I just returned home from meeting a guy who drove to the city from the hinterlands in his white muscle car to meet me at a downtown Starbucks. When I arrived he was a already seated with a coffee so I bough my own $2.00 coffee. We were going to go for a stroll and he said he needed to plug his meter and then asked me for parking change.
My father bought me my first TV when I was three years old...because I kept on tripping the house alarm in the morning descending downstairs to watch cartoons. In hindsight, I think cable TV may have been inappropriately relied on in my household as a babysitter. Last year I cut the cord and canceled my cable.

I'm going to share a secret: After a series of very unfortunate life circumstances beyond my control I suffered through what could be characterized as a clinical depression. The criteria often used to diagnose clinical depression is - a depression lasting longer than 3 consecutive months.
Sometimes - fact is indeed stranger than fiction. On September 7, 1979, the Buggles released the album titled The Age of Plastic with the hit song Video Killed the Radio Star. That same year I was in preschool about to enter kindergarden. I went to an experimental elementary school in the district of North Vancouver in BC called Blueridge Elementary School.
