arctic bayou

The METRO PHOTO CHALLENGE local winners were announced today.
Once again my pal Joel is in there like slim wear with the winning picture for the "Favourite spot" category with his photograph
arctic bayou:

Joel won the top spot internationally in 2008 with his photograph "Midnight Tram to Humber":

Read about it here

Joel and I began working together 2 years ago. Here we are, 2 years younger:

If he wins, he gets to go on a trip for 2 to anywhere the Metro publishes. 2 years ago he went to Paris.
Hmmmmm. Paris would be nice. I could dream, but unfortunately there is already a hottie in his life who he'd be taking OVER ME. sigh.

Good luck PeePoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Hollywood break ups.
The word on the street is that Scarlett and Ryan called it quits.

I personally think that Scar is one of the hottest things I have ever seen. ever.
So she's not going to win an Oscar anytime soon but she is goooorgeous.

Reynolds, I could take him or leave him.
I suppose I just can't get the that awful teevee show "2 guys a girl and a pizza place" out of my mind.
Come on, that show/shirt was Heinous!
I can't believe it lasted for 81 episodes!

Oh plus there's THIS mental image....


Anywho, while everyone's gossiping about the failure of Scar-Ry's 2 year love affair PEOPLE ARE FAILING TO SEE THE REAL TRAGEDY-

Now THESE TWO on the other hand- have been dating since they were in diapers.

Gays everywhere rejoice (especially my old boss, DON)!
Zac is single!

I could strangle him.

TTC Gear Grind....... again

I waited for 30 minutes this morning
DURING rush hour -at 8:30am- On a Very Busy Street for a BUS that never came.

Because of this I got the following:

A) Frostbite
B) a taxi

Thanks TTC! You rule!

Hmmmm... What could possibly warm me up now that I feel like I have perma-chill in my bones?

I know!

Cat on the Ceiling!

Oh! What A Feeling!
When the CAT is on the ceiling!

Oh! What A Feeling!
When the CAT is on the ceiling!

4 years

Four years TODAY I was shooting back some Jagermeister with a guy I had my eye on since 2 months prior.
Thanks for coming over to 'play guitar', baby.
4 years, I can hardly believe it... in some ways it has flown by and in other ways it feels like a lifetime already.

Tonight we celebrate at the Swan... Oysters, wine and some fine dining- can't wait.

PS That pic of us on the lower right kills me. That was about one month in.....

I work with a "cake lady"

I mean COME ON!
Check out this Shiz-net Gingerbread Haus!

(Jennifer, you are nuts... but like sweet nuts)


Oh hi there.
Been a while I suppose.

It's not that stuff hasn't been happening.... It's just that time is kinda flying by lately. I feel like I woke up one morning and BOOM- it's December.
Wasn't I just on a patio, like..... a few weeks ago?

To keep warm C and I have been keeping busy by wearing fun sweaters- (see pic #2) and ummmm.... dancing?
Wait a second, here....

How's it going bra? Remind me to choose other materials when shirt shopping.

Thanks Shauna and Johnny- at least someone is paying attention.

I saw my colleague / pal Jenna at work sporting that bad-boy a few weeks ago and HAD TO BORROW IT.
It's so.... me. We'll call it "Tacky-chic".
Kathryn and Bron had a wee karaoke shin-dig at their place last, last weekend.
We were tired but somehow ended up staying until 2am... which to us old folk is LATE.

My sweet potato sung into a sweet potato.

Holidays are creeping in quickly. I got some last minute online shopping done today for my sis and Robbie. Not much else to pick up, which is sort of refreshing. I am usually a last-minute-shopper-to-the-max.

New Years eve is also approaching. This year we have decided to forego out regular KW trip and stay in the city! Dinner with our good pals Fio and Ro and then back to theirs for some cocktails.
Sounds perfect to me, actually.

Gear Grind # 223

....Waiting at the bus stop for 20 minutes whilest getting rained on with nothing but a thin scarf to cover my freshly-blown-out blond locks.

I actually got up and made my self look half decent this morning, only to arrive on King Street looking like a drowned rat!

My hair is flatter than ME circa 1992!
