More Mug News: my 2nd favourite mug — chipped!

i think i made my #2 mug jealous (it used to be #1) by only using the newish Room of One’s Own mug. and then it cut itself. my Globe Theatre Romeo & Juliet mug has a big old chip on the rim, mysteriously acquired. that is ass. look at how great it was. is.

to make myself feel better i am putting on my new socks, which are pink and argyle and most importantly MATCHERS with Clairey. at this very moment across that ocean, Clairey could have on her socks. and that is as close as we can get to a Practical Magic visit sometimes.

in other news, So You Think You Can Dance is still the best ever. Except they need a better screening process for guest judges. Like ask them to judge a previous performance and if they ramble incoherently for way too long using words like “organic” and “street” and “essence” and “i took no notes,” then maybe reject them. (I’m talking about you, Toni Basil.) I will try to find a video of Will’s solo from last night cuz it was may-jah. That guy can do no wrong.

listening to: Miley Cyrus, Breakout. my favourite song so far is “fly on the wall.” and no, not cause ECW published a book with that title earlier this year. (zo my god, that song just came on.) it has a very, vair catchy chorus and, um, rocky guitar riff? also, speaking of uber popular pop songs, i really like that “i kissed a girl” song by katy perry. it is constantly in my head. maybe that’s the song of the summer?

ALSO i thought of a good name for a boy baby if i ever get (stuck with) one. ready?…. Theo. not bad, eh? reminds you of Theo Huxtable. And then maybe that means my future family would be as awesomesauce as the Huxtables? tho I would likely be the one eating hoagies. remember the episode when Theo got his ear pierced and tried to hide it from Cliff? oh man that was funny.

some of the ecw gang went to see The Dark Knight on monday and it was sooooo good. Morgan Freeman’s best performance since Wanted, hands down. but in all seriousity, see The Batman in imax. you won’t be sorry. but you will get butterflies when the camera dives off buildings.

now you guys know how I am a Dinosaur Comics enthusiast. you can read a great conversation between friends and webcomic geniuses Joey Comeau and Ryan North right here.

supper time.


hi blogreaders. it’s blogwriter. i am sleeeepy and tiiiired and also more of that too. let me tell you that:

1. i went to the St Lawrence Market twice today and it always makes me 546 points better about life so i’m up 1092.
2. i could post spoilers for next week’s episode of Battlestar Galactica here on this internet but i am not going to because i hate spoilers. but i will tell you this: start watching this show (from the beginning) if you don’t already watch it. and if you don’t like it, then there is something wrong with you.
3. the cashier at the LCBO likes my purple sunglasses and totally carded me. today was one of those days where people were staring at me more than a regular amount (by that i mean, everyone stares at everyone all day long but today i got a bit more than my share) and not in a hey-baby-you-so-fine way but in a something-is-off-putting-about-you-but-i-can’t-quite-place-what. it is my HAIR i didn’t brush it after my shower, geeeez.
4. tomorrow is sarah’s baby shower and holy crud
5. i am going to have sausages for dinner and then i will watch either notes on a scandal or everything is illuminated and the TPL lent them dvds to me
6. that youtube video of the guy dancing (below this post) isn’t really awesomesauce. it’s just okaysauce.
8. i have a “so say we all” button!

get thee to a nunnery

i don’t often blog about my love life here at the Tribune and I’ll tell ya why: i do not have one. And I’ll tell ya why I don’t: cause for a smart girl, i can be pretty slow on the uptake. this past weekend at MoCCA, there was a seriously good candidate (this assessment was made in the minute of initial conversation chitchat). erin and i discussed his excellent qualities upon his departure and awaited his return (he was going to look around the show then come back & buy Heavy Metal Fun Time Activity Book. see? gold!). Then he returned. Once again he demonstrated that he possessed many qualities I admire.

Long time readers may recall this list:


1) humour
2) smarts
3) attractiveness (hard to nail down physical specifics here)
4) Spike
5) a personal style (whatever that may be)
6) confidence (that should be #1)
7) similar thoughts on the world & how it should be run

MoCCA Guy got gold stars on 6 of 7. The only other book he bought was about the war in Iraq and wished there was more serious, political stuff instead of so much tortured navel-gazing. This was love. Then Erin & I signed his copy of Heavy Metal (see? is this flirting? i think it might have been.) and he wished us well. then he was gone.

i had about 900 opportunities to say something (anything!) that would continue contact. and i totally dropped the ball. nay, lost the ball. so now i can only hope that he decides to google me and then emails me. i am checking my junk mail box more carefully these days. erin and i named him joel/josh and today i got an email from Joel Fox! (which is a very apropos name for him) but alas alack it was truly junk mail and not 100% tru luv mail.

the lesson: i am dim. also if you google “joel fox” you will be led here: finding out about a robot talent show is worth the cost of a broken heart.
