I know I’ve posted this link before, but honestly if you don’t already have City of Skies bookmarked on your computer, and they’re not part of your morning internetting routine, I think you’d really like their blog. Plus, they are all good buddies of mine, and I love them very, very, very much.
Deep Thoughts, by Jack Handy
I’m not sure how many of you even remember SNL in the early 90’s- but my Mom, having been a fan of SNL since Gilda Radner’s days, watched it every saturday night with us, and I think Deep Thoughts may have shaped my homour to what it is today (I’ll eat some humble pie later, I promise). Peruse through this list of deep thoughts, you won’t be disappointed. One...
Lucas and I were walking down Main St. the other day and saw a poster for an upcoming “Anti-Nazi Riot”…sit and marinade on that for a little while. I just have so many questions. Aren’t we ALL anti-nazi? Where and what exactly ARE we rioting? What do we hope to gain? What could we possibly do to show the last remaining neo-nazis just how much we hate them? And even...
Ever heard of Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland?
I ‘stumbled-upon’ Hotel Kakslauttanen about a year ago, and every time I start thinking about a trip to the Nordic circle (which is often) I think about it again. This place sounds amazing, and like every human being should experience this, or something on par at least! Read some blurbs about the hotel below and check out the amazing pictures of the glass, and snow igloos. (Side note:...
Today’s post comes on recommendation from my friend Spencer! I used to love Blogotheque’s take away shows (circa 2007 when Arcade Fire used a magazine being ripped for their percussion, if you haven’t seen it- look it up directly after this!) but had fallen off the band wagon as of late. Something about black cab sessions London allure trumped the Paris appeal for me. Anyways,...
1000 Awesome Things →
This website is equal parts cheezy, and awesome (as per website title), but it’s definitely worth checking out. You will find yourself having the odd “that is AWESOME” conversation in your head in response to some of these. My favourite, of the most recent, has to be #557 When you fold a piece of paper so it fits in the envelope perfectly. So what, I’m a dork. ...
Club Monaco is bringing back their logo sweaters,...
Remember the Club Monaco logo sweatshirt? If you grew up in the late ’80s or early ’90s, we’re betting you do—along with zipper-bottomed Jordache jeans, Tretorns, and pretending that the lady walking ten steps behind and yelling your name was just some weird stranger, not your mom, it was the height of tween chic. Citing popular demand, Club Monaco has just reissued the crewneck, along...

AMAZING WEBSITE →
If you, like me, are looking for a new place to live - my friend BENDER introduced us to this fabulous website last night, that takes a bunch of different rental sites (like craigslist) and combines them into a city map for you, so you can break down all the rentals by area. It also allows you to set parameters. Love it!!
In case you don’t know this song, it’s...
Guest Blogger: Meaghan Proctor's Time in India
For those of you who don’t know: my other half (Meaghan Proctor) is in India, Kolkata to be precise, on the final leg of her 2 years Master’s Degree of Occupational Therapy race. She is doing her final (and international) placement at the Indian Institute of Cerebral Palsy (IICP) and has been keeping a travel blog, not only about her time at the IICP, but also about some touring they...
I’m not a vegetarian, and as horrible as it sounds - footage of seals being clubbed doesn’t make we want to stop eating meat, either. The only compelling reasons, for me, for being vegetarian are the implications of the livestock industry on our planet, and the effects of the steroids used in livestock production. I read something interesting on GOOP lately (if you don’t know...
