Colonoscopy cruise – all aboard!
Thank you to those who emailed to say they enjoyed reading about my “colonoscopy cruise” in April 2015 Readers Digest Canada. (If you missed it or you’re contemplating a “voyage to the end of the colon,” you can check it out here: Read more... →
Conveyor belt klutz
Have you ever tangled with a conveyor belt? I don’t recommend it.
I was a conveyor belt klutz. I promised to share more tales of my factory floor fiascos. Well, here’s one for the klutz record books. Who knew sorting poultry parts could be so dangerous? […]
Trailer factory screw-up
I am a writer. I consider this a good thing because there is a limit to the actual damage you can do to yourself or others while sitting at a keyboard. This cannot be said of some of the other jobs I have attempted over the years. I’ve shared tales of my employment fiascos with […]
George Clooney Crush
It’s been a tough year for women like me—women with a George Clooney crush. As long as the “silver fox” was out there being his commitment-phobic, bachelor/playboy self, each of us could nurse our secret fantasy. We just knew that someday, perhaps in an airport concourse or a busy Starbucks, we’d look up and spot […]
Here we are, well into the lusty month of May, and I haven’t had anything to say for months. Not here, anyway. A rep of the company that hosts my website actually phoned the other day to remind me that web crawlers won’t find my blog unless I post new content. Hmm. That makes it […]

I’ve already shared some of my intentionally bad poetry in […]
Coming up daffodils

Me and the R.C.M.B.
I’ve been goofing off. Instead of writing new Beaver Bluff stories or editing drafts of others, last week I took off to beautiful Victoria, B.C. I had a wonderful time with my friends—and met some new ones. Including this guy. Here’s me and the R.C.M.B. (Royal […]
Who am I? Or rather, who AREN’T I?
Hi! I’m a Canadian writer, humorist and performer—and the author of Beaver Bluff: The Librarian Stories. That sounds like a simple message to convey. It might be, if my name weren’t Judy Millar. Carving out an internet identity when your name is Judy Millar is a huge problem because […]
