I can't remember when or where I head about the word 'jab' to mean 'shot,' 'vaccine,' or 'needle' but for once it was not on a British drama. In fact, I see if used by a number of Winnipeg Free Press journalists on Twitter before my account deactivation. It's missing the accent though. If a … Continue reading A Welcome Jab
Michele over at the M Files had this fun Armitage-related questionnaire, and I had a break from work. Sometimes a break from the chaos and personal nuttiness can do the soul some good and I have the soul of a 16-year-old high schooler with a crush on the artsy introvert. Let's do this. You Favourite … Continue reading Some Lighthearted Fun
I deactivated Twitter. No announcement I just did it. I joined Twitter in 2009 after attending a Webinar with the librarian I worked for at the time. I learned about hashtags, how using social media can drive library engagement. Over 10 years, including a small dust up with a Winnipeg-famous figure and his fans, I … Continue reading Digital Spring Cleaning

While portions of it had me going 'uh?' this movie took big risks to talk about a big theme: What is the meaning of our own lives? It's visually … Continue reading #MusicMonday: Epiphany by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross
Call it cosmic timing. The events of yesterday happened on The Feast Day of the Epiphany, celebrating the 3 wise men giving gifts to the human manifestation of God. When you think about it, these were nobodies, in a stable. Soon after Mary, Jesus, and Joseph had to run for their lives in Egypt as … Continue reading Epiphanies
https://youtu.be/L0X03zR0rQk It's a black and white video, looking like a old-time Hollywood musical with Phoebe Waller-Bridges looking snappy in her suit. It's a video and song released on New Year's Day and I had not smiling since hearing the opening chorus. Maybe 2021 will not suck. 2021 might be the year I stopped avoiding Harry … Continue reading Music Monday: Treat People with Kindness by Harry Styles
