What number can you count to without taking a single breath? I'll leave it up to the guinea pigs to … Continue reading Some question fun
I'm not normally keen on blog statistics, and try to avoid looking at them for the most part. They can offer some fascinating information, though. This posts is going to focus on the "Referrers" section of your stats, i.e. sites where people click on a link to go visit your site. I'm not going to … Continue reading Having fun with blog statistics
My little baby monster Oreo is a barber. Most guinea pigs don't do this, but for no apparent reason some guinea pigs have their own little side hustle barbering. It involves chewing off hair, and yes, barbering is the actual name for it. Oreo will go through brief spurts of it, and then won't do … Continue reading Anyone need a haircut?
I'm having a bit of writer's block, plus it's never a bad time to be proud of being a Canadian, so I thought I would share with you a little bit of Canadian fun.

So here are a … Continue reading A few silly pet peeves

Halloween was fun as a kid, but since then I've never had much interest, and dressing up seems like more of a production than it's worth. But if by chance someone were to bop me over the head and knock some Halloween fever into me, these are the characters I'd think about dressing up as. … Continue reading A Halloween virtual costume parade
I've enjoyed reading my whole life, and I've also loved words. Some words I've only ever seen written so have no idea how to pronounce, and some words I have an idea of what they refer to but don't really know the meaning.
