This post is a bit
week overdue but last Friday Ty and I checked out the Gr8 Bit Show hosted by Ty’s buddy Skot Deeming aka MrGhosty.
If you know anything about me (and you should if you are a regular stalker of there here blog) you’ll know that I have big hearts for 8-bit games so an interactive visual arts show based around it was extra-appealing.
Skot’s site is here
, flickr set is here
, check ‘em out and see some of Skot’s awesome work!
I’m totally exhausted for some reason today; it was a weird morning. I slept in super late but still managed to run on schedule then lost my phone for 20 minutes and was late, then grabbed some Timmies fro breakfast and was extra-late and the three coffees I’ve pounded back don’t make me want a nap any less.
Ty, Owen and I are leaving for Connect at 2pm and I swear I’m beyond excited I just have no energy right now.
Luckily all I have to do is head home at lunch, shower and be there when Ty arrives with armsfuls of beer to put in the cooler and jump in Owen’s car when he gets there.
We’ll rock out to BNL, Heart, Ace of Base, Beck and the “50 Greatest Rock Hits” album that I am stashing onto my iPod for secret awesome tuneage.
I don’t have to drive so I can relax with my UK Cosmo (it’s still better than the US one, right?) and veg out. We’re driving with Owen so there’ll be lots of Tim Horton’s stops along the way, which I can so get behind.
This post is totally all over the place.
I just sneezed down into my circle scarf and got sneeze all over my glasses.

My ability to get nothing but head colds in the middle of a super-humid super-hot summer is uncanny; yesterday I left the office because I had a pounding migraine as a result of sinus pressure and it was no better today.
Spent the day doping myself up on Advil and decongestants.
Thought I had problems but I found out one of my fav Tweeters on the ‘ol Twitter, 104-yr old Ivy Bean (IvyBean104) died today.
I’ll miss her super-cute tweets; she just goes to show that social media truly knows no boundaries.
I hope if I live to be her age that I can be that savvy and cool, RIP Ivy.

Was feeling “blah” and kind of grouchy this morning so I retreated to Ty’s and feel so much better.
Funny how a change of scenery can change yr mood.
Gonna grab a quick bite at The Fyxx
before heading back to the 9-5 and polishing off a Friday afternoon before a trip to the gym.
Heading out to AceArt for the GR8 Bits Show
.I’m beyond excited for this! Not only is it free, but there’s art and video-game based music as well as cookies!
What more can a girl ask for?
Oh, to have it followed by a Saturday of tubing down a river with friends?
Perfect. C’mon weekend.

I love schnitzel and I always figured I’d get around to going to Kraut King, this really cool little diner located in the middle of a parkade on Garry St, downtown.
Now I can’t, because it closed as a result of the drunks that hang around outside.
It’s such a shame when hard-working people are driven out as a result of stuff like this; downtown isn’t a bad area per-se, we just have an ongoing problem in this city that nobody can seem to fix.
I makes me bloody sad.
RIP Kraut King.

Today a girl came over who was extremely irritating and gave me a holier-than-thou attitude because my roommate was making her dinner, so I hid in my room until they went away because he can’t ever bring normal, nice girls around. Nope.
I think she was trying to cockblock me.
Can you be cockblocked against something you have no interest in?
Some words for female cockblocking are:
Twat Swat (my personal favourite)
