Oooo! Controversy on a Tuesday!
Today Defective Yeti has a photo up that is causing some controversy. Is it funny or very sad?

Exhibit A: On my 10th wedding anniversary, Fresh and I went for our first overnight without Ice Prince (then 6 months old). I was fine until the next morning when I saw a shot of a baby crying in a movie still. It broke my heart that they made baby unhappy to film a scene.

Exhibit B: When Ice Prince was 3 and a half, we took him to Sears for a portrait. It was the worst experience. He cried, I cried. He yelled, I yelled. I have post-traumatic stree disorder just thinking about it.

Exhibit C: I neither laughed nor cried when I saw the Yeti photo. I suspect it was not staged, but just snapped. Mainly I thought, “Oh those poor parents!” If it was staged, yes, I’d be pissed.

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack!
I'm feeling much better, thanks.

I've been sick all week. And no, I didn't have any tequila at Maria's party. I did manage to get my backpack I left at her house, which is good, considering I usually leave clothing.

Speaking of which, last night on The Office (which I love), Michael (the boss) is riding home drunk in the back of Pam's car when he suddenly says mournfully "These aren't my shoes." Those of you who attended my 30th birthday party will find that amusing.

Par-tay! Yes, this means YOU!

Disclaimer: Party guests may not be exactly as pictured.

Oh yeah, I'm not having a birthday party this year because it's so hard to get people out on New Year's, so instead Fresh and I are having a Holiday Open House on Saturday December 16th. We haven't picked a time yet, is 4-8 better or is 8 to whenever better?

Anyhow, book it and be there. I'll provide food, you provide booze. Remember to bring an instrument, as the evening will probably eventually degenerate into some sort of singing and playing thing, as usual.

More later.
Nobody’s better than Rannie….NOOOOOO-BODY!

Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast
I am having an amazing fabulous fantastic day and I just thought I would share that with you.

Only one thing at the back of my mind...should I get my hair cut? Coloured? Leave it alone?

Sushi Train

Radio Guy and I went to Sushi Train on Yonge, where we enjoyed lunch. It was great fun with lots of things to play with. The conveyor takes the plates around and you choose. We sat at the bar and Chris managed to impress a Francophone woman seated next to him with his fluency.

Watch the video and hum "It's a Small World After All" while it plays. Shortly after the video finished, a bottle with a glove on it went by.

Kidding. I'm kidding.

Skirting the Issue

Today at lunch, Chris the Radio Guy will be receiving his Skirt Poem.

I am quite pleased with how it turned out and may turn Denim Skirt Poems® into a new sideline career.Who'd like to buy a Denim Skirt Poem®? Jean Poems® also available.

(Sorry, Mini Skirt Poems® available in haiku only.)

The Ice Queen Endorsement

Sorry it's a little late, but my household was supporting Spider-man for City Council.

Because Spidey acknowledges that "with great power comes great responsibility".
He is both "friendly" and "neighbourhood".
He's "brilliant but lazy".
Green Goblin already warned him that "No matter what you do for them, eventually, they will hate you." Sounds like politics to me!
