We must respect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.H. L. Mencken


A recovering Catholic, I would be an iconoclast if it didn't require effort. I am an anglophone male of french canadian descent.

I use words like "iconoclast" because it makes me sound smarterer.

Being married to a scientist (since 2011) also makes me sound smarterer.

Us in our restaurant

I'm a middle-manager (pointy-haired boss) for a large regional ISP in southwestern Ontario. What do I do? I HAVE PEOPLE SKILLS, dammit!

My two favourite novels are: Joseph Heller's Catch-22 and Graham Swift's Waterland.

Elvis Costello is a musical God

'2001: A Space Odyssey' is the best film, ever.

My bowling average is 152 and steady.

I like my coffee like I like my women: bitter.

On puns: Puns are like farts -- they hurt when you hold them in, so just let them out and hope they do as little damage as possible.

I was married to an Elton John fan. I understand sacrifices.
