Christmas Ornaments

M and I were at Hallmark the other day and she came rushing over to me, so excited because she found the perfect ornaments for us, right beside each other.  I said, “I bet mine is a shoe or a dress!…”  Oh yeah, I am gooooood!


A pink Barbie shoe for me, and a blond Barbie on a horse for M.
We couldn't have planned it any better if we tried!

A Motorbike, A Guy and A Dog

I saw this guy with his dog in the sidecar doing down 109 Street on Saturday.

My Buddies, Mono, Chlamydia and Polio

George, my Serta Counting Sheep that has been in my window for probably 5 years has been evicted, and replaced with the giantmicrobes Mono, Chlamydia, and Polio.



Polio guards my prescription sunglasses.  Stay away or he will get you!

Yesterday i was walking to my car (not wearing my glasses) and from a block away I saw something green in the window.  I thought, WTF!  That better not be a ticket, because I know I still have 2 minutes left on the parking meter!  I laughed to myself when I realised what it was.  Oh, that’s not a ticket, it’s just my happy little toy Chlamydia!


Pictures of my new bedroom fish, Flakey.  I hope I don’t have to tell him to keep it down so I can get some sleep.

White Fishy

I got a new fish on the weekend. It's a baby Beta and he is almost all white. I made a joke that I was joking to call it Dandruff and no matter how hard I try to pick a classy name (like Snowflake or Glitters or Crystal) the icky flake idea is funny. So Dandruff has evolved to Dander and now I have just decided to name him Flakey, like an icky flake of skin... or like the delicious Passion Flakies that are sold in the Twinkie isle of the convenience store.

Dress Up Keychain

I was shopping for a new keychain and when I saw this one, I knew it was for me.  A keychain… that you can change the clothes on…!!  That has my name written all over it.  Oh yah, it’s pink too!!


And it’s for a good cause, raising Breast Cancer Awareness, with part of the proceeds being donated to Rethink Breast

Don’t Touch My Lunch

I have new lunch containers.  I hope they will deter others from touching my lunch in the office fridge and at home.

Wanting to leave with Herpes and Chlamydia

Yesterday, I was in the gift shop at the Telus World of Science, when I saw a tag in a basket of stuffies that said “Ebola”. I laughed at the silly name for a snake.  Then I reached for a purple round one with eyelashes: “Kissing Disease”.  The sunny yellow one was “Herpes”.  The happy green one was “Chlamydia”.  The mean black one was “Polio”.

The toys were GIANT Microbes!  The tags show the microscopic view of the actual microbe.  How ingenious!!  I wanted to take them all home with me!  These 4 are my favourites:

As I was at the display, a guy and girl walked over and were talking about them.  He was showing her one that he picked up, and I took that opportunity to offer him “Herpres”, which he willingly took from me. hehehe!  I gave a stranger herpes.

I want to be a science teacher now, and have these little Microbes all over the classroom!  They have a website so you can order these cuties online GIANTMicrobes .

New Favourite Jeans

LUCKY Rider jeansThis past weekend I took at trip to the Lucky store and tried on practically every pair of jeans in that shop.  I found only one pair that fit me, their Easy Rider jeans (pictured on the right). 

Unfortunately, I left empty handed because they only had one pair of Easy Riders in my size and one leg was sewn shorter than the other!  The jeans were only 32” to begin with so hemming them was out of the question and with heels on, the un-even leg length was so obvious even a man would notice it.


GUESS Alana Bootcutjeans

A stop at the GUESS store proved to be more productive.  I tried on 2 pairs of jeans and went home with a pair of Alana Bootcut jeans! (pictured on the left) 

I also totally love those shoes and want to track them down.  I think they are the Cashy shoes (pictured below).GUESS Cashy shoes
