I gotta get organizized

I lost the charger for my camera some time ago, so the only camera I had to take this nighttime photo of the first wild owl I have ever seen in my life was my cell phone camera.

Sending emails, recieving emails, deleting emails..... I could go on

That's the sort of place this cafe is.  A lot of sexy people not doing much work and having affairs.

Old News

yeah, so, uh,  if the event was last week you don't need to add a big sticker telling us about it.  Just take down the poster already.

Double Posting

Stephenie Meyer doesn't watch vampire movies, so she might not know Dracula as an allegory about pre-marital lust, but her characters sure do.  Yow.

Absolutely not the case.

Too many things about this are unlikely at best.

And he ate lightning, And crapped thunder, And said: "Do this in memory of Me"

Blog is cancelled for today to allow for observance of Rocky Marathon Day.

Question 1: If these were people, which would you hate most?

My friend does market research on Blackberries, and they actually ask focus groups questions like this. They probably should have told whoever wrote this ad.

I guess this means Sullay Mohammed Kanu Jr. could become the president too.

Vegan Brownies, too.

If you have a friend who likes to cook you should buy them the rebar cookbook right now.  You will be repayed tenfold.  In vegetarian Enchiladas.

Your barista might sing bilingual jazz outside of your imagination, too.

Value Subtracted

Do you know what the blinking 12 problem means?  It means your coffee maker shouldn't have a clock.

Any Colour You Like

I had my fortune told for Russian New Year.  The left palm shows that I may have a major life change at some point, the rectangle on my Mound of Jupiter means I might write a best-seller, and the design on my right palm means my hands like Pink Floyd.

Blue Jobs my Shiny Metal A**

Dripping faucets should be easy to fix, right?  Just replace a washer?  I was too chicken to force the cold valve off, and when I got the hot valve off it didn't _have_ a washer. I couldn't even get it back on straight, as you can see.   

Anyway, it stopped dripping.  I think it felt sorry for me.

I sewed the hoodie, my niece Cynthia painted the unicorn

I took this picture before ironing this painting today just in case:  Ironing instructions for home-made hand-painted velvet hoodies are surprisingly scarce.

Mad Skills

You'd be forgiven for thinking we hired R. Harald Baayen for his world-class research or his genial nature, but really we were just short on harpsichord virtuosi:

The first course was Martinis

I've already talked about how generous Trev and Sarah are with food and hospitality, but I haven't mentioned how generous they are with culture.  Here's what they sent us off with tonight, and all we had to do in exchange was eat a home-cooked three-course meal.

Home Sweet Home pt. 2

No place I've lived in Ontario has this kind of view either.

Don't let the government catch you crying

I mean, I knew passport photos can't have smiles, but tears?

Home Sweet Home

Ontario doesn't look like this from a plane.

Three Course Meal

Justine and Mat didn't just let me stay at their place in Toronto before flying out, they invited some people over and cooked some fantastic Indian food, followed by magical regenerating Italian Christmas cake:Then for dessert, we spon wool into gold

This little white button really does provide 24-hour relief:

Our Nation's Capitol

Things in Ottawa are great!  Your office might by across the hall from your MP:
Your pens are extremely high tech! 
Your Baguio Store sells all types of food known to human kind!
Or you could just buy your desires directly:

Not to Mention Moving an Apartment

What better way to start the year than hung over on a Greyhound for 8 hours?
