Oh Siri

Going to watch the Tourist tonight and I wanted to know how long it is. I decided to ask Siri instead of googling it. After she finally understood I was looking for the Tourist and not the Terrace I asked how long it is.

"The Tourist is 102 minutes."
"Thank you."
"It is I who should be thanking you."
"I don't know, I've wondered that myself."

Interesting response Siri...


I hate shopping. Shopping online is never easy either because things often do not fit when you are not a rectangle. I just love when I find a pair of pants that fits awesome...because I'll buy then in every colour! Lime today as I perused Old Navy. Was blessed with good luck and my ass was happy in a particular pair of pants. Brought it home in 3 different colours. Makes it easy...

A good evening

Honey nut Cheerios and and the beginning of my next book club book. Luckily the book just so happens to be good so far!

My secret

I love devilled eggs. There are so many ways to make them. Some people put bacon in them, others just a little but of mustard. My grandmother puts some fish in the mix so it is more like a pâté nestled o. The top of the egg white. As for mine, it's usually the egg yolks, mayo, Dijon mustard and some smoked paprika. My favourite secret ingredient to add is a bit of my aunt's home made zucchini relish. Mmmmmm....

Buffalo porcupine meatballs with a mushroom sauce, all from scratch! I usually just pour a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup overtop. My gluten-free adventure has begun so now I'm experimenting on finding ways to replicate some things. This one worked out great!

Poster idea


I had no idea they made slurpees this big! No wonder there are weight problems. I buy one and freeze it, then eat it over several weeks.

I recently had a fruit fly problem due to ripe mangos. The flies are now gone but the funny thing is I kinda wish I had some back.

I had some potted flowers on my windowsill. They were purchased at a grocery store so I knew they would not last long. I noticed they had begun wilting even though they were well watered so I threw them out. Lifting the flower pot I noticed this little guy sitting in his web. I also noticed all the corpses of fruit flys under his web. Pretty cool! Now to get some flies back so he/she has something to eat!

Thanks Kiff

No better company when I'm sick in bed than a cuddling purring cat.

Genuine request or original pickup line?

So I'm sitting at my position at a conference and the first session has begun so I'm alone in a room. A young man walks by the door and looks in. A few seconds later I see him back up and look in again. I look at him, he waves. I smile. He leans into the room and with a thick accent and broken English he tells me that he is there every weekend for an English class and he pays close attention to all the doors down the hall and this was the first time this door was open. He asks why so I tell him simply about the conference that is on. He leans into the door and asks if he can come in. I nod approval. He tells me about his class and how they need friends to practice their English. "Do you want to friend?"

I wasn't sure what to say to that...then was even more unsure when he asked for my phone number. I settled for e-mail addresses. I try to believe he was genuine in wanting contact for that reason. He tracked down a pen and came running back with his e-mail written on a big bumper sticker from the educational institution we were currently in. He took mine down on a business card he had in his wallet...we shall see.

The working breakfast...

Working at a conference today. I'm leading the hospitality room where people can inquire, register and presenters check in. This is sitting beside me on my table. No one has asked but I've gotten a few disgusted's awesome.

Out of context...

I see how this makes sense when the lid is being put on. Sitting and drinking my coffee sans lid...this statement made me giggle for some reason and spurred a random moment of confusion.

So old...

I was reminded of this video today...


Pretty good lunch I must say.

Spinach, papaya, blueberries, coconut water, chia seeds, cayenne pepper and some lemon juice.

Nice and spicy, warms me up in this cold weather. Only problem is I was on the phone at work for 10 minutes, went back to it and it had turned into a jelly like substance! I guess that's what spoons are for!
