The Aftermath

Well, we weathered the storm.  Toronto did not get anywhere near the damage that parts of the States did, but there was a casualty...right down the street from where I live.  A woman got hit by a Staples sign and died. So awful. 

Other than that horrible news, Toronto suffered some minor damage: huge trees blew over, some flooding of streets, a few crushed cars and what seemed like a whole lot of fires breaking out as a result of Hurricane Sandy.  In my neighborhood tons of people are without power (thankfully not us) and they may not get it back until Thursday.

Hurricane Sandy 2012

Hey there friends and neighbors! Mother Nature has her period today didn't you know?  

What with all the crazy weather going on in the world these past few days, how are are we all supposed to function?  Barometric pressures rising and falling, rain rain and maybe a little snow (not for Toronto yet! Snow Watch 2012 is not officially on!), and now the crazy ass wind that is coming our way.  It's enough to make you want to put on your best hurricane gear and hide under the bed.

I LIKE YOUR SHOES: Part 2

Ok so where were we? Ah yes. I decided to go back to my roots and dress how I did when I was 15. You know, like a boy. Why not right? You only live once. Or in this case, twice.

I LIKE YOUR SHOES: Part 1

This past weekend I took my sister to London, Ontario to party at one of our favorite bars for her birthday.  The bar is called Downtown Kathy Brown's and it's such a strange mix of people...which makes for a crazy time when we go.

Since it was her big day, I wanted her to have a lot of fun.  You only turn 20-17 once and I wanted to make it a good one! So I got us a hotel room and peaced out of Toronto for the night.  So I dressed in my favorite Kristen Stewart outfit (for the record, I was here first and have dressed this way forever) and we set sail for London town.

Party Weekend!

I am taking my sister to London this weekend to party for her birthday, but in the meantime, I leave you  with these two amazing videos.

If you really enjoy time lapse photography and watching a city wake up and go to sleep, then you will enjoy this one from Tom Ryaboi.  So good.

And for the video game nerds out there, I leave you with this awesomeness:



Have a great weekend everyone!

Rainy Day Snooze

It's a rainy day here today.  Which I don't mind, as it happens to match my mood.  And I wear my moods like an accessory. An accessory to murder.  Just kidding.  I don't even know what I am saying anymore.

And I Say Thanks

Two weekends ago was Thanksgiving here in old Canada.  Which means, food!  Just kidding.  I know we all remember why the Thanksgiving tradition came about and all those ummm....Indians and land and turkey?  *crickets*

Dave and I pulled our asses out of bed to attend my family's tradition of gorging on meat and cheesecake.  Come on, you all know that's what Thanksgiving is to you these days, don't try to lie!  It was a very beautiful and overcast Fall day out there, which I did give thanks for because...I like days like that.

Babies!

Ok, just one baby. And contrary to the picture below, it's not MY baby.

Pumpkins and Spice and Everything Nice

I love the Fall.  Almost as much as I love Winter. There are just so many nice things about it, like:
