Okay, so I’m not a huge animal advocate – I mean I don’t think you should go around kicking puppies or anything, but if a labradoodle kicks you first I think its fair game to kick him back. Apparently people who are greater animal lovers than I am were planning on protesting the Canada Goose clothing company this weekend, but unfortunately the weather didn’t agree with them. Protesting a company that makes the warmest winter jackets around is difficult in -30 degree weather, as noted on Twitter.
+ 20 Internets to you@BuddhaWeltz. Thanks for the giggle.
In case you were wondering, they pair excellently with red wine and Scandal on Netflix.
No shame in a quiet Friday night in.
Blogsters! Do you remember all those courses I used to take? The ones that left my apartment in shambles and shattered my self esteem? Well, I finished them in the winter of 2012, but finally had my graduation yesterday.
I went to Waterloo where I was treated to a fancy lunch, a boring speech and finally a fancy diploma!
I even got some beautiful roses to celebrate the occasion. Later on yesterday evening Sam took me to Buon Gusto to celebrate my achievements.
So happy to be done these courses and have a new diploma to hang in my office. I should probably get around to getting my University degree framed…
There are 34 million of us here in Canada. Approximately 33 999 999 of us are up right now watching the Canada/Sweden gold medal game. I’m up early with a little something cheeky in my coffee. Drinking out of my red mug – you know, for good luck. Anyone who knows me knows I don’t perform well this early in the morning, so I probably shouldn’t be allowed to blog. Forming sentences before 10 am is hard. Thus, I leave you with this, the goal that won it all for us 4 years ago. Go Canada, go!
I called in ugly to work today.
I woke up this morning and my right eye was swollen almost shut. I think it’s a sty but if it doesn’t look any better tomorrow morning I may have to hit a walk in clinic. In the mean time I am working from home. There are times in my life when I think that I have it all together. My nails are painted, there are three days worth of lunches prepped and ready to go in my fridge, apartment is spotless and I managed to go for a run or two. I can maintain this for 3, 4 days max. Then it all falls apart.
Real talk – right now there are dirty dishes piled up next to the sink, all of my laundry is dirty, my bed hasn’t been made in
days maybe weeks? I also have about a million errands to do. I have to go to Rogers to exchange my PVR and modem (a strange result of me trying to cancel my home phone), I have to exchange a top at Target (humbling is when the “shapewear” you bought is too small), and I have to exchange a Christmas present at the mall.
This cycle seems to be repeating in my life lately. Everything is fantastic, life is going along tickety-boo, then the next thing I know I’m living like a college student who is failing out of freshman geology.
Sigh…please tell me this is normal?
Okay, so this may have been all over Facebook but I am not so I have no way of knowing. It’ entirely possible that you all have seen this video a million times before, but my co-worker sent it to me and it made me giggle, so I thought I would share. Enjoy!
There are actual content driven posts coming soon. I promise!
