@supernovice Seriously, it's amazing how this city rallied after the flood. It's definitely something to be proud of.

@Citizen Christy I guess I should explain myself. Care depends on the nature of the injury, and ice should only be left on for 20 minutes at a time. If you've got pain and swelling, take anti-inflammatories, ice on and off, rest and elevate! If it's more on the stiff side, throw some heat on (again, no more than 20 minutes at a time!) to try and loosen things up. My favourite knee icepack is homemade, 1 part rubbing alcohol to 2 parts water in double bagged freezer bag. Love, Permanently on the injured list

@Citizen Christy RICE that shit. If it's getting really bothersome you may want somebody to take a look at it.

It's the last weekend of the Calgary Stampede! I plan on drinking copious amounts of overpriced beer and eating everything deep fried and/or on a stick. And marveling at how the grounds were underwater only 3 weeks ago and yet here we are. Hell or high water indeed.

On The Spinsterhood Pie

@Trilby Seriously, what is with that. All of my exes claimed to not really like milk and yet when I go to make tea it's disappeared. And the empty carton is still in the fridge. No more, I say.

10% No one is around to judge my eating habits
15% Embarrassing netflix queue

On How to Remember Father's Day

This is so beautifully written. I just wish that I wasn't the daughter of the man down the hall who didn't make it. Reading this brings back the bitter, angry person I was at 16 when it was fresh, but I do wish you and yours all the best.

@loren smith It's a good reminder that things aren't always sunshine and roses here in maple syrup land.

@loren smith Oh, you're probably right about that. I'm probably a bad person in saying so, but tension over those issues is pretty much a given for any resource here.

It's probably been asked before, but what about Canadian diamonds?
