Peter Ponders Fellowship and Friends

Posted in Opinion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2017 by segarini

Ever since I was a young boy, I have had no trouble making friends. There are advantages to being easy going, nonjudgmental and able to compose a coherent (albeit brief) sentence without the need to use a script, (or at least, there should be advantages). For instance, I have around 5000 Facebook friends ™. These folks range from musicians through relatives, (crazy and otherwise), through plastic modelers all the way to former coworkers.

My first AirBnB guest has arrived. A Brooklyn girl from NYC. A very young (emphasis on the word “young”), freelance film producer who has one of her works showing at the Female Eye Film Festival. Jessica has never been to Toronto before although this is the second time one of her films has been selected to show. With only two full days, unfortunately she won’t have an opportunity to really experience The Big Smoke. However, she was asking me if I knew any clubs with live music…..REALLY!!!

Jaimie Vernon_Viletones My son’s been kicking back and chilling this summer having finished Grade 12. He didn’t want to start a post-secondary education until he could get his bearings, find a job, make some money and attack it without being tens of thousands of dollars in debt at the starting line. Currently, he’s enjoying hanging out with his friends before everyone scatters to the four winds in September. They decided this week to play paintball. The best facility in Toronto is Sgt. Splatter’s near Dufferin & Eglinton.

I am becoming a crusty antiquated old man. I don’t feel old but the numbers don’t lie. I am slowly losing touch with technology, music and fashion. I still think I’m hip but now more time is spent worrying about my hip than being hip. I guess saying hip is no longer hip. One of the highlights of the weekend was picking up four new pairs of “readers” at Dollarama and getting a new battery for my watch. Not a Fitbit, not an Apple, but a watch, which I use for telling time.  I am entering my Grandpa Simpson years.

Segarini: Mayor Bob

Posted in Opinion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 19, 2014 by segarini

No, I’m not running for Mayor…too much history of missteps, tom foolery, sex, drugs, and rock and roll. I would make the Fords look like Dominican Monks. However, I am hoping that someday we will get a Mayor who loves this city as much as you and I do.
