Today’s entry, for my current writing feature, is someone who I have known for quite a long time. I consider him a good friend and would trust him with a great deal. A lot of praise for someone that I have never physically met.

The first victim, I mean subject of my writing feature is someone who was as green as Kermit the Frog; but this person had the heart to become one of our key members.

A few years ago I took over Toronto Thumbs from Shaun Hatton (also known as the god of hair). When it was handed to me, I sent out a request to a select few people within my social circles for help with managing content (aka: writing). The offers to help were few, but very much appreciated.

Last weekend was the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the high school that I went to (well, the one that I went to for most of my high school career, as my family moved at the end of the summer before I was in grade ten). Reunions seem to evoke feelings of excitement in some, dread in others, and indifference in others still. Our reunion actually consisted of an entire weekend of events. The only events that I were interested in, really, were the talent show and a pub gathering, both taking place on the Friday night (the events overlapped, oddly enough). It was definitely a strange night; in some ways similar to the old days – in others, very different.

A year has gone by since our last bout of madness; we still have not learned our lesson – or have we? This year the lineup looks suspiciously good, which is an exciting thing.

A few of my friends and I will (occasionally) take a perfectly innocent phrase in one of our conversations and turn it on it’s ear with some good ol’ innuendo (in YOU end oh). The following convo was with a friend of mine, to whom I loaned the season 1 DVD set of Burn Notice…
Booya! Click to make bigger (that’s what she said).
Of course, later on I thought about it – and it could have easily been referring to some kind of medical show. Ah well. Can’t win ‘em all, right?
