And I Don’t Blame You
I mean, I’m barely ever here!
So, I opened the door to the editing room of this blog and had to blow dust off of the desk before I sat down to write. Keeping Toronto Thumbs running is a bittersweet task. On one hand, I get to write about all kinds of cool stuff; but at the same time, it takes me away from writing articles here (and for other places, as well). 2013 was a fairly eventful year, full of family goodness, friends and all around good times. It was also the busiest year yet for Toronto Thumbs, which resulted in a feeling of fulfillment at the end of 2013.

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?

Ink This Wisdom
Little J has a very creative brain and a unique perspective that I can relate to. We were walking around today, enjoying the weather when we ran into a friend who has a dog. Little J said hi to both friend and canine, and as we continued she told me this…
Little J: Daddy, I think having more than one pet is too many pets.
Little J: Yeah. It’s too much work. But, if you wanted to have more than one pet, you can take a magic pill that turns you into an octopus. Then you would have enough arms to take care of them.
That’s my kiddo.

You Know It Has Been A Long Day When…
You are sitting on the bus on your way home from work (reading e-mails on your BlackBerry), when you suddenly reach for your holster to discover that your BlackBerry is not there! So, what do you do? You start typing a BlackBerry Messenger note to your boss letting him know that you think you might have lost your…oh wait…how am I typing this again?

Armed and Dangerous
Sometimes I wonder if I’m going to be spending the afterlife in a very warm place.
Observe: a friend tweeted this…
I replied with this…
Anyone have an extra portable air conditioner they don’t need?
