MARCH 20 .. œ The bomb went off! … Bad News, the afterlife is just Like your lousy life Swimmer can’t get over being groped at beach DEAR MISS LONELYHEARTS: I got groped at the beach. I was standing in the water in my bikini with a lot of other people around and this guy came up behind me, cupped both my cheeks, squeezed them and then dived under the water and swam underwater until he was 20 feet away. I pointed and yelled out, “ That sleaze groped me!” but he dived under again and swam farther away, and nobody really heard me. I don’t know what he looked like because I only caught a flash of him between dives. I get so mad every day thinking about it. If I ever found him, I’d belt him in the face. — Violated by Groper, Wolseley Dear Violated: This creep would be so pleased to know you are reliving the groping experience and getting shocked and angry all over again on a daily basis. He thought he would only get to do it once, so take back your power now. See a counsellor for a debriefing session and work through this so it’s no longer of any importance in your life.

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts: I have a big pain in the butt that happens to be human: it’s my newly widowed father- in- law, who has come to live with us. He’s trying his best to take over as the head of our household. Today he said majestically from the big, ugly recliner he brought with him: “ I think we’ll have roast beef and Yorkshire pudding for dinner this Sunday,” and then added with a big smile that he was going to buy the roast that minute. My husband and I had planned a picnic, so I piped up and told him he didn’t need to do that because we already had plans to go to the beach on Sunday as a family for a picnic. He said loudly, “ Well, I’m going to stay home and cook a roast for the family and you can have some when you get back.” I said “ Fine, do what you like!” and he said, “ Fine!” Then my husband came home and his father said, “ Throw me the keys. I’m going out to buy this family some real food!” That took the cake, because I’m the vegetarian in the family. I said, “ Don’t give him those damn keys,” and the fight was on. I want my father- in- law out, and my husband doesn’t have the guts to tell him to get his own place and drive his own car. He’s got pots of money but he’s cheap, and he doesn’t have to pay rent here. — Want “ Dad” Out, Elmwood Dear Want Dad Out: You need to be the “ heavy” in this situation. If your husband kicks his own father out, there could be irreparable painful and permanent damage between them, so you have to insist his dad gets his own place and his own vehicle. There’s no love lost between you two now, so he’ll just be mad at you, and later, relieved. Actually, your carnivorous father- in- law could be quite happy to get away from the bossy vegetarian cook, and he’ll be able to date ladies in privacy when he’s ready. miss lonelyhearts haiku horoscopes up town WINNIPEG FREE PRESS œ THURSDAY, JULY 23, 2015 2 ¥ EDITOR: Jill Wilson jill. wilson@ freepress. mb. ca 204- 697- 7018 LISTINGS: Linda Mertin linda. mertin@ freepress. mb. ca Published by the Winnipeg Free Press, a Division of FP Canadian Newspapers Limited Partnership1355 Mountain Avenue, Winnipeg, MB, R2X 3B6 the buzz WE PICK THE BEST OF THE WEEK up town MAUREEN SCURFIELD lovecoach@ hotmail. com TOP 10 By Jonathan Ball, Registered Fraud haikuhoroscopes. com Ant- Man Scott Bagshaw Weekend box office 1.

If you’re in the former category, this week’s première of the E! network series I Am Cait ( Sunday, July 26, at 8 p. m.) will likely find a spot on your must- see list. In keeping with the tradition of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and other series featuring the American family most famous for being famous, Jenner’s new eight- part series will follow her daily life and all the complications being transgender, and by- extension Kardashian, can bring. RANDALL KING / MOVIES Great war yields great film Montana’s own Andy Smetanka isn’t exactly a local filmmaker, but he gets honorary status as the guy who provided the animated sequences of Guy Maddin’s My Winnipeg , and thus deserves attention for his animated feature documentary of the First World War, And We Were Young, at the Gimli Film Festival, July 24 and 25 at the Gimli Unitarian Church Aspire Theatre. Both screenings are at 10 a. m. BEN MacPHEE- SIGURDSON / FOOD Local chef readying new resto Chef/ restaurateur Scott Bagshaw, who runs Deseo Bistro in Fort Rouge and Enoteca in River Heights, has a Crescentwood project coming down the pipe. Bagshaw plans to open Maque, an Asian- influenced small- plates bistro, at Stafford Street and Dorchester Avenue as soon as next month. Enoteca’s Instagram account posted a picture of a menu in progress for the new space, listed as “ Coming August 2015,” with a couple of bao — open- faced steamed buns — as appetizers. The Asian take is a departure for Bagshaw, who riffs off Spanish and Italian cuisine at this other two spots. ANTHONY AUGUSTINE / MUSIC Remixing Rihanna Even before he was dropping festival- ready remixes with maverick producer Diplo, Montreal’s Grandtheft was part of the celebrated Team Canada mashup crew. While he has moved on from mashups, his skills in the studio are still put to good use on this recent reworking, with Diplo, of Rihanna’s Bitch Better Have My Money. Grandtheft will make his triumphant return to the city at Bastid’s BBQ at the Union Sound Hall parking lot on July 25. Tickets are $ 15 in advance at the Urban Bakery or Music Trader. Visit bit. ly/ grandtheft_ remix to hear Diplo and Grandtheft’s drum- heavy workout. KEVIN PROKOSH / THEATRE Holy late night show, Batman The première of One Man Dark Knight is set for 11: 30 p. m. Friday, July 24, at the West End Cultural Centre.
