News That Made Me Shake My Head

 June 2022 - Toronto ON

Or things that make me cry/angry 😢😠

So the undistinguished a$$hole relected premier of Ontario has announced his "new" cabinet.

Who is his Minister of Diversity? His 28 year old male, white, Anglo nephew, Michael.

Ford’s nephew was given a portfolio including citizenship and multiculturalism. Clearly because he represents Ontario’s diversity and knows what it takes to attain citizenship.


And where were they for the Pride parade? At the cottage, as usual.


Chrystia Freeland was there, she is a Canadian politician and member of the Liberal Party, current deputy prime minister of Canada and the minister of finance.
Trudeau has marched in previous years.


John Tory, mayor of Toronto was there.

Close up of Double Double

Ever stood in line at Tim Hortons and heard people ordering a “double-double” coffee? or maybe even a “triple-triple”?

The phrase double-double literally means coffee with two creams and two sugars. A variant of the phrase is “triple-triple”, which again literally means coffee with three creams and three sugars. Thus commonly used when ordering coffee only.

Here in Canada, we use slang terms like Double-Double, Loonie/Toonie (dollar and two dollar coins), Twig (hockey stick), and Tims/Timmes (Tim Hortons).
