My toes are still cold

My friend Meg & I played in Georgian Bay today.
It was a bit chilly, but worth it.

Canada. Wonderful, delicious, adorable Canada.

If only everything in life were as beautiful as this ...

Getting to Know Me

The idea for this little montage comes from a certain Swedish lady

  • picture of you in your room.
My old Kingston room. My last year of university I lived in a very sketchy house and my room was a structurally unsound addition that appeared to be randomly tacked onto the top of my house. The room slanted to the left and would move just a little too much if it was windy outside.

  • A picture of you very drunk.

Mexico. I ended up jumping in a car with a bunch of lovely Mexican girls and driving off to a lady bar. I knew I had to get home when I couldn't properly say my name.

  • The youngest picture you can find of yourself in digital form.

  • A picture of you in one of your favourite outfits.

I own and love quite a few dresses, in fact I may even have named a few ... however, when it comes down to it, it really doesn't matter what's on top so long as I've got my Texans on my feet.

  • A picture of you making a goofy face at the camera.

Wine & Sleaze. This photo got it's own page in my university's yearbook.

  • A picture you miiiiiight have edited to make yourself more attractive.

  • A picture of a night you regret.

  • A picture of you truly being yourself.

  • The most recent picture of you.

  • A picture of you being ridiculous.

  • A picture of a time in your life that’s over, but you wish it wasn’t.

I miss all going on all my solo weekend trips. No wonder Air Canada is losing money.

  • A picture of a time in your life that’s over, and you couldn’t be more thankful that it is.
I am not a trigger happy girl. This was a one time only Portland affair. 

  • A picture of you when you were anything but happy.

  • A picture of you that you had no idea was being taken.

  • A picture that describes how you’d like to spend every day.

Guacamole + Swedish boys + NYC + special treats + fire breathing-pole-dancing-bartenders + dancing

  • A picture of a time when everything was changing.

Last night in Montreal before I moved away to travel across the USA.
I rhyme good. =)

  • A picture that makes your heart hurt.

Montreal, I'm really sorry. It's all my fault. Really, it's me, not you.

  • A picture that makes your heart smile.
New Orleans - always amazing times - always the most amazing people.

Elisa Nalin - I envy you.

When One is Unemployed ..

... one tends to watch too much Tv .... which really isn't quite so bad now that the internet, bless its soul, lets you watch whatever you want with no commercials. My Top 5 recommendations?


Freaks & Geeks. I know cute girls run around wearing t-shirts that read "Talk geeky to me" and blah, blah, blah - and they are completely missing the point. If you were a dork back in high school it was painful. This show captures that - and Seth Rogen when he, and I adore the man, couldn't act. But that's ok because of his little gems like "she's packing the gun and the holster" line.
True Blood.
Fuck Edward Cohen. Vampires, especially those of the evil Swedish persuasion, are sexy.

3. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Just watch it and you will understand.

2. My guilty of guilty pleasures - a show revolving around two British gardners who just happen to always be fixing up gardens where people just happened to be murdered. Chances are your granny and I enjoy this show for all the same reasons. 

1. Mad Men
There are 2 reasons to watch this show.

a. Joan Holloway (please excuse the title of this video, it's not mine)
b. Don Draper

I can see clearly now ...

I got me some fancy new specs

Where have you been lately?

The first ocean my toes almost touched - the Atlantic in Charleston, South Carolina

Much too late and much too much Southern Comfort with some Swedish gentlemen on South Beach

Arizona ... how I surprisingly ended up ♥'ing thee>
