    Thank you I really appreciate it. I suppose taking about twice the amount of needed courses is a little too much for me lol.

    Ah, (checking the 'About me' section), you are a scientist after all, I wondered ever since you told me about raw eggs...I think it was you anyway.
    Will Bowie ever release another album? Went to see him in the pouring rain in Wellington,NZ, at the beginning of his final tour (I think). So glad to have been there, and that he joined us all out there in the rain. Ahh, the memories....
    He did make such a good Goblin King too....

    I've felt a bit strange after drinking some weird energy drink that says it has Nitrous Oxide injected into it, and haven't felt like writing since. It's probably just because it's a strong energy drink and I had caffeine earlier today. Nitrous oxide wouldn't really do anything extra if added to a drink, would it? Isn't it used in food sometimes anyway? Just thought you might know.

Uncertain Fate for Transgender Rights Bill

by OrphanPip on 11-27-2012 at 09:11 PM
I've decided to write a bit about a current bill, that is currently before a Parliamentary committee, which would make explicit the extension of Canada's Human Rights provisions to transgender persons.

The bill hasn't got much media attention at all, and like usual transgender issues are ignored unless they are being used for some salacious thrill on daytime talk shows. There are two main reasons why I wanted to try and do a little publicity for the bill.

What I've Been Up To; Thoughts on Graduate School

by OrphanPip on 10-29-2012 at 10:22 PM
Hello Forumites,

It has been a while since I last communicated with everyone through one of my self-indulgent blog posts. Unfortunately, I don't really have any pressing concerns to spill my heart out about, which leaves that most mundane of blog genres: the update.

Leaving aside my romantic misadventures in recent days, I've enjoyed the experience of meeting lots of new people through my MA cohort. As a Montreal local, I get to play the role of guide quite often,

Making an odd decision.

by OrphanPip on 02-10-2012 at 08:17 PM
So, I haven't done a blog in a while, but I'm going to seek lit-net's advice on a subject. Some of you may know that I've been working part-time on a B.A. since completing my microbiology degree. I've never really liked lab work, and though I love science, I don't love doing science. At first I started studying the arts, political science and literature primarily, as a hobby taking advantage of subsidized education in Quebec.

Now, I will receive my B.A. in April, and on a whim I

Save my Forest!

by OrphanPip on 04-22-2011 at 01:25 AM
Well for a little while I've known about this weird society dedicated to the protection of a little forest on the Western part of the Island of Montreal.

The thing about the forest is that it happens to be named after my family. It is on the part of the island where my family came and settled in 18th century, back then we had some money and clout in the region. 200 years later we were a bunch of dairy farmers, time changes everything .

A little nagging part of me

The Red Light is Just About Put Out

by OrphanPip on 04-05-2011 at 03:16 PM
I am inspired to write about a local news item I read today.

There is a street in Montreal officially called Boulevard Saint-Laurent, but most often affectionately called the Main. It has historically been the dividing line between English and French Montreal, as a result it was a no man's land that created room for immigrants to carve out their own space in the city. As a result, the Main was also a street that was largely populated by some of the poorest members of Montreal society.
