Messing with my husband’s phone… and his sanity

The web browser on my husband’s phone saves his last 3 Google searches. Apparently a lot of phone browsers do this and most people just turn this feature off, but Craig prefers to keep it on (not sure why). One night while he was studying, I took his phone and noticed that his last 3 searches …

Another sad attempt at learning how to be sexy

A few months ago, I wrote about what a woman should NOT do if she wants to get lucky, and in it, I shared some goofy experiences and touched on my lack of sex appeal. I noticed that it generated some laughter among friends and readers, but no one commented to say, “No no, you’re …

Ladies, what NOT to do if you’re trying to get laid

Ask anyone (including Google), ‘how to turn a man on’ and you’ll hear typical responses like: talk dirty to him, do a strip tease, use a blind fold, take a shower together, or role-play. In short, be sexy! I’ll be the first to admit that sexiness is not something I really exude. I’m just too …

What it’s like being married to a nerd

Before I married my husband, I had limited wires, cables and extension cords in my house. I didn’t see a difference between cartoons and anime. And superhero movies didn’t interest me. But marrying a nerd has opened me up to a whole new world. Here’s a window into what life is like being married to …

10 Things that are no longer cool when you’re 30

We’ve all heard that 30 is the new 20, which to some extent is true. Thirty-somethings in today’s world can get away with doing things that our parents or grandparents could NEVER do at 30. But even still, there are some things that lose their “cool factor” as you enter your 30s. These are things …

The dreaded pap test: Opening up (literally) about my experiences

I’ve managed to get away with only 1 pap test my entire life. It was in 2010 and I remember the dry “Indian burn” feeling of her not using any gel. When that part was over she said, “Now I’m gonna put my hand inside to check… (I must’ve blacked out after “hand inside” because I …

I don’t understand why men spend so much time on the can

I’m doing it. I’m blogging about poop. At one point or another, most women have probably seen their men suddenly jump off the couch and march to the bathroom with a phone, laptop or tablet in hand. They retreat to their throne for an unusually long time, and then return to what they were doing …

5 Annoying things you hear when you say, “I don’t want kids”

It’s no secret that couples today are waiting until later in life to have children in order to focus on their careers or travel the world. Other than the occasional “don’t wait too long” comment, these couples usually don’t get much criticism for their decision to wait. But when someone asks me about children, I …

What’s with the “stick figure family” fad?

Okay, I have to blog about this. What is with the stick figure family decals I keep seeing on cars lately? When I saw one for the first time, I thought, “Weird. Not sure why you would want everyone to know you have a wife, kid and dog. But sure.” Definitely thought they were strange, but …

“It’s gonna be okay…” My new journal & funny quotes about life

Last week, a friend and co-worker gave me a journal with funny quotes about life, which she thought was perfect for me. And she was right. The journal is called “It’s gonna be okay” and the cover description is so me: “A journal to reassure myself when I’m overwhelmed by the creeping sense of impending …

Things kids can get away with… that adults would be judged for if we did in public

A few weeks ago, I had 2 back-to-back evenings surrounded by friends and family who have small kids. As the adults were drinking and chatting, the school aged kids were playing while the babies and toddlers were mostly fussing. As a people watcher, I couldn’t help but observe the way kids behave around adults. The …

I googled what a Goan & Viet baby would look like… and I’m scared

When we first got engaged, we were inundated with these questions: Did you set a date? When’s the big day? Are you planning a big wedding? When will we get our invitations? Can’t wait for the wedding! We got so annoyed that we eloped. Now that we’re married, it seems the questions we get asked …

Funny friendship quotes that I just had to share

I’ve really been touched by all the support I’ve received from my friends. Call me crazy, but I think our secret wedding has softened my dark and stone cold heart a little. Now I’m all of a sudden… emotional. (What the hell?) Last week, my childhood best friend gave me away to marry my life-long …

7 things that I consider a total waste of time

1. Crawling through snowy traffic Ever since I started driving and working, every winter I had to deal with snowy traffic. At all the companies I’ve worked for, I was never (let me repeat never) given the flexibility to work from home during snow storms… at least not without being given a hard time …

Only in Toronto… How a morning of errands can turn into hell

When people hear about the crazy things that happen to downtown newbs, they often roll their eyes and echo “only in Toronto.” Things like crowded streets, impossible parking, and construction areas are normal for travelling downtown. But “apparently” so is being greeted with spit on your windshield (ew!), the middle finger from a total stranger …

8 things you shouldn’t see in the women’s bathroom

Not sure what inspired me to write this post. It was probably an accumulation of all the weirdness I’ve seen in public bathrooms over time. It seems people don’t know basic bathroom etiquette.  Here’s my list of things you really shouldn’t see in the women’s bathroom. What’s your list? #1 – A man Whether it’s a …

Astrology had a sarcastic sense of humour today

I don’t take horoscopes too seriously, but I do have a horoscope app on my phone, which I read most mornings before work. It’s only in good fun since the daily predictions are always so vague that you could interpret them to fit any situation in your life. But today, my horoscope was pretty specific. …

What gives people the right to… (list the stupid things people do here)

As an avid people-watcher and observer of life’s unusual moments, I often see things that I don’t understand. Things that people say and do that make you wonder how much their parents paid their 2nd grade teachers not to flunk them for the third time. Admit it. You’ve seen some annoying people and wondered the …

Why do people steal food from the office fridge?

Many of you will remember Friends, the popular 90s television show that aired for a decade. Remember the episode when Ross had a mental breakdown after freaking out on his colleague for taking his sandwich from the office fridge? For those who haven’t seen that episode, you should watch it. Ross’ overdramatic rage is quite …
