Three Goddesses in the Garden: A Pieces, A Cancer, A Scorpio


My Mama, my Auntie and I. This is kind of a joyous epilogue to this…so my epilogues don’t always have to be so disturbing, Mary Jane, er Jones 😉 , dear friend. Mama, the Pisces, the one completely submerged, I wish she had known herself better just as I would love to know more of her (and do now through … Read More

Things Forgotten from the Record (some of life-changing importance)


1. Jima – we really are sisters – well, related by blood quite closely!  Though neither either of our extended clan have anything to do with the trucking industry.  My real paternal grandpa married a Catherine who was the daughter of your dad’s brother.  AND apparently my grandpa on the same side had lengthy conversations with your dad’s dad quite … Read More

Tori Amos on Female Masturbation


I’m working on the first post for a new series called “but could not address”, consisting of letters to friends, you, and myself – they are intended to fill in some gaps regarding my living circumstances that I, albeit unintentionally, have not addressed! In the meantime, I’ve been thinking about modern poetry by women. I haven’t come across any female … Read More

New apartment!  All alone! Exactly what you wanted! Thinkgs to cut up, photos to take! Why am I not the happiest girl on the planet right now? Restlessness..a nagging itch that I cannot help but scratch until I break the skin.  How long will the scabs last?  Is that simply mine to decide?  Shut up and be happy? Hopefully I … Read More

Change is a Good Thing!

jenniferlreimerEast Van, Mad Music, Uncategorized

Many changes have descended upon me – this time around, really great ones.  Indeed, when it rains, it pours.  I often love the rain that falls from the sky, and never thought to put two and two together, realizing this idiom does not have to be negative! For one, my two months of homelessness (couch-surfing and hospital stay, not nights … Read More

Last night, my arrival back to the ward from this Internet café across the street where I will spend my “pass” time, as all I can fathom needing other than what’s provided for me – a shower (with a velcro curtain…I was previously unfamiliar with this creative method of attachment!), a toothbrush and toothpaste (I was at the point of … Read More

Practice of Madness, Stream of Consciousness


1:46 am She wonders if she will ever sleep like those people that go jogging when she thinks, “damn, the birds are chirping!  Unsuccessful.”  Like her high school best friend does.  She remembers the last night they spent together, after the party. “I’m soooooo sleee-py!”  High note on the “e” even though she couldn’t sing if a shotgun was pointed … Read More

Similar to Wangechi Mutu? Feminist mixed media/collage art…


Very honoured to hear that from Lily, though it’s a bit of a stretch! :kisss Check out her exhibit “You Call This Civilization?!?” at the Art Gallery of Ontario, if you’re in the area.  I’ll miss it myself, but will join her in asking the same question every day.  Many times, every day.  Sometimes so many that I start crying. … Read More

Saturday Afternoon in Vancouver Galleries on Granville

jenniferlreimerEast Van, Transcend, Uncategorized

[cincopa AENAyQq9ITut] …indeed, Saturday was more fun.  I would, however, not pay over $4000 for a series of identical papers that Leonard Cohen scribbled on, no matter how much I love him.  Free fun.  Until we got to the market :matabelo: Downloading: MGMT’s Congratulations. I would buy it off iTunes but I’m very “po”, as Oprah would put it, at … Read More

Bureaucracy: My Full-Time Job


…after tomorrow I’m quitting.  My credit was on its way down the toilet again, and I managed to hit the stop button by making a couple of calls (that took a couple of hours each, waiting to speak to managers in each case) and being very firm.  I hope this did something to improve my self-worth, which has been slipping … Read More

Praising Slow: Bi-Weekly Thought


As I have not yet had time to ruminate on the answers/questions/thoughts from the weekly thought posted the Sunday for last, let’s make it bi-weekly, to give ourselves a moment to breathe, and to match my sexuality!…more on the discussion later this evening.  For now, I have a bone to pick… scars xoxo

Sexism and Doubleday Alive and Well!: Evidence from the everyday life of a 26 year-old

jenniferlreimerFeminism and Madness, Mad Society, Uncategorized

I have never lived with another couple before (unless we count (step)parents – let’s not count anyone that we would be horrified to see making love/sleeping together/having sex/fucking [which are all different, of course…]…that eliminates sextegenarians and those older than them, right?). “You’re being ignorant and sexist!” I sit on the couch after planting more bulbs – I found a … Read More

New Weekly Thought Up a Day Late! (Discussion of last week’s to be posted tomorrow – the straggler ;) )


See the sidebar! –> “Let’s talk men, women, and the expression of emotion.  Lately I’ve been thinking a lot (and getting a little jealous) about physical fighting to “voice” one’s anger/frustration/struck nerves/etc. – something men “can do” (according to social norms), but not women.  Often, they trade black eyes, and are best buddies again moments later.  Women, not having this … Read More

Blogger’s Showroom – Melikes


Blogger’s Showroom gets top marks from me…even if a little buggy 😆 – for example, I would really like to put a badge to the site on this page, but have never been able to get the badges link to work.  You can see my badge there, though!  I just uploaded a little retrospective album (really, little, 9 pictures, that’s … Read More
