Eau Du Égout

I hope you are enjoying the long weekend.

Friday gone was Poutine Day – Google thought it was April 11 maybe, but who are they to tell me when I can have a Poutine celebration! Is eating traditional Poutine at every meal the same like/as having Mcdonald’s at every meal?

My favourite variation is kimchi fries which may or may not have been inspired by poutine. I’m guessing it was. Fries with anything on them remind me of Poutine (I almost said Putin but I don’t think he’d taste good with kimchi or curds and gravy). ‘cept for chilli fries.


Then sings my soul
My Saviour God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art


Do you remember when I used to work in the sewers scraping gunk off the walls and putting it into jars for pleasure parties? (some people enjoy the smell.) One day, while working, I found all these baby porpoises and manatees and I had to take them home. I couldn’t use my bathtub for a few days until I bought an inflatable pool. Do you know how hard it was for me to train water animals; especially since I cannot swim?


Blessed assurance
Jesus is mine
Oh, what a something

of glory divine
Heir of salvation
Something of God
Born with His Spirit
washed in His blood

This is my story
This is my song
Praising my Saviour
All the day long

(sounds boring!)


So I completed my first sketch and my classmates didn’t laugh. The teacher said it sounded like I was writing for a film (that made me feel good #smileyface). But I didn’t execute well on the exercise which is what counts. Today I learned … What works in one place, for example adding lots of details to paint a picture in a short story, does not work well for a sketch.

The less “action” the better. You only add enough detail to support the dialogue. For example, I don’t need to write about the kind of chips a character is eating. And I didn’t realize how much detail there was until I read it in class. Lesson learned. Our next assignment is to write a monologue.

I am looking forward to the day when I can say:

Not tonight honey.
I have a diarrhea.

I will literally shit the bed!

(Observation: Doo doo is brown. Mostly.)
