Show & Tell: Apr 08/11

This has been a pretty interesting week.  Had my Kathryn come for a visit with her man Andrew and they left early Wed morning.  Had some great beach time and lots of work time, brainstorming to take over the world 🙂  It was so nice to have one of my friends come down for a visit.  The rest of you should get your butts here before I’m back in TO for Spring/Summer.  We’ve got room for you 🙂

  • O’Nizzle has been posting gems on Twitter/FB and this one made me LOL – The 10 best obnoxious responses to misspellings on Facebook.
  • Speaking of O’Nizzle, SheDoesTheCity just did a profile on the lovely Lauren O’Neil – if you don’t already follow her/read her blog, you better jump on board quick.  I’ve had the pleasure of hanging and working with this girls since she hit the city last year and I definitely <3 her
  • Why is predicting the future so hard?  In the year 2011 we were expected to drive flying cars, have hoverboards and jetpacks and our fashion definitely wasn’t a reinterpretation of the 80’s & 90’s.  Johnny Holland Magazine has a great article called This Ain’t Your Parents Future that’s worth a read.
  • I’m not so much thinking of retirement, but places where I can travel to and live for a while inexpensively.  Still a good post to share 9 Places Where You Can Retire and Live Like a King
  • Ever go to a bar and are not sure what kind of beer to drink?  Here’s a handy guide to help you out “What Beer Should I Drink”
  • Thought this was funny since I’ve been in the US off and on for the past few months – What Is Your State Worst At
  • I love horses and ponies of all kinds (since I was a little kid) and this video showing a Mini named Midnight, that was neglected by his previous owners, get a new lease on life by getting a prosthetic leg made me tear up.
  • Another funny clip that I saw first on HLN News last week – Christian women in Texas are Pole Dancing for Jesus – it’s funny how putting “For Jesus” in the title makes it ok in their minds.  I wonder if “Same-Sex Marriage for Jesus” would be as acceptable? Oh, and I have nothing against pole dancing or Christians.
  • Design student Andrew Kim has redesigned the iconic Coke bottle to make a more eco friendly and sustainable bottle.  What do you think of his design?  Would you care if your Coke bottle didn’t look like a Coke bottle?
  • Last week two awesome girls – Jordyn & Destinee – emailed me about a school project they had to do about their Celebrity Role Model.  And they wanted to use ME as their subject!  I was immensely flattered and it honestly made my week that they asked me.  Well they finished the video and did their presentation today.  Fingers crossed that they get an A+!  Here is the video they made – thanks again ladies.  You did a great job.
