(


beautiful. they chose the perfect time of day to photograph it too. unf
