Let’s Guess Anna’s Ethnicity: Part II

Let’s Guess Anna’s Ethnicity: Part II

I got my results back!

I have to admit, they were a little different than I was expecting. All my life I have had people tell me that I must have some African descendants in my lineage somewhere. Mostly due to the curly hair in my family. It’s a pretty dominant feature in myself, my brother, and a couple of my cousins.

Now, I have learned that this is likely not the case.

Dear winter,

Enough is enough. I think it is safe to say that everyone is done with your stark, glistening beauty. But it’s March, now, so fuck right off.

Where Do Married Lesbians Go On Dates?

Where Do Married Lesbians Go On Dates?

IKEA, of course.

Whenever Lucien and I are around an IKEA, we just have to have our token date of walking the labyrinth, then finishing it off with a hot dog and frozen yogurt. Before we left Vancouver to come back to Alberta, we went for a walk in dream land.

These are some of the things we added to our wish list for our someday home. One that doesn’t have wheels.

7 Foods You Must Try in Vancouver

Arguably, the best food in the world can be found in and around Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Authentic, sometimes century-old, family recipes have made their way here along with the people that have immigrated, from near and far.

The accessibility to quality ingredients (such as fresh fish, organic produce, and free-range, organic meats) has exposed us Westerners to the very best dishes from Cuba, India, Ethiopia, France, Italy, China, Mongolia, Korea, Lebanon, you name it…

Not to mention the amazing cultural experiences that come along with it.

Technology on the Road

Technology on the Road

It can be tricky to stay appropriately connected with the outside world when parked in the middle of nowhere for months on end. We have been in some pretty remote places. Lue has even worked up in the Northwest Territories. I didn’t get to go on that adventure.

To give you an idea of our isolation, we stayed in places like:

Five Years on the Road: A Synopsis

Five Years on the Road: A Synopsis

 2012

Since 2012 Lue and I have been living full time in an RV. We started off in a 28′ Sunseeker motorhome with 2 cats, 1 of which was geriatric. Seriously, Tigger was 23 years old but other than being completely blind, was pretty healthy. The other one, Stitch, was a rambunctious 3-month-old kitten that we rescued from an industrial area parking lot.
