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 …

A letter to the douchebag who cheated on me… twice

The other day, I was having dinner with a girlfriend and we were reminiscing about all the losers we used to date when we were younger. As we were swapping stories, I started to wonder if I ever got “closure” for some of those horrible ex-boyfriend messes I experienced. The more I wondered about this, …

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 …

Sarcastic quotes to help you get through those crappy days

A week has gone by since my dear diary post about the “bad week” pattern I’ve been on. I’m not sure if it’s just a phase or what, but it seems my rough weeks don’t want to end. So rather than sulk in the crappiness of each day, I decided to counterattack bad days with good ol’ …

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 …

Dear crazy ex-girlfriend who won’t leave us alone

Dear crazy ex-girlfriend, The first time you went all whack-job on us with your obsessive phone calls and barrage of “we need to talk” messages, I understood. I really did. Like any girl after a relationship ends, you needed closure. The second and third times you went manic, your angry messages claiming you “wasted 4 …

Driving distractions – annoying things that happen while driving

Since I drive on 3 different highways every day, sometimes I encounter some irritating driving distractions. Some distractions are annoying things people do on the road, and others are just random annoyances that happen to you while you’re behind the wheel. Here are the annoying driving distractions that I chose to blog about tonight. 1. …

Is it sexy or creepy when a dude buys lingerie for a woman?

Blog poll: leave me a comment below. A few weeks ago, I was shopping with my best friend and walked into La Senza to check out their sale. As I do every time La Senza has a sale, I was browsing through the A cup bin. (Unfortunately I’ve been cursed with Asian breasts, so I’ve …

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 …

Office Space in the real world – admit it, similar shit’s happened to you

Last weekend I watched the Office Space movie, a film set in the late 90s about 3 working guys who downright hate their jobs. If you’ve ever been stuck in a stuffy cubicle reporting to 8 bosses who nag you about your company’s version of TPS reports, this is a must-watch-again movie. Sure, the movie is …

Why do couples fight? Not enough sex and not enough money

Google’s autocomplete feature on their search bar makes me laugh sometimes. I’m a sucker for “how-to” articles and blog posts, such as “how to make Parmesan chicken” or “how to style my hair for a wedding” or “how to grow marijuana.” (Kidding, I know how to make Parmesan chicken.) Today, out of curiosity I wanted to know …

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 …

When is it ever okay not to flush?!?

The other day, a friend posted a disturbing yet funny message on Facebook about people who don’t flush the toilet: “I’d like to know what goes through a woman’s head when she uses a public bathroom and decides NOT to flush. So effing dirty.” Not only did this bring back memories of my former workplace, …

5 Signs of a Dysfunctional Workplace

Workplace horror stories and low office morale aren’t something to poke fun at. But some situations are just so effed up that you almost have to laugh at them… just to get through the madness. Whether it’s a micro-managing boss, a jealous colleague, broken processes, lack of processes, unreasonable deadlines, poor employee morale, or verbal harassment …
