HOT SHOTS – AUG. 22ND, 2016

Dear Ones, 

I’ve been working here for what I think of as a very long time and I finally got the promotion I’ve been working very hard to earn: I’m the greeter.

Hot Shots – Aug. 8th, 2016

Dear Ones, 

Yesterday Kristy picked me up and took me away from my homework desk and to Deer Lake Park for the Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival and I don’t know if you’ve ever had the opportunity to sit near Kristy when she’s oh so happy, but it’s like nothing else on earth.  You look over at her and she’s positively glowing and it emanates out of her and gets onto you, too.

Hot Shots – Aug. 14th, 2016

Dear Ones, 

This week I went to Brunswick with Kristy and Kiki and those two are little water babies I tell you.  I’ve never gone to the beach with Kristy before, but Kiki is downright ferile and when I go anywhere outdoors with her all I have to do is turn my back for one moment and she’s gone and she’s so far away she can’t even hear me.

HOT SHOTS – JULY 24TH, 2016

Dear Ones, 

The Hot Shots may not churn out like clockwork over the few weeks we have between now and school starting, only due to all of us moving our schedules and tasks around so that everyone gets time off to bask in the sun.

HOT SHOTS – JULY 11TH, 2016

Dear Ones, 

This weekend it was Blanca’s birthday and  Heather made her her favourite cake and also Ellen who is in charge of things in the warehouse made her her favourite cake which is called tres leches.  The thing is that the cakes looked REALLY different even though they were the “same.”  Ellen’s cake was iced with whipping cream and decorated with halved cherries and the cake that Heather made well….the first thing I said to her was “Heather, you’re supposed to put your cake in the oven and bake it.”  So I gather that this recipe for three milk cake has something to do with baking a sponge cake that is then soaked in three milks: evaporated milk, condensed milk and heavy cream.   Ellen’s cake had the appearance of being a rather rich yummy cake, and Heather’s looked like she tried to bake it in the dishwasher.  But you know what, it tasted damn good because of the soaking part.  And Heather’s got an extra soaking so it was extra good.  And there was more of it because it looked weird.  So….winning.

Dear Ones,

Last week I had the absolute privilege of driving all up and down the east side of Vancouver Island meeting people I’ve talked to on the phone for YEARS.  I was super nervous to meet people I hadn’t really met and super nervous to drive, something I don’t really do a whole lot of.  In fact, Kristy taught me how to drive and was only just this morning telling someone in here about how I almost killed us both.

HOT SHOTS – JUNE 19TH, 2016

Dear Ones, 

Last weekend while I as working I was dreaming up evil revenge ideas for my now previous landlord just because while his family was just lovely, he was the worst landlord I’ve ever had.  I looked up legal recourse for having a crappy landlord on the internet and by accident found all kinds of vile things people do when they leave rental units.  Jon was encouraging me enact revenge, and then our driver John came in and he Dadded me.  To Dad someone is to guide them in a fatherly way.  I would normally resent such guidance, but not from John our driver, a truly kind and integral person who is deeply ethical and motivated to bring good change to the world.  Jon was encouraging me to leave raw chicken in the walls, and John encouraged me to take the high road.  It was like I had a little angel and a little devil on my shoulder, both named Jon/John.  Yesterday when I saw John, I ran towards him and squeezed him around the middle very hard and he said, “What are you doing?” and I said “THANK YOU FOR DADDING ME!!!!”

HOT SHOTS – JUNE 5TH, 2016

Dear Ones, 

This week I’ve had lots of moments to truly cherish the people who live above me, due to the incredible fortune of having found a new place to live that is just the cutest apartment you’ve ever seen.  I know some of you don’t live in Vancouver, but those of you who do, you know or have heard that for tenants in this town, it’s rough out there!  That’s why I ended up where I am, because it was above ground and had no carpet and had big windows……etc.

HOT SHOTS – MAY 29TH, 2016

Dear Ones,

I was talking to my Auntie Mom this week, she’s moved to Ottawa and it’s very far away than just Burnaby so now we have conversations on the phone that last for hours.  We talk about books, mostly.  It might seem strange to talk to another person about books for hours, but that’s what we do.  We also talk about family and there’s a person in our family who’s become someone absolutely unrecognizable due probably to their choice in partner.  It has struck me in this undoing that one must be very careful who they love, because it can change anything.
