batteries needed

.. for my phone and Pebble, because they’ve had one hell of a workout today.

Earlier this morning, everyone’s favourite Canadian Nathan Fillion tweeted that he was taking applications for Valentines. I happened to be looking at TweetDeck at the perfect moment, so I responded to him and then moved on with my day, because that is what happens in meatspace: you do something, and then you do another thing, and then another thing, and so on and so forth until you’re dead/for eternity (depending on your belief tree).

Then this happened:

i'm in!

i’m in!

My notifications/Pebble have been going off NONSTOP since that tweet. In fact, since I took the screenshot, it’s gone off a half dozen more times. This is all very weird and hilarious, and now I have two Valentines for today so I am pretty pleased (if in desperate need of a Pebble charging cable).

Tonight Ed and I are going to see the LEGO MOVIE in DBOX and I am EXCITED. I will buy jellybeans and popcorn and my seat will move and everything will be great. Hooray for Friday!

happy friday the 14th from all of us sitting at my desk!

.. that moment when you’re flipping through a magazine while waiting to check out at the grocery store and you accidentally yourself in an article ..



and there's the rest of me!

and there’s the rest of me!

I did an interview last November, about my blog and the Vancouver riots. I knew it was for the Reader’s Digest, but I didn’t know when or if the article would ever be published – in fact, I had forgotten all about it until tonight when I was looking at the checkout magazines in Safeway. I grabbed the latest RD and said to Ed “wouldn’t it be funny if this was the issue I’m in?”, thereby setting the stage for exact that – and lo, there I am. Accountability! I was once all about it!

As weird as the stumbling-upon-myself Safeway incident was, it wasn’t the first time that has happened. When we were still in Calgary, the exact same thing happened with an issue of PC Gamer. Flipped through the magazine, looked down, and whoa there I am. Neat!

I may have a small collection of magazines my name has appeared in:
