Happy Halloween!

This year, I’ve got the wickedest set-up at my house.

Meet Red.  He’s going to be ‘opening’ the door and greeting all the kiddies tonight! Hopefully he doesn’t freak them out too much.

He came to me via my uncle, who’s colleague was a personal injuries lawyer.  Thus, he obtained the skeleton and passed it on to lucky ol’ me!

Red is also going to be my study buddy for anatomy class (KIN 190).  Thank goodness, because then I won’t have to trek all the way to Osbourne to study bones!  Not to mention that all the skeletons in my anatomy lab seem to have back problems.

So yes, we’re going to be good friends.

But it doesn’t mean I’m not freaked out every time I glance at him. *shudder*

Sunny music for rainy days

Y’know how it rains here in Vancouver? Y’know, like virtually ALL THE TIME?  Well! I found some songs that get me out of my bad weather funk, and might do the same for you, too! No guarantees.

10 rainbow-spewing ponies for anyone who knows in which cartoon the singer of Hey Ocean starred! Yay!

Have a good week, everyone! Don’t let the rain get you down!

Everytime I get off the bus in the rain

And I always seem to step in a puddle as soon as I get out, too.


I read An Account of Sexual Assault at Amherst College, and then I read Amherst Sweeps Sexual Assault Allegations Under the Rug.

And then I read the comments on the latter article.  Notably, the ones by “Greenbrier”, “ACstudent” and “AxC4”.

I have never been more thoroughly disgusted.

Just, ugh.

Rape culture.  Go look it up, define it, vow to abolish it.

How to sleep on the bus

This is how I’ve come to take naps on the bus!
The slouching minimizes the distance between your face and your bag, therefore reducing the strain on your neck.  Also, you can avoid making eye contact with strangers this way. Tried, tested, true!

This is the alternate position, and also the comfier one. It only works when you’re small enough (or the seat is big enough) to rest your head on the back of the seat. However, it’s not very attractive as your neck gets stretched out and your mouth has a tendency to loll open.

Don’t do these.

RUDE. If on priority seating, DOUBLY RUDE.

This is not how you make friends.

Following this position, you may end up on the bus floor *shudder*

Note the drool. What of course this has never happened to me!

For those of you who have good bus ettiquette, Kan has a few grateful words for you.
