Were You Going to Marry Corey or Bryan?

Bryan Adams

I got my first real six-string Bought it at the Five and Dime Played it til my fingers bled Was the summer of 69… If you were a Canadian kid growing up in the 80s, you had a teenage-girl-crush on one of two music artists. You were either going to marry Corey Hart or Bryan [...]

Bad moms, bad dads, bad grandmas, bad aunts, bad neighbors, bad EVERYBODY – and also everybody who hasn’t yet embraced their inner badness, which is to say, EVERYBODY, full stop… GO VOTE. Voting is the new good. Voting is also the old good. Voting is NECESSARY. Go do it.

Why I Vote

By on April 27, 2011
Vote.

9,748,546. That is not the balance on my credit card. That, my friends, is the number of eligible voters who did not cast a ballot in the 2008 election.  Almost 42% of us. I guess we decided we had something better to do. We stayed home in droves.  In fact, more people did not vote [...]

Bad Moms Love Hockey, Eh

Hockey has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I didn’t play it as a young girl, no, and not just because it wasn’t heard of in the eighties. I was not what you would deem to be an “athletic” child, unless you’re counting the speed at which I [...]

If the Political Parties Were Bad Moms…

Mom the Vote

It’s election time in Canada and there are plenty of highly criticized tools, like CBC’s Vote Compass, that you can use to figure out how you should vote. If none of those do it for you and you still don’t know where to place your X on May 2 (you are going to vote, right? [...]

I don’t know about you, but at my job, I get 20 paid vacation days and 5 paid sick days per calendar year. If I were still on mat leave or a stay-at-home mom, that number would be reduced drastically – like, to zero. So how many days off should our politicians get? How’d They [...]

Bad Mamas Are Also Lazy When It’s Cold

It’s -29 outside. Twenty Nine Degrees Below Zero. That’s Celsius, but really, who cares. -29 might as well be -400. Either way, I’m sure as hell not going out in it. It would be one thing if it was just me. I can suck it up, put on snow pants and my enormous fluffy parka [...]

Bad Moms Tweet With Love

I spend waaaaaaay too much time on Twitter but truth be told, Twitter seems to be more my medium than does my personal blog. 140 spaces seems to suit me well and I’m not sure if it’s because I’m wee in stature and therefore correspondingly brief with words* or because I love a good challenge.

We do, we really do love our Canadian stuff. My childhood (and probably yours) wouldn’t have been complete without the following Canadianisms to shape and influence our growing brains:

Oh Canada, The True North Strong And Bad

Did you know that there are more people in the state of California than there are in the entire country of Canada? Did you know Canada is the biggest supplier of oil to the US? (And we don’t dump it into major bodies of water – take that BP.) Did you know Canada is to [...]

Happy Canada Day, eh! Hey, I’m allowed to make fun of the way we speak because I am Canadian (you know I am). Wow. That first statement is rife with Canadiana that my foreign friends may not detect. Oh Canada, we are so into inside jokes. Anyway. Today is the day to celebrate mapletasticity, baconisim, [...]

Good news, you guys! We now know what mom jeans are! MamaKaren tipped us off to this post, which explains, in detail, and with pictures, exactly what makes a mom jean.

As a Canadian, I’d just like to say this: we are in no way responsible for Celine Dion. We disavow Celine Dion. America, please take her, and her babies. They can live in Vegas. She can buy them diamond-encrusted binkies there. You can read more about Celine’s Alors! J’adore to have more babies! project at [...]
