Monday School: What Would Jesus Drink?

Monday! Time once again for – yep, you guessed it – Monday School. It’s STILL “The Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense They Tried To Teach You Yesterday!” but by all means feel free to think of it as “The Sensible Alternative To Christian Superstitions” if you prefer.

Today’s Lesson: What Would Jesus Drink: Does the Bible approve or disapprove of the consumption of alcohol?

RIP Open Diary: 1998 – 2014

Open Diary was my first blog site. I started writing on it in June of 2000, almost fourteen years. For me that’s a record when it comes to writing a journal and now that era is about to end. Earlier today, the owner of the site announced that they will be shutting down in less than two weeks from today. I was crushed. I hoped the owner would take other measures (like booting the free diaries and keeping the paying customers, or even selling the site) before actually closing their doors.

I’m very split on how to feel regarding the owner’s announcement that the site will be shut down in ‘around’ two weeks. I’ve been really slow to post anything this month, being bogged down by various writing projects but this will be my second last entry. The next will be my farewell to OD and then I’m going to walk away. Clean break.

Monday School: Quebec’s Controversial Charter of Values

Its Monday, which means it’s time for Monday School! Your ‘Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense You Learned Yesterday!’

A new look going into the new year

This news is a little late coming, but when I was invited to celebrate Christmas with some close friends of the family, I decided to do something to respect that invitation: I got a haircut.

This was the first time the mop got chopped in almost a year and a half. I hadn’t gotten my hair cut in a while, mostly because the barber I used to go to passed away.

So here are the before and after pictures:

The holidays that were…

I didn’t have the kids for Christmas this year and since I’m an atheist, it really didn’t matter that much to me anyway. Leah and I have been splitting the holiday with one parent taking the week with Xmas and the other getting New Years with the boys. This year I had the kids for ringing of 2014, so that left me without a place to spend the big holiday on. Thankfully for me, I was asked to spend the holiday with a friend of mine that I’ve been hanging out with a lot lately.
