Sims Social WTF

So I tried out the Sims Social on facebook, and quit playing it after a couple of weeks because you either need to have a million friends to help you get things done, or you need to spend IRL (In Real Life) money.  Now, I will pay for a game, but I will not pay to progress in a game, and that's what all facebook games are all about - you spending money because you want to move ahead. 

Today, I received this e-mail.  The subject line read, "I Can't Believe You Have Let Me Down."



Wait.  This is supposed to be an e-mail from my Sim?  An attempt at emotional manipulation on behalf of a virtual person?  LOL!  I don't even respond to emotional manipulation on the part of real people!

I know it's supposed to be funny...but it's not.

If I wasn't sure before, I'm sure now.  I'm definitely not ever playing that game again.  Sims Social can keep its 2000 simoleons, and it would be nice if they quit being so creepy.

My Inspiration

Posting this here to remind myself why I need to finish that degree so I can teach in Thailand. Once I've watched this video a few times, whatever assignment needs to be done gets done, and whatever money I was going to spend here gets put away for the trip.

Katanoi Beach (Phuket). Oh, yeah. That's where I'm going. Then all I have to do is figure out whether or not they need English teachers in Fiji!

December 2011 Availability


Well, I made it through the first semester. My last class is today. There's a final exam coming up, but that's no big deal. No more classes until January! I am extremely happy about that, and the grades are good. Not amazing, but good enough.

I am using some of my free time between semesters to switch gyms. Not really liking the rec centre anymore, it's nice but I'm losing motivation because most of the people in there are just screwing around. Also, the music sucks. The first week at the new gym is free, so next week, I'll be starting, and hitting it hard. Best time to call me: afternoon

My Final Fantasy XI team is out of control, wrong races, wrong jobs, too much job-burning so nobody has any skills or proper gear anymore. It's becoming a headache, and I have never really liked my server, so I'm moving to a new one and then I'll think about what I want to do with my alts. I have six, and at least two of them have got to go.

I will be available at my regular hours throughout the holidays - not going on any vacations or anything like that - so feel free to take a break and come by for a nice massage.

See you soon,

Bored? Me too! Call me.


Now, just in case my good friend Nadine decides that this is a rant, I will first qualify it by saying I'm not ranting, just somewhat dismayed that I chose this major, and am changing the plan.  Again  :D

My work from last year and this year will meet the requirements for a minor, so at least that will be done.  Perfect!  I was wondering what my minor would be.

So, dear clients, please feel free to interrupt my studies.  You'll be alleviating my suffering just as much as I am alleviating yours!

A Final Farewell to my Shitty Surfboard

See that beautiful Source board to the left there?  That's a surfboard.  What do I ride?  Not a surfboard.  What I ride is a shitty surfboard.

I took off to Tofino last night.  I wanted to see if the training is paying off.  It's not like anyone would notice - Nadine is working all week and I don't like working at night anyway.  So I get there late, doze off in the car for a few hours, and hit the beach early when nobody's around.

Good thing too, because it was cold and I did a lot of yelping that would have been embarrassing if it had been heard.  That Quicksilver vest is going to be a must-have this winter, but I figured, I came all this way so might as well gut it out.

I was trying to figure out if I want to keep my big softop, so I took it out and it's got zero stability, insane in a board that size.  I figured it must be me, but it isn't.  I tried everything.  Nothing worked.  Surf rodeo, the damn thing wants you off.

Ended up wiping out, of course.  Avoided faceplanting but damned if the board didn't clock me right in the face.  I still can't figure out how it did that.  The waves must have pushed that big 8'2" bastard under because it was going like a freight train by the time it hit me, and one of the fins missed my left eye by maybe an inch.  Again, good thing there was nobody around because there's nothing worse than being heard yelling at or about your board.  If anything was going to maul me, I figured it would be a cougar, since they just shot one at Cox yesterday, but nope!

I brought some seawater back with me and between using that and aloe vera it's healing fast.  It's always my face that gets it.  Once this heals, I'm lightening my whole face and protecting it better after that.  I can't afford to have skaterface.

On the plus side, nothing got broken (this time) and I managed to get some upper-body rippage, so no gym today, which will give me time to get creative with the makeup.

That board retires now.  I've used other boards and everything was okay, enough to know that any problems were my fault.  With this board, it's not me.  I got it used, and it didn't cost much, and now I know why.  I'm not even giving it away, it can stay in the spare room with its bad juju.

Time for a California board.  New, smaller, beautifully shaped by Nick Palandrani.  I am so glad that Storm has them.  I love the one in that photo, but will have to rent a few different sizes and shapes first to see what works best before shelling out.

Here's a video of Rob Morris (Australia) launching a beautiful hollow timber board that took him a year to make.  It must be sick on big waves.

Quake!

Wooo! Been a while since I felt one of those!

A 6.4 magnitude earthquake has struck off the west coast of Vancouver Island, with tremors felt as far away as Kelowna. The reading was downgraded from an initial report of magnitude 6.7.

The earthquake occurred at 12:42 pm P.T. about 18 kilometres under the surface of the Pacific Ocean, around 80 kilometres south of Port Alice, on Vancouver Island.

Not enough to make things fall over, but they sure did sway for about half a minute, and the building made a low groaning sound for about ten seconds. Remember Titanic? The sound the ship made? Sort of like that. Hmmm. Not something I like to hear while the earth's surface heaves beneath me.

The cat didn't like it much either. Any normal cat would have run and hidden.  This one decided, during those ten seconds, that contrary to sentiments previously expressed, he loves me a whole lot.

pickmeup pickmeup pickmeup ofukkit iamjustgonnajumpontoyou

Now he doesn't want his paws touching the floor. That's going to make for an interesting weekend.

Everything's fine here but I really must get that flatscreen attached to the wall. It's on a stand and nearly tipped over. I don't want it coming down unless the wall is coming down.  Actually, come to think of it...there are a lot of things around here that really should be secured, the tops of the bookshelves should be attached to the wall, the artwork, that kind of thing.  -

Here's Prince performing Housequake.

Happy Birthday, Freddie!

Today, on what would have been Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday, I thought I'd share one of my favourite songs with you.



Written by John Deacon, "One Year of Love" was released in 1986, on the album A Kind of Magic and the Highlander soundtrack. Steve Gregory plays sax, and the orchestra is conducted by Lynton Naiff.

Enjoy, and if you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check out Google's "Freddie for a Day" doodle. Fantastic!

August Special


August special at Comox Valley Massage ends soon!  Discount sessions available today, tomorrow and Wednesday only.  I would like to thank my clients for your patronage this month - thanks to you, my Fall tuition is paid and I will be picking up the rest of my textbooks on Thursday.  Couldn't have done it without you :)

It's been a great summer, not much travelling but lots of meeting new friends and catching up with old ones.  During the Fall semester, I will be a little less available in the evenings, but I will still be available during the day, seven days a week.

See you soon!

VIEX and CVEX



So, this past weekend I headed down to the exhibition grounds, and of course there was nothing there because I was looking for VIEX, which is in Nanaimo!  Had a fun day in Nanaimo, and when I came back I figured out when the fair is going to be here...

Anyone who likes fairs should check out the Comox Valley Exhibition at the exhibition grounds in Courtenay (you know, where MusicFest is held).  It runs Friday through Sunday.  This year's theme is "Cowboy Trails 'n 4-H Tales".  I'll will definitely be checking it out, and recommend that you do too.  Go on some rides, play some games, check out the 4-H stuff and support the local youngsters, maybe go for a pancake breakfast (9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday).  Fun!

Click to visit CVEX web site - it's very well designed and informative.

Have a great weekend!

Edit:  Luzna Orchestra performed Friday night, awesome Latin ensemble.  Highlight for me was their sublime rendition of "Bésame Mucho".  Here's a clip of them from last year's Fall fair:



Unfortunately, I didn't shoot any video so didn't get their version of "Bésame Mucho" for you, but you would no doubt enjoy the following clip of Andrea Bocelli performing it.

Nicole's Summer Dinner Party


What a perfect day for a summer dinner party!  Yes, it takes a while to plan, and it's hot for cooking, but August is the perfect month, and Wednesday is the perfect day because it brings a little diversion to a long week of hard work.  The only thing that would make it more perfect would be a beach nearby.  I've really got to find something waterfront.

A little Napa cabbage salad with sesame and wonton, spring rolls and sweet chili sauce, tofu miso soup to start.

Pad Thai with shrimp and crushed peanuts (no peanut allergies thank goodness), satay chicken and beef skewered with peppers and shitakes on jasmine rice, and a few tofu skewers too.  The metal skewers get so hot...the wooden ones are best but you have to soak them in water first. Peanut sauce on the side.  For one fussy eater, barbecued chicken breasts with long grain rice, but you never know...maybe he will try something new.

For dessert, homemade mango sorbet with lychee, shredded coconut and a touch of Malibu rum.  That, I think, will add that special little finishing touch.

Beautiful, and not at all heavy.

After dinner, in keeping with the theme, the girls are watching "The Beach" and talking about Leonardo DiCaprio while the boys compare laptops and talk about whatever they talk about.  At least we'll be eating together and I'll finally get some feedback on my cooking.  Hoping for rave reviews.

Iced tea for me (check), wine and coolers for the girls (check), beer for the boys (check).  The prep work is done, and I'm knocking off work early to take a cool shower and get ready.

Turning Thai I Really Think So


Went to Amy's Asian Foods again and bought more ingredients to do more cooking.  I've made Tom Ka Gai, which is a galangal soup, and Kao Tom Moo, which is a sort of congee rice soup with boiled pork.  I've made spring rolls, egg rolls, chicken satay with peanut sauce, and some lovely desserts.  Tom Yum and Pad Thai are next.  I seem to be starting with soups and appetizers for the most part.

I've resolved not to eat any Western food because I won't be eating any in Thailand.  I don't want to be walking around in Bangkok looking for the nearest McDonalds because I don't eat fast food here, and I think it will look silly to be making pork chops while everyone else is cooking Thai.  This morning I woke up and realized that I hadn't taken any Kao Tom Moo out of the freezer the night before, so breakfast was sort of out of the question for a while.

This culinary immersion has been an interesting experience.  The goal is to be able to look at various Thai dishes, know what they are, and know how to make them, in the same way that I can look at meatloaf with mashed potatoes here, know what it is, and know how to make it.  I think things are starting to sink in.  Now all I have to do is learn the language...and the money system...and the transportation system. 

The process brings back memories.  My parents were both European immigrants, and we travelled a lot.  Before going to a new country, we learned about the food, language, money, and transportation system so that nobody would get sick, confused, ripped off, or lost.  Nothing but the food from the destination country was prepared for months beforehand, so we had time to learn about it and get our digestive systems used to it, and there was the occasional dour tutor.  I recall struggling mightily to learn the Paris Metro routes and stations...my parents had no sympathy.  They always wanted to see Thailand, but never got the chance.  They would have been very excited about my plans to teach English there.

It's been a while since I did any significant travelling, and I am really looking forward to it.  I have to get through school first, but even now at this early stage, my mind is already spending some of its time there.

ผมหวังว่าเวลาจะผ่านได้รวดเร็วยิ่งขึ้น <= "I hope that the time passes quickly."

On Reviews - Nicole - Comox Valley Massage - Erotic Massage in Comox BC


So many people are looking for online escort reviews, and talking about reviews, that I felt that a little discussion on reviews was in order.

If you're here because you were searching for reviews on me, I am probably not your kind of SP. I don't think that it's appropriate to "review" sex workers, and it's been my experience that clients who come to me from review sites are looking for something different from what I offer.  I am an erotic masseuse.  My massage service is not interactive - it is for those who are content to remain on the receiving end of the pleasure.

I have always believed that it's important to be honest and answer questions.  Anyone who wants to know more about me can start with my web site.  It is extremely detailed, and I keep it up to date because its purpose is to inform.  If the site is not giving you the information you want, ask me.  If I don't offer what you want, I will tell you even if it costs me a booking, because no matter how many people don't want what I'm offering, far more do.  If you are in doubt about extras, book a basic massage first and consider other services as possibilities for future visits.  But find out for yourself - don't take anyone else's word on whether or not you will be compatible with me as a client because we're talking about an erotic service and works for one person might not work for another.

Reviews can be bought.  Reviews can be extorted.  Reviews can be flat-out lies, or they can simply be coming from someone whose tastes are not the same as yours.  The only opinion you really need is your own.

Back to School Already



I went to Nanaimo for my textbooks today, and managed to get most of them.  Some have not yet been shipped to the VIU bookstore yet, and one of the instructors has not yet decided which books we'll be using.  Will get the rest by the end of the month.

Fortunately, the first few assignments are based on books that I was able to acquire, and there are two longer books that will take a while to read.  So I guess the studying starts now...a month before classes begin.

During the semester, I will be happy about the early start, but right now I'm just sleepy!  I love the sun, but got way too much of it today, running around in Nanaimo, so my forehead and nose are a little more red than they should be and I have a massive headache.

Looks like it's going to be all about working and studying for the next several months.  Oh, well.  I can think of worse ways to pass the time!  I still have to get the rest of my tuition and textbook money together, so will be offering a special for the month of August.

In other news, it's hotter than Hades in this place! The massage room is fine, it's air-conditioned, but the rest of the place is stifling.  I am extending my hours to midnight so you can come in later, when it's cooler.  Last available appointment time:  11 p.m.

Now I'm off to have some nice Kao Tom Moo (Thai boiled rice with pork), which is very nice on a hot day because it's so mild and filling, but not at all heavy.  Then another cool shower, then reading...reading...and more reading.

Asian Adventures


I've been learning about Thai cooking, because when I go to Thailand, I don't want anyone cooking for me. I like flavour, but not too much heat, so I'm planning to cook for myself over there and I know nothing about Thai food. I'll be standing there in the market, not knowing what's in front of me. So I looked online and, after a successful and delicious foray into Satay chicken with peanut sauce the other night, I was ready to try something new. The recipe baffled me. What is "galanga"? What is "lemongrass"? And what are "Thai birds"? I looked all over town yesterday and could locate none of these things. Finally decided to cast the net a little wider and discovered Amy's Asian Foods & Cafe, on 13th Avenue, in Campbell River. I phoned her and was assured that she had all these mystery ingredients, and more, so I couldn't wait and headed out there this morning. What an experience! I learned more about Thai cooking in five minutes than in all my Internet searching to date. As it turns out, galanga is a rhizome, sort of similar to ginger, lemongrass is a sort of citrus tasting grass that is used as a herb, and Thai birds are little dried chilis. I came home with the right stuff for my next creation, and much more. Tomorrow I will make Thai Chicken and Coconut Milk Soup (Tom Ka Gai). I am way too tired to start cooking now but very happy to have found a good place to buy ingredients.

On the way out of town, I stopped in at Sushi Mong on Shopper's Row to try one of the lunch specials and had an absolutely amazing meal. Miso soup to start, teriyaki chicken, tempura vegetables, salad, an orange, and three kinds of nigiri - tuna, salmon and shrimp. All for $12.95 - which meant that the budget also allowed for hot sake and mango ice cream. That is an absolutely unbeatable price. Nice atmosphere and excellent service too.

I have always liked Campbell River, and it seems like every time an errand takes me there, I find reason to like it more. If you Campbell River guys haven't been to Amy's or Sushi Mong, do yourself a favour and check them out. You'd be surprised how delicious this food is, even if some of it sounds yucky :D

First Day of MusicFest 2011 Did Not Disappoint


Arrested Development was awesome last night! I made a video clip too (below) - it's definitely not the greatest quality but it should give you a bit of an idea what the show was like. I'm staying in for the rest of the weeekend - the shows are great but the exhibition grounds are a little too crowded for me.

HST Referendum Ballot



Well, it finally arrived...my long-awaited HST Referendum ballot.

Between the time my ballot hit my hands and the time it was mailed, perhaps ten minutes elapsed. It didn't take long. I didn't even miss any work during the trip to the post office. I won't say what I voted...anyone who knows me knows what I voted, and why.

Here's what I will say:

If you don't get your ballot by Friday July 8, the most likely reason is that you have moved and not notified Elections of your new address. You can contact Elections BC and ask for one - they can still get it to you in time for you to vote and send it back. Click here for Elections BC Contact (opens in new window).

Throwing the ballot away is not a vote to maintain the status quo. To do that, you'd have to vote "No" to keep the HST. Throwing the ballot away only tells the government that you don't give a damn, and the government likes apathy. Apathy = We Can Do Whatever We Like, Bwa ha ha ha

Read the instructions. It's one of those "matroyshka doll" situations. Fill out the ballot, put it in an envelope. Write on the envolope, put it in another envelope. No wonder it's going to take them five weeks to count the ballots if they have to open all those bloody envelopes.

The wording of the ballot could be misunderstood by anyone who does not read carefully or by those who do not know the meaning of the word "extinguish" (and I have no doubt that such people exist). A "Yes" vote means you want the HST extinguished...gone...put out, like a fire. A "No" vote is a vote to keep it.

You can put a check mark or an "x" in the white circle. I take this to mean that writing "Stick your fucking HST up your asses" on the ballot will disqualify it, even if you print it in tiny letters in the white circle. Don't include any letters or photos of your dick or you giving the bird or anything else. Just the ballot.

You can use a pencil or pen, but I used a pen so nobody could erase and change my mark LOL. Do not use felt pen, marker, paint or blood.

Don't forget to sign and put your birthdate and phone number on the front of the envelope that has the spaces for that, and don't fill out the stuff on the back unless there have been changes to your name, address, etc.

Don't use a fake phone number. If they decide to use some godawful autodialing system to confirm the votes (and I wouldn't put it past them), it's not going to kill us to listen to a bit of a recording and then hit "1" to confirm or whatever you'd have to do.

The ballot is going to Vancouver, so put it in the "all other areas" mailbox, not the "local" one.

I am looking forward to hearing the results of the vote. No matter which way it goes, at least we finally got to say Yea or Nay....even if Yea meant Nay and Nea meant Yea.

Happy Independence Day





To my American friends! Hope it's been a great weekend :)

My family has always spent a lot of time in the United States and we have lived in many places there. Because of this, for many years we celebrated both Canada Day and Independence Day, no matter where we were. As I write this, much of my family is in Florida, for no apparent reason, and of course they would like me to drive there and join them, not caring how far it is. That is the mentality...there is no distance, there are no obligations, time doesn't matter. If you want to go, you go, and the more the merrier!

That got me thinking about independence, and what it really means. To my family, it has always meant either being wealthy enough not to have to work, or sufficiently impoverished to have and need very little. I have lived on both sides. I can sleep in a bus station or a mansion, but I have never been behind the White Picket Fence. To my relatives, middle class life is alien and somewhat frightening.

My travels are going to take me to Thailand to teach English, and although it seems like people just pick up and do that, it's not that simple. I have to finish my degree, take another course after that, find a decent teaching service to represent me, renew my passport, downsize my living situation, find suitable housing in Thailand, figure out what to do with the cat...once I get there, I will be there for a few months each year. All of this preparation does not feel like freedom to me. It does not allow for taking off to go anywhere, and this is strange to me, because that has always been a big part of who I am.

But the process has begun, as familiar to me as breathing. It is the time when you start looking at some of your stuff and not wanting to own it anymore. Neither remembering nor caring why you wanted it in the first place, wondering what really matters. What will I keep? What will I sell? What will I just give away? I was always taught that you don't own your possessions...your possessions own you, and I hate that feeling of being owned. You cannot be owned and be independent at the same time. That's what the Fourth of July is all about. The Declaration of Independence boils down to "We don't want to be owned". Later, the Emancipation Proclamation boils down to "Nobody wants to be owned."

I don't want to be impetuous and wind up with regrets later, so I'll start with a large storage unit and take it from there. By the time I'm done, I will have a smaller residence containing fewer things, the most powerful laptop I can find (with kickass Internet) and the cat. Some of his condos are going to have to go, too. I have all these beautiful hardcover books. I bought them because I didn't want to wait for them to come out in paperback, and there are so many of them. I could sell them for enough money to buy a Kindle. I need to adopt a more mobile mentality over the next year or so, so I guess that's what I will be doing with any spare time I have...sorting out all this stuff...and I think that once it's sorted, I will begin to feel independent again.

Canada Day Long Weekend Update


This weekend's special is going to be extended because of the long weekend.  It will start on Friday, July 1 and continue through Monday July 4 (which also nicely covers Independence Day for my American clients).  It will be the same as last weekend's special, just four days instead of two. 

Members, book a Members Only session for the best rate.

Please book as far ahead as you can - long weekends are busy and I can't answer the phone during sessions.

Looking forward to seeing you, and if I don't see you, have fun and play safe!

The Frozen Logger

For all you loggers out there...this is The Frozen Logger, by James Stevens

As I set down one evening in a timber town café
A forty year-old waitress, to me these words did say
"I see you are a logger and not a common bum
For no one but a logger stirs his coffee with his thumb

My lover was a logger, there's none like him today
If you'd sprinkle whisky on it, he'd eat a bale of hay
He never shaved the whiskers from off his horny hide
But he'd pound 'em in with a hammer, then bite 'em off inside

My lover came to see me one freezing winter day
He held me in a fond embrace that broke three vertebrae
He kissed me when we parted so hard it broke my jaw
And I could not speak to tell him he'd forgot his mackinaw

I watched my logger lover going through the snow
A-sauntering gaily homeward at forty eight below
The weather tried to freeze him, it tried it's level best
At a hundred degrees below zero, he buttoned up his vest

It froze clean down to China, it froze to the stars above
At one thousand degrees below zero it froze my logger love
They tried in vain to thaw him and if you'll believe me, sir
They made him into ax blades to chop the Douglas fir

That's how I lost my lover and to this café I come
And here I wait till someone stirs his coffee with his thumb
And then I tell my story of my love they could not thaw
Who kissed me when we parted so hard he broke my jaw"

Hitch-22: A Memoir


Well, I finally managed to lay hands on a copy of this book.  Comments will be a work in progress because I'm still reading it.  Right now, I'm just getting through his childhood.  This passage about his mother leapt out at me:

Yvonne, then, was the exotic and the sunlit when I could easily have had a boyhood of stern and dutiful English gray.  She was the cream in the coffee, the gin in the Campari, the offer of wine or champagne instead of beer, the laugh in the face of bores and purse-mouths and skinflints, the insurance against bigots and prudes.  Her defeat and despair were also mine for a long time, but I have reason to know that she wanted me to withstand the woe, and when I once heard myself telling someone that she had allowed me a "second identity" I quickly checked myself and thought, no, perhaps with luck she had represented my first and truest one.  (Hitchens 25-26)

^ That, right there, is why I love Hitch. ^

Ask Me That Again. I Dare You


Today started out well enough - a meeting with a tattoo artist to discuss the possibility of a nice Canadian flag-type tattoo so I don't get robbed, raped and/or murdered in a foreign land.

After that, I found out I need a root canal on one of my molars, which is poisoning my system, making my lymph nodes swell up, draining my energy and making me unable to hold down any food.

I also ran out of nicotine patches and discovered that when one does not replace those posthaste, withdrawal is immediate and rather unpleasant.

So, in an effort to boost myself somewhat, I went out in search of food that would stay down (definitely pizza), water, and more patches.

It took the girl behind the pizza counter 30 minutes to heat up a pizza that she'd told me would be done in 15.  In the meantime, an old woman ran into my achilles tendons with her shopping cart, which caused her free sample of organic, cruelty-free coffee to splash all over the back of my Surf Kaua'i shirt and my hair.  I kept my composure.  Didn't say a word.  Not "You move like a fucking snail", not "Why don't you watch where the fuck you're going?"  Not a word.

At the pharmacy, I was told that I'd have to wait to pay for my nicotine patches because the store was having "till problems".  I did inquire a bit icily as to long it might take for that situation to be resolved.  I received a blank stare and a shrug by way of reply.  I kept my composure, put the patches back, and went to another pharmacy.

At the other pharmacy, I waited ten minutes for the cashier and the customer ahead of me to stop quacking and laughing over some stupid bullshit.  By then, the sound of human voices was drilling through my skull, straight into the Insanity Cortex.  You know that part of the brain...it's the one affected when a small child starts squalling in a public place.  When I finally got to the cashier, she asked me if I am over 55 years of age.  Apparently, there was some sort of senior's special going on.  At that point, I snapped.

"What?"

"Are you over 55?"

"NO!  Do I look like I'm over 55?"

Blank stare.

"I should hope not."

Another blank stare.  The proper response would have been, "No! Of course not!"  Perhaps a smile and a little shake of the head.
 
I was a cashier starting at the age of twelve, in my mother's shop.  If I'd ever asked a customer about their age, for any reason, I would not have survived the day.  That goes for quacking and laughing and holding up the line too.  Customer getting loud = give your head a shake and apologize.

Instead she says, "I have to ask, it's my job."

I doubt that a pharmacy chain of that size would require its cashiers to ask every customer, no matter what their apparent age, whether or not they are over the age of 55.  Instead of accusing her of being an idiot and/or liar, I said, "Well, next time look, then ask."  That was all of the restraint of which I was capable.

As I stomped out to the car, I thought about my mother and how, if she was still alive, she probably would have been there.  She'd have jumped right in, in that way she had of making uncomfortable situations absolutely cringeworthy.  I don't care how swollen her lymph nodes are, there is no way my daughter looks over 55.  Not even on her worst day!  You insult my daughter with no apology?  Now you go get your manager.  I want to hear why it's your job to ask everyone if they are over 55.  No!  You go.  We will wait.

All I wanted was enough food, water, and patches to ensure that I wouldn't have any contact with anyone except my clients until this damned molar is fixed.  Now, I want everyone with an IQ under 120 to be immediately and unceremoniously euthanized.

And I sort of want my mother, too.

First Day of Summer!



Finally!  The most awesome season of the year is here, for those who like it hot.  For those who don't...the air conditioning is all ready for you.

What am I doing this summer?  Well...unlike last summer, which was the very definition of slacking, I will be working my ass off because I have school starting in September and it's going to cost me a lot, both in terms of tuition, books, etc. and lost revenue from missing work while in classes.  Winters are slow, and when you're doing something that takes you away from what work there is, it's stressful.  In an effort to prepare for a stress-free and studious winter/spring, I've decided to be the ant and not the grasshopper for once.

This means no surfing until the winter break, which is fine because the best surfing in Tofino is in winter anyway.  I had hoped to see some hot sand, but sadly it is not to be.  I'm putting the jeans away and switching to sundresses, so be prepared to see me in colourful cotton shifts and not much else. I should warn you that I don't wear shoes if I can avoid it (old childhood habits die hard) - Sanuks at most. Just don't expect high heels and stockings - it'll be Rip Curl and Billabong all the way to September.

So how will summer be handled rates-wise?  Weekend specials!  I can't run a special every day...that would make it sort of...not special, but I don't want to completely eliminate them either, so on Saturdays and Sundays I will offer discounts on both erotic massage and full service sessions.

Hours are extended between now and September, because the days are longer and by July/August it's going to be hot enough in the afternoons that a siesta will be worked into the day (again, old childhood habits die hard).

On the subject of heat, this is the season to take care of your skin.  I've taken care of it with my fabulous oils all winter and spring, so sunscreen is a must!  This is also the season of sweaty bods and sandal feet...please be sure you've showered before coming in, and take extra good care of those tootsies, please and thanks.

Looking forward to seeing you this summer...have fun, play safe, and enjoy the video (Happy Birthday, Brian Wilson)

Nicotine Nightmares


I've been using nicotine patches for a few weeks now.  I put one on every morning and everything is fine as long as I take it off about an hour before I go to sleep, and also wash off any residue that's left on my arm.  Only problem is, I don't always plan to sleep...it just happens.  One minute I'm wide awake, next minute I'm out like a light, still wearing the patch, and not even the sound of my video game controller, TV remote, or book hitting the floor will wake me.

The first time it happened, I dreamed I was attacked by a Rottweiler but it all turned out okay because I bit the dog and it ran away crying.  The few seconds between the dog launching itself into the air and it landing on me were pretty scary though.

Last night, it was Switzerland.  I was in Switzerland with a friend, smuggling diamonds, getting into fights and running from a blonde woman on a motorcycle who was shooting at us with a rather large nickel plated pistol.  Also, my friend was poisoned, so it was a pretty bad scene.

These dreams are extremely vivid, in colour and high definition, and can be recalled perfectly the next day.  So I did a little research and discovered that a lot of people are having these dreams if they sleep while wearing a nicotine patch.  Some of them think that the dreams are a withdrawal symptom.  I doubt that because they don't happen if you're not wearing a patch while sleeping, and there is more withdrawal without it.  The dreams are caused by the patch...I think it's because we don't smoke in our sleep.  Nicotine entering the bloodstream while you're sleeping is a whole new ballgame.  I find this interesting and am wondering what it does to the brain while you're awake.

Could smoking cause fantastical thoughts and anxieties?  Could it stimulate the "imaginative" part of the brain?  Maybe.  We are all familiar with the "smoking writer" - in days past, he pounded away on his typewriter in a blue haze.



Long after typewriters have given way to keyboards, the blue haze remains.  I wish we'd kept the typewriters and ditched the tobacco. Christopher Hitchens (my second-favourite author after Stephen King) has esophageal cancer because he smoked for so many years.  The heavy drinking didn't help either, but that's another topic.  Do you have to smoke to write?  I doubt it, but I wonder why so many writers do it.  They'd be better off putting on a nicotine patch and going to sleep instead!

Smoking costs us so much.  It costs us people, and everything they could have shared with the world had they lived longer.  I guess quitting is worth a few weird dreams.

Disappointing Game, Depressing Aftermath



Wow.  Just...wow.  Does that photo of Vancouver remind you of anything?

I don't mind so much that the Canucks lost.  It's not as though both teams could win, someone had to lose and I was prepared to celebrate if the Canucks won, and be disappointed if they didn't.  But this?

A few bad apples in Vancouver have embarrassed themselves, the team they're supposed to support, the city they're supposed to love, their province, and their country.  It only takes a few to make everyone look bad, doesn't it?  Last time I checked, harming other people, destroying property and stealing were not the sort of things a decent human being does, no matter what the reason, and this is the second time it's happened now.  We should have learned a few things from what happened in 1994 and Vancouver should never have closed the streets to allow huge numbers of people to gather like that.

I am disgusted.  Absolutely disgusted.

Canucks Stanley Cup Final Game 7: June 15, 2011



Today is the day!  Today, the Vancouver Canucks will play the Boston Bruins for the whole enchilada - the coveted Stanley Cup!

And how coveted it is.  "We want the cup" has thundered in the streets, in Rogers arena, in TD Garden.  At times I have thought I could hear it from here. 

By now, you guys have noticed how I become unavailable at precisely 5 p.m. PDT on Canucks game days.  I'm sure you've noticed that I haven't been wearing much lately besides a Canucks jersey and panties.  Don't think I haven't noticed how much you like to talk about hockey during an erotic massage.  I do too.  So much so that it gets sort of...not erotic.

It's been an ugly, messy journey.  Bite!  Headshot!  Suspension!  And most regrettably, a serious back injury for Mason Raymond.  Now that is heartbreaking.  I'm trying to think of something that would be more disappointing than being injured that badly in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, but can't come up with anything.  Being left at the altar, maybe?  Actually, no, missing Game 7 would be worse.  A stillborn child.  There.  That would be worse.  That's the only thing I can imagine that would be more disappointing, and that sort of fits.  Ten months of waiting, preparing, looking forward, and then...it's over.

Anyway, the Canucks are back in Vancouver, much to the relief of their fans.  Off the soft, chippy ice, away from the Boston refs, back where they don't get booed, and injured players actually get carried off on stretchers by medics instead of having to be lugged off the ice by their teammates.  Too bad the Bruins had to come here too, eh?  He he.

Is it going to be enough that they are here?  I don't know.  I don't have the ability to predict the future, so I refrain from attempting to do so.  They have won on home ice before, but that doesn't mean that they will do so today.  What I will say is that I hope they win.  Of course I hope they win.  It will make them, and a lot of other people, very happy (some disturbingly so).  More than that, however, I hope that there are no more injuries, especially none involving the spine.  It's one thing to catch a puck in the face - it's quite another to break your back.  That's scary and I don't want to see anything like that tonight.  I also hope that, if the Canucks lose, Vancouver fans will keep their composure and not go nuts like in 1994.  Riots make the residents of a city (and the team they support) look like complete asshats, no matter who started it.

I'm going to a viewing party and trying to get ready for that and work at the same time.  When you have hair down to your ass, it takes forever to get it right.

Anyway, here we go, once again!  Go Canucks Go!  Win or lose, they have an awful lot of people - and a lot of awful people - behind them.

aw·ful (ôfl)

adj.

1. Extremely bad or unpleasant; terrible: had an awful day at the office.

2. Commanding awe: "this sea, whose gently awful stirrings seem to speak of some hidden soul beneath" (Herman Melville).

3. Filled with awe, especially:  a. Filled with or displaying great reverence.  b. Obsolete Afraid.

4. Formidable in nature or extent: an awful burden; an awful risk.

adv. Informal
Extremely; very: was awful sick.

Edit:  Well, I hoped the Canucks would win, and I hoped that if they didn't, nobody would riot.  Guess I'm 0 for 2 :(

Registered!

It's done! Got 2011/2012 all mapped out. Like last year, I will be attending classes Tuesday and Thursday evenings, starting in September. I'd like to do more than that, it's only two courses per semester, but they're required courses for the degree and combined, they're worth 18 credits, so I need to give them as much attention as possible. Next year I'll do some fiddly little shit at North Island College and a big research project that will get me out of having to study abroad.

The only thing that sucks about this is having to run back and forth to Nanaimo.  I thought about working while in Nanaimo but would rather not...best to just get there and back as quickly as possible. Like last year, I can compensate somewhat for the lost evenings by working earlier in the morning. So that's going to create the same situation as last year: morning work, afternoon work, evening work out or class, night study. When am I supposed to sleep? More importantly, when am I supposed to surf?

This had better be a really good summer.

What's New for June?



Getting ready for a busy summer! No festivals for me this year - I'm going to get my tuition together for Fall and Spring this time. Thanks to the strike at VIU last semester, I've ended up having to start fourth year before third year is finished and my plan is all bassackwards, but this way I only lose half a year. No worries as long as I keep getting those credits.

I'm going to a few simple, inclusive rates for summer, as well as longer hours. This "being at the gym in the morning" thing has not been working out...mainly because I want to work in the morning, not work out. Will have to leave the other stuff for after work. "Yeah, right!" cries the Inner Voice. "Only thing you'll be doing after work is fucking around in Vana'diel with your Final Fantasy friends!"

We'll see about that! I have a plan. (Inner Voice Rolls on the Floor Laughing)

Regular clients, next time I see you be sure to choose your login info for the Members area of the site. Membership has its benefits!

Acupuncture is Bullshit


It might seem strange that a masseuse to say this, but acupuncture is bullshit. It is often assumed that a massuese will be "into" alternative medicine, but I'm not.

I finally got around to checking out Chinese acupuncture. It's supposed to work on everything from sciatica to migraines to quitting smoking, so I tried it - more than once. I should have known better, because Penn and Teller had already said that acupuncture is bullshit, and they're just not known for being wrong.

I went ahead and explored it anyway just out of curiosity and because my back was killing me.

I'm not saying that acupuncture doesn't work. It does, temporarily, alleviate pain, but not for the reasons the acupuncturist will give you. Perhaps a long time ago,when people didn't know about neurology, the concepts of meridians and Qui lines made sense. Now, they are more of a metaphor than anything else, but acupuncture isn't sold that way. It's sold the same way as it was back then, as a magical cure-all.

Whenever the brain perceives pain, it will cause the body to produce endorphins, which block the same neural receptors as opium and have the same effect as...well...a small amount of opium. If you experience multiple sudden, sharp pains (such as one might feel when needles are inserted into one's earlobes, fingertips and toes and then manipulated), your brain is going to fight the pain by releasing its own natural painkiller, and it's powerful. That analgesic effect will last for a few hours, during which time you might find yourself "nodding off". You could take an opiate and get the same result, without having any needles inserted in you, but the doctors won't give you opiates. That's because opiates are dangerous. Whenever you start blocking "opium" receptors on any kind of regular basis, you could wind up addicted to whatever is blocking them. That's why I don't do any work that causes pain. You guys can't afford to be driving on a natural down.

But what about Qui? Dont' we have to make sure that our Qui is flowing properly along the meridians?

Qui and meridians don't exist. Qui doesn't exist, and "meridians" are lines drawn on an anatomical chart to show where to stick the needles so you don't cause nerve damage or puncture anything important in there, like a kidney.

There was a study done on this. It determined that it didn't matter where the needles were placed. Randomly-placed needles, correctly-placed needles, "fake" needles that didn't penetrate the skin...same effect, so that sort of blew the whole "Qui lines" thing out of the water.

An acupuncturist might tell you any number of things. Like "psychics", they read you. They already know you're desperate, because you're willing to have needles inserted into your body to alleviate whatever condition you have. They already know that you're probably frustrated with Western medicine. You fill out a questionnaire before the session, you answer questions, your body language reveals things. By the time you get on the table, you're an open book. They know what you want to hear. You might be told that your stress and emotional issues are causing your symptoms. Everyone has stress and emotional issues. It will be implied that you have some sort of serious medical issue, perhaps a few vague hints about one organ or another, but the acupuncturist will be careful not to come right out and say "your kidney function is impaired". Instead, you will be told that one organ or another is "blocking" your Qui and you need to come in for more treatments because your vague and serious issues cannot be resolved in a short time. You will be told that eventually your vague and serious issues will be resolved and you won't need any more treatments. The prospect of a "cure" can have a powerful effect on those who are dealing with chronic pain or injuries that are keeping them from working.

I could tell you guys that I am offering "Chinese massage" or "acupressure" and talk about "energy" and "trigger points" and push on you with my thumbs and various object hard enough to cause specific pains, and of course it would make you feel good, but not for long. I could get people coming in every couple of weeks. People would believe that they are getting better and they would tell their friends that what I do works.

"I don't know why it works, I don't care why it works. All I know is it works".

That's sad. It causes people to have faith in something that will not resolve their issues, and it costs a person time and money that could have been put to better use dealing with actual doctors.

That's why acupuncture is bullshit. Not because it doesn't work. It does...sort of. It just doesn't work long-term, and there's too much mystical hocus-pocus. If they would just admit that the treatment has a temporary analgesic effect, and that the placebo effect also plays a large part in it, that would be fine. There would still be people willing to pay for that, but not as many.

Thor 3D and Other Delights


What a great weekend! Had some company from out of town, and we had more fun in two days than I could have by myself in a month. For the first time, nobody smoked. The non-smoker didn't, of course. I didn't, which was awesome, and neither did one other person who quit a couple of months ago. That was a pretty significant change, because in the past, whenever we were around each other, one of us would light up and that would get the other one doing it. It's pretty nice when you can support each other instead of crashing the quit together.

I think the highlight was seeing Thor 3D. Highly recommended and it got good reviews - here is one of them (opens in new window). Check it out!  Click image above for show times (if "Thor" is gone, the link will just go to whatever is currently playing).

We did a lot of shopping (too much, maybe) and I replaced the Sony stereo with...you guessed it...another Sony stereo. The exact same kind, in fact LOL. Let the music return! If you don't like mine, feel free to bring in your own...it would be nice to have some variety.

Also found some beautiful Billabong gear for summer and will no doubt be finding more over the next few weeks. Back to the beach. If you know me, you know how much time I spend there. Speaking of which, we found some portable changing rooms that you can set up on the beach so you don't have to do the towel thing when you're changing into or out of a wetsuit. Very cool! All this time we never knew those things existed. Never seen one. Wierd, considering.

Picked up a new book too: "Confession of a Buddhist Atheist" by Stephen Batchelor. Very interesting but no time to read it. Will have to keep it for the bath.

My training has moved into a new phase and things are going to get a little intense. That's good news for you because it means that I probably won't put up much of a fuss about letting you massage me LOL I will be available from 12 noon 'til 8 p.m. every day for the foreseeable future.

Anyhow, all in all it was a great weekend and I miss my friends already *cries*. Seems like it's going to be forever 'til we're in Tofino together (I am arguing for a resort with a hot tub but they want to camp). I'm gonna pack it in early and get some sleep. If you'd like to set something up, you can reach me starting at 9 a.m. tomorrow (Monday).

Goodnight, Comox Valley friends! Go see Thor!



Oh wait! Almost forgot I promised to post this. Peter DeVries and Noah Cohen in Tofino. Enjoy!

Sony Hacked Again...and Again...and Possibly Again



There might be another attack on Sony Online Entertainment this weekend (story here - opens in new window)

Whether it happens or not, once was enough. Twice was ridiculous. It's almost at the point where it doesn't matter if it happens again...someone is obviously making a statement (maybe something to do with GeoHot, maybe just a new group making its bones).

I bought an XBox 360 months ago and haven't touched my PS3 since. I just like the XBox better. Turns out that was a good thing.

Yesterday, my Sony CD player stopped playing CDs. My other Sony electronics are just fine, especially the TV. The TV is awesome.

Will I stop buying Sony products forever? Nope. I still like Sony. Shit happens. I am not, however, going to do anything that involves Sony Online...the security is obviously too lax. What amazes me about this is the number of people who used their regular credit cards for online entertainment. Prepaid cards, folks...hell of a lot safer for online stuff. This isn't about victim-blaming, yes, in an ideal world we would all have a reasonble expectation of using our credit cards and not being robbed and it's not fair that we can't expect that. This is the real world, though, not the ideal world. Put a couple hundred bucks on a prepaid card, and if anyone bangs it, that's all they get. Better than having someone max out your good one.

Where to get one? Well, the monthly fees are around twenty bucks, but cheque-cashing places are a good place to get cards that can be used online. The Visa and Mastercard gift cards you get at convenience stores are meant to be used in stores, they aren't good for much online.

Speaking of prepaid stuff, prepaid cell phones are nice too, especially if you tend to lose things. Losing $100 worth of minutes hurts a lot less than someone running up an astronomical bill on a cell phone you left in a store somewhere. Grab one at the grocery store, activate it online, you're good to go.

I ran my name through the Japanese name generator and no kidding, this was the result:

My authentic japanese name is 中島 Nakashima (center of the island) 渓子 Keiko (valley child). Isn't that perfectly fitting?

Welcoming Spring a Little Early

Well guys, it's been a long, tough winter. I have been working hard both at school and in business, and to be honest, I'm ready to say goodbye to winter. I think some new specials, new services, new hours, and a little more fun are in order,

Japan Disaster Relief Donations

As you are no doubt aware, Japan has suffered a devastating earthquake and Tsunami. I encourage anyone interested in helping to donate to the Canadian Red Cross.

Since Square-Enix has temporarily taken its MMO servers offline and will not be billing its customers for the month of April, I have donated my subscription fees for Final Fantasy XI and XIV (and a little extra).

I thought it seemed fitting to also post this clip. It's Yuna's Sending Dance from Final Fantasy X (Square-Enix). Yuna is a summoner who performs this dance after the port town of Kilika is destroyed, to send the souls of the dead to the farplane. It is one of the most beautiful productions in video game history, and we have Japan to thank for it :)

How's 2011 Treating You So Far?

Well, I hope. My year's getting interesting already! Got some nice winter specials on, now to find enough hours in the day to do the sessions! One lovely night of beautiful fluffy snow and that's all :( Wish it snowed more here.

It's been nice catching up with some of you over the past couple of weeks. The holidays were a little hectic, weren't they? Feels good to settle back into the routine.

So much for New Years resolutions! I kept this year's and am getting in great shape (good enough to surf this summer), but I broke last year's and started smoking again (sigh). Not a lot, but enough to know that if I want to stop again, it won't be easy. I hate to say it, but I've missed smoking and did not enjoy being able to "taste everything again". Tasting everything can make a woman pudgy very quickly LOL!!! Might as well start tanning again, too...if I'm not going to worry about one kind of cancer, might as well not worry about the other kinds either.

Well, I'm off...working on getting my all of my FFXI jobs levelled to 40...no easy task when you have all the jobs unlocked. There are 20 in total and you can bet that took some doing - so far they're all at least lvl 24. I guess I should do some reading too...school's gonna be a bitch this semester. Contact me via the main site if you want to set something up this week. It's not like I'm going anywhere!
