I therefore begin this article with a song extract: The Living End – Prisoner Of Society «Well we don’t need no one to tell us what to do Oh yes we’re on our own And there’s nothing you […]Lire la suite Imprisoned in a tunnel vision
#youveearnedanarticle I fully assume my caption, at the risk of jeopardizing any possibility of career advancement at the Ministry of Health and Social Services, the MSSS (as they call it, they, who love acronyms), for which I work indirectly though not too much nowadays. Believe me, I am not bashing my employer (Centre Jeunesse : Youth […]Lire la suite Fuck you Barrette. But please be happy, it seems badly needed in your situation.
Be warned – parental advisory content (OK not that bad but I will absolutely swear). I love Costco, it’s one of my favourite stores. Since I became ill, it has become a must in my life.
