I’m persistent. I tried for over a week to score tickets to Jim Cuddy’s Intimate & Interactive CD Release Party, to no avail. I figured I hadn’t shined my horseshoe quite well enough, and consoled myself with the fact my pre-ordered copy of his new album would arrive in my excited little hands by the release date and moved on.

Or, I moved on until a friend informed me that Jim would be filming for CTV down the road from me in Westboro. (more…)

So much to say, such a short attention span:

  • Heading out to Ukiuk tomorrow night with Auntie H and the kids, maybe DH also. I saw it before the Jim Cuddy show and it was pretty fantastic. I want to show the kids so that I can explain that it was actually someone’s *job* to work on something that awesome and inspiring.
  • Disassembling shelving and reassembling it elsewhere, and sorting/sifting through the resulting ephemera seems to be for me the female equivalent of male “ripping and tearing” projects that inevitably commence with the onset of Spring. I relocated another bookshelf and spent a happy afternoon filling it up again.
  • I scored a 1.5L Pyrex bowl to complete my set as far as bowl sizes go, but it’s the wrong era. It will do, though, until I get the red bowl — at which point I will regift it to someone who enjoys retro kitchenware as much as I do. I’d really like to get ahold of some pieces of the ‘Primary Colors’ refrigerator dishes.          (more…)

I snagged this from someone on Facebook. I have rather eclectic musical tastes, and was curious what would pop up. It made me giggle — pretty hard by times — so I thought I’d repost it here. To be honest, I advanced everytime I hit a Christmas tune — and that happened fairly often.

I’m rather perplexed Blue Rodeo only turned up only once!

Instructions:

2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For the first question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button TWICE
6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool…just type it in!

This past weekend was alternately busy/slow/productive/fun. I went out with my high school BFF Friday night to catch Jim Cuddy on the Canal for Winterlude — a conveniently-timed concert, the day after my birthday, by my all-time favorite Rock God EVAR! We then headed to a pub on Elgin and spent the better part of 5 hours chatting, laughing, reminiscing, and talking about future plans before heading home. I got in around 2:30am, a little drunk, kind of tired, but strangely refreshed and very happy. She and I don’t do things like this often enough, IMO.

The next day I hung out with my youngest while my oldest was shuttled around to his various martial arts classes. #2 and I headed out grocery shopping after supper — which is always a lot of fun with him. As soon as we entered the store, he was asking if he could go see the lobsters and was off like a shot — standing there watching them while I completed most of the shopping. He insisted on introducing me to them before we left, as he had named them while I was doing my errands.
