Puis, je, fume.

It appears we had a Columbine-esque event here yesterday. Though we are well, the city spirit is bruised.

We have decided to move to the new place and spend the next four weeks repairing everything here in order to do so.

Spouse informed pornstar that he has to move as we are going to take his apartment. (He offered to pay for a year up front, but we want nothing to do with him anymore.) If our first impression of pornstar was of drooling adoration, the behaviour since has reversed any trace of this impression.

We went to see Pink Martini in concert last night. China Forbes is fucking fabulous. It was nice to forget our woes for a moment.

It's raining.

When spouse talked to the police yesterday, they found our situation highly amusing. This was not entirely comforting.

If you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with. (They mean yourself, don't they?)

Sorry about the jaggedness of my thoughts. We've got a serious month ahead of us, and it's early. Must go. Love to all....

Tell me that the incident was triggered by some crazed American. At least so inspired. It seems its the only thng we good at exporting these days. (sorry for the rant.)

Super glad you are both ok. Super glad that you've also taken charge with the pornstar. As we say down here, "Forgive my French, but..." he seems to be a big dick in more than one way.

Glad you took a break and enjoyed the concert. I hope today brings brighter sunshine in your lives despite the rain. (Raining here too.)

Snooze said...

I don't envy you a sudden move, but it seems like the best decision.

Progress is being made! This is good. I was afraid that it was gonna turn into an episode of that strangely popular TV show in Quebec where all the tennants are always cheating welfare etc....ring any bells?

CoffeeDog said...

Yes the shootings...all I could think about what Bowling for Columbine and how Canada was touted as being safe, gun free.

The Lone Rangers said...

Well banning guns really helped didnt it...

Move into the new place, take things step by step and prioritize. I would get rid of porn star tho...and fast.

Ed said...

It started in the cafeteria of the school. That gives a new meaning to "food fight". If it is possible, I hope your move goes smoothly.

Kevin said...

Or tell pornstar he can stay, but only as a house boy to run errands and such ... naked ...

It's win/win.

Patricia said...

i thought about you first thing this morning when i watched the news :(

on a lighter note, canada doesn't do chili??? wtf? i think i found my niche! what say. wanna start a chili stand? and then invest in canadian beano?

porn stars and chili and canadian farts. oh my!

The police found it amusing? I really can't wait until you can blog about what's gone on there.

As a show of solidarity, I will henceforth refrain from abusing myself to images of D.

Good luck with that takeover.

J (Me) said...

I hope you dn't have more problems. I can't stand the police, they rarely do something right in this kind of cases.

Perplexio said...

Good luck with the renovations and all that. Wifey and I are still plugging away at our new place before our furniture gets moved next weekend. It kind of feels like the end of an era... But also the beginning of a newer and more exciting one. We still have to paint the kitchen and if time permits I want to install the new faucets in both the upstairs and downstairs bathrooms.

At some point we need to change the light fixtures in the upstairs bathroom... right now they look like they belong in the dressing room of a big Hollywood production.

Polt said...

PHEW! First thing I thought of when i heard about a shooting at a college in Montreal was you, tornwordo! Glad to see you were not involved!

HUGS...

Anonymous said...

The news of the shootings made me think of you, very close to home, not a nice feeling for all Montrealers, I should think.
And goddamn pornstars eh? You can always count on them to fuck things up-heehee. Expect the worst and then be pleasantly surprised when you end up somewhere in the middle, I always say.
Best wishes-Devo

If you were vague yesterday, you sure aren't today.

Oh, and I wonder if I've seen some of this said pornstar's movies...

What's his name? Frère Jock?

I was thinking about you all day yesterday, and hoping you were safe.

I was also hoping it didn't end with 14 female student casualties again.

Sorry to hear about your house woes. You're best to move in now to minimize the craziness.

A lot of work now, but I'm sure things will turn out in the end. It always does for you two.

Perhaps your next angry missive should be forwarded to Colt Studios... ;)

From afar this situation does have a bit of comedy to it. Now, up close I'm sure it is not nearly as amusing. But it will make a great story in 20 years or so, "Remember that time we bought a place from a porn star and had to have him physically removed from it. Ah! That was funny!" Okay. Maybe 30 years.

Em said...

We could pretend that CSN meant love yourself (though there were no songs lauding masturbation that I recall...) but it was written in the free love era. Probably it was just another cheap move of the patriarchy to talk a woman into bed. I'm a mother of a daughter now and it is my sworn duty to hate songs like "It's now or never" (my love can't wait... Snort!) and "come on baby light my fire".

I'm glad you guys are moving. I wish I was your neighbor because I would help with the hideous amount of work you now are looking forward to...

Oh and you know that MadameRouge is on your side to make such a sacrifice. Impressive.

ink said...

Sounds like you've got a lot going on, Wordo. Jaggedness (great word choice, BTW, given the level of fuss and bother you're dealing with) is completely understandable under the circumstances.

Don't forget to take a few moments for yourself during all the kufuffle. Life is short ... too short sometimes -- as we've just been reminded :( -- to waste in being stressed and unhappy.

Rebekah said...

Wow.


I'm glad you're okay... but know the stress of the next few weeks is going to be hard. One day, one step at a time.

Hey, want me to come out there for Thanksgiving? I'm really good at painting...

Daniel, the Guy in the Desert said...

To be cynical, I'm surprised it hasn't been marketed in the States as dobne by a "suspected Al Qaeda terrorist". It's an awful occurrence, and Montreal will take a little while to heal. Hmm, not to get spooky, but I wonder if this what some of those crashing to earth dreams may have related to. But in those dreams, I don't recall you mentioning any injury. That's good, right?

nongirlfriend said...

I've been BAD about checking the blogs!

That shooting was horrible!

GayProf said...

Wait – Didn’t PornStar used to own the place you just bought? I am very confused by why PornStar would sell the place if he wants to keep living there.

I am glad that you and Spouse are safe! That sounded really terrible. I feel bad for Montreal.

Chunks said...

Ditto what everyone else said about the Pornstar and the shooting.

What I want to know is who the Hell is Pink Martini and China Forbes?!! Why has no one mentioned this?

Oh, and I trump your rain. Today we had flurries. Yep. Snow beats rain in weather poker! Especially in September. You called it!

(What did you think about Survivor?!) I loved it x10!

To gayprof:
He notorized that he was moving...that makes it worst.... but he will leave.

To rebekah: Come on down to paint here...not there...but I will put a cain and boulet to your ankle....here!

Kalvin said...

It does sound pretty shitty once again. But I suppose there was the pink martini break. I'll have to check up on the news, I guess I've been missing a lot over the past couple busy days.

The Wisdom of Wislon said...

glad you're ok- did wonder

sorry about the stressy times, here's to stress free ones and Pink martinis!

Anonymous said...

I hate that the only way we make the news in the US is by having a shooting.

Boo!

Good luck on the move.

I don't think the Little River Band was as high minded as you give them credit for.
