Murray’s Observation

You know the corollary to Godwin’s Law, the one that says you’ve automatically lost your argument when you compare someone to Hitler?

Can we make another rule that the use of the term ‘fat cats’ when referring to businessmen or politicians automatically paints you as an out-of-touch arrogant hippie freak? Perhaps we could call it ‘Murray’s Observation.’

Mid-December slight catch-up

Goodness, I’ve been a bit lax! Not a whole lot to share though, not really. Well, maybe, lessee…

Sunshiney nails and a throat tube

I don’t often think to wear such a light colour, and I can see why now — this colour’s kinda sick on me! Also flooded my cuticles a bit, but I think I’m getting a bit better. Sally Hansen Lemon Lime as a base, with a Konad stamp in Poppy, which didn’t really work — not a good balance.

Apple karma - I has it

On Thursday morning I took the x-rays of my knee to St Mike’s, as I had an appointment to see the orthopaedic surgeon to have him go over it and tell me what the hell’s going on with it. I spent a couple of hours in the waiting room, which was WAY longer than I had anticipated – I mean, I had an appointment, it’s not like I was a walk-in. When I finally saw him, he told me the problem was damaged cartilage and I’d need physiotherapy again. Well, at least it’s not surgery.

That’s it

Brenda and Eric are married! It was a very nice wedding and the reception was too — I only knew a few people, but everyone was lovely and the reception was held at a high-end billiards place near King and Dufferin, great atmosphere. No pictures (can’t find my files!) but I did make a nice card for them.

Tarot acquisitions: a few more

It's been a busy summer, and I've picked up a bunch more Tarots to tell you about...

Autumn and Spring

I totally forgot to take a picture of my nails before they started chipping! Here they are from a couple of days ago. Nice and autumn-y. I don’t remember what these colours were, sorry – maybe Club Monaco Beam as the base? I suck.

Anyway, I took that off today and replaced it with Essie Pretty Edgy with white Konad stamping. Very liquid, got it all over my cuticles! But I really like the swirly thumb…

Purple tips

I kinda love this purple, I mean it clashes with almost everything I own but the colour is still awesome.

The Joy of Konad

Hey there! Okay, to expand a bit on that nail art kit I mentioned before, at the CNE this year I came across a booth where they were doing interesting things with nail polish and etched plates. At first I thought nothing of it, but it kept floating around in my head until I eventually had to have it. And I love it!

Been busy. Here, catch up.

Oops, sorry folks, got caught up doing stuff! What, you ask? Well sit down, this could take a while...

iPhone for me? Please?

Okay, so it goes like this.

Mid-July my friend at work decided it was time for a new phone, which got me thinking about the fact that my own current phone is from 2006, and since I'm on Rogers I'm definitely due for a new one. My current phone plan is good, but I want a data phone.

Back from the North

I'm back! T's cottage was fabulous, as always. Days spent lounging, reading, crafting and keeping him from electrocuting himself with the giant-ass batteries in the basement.

The List - an updated version

Wow, looks like the last time I updated the list was two years ago. Maybe I should revisit!

I’m gonna narrow it down to five I think, in no particular order:

The return of the Tarot round-up

So many new lovelies for my collection! I know I shouldn't be buying more, but I'm going to do some whittling (eventually). Anyway, I've had a busy few months, so here's what I have to tell you about...

What does it all mean?

I’ve just had my first dream set in my new place. And it was a weird one:

Going to a forum.

I got an invite today to RGD Ontario’s In-house Breakfast Forum next week, and I’m going (as long as I can get registered on Monday, no one was there when I called today) – I’m excited too, ’cos it’s not often something like this comes along that’s actually relevant to me. I mean, I always get the PM Forum emails but they have no bearing on what I do. Also, one of the panelists was my agent when I first worked for MacTemps 13 years ago (he’s now the president of his own company, cool), and that’s pretty awesome.

I Allow Media To Sway My Opinions.

Okay, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. But honestly, I don’t listen to the radio anymore, everything sounds like the same crap (I don’t have satellite radio, and yes I know that would change my mind). But I like new stuff I hear in commercials and on TV shows and in movies.

Random ramblings

Okay, so I know I’m lazy. I’m still digging out from under all the moving boxes, but I’m making slow progress every day so I’m not overly disappointed in myself.

Guilty, but with an explanation...

(yes, from Bananas)

Okay, I see it’s been, um, NINETEEN WEEKS since I posted! No way am I going to do a complete update. But I’ve had my reasons.

2010: The Death List

Okay, so we’re not wishing these people would die, these are merely predictions for the coming year. Believe me, I’d be heartbroken over the deaths of a number of people on this list. But not all of them!

To be honest, we do this ever year on New Year’s Eve or thereabouts, but we always forget to write them down. Not this time!

A new year... a new decade...

...a new Doctor! But I'm not watching that until Sunday, so no discussing it...

Anyway, my New Year's Eve was great, up in KW again at J*&P&A's house, generating new Jersey Shore names for us all (I'm apparently H-Cat) and playing Wii Sport Resort (I'm getting one soon, maybe today). And also discussing our favourite albums of the last decade.
