Before we get too far into this, I want you to go here and listen to The Faint’s Dress Code. Especially you, Meatbum. I’ll wait. I think it’s my new favourite thing ever invented. And, while you’re doing that, I’m just going to say I miss Devo. Okay.…

And after I'm done with my Triceratops ride, I will pull it in to the garage and peal out in this glorious, sexy machine: 

http://www.bikeexif.com/art-deco-custom-motorcycle
Every few months, a bike comes along that completely stops me in my tracks. Like this one: an Art Deco-influenced machine that could have come straight from the pen of Harley Earl. The bike caused a stir last month when it appeared at the Rhinebeck Grand National Meet, a popular motorcycle show held a couple…

Then I started thinking, with all the hullaballoo about the Alberta election, someone should make one of those “Hitler reacts” videos. Because, you know, that’s never been done before. Turns out I’m actually a pretty horrible person.…

We talk a lot about milestones, when we have kids. Milestones and rites of passage. By 18 months, your baby should be able to… Baby’s first tooth, baby’s first step, first day of school, first girlfriend, driver’s permit…the list goes on and on and on.…

I’m a little reticent to post this, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about lately. I think I’m ready for all the trolls and hate and malarky. I get that what I’m about to say is an incredibly unpopular opinion, and that probably I don’t understand…

Introduction
What really bothers me about these 'introductory' fields in social networks is that they in no way represent the truly awkward aspects of actually being introduced to someone, or of introducing yourself. So if you could just picture me smiling nervously (I know you might not actually know what I look like; make up the best mental image you can of someone nearing their forties, with a fairly sedentary lifestyle, who wears spectacles and has a bit of a cleft chin) and laughing too loud, that would be grand.

You might want to throw in the obligatory shuffling from foot to foot, and the self-conscious admission that yes, being a writer is cool, and no, I've not published a book yet, but yes, I've been published, and yes, I *am* that sort of editor - the kind who corrects restaurant menus, and no, I haven't a dog, but I have a stupid cat, and yes, I have children (two; they're boys), and that I live in Happy Hollow in the Qu'Appelle Valley in Saskatchewan, and that I work with book publishers.

And then, when there's nothing left to seem interesting enough to talk about, pretend I've just asked you how you are and what you do and whether you have a family and stupid cats. Then, there would be the first Awkward Silence of our acquaintance. 

I'm okay with Awkward Silences, though.
