Episode 171 - Devin's Art Heist

It's a special Tuesday edition of Monday Night Football!

Isabelle had a bunch of her student art collection (her work and her student colleagues' work that is throughout our house) on display this past weekend as it was a convocation open house thing.  It was great to see all of it, but now we had to remove it and take it home.  Sorta felt like we were Ocean's 11.

Isabelle is off to Montreal and Quebec City tomorrow, so we did a quick grocery shopping trip today to pick up a few things.

I paid entirely with points!

I wonder how you get people to realize that they need festivals and art and such in a town?  We figure it has something to do with #awareness.  Indeed, often people don't know they need or want something until you point it out to them.

Have a great trip Isabelle!

Episode 170 - There Must Be Sunglasses Here Somewhere


So, we went shopping a day early as I have convocation tomorrow and Isabelle has a thing. 

isabelle is going to be juror for the Ontario arts Council which is pretty great.  Congratulations to her. 

We had a friend over tonight, so we made pasta, it was a first for us.  Sorta kinda worked out.

Oh Jon came along on this one, and even chose one of the songs.  It is getting close to the end of the school year, so they have a lot of oh let's call them 'empty days' so Jon took the day off.  Yup, we got a box at the LCBO.

Episode 169 - Stuffed Cow Puppets

Pretty good title right?

So Isabelle has a print in a provincial competition.  Or, maybe it is four of them, anyway, it is awesome and wonderful.  It is a blind juried show, which is also great.  I'm really proud of her.  She however cannot take compliments and makes various noises when complimented.

Yesterday was the ninth anniversary of my Dad's death.  On facebook I posted a series of stories about him as I do every year.  I'm not sure how many there are, but this year was the most.  Isabelle thinks I ought to publish them.

Newspapers are not long for this world, though news organizations seem to be ok.  They're moving to the web exclusively.  Isabelle wants a semi curated news feed to show up in her facebook feed, which would be nice.  

Oh, I have a friend in Russia, he seems really cool.  He's also a psychologist.  We talk all of the time.
