My friend has been taunting me with tales of massive snowfall every night and skiing Blackcomb glacier on Christmas. It’s complete with photos. Look at that snow, it’s killing me!

February is coming soon.

Pitch correctly and you’ll have more luck

I just got a canned email pitch from a salesman who deals in packaging. Every once in awhile a TFI member decides to email everyone. He’s promising to take I want – I got to the next level. I don’t think this guy realized that I want – I got is a website. I emailed him to let him know that I can’t see how his packaging company is going to help considering it’s not a physical product.

Here is a piece of advice for you business folk. If you bother to do a little research before sending out spam emails then you could focus your time on the right potential clients.

While I’m posting about things that annoy me.

1. I won’t tell you the trends for 2008/2009. Join TFI and find out yourself.

2. I don’t work for any of the companies that are listed on this site. Don’t ask me to track down some obscure product, I cannot.

Talking to crazies

I had an interesting conversation with an older crazy lady about slips yesterday. I was in a store in Commerce Court this afternoon and she was looking for somewhere that sells slips in the area. Having tried looking for slips on lunch before I told her to goto The Bay. She then went off about how women these days don’t wear underwear and that we walk around and you can see everything through the clothes. That’s when my crazy bells went off. You have to remember, we are in the most conservative area of Toronto, the financial district and this lady is going off about

I tried to explain that most people didn’t think it was necessary for the extra piece of clothing and we are hardly walking around with clothes that you can see through. Slips are necessary for some clothing, but not all. I told her that I even own a slip but I don’t wear it all the time. The dress pictured below is one I use a slip for, otherwise in pictures it would be very revealing.
Me.  Slip Dress

Then she started going off about thongs. How they were always showing through clothing all over the place and the typically response, they are uncomfortable. I happened to be wearing a thong today and I was beginning to get annoyed. So I replied, “I’m wearing one now and I think they are comfortable”. I then did a little turn so she could see my ass and said “You don’t see it showing all over the place here do you”. I walked away after that cause I had enough. Photo proof is after the jump…

Are you Hot?

I saw this quiz on facebook today and decided to try it out. Are you Hot?

You Are Super Spicy

You’re a little bit crazy, a little bit naughty, and a whole lot of sexy.
You go beyond hot – you set people’s senses on fire!

He he, super spicy huh, I wonder if my friends agree?

The camera loves me

I’m going to be on tv again. This has been the year of the television appearances for yours truly. People are even telling me that I should change careers, lol. I hate tv though, and after being on it I still hate it. Doesn’t matter what you do, you always end up looking like an idiot. I was glad they left the snorting laugh after the technosexual description in the Citytv International CK in2u clip, that was hilarious. I’m not nervous or anything in front of the camera but it’s surreal. That being said, I probably wouldn’t turn down another interview, what the hell is the matter with me? Opening Soon and Citytv International were two strange, out of the blue, random things that happen on the fly short. The filming of both clips took place over a 24hr period.

I will be on Opening Soon by Design on HGTV. It all stems from this article I wrote for blogTO on Aiyoku Cardio Lounge. In that post I write

It’s Thursday night and I’m on my way to Liberty Village for the opening of a new boutique gym. These types of specialized gyms are popping up all over the city looking to bring in people who don’t particularly like the environment Goodlife or YMCA offers. As I walk into the basement of the Carpet Factory building, I’m asked to sign a wavier before entering. It seems there is a television crew filming the opening party. I’m a little surprised to find this out and sign it, believing that I’ll keep myself out of sight during my stay.

My strategy didn’t work and I got surprised while I was salivating over the new Precor treadmills and ellipticals. It was a really great party and everyone was super nice. I can’t wait to see the show because I heard stories about putting the place together. I was chatting with one of the contractors and we bonded over world war 2. It was actually quite touching.

Anyways, here is the airing schedule.

Monday, March 26, 9:30 PM EST

Tuesday, March 27, 12:30 AM EST

Tuesday, March 27, 3:30 AM EST

Monday, April 2, 3:00 AM EST

If anyone has the ability to record this show and send it to me please do, It would be grand. (is it illegal to ask, eep :O)

Yes, that picture is of me. This post is about me, so I needed a picture of me. I decided to use the funniest picture of me I had. This is also one of my favourites of me. It was taken by my friend Paul Baik. Where the hell are the rest of the photos Paul?

Advanced Laugher classes now in Toronto

I want – I got reader Albert emailed about his new Laughter Therapy workshop on Toronto.
Laughercize class in Toronto

Don’t Agonize, Laughercize

Can we practice joy?
Yes, apparently.
That’s the idea behind a new form of Advanced Laugher workshops called Laughercize.
Laughercize is a new combination of Laugher-Yoga, Improv Theater and Martial Arts where laughter is practiced as an art. Laughercize relies on new science which claims laughter has remarkable and often ignored health benefits.

Laughing Benefits http://stress.about.com/od/stresshealth/a/laughter.htm

Albert Nerenberg, the director who leads the 1 month workshop says he developed the method while working on a TV documentary about laughing while studying laughter yoga and that it’s a blast.

5 Things You Don’t Know About Me

Adrian at Fashion.Verbatim has tagged me with the 5 Things You Don’t Know About Me meme.

Ahh were to start.

1. I competed at the Junior National Track and Field Championships, 1994 in Sherbrooke, Quebec. I was an athletic freak in my younger days. I usually played at least 4 sports a year during high school. Now, I just play squash.

2. I wanted to work in the Coroner office when I was in grade 12. I learned you needed a medical degree to be a Coroner. After second year I learned that I wasn’t cut out for medical school. Organic chemistry killed that dream. I didn’t have the dedication to studying that was required, I liked having a social life.

3. I am one of the founders of YAMA – The York University Anime and Manga club. I was an anime freak in university. I’ve calmed down a lot since then but still love my Ghost in the Shell.

4. I work purple platform loafers to my graduation ceremony from York University. It was the late nineties and these things we still in.
York University Graduation.
When it was my turn to get up and grab the paper I did a quick two step dance slide with arm action on the stage before I started shaking hands with the school president and other big wigs. The crowd loved it, I still regret not buying that ceremony video. Any York graduates from 1998 B.Sc. that have the video, please rip it for me. 😀

5. I almost named my cats Carl and Sagan in honour of Carl Sagan, my favourite scientist. It was overkill though so I just named one Sagan.

I don’t know who to tag right now so it ends here for now.

Damn you Google Reader

I was using Google Reader for a lot of my blog reading. It’s broken right now and has been for awhile. It’s quite irritating as they don’t tell you WTF is going on. Not even an acknowledgment of the problem and a “please be patient”. Looks like I’m gonna have to go to something more reliable.

So readers what is your favourite feed reader? I have a bloglines account but I’m not big on the interface to be honest.

For those who are asking WTF is an feed reader?
