Learning to Drown | The Jess Kimura Story

My winter of love: I was not expecting a hot first date. Then I found love in a terrible pub

Ten years after my dad died, I felt rudderless – a manchild still making sense of life. But suddenly, surprisingly, I met someone with whom I had an immediate bondFor most of the winter of 2011-12, I was a slightly reluctant member of the Guardian’sspin-off dating site, Guardian Soulmates. I was still in my 20s, just about, and pouring the energy and naivety of youth into a busy social life, a career as a writer of newsprint ephemera and a room in a shared flat. I think I was also a bit lonely a...

The Best Keira Knightley Movies Ranked

Keira Knightley is the queen of the past — she is probably the one name most associated with period films over the last 20 years. In fact, it's easy to forget that Knightley is only 36, as she has both been acting for so long and also played brides in two movies ("Love Actually" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl") while still aged just 17. While historical films, especially romantic ones, are very much Knightley's specialty, she has broken out into contemporary-set film...

Wandering Ways

So, this happened. (How could I possibly turn down the opportunity to go on the only legitimate blind date that I'll ever go on in my life? With my superior Googling abilities, it's unlikely that I'll ever again be set up with someone without knowing a singular thing about them beforehand--including what they look like.)Here are the answers to the pre-date questionnaire that I had to fill out:What do you do for fun?

The Secret Ingredient

I've never thought of myself as much of a romantic. But when I was transcribing interviews this week, I kept getting coming back to this one quote from Mel (who was kind enough to let me interview her for one of my upcoming stories):  "Food is a huge tenant of how I express love, how I move socially. And when I care about someone, I want to cook for them and nourish them," she told me. "I really do believe in food that is grown with love. People who really care about our land and how they...

The Best Years

We were only one glass of wine in, but I was already drunk. That didn't make what I said any less true. They were words spoken in earnest."I really do feel like I'm living one of the best years of my life," I told Court. (These are the kind of words that settle warmly somewhere deep in my chest. Yet when I say them out loud, it's always in a hushed, almost guilty tone. If there's wood to knock on nearby, that's even better.)After a summer of uncertainty, a fall of frantic work and manic behaviou...

Something of Love

For nearly 12 seasons, I watched the top branches of the tree bloom and die and become reborn again.  From the window of the loft, it was the only visible sign of life outside, peeking carefully over the rooftops — the brick walls of our neighbour's house obstructed everything else from view. For three years, that tree was my only cue.Dropping Brock off today, after our sanctioned time together was up, I paused for a moment in the doorway and looked out the window. Three seasons have passed sinc...

Dear Dr. George Church

Dear Dr. George Church, I am a female who ovulates quite regularly (once a month, to be exact). As such, I feel like my uterus is probably a hospitable environment for a Neanderthal fetus. (I've always thought that if I were to ever give birth, I'd prefer my offspring to be furry in nature. I was originally thinking a puppy or kitten, but I guess science is neat, too.) I am concerned about a "larger cranial size" exiting my birth canal, but I like a challenge.  Since it's probably...

A Long December

As we drove back to Toronto on Sunday, the Counting Crow's Long December came flooding through the speakers of Ramsey's car. We sang along, unabashedly, shamelessly, heart-fully."It has been a long December," Ramsey said."It really has," we agreed. "It really has." [Author: Jess]

Somewhere Better

It’s easier here. I know exactly what’s expected of me.As soon as the plane lands, it’s like exhaling. Whether I like it or not, I belong. I belong amongst the throngs of cowboy hats and army uniforms and riggers crowding the baggage carousel. These are the people that I understand. I belong beside my cousin in her car, laughing at her lewd jokes interlaced with anxieties, as we attempt to navigate the icy roads of the Anthony Henday and our late twenties. I belong to northern Alberta in a way ...

2012: Year in Review

Every time I try to think of a word or phrase that embodies what 2012 was for me, I keep coming back to the same one: heartache.  But it was this heartache that enabled me to remember the grace in small things. Moving into 2013, I'm grateful for the friends who supported me when I needed them most, and for strangers that are no longer strangers. Most of all, I'm grateful that I've been fortunate enough to have been loved--and to know what it means to love. Here's to the good times in 201...

Ladyboys & Ladygirls

This is Love.

I've been feeling far too negative as of late, so I spent Sunday focusing on writing a list of things that make me genuinely happy: 1. Roadtrips 2. Hitting deadlines 3. Receiving handwritten mail 4. Coffee!! 5. Fresh-baked bread 6. Eavesdropping on teenage boys talking about girls 7. The first time wearing new clothes 8. Freshly-laundered sheets 9. New favourite songs 10. Scientific-sounding words 11. Hugs/hand-holding (and any other oxytocin-inducing physical human contact) 12...

New Years Eve House Party (Bringing in 2015 with a Bang)

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts for the last two months.  My laptop decided ten years was long enough on this earth and died on me.  We've gone to six parties since then, so I will be trying to write out those experiences and schedule them to come out once a week moving forward.  This post will discuss our little New Years Eve adventure. I've debated how to do the descriptions on the house parties.  Do I write the couple's screen name?  If I don't it really doesn't provide key informati...
