With the title being "Walk of Pride", I assumed it was written by a gay man to a gay man.
Guess what? I showed up at the place with a letter from my lawyer stating that if it wasn't paid in five days we would be taking it to court. I got paid. Thanks for the help. Good to see some comments being helpful!
Because David Suzuki and Al Gore are successful at what they do that means the science of climate change is horse feathers? Not sure I follow the logic there A.R.
The anthropogenic (man-made) contribution to CO2 in the atmosphere is tipping the balance toward a global warming trend. You know CO2 is a greenhouse gas. Venus has an atmosphere of over 90% CO2 (carbon dioxide) and an average surface temperature set on broil. So the more greenhouse gases there are in the air, the warmer the planet. I don't understand what's hard to understand about that. Even if one believes the warming trend is natural (I don't) the extra emissions added on by human activity is surely going to exacerbate the situation.
Unfortunately for those looking for a warmer climate around here, you're going to be disappointed. That big icy island called Greenland is melting and as trillions of gallons of fresh water pour into the North Atlantic, that conveyor belt of warm southern water called the Gulf Stream will nudged southward enough to turn the Eastern Seaboard fairly frosty and Britain will start to resemble Norway climate-wise.
Boru1014 didn't submit this Bitch.
@joeblow: of course the Stantec repot doesn't define "sprawl". I'm not sure it even uses the term. But the terms regional centre, suburban area and rural area are all clearly defined based on the regional plan. And the report makes it pretty clear that if we continue to focus most of our growth in the suburban and rural areas, it is going to cost us all billions. But you know that, cause you read the report, right?
And since you read the report, you also know it addresses policing costs. @hipp5 has done a good job of explaining why your simple HRP vs. RCMP analysis doesn't cut it. Since more people work and shop in areas covered by HRP than live there, you can't just compare costs on a per capita basis.
No one is saying that everyone has to live in urban areas, or apartment buildings (my family lives in a house, in the middle of the urban core). All the report says is that we can't have the majority of our growth continue to be in areas where we can't afford to support it.
Interesting question ALoBar...I was going for the not-so-subtle play on the word "high", but I stand by my recommendation.
I also consider myself to be a theatre lover generally, and a *Halifax* theatre lover specifically. In my six year of reviewing for The Coast (notice the word *reviewing*, as I am a *reviewer*, not a *critic*) there have been very few plays that I would consider a waste of my precious-to-me time.
I have also determined that the word count in a capsule review (which is what my job entails) is too small to allow for an in-depth accounting of the pros and cons of a production, so I consciously choose to emphasize the positive.
I try to give a bit of the flavour of a play so that readers can choose what appeals to them.
truth is op you're NOT done addressing this or, you know, you'd be done. So be done with it. Let the person live their lives how they choose and you live yours. Stop trying to police how THEY want to deal with you. Unless they get into your PHYSICAL personal space or try to frame you for a crime you didn't commit, their conversations don't involve you.
Unorthodox way of seeing your situation? Yes. But other people's opinion of you is actually NOT YOUR BUSINESS.
sorry i assume the friend WAS the girl he was with.
If not, it was his trusty wingman trying to help him secure the affections of the girl he DOES want to be with without the interruptions of a jealous girl who can't let go.
In any event, you DO need to back off.
given the underlying hostility coupled with the emotional state you're in, I doubt you did a very good job of hiding your insecurities from the "booty call" (come on op.. she's probably more than that and we both know it) I'm guessing you made your feelings about as plainly known as if you'd spoken them aloud.
And his current love interest was probably feeling understandably uncomfortable.
I think you DID overstay your welcome, quite frankly. You're like that third wheel that doesn't let a couple have any time alone.
Sorry red leaf. I'm going on what YOU TOLD US. That you are attracted to this man, that you assume any female he chooses to see must be a booty call ("who's really nice btw... so don't be a dick...." come on... if those aren't the words of a jealous girl who HOPES he WILL be a dick i don't know what are. ) and finally that this poor girl felt so uncomfortable and against the wall, she finally spoke up for herself and said "ok angry, jealous girl, it's time for you to leave.."
It's an awkward situation you shouldn't have been in.
Is there anything Kate Watson won't "Highly recommend"?
saying mean things about you is not keeping you from living your life.
There are probably a lot of people who say mean things about you. You just don't know it yet. It's what people do to each other. So why don't YOU let them lead THEIR lives if this is how they choose to live them? Since when is someone else's choice of conversation topic any of your business?

Another parodic masterpiece Penis, one combining felicity of style, classical erudition, philosophical insight and mordant wit all set within a sensitive, compelling yet utterly captivating surreal framework. Could one ask for more?
A pleasure as always.
I was just watching one of my corbies through my binos, chowing down on either a large mouse or a small rat. Kinda cool in Walking Dead sort of way.

"Your failure to see how I can claim a belief in the sanctity of human life yet state it is secular in nature rests on your antecedent failure to distinguish morality from religion. "
In other worlds, my Spongebob Squarepants briefs - laced with emissions and indigenous smegma, retarded by the lack of any particular sexual perversions I might invoke- provide, not merely, support for a well-rounded set of buttocks, but I view the stains as an ointment for proctological flagellation. Gastrological eructations are not merely fiddle music (i.e. space based phazymes caused by a diet rich in legumes) but functional in relieving stress upon the aperture that produces the volumes of my thought itself. I see my nonconformist flatulence amazes you.
You mustn't fear to be poorly hung when the command "Get Naked" rears it's immutable invitation to scornful jeering. For example, one can pray "I'm b-b-b-b bad to the bone" without applying a phallophobic approbation. In this context I used Lasik surgery to appear more monumental in my own eyes. No baby magma here, anymore.
My broadening arse forever laments the scarcity of "Roamin' in the Gloamin'" 78s and perceives the neglect of Harry Lauder and the resonance of current dance music to be an awful blow to my crested helm. I see that he who intends to order "ching-chong" without the "ding-dong" will forever question the contents of the Lo Mein, and reject the policy of "30 Minutes or it's Free" It is spectacular because it reduces the amount of MSG but not the filler. i.e. bean sprouts. It strives to be heart-healthy and neglects taste. However, the principle of Edam for Boys is simply empty calories, and to envy them is genius. A recreational vehicle must be driven across the continent, for some distance. From the pup tent and ambulance I decried the "paucity of cumin in the Golan Heights" That was Harry Lauder's joint. It was never vicious but it was diabolical.
I treasure my ballplay.
*Sharp eyed readers will recognize this as a the title of a novel by Aphra Behn, Englands first female literary writer whose charming epitaph:
"Here lies a Proof that Wit can never be
Defence enough against Mortality."
is a lesson we can all cleave unto.
Oh yeah. I'd gun her down, plant a 9 and a bag of rock on her and call it a righteous shoot.

Nowt wrong with the Norseman, Kirk.

Thanks Shitty. I now have a mental image of this bitch:
Screeching "Don't tase me bro!"
She's got it coming.
It's too bad that you can't arrest Mother Nature, bang her head off the police cruiser, and interrogate her with a rubber hose until she agrees to produce the palm trees. And if she doesn't conform, you can always charge her with "weed cultivation for the purpose of trafficking", and give her a 2 year minimum, cause you know that bitch is growing more than six plants. Right, Tim?
