Worth the Itchiness

Another Movember has come and gone, and our Movember team has raised far more than our goal! I wanted to extend huge thanks to all of our supporters – we couldn’t have done this without you. The funds raised for Movember go towards a number of great causes, including prostate and testicular cancer research and awareness, and also to men’s mental health initiatives.

Thanks, too, to the Movember foundation for running a tight ship (and for the neat harmonica)! See you next year!

It’s not too late to donate. For you last-minute folks: here you go.

Nature’s Berries

Kiddo and I play the Disney Edition of Trivial Pursuit from time to time, which involves us asking each other questions from different decks (I ask her the questions from “younger kids” deck, and she asks me questions from the “older kids” deck). Of course, game-play involves a fair amount of witty repartee (or trash talk, if you like). The other day we had an exchange that made us laugh so hard it felt worthy of a retelling.

Dream Big

If your kids are asking to see a movie and you have grown tired of recycled plots and cookie-cutter animation, you might want to take your kids to the Ontario Science Centre to check out Dream Big: Engineering Our World. Directed by Greg MacGillivray and narrated by Jeff Bridges, this IMAX film addresses the important contributions of engineers, and is the first large-format movie to promote the educational STEM movement (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

Book Review: The Book of Letters I Didn’t Know Where to Send

Dear Steve Patterson,

I bought your book entitled The Book of Letters I didn’t Know Where to Send with the expectation that I would laugh heartily. Well, sir, I have to tell you that I did not laugh once! Nope. In fact, I laughed more times than I can count (which is quite a number, I assure you). Continue reading

Book Review: Everyone’s An Artist

eaa

First of all, for the sake of full disclosure, one of the authors is a friend of mine. Of course, Ron Tite is the kind of guy that appreciates honest feedback, so that relationship may not necessarily the best way to a glowing review. In this case, though, it works out well for everyone since “Everyone’s an Artist” is an entertaining read that will sing to the choir for some, and offer some interesting perspective to others.

Misery Hates Company

It’s interesting how you can go through life for so long thinking about not only acting, but being a particular way because you think that it’s helpful to others – but really, you’re just being an ignorant knob and you should have given your head a shake a long time ago. Continue reading

A Beautiful Thing

Are You Ready

I sit here writing and watching/listening to The Tragically Hip’s final concert, and I can’t help but feel the tears building up. I’m not usually one to write outpourings of sentiment over things like this – that’s just the way that I am. However, in this instance I thought I would contribute to the online collective of Gordery by talking about some of my favourite Hip moments. Continue reading
