The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

Red Maples,  the quintessential Canadian tree.

In my humble opinion Fall is the prettiest season.

I saw these dolls at the store other day, and I thought they were cute. Then it dawned on me. This is the first time I’ve ever seen a doll in a wheelchair.

I’ve seen dolls of various ethnicities,races,colours and creeds, but never a doll in a wheelchair. Or a doll that uses crutches for that matter.

I mean this is 2014, how sad is that?

Happy thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians. I hope you  enjoy the food,fun and family on this legally mandated paid holiday. 

Ode to my tree

My tree is gone, it was cut down.

The city came to claim it.

I though they would remove it, in one full swoop.

Instead they hacked at it and maimed it.

My beautiful Norwegian Maple is now a pathetic stump.

The lawn is covered in saw dust and my house looks like a dump.

I really miss my tree and it really makes me sad.

Because looking back that Maple was the best tree I ever had.

GPOY: Me wondering what in the hell I was thinking when I signed my kids up for 8:30AM swimming lessons on a Saturday morning.

Time to do your Happy dance.

When my son wears my Halloween hat it looks like a mask.

Last night I ordered 3KG of Halloween candy online. I hope It’s enough, I need to feed two adults and a few of those those costumed kids that ring the doorbell on the 31st.

Really Subway!? This commercial is so lame. Women should try to stay slim so they can wear skimpy Halloween costumes. C’mon, there has got to be a better way to sell sandwiches than sexist and clichéd commercials.

Just for the sake of curiosity, does anyone find this stupid commercial funny?
