She’s Going to be Trouble

This past weekend our house turned into a war zone. Alright, perhaps “war zone” is a bit of an understatement, but I’m not sure how else to describe the mood around here when the Leafs play the Habs. Oh sure, it’s just hockey and really has no bearing on real life, but that doesn’t mean … Continue reading

Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One…

The two stinkers have discovered how jokes work, and have been attempting to put them to good use. It all started one day in the grocery store. As we entered the second hour of my wife trying to figure out exactly which shampoo will do the best job of causing large quantities of her hair … Continue reading

In Which Saarah Eats Time

I’ve come up with the best excuse for missing work. Seriously, if this doesn’t get me out without being reprimanded, I don’t know what will. We were eating supper on Monday evening, as we do most nights. The supper in question was stir fry with peanut sauce. Delicious, right? I even found purple cauliflower at … Continue reading

What?! Why Would She… I’m at a Loss

A few months back we were driving home from Ballet on the weekend. The class had gone well, Saarah was in a good mood, and DJ Moishe was spinnin’ some sweet tracks(I have no idea if that’s how you’d say that. Is there anyone out there that can tell me if I sound “hip” and … Continue reading

Good Enough for Grandad

Every father wants nothing more than for their son to grow up enjoying the same things they do, mimicking their ways, and carrying on family traditions(unless one of those family traditions is being a Canucks fan. If that’s the case, then tradition be damned). So far, Tevye appreciates the same sense of humour that I … Continue reading

Thursday, January 16th?! It’s Tevye’s Big Day!

Is it his birthday? No Is it his first time going to a hockey game? Nope Is it his first day back at swimming lessons? Yes, but that’s not what I’m referring to. This is bigger. MUCH bigger. It’s huge news. Tonight, I kid you not, is a full moon. I’ll just let that big … Continue reading

You Won’t Touch His Big Lizard?!

On Saturday evening, Saarah had a gala to attend, and I was the lucky fella who would be accompanying her. We all know that she could’ve taken anyone she wanted, and that I was just something to dangle off her much-desired arm. It’s fine. I’ve come to terms with my role. This party happened to … Continue reading

See ya Later, Alligator

Certain sayings, rhymes, and general dumb stuff seem to transcend generations. Things that we used to say when we were young and we thought were pretty nifty. We were always amazed when our parents had heard these things long before we came along, and somehow that took all the fun out of them. The next … Continue reading

A Canadian Heritage Moment

The title, for you folks who’s ancestors decided it a good idea to live somewhere that isn’t (almost) completely covered in ice 6 months of the year, comes from a series of commercials from when I was much younger. They would, in 60 second segments, tell the much abridged version of important events in Canadian … Continue reading

The Griswold Family Christmas Tree

Given that all of the handsome husbands in this house happen to be Jewish(alright, so there’s only one, but his dashing good looks are so intense that it’s been said that there’s enough handsome for three men), we celebrate Chanukah(see “Sucks to Christmas, We’ve Got Doughnuts“). But wait, order one winter holiday now, and we’ll … Continue reading
