“May her memory be for a blessing.”

My friends do cool things

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

I have friends doing interesting things. I thought I’d share a few of them. First there’s Nat who is working on a TOEFL iBT site. If I needed to learn English, I’m sure this would be super useful. Then there’s Lisa who has her startup Coupled Together with her husband Marc. They started their relationship […]

The Heath Inspector

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Did you know that if you have a case of food poisoning in Toronto you’re supposed to report it? No? Well, neither did I. But N did and so when I got sick and told him I wasn’t planning to file anything, he called them on my behalf. It was super awkward when a health […]

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Today was my 10 year high school reunion. The best comment was made by a guy in  my class, Mark, who said (I paraphrase): All of the girls seemed to have gotten better looking. The guys all got bald and fat. Love it.

What to wear!

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

It’s a funny feeling getting dressed to go out but not to a wedding – it seems like those are the only things I go to lately. I find getting dressed for a house party way more stressful than getting ready for a black tie wedding. Time for a shopping trip perhaps?

A Techie’s Lament

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

In case you didn’t know, I’m a techie. I work in computers, and so am expected to have all sorts of gadgets. But since I like to spend my moolah on other things, like black knee high boots (of which I have at least 4 different variations) and running shoes/clothes, I don’t always have new […]

TIFF-tastic (an ode to Adam)

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Since moving home to Toronto I’ve been able to make it to TIFF every year for various things. One year my dad got some passes from work to the closing film. One year we ended up in the party at Ultra for the opening film. One year a friend had a film in the festival. […]

friends are cool, but amigos are cooler

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

I have a lot of friends. According to facebook, the number stands at 1158 (which means very little.. but that’s a story for another time). Many of my friends do super cool things. What kind of cool things? Well, how about quitting a good full-time job to move to latin-America and become fluent in Spanish? […]

home sweet home

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

i kinda went dark for 10 days there, eh? Not if you follow me on twitter, though.:) Chile is an incredible place. Played on snow covered volcanoes, ran down gigantic sand dunes, and tasted some of the best wine I’ve ever had. And that’s barely scratching the surface. Over the next few days I’ll be […]
