Put your stupid bag on your lap. Leaving it on the seat next to you, especially when the vehicle is crowded, is the most discpicable combination of laziness and passive aggression.

When you are by yourself on the bus or the streetcar or the subway or those new-fangled flying commuter zeppelins that I dream about, do not sit on the outer of the paired seats. It is rude. Move over into the seat by the window, even if you are so sure that you will be getting off before whoever sits down next to you. All you're doing is requiring the old, tired lady the extra two steps of, first, announcing her intentions to sit in the inner seat, so that you will resentfully skootch your legs to the side while avoiding eye contact and acting put-out, and, second, then pushing past you and your sullen bulk to get to the seat that is available. The requirement to move over is is especially stringent when the vehicle is full of standing folks. If you have an inner empty seat next to you in this situation, you are broadcasting your apathetic, selfish assholery. Get it together.

Do you have an old toilet? Did you put it in front of your house for the garbage truck, like, three months ago and it's still there? Have you stopped to ask yourself why? Is this a fair representation of your predicament?

In the City of Toronto you need to unscrew the tank (the top part) from the bowl (the bottom part) before the garbage guys will haul it off. The information is available here.

Mystery solved!

Look, if you don't want something anymore, put it in a garbage can. Don't set your half-empty coke can in a public planter. Don't leave the dregs of your coffee on a newspaper box. And, for God's sake, don't make a pile of old, broken crap on your front curb and put up a sign saying "Free. Please Take." Seriously, how stupid do you think we are?

I've been enjoying Kolchak: The Nightstalker on dvd and, watching the second made-for-tv movie that immediately preceded the actual series, I have determined that Kolchak is, in fact, no gentleman. Even aside from the random misogyny (older women are gross, etc), which is easy to write off as Richard Matheson's charm shining through his script, Kolchak deliberately puts the only person who's nice to him in danger, having her walk dark streets at 3am in order to lure out an elusive, supernatural, serial killer. Now, I know the point of the show is that he's an egotistical jackass and that it is more important for him to be right than helpful, but, seriously, what the hell? While I was watching the movie, all of his contemporary, crime fighting colleagues were disgustedly criticizing him in my head: Kojak, Jim Rockford, McCloud, and Columbo, who reported that his wife had some opinions on the matter. And don't even ask Batman what he thinks about all this.

If you are riding your bike on the sidewalk, address fellow side-walk users politely. Instead of dinging your bell up their asses from 30 feet away, simply say "Excuse me" and "Thank you." You're the idiot riding your bike on the goddamn sidewalk. Show some courtesy.

JESUS CHRIST YOU PEOPLE: forming a line on opposite sides of the road like marathon observers and shouting "Are you okay?" or HONKING YOUR HORN does not count as "help." Dude's in the middle of the road WITH A WALKER and his legs are SHAKING with palsy and I'm sprinting for two blocks thinking, "Surely, by the time I get there someone will have already helped him." Three guesses if that happened.
Can you understand why I'm YELLING?

It's really cold out. Like, really, really cold. That means lots of us want to use public transportation. That also means that a lot of us have to wait, in the very same cold, for said transportation. I watched three apparently packed streetcars pass me this afternoon, only to see that their butts were totally empty. Once I finally got on board one and, yup, moved through all the people clustered around the back door to the back of the car, everyone stared and disapproved. Look, we're all going to the station, right? Get out of the way so those poor schmoes at the next stop can get on the car. There's lots of room. You will still be able to get off at your stop. The worst that will happen is that you have to ask people to get out of your way so that you can exit. But you know what? They'll move. Talking to other people to express your needs and wants? Try it sometime. In the meantime, make some room for the frozen. On your return trip, that'll be you.

They aren't just something that justifies forcibly dragging homeless people off the street, as y'all seem to think. They are about everyone. Stop running around like everything is normal, 'cause it's not. IT'S EXTREMELY COLD! As in, "dangerous."
Having said that, why did I have to go in and teach today in the middle of a blizzard? Stupid U of T.

It's a fact.
Don't be dissuaded when people are like, "No, February is the shortest month because it has the fewest days." They have no idea what they are talking about. Look into your sad, grey heart and know that this is true.

Stop telling each other what to do in the name of feminism! Feminism is about living your life the way you want to and allowing others to do the same. So get off the body fascism, already.

It's just as okay to wear short skirts as overalls. It's just as okay to wear bubblegum lip gloss as to never wear make up. It's just as okay to be monogamous as it is to be poly. It's just as okay to shave your legs as to never shave your mustache. Hell, it's okay to meet your stockbroker husband at the door to your suburban bungalow while wearing nothing but saran-wrap, as long as it's what you really want.

Feminism means I can wax and dye my public hair into a BIG PINK HEART if I damn well please.
