I Bring Pictures of Beautiful People in Love!

I’ve recently started watching Fringe on Netflix to bide the time before I graduate in 22 days. If you are into sci-fi and/or the paranormal and liked X-Files then I highly recommend it. Not to say anything against X-files, because nothing can possibly touch the Mulder/Scully dynamic, but Fringe has a much better and more consistent mythology in my opinion. BUT what I really want to talk about is the strange obsession its lead me to – that of searching all the information on the adorable couple of Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger. At first I was trying to figure out why Joshua Jackson looked ill all the time but then I just kept seeing them together and that was it. I have this weird thing about so-called “celebrities.” I have to know who they are married to/partners with or dating. Why? I cannot answer that. I probably shouldn’t be admitting this. But just look at how adorable Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger are!!

So well dressed and so in love! It kills me! According to Wikipedia they have homes in Vancouver and Paris. Adorable!

Another Guest Blog!

Today, for a special Triple-Post Thursday treat, we bring you our lovely friend Nicole once again, who really just wanted to share her love of attractive, well-dressed, presumably kind-hearted people with you. And to that I say why the heck not? I love attractive, well-dressed, kind people as do the rest of you, I’m sure. So who wouldn’t love this special treat before the long weekend? Continue reading

What’s in a name? (It’s almost as if the Middletons knew.)

I’ve been thinking up names for my hatchback, that I haven’t even bought yet, but will likely have done in the near-ish future. It’s a bit tricky to be honest. I’ve been tossing around Lucy, Ruby, Ruth, Mildred, Millicent, Hank, Bruce, Parker (it seems mildly punny), and Pippa, in memory of my long-dead cactus. I could call her Pips for short. I’ll let you know what I chose when I, you know, choose a car. Continue reading

Sugar is a reasonable substitute for caffeiene

If there’s one thing I’ve learned while working in the corporate world it’s that sugar is a reasonable substitute for caffeine. Don’t freak out, I’ve learned a lot of other really important things too like how to write a proper press release and how to work a photocopier. But it would take a lot of time, and it would be not be very interesting, for me to sit her and write out how to write a proper press release and how to work a photocopier. Besides all photocopiers are different, and that’s what Google’s for. (Our photocopier is named Mildred. I just named her. It felt right.) Continue reading

The Return To The She Wolf

I talked about this briefly yesterday, but the more I thought about it, the less I was able to just leave it at that. There are so many things that are hilarious about this video. And song.

And this is why I have road rage, short hair, and can’t stand people who whisper at the movies.

Hey. Hi guys. Hey. I haven’t got much interesting to say today, thought I’d just disclaim that right up front, so I’m going to share all the things that are new with me. There aren’t many, but they’re still kind of interesting. It’ll be cool. Continue reading

The Voice Season Premier: “Awooooo!”

Tonight, in approximately 30 minutes, I’m going to watch the season premier of The Voice. I know what you’re thinking. “But, Hilary, you swore you would never watch it again!” And that’s true. I did give up on The Voice forever and always. Or so I thought. Continue reading

Chevron and ikat

It’s the end of March and it’s still bloody cold in my city. So, to compensate I think I’m just going to fill my apartment with chevron and ikat patterned stuff in crazy colours, because nothing says summer to me like busy patterns. Is that weird? Maybe that’s weird. Continue reading

As The End of School Arrives…

I will be graduating this year after what feels like an extremely long time, especially when it comes to particular classes, such as A History of Literary Production, in which the books are far longer than my attention span and the professor seems to talk excessively. Honestly, I don’t know how she manages to make an eighty minute class feel like it’s literally lasted days, but she definitely has a knack for it. And what a useless skill. Continue reading

Car shopping Mum vs Dad

I’ve started shopping around for a used car because tbh the bus is not entirely that convenient. In some ways transit it awesome, and I love my bus driver (he’s just the nicest man) but in other ways … well, I’m getting tired of listening to this woman’s cranky two-year old (every time!), taking groceries on the bus is less than ideal, and I’d like the convenience of being to go wherever, whenever, without transferring three times.
